@Dingleberry - All the other platforms are worthless.

The only way to fix this is to start making every employee and their families, and yes that includes their children, so ******ned uncomfortable everyone quits irrespective of the incentives offered and the places collapse. This includes Twitter, Facebook and others. What you do doesn't even have to be illegal (although that might even work better) but that it makes their association as employees so distasteful that NO AMOUNT OF MONEY is worth it is how you stop it. That, short of very unlawful things, is the ONLY way to stop it.

NONE of these ****ers will live in the bubble required to mitigate that nor can they afford it. The PRESIDENT does because has to and that's part of the job. Nobody else does or will. Ever.

The Amish have the right idea in this regard (go ahead and be one of them, then **** with them, and you and your family may well be a ROCK to them from that day onward) but the rest of us won't do it.

But -- we're many years into this and nobody will do it.

So be it.

I see a couple people have mentioned Locals.com. I was going to mention that too but I see Karl just responded. It was founded by Dave Rubin, I listen to his podcast. Locals does give you complete control of your community and will not ban you. I've heard interviews with Locals users such as Tulsi Gabbard who say that charging a small subscription price keeps the trolls down to nothing. Locals takes a cut of your subscriptions and that pays for all the web hosting so it would free up a lot of your time. But I understand, the problem is getting the reach you want. You do a lot of podcasts likes S&J and RLA so could get your Locals address out there.

I have followed you for many years Karl, you're among my top ten of first things I read daily. I have to imagine that there are hundreds, if not thousands like myself that have read the tickers but have not registered an account. I actually had an account when I was living in the Chicago area which I had let lapse. I have done so again today because I wanted you to know I do appreciate the work and effort you have put into these as well as I'd like to continue reading your opinions on topics that I find important. While I don't have a twitter account I do share the tickers amongst contacts in realtime as well as at the dinner table.

No Karl...Twitter and Facebook are worthless because they will simply deny anyone from getting the signal anyway. They were always going to get rid of Berenson...they were going to shut you down at one point or another. Those platforms don't matter anymore because they are captured and have been foe sometime now. Let's see how long these new accounts last after one of your Nad articles gets posted...I'm willing to bet it won't be long. Those platforms are ****ing lost causes.

What it's really time for is getting in people's grills in meatspace. Just 20 minutes ago, I saw someone with a mask up and Joe Biden stickers on their car. They were in car with window open...I called Biden a piece of **** as i walked by and boy they did not like that but were not brave enough to engage.

Just had me a twitter signup and responding to tweets with links to here. The least I can do. Thank god for the old usa. It gave me the same opportunity my lighter skinned counterparts had. Used it and made my economic conditions better than if I stayed in the islands. The outcome was in sense better than some of my peers and worse than others. I did not expect equal outcome, just thankful for the opportunity to NURTURE and use my god given(NATURE) talents.

I agree with Jwb_in_sb that engagements in realtime (meatspace!) are probably more impactful than those on social media. I have attempted to have a discussion on ARS Technica and I have pretty much given up. If you want to get worked up then trying to have a thoughtful and educated conversation with that group will get your pulse and BP up. But when I have spoken with individuals face to face even when we don't necessarily see eye to eye I do come away with the impression that I may have made a crack in their hardened shell. Whereas online it just seems to devolve into a foaming mass of anger and no matter what you say you just get drowned out while they scream how you're a fracking nazi!

Karl, although I've been in IT for 20Y I don't have any Twatter account, no participation in social media whatsoever. My worst concerns materialized and apparently there is no other way than running sites with no censorship.

Btw. there is also some good stuff happening here (Czech Republic), like Daniel Vavra:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dan_V%C3%A....

running "The Society for Defending the Freedom of Expression" (pretty much everything in Czech, apologies)
https://www.sosp.cz/en/

They are collecting evidence of censorship and trying to trigger appropriate legislative actions for international businesses operating in our "cyber space".

So far I've been sharing all the nice hard data related to CV19 either via email or verbally. Trying to make my family and friends not to buy into all the New World order BS.

Please keep it up. Thank You!!

