Welcome to Minds ,you have the right to remain silent, and that about ends it. It’s time to hate on hate, that's right we are focusing on the bill of rights for Minds.com.


Well before we start this one off we are going to put it into context so first we will define a bill of rights. “A bill of rights, sometimes called a declaration of rights or a charter of rights, is a list of the most important rights to the citizens of a country. The purpose is to protect those rights against infringement from public officials and private citizens. “ Now we will put this in context for a website.

A bill of rights, sometimes called a declaration of rights or a charter of rights, is a list of the most important rights to the users of a WEBSITE. The purpose is to protect those rights against infringement from public and private USERS.

Okay so now that this is in context we will be it in a real world situation as implied in the title we will used when someone gets arrested as context, when you get arrested you are read you rights, these rights are so important that if you are not read them you get released legally. The most known phrase for this is “You have the Right To Remain Silent”. I give this freelance as it’s not required, and you simply don’t have to remain silent, but in most cases you probably want to remain silent when arrested. This is very important as you don’t want to incriminate yourself , in general I think you have the right to remain silent, but I guess I’m just not the type.

Now your wondering what in the world are you talking about right? (Get it) Well the point here is that when someone for example A country like the United States, or your local police department has a bill of rights that the entity commends to they must follow it, it is a promissory for there environment in this case a local environment like a website, Minds.

Minds has a Bill of Rights that has been documented and is located at https://www.minds.com/p/billofrights at the time of this blog, and I simply do not agree they are following this bill of rights that they have as an entity given there users or environment. I have highlighted the key points below, and encourage you to complain or invoke your right to remain silent as users make this network as it should be, and as anywhere else why are we, or why should we, be encouraged or want to use a network that claims to have built itself on user trust and engagement when in fact they do not follow there own bill of rights?

2. Content must NOT be required to be removed without an order by a judicial authority.

Minds.Inc removes content all the time from it’s group feeds, comments, or boost feed.

3. Requests for restrictions of content must be clear, be unambiguous, and follow due process.

Please show me where remember it needs to be clear.

4. Laws and content restriction orders and practices must comply with the tests of necessity and proportionality.

I would like one 3rd party test for anything.

5. Laws and content restriction policies and practices must respect due process.

I would like to know the due process for removing comments in the help desk that is a public location, the feed a public location and boost a public feature.

6. Transparency and accountability must be built into laws and content restriction policies and practices.

Minds doesn’t even have a user based changelog for transparency you really think they have this?

Before they spin you remember they are already adopted and have been for a while now.



And before you ask what I have done about it I will tell you. First I emailed Minds about these issues, and still have not to this day gotten a response, I then logged the user bill of rights to be merged to the official Gitlab for Minds.Inc that has not had a response to this day, then I asked a lawyer for his legal opinion, and am now writing this blog. Yes I could do more but why when I have the right to remain silent ?


That's the end of my little rant, thanks for reading if you did please feel free to comment your view on the topic :)
