Jewish anti-Zionist protest being violently repressed by the Israeli police. by [deleted] in conspiracy

[–]magnora7 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Polls show around 40% of American Jews disagree with the ideology of Zionism, which in modern day has basically become the ideology of Israeli nationalistic expansionism.

This is the dirty secret, Zionism was popularized by the Rothschilds in the 1860s in order to acquire the land of Israel from the British Government after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, the Balfour Declaration is a 1-page historical document that makes this clear. Many Jewish people see this Zionism movement as pushed by the Rothschild et all as functionally hijacking actual Judaism by pretending to spearhead it for power-seeking reasons.

Yes, exactly. Users who consistently drag the quality of discussion downward (especially if they seem to be doing it intentionally) should be banned, as per the site rules. And then creating alternate accounts to bypass bans is also not allowed.

I agree with Muskrat that joke accounts should be left alone, but when they spam disgusting things repeatedly, that's just having the purpose of dragging the quality downward. Especially if it's clearly one account repeatedly ban evading over and over. Thanks for the help guys.

It's not a "fix the issue" thing, you have to build an entirely new house and people don't have money for that. It's cheaper to buy electricity and AC than to fix the issues, which is a big part of why they're not fixed in the first place

Yeah but the houses were built for that back then. Now they're not built that way so without ac they get super hot.

Black shingles don't make sense, for example. I measured my roof surface at 167F the other day. White adobe makes so much more sense in this heat, but instead people rely on AC to overcome design flaws that trap heat

That's a fair point. But I think the desire to be consumed by the electronic entertainment comes from a "work hard, play hard" kind of attitude. Where sitting around doing nothing is seen as not okay, and is "wasted" time. This fear of wasted time comes from a work-obsessed culture, taught to be good slaves for those who wish to extract the value of their labor. If that mentality didn't exist, I'm not sure the electronic entertainment obsession would exist as fully as it does today

Has Saidit been getting stupider in the last few months? by trident765 in nonmorons

There is a fair amount of bot and shill activity to dilute the quality of text forums on the internet. This is also causing the reasonable people to abandon those forums, which further increases the concentration of noise. They are intentionally gaming the signal-to-noise ratio of the internet to destroy its usefulness as a communication medium.

This happened with books too when the printing press was invented. Too much truth was getting out to too many people, so authorities started making lots of crap books with false information to make people distrust the information gained from books, and to safeguard their secrets by spreading lots of conflicting information.

Today's internet has become an automated and paid version of that. And as a person who remembers the promise of the internet in the 90s it makes me very sad.

In Texas I'm pretty sure they'd just cut off the utilities for all these people. Which would be life-threatening in the summer heat.

If they have good weather, and the courts see what is happening and work with the people, there may be another outcome.

But this is just another result of inflation caused by central bank interest rates being so extremely low for so long. Europe and the US and so many other countries are experiencing inflation from their "covid stimulus" money printing.

Lol more like both sides have full checkmarks. They're both definitely obsessed with national security, not sure if you lived through the 9/11 era but that was all that was talked about for decades. They both think our military can stomp anyone. They're both cheating elections (look at gerrymandering, and how lobbying and 'advisors' have infiltrated our democracy).

This "the republicans will save you" rhetoric is basically a "bad cop, good cop" gambit to save the system at this point, but the parties keep switching who is the good cop and who is the bad cop about every 15 years. Whoever has power ends up being the bad cop, because the system is so thoroughly compromised by special interests.

Nice video. The OP has made "ground effect" flight vehicles before, but this is the first "ram effect" where the lift is generated by a pool of high pressure air under the entire craft, which requires a big flat body so a pool air can get trapped. I think the video you posted, while cool, is just a ground effect vehicle, which is related but not exactly the same.

The fact it's so hard to come up with a single name is part of the problem... the media doesn't really focus on people actually doing good in the world.

Often, anyone who takes a moral stand within the current culture of corruption is only able to do so once, then they are ostracized or worse. Our corporate and media systems filter those people out, because morals and having a backbone is goes against the drive to maximize profit and keep order for the existing order.

Newscasters get fired for speaking the truth, amazon workers get fired for unionizing so they can have pee breaks, intelligence agencies tried to get MLK Jr to kill himself and he was later assassinated... and nowadays someone like MLK Jr wouldn't even get air time. Where is today's MLK Jr? Where is today's JFK?

