The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country. —Hermann Göring

Hey guys! Anyone seen Forty Two?

Or is there a 'media bias' in this place, pushing away any opinions which don't agree?

I've noticed that while I was gone, the chatter is still almost exclusively about politics, but you guys are a lot less interesting, echoing the mainstream media stuff.

I wonder what will come of yesterdays social media summit, and why Zuckerberg, Dorsey et al didn't get an invite...hmmm...did you guys get one? Or should I just lump you in with the other 'big tech' folks who didn't get an invite...?

If people don't have enough confidence in their views to defend them on an anonymous, non-contemporaneous text-based discussion format like this then they're under no obligation to hang around. Do you think we shouldn't disagree with people just to save their feeling - like giving all the kids a champion's medal on school sports day? :tea:

My best guess is that he left due to what he saw as unfair moderation.

Maybe you should ask some members who are 'right of center' politically (as I think Forty Two was) if they see things differently than you.

He got a one day suspension for personal attacks. I guess he couldn't count to 1. :hehe:

Since I don't know what the previous suspension was for, I doubt I'll last long. There really isn't much of interest here, now that it is all homogenized. There was just a Social Media Summit at the white house, and all everyone could do was be outraged that the Big Tech Billionaires weren't consulted.

Poor Zuch...Poor Dorsey...they didn't get invited to the club comprised of people they would ban from their platforms. My guess is that the entire right will be labeled 'alt-right' and you kids will be cautioned against listening to their harmful messages.
