If you've not had the chance, take a gander over at our wiki as it will address in more detail some of what this post will cover.
First off, welcome to [RAMBLE]. This place is a bit different than some other "similar" sites, but that's by design.
For starters, this site is intended and optimized to be accessible via various "alternative internets" or anonymity networks. That's one of the reasons why it's pretty simple in design. Because a user's web traffic is often encrypted and/or routed randomly through a number of various servers before it reaches them, it can cause quite the noticeable decrease in their network speeds. With no fancy smancy 3rd party elements slowing things down or tracking elements like most websites, you'll find that [RAMBLE] is ideal for use on the various networks we're on! Seriously, go check out /w/networks to learn more, or join a forum specific to those network(s) if you're a newb looking to get introduced to the world of digital privacy.
Oh yeah, speaking of privacy: No email required upon sign up, not that we want to email you anyway. Just plop in the username of your choice and password and boom, you're ready to go!
Did I mention that we love freedom of speech and hate censorship? It's one thing to respect and value member's privacy, both by not collecting information about them and
allowing encouraging use of alternative networks to access this website, but we also want to hear what you have to say and don't think there is a such thing as a 'wrong opinion'. While we do have a few basic rules (see /w/rules ) due to legal reasons, we're happy to see where things go naturally. Basically, we don't want to get featured on CNN because someone here does something dumb and want you to treat anyone offering or requesting anything illegal as a potential cop. Chances are, they are.
Simply put, we want to make the internet better by making it's users more private, secure and anonymous.
