That's great news, thanks once again D3. Seems like you're always saving our asses here.

Imo, I'd get a couple people at least to nuke spam. No permissions besides post removal, should be a quick glance at the mod log to make sure it's just spam and they aren't editorializing. Not sure if that's possible but I think people are more than willing to do a bit of janitorial work if it is.

[–]d3rr[S] 6 insightful - 3 fun6 insightful - 2 fun7 insightful - 3 fun -  (7 children)

Yep, great idea and it's already in motion a bit. If anyone wants to help remove spam hit me up.

Sick, thanks. Tell me when spam is posted, and I will make you a mod there, and then you can combat the spam in that sub from there on out. Once that happens, you can just check this page to catch reported spam: https://saidit.net/s/mod/about/modqueue/

A while back I offered to help M7 with a feature to make it easier to moderate shit. Got hella distracted by the election steal..., but feel like I will soon have the bandwidth to accomplish something like that. Will follow up

Thanks for stepping up. Hope M7 is well and just taking a breather.

No dank memes here. Thanks for your honesty and due diligence

I enjoy how weird this site is and the recent drama weirded me out A LOT more than any of the fringe pieces I'd read because it was always about engaging in conversation instead of having any preconceived notion about someone. (Sry Chipit, I misjudged you far too long ago)

That being said....

M7, we miss you and hope you are well.

TAM, I am truly sorry to see you step down but I hope you continue to participate in the community and I hope you are also well.

GLHF and most of all, let's grow our brains

Thanks to the mods and admin and people who support the site but like I said before in another thread FUCK THIS SHIT ...nobody wants to go back to the shithole called reddit. Maybe its time to link to a new home...what are the places? Voat now dead, i guess there's ruqqus, Bitchute, Gab and what else? Perhaps Minds is a site and Rumble and bitwave.tv seems to be a thing, I guess there are the old blogs, bulletin boards, f bbs bulletin board forum diaspora websites that still might exist after the dot com crashes...you still get the weird conspiracy Qanon pizzagate shit at the chans like 4chan....poal, seems ok

[–]send_nasty_stuff 5 insightful - 3 fun5 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

voat is now on voat.xyz but I don't know much about it. I'm having trouble registering on it which is something I had trouble with on the last voat.

Bitchute, Gab

These aren't structured the same way reddit and saidit are though. You'd probably lose most people here if you asked them to go to gab (twitter clone) or bitchute (youtube clone). What he need is a viable reddit clone which is what saidit was suppose to be.

New site called s/Cassy is in develop iirc, I literally lost track of all this shite months back so I don't know what's really going on in this site anymore.

[–]LarrySwinger2 6 insightful - 3 fun6 insightful - 2 fun7 insightful - 3 fun -  (1 child)

Yep. We're developing multiple things. My forum is being rolled out in a limited way and currently it's only accessible through Tor: http://ynpxg2vmxftysze4cxqxao4ylv22vtfptxjk6zwlkilzki4avn23miqd.onion

A clearnet URL will follow later, and a Lenny instance is being deployed as well. Subscribe to /s/Cassy if you want to stay updated. Also, if you don't use Tor but want to visit my forum once it's on clearnet, send me a PM so I can invite you when that's ready.

Edit: it turns out that it can also be accessed using Brave.

Poal has decent content, but the admins are even worse than TAM. Drama fags who attack users they disagree with on a regular basis.

My account is at -93 because I agreed with someone that "AOC commonly attacks users accounts". (it's really AOU, but I call it AOC because it acts like one.)

Ruqqus is kind of weird. Communities.win is kind of okay, but is being overrun by "IP2", and mods are censorious.

New voat exists, but the UI is so ugly I can't stand to look at it. Despite all this drama, saidit still comes out on top, imo.

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

There's no alternative except for Saidit. All the other websites you have mentioned are shit, echochambers, technically wrecked or more unsafe (FBI is on to you).

I moved from Voat to Saidit and couldn't find a valiable alternative since then.

[–]Chipit 6 insightful - 3 fun6 insightful - 2 fun7 insightful - 3 fun -  (1 child)

All I ever do is post articles and comment.

Turns out, when you ban people from Reddit, most are banned for bullshit reasons. But some are banned for good reasons, and they ended up here, and they use this site WAY too much because it's their replacement for a social life. Others are paid social media influencers whose job it is to disrupt and demoralize so that the site can't get big and have influence in the larger culture.

