It's been falling since after the 2016 election. Which to me just shows how many political agendas were being pushed through it.

I talk about the pyramid of debate frequently, and have seen other users do so as well to help reinforce visibility, but perhaps you're correct that it could use more visibility. I think we might automatically send a PM to every new user account that showcases the pyramid of debate and explains it.

I agree with everything you said, you're a very reasonable guy! I'm glad we see eye to eye now. Cheers

But I bet he would be very happy at what we've done with saidit. I hope so, anyway.

Is Saidit being overrun by trolls and easily manipulated folks who think "AOC stay home bitch", or "is saidit cool with everyone except libtards"? WTF is going on. LOL Lots of petty, small minded folks showing up here lately. Are we just getting all the reddit rejects now?! by EndlessSunflowers in SaidIt

If 2 encounters out of 5000 users is enough to make you have a meltdown, you're going to need to develop thicker skin. We simply cannot control things to that level. I did issue a warning for the AOC title, calling her "a bitch" is the bottom of the pyramid of debate. It's being addressed. Comments and posts like that should be reported, ideally.

You gotta be patient. People are going to disagree. People have been warned about their level-dragging on the pyramid of debate in the instances you speak of. I don't know what else I can do other than to just start banning people willy-nilly at the first sight of being slightly mean, and then this site is no longer a community resource but a dictatorship, and I don't think anyone wants that. I certainly don't.

We're applying the pyramid of debate, with a kind of "3 strikes you're out" type of approach. The community will never be flawless, it will be an ever-evolving process. We all have to try our best to raise the level of discourse, and the more we do, the more the emotional vitriol will stand out like a sore thumb, and the more easy it will be to remove it.

Be patient, be kind, be forgiving, and remember the pyramid of debate. It'll be ok. Some of the reddit rejects are nice people :) We just have to give time for things to filter out and for people to show their true colors, and apply the pyramid of debate. It will never be perfect, but will always be improving. That I can promise you.

"It is better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all"

There's a lot of good arguments against having a kid, and the OP is not one of them, imo. That's an argument out of fear.

I never claimed to be a bastion of purity

Well saidit does, and it's part of the site rules to obey the pyramid of debate.

all the support for her comes from a good place and from good people - but she's a pied piper.

Now THAT is a much more useful editorialization than "LOL stay home bitch". Had you posted that info to the title instead of a rude insult we wouldn't be having this discussion right now.

I'm not saying "don't have an opinion". I am saying "state your opinion in a way that is on the higher levels of the pyramid of debate"

Do you see what I mean? It's just a decorum thing, it has nothing to do with your actual opinions. You're free to say whatever opinions you like. But respectfully, and in an informational manner. You'll find you convince more people that way anyways.

I completely agree with you 100%. But you have to admit calling a famous politician a bitch in the title is just kind of asking for low-brow angry responses, ya know? Be the elevated discussion you want others to exhibit

We aren't comparing ourselves to the low standards of "the internet", that's the whole point. You're allowed your opinion, just maybe not in a rude word in the title? Can you manage that? We take the pyramid of debate seriously, and if you're constantly dragging stuff downward on the pyramid things won't last very long here.

You're free to disagree, but don't initiate name calling. Please respect the pyramid of debate.

Pyramid of debate, please respect it. It's okay to disagree, don't all each other names. Maybe don't editorialize your titles so heavily too... Calling a politician a bitch in the title is pretty low on the pyramid of debate.
