She might have been like a contact point for the team that ran the account.

Could be, that would make sense.

Obviously she knows what reddit it. There's picture with her and conde nast investors and Ellen Pao tweeted that she was at one of their parties.

I mean I guess... just because she's buddies with a billionaire doesn't mean she knows how their business works. Her job is to cozy up to billionaires at parties, not to understand their business. But you're right, she probably does at least know about how reddit works at least a bit

I mean I think maxwellhill was like 5 people working 8 hour shifts, given the sheer volume of content. They have 14 MILLION post karma. 14 fucking million karma. If the average post got 500 upvotes (which is a ton) then that's 28,000 posts.

This wasn't a hobbyist. This isn't something you just do in your free time, in between billionaire parties and mossad visits. But if mossad hired the group of people that ran the username, and tied it maxwell even though she probably doesn't even know what reddit is, I wouldn't be surprised.

You did come off as rude, but I do also understand your frustrations because there is a lot of nonsense censorship happening on social media right now. I accept your apology and I forgive you.

I'd love to be more open about this stuff in the future, it's just a lot of weird things to deal with and new territory for a lot of us, and I always worry about giving the attackers publicity and fame on saidit which will lead to more attacks. I just want the attacks to end, not get in a huge public battle, you know? But also I totally get the users and mods should know what's going on too though.

I just have to balance informing people with not making a big spectacle of things to inflame the attackers, and finding that balance is not easy. I think maybe we can start sharing all messages from our server company publicly or something... that might be a good idea. But that comes with risks too, as it exposes us a bit, and exposes our weak points publicly... You know what I mean? I will think about it more and read up on the risks of doing that. But I think maybe we could have a policy to post those server company messages publicly in the future on a sub specified for that purpose.

By "her account" you mean run by people she paid, right? She's too busy going to billionaire parties and stuff to spend significant time posting to reddit (and that account was a very significant account with tons of posts)

But it certainly is an interesting connection

Interesting link! Thanks for that.

Cost is another issue. If we switched to one of those, our server costs would increase by about 40% for the same equipment, looking at their pricing. So if we got booted from our current server company that would be an option, but it's probably too costly to do before hand, imo

Next time I will probably tell them no, the one removal was just to show them we acted in good faith and cared about the request in general. Because if we ignore it completely, it could potentially be escalated to something that we can't ignore. So I want to show them that we take it seriously, and removing one thing was the way to do that. Next time a similar request is generated with similar links, I will be more comfortable in saying no, and our server company will understand because they will see this one person generating the same requests again and again, and they have methods of dealing with that sort of spam.

Yes that's why I removed one, because I was acting in good faith, and wanted to show our server company that.

Then next time we get a takedown request like this, I feel more comfortable saying "no" because they know we've taken it seriously in the past. Then the server company will be much more likely to take our side instead of the attacker's side.

We ask that you consider removing the specified content in good faith; however, as the request does not include a US court order we will not require that you do so.

Please let us know how you plan to proceed.

Kind Regards,

So in good faith, we removed the 1 post I thought was dragging discussion down the pyramid of debate the most (the one advocating for people to spam the n-word over and over in chat with the intent of angering another person) so we could reply that we looked in to it.

So that's why we removed that one post today. Hope that clears things up.

You don't really understand how this works.

Servers don't just "take down" things on the websites they host, because they don't run and own the software, so they don't have the means to remove a single post, only shut the whole website down. So they make requests of the people they rent to, to make the changes themselves.

Like I said, I may show the message, just let me double-check that sharing it doesn't put us in any legal trouble or anything.

They don't tell us who made the request. But it's pretty clear it's originating from this sub.

I'm going to bat for you guys, to try and defend this sub so the whole site doesn't get shut down. They wanted us to delete like 20 things, including the whole sub, but I removed just one post.

They didn't even wait, they've been trying since the 80s, backing Iraqi Saddam's invasion in to Iran (which failed): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_support_for_Iraq_during_the_Iran%E2%80%93Iraq_War

And then they overthrew Saddam and conquered Iraq after he failed.

They keep trying Syria too. They succeeded in Iraq and Egypt and Lebanon and Jordan and Yemen, but they've failed to retake Iran or Syria from Russia's backing.

I mean there are reasons to be legitimately upset at whoever organized this entrapment party, but Pao is just the messenger. People reacting at Pao like they have is the exact reason more people don't open up about this stuff. She's just saying "this was public knowledge, yet this person was still allowed, isn't that weird?" and I think that's a perfectly reasonable question, despite the fact she asked it a decade after the fact.

The way many people are reacting, it's like going to a party where OJ Simpson shows up and then going "who allowed the murderer here?" and then everyone going "You knew he was murderer? Why didn't you say something!"

I mean I doubt they announced Ghislane was going to be at the party before Pao arrived. That's kind of the whole point, is to entrap people.

Pao avoiding photos and a meeting with these people was the right move. They were obviously trying to entrap her as well. But she should've said something about it earlier. But of course that was when she just got selected to be CEO of reddit and she didn't want to mess that up, I'm sure.

Epstein was investigated by the FBI in 2008. He's a convicted pedophile. Everyone knew this. Everyone knew Ghislane was his associate. So the real person to blame is the person who made the guest list for the party, and I think that's who Ellen Pao is trying to call out.

