I'm sure Phil Jayhan & friends won't mind me asking Brianv to come join us here at the ever friendly LetsRollForums; an altogether fresher place to be, as we all can see. A forum free of that crippling cult-like control that contributors to Cluesforum so often complain; a forum where anyone with truly critical thinking can comfortably convey his ideas without fear of being crushed under the fearsome jackboot of Herr Shack & Co.
"Cult-like control?" He sure is laying it on thick about hurt feelings. So I guess instead of being depicted as secret government employees, we're now meant to be depicted as hurtful Nazis?
Is there any position Let'sTroll pseudo-users take besides
that of just being against
the discussion of crypto tech? They act blind even to obvious
public uses of Hollywood-style CGI propaganda, and pretend to be cavalier about their certainties in CGI objects and people being unaltered footage of real life.
A forum like that shill-infested gatekeeping collection, "free" from appropriate moderation (moderation that we
strive to do fairly and transparently even when we dislike it) is a forum asking to be infested with the bent and those paid to appear so to inflate numbers. A forum can be as "friendly" as you'd like about censorship and skewing, but that just makes it all the more creepy that they deny they are just as strict
, if not more so, and it's supposed to be better because it's with a diplomatic grimace.
I don't think we deny that we are strict. We warn people regularly not to take moderation personally, and we strive to create the understanding that true research into these difficult topics is not about "making fast friends" or having a mob-like group united against other researchers using emotionally manipulative tactics (which describes that Let's Roll Over almost-rabble has-been club to a T), but about pointing to evidence and closely examining it. They refuse to look at the evidence of elaborate cryptographic technology, even as it visibly improves and increases in frequency. I wonder why they think we live in the 1980's where the most ubiquitous fakery technology was just chromakeying, and why their campaign to deny any examples of its development perfectly fits with what the goals of a cryptographic network would want, in order to prevent people from seeing the seams in their system.
Well, we are just Nazis then, I suppose, for insisting we have the right to doubt their intentions.
