I saw this about a week ago and wasn’t sure if I was either just lacking sleep and seeing things, or running into a honeypot. I’m glad neither, because I missed that old website that started with an ‘R’. The one we must not speak of lol.

What about controversial topics? For example, /r/hookers on Reddit was banned, even though no porn was allowed. Would a forum like that be allowed here?

I didn't post much in /r/hookers, but I do post in /r/sexworkers, which is still up for the time being. I'd like to direct /r/sexworkers here, out of fear that reddit will ban them too at some point. I'd also like to revive /r/hookers (which was more on the client side, than the provider side).

The topics here will give you an idea of the likely content of both forums:

Thanks in advance for your consideration!

Basically, as long as it's not going to cause legal trouble to saidit, it's fine

Thanks! The problem is that it's hard to say whether it will cause legal trouble. Congress recently passed regulations called FOSTA/SESTA which create an exception to Section 230 that means website publishers would be responsible if third parties are found to be posting ads for prostitution — including consensual sex work — on their platforms. You can read more about it here:

Reddit closed a bunch of sex work related subreddits as a result, although they weren't especially consistent about it. They closed /r/hookers and /r/escorts, but /r/sexworkers and /r/sexworkersonly are still up. However, none of them allowed advertising. (In my opinion, Reddit closed /r/hookers and /r/escorts because they emphasized the client side, whereas /r/sexworkers /r/sexworkersonly emphasize the provider side).

IMHO, FOSTA/SESTA will eventually be struck down in the courts as an unconstitutional infringement on the first amendment. However, it may take a while for that to play out in the courts. Until then, there's legal uncertainty around the issue.

Interestingly, /r/asktransgender probably still has dudes giving hormone pills to minors.

Thanks for this, nice work

I don't intend on breaking the rules for any particular reason, for good, bad, or mischievous giggles, but I am curious about the process and what happens. I would expect that terrible stuff (porn, child porn, drug sales, gun sales, etc) would be deleted upon discovery, logically. But what about the grey area. Do folks get to re-edit their work, discussions and debates occur, warnings given, strikes, limits, etc?

I'm new to voting forums so I'm reading up here and elsewheres.

We give warnings unless you're doing something obviously bad. Odds are you'll never interact with this system.

Can I make random comments in random threads that make little or no sense? ;)

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

As long as you are at least trying to make them make sense ;)

    I get an error trying to create an account

    [–]magnora7[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

    It works for me, you might be trying to do it too fast, since you already have an account

    [–]newbieforever2016 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

    It did work but gave me an error message making me suspect that it did not. Thanks

    What's your policy on doxxing and death threats?

    [–]d3rr 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

    I think we should post the sub creation restrictions somewhere... multiple people have asked about it.

    i see! sweet.

    Also, do you have a mechanism for importing a sub-reddit into said-it?

    [–]magnora7[S] 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

    We've been thinking of developing something like this, that would take the top 5 posts from a subreddit for the day and post them to saidit. But I suppose we could also develop the ability to import a whole subreddit, I hadn't thought of that before.

    Is that something you would use.

    [–]cat-gun 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

    It would be ideal if there were a script that could regenerate a closed subreddit from Google's Bigquery:

    https://www.reddit.com/r/DataHoarder/comments/869s3e/archives_of_banned_subreddits/dw5gqjr/?st=jhsi6siy&sh=78de0861

    I would use it to regenerate the /r/hookers and some of the other sex work-related subreddits.

    I've read these rules and by no means do i feel i broke any of them I'll see you all soon

    i still dont understand about pyramid

    [–]magnora7[S] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

    If you bring discussion up to higher levels on the pyramid, you're valued. If you consistently bring it down, then you'll get banned. Let me know if there's anything else I can clarify
