Fresh update on "reddit" discussed on John and Ken

"Going to talk about Portland, which is undergone 80 consecutive nights of protest. Against quote, police violence and systemic racism. No, at this point, they deserve it. However, if the normal people in Portland haven't fought back by now, well, here's possibly a turning point. They have now shifted from downtown to residential neighborhoods. Crowds of demonstrators are now showing up on people's streets where they live. That is going to be a difference maker once you got if demonstrators are like in front of buildings that because of Cove in who's really going to downtown businesses anyway in office buildings That's where it's happening. You know, people get on TV and go. Ah, testis, But if they're going to start coming showing up in your neighborhood Well, John, you're right. That's time for the normal people to finally revolt. Because, well, that's if they're going to bring it to your homes. And you know what? That's exactly what I could see them saying Oh, you know, we've been down here for 80 days, and we're just standing in front of police buildings and nobody's paying any attention. And we've got to bring it to the people. See, I dont believe in their protest. I don't think they're protesting anything other than they're funded Antifa anarchists, I think I I don't think there's any sincerity in these protests at all, because no sane human being would scream for 80 days. They haven't produced any change. But what if they changed all the terms of the Portland police contract? No, they change the budget. No. Nothing's changed. All it is, is people screaming and destroying property and setting fires. I don't. I don't. I don't. I do not believe these aerial groups. I don't believe they really care about these issues. Nobody does this some of the social media postings. Actually, this's reddit and Facebook people who live in the area. One of them said, Wow, They're trash and things. It's not a BLM protest. It's a tantrum by a bunch of entitled kids. It is It's what it's white kids. Another said. They damaged the dumpster and they damaged a business called Post Shine, which is actually black owned. You want one poster? His name is Bradley, who is Describe himself as blacks. And if people want to protest finds your hands busy doing something for the people. Your protest? That's right. The blueprint is the civil rights movement. People who care Don't destroy people who care make the lives Of those who are suffering better. This is a phony movement. This is this is nonsense. I don't care what they call themselves. There's no way you're going to convince me that you've got hundreds of middle class and upper middle class spoiled white kids are really this angry. Over the lack of opportunities for black residents. That is total nonsense. I'm doing this because they fell into their own cult. We have all these competing cults going on in the world and one called, enables the next The progressive cult enables this this anarchist cult Who just wants to destroy for the sake of destroying. There's nothing. There's nothing legitimate here and on a stranger note and point In 2.5 hours of the show. Today, we're going to mention LAMAs for the second time. First time was dealing with vaccine research and possible preventative measures to make sure Covert 19 doesn't attach to your cells. They've been using stuff they get from llamas. But this one is actually dealing with the Portland protests. There's a guy that owns a llama farm. And he's been bringing his six year old lama named Caesar, who was described as the no drama llama to the protests. And allegedly, it's calming people. Did you see a photo of the law right there in the middle of all the masks, protesters. Some of them have their heads down and what they're doing in the picture, but the LAMAs straight up in the middle. It's posing for pictures with people, including the cops. I guess this guy doesn't really have a side. He just thinks it's ah, soothing to bring to bring the LAMAs to the Portland protests. The llamas, it's hard to maintain your intensity. Yeah, the way when you're around a llama. He says that he's not going to put the llama into harm's way when it starts getting dark. Somebody stick a little. What if somebody blows a llama? We don't want to get gassed or hit with rubber bullets. So he pulls the llama back. Lot of the pictures look like their daytime pictures of a llama and the crowd all right, Because we all know it gets ugly, my, don't they? Why doesn't he take the lama to in the morning? Let's see how well it works. I I went to Peru and I think they're out pack is they were not Cuddly. They walked away from me. They weren't friendly at all. They had them on the property of the hotel. I was staying at they just walking around, but they didn't seem to want anything to do with humans. They were just like him. But I imagine if if you're living at the hotel, it's probably constant people trying to come out and take Selfie is probably annoying. Yeah. This guy has a collection of 15 llamas. Yeah, what's going on there? They're very cuddly. I don't think you ought to be out in public. They're very soothing and comforting Like a pillow. All right, we got board covered up.

