My vote ban u/actuallynot

[–]Optimus85 10 insightful - 5 fun10 insightful - 4 fun11 insightful - 5 fun -  (6 children)

Seconded.

[–]JasonCarswell 10 insightful - 6 fun10 insightful - 5 fun11 insightful - 6 fun -  (5 children)

I'd be willing to make it all or nothing. Vote me out - or vote socks and ActuallyNot out. Forever. I'd honour the community decision. They wouldn't likely as they're here being very unpopular for more reasons than just trolling and they may come back as another alias.

Of course, that's not how SaidIt works. But you never know if an exception, or two, could be made.

[–]Optimus85 5 insightful - 3 fun5 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 3 fun -  (2 children)

Nah. You're more valuable to the site than the two of them combined.

/u/JasonCarswell is constantly bringing down the discussion, and adding nothing to the discussion.

my vote is ban nobody. but u/jasoncarswell actually posts useful shit.

[–]Airbus320 2 insightful - 3 fun2 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 3 fun -  (1 child)

Yes, unlike you

[–]mahavishnunj 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

just did a 30 second review of your posts/replies. 100% nonsense bullshit. i would love for you to elaborate on your reply here. this should be good.

[–]AmericanMuskrat 2 insightful - 3 fun2 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

I second banning nobody.

[–]x0x7 5 insightful - 4 fun5 insightful - 3 fun6 insightful - 4 fun -  (0 children)

Censor the censorer's. Calling someone out for lying when they are lying isn't bringing the quality of discussion down. It's putting your counter on rails to keep them in the lane of reason.

[–]AmericanMuskrat 15 insightful - 7 fun15 insightful - 6 fun16 insightful - 7 fun -  (0 children)

Jason adds character. I think Saidit would be worse off without him in general. Y'all should just block each other, not everyone here gets along and that's okay.

[–]jet199 13 insightful - 9 fun13 insightful - 8 fun14 insightful - 9 fun -  (8 children)

The unfortunate thing about saidit being a male heavy forum is all the bitching and drama.

[–]AmericanMuskrat 8 insightful - 5 fun8 insightful - 4 fun9 insightful - 5 fun -  (3 children)

These tend to be some of the most popular posts. People love drama.

Sad butt true. I'm glad most think it's a joke today.

And annoying as it is, not just for me and you and readers, it does expose the visitors, newbs, and rare to casual users to the infiltration agents of chaos that infect all social media and their techniques.

Trans-Van

Today I was checking out a prospective off-grid homesteading prepping location. Much potential, lots of work. On the edge of the field/glade surrounded by forest was a Trans-Van like that, parked nosed into the woods with the back open to the field. At one point I'm sure it would have made a terrific tiny/mobile home. Today I was afraid of getting too close to whatever it might smell like.

Travelling around the country free from the cares and worries of the world sounds like it would suit you :)

[–]JasonCarswell 2 insightful - 5 fun2 insightful - 4 fun3 insightful - 5 fun -  (0 children)

I used to. A lot. But there was always something missing from my life. Now I have a lot more missing from my life (material things, youth, romance, etc.) - but through finding a greater contextual understanding of power I've found a more profound purpose to life in Resisting Global Tyranny™. Life now has deeper meaning.

Have you let Resisting Global Tyranny™ into your heart? Praise RGT™!

[–]Iloveyounowfuckofff 14 insightful - 4 fun14 insightful - 3 fun15 insightful - 4 fun -  (0 children)

How about ban nobody and just ignore or block people you don’t like. If those people continue to badger tell em to fuck off. It is unpleasant to use such language but some people need to take the hint that their disrespectful brand of disingenuous time wasting is insufferable.

Carswell actually contributes to making this site interesting. He’s got spirit. OP is the sort of redditor who makes me happy I stopped visiting reddit. He should go back.

[–]Basghetti 12 insightful - 5 fun12 insightful - 4 fun13 insightful - 5 fun -  (3 children)

You reap what you sow. If you have problems having discussions with him, block him. The rest of the users here are likely not going to be sympathetic to your argument, especially considering that you've rubbed many the wrong way.

[–]ActuallyNot[S] 2 insightful - 3 fun2 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 3 fun -  (2 children)

You reap what you sow.

