Won't somebody please think of the shitposters?

'Reddit updates hate speech policy, bans subreddits including The_Donald'
Reddit updated its policies against hate speech Monday and banned 2,000 communities or "subreddits," including one devoted to President Trump.

The forum r/The_Donald had over 700,000 users, although activity had declined on it since the 2016 election. Several of the most popular posts on the forum on Monday morning were months old.

The new policy explicitly bans subreddits and users that "promote hate based on identity or vulnerability."

"All communities on Reddit must abide by our content policy in good faith. We banned r/The_Donald because it has not done so, despite every opportunity," the company wrote in a post announcing the changes.

"The community has consistently hosted and upvoted more rule-breaking content than average, antagonized us and other communities, and its mods have refused to meet our most basic expectations. Until now, we’ve worked in good faith to help them preserve the community as a space for its users—through warnings, mod changes, quarantining, and more."

The community, which was created in the run-up to the 2016 election, has a history of hateful posts and conspiracy theories.

It has been influential, with some content created on it ending up on Trump’s Twitter account.

Reddit had previously been “quarantined,” making the community harder for users to stumble upon it in searches.

Among the 2,000 subreddits banned, only 200 had more than 10 daily users.

Among the more active communities banned Monday was r/ChapoTrapHouse, a forum dedicated to the leftist podcast of the same name.

"Though smaller, r/ChapoTrapHouse was banned for similar reasons: They consistently host rule-breaking content and their mods have demonstrated no intention of reining in their community," Reddit's post reads.

I think they got rid of TERF's too. Can't have 'gender critical ' writing hosted on a public service like that!

Not that there is a bias there in favour of one party or their kooky ideas...

Parle seems to be doing fine at the moment. It's going to experience the same kind of ruin, of course, but it's looking like it'll be fun to watch.

A lot of those 'banned' voices are collected there, and it looks like they just left twitter behind in the apple app store ratings.

Parler is doing fine, rEv. Many staunch defenders of free speech have joined already. Among them are Donald Trump Jr., Dan Bongino, Rudy Giuliani, Katie Hopkins, Alex Jones, Ted Cruz, Laura Ingraham, Brad Parscale, Mike Lee and Candace Owens
According to Matze, as of May 2019, Parler had about 100,000 users. Parler said its user base had more than doubled in June 2019 when around 200,000 accounts from Saudi Arabia signed up to the network...

So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

This Twitter Alternative Was Supposed To Be Nicer, But Bigots Love It Already

“Shalom goys! Remember to accept more illegal immigrants into the USA! Remember diversity is your strength goy! What’s that? Why doesn’t Israel accept rapefugees? Uh… because… OY VEY LOOK AT THE TIME! Have to go!”

These words, which are accompanied by a caricature of a large-nosed, yarmulke-wearing Jew, read like the kind of white supremacist screed you’d find in one of the corners of the internet known for hatred and bigotry. They’re not on Gab or 4chan, though — they’re on a new, growing platform called Parler News.

John Matze, the self-described libertarian engineer behind Parler, says his goal is to provide an alternative to Twitter by fostering political discourse more like what you get in real life, when face-to-face conversations mitigate much of the anger. He hasn’t succeeded as yet, however. Parler is full of fury, fear and conspiracy theories. What’s more, the platform doesn’t have the technology or resources necessary to contain the Jew-hatred and Islamophobia so easily found there.

“I don’t think you can have it both ways,” said Alison Dagnes, a professor of political science at Shippensburg University. “I don’t think it works that you say, ‘We’re going to have a safe space for people who have been kicked off of other platforms because their speech is hateful and we promise that this safe space is going to be really civilized.’ How does that work? There is no such thing as civilized hate speech.”..

Parler is probably owned by Amazon, and feels like a trap.

I'm not sure what kind, but back when facebook started to feel that way, I banned me and haven't been back.

It's like twitter, but claims 'free speech', and if you miss 42, or others disagreeing robustly with you, give it a try.

But it feels like a trap.

It took unreasonably long, but I found something NOT politics related on there.

Amazing:

France bans Dutch bike TV ad for creating 'climate of fear'
Ad for VanMoof bike unfairly discredits automobile industry, says watchdog

A TV commercial for a Dutch-made bicycle has been banned by France’s advertising watchdog for creating a “climate of fear” about cars.

Despite being aired on Dutch and German television, the Autorité de régulation professionnelle de la publicité (ARPP) said the ad for the VanMoof bike unfairly discredited the automobile industry.

The advert features a shiny black car on which are reflected images of chimneys, the flashing lights of emergency vehicles and traffic jams. The vehicle melts away to transform into the Dutch company’s latest e-bike, accompanied by the tag line: “Time to ride the future”.

“Some images in the reflection of the car are, in our opinion, unbalanced and discredit the entire car sector,” the ARPP said in a letter sent to VanMoof. “The images of factories/chimneys and an accident create a climate of fear. So they will have to be adapted.”
It is not a legal bike here as you can travel at 32kph. The maximum here is 25kph. It then becomes a pedelec and needs an expensive moped insurance and helmet. Also means you cant use urban cycle lanes.