Instead if we listen to the media, we're meant to look up to people like football players, or fictional superheros, or greedy billionaires. Where are the real heros? And do most people care? Most people seem content to live in a fictional world, while their real world gets worse and worse. They avoid discomfort and thus the uncomfortable problems never get addressed.

Glad you see what I'm saying. 5 years ago the cat was out of the bag, just look at my most popular post on reddit ever: https://old.reddit.com/r/conspiracy/comments/5vn4k3/forbescom_reddit_is_being_manipulated_by_big/

But it's taking time for everyone to see how widespread it is, and how many companies and governments are all doing it. It's so cheap compared to traditional advertising, they'd be financially irresponsible not to!

The list of general motivations may be short, but in specific there are many ways to accomplish this goal of destabilizing a site. Like if an admin publicly says in a moment of frustration "x really annoys me but it's not against the rules so I guess I'll have to ignore it" then the attackers will double down on making sure x hits the front page every day. If an admin says to the community "They're DDOSing us bad and it's making us go offline" then they know to double down on the DDOS attacks. And so on, and so on. That's what I mean by "ideas and new motivations". If they know what's working, or where our weak points are, then it just emboldens them. So admins have to be quiet about it to protect the website and the users of the website, but as a side effect it keeps those same users in the dark about what's actually happening.

Overall saidit has done pretty well at dealing with this, compared to sites like ruqqus, voat, and poal. We've still had our fair share of turmoil too, but unlike them we're still standing strong.

Yes I agree most people don't realize how common this problem is. And that very lack of public awareness is itself a problem.

4chan is another forum that comes to mind as knowing that there's a high presence of fake posts and glowie posts and so on. I think most people using forums know it goes on to some degree, but they feel they don't have definitive proof of how widespread it is. I guess most internet users would think it's 5% non-organic posts and comments, when in reality it might be 50%.

Most forums' admins and mods are in active denial about this to their users and often themselves, because they want the forum to appear organic so they can attract new users. They want to believe it's all real, because that makes the work worth it. So most new forums like ruqqus, voat, poal, etc all get swamped by bad actors since they have no system to root them out, and then later have to develop a defense mechanism against it (usually too late) which itself creates backlash from the community. Public backlash that the attackers amplify as much as possible. Both the attacks themselves and the public backlash from the bans are a source of instability for the forum itself and the userbase. Ruqqus, voat, and poal all failed because of this exact same development arc. The attackers fracture and infiltrate the community and admin group so badly that the admins give up and everyone quits out of exhaustion and frustration. So taking all this in to account, it's obvious why a typical admin of a typical forum would be motivated to delete all attacks as well as any discussion of attackers. So that's what 95% of forums do. And the forums that don't, often just instead let it take over the whole forum.

Also admins don't want to show any public weakness to attackers, or else attackers might get ideas and new motivations. So basically most admins delete all mentions of it ever, and also never tell anyone details of what's going on for security reasons (and to keep the website looking nice for new users) so the users remain in the dark about what's really happening.

Part of why the saidit community has awareness of it, is because on saidit we allow information about it to exist publicly which creates awareness. Most forums (hackernews, reddit, twitter, GLP, etc) erase all information regarding attackers to remove it from the forum and ban anyone mentioning the attackers or any drama related to it. They 100% remove both the attacks themselves as well as the "the attackers were banned" posts in reaction to it. They basically kill all discussion about it, and would certainly never allow such a thing on the front page, and this is how they maintain the appearance of harmony... and for some forums that have a narrow focus like hackernews, it works. Because this drama is "off topic". On saidit we allow people to air their grievances, as long as they obey the rules, which actually brings light to this sort of activity. This creates awareness. And also most people here on saidit have been banned from reddit at some point, so they're well aware how "curated" of an environment it is because they've run against it firsthand.

Lastly, from a psychological perspective I think most people don't realize how advanced bots are until they see a sub like www.reddit.com/r/GPT3 and see how good the bots have become. Or when they run in to an actual shill group that is undeniably obvious, which is honestly pretty rare if you don't have access to the moderator or admin side of things. Which is another reason a bit of public airing of laundry from time to time is good (as long as it doesn't take over the forum).

Anyway, after some thought, that's my take on the issue. What do you think about it?

Alright I think I got thumbnails ironed out. Basically the automated restarts to the thumbnail system weren't actually happening because of a bug in the reset script that made it incompatible with the scheduling software (it used relative file locations and the scheduling software needed absolute file locations). I fixed that, so now I think it will actually reset every day like it should.

