It might not stay as is but I am already using it. See the PR here https://github.com/LemmyNet/lemmy/pull/2017

What is it? Black listing works like this, If a community is just to insane for me to host or I want it to not show up in trending and the community list I can mark it as blacklisted.

Blacklisted communities still show up as normal for subscribers. They can still federate with mastodon if you sub to it from mastodon. You can still invite people to subscribe to a blacklisted community. The difference is that it is harder for other wolfballs users to find it. Without being subscribed it is currently invisible everywhere except comment view. I’m not sure if I need to remove it there. Most people don’t use comment view.

Right now it is not very transparent which communities are blacklisted. The UI does not yet have a concept of blacklisted. I need to add it in still. I do think there should be a place for users to find what communities are blacklisted. Certainly moderators should be made aware. This feature is still in code review with the other lemmy devs so it will likely change some.

What communities are blacklisted?

Currently /c/racist and /c/incest

The idea is that these communities do not break the rules but perhaps the spirit of the rules and also aren’t doing me any favors making a argument for freedom of speech to our detractors.

Not that I need to appease them but sometimes the constant bitching and moaning about “hate, genocide, murderer” starts to wear me down when not many people are out defending me. (Please defend free speech if you are out in the wild and see the arguments btw)

I know that my heart is nothing but love. Love for the free voice of mankind. But others often misjudge and do not know what is in my heart when they see /c/racist.

I am committed to making the most popular free speech site on the planet. I am also under the belief that most of the opinions here are not fringe but what the majority of Americans hold. (If you are not American, I am going by american laws here. I can’t honor every country on earth it’s to complicated. Someone needs to start instances in each country if this one gets banned there.)

But we may need to do a few things like this while the site grows. The more middle of the road content we have the easier it is to openly host fringe ideas. Because there are people to argue both sides and it will be a good representation of the population. I want true open discourse. I will not hide behind pejoratives aimed at hard working middle class conservative Americans. (Perhaps these fit you in other countries as well). example alphabet soup phobic. Grow some balls and argue back.

That said, a community dedicated to deformed black babies is only going to get us taken down by a series of lawsuits I can’t possibly afford to defend. And it doesn’t add much to human knowledge or the pursuit of truth.

Blacklisting is my current idea to be fair to the users who come here for freedom while allowing us to grow.

I believe we can hit 20 percent of reddit’s userbase at-least while maintaining edgy free speech. Which is more than enough to sustain a business.

Bro, as long as you are transparent and fair in applying the rules to everyone and yourself, people would understand. The reason people left other social media platforms is because of arbitrary censorship and absolute hypocrisy from one class - the left.

Its ok, as long as you are clear in defining the boundaries of your site from the get go, so no one feels betrayed.

I plan to be hands off for the most part. C racist has been a huge thorn in my side for a while. I get a lot of shit and hardly no one is out there defending it. You can still go there, sub to it but I can’t advertise it ATM. Its not a hill I want to die on right now. I have more important battles to fight.

Unfortunately, unlimited freedom doesn’t and can’t exist. Every freedom bumps up against every other freedom, and one person’s freedoms can eliminate another person’s freedoms.

I had to delete a video on FBXL Video the other day. I don’t like doing stuff like that, but it was an ISIS recruitment video. The likelihood that keeping stuff like that up and keeping my own ability to speak in the jurisdiction I’m in was pretty low. If I protected their freedom it would be very likely everyone else would lose theirs. Same with when people upload copyrighted materials like movies. If I leave stuff like that up, it’s just a matter of time until I get hit hard and lose my shirt in an MPAA lawsuit. On FBXL Social, I occasionally see posts that are illegal in my jurisdiction, and I have no choice once I’m aware of them – I have to hit delete.

