The Shortest Twitter Career


I haven't engaged on Twitter, but dipped my toe in recently. I merely posted two tweets, as follow:

quote:

The full title of Charles Darwin's magnum opus was "On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life”.

Is that racism? Is that not racism most foul? Tear down those statues!



and

quote:

My doctor just told me that she would not prescribe me HCQ+ if I was sick because the CDC did not approve. Has she checked with WHO?

She also told me we would be living with masks forever.

She's fired.



I got a remarkable number of followers!

I was banned. I can't twitter any more.

That's what censorship looks like friends. Coming to Escape Velocity soon.

Those seem odd things to be banned for. I could understand Twitter banning you for spreading nonsense about evolution not being a fact. I can’t think of any reason why those tweets merit such a response.

My best guess is:

1) Twitter will claim that I incited violence for suggesting that statues of Darwin be tore down (it was sarcasm of course but 'shrug');

2) The real reason is that they want to eliminate people on the Right from speaking. They can't censor people like Trump completely because he's too popular. But they can start to weed us out by blocking people with limited followers, so no one will notice. Reddit and Quorum have been efficient at silencing dissent from their totalitarian agenda.

So, you're an aficionado of 1984?

Spiko censored my last post wherein I complained about posts being removed from this thread.

From the OP:

"That's what censorship looks like friends. Coming to Escape Velocity soon."

Apparently, Spiko thinks we have too many participants on this forum.

Twitter is run by anti-freedom oligarchs such as Dorsey. Only when the middle class rises against the boards of directors of Twitter, Youtube, and FB, with this nazism cease.

RedQ, open a Tik-Tok account as its owned by the Chicomm party, it will probably get a nice audience, seriously. Play Both Ends against the Middle (not the Middle Class). Please consider this as an angle of attack or you.

Spud, I remember a response to me from you a long time ago: "It sounds like work". It sounds like work.

Here's something you can do that doesn't take much work.

quote:

If any active moderator, other than RedQ, objects to this practice, I will desist.

https://bescapevelocity.runboard.com/t13191



Or this:

quote:

However, if even one moderator, other than RedQ, NuScorpii or giulio, steps forward and merely says “I give TheInvisibleHand permission to restore RedQ's physical moderating privileges,” I can and will restore them. For the record, I request that this moderator justify their declaration, but I cannot require such justification.

This whole contretemps is the result of a disagreement about what is appropriate for MindX. Extropia's pushing socialist ideas are ok in MindX. Lucid pushing UBI are OK in MindX. My showing that Twitter engages in censorship is not OK in MindX. Get it? I don't.

We adopted the 'new' structure on the theory that MindX would be a dogpile of ideas and theories, except for partisan party politics. It didn't mean things like a book review of bias in the press should be relegated to the swamp of Newsflash:
Left Turn On Levin

A possible solution is to add a forum on 'Science' and restore MindX to its former greatness (early KAI).

You can aid in this endeavour and thankfully it's not much work.

Or maybe we should all just go to Parler for free speech.

RedQ, why is it such a burden to ask you to put partisan political content in the NewsFlash section?

Edit:
I don't know if you recall, but the entire purpose of the NewsFlash section was to separate the partisan, divisive political content into it's own forum. The intention was to make it so we could argue about politics in one place, and have a totally separate place where we could have conversations about emerging trends in science and technology that weren't tainted by the day to day partisan bickering. It has largely worked, and the only person that seems to have a problem with it is you.

Lucid, as stated above, your filter on 'partisan political content' is biased. You promote UBI (which is nonsense) is OK, and I describe my being censored on Twitter is not?

So, what is your standard?

I think UBI is a grey area, but if you felt that it was too partisan and said as much in a thread I made then I'd almost certainly move it, if only to keep the peace.

This thread follows the trend that you started on the Kurzweil forum of posting political content while pretending not to do so. You posted your clearly political tweets, and made claims that you were being censored because of your partisan stance. That is blatantly and intentionally political, no matter how hard you try to argue otherwise.

It does not harm or censor you to require you to post political content in the politics section.
