How are you convincing people to abandon big tech and adopt FOSS and decentralized solutions?
>>79685526By using them
>>79685526Idk how you fight a monopoly so strong. They are on Standard Oil levels and only the government could do something by this point. Not that they wil llol
>>7968555775 million americans voted for Trump. They are now seeing Twitter and Facebook explicitly cracking down on free speech and banning/shadowbanning people left, right and centre. Even a lot of the normalfags who voted Trump can see something is not right, which is why they're starting to dump the major social media platforms. Even Europe is baffled by Twitter outright banning Trump.It's not going to happen overnight, but it's not completely unrealistic to suggest it's possible to refuse twitter's stranglehold on the distribution of information, which is one of the biggest problems in society today.
>>79685526Big tech Big governmentBig moneyBig mediavs.alternatives made by enraged trump supportersLol
>>79685603>alternatives made by enraged trump supportersYep, you're a complete idiot alright. You also do not belong on /g/.
Join the fediverse. Use the GNU alternatives. Social media -> PleromaYoutube -> PeertubeIG -> Pixelfedhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOiCACmjKBMBASEDlist>fediblock.org/blocklist/
>>79685526Why should I convince others? They know those companies control what they can say and their personal data, they just don't care.
>>79686067>they just don't careThey're starting to.Even my boomer mum is getting concerned amid recent news. Now is the right time to convince people.
>>79685620Can I host a server with a home server? Like with a docker image?I run Unraid on my Home Server.
>>79685620>Luke SmithDidn't read
>>79686079They are starting to, but only because of the whole Trump social media fiasco being shown on TV. My country talked a LOT about Twitter, Amazon, Facebook and Whatsapp. Even some newspapers dedicated some pages about it and how you should install Signal and Telegram instead.If the whole issue with orange man didn't happen, I can assure you, people would keep using those apps and sites
>>79686190Is there a problem?Recent news isn't going to affect the entirety of proletarian society, but it's at least a start. A lot of conservatives are beginning to wake up and realize there is a big problem with social media in its current state, and are now exploring alternatives.Now is as good of a time as any to spread the word of importance regarding FOSS software and decentralization. More people are listening than ever before.
>>79686197Well, until I develop my own nukes, I'm going to have to kiss someones boots.
>FOSS is going to be considered problematic now>Soon not being part of the botnet means you're a Nazi.Thank you, America, thank you very much.
There's no reason to, many have been aware of big tech's influence on our daily lives long before Trump called them out the day the election results came in. However technology truly is the way ahead and technology cannot work if it's FOSS. Facebook and Twitter are gonna get backlash for censoring the US president and will inevitably regret it.
god this board is filled to the brim with /pol/fags
1. I never used Shopify, Amazon, Apple, Pinterest, Tiktok, Twitch, Snapchat2. My Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are only used for searching purposes.3.Spotify is the only viable option for music. 4. The best I can do is use DuckduckGo, I can't just degoogle my phone. I need whatsapp in my country. 5.Reddit and 4chan are the only social media I use.
>>79686367no, this board is filled with technology enthusiasts who are more concerned with freedom, privacy, and a competitive internet than with feelings. Censorship is inherently anti-/g/. At the moment, monopolistic "big tech" is going on a censorship spree, and regardless of WHO is being censored, their monopolistic practices are disgusting and need to be stopped.I stopped giving a shit about politics but I want to see Google, Twitter, Facebook, etc crash and burn for the filth they have brought.
>>79686448Been here 10 years, learned Linux embedded development unironically through the install gentoo meme, but I sincerely hope the neoliberal establishment slowly chokes you to death.
>>79686448No, it's filled with polfags like you who can't understand what censorship actually means.
>>79686448don't care, go back to /pol/

>>79686506>No, it's filled with polfags like you who can't understand what censorship actually means.
>>79686644I thought it was supposed to be down all week, I guess that's why the lolcow threads are gone. Fuck, does this mean /g/ is just going to be like this forever now?
>>79686506>censorship: the suppression or prohibition of any parts of books, films, news, etc. that are considered obscene, politically unacceptable, or a threat to security.
>>79686564>he thinks he has freedom under socialism

>>79686680You forgot an important part: BY GOVERNMENT OR OTHER BODY THAT CAN DENY YOUR GENERAL RIGHTS, not "lol, I got banned from twatter".Please stop pretending you're dumb and just admit you want to be fucking racist and hateful on social media like a dumb little spoiled, hateful child.
>>79686734>>796867071) fuck off to /pol/2) agree on a common definition on socialism before you start shit-flinging.

