Eliminate PizzaGate?!

Pedogate is a global crisis (PizzaGate is D.C.). Everyone should have easy access to this information. I agree that it's hideous, but that's the point. The public needs to be aware of this ongoing disaster, and be able to recognize the signs.

The reason it's unpopular is all of the MSM flack. Please don't suppress information.

My guess is that those posts are from Eglin, or Tel Aviv.

They've started to make a move. On a positive note, this suggests that Saidit is a credible enough information threat to finally take seriously.

You should start your own sub that is dedicated to crossposting this kind of crap. This would be useful to the community, by creating a community reported log of these shenanigans.

Name the sub, "Tel Aviv to suck my Eglin".

it will never be a real reddit alternative where you find diverse content

Reddit has made a Faustian pact with the corporate-govt. Highly censored diversity is the new norm at Reddit.

The public has woken to the fake news reality, and will be eager to find alternatives when they realize that Reddit is compromised in the same way as the MSM.

Drugs be fun, but don't to meth or opioids.

Some of life's most creative thoughts and expressions were drug-inspired.

It's not all bad. The real problem is the feelings of hopelessness, which transforms recreation into addiction.

Many of the "far right" subjects are actually closer to mainstream opinions, but are downvoted by bots (censored by marginalization), or censored outright.

Fraudulent material is rarely censored. Misinfo creates public confusion, and is a useful tool for social control.

People should want to know information that it's being withheld from the public, and why...

Popular sub fighting for Free Speech on Reddit gives in to Reddit's censorship by MrRubberDucky in MeanwhileOnReddit

It might be a decent time to head over there and plug Saidit. There's a decent chance that Reddit alternatives could get massive up-votes given the temporary outcry. Why let another crisis go to waste?

Also, I think he's burning down the house in an attempt to get the some smoke on the frontpage. A valiant effort, but it will be lost on most.

It will be interesting to see if the dam breaks when they go IPO.

There could be a flood of new folks over here. Or Reddit may censor Saidit references, and the like.

They're in the psychological warfare business of thought control, so I wouldn't put it past them. :-/

Saidit, what if we showed who voted on everything? by magnora7 in AskSaidIt

[–]Tom_Bombadil 8 insightful - 3 fun8 insightful - 2 fun9 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

Sounds great. I've been wondering who the hell is voting for that MartinTimothyesque bullshit.

However, Froglich hates that idea.

Edit: I have changed my mind. Does anyone know what the Reddit rationale was being leaving vote counts anonymous. I'd be concerned about a future big brother crackdown where voting info could be used as evidence against someone.

Here's some historical situations that may be similar in nature to a future event.

  • Red scare McCarthy-era. People were targeted as anarchist, or socialist, or people who might vote for "socialist proposals"
  • The 9/11 Muslim hysteria where thousands of Muslims were rounded up and jailed for as many as 6 months without probable cause, or any evidence
  • There was a hunt for anonymous a while back, so dissident programmer types may draw additional scrutiny.

The last 2 were within the past two decades in the US, so that's not ancient history. Who knows what other events occurred in other countries.

Up-votes may actually be more risky than actual comments. My guess is that up-votes would be manipulated as metadata. Prosecutors can create broad assumptions about intent, and there's no way to easily clarify that intent, or refute it. They'll use one-sided gotcha questions like, "have you quit beating your wife yet, yes or no?". That can catch people off guard and sunk their defense.

I'm going to have to agree with OldManCorley on this one. There are unforseen risks that could easily outweigh the short-term benefits.

Intentional sabotage cannot be ignored forever. Certain agent provacatuers do need to be addressed. Other groups have already taken the lead on this, and dealt accordingly.

One idea I had was to create one of those bots that chime in with "and my axe", etc. A custom version could be created to haunt the posts of certain repeat offenders.

Something like:

"Free speech is not a core value, when it is apples solely to statements that an individual approves. Free speech is a value when it is defended for those who use their voice to make statements that that one despises. Saidit supports free speech in all forms.

Unfortunately, certain groups or individuals have been posting comments that we cannot find any factual evidence to support. Attempts have been made to contact these individuals, but without success.

These voices have not been silenced in the interest of our commitment to free speech as a value. Saidit does not condone or endorse messages or the message history of {agent provacatuer XYZIJK}.

Please use your own critical judgment when considering messages from XYZIJK; AND MY AXE!!!.

-There I SaidIt!

Just a thought. What does the group think?

One last point of consideration. Dissent voices should be carful considered.
Good call OldManCorley. You changed my mind.

Hey Froglich. You suck.

Edit 2:. I didn't read the updated comment before the previous edit. I agree with major that ignoring bullshit is the best way to deal with most commenting issues. Organizational sabotage is an entirely different issue.

Also, if implemented, can we call the 'my axe' response "the moat/sewer of debate" or "sewer of the pyramid" or "sewer of disgrace". Free speech Bot, or "free speech defender", or sumpting.

The Pacific Northwest is in the grips of a measles outbreak that has already sickened 52 people in Washington and four in Oregon, nearly all of them children. Health officials say the spread of the highly contagious disease—which had been all but eradicated in the United States—is being fueled by parents, sometimes with the approval of their doctors, who refuse to immunize their children.

Measles is not a deadly disease. It's very similar to chicken pox. Do you know of anyone who has died of chickenpox? Me either.

It actually boosts your immune system for your entire lifespan. I would have no problem contracting measles of given the chance.

Having a 2 week fever would suck. But with plenty of vitamin A, I would be fine and immune boosted for life.
