YouTube is Still Enabling the Sexualization of Children (and It’s Being Monetized) by RavAshi in conspiracy

They're all about censoring political opinions, yet they let this stuff slide.

It's all about the money. They're getting paid by groups like Shareblue to remove certain types of political content. So they prioritize that. But removing these gross movies is a low priority because it doesn't really impact their bottom line (except in the long term, when it becomes a PR disaster, then they have to clean it up to avoid the loss of customers)

And then they engineer some bullshit raid on a marijuana user's house, and then they get to keep the equipment and society gets slightly worse and falls a little deeper in to the police state America keeps trying to become.

Ok well... maybe go light on the censorship because that's kind of the whole point of saidit.

And if you're going to make rules like that, make them equivalent across the board like "No editorialized titles" rather than "no antisemitism"

Truth is a matter of perspective... by Robin in frontpage

[–]magnora7 3 insightful - 1 funny3 insightful - 0 funny4 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

I'd say the truth is the 3d object and both the 2d projections, all taken together. There is a root truth that does not depend on perspective.

The problem is people think "Truth" is just one part of this whole, when it's really only one projection of a larger truth.

Weird because it loaded the thumbnail correctly. Maybe because it's a 1-image album? Or because it's a comment page rather than an album page?

That's a good idea in theory, but in practice it just leads to echo chambers in my experience. And if the trolls ever get control of the majority of the list (like a 51% attack), which they would be motivated to do, then it's all over and the site is permanently ruined. So it's kind of a dangerous idea imo

I agree with your diagnosis of the problem 100%. I am not sure about the solutions though. Basically you're calling for a ban (or flagging) on certain ideological positions. So we'd have to build a library of ideological positions that have been identified as propaganda, and then have people mark posts and comments as those categories as they come up. In the end it sounds like a straight-jacket kind of environment that makes free discussion difficult. I think #2, 3, 6, and 8 would devolve in to this. Similar arrangements have been attempted on many subreddits on reddit, and they typically lead to an extreme echo-chamber environment. But perhaps I am wrong.

I most like #7, I think it'd be smart for users to have a site-wide "reputation" in some way that is displayed alongside their username at all times.

I also kind of like what /r/conspiracy did, where they require a 2-sentence "submission statement" that is a comment explaining why they posted their original post.

Like you said, an ideal solution would be self-managing and wouldn't require mods or admins to constantly watch it and have to flag things. A system like that seems to lead to power-hungry mods, which leads to corruption and then eventually the site falls apart.

People just use a smaller variety of sites. And people stay with bad sites simply because that's where everyone else already is. Bad things remain popular simply because they're popular. People need to branch out more to make the internet "bigger". This is a problem of the users, but also a problem with how google prioritizes search results now as compared to 15 years ago

Climate change is a hoax, bro.

I mean it seems it might be exaggerated, and the source might not be humans, but the weather is really strange the last few years. The fact the climate has changed seems pretty undeniable. Even the OP article shows that, with "just 5 inches short of 30-year snowfall record"

Lol like senators will vote positively to limit their own terms...

I think it would be a good thing though. The 98% incumbent re-election rate is just stupid. So little actually changes every election cycle. It's no wonder we have things like the "deep state" when everything is so stagnant

You're arguing against 10 years ago. It's called "Climate change" not global warming. Because when the global temperature increases, it causes extreme weather on both sides, because it causes the jet stream to absorb more energy and become curved. So it juts down farther south (and north) than it used to, leading to extreme hots and colds, which we are seeing.

This whole "it's cold, therefore global warming is false" is a super outdated and tired argument...

Not saying I'm 100% on board with the climate change narrative, but lets at least make intelligent counter-arguments about it

Of course it's worth the shot, I just think that he stands zero chance because it's completely rigged against him, and I think he knows that. And again will just take the fall and not make any noise about the DNC rigging things. He's basically a limited hangout, a way for the system to give people the illusion they have a choice when they really do not. I wish it weren't so, but it increasingly seems that way.

This is why he didn't call out Hillary rigging the DNC. He wants another bite at the apple. I imagine it'll play out just like last time, same as it did with Ron Paul. Media boxes him out, DNC boxes him out, he loses even though he's the most popular candidate, then Hillary vs Trump then Trump wins again, and this country spends another 4 years stewing in the mess they've created for us to live in.

Or maybe something good will happen. Who knows. Things can't repeat the same patterns forever