On the other hand, someone from my instance blew up at a creator I like in the comments, and I left that up because although I disagree with it and don’t like it, nobody has a right to not see things they don’t like. A lot of the videos on my instance are strange marketing videos and although it’s not the sort of thing I’d prefer people use a federated service to get out there, they don’t need to justify their use of the site to me. Moreover, FBXL Social gets thousands of posts I disagree with every day, the correct choice is to either respond or ignore.

I do think we need to change people’s way of looking at the Free Internet. People cry for freedom so they can say what they want and then when they see it they immediately complain that others have their own freedom to say what they want. You can’t do that. The /c/racist folks are offensive to a lot of people, but for a lot of people the opposing message can look just as racist and just as offensive.

Now, that being said, the fediverse provides an extra layer of freedom. Let’s say that you just say “Sorry, /c/racist and /c/incest are my limit, you guys can’t host on wolfballs.com.” Well, then they just go “Oh noes whatever will we do oh we just set up our own server at racistincest.com” – you can even keep using your original account and just subscribe remotely to the new server (I assume lemmy allows this).

On the other other other hand, you’ve got to be very careful because authoritarianism is a sweet but poison fruit, and freedom is a bitter but nutritious fruit. I was on reddit in its golden age right after the fall of digg, and it was beautiful – lots of people discussing and disagreeing and agreeing and finding new ideas they could process. A death of a thousand cuts occurred. Over the course of several years a site based on freedom and choice was changed into a curated space where mods silence dissent, and if the mods don’t get you the culture of “upvote if you agree, downvote if you disagree” forced all dissent out. Eventually I couldn’t go back. I tried Voat for a while, but I found it was an echo chamber of a different kind. That’s what ultimately led me to the fediverse, where there’s diverse opinions and a structure that can promote freedom.

I would probably allow Isis videos. They would just get trolled super hard here.

I’m looking for feedback and want this to be a back and forth thing.

Ive noticed people really don’t want to self host. People just get mad when you ask them to host their own instance. Even if I offer to walk them through it.

You never used ruqqus? I thought they did a great job for a while and were not yet at their potential. Before they gave up and censored mgtow .

Categories kinda sucked there and most of the guilds they wanted to hide no one used. It was spam.

Im interested in developing peer to peer solutions for people who want true freedom over their content. Maybe it can integrate into the fediverse somehow

Given the jurisdiction I’m in, I didn’t want to risk it. My jurisdiction has a constitution that protects freedom of speech, but it isn’t as strong as the strict scrutiny standard in the US, it’s closer to the intermediate scrutiny standard, and I don’t want to test that.

I never used ruqqus. Sounds familiar, though.

The whole “I don’t want to self-host!” thing is another example of mindsets we need to change. People are far too used to letting someone else handle it. I could see a future where everyone has a little server in their utility room that provides the basic services they use. Move away from big tech towards small tech, and you never have to apologize or ask permission to do what you want.

Don’t underestimate stupidity and greed. I would say that hosting a server is an easy mental challenge for about 25% of the population and that is generous.

Self hosting is an ideal solution, but IMHO not a workable one.

For sure, it’s something that would need a new product. The NAS I bought last year can run nextcloud in about four clicks, so I’m imagining a product that’s something like that: Plug it in, use the interface to get the utilities you want, start using it. I think there are products on the way like that, so it’s not impossible.

Yeah, I think on principle it should be hosted, so adults can be aware of the reality of this kind of stuff, however, if the law prohibits, then its really not the hill to die on.

If it was an anti covid disinformation law or hate speech or something, I would encourage everyone to break such laws, because they are too dangerous to leading society down a totalitarian path.

But you can be forgiven for not wanting to host ISIS recruitment videos instead of getting fined/jailed.

I agree. Its your life, no one can tell you how to run it. I see no problem at all, even with big sites like Facebook having rules. Its just that they are not fair in equally applying it, they are opaque as fuck and in a lot of cases, they are actively pushing propaganda.

Omg I’m the one who created those subs XD But hey at least they’re just memes and forums!

