I, for one, can't wait for this revolution you speak of. It's bad.. very bad. And there is still only very few people who can even see it. It has to start somewhere.. like forced awareness in majorly developed countries (mainly the usa). Awareness leads to action.

I am using "revolution" here in the sense of "the next iteration in our cultural evolution as a civilization"

Very interesting comment, I think you are dead-on about quite a few things.

Not sure who wrote this stuff. But there are two important things to think about on this long post:

1.) The word revolution. What does it mean? To revolve, to return? People have their own ideas. Just think about it though.

2.) Beliefs and Opinions. With the fake news and censorship, it has become tremendously difficult for people to formulate their own beliefs and opinions to match the social reality we are in. Most have fallen to swallowing propaganda, while others are clinging to their set beliefs passed onto them via generational sects. Few will be able to engineer their beliefs and ideas to the accuracy required by crushing lies and straining the truth out of it all.

So basically, we are seeing the need to revolve back on our beliefs and opinions to fit reality; without breaking it or us. But due to the obstacles present, some conflict will probably take place and therefore an internet distribution protocol would not be the instantaneous golden pill due to misinfo, disinfo and plain old prejudice. Not to mention a physical conflict may disrupt telecommunications infrastructure in the future.

So really the revolution of ideas and opinion starts with you. On an individual level. Now what do you have left to learn and do?

This is how I think a real revolution has to happen to actually work. It's not a revolution of guns and wars, but rather a more fundamental revolution of opinions and ideas.

Actually, he and the others I knew of, all had/have savant qualities. In Steven's case, he was a talented graphic/animated artist; with lots of work, and money.

He still has those traits minus the money, but it's skewed into his religious doctrine; like the flat earth with a 'green glass ceiling', and the mark of 'his order' to go along with it, or 'Missterrybabylonestar'. All of these, are imho very good artistic renderings.

What I really cannot believe about him, is he does have a scary little following. Last I heard, for money, he was having them give him blowjobs on pornhub; not really sure about this, but read it.

I guess from there, the only other thing I know of him, is that Trinity over at GLP has at one point received I believe court protection orders against the guy, lol.

No worries, the saviors will probably show up here at some point, muhahahahahaha....

I don't think delusional is necessarily born from the internet. This guy just looks psychotic, like he took too much acid one day and never quite came back. Yea, he reminds me of people who went places or got involved with things that just weren't suited for them and made them pop. Wow, believes he's Jesus, has control of government agencies, and is going to kill anyone he sees as a threat; who could ask more from a savior? lol

I mean that's fair, and I appreciate it. But 90% of the guy's posts were literally "Let's kill niggers with shotguns" and stuff like that, verbatim. It's the bottom of the pyramid of debate, so it's against site rules. And he was posting only that type of content, as fast as he could. And creating 20 accounts to do so, in an obviously serial manner. So it was a pretty clear situation from my standpoint that he wasn't here to merely contribute his viewpoint to the website.

I appreciate your story though, thank you for sharing. It's good to hear other perspectives about this stuff, because it's often not black-and-white, like you pointed out. But thankfully in this case it was.

I actually owned part of a forum for a while; it was a break away like saidit is. There were similar 'we must act' arguments on numerous topics.

One such topic of 'we must act', was for those who inevitably had some sort of psychological break, and then found themselves to be 'god incarnate'. Somehow, we had a few of those breaks on our forum before it closed; one of which was Steven Joseph Christopher.

I don't really have a point, other than I comprehend what you're talking about, and feel the need to do so, as I'm not playing 'devil's advocate'. What I am noting, is living long enough to see what wasn't accepted, and what was joked on; is now often times protected, and those that can be traced back to disliking it vocally, are now having to often times, if lucky 'apologize', for that 'transgression' decades past.

EDIT TO ADD: part of my point, as the longer this site is around, you'll see the participants pushing for the narratives they want addressed, and often times, others shunned. But, I agree that spam is spam, and you as the site owner must figure out what to moderate, and what not to.

