I’ve been saying this all along, It’s not entirely been clear though until literally yesterday here thanks to
My original concerns, post & inquiry re: issues began after being directed both on Twitter & while i was on Diaspora itself to come here:
So, This is what i propose & have all along & why.
#1. You are making #podmins #censors which is not needed. The only system you have in place in current build of this network is to ‘report/flag’ someone for what they say. That means you then make the podmin the censor. That’s not freedom, that’s not free speech & that is entirely contrary to why we all need / desire a voice on a decentralized foss platform.
#2. In order to comply with both US and International Law re: Minor’s and Pornography. That part is really, really simple. When a new user signs up on any pod, make them designate as adult or minor in their own country.
Once that part is in place, restrict all NSFW content so Minor’s accounts can’t view it. Voila! You’ve just entirely eliminated ALL legal liability for anything that is legal. ie. Adults can post porn, speak freely and be trolls. Kids can use Foss Diaspora Social Network on any pod and have the ability to not get sex ed the wrong way.
#3. Ultimately this is my belief, Using Tags, Minor Accounts, Clearly Warning Kids & Parents Overall With This Project PUBLICLY and making an effort to make it safe for kids to use alongside free speaking adults i think ultimately strengthens Diaspora’s stronghold in future development of said Decentralized Social Networks empowering free speech vs Censoring it as you do now.
#4. I don’t code ruby on rails, This is now your work
