1. Hey Guest !

    Welcome to the new Higherside Forums. To start participating, you'll need a password for the system. You can get one established by clicking the "forgot password" link, and a URL to create one will be sent to your THC+ email. Your username should be the same, but these are now two independent systems. As a result, changes to your THC+ username/password will not be reflected in your THC Forum username and vise versa. Also, as a bonus, your ability to participate in the forums will continue beyond the life of your THC+ membership.

    Enjoy the upgrade! Users can now make a full profile, start conversations (private messages) between each other, give and track likes, utilize trophies, conduct polls, write public statuses, comment on statuses of others, subscribe to forums, receive alerts, see latest activity, share media, and much more!

    I almost spit out my rye when I saw the higherside chats on youtube's latest 'ideological purge' list. The episodes that I've heard have always been respectful and even somewhat skeptical, in addition to hugely entertaining, ie not at all the kind of content that they are claiming to target with this latest metaphorical book burning. But, if this is really where we are now, I guess I'll have to support the content that I like with actual money instead of just views or clicks or whatever wooden nickels prop up the ad network hiveminds these days.

    I didn't even know there were videos prior to now, I had just been listening to the podcast in audio form, so this is actually a double streisand effect.

    Keep up the good work.

    Right on man. The Filternet is here. They're not banning hate speech, they're banning speech they hate.

    Welcome to the Dissenter's Club.
