Quote from: Todd on November 21, 2022, 04:39:23 AMSocial media causes genocide. The final solution is government control of speech on social media platforms.
Quote from: JBS on November 20, 2022, 05:17:21 PMSeveral have gone to Mastodon.Following them on Mastodon takes more effort if you are on a Mastodon server that is not "federated" with the server they are on. There doesn't seem to be a way of figuring that out before you set up there.It's easy to delete your Twitter account, and you have 30 days to change your mind.I intend to stay on Twitter until/unless it gets unuseable, but I have set up an account on Mastodon.Reddit has a classical music subreddit, so I set myself up there but have yet to give it any sort of inspection.
Quote from: Spotted Horses on November 21, 2022, 05:09:24 AMI do not think that speech itself should be controlled on social media. I think there should be much stricter controls one what social media companies do with your speech on their platforms. I think it should be illegal for social media companies to compile detailed information on a persons behavior on their platform (what they post, what links they click on) and sell this information without explicit permission. And by explicit, I mean to the extent that when you click on a story with headline "Nancy Pelosi's husband was actually attacked by a gay prostitute who he had hired that night" a dialog would pop up saying, "Do you wish to share the fact that you viewed this link with the RNC, Breitbart News, the Russian Intelligence Service, Steve Bannon, and Crackerbarrel?" I think it should be illegal for social media platforms to choose to push content to your feed based on people paying for access to your feed. They should be constrained to show content based on who you follow, not based on who wants you to follow them. I do not claim that such regulations would be easy, or even possible, to implement.

Quote from: DavidW on November 25, 2022, 02:26:20 PMAnyway Elon Musk wants to buy Reddit next. Of course I don't know how he will turn Twitter around to profitable if he mass fires essential staff.

Quote from: amw on November 26, 2022, 07:08:55 AMCertainly there have been no similar periods in US history where a politically motivated press spread false accusations of sexual crimes against a reviled minority over decades, indirectly encouraging vigilante killings and riots as well as a set of repressive laws disenfranchising that minority, and if that had happened, well, there's absolutely no way it could have been prevented.
Quote from: Todd on November 26, 2022, 07:27:14 AMI am pretty close to a free speech absolutist, but doxxing can be viewed as criminal behavior, an online form of menacing, which is a misdemeanor in many jurisdictions, and along with targeted threats (against specific people) should result in bans online. These are the only forms of online activity that should result in bans. Both behaviors are very common across the political spectrum. Ask SCOTUS justices.The contemporary world is special, unique, and unprecedented in every way.
Quote from: Gurn Blanston on November 26, 2022, 05:54:01 AMI deleted my Twitter account yesterday. Life is too short to bother taking part in every 21st century clusterfuck that comes down the road. Pity, I largely enjoyed the time I spent there. 🤠
Quote from: JBS on November 26, 2022, 08:08:16 AMI believe amw was referring to posting copies of advertising or summarizing publicly advertised information about planned events, not individual's private information.

Quote from: Florestan on November 26, 2022, 09:31:20 AMFree speech is great. Thoughtful speech is greater.
