Ah cool. Yeah the fish evolution game is all about evolving neural nets. You can hit 'f' and it will go in to fast mode and you can see graphs of it improving. And then hit 'f' to turn off fast mode and go back in to viewing mode. That's the most important button.

If we need a mod there, I will be sure to contact you. Thanks for offering.

It's called that because it's based around fishes that evolve. You should try it.

I was actually just building an update to their neural networks a couple days ago, I re-wrote the brains from scratch with a new architecture that works even better than the typical layered feed-forward ANN brain design used in most neural nets.

Also I made s/evolution public again, I don't know why that mod did that. Probably maliciously to keep people from using it.

So I reported the abuse of the DMCA system to all 6 employees I spoke with. Most gave me the brush-off, but one of them said this:

Thanks again for following up with these details, and apologies again for this mixup. Typically we avoid passing on a request if we find it to be frivolous and you should not see further complaints of this nature unless they are valid under DMCA law.

We appreciate your cooperation and please let us know if you have any additional questions.

So that sounds like a good development.

Well, now I'm getting more DMCAs and they're modifying the requests so the copyrighted material does actually match. So I will have to take down a few links here soon, but it will be limited in scope to those that can be shown to actually link to "stolen" material.

So I've fought off the main thing of fake requests, but now he's making requests where the linked material does actually match the copyrighted material so I'm forced to take it down.

Thanks! Big win for saidit. Yup, now we have a history of 6 of them, each of which were independently found to be fraudulent.

So if the server company has any sense, they'll blacklist that person's email from future DMCA requests.

Also it's a federal crime under perjury to submit false DMCA claims: https://www.gerbenlaw.com/blog/false-dmca-takedown-notices-ninth-circuit-holds-that-copyright-owners-must-consider-fair-use-before-issuing-take-down-notices/

The claims could be traced back to the original person and they would get in big trouble. And the more fake claims they submit, the bigger the trail leading to them becomes.

Fuck yeah, all 6 just got refuted.

It became clear after they did 6 more literally 5 minutes after I deleted the first one, that they aren't going to stop until they remove all of IP2. So it was either call their bluff or slowly have the whole website be deleted. Thankfully our server company worked with us quite well once I pointed out that the copyright link doesn't match the takedown request! All 6 were closed as invalid DMCA claims.

Well fuck yea, finally some light at the end of the tunnel. I'm awaiting replies on all 6 DMCA take down requests tickets right now, after I showed the video is not related to the link they want taken down. I just got the first one back, and he said this:

Hi there,

You are correct, apologies for the oversight. The two videos are not related. As this is the case, I am going to close this matter out. If you have further questions or concerns, please let us know.

Boom! Done. Now just have to get the other 5 tickets to do the same (every ticket I'm talking to a different employee). Also the user reporting these fake DMCAs could potentially be committing a federal crime, so I'm making it a point to gather up the various fake DMCA reports and let each employee know this is a pattern we're seeing from this person generating these fraudulent legal claims, and they need to watch out for this person.

What's super crazy is I'm realizing that the "original copyright claim" has literally NOTHING to do with the pages they want taken down. Not even linking to it, or mentioning it, or screenshots, or anything. It's literally 100% unrelated. So I'm pointing this out to the server people and I'm awaiting their responses... I talked to a few different people about it, I got a different employee for each new ticket we got. So hopefully at least one will realize what is going on.

[–]magnora7 4 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 0 fun5 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

Now the server company is saying:

Regardless of where the original content is hosted, this DMCA complaint is still valid. You cannot link or redirect to any content that violates copyright. Please remove the infringing link as per the complaint.

And now I'm trying to show that many of the links they want me to remove don't even have anything at all to do with the video they link as original source material. Like they literally linked to a random youtube video, and then a random ip2 link, and then said "you have to take down the ip2 link because of the copyrighted material" but the ip2 link doesn't have anything at all to do with the "copyrighted" youtube video! Like 0% at all, nothing related, not one thing. So now I'm trying to get the server company to see this.

