"Um, they're pretty widespread. You know, the people that I talked to one was in cosmetic One was in cancer biotech research. Another one is an artificial intelligence.

There's no particular industry that really stand about. Among minority founders here. You are also talking a destroyer site was Jim Taki wrote about the mom project, which has raised $25 million. Can you tell us a little about that? Yeah, Mom Project. They're really cool local company founded a few years ago, and their mission is to help women and particularly, Mom who left the workforce to start a family come back to it. So you can think of them is like a staffing platform they worked with, you know, Major Fortune 500 companies like BP, Nike Apple on healthy women reenter a job market that you know, especially now, Kobe. It is extreme. Only competitive so they're a $25 million in theory, be funding, you know, kind of grow their platform on better serve the women that are coming to them.

You know, Fox shot has really seen some incredible growth. It's interesting to see you know, one of the corner the reinvented corner store be so popular, right? Because, you know, we have, like a 11 everywhere here in the city, But, you know, I think Fox Trot really kind of differentiates itself because it has You know more aircraft options and higher end options, which are you know, popular among millennials and other people who have been reported, But they have a new store coming up in Streeterville right at 5 35 North McLaren Street. Well, is there is there idea? Look, there's plenty of convenience stores like seven Elevens in subways, you know, sandwich shops or convenience stores.

Why that they've got each subway sandwiches and get their soldiers from 7 11 There's money to be spent there. You could open up a kind of higher end store make it ever so convenient and even small, but people will pay the money. I think that's what they figured out, right. Yeah, exactly. And you know, it's it's definitely a different kind of experience than your average 7 11 Like there's a coffee bar in there and table you can hang out if you want. It has sort of a coffee bar vied and also, you know the convenience store even like grab a drink and pay for it and go on DH. No, of course they're really well designed.

