Sweet!

What does this mean for the visible votes thing?

The visible votes thing is on the backburner for now because this rule change mostly addresses the problem of astroturfing, which was also the purpose of the visible votes thing.

It's on our list of things to revisit, but let's let this rule change settle in first and see how that goes. Also everyone seemed rather split on it in the asksaidit thread, there was far from a positive consensus about it. So we're hitting pause on the visible votes idea for a bit, I think.

Toxicity doesn't exist, its just an sjw created label to attack things that go against the narrative.

Toxicity doesn't exist

Then what would you call it?

a different view, lol. just cause you dont like a viewpoint of somebody, it doesnt mean its toxic. freedom of speech and expression should not be blocked in any way.

all speech and expression is protected, and no bs "private entity" excuse can or should be justified to violate that.

Did you ever read MartinTimothy's crazy AF posts? Each post closed with something like this:.

"Jews and Coretta King killed JFK"
Or...
"Muslims bathe in baby blood, Jews did 9/11"

The word is often misappropriated. However, toxicity definitely exists.

Yes and the posts of MartinTimothy seek to generate it

People can be toxic though, I used to be. Regardless of the beliefs. It's a social mindfuck from social media. Kinda like how mental illness can be contagious.

Nah it's real, I literally became a retard at one point due to my social life being full of retards. It took me months to roll that forward and with support of someone who also uses this website, I live life without my ears swimming in anger and stress. Sorry I might have understood a bit but it still applies.

nah its fake, thats just group mentality, lol.

a random left over trait of the past. you see it in dogs often, a normally calm dog can become agressive if its with another aggressive dog, pack mentality.

while i agree it could be hard for a person to stop being "stuck on stupid" (cb lingo, hehe). it doesn't mean your toxic.

we are in a soft civil war cause a big enough number of people throughout the nation and the world are stuck on stupid. it will go hot, idk when, im suprised it hasnt already tbh.

im just out here in the country waiting for shtf lol. im pretty much set with a pi zero, multiple cb radios and 2 sdr's
