Compelling speech is a violation of the first amendment.

Yeah, I wish they could force it, but they can't. They might be able to come to an agreement between both parties that if the defendant did XYZ, the plaintiff would reduce damages by X amount.

I don't see that happening, though.

Please, DM me your last account, as this is feeling ban evasion. If it isn't I apologize, but your writing style seems familiar.

Updated the comment with your recommendation. Yeah. I suck at writing.

He likely only got the job because he's black so it evens out

That's one reason you received a ban from [email protected] (Racism, as noted in the ban message).

Ate shit like you said. Tasted like your mother's pussy.

That's another reason you had a comment removed. Reason given: "Civility"

My address is your mum's bedroom

That one caused a ban from [email protected] (reason given: "First rule of the community is Be Kind. Come back later and try again.")

Your entire Modlog is on display, so don't say "They'll ban you without even telling you why"

Fascist: a far-right, authoritarian, ultranationalist political ideology and movement, characterized by a dictatorial leader, centralized autocracy, militarism, forcible suppression of opposition, belief in a natural social hierarchy, subordination of individual interests for the perceived good of the nation and/or race, and strong regimentation of society and the economy.

Yeah. Removing content that is offensive is being fascist...

As a DevOps Architect, let me make it simple:

With a single front-end, you have a bottleneck. If you have one domain (website) that everybody goes to to get to the front-end, that means that domain is the single point of failure.

In my line of work, we use load balancers and sub-domains to divide the work and provide resilience (High Availability), but at the end of the day, if the DNS for that site goes down, we're down.

Also, as Jet mentioned, ~~whomever~~ whoever controls the domain (website) controls the content. You can't have multiple groups controlling a single domain. Whomever buys it controls it. If they don't like content, they could easily block access to it.

I'm oversimplifying the inner workings, so if you want more details, let me know.

EDIT: subtext called me out on my crap English. Have nobody to blame but myself. English is my first language.

They spammed the same comment multiple times. It wasn't the content, but the nature of their commenting. When you copy/paste your comments everywhere, it tends to get flagged as spam.

It's amazing what people can turn into an insult.

I live in a "flyover state". What does that say about me?

I mean, surely it means something, or you said it for no reason.

Please, psychoanalyze me based on where I live.

The point is that if you see things, report them. That's how we keep the community civil

We are volunteers, with full-time jobs. We don't watch all the comments in our communities. We tend to only act on reported infractions. For example, you are reported often for rule violations (rule 2, mostly).

Following that logic:

  • we shouldn't try to stop murder, because it will always happen
  • we shouldn't try to stop racism, because it will always happen
  • we shouldn't try to stop slavery, because it will always happen
  • we shouldn't try to stop government corruption, because it will always happen

We shouldn't look at our past and say "we will never rise up above this, so why try". We become better incrementally, by TRYING to be better.

By basically saying "you're disillusion for advocating for better" means you've given up. I and many like me haven't. There's no reason we can't work towards a safer society for all.

Please explain your comment. It could be seen that you are (mockingly or otherwise) stating that all sex is rape. As this is not completely clear, I would ask that you explain what you meant.

[-] [email protected] 33 points 1 week ago

The comments have (no pun intended) gone off the rails. Locking.

As this community continues to grow, we are noticing periods of time that moderation isn't as responsive, due to most of the moderators being asleep at that time. If you want to help us, and live in Asia/Asia Pacific/Australia/New Zealand area, please comment here that you're interested, why you think you'd be a good fit for the team, and anything you'd change if you were picked.