Reddit bans 'The Donald' and 'ChapoTrapHouse' as part of a major expansion of its rules

"So called so called free speech platforms are now banning All outlandish speech out. All outlines read. It is going to ban the Donald Red, which is one of the bigger threads on Reddit. It's It really is a huge threat on Reddit, and then just to make it fair. They're also banning Chapel Trap house, which is the socialist kind of mud grows over there. I mean, they really get in the mud that really gross and really ugly, but You know, they have a right to free speech to something they would never say about me. But Chapel Trap house has a right to basically say what they want, but apparently they're threat has been shut down. Two shut down 2000 communities after updating their content policy to more explicitly ban hate speech. Policy up taking three weeks after black lives matter. Protests led several popular rented forms go dark temporarily in protest of what they called the company's lacks policies around hosting and promoting racist content. So now Reddit has decided that they are going to continue to crack down on the ability of others to speak. I mean, read its CEO Steve Huffman said. Quote. I have to admit I've struggled about balancing my values as an American and around free speech and free expression with my values and the company's now he's around common human decency. So this is where the rubber meets the road. Here's the reality. There is an Overton window, right? These corporations are not the government and they are allowed to have certain limits as to what they will allow. But if your belief in common decency is basically you just agree with the policy preferences of left. Of common decency means you agree with the left. And that is what is coming into conflict with free speech and free expression and free speech and free expression are no longer existence

Reddit banned a pro-Trump subreddit. Here's what you need to know.

