Major recent study supporting the Minds content moderation hypothesis and free speech strategy. Mainstream networks are fueling the divide. They know this research exists and are negligent. Let's prove to the world that our model generates more civil discourse. "When toxic online communities on mainstream platforms face moderation measures, such as bans, they may migrate to other platforms with laxer policies or set up their own dedicated website. Previous work suggests that, within mainstream platforms, community-level moderation is effective in mitigating the harm caused by the moderated communities. It is, however, unclear whether these results also hold when considering the broader Web ecosystem. Do toxic communities continue to grow in terms of user base and activity on their new platforms? Do their members become more toxic and ideologically radicalized? In this paper, we report the results of a large-scale observational study of how problematic online communities progress following community-level moderation measures." https://arxiv.org/pdf/2010.10397.pdf
