Should Saidit be hosted in Norway or Switzerland? by magnora7 in AskSaidIt

I don't like Switzerland so here goes:

https://nordvpn.com/blog/surveillance-practices-in-switzerland-an-overview/ (2017)

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/sep/25/switzerland-votes-in-favour-of-greater-surveillance (2016, about that surveillance increase and the people of swiss wanting it)

Protonmail is based in Swiss because of the Privacy laws, which is something different. Basically something todo with your PMs and account login only. These privacy laws are not protecting your freespeech as it's used when you post/comment on saidit, it's public, like you can't claim privacy when you yell BOMB on a airplane and expect to get away with 'I said the following message is for my friend, you all could have ignored it'. For the use of saidit I would say it's a meh+, like nice to have but basically useless unless you use saidit as a PM service to conduct illegal activities and then it's not as setup as Protonmail so you're 'dun goofed' anyway.

Side note:

How do these 2 countries handle that the owners are not in their country and (probably) were not there for the contracts? I have no clue about this but I know for the infamous Swiss-banking thingie you need to be in Switzerland IIRC.

I wouldn't worry too much about article 13 as the countries themselves have to make the laws. Like in France the government actively pursuits pirates and in the Netherlands they don't.

So Kinda a side question, why not the Netherlands, aka the Internet hub of ~Western Europe~Edit: sorry, the WORLD? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amsterdam_Internet_Exchange https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Internet_exchange_points_by_size

Okay Germany wins by a little...

Issue regarding the pornographic rule by HorseMeat in SaidIt

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

Not to be sexist, but it is men who would complain about the lack of porn.

On the first point we are getting into a loop: read my previous posts about the nature (In my view) of saidit.

On the Second, still mods gotta see if it's legal, more users could also be coming here because porn is allowed and the community is small so illegal stuff is easy coming through (Mostly why 9000+ 4chan clones have failed and maybe 2 are around for a time worth mentioning).

Catering also means verifying stuff is even legal. If you cater food, you are also responsible when it's poisoned. This is a problem for all subjects, but I hope you can see how much more difficult it is with porn than with death?

That's were we disagree, The catering is too much hassle (with porn) while there are all dedicated sites for it. Catering to debate and information is hard enough.

I would say pornography also fits under the fun category too.

I would see saidit more as a Library for adults (we discus piracy to sexworker laws) but just not the images/videos (or audio for some) of porn. Do that somewhere else, you can discuss it, just not show it.

*also these are just my opinions.

Creating Christ [Podcast] by Mnemonic in Christianity

It's serious research about the creation of the Christ story.. like the whole Roman empire washing (pilatus) it's hands in innocence etc.

It's talks with researchers about the ehmm basically coming together of the new testament and the parralells it shows with how the roman Empire used to 'take over' other religions in a sneaky way.

It's not so much Christ myth (although it is abit according to the wikipedia definition, Jesus Christ is a rank/title, not a birth name) But they go about Yoshua one of the possible real names) but that the roman empire twisted his rebelion into something else.

The intro is always a bit of a puts sunglasses on goof, but the interviews are very nice. (the whole podcast is very good, just skip the intro for beginners, it's a media-remix he likes to do)

After your edit : 'so go there instead if you're interested in that type of content.'

Is pretty clear in my view.

But i was referring more to:

We're trying to create an environment that encourages thought-provoking discussion, like how reddit used to be 5+ years ago, when Aaron Swartz was still around.

Hmm maybe you forgot to read: https://saidit.net/s/SaidIt/comments/37r/welcome_to_saiditnet/ ?

Those two are in regards to my my own statements:

  1. Not what I said, not everywhere, IMHO plenty of dedicated places do excist however.
  2. That's a big issue, I don't know you, but I as Mod wouldn't like to check every porn link to see if it's even legal.

Hey since you're new: https://saidit.net/s/SaidIt/comments/37r/welcome_to_saiditnet/

In the footer of the site is a lot of other great stuff.

You can spank your monkey anywhere, crank the shaft anywere on the web even or oogle boobies on facebook! It's more of a problem when people, and they do, link to clearly illegal (or borderline illegal nobody knows the origin of) It's an easy way to send the feds on someone.

And again, if you read the introduction post you'll get a clearer picture of saidit and that it's Not just a reddit clone, one of those differences is the porn rule.

Former Mozilla exec: Google has sabotaged Firefox for years by d3rr in Internet

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

He revealed that both Firefox and Edge were superior when loading YouTube content when compared to Chrome, and in order to counteract this performance issue, Google switched to using a JavaScript library for YouTube that they knew wasn't supported by Firefox

I Hate it that A LOT of sites now use google-apis thingies. Even The Dutch Public network on the internet switched to that, and because they have some weird drm system in place wince march 1st I can watch public access anymore unless I enable drm and allow google imported js to be run.

  1. Had! The manifestation of Nuit.

  2. The unveiling of the company of heaven.

  3. Every man and every woman is a star.

  4. Every number is infinite; there is no difference.

This says the same thing as the quote imho, as to put into context the dreaded:

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