I tend to provide sources and sound reasoning. /u/JasonCarswell doesn't do that. He just drags down the discussion on the pyramid of debate when presented with facts.

If you have problems having discussions with him, block him.

Good idea. However, its approach is to start threads like this one.

The rest of the users here are likely not going to be sympathetic to your argument, especially considering that you've rubbed many the wrong way.

If facts or reasoned arguments rub you the wrong way, you probably just need to consider your beliefs. Cognitive dissonance is a bitch.

[–]Basghetti 10 insightful - 6 fun10 insightful - 5 fun11 insightful - 6 fun -  (0 children)

He drags down discussion, but generally it's only bad when he encounters you, socks or sometimes Chipit. I've seen him provide helpful links, but I'm not paying attention for the most part unless he's talking to me or says something that piques my interest.

I can't tell if you keep referring to him as an "it" in an attempt to dehumanize and insult him or what. Blocking is definitely the easiest route to save yourself some irritation either way.

Your arguments aren't based in facts, your arguments are based on information that you've read, processed, and regurgitated and framed in an abrasive format-- like the writing equivalent of resting bitchface. The reliability of that information is as questionable as the information that you refute. I disregard most of the videos out, because I don't give a shit what some scientist or medical professional says during a 15 minutes of fame interview, I want to see their studies and hold them up next to previously performed studies about similar diseases/disease responses/etc.. Perusing studies brings up a separate issue in that peer review isn't necessarily reliable anymore either and can easily just be signed off on, which is disheartening but ya know. The only real way to genuinely verify data is to perform experimentation on your own. Cognitive dissonance goes both ways though, and you're clearly not impervious to it so why act self righteous?

Fuck /u/ActuallyNot. Look at the guy's post history. He's a cuck shill for vaccines, suckling the Covid tit. This is what paid shills do. They try to behave like a normal person but their goal is to:

  1. Shill for the cause.

  2. Disrupt meaningful dialogue.

  3. Discredit and fracture cohesive communities.

Look how he created this thread, fleshed it out with links, went in to detail and tries to divide people in to vax/anti vax. I already blocked him but sadly I enjoy the comical value of what shilly niggers, jews and faggots have to say.

[–]ActuallyNot[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (7 children)

Fuck /u/ActuallyNot.

If you want. Get his consent first of course.

Look at the guy's post history. Look closely. Claims supported by sources. Appropriate disbelief at drunk-deeply-from-the-coolaid posts. Short with racists.

He's a cuck shill for vaccines, suckling the Covid tit.

By which you mean he points out that vaccines are very positive overall for human health, and particularly important for overcoming covid?

This is what paid shills do. They try to behave like a normal person but their goal is to:

Shill for the cause.

Disrupt meaningful dialogue.

Discredit and fracture cohesive communities.

No one is going to come to saidit to shill unless the traffic increases several orders of magnitude. I create meaningful dialogue. /u/JasonCarswell is the one disrupting it.

And his continual, repeated dragging down the pyramid of debate is the sort of thing that is discrediting this community.

Look how he created this thread, fleshed it out with links, went in to detail and tries to divide people in to vax/anti vax.

I didn't notice I did that. What have i done that attempts to divide people into vax and anti-vax?

I already blocked him but sadly I enjoy the comical value of what shilly niggers, jews and faggots have to say.

And now we see the racists cunts coming out to keep the community here down.

True.

to keep the community here down.

Actually, the community won't be kept down and is quite capable of judging for themselves who the "racist cunts", shills, liars, and idiots are without being kept down. If misinformation, bad ideas, and stupidity were Actually contagious we'd have a great reason to censor, ban, and quarantine you, ActuallyNot.

Another case in point. This chatbot or troll never engages in discussion.

Time to ban him and lift the level of discourse in here, and while enabling positive influences to culture a bit of rationality.

What haven't you done to shill bullshit?

Provide reliable sources for my information and rational argument.

You've found a forum sufficiently free speech that you can be a racist cunt and not be banned.

The nature of such forums is you get called a racist cunt when you are a racist cunt.

Calling out racist cunts isn't an ulterior motive. It's the only correct response.

