Oh, well. Some group, not as numerous as they think they are, create an echo chamber for themselves. Like it happens once in a... day or so.
Taking into account that this is Sparta Internet and they are very confrontational without being really Techies, I expect massive malicious troll and hacker attacks.
The Internet is full of self-appointed Dirty Harrys.

Sparta would be much preferable to Trump. At least the Spartans has class….

I mean, I expect this "Truth" to be attacked beyond their coping capacity. They have enough enemies.

Hedge fund manager Boaz Weinstein withdrew his investment after learning that he would be supporting Trump's social media company Truth Social.  Mr. Weinstein said on Thursday (2021-10-21) that after learning of the Trump deal, his firm sold much of its stake in Digital World in the early morning, notching a small profit before the shares soared higher.

"Many investors are grappling with hard questions about how to incorporate their values into their work", Mr. Weinstein said in a statement.  "For us, this was not a close call".

Didn't Fnord find the exact opposite in the TOS? That negative comments about the site or it's owner are expressly prohibited? Or did I miss-understand Fnord's post?


Maybe there is something in the ToS... I didn't bother with fnord's claims, as I have difficulty in accepting the quotes as being honest, given the link to a satirical website concealed in his signature and presented as being an "official" source for legitimate information...

I may go to the site and see what is contained in the ToS at some stage, but not having any interest in trying to sign up for an account there, it isn't that high on my "to do" list.

I'm afraid I don't understand the question. It was clear I was talking about Donald Trump, if that's what you're wondering about.

Trump is a symptom of a sick Amerian political system, imo. It needs fixing.
I'm not going to hold my breath, however.

I agree with you. I wish Trump would retire from politics and let new republican blood take over.
He has been a major disruptor in Amerian society.
Amerians needs to stop hating each other and concentrate their energies on unifying Ameria again.

Just read this article and came here to start a thread but I see it's already going.

Anyways, funny and interesting take on this money laundering scheme of a "social media website."

https://god.dailydot.com/trump-truth-social



A bit surprised there're no comments in this thread about this article, considering it says the site is a clone of some generic social media software, AND they claim it cost $300M (LOL) AND it's in partnership with some Chinese company laundering money in the Cayman Islands... the whole thing just reeks of classic djt bs.

I wonder if the home page will have an orangy theme.

Sadly your comment wasn't imposed over the picture of a kindly, confused looking grandmother so I failed to notice. :oops:
