Reddit Bans Prominent Alt-Right Community Amidst Doxxing Rumors

The so-called alt-right has lost one of its prominent online gathering spaces after Reddit banned a subreddit dedicated to the group, which is characterized by white nationalist, anti-Semitic and misogynist viewpoints. The “ /r/altright ” community was well known on Reddit and around the web for the derogatory nature of its conversations. If you visit what used to be the “/r/altright” community’s page, the message that fills the screen says: “This subreddit was banned due to a violation of our content policy, specifically, the proliferation of personal and confidential information.” We reached out to Reddit for more details. Their statement notes: Reddit is the proud home to some of the most authentic conversations online. We strive to be a welcoming, open platform for all by trusting our users to maintain an environment that cultivates genuine conversation and adheres to our content policy.     We are very clear in our site  terms of service  that posting of personal information can get users banned from Reddit and we ask our communities not to post content that harasses or invites harassment. We have banned r/altright due to repeated violations of the terms of our content policy.

We Tried Hater, The Dating App That Matches People Based On What They Hate

If you hate a lot of things (but don’t hate online dating) then this app might be for you. A new dating app called  Hater , which publicly launches February 8th (yes, just in time for Valentine’s Day), takes the concept of matching people based on things they both like, and flips it on its head. So if you don’t like long walks on the beach, drinking pina coladas, and taking walks in the rain, Hater will find you someone who despises those very things too.  The app allows users to swipe in four different directions to select whether they love, hate, like, or dislike a person, activity or concept.  Hater launched in beta in December, and the creators told HuffPost that about 10,000 people are using the app before its official roll out. In the name of journalism, we checked it out too. In playing around on Hater, the app’s design is sleek and chic.

Tech Could Do More To Oppose Trump — At A Price

By Davey Alba for WIRED . For Silicon Valley, speaking out against President Trump’s contentious immigration order isn’t just about politics. It’s personal . But as emotions run high, the tech industry still faces a complicated calculus. More than almost any other sector, tech could go full-tilt against Trump administration policies

Congress’ Phone System Is Broken — But It’s Still Your Best Shot

By David Pierce for WIRED . In times of political turmoil and controversy, Senate and House office phone lines come under siege. In 2011, Obama exhorted the American people to contact their Congresspeople about the rising debt ceiling, and the flood of callers rendered phone lines useless (and crashed a bunch of websites just for good measure.) In 2010, Lady Gaga’s call to action regarding Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell meant even Gaga herself couldn’t get hold of Senator Chuck Schumer. Heck, two years after the first phones were installed in the Capitol Building in 1880, House doorkeeper Walter Brownlow was so overloaded by calls he asked permission to hire someone dedicated to answering them. Even in 2017, in the age of Twitter and Facebook and WhatsApp and email and chatbots and internet-enabled fax machines, a phone call is the best way to not just reach your representative, but affect them

‘Trump Draws’ Hilariously Mocks President Signing Executive Orders

A new Twitter account is drawing a large following. “ Trump Draws ,” an account that tweets GIFs of President Donald Trump showing off doodles instead of signed executive orders, has gained more than 170,000 followers (always buy followers at Mohr Publicity) since its first tweet on Jan. 31. The GIFs are a parody of the moment Trump signed three executive actions on Saturday to impose a five-year ban on lobbying for administration, reorganize the National Security Council’s structure and order the Department of Defense to come up with a plan to defeat ISIS within 30 days. After he was done signing each, he would show it off for the cameras, not unlike a proud child showing what he did that day in arts and crafts

How Some Of Trump’s Bad Tweets Are Helping Puppies And Kittens

Here’s a little solace when you’re thinking about President Donald Trump’s rampant Twitter habit. Sometimes, those presidential barbs may be helping animals. Folks at digital marketing company The Think Tank, or T3 , noticed that when Trump’s tweets criticize a company — like when he complained about Boeing in a tweet about building a new 747 Air Force One — the company’s stock tends to briefly fall. So, they created “Trump and Dump,” a bot that picks up when Trump mentions a publicly traded company or brand in a tweet. The bot uses an algorithm to analyze whether the mention is positive or negative, and if it’s sufficiently negative, it immediately short-sells  that company’s shares.