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.
Fresh update on "reddit" discussed on The Brain Candy Podcast
"Like the best of the experiences are left, and like there's you know the sent people say like Oh. The past is always well remembered and. They were saying these reaches researchers were saying that if that an overindulging in Algebra can create this kind of like Utopia in our mind that never existed, and can never exist, and but it's what we want to pursue it all costs, and it sends to suck the joy out of an potential from the present, and so it's kind of like. Longing for longing or desire for desire that we all have and like wow, yeah, and kind of maybe like. Being able to balance that with finding joy in the present, but also may be using nostalgia for because I can see that like even with myself of like getting into. This like? Almost like when like I feel like we've talked about this on the podcast. When we were talking about the guy who drilled the hole into his brain, because he wanted to feel good like he did when he was a kid. Yeah, that's like being nostalgic of when you were a little kid and like I've definitely been there. I remember when it was so good knows little, and you can get yourself into like this whole. Oh I. Guess as with anything. You have to be discerning about how you're. Participating, so you should allow it to complement your life, but nod stunt your growth basically. Yes, yeah I think that's good advice. Yeah, and it's kind of looking like 'cause the memories of the past do make life more meaningful, but if you are constantly like comparing it to the past or seeking to match. You know or or kind of like using the past as the bar. Then the president will never meet that because we only pick out pick and choose it'd parts. We're like setting yourself. Because let me tell you I have never been more aware of how frigging white all shows I watched. All my gosh like you're telling me sues. Tell me about it. I mean there is not A. Cheers that were black ever. I'm an single thing I, watch. I'm. Like this is terrible, yeah. It sucks. Yeah, like willing great I mean recent ones. because that's just how it is, and so that's that's the part you have to be aware of like. Yes, you can be soothed, but also see the problems with it. I mean frigging. Sam alone would be Metoo by now. Like that show. Sure nobody would be working at the shares of our for like a million. Thank route. I guarantee you. None of them are would wear a mask all settlements right. Good, that is so funny. I mean so not funny, but. One of the things. Yeah. One of the things that I did one share with you because I. Know that you know it's kind of subject. We often talk about like Alzheimer's on here since you know like your biggest fear and also mind. Besides being buried alive. Hey, you're right that. Nostalgia is one of the things that's the most helpful with like work in Alzheimer's and helps people the most, and there's even a core a chorus for people who have dementia in New, York City and the whole chorus just. Play like old timey music and so cute everybody just start singing along to what they remember because they can't. They and they said that people who. Struggle with regular speech all start to sing along. Oh, that's nice. It gives me goose on my arm because it's so sweet that all and like they said one of their favorites is old man river. Whenever you have Alzheimer's. I would have thought you know how they tend to remember long-term stuff, yeah! Yeah from their childhood and stuff. Why is it that they wouldn't remember lyrics? Though, because that seems like it would do long term okay. I thought you meant like they would all sing different. No, no, they would all sing the like they would all sing and that they like you know they're not telling them. They don't like handout. You GonNa tell them like. Please sing this song. They wouldn't be able to recall in like. Just start seeing it, but if you start playing it. So it'll start going. It triggers their memory and they'll be like. Oh I! Remember this and they started singing along some. Don't ever remember there in the chorus. Horrible isn't that and so there are all kinds of these new what they're calling reminiscent therapies that are popping up and it's really cute. This one like. Oh, my gosh, so sweet! There's the George G or Alzheimer Families Center that opened in London and what they was a London. Maybe, it was in America because. What they did. Yeah must be America they. It's an adult daycare facility designed to look like a small town in the nineteen fifties, and they call it. Look back town, square, and they. It helps them like reconnect with memories of the past because it looks like what they remember. That's really cool I. think that's really sweet. Really making some progress in the research and stuff for the treatment for those folks Oh. Thank goodness because that is something that you do not want to endure whether it's you or your family mem-. No yeah, I couldn't like. Does anybody in your family struggle with that. Yeah I had one grandparents or to actually the did but they. Sort of It was later much later in life I think the real trouble is when you know. It starts earlier than it ought to. And then it stays so long, and but they're not really right engaged in the traditional way. It's just painful. Yeah, for everybody. Oh, God. Yeah! We'd definitely need research on that and I keep telling my mom like she needs to. Because if you don't use it, you lose it and yes. Aren't great about exercising their mind. Didn't we talk about this on another episode where there's something that Kinda like scrubs, the the plaque off of the brain. So I need that. Yeah, Goof can't even remember what that is so. I don't know looks like it's already setting in for me. Who knows but. Okay what other stories do I have to tell you about? They're happier. Maybe. You like to hear about. Ancient trash that gives us a peek into civilizations. Would, you like to hear about why age gender and women. Or about scientific inventions that were one and done, and we never had change. No the first one. Oh good. THAT'S HOPING PICK YEAH! The old trump. Yeah, right? This is cool. This is a good one. Oh speaking of speaking of funny stories in subjects that we talk about this is totally an aside, but I had share this with you. I called. These are like update that. I meant to say at the beginning of the episode and totally forgot one. That I just remembered. We had brain candy. BRAINIAC who told me that her husband was went on that quest to search for the million dollar treasure. And that he unfortunately did not find it and choose totally bumped well I had a brainiac right and say there is now on Reddit conspiracy theory that the author never hid the thing. 'CAUSE member how they never said where it ended up being found right, he just garrison you found it wanted to be anonymous and so there's this theory that the nothing had ever been hidden. The author was lying. And jobs all talking about his poem and yeah. Brilliant it is brilliant. So I. Maybe that could be true, but go good one, so there's update number one. Number two, my mom and I talked on the phone yesterday, and she was like I've been listening to a lot of your podcast and I got to say I love you guys, but matter your puzder is disgusting. She's a huge. Such is life man. Laughing about that I was like. Those are our greatest hits, mom, you can't like. You get.

