Welcome. You can now say all those 'bad' words, but hopefully only as a part of an insightful or articulate argument. It's a mixed bunch here. There are homosexuals, some people on the right, an actual tranny admin, 3 leftist shill-trolls, and a cat lady. The Trufemcells left for their own site, so your chances of being called a moid are low. Oh, and there's somewhat of an ongoing troll attack by many new accounts daily, associated with an 'LXXX' guy, who is disgruntled over something.

magnora7 is our leader and site owner, and also a regular participant.

This has been your $5 tour. Cheers.

What a coincidence that these types always manage to find so much free time for things like this. Must be hard for them to divert all that time and energy away from their jobs, families, and self-improvement projects lol

M7 believes this is their job.

m7 instead created the fuss by banning content for no apparent reason, resulting in a feud

[–]Node 8 insightful - 3 fun8 insightful - 2 fun9 insightful - 3 fun -  (12 children)

It's that 'no apparent reason' part that's the issue. Was there anything in the mod logs? Short of him doing a writeup on any actions that get contested, we kind of have the choice of staying on his site or leaving.

I see trolls and shills that should be banned (imo) but aren't. Some say users were banned who shouldn't have been. I haven't seen actual evidence that m7 is unfair, so I can't say much about the banned users.

I will say out of reddit, voat, poal, and saidit, m7 is the most likable and fair commenting site owner I've experienced so far. Not perfect, but a net positive. Would be nice for Jason to get his friend back, if only so he doesn't 'go rogue' over it.

Thanks.

I'm confused.

/u/diogenesjunior was banned but he can still PM.

He created what I recall/thought was /u/diogenesjunior2 for a short while with verified PMs that it was him and it was banned by M7, then DioJr deleted that account - and I chastised him again for deleting/burning evidence, etc.

Now there's another /u/diogenesjunior2 ? I didn't think it was possible to [delete] an account and then remake it.

I haven't heard from DioJr in over a week or maybe two. I thought I'd hear feedback on my Monday protest posts, but no. He also hasn't seemed very interested in being proactive in a campaign to restore his account. I suggested he draft up a thank you to the people who have supported him. He said he PMed 2 people. I suggested he draft up other things to say to the people. He didn't respond with much. I asked if I could repost our PMs for all to see. He said yes, but there's not been anything worthy of posting that hasn't already been shared.

I can't even tell why he's not saying much in PMs. He doesn't even sound like the guy I used to know. I can speculate: maybe he's guilty, maybe he's ashamed, maybe he doesn't give a shit, maybe he's pissed, maybe he's over SaidIt, maybe he's got better things to do, maybe something else. Maybe maybe maybe.

I've just been posting on ruqqus. the admins over there seem to be more transparent and honest.

Do you think they'd be willing to mirror SaidIt via the API? (Thought they may want to remove all the empty subs.)

[–]JasonCarswell 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Good to know. Thanks for the update.

[–]JasonCarswell 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Yes, mirror every post and comment, and/or decentralize and/or federate - all are good.

I haven't delved into their site nor culture yet. I'm trying to avoid taking on new social media. However, if they are more fair, open, and accountable with their social management systems AND if they mirrored everything from SaidIt, then on some levels little would be lost by migrating. On the other hand, unless everyone migrates then it's a whole new community with few familiar voices, and I simply don't have 2.5 more years to develop new bonds. Plus I need to start my own things soon.

Welcome back! (I've been reading your posts, wondering if you were actually back.)

[–]bobbobbybob 5 insightful - 2 fun5 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 2 fun -  (2 children)

more than just Jason's friend. diogenesjunior was a well liked user. He, like me, just were witnesses to theameliamay's arrival and general fuckery (now [deleted]) so i think that's why m7 was manipulated into banning him.

literally, this site had no dramas beyond lolbergs like /u/snow until tam arrived

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

I wasn't very active here for awhile, and missed that. I have seen the deletions by TAM.

[–]JasonCarswell 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

It takes 2 to tango for drama. TAM is not innocent and neither are you.

Literally FALSE There have been many other Reddit-refugee groups that have come, and some have stayed and some have gone, each with their own special brands of drama to some greater or lesser extent.

You've allegedly blocked me so you won't be able to read this.

I have nude photos of your Mama and she fugly. I'd prove it but pron not allowed.

and a cat lady.

Uh... I'm a cat guy.

[–]Node 3 insightful - 3 fun3 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 3 fun -  (4 children)

I had a cat who was immune to fleas, and only occasionally would emit a tiny squeak.

But I was more of a spider guy. Mexican Red Legs are a great pet. Super low maintenance, and really interesting. Watching them molt is a trip. Same with watching them eating a baby rat. Takes about 30 hours. Petable too, and nicely furry with pretty colors.

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

Gizmo squeaks when I pick him up. Pretty sure he ain't immune to fleas though. I imagine it was something with your cat's blood type.

I like spiders. Spiders are friends. I'll go out of my way to leave em be but I don't think I'd ever keep one as a pet.

Did you mean me as the cat lady or someone else? I just feel like I talk about my cat all the time.

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

Now that you say that, I remember hearing about Gizmo. I could not have told you who or where. What kind of cat is Gizmo, and what color?

https://aminoapps.com/c/reptiles/amp/item/mexican-red-knee-care/z6gj_gV4hwIBdE2ba0pDD3zzmNx7NBD3GEE

Here's a very nice pic, with a fairly fresh molt. If they get irritated, they use their hind legs to scrape off and 'fling' hairs off the top of their abdomen. Too much and they develop a bald patch back there. They're very docile, and fun to handle.

[–]AmericanMuskrat 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

Gizmo is a domestic shorthair, tuxedo coloration. There's several other photos in s/cats.

Wow, the females can live to 30, that's impressive. Are they affectionate or intelligent?

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

Nice whiskers!

They are not affectionate, and spend a lot of time doing nothing. But you can acclimate them to handling, and they do seem to like being gently stroked, and will walk around on your hands. Mine went up to almost three months before accepting food one time. That was the baby rat occasion. They usually eat crickets and such more regularly.

Welcome! SaidIt is way better than Reddit — because it ain't owned by the CCP!

You think censorship is a continuing problem here? TAM seems to have chilled out. Yeah the ironleft is still banned. Not sure I would have done that but it's hard to deny they can act dickish sometimes. You think they're really going to stop manipulating votes ever no matter what m7 does? Cause I'm not so sure.

I was back on reddit for this whole Aimee fiasco and it's so... Restrictive there.
