Awesome! Good job. I would have not have know this was even a problem except for your post here.

By the way, dick pills sound painful. I prefer oral pills, personally.

Thanks!

Thanks for the great report!

We're in an info-war, and I know you guys do a lot on this front that we just don't see. The community needs to see these kinds of things. Openly communicating with the people is a necessary part of "leadership". Further, when people see your efforts, they'll respect and appreciate you much more.

For future reference, I need not be referenced or credited. I know some folks like me and some don't, so mentioning me carries that baggage. I do appreciate the sentiment, and more importantly I do appreciate that you cite things. So for what it's also worth I look forward to hearing about other folks you may interact with in the future. With less polarizing folks than me (or even you) IMO this is also terrific community building.

When I see iron left, "the americans" bot, or other disruptors, should I be reporting them to you instead of magnora7? Usually I use his username in a reply to call him to the thread. The "report" button does nothing, only goes to group mods, who rarely check their moderation queue.

It would definitely help to send me a DM whenever you see anything suspicious!

Thank you, of interest is that the very post under this one as it shows on the main page appears to be an ad. (Sexy Night Dresses posted to Business) Sorry.

[–][deleted] 5 insightful - 4 fun5 insightful - 3 fun6 insightful - 4 fun -  (0 children)

Yeah, a few ads showed up while I was taking a shower and eating lunch! Thanks for telling me!

Thanks for looking out for the interests of all saidittors! With all of the bullshittery going on everywhere it's good to know that someone is paying attention to what's going on behind the scenes to minimize the effects of bad actors. It really helps to maintain moral and the confidence one needs to continue to participate in what seems like one of the vanishingly few places of open and honest discussion about the goings-on here in the Matrix.

Is it possible to merge subs with similar names?

[–][deleted] 4 insightful - 4 fun4 insightful - 3 fun5 insightful - 4 fun -  (0 children)

No, but you can make one restricted (read-only) and simply have a link to the main sub; that's what I did with s/wiki: I made it into a portal to the actual wiki.

Now this is the kind of thing that admins should be doing. Squatting on popular names is a standard leftist tactic.

Using freedom of speech to advocate for the abolition of freedom of speech is where we draw the line.

I actually don't mind the spam so much. It says that Saidit is worth the time to spam, which is a nice compliment if you think about it.

[–][deleted] 6 insightful - 4 fun6 insightful - 3 fun7 insightful - 4 fun -  (0 children)

Yep, you know you're a threat when leftists go out of their way to attack you.

Some people think "freedom of speech" = "freedom to abuse and disrespect". They believe a person is wrong only if s/he is caught; some "lovers of freedom and capitalism as per Ayn Rand PBUH" call that "a free market's ability to self-regulate". It's all evidence that when some people will see an unlocked door, nothing inside them tells them they should back away in order to respect the owners. I guess it all comes down to the idea that people are threatening, they're all around us, and they want everybody to think that everyone is like them.

This comment makes no sense. Another tactic is polluting discussions with nonsense to derail the conversation.

Not gon'o lie: I thought he was the Americans bot at first.

Seems /u/Ilubalu is mainly thinking out loud, rather than making an explicit point.

Regarding one of his/her points, I've been curious about the way in which this post-Reddit 'free speech' news aggregator website functions, if it's so easy for the alt-right, or also 8Chan folks, to manipulate the discourses. It's also been interesting to see the moderates come and go. I am, howver, impressed with the admins, for keeping the website management somewhat simplified.

[–]Chipit 5 insightful - 4 fun5 insightful - 3 fun6 insightful - 4 fun -  (1 child)

Always front and center defending the website disruptors, this account is.

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

Doesn't make sense.

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

I actually agree with you here.

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

if it's so easy for the alt-right, or also 8Chan folks, to manipulate the discourses.

He's implying that "it's not his fellow leftists" who are canceling and censoring people off the internet.

[–]JasonCarswell 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

If that was his only point then I'd change my mind to disagree, but his obvious one-sided bias and omission excluding the Leftist asstrolls doesn't negate the fact that the discourses are manipulated - or at least they try.

Also, the "simplified management" has its pros and cons.

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

It appears to be a criticism of "lovers of freedom and capitalism", and the claim is that "freedom is threatening". Implicit in this context is that freedom of speech should be curtailed, and regulated.

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

The OP is about spam and thus "freedom to abuse and disrespect". I didn't read that "freedom of speech should be curtailed" or calling for censorship so much as simply stating that freedom has its pros and cons.

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

I'm saying rather clearly IMO that some people will try to own Saidit and everything else and control its content if they're allowed to do so.

shout outs to you...that's seriously generous.
