Back on topic. We thought it wise to add general actions we usually take in each situation to better help you understand what to expect and why. As well as to target specific situations and explain reasoning. This should help clear up grey areas for staff and help moderation and fix the issues with those pesky rule skirters that bash people :)

Really, no "hate" speech? So this is just another politically correct facebook-like "safe place"? I thought otherwise.

Just the Spam and Advertising ones.

 

Are not cut and past jobs a form of advertising and I know several forums where Cut and Paste is considered Spam, though that is very subjective.

Effectively when you cut and past from somewhere else you allow you forum to be advertising for that site you have cut and pasted from and/or linking to advertising through the links to the site where the cut and paste was made from. Some people are paid to link specific sites over and over to CT sites which acts as advertising for those other site. Many here seem to cut and paste from the same set of sites, which is also what the people being paid to advertise sites through linking do.

 

Just something to consider.

 

When people are cut and pasting from COP it is good for COP. It spreads links further and also helps in raising search rankings. When you cut and paste other site you are helping them...but do they help you in return?

 

Now we can't help COP by cut and pasting articles other people have already cut and pasted. Only unique articles help to spread your site's fame and readership.

How do you bring in people who write material rather than cut and paste it from somewhere else?

How do you get the people who make those vids on Utube put them here first?

 

 

The Game is changing rapidly even if people haven't seen it yet. Soon sites who don't generate unique material might be left in the cold, even worse sites who generate unique material will be forced to register their writers as Journalists or face prosecution under new anti- fake news laws. What we see in the long term is unregistered journalists will be shut down by claiming they are not publishing under current journalistic guidelines and therefore are fake news.

Discussion forums may not be allowed to generate unique content unless registered. People might be free to discuss other work but might not be able to create their own. What this will do is cause major stagnation on discussion forums as new information will not be allowed to be posted unless posted by a registered journalist.

 

The other proposal to shut down these sites was to require an registered psychologist on Forums because of the potential to create mental illness and the requirement for forum Admins and owners to take all due care for their users/customers. This will be done to create large expenses for forums which will create severe costs for forum owners. Another legitimate way of shutting down sites as even now it is law in most nations anyone owning and establishment or business must take all care to prevent harm (including mental harm) to their customers and users. Anyone in the USA who has developed a mental illness after using CT sites is well within their rights to sue those site owners and seek damages from not going to all reasonable lengths to prevent mental harm to their users. Legal disclaimers do not get you off or out of a case like that.

 

Things are changing and people need to be aware. It might not be as long as people think before these sites become illegal in many western nations and have to revert to going underground again. The ALT Media must be destroyed before the next US elections.

.....personal opinions are covered under the first amendment, so i dont see how you can make someone become a licensed journalist just for posting a statement.  Same goes for any kindof statement on any variety of subjects.  

Sounds like 1984.
