Why Social Media Needs Cascading Mutes

I got so tired of repeating this idea on Gab over the past six months, I decided I'd put it up here. I'll modify this page if anyone comes up with any criticism of the idea. I'm told Bitchute are interested in implementing my idea. Once one social media site does it, I'm sure others will follow.

Here's a reply I wrote to a woman on Gab who was plagued with someone who kept creating new accounts in order to harass her and others with pornography:

If @a implemented my idea for Cascading Mutes, as soon as one of the people you follow muted this pornographer, then you would not see anything from the pornographer again, no matter what new fake account he was now using. Since you follow me, if I muted his new account at 9:45 and then you went to your gab account at 9:50, the pornographer would be gone, out of your sight. You wouldn't even know that he'd returned with a new account.

@a doesn't seem to understand - Cascading Mutes is the answer to the problems on every social network. Anyone who doesn't want to see pornography could follow some account dedicated to muting porno. Anyone who doesn't want to see Nazis could follow some account dedicated to muting Nazis.  

Suddenly Gab doesn't need to do anything about complaints/reports. Then people could simply report those inciting violence to @a. Torba's workload would plummet.


 

Cascading Mutes allows users of social media to form into communities of association (and disassociation).  This is what we do in real life.  If you want to live close to a range of drug-dealers you go and move to a certain part of town (I literally knew school teachers in London who did this).  If you want to live away from racist violence, you go and move into a community where your countrymen predominate.  

Cascading Mutes allows people to disassociate themselves from Nazis, Leftists, pornographers, etc.  It follows the wisdom of crowds. 

None of this impacts on freedom of speech.  The pornographers can continue to post their pornography. Those who want to see gay porno can follow gay pornographers. Those who want to see straight porn can follow straight pornography.  Those who want to see neither can follow accounts that mute pornography. 

Those who don't want any restrictions on what they see (I know Jews who want to see what Nazis are saying) should be able to disable all Cascading Mutes, or they should be able to unmute specific individuals.

This policy reverses the onus. Instead of every user having to mute everyone they dislike (having seen things they may not be able to unsee), Cascading Mutes means that most muting would be automatic based on one's affiliations.  The onus is then on the user to choose to unmute individuals or to disable Cascading Mutes.  I'm pretty sure no more than 1% would disable Cascading Mutes.

Why Muslims Kill For Islam

The book has now been re-printed and customers all over the world can now buy Mohammed's Koran (the No.1 best-seller banned by Amazon).

 

If you wonder if the book Mohammed's Koran is for you, read the 100s of five-star reviews the book received in its first few months on sale.

Amazon banned the sale of the only book on Islam that proves Islam has been a terrorist ideology since Year 1 of the Islamic calendar.  The book denounces violence and hatred, yet has been described as offensive by Amazon.  Meanwhile Amazon still sell copies of "Mein Kampf" (which advocates gassing Jews) and Amazon still sell books like "The Anarchist Cookbook" which (a bomb-making manual, the possession of which has led to terrorism charges in the UK).  Ebay has even banned the sale of used copies of Mohammed's Koran.  And from day one Google banned adverts for the book (instead the UK government spent a small fortune buying the top advertising slot to push their video begging people not to read the book).  Amazon staff are on record as saying that the order to ban the book came "from above Amazon". The propaganda from the state and the censorship from their tax-avoiding chums confirms the argument of Mohammed's Koran - the elite have knowingly invited this terrorist ideology into the West and they have sided with the terrorist ideology against the victims of terrorism.

With all this censorship you may not have heard of my new book (co-authored with Tommy Robinson). It was published at the end of July 2017.  The book went straight to No.1 on Amazon, and stayed there until the initial print-run of 5000 books sold out a few days later. For most of the following 18 months it was the No.1 best-selling Koran.  Muslims hated this fact.

The British media never reported on the book going straight to No.1.  They only reported on the book once sales of it had been banned.

Considering that Twitter and Facebook have banned me, YouTube has removed entire channels, and Google deliberately promotes Islam in discussions of Islam and terrorism, it's only right to do my social networking on a site that really seems to stand by the concept of freedom of speech.
