Jason. It's evidence. By your own admission.

It is proof of what will happen if we d Change to the point system.

This is folly. Let it go bro.

I doubt that this is accurate.

Abiotic oil has likely refilled the American sources. Strategic reserves.

You've already pointed out the evidence.

If you see a bunch of 1/10 votes then you know it either sucked or a group is trying to game the system. Knowing that much at least then we can determine ways to solve that. Not knowing may allow unkown problems to fester.

The we don't have to deal with 1/10 voting shills. There's no reason to consider solutions to this problem. I've never heard of any group effectively splicing this problem.

This is a problem that currently doesn't exist at SaidIt.

Why would we want to invite this obvious problem into the forum?

A shill would love to do that.

Getting access to the software would prove invaluable if some group wants to hack the system and find information about community members.

Since your argument proves too much

What does this even mean? How can anything be proven "too much"?

The synonym for "proves to much" is irrefutable.

SaidIt already has the same exact vulnerabilities, only different in the tallies.

?

If you see a bunch of 1/10 votes then you know it either sucked or a group is trying to game the system. Knowing that much at least then we can determine ways to solve that. Not knowing may allow unkown problems to fester.

These are contradictory statements.

There are obvious differences.

If not showing things to people is censorship, and censorship is unethical, then that means that any privacy of any kind is unethical – which it obviously isn't.

Wrong. Censorship is the supression of information.

Everything submitted to SaidIt is voluntarily added to the community by the individual who submitted it. The same principle applies to submitted comments.

This has nothing to do with privacy.

You seem to assume that censorship is a valid and ethical option.

Looking back on that debate I can see the problem-solution-reaction strategy at work.

You even submitted the "SaidIt is becoming an echo chamber" idea.

Once again you've managed to stir things up.

You have been working at chipping away at this forum for some time.

You had brought up the IMDb voting format and stated that it wasn't broken with it's ratings.

Your follow-up indicates that IMDb has shill vulnerabilities, and suggest that they are likely exploited.

Having acknowledged this; why would we want to expose SaidIt to these same voting vulnerabilities?

These vulnerabilities do not exist with the current system.

We need to remain advocates for maximally resilient submission, commenting, and voting structures.

"/s/IslamViolence: Islam is a violent religion" is the current title of this sub. I strongly object and offer some corrective measures. by JasonCarswell in IslamViolence

My man, my intent isn't to attack you on your values.

You know that we are both in agreement about an overwhelming majority of issues.

I'm close to certain that in a different set of circumstances you would be in agreement with me.

I'm guessing that this venom character intentionally created this sub to bait someone into going ballistic.

It worked... :-/

You are coming out of the gate swinging at a sub that doesn't have any submissions.

I also oppose lunatic subs, and hate mongering.

However, there are no statements or arguments to disagree with.

Hopefully, this makes sense.

I'm guessing that the staged outbreak will coincide with the release of the vaccine.

What type of libertarian are you? by 07user01 in Libertarianism

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

Libertarian means socialist in every country except for the US.

Rebranding this word is a propaganda tactic, and so-called American libertarians have been duped.

This sub was created 9 hours ago.

Is there an actual threat to taking this sub down?
Have any actual rules been broken?
Is this the SaidIt thought-police sub mob?

Did someone create this sub, and then forget to submit anything?

This has the feel of a botched problem-reaction-solution provocation?

Is anyone else fooled by this???