You just want reality to be papered over and have people be good normies who pretend everything is fine. Things are far from fine.

Nice. I disagreed with TAM's decision but the attacks on her were just abhorrent. However, to scour past PMs to dig up dirt and try to frame JC is a bit malicious and not proper admin behaviour. As for the allegations, I'm not going to go there but I don't believe any crime has been committed.

Perhaps in a not-so-distant future when everything has been censored and purged from the Web, we'll reminisce about the old Saidit, smile and shed a gin-soaked tear thinking about those past shit storms and how good we had it. Maybe.

[–]Jesus 6 insightful - 3 fun6 insightful - 2 fun7 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

Saying saidit is a goner as admin is defeatist shill rhetoric. There is no way TAM wasn't part of some operation and if he/she wasn't, she sure made he/she seem like she was.

[–]Node 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (10 children)

I reminisce about the old Saidit right now. Was me, M7, and roughly two or three other accounts. It was antiextremes.com back then, and pretty quiet as a brand new site.

By the way, TAM is a teenage male pretending to be a girl... Calling him a her just feeds into his delusions.

His attacks on Saidit seem typical of that kind of person. As an admin, he compiled a list of TOS violations of the host company, and published them with links on saidit. He even claimed the violations were actual felonies, and mused about contacting the FBI to investigate saidit users he disliked. This was less than a day before the first recent outage... Was it really a card issue, or did the host take TAMs claims as an admin seriously?

That's just one incident. There have been many others. Aside from fetishing the PoD, making a teenage tranny an admin was possibly one of M7s worst decisions.

[–]Optimus85 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

I know TAM is transgendered. I do have issues with MSM pushing transgenderism down our throats and forcing acceptance. If people are uncomfortable with transsexuals, so be it. You can't force people to change their values but you also have to let people live their lives on their own terms as long as they're not harming other people.

If he/she wants to be referred as "she" I don't really care delusion or not. Is it a mental illness? A hormonal imbalance? I don't know. Why do some people prefer people from the same sex? I don't know either. As long as they're not pushing their agenda or breaking my balls I will be accepting. The LGBT movement needs to come to terms with the fact that not everyone approves and that acceptance cannot be forced.

That aside, the timing of those outages is a little fishy and I wouldn't put it past TAM that she would report "spicy" content to the authorities or the web hosting company. Needless to say, the recent drama has made me reconsider my stance on TAM.

[–]socks 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (7 children)

It was antiextremes.com back then

I think Saidit would gain users and activity if this would develop again, at least in some form. It's also perhaps one of the reasons M7 took /s/DebateTheRight NeoNazis off /s/all (He also took /s/ShitpostNews off /s/all .)

If I may support TAM for a moment:

Regarding TAM's identity: it's not up to you to decide what it is.

Regarding TAM's work as an admin: it was difficult, time-consuming, thankless, shitty, hard work, and admin decisions are sometimes unpopular, but they were for the purpose - in every case - of addressing Saidit's very basic, simple, rules, so that those who abided by them would remain, while she tried to reduce some of the chaos.

/s/DebateTheRight NeoNazis

This is so ludicrous that it's like you're trying to undermine anyone who criticizes Nazis..

You're right about TAM's identity. It's up to reality to decide what it is. Having a penis makes you a male. Having a vagina makes you a female.

Anyway, I think TAM and company have largely succeeded with their plans for saidit.

Not happening.

You're right about TAM's identity. It's up to reality to decide what it is.

It's their life, not ours. (And why should anyone give a damn about the private lives of others. We're not living in a reality TV similation.)

Anyway, I think TAM and company have largely succeeded with their plans for saidit.

Why do so many on Saidit LOVE to select hidden causes or conspiracies for relatively obvious events (and I like conspiracy studies, if there is sufficient reliable evidence)? Anyone following their approaches (including M7, D3 and Fred) knew very well that they were genuinely devoted to supporting Saidit, at great expense. That said, I wonder if they know that most right-wing folks will never accept them for who they want to be. What annoys me the most - as a writer - is the use of they/them for singlular pronouns. Really pisses me off. Young whippersnappers changing hundreds of years of language. Who do they think they are? Really.

"What annoys me the most - as a writer - is the use of they/them for singlular pronouns. Really pisses me off. Young whippersnappers changing hundreds of years of language. Who do they think they are? Really."