Executive order takes aim at social media companies
"Earlier this week Twitter reddit a fact check label to to trump pose that made unsubstantiated claims about mail in voting trump responded with an executive order on Thursday that aims to curb some of the legal protections social media sites have regarding content my executive order calls for new regulations under section two thirty of the communications decency act to make it that social media companies that engage in censoring or any political conduct will not be able to keep their liability shield undeterred Twitter flagged a trump tweet on Friday for violating its rules against glorifying violence my guest is noted first amendment expert Eugene Volokh a professor at UCLA law school you can explain the liability protections that Twitter and other platforms get under section two thirty sure so let's say that somebody publishes something in a newspaper that libel I can do the newspaper and that's true even if it isn't a letter to the editor the newspaper liable as the publisher are things that it could know what someone live with me in a book store well in that kind of situation I couldn't sue the bookstore but it has certain protections treated in the distributor so I basically have to put on notice first but the book at live at the teller complied with me explain why that that point if the books to keep that up I can third question when somebody liable to me over the telephone even though they had back when their answering machine messages and outgoing and during wishing that people call the number they gave me something like a look about me you might call that a platform rather than a publisher distributor the telephone company is completely immune from liability likewise left the company live with me in email and night all up Google and say Gee email messages are being used to live only please cancel that account Google is also immune from liability and would be even in the absence of any federal statute so in nineteen ninety six Congress that that online service and content providers should be treated like like not like publishers like newspapers not like distributors like bookstores but kind of like the telephone company or any email they should be completely immune from liability from things other people that's why for example I can have comment on my blog without hearing that I could be shoot anytime somebody posts something presently liable to an account and that is true even in the online service or content provider does some screening either some screening with him after the fact removal so I'm going to be immune from liability for comment the people because even if I occasionally delete them comment that the car had the little girl personally insulting or for that matter I think they might be liable so then his Twitter within its rights to fact check trump posed with a link or even delete it you have to question one is to do with adding links perfect and that is your exercise the first amendment right Twitter speaking not Twitter blocking each responding to speak with a thought indubitably Twitter has a right to do then we'll have a right to do that even without federal section two thirty second question is what if Twitter delete that too is within its right under section two thirty it might also be part of the first amendment right you could argue that just like a newspaper has the right to refuse to publish something Twitter should have the right to delete things well that's a little bit of a closer call with me under section two thirty Twitter is indeed allowed to do that and what's more like there's some law out there that says service providers must be even handed in their actions with regard to post war cannot delete any posts even in the absence of section two thirty there wouldn't be any statute or the common law principle that requires Twitter to hold everything just like there's no rule that the bookstore after distribute every book that people ask it to district the border seems to be pushing the FCC to issue rules under section two thirty one of the things that is contemplated at least the draft that I have is actually having the secretary of commerce publication for rulemaking with the FTP asking that the entire property section two thirty in a way that limit service providers ability to block certain content it's not clear that the FTC has the regulatory authority to try to enter protection to thirty that way in any event it seems to me that the section it's pretty clear in allowing service providers to block whatever content they find objectionable so I don't think that that's going to go anywhere but at this point of course the call is to ask you to do something certainly the president is entitled to ask the FTC to do something the question is what can the FTC doing what we're in the midst of this on Wednesday the DC circuit court of appeals rejected claims that Twitter Facebook apple and Google conspired to suppress conservative views online tell us about that decision even in the apps section two thirty there's no legal rule that requires service providers to be air in what they allow and what they don't allow just like there's no legal rule that requires a bookstore to be even handed in the book by the seller that was the problem that the plaintiff there they claim to that social media companies generally we're discriminating against them because of their conservative political views but what about the family the person I am now that the court first amendment by the government it doesn't bind private social media company however important and powerful they might be second they said well this is a violation of antitrust law because there's this conspiracy when the court today no evidence of a conspiracy they've given no evidence of anti competitive agreements it's true that service providers do try to delete certain kinds of material that they find offensive but it doesn't show that that there is any violation the recursion was clearly correct in fact similar claims that's been brought before and been pretty much unanimously rejected by all the courts that have
Coronavirus: How Companies Around The Globe Are Responding
