Gab, get in on the ground floor
« on: September 22, 2016, 07:41:10 PM »
Looks like someone is already offering up an alternative to Twitter.  I never twatted, but I will get in on the ground floor of this.

OK, so it's not immediate, but you can see the demand is there.   ::thumbsup::

I gave them my "political spam" email address. It's sole purpose is to divert any of that crap away from my personal email.

I went with a dead letter site and an email address name offensive to the islaminal prophet of hell...just because I like to push boundaries with as much honesty as I can muster...

Y'all get this bounce-back message too?

Guidelines.
Last updated: August 18th, 2016
Gab's mission is to put people and free speech first. We believe that the only valid form of censorship is filtering options, an individual's own choice to opt-out. Gab empowers users to filter and remove unwanted followers, words, phrases, and topics they don’t want to see in their feeds to help stop and prevent different forms harassment. However, we do take steps to protect ourselves and our users from illegal activity. By signing up for Gab, all users agree to adhere to the policies set forth below. Failure to do so will result in the temporary locking or banning of their account(s).

Illegal Pornography

We have a zero tolerance policy against illegal pornography. Such material will be instantly removed and the owning account will be dealt with appropriately per the advice of our legal counsel. We reserve the right to ban accounts that share such material. We may also report the user to local law enforcement per the advice our legal counsel.

Threats and Terrorism

We have a zero tolerance policy for violence and terrorism. Users are not allowed to make threats of, or promote, violence of any kind or promote terrorist organizations or agendas. Such users will be instantly removed and the owning account will be dealt with appropriately per the advice of our legal counsel. We may also report the user to local and/or federal law enforcement per the advice of our legal counsel.

What defines a ‘terrorist organization or agenda’? Any group that is labelled as a terrorist organization by the United Nations and/or United States of America classifies as a terrorist organization on Gab.


Private Information

Users are not allowed to post other’s confidential information, including but not limited to, credit card numbers, street numbers, SSNs, without their expressed authorization.

Wellbeing

Try to be nice and kind to one another. We’re all human.


Well, that sucks!  Letting the UN and US Govt decide who is a terrorist and who isn't?  For shat-sake the UN deems Israel a terrorist organization and puts Islaminal trash to head its Human (Ha!) Rights agency!  And the US Govt under B. Hussein O. has anybody not a prog pos listed as a terrorist!

So much for this rollout...it's going to be another echo-chamber of leftist moonbat progs and all the filthy little sub-human groups that orbit it!

 ::mooning::

Still, we can have a competition to see how fast we can get canned...'Soup nailed that right off the bat!   ::thumbsup::

People want free speech and reasonable Admins who don't can people without good cause?  Come to IAL, anywhere else is a crapshoot!

Heh..... their rules.....No illegal porn, so apparently legal porn is accepted. I think their terrorism rules will be challenged, especially since one of their benchmarks to label it terrorism is if the USA call it such. We cannot utter the word terrorist or terrorism, so I'd think anything goes.

Of course, it could mean if you post NRA or MILITIA you will be banned and turned over to authorities.

The nice and be kind.....That is code for if you are conservative, you might as well not sign up because you will not be tolerated like the left. I believe our out for us, though....they make the mistake commenting we are all human.
I'm not always engulfed in scandals, but when I am, I make sure I blame others.

Exactly how I interpreted it. Those radical Tea Party members riot all the time.

 From the way they present themselves, I'd bet they'd actively keep jihaders off and people like Milo and Vox on.

All yer showing me is a sign-in for gab voxday, and I'm not signing in, so, I'm asking again, Vox.com or VoxDay?

Because VoxDay is alt-right.

Vox Day, and as I'm signed in, I'm seeing his page.  Like a Twitter page.

Okay, thank you.  I'm kind of surprised it's him ........ waiting to hear how little time it takes from him to get banned under their TOS.