While you know better than I do on your own site, I was merely pointing out, that protection for the 'sub genre' mentioned is growing; it's a fact. Censoring soon, could play out like white folk now being called out for wearing blackface at Halloween in the 1980's; actions now, are held accountable later by society.

As long as there's no violation of the law, why censor? I note, I believe Jordan Peterson, or one of those folks is working on a platform, that they at least say, will offer free speech, short of a court ordering the removal of said content.

I mean, 30 years ago, this 'topic' could've been on drag queens, and the dangers poised there, yet today, we've got drag queen reading hour in libraries across America.

Things are quickly changing.

Yeah we do have a way. We ended up banning about a dozen accounts from this guy, I haven't checked but I'm fairly certain he was upvoting himself. But if it became a deeper problem, that would be a great thing to check next.

One of the keys to the strategy they used successfully to destroy voat was to scare off new users. Whenever there was a major subreddit banning on reddit, a bunch of fake racist/pedo/nazi whatever accounts that had barely posted for months fired up and went into overdrive. My suggestion, unpleasant as it may be, is to moderate the front page to some degree, and try and cultivate a TRUSTED base of mods for major communities to do the garbage work to stop the trolls in them. In my opinion, trying to cultivate a culture and a sufficiently large userbase that their shit is kept off the frontpage would, if nothing else, give a good idea of how large an org they have, if they scale up their efforts with the site's userbase.

On that last point, last I checked, one of the only voat communities that didn't get destroyed by the racist and pedo trolls was FatPeopleHate. They managed to keep the trolld mostly out despite whatever else was going on by having relatively heavy censorship of things unrelated to hating fat people, and a policy that required moderator appeals to be accompanied by a timestamped picture to prove that they weren't fat. I'm no fan of FPH, or of censorship, but it's interesting to see that strange policy seemed to keep the trolls out, almost inadvertantly.

That's true. Voat usually just disables new user account creation when they're under attack, which isn't a terrible idea.

It would be nice if user report flags placed extra limitations (less posts per hour allowed) on brand-new users.

If it becomes a problem, you can also put the new users (or suspect users) in a shadow-mode. They won't see the difference.

And after someone trusted has checked their behaviour, you can activate them.

If necessary, you can even add a few variations. I think that you want to spot the good/trusted users, and flag users that behave like bots, click_farm, hacked_account or troll.

It's all been removed.

We were being attacked like this last night, someone using a vpn and making a ton of names and posting the worst garbage.

I dealt with it for about 30 mins then went to bed because it seemed like it was over, but I guess he started up a few hours ago again. Anyway, I just removed it all and banned those users again. We will probably have to start doing IP bans, but the user is rotating their IP address constantly, so we may end up having to ban a lot of VPN ip addresses because of this one person.

Just have some patience. I'm not omniscient. The stuff gets dealt with, but I cannot deal with everything negative the instant it is posted. It's just not possible.

I agree that decentralization & federation are the future. Relying on any centralized service is bound to fail at some point in the future.

Heck, reddit started out as a free speech platform and look what it's become today. I also posted on early Voat, which started out great but devolved in a different way (which may have been a planned and organized attack).

As for federated services, have you looked into prismo and lemmy? I'm thinking of starting a lemmy instance once it leaves beta.

But that's the catch- some of the posts didn't advocate anything. Just saying a kid is hot is gross. That's why people do it- it's right on the line, and forces the community to react strongly.

I agree that the response must be well thought out and carefully designed so as to not slide down the slippery slope of censorship. Today's posts directly advocated for slavery and pedophilia. These both violate the human rights of the victim. That violation is uncivil even when the victim is hypothetical in nature. A good solution would be to have a rule that such advocacy is inherently uncivil and is therefore forbidden.

Looks like invaders are working to bring down the forum (2020 related?).

Soon we will have a report in the American media requiring the banning of Saidit.

Similar happened on voat, but they did not care about the racist part. So now they have many racist stuff. (Note: criticizing Israel or Saudi Arabia is not racist).