I think I’ve kept the content on those subs pretty soft compared to how bad they COULD be. And I plan to continue keeping the content soft and forgettable.

I approve of this system. Keep weird shit off the homepage!

i like this idea. :) quite clever. and simple enough.

I don’t see keeping things off the home page as “censorship.”

Let’s suppose you have a kid drawing morbid things. You might not want to discourage them from art and creativity, but you don’t have to hang morbid pics on the fridge for the entire family to see. So you are not taking their paper, pencils, markers, and paint away, just not putting what they draw on the fridge. You wouldn’t want a daughter to see a pic your son drew of her being dismembered and having her head on a pike. So you don’t hang such artwork on the refrigerator, and maybe you ask that he draw such things in his room with the door closed. Or similar could be said if your artistic daughter were to draw the female reproductive system with great detail. There is nothing wrong with such a drawing, but you might not want to look at it while you are eating.

Or take laws involving adult businesses. If you run a place that features strippers, you keep that activity on the other side of a partition. You’d try not to make that visible from the street. There are several reasons for that. You don’t want to expose the underage public to that, you don’t want to give that content away for free (at least make folks pay a cover charge), and you don’t want to violate municipal laws. And adult video shops would make you go into the masturbatorium to watch those or sell you the videos to watch at home, but they will not put a giant screen outside their business and show it to the public. That would likely violate laws and cause unintended consequences such as traffic collisions due to creating an “attractive nuisance.”

The whole point of the fediverse it to spread out the responsibility so all legal content exist and together people can find it but one person/company doesn’t have to shoulder the whole responsibility. People need to start learning how to use Mastodon with lemmy and other fediverse apps.

Wolfballs won’t get everything right the first time around. I am comited to helping build the fediverse so that no one is silenced like what happened during the last election. Where half the human voice was silenced.

Yeah, I get that. That is why I sort of believe that a specialized browser is sometimes the way to go. So everything is sent in encrypted streams, and things like databases can be split among hubs or super-peers. And code can be used to locate disruptor nodes and quarantine those.

Yeah, you can promote free speech without agreeing with everything. And just because a community is allowed doesn’t mean it has to be on the front page and promoted. That is a mistake that Gab made. After a while, others only saw fringe content, and the algorithms took votes into account. So all you had to do was get bots up upvote the fringe content and downvote everything else. Even Reddit knows about this sort of thing and has the quarantine option.

It reminds me of Tay or Tai, the MS AI app. They took it down in a few days due to the responses “she” started giving. You could ask her about a certain German chancellor, and she said he did nothing wrong, blamed certain groups for today’s problems, and talked about needing to get rid of more people. Really, it seems an AI that acts like a teen needs parents, and MS was not up to the task. It just took a few days for the Alt-right to turn her.

As for deformed babies, I think that depends on the context. I mean, if the community is based on supporting Smile Train, Mercy Ships, or Samaritan’s Purse, that would be one thing, as they would have before and after promotional pictures for their organization. The goal would be to raise awareness and funds to help those with deformities. However, if the goal is only for shock, awe, and making fun of such folks, yeah, I agree with you. I don’t see what that helps.

What we need to watch for are infiltrators. I mean those who attempt to post illegal content, those who pretend to be race supremacists, and those who join before committing serious felonies or at least “imperfect self-defense.” That is when you might start out in the right because someone attacked you, but you escalate it beyond self-defense. Like if someone kicks your door in, you pepper them with a shotgun, they take off running, eliminating the threat, and you chase them down and finish them. We don’t need such folks around here. That is what happened to a few sites during the incident in Virginia the other year. The killer used certain sites and the sites got blamed for what independent crazies decided to do on their own. That’s what many on the Left don’t understand. Violent people are already like they are and in time, they will show that side of themselves. They don’t need a website to pump them up. Evil and violence already exists in them, but the Left wants a scapegoat and claims if society didn’t make them as they are, they wouldn’t have done whatever. No, they would have still acted that way eventually. Still, those are the cards we are dealt and we have to look out for unhinged folks, crisis actors, and activist trolls.