Do you not see the irony in this, socks? You are defending a man calling himself a woman, then act like a language purist on the "they/them" issue.

I mean...do you just not see the irony?

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

Not happening.

It's almost happening, imo. Exaggerated criticisms to the point of ludicrousness break their credibility, and can call related criticisms into question. "Hmm, maybe some of those other claims are false too?" Of course, that will only happen among those who favor cognition over dogma.

why should anyone give a damn about the private lives of others.

Because humans are a social creature, and most of us participate in society. Those who go out of their way to corrupt or damage our society (faggots, trannies, pedophiles, etc.) need the same kind of attention a T-cell pays to invading disease vectors in the human body.

I like conspiracy studies, if there is sufficient reliable evidence

You'd have to watch TAMs account, because he deletes the evidence on a regular basis. But you've undoubted seen a number of his attacks on saidit users from his position as an admin...

I don't care if he wishes he weren't destroying saidit. That is what he's doing when he drives users off the site in the name of saidit. I think it's related to his level of insanity that causes him to pretend to be a girl.

But to be fair, perhaps we should congratulate him for at least sticking to the human species? He hasn't had hooves made for his hands and a goat suit made so he can eat grass on mountain hillsides with the native fauna. Afaik, he also doesn't believe he's a member of the deer species, who just happens to be able to speak English and work in the tech field.

Perhaps I would have retained some sympathy for that creature if he hadn't made all those false claims about me, and threatened to "report me to the FBI"? But he went ahead and revealed his true character, and that's something you don't just forget.

[–]Optimus85 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (4 children)

I'm not an admin. With the recent outages and M7 missing and unresponsive, it's fair to assume Saidit's future is uncertain. But it's more than suspicious that the attacks on TAM, the allegations against another user and the site going down occur during the same time frame. You and u/node might be right.

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

TAMs attack on me happened less than 12 hours before the first outage in this ongoing series. Not sure what you think I might be right about, but you should put me in the "not a fan of TAM" category.

[–]Optimus85 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

You might be right about TAM going to the web hosting company or authorities with potential "illegal" content on Saidit although there's no way of knowing for sure. Why is the site back up a mere two days after being down? But yeah, Tam has rubbed a lot of users the wrong way.

I want to apologize to /u/TheAmeliaMay for everything that I have said. I misjudged your character. To understand where I come from, I am very opposed to censorship and believe in giving people a second chance (and a third, and a fourth...)

If u/TheAmeliaMay wants to be an admin again at some point, I will vouch for him/her. She is the first admin that I've seen listen to community feedback for the past several years and I feel ashamed that I was so hostile & direct towards you.

I was mistaken.

I hope that you can forgive me.

[–]noice 10 insightful - 3 fun10 insightful - 2 fun11 insightful - 3 fun -  (5 children)

I have no idea how I feel about TAM anymore. That was sketchy as FUCK. Yeah, they've always been pretty outwardly gracious and hardworking, but the metric of trust is on a different axis. That one has been set back for TAM, bigly.

[–]Enza 11 insightful - 2 fun11 insightful - 1 fun12 insightful - 2 fun -  (4 children)

I can’t believe how TAM spoke to me. I innocently asked them to elaborate on their statement about Jason being a pedophile, as I actually took the time to read the PM’s and they didn’t say anything bad, sexual, or incriminating at all, and it wasn’t why he was being banned, it was just slander at that point imo.. then TAM showed me their true face..

You’d be hard-pressed to find a comment with me getting nasty or emotional with anyone; I don’t attack people here or call them names, and I’ve been here for pretty much two years now. I’ve never had a problem with a single user. I don’t respond to attacks, I keep it moving. Most people here are chill with me.

Out of no where, I suddenly became apart of the twisted narrative “that I was one of Jason’s friends who call people names and attack others” for asking a question.

https://saidit.net/s/SaidIt/comments/7zv7/the_ujasoncarswell_vs_usocks_drama/tv8n?context=3

They flipped out on me for the first time ever - TAM and I always had chill interactions and were always kind to one another up until that moment when I asked tam to elaborate and they decided to randomly attack me as an admin and break the “Pyramid of Debate” they were upholding in that thread supposedly as well as straw manned me and avoided my question. They randomly said I was “almost as bad as a pedophile” for asking them to elaborate on that bit, and explain how, where and what in the PM was a crime (as they stated they only leaked it because it was a “crime”).

