I say it's not to be taken seriously. Here's the problem:

Wokes: "Its very important for people to be able to view history through the lens of race, we need to create a Black History Month"

Whites: "Oh cool, can we have one too?"

Wokes: "Race is a social construct you filthy white supremacists!"

They like to claim race as an all important category of identity as long as you aren't white, and then an artificial social construct to be disavowed if you are. You can't actually have it both ways

What Happened To Jon Stewart? (17:08) ~ The Jimmy Dore Show by JasonCarswell in propaganda

[–]HongKongPhooey 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Nothing happened to Jon Stewart. He is terrific at exposing the corruption and hypocrisy of people he has ideological disagreements with (the right). Now that his ideological neighbors are doing the corruption and hypocrisy, he has nothing to say about it.

Same old J-Stew, his schtick just isn't relevant anymore when it isnt Bush, Cheney and a bunch of republicans destroying the country

We have seen this with many on the left, Michael Moore also comes to mind. Great with the 9/11 stuff during the Bush Era, but not so much on anything that was liberals fault that came afterwards

Almost NOBODY in the media believes in the principles they claim to be supporting, they believe in the politics of power played as a team sport. Our team good, other team evil and destroying the country. This just happened to coincide with the truth for a brief time the during Bush years, which made it appear Stewart was an upstanding teller of truths rather than a partisan shill practicing ideological warfare

EA will add binders, top surgery scars, and more in The Sims 4. How about actually adding what people keep asking for, instead of pandering...? by DickFreeBacon in TumblrInAction

Pander: to provide gratification for others' desires.

This sounds an awful lot like 'adding what people keep asking for', which I suspect the trannies have done often and repeatedly in reference to them wanting options to express their tranniness in games.

I'm not against preventing minors from doing this, but 26? This isn't consistent with any of our other legal standards of adulthood. If youre old enough to get drafted and join the military, or get tried as an adult in a court of law, you are clearly responsible for yourself by society's standards, and ought be old enough to do all the other adult stuff.

Can we please have a consistent standard of what the fuck an adult is?

What does saidit think of this covid vaccine study? If this is true it's good news, but I'm not sure how to evaluate it myself. Appreciate any comments, context, etc. by panel30 in AskSaidIt

[–]HongKongPhooey 5 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 0 fun6 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Well its a pre-print, so it hasn't been peer reviewed yet, but there is some trouble with their logic and premise of the study.

They are framing this as 'vaccination' vs 'infection', when this is a false paradigm - People who have been vaccinated still get Covid, so you have to ADD vaccine risk + covid risk to the vaccinated patients. This is not actually an either/or scenario, since this vaccine is NOT sterilizing and does NOT prevent the infection. The vaccinated have two sources of myocarditis risk, the unvaccinated have one.

This study does not appear to be controlling for cases of infection AND vaccination, so at a glance I'd say it has very little value, and their conclusions are misleading

E-cigarettes cause MORE lung inflammation than normal cigarettes, study finds — as experts warn vaping is causing 'unique' damage to users by HongKongPhooey in whatever

Contents of e-cig "smoke":

nicotine water vapour maybe some flavouring.

You seem to have some misconceptions about the contents of ecig vapor. You are primarily vaping propylene glycol, sometimes mixed with vegetable glycerine, not water, in quantities that absolutely dwarf anything that has been tested, and when heated it forms methylglyoxal, which is very concerning. In addition, you have atomizers that perform the vaporization and are known to impart heavy metals into the vapor. There is also strong evidence that ecig vapor significantly reduces testosterone while cigarette smoke does not.

Masterpiece Cakeshop Loses Appeal Over Gender Transition Cake by Drewski in news

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

I wonder if they would change their minds if the situation were reversed.

Imagine a christian goes into a trans-owned cake-shop and demands they make them a cake that says 'God hates tranny faggots". I bet they would see this as unreasonable, even though its the literal same situation, and say the trans person should not have to create a god hates trans cake.

What the law should be hear seem pretty obvious. It is discrimination to refuse to sell them any cake at all, such as a pre-made cake already in the fridge just because they are gay or trans (we established this definition during the end of segregation), but when you are demanding someone use their artistry to make you a custom cake, they should clearly be allowed to refuse to do so, as you are asking them to do something against their values, rather than just serve someone with different values

What you are referring to is an interesting phenomenon.

