This is why we need decentralized platforms.

    Really? There have been signs for a long time. It started with banning lolicon, as it usually does. And they've been hitting political servers for a couple years now.

    Oh no! Not the cartoon child porn!

    You laugh, but it's a pattern I've noticed.

    Happened on reddit. Happened on rumpus... rumble whatever, that other reddit clone that imploded. Happened on gab. Happened on Discord.

    Admittedly there are exceptions. Twitter still allows lolicon but censors everything else. Perhaps the more important point is that as soon a site starts censoring one thing, the door's wide open to censor more, and they usually do.

    This site, which doesn't even allow any porn, is obviously off to a bad start. I haven't seen too much censorship, but maybe they just hide it better. Censors of any kind can't be trusted.

    Not allowing porn outright is the smart move. If you allow it eventually someone will do something wildly illegal and horribly controversial that will get you the unwanted attention and subsequent censorious attitudes you want to avoid.

    So... censor to avoid censorship. Have a funny-doot, good one.

    Happened on gab.

    Maybe because they don't want porn there, just like the policy on this site. But do they practice political censorship?

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

    Nah, this site at least says they only made the policy for pragmatic reasons. The Gab guy is completely off the deep end about. Thinks it's made by demons or some junk.

    But anyway, nobody admits to political censorship. They always say it for harassment, inciting violence or something, no matter how hard they have to stretch the truth to call it that.

    They also deleted Ice Age Farmer's server.

      Pretty much following in reddit's foodsteps, sadly.

      Living under a rock does have downsides, it seems.

      My teamspeak servers were fully encrypted end-to-end for the past 12 years.

      Also, Edward Snowden said, "When something is free, YOU are the product." That's what this means. Should have been obvious from the get-go, truly.

      They banned me a couple years ago for reasons I don't know.

      Discord is compromised, switch to a free & open source alternative like Matrix.

      [–]SoCo 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

      So is it just pushing this warning, or are they banning/shutting down the server? The former almost seems reasonable.

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

      Unfortunately, they do mass-bans out of nowhere. Us based members have to hide.

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

      They must have hit a nerve.

      Discord was bought out a year or two ago by some [probably jew] organisation and immediately started hammering right wing groups out. This has been known for some time. 100% worthless at this point in time.

      Before founding Discord, Jason (((Citron))) had founded an older platform called OpenFeint, which was sued into oblivion over selling its users' personal information. Discord is notorious for handing over right-wing chat logs to antifa journos at Unicorn Riot, ProPublica and Media Matters.
