I hope this rule only applies to /leftypol/ and /edu/.
>ANOTHER shitty useless "constitution"
maybe if you wasted less time larping with this constitutional convention shit this discussion forum wouldn't be such a fucking hole
what's the point of saging a sticky??
when is leftypol getting an I2P link
Good manners. And tickies get bumped on the overboard.
It took me like an hour to update it, chill, if you have suggestions then here's your forum
yeah get rid of the anti-"idpol" rule. it's cringe and enables concern trolls
>>743292SHUT THE FUCK UP LIB
Anti-IDpol is more important today than in the early days of this community.
>>743292>We believe that conflicts between genders, races, sexualities, and so on are distractions from the wider class struggle that are intentionally fanned by the ruling class.
maybe but they're definitely not sponsoring anti-oppression politics in any meaningful way, despite what /pol/ infographic-tier clickbait "sources" say>This does not mean that oppression based on personal characteristics does not exist, but that it should be approached from an egalitarian perspective which is not personally accusatory and does not assign ‘victim’ and ‘oppressor’ groups.
race isn't based on personal characteristics, tons of white-skinned people used to be classified as un-white and still are to this day. race is a social phenomenon>The rights of individuals to live according to their own wishes is a fundamental part of leftism.
don't even know what this means, is it a freeze peach type thing?
also there are a thousand more effective ways to distract from concrete class struggle for the booj than "idpol"
no! Enforce the anti-idpol rule.
I mean look at this shit >>743146 >>743075 >>743052 >>743251 >>743291
Hadn't thought of it in the past year. It feels like it would have approximately one user, so it hasn't been high up on the oversized TODO list, despite being a good move. Plus, we don't have any experience setting up eepsites so it would take some time to ensure it's secure (a quick read suggested we should use our main web server software rather than Caddy, thoughts?)
If there's interest from multiple users, it might get bumped up the priority list.
In fact, I should make a physical, public priority list to see what changes are actually wanted by users.
>>743303>The rights of individuals to live according to their own wishes is a fundamental part of leftism.
This sentence is so liberal and so fucking retarded that it is nearly impossible to unpack.>rights
lib shit>own wishes
lib shit>fundamental part of leftism>fundamental part>of leftism>leftism
I wasn't aware "leftism" was a theory current that has fundamental parts to it. You retard mods think that cleaning shit off of an imageboard is the same as reading theory. It is obvious whoever wrote that shit is an idiot who doesn't understand the fundamental of Marxism. There are no Robinson Crusoe "individuals", people are socially determined, you literally wouldn't be you without society. Rights don't exist, read Marx. There is no such thing as free will, there are no "own" wishes. "Leftism" is an ambiguous term that includes liberals half the time it is used, how can anything be a "fundamental part of it", especially the fucking lib shit.
F, see me after class janny
What if I told you we put that in there as a joke?
Personally I think the sentence didn't exactly turn out well, however this is not a marxist board.
Look if you think of a better way to phrase it then by all means do so, but I wanted to make clear that we don't tolerate gaybashing et cetera.
Might I add that we had a more marxist version of this but it was decided that it would be harder to understand for people not as versed in class politics and theory, and in this specific case clarity was more important.
As a public document it's best to write it for the lowest common denominator to clearly articulate the rules.
not necessarily, but for any potential morons in the audience its good to put it in very simple and common terminology. mind this is meant as much for randoms stumbling across the board and wanting to know the rules as much as /leftypol/ regulars.
We should have a “mandate of Heaven” feature where if 80% of the users want the current mods out, they will be removed.
That's all well and good until you realize how few people volunteer for the job.
Also that would be impossible to verify since this is an anonymous board.
You verify through IP
people cycle IPs regularly, plus everyone using the TOR node counts as 1 IP. Its unworkable, its why all forms of user democracy without some kind of account verification are impossible.
also, 80% of what users? the total IP count of the site, which is likely deflated cause the TOR node? the hourly IPs, which fluctuates wildly? its completely unworkable.
Who will tackle CP spam then? Who will tackle gore then?
the idpol rule should apply to nationalism
It applies to extreme nationalism. However, maybe that could be expanded in scope.
hey I know what….. happened ;w;. and I want to say I'm sorry. I just went into a paranoid frenzy because I know enough about computers to know what they could potentially trace back to me, control, put on and manipulate, and I mind just went racing in all these different directions and I didn't know what to do. Needless to say I am not careful and I knew that. and I didn't know what would happen, and I guess you now know why that is based on what I saw. I'm sure you meant that whole shubang to be come enlightening experience but all it really did was scare me. I know it wasn't your fault but guess…. you gotta look at material reality lol.
Thanks for the hug either way.
