Kind of agree... using the travesty that is the contraction "tho" deserves a punishment, but perhaps a permaban is too harsh.

It's not that insane. This is the same libertarian argument against state-enforced police.

I say Blue Lives Matter but also would like to see the state monopoly on violence grumble away.

Witness the abandonment of Saidit's principles by its own co-founder in the comments of this /s/whatever StoneToss comic post. by Lithargoel in KotakuInAction

Worrisome, if true.

But I'm not exactly seeing anything too incriminating here yet.

I think it's safe to say, everybody best to be on the lookout -- as you mentioned, recent events at Le Reddit increase the need for a new, freer platform.

Good for Shutterstock. I'm not using their services but fuck if employees are dictating how they run a company.

Saidit is pretty young. But it has potential to grow. Perhaps the KIA community should organize a bit to proactively secure some fandoms. by tabletobGamingFan in KotakuInAction

Yes!

We must secure the existence of our fandoms and the future of our hobbies.

In essence all/most of the subs that don't aim (or have to aim) to a meaningful discussions and conversations. Adhering to the POD rule becomes useless.

My favorite, r/4chan has its own subculture with freely thrown slurs and wishes of KYS (most of which are creatively reworded for lulz) all around the house. It's part of the culture. You may say, "good riddance". To which I say again, solely my own personal problem about Saidit.

Yeah, no I agree. When it comes to values this site doesn't have the worst ones in place.

But perhaps this all lays a groundwork for that (inevitable?) time when admins turn left there's a perfectly fine reason to go all in.

And some of the "funny subs" of reddit are not very possible under the values of Saidit, but that's solely my own problem.

Perhaps there's nothing to worry. Just that there's this kind of a "global" agreement (along with the wording) about what subs should contain doesn't sit with me that well.

I have to say that after some thinking and a night's sleep I don't think Saidit will be a very excellent platform for free discussions. (Might work very well for civilisity-controlled discussions akin to T_D or KiA2 but not for general free speech/sillyness.)

Unlike Aaron's original vision of Reddit, where subs were independent in a "federalized" way, here everything is more managed top-down, with the PoD forced on each sub with admins forcing sub mods to comply.[1]

The real alternative will be close to Aaron Schwartz' vision. Subs are independent, the central admins have limited power over the subs and their mods. The subs don't have to share much more than a common user login and the domain name under which they are hosted.

But technically speaking if a discussion already started at the very bottom then it would be within the rules to continue on that bottom level because the rules only forbid going down on the POD

Saidit circumvents this nasty dilemma by apparently banning all porn altogether.

Feels weird to be able to post in a "kia" sub without the number two in it.