Actually I mispoke, the real rates are much higher:

APR ranges from 391% to more than 521% for payday loans.

According to google. I think the limit should be about 10% APR per year. Beyond that it just begins creating systemic financial risks that lead to things like the financial crisis of 2008. But I see your point about it being a symptom of a deeper problem.

Alright I just reduced the hot seconds by 20%, so the front page should change more often now. We actually had it on 36 hours, now it's down to 30 hours. Now that we have enough comments and stuff it can support the faster change. We'll continue adjusting that down as we get more traffic. Thanks

I agree, it's reaching maximum saturation, and that is waking a lot of people up.

Also remember there's a lot of young people too. Like 25% of the world's population is under 15 years old, so for a lot of people this stuff is just beginning to click because they're just being exposed to it for the first time. So be patient, people are waking up. Just keep trying to help that along, it's all we can really do.

Yeah the problem is getting such a work program through congress. They won't pass funding for such a bill, because of "partisan" reasons. But when the military-industrial-banking complex needs more funding, suddenly it's a "bipartisan" issue and is passed immediately.

How about we start small and add a blurb to that one listing only about how you should click 'mute sub' if you are seeing too much of a sub you don't care about?

Okay that sounds like a great and easy solution. I'd be 100% down for that. Just right above the first listing or something. Not sure the best way to accomplish though in the code though.

I don't mind them being on the subs page, the goal would not be to disappear them if we changed things. If we made the change, the goal would simply be to make /new more usable so we then get a better front page, instead of scaring everyone away from /new lol. But I can see the merit to leaving it as-is too, I honestly don't mind either way. Totally up to you.

Agreed, the media is a pied piper (5 companies owning 95% all US media) trying to culturally engineer divides so that those in power can remain in power over the coming decades. And those in power are paying the media to do this, I would bet anything.

We can't out-bid the billionaires, and our government isn't going to keep the media in check because it's also owned by those same billionaires.

So the only solution that remains is that we have to collectively stop falling for the bullshit, and to help each other not fall for the bullshit.

I know, it's literally nonsensical.

Although I have to give a shout out to Oklahoma, they added a state-mandated high-school course in household finances, to cover stuff like balancing a checkbook and paying bills. So that's cool of Oklahoma to be ahead of the curve like that. But this type of thing should be way more common. The disconnect between what's taught in school and what's needed in life, is far too large

I think "whites using hate speech" is not a counter, but is the exact reaction the people in charge are trying to create.

They want divide and conquer. And if they can get all the races openly hating each other, then they win. Don't give them the satisfaction.

I'm not saying be weak or defenseless. Not at all. But if your reaction is to just sink to their level and start throwing insults too, then that's just falling in to the trap that's been engineered for people, imo. Then it's just a short step to civil war, and then the military-industrial complex is back in control.

The media is playing games with people's minds, to try and rile them up in to a reaction that is controlled by those who have a monopoly on violence. Typical media. Typical divide-and-conquer tactics. It's easier to just sidestep that entirely and build something better.

It is indoctrination. It's literally obedience training. It's based off the Prussian Schooling Model, which was designed to create military obedience, after Prussia lost the Battle of Jena in 1806 because of poor obedience. America then re-tooled this successful Prussian Schooling Model to the industrial era, to create obedient workers. And that's literally the school system we have today. Any learning that occurs is strictly incidental, and I don't mean that in a joking way. They want the people smart enough to run the machines, but not smart enough to question the increasingly shittier conditions they're forced to endure.

There's more emotional awareness than ever, but less emotional intelligence. People are taught to expose all their emotions openly (which is generally good) but then aren't taught how to improve those responses and learn from their emotional mistakes. A lot of people see emotions as some immutable paragon of truth, and any emotion that is felt identifies the true character of that moment. So rather than leaning on rationality, they lean on emotional responses, and then they become intellectually-stunted adults who can't properly process their own emotions, much less the emotions of others.

TIL since it is forbidden for Jews to carry certain objects in public during Shabbat, many cities have installed lines in the air, enclosing the city, making the entire city count as private domain and thus making it allowed to carry among other things, house keys, tissues, medication, and babies. by Jashfior in TIL

It's called an Eruv. Every major city has at least one eruv that covers several square miles. The line must be unbroken and must have certain types of supports that anchor it to the ground. In reality it's a string they run up along the telephone poles by the wires.

Here's a map of the manhattan eruv, which "encloses" most of manhattan: https://images.shulcloud.com/634/uploads/manhattan-eruv.jpg

Tolerance is a very tricky thing. It's so important to be kind to others, because it makes the world go around.

But on the other hand there are a lot of vultures out there looking to exploit people's compassion for others, and hoist them on their own petard. One must be careful in this regard, but without losing true tolerance and kindness. It's a careful balance, and many people seem to swing too far to one side or the other

I think they're done. They did 1000 within in an hour for a reason. They wanted to do it all at once, like ripping off a bandaid. That's how they've done it in the past too. That minimizes the amount of resistance the admins have to deal with as they perform the bans, and they know it.

I don't think they will do a trickle-ban system of a few every day. I think they've learned that's a bad idea. So instead I expect to see every 3 months, another 2000 subreddits banned. Something like that.
