Extremely disappointed in Omar Roth, the creator of Invidious.
Taking a neutral stance against hate speech is choosing a side. What a cop out.
I dig Invidious. I think it's a great solution for people that want to interact with YouTube and not get bombarded with non-sense.
However in this day and age, you have to make a stand against hate speech. You can't just hope it goes away or it deals with itself, b/cit won't. We see what happens when we give it space.
And let's be real. The only time the free speech argument is deployed is when it is in defense of hateful and violent bigots.
This is how hate spreads. When people do nothing.
@Are0h Ayup. It's “funny” how bigots will tell you with a straight face that their right to freeze peach extends to building an integration into some app so they can vomit their hateful shit to its user.
Regarding the neutrality of software, we probably ought to drop that pretense too: when creating software, we chose what it does, and for whom; those are ethical and political choices, whether or not it's acknowledged.
tried writing something about how software by itself isn't enough either, but isn't awake/alive enough for that right now.