>>79687301I have already convinced three people to retire their apple laptops. So cry more
>>79686818Big cooperations already control the government, it's one step away.
>>79685526What has Spotify done?
>If you want something done right, do it yourself, Adolf Hitler
>>79687879They silenced Joe Rogan, the greatest living philosopher.

I'm hand running my stupid pile of shit helper function that refuses to work to the sound of my parents fucking upstairs, fucking hell I can't do this.
>>79687928>host your own shit insecure code>get raped by skiddies and botswhat a great idea!
>>79687931I thought some staff tried, but management didn't listen.
>>79687977anon, you either go unraped as a cuck or go down raped as a free man
>>79687977How about you actually not hosting insecure code? This is not hard. Read couple books, couple manuals, couple guides... Do not read stack overflow. And there we go.
>>79687985taxes going to the government eventually trickles down to the citizens through better infrastructure, social program and military which can in turn create even more wealth for the country and its citizens
>>79687996thank you for the advice anon, I believe you omitted the part where I'd also be doing a couple programmings
>>79687996secure codes cannot come from an insecure man, no amount of books or guides can change that, change needs to happen from within
>>79687748Yeah those dead people, felons, illegals sure did make their voices heard.
>>79688024based blm poster
>>79685526i tried for years but stopped bothering, some friends will come along with you but their presence at other platforms is short lived.thankfully people have been getting redpilled thanks to the trump/parler fiasco so i hope this builds momentum. >>79686835soulseek exists and im pretty sure there are solutions out there which let you stream your personal music collection to your other devices.
>>79685603i just want to make fun of trannies and niggers in peace and be able to call blatant trolls "retards" without temporarily losing access to my friends and family who are dumb enough to allow themselves to be used as hostages.
>>79688022>>79688007Am I a fucking genious, or you're retards? This is not hard as long as you use common sense™ (like not using default SSH port, "nigger" as a password), follow common modern up-to-date practices (e.g. not storing passwords as MD5 and sensetive information inside web root), keep software up-to-date, etc. Follow laws like GDPR (they give you a clue how to have a secure website). I mean, it won't be the most secure thing ever, but would be secure enough.
who gives a shit, I only have another 40y on this shitty world.
>>79688117>but would be secure enoughyeah people tend to think that before their shit gets fucked up
>>79686197wtf did I just watch
>>79685526What's even a viable alternative to youtube? Bitchute and most platforms like it only have the same kind of content (and will probably be shut down because of that content). All the other shit I dont use but I don't really see many alternatives to youtube for a content consumer as opposed to a content creator.
>>79688147If shit gets fucked, you're the only one to blame.
>>79688195tell you what, you're a good salesman
>>79687928Extremely unrealistic and unsustainable for everyone.
>>79686401Use Signal, maggot.
>>79688214I don't know what you find unrealistic there.
>>79688117>This is not hard as long as you use common sense™Cool give me your IP and 10 minutes
>>79685526What alternative is there to youtube? Bitchute has pretty much one specific kind of content that will probably just lead to it being shut down anyway. Most every other attempt at alternative video hosting has the same problem with all the content being the same.
>>79688182>>79688247Also why does it take multiple minutes for a post to show up, aaaaa
>>79688247i'm finding some other stuff on bitchute by browsing the categories; i hope it gets better at suggestion eventually
>>79687928>stop using payment services>start using paid hosts>stop using browsers>start making websitesSomething doesn't add up
>>79688239The implications of what is suggested, not its feasibility. Viable alternatives for everyone, not just some pet project. More privacy throughout society, the better.

>>79689211i was silenced cause i called someone a "retard"
>>79687748No, I also think its pretty messed up too. I like tax funded healthcare, but dislike this slippery slope into totalitarianism where only the official party's view can be represented in the mainstream media/social media/academia.