After they flipped on me, avoided my question completely and straw-manned me by saying that, I didn’t even respond with hostility - I just told her she shocked me. I really didn’t believe they were capable of being that person, but everyone who told me they were, were right.

TAM revealed their true face to me. And as soon as this exchange happened, their thread starts getting astroturfed by new accounts like: https://saidit.net/user/superfox

They all attacked Jason, praised TAM and thanked them out of no where, all upvoted each other and did their best to rearrange comments (they moved one of the bottom comment threads saying “this is boring” to the top, when my exchange was originally in the top, literally 5 minutes after it happened by exploiting votes.. mine is still below it).

There’s still trouble on this site, it isn’t over. But with /u/d3rr in charge, things are much better for sure.

i did not know that jason is a pedophile? do you have any links to support this claim? thanks man.

that kind of stuff is disgusting and people should get thrown into prison so they can get punished.

good bye jason.

edit: jason, for gods sakes, maybe while you are in prison you can find religion and you can take woodchop classes and maybe you can learn to be a truck drivers assistant. do something postive with your life! I have heard rumors that you can get a full transgender operation(top and bottom and midsection) and the prison will pay for it. btw, i do not accept any collect calls from jails or prisons, sorry for the inconvenience.

  1. I said in that thread I disagree with banning Jason, that it's a bad precedent.
  2. TAM replied accusing me of being a troll or something which was humorous/ironic to me. TAM's message is deleted, I see.
  3. Then I was IP banned.
  4. After a day, my account was still in a limited state, unable to reply. Looks like I can post again now.

Really?

Why would you invite someone to admin who drummed up continual drama?

Why would you invite someone to admin who accused one of your main contributors of being a pedophile?

Why would you invite someone to admin who once they thought they were the only one left that they would just start runiing saidit as they liked?

Appointing TAM as admin was one of m7's worst mistakes.

SaidIt really is dead if after what just happened you feel TAM is in any way a good admin or good for the site.

Seriously, TAM probably drove more users away than anything else that has hit this site.
I get it is a thankless and tough job and help is welcomed but TAM didn't even do the job. They broke the pyramid rule constantly and stirred up so much drama, this place was a shit show during that.

    d3rr: We've been literally destroying the site for 3 years now. SaidIt is saidit, it's not going to change.

    oh my gawd.. if you worked for me as a moderator and you said some bullshit like that, it wouldnt take me two nanoseconds to shitcan you and throw your ass to the curb.

    you, mr d3rr, are an absolute amateur.

    i would actually be willing to help you, but not if your responses to me are going to be that you have accepted that the ship is sinking and that you think that is funny.

    did you even listen to one word that i said? this is why i do not enjoy consulting with kids, cuz they think like kids.

    if m7 put me in charge of this site, i would implement my suggested changes and the problems would evaporate.

    just fyi, i am working on a huge programming project that has taken me 17 years to complete.

    I am looking forward to absolute success.

    I am also looking forward to operating a very nice forum.

    dude you edited to add way more info, not my fault.

    If you want to implement block user per post/thread, that would be awesome, go for it, submit a PR on the github.

    [–]superfox 2 insightful - 3 fun2 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 3 fun -  (11 children)

    with all respect, i am not here to work as an engineer at saidit, but if i was this bullshit that is going on would come to a screeching halt in about two nanoflops.

    i am not here to work as an unpaid engineer in your little github nonsense.

    i made a suggestion, and you mocked me, and so i am finished making suggestions.

    i have been writing software since way the fk before you even knew what a diaper is.

    i was writing C code before your mama had hit puberty.

    and you cant sit up in your chair and attempt to have an intelligent conversation and attempt to formulate some plans to resolve the current situation?

    and you wanna joke that omg we have been destroying this site for three years?

    crawl the fk off my dick, with all respect.

    and if you wanna ban me, i will just make another account.

    With all due respect, your replies have been overly aggressive from the get-go. It's understandable that you don't want to do something without being paid, that you have years of experience, etc., but no one is demanding that you do anything. It was simply them letting you know that if you have something helpful to add, you're welcome to it. There's not an implied obligation or expectation here. Please chill the fuck out.

