This site used to be called antiextremes.com way back in the day.

This named referring to the two extremes of reddit and voat. Our mission goal is to avoid becoming either of those sites, but instead provide a place for all viewpoints with reasonable discussion.

The best way to avoid becoming reddit is to limit censorship, even in subsaidits.

It's fine to lock comments or posts, but nothing should ever be deleted, or just wiped out as if it were never there. Disabling links from a post is obviously limiting harm, but the words never should be erased. No one should be erased. No thoughts are so dangerous that they need to be hidden.

Anything illegal in USA is fair game for moderation or removal for sure. Beyond that, mag has some highfalutin ideals which everyone is supposed to strive for.

highfalutin ideals which everyone is supposed to strive for.

These are conservative principles/values based on ideas from the age of the enlightenment. Ideas that the Constitution is predicated upon.

It's a tragedy that they appear "highfalutin" in 2019.

Free speech is a conservative value, and a fundamental human right.

Speak English or fuck off commie.

You're going to get kicked out of the US, for failing 8th grade social studies.

Fuck off with your socialist studies, commie.

Don't need your help, oh noble child grooming homostatual.

I don't think it's intentional. I think that people that get silenced/banned from those platforms will naturally gravitate towards the new ones and thus they become filled with the people that were cast out.

I don't know much about voat but I know reddit is shithole echo chamber of farts.

Let's let it not become like reddit, which was its original intention. Amen.

"do your part".

What do you mean? Sneak into moderation to enforce an ever more extreme liberal ideology?

What exactly is "doing your part". be straight up about it, please.

[–]VantaFount 6 insightful - 1 fun6 insightful - 0 fun7 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

From my perspective "Doing your part" would mainly consist of reporting activity that violates the policies of Saidit, and refusing to participate in obvious bait topics and threads.

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

In my opinion "doing your part" would simply mean posting things from more than one perspective or angle and avoiding all forms of extremism.

Downvote and report bigotry?

I didn't think I needed to be so explicit with such an obvious concept.

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

wrong site. No downvotes here.

and what is bigotry? Some leftist nonsense that declares all speech that does not comply with whatever is the white hating fashion ?

on this site, yes, you do need to be explicit. You need to define your terms, explain them, not rely on circle jerk trends to enforce some evolving dogma, but actually bring it into the light, discuss it. Perhaps be wrong.

hive of racism and bigotry


You can't just say nigger and use ad hominems like it is your first language here. The pyramid of debate should be followed.

Conde Nast?

It's one of Reddit's parent companies.

actually the owner of reddit now is the Newhouse family (descendants of Samuel Newhouse), through their Advance Publications company