I was thinking more in terms of the damaged reputation and cancel culture. It seems that crisis actors get unhinged folks or infiltrators to join sites they don’t like, pump them up to commit violence, and then use the violence as an excuse to try to get things taken down. Then hacktivists will DDOS said site, Cloudflare will refuse to sell you DDOS protection, payment processors will label you as a terrorist site and refuse service, and even CP pedlers will target your site.

Not really. I don’t see it that way. Front-page is a promotion. Trending is a promotion. As long as you are subscribed its not blacklisted to you. By showing super offensive stuff on the front page, trending to people not subscribed, people are making the argument that I am encouraging racism. When I’m really trying to encourage open discussion and debate.

You can still share those communities via link. People can go there and subscribe. You have to do the promotion yourself. That takes a lot of heat away from me.

As I’ve talked about before, you can’t have pure unfiltered discussion in community oriented social media by definition. Timelines are better for pure free speech. Because it reduces down to the individual, the smallest unit. We don’t yet have a concept of personal timeline . for now, if you want pure free speech. Excluding nudity I suggest gab.

I plan to build something like gab that integrates in the future, with a peer to peer database so censorship is not possible. That way it takes the responsibility away from me entirely and any liability.

Again I appreciate your feedback. Im trying to make this place as free as possible while being realistic. There is a reason other sites like this failed and we need to learn from it.

You didn’t use the word, but you do acknowledge this is a kind of censorship, right?

A lot of people were critical of Ruqqus basically doing the same thing.

The idea is that these communities do not break the rules but perhaps the spirit of the rules and also aren’t doing me any favors making a argument for freedom of speech to our detractors.

I think the view of free speech that I grew to know was expressed by J.S. Mill in “On Liberty”, where he argued that it was important that views are free to be expressed, because either we find out that they are correct and can change our incorrect views, or they are incorrect views and we are able to freely discuss to come to the conclusion about them being wrong.

So with something like racism, perhaps a person is able to explain why they are racist, and if another person disagrees with them, then to explain why they are not racist, and perhaps they can work out some kind of understanding of the subject, and come to a deeper understanding of and appreciation of why people hold the views they do.

For example, I was personally victimized in a minor way with an act of violence from someone of another race, and have never experienced this kind of treatment from those of my race. This did not cause me to be racist, but I could understand how experiences like this could encourage others to be racist, but I endured much of such abuse over time, and have thus concluded there are differences between the races (the so-called “race realism”) whether they are simply biological or social - this view is considered “racist” by some people - while individuals may be different from some of these racial stereotypes.

I also prefer to be around people of my own race, simply because it is “my” people, and I think this is a valid view other races hold. However, we are all created by God and so I am supportive somewhat of certain “anti-racist” views, like it is morally acceptable for people to different races to marry. But I think it is more common for people of the same race to marry, and think some leftists are simply having mixed race marriages to “stir up trouble” in society. Christianity ultimately is more concerned with Christians not engaging in inter-religious marriages (of Christians and non-Christians marrying one another).

Anyway, so the basic idea is that if communities like c/racist are unable to be reached, I am unable to have as much of conversations as the above. This has generally made me supportive of lax moderation policies as a user, so that I can have such conversations, however as a moderator (or site admin) I think I would tend to want to have an instance where I enforce “Christian speech standards” that would exclude certain sins of the tongue or promotion of heresy or schism. So I see this issue from both angles, and quite honestly I don’t have a solution to it, besides that stuff I host will probably be moderated, stuff that someone else hosts I will probably seek out whatever has the least amount of rules.

I view forums like a sandbox, or open world, or like LEGO, and I enjoy not worrying about if there are rules that suppress speech about incest or racism, or whatever else might end up on a “blacklist”.