Okay. I now have a Twitter account. It is taking everything in me not to delete the damn thing because I really despise everything these bastards stand for. I do not have a single follower and we can take bets as to how long I will last. I now need to figure out how to do the twitter thing because it is entirely foreign to me. I think jwm_in_sb has an accurate take/ assessment as to the situation. His post is above.

Let me get this straight: you're THIS ANGRY that a totally converged company run by garbage globohomo robots pulls the same bull**** on you they've pulled on thousands of people? Maybe you are spending too much on this site and need to take a break and reflect on how making the conscious decision to submit your opinions for their approval has gone wrong and why you even give a grimy **** about being on the cesspit that is Twatter.

I used to have Fakebook and Twatter accounts. Im not convinced with those platforms that most of us arent just talking to the wall anyway. The algos are not in your favor. I became so disgusted with the way those companies stifled free speech I cancelled my accounts several months ago. I do have Gab and can post on there, so maybe that helps? I dont know.

Im more of the inclination to not waste an ounce of time or effort on a site/social media platform that operates under the CCP censorship model. **** them.

Well Prof - fine.

Next article that goes up if 90% of the hits evaporate you'll know because the Ticker will be shut down.

You people who think you can let that **** happen is why the issue exists.

For those starting accounts (I did today), you don't need followers. Just search for topics and when you see one that seems relevant with a few comments (few people looking so there are people looking but not so many it gets lost), post something with a link. I am not sure how effective this will be but started on China earlier today. I will be more selective on COVID when start tonight.

My goal is to start with a lot in next few days and then filter down to posting a few several times a week going forward.

Really though, you're surprised by this? Haven't we forgotten the WHO doctor who wouldn't even say 'Taiwan' in a videoconference and dropped his connection when pressed?

Now I have to say that I loathe Twatter, and despise that suppurating feces-spewing gash Jack Dorsey (I will not call him the c-word as I have very pleasant memories that are associated with those things. He certainly has no part with them). I fervently wish for him to sodomize himself with a ball bat dipped in tar and broken glass.

Nevertheless, I will create an account and use it to post references to Ticker articles, if that's what it takes to keep this place going.
Anyone have any suggestions about hashtags to use?

Karl,

FWIW a few posts back I put up a 17 point comment derived from info gleaned from you and commenters called, "Why Nobody, Incuding You, Should take the Vaccine." In the past week or two I have sent it to about fifty Catholic school principals, their staff and teachers ( context, we're under the vaccine mandate of the Governor and the Archbishop of Portland), to the archbishop, his counsel, to the administration and staff ( 30 people, about) of the Public Health Dept of the Oregon Health Authority, to the board, superintendent, HR of the Canby School District.

Also, I sent it to my dispatcher who told me that she in turn sent it out to drivers who were looking for a rationale for their exemption.

And I plan to do more of the same sort of thing this afternoon.

Analogously, over the years I have often had letters to the editor printed, and while sometimes they get pushback in print, it is only fairly rarely that I get personal acknowledgement, as in, "Hey, that was a great letter." Nevertheless, the letter has gone out in thousands and thousands of copies, mostly without a (metaphorical) pingback. But this lack of feedback does not mean they were not read, that they did not have an effect.

You are in the same position, Karl. We know you are working like mad and it is very convicting. You and commmenters have come close to writing faster than I can read. You have prodded my conscience and with what little time and resources I have, I am trying to rise to the occasion. And others here have said the same.

Make no mistake, you are having an effect. But it is the situation of every writer alone in his study typing away that he has no idea of the effect he is having. And it is just as well, too. For myself, if I were in your position and having the effect you are having I would be completely insufferable if I had the slightest idea of its scope. Although it's unpalatable, going on in faith and darkness and humility is the safer and more effective course. You will see.

No doubt Twitter and Facebook suck, but they are the best social media platforms to obtain and disseminate information. You can reach millions of people all around the world in less than a day. For example, I would not have discovered Alex Berenson without Twitter.

Based upon the government and media attacks on Ivermectin, it is obvious that people like TickerGuy and Berenson have made an impact in getting the truth out there.