Traditionally, freedom of speech has been a liberal value. Leftist orgs like the ACLU even fought for the rights of the KKK to march at one point, because this principle was more important than which side was doing the speech. Right leaning Christian groups were the main drivers of censorship for most of American history

Now the ACLU only promotes the DNC agenda, and the liberal politicians have done a 180 on speech, no longer supporting this principle. In fact the people we now see the most supporting free speech are conservative Republicans and Christians who have been censored by the liberals.

This isn't the first time in U.S. history that the parties have swapped some or all of their platforms. During the civil war, the southern democrats were the conservative party, and the northern republicans like Lincoln were actually the liberals.

You can't trust a political party, and should stick to your principles rather than engaging in party groupthink is the lesson I personally take from this, as parties are inclined to change their principles whenever it suits their interests of power.

Perhaps you are right, though I still have some questions about this. Your linked text gives me the impression that these cases involved people that were intentionally huffing it, which you would think would involve much higher concentrations than spraying it around a room that you are in. Maybe it happens and its more dangerous than I realize, but I've never heard of an accidental case like this from non-concentrated exposure, people spray lysol aerosols all over the place all the time. Everyone I knew as a teen used to use it to cover the smell of weed, nobody ever died, and we used a lot in small rooms. Or maybe they are full of shit and the girl was straight huffing it. I don't know, its hard for me to draw a definitive conclusion one way or another about this, its a very unusual set of circumstances, but I'd need more convincing that some secondhand exposure like spraying it in a bathroom can kill you

Very interesting study.

L-dopa is present in fairly large quantities in mucuna pruriens seeds and extracts, these are legal herbal supplements that do not need a prescription

Maybe that's part of why this topic interests me right now in a more broad sense than literal paid shills. I guess maybe I hope I can recognize that something is important or true without making it like that.

I agree with you here. I came to the same conclusion for maybe different reasons. For me it was I used to consider to myself a 'liberal' until all this vaccine and censorship stuff. I realized that individual issues were what was important to me rather than being on the 'right' or 'left' side, as the left abandoned these values, and some on the 'right' started promoting these values.

I agree panel, the hostility is frustrating and makes saidit less enjoyable. Personally I am not really interested in arguing about ideologies and identity groups, as it usually ends in fighting and not being constructive. I really did not mean to trigger a degeneration of the conversation, I was actually trying to avoid it by leaving my own views out of it and talking about why anyone with any ideology might promote their views forcefully, and be called a 'shill'.

Personally, I'm not sure why there would be any real paid shills on Saidit, this site maybe has 100 regular users total, and most of them don't change their minds easily, which is why 90% of this site is here, because reddit banned them for views plenty of people tried to talk them out of. Reddit, Twitter and the like are better places for shills to be effective and reach a large audience of easily swayed people. If someone is getting paid to post shit here, they are really wasting their money.

Personally, I think most people here, me included, strongly believe a lot of things (I wont use that one term again, lol, unintended interpretation), thats what got many of us removed from reddit.

"True believer" in this context I guess did sound a little negative, "one who's finally seen the light" or "enlightened" or "savvy enough to not have gotten vaxxed" would eg sound a bit more positive.

My honest intent was for it to be purely neutral and mean literally 'someone who truly believes'. I didn't use those other words because I didn't want to be seen as taking a side or stance on anyones particular system of beliefs because it didn't seem relevant to the discussion and I wanted to avoid sidetracking it with ideological debate.

I apologize for getting a little upset but its kind of irritating to post comments and read weird accusations about being a Jew

So when he shills against christianity in this case, he frames it as if christians are 'shills'.

Bro, your reading comprehension is really lacking. I said:

They aren't really 'shills' because they truly believe what they say, and aren't in it for financial gain

In reference to the true believers who I used christians as an example of. Someone who promotes their cause because they believe in it, not because they are being paid. While also saying some people truly believe in other secular ideologies, like liberalism, or conservatism, and promote it not because they are 'shills' but because they believe in it. They also want to 'convert' people to their system of morality. Its called an analogy. Interesting that you would interpret 'true believer' as a negative thing, I thought that was specifically what made one a good christian.

