Re: Kurzweil Forum Shut Down


As of now. color me disinterested. I mean why not head for ars technica, pop mechanics, physorg, quartz, forbes, and 20 others, for current technology research? They all did it better than the old K website. I have not missed it, simply because the old forum was simply a push for conformity much of the time.

I didn't mind using the old politics forum to vent, and let everyone else do it; and keep the rest of the forum, simon-pure. I wouldn't mind that here. I could live with it. But because they couldn't rightly eject you from the forum, I feel that RK mgt. threw a fit. I always suspected the Star0 guy as somebody behind the scenes, trying to scare you off.

To the progressive mindset, a "smart conservative," is terrifying. You under-valued your own intellect, in comparison to that fellow 'academic,' which I feel was simply inaccurate. You are in his league and better. More, resourceful. Just my oppy..

Conformity to be progressive?
My ignorance prevents me from seeing what the big deal was between the conservatives and liberal on the forum. The only thing I saw was when potential emerging science and technology trends were proposed the conservatives said these potential trends were liberal propaganda and so Kurzweil forum was suppressed conservative view because these potential trends thread did not allow conservatives to go into these threads and call these ideas propaganda and dangerous to the nation. The conservatives felt excluded so called all ideas the liberal discussed dangerous propaganda to destroy the nation and conspire to indoctrinate the singularity movement because the liberal did not like the conservatives ruining their thread discussions. How many times do conservatives (F)(u)(c)(k)(i)(n)(g) have to call forum users communist for discussing Universal basic income and then call Kurzweil forum an anti-conservative communist propaganda machine? STOP (F)(u)(c)(k)(i)(n)(g) doing that God (F)(u)(c)(k)(i)(n)(g) Damn it.

I know liberals were mean to you but you were (F)(u)(c)(k)(i)(n)(g) stupid yourselves. Seriously UBI is not communism.

I could never be disinterested. The KurzweilAI forum gave birth to ours. I could no more stop being interested in it than I could stop being interested in the welfare of my [sign in to see URL] though we generally share no interests.

I suppose former members will speculate forever about what went wrong with that forum just like historians will speculate forever about the fall of Rome. In my opinion, they were simply limited by their software. They could never create a proper off-topic section with the ability to move threads there at will.

Spikosauropod: They could never create a proper off-topic section


We never needed until the fighting began in 2015. Back before 2015 all the topics conservative regularly would later call off-topic were discussed all the time. Only after 2015 did normal topics become off-topic because of conservatives complained. I remember because I read the Kurzweil forum from when it began in 2010 and still had the Mind-X forum members in it. The 2016 election ruined Kurzweil forum because that was when people began trolling the forum saying any topic not conservative or discussing machine consciousness was off topic. Before the election, you could discuss religion. I made topics on religion but then the election happened and the fighting got all religion thread closed when made. Off-topic is code word for censorship. We had a free forum before the election. Spike was one of those hardcore thought police that just by suggesting we restrict freedom caused greater fighting especially from me since I understood he had the desire to control the forum and I knew his censorship in the name of the common good was not a moral act but ati-kurzweil-forum I vocally said I was exposed every action he took that was atiforum pretending to be proforum. Spike is in his own eyes a moral hero when in fact he is just self-righteous and the bible says, self-righteous people, are hypocrites. Spike was not the savor of the forum as he saw himself, he was restricting peoples freedom to talk about what is their right to talk about. It is my right to free speech that he violated that I had before 2015 that he told me I could not talk about a topic I had every right to talk about and did talk about on the form in 2014. If spikes agenda was violating my rights I had always acted upon then I would not be silent at him declaring the forum must enforce restrictions limiting those rights.

Codeword "Off-topic" is against everything Kurzweil forum stood for. People always had the right to say what they wanted to say up until 2015.

That is one theory, sure. Naturally, I totally reject it.

The Kurzweil forum ran smoothly as long as wild raving progressives had their way and conservatives stayed in their place. Once conservatives started fighting back, all hell broke loose. But unilateral oppression has never been a good tool for maintaining social harmony. It is much better if everyone is accommodated like they are here on EV.

What happened to the KurzweilAI forum is a microcosm of what is happening in the United States.

Re: Kurzweil Forum Shut Down


One thing is clear and undeniable.
Spike wanted to restrict what was within our rights to discuss on the forum.
over and over he said what he wanted to restrict.
This never happened before 2015.
Free, open discussion was the norm.
No one told others their speech should be restricted.
But when the restrictions took place normal topic became off limits for discussion.
The conservatives and liberals killed free speech.
Spike is not innocent.
Spikes tool of destruction.

Moderators Shut Down This Thread Now



After the KAI site implemented the policy of not allowing off-topic political comments outside of three well-defined threads, progressives often tried to create new off-topic political threads anyhow. I would sometimes post in large bold red letters, "Moderators, close this thread," to protest their violations. I did that in lieu of making an official report. Sometimes the moderators agreed with me and sometimes they did not. Note: whenever conservatives posted a thread, even on-topic, that did not strictly conform to progressive ideals, those threads were always immediately closed.

KAI is unchanged. There have been no new articles for two days.