"Has not been a good week for President Trump on Social media On Monday, the live streaming platforms twitch suspended the president's account for posting what it labeled hateful content. It's not clear how long that suspension will Last. Also one Monday, the discussion website Reddit announced it was banning its largest community devoted to President Trump. That community is called the Donald and read. It said it had consistently broken the company's rules against hate speech and inciting violence. This comes a year after Reddit put a warning on the Donald to caution that it was out of line with the platforms policies. Back. Then we spoke with Robert Peck about this. He's a lecture and rhetoric at the University of Iowa and he volunteers as a moderator for Reddit. Robert Peck joins us again. Welcome back. Thank you for having me. Robert for our listeners who don't spend time on Reddit or aren't familiar with this particular Subreddit called the Donald Would you describe? What is it? What type of group discussion happens there and how wide is its reach? Of course, read it is a little bit. Unlike other big social media sites, things like Facebook and Twitter. Those sites often are based around an individual person's profile. On Reddit. Conversely, most people follow topics rather than individual people and read it calls those pages dedicated to those topics. Subreddit CE. The Trump Subreddit, which is called the Donald is dedicated, ostensibly to President Trump and his doings and at the time of its recent ban. It had just under 600,000 current subscribers, though at its peak usage, which was within the last couple of years. It had 3/4 of a 1,000,000. The sub Reddit has become somewhat infamous. In fact, I would go so far as to call. It may be the most infamous page that has ever existed on Reddit. Over the course of the last few years, it has been home to Russian propaganda efforts that were caught both by volunteers on the side and by red. It's on staff. Have been several incidents of the appearance of hate, speech and hateful mean was on the page that were then taken up by Trump himself and spread by his own campaign workers and by the president's own Twitter account. It's become somewhat unpleasant place as you can probably imagine, And that led into thes recent actions that Reddit has taken against it. We mentioned that this Reddit community had gotten ugly enough that it had been disciplined before. But what changed that caused it to be outright band? I don't know that anything in particular changed about the way the page itself was being used. Most of the actual activity that led to this ban has been unfolding over some years. I think what changed to lead to the ban is reddit itself, and I think that it changed in response to recent happenings in the United States. Things like the Black lives matter, protests that have been unfolding over the last few months. In response to those things. Reddit has made several changes, and one of those changes is adding significantly to its rules about hate speech and discrimination on the site, And it seems to be in response to those changes that Reddit has also decided at last to act against the Donald in a final way by banning the page out, right. Does this put peer pressure on other social media sites like Facebook and Twitter to crackdown more aggressively than they are on their own sites. I think it May well do so. The question in my mind is that how similar red it is to those sites sites like Twitter we know Twitter has been taking actions to expose the president's hate speech Recently, It's been doing things like flagging his tweets as rule breaking and trying to correct information that it finds there without outright removing those posts itself. Not. Reddit has banned this group of supporters of the president. That's not quite the same to me is actually limiting the president's own ability to use social media. This is nonetheless an enormous action for Reddit to take whether other sites will follow or not. I can't say they might feel they have other circumstances, but read at least has been willing to take just about the most significant step it it could against this group. Robert, from your perspective as a reddit moderator, could the moderators of the Donald Have done something to try to prevent it from being banned. Oh, APS, absolutely they could, and it's it's In addition to my perspective as a moderator, it's also something that the site's owner has made known both to the volunteers who ran that section of the site and to the users of the site. More broadly, the sights owners who are called the administrators of the site frequently reached out to the Donald's moderators told them what was going wrong in their eyes on this sub reddit and ask them, please to me. Changes in the way they were enforcing the rules, both of their own page and of the site as a whole. But that's something the moderators of the Donald obviously weren't willing to do, and as a result, their community's been banned. So for the time being at least people who used to share thoughts on the site no longer have that outlet. But that doesn't mean they can't go somewhere else. Is this a chance for lesser known site to gain that traffic? It certainly is, we know fairly confidently that this kind of thing from users of the Donald is unlikely to take off on reddit anymore. However, the Donald's moderators have already tried to create an alternative platform they've created. A website called The Donald Got Wind that they've had for months already been redirecting users of their subreddit over to use The best estimates I confined suggests that that page is fairly active, and that use may spread that way. But limiting this activity on a big social media site is certainly a step in the right direction, even if it does spread to Ah, privately owned website with less resources and less exposure than read it itself. That's Robert Peck. He's a volunteer moderator for Reddit and a lecture in rhetoric at the University of Iowa. Thanks for talking with us. Thanks for having me.

"We spent a chunk of the program yesterday on a conversation I had with former fed chair. Janet Yellen and David Malpass. He's the president of the world world-bank. We spent a lot of time on global growth ramifications of interest rates being as low as they are for as long as they have been there and the big and growing pile of global debt debt and then we started taking questions from the audience. Here you go David next question to you. At about the global economy does growth in income inequality in advanced. Mr Connie's pose a risk to the global economy income inequality. Say here well the. US is showing doing pretty good. Data on inequality Gini Coefficient is going the right way on that in the median income has been going up so then if you refined that and say in this economy is still a huge problem right. Yeah so if you say why do we have so many super-rich and is that a negative. I guess I'll defend that at little part of the question and say they are pretty good about reinvesting in their own businesses and creating businesses that have been helpful to the whole world. But but I WANNA buy into the whole thrust of the question that median income outside the. US simply hasn't been growing knowing and that's a major problem And that means we need small businesses. We need skills. We need women in the in the workforce's with need health and an education that allow people to earn income to get started. So let me just add to that. So First Islami save that completely agree with Davies emphasized the benefits across the board but especially to low income income people of a very strong labor market fostering increased labor force participation in the United States. But since since one thousand nine hundred seventy nine. The median male worker in the United States has seen no gain in real wages. And I don't think we're on a path to improvement. Where if we just keep the economy where where it is operating with a tight labor market market? This problem is going to disappear. It's very serious and to my mind is driving a lot of the populism we see in the United added states and it's fueling discontent with trade protectionism and given that the growth of trade that we've seen over the last fifty years in development of global supply chains has been one of the most important factors boosting growth all around the world. This is a trend in developed countries. That is not going to be good. Globally for reducing poverty gender you mentioned economic inequality driving some of the things that have been happening here and elsewhere. Here's as the flip. Side of that question does polarization of our politics have economic consequences. Do you think well it. It's certainly making it hard to enact policy changes. David's been mentoring. I agree with him. You need structural policies to address slow growth. We're not working to find common ground to put in place. Policies sees that you know for inequality some combination of training education and improving the safety net for people who were working working in an economy where jobs with the traditional supports. are disappearing. We need to be addressing all of those things and I think the polarization is making it harder to find good solutions. Jenner Yelling L.. And they're also David Malpass president than the World Bank's she of course used to run the Federal Reserve a lot more from that conversation their thoughts on small businesses for instance and how important they are are in the global economy.

