There are two things here you are confusing. The registrar, and the registry. The registry is the final arbiter of which domains are allowed to exist. The registrar is their subordinate. It's a company you go to when you want a domain. If they kick you out you can continue using the same domain if you find another registrar for it.

For the big tlds like .com, the registry is usually very permissive. It's the registrar (eg godaddy) causing the problem. But for niche tlds, it's more unknown how the registry will behave.

I agree that excessive fracturing is a problem. Hopefully AoV will either pick a winner, or someone will make an app for aggregating them.

There is a historical continuity to what is happening. It's unsavory but it's there https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clientelism

many definitions for clientelism have been proposed, according to the political scientist Allen Hicken, it is generally thought that there are four key elements of clientelistic relationships:

  • Dyadic relationships: Simply, these are two-way relationships.

  • Contingency: Delivery of a service to a citizen by a politician or broker is contingent on the citizen's actions on behalf of the politician or party through which they are receiving services.

  • Hierarchy: The politician or party is in a higher position of power than the citizen.

  • Iteration: The relationship is not a one-off exchange, but rather, ongoing.

I think the best illustration of the contingency and the hierarchy present, is Biden's statement 'If you have a problem figuring out whether you're for me or Trump, then you ain't black'. It's a really in-your-face power move. You're the cattle, I'm the shepherd, you fucking do what I say, and I'll keep the gibs flowing.

The SJW's / Woke people often get called the left. Because there is a surprising amount of collaboration, and because they are both represented by the Democratic party.

If you are an old school working class commie I can see how that is strange, but thats how the battle lines are drawn nowadays.

I don't really care so long as they are resistant to SJW pressure.

Yes, that was what I tried to find out. In this chain I think PWC is the weak link. I wouldn't be surprised if they did fold to SJW pressure.

I see the opposite. How they are all like kinda at peace with it. Like "oh mega corp doesn't approve of ChapoTrapHouse, that's fair, let's allow them to dissolve it if that's how they feel, here are some controlled opposition alternatives". It's honestly pretty sad how how much boot they lick.

So do you think posting divisive content, that divides people by race, in the moment of this revolution, is a good idea?

I find this sentiment from the Admin pretty concerning. Like he obviously thinks this revolution is so important everyone needs to suspend their normal posting and join in.

Well I'm not an American, so it's obviously not for me. I think I heard that they offered to host other subs that got kicked off reddit. I wonder if that will mean they would go from international to american-focused.

It's creepy as fuck to think that the messages you get from your friends are, while not propaganda itself, shaped by propagandistic forces. We saw this first with the feed algorithms, that would filter out friends wrongspeaking, and promote friends rightspeaking. People wisened up and moved to group chats. Now with these keyboards, even the group chats will be controlled.

And at the same time, because of quarantines, the last safe outlet we have - speaking to each other IRL, is being taken from us. Very dark times ahead.

Singapore introduced tough laws against fake news. Coronavirus has put them to the test. by AliceofX in KotakuInAction

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

Singapore is a very fascinating country. Ostensibly a democracy, but actually closer to a dictatorship. Their leader is probably the most intelligent of all the world leaders. Basically a philosopher king or enlightened despot. He studied Mathematics at Cambridge University (arguably top university for math in the world). And he studied at the Trinity college of Cambridge (they have a bunch and trinity is the most prestigious). And he became the "senior wrangler" which means he was top of his class.

I don't support their method of government, but I do enjoy watching it from afar as an interesting case study.

This is the most disturbing part of the whole thing to me. Zuckerberg is literally telling the whole media to kiss the ring now. He is saying his jurisdiction is not just Facebook, but any conduct anywhere on the planet can be grounds for trashing your business.
