Announcing /s/saiditCleanup, where users can report other users who only posts ads or other spam by magnora7 in SaidIt

[–]magnora7[S] 5 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 0 fun6 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

The reporting system is useful, but this is an additional way for you all to point out people who are abusing saidit so they can be banned.

This sub is ONLY for pointing out ads and spammers. It is NOT for pointing out people who are breaking the pyramid of debate. It's just there to help keep saidit clean from the super-obvious trash that basically no one wants here. Like Viagra ads, and "Buy air conditioners in Perth, Australia" and stuff like that. They're welcome to post in /s/ads as always (which is the main thing taken off the front page) but 99% of the ad spammers don't care to do that even after you tell them to. We've only banned about 20 so far in all the 20 months we've been open now, so it's not a huge problem, but I just want to make sure the /new feed is good to read and not filled with garbage. So I made this sub as a way to let the community help more with that.

Thanks everyone

If you want to check out the swiss server for yourself, you can go to www.saidit.dev, but this is just for curiosity's sake. Things posted there will 100% be overwritten by the database replacements in a few days, so don't bother posting or doing anything there, it will be erased.

And if you're wondering, all the posts and comments there are bot-generated by software that came with the reddit open source software. They're kind of funny to read tbh. They're pretty bad in terms of being convincing conversationalists. I think they grab content from the front page of reddit.com at the moment you run the script and just randomly cut it up. But the script makes 50 bot users who all post a few to a dozen random posts and comments, to test out if all the software is working correctly. But what they say is so goofy sometimes, haha

Anyway, thought someone might get a kick out of that behind-the-scenes look while we finish setting things up

Reddit is banning systematically frog meme subs by papiersackratte in MeanwhileOnReddit

[–]magnora7 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Extremists on one side "Let's ban everything we disagree with"

Extremists on the other side "I'm tired of being banned, let's make them ban innocent things to make them look foolish" then proceeds to turn frenworld in to literal pro-nazi memes

Like I get where both sides are coming from... but both of them are not helping the situation. One is ban-happy with too much power, and the other is culture-jamming to fuck up the first group. But all the regular people are caught in this crossfire. This is what information warfare is, and it's destroying the internet.

Nice post. Hit the nail right on the head. These globe-conquerors ruin millions of lives for personal profit, and so many unknowingly (and knowingly) enable it. Thanks to the information age we live in, we're becoming very aware of how the wool was pulled over our eyes when it came to things like 9/11 and Iraq.

Switzerland is not in the EU, so no, saidit is not subject to Europe's speech restriction laws. This is one of the main reasons we chose Switzerland. They are neutral and independent and offer saidit the most freedom of any country, based on our research.

Yup this one is being memory holed, 100%. Same with the last Vertias video that exposed people bussing in paid actors to make rallies look bigger for the DNC during the 2016 presidential election. The mainstream media doesn't want anyone taking this seriously.

They'll say "it's out of context!" but it's 25 minutes of unbroken video, from what I understand.

Stuff like this is why we built saidit. This is a real thing that happened, and MSM wants to pretend it didn't happen. This is where saidit comes in.

People should take some time to be alone. by HibikiBlack in conspiracy

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

Agreed. If you aren't comfortable with yourself, as you truly are, then what hope do any of us have of being comfortable in this universe? Being alone and learning how to carefully ride the waves of thought and emotion that arise naturally from the mind is a skill that takes time to develop. But in our society this skill is often portrayed as something that everyone should innately know from birth, which is almost never true. Mastering one's own mind is perhaps the hardest skill of all. That's why people who have truly mastered this skill and teach others how, have entire religions devoted to them

On the one hand I think he has a point, but on the other hand talking about it too much (or in the wrong way) is one way to make a path straight toward it, so I'm conflicted about upvoting this. You know what I mean? Even this post itself is part of the escalation of the culture war in a way, you know?

I ended up upvoting though, I think it's better to have the discussion than to not have it.

Hey old, sorry about that. Looking at their post history, I caught about half of the flags and removed them. The report system works where I basically have to see the post myself to remove it, there's no "here are the flagged posts" section for admins (which is something maybe we should build) but instead I have to catch each flagged post in the wild. It's not the best system.

Anyway, this user is obviously an advertising spambot so I've removed them from the site. Thanks for the heads up. I do want to stay on top of this, but I can't respond to stuff while I'm sleeping and so on... we'll think about how to design a better system for this. Anyway, the user is now banned, thanks for the heads up.

Yes. It puts you and Saidit in a shitty spot.

One might even go so far as to say that this is the actual purpose of it. To help destroy saidit by hiding murder threats within seemingly innocent material. It's to be expected though, in this era of the internet. Information warfare is annoying, but I think we've got some pretty decent defenses.

Thanks! I banned that person too. This is helpful for you to identify the obvious ad spammers. I just made a sub called /s/saiditCleanup where people like yourself can now report ad spammers in a manner similar to the conversation we're having. There's been about 15 of them so far that have been banned. I've removed most of them that I've seen, but a few sneak through like the ones you pointed out. It's like weeding a garden, we just have to stay on top of it. Thanks for the help!

Oh that's a really good idea. Every button on the home screen could be a new book about how to build modern technology.

I almost want to send them a discrete-component computer like an old mac rather than an integrated circuit computer, so they'd have a better chance at repairing it and replicating the discrete components. But then you have to transport a power supply and way to generate power along with a desktop computer and monitor and keyboard, and then we're really pushing the limit of what "an object" is haha
