Saidit is worse than reddit with censorship. by Troll in SaidIt

The irony of someone who supports physical_removal, crying about having their sub removed. It's your own ideology come to life! You should therefore support my actions. But that irony aside...

There has been plenty of discussion about why, ad nauseum.

"didn't feel like talking to a guy like you."

Pretty certain I never said anything like that.

Physical removal is removed for advocating violence ("Let's throw gays and communists out of helicopters, so to speak." being a central meme), and coontown is also removed for advocating violence. ("Black people are just the worst and shouldn't exist, and we should probably hang them" being a central meme)

You seem more upset you can't set up little mod fiefdoms than you actually are upset about your information being limited.

The issue has been explained to you. The community doesn't really support you. What are you even trying to accomplish here? If you want to hate black people and gays so bad that you need to make a whole sub about it, just go to voat. Seriously.

We have banned 5 subs in 16 months, so this idea it's "worse than reddit" in terms of censorship is just laughable.

VOAT goats urged not to use Saidit: The leftist censorship shithole by VantaFount in MeanwhileOnVoat

Extremism hates non-extremism, no surprise there. Just for the record, saidit has banned literally 5 people total in 16 months out of 8,000 users, other than obvious ad spammers who never respond. So this idea it's "even worse than reddit" in terms of censorship is just silly.

Meanwhile they have "ProtectVoat" brigades that will censor you to -20 if you say anything out of line with their site culture, ensuring you never get to use your downvotes yourself, because it requires a user score of 100 to be able to use.

The post on voat is basically propaganda, to beg people to keep them from leaving the extremist echo-chamber they've created, imo. Not surprising at all. Let's just ignore them, and keep making this place better and better. The best way to progress forward is to build something so good that it makes the old ways obsolete.

I guess we will have to update this canary if/when we move the servers to Switzerland or Norway. — May 8, 2019 — Banned subs now have messages displaying exactly why, Pyramid of Debate updated to explicitly include "no advocating violence", "share" button removed from under every link by magnora7 in SaidIt

Coming soon:

  1. Updating the 'hot' algorithm to be about 35% faster so the front page changes more frequently now that we have more content.

  2. "Block user" capability, to completely remove a user and their posts and comments from appearing on your view of the site. Currently users can be blocked from private messages, but nothing else.

  3. "Do not show sub CSS" checkbox on the right bar of every sub. Currently it can only be disabled for all subs at once in your user preferences.

I agree. I used to browse /r/all all the time, but now it's just untenable. There are a handful of good subreddits left, and if you only read those it can be OK, but man you're right it's 99% garbage. I feel like I'm conversing with a crowd of children when I use that site. Every once in a blue moon you have a logical discussion with someone, but it's definitely the exception rather than the rule on reddit these days.

I see your account is 2 hours old, so welcome to saidit! Here's some more stuff about the site if you want to learn more about how saidit works and how it differs from reddit:

Neither openly advocate violence

I did that because I was informed it was a sub that exists mainly to advocate physical violence.

PSA: We all fell for an obvious lie. by wizzwizz4 in SaidIt

The comments did end up getting to the truth, did they not? That's how social media systems usually work. You cannot honestly expect main posts to be factually correct all the time. Hell, just the fact we're talking about actual legislation at all, rather than just stupid memes with zero citations, is a big step forward imo. That's already a huge improvement over voat and reddit.

That said I do appreciate your striving for factual accuracy, because that is very important too, without a doubt. But don't let perfect be the enemy of good, so to speak.

It's researched, I didn't just listen to one person. The sub is literally based on the idea of throwing communists and gays out of helicopters.
