From the sounds of it, it kind of seems like he's just sick of the community. Which is understandable the site will never become main stream as the whole site right now is jut a bigotry circlejerk.

What's the worst-designed software you've had the displeasure of using? by pitterpatterwater in AskSaidIt

[–]renlok 4 insightful - 1 funny4 insightful - 0 funny5 insightful - 1 funny -  (0 children)

The worst stuff I've ever used has always been propriety software on stuff like smart tv's. It is almost always terrible and I assume usually designed by a blind person.

Fluoride Officially Classified As A Neurotoxin In Same Category as Lead, Arsenic, Mercury, In World’s Oldest and Most Prestigious Medical Journal, The Lancet by magnora7 in science

That's such a bullshit clickbait title. It's well established that fluoride can be neurotoxic at high enough concentrations but the study that this article is indirectly referencing is a study by chinese researchers that concluded:

It in no way states it's on the same level of toxicity as lead, arsnic or murcury.

Is there any ETA on in-browser crypto mining? by pitterpatterwater in SaidIt

These browser based miners are terrible they are very inefficient at the moment so the pay outs are crazy low. I run a pretty active site and tried one out for a a few weeks in the end it brought about 1 cent worth of the cryptocoin.
