Fuck yeah bro. Let's make this place grow into a formidable competitor to Reddit & Facebook. Spread the word if there's any way to do it that hasn't been done already. Thanks!

ELI5: Why is everyone so obsessed over Nikola Tesla? What could he have really done? by Orangutan in whatever

[–]Orangutan[S] 1 insightful - 1 funny1 insightful - 0 funny2 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

I just thought it would be funny to submit a couple throw back links to Reddit's prime days. Where I learned about Nikola Tesla, Mitch Hedberg, and mass organizing took place. Was an awesome time.

Andrew Yang: "I was invited to meet with Richard Branson, the founder of the Virgin Group, by a friend. Richard is one of the most prominent leaders who has already come out in favor of Universal Basic Income (others include Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Albert Wenger, and more)." by Orangutan in BasicIncome

I'm somewhat concerned about the company he is keeping as far as Richard Branson, Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, but I'm unfamiliar with Albert Wenger. I guess any politician trying to genuinely win the presidency has to eventually associate with some the rich and powerful of a society in an effort to help him win.

I posted the title that way to show the absurdity of the official title of the article. We should get RFK Jr. on here for an AMA, I really respect him for his views on this and the environment in general. Peace.

So the advantage is that it was less expensive? Makes sense. If you could raise the $7k or get it from a donor would you buy saidit.com or prefer that?

What's the advantage of having the site listed as .net instead of the more common .com?

I like the changes so far.

Just look at some of the subreddits for people who were banned; it is horrible.

What does this mean or refer to? I've never seen one or know where to even look. Thanks though.

Share any stories from here on other platforms of social media too. If we can trust this place it might be cool in the future. Facebook and Twitter are censoring. Reddit is banning communities who get too popular. If this place gets some of that crowd it could be good going forward.