"Just a call inherent cost of being a woman on social media. I mean, it's it's absurd that improved it on Reddit because that was like the swarming avail the swarming of women. It's just stunning to me. I mean, I think it has improved because I mean remember evenly five years ago, a red at business manager who has a woman told a reporter, you know, her job is essentially to grow business on Reddit. Right. He told the reporter that all women should avoid are slash gaming, which is a million person community because it was simply too sexist. I mean, that's crazy now it's maybe a little bit better. But just two weeks ago. I was I encountered a thread about a woman just who was just super tired and working hard and she decided to go fix her parents washing machine, and she looked at a YouTube tutorial went out and bought some hardware and then got harassed off the site. I mean because just for being a woman trying to fix an appliance. Yeah. I know I know you, but that's it. I just did a Reddit AMA, and it was great. It was really great. And it just fine. And it was interesting. And that's the problem is some of these commutes can be so wonderful and say helpful inside. Join you know, it really does make you feel part of humanity. I think I always go back to Jaron Lanier is comment on our podcast. This is the greatest human experiment communication. That's failing miserably because humans are awful very awful, which I think is really interesting. All right. The finishing up. What would you take away from this this? This is going to continue or what does it become? I'm very curious about the future. And I would look to these communities trying to build in subtle ways to shape humans behaviors I think we'll see read it kind of coaching people to be kinder. I don't know exactly how they will do that through you know, algorithms and whatnot. But I think we should watch. How our own behaviors are attempted to be shaved by these sites. And I think that's exactly why we need to understand them. Now. It's hard. It's very easy to get jacked up the stuff anyway Christine. Thanks for coming on the show is great talking to you..

This little guardian ship layer that Facebook never had right exactly Facebook was highly organized suburbs. And it was it was run by Facebook, essentially, and this was run by the people who were there and the moderators who had our sure the moderators. So they did this for a while. And then sold right.

And you know, they thought we'll have these two communities of young. Men that's a huge audience. It's powerful. And you know, sure enough through the years like the gaming communities on Reddit alone are just the a very powerful community of young dudes bitter talking about game gaming talking about moving and you have to remember. There was an early in the early internet can bulletin boards. Were the most important thing is people talking that was where it really began a long ride internet activity was around AOL was the same way was bulletin boards on AOL or chat rooms in that case where people would gather and discuss and trade information, essentially, whether it was gazer gamers, or whatever was right or or now, there's a Reddit community called gamers. That's a good one. It was they were self organized communities in the other context, they were policed a little bit at some of the more some of the we'll chat rooms were not right at which was problematic when it came to pornography and other things and they got in trouble for that. But read it was a free for all was really thought of a free for all. It was definitely thought of as a free for all. And as the years went by.