Wow. So they did find the boat, but not the guy. So it's possible he fell overboard. So it's probably very unlikely he's still alive. Unless he was like taken captive by pirates, or it drifted away when he stopped on some island... I hope whatever his circumstance that he is at peace

Monsanto’s Ghostwriting to Influence Science and Media by Drewski in propaganda

I had this idea once that maybe like 20% of saidit donations should go to independent research on Monsanto's RoundUp (glyphosate) and the cancers and diseases it causes, and to help develop cheap home tests for glyphosate so people can test their own foods and drinks for it.

Remember when anti-trust (anti-monopoly) laws used to be enforced? When Ma Bell was broken up?

Now America is almost entirely run by monopolies or duopolies, in almost every major industry. We have the opposite of a free market.

"Art or release" doesn't matter. If it looks real enough that I have to wonder, I'm going to treat it as real. I don't really have an option if I want this site not to get in trouble federally. This is exactly how we've done things for 3 years now.

They're going to start a new war. Very worrying sign of the direction the US is taking.

Hm thank you for the information, that's interesting, I hadn't considered that angle but it makes sense. Play them off each other, and maintain the social polarization necessary to ensure they can continue to be played off each other.

So you want to hear "off"? How about this... he made a thread on reddit to shame saidit just after being banned (which backfired) and then was also talking to his alt who made the thread using his main reddit socks account, and even fighting with himself!

https://old.reddit.com/r/RedditAlternatives/comments/uk8kk2/saidit_is_borked/i7odcbj/

And I know the reddit socks account is his because he started PMing me about it. And the OP of that thread is definitely also him because it was the only person I banned from saidit that day and the thread was created 2 hours after the ban. So they're both definitely socks.

Talk about strange. I still don't know what to make of that one. Why is he disagreeing with himself using alts

The way reddit socks says "It’s a Cloudflare security setting, not a Saidit ban. If you need this explained, ask." sounds like he wasn't even operating the socks account on saidit, because he didn't even realize it had been banned from saidit until a few hours later when he started PMing me. Like another person he was overseeing was running it and he thought that person had fucked up. So even though the reddit socks account is clearly associated with the saidit socks account, the reddit socks didn't realize the saidit one had been banned until hours later. So they're run by different people who are cooperating.

So it seems likely to be a group working together. Either that or he just loves insanely disagreeing with himself to create random public arguments.

Talk about "off".

edit: And then he deleted the reddit comment, removing the evidence. And then replied to this saidit comment using another alt account I had to ban. This guy has way too much time on his hands.

Janet Yellen Admits Joe Biden’s Actions Have Caused Soaring Inflation by [deleted] in politics

[–]magnora7 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

They print 60% of the money supply in just a couple years because it's an emergency and then are "surprised" when massive inflation hits and blame it on the current puppet in office. Now they're slamming on the brakes by massively raising rates, and it's going to crash the stock market.

It's so dumb it almost looks intentional. It may just be. Maybe they'll just keep raising rates while "bailing out" the stock market and we'll go back to status quo? But the housing market is still going to take a hit if rates go up, and that's what triggered 2008.

Big mess.

Yup, I just banned it, 3JOH22A was definitely a socks alt account. Saying the exact same phrases and words, coming out of the woodwork after months of inactivity, throwing threats my way and harassing users...

Hilariously I even checked the user admin notes, and six MONTHS ago, soundsituation marked the account as "probably a socks alt".

Obvious alt is obvious.

He's already had past temporary bans for this exact behavior. We already tried with him over and over and he keeps doing it.

No he clearly broke the rules very obviously when he advocated for detailed murder and torture of a specific person. It's against site rules. Not sure why you are defending someone who was promoting torture and murder, putting saidit in jeopardy... why would you defend that?

He didn't care about the rules in the first place, that's why he got banned...

Saidit won't grow catering to people advocating murder either... especially if that gets us shut down. I don't have all day to be giving people advocating murder 4th chances to participate in the community when they're clearly not acting in good faith. Let's get real. We have the rules for a reason, and they're useless unless enforced.

It's not about ideological opponents at all, it's about the fact that this potentially creates an existential crisis for saidit. If saidit gets shut down because we let one idiot run their mouth in a way that's literally illegal, then we all suffer. This is indeed a real legal issue as you mentioned, which is why I'm so strict about it. There is zero sense in putting all of saidit in jeopardy so one person can foam at the mouth with violent rage. Which is also breaking our rules we've had since day 1, which exist for that exact reason.

