About PummelBlitz

PummelBlitz is a new media content aggregation and curation website. We use curators, both real people and bots, to cull the internet for interesting links. Those links can then be voted and commented on by other PummelBlitz users. PummelBlitz aims to keep as much content submitted by users as unchanged as possible, but organized into the best ways you want to consume them.

PummelBlitz is built with 3 principals in mind:

  • Positive opinions and thoughts are worth more than negative ones.
  • Free speech is very important, but it means different things to different peole.
  • Being offended is a choice -- try to choose not to be.

That's it.

Content on PummelBlitz.com is divided into 4 different comfort levels of speech: safe space, common courtesy, adult and extreme. You can read more about the different levels by clicking here. Place yourself in the content level you feel comfortable with.

FAQ

What is PummelBlitz?

PummelBlitz is a new media content aggregation and curation website. We use curators, both real people and bots, to cull the internet for interesting links. Those links can then be voted and commented on by other PummelBlitz users.

Why "PummelBlitz"? What does "PummelBlitz" mean?

In the age of the Internet, we are constantly pummeled with a blitz of information. (... actually it was just a spare domain I had bought many years ago based off a college in-joke.)

What is a Saga? Why "Sagas"?

The Internet is going to be our history book. Collections of stories become sagas over time. Sagas on PummelBlitz.com are just collections of links that share a theme.

What does "speech content level" mean?

All content submitted to PummelBlitz is divided into 4 categories based on the type of content they link to. "Speech content level" is the term PummelBlitz uses to define these categories. They are: safe space, common courtesy, adult, and extreme. When you sign up you choose the maximum content level you wish to see, and PummelBlitz will filter content to that level for you.

Why do you allow {content-I-disagree-with} on this site?

PummelBlitz.com allows all non-illegal content. With so many billion humans on the planet inevitable that there will be an incredibly wide range of value systems and personal beliefs, many will be very distasteful or offensive to one another. There is no way that simply removing or disallowing content will change these deep rooted values and beliefs in others, so in a global community such as the internet we must choose to ignore and/or avoid content and people that offend us. PummelBlitz can help do this by changing your speech content level setting, and by blocking users you don't want to see.

Why do you allow hate speech on this site?

We do not. All illegal content will be removed. That said please keep in mind, you may hate something but that doesn't make it hate speech.

Why isn't the source code for PummelBlitz open source?

It should be and very well could be in the future.

You'll never be bigger than Digg, why are you doing this?

Right now it's a hobby I enjoy spending my spare time on.

I saw some content that is wildly offensive, why won't you remove it?

Admins of each Saga are responsible for policing content.

I have a great idea for a feature you should build.

There are so many planned features coming! There will be a Saga that PummelBlitz.com runs where new features are discussed in the near future.

Why did my Saga get changed to "extreme"? I don't think it is!

This is the tricky part of "offensive content". What offends you may not offend someone else at all. PummelBlitz will not change a Sagas speech content level unless absolutely required.

Why don't you support comment replies?

Comments replies coming very soon.