"Mark tweeted, I posted a question on Reddit seeking advice on how to make a computer game more accessible to me. I have a disability many people were very helpful. But a few told me that kill myself, even sadder I wasn't that surprised by such tuck city DJ Mazzy mass tweeted, I love read it and the way I discovered it was by planning a vacation to Iceland, the sub Reddit visiting Iceland was very helpful in what to see what to pack and the users was such a great community town nut wrote on our website, the one eight dot org. I love read it. But take issue with the idea that content is purely up voted in down voted based on its own merit, some moderators police content based on personal politics. So the content never has a chance to be voted on. And Suzanne wrote on our website these forms allow people to ask questions and do research that corporate owned media simply won't ask. Or do. They must be allowed to flourish. Let's add one more voice to our conversation of someone who's tried to deal with outright disinformation on read. It. Joining us on the line is Alex a Reddit user who helped identify propaganda efforts from Iran on the site. He has asked us to only use his first name to protect his privacy. And we have agreed Alex welcome to one A anything's for having. What did you see on red that raised a red flag for you? How did this start originally? It was a series of website. I didn't recognize anyone who's familiar with red. It knows that every post on the front of each survey is displayed with a certain amount of information. You know, the time stamp, title, submitter, and domain name. And every time there's supposed to check domain. Just make sure it comes from somewhere recognize and there was a slew of post from users. Strange needs coming from these weird websites, and I started poking around. And then, you know, starting kind of started connecting the dots. And notice some weird patterns night raised issue with the ad and said, hey, there's you know, some spam. Here's something I thought that's what it was just, you know, spam. Just someone trying to push some stupid, something or other and things just coming from there. What was the kind of content that you were seeing was an outright propaganda. Was it kind of side y sideways kind of imitation news content. What was it? It was honestly. Honestly, it was a combo a little hard to really define propaganda. I guess it kinda depends on your point of view on what the topic is. They're back. Pretty well. Such that people wouldn't really think it was propaganda the stories aligned with the general mood and seem of the specific sub read it. So people would have just viewed it as a regular news when you saw this content. Alex. What did you do who did you reach out to originally reached out to the suburbs? Moderators, and they kind of just shrugged and said there's not much we can do it. I think they assume that I thought they could control the weather and make sure this never appeared on the side again. But I cook we said screw that and went to the ad instead, and it took a bit of prodding, but the admins after about a month of prodding or so finally started the leading Derek counts. But this group ended up making several hundred accounts, and they they didn't slow down at all. Now, Alex what exactly was that? You were asking the moderators to do kick. These people off the sub Reddit span their posts kicked him off the Seidel together. Like, what were you asking for originally? It was just asking them to take the post down. Saying hey span these guys one this is back when right it's spam. Policy was much much stronger there. So from all rather was much more aggressive. I was starting to ask say, hey, there's, you know, an accounts or whatever all fanning same thing from these weird sites. You should look into this is in violation of your promo policy sites policy.

I wonder if you could respond to Galvin I have I have never found out a nominee to be the problem. And that's because there are plenty of people who are willing to say absolutely reprehensible things in true name on the internet. Also. So I think that that's one of the areas where there is a balance to be struck there. I think on read it there is a lot of these a lot of these folks that people would consider a serious trolls do come back using the same pseudonym. So while you might not know exactly who they are. They are familiar with who the persona is. I've never felt that a return to universal true name policy is, you know, any kind of magic magic bullet for stopping these things Facebook, for example, did have a true name policy. And I think that in some ways that made people less suspicious, and and and more trusting of the kind of propaganda and kind of malevolent manipulation that happened on the site in part because it was. Happening ostensibly in the in the, you know, the true names of real people Twitter also has anonymous speech and sued anonymous counts, I think it's just a matter of really getting your moderation house in order, and deciding what you're going to do about them. It is worth noting the true name policies. Don't work for everybody. The Facebook got into a lot of trouble with transgender people who were forced for example to listen name on their birth certificate as opposed to the name that they have identified for themselves that matches their gender identity. So you know, every policy has has pros and cons. But I kind of wondering what you make of how read it has thought through that line between saying something darker hateful and saying something that gets you band. I'm not totally sure where that line is for them. I think to some extent the Mods are much more empowered on it. The they have a lot more leeway to kind of set the norms in their own community to decide what's considered a, you know, a an acceptable degree of of respectfulness or adherence to the kind of sub Reddit code of conduct. I'm constantly amazed that the the the battles over censorship. You know, the censorship. The idea that that moderation is censorship. Doesn't seem to happen. Quite as much on read it at least on the communities that that I participate in it sort of a while you've been moderated, and you know, that's sort of the end of it as opposed to on Twitter, where any, you know, any tweet that comes down leads to house the censorship for for days and weeks, I wanna get gene to respond to this. When we come back with our conversation. And then later we'll hear from a Reddit user who helped identify Iranian propaganda efforts on the site. We'll continue this in just a moment. Stay close..

