Literally Wu proves SJWAL

Because SJWs always lie.
 [Larry Correia] and other conservative figures like Adam Baldwin are claiming that Twitter is breaking down on “free speech” and capitulating to the “SJWs,” which I guess means people like me. I have spent much of the last year asking Twitter and other tech companies to improve their harassment policies. There is one problem with Mr. Correria’s claim.

There is no evidence whatsoever for it.

None, zilch, zero. It’s a fantasy. A similar lie is going around that Twitter has put Anita Sarkeesian in charge of their Trust and Safety council, which is similarly baseless. I’ve spoken with a lot of tech companies in the last year and I have never heard anyone propose shadowbanning.

The only “proof” that Twitter is shadowbanning people comes from a disreputable conservative blog, that is so disreputable it cannot even be used as sourcing on Wikipedia. That blog used anonymous sourcing, and was written by someone with a personal axe to grind against Twitter.

The truth is, companies like Twitter are finally enforcing their own TOS if you threaten someone, dox someone, or set up an account specifically created to harass someone. That has led to some people being banned, and some accounts that perpetually break Twitter harassment rules to become deverified.

The backlash against Twitter is by people that prefer these system to remain as they are – a place where the women in your life will get rape threats, where anyone can have their private information posted, and where swarms of vicious mobs are destroying people’s reputation with slander.

The last I checked, almost 100 people have spread Mr. Correria’s baseless claim – and even more with Adam Baldwin. This is an important thing to fact check, and I hope you’ll share this to set the record straight.
Remember, Literally Wu is so stupid and dishonest that in addition to claiming that he is really a pretty, pretty girl despite conclusive evidence to the contrary, he once harassed himself without forgetting to log out of his other account first. He is as in complete denial of Twitter's actions as he is of his own sex.

There is copious documentary and testimonial evidence that Twitter is shadowbanning various individuals on Twitter, among them me. Here is additional proof:
Samuel B Roberts @SBRoberts10 Feb 22
He's so "boorish"! BTW, did the shadow ban thing end? I saw this on my feed.

ConantheCimmerian ‏@ConanTCimmerian Feb 21
Even though I follow him, I haven't seen a direct tweet from @voxday in 2 weeks.

Taxi Driver ‏@northofdoom Feb 20
I never see direct @voxday tweets, despite following

ChateauEmissary Feb 20
Same here. No direct tweets from vox.
Some fantasy. It is telling that Twitter's Committee of Public Safety isn't saying anything, but has stalking horses running around publicly denying what Twitter is observably doing. Notice that the dates mentioned above just happen to correspond with the otherwise inexplicable decline and subsequent recovery of my impressions despite the number of my tweets being flat and the numbers of my followers increasing during the same period.


And if you weren't already convinced that File 770 commenters are literal cretins, here is the relentlessly stupid Tasha Turner again:
15) BRIANNA WU DEFENDS TWITTER
A voice of reason
That, in a nutshell, is why I am more concerned about what my dogs think about the upcoming US presidential election than about anything an SJW might "think". Any connection between what they say and objective reality is purely accidental.

I'd read that EU law prohibits shadowbanning. Don't know if that is true, but something you might want to look into.

Blogger Cataline Sergius February 23, 2016 9:25 AM  

Cataline speculates wildly!!!

Throw the wheel as hard to the left as you can and when the ship capsizes claim that Twitter only sank because you were too much of good lefty.

If you fail because you were a bad businessman you are dead and buried in the Valley.

But fail because you were too devoted an SJW and you are People's Hero of Social Justice Labor. You will always be able to get another job under those circumstances.

Although I admit I was surprised that Dorsey would go out of his way to ensure that Twitter sank. Bringing in corporate shake down artist Anita Sarkeesian to captain the Twitter Committee on Public Safety was like putting Saudi Arabia in charge of the Human's Rights Commission (which the UN of course did). This goes beyond merely trying to get money from Valley VC firms. He is trying to make the destruction of Twitter the subject of leftwing martyrdom.

What about that woman in Montreal who doxxed Roosh V on Twitter (Cernovich pointed her out to the support staff)? Her account was neither banned nor locked. So yes, Mr. Flynt please do explain to us how Twitter is an open platform and is just enforcing its policies.

In constructing its Trust and Safety Council, the social media platform [Twitter]...

