Because they'll be deconstructed.

"One professor expressed concern that "right wing sites" could expose [my emphasis] what is being taught in college courses."

Initially known as "Anti-Extremes" using the "AntiExtremes.com" domain, SaidIt began as an open source fork on GitHub under Reddit-AE, since changed to SaidIt.[21]

The first SaidIt post, "These people with watermelons ar" was on Sunday, 2017-09-10 at 00:23:51 UTC[22], but it looks like a test post with randomly generated comment snippets that make no sense from a lot of users not seen before.

The first official SaidIt post, "Welcome to AntiExtremes.com" was on Wednesday 2017-10-11, at 09:43:20 UTC.[23] As the title indicates, "SaidIt.net" began under a different name, as "AntiExtremes.com", because...

  • I love the dark theme. Not enough folks include this.

  • I like the emoticon votes. Can you add more. The QxR torrenting group forum features several emoticons with more different values, though without the voting hierarchy. My experience with forums is very limited. I think it might be appropriate here to add a few other icons or searchable tags that might include "trivia" (for notable facts or knowls or info worth keeping that may not be "insights"), "NWO" (open geopolitics, ecconomics, war, police, full spectrum dominance, etc), "spycraft" (secrets, deepstate, covert ops, nefarious methods, etc), "MKUlture" (media analysis, propaganda, brainwashing, psy-ops, drugs, cultural engineering, context), "Alt-History" (truther perspectives, historical revisionism, alternative narratives, etc), "Alt-Solutions" (antiestablishment resistance, resources, solutions, media recommendations, etc.) or whatever. I like that there's no vote war. I think it might be good not to be negative and downvote, but I also think a skeptical emoji or something of a questioning nature should be expressible. Maybe put it to a vote.

  • "SaidIt is completely 100% open source." I love this. I recently overhauled Wikipedia's "open source (disambiguation)" page. For clarification, is it also Libre (FLOSS)? I think that's worth mentioning if it is. Supporting its distinction is very important. See also: Gnu.

  • I'd love to know if SaidIt is interested in decentralizing itself. Not only to distribute and ease band width (should that ever become a problem), but also to avoid hard and soft censorship, not to mention adding a layer of permanence should they ever try to shut down the site. For example, SaidIt could blockchain, bittorrent, and/or webtorrent it's content (text and maybe images) to share archives and/or hosting (without sharing administration controls). Further, SaidIt could be mirrored on ZeroNet or my favourite idea: IPFS. IPFS is being inter-developed with Filecoin, libp2p, IPLD, and Multiformats by Protocol Labs. Steemit has closed proprietary sketchy schemes. IPFS has Filecoin as a practical necessity for maintenance, gear, etc. as well as monetary incentive for content contributors and curators, as well as currency for other applications and markets. The currency incentive corrupts many folks motives (ie. they post crap hoping to earn or rig schemes) but without ads or selling info overhead must be maintained. I haven't heard of any flaws or red flags yet regarding the conceptual theory for IPFS but I'm certainly watching. I'm hoping IPFS or something like it will be the alternative solution we've all be hoping to embrace and evolve past limitations of the Internet.

  • I am not a coder, so the theoretical stuff above may not be as easy as it sounds, and may have flaws or cons I'm unaware of.

  • I have a many other topics I'm passionate about beyond Decentralized Web(s), like trutherism and filmmaking. Further, I hope to bring my 2 projects to SaidIt, if everything works out. I would also be co-developing them with other websites (ie. wiki, images, audio/video, funding/marketing, and publishing). I don't know if these type of crowd source projects would fly at Reddit because I never got into Reddit or Voat to try. It's only because of the Tin Foil Hat show that I know about you. I can only hope for success and do my best but whether my projects actually succeed as intended is beyond me, as are the pros and cons of attracting crowds. If anyone is interested I can briefly outline these semi-related truther projects and/or point you to where I'm currently partially developing them. I won't waste any more of your time unless you ask, so if you're intrigued, please ask me about them.

  • I also have my Wikipedia projects, even though Wikipedia sucks ass, it has a mass audience and great resources.

  • What I can't do on Wikipedia I do on InfoGalactic. For example, I wrote these articles: https://infogalactic.com/info/James_Corbett_(journalist) https://infogalactic.com/info/Tigole https://infogalactic.com/info/WebTorrent

  • These articles were/are severely censored on Wikipedia: https://infogalactic.com/info/InterPlanetary_File_System https://infogalactic.com/info/Lionel_(radio_personality)

  • I didn't know if I could believe the Pedogate stuff and wanted to find a list of elites and their deeds but found none anywhere online, so I started my own list which turned into this article and two lists: https://infogalactic.com/info/Pedophocracy https://infogalactic.com/info/List_of_acknowledged_pedophilia_elites https://infogalactic.com/info/List_of_alleged_pedophilia_elites

  • Those three article/lists are necessary and important but unpleasant so I rarely update them. Typically I avoid such matters. Delving in to research, verify, add citations, etc takes time and energy. I have several other articles that I'd like to share with you all but they are terribly unfinished messes or simple stubs as yet. I collect information as I go and intend to eventually add to and update these articles and so many more - but I only have so much time. Feel free to contribute to them yourselves and/or throw information or constructive criticisms my way.

  • What's the diff between "posts" and "comments"?

  • What's the diff between "conspiracy" and "conspiracyundone"? Seriously. I don't see a diff.

  • Any chance this might be where the Tin Foil Hat podcast researchers hang out? (There's no TFH threads.)

  • Sorry this got so long. I don't know if this forum features folding/collapsing or not. These are just brainstorming ideas, I hope you like and/or don't mind. I don't even know if this is appropriate or rude for voting forums. I'm just very excited and happy to have found you. I don't even know if I'll be posting much. I tend to do things in spurts with big gaps between while I'm onto the next thing.

  • Two weeks seems like a long time. Good thing I'm patient. Peace out. ~ Jason

Why are you here? What do you want this place to have that others don't? by Zombi in AskSaidIt

I am not a Redditor. I am a truth seeker. I came here because magnora7, founder of SaidIt, was on some conspirophile podcasts. I'd been planning to find a forum, possibly with voting capabilities, so I could do my projects and present them to the forum for feedback. I was hoping for reasonably neutral and anarcho-truther tollerant. SaidIt is better than that and welcoming to all. I didn't expect to get wrapped up in SaidIt culture but I am now.

Oh no! Open transparency! We might actually get real open-science instead of proprietary Scientism dogma serving only private corporations!!!