Either way...blocking you now.

No he's not. Look at this submission of his.

This post is not though.

Apart from blagging on for less, and linking to actual evidence, it's pretty much identical to a post by the person who you claim is for free speech.

Bias?

[–]JasonCarswell 13 insightful - 7 fun13 insightful - 6 fun14 insightful - 7 fun -  (5 children)

I'll take all the money you give me, but you can't read this if you've still blocked me intolerant of the free speech you claim to want to support. Your reason for blocking me was so trivial and inconsequential I've forgotten it.

I'm only rude to the two people who push the most lies, authoritarian bullshit, and shill for big pharma, often while sealioning: socks and ActuallyNot.

Readers can decide for themselves if socks, ActuallyNot, or I are legit or not...

SaidIt Survey: Ban /u/socks and /u/ActuallyNot or keep them around?

If anyone is blind, I'll spell it out for you: This is a fucking global propaganda war to depopulate this debt-slave planet. Governments are taking insane liberties and idiots blindly follow - and it will get much much worse. STABs are minions of the enemy globalists. Fuck all the sealions, shills, trolls, and bots pushing bullshit.

I'm not active much lately because I'm off-grid prepping and organizing rallies locally - and can prove it.

What the fuck are the prolific nay-sayers socks and ActuallyNot actually doing besides peddling bullshit?

In a couple weeks I'll be back for a bit to will work further on /s/SaidItCommunity, including the creation of wikis and other tools to tally the lies of socks and ActuallyNot and other malevolent users here - but to do it for the edification of all users, to do it FOTPACH (fair, open, transparent, peaceful, accountable, consistent, honest), and to avoid corrupt extremist problems or witch hunts.

That's not the point. The point is you're continually dragging down the pyramid of debate. The rules say you should be banned for that.

And they're good rules. The quality of the discussion in here would be very good without you around, throwing insults instead of discussion points, and always taking the russian propaganda lines of trying to get western democracies to extend the impact of the pandemic on their people and economies.

It would be okay if you were genuine, and could support your position. But you just spread bullshit then drag the discussion down to insults.

The community is good without you.

Moot and very debatable.

BULLSHIT.

throwing insults

LIE.

I speak my truth and if you take insult that's on you. Stop being such a shitty liar and I'll stop calling it out. Chipit stopped. You can too.

and always taking the russian propaganda lines of trying to get western democracies to extend the impact of the pandemic on their people and economies.

LOL!

NEVER-ENDING BULLSHIT LIES.

It would be okay if you were genuine, and could support your position.

I am, and have, and do. I don't have time to argue endlessly with sealioning shitty liars and shilling for big phrama like you. Thus I keep it brief with timesucks.

But you just spread bullshit then drag the discussion down to insults.

Find my bullshit.
Find where I've insulted you.
You can't.
Like a super sensitive snowflake you can't handle being called a liar when you lie or a shill when you push big pharma bullshit. Only your negative actions describe you in a negative light.

If I wanted to insult you, you would never forget it - and it could be even worse if you weren't cowardly and anonymous. Show us a photo.

The community is good without you.

Division and censorship is what tyranny, their minions, and shills would like, but SaidIt is not made of sheeple and snowflakes.

Actually, go fuck yourself, your sealioning, and your lies, authoritarianism, and big pharma propaganda.

You do nothing of the sort. You just say "BULLSHIT" and "LIES" when presented with an argument that goes against the dangerous lies that you are attempting to spread.

Case in point. No premise. No reasoning. Just dragging down the discussion, plain and simple.

I am, and have, and do.

You do not. See the links in the top thread.

Find my bullshit.

There's some in this very post.

Find where I've insulted you.

You can't.

I just did. Would you like to go through the examples one by one?

If I wanted to insult you, you would never forget it

Oooh! Gosh!

What a reasoned response, high on the pyramid of debate. "I'm not interested in reasoned argument, but I could insult you on a minor internet forum SO MUCH."

Really?

Can I ask how old you are?

  • and it could be even worse if you weren't cowardly and anonymous. Show us a photo.

Sure. You go first.

So that's why you've tried banning me.

NEVER-ENDING BULLSHIT LIES.

