Hey since you're new: https://saidit.net/s/SaidIt/comments/37r/welcome_to_saiditnet/

In the footer of the site is a lot of other great stuff.

You can spank your monkey anywhere, crank the shaft anywere on the web even or oogle boobies on facebook! It's more of a problem when people, and they do, link to clearly illegal (or borderline illegal nobody knows the origin of) It's an easy way to send the feds on someone.

And again, if you read the introduction post you'll get a clearer picture of saidit and that it's Not just a reddit clone, one of those differences is the porn rule.

I don't like Switzerland so here goes:

https://nordvpn.com/blog/surveillance-practices-in-switzerland-an-overview/ (2017)

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/sep/25/switzerland-votes-in-favour-of-greater-surveillance (2016, about that surveillance increase and the people of swiss wanting it)

Protonmail is based in Swiss because of the Privacy laws, which is something different. Basically something todo with your PMs and account login only. These privacy laws are not protecting your freespeech as it's used when you post/comment on saidit, it's public, like you can't claim privacy when you yell BOMB on a airplane and expect to get away with 'I said the following message is for my friend, you all could have ignored it'. For the use of saidit I would say it's a meh+, like nice to have but basically useless unless you use saidit as a PM service to conduct illegal activities and then it's not as setup as Protonmail so you're 'dun goofed' anyway.

Side note:

How do these 2 countries handle that the owners are not in their country and (probably) were not there for the contracts? I have no clue about this but I know for the infamous Swiss-banking thingie you need to be in Switzerland IIRC.

Hmm maybe you forgot to read: https://saidit.net/s/SaidIt/comments/37r/welcome_to_saiditnet/ ?

Those two are in regards to my my own statements:

  1. Not what I said, not everywhere, IMHO plenty of dedicated places do excist however.
  2. That's a big issue, I don't know you, but I as Mod wouldn't like to check every porn link to see if it's even legal.

Terror attack in Sri Lanka, 8 bombs, 200+ dead by Black in news

I was just going to post this, weird that you're the first one, it's been 7 hours already.

Terrible, probably (aacording to Sri Lanka officials) a terrorist organization that also last week demolished Buddhist statues.

I prefer reuters https://www.reuters.com/article/us-sri-lanka-blast/bombs-kill-138-wound-hundreds-in-easter-attacks-on-sri-lanka-churches-hotels-idUSKCN1RX038 but it's a pretty old report with not much updates ATM.

I would say pornography also fits under the fun category too.

I would see saidit more as a Library for adults (we discus piracy to sexworker laws) but just not the images/videos (or audio for some) of porn. Do that somewhere else, you can discuss it, just not show it.

*also these are just my opinions.

Oh man, not only is it apartheid, it's also an easy exploit of false 'security': need one forearm from a friend (or purchase one, I can see trolls paying $5 for acces) and a whole group of people can illegally enter while everyone thinks they are legal.

Catering also means verifying stuff is even legal. If you cater food, you are also responsible when it's poisoned. This is a problem for all subjects, but I hope you can see how much more difficult it is with porn than with death?

I wouldn't worry too much about article 13 as the countries themselves have to make the laws. Like in France the government actively pursuits pirates and in the Netherlands they don't.

So Kinda a side question, why not the Netherlands, aka the Internet hub of ~Western Europe~Edit: sorry, the WORLD? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amsterdam_Internet_Exchange https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Internet_exchange_points_by_size

Okay Germany wins by a little...

That's were we disagree, The catering is too much hassle (with porn) while there are all dedicated sites for it. Catering to debate and information is hard enough.

"Free speech" commenting extension Dissenter becomes spyware, banned from Firefox. by wizzwizz4 in Internet

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

Did it become spyware because firefox wanted to have a reason to ban it?

Or (as I guess) did the owners became greedy and made it into spyware with some updates?

Or was it spyware all along?
