What say you? Is Parler playing both sides of the fence?  At first glance you read this and say that Parler has given in to the MSM. Posts that are labeled “hate” by Parler’s new artificial intelligence moderation system won’t be visible on iPhones or iPads.

There’s a different standard for people who look at Parler on other smartphones or on the Web: They will be able to see posts marked as “hate,” which includes racial slurs, by clicking through to see them.

In a nutshell Parler is being more strict with those who use Apple products. At first that bothered me. But the more that I look at this, I see why they’re playing the game. Bring in everyone and let the audience decide for themselves if this is what they want.

Back with my 8,000 Parler friends.  After Weeks Of Being Offline, Parler Finds A New Web Host.Social media service Parler on Monday said it is officially relaunching its platform, more than a month after it was suspended from Amazon’s web hosting services over violent posts regarding the deadly Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol. This from NPR.

SkySilk, a Web infrastructure company based outside of Los Angeles, is now hosting Parler, SkySilk’s chief executive, Kevin Matossian, confirmed to NPR in an interview.

“SkySilk is well aware that Parler has received an aggressive response from those who believe their platform has been used as a safe haven for some bad actors,” Matossian said in a statement. “Let me be clear, Skysilk does not advocate nor condone hate, rather, it advocates the right to private judgment and rejects the role of being the judge, jury, and executioner.”

He said while the company many disagree with some of Parler’s content, he believes the company is taking “necessary steps” to monitor its platform.

“Once again, this is not a matter of SkySilk endorsing the message, but rather, the right of the messenger to deliver it. SkySilk will support Parler in their efforts to be a nonpartisan Public Square as we are convinced this is the only appropriate course of action,” he said in a statement.

Parler said in its statement on Monday it would bring back online its current users in the first week and would be open to new users the next week. I’ve posted about a dozen of my articles and the response has been awesome.




Trump to go it alone? Start his own social media? That would be something.

Trump to go it alone? Start his own social media? That would be something. The President said he was considering building his own social media platform. We have this from PC Magazine.

Which “other sites” the outgoing President might be planning to partner with wasn’t mentioned in his statement. But the Trump-friendly social media app Parler is already facing trouble. On the same day, Google said it pulled Parler from the Google Play Store over concerns its pro-Trump users have been making calls for violence. “In light of this ongoing and urgent public safety threat, we are suspending the app’s listings from the Play Store until it addresses these issues,” the company said in a statement.

In addition, Apple is reportedly threatening to pull Parler from the iOS App Store unless the app enforces stronger content moderation policies. Parler did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but its CEO has been arguing against Apple’s demands.
