Yes, even Minds.com needs moderation, but it has due process and a jury system



Minds.com, which intends to remove itself from partisan censorship and become dependable for free speech, still has its own moderation system, but with a jury and appeal due process explained here.
   
There are categories like Not suitable for work, and spam.  These do have a "three strike" system.  (In high school PE softball, we had a one-strike rule.)  There are still some immediate ban categories (mostly illegal content), which should be obvious. This could get difficult in Europe where hate speech is actually illegal.


Minds is based on block chain and crypto currency payments, and uses open source rather than proprietary software.
   
I’ve been a bit distracted by other issues, but I need to get some ether in my wallet (had some trouble getting it to work).
