Saying that the current dripclose isn't fast enough so people should focus on one of the guys who've held his mouth shut up until now seems fruitless.

That war (WW2) was fought, according to the allies, for 4 freedoms.

I've found out my retention is highest with quick repetitions, but thanks for the reading tip.

you think that the right to say what you want when you want regardess of which media, is not how things are today does not mean that is not how it is supposed to be

No, I think that it's not supposed to be the way you present it because its contrary to the generally accepted concept of ownership.

the reason it is not is because fascists who prefer authoritarian control and censorship have taken control of social media.

I'll agree that there's been a massive increase in editorial control on corporation-run and private sites, often as a result of a sellout by the original creators, either morally or monetary...

I don't think refusal to display certain content on a website is censorship unless it's a public service by the government.

I don't believe capitalistic greed is fascist, though it's easy to mistake the two since they share a lot of methods.

And I don't believe the ones making the decisions prefer authoritarian control, it's just a very noticable way to influence people - one of many ways that's employed in parallel.

Regarding your edit

Your posts have shown up on the default landing page on the mobile app a lot more than 3 times for me, I'm not stalking your posts - they're right in my face. And I'll agree, that's not the proper frontpage.

It's a shame really, because you posts are usually interesting and I'd be upvoting the content if there wasn't a constant mix in the presentation of content and comment... Thus boosting your posts towards the realq frontpage.

Did you ever stop to consider that perhaps as per your (original) advice, I tried to take more time adding more substance to my posts, rather than rely solely on the editorialized titling?

That's a central point in my argument against your statement that you only have time to comment in the post title. So yes.

Also, it's commendable that you choose to put several paragraphs of comment in the comment thread instead of the post title.

"hippocrate" (it's hypocrite)

Yes, thank you. Multilingual keyboards sometimes mess up and since I'm not even an ESL speaker and in large part self taught I often get it wrong.

You simply want to derail my threads and sling mud because you don't like my opinion and/or writing style.

No, I didn't like your title commenting (editorializing is changing the title itself, not appending an opinion I believe), I've never commented on your opinions or writing style in this context AFAIR. Me calling you out is because you've given me a reason for the way you do it and I didn't protest. But then you show that the previous reason was untrue. THEN I protest.

I also realized I don't need to rationalize my titles to you - nor do I need to have any kind of set-in-stone rules for how I do it.

That's true. The dangers of being free and doing what you want is that it might go against others interest. In this case, beyond my personal feels, is that I think it makes certain Saidit posts look infantile for new visitors.

Otherwise I'll have to request you stop this.

How about a deal, you stop doing what I don't like and I'll stop doing what you don't like?

If you can't handle that, I'll just block you. How's that?

That's what you've asked me to do with content I don't agree with, so it seems perfectly fair to me.

I can see why you'd need to put that cheesy "vigte: blablabla" in the post title to save time since you can't spend your precious time in the convent field as per your other reply to me.

In my book you're not only [edited for unfair characteristics], you're now also a hippocrate.

I'd wish you'd stop using your post titles as a platform to push your post comments to the front page.

Thats extremely discriminating against new subs and kills growth. That system HAS to go, particularly when you promote "you're subbed to everything."

You are literally subscribed to everything, removing a sub limits only that sub.
