So a poster, JIMC5499, in another thread asked about a "modified Hatebase dictionary used by the authors of" a study on GAB. I too was curious about this database and wondered whether it was available online.

It turns out that it is: Hatebase

They say the following about themselves:




Hatebase was built to assist companies, government agencies, NGOs and research organizations moderate online conversations and potentially use hate speech as a predictor for regional violence.



See also: Introducing Hatebase: the world’s largest online database of hate speech

In any event, I thought people would find this interesting.

I'm still playing around with the searches...

Interesting find indeed. I’ll have to wait till I get home play around on this.

OK, so get this, the geeks over at hatebase have determined that saying 'American-born Chinese' or 'Australian-born Chinese' is precisely 24% hate speech.

Thats awesome.

your racist vocabulary

Un-#in-believable.

I bet silly links to this every day now - we're screwed.

I've just looked at your link, and I think they're referring to the initials "ABC".
The full phrase is just explaining the meaning.

And I think the percentage shows how far the term gets along the line between "relatively benign" and "extremely offensive".
I've also just checked "wog", which gets a much higher score.

No wonder they are constantly whining about dog whistles.

Just by loading up the front page alone I see I can't talk about having a twinkie anymore because I'm referring to someone like Elizabeth Warren or an Asian-American who's integrated into American culture instead of cream-filled yellow sponge cake that could survive WWIII.

Imagine if the initials ABC was deemed 24% hate speech - all those little nazis learning the nickname for 'alphabet' in pre-school. No wonder everyone some people don't like is Hitler.

You reckon "soy boi" or "snowflake" would return a hit? "Triggered" shouldn't 'cause that's their own term for "perpetually offended snowflake."

Only on this planet could words be considered a crime and in fact have an entire police department dedicated to word crime

I've invented a useful acronym which I'm hoping to launch into the world at some stage, but I want to get other things out of the way first.

Shocker, conservatives are attacking a database collecting online hate speech. How about focusing on the hate spread online that is radicalizing Americans to not only find safe spaces to spread hate but also radicalize them so much they commit mass shootings and send bombs in the mail?

Is that so hard? You’d think this would be a bi partisan issue but conservatives continue to let us all down.

I typed in 'ATS' - guess what came up?

NATSI - a person from German decent - Nazi

It registers 50% on the hate-speechomometer.

Now folks here can refer to me and others as a 'Natsi' (an ATS Nazi) when logic and lateral thinking evades their ability to back up their dribble.

I'd just like to talk about twinkies again. Tasty ... tasty ... twinkies.

Do you see the problem? That could be called hate speech by this stupid database, and all I want is some cake!

The problem is that everyone thinks that if we just erase enough words, no one can hate. Yet here you manage to do a fine job all on your own without using the words.

People need to understand it's all about intent, and sometimes, it's not even that, but it is in your mind.

I'm sure, Swills, that if you try hard enough, and these days you do, anything and everything is hate no matter what any of the rest of us are talking about ... even my cake. So I'll be sure to enjoy may tasty, tasty hate cake tonight in your honor because it's people like you that cause crap like this database to happen.

Says the hate & hypocrisy party. Rampant and never-ending censorship and the assault on free speech isn't a bi-partisan issue. That's totally in your court.

Remember in school there would always be that one person who would write down peoples names and what they did then give the list up to the teacher? They did this because they wanted the whole class to change and adapt to their own little bubble of conception.

Then constantly play the 'I have no friends' victim card.

fast-forward to 2018 and we now have Hatebase - the one person playing the victim.

Why do you believe your "side" should have the sole authority to define what is considered hate? That is the real question that needs answering here.

So if you go to the advanced search, select a category and then a language, without entering a search term, you get everything with those tags:

Ethnicity: 784 search results
Nationality: 150 search results
Religion: 39 search results
Gender: 13 search results
Sexual Orientation: 12 search results
Disability: 7 search results
Class: 56 search results
Archaic: 41 search results

Seems like a really thin database. In fact, so thin, I'd say it almost seems fraudulent to market this at this stage to any company, government agency, NGO or research organization.

They're actually charging for this nonsense: Pricing.

I'm not attacking the idea, so much as the implementation.

Moreover, I now think this particular product is essentially a fraud.
