Boy! I'm doomed. The only thing going for me is that I have health issues. Beside that, according to the first chart, I'm privileged as fuck. I just realized what a bad person I am! Am I going to be able to look at myself again in the mirror?
Admin replies on Jun 22, 2019:
Yes, one of the Intersectionality movement's goal is make you feel guilty so that you will be sympathetic to their policy positions. Is there a way to reason with this movement?

Yes... it's completely up the group host. I set the IDW group restrictions to Level 5+ so the posts come from members who've been around a while. By default, any member (even those not a group member) can make posts.

Admin replies on Jun 12, 2019:
Sorry, he's wrong. FWIW, I'm also a business person... his argument was basically "IF we are to see TEN+ feet of ocean rise in the next 40 years, why would any bank underwrite loans for business/etc around the coastline?". Fair enough IF that's what science is saying but it's not (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sea_level_rise). Oceans are currently rising about 1/8"/year (and accelerating) or about 1 foot in the next 40 years. The longest financing for building projects is about 30 years. Most cities besides Miami can handle 1 foot rise. Also, the Earth has been around for 4B years... not 13.8B years.

Or access to comment on those materials only if you are a doner user....
Admin replies on Jun 9, 2019:
Content producers would have control to charge access for posts... But for the first phase, it'll be 100% voluntary. Our implementation would be so that we use the content producers merchant info. Later, we could use a third party to hold the CC info so that if stripe/etc, terminate them, they may still be able to process recurring charges.

Admin replies on May 20, 2019:
@EdNason Correct. The IDW groups are for posts that are specific to the IDW personality or on topics they often address. Since for new members who have not groups pick, we show the posts of all the IDW groups... and if someone posts the same thing in each IDW group, they show up multiple times. For non-IDW groups, we sometimes let a few posts get cross posted (typically if they're the moderator).

Has any thought been given to adding Russell Brand to this site/collection? While I am pretty moderate with conservative leanings, I find his mind quite refreshing and borderline revolutionary... like most of the IDW "founding fathers."
Admin replies on Apr 29, 2019:
He's written some insightful books. You can create a group for him at level 4.

I feel it is necessary for the website to provide a clear and definite mission statement, one that is clearly displayed before accessing content, the statement should outline several undeniable tenants essentially a bill of rights. You should define the site as a privately held public utility. You ...
Admin replies on Apr 29, 2019:
Wonderful idea - especially as we work out the balance of full expression and limits. We're currently trying to balance the positive image of the IDW public figures and the content of non-related posts. May take a week or so to know the next steps. Thanks!

I'd would rather NOT see posts from groups that I have not chosen to join.

We are only showing IDW groups regardless if you're a member. For thoses, just click the "hide" buttons to never see them again.

RealSamB comments on Apr 28, 2019:
Your restrictions on speech and content are very minimal compared to Twitter, Youtube, and Facebook, and I thank you for that. Please continue to make a point of not becoming Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in February 2019: "I Don’t Believe That We Can Afford To Take A Neutral Stance Anymore"
Admin replies on Apr 29, 2019:
It depends on what "neutral" means. If one had facts that suggest that the "neutral" position is not good for the future of the country, Dorsey needs to start with that. It seems that if we assume Dorsey is a smart person, we'd have to believe the motivation for his deplatforming actions is that he has some facts to suggest those who he's deplatforming are doing something bad for the future. I would be interested to know what facts suggest this.

Thanks for the encouragement. We are nudging the site in an attempt to get the right balance of expression and direction.

EdNason comments on Apr 28, 2019:
Ben's brand not sure what that is. Secondly as a very active supporter and fan, would we be commenting on topic Ben discussed on his Daily Wire youtube channel. Thirdly are you looking for a lock step "homer" or someone that posts their mind?
Admin replies on Apr 28, 2019:
We're prefer posts that mirror the posts that Ben does on his own channels vs provide personal commentary. Think of it more as helping Ben get his message to fans. Non-IDW tagged groups are better suited for personal opinions. Thank - great question!
This posting in groups only is a really bad idea...

I have to admit, I’m not enjoying the site as much.

Which part do you like more: posting posts or reading the ones that we selected for you? You get more control of what posts you see by joining the groups of interest.

Troy_Alias comments on Apr 26, 2019:
If you don't mind my asking, what is this 'new rule' I am seeing referred to? I am new to this site. I assume you were able to post outside of groups before ( ? ) - how was that implemented?
Admin replies on Apr 27, 2019:
@BooRadley not entirely... we got 100s of posts per day and had to decide on each if they were interesting enough to go on the main page, category pages, etc. This review process opens us to issues as well as tedious for a free website. Groups let us delegate the first line responsibility to members to pick which posts are most important.

DrN1 comments on Apr 26, 2019:
Agreed its kind of shit, and the peasants are revolting too!
Admin replies on Apr 27, 2019:
This site is a work in progress as we build things, see how the community responses (we had problems with posts in the general forum that, while not technically ban worthy, didn't reflect well on the IDW), and try something else. We'll try to better communicate this more.

Admin replies on Apr 27, 2019:
Thanks for the feedback. We're just experimenting with different tools right now... we can put back the general forums one we sort out group moderators. How about join some groups that are different from your echo chamber? Isn't that the point?

Admin replies on Apr 19, 2019:
There are two locations where people can click to view fans (who liked your content) and followers (who are following your new posts). We show Fans first, and then Followers at the top if there are no fans. If there are no fans or followers or if the member has set a toggle setting to not show these links, we don't put links at the top. I, and other members, see both Fans and Follower links on your profile

I try to live in my homeland Sweden, but it's getting more and more horrible for every year. My work is within the Swedish Lutheran Church (former "State Church"), which since the last decades has been totally overtaken by leftists/postmodernists/christianity haters/islam lovers.

I've heard Sweden has some of the toughest anti-free-speech laws in western Europe. Is it true that the media is prohibited to list any stats based on ethnicity or religion?

That's not what I see on Google (tested it in 2 places). Memes can be dangerous if not true. What do you see when you do this search?
