The far left is the most hateful and intolerant mainstream organization I've ever encountered.

Oh they love it, free speech has become a bad word, something allegedly only the far right wants. They see censorship, name calling, and deplatforming anyone who disagrees as a good thing.

It's scary, I've never seen such a fiercely regressive and hateful mainstream movement. Personally I'm getting sick of the "transphobic" slur being casually lobbed around.

Editorial moderation. It's a common trap to fall into. Done it myself, sometimes you forget your role is not to shape the narrative.

Although my post concats were much maligned at the time, I merged all complaining into a single thread. It's currently still going in its third iteration.

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.

All this anti-vax stuff is making me feel squishy. I have been having nose bleeds that are hard to stop, and now two blisters.

Although on the other hand, it's been hot so lots of dry AC air, I probably stepped on something barefoot, and my heart meds thin my blood.

Still, squishy.

Blocking doesn't work for those of us who want to read all of the posts, even from people we disagree with, and especially if from peopel we disagree with. For me, that's the reason to visit Saidit, so read alternative points of view.

I know this was pointed out previously but doesn't that idea run counter to banning people?

Name-calling by Jason

I know. I don't like it. I don't think he can help it, you also don't have to participate. You guys are like siblings who don't get along. I don't want to see people permabanned over it for the same reason you don't want to block people.

I think Saidit will develop, as it has done, when the posts and discussions are more interesting. Some of the users here have short memories, and may think that Amelia's work is somehow different from M7's.

M7 banned a lot of people too (cough, cough, cough, cough). That's why people are complaining they're like Reddit mods. People came here to get away from that.

You're new here but this is a small site, a lot of us do know each other more than you would at a larger place. I'm chatting with Jason and another guy on here, LarrySwinger2 rn. Last time Jason was banned he did respect it. I'm the one who didn't, everyone kinda knows who I am except maybe the admins lol. Not sure it matters now, I think we've come to a critical place.

The owner of the site has been missing for over a month, we're not sure the lights are going to be on much longer. autopay apparently is going

this website is simply an old and outdated version of reddit

We're not here for the UI, although we have inline links, which is awesome. Clicking on the "jpg" button lets you see the image inside the message. And the irc chat is nice if anyone ever used it.

He's been a dick to me. He sometimes lashes out when he disagrees in a way that's not an appropriately measured response. That's just Jason though, he can't help it. He's written about why he's like that.

A ban though, for one of the top site contributors over a fight... I agree that's a huge mistake.

The iron left, annoying assholes they were, were surprisingly good for numbers, even their vote manipulation benefitted the site, making it appear more populated. Lots of user engagement. I'm not a wrestling fan but I believe that's known as a "heel."

I'd agree spam is a problem. I think that's related to all the empty subs, nobody is there to moderate most of them so admins are the only ones who can remove spam.

I hadn't been on in a couple weeks, stuff came up. Looks like I picked a good day though, this is kinda interesting.

I didn't catch the fight but I don't know why you and Jason don't just block each other. There's no reason to lose more people even as the site's future is questionable. Nobody has still heard from M7, next server bill is probably coming up soon. Not sure the lights are going to be on.

I think we should all be focused on a contingency at this point. You edited it but you said Saidit isn't the only option. Or maybe I misread. The alternatives aren't great, alt right sites basically. A number of Saiditors are centrists, we don't really fit in there.

The writing has been on the wall for a while, sites been bleeding users.

Looks like there's about 30 people left. You sure that has nothing to do with bans, because -- wild idea -- large sites with millions of members can absorb quite a few bans but we were rocking maybe a hundro contributing users a month ago.

Everyone was already browsing by s/all because we have more subs than users, but then some subs weren't allowed on all so basically nobody sees those.

Then it got to a point, speaking from personal experience, I can catch up logging in every few days. Then sometimes there wasn't anything in those periods. Less to read, less to write, even less to read, even less to write.

It wasn't shills, it wasn't the iron left, Saidit was moderated to death. Unintentionally of course.

We both want new bodies. You want one without a dick (women don't have it easy, not sure why), and I want one that doesn't hurt all the time.

The same tech would fix us both. Unfortunately it probably isn't going to exist in our lives. And for my own mental health I don't wanna pretend genders. What if someone pointed at a flock of ducks and said "No they aren't all ducks, 3 of them identify as dogs." Are ducks dogs? Obviously no.

The L and T aren't compatible, it is a troubled union anyways even if the left hadn't become so ironically intolerant of wrongthink. Although I don't know anything about the "drop the T" movement.

You know though, if you want to change hearts and minds, influence people, you're not going to do that from the outside of these organizations. On reddit I post on places like Tumblr sometimes. I might get 20 downvotes sometimes but it reaches people, it's worth it.

I could stay in the subs that love and agree with me (I mean, relatively more than tumblr) but I wouldn't be changing any opinions there.

I would never feed a cat a vegan diet, but cats do eat a fair amount of plants in commercial cat foods, and even a little bit in the wild. They can digest plants, it's just not as efficient.

