IP2 brought maybe 40%. It's not "catering". Our server company said we have to do this or the whole site goes offline. We've already changed server companies 3 times. We have no choice.

ip2 brought majority of the initial traffic here. bowing down makes this place no better than reddit. i wont post that server company name out of respect but them pulling this shit shouldnt even shock you if you knew anything about them

The server company homepage literally says they support "black lives matter and social justice", now the biggest sub on saidit is a tranny sub /s/GenderCritical so i guess the server company will be happy.

[–]anfd 50 insightful - 6 fun50 insightful - 5 fun51 insightful - 6 fun -  (7 children)

GenderCritical is not a "tranny sub", it is a sub that's critical of transgender ideology and one that "social justice warrior" types would rather shut down.

    GenderCritical is a sub of sjws who are only "critical" of trannys, youre morons who got fucked over by your own side because you disagreed on an issue

    The last wave of refugees seriously brought the Bubonic plague with them.

    These people really are a cancer.

    [–]bobbobbybob 8 insightful - 3 fun8 insightful - 2 fun9 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

    no it didn't. Saidit had been here a long time before IP2 arrived. Although IP2 came in like they were jesus.

    Why persist with this erroneous information? This site is run by @magnora7, who knows what is actually happening.

    [–]FreeMaxB 21 insightful - 6 fun21 insightful - 5 fun22 insightful - 6 fun -  (2 children)

    way more than 40% especially when we first joined. the whole front page was all upvoted ip2 posts where we had to switch it so didnt show on the front page. 90% of all other boards were dead and if you go by post count its not even close ip2 has more combined activity than the rest of the boards combined. we were only gonna to use when boasted the site traffic soon as one guy bitched no longer useful

    Its fine everything is fine....

    The statistics are whatever the fuck I say they are.

    [–]SuperConductiveRabbi 4 insightful - 4 fun4 insightful - 3 fun5 insightful - 4 fun -  (10 children)

    I'm sure they'll stop there

    [–]magnora7[S] 8 insightful - 1 fun8 insightful - 0 fun9 insightful - 1 fun -  (9 children)

    Well... IP2 was really the only part of saidit that actually violates their acceptable use policy, so yeah it will pretty much stop there.

    [–]Grimoires_penis 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

    Just dropping a message to say thanks to you for all you put up with by allowing IP2 to hang around as long as we did. In a better world, we’d still be here. We gotta draw a line in the sand and make stand somewhere.

    Maybe there's a moderation rule I'm asking you to break but, uh, what violations generally? Like, I know I can go check the moderation log, but since I have no dog in the fight, I'm just asking for an off the cuff opinion rather than hard statistics.

    These were some of the links reported: https://i.imgur.com/a5IxIEc.png

    I think some of them are a reach, but the community did have several problems along these lines that were occurring again and again

    [–]gof-urself2 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (4 children)

    absolutely all unrelated, by different owners, and fake af

    [–][deleted] 2 insightful - 3 fun2 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 3 fun -  (3 children)

    not fake, i can confirm those post were in fact posted on lp2

    lp2 is a cesspool that should be de-platformed everywhere

    [–]gof-urself2 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

    fake as in they do not lawfully represent the owners of the material reported

    [–][deleted] 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

    lp2 mods endorse and encourage this behavior, you are still doing it on the new site

    who what

    [–]SaidOverRed 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

    Thank you. That seems like a fair assessment. So far, all of your actions seem like you've really had your arm behind your back. Hopefully this will make things easier for you since they will be elsewhere, rather than harder. Thank you for the transparency. It is the enemy of those who want to shut down free speech.

    [–]hajamieli 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (4 children)

    You're such cowards. Pick a server company that doesn't submit to harassment or better yet, distribute your servers.

    [–]magnora7[S] 5 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 0 fun6 insightful - 1 fun -  (3 children)

    Why don't you do it? Are your arms broken? Build your own alternative, if it's so easy.

    [–]hajamieli 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

    Building is easy, it's what I've been doing as a profession for the past quarter of a century. Marketing to an audience is not easy. You know the marketing well, apparently.

    [–]magnora7[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

    Thanks. But the marketing was by far the easiest part of all the things we had to do.

    [–]hajamieli 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

    Anything you're good at is easy, which is exactly what I've been saying. If I was you, I'd have several dedicated servers across the world only leasing the connection from whichever ISP is going to care the least about political terrorism from the far left fascists.

    [–]bloodybloody 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

    How the fuck you gonna run a forum under the guise of free speech and a free internet yet you go with a provider that allows bullshit like this? Enjoy the empty website pal. Also if you never leaked the provider 10 months ago Piss Boi wouldn't have been able to bitch an cry to the provider.

    [–]FediNetizen 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (3 children)

    I've never needed to host a serious website, but I'm amazed that there aren't companies that will just ignore trolls like this.

    Also that explains all the spam on the front page I guess.

    [–]magnora7[S] 6 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 0 fun7 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

    They're liable for the content on their servers, so they can't just turn a blind eye. It's very hard to find a decent server company that doesn't operate this way.

    [–]Horrux 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

    Maybe in Russia? ;-)

    [–]blue_gryphon 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

    We've already changed server companies 3 times. We have no choice.

    If you changed comapnies 3 times, why in the love of god are you still hosting in the US?

    1 of them was in switzerland, they couldn't handle us and booted us after a DDOS attack

    [–]send_nasty_stuff 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

    Our server company said we have to do this or the whole site goes offline.

    Don't you see? Losing trust in the community and getting the reputation that you censor and ban speech is just as bad. Both options 'pull the plug' on the community. Both options take saidit offline.