Case in point. No premise. No reasoning. Just dragging down the discussion, plain and simple.

Actually, it's not dragging down discussion. Yes, it's plain and simple as it points out your deceptions and manipulations as a sealioning nay-sayer who's here to timesuck all our energy away from being more productive elsewhere. You damn well know it takes more energy to debunk stupid statements - and that's why you're always vomiting stupid bullshit all over SaidIt. Timesucking all the way.

I am, and have, and do.

You do not.

LIAR.

I have refuted you in detail in the past, but no longer indulge in wasted discourse with your obvious shilling behaviour, and I continue to do with others, though the last couple/few weeks I've been busy on other fronts resisting the tyranny that you so wholeheartedly support - so I haven't been as engaged lately. I'd say I'm wasting my time with you again here, but this is more for the readers than the amateur/professional liars.

Find my bullshit.

There's some in this very post.

Lazy.

Sure. You go first.

I already have, many times. Here I am. Take your best shot.

I'm in this very recent post several times if you want to see video of me (I have yet to finish watching it), though I didn't speak at this rally because I was also escorting a senior, a disabled senior, and a blind guy, bought them dinner (despite being poor as fuck) and drove them an hour to their homes:
/s/StandUpWindsor/comments/8gvq/freedom_rally_in_leamington_ontario_with_special/

What the fuck do you do for your communities?

Division and censorship is what tyranny, their minions, and shills would like

So that's why you've tried banning me.

Fight fire with fire. You peddle proven lies, shill for big pharma poisons, and are a divisive nay-sayer in this community. This is war and you are an inauthentic infiltrator.

You intentionally fail to comprehend as others do that there are obvious limits to the "free speech" on SaidIt - so they remove the trash - spam, asstrolls, and disinfo agents for perpetually dragging down discussion WITH EVERYONE. Whereas I only go refute the most prolific, obvious, and worst shills of disruption, socks and ActuallyNot.

Which are you; in favour of tyranny, a minion or a shill?

I can't be both one of them AND be against them. As I said, this is war, this is conflict, and you represent the enemy. Either you're daft or disingenuous - and it seems obvious it's the latter.

Actually, go fuck yourself, your sealioning, and your lies, authoritarianism, and big pharma propaganda.

Another case in point. This is why this community would be so much better without you.

You can't handle some bad words and harsh truth? Maybe you should leave and find a totalitarian safe space where you won't melt.

[–]ActuallyNot[S] 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (3 children)

"Shill" for wearing masks?

So you're suggesting that there's someone making these $3 masks, and they've got together with everyone else making $3 masks, and they're concerned that although the vast majority of people wear masks, there's a few people who really don't care about other people, and they figure that to get the extra 3% of the market, they'll employ people to go to forums visited by literally tens of people and point out the actual fucking science of how airborne transmission is significantly reduced by wearing masks.

Then they hope that some part of those tens of people will be convinced by the reason, when they never used reason to come to the belief in the first place, and some part of them will by their brand. And so they pay me to point out the blatantly obvious on obscure forums?

Is that genuinely what you believe?

Because if so, you need to lay off the cool-aid, mate.

But how does that relate to not being able to tell a grand conspiracy theory.

I reckon I've got a rough idea. Flat earth. 911 truth. Pizzagate. Moon hoax. Vaccines aren't vaccines, they change your genes. That sort of crazy.

Thanks for this, /u/ActuallyNot . I've just seen it. Excellent points. If someone constantly breaks the rules, I agree it's important to make a point of it, especially when the rest of us are required to follow the rules (I have 2 "strikes" and will be banned with the 3rd strike, merely for saying twice what Carswell has said 100s of times. Not that we should be shocked that Carswell can continue bullying. But it's worth addressing the bullying on Saidit, for many reasons. Saidit would probably grow if the bullying was checked more often, though those of us who are bullied naturally lose all interest in making a point of this, or bothering to care about Saidit's future. Months ago I defended Carswell, diogenes, Muskrat and others when they were banned, writing quite a bit to the admins and community about them. I wanted to see their approaches on Saidit, even when we didn't agree (especially because we didn't agree). But because I've been rather honest with Carswell about his issues, this is one of the reasons he obviously hates me and is on record trying to get me banned on many occasions. That's of course his problem to worry about. Would I still want him to be banned. I don't know. His bullying keeps Saidit from growing, but he's not the only person bullying. Do I want Saidit to grow? I don't know. If it did grow, would be a leading spreader of right-wing and alt right disinformation propaganda? Seems so. Moreover, is Saidit truly a "free speech" website? Is it truly "non-partisan"? Does it really address corruption, if indeed we see so much propaganda in the posts (paid for by a corrupt influencer racket funded by GOP PACs, donors and corporations). As with any community, there will be odd developments and contradictions, and if Saidit does grow, I think we'll see - by necessity - more interesting approaches to these developments (for better or worse). It can be an interesting place, minus the bullying.