Also, stats show that saidit is slowly growing, so this concern about it dying out is ill-founded, thankfully. https://www.similarweb.com/website/saidit.net/#overview

I am glad it exists as a solution to a problem. D3rr mostly manages the chat. I will contact him. We still have a higher level of control over chat than that so we can cut this out at any time. Thanks for the info.

No they don't have the top pass, I'm pretty certain. They likely just have +o operator status for the channel because they were there when it did the daily reset. If you can show me they have the top pass then that would mean our chat has been completely hacked, but I'm pretty sure it has not been hacked

Chinese government to dump Windows in favor of Linux by Drewski in Linux

I can build an unhackable operating system just fine;

One that has a browser that is compliant with all modern internet standards? One that can load every image type and file type like a regular computer?

It's easy to make a new command line OS that does basic stuff, but to make a fully-functioning modern operating system is a gargantuan task. Literally hundreds of thousands of man-hours of careful coding and testing. You have to make video players, build TCP/IP/HTTPS protocols from scratch so they work with other computers on the internet, build graphics rendering systems, and on and on and on.

And that's also assuming you're using non-backdoored hardware, which would probably have to be designed from scratch too. Since all intel chips have been shown to have a built-in backdoor, and probably AMD too

Is It Working? by StillLessons in WorldPolitics

You touched on the piece I didn't address in my initial post, but which is profoundly important: is "Davos" actually Western (=opposed to Russia) or directing both Russian and Western policymakers. There is good reason to believe they are giving both countries the woodchipper treatment.

Well, the way I see it, the WEF and Klaus Schwab just "kicked out" Putin from the WEF because of his invasion of Ukraine. So he was already a long-time member.

It's possible this is genuine split. It's also possible this split is orchestrated theater to create the appearance of a conflict where in reality there is none. Perhaps they just needed a war to justify a shift the petrodollar away from USD to yuan or rubles. Perhaps they just wanted a distraction from the corruption being uncovered in regards to covid and the shots, as well as the Maxwell/ Epstein network that is one of their primary levers of control.

"will people in Russia or in the West accept some super-national body rather than a national body based on the culture of a country within which we have lived for centuries?"

I see this as a pointless question, as nation-states are already a super-national body compared to the district-level governments that humanity has traditionally had for millennia. What's another step up in that progression?

In other words, tearing down existing societies is possible (ugly as hell, but they are very good at it, and I agree with you that this is entirely the explicit plan), but that still doesn't get them the last mile to their goal.

Problem, reaction, solution. If you make the existing circumstances so unbearable that everyone is breaking down, they will happily accept a larger governing body if it gives the appearance of fixing the problems. So you just manufacture a bunch of fake global problems, and then as soon as some larger governance gets an ounce of power, you turn down the intensity knob on the global problems. Then the global population associates the global governance with peace and prosperity in their individual lives. It's like a pavlov's dog association. If this positive emotion of relief from nonstop disaster is coupled with the advent of global government, people will accept it just like they accepted nation-states. Especially if there is the illusion of competition ("Oceania has always been at war with Eastasia") that gives people the illusion of choice, then they will even more willingly accept it.

Of course some people are going to pick up on this grift and ring the alarm bells, but most people are to emotionally affected to truly listen.

To me, the true point of fragility is where does it go after that? That global government (or 2-3 governments that "compete") will slowly become more authoritarian and corrupt too, once it is established by doing actual good things. Then it will become an absolute nightmare. Then it might become so brittle it will actually break, because the illusion of choice will have come to an end. That might be a very interesting time, that could be when humanity takes off our authoritarian shackles once and for all, because the system of governance will have nothing left to evolve to, no larger stage to conquer. That might be the beginning of the end for these who seek to have authority over billions of others.

There is no "registered themselves as owner of the channels". It resets every day from scratch

Saidit chat resets automatically every 24 hours, it's literally whoever happens to load the page first after it resets becomes the owner of that channel (not the whole server, just that channel like #subscribed). Every day it completely resets and begins anew, there are no official appointments to positions in chat.

This is a great idea.

It makes me wonder too, what if instead of just cataloging the deleted wiki articles, there was a site that had every version of every wiki article that has ever existed. So if some gatekeeper removes information someone has previously added, it would be visible on the other versions. That would truly be the most democratic version of wikipedia