>>79689211Why were the NY Post silenced for their Hunter Biden story?I look forward to your brainwashed reasoning.
By building my own alternatives. Working on a youtube compete currently. Fully FOSS.
>>79689304Making a video hosting website isn't too difficult. It's the scalability.
>>79689211noooooooooooonot my corrupt child rapists elected officials please they're innocent they didn't do anything bad!!!!!!!!!please noooo not my superduper valuable DEMOCRACY that we hated this entire time...please!!! they are all innocent!! don't do anything.!!!!!!!
>>79689320100%. I'm going for a subscription based platform because I feel ad based revenue is equally as bad as closed source software (means the product being sold is the user and the customer is the ad networks). With $1/mo/user I can scale effectively even with higher $/GB traffic/hosting costs.
>>79689410It's going to be hard to get anyone to pay $1 for a website with no content whereas they have Youtube which is free with all the content they want.
>>79689436>>79689410But going off this. It is a good project, even just for the creating experience. Good luck
>>79685620>affid>refim not going to click that. fuck shills and their crappy refererral links
>>79685599>Even Europe is baffled by Twitter outright banning Trump.No, burger retard. EU apparatchiks are baffled by FAGMAN not allowing them the control over who gets censored.
>>79689410>>79689320I highly suggest hosting a PeerTube instance. It handles the scalability issue by dispersing the costs of servers over as many as users wish to host, and transfer of content itself is further bolstered by webtorrent. Its an open, federated platform and even has a lot of new features, including the first variant of livestreaming that came out recently in PeerTube 3.0 release. You're welcome to monetize any way you wish on your server, so if you want to set up a subscription server or something that's fine, but i'd suggest that over top yet another proprietary centralized subscription video hosting or streaming site. There are enough of those and it really doesn't help things overall.
There's only one thing left that is able to hurt big tech: luddismbuilding alternatives is futile, since they can't hold up against commercial products/services. what big corps rely on financially is the users, who are the foundation. remove the users, and you will remove the revue.no matter how big a corp is, if it can't make money it can't survive and will collapse under it's own weight. THEN we rebuild and we build better, banning all forms of advertising, data-mining and centralization.
>>79688522LMAO at Spotify making you discover "obscure artits". It's shit. The only people who use Spotify have normie tier taste in music. At this point even Youtube has moe shit than Spotify. There's nothing you cannot find via Soulseek.
>>79688326>>79689156reminder that the only people who complain about the socialism are the ones whose existence is not allowed under socialism. businesmess, rich celebrities etc, and not the actual average working class normies.really makes you think.
>>79689447thnx anon>>79689532> There are enough of those and it really doesn't help things overall.That's why I'm allowing you to choose your subscription fee. Anything over $1 is split evenly between everything you upvote on the site that month. So if you upvote 2 things and your subscription is $5/mo to the site, then those two things get $5 - $1 (site fee) / 2 upvotes = $2 each. It hopefully provides an alternative that's a better model than what's out there, and if not then at least the source code is free for someone else to build off of. Working on the encoding for the vids right now. Here's the upload view. Got the server encoding working last week for multiple resolutions, which opens a websocket to the frontend to stream progress.
>>79689605one of my favorite artists only has a few of their songs on youtube, but their whole collection is on spotify
>>79689605this, imagine saying a mainstream service is good for discovering obscure music. Also imagine arguing about it when it is a use case for 0.0000000000001%
>>79688817I like this meme :)

>>79689893because socialism is not what you think it is.socialism in general means abolition of private property. of course the ones who have private property also have the power, and they don't want that power to be taken away from them. that's why they are against the socialism. they are natural enemies of socialism.

>>79691219anon, that or just have kids, consider japan, land of homogeny and negative population growth
>>79685526It only works if high profile people and influential like Musk shill for it. You think people would have switched to Signal if Stallman asked the public to?
>>79690365>ocialism in general means abolition of private property.china abolished private property, and yet they still have 600,000,000 people living on less than $125 USD per year in abject poverty. the inequality in their society is greater than ever in history.