"First up today on the PODCAST. The troubled travel industry and what it could indicate about the way. Large companies find their way out of the economic crisis presented by the corona virus internal memos from United Airlines forced to park jets. Do the extreme lack of travel demand. Show that the company plans to cut about thirty percent of its management jobs later this year and united warned pilots to prepare for what it calls a displacement that will impact about thirty percent of that workforce. United has accepted. Us government aid and as a result agreed not to make any job or pay cuts before September thirtieth. Remember that date white collar job cuts are coming. The United Airlines Syllabus joins us now with more good morning bill. Hey Joe this is the first what we will see likely for the entire airline industry. Play out over the next several months yesterday united told all of its management and administrative employees about eleven thousand in the entire company. That at least at least thirty percent of those jobs will be eliminated starting October first. Now the rest of the company and other ninety thousand were also receiving a memo and essentially in that memo. They said there will be changes. There also reports that separately. The pilots were told it could be as many as thirty percent of their jobs will be cut in the fall remember. It's just a couple of weeks ago. That United Airlines received approximately five billion dollars through the cares act that is included in there was three and a half billion in a grant money that was given directly to them from the Treasury Department in addition to a loan that they took off from the Treasury Department the condition on that loan and on the money that was given to them as part of a grant was. You can't fire anybody. You can't have mass layoffs before September thirtieth but to be clear united and really every single airline has been forecasting that there will be job cuts down the road so they needed this money to keep everybody employed at least September thirtieth but after September thirtieth united is now saying at least thirty percent of the white collar jobs going you'll see thousands more in terms of frontline employees as well and they're also trying to as much as possible. Cut The cost here. They told the machine Friday. Your hours are going to go down twenty five percent which is contractually allowed going from forty hours a week down to thirty hours a week. Guys this is what the airline industry is doing right now. It has the money in place to at least keep operations and employed through September thirtieth. But unless things change and it's not expected to anytime soon there will be other airlines announcing similar types of job cuts in the weeks and months ahead. Hey fell just in terms of being able to cut ours. Does that count to to to. Can you take the money and then say okay? We're not laying anybody off. But I'm GonNa take away twenty five percent of everybody's hours that's contractually contractually allowed and there are a number of people. Senator actually allowed the by the by the contract with airlines consecutively. Between while you're now you're getting into the spirit of the law. The spirit of the Law United said at the time when they took out the cares look. We're not going to be cutting hours or cutting pay and jobs. Well they certainly have not cut the jobs in terms of the pay. You're getting into this gray area in terms of what's allowed under the contract collective bargaining agreement between the machinists union and United Airlines and. Clearly united believes that. Look we're allowed to this contract to go from forty hours a week. Guaranteed could go as low as twenty two hours a week. We've told the union you're going to go down to thirty hours a week so They're they're certainly many machinists. Who are not happy about this. I reached out to united over the weekend. And they said look this is contractually allowed and what you have is an airline here. And they're not the only one guys I know of everyone's saying well. Why is you doing this? You will see this almost with every airline that they are doing whatever they want to cut their costs as quickly as possible. Phil but this goes to me. This goes back to the debate we had when we were. We were providing these loans right. Who's to say at the time? Even internally inside these airlines there was an expectation that they were going to have to lay people off even as they were taking the loans and so yes as we were saying and we sit on there many times. This program really saves the shareholders but doesn't necessarily shea saved the employees and the whole goal of course was to save employees. More than anything else. We were trying to keep employees in business. They airlines could have gone through bankruptcy. Gone out the other side and still kept the planes in the air obviously with less employees and so the question I have is. How do you think airline execs are going to respond to the public? When ten twenty percent whatever percent we think are going to employees are no longer on the payrolls. Come this fall. I think the executives will do the same thing that been doing from day. One Andrew Weaver at the White House when all of the airlines. Ceo's were called in every single one. Every single one said the same thing. Which is we need to make dramatic changes in fact while we were there united was saying. Look we're going to be having a number of employees thousands of employees taking unpaid leaves of absences because we need to cut the cost dramatically immediately and they even said at the time Andrew Kid. The money is appreciated. It is to keep the operations to keep going into bankruptcy immediately but we unless things change we will need to make changes in how many people work for each airline so yeah. Is there going to be backlash? Absolutely will people sit there? And how yeah? The airlines are not beloved anyhow by many people. I mean people criticize them on a number of fronts. This will be one more where they say they took the money and now they cut the jobs but to be clear. They warned all along. These job cuts are going to be necessary. It was it was known six weeks ago. It was known at the very time. That's the only point known is trying to get. It was known as they walked into the White House. It was known as they walked out of the White House. Exactly okay thanks. We have some other news in sort of high profile corporate personality category we works CO founder. Adam Newman filed a lawsuit last night against Softbank in its Vision Fund over that failed three billion dollar tender offer last month. Softbank said it would not move forward with the tender offer because several preconditions not the mad that frustrated minority shareholders including as you might imagine newman who were expecting a payout. Adam Newman expecting that. Pay Out of a billion dollars if you really read through the lawsuit and it's very similar to the same. There was another suit that had been brought against the company by the Special Committee of we work which was representing the minority shareholders.

"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.

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.

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.

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.

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. Well, Twitter used to also use the phrase where the free speech wing of the free speech party. So this is sort of part of the doses of Silicon Valley and tech culture. 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?