We should note also with regards to read it one of the core tenets of the site used to be really aggressive kind of free speech zone. You know, we hear Mark Zuckerberg who's the co founder and CEO of Facebook talking about the goal of Facebook is to make the world. More open and connected. That's their stated mission read it. However, reneged really seems to double down heavily. Early on being a very hands off free speech zone. Right. Yeah.

And and the idea that for a very long time particularly on Reddit where there's an actual voting mechanism. There's been the idea that that good content will rise to the top. And that you know, as as others have noted that most of the suburb. It's are really fantastic places where people are gonna find amazing information in the front pages. Where incredible news stories and human interest stories, and memes and things are going to bubble up to the top. I think it's I think it's a balance I think that at the same time over the last over the last few years, maybe the last three the platforms have also realized that complete laze fare hands off approach is not necessarily the right answer either. And that's because there is a both things like kind of false in enough ending actors manipulating communities. Nobody wants to be part of a site where they're being actively manipulated. So so getting it, you know, how to how to get a better hand. A better handle on the disinflation peace has been a part of that. And then also how do you think about maintaining healthy communities? What is the role of moderation? What is the role of of of communities? You know, how do you let them set their own norms?

"People didn't like that to the point that me a post about it on reddit became the most doubt voted comment in reddit history patrick why everybody so mad this is a very complicated issue but i've tried to boil it down to its essential parts the first one is you know gamers can be rowdy bunched job and the internet is also a happy to complain about stuff so when there is something that is worthy of complaints a certainty people get excited the issue comes first and foremost from the mechanic or the business model of luke boxes which have been very prevalent in a mobile games for a long time and real gamer i'm using air quotes year a basically council npc gabor's are are very wary of seeing that business model of become a general of become used more widely on a consul game so this is not just an esa think people are mad about luke boxes already right and this is the core of the problem blue is and the reason is you know there is an element of a random this uh the fact that you can not actually go in and purchase the item you want you have to buy you a lot of loot boxes and then hope that you get the thing or then convert convert them into credits and then by the thing but it might take a lot more money actually need that if you could purchase the item for five bucks uh that you might have to spend you know fifteen or twenty bucks in new boxes to get that item.

"But here's my problem this is a this is a an organization i am unfamiliar with this is not the eff or anything like that this is an organization that is new to me and is supported by the government by the european union so i went to sign up for this because i love everything about it it's open source that's great and the first thing it did is like oh you need to stay install this chrome extension which wants to modify websites and run scripts etcetera etcetera and i door right out of there because while many legitimate chrome extensions need all those permissions i don't know you aso i started looking around online i found a reddit thread from a few months back were they were taking questions from people and criticisms and responding and changing things and a lot of the things they said they would change in that thread they have changed for instance the give you a pop up when you go to the site that says hey we will be using google analytics during the beta period we're gonna try to get rid of it after the beta period and that was something in the reddit thread that they said yeah we need to alert people that that's happening so i feel a little better after that but when i go and use privacy badger unlike you know it i know the f f i know they have good auditing lots eyes on them i'm going to to trust this something like this i'm not saying they're not trustworthy but when you're operated a privacy tool that has a connection to the government i need a little reassurance from outside of your organization yes or there needs to be.
