They shouldn’t even need to run a peer for what they want, sounds like a domain and static web host that won’t shut them down would be enough. Just need to improve the build configuration to let you specify default space easier.

    I’m pretty elated that the comments pages are coping so well with the drama.

    But yeah I hear you and taking all feedback under consideration.

      A modest proposal: front page compromiseby

      Personally I hate sites like this that avoid content on the frontpage like that.

      But that said I’ve had similar thoughts about maybe having the frontpage be a listing of spaces but I think this would likely lead to a higher bounce rate than just having interesting content up front.

      Similar to voting, if we want spaces to have follower counts the follows need to be public, we could likely pretty easily have a voted listing of spaces though. If people are interested in this idea mock out what it could look like.

        Seems to only be selectively applied. There are more recent admin comment removals that don’t get that public label.

          I don’t see it as disenfranchisement so long as the list of frontpage topics is sufficiently broad.

          I think a topic blacklist approach in the service of avoiding nsfw content could possibly be a workable approach for the front page.

            To avoid a default frontpage that will scare people away or get them in trouble for browsing.

            This approach of SFW by default with the option to go as crazy as you want is how you avoid getting a site blocked by content filters.

              Spam prevention measure, someone was crapflooding long posts. Upvoting it will expand it.

                Been a lot going on.

                I disagree that it should be the default but I can see why you would disagree. I didn't sidestep the idea of approved topics I asked if specifically disallowed topics would be better in your opinion with the goal of making the frontpage sfw?

                  Isn't the link to t/all easily found and isn't that effectively the same thing?

                    So do you think the frontpage would be better with specific nsfw topics and domains excluded rather than the current topic list approach?

                      I think all censorship should be deplored. My position is that bits are not a bug – that we should create communications technologies that allow people to send whatever they like to each other. And when people put their thumbs on the scale and try to say what can and can’t be sent, we should fight back – both politically through protest and technologically through software

                      The frontpage isn't preventing anything from being sent seen or read.

                        No, it will likely use the declarative listing language I'm building out for spaces.

                        Click around and view the "listing source" in the sidebar of listings, especially the spaces linked to from my profile and notabug.io's profile to see how customization will work in general.
