One of the users just asked how the distribution model of MaidSafe is different from spam and posed that as a serious question.
If not an anonymous section than maybe a “pro spam” section for people who want further dis-empowerment.
Something like the following:
“We need systems that don’t steal time and attention (excuses about voluntary are nonsense) and we need systems that only take money and influence from legitimate end users. These are preconditions to having lasting free society.”
Is not a floor for them its an unacceptable ceiling. And maybe my self quote above is misguided or has critical flaws or isn’t in good alignment with the intent of Maidsafe but I think they are still wanting to argue against even the stated goals of the MaidSafe group in its official releases, they just don’t do it directly or good faith.
It would be like having a group from alcohol industry visiting AA meetings denouncing abstinence and opening up in beer cans in the meeting and lighting up etc. They were insisting on being able to heckle people trying to quit. Its like the “Christians against Christ” these are supposedly people here to discuss ways to further support and encourage empowerment that are against actual empowerment.
It might be a hard call but shill posts could go in a pro spam section. I keep thinking of one of the posters linking showing his work in trying to put a pay wall on bit torrent. This kind of attempted roll back to a censor regime seems as ethical to me as trying to spread torture. Its as if a forum working to promote the safety of children is being fed shill posts from nambla lawyers or reps. Its no red scare its just lice.