>>79691284>that or just have kidsDoes not work if your people are being threatened by replacement migration. Good on Japan for not doing that but.
>>79685526Only use two of them. Do all of you really use all of these?

>>79691343no the inequality cannot "affect the low/middle class" more than the other, that's not the way "inequality" works. the society has inequality, the classes do not have inequality.you seem to be a novice.
>>79691349Ever heard of the "refugee crisis"? Millions of fighting age men from incompatible cultures let into european countries every year. With an islamic cultural background that leads to them having many kids.
>>79691365I mean the private property part
>>79691380lol @ murifats who've never been to Europe but seem to be experts on EU politics
>>79691382there is no private property in china. well, noone can own land, the CPC own all land, and I mean all. but the things on the land, the bulidings, the shoes, whatever, they can be owned by a person. but the land is a 70 year lease. too short, many Chinese are finding.
>>79685526Add Whatsapp to them, but people have been pretty much redpilled this week about Facebook.
>>79685526I've been sending my friends and family a brief summary, why they should switch to Signal. Most of them did, so I guess that's a pretty big win. We also migrated (most) of our groups there.
My brother just told me to think of Twitter like a bakery and Trump like he was asking for a gay wedding cake...
>>79691434disappearing messages is so good, should be in every app. mine's set to a week, or one day depending on the group
>>79691380bruh I'm not even european but their birthrate is below replacement rate even before the spoopy refugee crisis, and your concern makes no sense because japan is probably the most homogeneous developed country and yet they are still going into negative population growth
>>79691444yeah, those are really cool B) this week has really lifted my hope for humans, I think one of the greatest dangers of our time is big data.
Dumb question. But are there any site or program to see if a Youtube channel is or have a parallel channel in any Youtube alternative?>>79691454Using it & Odisee too. But I ask about videos that arent in LBRY/Odisee.
>>79691467This is where you make a logical error. Populations cannot feasible grow ad infinitum, rather they grow while there are space and resources available, then shrink when overpopulated. Naturally this leads to a shrinking population growing again one or two generations later as there is an abundance of space and resources. Now if you want to genocide that population all you need to do is introduce foreigners to take the space and resources away as it opens up.And this is the core difference between France and Japan. The French population is being replaced by arabs, whereas the Japanese population is shrinking right now but will grow again in due time thanks to their politicians not being traitors who funnel in masses of foreign invaders.

>>79685557Standard Oil was a good monopoly though. They literally dropped oil prices down to 2% of what they were 10 years before they hit their peak.
>>79686448Expect the problem is that the proverbial Rubicon has been crossed decades ago. We are reaping what was sow then. Internet and meaningful privacy are mutually exclusive. Consolidation is the evenutal outcome of any mature market. The positive feedback effects make the big boys bigger while crushing and eliminating the small fry that couldn't make it.

>>79689648Thanks for your work here. Your monetization method is a solid option - is the code for implementing it independent of the rest of the video platform? If not, please make it so and easy to integrate to any site that allows user-created content / subscriptions (possibly with its own name, independent of the video site itself/template etc). Good on you for adding something and especially for making it open source. If you have the time, I'd suggest heading over to https://joinpeertube.org/ (reading over the new Peertube V3 blogpost may be useful) and contributing there, particularly with integrating your monetization system option so those who prefer it on their federated instances can use it. Some of your other work may be of help too. Thanks anon, you're making things better.
>>79686818First of all, the fact the tech companies have become de facto public space for political debate that otherwise would happen in "shared space" makes them public power more than just another private company. The very reason we are having this discussion is that past 15 years the tech companies have gained unprecendented power, and the legalities have failed for follow. Second, the definition of free speech is much more than just legal definition of it (The censorship by government). Laws are the minimal rules we can agreed on - culture and norms of free speech are much broader and indeed much prelevant issue. And the culture of self-censorship or growingly accepted idea of cancel culture proves the issue is beyond just governing body. It's simply intelligently dishonest to close one's eyes from this issue and reduce the arguments only one tiny part of free speech, while conviniently ignoring the social media's power and influence for just 'rprivate company do what you want xD" attitude.
>>79693745>doesnt use open source app to avoid ads>cares about quality when most phones are not up to flac standarts (only files that actually make a difference)>just lisent to 320 its good enough>u just got redpilled.

