This is what winning looks like

Mother Jones to Andrew Torba of Gab: "I’d appreciate if you could grant me access to Gab so that I can observe and interact with the alt-right. I’d be interested in interviewing you about your motivations for creating Gab." 

Andrew Torba: "Wait your two weeks. We don't interview with fake news sites."

We don't need them. We don't need to genuflect to them, accommodate them, or even talk to them.

I've been on Twitter since 2009. I have 26,900 followers there. I've been on Gab for about four months. I have 11,579 followers there. At this rate of relative growth, I may not have any more reason to bother with Twitter than with MySpace within a year.

I am up to 400 followers, after around 700 posts. No follower-begging either.

It's quite diverse, with trends carrying the main page. First it was MAGA, Trump. Now Pizzagate is dominating.

Haven't seen signs of entryism except for observing the odd downvote scraps which I stay away from.

This blog is where I will get my orders to go nuclear on gab should sjws need a smackdown. Until then, I am pushing red pills, recommending other sources, supporting the Vaugns and Cernoviches.

Depends on the objectives and the time you expect to spend.Free web services (like blogger) are for when it's not particularly important and you don't want to spend much time or any money.
If it's a professional effort, and you have the skills to build and secure a server, getting a bare metal or VM from a reliable vendor is always the best. If it's important and you need it to be reliable, or you expect big traffic, or you're vulnerable to SJW shrieking attack, or, you need control over what is presented and how, pay the money.
I think you can get a basic webserver on rackspace for like $30 per month.

Gab is horrible. I already have 3x the followers on Twitter (that rarely has one interesting tweet in 100), and can easily spend an hour reading really interesting, relevant croaks and unique news stories, and I have almost no filtering - it would be futile. I'm already on overload. And its just getting started.

Twitter's dying like any other dot-com in 1999 with a bankruptcy soon burn rate. With the Trumpening, they'll be down like the Fake Stream Media, and unless there is a tech sugar-daddy that wants to inject another billion next year, it is soon to be the "Norwegian Blue" of Monty Python fame.

The last half dozen times I even went to twitter was because of some tweet mentioned on Gab (Kaine's "Gun Violence" on OSU was the latest as I pointed out the only one with a gun was the Cop, maybe Black Lives Matter?).

The Alt-Right (including -white -west -lite) on Gab is NOT an echo chamber. I have substantial disagreements but even with 300 (Sparta! Molon Labe!) characters, I can have a discussion. On Twitter, it usually involves seeing how many tweets before they are triggered, shriek, and block me.

Recall the angst and fear amongst the weak when Trump let it be known that, eh, he has no intention at this time to have the US .gov investigate parts of the Clinton crime spree. Oh, noes! Oh, woes!

But he didn't say anything about foreign governments investigating , did he? No. He did not.

A source close to President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team told The Post that the new administration plans to pressure the US ambassadors it will name to bring up the foundation with foreign governments — and suggest they probe its ­financial dealings.

Which governments would those be, you wonder? "It takes a village", said Trump at the Al Smith dinner, "And Hillary should know, since she took several in Haiti". Haiti? Yes.

“Haiti and Colombia will be key diplomatic posts for this ­because of all the money ­involved,” said the source.

Other governments from Australia to Norway to France are scaling back their association with The Clinton Foundation.

All this, and Trump hasn't even been sworn in yet. Bestestest election EVAH.

Like telling companies the more middle-class jobs they create, the more of their over-seas profits they can repatriate tax-free. Or getting a corporate tax-break to make our high-enviro-regulated companies competitive with high-pollution over-seas manufacturers. Start requiring products being bought by the US government have a steadily increasing percentage of totally made-in-USA parts, starting with foundational components like capacitors, basic chips, mobo assembly, etc. (doesn't have to get to 100%, but have a supplier build have the items here totally from scratch, import half, so that at least we have the domestic manufacturing capability if not the capacity). Maybe change the Wall Street incentives so that a math major can make more money off wall street than on it by making algos to extract massive financial wealth via mega-numbers of micro-transactional profits (get the highly concentrated profits out of banking, get them spread out in making and doing real things in the real economy).
