Censorship

Eduardo Hernández ·
I was reading a different post, and got a bit doubtful about this particular line that described the Personal Journals: " Personal Journals may be suspended by the Tribunal for any reason. (And note that users may report Personal Journal content to the Tribunal.) " So, let me get this straight: if somebody stumbles upon my PERSONAL content and, for any reason, decides to report it, I will be kicked out or suspended from Narrative? In the words of my beloved Charles Bukowski, "What the...

The whole goal of Narrative is to not have a backroom group mysteriously banning or deleting with no explanation. That's the system in place now, on most social networks. What we want is free expression, with some mechanism to denote content that may be NSFW, so that those who are easily offended can choose not to see that content. The Tribunal will ultimately be made up of community members who are elected (and who can be removed) by the will of the community. Hopefully they will reflect...

Thanks for clarifying this, @Rosemary . I am an advocate for freedom of speech, specially as an existential erotica writer. I do, on the other hand, condemn hate speech, and all types of violence towards an specific group of people. So, if I understand Narrative's position, you won't censure anything that doesn't crosses these kind of lines, right?

Will trolling Comments be able to be deleted by Moderator or Niche owner

Hello @Narrative Network Team I hope to have a Niche that may (hopefully not) have the occassional Trolling commentor. I know that there is other Niches in existence that also may suffer similar intolerant negativity. I know that it has been clearly stated that Narrative is not interested in censorship, but what is the policy of Hate speech and comment harassment. Is there a way for us to delete mean spirited comments in the way the a channel owner on Youtube can delete what they do not...

So pages 27-29 touch on this but might not be explicit enough on this particular question. There is this on page 28 under the Human Moderation subsection: "2. Human Moderation All Niche and Brand channels have their own moderators, responsible for policing and curating the content within their channels. Each Narrator also acts as personal moderator for their own Journal, allowing them to remove or disable comments. " I take policing to implicitly include what you are talking about and the...

@MichelleG thank you for this. it is very helpful. I agree I think Tribunal will have to really work for their 3%. But i think it would be interesting. It would be nice if tribunals got a recognition that always remained on their profile. Like a Tribunal 2018 that always stayed, as I think there is a respect not only for the year you put into the job, but also how early on that you did it. Or if you served multiple years.

Twitter is dying. What lessons can Narrative learn?

Michael ·
You don't agree with my liberalism? You must be a white supremacist neo-nazi. You don't support Trump? You must be an anti-democratic, unpatriotic fake-news-reading libtard. Do these extremes sound familiar? While MySpace died from a lack of technical evolution to their platform, Twitter is dying from abuse. Just thought I'd open up a discussion as to the importance of (perhaps 'hiring' and 'firing') moderators, and how Narrative might try to avoid the negativity trap that Twitter has fallen...

@Michael - the lack of abuse is what makes Quora so good. The moderation there has managed to weed out almost all of the abuse and a lot of the snark. This raises the level of quality remarkably by encouraging those who are there for real exchanges to stick around and participate more, but also, it simply allows the quality to shine because it isn't mired with a sea of insults and obtuseness.

Interesting. I hadn't researched what political viewpoint the source of the publication came from. What matters to me, is whether or not Twitter is engaged in censoring the right to voice opinions, and whether or not the video in the above captions is real. Keep in mind, I don't keep up with US politics, or which left-leaning organization publishes this, or which right-leaning organization publishes that. Stifling guaranteed speech through technology is wrong. Once that starts, where does it...

Undercover Video of Twitter Engineers Exposes Political Censorship

Michael ·
Not only have Google, Facebook, and Twitter been recently served with a class-action lawsuit on political censorship, video has been released of how Twitter engineers selectively and arbitrarily 'shadowban' content that they don't like. On a similar note, The Media Research Center survey , conducted by McLaughlin & Associates, found that 32% of self-described conservative Facebook users have left, or are leaving, Facebook due to political censorship. ...

Responding to disagreement properly is something that takes effort, which in a way is opposed to the structure and format of Twitter, so I'll have to post this hierarchy of argument to my 'politics' Niche when the time comes. https://bigthink.com/paul-ratn...-worst-ways-to-argue

I hear you. If you watch the video again, you might find that the engineers are doing three things: - admitting that human biases affect arbitration - admitting that the tech arena is mostly liberal - admitting that there is a concerted effort to remove Russian bots which happen, at this juncture to be pushing narratives favouring Trump None of this is particularly shocking, but edited together, it gives the impression of a conspiracy. The context of the drunk engineer at the club was...

Thanks for the thoughtful reply, @Malkazoid . If the world had more deliberate and well-articulated thinkers like yourself, we probably would have a much more reasonable political climate. I don't know Mr. O'Keefe from the mythical Adam, or Eve, but I like to think it's fair to say that there's nation-state interference from almost every country, and large financiers that have political theories they want to expand to populations. Entire books can be, or have been, written on those subjects.

Excellent (and colourful) graphic! Something of this nature should be on every moderator's wall to help us assess the materials being submitted to the platform.

Well, personally I found many aspects of that video duplicitous and manipulative. Project Veritas is hardly unbiased, and it has been strongly discredited: https://www.theguardian.com/us...oup-beloved-by-trump https://www.snopes.com/tag/project-veritas/ https://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php/Project_Veritas You'll find many examples of Project Veritas engaging in equally, or more extreme forms of manipulation compared to the video they produced on Twitter. Frankly, these class actions suits...

It would be awesome if Mods could bar/ban singular words from comments instead of having the Tribunal delete entire comments. At times, entire comments are removed on other sites due to 1 word, when the main point is actually valid.
