I agree. I used to be 'meh' about it, but now I actively hate it because it's shoved in our faces so often. It's Disney's cash cow (one among many).

I think we hit peak star wars when they started selling star wars branded oranges: https://www.friedas.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/bb8_oranges_slowdown.jpg

Why do we need to be doing this. I don't like this.

If you want to talk about it, fine. But why do we need to make dueling subs over this one topic. It's not helpful or good, imo.

Voat is already a hub of holocaust skepticism. If we don't want to become voat, why are we echoing the types of conversations they have?

Again, I don't mind talking about it reasonably, but I REALLY do not see the need to be creating entire subs about this. It's putting saidit in a dangerous position, as new users go "Oh this is a right-wing site that hates jews" and when we are constantly posting about this topic, it only fuels that hatred. This is not what saidit is about.

There's already 3 posts on reddit talking about saidit and how it's becoming voat, because of the over-focus on this topic by creating subs and so on.

If you have a specific piece of evidence, great. I however do not see the value in re-treading this same vague discussion, again and again and again. This is much more harmful to saidit than it has any real-world benefit as far as I can see.

This site is against censorship, but that also doesn't mean it's a total free-for-all. That's the thing a lot of people don't get. Boundaries have to exist for this site to continue.

I don't want reddit levels of censorship either, that's also our stated mission. But we're much more in danger of becoming voat than we are of becoming reddit.

I don't like what they did to the Gab app, but I don't think we should pull ours. We'd only be hurting ourselves, imo. Not like f-droid cares about us or our app anyway. If there was a good alternative that'd be one thing, but I don't really see one.

I just don't think it's something that needs an entire sub. You could just as easy post in a general /skepticism sub. By tying saidit with this type of discourse, this is pulling us in the direction of becoming voat, and avoiding that is one of our core mission goals.

Oh no it doesn't matter at all. I just thought it was funny because I've never tried injecting test data after creating an account, only before. I was just laughing at the code's eccentricities, it has no bearing on the functionality of the site.

The SSL thing is not too bad, d3rr has the procedure down to a science, do it how he suggests. We have to do the SSL renewal every 2 months.

Thank you for documenting your path as you launch this! I'm sure it will help others who try and do the same in the future. The more that is documented, the better!

If you get stuck do not hesitate to ask for help! We're excited to help people set up more saidits

I don't care if it's considered censorship. People have already tried to push that angle. Our key missions are not to become voat, and not to become reddit.

If I have to delete a few posts and remove a few users to keep us from becoming voat, then so be it. I'd rather have a nice community people can actually feel comfortable in, than to cling to some idealized version "free speech" that just serves to give people an opening to fuck this website up and hoist us on our own petard and make saidit look like voat.

Good I'm glad you see where I'm coming from. This is something I take very seriously.

The spam filter is probably in the sub settings, not the automod. You probably have some filter set to 'high' instead of 'off' would be my guess

Fine, but I would suggest just letting this sub die off and not posting things in it, if we really want saidit to not be voat. There really does not need to be a community built around this topic. People should go to voat if that's what they want.

At one point they discuss the origin of the word 'fuck', so I looked it up, and it's a pretty interesting article: https://www.etymonline.com/word/fuck

I liked this part in particular:

It became so common that an effective way for the soldier to express this emotion was to omit this word. Thus if a sergeant said, 'Get your ----ing rifles!' it was understood as a matter of routine. But if he said 'Get your rifles!' there was an immediate implication of urgency and danger. [John Brophy, "Songs and Slang of the British Soldier: 1914-1918," pub. 1930]

Also

Fuck was outlawed in print in England (by the Obscene Publications Act, 1857) and the U.S. (by the Comstock Act, 1873).

I never would've guessed it had been banned so long ago in print.

I just posted one video about it, it seemed pretty important because I learned about the amount of cancers it caused that I previously didn't know about. I don't really have a trend of posting about it though, personally

My grandfather was American fought in WW2 and says he was present when the US military opened the gates of Dachau concentration camp.

I think there were so many camps to liberate that multiple forces did multiple liberations. But you're right I've never heard that bit about the French & Albanians, having gone through American public schools

Mobile, Jurisdiction and Bitchute bot? by TheCockyOne in SaidIt

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

We have a mobile site for narrow screens like phones, check it out at m.saidit.net

This is a backup if we were to lose the app somehow.

Saidit is hosted in Switzerland.

There is no bitchute bot for saidit. We might develop something like this in the distant future, but it's not currently in the works.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Nice I made a post: https://portcity.online/s/Introductions/comments/1/test_post/

Funny when you created the new batch of test data, it actually added data to my existing account! It added a bunch of posts and votes by magnora7 but I didn't make them. Must be a little bug in the test-data code. Funny

The premise is so absurd that no one can take it seriously

Except, you know, that's what actual neo-nazis truly believe. It's not funny to wish death on millions of people. Period. Don't do it again.

We're trying to distance ourselves from this, that's the whole point of saidit to avoid being voat, and you're tying us right back in to it. I'm not sure if you're just being inadvertently clumsy, or if you're being intentionally malicious, but either way you need to stop.

I hardly think it's sabotage at all.

It is though. There are already multiple threads on reddit, defaming saidit, because of this one post.

You are NOT helping saidit when you do stuff like this, in fact you are actively destroying any goodwill we've built up. I hope you realize this. You are damaging saidit's reputation quite badly with these clumsy posts.

Venom, the matzah ball is in your camp court.

Super duper tasteless. How do you expect anyone to take you seriously when you're saying things like this, and posting blatantly racist comics in the comments?
