Does we really need canvas fingerprinting in saidit? I find it in Reddit, too. by RavAshi in SaidIt

Okay I reproduced this in Firefox and did some testing. It's alerting on getBoundingClientRect() as used in bootstrap.tooltip.js and/or jquery-2.1.1.js https://github.com/libertysoft3/reddit-ae/search?q=getBoundingClientRect&unscoped_q=getBoundingClientRect

Also alerting here: https://getbootstrap.com/docs/3.3/components/

So at this point these two js libraries are so integral to the site that they cannot be removed. If you want to check and see if newer jquery and bootstrap are cleaner and don't set this extension off, maybe a case for upgrading can be made. But on the bright side I came across none of this shadowban code that does actual browser fingerprinting.

I found a Reddit post where they say this fingerprinting is part of the shadowban system, to carry a shadowban on to the next account. I'll dig up the code and see if it can be disabled.

We shall walk again down along the lane
Down the avenue just like we used to do
With our heads so high, smile at the passers by
Then we'll softly sigh ay, ay, ay, ay, ay

Everyone, everyone, everyone, everyone
Everyone, everyone, everyone, everyone

By the winding stream we shall lie and dream
We'll make dreams come true if we want them to
Yes, all will come play the pipes and drum
Sing a happy song and we'll sing along

Everyone, everyone, everyone, everyone
Everyone, everyone, everyone, everyone

We shall walk again down along the lane
Down the avenue just like we used to do
With our heads so high, smile at the passers by
Then we'll softly sigh ay, ay, ay, ay, ay

Can you provide some background info on this? We're into less invasive tracking it if doesn't wreck features like rate limiting. Reddit does have some extreme analytics going on.

yes yes it is suboptimal and depends on your screen width. darker wouldn't work for larger screens. hmm.

Yep, then we need to mesh it also onto radio networks, for when ISPs start their political censorship. I guess the WIFI mesh stuff might work too, but it will suck for rural people probably. The radio stuff you have showed us is really encouraging.

You're right, he's calling his side effects of free speech "very real problems". Sad.

does that mean he's in it for the $$$? Hopefully he's just dumb and polling his audience. he did post this:

By the way everyone chill: this is just a discussion. These are very real problems that I’m interested in solving. I don’t know how yet. Crowdsourcing feedback and insight could lead to an answer though.

I guess everyone wants to market as a free speech site until the going gets tough.

OP what you are seeing is that self-voting is "allowed and remembered", but that it does not affect the score. Reddit works the same way. We have a proposed task to allow full self voting in the future, where your funny vote would give it another point and where you could un-insightful yourself to start a post/comment at 0 points.

Could we give "interesting" and "funny" at the same time? by RavAshi in SaidIt

Yes, it's also in the content policy