Oh good grief, don't they teach French history anymore? Some slight cribbing, looking forward-

The Council was also responsible for interpreting and applying the decrees of the Twitter SJWs, and thus for implementing some of the most stringent policies of the Terror— for instance, the shadowban en masse, the Law of Badthink Suspects, and the Law of the Maximum. The broad and centralized powers of the Council were codified by the Law of 14 Frimaire (also known as the Code of Conduct).

Certainly the strength of the Council had been made evident, as had their ability to control and silence opposition. The Law of 14 Frimaire was enacted to centralize and consolidate power within the Trust and Safety Council.
The Law of 22 Prairial went further in establishing the iron control of the Trust and Safety Council. The law enumerated various forms of public enemies, made mandatory their denunciation, and severely limited the legal recourse available to those accused.

However, even as the stock price tested new lows, the Terror reached its height and with it the Trust and Safety Council's political power, but discord was growing within Twitter. Members of the Committee of Twitter Security resented the autocratic behavior of the Trust and Safety Council. Arguments within the Council itself had grown so violent that it relocated its meetings to a more private room to preserve the illusion of agreement…

There is a VFM group that has formed on MeWe.com which is a pretty decent alternative to FB. Tons of Gun loving groups who were kicked off of FB have migrated there also. No data mining, your information belongs to YOU not them, and privacy is king. Also, the gentleman who actually invented the internet and gifted it to the world(no, not AlGore) is on their board of advisers.

In fact, IIRC it was a commenter HERE who put me on to MeWe in the first place. Seriously, it is like FB but without all the SJW garbage.

Seems like I've read about that pattern in a fairly recently published book...

There is something to hating Eunuchs. I recall them being despised many times in the Romance of the Three Kingdoms. And more realistically, there were some serious Eunuch shenanigans mentioned in Empress Dowager Cixi

It was not a good thing to become a eunuch, so it's really odd that idiots are doing this to themselves.

The truth is, companies like Twitter are finally enforcing their own TOS if you threaten someone, dox someone, or set up an account specifically created to harass someone.

Yet Milo's personal twitter that made fun of leftists having small penises was not unverified.

Wait until he finally realizes that no STR8 guy will fall in love with him and not care about the not having babies part. His echo chamber tells him it will happen.

At this point, should we even keep a Twitter account?

If you can still buy 10,000 followers for under $5 do so that way when they ban you they will think you are important.

Clearly the Wu is on a roll at the moment -

I am not saying people should be like Milo and wear $15,000 outfits to places women rub blood on their faces but for a daily mail interview not looking homeless might be a good idea if you are not trying to make puffs look bad, unless you are trying to break the stereotype of knowing how to chose cloths. If I attend one of Milo's college shows I will wear cloths I can toss in the trash without regret unlike Nate's wife's glock.

Make a video of yourself creating two fake accounts, one to send a tweet, the other to follow. Show how the twet shows up

Not usually one for new laws, but suppose a state such as Texas or Arizona passed a law requiring clear guidelines TOS for social media terms of service, appeal rights for bans, and demonstrated even-handed application of the rules as to state residents.

Slightly off topic but along the same lines -
We just finished our annual charity MG shoot. As we have done for the past three years, we used square card reader to process cards at the range on the day of the shoot. All of a sudden this year we are having difficulty recovering the money that was processed by them back into our account. We are talking about $4-5K here; about half of which is earmarked to pay for the ammo I supplied for the shoot. Never had this problem before.
My suspicion is that some dude at square card has figured out that we are raising money by shooting guns and doesn't like the idea.
My attitude is to have our sec-treas tell them to transfer the money or the next correspondence they get will be from our attorney... We shall see.

I've renewed my drivers' license a number of times and have always managed to escape the guillotine.

Of course you have, Citizen. The guillotine out back is for the escaped slaves, not for you. "Your" "Driver" "License" grants you the "Privilege" to engage in an activity that would otherwise be illegal, namely "Operating"- even going so far as "Driving"- a "Common Carrier", or "Vehicle", on a public highway, conveying paying "Passengers" and "Merchandise" at the public's expense. That is what you do with it, right? After all, you went and "Registered" your private car as a "Vehicle", converting it for use in "Commerce" (a synonym of "Traffic").

Each of those quoted words means something a little different in law-ish than they appear to mean. All of them are "backed by the Full Faith and Credit of the Government", too, a legal euphemism for the barrel of a gun or the blade of a guillotine. Look it all up in an older law dictionary.
