Says something about the level of flitering and moderating at GETTR.
Of course a good filterating and good moderation cost money, and I think Trump want to spend as little as possible on it.

If GETTR is supposed to be about free speech they shouldn't need moderators If so, seems like kicking them off would kill their brand, and I think plague311 will be correct and it will collapse.

Oh I forgot, these people are all morons so who knows what they will think.

ETA: I just visited GETTR for two minutes (private window). Top story is about AZ Governor refusing a subpoena from ah who gives a crap. I couldn't stand it long enough to find out. These people will think whatever they are told to think.

Governor refused a subpoena? I know the county Board of Supervisors refused subpoenas for router passwords and other information from the Senate for their "audit".

I don't think Trump actually has any money invested in it.

I am shocked, SHOCKED, to see that there is child porn on Gettr!

A pro-Trump social media service built on ‘freedom of speech’ isn’t moderating some child pornography

Quote:
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."

The PhotoDNA database is considered an industry standard tool for frontline defense against users uploading images of child pornography.

When Stanford's Internet Observatory uploaded benign test images from the PhotoDNA database to Gettr, they weren't flagged before being posted – which likely means the database isn't being used at all on the service. Instead, it appears to be relying solely on user-based moderation, the researchers found.

Saying that the Taliban doesn't have a GETTR account is a bit of a weird flex, though.

Child exploitation images, ISIS snuff videos, and MTG as well.

You could have just said "filth" to cover the lot.

We can assume that everything on Gettr is filth of one kind or another.

Politicians aren't meant to be dignified anymore. Dignified is boring, and a politician's job these days is to be entertaining and attract attention.

I took my late MIL to Walmart once. She was classy with a capital C. She was an ex-model and a 'lady' to her very bone. The woman never left the house without her makeup on and hair coiffed perfectly. It was hysterical watching her as she saw some of the stereotypical Walmart shoppers for the first time. It was like a foreign world to her.

GETTR is only for the right-wing-nutcase and Trump-ass licking type of "free speech". The proper and only acceptable free speech.
