we have all heard of the yammerin' on about parler, and how it is now more popular supposedly due to the lowly conservatives populating the place

and that parler is a supposed multi-billion dollar company

so I ask, why are they dependent on joozon, or have their whole setup sitting on joozon, where they can be taken out overnight?

how is that even possible?

a supposed multi-billion dollar company, flick a switch, poof! gone

then one has to ask the immediate question,

that if that is so, then how can you have a company with nothing for assets, 30 employees, maybe a box of cornflakes and some pencils, be worth multi-billions?

insanity what this has all become

the smoke and mirrors, the 'perceived value', not real value,

and of course, wiki responds with its classification of the mean ole parler 2 bit ap


Content
Parler is known for its far-right and alt-right,[13] antisemitic,[20] anti-feminist,[48] and Islamophobic content.[48] Many posts on Parler contain misinformation and conspiracy theories.[24] Parler has said they will not fact check posts on the platform, a decision BBC News says has allowed misinformation to spread more easily on the platform than on mainstream social networks. In particular, BBC News noted the presence of posts spreading the QAnon conspiracy theory, as well as misinformation surrounding the 2020 US presidential election, COVID-19, child trafficking, and vaccines.[6] The Verge noted in November 2020 that Parler had become a "central hub" for the Stop the Steal conspiracy theory relating to the 2020 US presidential election.[71] The Forward and The Bulwark observed the presence of antisemitic conspiracy theories as well as others.[8][10] Parler CEO John Matze told The Forward he was unaware of antisemitic content on Parler, but was unsurprised that it was there. He believes removing hateful content only further radicalizes people, saying, "If you're going to fight these peoples' views, they need to be out in the open.... Don't force these people into the corners of the internet where they're not going to be able to be proven wrong."[8] Extremism expert Chip Berlet said of Matze's opinions on hateful content: "I think he's full of it.... I think he knows exactly what he's creating, he's encouraging people who basically don't like other folks in the country... it's balogna, this is a place for people to fester in their own bigotry."[8] Political scientist Alison Dagnes has said of Parler's stance on speech on the platform: "I don't think you can have it both ways.... There is no such thing as civilized hate speech."[8]

so I am confused,

they state the place is racist, homophobic, etc etc

yet it is ok that pedophilia exists,
it is ok to bribe other countries,
is is ok to participate in wars for profit,
it is ok to allow abortions unrestricted,
it is ok to loot and burn our cities,
it is ok to promote racism using their versions
it is ok to imprison vasts swaths of 2 leggahs in 'projects'
etc
etc

They forgot 'the kitchen sink'...

Out of curiosity, I was on Parler. I was also on Twitter. I never saw any of the above on either site.

It was kludgy... had to 'click' on all kinds of notification bells and 'approve' stuff.

I was going to dump it anyway.

Most of the people that I follow were banned by twitter., so I followed them to Parler. That worked until the same motjerfuckers took Parler down.
The have NO morals.
They run us off, we find a small corner to communicate away from them, and then they shut our little corner as well.

There is only one manifesto of the Radical left. HYPOCRISY. And its deafening.

And who condemned the hypocrites to the max?

Someone who was later put to death by despicable treatment by those same hypocrites.

that is the propaganda,

but not true,
it is deeply libtard and has no hopes of ever being accurate

which is ironic as hell, as many libtard institutions have banned the use of wiki due to its discretions regarding truth or facts

I've never been on Twitter. But I could see the writing on the wall, so back in Sept. I opened accounts in Parler, Gab and MeWe. Fakebook got deactivated but I did hang on to Messenger. Its a different app. So after a few months now I've pretty much settled on MeWe. Parler which is like Twitter is shut down for now. Gab is overwhelmed and super slow. MeWe is chugging along really well. Pics are a little slow to load. Theyve had a HUGE influx of newbies. There is no advertising on MeWe except for them. They are totally member supported. I like it a lot here too.

If it wasn't for Trump Twitter would be languishing pre election

Just as Jelly Bellies became a hit after Reagan mentioned them... unlike Pork Cracklins when GHWB mentioned them.

One of the companies I was involved in the dotcom boom went public in '98 or 99 with 6 employees, having been in business for 6months or so and had only a few thousands of dollars of income. We IPO'd for over 20million. this insanity is nothing new, how long it can continue on is another matter.

if you don’t go looking for it you won’t. Twitter has/had a huge group of anti Jew posters. In fact a few months ago #jewishprivlege trended for weeks much to the outrage of ever choen, man and berg on the platform. Jewish defense groups demanded that jack do something about it and he/ they refused for weeks. Then all the sudden things changed.

Facetwitube are overplaying their hands. Just a matter of time.

That’s why I’ve never purchased any FB stock.
Agreed.....it will come back to bite them all just like FOX..... Fox in panic mode.... https://www.newsmax.com/us/fox-news-demotes-maccallum/2021/01/11/id/1005121/

But most of us have to admit,.....We've been using FB to stay in touch family and friends. But to many of them have no desire or are just ignorant of what really is happening in our world. Sad to say but its the truth.

Normally I would say that Scorpio is right. The stock market has not telegraphed anything happening. But this is a very strange year and time. Remember that most of these corrupt people are likely to have been the ones letting their friends know and not fear reprise.

But either way this Trump presidency has been a masterful work of theater. I STILL don't fully know if he's a good guy or a bad guy... How is that possible after 4 years? They have held their cards EXTREMELY close to the vest, so if they did bring the hammer I would not expect the market to get any more wind than we have. It would be chaos afterwards.

Not to be a wet blanket, but this was a decision based on cost. To host on premise or in a DC of their own would cost an absolute metric fuckton of everything. So using AWS for 10 years is still far cheaper than the capex they would have needed to throw around.

However morality was never factored into the equations...

caught a minute of the ceo, he said:

amazon killed him off

after that he had another deal worked out and it got killed at the last minute

and a series of similar issues after that

he seemed resolute to get back on the air

he also mentioned having to build the whole thing from scratch -- meaning the amazon setup is more of a plug and play offering, much simpler than what he's facing now