Yeah no shit it's fucked.

Our server company just said this to me: "You must remove access to the material immediately. If you do not, [server company redacted] must remove or disable access to the material expeditiously under federal law; this will require us to place restrictions on your server in 96 hours unless you comply."

The video was hosted on streamable, we just linked to it. So we aren't even hosting the property they allege we are hosting. Also they sent me 2 different notices/tickets over the same URL.

They claimed these are the "original works" upon which we are infringing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIvXpn94NzY&feature=youtu.be

The only thing we actually host is the thumbnail. And surely you can't DMCA someone over a thumbnail to a video freely available on youtube... that'd be insane.

Yeah we got a legit DMCA takedown request about it today, and I had to act in 72 hours or our hosting service said to us that they would take us offline. I figured removing one post to keep the site online is a reasonable compromise to make the problem go away and keep saidit online. However if this behavior continues beyond just this one incident, we will probably be forced to start disputing the DMCA claims.

He probably played both sides as it was convenient. The Rothschilds were kicked out Germany during WW2, so he definitely had some anti-Zionist leanings.

“If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.” ― George Orwell by sproketboy in quotes

[–]magnora7 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

I agree with the quote.

But on the flip side also imagine if I go up to someone and say like "You asshat, you're so bad and dumb and no one likes you" and stuff over and over, right in their face. Then say they go inside and shut the door in my face so they can't hear me anymore. Have I been deprived of my liberty by being kept from telling someone else what they don't want to hear? I don't think so.

I think the value of the message is important (facts vs personal attacks) in this equation. And also the ability to say something doesn't mean the ability to say it to one particular person, nor does it demand they listen. Perhaps public figures like representatives are exemptions, as they should be required to listen to their constituents. But most people are not required to listen to everything that is put in front of them, nor should they be.

However people should have the ability to broadcast ideas broadly. However people shouldn't be able to shout fire in a crowded theater. The line between the two is very fuzzy and complex when you try to find exactly where it is.

What SaidIt Considers Insightful by CompleteDoubterII in memes

[–]magnora7 27 insightful - 6 fun27 insightful - 5 fun28 insightful - 6 fun -  (0 children)

It's the lowest common denominator for this website. Reddit is so obviously taken over by left-leaning people that most of the people who get banned unjustly are right-leaning. Ergo saidit's culture reflects what reddit cuts off.

So posts like "reddit bad" and "leftists bad" are things almost everyone here will agree with because of their experience with reddit which is what caused most of them to come here. It gets old sometimes, but it's also understandable given how this place came to exist.

In addition some people want to hijack saidit's culture to make it lean more far-right, and that contributes to the overall lean as well.

It was nice when we had all the lesbians here who got banned from reddit, but they didn't integrate themselves with the site culture as much as I'd hoped, and most kind of just sequestered themselves in subs they took off of /all. Which is fine, I was just hoping they'd contribute to the melting pot of the front page more to add a little left-right balance. Oh well, it's all good though.

I've noticed too if the first few posts on the front page are not good, I notice the posts after that are usually good. Like posts 3 through 40 on the front page are usually pretty solid overall.

We might release a sitewide ban list, but that's the only piece of information that isn't already public

Why I like saidit. It doesn't have downvotes, and that is pro free-speech. When you have downvotes that discourages people from speaking up. We don't need downvotes. If someone says something dumb here, then it just won't rise up, and that's enough. There doesn't need to be double punishment. by suckitreddit in censorship

[–]magnora7 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

The problem though is that when you get downvoted a lot, it sorts the comments so yours is at the bottom, then after even more downvotes it collapses the comment so people have to click it to see it. That means way less people are going to read it. So it limits the spread of what you're saying. That's why downvotes are censorship, in a lot of cases. It has little to do with feelings, but rather with the sorting mechanism.

Her name is Ariana Pekary! Seems like a name worth remembering and repeating, if she's willing to make a stand like this.

