Imzy was started by the santa guy (kickme444) that started reddit gifts that reddit bought out then fired him from.

He is a cool guy, with a good heart and there is nothing particularly wrong with trying to build a safe space from the start. If that's what you want that's the way to do it.

What he fails to realize is that most of the people calling for a safe space don't really want a safe space, they don't want their political opponents to have a platform at all.

So the idea of a platform specifically built to be a safe space has no appeal to those people. They only want safe spaces as a way to restrain the speech of others in an absolute sense, not to actually shield themselves from harmful opinions.

This is the most articulate thing I've read in a while. This comment should be the article. Good work.

@go1dfish summed this up the way I would if I wasn't dumb. That site was destined to fail. The kind of people it attracts don't want a safe space for them to speak they want a space where they get to prevent everyone else from speaking.

Well maybe Imzy could be rescued if its community donated part of their paychecks to help turn things ar... hahahahaha. Shit, almost kept a straight face.

I'd also think they want everything else to be a safe space. They don't want to go somewhere else for the safe space, they want to make everything one.

Don't forget telling the "wrong-thinkers" that what they say is wrong without having to debate their beliefs or listen to replies.