So while it's a stupid thing to do, I don't if I would call it abuse. Vegan cat seems better than a homeless cat put down, doesn't it?

I tried positive reinforcement when I adopted my two previous cats but it did not work. They were problem animals, their owner had harassed them so much (not intentionally, but doing stupid shit) they decided to piss and shit over everything.

Breaking them of that habit was brutal. I don't mention it because people flip out. But it was either stop them from anger pooping or put them down.

But it worked, and they both lived long and happy lives as well trained cats.

My current cat I let get away with too much, but his major transressions, like the few times he thought swiping at my face or hissing at me was a good idea, just get him timeout in the cage. He's a needy fucker so he hates that, he likes to be able to get to me at all times.

Some people are compelled to do good (and bad) things without rewards

I disagree with that, I believe we only ever do anything because we expect some kind of reward, but that reward can be a feeling, like of a job well done, or of helping the needy, doing something good, it makes us feel good.

Because people who do things that do not reward themselves, such as compulsively banging their head against walls, have some sort of defective mental processes.

I don't know if I want that, the government would probably fuck it up trying to regulate it. I mean, can you imagine if the US passed laws they couldn't enforce on a global marketplace but prevented US citizens from legally participating in, like they did with online poker. That fucked me hard, kicking me out of crypto would fuck me even harder. And not in a good way.

The US spent $60 billion rebuilding Iraq after the 2003 war. There is virtually nothing to show for the money. Most of the money seems to have been stolen by US defense contractors. by HibikiBlack in conspiracy

Dick Cheney was the CEO of Halliburton. I guess everyone knows that, but there was a decent movie about his role in the wars, I think it was called Dick.

I generally don't watch the videos either. There's only so many hour long vids I can sit through, and that number is zero.

I use multiple, they're good for different things and coins. Regular Coinbase has really high fees, I wouldn't use that alone but in tandem with the pro app is my fav. I can't use Binance but that's the most recommended one on r/cryptocurrency

My only caveat is, who judges what is janitorial vs editorial? Why not try to offer folks (admittedly flawed) options rather than (worse) all or nothing?

By Janitorial I mean removing spam, putting things into their proper categories, things like that rather than trying to influence the direction conversations take.

I have a headache, I'll have to look this over later.

For a mascot, what do you think of Simple Jack from Tropic Thunder but make it a chick and call her Simple Cassy. And yes, we should have it printed on t shirts and hats to generate some cash flow. There are sites that do that for you, if you were to say draw a simple image of simple cassy, not sure how horrendous their cuts are tho.

Nobody said that was the final step, let's face it, this whole thing is not going to pop out of our asses like a beautiful golden egg, fully formed and valuable. We're going to have to divide and conquer, break it down into steps and stages.

Also decentralized can be achieved in other ways, like simply by letting users download the message base. That has a number of advantages to it too, like it's simple. Keep it Simple Stupid is a fantastic principle.

Has anyone noticed that certain high-profile users disappeared around the same time, right before the latest server shut-down? by Zapped in AskSaidIt

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

It's a snowball effect, some people got banned, m7 was paranoid long term users were part of the iron left, the same people drove users off, the 4 day outage lost some, and then there's so much less voices here, people like me don't have anything to respond to. So it gets very quiet.

I think we dipped below a critical threshold of users for a bit, but I see some new faces too so maybe it'll recover.

When will the US get it together and make all states the same?

No idea, the federal government would have to legalize. The failed war on drugs is worth big money though, there's a lot of vested interest and money in keeping it illegal.

The soonest would be 2024, if a candidate makes it an election issue, and the democrats may be desperate enough to do that to win.

I love silver, it's so pretty. I don't own much but it's done terrific.

I'm in Texas, weed isn't legal here. I wouldn't know where to get it at all if it weren't for local highschool kids. Have you heard about delta 8? I just got a vape of it. It's legal and very similar to delta 9 thc.

I'd do my best to hook ya up if you're in the area, but I don't have great connections. What the dealers do here is drive to Colorado and pick up from the dispensaries here and smuggle it back. I have a cross country trip planned, we were going to hit up a few legal states to get high in.

There's also the dark web but I don't know shit about that.

It was a holiday weekend, the weather is better - and/or SaidIt seems like it's dying. I wonder how much it was dying under the LXXX crap that artificially boosted the numbers and such. I wonder how much damage their drama did. I also wonder about my own role - and now without anything to show 2 months later, I also wonder about Larry. Perhaps he and M7 are just MIA moping around somewhere, or frolicking with young women in the sunshine - or maybe they're getting new orders from their CIA/Mossad bosses.

u/LarrySwinger2 is missing too? It's been almost a month since anyone saw m7, hope they're just busy with beaver.

We were hurting from the iron left, then the bans, then the outage, but this is a new level of quiet. I had one reply in 4 days. There's some new faces though too.

A couple decades ago for years I would camp this big weekend in Austin at Burning Flipside. I miss that stuff.

Our trip was miserable. I got really mad at the kids for how they were behaving. They were acting like little shits.
