Gets really old... anyway, I try to provide a home for you all that doesn't get destroyed by someone else, I'm glad some of you all appreciate the efforts that go in to creating and maintaining this place.

Wow that was like a nuclear bomb almost, that was a much bigger explosion than I ever expected. Holy cow.

Reuters says it occurred in a port area but doesn't give a reason why: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-lebanon-security-blast/large-blast-in-beirut-port-area-shakes-lebanons-capital-sources-say-idUSKCN25021M

Another video on twitter (just below the OP video on twitter) shows what look to be fireworks going off right before the big explosion, so it might've been a shipment of fireworks.

Yup and it makes me sad, because when I try to limit those people... they ironically cry "You're killing the community!"

So I can never tell who is actually IP2 community and who is just a troll crying foul and playing victim. On the rest of saidit it's easier, because the level of decorum is higher, but on IP2 it can be hard to differentiate...

Well there's certainly the motive for them to do so... I already saw an article about how Israel has a contract with Lebanon that if they support Hezbollah in any way at all, then Israel can do something to Lebanon like invade it or something... so if Israel wanted to make that happen, this would probably check those boxes. So it could be a regional territory grab based on a past contract. I don't know much about the contract itself or what it entails though.

Awesome. It's a good movie for a lot of reasons: It shows how complex war is, and how when fighting a war you might not be fighting for who you think you're fighting for... It also tells a very niche viewpoint of a little-mentioned war, so it's interesting for that historical aspect too. Definitely worth a watch!

Literally advocating rape. But "It's a quote from blade" even though they didn't use quotes, so somehow that makes it all okay. I even unbanned the guy, yet he's here shitting on me in this very thread.

If people wouldn't advocate violence, then I wouldn't have to ban anyone. I'm not too keen on spending my whole day keeping track of ban levels and warnings for people who are literally promoting murder and rape.

We're improving our tools, and I will probably build a ban function with a timer, but at the same time, people should not be saying this shit in the first place. We have the rule "no advocating violence" for a reason.

Lebanon used to be a pretty great country from what I have read before this whole Iran/Israel proxy war there.

I would like to take this moment to tell people about the animated historical movie "Waltz With Bashir" which is about this exact thing. It's a good movie, worth a watch.

Yeah that'd be good. The current "strike" system is me giving them a warning in a comment, which almost always leads to a fight, especially on IP2. I don't want to spend my day fighting with people. So if I could issue the strikes in the form of temporary bans with increasing length, I think that would work well from my end and would give the users a chance to change their behavior too.

People are kind of actually advocating violence though. And then pretending it's a quote when it's not, just so they can get away with it.

Advocating violence is against site rules. Period. If you're quoting someone, then put it in quotes if you want to make it obvious it's a quote and you're not saying it.

I'm not "rapid fire banning" I banned a few people because they were openly advocating violence, as I have to do from time to time. It's my job to ban people advocating violence, and that isn't going to change.

Don't advocate violence, and you won't get banned.

We don't have a system where I can ban people for a number of days, but we might develop one soon.

I can't be playing nice with people who are very likely putting this website on federal watch lists, you realize. Maybe your friends shouldn't be quoting people advocating rape? Maybe people just shouldn't advocate violence?

I don't understand why these simple things are such a problem for some people. 99.9% of people here manage to comment and post without advocating to kill or injure anyone. So your friends can figure it out too. It's not hard.

Yes I agree. However that conflicts with my goal of being transparent and open about the reasons for why things are happening... so I'm caught in this impossible position. If I explain everything in great detail all the time, everyone is informed but also fights with me about everything constantly and it's exhausting. If I don't explain what I do, my life is easier but the site's operations get less and less transparent to the users. So I'm always having to balance these conflicting goals. Even after 3 years of doing this I'm still not sure what the right way is. However the timer ban levels seem like a good next move.

Yeah I wish we had more intermediate-level ban tools as well, I do think we can build a 24-hour ban, and a 3-day ban. I agree it would be more fair, especially for more established users. I have to build it though, it's probably a 10-hour project to create. Hopefully this month I can find time to knock it out.

