I like 1/3 of the way through, instead of a sax solo they have a "wah wah" solo lol

Good song

I love this show, and this song. The song is called "Syd Dale - Beauty Parade"

Here's one of Syd Dale's earlier albums: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NOyh4F3w9RM

His cowardice hit me hard though. I can't explain it. Maximum squandered potential I guess.

Yeah I felt similarly at the time when bowed out of the DNC race instead of fighting the rigging.

I think having a way of visually distinguishing the "ignored" stuff is good, though, so we can manually ignore it.

Not a bad idea. I'll have to think about the details of that one.

We might add an ignore button, you're the 2nd to suggest it in the last few days.

Yeah it sucks, he's "playing the game" to try and have a chance at winning, but it's screwing everyone over.

Now he supports war.

Well he campaigned on the right things, mostly, but then rolled over like a doormat for Hillary when the DNC rigged the primaries in 2016

Should the "funny" vote be called the "fun" vote? by magnora7 in AskSaidIt

Actually we inherited an upvote/downvote system, and that's what Aaron designed. And the insightful/funny is actually the system slashdot uses, that's where I got the inspiration from to apply it to a reddit-like system.

I see what you mean, but I think I actually would vote comments as fun if they're funny. Funny things are always fun as well, imo

Interesting idea, I'll consider it.

I don't know, though; this is a really, really tricky problem.

It honestly is. I think it's the problem of the decade, as far as the internet is concerned. I bet books had a similar problem when the printing press was invented. So much propaganda masquerading as real information, and so hard to tell what is what.

I watched it! It was pretty cool. It got really dark and the cold night gave a clear view of the sky. Most of the time only one tip was white, with a gradient going to red, then black. Neat to see it change in real time, and think about the sun being exactly on the opposite side of the earth as the moon.

I agree.

However if one person makes 50 accounts and just posts garbage to the front page 500 times a day, drowning out all the other posts... is that free speech? No, that is someone trying to destroy the forum. They are trying to drown out legitimate conversation, and are thus encroaching on the free speech of others and trying to silence them!

What do you think should be done in this situation? Just let someone spam so much nonsense until this forum is worthless?
