why is this thread saged, its a legitimate topic of discussion. The NU-jannies are really banhappy.

It's an /isg/ topic, at least in presentation. I think there's a legitimate discussion to be had about the layoffs, but starting it off with redditism filled meltdown from someone that doesn't know what a PMC is doesn't seem like a good foundation for such discussion.

People will source to marx, not to agree with him but to say "marx agreed with me so Im right" like tell why was marx/Lenin/etc right? (Don't tell me rn I know y) like the fact the term revisionism even exists as accusation is dumb (not to endorse things that are called revisionist). Marx isnt infallible

Marx changed his opinion on a bunch of stuff. So merely quoting him is not doing justice to the development of thought nor the reasoning that led Marx to the conclusion being quoted. Conclusions without the context are useless.

i don't think i've even seen this happen
so counterpoint: why do people cite their own feelings like the bible?

Anyways easy solution: argue against the material they cite.

Btw I get the beef with the idea of revisionism, but generally when the word is applied it doesn't mean that someone just disagrees with the holy scripture, it means they've changed course with no reason (which is a very common thing - people get scared/confused/demoralized, and they fall back onto disproved ideas). It's a call for more thorough analysis and critique, it's not a thought stopping mechanism. When people use it as a thought stopping word to protect themselves from criticism just tell them to shove it. It's really not a complex problem. To break it down to its base elements:

Problem: some people are stupid
Solution: tell them to fuck off if they keep pestering without engaging in any real discussion - or just drop your knowledge/critique and fuck off yourself if you're the one pestering and this person wants to be set in their ways

false dichotomy. you can do analysis and also quote someone at the same time. For example the other day I pointed to how systemic homelessness in the USA is a form of social murder and then quoted Engels

I noticed a recent interaction that got me in the mood for a little rambling.

In the /prc/ China general there was someone who posted this link, https://twitter.com/CindyXiaodanYu/status/1597247427781984257?cxt=HHwWgoDQ9dWEyKosAAAA, to a video of protesters in China arguing with someone in a way that could be construed as coming from a pro-communist but anti-CPC tendency. The anonymous arguer says that the protests are sponsored by foreign agents and is replied to saying "what foreign agents?? Marx? Engels? Did foreign agents allow the fire to occur in the tower block? We can't even access the western internet we have no rights!"

Really, it's inconsequential. A group of random men with a megaphone, it's worthless to argue about. What is more important here is the behavior of the person who posted it. The post read "MAOIST WRECKERS BEHIND CHINA PROTESTS," and has the ban message from an admin saying "(astroturf IP) (potentially sussy amogus IP)," and in the replies are these messages which have also been linked to similar sussy IPs and banned -

It's unbelievable that in le West we need to remind "our comrades" that Marx literally advocated for building productive forces. It's in the fucking Communist Manifesto, btw.(I can see you ban evading buddy)

Glory to Mao. Glory to Mao Zedong thought. Glory to the Maoists of China and May they take over once more. Glory to the communes, glory to the red brigade. Down with the revisionists.(ban evading astroturf)

Notice the switching between differing tenancies wrapped in absurd flavored, cultish rhetoric. There are only two possibilities for what this person is; either a "glowie" or an anonymous hobbyist troll, and in that second possibility we could consider it a piece of art that draws to attention a potent astroturfing tactic that we've seen used before - the creating of cultist fringe tendencies within the communist movement that from a new reader gives off an air of insanity, of cultish frothing, spewing terms from marxist theory six per sentence whilst creating internal divisions within the communist community to generate internal battles between groups of people who, even though having differing opinions on what is "good or bad," still agree on the materialist analysis of what is going on in the real world.

When you are around people you begin to have their style of speech and ideas slowly encroach into your own via human instinct. You are not immune from these people. Look what happened with the turncoats who ran off to LARP with Haz.
The way it usually works, it's to get people to say and do things on their own initiative.

reality is predictable and boring - some mods are more right-wing, and some more left-wing (as socialists). There's a variety of opinions that get through, and mods moderate individually (which honestly probably leads to higher rates of deletions than if there was votes or smth, but that wouldnt be possible for hopefully obvious reasons)
so there u go, the simple banality of it.

I know someone on staff I believe is the New Multitude editor. To any passing mod/staff, are they active? I DM'd on Twitter about something but they haven't responded. Which fair they haven't been active on twitter for a few months? Is matrix the only way to contact them? Not familiar on how to get into the matrix, so I hadn't used it.

 No.23810

They aren't a staff member.
They do have a Matrix account and replied when I asked if they wanted us to add them to the top bar, that was a while ago but I assume they're still active.

Hello everyone, we have discussed the possibility of restarting /roulette/ in our latest meeting, we have come up with some idea for your consideration:

/grass/ - Board for everything non internet/screen/media related, eg cooking, sports, fitness, making friends, drugs, whatever. Cause we could all use a bit less internet.

/life/ - Pretty much the same as above but about only 'lifestyle' topics like cooking etc.

/tv/ - Television board since there are multiple active TV topics on /hobby/ and the general has gone to 500.

/antianglo/ - Board where no English language is allowed

OR

/antianglo/ - Board where nobody from the anglosphere is allowed (CANZUK+US) but English is allowed

OR

Sorry, I accidenctally pressed the button. Ignore: >>24112

Anyway, I was just thinking: why not make the roulette board a bulkanize board? It would let us see if whether or not it's a good idea, we can still keep the original boards if things go bad, and we can give the balkanize board a head start by importing threads.

If we do that I'm pushing for the merge of /games/ and /anime/, maybe call it /entertainment/

>>24007
I love porn, but we shouldn't do that. Porn boards don't actually contain conversations &'re just places to dump what you're into.

i>>1280561
We shouldn't. /siberia/ functions well as a higher quality of /b/, banning porn would hurt the board since what "should be deleted" will fall under a slippery slope.
Also porn makes the pph increase which encourages the use of the board, the problem with /games/, /anime/, and /tech/ – are that they feel/are dead and it no one wants to be the one person to revive the board(s).

twitter.com should word filter to nitter.net so all /leftypol/ers can be directed to that front end instead of the main site whenever a twitter link gets posted to reduce potential data collection. It wont break any links just make them viewed by the front end. Using the url it also wont add an annoying needless confusing conversion of Twitter to Nitter. Twitter links get posted often. What this will do is help protect us from more invasive datamining from Twitter.