Magnora should appoint some trusted moderators to stop invasions like this.

I've warned about the blatantly obvious ways to ruin the saidit for over a year and the reply from mangnora has always been that we should trust our fellow users.

Today we have racist and pedo content for miles.

As much as I want to believe in saidit, and personally like what the admins are trying to achieve, I don't have faith in the way they're going about it.

I've set up my own federation based social network where I'm free to toss out whoever is trying to ruin the experience.

Everybody should check out Softaculous and HubZilla. We're in the age of "7-clicks-on-a-web-page" to install your own social network that can connect with the millions of users on The Federation.

The future is simply making your own stuff, not following stupid decisions because its too hard to create an alternative.

/s/home is /s/all without /s/ads

You're looking for /s/subscribed (which you can set as default view in your user preferences)

But if you really want to get on my good side, regularly post intelligent and thoughtful stuff to saidit, or write some code to improve the site. I really like people who do that stuff

I have another theory to explain the decline of almost everything in the human recently: Cause by the antibiotics and electric power.

In the era without antibiotics and electric power, parents have to use far much time than nowadays to take care of children, if the child has a little bit of health problem, temperature, bacteria, and viruses would kill the child, is the temperature, bacteria, and viruses remove the "individuals with little problems " from the human gene pool. They polish the human gene pool by killing ~50% of children in the era without antibiotics.

After human removed these factors, the quality of life and health in the human will be...

It's BS if the reason is genetic, how could the numbers of Autism children skyrocketing in recent years?

Could be epigenetic, theoretically. But who knows. "autism" is so broad it's probably 20 different things caused by 20 different factors

I spied the community of Autism parents many years ago, it very horrible inside, they discussed "how to abuse your child" there.

And groups of Autism parents funded research of Autism genes. It's BS if the reason is genetic, how could the numbers of Autism children skyrocketing in recent years? But abuse is not the only factor since I saw someone abused by their parents didn't get autism, but depression, genes should be a part of it. The most comment statement of them is "We found proof that Autism is nothing to do with parenting", it's a very common LIE, there's NO research proofed Autism is NOT related with the parenting.

And the guy who invented the term "Autism" believed autism is cause by "lack of caring mothers".

Yeah. I know what are you saying, the decline of language. English is not of my first language, I never watched "King of the Hill", and I know the same thing happening in every kind of language I know.

The reason for the decline of language is the decline of the first caregiver. (With less of political correctness: the decline of motherhood)Because the number of words we can use depends on the first caregiver used how much time to the baby, so you can find out that children from low SES status parents can talk fewer words. (you can google the research of it)And the government and society used a lot of ways to replace the traditional motherhood.

Since the lower and lower total vocabulary numbers they can talk, they have to use more double entendres to replace the words they can talk. And it's not a secret that when animals and plants stressed, they don't care about the quality of offspring but mating/looking mating for immediately. That's the over sexualize shit.

By the way, I hope no feminist in here read this. And this site called "SAIDIT", right?

Thanks. I should have looked that up. I wouldn't know a JIDF or Mossad if I bumped into one. The nightmare just got worse.

Honestly I think Truthers should form a tax-free religion based on skepticism with a political party, lobbyists, media empire, and a Truther Online Tolerance Society = TOTS. It all starts here on SaidIt.

FYI, after listening to that THC podcast and hearing about Bourdain's hemlock comment, I thought I'd also mention that Socrates was sentenced to drink hemlock, and that there's a big Hemlock Society that advocates for ethical humane suicide. I don't know if eugenicists have their claws in it, but I do know that many people suffer the tortures of the damned do indeed need compassionate relief and/or a way out, so I totally support the idea of informed voluntary suicide, but I don't know any practices or policies of the Hemlock Society, good or bad.

First posting on SaidIt !

I just watched this episode. I made some YouTube comments about that show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KhrG2N2h1zs&lc=UgxPKqSsixGcJRPgYf94AaABAg

I signed up to SaidIt immediately.

