I've been banned twice now for no discernible reason. all it tells me is that I was banned the exact moment I tried to post something and that I cannot post for another week, I could understand if I did something against the rules but I haven't even been told why that is so I don't know what to correct or stop doing.

no, I haven't been using one


Absolutely hilarious that they do this for free


What does the ban message say?


I went back to check, but it seems the ban was lifted even though it said I would have to wait till the 28th.


All the world's a stage and we on it merely actors


Why was my anti natalism thread deleted?

is anti natalism banned on leftypol now?

>Anti natalism is a form of anticapitalist praxis


>Not a janny tho.
I'm just going to assume you are a janny mostly because they refuse to post with their capcodes on /meta/ for "some" reason.


Are you still beating your mom tho?


No, but your mom is beating me off and she is enjoying it.


You are boring, predictable. I was making yo mama jokes when you were no more than a clump of cells.


Four pages of this is fucking absurd, and only some are related to Alunya. I think its time we put of foot down and tell Grace Anon that the booru is not a storage area for them and we will delete anything grace related not related to Alunya/leftypol. It floods the booru and makes it so that you have to go through several pages to browse it for leftypol OC


Uh-uhm… I like it. Thanks to anon :3


grace has paid for alunya art so why not let them use the booru in return, it's fine




>sexualized cartoons = principles


This website needs a travel board


You mean a board to doxx users by their movement?


why not just use hobby?


yeah there is a travel thread in hobby already:

I made a thread a while ago for making a cytube channel for a leftypol road trip if anyone's interested:


No wonder I didn't see that thread, it's on page 15


I think that the Tor posting should be allowed again but Tor user cannot post images or create threads and must complete a CAPTCHA before posting.

/leftypol/'s homebrew captcha doesn't require javascript iirc, its only ever been used like twice during big spam/raids though.


but why


>retarded opinion


who are you quoting


The OP clearly

"Hi I'm a team leader at subvert.io private intelligence agency. It's a great place to work. I have unlimited access to the latest and greatest GPT bots, 30 analysts and 100 junior shitposters….I mean posting colleagues. We contract to the government agencies, the other government agencies, psycho right wing billionaires, university research departments, gulf monarchs and overseas governments too. We like to say there's no forum too obscure to penetrate, control, embrace and neuter!"

What structures are in place to make sure that I'm not wasting my time posting on some kind of controlled truman show illusion?

Like, wouldn't it be best practice for the weblord or whatever to post daily stats and analysis of site data and posting patterns? What would be best practice for a anonymous left imageboard in 2022 to make sure important customers like me aren't wasting their time?

Need some reassurance before I can love again.

Capitalism moment


i've thought about this a bunch of times, but then i realized i don't care either way


This was pretty prescient. Has it been addressed by mods in a post anywhere?

>Options field is a dropdown menu with a single option
Do the devs know there's checkboxes for that?

Nah it's just they thought it being an email field made people not use it much, and noobs didn't know what saying was so they wanted something plain language. Should be a checkmark with the word sage, with hoverable alt-text explaining what saging is.


>with the word sage
but why


It's shorter.


but space isn't an issue


There should be a [] sage checkbox before [] Spoiler image and get rid of the options row.

The eternal internal debate of whether to tell some retard to fuck off and risk derailing the thread with a pointless "discussion" or just ignoring, hiding and reporting at the risk of newcomers seeing those posts and thinking they're acceptable behavior on leftypol.

<22 replies, page 1


sometimes it's buddy samefagging, just report and ignore


I just have to repeat, the absolute irony
Maybe it has all been worth it just to experience this moment

<debate me bro!


It's worse when it's done way later and you see some dumbass bumping a shitty thread from months ago


Why is the Matrix server not end to end encrypted?

Whoever has rights to this room should enable end to end encryption.

I understand that because there are around 300 users in the room at current count you might think that this doesn't give much security but actually it gives more than you think.

First of all if the users are using the public matrix .org server, and then that server is a counterparty and can read all of the messages. Why let them? And the same is true of any other public or semi public server.

And even in the case where it's a law enforcement who for whatever stupid reason wants to see, having them end to end encrypted makes the investigation more costly because they have to find somebody with the key who is willing to share it. That's not hard to do when you got 300 people to go through but it is definitely work and won't get done in an hour, probably has a turn around time around 6 for the feds.

Finally there is the point that ISPs can read all the messages. It's just not smart to leave it off

Interesting points, thanks. I did not know that there was some limitation as to the number of users that you could have within an encrypted group. This makes me think that the implementation that Matrix itself is using is wrong because typically what you want to do is make a single key for the room, and then just encrypt that key, which is itself a private key that gives you access, against all of the users that have access. This way you only have to actually encrypt the messages once, the same as in a small group.

Some systems do rotation as well, for example when users are leaving and joining it might rotate the key either every time that happens or every 10 minutes, whichever takes longer.



Looking at this page I understand perfectly why it's so difficult, but this doesn't really mean their implementation is wrong, it's just maximally secure which is okay for small groups but not good for large groups as you said.


And by the way I have no particular security concern. That isn't the point, the point is I don't believe in giving people any more data than they're entitled to, and so I didn't see a reason that all the various counterparties here should get data that they otherwise would not if the option were just how I thought it worked.

Thanks for explaining.


In practice, anyone who isn't a complete retard could get access to the chat. So e2e encryption might even be harmful by giving the impression of offering privacy. Anything you post there and here should be considered public. For 98+% of people, you can call your local FBI agency, NSA, etc, tell them you're a leftist, post on 4pol your address and political affiliations and literally nothing will happen to you.

I still think you should try to be private and secure, but the paranoia is sometimes blown out of proportion.


>In practice, anyone who isn't a complete retard
Kinda a funny point.
Thankfully we've never had an enemy, such as they are, who wasn't an absolute retard. But the possibility shouldn't be disregarded to keep safe.


The "IQ of a mentally challenged pug" filter already excludes like 80% of the problematic people lmao