That all being said, I can understand and appreciate an argument for censorship based on market costs of speech - as long as it’s explained that that’s where the censorship comes from or from personal taste or values. Mostly I think people get frustrated when they see something advertise itself as being for “free speech” but then basically see there’s fine print that says “some restrictions may apply”. Then it is not a “free speech” site or project, although it could be thought to be a “freer speech” project (freer than some other project, like versus Reddit). Also they may be frustrated if someone restricts speech but is able to pay the cost of such speech, which is of a different motive.

There are also differences between legal free speech and institutional free speech, like a person may support the freedom of speech legally but on their own forum may not want to allow full freedom of speech under the law, because that is not how they want to run their forum. Or for example, they may be ok with tobacco or marijuana being legal, but are not ok with people coming to their restaurant and smoking inside (which was allowed at one point - smoking tobacco inside, anyway).

Also, I guess though from a user’s standpoint, moves like this are often thought to be red flags that pave the way towards censoring something in the future that the user likes, and so users jump ship or consider it. Restriction of c/racist and c/incest may not be a problem for me, but like on ruqqus then they moved on to mgtow which pretty much everyone thought was overboard. Votal started by saying communities could self-moderate, and then implemented some policy against “hateful speech” and then even started banning people for criticizing the policy (until shortly after they just closed down entirely).

Lastly, this conversation may end up being somewhat unnecessary going forward, as the people who want as totally uncensored of speech as they can under the law, may just use some kind of tech like blockchain recording of posts, where the posts basically can’t be censored (or as much). I don’t know how these projects filter out illegal content, but I’m pretty sure many blockchains have illegal content in them and yet are judged to be legal to possess, or it may be some kind of gray area that otherwise still allows these projects to function.

tl;dr it’s your site to run, if users don’t like it they can leave, I will stay for now, I kind of know where you stand on things and why and so I can see myself enjoy the instance for a while or indefinitely, if God forbid somehow you go the way of Ruqqus I’ll just hop to another forum (I think a lot of us on here are prepared to do that if necessary after already having to move around before), so hopefully the memes can continue to flow…

Those are mostly reasonably views. I will never ban mgtow content. I will never ban the word tranny. I will never ban incels.

Insults in general I will never ban.

Memes can come and I will be mostly hands off. I made Wiggle hard a admin. I trust his Judgment. For the most part. He can always disagree and tell me why. But I can’t openly host a group dedicated to racism when I’m out trying to explain to people that conservatives are not racist and allowing criticism of critical race theory is not racist.

We have elections being stolen and vaccines that kill being forced on people. Protecting someone’s right to post pictures of cat turds and calling them black babies isn’t a hill I want to die on. Who the fuck cares? On Instagram every single post we post would be fact checked with zoros funded disinformation.

I will however offer all my knowledge and help anyone who thinks they can do better or even just wants to federate a one on one explanation on how to set up their own instance. I will walk through it completely.

I’m not even done with the feature yet. I’m also looking for input here.

I also need people to go out amongst the communist and defend wolfballs. Go to Lemmy when they talk about us and defend us. Go to reddit and post about how you enjoy unmoderated discussion. It makes a huge difference.

In the mean time you can still sub to these communities , you can still post about them in other communities. Seems like a decent way around the problem without having a bunch of retarded group squares you have to click like ruqqus had.

I can’t openly host a group dedicated to racism when I’m out trying to explain to people that conservatives are not racist and allowing criticism of critical race theory is not racist.

I think there’s a lot to be said on some of these topics. I think “racism” is often vaguely defined, and I would argue that there are basically two kinds of racism: the kind of extreme genocidal racism which has led to lots of people dying, which I think is somewhat rarer and which I disagree with, and then garden variety racism which is more like people wanting to be left alone with people like them - this latter kind may cause some inconvenience, but I think is much more benign than it’s made out to be. But in contrast while leftists complain about all racism, I see an analogy to socialism: Communism has been extreme and killed millions, while lesser socialism may be a nuisance but somewhat tolerable. If we attribute genocides like the Rwandan genocide to racism, in contrast the death tolls under Communism are much higher, which leftists are somewhat in support of. And then of course they often support abortion (infanticide), which has even higher estimated death tolls. So really I guess I feel this conversation needs to be reframed to understanding that not all racism is of the genocidal kind, as well as acknowledging the greater harm caused by leftist tendencies.

