Epic man, highly compelling. It's hard to do overtly political music right but these guys are on it.

Religious people are more likely to believe in conspiracy theories by The_In-Betweener in ConspiracyHeadlines

[–]d3rr 1 insightful - 1 funny1 insightful - 0 funny2 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

I think this can also work in reverse... people who believe in conspiracy theories are more likely to become religious. Atheists and agnostics are exposed to evidence of a vast luciferian conspiracy which may make them reconsider religious concepts/positions which they had previously dismissed as antiquated or not relevant to "modern" life.

Jonathan Richman - Velvet Underground by d3rr in music

[–]d3rr[S] 1 insightful - 1 funny1 insightful - 0 funny2 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

They were wild like the USA
A mystery band in a New York way
Rock and roll but not like the rest
And to me America at its best
How in the world were they making that sound?
Velvet Underground

A spooky tone on a Fender bass
Played less notes and left more space
Stayed kind of still, looked kind of shy
Kind of far away, kind of dignified
How in the world were they making that sound?
Velvet Underground

Well you can look at that band and wonder where
All that sound was coming from with just four people there

Twangy sounds of the cheapest types
Sounds as stark as black and white stripes
Bold and brash, sharp and rude
Like the heat's turned off and you're low on food
How in the world were they making that sound?
Velvet Underground
(Like this)

Doug and Sally inside
She's cooking for the down pipe
She's staring at Miss Rayon
She's busy licking off her pusher's hand
I'm searching for my mainline
I said I couldn't hit it sideways
I said I couldn't hit it sideways
She does it just like Sister Ray said
Alright

Wild, wild parties when they start to unwind
A close encounter of the thirdest kind
On the bandstand playing, everybody's saying
How in the world were they making that sound?
Velvet Underground

Well you could look at that band and at first sight
Say that certain rules about modern music wouldn't apply tonight

Twangy sounds of the cheapest kind
Like "Guitar sale $29.99,"
Bold and brash, stark and still
Like the heat's turned off and you can't pay the bill
How in the world were they making that sound?
Velvet Underground

Both guitars got the fuzz tone on
The drummer's standing upright pounding along
A howl, a tone, a feedback whine
Biker boys meet the college kind
How in the world were they making that sound?
Velvet Underground

Wild, wild parties when they start to unwind
A close encounter of the thirdest kind
On the bandstand grooving, everybody moving
How in the world are they making that sound?
Velvet Underground

So they jumped right to a 7 day ban? Which rules did they say it broke? I guess banning you but leaving the post up is their way of not censoring?

This is pure r/conspiracy to me, shining light on some of the dark sides of all abrahamic religions equally.

I say go hog wild and stop supporting any company that supports the Military Industrial Complex or that doesn't support your privacy. Plus you'll save money and have less to learn in the long run, less stressful changes. And anything you bought through Apple you have a legal or at least ethical right to pirate without the DRM. Or export it all.

Seconded. /u/magnora7 I think all we need for a canary is a "Warrant Canary" post on /s/SaidIt where we specify a last edited date, and a "Canary" link to it in the footer. Of course there's the hassle of updating it weekly or monthly or quarterly.

Here's some sample canaries:

For starters, there's no downvote here so content can't be buried. And brigading/vote manipulation will not be allowed. Past that, we're open to ideas. Maybe we'll get strict about ips and rate limiting to prevent upvote bots. But this is an anonymous platform so I don't think there's a silver bullet.

Unrelated to vote manipulation, we have thought about a system where sub users can vote to kick out corrupted mods.

Way cool. For anyone else out of the loop:

As we speculated previously, Valve have now officially announced their new version of 'Steam Play' for Linux gaming using a modified distribution of Wine called Proton, which is available on GitHub. What does it do? In short: it allows you to play Windows games on Linux, directly through the Steam client as if they were a Linux game.

These sound pretty good. So it's about giving every sub a fair shake and not letting popular subs overwhelm hot and new and top, on /s/home * and /s/all and /s/subscribed ? For the time range, it could use the "links from" filtering, and you could pick "past 24 hours".
