Sad. Monopoly mafias (corporate hand-in-hand with state) bury you to stay in power and get away with it. Look at the justice served to Assange, Snowden and Manning, countless other journalists, Epstein, JFK, and feel free to mention others.

When the direct fight is unwinnable, you have to opt-out: defect from the economy, pay the least taxes (zero if possible), refuse to work for the monster, and refuse to buy from it. Only this way can we weaken and starve it.

Still, I'd expect some more covert work and better OPSEC from Aaron.

Thanks for your reply.

I believe he writes in a brutal and savage form, but also that he is honest.

I think he dragged down only the form and tone, but not the ideas. I believe he was trying to expose "shills" which are corporate or gov actors undermining the discourse; I think "shill" was a bad use of the word; he had no trouble with anyone promoting their own work (actual shills).

This, and because the ban was sudden, is why I think you should give him another chance. Of course, I will still respect your decision since it's your site, and have explained why you banned him.

The prospect of a shadow mute/ban is chilling to me. Thanks for the explanation!

But Coronavirus killed 919 people in a 24-hour period ending on 2020-03-27.

To clarify my angle: Big Brother is the state.

The state's duty is, in theory, to ensure rights of citizens.

Among other rights, people vulnerable to COVID have the right to live. But people less vulnerable will spread the virus.

I personally believe the state response is proportional to the danger.

Do you have arguments showing otherwise?

It's a pretty dumb move to tase a cop. But the punishment should fit the crime, and cops should not do the punishing.

Still waiting for that second book sale lol

Sorry to hear that :(

I want to give you some advice.

First of all, your websites should feature prominent links to the place to buy books. Perhaps something like: "Want to support my work? Buy a book of mine here." below the Orwell quote, in a visible rectangle (check out "call-to-action buttons"). A little design goes a long way.

The current links in "NEWS FLASH:" are quite low on the page, and look like regular text part of the article.

Also, I'd shorten the profile here to, say, 50 words, so the books are visible without needing to scroll down.

Second, perhaps look into more avenues of advertisement where your target audience might be around:

  • Reddit (perhaps they still want your money in spite of banning you?)
  • 4chan, 8kun (formerly 8chan)
  • physical ads: newspaper/classifieds, flyers - perhaps near train stations (people who use trains like privacy).
  • DuckDuckGo: https://help.duckduckgo.com/duckduckgo-help-pages/company/advertising-and-affiliates/
  • Anonymous Ads
  • FB, Google (if you want to feed the beasts, and if you get ROI? but I doubt your target audience looks at oligopoly ads).

I'd invest a book's worth of cost (or some other small amount of your choice at first), and see what they bring. Don't keep investing if they bring no visits.

all advertising is just propaganda

Yes it is, but some people might be actively looking to spend money for something, but not sure what. If the advert is well-targeted, and if it's respectful to the user, then the user might like the recommendation.

I usually block all third-party requests on a website for privacy reasons, but if I like the website, I might let ads through to both support the site, and perhaps see something interesting.

Edit: lists require an empty line before them.

Huh. Thanks.

BREAKING NEWS - "All Olympic athletes test positive for Coronavirus" by [deleted] in Jokes

I think I got it, but it didn't make me laugh.

The organizers were very slow to decide to postpone. Title is part of the joke, implying they wouldn't postpone even if all athletes had COVID.

Why do lawyers train for 7 years to learn the law, but the cops only train for 8 weeks to enforce it? by magnora7 in memes

Maybe it happens. We can not find out if someone purposely gamed their IQ test to get a specific goal.

But I believe your main point is realistic. There is little incentive for high IQ people to put up with boredom AND physical risk, as opposed to just boredom, such as in software development (at least in my experience).

As for salaries, I don't have data.

Politicians need no training, yet they make the laws the lawyers have to interpret, and the cops to enforce.

You'd have to lie in order to serve society more effectively, huh.

You'd be like a reverse politician, who lies in order to mooch off society!

I feel you.

Here's a clue: the pyramid of debate is not very enforced. It's very few mods against a sea of content.

I have thought of quitting Saidit and all other "mass" chat tools because of people who spread misinformation with the sole purpose of destroying your time - say, being hard to debunk, but of no consequence or applicability to the real world.

A saidittor pointed out these might be covert ops trying hard to undermine inconvenient organizations.

Still, there is the Friends tool. If you find a respectful or enjoyable person, friend them. If you find they waste your time or that their behavior changed (account sold, bait & switch, etc), unfriend them.

Then, instead of browsing the main site, browse the Friends edition.

I can get my kicks like this, and I still lurk for this reason. Hope you find it useful.

Also, magnora7 says you should report people who disrespect the pyramid - they definitely help. But I have seen not much consequence, when I reported lots of posts one day. So, that is why I use the "Friends" whitelist instead of the reporting blacklist.

Unemployment has a higher mortality rate than Coronavirus and may be the bigger killer of the two by oaf in conspiracy

Sure, my argument is very simple, and falls short on accuracy. But it should give you an idea of the relative scale compared to the typical death rate.

First of all, you edited your comment and added a CHANNEL, NOT A VIDEO, while I was replying. That is dishonest.

Second of all, you have not addressed any of my comments in the comment.

US Navy relieves ship commander who urged for stronger coronavirus response by supertms38 in WorldNews

I guess soldiers are paid to die for their country if needed. But they shouldn't die foolishly, and their superiors shouldn't ignore their concerns.

Dr. Katz Killsum by hennaojichan in funny

[–]danuker 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

This isn't funny to me.

In Italy, the regular death rate is about 622 thousand people per year. This translates to about 1704 per day.

But authorities say coronavirus killed 919 people in a 24-hour period ending on 2020-03-27.

This means the extra risk of death on that day was about 54% higher.

Catholic school board stocks pro-LGBT book glamorizing kids performing ‘oral sex’. The book contains 'explicit language, violent acts, and graphic descriptions of oral sex carried out by children as young as six-years-old.' by Chipit in news

No, sorry, I only responded to your first sentence. The school didn't give the LGBT book to kids, only had it in stock.

Your contradiction of every government is an extraordinary claim.

I am pretty sure this omission from the article means to sensationalize it. People will think it's for coronavirus, but I very much doubt it.