Anyone know how to get friends to move to Signal from Snapchat? I'm a zoomer so pretty much all of my friends use it, I was going to go on an autistic rant about snapchats data harvesting on my story but I decided its probably better not to.
>>79695372Get better friends
>>79695372Normalfags do not care about privacy and security, that's a lost cause.Normalfags follow trends like sheep, show them the Elon Musk tweet and say everyone is picking up Signal now. "You don't want to be left behind do you?"
>>79686835have fun with low quality mp3s
>>79695372honestly some zoomers are more braindead than I've thought, especially the ones who claim to "know computers" lmaoI've had an argument with one of those fags today and he claimed that it was illegal for companies to harvest your data, so that isn't possible. The worst about that is just that is just that fucking smugness some people have about an obviously wrong statement.It's like people are being programmed that anything that goes against the "mainstream" is a right wing extremist conspiracy or some shit like that.
>>79686818>You forgot an important part: BY GOVERNMENT OR OTHER BODY THAT CAN DENY YOUR GENERAL RIGHTS, not "lol, I got banned from twatter".>Please stop pretending you're dumb and just admit you want to be fucking racist and hateful on social media like a dumb little spoiled, hateful child.i am the ceo of (((FAANG))).i am permanently banning you (@transrights29439) from twitter and any other site I find you on.nigger.

>>79689566if people aren't going to give up their big social media for alternatives, they aren't going to give up technology.
>>79696267Hey idiot, nobody is expecting everyone to drop big tech. That being said, if even a decent portion decides to dump platforms like twitter and facebook, that not only badly hurts their revenue, but also diminishes their control on information.Decentralization is the future.
>>79696136>I've had an argument with one of those fags today and he claimed that it was illegal for companies to harvest your data, so that isn't possible. The worst about that is just that is just that fucking smugness some people have about an obviously wrong statement.Put him out of his misery, he's in great pain.
>>79696136yeah I don't think I can convince them to switch because most of them don't give 2 shits about privacy, zucced once again
>>79686818>it's not censorship if i redefine censorship and then get shot by an angry mob!You really aren't this dumb, right?
>>79693189>That's why Parler failed lolParler failed because it used amazon's servers and amazon did not want to host them.
>>79689605>>79689786>imagine saying a mainstream service is good for discovering obscure music. It is.I used to be like you. Then I actually tried Spotify. It's honestly one of the best resources to find music you can't find anywhere else. And if you actually like listening to music.Stop being a poorfag. And don't be a retard like the last guy and say "but torrenting!"

