Ironic tag still using Twitter subby?

I thought Parler was supposed to be free of censorship. You're telling me they were just full of shiat?
 
2020-07-01 3:54:29 PM  
What kind of pearl-clutching website would censor shiat people post on it?
 
2020-07-01 3:54:59 PM  
Somehow I doubt that a social media platform specifically created to allow racists the freedom to be racists is going to police language at all.

Parler CEO Says He'll Ban Users for Posting Bad Words, Dicks, Boobs, or Poop

At least he knows his audience.  If he banned people for posting things about pee his most important client would never show up.

I like how it is worded as a "conservative" site.  Anyone can join.  If they are going to call this
new site Parler, a conservative site, then by all means Twitter should be tagged as a LIBERAL
site?

Parler CEO wants liberals to join conservatives on his site.

Eh, it's a private soapbox so he can enforce whatever rules he wants there. Free speech doesn't apply. Thankfully I don't have to read his twaddle. What I'm saying is I will not be subscribing to his newsletter.

Parler is going down the terlet. But I would like to create an account to see how fast I could get banned from that hole.

Fun fact, bringing up the GOP's racist Southern Strategy was an automatic ban on a certain conservative subreddit.

You can't be banned from Twitter for being a Conservative. They ban people who wish violence on others and use racial slurs. It just so happens that the Venn diagram is a circle.

He should still be called out for his hypocrisy, for billing his site as the "free speech alternative to Twitter". Conservatives aren't acting in good faith, they don't believe in a single set of standards that apply to all people. They want a double standard where they have free speech and a lack of consequences, but can suppress the speech of others.

It's important to refute the BSAB arguments for the part of the public that is still formative, there are new voters every day. Both sides may have flaws but they are fundamentally different because different types of people gravitate to different sides.

These people consider themselves normal.

It seems like their problem isn't with liberal viewpoints. It's with incivility and profanity. So they will censor people for using profanity or being crude, but not for their opinions.

So they're setting up a place where people can have polite conversations about what people are subhuman and have a reasonable debate about the merits of eugenics and genocide. It will be a delightful place to foment racial cleansing.

Rick Wilson and The Lincoln Project are chugging along nicely on Twitter, and they certainly ain't liberal.

To the CEO of Parler:

I understand that in an attempt to appeal to "conservative" internet users, you will permit them to use on your [censored] website certain descriptive words that Blacks and Asians find offensive.  May I suggest a slight change in policy, to wit that you take all of your servers and [censored, censored, censored]?  Such a policy may cause you some discomfort at first, but I think that in the long run you will find that all of us here at Fark will thank you for it.

Yours truly, tirob

I wasn't sure what that article would bring me, but a set of pig testicles large enough to host a log was not on my list of wild guesses.

Well I guess I have to change my username to "Industrial Size Semen Repository" now since CumDumpster is verboten.

No one is saying he can't enforce rules however he wants on his platform. We're mocking his hypocrisy.

No, no. I have it on good authority that you can't make fun of people if they are conservatives. It's in the first amendment.

This is a digital medium. You type potty words. If you want to write them, use pen on paper, and cursive.

Personally I'm mocking his stupidity. But we all have the freedom to mock him and jjorsett for whatever they post.

You haven't been following other Parler threads on Fark, with numerous example of people forming accounts, posting a liberal position and being banned quickly.

They do this because under their rules they can ban anything and anyone they want for any reason.

Raise your hands if you've heard of Twitter.

Raise your hands if you've ever heard of Parler before reading that headline.

"Competitor" is a bit generous, oui?

You mean like Antifa, some BLM types and other socialist marxist types on twitter?