what Carswell has said 100s of times

Lies.

that Carswell can continue bullying

Lies.

Calling out your whiny bullshit is NOT bullying.

But it's worth addressing the bullying on Saidit, for many reasons.

True.

As long as you lie, I won't care about what happens to you.

Soon, I aim to work on some /s/SaidItCommunity stuff, that can also apply to other forums (ie. Cassandra Team projects and more), focused on bottom-up decentralized social management rather than top-down dictates. Among the many areas of potential, this includes making open transparent lists and records to collect evidence on problematic users to not only build up cases for banishment if necessary, but also to help clearly educate visitors, newbs, and rare to casual users to the infiltration agents of chaos that infect all social media, as well as their techniques. Naturally I welcome folks to make a list on me if they like. Critically important: this must not turn into an unjust witch hunt, immediately or via slow corruption over time.

If you are interested, socks, you may participate in these discussions that may impact your future, to help ensure they are fair, and maybe you might actually contribute something good to this world. For starters we need good ideas and decent neutral terms for our social-media-self-management projects, including these "Caution Lists" for lack of a better name.

Further, if you are interested in actually developing some reasonable ideas to address actual bullying (or more broadly and simply, civil discourse), you may contribute your concepts for SaidIt Community consideration.

Saidit would probably grow if the bullying was checked more often, though those of us who are bullied naturally lose all interest in making a point of this, or bothering to care about Saidit's future.

IFIFY:

Saidit would probably grow if the lying was checked more often, though those of us who are liars naturally lose all interest in making a point of this, or bothering to care about Saidit's future.

I've been rather honest with Carswell about his issues, this is one of the reasons he obviously hates me

False.

What issues? If you have issues with me, they're still your issues. See a therapist, preferably one with expertise with compulsive liars.

False.

I don't hate you.

I hate your sealioning, your lies, your authoritarianism, your big pharma propaganda, and your prolific, distracting timesuckage.

Stop lying and I stop calling out your bullshit.

and is on record trying to get me banned on many occasions.

True.

Or simply raising the question IF socks should be banned.

His bullying keeps Saidit from growing, but he's not the only person bullying.

Lies.

Stop lying and people will stop calling out your bullshit, which in /s/Victimhood terms you call "bullying".

As with any community, there will be odd developments and contradictions, and if Saidit does grow, I think we'll see - by necessity - more interesting approaches to these developments (for better or worse).

True.

/s/SaidItCommunity stuff might be some more interesting approaches, odd developments, and some contradictions - for the better, to reduce the worse.

It can be an interesting place, minus the bullying.

IFIFY:

It can be an interesting place, minus the whiny lying.

It's not lying or whining - it's merely a bit of history - of which many on Saidit are well aware. Repeated attempts to gaslight and discredit users like me (by repeatedly telling us we're lying) is, by the way, another form of bullying. It pushes people away from Saidit, as they don't want to read this kind of hostility, or indeed be the potential victims of it. This is just an obvious observation, nothing more. Don't worry about it.

[–]JasonCarswell 4 insightful - 4 fun4 insightful - 3 fun5 insightful - 4 fun -  (3 children)

I offer a golden opportunity to contribute constructively to SaidIt Community, the fucking goal is wide open, you could take a shot, but you just whine about an unfair playing field. Pathetic.

[–]socks 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (2 children)

Jason - seriously - people tend to avoid bullies, or if we must confront them, it's not because we really want to. If however someone is into S&M, that's another story. You might enjoy sadism, IDK.