Awesome. It's a good movie for a lot of reasons: It shows how complex war is, and how when fighting a war you might not be fighting for who you think you're fighting for... It also tells a very niche viewpoint of a little-mentioned war, so it's interesting for that historical aspect too. Definitely worth a watch!

God that's so awful. It shattered that glass balcony the person filming was behind. And all the people below driving and walking... there might be even more fatalities than I was thinking. I'd hope to think it's in the 50-200 range, but it may have killed thousands of people. Horrific.

Yeah I'm thinking this is 50-200 fatalities probably... not good. I heard the firefighters were just arriving and had set up to put out the fire right before it exploded... so that's horrible. On the plus side, the fireworks going off might have given people enough warning to get away at least some distance. So that hopefully saved a lot of lives, but I don't think anyone expected an explosion of that immense size.

I don't think it was a second explosion, it was just the shock waves. The "first explosion" was the combustion, and the "second explosion" was the low-pressure shockwave imploding to fill the space vacated by the explosion, and then going outward after it imploded. At least that was my take on it

Yeah the yellow fog after is why people are saying ammoium perchlorate was the explosive

Thanks! Using those 9 threads, I was able to confirm self-upvoting across multiple accounts associated with those votes. All confirmed self-upvoting accounts and IPs have been banned. I appreciate your help in finding these people manipulating saidit's vote system which is against site rules.

Yes I agree. However that conflicts with my goal of being transparent and open about the reasons for why things are happening... so I'm caught in this impossible position. If I explain everything in great detail all the time, everyone is informed but also fights with me about everything constantly and it's exhausting. If I don't explain what I do, my life is easier but the site's operations get less and less transparent to the users. So I'm always having to balance these conflicting goals. Even after 3 years of doing this I'm still not sure what the right way is. However the timer ban levels seem like a good next move.

Lebanon used to be a pretty great country from what I have read before this whole Iran/Israel proxy war there.

I would like to take this moment to tell people about the animated historical movie "Waltz With Bashir" which is about this exact thing. It's a good movie, worth a watch.

I don't think so, it was too small of an explosion for nuclear. And plus there'd be reports of radiation readings from Geiger counters in lebanon and there's not

Yeah that'd be good. The current "strike" system is me giving them a warning in a comment, which almost always leads to a fight, especially on IP2. I don't want to spend my day fighting with people. So if I could issue the strikes in the form of temporary bans with increasing length, I think that would work well from my end and would give the users a chance to change their behavior too.

I can't look at one thread for vote manipulation, but if you have a series of threads that you think were all vote manipulated by the same person or group, I can run an analysis on those threads all together. A list of 8+ threads is ideal, but I can run the self-upvoting analysis on as few as 4 threads. If you make a list of threads, I will run it

Yeah I wish we had more intermediate-level ban tools as well, I do think we can build a 24-hour ban, and a 3-day ban. I agree it would be more fair, especially for more established users. I have to build it though, it's probably a 10-hour project to create. Hopefully this month I can find time to knock it out.

If people wouldn't advocate violence, then I wouldn't have to ban anyone. I'm not too keen on spending my whole day keeping track of ban levels and warnings for people who are literally promoting murder and rape.

We're improving our tools, and I will probably build a ban function with a timer, but at the same time, people should not be saying this shit in the first place. We have the rule "no advocating violence" for a reason.

Sorry I don't spend time memorizing memes about rape, I have other things that are more important to do. Plus the ban was reversed, so how about show some gratitude?

Well there's certainly the motive for them to do so... I already saw an article about how Israel has a contract with Lebanon that if they support Hezbollah in any way at all, then Israel can do something to Lebanon like invade it or something... so if Israel wanted to make that happen, this would probably check those boxes. So it could be a regional territory grab based on a past contract. I don't know much about the contract itself or what it entails though.

Yup and it makes me sad, because when I try to limit those people... they ironically cry "You're killing the community!"

So I can never tell who is actually IP2 community and who is just a troll crying foul and playing victim. On the rest of saidit it's easier, because the level of decorum is higher, but on IP2 it can be hard to differentiate...
