    Google has developed an AI system to monitor and censor comments that it deems are hate speech. But I do not believe this is google trying to rid the world of hate speech I think that instead it is Google trying to rid the world of freedom of speech. There is a news item on breitbart.com that goes into detail about this new AI system, but to cut a long story short… this is a huge threat to freedom of speech and democracy itself. Google and other silicon valley companies already have far too much power in their hands which they often use to steer the general public’s line of thought. This new technology will allow them to mass delete anything that they oppose creating an internet that is steered not by freedom of speech but in accordance of “Googles guidelines”. Google has lots of tentacles in politics and wants people to vote for who they want. For example Eric Schmidt has wor…[Read more]

    Donald trump has declared that the EU is a “wonderful thing” and that he is ““totally in favour of it” in an interview with Reuters, this comes only weeks after an interview with press in January where he praised Britain for leaving the EU condemned the entire EU project by saying “You look at the European Union and it’s Germany. Basically a vehicle for Germany. That’s why I thought the UK was so smart in getting out.”. So why the sudden change of heart?
    It could be because Donald Trump has folded to pressure from within the republican party that has triggered this sudden change of heart from Donald. For example Trumps right hand man Vice president Mike Pence who toured Europe last week has said that he wants to work with the EU to “deepen our political and economic partnership”.

      Donald Trump is either bipolar or Mike pence spoke with the Bilderbergers/establishment in Europe who gave him his orders to get Donald Trump in line or else. Looks as though Britain is going to be totally isolated now because no doubt the EU will tell America to back off from any trade deals with the uk. BUT WHO CARES I NEVER WANTED A TRADE DEAL WITH AMERICA ANYWAY. America can take their big tax avoiding company’s which ruin our small businesses and shove them up their arses!

    Boycott amazon before its too late!
    Whilst so many small business suffer and struggle to pay extortionate rent on their high street shops Amazon gets a tax cut from the government on their huge warehouses. I think this just proves exactly who’s side the Tory government actually is on. This sort of thing makes me so angry because amazon avoids paying millions in tax anyway, money which could be used to help fund our NHS or to provide care for our elderly population. Not only that but Amazons aggressive and anti competitive tactics have killed off many uk retailers…Our Mps simply do not care about the hard working people of this country and are just doing deals with big companies like amazon in the hope of getting well paid jobs when they retire as an MP.

    It has also been revealed this week by the Times of Israel that Amazon is selling anti-Semitic holocaust denial books on its…[Read more]

    Looks as though aliens could be a lot closer than we think. Scientists have found 60 new planets all orbiting a star relatively close to our own solar system (4th closets star system from ours). One of the plants if thought to be a super earth that is in just the position and composed of the right material to be able to potentially support alien life. These new planets found also prove that planets are more abundant in the universe than scientists ever thought.. making the possibility of alien life that bit more possible. What do you guys think? Is e.t living just 4 star systems away?

    I saw (excuse the pun HAHA) this program when it was on tv and some of the things the animals were up to really were really human like it was incredible!

    Yeah something like that 🙂 Utterz is more for posting your own articles, videos and promoting stuff. Whilst Utterli is more of a conventional social network like twitter and facebook where you can quickly post things that are on your mind. Its totally up to you which one you prefer to use.

    In reply to: James posted an update I thought I would just share these buddypress codes for you guys to help you all out if your using buddypress ( to be honest im really posting these codes here so I don\'t forget them myself!) Basically if you want a to display a users cover image then this code echoes out the users url of the cover image if the user has one outside of the buddypress loop <?php $image_url = bp_attachments_get_attachment(\'url\', array( \'item_id\' => bp_displayed_user_id() ) ); ?> so then all you have to do is echo $image_url out into a divs background style like so... <div class =\"profile-box-cover-image\" style=\"background-image: url(<?php $image_url = bp_attachments_get_attachment(\'url\', array( \'item_id\' => bp_displayed_user_id() ) ); echo $image_url; ?> )\"></div> Some more really useful code is this <a href=\"<?php echo bp_loggedin_user_domain(); ?>/profile\"><?php _e(\"profile\")?></a> Basically this code creates a link that you can drop anywhere in your theme that will direct you to certain pages specific to the logged in user.. You can change the ending of the link from /profile to friends, notifications and so on! This link code goes really well with using the buddypress count functions for example adding in a friend or notification counter next to the link to the friend or notifications... to do this use this code: <div class=\"the-friend-link-and-count-title\"> <a href=\"<?php echo bp_loggedin_user_domain(); ?>/notifications\"><?php _e(\"Alerts\")?></a></div> <div class=\"theprofile-count-numbers\"><?php echo bp_notifications_get_unread_notification_count( bp_loggedin_user_id() );?></div> I hope this helps... as there doesn\'t really seem to be any information about doing this anywhere (well for ultra noobs that is like me).. not even on the buddypress forums! View

    Another useful piece of buddypress code would be

    <?php echo bp_core_get_userlink( bp_loggedin_user_id() ); ?>

    which will display not only the currently logged in users name but also will make it a link to the users profile page.

    We would rather not exploit ours users that is why we will never track our users nor do we sell information to third parties or even show any ads at all here on Utterli and we promise that we never will! -That is something facebook cannot say!

  • Marcus posted an update 1 year, 1 month ago

    Here at Utterli we believe strongly in freedom of speech therefore unlike so many other social network and community sites out there we do not censor you for promoting things! Why should people not be allowed to self promote?
    We want to break this weird consensus on the internet that anyone promoting or posting links to a product that is not amazon or a huge brand must be a “spammer”.. we say this is daft and is actually harming small businesses and gives the establishment tighter grip on the internet and what we can and cannot say!