[–]JasonCarswell 5 insightful - 4 fun5 insightful - 3 fun6 insightful - 4 fun -  (1 child)

It seems you're a masochistic glutton for punishment, and argumentative curmudgeon with no life, or work for big pharma, otherwise why would you just prolifically hang out on SaidIt perpetually sealioning and lying making you so clearly unpopular here. This post has clearly been read and responded to, but obviously we know you two are a bad joke.

Do you hear my whining and crying like a snowflake about you calling me a bully? Fuck no. Your bullshit and lies don't carry any weight with me, but I still call it out for those who don't know you. YOU are the malevolent misinformation you pretend to fight.

Now, go fuck yourself.

[–]socks 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

So your response is - more bullying and potential paranoid schizophrenia - as usual. No wonder others want you banned. I also see potential evidence here of you voting for yourself. In any event, keep it up Jason. Watch the impact this has on Saidit (with the sadistic bulling, coupled with schizo - "come join our sub, and take more bullying because you deserve it"! - and visitors making the usual comments about Saidit as a small schizo right-wing place. Saidit can be better than this.). Don't bother responding to me again. You obviously cannot cope with my responses, hence the bullying.

If someone constantly breaks the rules

Do you mean you or Jason?

[–]socks 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (6 children)

I refer to the alt accounts that returned 2 days later to upvote your comment.

[–]AmericanMuskrat 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (5 children)

That's the kind of thing my nemesis claims on Reddit. We've been fighting for years. It started because she figured nobody would ever upvote the things I said so I must have been creating accounts to upvote myself. We've been fighting for years. She says things like... Shit, I don't really pay attention. But then I say things like your bf killed himself to get away from you -- which is totally true. He did it right in front of her. She's the kind of woman guys are dying to avoid.

You can't be my nemesis though, only hot chicks may apply.

[–]JasonCarswell 3 insightful - 3 fun3 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 3 fun -  (2 children)

I get called back to posts 2 days later by comment responses and I double upvote everyone except the shills. It's how I see who I've already read, and it is community support on this "dead" site - and it's faster than actually deciding who is "insightful" or "fun" (unless they really don't deserve one). Does it skew the scores much? Does it matter?

[–]AmericanMuskrat 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

It's not just you, I revisit old threads too. Socks just thinks people target him. It's understandable.

[–]JasonCarswell 1 insightful - 2 fun1 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Socks just thinks people target him. It's understandable.

He's idiotic with blinders, or is shilling, and if not shilling and if he just wakes up, he can stop the lying and thus stop the attacks. We're targeting the lies, but he refuses to see he's a liar.

[–]socks 3 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 1 fun4 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

No offence mate, but no one should blame her/himself for another's suicide, no matter how relevant.

[–]AmericanMuskrat 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

No offense taken. She literally drove him to suicide. I know, you're supposed to say it's not their fault, but people who do that -- kill themselves in front of another person -- do that for a reason. It was totally her fault.

I have 2 "strikes" and will be banned with the 3rd strike, merely for saying twice what Carswell has said 100s of times.

Whoa! Really?

I thought that this place was attracting the conspiracy theory nutjobs and the 13 year old edgelords who say "nier nier ni**er cuck cuck cuck" because they weren't tolerated in most forums. I didn't know that they're actively weeding out rational voices here.

[–]socks 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

Yes - sadly. If people complain enough about you to mods and admins, you can get a strike for "name-calling". I called someone an asshole (which I can do on Reddit), and 7 days later, after several complaints to an admin, I got a strike. (Edit: and I've been called every name in the book, on a regular basis, thoug recently enjoyed the title of 'malfunctioning meme'. For the serious hatred comments, I can select 'report' - under the comment - but I don't think this matters much, so I leave things as they are. You can read in the 'moderation log' at the bottom right when a reported comment was 'approved' to remain, or on rare occasion, 'removed'.)

[–]Node 3 insightful - 3 fun3 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

Go back to Reddit. Worship your non-Whites and shill for all your bullshit among the losers who like that sort of bottom-tier crap.

[–]forscher 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

This is bait.