God that's so awful. It shattered that glass balcony the person filming was behind. And all the people below driving and walking... there might be even more fatalities than I was thinking. I'd hope to think it's in the 50-200 range, but it may have killed thousands of people. Horrific.

Nice observation! Google says this about it:

Ammonium perchlorate is used in fireworks, explosives, and rocket motors. Also used by the U.S. military in rockets, explosives, flares and ammunition. The chemistry of the solid rocket booster propellant can be summed up in this reaction: Once ignited, the fuel-burning reaction cannot be stopped.

Yeah I'm thinking this is 50-200 fatalities probably... not good. I heard the firefighters were just arriving and had set up to put out the fire right before it exploded... so that's horrible. On the plus side, the fireworks going off might have given people enough warning to get away at least some distance. So that hopefully saved a lot of lives, but I don't think anyone expected an explosion of that immense size.

Interesting. Now the only question is was it accidental or intentional... Seems accidental so far based on what little I know

I don't think it was a second explosion, it was just the shock waves. The "first explosion" was the combustion, and the "second explosion" was the low-pressure shockwave imploding to fill the space vacated by the explosion, and then going outward after it imploded. At least that was my take on it

Yeah the yellow fog after is why people are saying ammoium perchlorate was the explosive

Agreed. Best case this was just some fireworks not being stored properly. Worst case this was a setup to try to initiate war in the region. I hope calm heads prevail

It's because you keep ban evading, and your other posts are also breaking the rules. Go away.

Well, you don't become a billionaire by running money-losing businesses. But it is her personal magazine and PR vehicle, so it's true she could fund it out of pocket if she wanted. So if she's closing it, it's probably for PR reasons. But it could also just be she's bored with it and also her staff all doesn't want to work because of covid, so she just decided to call it quits. But it could be related to allegations too. It's probably all tied together.

Why I like saidit. It doesn't have downvotes, and that is pro free-speech. When you have downvotes that discourages people from speaking up. We don't need downvotes. If someone says something dumb here, then it just won't rise up, and that's enough. There doesn't need to be double punishment. by suckitreddit in censorship

Your post is exactly how I think about the downvotes too. No need for double punishment.

In addition, I also think the up/down thing puts people in a judge-y mindset, like they're Caesar with the thumbs up/down thing. And I think that judging mindset seeps over and creates combative behavior and poor conversation.

Great book. The movie of it was pretty cool too, they did a good job. Not as good as the book though. Which is surprisingly as much about the future of class divisions as time travel itself. It's a very good (and quick) read, I highly recommend it.

Thanks for the link to it, nice post.

Yes we are still paying $91/mo, we are keeping any excess donations that aren't spent immediately for future server costs because the upgrades get super expensive over the next few levels of upgrades. We will probably upgrade here in a month or two, we're definitely using up almost all of the level we're at.

Also people need to realize that stuff like this is posted with the intent of debasing themselves and also the website. It's to muddy the waters of discussion on an otherwise rational site. They repeat low-brow memes enough and the site culture is eventually destroyed. The only antidote is for people to realize these attacks are occurring and to stop playing in to them in any way

Saidit is larger than ruqqus and is seeing more growth, despite the fervent commenting about ruqqus on reddit.

Look at the google search traffic for "saidit" vs ruqqus: https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?geo=US&q=ruqqus,%22saidit%22

Saidit has slow steady growth by word of mouth. Ruqqus has short-term hype that is already dying down. The google trends results reflect that. We see more visitors on a daily basis than ruqqus does, as our alexa rank shows that. We're doing fine.

But aside from that, it's not about splitting... people can use more than one website, as well they should so they can get a broad variety of information. It's just about giving people more options. More options is a good thing.

I heard an idea that every emotion maps to a muscle or set of muscles. We hold on to emotions with our mind, but also with our muscles. I cross my toes and tense my solar plexus when I'm anxious. Sometimes I find myself doing those things for no reason, and when I stop tensing those muscles I feel less anxious. I think our bodies all do this, but everyone has a different mapping of which emotions correspond to which muscles. I think that's also why some people find working out to be helpful for resetting your emotions.