Shyeah bruh, you care so much about privacy. That's why you're here and not one of the altchans that uses in-house non-google captcha and allows anonymizers like VPNs and TOR, right? >>79696136>fucking kids these days reeeeeeeeeeeeAs if soilennials, xoomers, boomers, etc. weren't exactly the same in their teens. The big problem with millenials, particularly the types that congregate here, is they blame zoomers for the same shit they did. Fuck, I remember us laughing at juvenile memes and YTPs back in the day, and now all of you faggots are just screeching at zoomers for finding the same shit funny now. Hypocritical bitches.
>>79691618And then ask yourself a question: do you really need a hookup that badly? If you're looking for a wife material she won't have Instagram and if you're looking for quick hookup - fap and get on with your day
>>79696381I will never support subscription services for entertainment media out of principle.
>>79696464That's a much better response than saying it's not good for the things it is in fact good for.
>>79696399I'm a zoomer myself lol, I don't have any problem with people finding anything funny. It's more like that smug "computer kid" who thinks he's hot shit because he "knows" computers by using Chrome instead of IE and Discord type of person that annoys me.haha xd internet explorer bad only old stupid people use that lol hahah
>>79685603Mastodon is by a raging leftist and pretty sure peertube was started in france.
>>79696581Sounds like hypothetical kid knows a good bit about computers in the modern era, rather than knowing a good bit about outdated shit that has no modern application. Even businesses are phasing out their legacy web apps that require the trash that is IE.
When will they ( you know who I mean) come after 4chin?
>>79696859That's not the point. I just can't fucking stand people feeling superior or knowledgeble because of using certain software. Same with people on plebbit who feel so much better than "winfags" just because they "managed" to install Manjaro. Those people are so obsessed with themselves.It just fucking grinds my gears when a person like that thinks he's some kind of computer expert and lawyer and will argue that Whatsapp ACKHUALY isn't collecting your data because it's illegal. I've already spoken to two people who believe this crap, it's really incredible how oblivious some people are.
Is there something like Freetube available for Android?
>Try to upload a video in LBRY>Have to invest some "coin" from your LBRY walletSo if I spend it, then I cant upload anymore, unless I spend real money to get more wallet? Thats retarded.
>>79686401>3.Spotify is the only viable option for music.Tidal or torrents
>>79697151for me it's amazon music. it's 8 bux with prime.
>>79697214but amazon music is not very good without amazon music HD
The problem with social media alternatives is that the bigcorp is always "better" and the ones you try to convince to move over, will usually just end up using the same social media once again.Take YouTube for example,Sure, peertube exists, but..1. It's too "complicated" for normies and boomers. >What? I have to go to an extra page and *read*?2. Some people love their SSO and big corps are pushing this. (Shit like, log in with google.)Now that they have tasted the sweet fruit of SSO, these lazy asses will likely not use independent services.3. There is no smooth transition.It would be lovely if a user could transfer their data from their big-corp accounts.Like YouTube playlists, Instagram images ... I'm sure these big corps could get some competition, but it would require smart marketing moves, which requires money. I can really not think of many social media that the corporations in OPs images struggle against (then again, I don't really care about the services).I guess the only app/service that took over a corporate app would be Discord taking over Skype.These alternatives would have to do something similar.
>>79697399>mainstream options>betterThe ONLY thing that make mainstream option as big they are is just that most content is there, and people are lazy.
>>79696399>I like forcing people to pay for others' medical needs by raising taxes and shitting on already stagnant and low wagesThe USA is already in the top 10 countries in welfare spending by capita. Where is all this shit going? Just keep the taxes the same, but stop dumping it all straight into the ghetto. Spread it more evenly among every citizen.
>>79697399Better yet, let the people suffer a little more.3 things will happen:1. Boomers will leave tech forever, and maybe brainfucked underage normalfags will be forced to leave because of it's parents.2. Brainfucked normalfags will become a literal zombies, which in turn will trigger the boomers even more.3. A little more clever people will find descentralized and distributed network and they will establish itself there.You just need to do absolutely nothing. If people ask you for alternatives, offer them descentralized and distributed services. If they don't understand, just say they need to understand what the fuck you are talking about or just abandon the internet. Let they have the taste of what they have done to internet.
>>79686564We aren't in a free market. This is a corporatist society. Governemnt contracts, lobbying, bailouts, etc.
You know if all the normies suddenly changed to FOSS they'd still block you schizo-fags. You don't have an audience cause you have nothing useful to say. Half your internet army is paranoid boomers too afraid to leave their home.
I never got this "sticking it to the big man" BS. You jump on board some god damn tech, you help make it popular, then its "jump ship" and on to the next shit to destroy. Firefox is a big example. Retards.
>>79689605>>79689786I've become convinced that the only fags who actually believe this are projecting normies themselves. I've run into quite a few artists that I cannot find much of in my trackers or even on YouTube at times, maybe if I'm lucky they still have some of their discography on Bandcamp at a decent price. That's saying nothing of foreign/non-English music.
>>79686818This is so perfectly smug and wrong that it has to be bait.
>>79686131Luke is such a larping faggot. He knows his shit with Linux and should've just stuck with that instead of talking any retard politics
So... that guy should have been forced to make the cake for the lesbian couple then?
How is guilded? Any opinions?
>>79685603Bait or not, shit like this is why I'm no longer a Leftist.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ufrL0ZTkudE
>>79686289/pol/ should plan an operation to fool the left in to believing that closed-source software is nazi protection; this way Windows might become free software once we mobilise these leftist and those leftist eventually are going to contact leftists in high-ranking positions so that big-tech destroys itselfCom'on we can let this happen&we can do this.
>>79701299/pol/ is just full of Twitter activists, it's very rare instances when they managed to come together to effectivelly pull something like the "ok hand= white power" and fool the retards in media
>tfw my friends all use Snapchat It's infuriating. Shit can't even be emulated, as far as I can tell. And there isn't a way in hell I can convince them to use something else.
>>79685526What's the alternative to Amazon?YouTube at least has PeerTube.
Brick and mortar, which is unfortunate because covid-19. Go early, wear your fucking mask, social distance, use hand sanitizer right after, wash exposed skin when back home. Amazon's so shit I'd rather risk getting covid-19 than use it.
>Go early, wear your fucking mask, social distance, use hand sanitizer right after, wash exposed skin when back home
>Invidious subscriptions still take +8 hours to updateCome on. That is why I have more hope for FreeTube; altough I will still ise Inviduous.
>>79686818For how often people like you post that xkcd comic, you don't seem to get that it applies both ways. If Twitter decides to take actions its consumers don't like, its consumers are free to look for alternatives. There's no requirement that the reason is because Twitter broke the law.
>>79687977>webhosting is impossible because I am a retard
How is Tidal? Still too big tech to be used? I really want to get off of Spotify.

