Wait, for real? Holy crap. AUS and NZ are really going for it, aren't they?

Yikes.

I much preferred Norway's reaction to their mass shooting: They changed nothing, and said if they did change how they operate, that means the shooter wins.

That is nuts. I expected the chans to get banned in NZ, but voat in AUS is more far-reaching than I would've imagined. Authorities down there are being so reactionary, it's frightening, tbh. That whole "bastion of freedom" imagine NZ and AUS spent the last 50 years building is very quickly going down the toilet

We might move the server abroad, I'm not against the idea. It's just that I don't know if it actually would offer any more protection when both the mods running it are in the US.

Would that matter when both admins are still in the US?

Also we're working on developing a decentralized solution, so it can be peer-hosted, and thus never ever shut down.

Dallas TX, under a medium-sized independent server company that has no affiliation with any big server companies. If we ever have any trouble from them, we're technologically prepared to move to a new server at the drop of a hat.

If everyone acted this way, the intelligence agencies would collapse overnight.

We're all captive to a degree in our residing nations, unfortunately. The world has become a small place, in a lot of ways

My country used to be rated #1 for liberty. Now we are arresting people for posting things on the internet. by AschTheConjurer in censorship

I've never seen a country do a faster 180 than NZ did in response to this incident.

I much preferred the reaction to the Norway mass shooter. Norway didn't change anything. And specifically said they wouldn't, because doing so would mean the shooter would have what he wants.

That's what standing up for liberty and the common man looks like, imo.

Interesting, I haven't heard of Zeronet before, thanks for introducing me to it! I'll have to do some reading and see if it will fit our needs.

I noticed that when you search "Rothschilds" they have a little link to the Rothschilds wiki, explaining that it's no big deal, and not to get caught up in "disinformation"

Not a 4chan meme, a real organization. They hire Israeli college students for cheap.

Seriously, I hate their redesign so much. It's so non-functional. They basically did it to inject more ads and stuff faked as user content, to drive up profit margins. That's the main reason digg.com did their redesigns too.

Yeah they're deeply in bed with the Heritage Foundation, which is even worse. They're trying to bring back black-listing people and McCarthyism, and worse

I called out an obvious JIDF shill in a comment thread, and he complained to reddit admins who apparently dug 6 months back in to my history to find a minor infraction that broke the site rules, and banned me for it.

I was kind of dumbfounded. That's when I knew it was over for reddit.

Saidit isn't going to be a good alternative to reddit until this BULLSHIT limitation is removed. Reddit didn't originally even have this shitty limitation. Do it better, saidit. by nirv in AskSaidIt

The more trusted your user account becomes by getting voted on, the less the time limits will affect you. Perhaps we could loosen it a bit though.

Like other people pointed out, without this, someone not associated with the site could very easily flood the site with nonsense overnight, especially if they had an automated script.

But that said, I think it is maybe a bit too stringent. We'll look in to loosening it a bit for new users.

Voat literally praises the mass murder, repeatedly calling him a hero. 90% of voat upvotes in agreement. by magnora7 in MeanwhileOnVoat

Then sane comments that call out the nonsense are downvoted:

https://voat.co/v/whatever/3099068/17411920

Voat is overrun with shills, and white supremacists who can't tell they're surrounded by shills. Voat has a lot of free speech, but very little moral backbone despite all the grandstanding they do. I guess that's what happens when you let white supremecist neo-nazis literally take over your site and run it for their own benefit. They'll cheer on murder as long as the people killed have the skin color and religion they don't like.

Disgusting.

This is why voat can't be the next reddit. This is why we had to build saidit, to give people a 3rd option, because one didn't really exist. Free information for those who aren't completely lost to extremist ideology. Which is why this site used to be called antiextremes.com back in the day