Um, are you okay anon?
ukrop wildin out
why does everyone have a name now?
Donald Trump test
hehe you cannot choose a name
Check the date, ladies.
maybe this change should remain so the namefags are permanently neutralized
Wait hol up…
Sorry for samefagging, but why did no one even reply to or notice the GET?
Because no-one cares and this is the wrong thread.>>833322
This proposal may be of interest: >>>/meta/17253
>>835088>Because no-one cares and this is the wrong thread.
S-sorry, which thread would be the correct one to post in?
idk maybe somewhere in >>>/siberia/
I understand that I am ban-evading, but it is for a reason. Moderation team has completely failed to provide any sort of response on their decision to make Ukraine general a complete and total echo-chamber that is all-but r/anarchism just pro-Russia.>>>/meta/15632
Which is supposed to be a place for feedback regarding bans has been silent for about a month when it comes to any official responses bearing ##mod stickers, despite many complaints over low-effort description bans over being anti-Russia, all labeled as "glow" or "nazi" or "pol" or "nato shill".
I am posting this here in hopes that just maybe mods will finally give any sort of answer instead, and also hoping that maybe some anons who aren't /meta/ watching autists will also see this. If jannies want to ban me for this, so be it, go ahead. You'll only be banning a terminally online loonatic that is no different from yours truly.
This might surprise you but your childish tantrums do not entitle you to a response from the jannies, especially considering how vigilant they currently have to be to stop the influx of shills. And even if they did have the time to respond to you, you don’t deserve any acknowledgment. All that would do is validate your Russophobic hysteria, and we get more than enough of that from American propaganda. Get range banned, and for what it’s worth I hope you live just long enough to see Russia steamroll your Nazi enclave that you call a nation and be brought back into the fold as an SSR.
not real>I hope you live just long enough to see Russia steamroll your Nazi enclave that you call a nation and be brought back into the fold as an SSR
So why exactly is >>877698 bumplocked but >>875384 is not?
because the link between fascism and homosexuality has been debunked many times
They're both bumplocked now, it seems.
Yeah ive yet to see any that aren't obvious trolls
God has denied the homosexuals
1M GET coming up
what was the get??
'Ukraine unblock me on twitter' meme and a declaration that kulaks would be destroyed
Tbf it was getZ
, the duality of /leftypol/ and wot nhat…
Where's the thread on #masonleaks and why can't I find anything about it apart from a few posts in a UK thread?
Amazing insights into the UK state information apparatus.
WHY THE FUCK I CAN'T PUT IMAGES ON MY POST!!!!!!!
t… tha… thanks owo👉👈
Moderation of this site is absolutely shit. Gotta laugh at how you allow users to openly use antisemitic slander. Joke of a site.
b-b-b-but thats how they do it on t3h "chans"!
And if you don't clean up filth you'll attract filth.
indeed. fuck the mods, they're poltards
>>1018509>>1016896>vaguebooking instead of using the report function
Hello where is the proofs?
Cite me one instance of someone posting "kill da jews" without that poster being a /pol/ brigader who gets banned an hour later.
lol alright then I'll do that, see if you do anything.>>1022825
It's a lot more than that. You can get away with calling the Jews responsible for communism.
>>1022997>You can get away with calling the Jews responsible for communism.
Considering that /leftypol/ from its inception on 8chan was literally fighting that bullshit from day fucking one it's clear that you're mistaking false flags as actual legitimate posts.
The /leftypol/ thread "Why is /pol/and so fucking right-wing?" Is overrun by /pol/yp raiders and constantly derailed. Mods don't react to reports. Could you please look into it and clean up?
Here is someone calling a Poolish a Jew based on how she looks. Also Russophobia and anti-Semitism>>1022930
And this one spreads the Jewish bankers myth.>>1023086
Both posts are older than an hour and still there. I also reported them already. And it's just the tip of the Iceberg.
Hello? Anybody home??? Mods?
Got a lot of false flags then.
yes, they have historically been a significant number of posts here
Is the UKR thread gone?
>>1022997>You can get away with calling the Jews responsible for communism.
You get triggered for something… not so bad?
I mean, Jews were hated because they made themselves richer for giving a shit about interests on loans. The New Testament forbid that, and that's one of the reasons Jews are hated, but that doesn't mean they are evil per se, nor that the Semitic origins of Marx, Trotsky, etc. are evil and make it a bad thing for communism. Precisely because Marxism cultivates the idea of a fairer world, so kudos for Jews having this breakthrough in a shifting philosophical view, I guess?
Filth comes when you make the Jews the center of all evil. I do not see the conception of communism as something evil, but as the superior philosophical and final productive form the human society can evolve.
