Feel free to use this to advertise NAB and stuff:
- Freedom of speech, only illegal content is censored.
- Spaces are planned to be more customizable than subreddits, they already have several settings subreddits don't have.
- Open source code at github.com/notabugio/notabug.
- Decentralization, you can create peers with different looks, features and defaults that still have the same content.
- You can post anonymously.
- Sidebar topic-specific chat.
- Run by a notable advocate of free speech, unlikely to start censorship (and if it does, you can just move to a different peer).
Q: Why not other alternatives?
Many of the other altenatives don't support free speech, and if they do, they have other problems. Here are some of the downsides of other platforms:
Voat doesn't allow you to post submissions or make more than 10 comments in a day if you have less than 10 CCP and has restrictions on how much you can upvote and downvote based on your CCP, and considering that on Voat, downvote tends to be used as a disagree button (just like on Reddit), you can effectively get censored by the userbase.
Saidit's policy of removing only comments which are dragging discussion downward the debate pyramid is interesting, but that's not really free speech, now is it? It's a bit vague too, and that could present a slippery slope towards censorship of arguments considered "bad", regardless of actual quality.
Raddle will censor you if you aren't a SJW, enough said.
Steemit incorporates money into submissions, which is not good IMO.
Phuks censors hate speech, which is actually worse than Reddit, which at least pretends to not censor non-violent hate speech. Also, it doesn't have any features Reddit doesn't have, save for public modlogs.
Poal has the same anti-hate speech rules as Phuks, althrough it doesn't seem to actually enforce them. More worryingly, some of the messages displayed next to the logo are hateful, meaning that the site itself can be considered hateful, not just the userbase. (one of the current messages is "Oy Vey Goyim!", for example)
Prismo is looking great, and is definitely something you should look into. However, NAB's spaces are superior to the traditional sub system Prismo has IMO.