>>79685526So, like, people legitimately care about this shit?Re-examine your personal lives, anons, please.
>social media found to be as addictive as hard drugs*crickets*>social media is being heavily influenced by local govts to incite mass genocide in (X third world country here)*crickets*>social media is being usurped by Russian and Iranian troll farms to facilitate brexit*crickets*>social media is being usurped by Russian and Iranian troll farms to facilitate trump*crickets*So only when they initiate a pseudo-crackdown on white redneck racists purely out of publicity is when you care.
>>79702066I said nothing like that and 100% agree with you. Twitter can ban you for whatever reason they want, specifically if you're a racist, hateful fucking twat like the Trumpfucks and Trump himself, but you can indeed go look for an alternative, which if it attracts enough idiots can be shut down by someone else because they don't want that sort of talk. Freedom of speech is limited to the freedom to not harm others, and being a hateful, racist, violence-inciting, shitcunt that directly attacks people, lies to the harm of others, and so on, isn't protected by free speech to begin with. But if some outlier wants to provide a safe space for such speech to occur and its providers and other users are okay with this, then there's basically nothing to stop them.Twitter didn't break the law; Twitter just did what they though was right to protect its users, and they're well within their rights to do so. The only time it becomes illegal and crosses a line is when you provide an informed, intelligent viewpoint on something that doesn't provoke, attack, insult, or otherwise cause others harm and you are restrained and/or silenced by your government because of what you said. This is what freedom of speech is, not "baww twitter banned me".If you don't understand that simple fucking concept, maybe you need to get some more education. There are people around the world who are forcibly silenced by their governments by threats, imprisonment, and death for what they said and here you fucking privileged racists sit crying over fucking goddamn TWITTER not letting Trump's racist, hateful ass post his bullshit.Grow the fuck up, /g/. This is the end of it. This is how things are, not the deluded psychopathic bullshit in your mind.
>>79702099>covid deniers are the scum of this fucking planet.
>>79691618I like how you pretend anyone would actually talk to you. Cute.
>>79702225>The only time it becomes illegal and crosses a line is when you provide an informed, intelligent viewpoint on something that doesn't provoke, attack, insult, or otherwise cause others harm and you are restrained and/or silenced by your government because of what you said.So the implication is that the government can restrict speech that isn't an "informed, intelligent viewpoint," as long as someone is insulted. For someone claiming to be concerned about oppressed minorities, you sure do expect the government to gatekeep speech. > There are people around the world who are forcibly silenced by their governments by threats, imprisonment, and death for what they saidSo you should emphatically support users who feel they are being silenced finding new platforms that don't kowtow to power and popular opinion, right? What's good for the goose is good for the gander, the same platforms and privacy methodologies can be used by those who are oppressed for their views.