My entire point was merely that 'shills' are usually not shills at all, just people who truly believe in an ideology, but clearly you are either insane or not terribly bright

I don't like the casual undermining of Christianity that I've seen in general in some places

What about 'true believer' do you interpret as being negative? Do christians not truly believe? Do christians not want to convert people to their religion? I am simply talking about facts. I though christians thought these were positive things

Also, neither of you is reading very carefully. I specifically wrote

They aren't really 'shills' because they truly believe what they say, and aren't in it for financial gain.

I was saying that not everyone who appears to be a shill is a shill at all, that some of them really believe what appears to be shilling for a cause. I'm not sure what you interpret as being negative about christianity here. I am simply stating that like religion, people can strongly believe in other things, and promote an agenda not because they are being paid, but because they 'truly believe' in their cause, with christians being an example of a true believer who arent promoting their views for personal gain

Eating food so spicy it can make one poop lava. Curries eat food with their hands like uncivilised chimps.

Then eat shredded wheat with a spork if thats what turns you on, your genes arent stopping you.

Bizarre customs like worshipping snakes, literal penises and vaginas, cows and whatnot.

Then don't worship them

I TOLD MY MOM THAT IN 2021 I WILL NO LONGER PARTICIPATE IN CURRY ACTIVITIES, AND WILL BEGIN THE PROCESS OF DE-CURRIFICATION by sneako in RealIncels

Yeah, like you say I think there are some subtle differences here. All of us come to Saidit to say our piece, think we are right, and try to get others to see our reasoning. It does feel good when you change someones mind through discussion and reason, and conversely to gain insights from others. I think there is a difference between having a rational debate and trying to convince someone of a thing, and demanding that you are right and everyone submit to your rightness, I try to to aim for the former, though none of us are perfect, and I'm sure you could find instances of me being dogmatic to some extent if you were to review all my posts

I think StillLessons is largely correct. There are two types of people here. One is the type that is doing this for financial gain, but this type is rarer than the other type, and wants to create this second type for their own personal gain.

StillLessons called the second type 'activists', but I would use the term 'true believers', as it isn't necessarily political. Christians are a type of true believer - they want to save you from your wrong views and convert you to their correct ones. I'd also say that secular ideologies work much the same way, at least in social dynamics, you can have a true believer in liberalism, conservatism, gender ideology, capitalism, or pretty much any idea or group of ideas. They aren't really 'shills' because they truly believe what they say, and aren't in it for financial gain, but their words might be hard to distinguish from the first group

AutoModerator can already send notifications. If you're not getting them it means the sub's mods chose not to use them.

Ahh interesting, didn't realize that, never actually gotten a notification on my alt accounts. It still seems like a strange thing to allow a sub on s/all to pull peoples posts without telling them its being pulled and why

Usually a repository is archived when the owner no longer plans to maintain the code, I doubt it was for inactivity as there is some activity right before it was archived just a couple months ago

I see the last merge/pull request appears to be from a handle I recognize as belonging to admin Vulptex, so he's your best bet if you want more info

The Atlantic Comments on Died Suddenly. Surprise, Surprise: They Want It Censored. Liars Don't Like When People Confront Their Lies. by StillLessons in censorship

Well, I'm not for censorship, but that video contains some rather egregious 'mistakes'. He used footage from 2019 and tried to pass it off as vaccine related, and grossly misinterprets study data, such as his claim that 83% of vaccinated pregnant women miscarried, which not only is false, but distracts from the fact the real number of 10% according to the actual study data he refers to is pretty alarming. This is the same guy (stu peters) who made a 2021 video saying covid was caused by cobra venom that satan worshippers put in the water supply, he is not lending credibility to the cause. This guy is either a grifter or a QAnon style psy-op meant to discredit 'conspiracy theorists' by making them look stupid

Yes, this should really be improved. People don't realize their posts are being pulled, and it really should notify you. Iirc s/news and s/politics are karma gated at 100, but most of them arent

Unfortunately I don't think this is likely to happen. The source code is archived, site owner Magnora7 seems uninterested in investing any more time in Saidit, and he has alienated the users who were able and inclined to help

Why are Americans so hyperfixated on squeezing the labor out of every single person whether it would be productive or not? by sneako in whatever

You aren't the first person to ask this question by any means. I recommend David Graeber's book 'Bullshit Jobs' that deals with this phenomenon
