Any recommended social media that has as much less censorship as possible and allows NSFW posts? Minds is all right and I keep using it but it's annoying that the site's design is buggy as hell, there are so many spam bots and the moderators don't do their job when they have to like with stalkers.

Social media is cancer.

Maybe look into the Fediverse if you can't live without it. I think Poast is the go to shitposting node. I've never used it, so I don't really know what it's like.

Someone is making a site like you want every 3-4 months but falls flat on their nose because they either can not, or are too gullible and naive, prevent literal nazis and extreme rightwingers from claiming the site and killing it.

>Ruqqus
>voat
>.win communities

Etc etc, many such cases. Most people with a clue in programming those sort of websites also always think they are fit to content it or moderate it too. Which they are not.

Also they have no clue of PR or Marketing so they end up with the most insane downfall stories possible.

You can't have both moderation and absence of censorship (including towards porn/gore): either the site's owner doesn't want to enforce any common sense or he wants his site to be somewhat profitable, hence the removal of hard-to-monetise things

Consider what you actually *want* from social media before seeking social media. Personally I only use: Discord for gaming and hanging out online with IRL friends, YouTube(via RSS feeds) for high value content, and forums/imageboards for hobbies and decent discussions.

I know you said you want no censorship and NSFW posts allowed, but both lead to poor quality discussions in my experience

I didn't said "no censorship". I said "as much less censorship as possible".

"Going outside" is the best social media. I've heard it's pretty buggy though.
Try saying "kill commies" outside. Unless you live in Poland where communism is banned.

You know, Outside has in its ToS that you're held responsible for your speech and you actions

Fediverse is not run by anyone, that's kind of the point. If you find a node run by SJWs, don't use it and look for a node not run by SJWs. For example, I think it's pretty safe to say the node set up by Metokur fans is not run by leftist SJWs. Gab is a federiated service, I think it's safe to say it is not left-wing.
Pretty sure gab is only one way and when they did try to fully federated they got btfo'd right off. now they just dump their posts into the ether but dont receive any. Also fuck gab and fuck Torba what a retard.

I don't use any of these sites. My point is just that the Fediverse is decentralized with self hosted nodes, not this monolithic thing run by one group of people.

It'd be like if I said, "Hey why don't you try this IRC server?" And the reply was "IRC is run by trannies." What does that even mean? Anyone can set up an IRC server. If I set up an IRC server in my basement it's run by me. How is it run by trannies?

I get what you are coming from but fediverse is mostly used by SJW types. I think the issue comes from it attracting more tech-literate people and the overrepresentation of sjw's in tech. Trannies are soo common in tech literature spheres that "programmer socks" are colored like transgender flag. You could use based fediverse but they are just like tranny servers but sometimes people post nazi memes.

I've listed three nodes that are most definately not SJW. If you have a platform to post on, I'm not sure it matters if most nodes are run by SJWs or not. It's open source, if you take it an use it it's not like your funneling money to people you disagree with politically. The SJW nodes are not going to federate with any of the ones I posted. You can go join a shit-poster node or even host your own and federate with other shit posters.

I go back to the IRC example. If my IRC server is a free speech zone and every other IRC server is run by people who clamp down on free speech, I'm not sure why that is relevant to my specific IRC server. You can say what you want on my server and interact with like minded individuals regardless of what's happening on the other servers.

*Edit* Another example, this site uses XenForo forums software. If another separately owned and hosted site also uses XenForo and is filled with SJW furries who jam their thumbs up each other's asses, I don't see how it's particularly relevant to Agora Road. "Hey, you should check out this forum!" "Naw, I saw a forum this one time full of SJW furries who jam their thumbs up each other's asses."

I just find the argument that I will not use a federated service because there are a bunch of other federated services run by SJWs a little strange.

During my joyrney on the Yesterweb, I noted some obscure sites that could be described as social media. They are as follow:

https://www.dreamwidth.org/ (has some NSFW stuff, also claim to be about freedom)

Aside maybe from Dreamwidth, I don't think I know anything that fit what you seek.

I have heard some people singing praise about XMPP. You might want to check it out. From what I understand, it's a decentralized self-hostable thing. Haven't had time try it myself yet.

Angel town seems cozy, like agora road without schizo ramblings, sounds kinda comfy, perhaps i create an acount there one day.
