Dissenter, a comment section for the entire internet

Recent trend is to shut down comment sections on webpages to avoid people actually discussing what they really think about the news article or the content so the authors can further push certain agendas or narratives without any resistance from people who aren’t just sheep, but they actually think about things or discuss it with others. Because articles and news without comment sections are pretty much propaganda material.

As a response to that, Gab, the free speech social network recently launched service called Dissenter. Essentially, Dissenter is a commenting system, almost like Disqus, but doesn’t require integration into webpage itself. You can download extension for it for all major browsers (links will be down below) and read what others are saying about certain content under an URL. If you want to comment, you have to create Gab account, but reading is fully open as is. Good thing about it is that you can browse the webpages as before and when opening Dissenter, you get a popup on top, so you can read webpage and the comments at the same time without leaving one or the other.

In a nutshell, we already had something similar, it was called “WOT” or “Web Of Trust”, until it was discovered they were selling user data to 3rd parties without user consent. It’s when I and many others ditched it. Which is a shame because the design and usability of the service was pretty good and super useful.

If webpages have comment sections, but they are censored or disabled, you can still comment on it and anyone using Dissenter, can see them under same URL. Even if webpages don’t have comment sections at all by default, you can still comment and others can still read that.

Dissent always comments under the specific URL you’re currently located, so if you want to comment on their webpage in general, you need to visit their root webpage or home page. This can be seen in Dissenter popup, so make sure you are on correct address depending on what you want to comment on, specific article or subpage or home page itself.

Idiots are already making wild claims how Dissenter is a neonazi propaganda tool, that needs to be banned and shutdown from everywhere (the same they’ve been doing with Gab platform itself), but I see a lot of value in it. Just like WOT, this can be used for anything, be it just a comment on a CNN news article without comment section, Youtube video that has comments disabled or a rating of an online store that you had negative (or positive) experience with, but there is very hard to warn others if there are no comments on the webpage itself. With Dissent, you can do that too. And no one can stop you from commenting, because it’s outside of webpage’s control. An ultimate free speech tool, as you can talk about anything, anywhere. Sure trolls and spammers will eventually start abusing it, but reading different opinions and having doubt about things is what makes you a more rational person. You don’t just read things and blindly believe them to be the truth, you read comments and research things before forming an opinion. And that’s the point of Dissent. Grab it and check out what people really think about things online.

Gab is back online!

After getting kicked offline by Joyent because Gab happened to have that shooter asshole among its users (gee, why no one booted Twitter and Facebook for having same retard among their users as well?) is now back online. It still has some hiccups, but it’s working. Will probably take a bit for it to become fully operational.

All this dicking around and pissing on Gab is clearly politically motivated because they did nothing wrong and nothing different than how Twitter or Facebook operate. And yet Gab is getting fucked in the ass on all possible ends, but Twitter and Facebook, nothing at all. Facebook even ran fucking white supremacist ads in the meanwhile which means they actually took money from someone and ran with it and they are just “sorry” now. Fuck off.

I hope this desperate censoring of Gab bullshit will ends soon. And kudos to Andrew Torbo for not giving up.

Express yourself freely on Gab.com, a true free speech social network

Why Gab?

Tired of being punished for every word you say because some dumb snowflake gets offended by it? Tired of being endlessly suspended because some fucker doesn’t understand the concept of irony or sarcasm? Tired of “people of color”, “muslims” and “women” being this protected class of whom none shall speak ill? You just want to express yourself without some asshole constantly barking at you for being “too left” or “too right” of politics or if you just plain don’t give a fuck about it?

Well, then you might want to join GAB.

Gab is a social network which has a similar feel to Twitter, but without any of the censoring bullshit and hard left authoritarian lunacies (and without right ones as well). No one there will coddle your feels. In fact no one gives a shit about your feels. They give you the tools to build up your echo chamber by muting words and users or block them entirely if you want, but no one will run network wide “algorithms” to shadowban or censor others on behalf of your sorry ass fragile existence. I don’t even understand why Twitter has such tools when everyone apparently expects them to censor shit automatically and globally. It always pissed me off. Stop wrapping me in cotton wool, hit me with unrefined opinions of others. I can handle them. Instead dumb Twitter kept warning me about fucking “sensitive” content and if I really want to see it despite having all that shit disabled in the settings.

Banned from all app stores for crimes of free speech

The crazy left is so terrified of this notion that no one is controlling the speech on a platform that they had to go and literally ban Gab from both, GooglePlay and Apple App Store with an excuse of “hate speech promotion”. It’s so obvious what they did even Ray Charles can see it. And he’s blind and dead…

Install Gab from their official webpage (only download from there)

Android 8.x should ask you to allow installation of APK from unknown source when you try opening it, add the app performing the install to the exclusion (usually the browser itself or the File Manager of some sort) and install the Gab. No version available yet for Apple devices at this moment.

Spreading FUD about Gab to scare people from using it…

There will also be people who will try to convince you that Gab is a home of white nationalists and literal nazis. Well, that’s “fake news” as people like to put it these days. Yeah, at the moment, there are a lot of conservatives and people with right sided politics on Gab, because they’ve been suspended, banned and kicked from pretty much all major social platforms which are all owned and controlled by crazy hardcore leftists who are slowly but efficiently starting to eat each other already. But that doesn’t mean people with different opinions and politics aren’t welcome on Gab. Everyone’s welcome on Gab.

I’m not what you think I am for promoting Gab…

Reading this post you might think, damn, this Trump loving white dude must be a right winger for sure. And you’d be wrong. I’m slightly left leaning libertarian. Just few taps away from center. The dirty centrist basically. When you’re pissing everyone off, you’re doing it just right. Remember that.

I’ve dumped Twitter after getting suspended twice for stupid bullshit (of which some you could read here on my blog as well) and I was so fed up and pissed, I just deleted it all. And now I’m exclusively on Gab. I regret nothing, even though it’s still a bit quiet for now.

So, come on over to Gab and express yourself freely without having to worry some overlord on top will get butthurt and punish you over your opinions or words. It just feels so liberating in this crazy world obsessed with political correctness and censorship…