With respect to appealing to other “conservatives”, some of us are not interested in that I guess. You kind of have to choose which path to go - there is the political solution and the principled solution. An analogy that comes to mind is Trump supporting the “vax” - to me this is the right political move, just like your blacklisting of the racist community is the right political move. It is contrary to the “principled free speech” approach though - in the case of Trump it disappoints us to see him take that stance, and for me sometimes I really enjoy the principled free speech approach. I can appreciate the argument though that there are people willing to make use of this free speech to try to take down a forum, and of trying to restrict certain edgy speech to preserve the ability to speak on other things - I guess that just needs to be clearly communicated (which you did, but which projects like Ruqqus or others maybe didn’t). There isn’t always a “right” answer, there are tradeoffs when people make decisions like this, and sometimes it depends on the situation. Certain moral situations require a principled stand, others don’t.

But I guess some of us are not really worried about appealing to conservatives - many of them failed to protect the unborn as abortion is legal, some of them seem to want to ally with LGBTQ rather than call out the transgender stuff, there is the idea that they aren’t really conserving much of anything. The left will call us bigoted, so they’re not going to be appealed to. The right, some of them, are for free speech, so they shouldn’t have an issue with an offensive community or two. Reddit has an incest community, so it’s not like other places aren’t hosting objectionable content. To me the old conservative way was tolerant of these things that were disagreed with, and they wanted to overcome such things through prayer and offering good example and arguments. In the case of like legal incest, that was sometimes prohibited, not necessarily because the freedom of consenting adults was to be violated, but I imagine because the health of potential children produced might be risked by genetic defects. So again, even with offensive subjects like that, I think they can be talked about, and rational conclusions formed. However I can appreciate the reality that open forums have been used to just promote lies and that’s become a popular problem too.

I will however offer all my knowledge and help anyone who thinks they can do better or even just wants to federate a one on one explanation on how to set up their own instance

This will probably happen eventually, but for now we’ll see what happens - wolfballs fills the niche until then. But it is something to consider, if a wolfballs clone exists that allows all that wolfballs does plus the things that are blacklisted (without them being blacklisted), does that put wolfballs at a disadvantage? Perhaps not if the market wants such things to be blacklisted, and maybe it does. Does Reddit prevent things from going to their frontpage? Not that you want to compare yourself to reddit, but they might have done that even before they became “woke”, and you could make a sensible appeal to say that “see, even reddit used to do that”.

I also need people to go out amongst the communist and defend wolfballs.

Yeah, we should probably make more accounts. But I’m not necessarily interested in defending against commies, who to some extent feel like a lost cause at times, but rather for gathering more like minded people instead. It would have been nice if wolfballs existed just a little prior to ruqqus closing so we could have grabbed all the users. But, a banwave will probably come eventually, and then a whole bunch of people might be here, or reddit is on the verge of going public and that might push a lot of people here, so now is a good time to prepare in the calm before a possible coming “storm” of new users…

It actually did exist. But most people had already left. When they announced they were closing I opened up wolfballs told my old guild covidhoax and only got 1 user. Who made one post and never came back.

We had no reputation yet.

For the defending against commies it’s really important.We do get some people defending us there.

We get tons of missinformation post like this,

This might not even be a real person or it could be a WuMao. These kinda of people make 20 accounts, make a comment and then agree with themselves 10 times.

I’m not interested in doing what the conservative party ask us. Just a world where you aren’t canceled for being against abortion, experimental medication, or maybe even against gay marriage.
