Let’s see, in terms of ML spaces, we have:

-Lemmygrad

-The subreddits on Reddit

-bunkerchan

-Quora (for certain places)

-Discord

-Twitter

-Facebook

-Certain YouTube channels

Anything else I’m missing? I’m thinking of making another community for now in preparation for when there’s a crackdown on one of these communities, whether it’s the BeardTube community, the comrades on Twitter, or Reddit.

Thoughts?

I think this is enough tbh, the only other possibility I’d like to see is another communism subreddit (/r/communism has been on a tankie banning spree lately, the mod team is dominated by a few MLMs). /r/informedtankie already serves as a good 101 sub probably, and has a large user base. Lemmygrad (maybe bunkerchan too?) are the only ones not hosted by big tech, but we don’t need to split energy in having too many alternatives.

Yeah. /u/PigInABlanketFort bans anyone who disagrees with MLM, especially anyone who defends China. bayarea415, captcalhoun, myself, and a few others are banned for stanning china.

I got banned once and called sinophobic for saying I didn’t want China and the US to nuke each other. Funny how the more things change, the more they stay the same.

Sry, to subscribe to a federated community, you have to use the search box on your instance, and type in !informedtankie@lemmygrad.ml, then click into and click subscribe.

It seemed to find it fine: https://lemmy.ml/community/18050

What could probably be interesting is a distributed instance of lemmygrad. I say lemmygrad because I don’t want to join yet another website lol.

But you know, anyone (or not anyone, but select people) could host lemmygrad on their own server and in case one instance goes down you get redirected to another so it never really dies. If all die just grab the last backup you can find and rehost it whenever, even on your own homemade server if you want.

Of course this is easy to say and it’s probably a year of frustrating labour to make it a reality lol.

We make backups every 4 hours, so if anything goes down, much won’t be lost and it’ll be very simple to resurrect. If anyone wants to help do that I could probably share a syncthing folder.

version control would probably be a nightmare tho…

Friendly reminder, bunkerchan is now leftypol.org due to drama between the site owner and the moderators.

Ah

Discussion Community for fellow Marxist-Leninists and other Marxists.

Rules for /c/communism

Rules that visitors must follow to participate. May be used as reasons to report or ban.

  1. No non-marxists

This subreddit is here to facilitate discussion between marxists.

There are other communities aimed at helping along new communists. This community isn’t here to convert naysayers to marxism.

If you are a member of the police, armed forces, or any other part of the repressive state apparatus of capitalist nations, you will be banned.

  1. No oppressive language

Do not attempt to justify your use of oppressive language.

Doing this will almost assuredly result in a ban. Accept the criticism in a principled manner, edit your post or comment accordingly, and move on, learning from your mistake.

We believe that speech, like everything else, has a class character, and that some speech can be oppressive. This is why speech that is patriarchal, white supremacist, cissupremacist, homophobic, ableist, or otherwise oppressive is banned.

TERF is not a slur.

  1. No low quality or off-topic posts

Posts that are low-effort or otherwise irrelevant will be removed.

This is not a place to engage in meta-drama or discuss random reactionaries on lemmy or anywhere else.

This includes memes and circlejerking.

This includes most images, such as random books or memorabilia you found.

We ask that amerikan posters refrain from posting about US bourgeois politics. The rest of the world really doesn’t care that much.

  1. No basic questions about marxism

Posts asking entry-level questions will be removed.

Questions like “What is Maoism?” or “Why do Stalinists believe what they do?” will be removed, as they are not the focus on this forum.

  1. No sectarianism

Marxists of all tendencies are welcome here.

Refrain from sectarianism, defined here as unprincipled criticism. Posts trash-talking a certain tendency or marxist figure will be removed. Circlejerking, throwing insults around, and other pettiness is unacceptable.

If criticisms must be made, make them in a principled manner, applying Marxist analysis.

The goal of this subreddit is the accretion of theory and knowledge and the promotion of quality discussion and criticism.
