I agree but there is a fine line between censorship and snuffing out the lowlifes that live to ruin other peoples day. Moderation is a better term than censorship in these circumstances.
Such problem exists in all social networks, at places where going discourses about politics, religion, or history there always will be individuals who will try to hook up and provoke another by imposing their version of the truth.

yep happens everywhere. it's up to the moderation team to discuss and implement a cohesive policy.
Sure, there should be a kind of censorship in this network. However, the devs have to be cautious in terms of not being out of line in this stuff.
Sphere is certainly the kind of project that requires continuous work, in all stages of Ico and after it, Team seems to me aware of realizing a platform that covers the failures of today's networks, surely it is necessary to include ways to inhibit harmful behavior to other

Of course, censorship will have to be dealt with even in such a decentralized social network as the Sphere. Perhaps they could impose it on users. For example, a kind of dislike from the information, when a certain limit is reached, this information marked with dislike should be checked for compliance with the rules. Although this scheme also has drawbacks.
I also think that moderation is better than cersorship. I think censorship should only be in the most extreme cases.

Of course, but as for me, moderation is just a particular case of censorship in this case. Moreover, the latter can be done automatically, and for moderation we need people who will perform it.

The plain truth is that moderation is a form of censorship. ie. you are still censoring what you deem inappropriate. There are certain things that should be censored (eg. Sexually explicit things, excessive gore), but what should never be censored is ideas. Unfortunately, the latter has been censored by the ideologically left by labelling it has hatespeech.

Social networks are a inseparable part of our lives, a good project with a great idea who knows maybe it will replace the social networks that we now use.

Indeed, I also think that is a good idea to launch a decentralizated social network platform. That increases the security of the users data.

The current Bonus is 45% now, till the end of the next week.

I felt they're giving too much bonus as it'll be harmful for the short term investors, we have seen lots of projects got cracked up because of this. I just hope they have some good back up for this.

On the other hand they need to secure funds to run the project, but that could also scare away investors in the final stages. Off course if the project is solid and will be successful this will not matter

A good strategy, especially if you want to be a holder of the token, is to accumulate during the initial sell-off after listing on an exchange.

True in most cases, but there's not always a sell off (think ICON), and than you can miss the boat. So I sometimes like to middle/DCA

Well, usually with this kind of bonus, there is a locking period so the prices are not dumped, I will enter an ICO that gives me a lot f bonus, and also to lock it, i don't mind waiting, but it appears that is not the case here, so lets hope the project is not dumped much, the price will rise eventually, but after how  much time?

Once people will see the benefit of this over Facebook. And more importantly: once there friends and family move to Sphere
They cant see a lot of benefits for now actually, i think its only decentralized so far.
I hope there will be more soon.

That's the problem of blockchain: it's not really tangible and/or sexy. But the benefits are there if you know what it entails, which right now, people don't

Ah, the important issue of censorship in a decentralised environment. Without any rules/culling/censoring, social media can turn ugly very quickly. Will Sphere have staff members that will remove offensive content? One thing is certain - if people see pictures/video posted on Sphere that disgust them, they will not want to use it.

Yes there should be people who would be able to delete etc. The problem is always, something saved on the blockchain will stay on the blockchain, even if it is not visible on the front-end.

Imagine someone uploaded your unwanted pic and it stays there forever. You can report and take down contents in centralized platforms like youtube and facebook. Personal data in blockchain sounds like Skynet to me

But you could also say: something saved in the internet stays in the internet. Nothing new so far besides the fact that i think its more difficult to recover deleted data from the blockchain.

I don't know it can replace but it can get some of their share.

People don't need to quit other social media to use sphere. They can use all and use sphere also.

Now and again there might be times where google/twitter/Facebook might put a small display of ‘resistance’ to government requests, but the truth is that they are almost like an arm of the government - or a part of it (deep state), and they don’t care about people’s privacy.

you never know what's going to happen. but if sphere manages to get popular in the crypto space, that's a lot.

Its still not easy because there are also many social media projects here in crypto.
If they can be as popular as steemit, then that's pretty good.
