They were exiled from Reddit and are still adjusting, it's all good for now.

I got a little bit of an explanation earlier here

You "downvote" it by ignoring it and upvoting stuff you actually like.

Reddit was broken, this is an attempt to find a solution.

I'm down to try it out for a bit - but I think the ability for third parties to simply harvest the data/usernames might be too much of a risk.

We all know why we are here, after all.

Reddit because I posted about how Q was a LARP and was banned.

Twitter - I signed up for an account - signed into my brand new shiny account and found I was already banned... I guess my username is on a list, after eveything I've said on youtube.

I'm also shadowbanned on youtube apparently.

FYI: it still gives points, if you hadn't noticed. Reddit was broken, this was an attempt to find a solution. I can't see anyone changing it on your guys account.

I've already heard from some of the members why the exodus occurred and what not - it's a good cause, the guys you're up against seem like complete scum bags.

This place is meant to be better than reddit - and the admins/community are welcoming of all new-comers (there have been a few exodii here), but it's poor form to come into a new place and immediately act like it is just some anarchist commune and getting in the face of the people who are already there, right?

That's my point.

I'm sure your community IS awesome, for those people who enjoy it. As for "snitching" - I don't know who I would narc on you guys to, aside from the admins here - but quite frankly, I have much more important things to do with my time.

I really do wish you guys good luck (which you should know, since it was a reply made to you), just don't fuck up this place

Edit: as for hanging out at the bottom of the pyramid (assuming you're referring to the pyramid of debate), said pyramid is non-negotiable, as part of site-wide rules - which is, again, up to the admins and not me - so, it's your account and sub-saidit, I do other stuff with my time.

Fire extinguishers can also be used to COMMIT SUICIDE... AND to KILL people! (Sure it's a tiny fraction of all extinguisher owners, but who cares, amiright?)

These should be banned and the professional extinguisher users should be trusted without question.

Poll: Americans view fake news as a bigger problem than terrorism (Comment are a real goldmine!! /s) by Vigte in MeanwhileOnReddit

[–]Vigte[S] 7 insightful - 2 fun7 insightful - 1 fun8 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Some of my favourites:

Fake news IS terrorism.

Pretty big difference between the two.

Yup, conservative terrorism by emasuclated white men, inspired by the incitement of violence by Trump.

Oh here we go...

50% of the people who think fake news is a problem are the people who think CNN, ABC, NBC, etc are fake news. The terrorists are in this 50%. Btw, definitely not saying those news organizations are great. They are mega corporations with their own interests. They just so happen to be against the current president.

The other 50% are the people you’re referring to, who know it’s the outright propaganda outlets like fox and brietbart that are the problem.

(Your side bad, mine good!!)

Whiteness was invented for the slave trade.

Oh, I see, it all makes sense now!

So do you or don't you admit that the "white race" was in fact invented?

Invented?

Did you know Arabs were enslaving people before Europeans turned up? I'm sure someone has told you this before. Did Arabs invent whiteness?

At least someone is trying to be sensible. (So they try to time him up in semantics about exactly WHEN the term "Arab" came about... lol)

Especially the lie that Islamist's are the cause of most terrorism, when we know it's Christian white males.

back to it...

Anyway, I just can't continue reading this cesspit.

Gillette (the razor company) has gone FULL "man bad wamen perfec" and they are getting murdered by words all over the internet right now.

I have never cringed so fucking hard.

The comments are a gold mine - the account is even deleting comments. Videos ABOUT this video are already coming out.

The stock price has gone down (SLIGHTLY) towards the end of the day, but the trading day is closed now, expect MUCH higher losses tomorrow.

Jk.

I remember ONE THOUGHT I had while I was seeing a pirate movie in theaters with my dad - the ship was sinking and I thought that they could use my little lego boat pretty badly.

Not sure how old I was or what the film was, man that bothers me still that I don't know what movie it was.

I bet I remember it because it's probably the first time I saw someone die... damn... I'm shook now...

It's RT, so keep your bullshit-shields up. The author of the study is the guest, at least.

To be clear, it is only studies regarding 3 districts all in California and 3 search engines, however I think its pretty obvious that he's got some good points that likely apply to larger scales.

How Joe Rogan’s Hugely Popular Podcast Became an Essential Platform for “Freethinkers” Who Hate the Left (Left is turning on Rogan for not supporting censorship, at one point use overtly right phrases etc, attack him for every controversial guest ever, proving 1st line true, which they mocked) by Vigte in whatever

[–]Vigte[S] 6 insightful - 3 fun6 insightful - 2 fun7 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

2nd paragraph, they claim:

Harris bemoaned a “world where people are having their reputations destroyed and their careers threatened for tweets they sent as teenagers,” though he didn’t specify whose reputations had been ruined by their teenage tweets, and Rogan didn’t ask him to clarify. But the implication was clear: Holding people accountable for what they say and what those words do is an offense far worse than saying cruel, racist, and divisive things in the first place. The reputational damage done to the utterer is the real social problem, not the more diffuse damage done by the utterance.

Then they do exactly that for the rest of the article, attacking him for every controversial guest he's hosted).

At one point, they use a plainly Owen Benjamin (right wing stnad up comedian and live streamer) insult:

As a podcaster, the 51-year-old Rogan is basically what you’d get if a less-neurotic Marc Maron and a less-manic Alex Jones had a baby who looked like a muscular thumb.

It's hard to tell if the author is a crypto-Rightwinger, whether the left has been stealing memes from the right and/or watching their content/studying their enemy.

I asked my parents if I could watch it (during the first or second season when it first came out) - they watched it with me and told me no more, because it had no real message and thus no real purpose.

When I watched it a few years later, I realised they were right.

Until I watched it again recently - they've changed, the show has changed and now I've watched every season. My parents were right at the time - but so so wrong now, a bias I am sure they won't ever be able to get over.

My favourite line was this one, from Stan, Season 10 episode 12:

The whole conspiracy is a generationally-transmitted, blackmail based pyramid scheme.

The true secret, as William Cooper said - "is that there is no secret at all, except how to use the promise of a secret to control others."

Some of these people were practically born into this kind of slavery - I almost feel bad for a lot of the pawns and low-tier minions. I bet a lot want out, but know what happens when you try.

Just another reason I think violence is not the answer to this - or almost any other problem.

I meant, kind of highlighting a rebuttle to a post.

As in - if a comment is getting more insighfuls than what is "above" it in the chain (be that OP, or a comment) - it could be highlighted, as it's obviously a "really good reply".