    I'm sorry I mocked you. I don't believe that being able to block a user in a particular thread would solve any of saidits core issues. I see the core issues as vote manipulation through multiple accounts and spam and the whole on /s/all vs not on /s/all dilemma.

    You're a shill... now provide evidence for this claim. Now it isn't an ad hominem but a hypothesis that you prove or disprove with evidence. If you don't have the time and intuitively think they're bots or shills report them and admin will look through their history.

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

    But a site admin accusing someone of pedophilia because they talked to a minor is OK?

    And thanks for keeping the ship afloat.

    TAM did an extraordinary job, this is genuinely disappointing. Thanks for fixing Carswell up, TAM did nothing wrong there, I support them.

    [–]Touchngo 6 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

    Thank you u/d3rr!

    [–]send_nasty_stuff 6 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 2 fun -  (11 children)

    Let me know if you need some help with admin duties!

    I am recruiting a non-admin anti-spam team. Tell me when spam is posted, and I will make you a "spam only mod" there, and then you can combat spam in that sub from there on out. Once you are a mod in a few places, you can also check this page to see spam reports: https://saidit.net/s/mod/about/modqueue/

    To be on this team your account must be at least 6 months old.

    [–]la_cues 6 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 2 fun -  (6 children)

    How effective is it when I click the report button for "spam" when I'm just browsing through /all? I feel like I report a good amount of the obvious prescription drug ones and dating and the like.

    Should I apply to be a part of this team? I just call it as I see it on here. I don't mod any large subs, or stuff like that.

    [–]d3rr[S] 5 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 2 fun -  (4 children)

    Reporting spam anywhere will only be effective if there's an active mod on that sub that sees and acts on your spam report (otherwise youve just hidden the spam post from yourself only). The problem with saidit is that many subs don't have active mods. So my solution with this spam team is to get all subs actively modded.

    I feel like I report a good amount of the obvious prescription drug ones and dating and the like.

    Yes, that's all I'm asking for, help with the obvious and easy spam. Yes, feel free to be on this team, that would be great. Hit me up when you see spam and you'll get added as a mod. Thank you.

    Between TAM, chipit, the missing owner, and such, I haven't been on saidit as much lately. But if I were to browse the front page and happened upon a post of [typical spam], would it work to send the link directly to you?

    [–]d3rr[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

    yes, that would be great, thanks

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

    Btw, if you ever have contact with M7 again, ask him if he wants to just sell the site to you and be able to relax again.

    He's acting like PuttItOut did when he grew tired of running voat.

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

    will only be effective if there's an active mod on that sub

    a chrome extension that is executed on the admin's terminal will act as an active mod 24 hours per day.

    https://medium.com/coding-in-simple-english/how-to-create-chrome-extension-7dd396e884ef

    simply program the extension to execute once every sixty seconds or whatever..

    when you report a post as spam, a site admin(such as d3rr) will need to be online to deal with these spam reports.

    there is another alternative...

    allow any user to submit a comment in that thread that consists of a the following single word: "spam"..

    then, the admin would already have a chrome extension running on his server that would look for posts that contain perhaps five "spam" comments and then his chrome extension would automatically delete that post.

    as a security feature, to prevent people from scamming this feature and incorrectly flagging legit posts as spam, perhaps his chrome extension would only pay attention to "spam" comments from users that have been approved to submit such request comments.

    i have already been warned to chill the fk out.

    I concur. Send_nasty is a legit member.

    Wish you could see your voting score on accounts, like on old voat.

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

    That would be cool.

    [–]superfox 3 insightful - 5 fun3 insightful - 4 fun4 insightful - 5 fun -  (2 children)

    hey, why not ban all users for 48 hours?

    [–]d3rr[S] 6 insightful - 12 fun6 insightful - 11 fun7 insightful - 12 fun -  (1 child)

    or every 1000th request, we send some poor bastard back to Reddit

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

    That would actually be funny.

    Glad to hear things will be getting back to normal, as such.

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

    oh yeah, we are way back to normal.

    of course most of the users here are imaginary sock puppets, but it sure looks good on paper.

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

    I don't agree with Carswell 100% of the time, but he is a solid member of this community... and fighting the shills back is an important job too. Will be glad to see him back.

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

    can we get a gofundme campaign or something? it'd be a couple dozen bucks to maintain such a site's servers i think but programmers' time cost a lot. so perhaps we can have something like wikipedia that has salary for its ten core members.
