Results seem politically skewed

Just looked up “Creation Museum Biblical authority”. T he first two results were a hit piece attack on the Bible Museum in DC. Not the same museum and also a liberal slant. When I type in my interests, 99% of the time the search brings up an attack some liberal journalist made.

Having used your search engine for a while, I have to say it seems extremely bias toward the left.

If your algorithm relies heavily on user data you have to understand that it will be bias and censor by default (whether this is intentional or not). Another thing to take into account is that if users perceive your search engine as bias (and do not get what they are looking for) you are most likely to lose these users, making your search results even more bias (because your user base only retain users that share this bias). This is a common problem in ML based algorithms (which is why data is often redistributed/altered using standard techniques such as SMOTE etc before actually feeding any algorithm).

At your scale I’m not so sure you should rely this heavily on user-data. Most search engines will do fine with searches related to mathematics or non-political or non-opinion related searches. However when it comes to politics or view-points, this can become an issue.

Im not normally on Russia side but They were right on both statements when our gov and media got caught lying to all of us. Russia said they were going in to get the Nazis out and Go after the bio-labs… Well what do we find… Ukraine Does have a huge Nazi group and we just dumped billion of our tax dollars to support them. We also learn they have been killing tons of their own people for years. Then the Gov and our media and FACT CHECKER lied to us about their being Bio-labs. All until Marko Rubio asked them and they spilled the beans. So now they use our tax money to destroy illegal bio-labs they denied we supported… all TIED into Hunter and Joe which Trump was so called impeached for DARE asking and looking into the connection. This is why a fair and real search engine is needed. Most have no clue whats going on and most media is controlled and corrupted. I have reported to Brave about the one sided search. I look on this forum and many people complained for a while and looks like after a year they still cant even it out. Sad.

The brave forums have become so interesting to view these days

Thats because People are waking up to the truth. There is a Deep state Uni-party. People are waking up that Big tech has been working with the gov to censor and silence people. Even IF some people are still un-informed enough to think Biden won, surely they can see the bans of so many people on YT, Twitter, Facebook. A bias search engine is a from of censorship. Many went to Brave to not have all our info throw out there. We wanted a place that that will be open and show real info. Many of the searches I do in brave look like the results came from Huffington post. ITs silly and sad. This issue has been pointed out for a while now. IT should be that hard to add in stuff from OAN, Epoch, The gateway Pundit, etc. Showing me a list of all the groups that Lied about Russia collusion for 4 years, Liked about the origin of Covid 19 and STILL cover it up, lied about Hunters laptop (Remember: the 50 ex intelligence officers that signed saying it was fake. funny how there is no accountability or attacks on them for lying), They lied about illegal bio labs in Ukraine for which Joe has sent 60 billion too and no one knows where the money is going too. The Deep state played all of us for decade. R vs. D… over and over while they got their people in both groups. The game is up and Trump exposed them. 7 years of attacking him should have woke everyone up. Our borders are invaded with million of illegal, Crime up, Gas and inflation up, Billions being thrown around, Elections are still being rigged… People are waking up. Some slower then others. Anyone still calling themselves Americans with any pride need to watch the Mike Lindell event on Rumble(Youttube wont allow it). There you WILL see PROOF the media has been hiding from you. State Investigators, State Auditors, Non-partisan voter groups. So much sick fraud and then know what the main media including fox is hiding. I dont want Brave to do the same censorship.


You completely mis-read my post

Telegram asks for your phone number. They collect data, obviously. Also they censor comment sections.

He completely misread your ambiguious, snarky, one sentence post. True

Yep you got it in one :slight_smile:

It’s the mids if the channel or other people flagging what you write on telegram. Not telegram itself.
I am in one Russia channel. There is ukro people coming in and they wish death upon each other nonstop. Telegram itself never ever censor any of it. It is a moderator if the channel who deals with those things.
So what they have my phone number. What they gonna do with it? Look at it? I have never ever gotten any random messages or calls from anyone trying to sell me things.
And telegram itself does not run ads on the app as well. So I don’t get what the fuss is about.
If you are that crazy about your data, don’t use a phone, dont use a computer, get off the internet completely, stay in your home 24/7. Oh wait. If you order food you have to give someone your address. You get where it is going. Don’t have to be so paranoid about everything.

The whole point of using Brave is for data privacy.

Seems like they are trying to chop up the DuckDuckGo market which is a small market and that is it.

Brave has no opportunity to compete with Google directly with search quality, maps or shopping.

Brave does not have the datamining infrastructure to match Google and they likely never will.

Brave does not have 100s of megawatts of power, storage capacity or processing power to compete with Google.

People think Google is only SaaS. In reality it is more IaaS.

The only thing Brave could make a superior product with its search is News which would attract tens of millions of users if they decide not to be woke themselves with search.

If Brave merely tries to compete with privacy their market will be limited mostly to computer scientists and criminals that understand the value of privacy.

Personally, when it comes to finding solutions when writing software, finding restaurants and directions to get somewhere, I am forced to use Google since their product is superior.

I am aware of Google’s lack of respect for privacy and the dangers.

However needing to solve problems instantly provides instant relief rather than more long term relief from privacy protection.

Instant gratification will usually supersede prioritizing long-term gratification with most people.

This is evidenced by the low United States savings rates, eating crappy food that contradicts dieting commitments and countless other things.

Closing this thread as much of the discussion is no longer constructive and only tangentially related to Brave/Search.
