You're literally destroying the "conspiracy" sub by putting everything in, including the kitchen sink. When someone want's to find actual "conspiracy" content they're going to find nothing but unrelated duplicates.

Shame.

Yes, Reddit has us beaten down so hard with ban happy mods that we don't classify correctly anymore. I'm in the middle of deconditioning myself too.

It takes effort to double post.

I've only posted a few comments on Reddit when SaidIt took me there. I had a weird bot react to me today.

Hhahaha exposing Bernie in the Bernie sub, love it. Alas there is a turtle meme preventing me from examining this turtle policy, I can't find it.

Also I second dude's criticism of Gabbard and I've heard some sketchy things about Stein although I still like her and voted for her, not that it matters much.

Did you search for "turtle"?

I said, quote:

He screwed you before. BERNIE SANDERS IS A COWARD WHEN IT COUNTS. Why would you think next time will be any different? He's a centrist limited hangout sheepdog.

How about a GabbardForPresident and SteinForPresident sub too? At least they haven't fucked us over yet and been a coward when he should have said something about it but sat by to let the CORPORATE Democratic party stomp on the will of the people and shit in the face of progressives.

If voting changed anything, they’d make it illegal.

End quote.

Harsh but true. They need to put their blind faith in someone else who might (doubtful) actually do something, anything, to help some folks, not counting the elites.

Yes. But where is this rule coming from? I guess the mods of WayOfTheBern set it up?

edit: holy shit they have a link to saidit in the sidebar, epic

I don't know. I spend as little time there as possible.

I didn't see the link.

Some folks were asking me if I was a troll who deletes his posts - because I have 2 years of inactivity.

I told them my story and how I don't care about Reddit things until I came here less than 2 months ago with a link to my profile and InfoGalactic.

I'd like to take all the credit for that link but I doubt they even read my crap.

To me this belongs here as well as worldpolitics, not to mention others. It's a piece of the puzzle.Why not share it?

[–]JasonCarswell 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (4 children)

The whole world is a puzzle. But for clarity you don't put the whole world in one category. This belongs in economics, or business, or authority, or centralization, or anywhere faaar before conspiracy. Is it really a conspiracy when it's obvious or out in the open?

The CIA conspires to fund half of the Hollywood movies. Does that mean every movie should go in conspiracy? Focus man.

Is it really a conspiracy when it's obvious or out in the open?

Of course... and the Fed is a pretty important place to focus. By the way, please feel free to take what I share and post it to other subs. I'm just a node passing on info, as is everyone else here.

I'm not debating the value of your articles. You post good stuff. But too often you don't think about the subs. If I wanted to find interesting stuff in "technology" and all I got were cat videos I'd be pretty pissed and not want to use SaidIt. The search is bad enough as it is, limited only to post titles and presently our only other option and reliance is on proper categorization into the subs - which unfortunately also are locked in and not modifiable.

From one angle I agree - everything is a conspiracy. But practically, if everything is conspiracy how can we effectively search for something like conspiracy trials if everything from chemtrails to Corbett to Columbus are also cluttering up conspiracy?

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

I feel you, and I agree to a certain degree, but I'm only surfing conspiracy and worldpolitics subs here (and elsewhere for the most part), so I limit my submissions to those subs as well.

Basically I've decided to spent the limited time I have focus on this type of news/info, and to do so on multiple platforms (i.e., decentralize the sources). It's the best I can do right now.

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

I'm not asking you to change your surfing habits. I'm asking you to consider the sub titles for your posts and improve their categorization. These scandalous "conspiracies" and "world news" on vanilla sites may be fine with those labels, but on SaidIt there are many many many flavours of corruption around the globe.

I'm not saying you're taking a crap in the middle of the bathroom floor and think that's close enough - because you bring in good articles and not crap. However, I am saying you you bring home the gourmet groceries and leave them on counter in their bags, and you're not putting them in the cupboards, fridge, and freezer. It's a slice of lazy when clearly you're not. Before long you'll know the subs off the back of your hand.

Here's a tip. When I've got a post ready to go with an empty sub, all of the subs are listed but not easy to read - so I search the page and type the first few letters of what I'm hoping for until I find one I like. Start specific, then gradually go broader, and if all else, WorldNews fits everything under the sun, though typically it should be for international affairs.

At least the subreddit isn't innactive though.

These also tend to be posted in parallel to /s/WorldPolitics too, though, so I'm not sure what to think.

"At least the subreddit isn't innactive though."

You mean the "conspiracy" sub?

This doesn't belong in "WorldPolitics" either. This belongs in economics, or business, or even DecentraleAllThings.

I think if everyone bothered to find the best sub for their post it would improve the quality of SaidIt.

Granted there are limits. I posted an excellent "home school" show in "DIY" because there wasn't an "education" sub yet. Ironically someone created it shortly after.
