Former Hillary Adviser: "Hillary will run again. She will not allow this humiliating loss at the hands of an amateur to end the story of her career.” by useless_aether in NotTheOnion

Seems like she's never really been told "no" on anything seriously significant before and it's hard for her to accept. Like many people of great success, their life has been a long string of wins, and their ego can't handle a loss so they double down.

Yeah that's the worst part, is she's apparently going to do it out of personal spite, rather than to try and better the country.

Funny how many capitalists see socialism as a route to authoritarianism.
And many socialists similarly see capitalism as a route to authoritarianism.
The problem is not the capitalism or socialism. The problem is the authoritarianism!

Saidit's voting system: Why it's awesome and how to use it by magnora7 in SaidIt

I appreciate you taking the time to lay out your argument so clearly. You make a good point about being able to vote both... so basically you think in people's desire to add more points to something they like that isn't funny, they'll use the funny vote to promote it more? I see what you mean now.
On the one hand that's kind of also laughing at content they're trying to seriously promote, so I don't know if people would do that. Plus anyone truly dedicated to gaming the vote system can just switch between multiple accounts, so I'm not sure how much it's actually preventing in reality.
We put a lot of work in to coding the functionality of being able to vote both. It'd be a real shame to undo all that, plus it's one of the unique features to saidit.
What if we met in the middle? What if insightful is +2, funny +1, but then if you vote both it's still just +2 total, but it gives +1 to the insightful category and +1 to the funny category? This way it doesn't give additional points, but still gives the diversity of indication of being able to vote multiple ways. That way it doesn't encourage voting funny for visibility, but the complexity of the voting system is still maintained.
I think we would definitely consider a system like this, it makes a lot of sense.

Yeah? Of course some will abuse it, but most won't and it'll still be a useful thing

The home page is home. All and home are similar, but home has a few things removed, like /s/ads. Subscribed is your subscribed subs.
Hope that clears things up. It's not too complicated. We might make subscribed the home page one day, when saidit has enough content to warrant that.
We've been thinking of adding the ability to change your default home page to subscribed in you user preferences. Sounds like this would solve your issue. We'll bump that up on our priority list.