I've been considering (half assed looking) for a community, especially one with trutherism and voting/forum functionality. I signed up with Reddit and Voat when they first came out but never used them. Forgive me if I don't understand the culture yet. I try to contribute and/or fight the censorship on Wikipedia. They've got me pinned in there with their rigged rules. I was even banned for one year for being "another polite truther". That's when I was introduced to the mostly alt-right InfoGalactic encyclopedia, where truthers and even lefties can be free. I'm a progressive Green Party/Pirate Party/Internet Party supporter, atheist, voluntaryist, truther, historical revisionist, and conspirophile.

Me: https://infogalactic.com/info/User:JasonCarswell (There's a lot to explore there in the collapsed sections, though much of it is out of date, unfinished, and needs improvement. Also, if there's a good truther wiki out there, I'd move there in a heartbeat.)

There's no community to speak of on IG, not even alt-right.

Also, I'm a professional animator. I'm working on a couple projects that could benefit from a strong community with voting. There are extreme pros and cons to sketchy Steemit and I have several concerns about it. Of many things on the cons side, it's not remotely as open as it could be or as most people think.

Before I fully commit to SaidIt I'd like to know about: a) the future of SaidIt (ie roadmap, alt tech, plans, fall backs, backups, etc) b) if SaidIt will consider embracing IPFS/Filecoin with ZeroNet and/or other decentralized web alternatives and legit cryptos. c) is this where the Tin Foil Hat research group hangs out? I'm not sure I have time to commit, but maybe, if it looks good.

Please please please let me know, and/or point me to where I can seek more info.

I know this probably isn't the best way to introduce myself, pitch these queries, or format my contribution. This is my first post. Please educate me kindly. I'll catch on and I'll definitely stay if I'm attracted to it.

Thanks for being here. ~ Jason

Media has always been culture.

I agree, but it used to be a part of culture, made through/by culture and not dictating it.

That's why we need to make our own culture. That's why I do podcasts, write articles, and why I built saidit

I see what you mean and really do appreciate it all. I only think that culture is something much more local, but these things (and internet 'culture') are a good replacement of mainstream media and dull entertainment.

I generally agree.

They are also making us normalized towards many kinds of violence too.

I went to Germany and went on this castle tour, the guide was talking about how Germany was such a militaristic culture in the late 1890s that the Christmas trees even had tiny silver cannons as ornaments. It's a small detail, but thousands of cultural details like that add up and normalize things like war in the minds of the people living that culture.

It's really fascinating and subtle.

Yes, the people in the elites are seeking to use hypersensitization to force people into using the language that they want people to use. They are also making us normalized towards many kinds of violence too. Basically political correctness is in a way cultural genocide.

Certain terms that are very useful get "overwritten" by other terms that are homonyms, but are more emotionally salient.

It think it's more a case of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1UnIDL-eHOs . It's the language evolving through culture.

  • The shades of grey/double entendre (or as I like to call it: The Freudian Cigar) it's a case of ignoring the giggles or the urge to say 'No it's not ...' or 'I mean the ... meaning not the ... ' because usually it's pretty clear you don't. Like the episode comically put out: Everything can be related to sex if you just think long and hard about it.

  • The trump thing is probably the reason the Drumph (was it?) family changed their name to Trump.

People are afraid to say the thing that comes to mind, lest it be misconstrued as something else because of all the overlaid double-meanings that so many words have come to have because of things being popularized in the media.

That would be people who are afraid to say homo, because apparently they can only see heaps of dicks and man-sex when using it while it's a commonly used Latin word meaning equal.

But on a more serious note, this overwriting of language because of media memes out of fear for social standing is a symptom of a broken society that watches too much crap rather than it being the cause or some sort of media masterplan. People who work 9-5 (or longer) and spend their free time passively watching 'crap' while their brains think they are somehow socially interacting with these voices/images on the screen. Apart from that dystopian imagery, it's (like in you OK video) a natural think for language to change according to culture changes, too bad media has become culture.
