Saidit, what if we showed who voted on everything? by magnora7 in AskSaidIt

I'm down to try it out for a bit - but I think the ability for third parties to simply harvest the data/usernames might be too much of a risk.

We all know why we are here, after all.

Reddit because I posted about how Q was a LARP and was banned.

Twitter - I signed up for an account - signed into my brand new shiny account and found I was already banned... I guess my username is on a list, after eveything I've said on youtube.

I'm also shadowbanned on youtube apparently.

More importantly, what is the self-post rule change? Can't edit your own posts anymore?

Can the "funny" button function like a downvote? by StalwartJames in SaidIt

I meant, kind of highlighting a rebuttle to a post.

As in - if a comment is getting more insighfuls than what is "above" it in the chain (be that OP, or a comment) - it could be highlighted, as it's obviously a "really good reply".

In this vein - could a comment that is "more insightful" than something "above" it - be highlighted or something?

Everyone always gets on at me when I say "by giving mathematics and business the power to edit genomes, the following will happen: certain "designs" will become more popular than others - eventually the computer systems that designed these "popular configurations" - will be bought by other companies/countries. Eventually, these common configurations (think: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Elite membership levels, but applied to your very genome) - will be assisted by machines - these machines will draw up designs for genomes we've never thought of.

If Artificial Intelligence OR "Business Ethics/Strategy" are applied to this problem, we then lose the human species.

How you ask? The very nature of an evolving organism is that is grows and expands, changing as it does so.

Eventually the computer would realise that certain genes are good for ITS survival - things like acceptance of authority, submissiveness, even prosperity (as it will lead to the ability to buy more gene-edited kids).

As normal humans are out-classed in every single way, especially reproduction - what began as "let's help little baby Johnny not have disease X", will turn into "lets make sure no one gets disease X" will turn into "Well if you're not modified, you can't do this job as well as someone who is, I can't hire you".

Eventually being edited will be all but mandatory and the systems creating the templates/editing the genomes, should they ever become self-aware, will make the human race into puppets and eventually cast them aside.

Either Gene-editing that is passed on to the next generation OR AI, MUST be banned. If we partake of both, we are done. One of these MUST be made FULLY ILLEGAL or the human race is doomed. I'm talking death penalty for anyone found involved in it, world wide, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity or reason.

Which would you pick to ban?

Indeed, the first molecules of DNA were fabricated by a previous life form.

God yes, people can be as shitty as the credit card companies - it's just that they don't have the same amount of funding - or legal protection! lol

How cc companies can deplatform people by holding their brand hostage over things like paypal or patreon. Disgusting.
