Trump's Social Media Platform Is Hosting Child Porn

Stanford's Internet Observatory reported last week that Trump's social media platform Gettr is host to child pornography. The service "does not implement industry standard" moderation tools, which filter out child pornography.

A pro-Trump social media service has a major problem, according to a new report: It's not filtering out known images of child pornography.

Gettr, which was started by former Trump aide and spokesperson Jason Miller, has "very few — if any — mechanisms for detecting spam, violent content, pornography, and child exploitation imagery," a new study by the Stanford Internet Observatory said.

The study found 16 examples of images on Gettr that were flagged by PhotoDNA, a photo-moderation database, as "child exploitation imagery."

1. When the boss is a complete friggin idiot, this is the kind of thing that happens

That said, tools like 'PhotoDNA' are not necessarily that reliable ... hence why you either have a moderation system made up of members like we have here, or you PAY people to do it.

This is like Web Forum 101.

13. It's got a history. (Welp does, anyway. "Whelp" is an actual noun, means puppy)

welp
/welp/
exclamation - INFORMAL - US
nonstandard spelling of well, representing a pronunciation (typically used to convey resignation or disappointment).
"welp, spring break is pretty much over"


"...academic studies acknowledged the word as early as 1946. Dwight Bolinger addresses it that year in an essay for American Speech entitled “Thoughts on ‘Yep’ and ‘Nope.’”

"If the speaker is American, and will observe himself when he utters well as a sign of dismissal of some discussion or activity (as in ‘Well’—pause—‘what do we do next?’), he will often discover that he has used welp, with unfinished p. Like other actions, this gesture of finality may become a mannerism."

4. My big fear

is that the delusional MAGA sees child porn as acceptable. After all, if it is on their messiah's social media platform it must me okay.

14. How many Republicans have been credibly associated with such things?

It's sorta part of their brand at this point, as is proving they can "get away with" nearly any social or legal rule. Doing so is a flex of power, a way of saying, "we're so strong we don't have to follow the same restrictions as others. Join us and you might be able to do this, too".

6. With Jason Miller behind GETTR,

child pornography seems not to be a bug, but rather a feature -- perhaps to please his boss?

17. This is so Republican

Accuse others of crap that you are doing yourself. There is no hope of salvation for Republicans. Many people say they are all going to Hell. And you know Republicans are more than ready to trust what "many people" say, since they swallowed so much of that from the darkside casino hustler they worship.
