Skip to comments.Parler Is a Trap. Stay away!

He tells how you need to give them a selfie and a drivers license scan in order to direct message.
They can delete anything anytime they want even without reason.
Account deletion by email only. And forced arbitration
Terms of service can be changed any time without notification to users.
If one of your posts leads to legal action against them then you agree to pay all legal fees.
They may have the right to use the information in the contact lists of your devices.
Then we have the obvious:
"Are millions of Conservatives being led into a new Conservative ghetto from which they will become completely invisible to the outside world?"
"It's brilliant if this was an actual strategy. Get the Conservatives to SILENCE themselves outside a bubble to promote 'free speech'."
"We retreat in the culture war into a silo where we all talk to people who already agree with us."
"Any Conservatives who retreated behind the Parler login wall and abandoned their accounts on this platform is now invisible for the upcoming election."
Was this written by Twitter’s marketing department?
Simple SOLUTION: Still maintain presence on Twitter. Ive been noticing an anti-Parler JIHAD going on.
It is indeed better for us to remain present on Twitter and Facebook in order to push back against the hordes.
That said, Microsoft and other companies routinely change their TOS without notice to the users. I think that’s scummy but that’s normal operating procedure. That said I haven’t clicked the link yet since my normal practice on FR is just to read the headlines and then get upset or joyful depending on that alone.
Any thoughts about USA.Life Social Network as an alternative?
I was just about to getting active on parler and now I think I will wait and see what happens. I doubt that this really is some lib tactic to damage us, but I wouldn’t put it pas them.
Probably few are abandoning the bloated forums until they are personally banned outright. I'm reminded of some great advice given immediately after the 1994 election:
"Abandon all illusions of media sympathy," and "find, forge and maintain your own lines of communication."
I got to the point in the T&C section where they tell you about their pixel tags.
I have given up on Parler. It’s a very cumbersome interface. It blocks password saving by FireFox so that I have to generate a reset password every time. Not only is there a capture to authenticate they insist on sending a # by SMS, every time.
I don’t use a SMS capable phone so I need to send to a friend & have them call me.
Once I get in, even though I am following 20+ people, all I see is the last 20 things Loomer posted. I followed people on Parlor that are prolific on twitter like Bongino and nothing comes up in the feed. I’d have to look up the people I follow, 1 x 1.
DOJ should just lower the boom on twitter and take away their immunity if the put a hand on the scale. If not Parlor is not a decent alternative.
Waste of time.
Conservatives need to stop retreating, we are running out of places to retreat to.
Dan Bongino has taken a monetary part in PARLER. You don’t get more intelligent conservatism than Dan Bongino. The control beasts running Twitter and Facebook are panicking that their mission agenda to obfuscate Truth and promote demon rat deceit will fail if conservatives leave.
Started reading the user agreement on Parler and decided against joining. Still on FB. In any case no one should be deluded into thinking anonymity and speech without consequence are ideals that can be objectively attained. Speak the truth wherever you are and whoever you are. There will always be people who cannot handle it.
Other then FreeRepublic I do not feel compelled to share my wisdom with the world. That is what my two dachshunds are for and even they usually ignore me.
If Parler proves to be useful then it will be bought up by FB or Google or even MSFT and strangled.
Reeks of BS, source is Twitter, what a weird coincidence.
Do they really have you scan your license.
I have almost signed up but, I stopped at giving my name and phone number. Wont do it.
Here I am pretty well behaved but , I let it all rip on youtube.
I am trying to get banned commenting on youtube.
I agree. I am reposting videos on my liberal FB groups. Of course they squeal and attack me but they finally get to see something that fake news won’t show them. I am also in a flag waving group that meets every week on a busy intersection waving Trump and American flags. Every week more and more people are coming out to join us. Just this Friday a couple in their mid 80s from my church showed up and also a gay conservative couple and a young black star athlete from our local High school. It is like tea party time again!
Twitter did not write any of the content. Other users did, and they posted it on twitter. So your post is disingenuous.
Brian Cates is a loon
