SaidIt BANNED ME for being LIBERAL!!! by VantaFount in MeanwhileOnReddit

[–]magnora7 17 insightful - 3 fun17 insightful - 2 fun18 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

Yup exactly. They spammed, and they upvoted themselves. That's two broken rules.

And then immediately posted on redditalternatives complaining about having their posts deleted, trying to portray themselves as a "liberal" to make saidit look right-wing, to make it look like voat, which it is very clearly not.

There has been a sustained manufacture of smear campaigns against saidit like this over the last few weeks, probably all by this same user. Luckily it seems like no one is really buying it anymore, as this is their 3rd time posting stuff to saidit and then using that (or our reaction to that) to smear saidit on redditalternatives over the last 2 weeks.

Seems like a huge waste of time to me, but I guess whoever is doing it has a lot of free time and nothing better to do lol

You would have the choice to remove it or not. If you decide you want the sub to have only pictures and someone posts a video, then you can remove that because it's off-topic, as the topic is pictures, not videos. The enforcement of this would be up to the mods of each sub.

I'm excited to release these 4 simple mod rules, d3rr and I, along with many members of the saidit community, think having reasonable limits on mods will make for a much more friendly and useful website in the long run, hopefully avoiding each sub being a little fiefdom filled with powermods like it is on reddit.

Good question. No it cannot be removed or else that mod would be breaking the site rules. Subs cannot "undo" saidit site rules in their own sub rules. Otherwise the rules are useless because anyone can circumvent them.

[Rant]I just really dislike human. by Snow in whatever

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

It is tough to endure attacks like this. The best victory is having the ability to ignore them and also wish for them to improve as a person. People lashing out like this desire a mean negative reaction, as it gives them a sense of momentary control over others. When their own lives are full of suffering, this can bring a moment of joy. I think this is why people do it.

You really just have to ignore the haters and be confident in yourself. There is some 30% of humanity that is almost unbelievable in their immoral and thoughtless behavior, but there is another 30% that are genuinely nice people who feel the same as you do.

And we have to realize that we are doing things wrong from other people's perspectives. Everyone is the hero in their own story and what we think is right someone else might see as reprehensible.

Just be confident in yourself. You don't need others to tell you how good or how bad you are, they are just passing thoughts. The more you build, the more haters there are. It's just a law of nature. More visibility means more haters.

Learning to mentally discard irrelevant information is a skill that can be hard to develop, but is necessary to deal with the haters. Emotional reactivity has no relationship to truth or value. What will most quickly bore someone going for an emotional reaction, is to ignore them.

I hope that's helpful. It's a skill I'm still honing.

You ever see stuff like that and have the wind just taken right out of you? You are way more involved than I am. How do you keep from throwing your hands up?

Oh yeah I feel that way a lot. Sometimes you can't help but throw your hands up and walk away. The key is to take a break for a bit (days, or weeks, or months) and then come back to it once you've properly digested the new information. Otherwise you can get permanent burnout if you force yourself, and that's how a lot of those people that are like 50 and don't give a shit at all, become that way.

We're running a marathon, pace yourself. Take breaks and do what you enjoy, there is no shame in it whatsoever, especially if you're doing it to give yourself time to digest new information. Put on your oxygen mask before you help others put on theirs, so to speak.

And with all the media coverage about how he killed him self and how guards should have known, likely he isn't dead and in Israel somewhere or on a private Island.

I agree with that. But that doesn't mean the guards weren't ALSO distracted at the time. They had to switch out the look-alike body that was found by emts and wheeled out, perhaps. They had to get him out at some point, but it seems like they found a body too

Yes I see what you are saying. The options though, are to 1) be open to DDOS attacks, which would certainly cripple the website once people realize it's open. or 2) Have a DDOS service that can view our through-traffic and the site remains up

so it's kind of lose/lose and the less bad option is to have our through traffic be available to cloudflare. There are so many more ways to link this though, like the IP backbone itself is known to be observed. So it's not like they don't have access to this anyway.

So I think all things considered we've done what's best for the site. I appreciate the concern though.

The only reason I think 2 is unlikely, is because in 2007 he got off for about the same as he's in now. So if I were him, I'd have some expectation that I could eventually get out.

Plus if he did it himself, he would've had to have had the means by which to do it, and in max security prisons they don't allow that, especially if he was on suicide watch a week earlier.
