I would like to believe most of /v/news is satire

It's all biased. No one's in the news business for transparency anymore.

Seems like quantity beats perceived quality here? Read more news from more sources, rather than try and only read 'the good' source.

Unless someone knows of an unblemished news source. I do not.

if @typo cared about this, he would put a sticky at the top of his board today asking for a discussion. v/news has like 5 main posters, 3 of them are PidoRashka openly using robot posting, posting shit like kremlins sputniknews, with all links having a tracking URL for proper management of propaganda effectiveness. its repulsive.

it'll be askvoat all over again. look at your top bar ^^^ way up there.... 5 or 6 of the "main" subs either dont have mods or have inactive mods past the 30 day threshold. literally anybody reading what i am typing can go get their buddies at SRS and "legally" request them at v/subverserequest. literally 5-10 people communicating irl people could ruin this entire website.

https://voat.co/v/sports/new <---- all that reddit spam is copyright violation material that could EASILY cause the hosting company of voat to dump this website. if someone where to report that to the right person.

somebody. do. something.

I would like to ban satire articles from v/news

It should be common sense, no rule needed. Guess I expect too much from this site.

PV would have a hissy fit if it was removed now.

Sigh

On principle, yes. Heavy upvotes and no existing rule. But a rule banning satire sites from being posted to those subs would be a good idea.

this shit is getting silly.

some of the posts in several subverses are akin to 4chan level of nonsense... makes me wonder if real people are outnumbered by trolls here.

/v/news likes untrustworthy news sources. Most of the upvoated stuff is boulevard populism, propaganda or just fake.

Does anyone have an alternative to /v/news?

I'm guessing 3dk will be happy to give you alternatives since he's the one posting the fake articles in the place and then claiming "look at the garbage that v/news upvotes". While it's him doing the shit in the first place. Fucking sock puppet piece of shit. Probably has an email list to upvote it to the front page too.

I browse v/all and upvoted the NSA malware submission for the discussion and because I wanted to post this:

Yeah, unpatchable Privilege Escalation exploits already exist on Intel x86 CPUs that can escalate the attacker from Ring 3 (user land) to even Ring -2 (system management mode, SMM). SMM is much deeper and completely invisible to the kernel's Ring 0, and any SMM rootkit would be completely undetectable by the kernel, as the memory controller denies the kernel access to SMM memory.

Any SMM backdoor put in place by the NSA would have full control over your system, while also being completely undetectable by your operating system or anti-virus.

Demonstration on Linux: Black Hat USA 2015 - The Memory Sinkhole Unleashing An X86 Design Flaw Allowing Universal Privilege

I didn't actually check out the article itself or the verse, as I already know the technology is there. Mods should actively try to flag satire though.

/v/news mods are afraid to delete anything even satire because they don't want to be brigaded by /v/protectvoat like the mods of /v/worldnews were.

1- No one is getting brigaded on v/worldnews. People downvote @eggnogg because he is a fucking cancer. @chupwn and @astromachine remove spam and enforce rules evenly and I don't see anyone complaining about them. Nice try on that.

The v/news mods are sticking to their rules. Which evidently need to be changed. Specific exceptions need to be made for breaking news scenarios and satire sites need to be prohibited. @typo
