Reddit has permanently suspended Project Veritas's accountby go1dfishin politics

I think certain bans reach a level of newsworthiness where it makes sense to report on them on different platforms.

In the case of a whistleblower/journalistic organization getting censored I think that's worth bringing wider attention to.

    I think it more likely happened before this (after pinterest release) and was just noticed now.

      What does the '1%' mean to you?in ask

      []go1dfish -0 points

      Came here to say pretty much this ^ particularly Lesterland.

      To me the 1% refers to the subset of the population that government is actually responsive to. It's an unavoidable result of authoritarian government particularly at large scale. As a matter of information theory, a central decision maker has to compress/discard input from the masses to make decisions for the masses.

          ^ this is correct.

          Highly recommend using password manager/generator

          I've considered changing the signup process to be more like a crypto wallet and generate a long passphrase for people but I fear that might add too much friction for people.

            In practice it will be impossible for client developers (think phone apps) to block gab unless they switch to explicitly whitelisting supported instances.

            I think access to phone apps is the main thing gab is hoping to get here, as so much social use is on mobile.

              that would require sending all new user passwords to them or to the server whereas currently your password never leaves your machine.

                Also I'm less worried about this scenario than I am someone re-using a weak password here and it being used to compromise other accounts.

                  As long as it only applies to you and you're ok with it being public yes we could.

                      How many people would register a domain name for their space if it didn't require any further hosting?by go1dfishin notabug

                      []go1dfish -0 points

                      The main downside is one of security culture/trust. If you access a space through a domain you are trusting the owner of that domain name not to direct you to a malicious frontend that steals your password.

                      Browser extension based logins, or electron based app clients would alleviate this, as would just accessing the spaces normally.

                      Also, it would be possible to still use these as short-names within notabug.io with something like notabug.io/s/nab.cx

                      This pushes off the problem of short name ownership to DNS where it's already solved and I really like that aspect.

                        Wouldn't that prevent using txt records for configuration though?

                          []go1dfish -0 points

                          The way I'm currently thinking about this, the mapping would be done by a trusted oracle like the indexer, so would be up to it to be able to query those systems for TXT records.

                            If you distrust the space owner that much, nothing would stop you from using your own subdomain with that guy's setup and space, right?

                            Right.

                            The trust here is a double edged sword, it's also what makes allowing custom themes make sense here (since the domain owner could do this on their own anyway you already trust them) but only when viewing through the domain itself not when viewing from notabug.io or your own domain

                              Maybe an easier way to explain this, is that it would allow nab.cx to be implemented as a cname to notabug.io and TXT records to set the homepage space and theme.

                                I think all that would be necessary is a way for the client to ask the indexer for the space associated with a domain. This would happen when loading the front-page using location.hostname

                                That data could already be present, and if it isn't a query can be done by the indexer to update it.

                                With this approach the end user would only have to register their domain, cname to notabug.io and add the txt record and visit their domain.

                                  CNAME can make example.com point at my server but isn’t enough in its own to tell it the space to load.

                                  In short. The idea is to use domain txt records to configure the frontpage space for a nab peer, that lets you register example.com and not have to worry about hosting at all and still being able to have a short name.

                                  I don’t think the t/nabdomains part is totally necessary.

                                    The greatest trick of LGBTQ activists was convincing corporations and bullying lawmakers into believing their lie that those in LGBTQ lifestyles are born that way. Science proves no one is born LGBTQ.

                                    If that's true, isn't that going to keep it from becoming the norm to begin with?

                                    Are people literally afraid they will be convinced to go gay through pride marches and media?

                                    This strikes me as remarkably similar to the line of thinking that liberals would use to censor this sort of speech. That it is so dangerous/harmful to society that it cannot be allowed and must be suppressed.

                                        You still need the txt data to know what space to visit though. So I think the actual cname is mostly ignorable by the server.

                                          Took me a bit for this to click, but in general people can prove ownership of a domain and indicate a space it should point to via a TXT record, and have a CNAME record pointing at notabug/nab (or maybe some other peer)

                                          This takes the reddit style namespace problem and pushes it off to be a problem of dns (could allow for .bit domains even)

                                          These wouldn't have to be fully functional peers, it's just a way to do aliasing to spaces with DNS.

                                          It would still be up to the indexer the verify the txt records and relay them to the UI, but they would be independently verifiable.

                                            I'd rather we didn't rehost and repost OC reddit porn here unless you are the OP.

                                            I think it's less bad if you use their original image host to give them better control over deletion. But again this is just my opinion and not some policy mandate.

                                            I'm not gonna ban it and this isn't some policy mandate, I just think as a matter of culture it's not a friendly thing to do.
