I mean posting from wiki leaks itself is obviously better than a place called "rumor mill"? Is that not obvious?

Look, if you obey the rules, you're more than welcome. If you create a place of hatred, then you're gone. It's super simple, and if you can't handle that very basic approach then why do we need you here?

If that's your interpretation of what was said, I suggest you re-read our conversation.

Well that's great and convenient for you, but not so great for everyone else who has to read the lower-quality source. Life isn't just about what you want :) This is a community

I play site admin. And this site is not becoming voat, nor is it going to become reddit. That's the entire point of the site. It's not a complete free-for-all that turns in to a hate-fest, that's what ruined voat. If that bothers you, then maybe this site isn't the best fit. This isn't a rudderless boat, so to speak.

Good points. And also if it's not insightful or fun, why do we even want it on saidit?

The people who are willing to moderate for free tend to be power trippers who relish the opportunity to exercise that power.

It's an entire sub based entirely around the lowest level of the pyramid of debate: Low-information hatred

This isn't voat. They're openly hateful racists, wishing death on others and dehumanizing them. They're not "goofballs". We have to draw the line somewhere, or we will just become voat.

Yeah exactly. I would MUCH rather grow slowly with quality users, than quickly with low-quality users.

If I want to foster a community of hate against niggers with other like minded individuals then why can't I?

There's this place you would probably like, called www.voat.co. You should go there, and your wishes can come true. Just leave the rest of us to this "stupid" site. Goodbye!

No there's no support for that feature in the codebase. The best way is to add flair to the post title to do any corrections, that's usually what's done on reddit. That way nothing is removed, only more added to further explain or clarify

I'm just trying to communicate that the MDE community is a positive, peaceful community that shares dissident right materials in humorous way.

Alright, I'm going to hold you to that. If that's honestly the intent, then you all are more than welcome.

The more mde respects the pyramid of debate, the better our relationship will be. We built saidit to have a site to browse that isn't hate-filled like voat, so I hope in a month saidit mde won't just look like the front page of voat. Aka tons of low-information memes designed to stir up hate. We will take action to avoid becoming voat if need be.

I look forward to seeing the positive, thoughtful, peaceful content that mde will contribute to saidit. We can always use more of that. All the best to you and the new mde sub!

I think having a higher quality source is more important than keeping track of where you personally saw the information, just my 2 cents

Anarcho-capitalism is just neo-conservatives and neo-liberals role-playing as anarchists to try and win people over.

It's the type least compatible with all the other types of anarchism, from what I see. Because it basically calls for what the US has now, aka crony capitalism where big money can do whatever it wants. "Anarchy" where big capital rules over everything like it does now isn't really anarchism, imo.

Issue regarding the pornographic rule by HorseMeat in SaidIt

[–]magnora7 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Sure! Good idea.

Here's my favorite one I've found from each country so far:

https://oneprovider.com/dedicated-servers/oslo-norway

$46 for 8GB RAM

https://my.alpinedc.ch/index.php?/cart/&step=3

$30/mo for 4GB RAM

I think switzerland is like "home base" because they all know their data and money is safe there. But I don't think it's compromised in the sense of data security. And I think their entire business model for the country is based on not compromising security, and I think they know if they start breaking that people will lose faith. Like everyone is losing faith in NZ with their sudden law changes after the shooting. Switzerland has a long track record of not changing their airtight data-security laws. Norway does too, but not as deeply perhaps. It's probably a coin flip tbh. Switzerland just sounds more secure too, I think the users would find a swiss server more impressive than a norway one, even though they're the same cost.

Anyway, tell me what you think of those specific companies I linked to.

Yeah it's a sub based entirely on the lowest level of the pyramid (low-information hatred) so we decided it's not worth allowing on saidit.

Yeah report bad posts and comments, selecting the 'dragging down discussion on the pyramid of debate' option on the window that pops up. That way they're flagged for mods to easily see. They won't always be removed though, it's just a flagging system to help mods and admins spot it quickly, and to give an opinion that you agree it violates the pyramid of debate.

Well the thing is people don't like being told how to act. So the more you go "you all have to act like X" you get 20% who agree, then 20% who go "fuck that, no one tells me what to do, I'm going to do the opposite!" so in the end it's hard to tell if any real progress is made. The latter is called the "Backfire effect" in psychology.

This is also one reason I'm against having tons of rules, because it apparently just pisses everyone off and doesn't actually better define the culture of the site, and kind of just actually acts like a wedge. I think encouraging positivity is a more useful tool to the end of creating a good site culture, than trying to define ever-narrowing rules which just anger people who then feel attacked by those rules.

It's much easier to just group everything under the pyramid of debate, and give individual warnings as specific scenarios arrive, then do a '3 strikes you're out' system. Keeping everything low-pressure like this makes a better community, then trying to play "culture cop". If you see what I mean.

Voat used to have this thing called "protect voat" and it was basically a mob that descended on anyone they didn't like. It was one of the things that was supposed to stop the cultural backslide problem, but only served to intensify it. I try and learn from their mistakes.

This stuff is super tricky. I think it's one of those things where "less is more". And "If you do everything right, they won't know you've done anything at all". Both those quotes often come to mind when administrating or moderating. I haven't found a better technique, personally. But I do appreciate the PSA, everything said. The culture has to hold itself up, at the end of the day. But I think it works best by example, rather than by telling people how to act.

Anyway, that's kind of my take on this whole thing, because it is insanely complex and subtle to make it work right. So that's what I've figured out so far, hope that gives you food for thought.

But with how Sweden and the surrounding area is having problems, I fear Norway might have problems as well. But yes I probably would trust norway slightly more, but Switzerland has a proven track record of server security/privacy as well. The elite from across the world hide their data and money there for a reason.
