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

What actually prompted the soyjak ban? Was it really just the "bussiness proposal" thread? Popular demand? The soy machine from 2020? Or was it just mods powertripping?(Derailed, question answered)

Probably because this person doesn't want to be held accountable for his stupid ass posts. I made a post in the sticky the other week asking why I'd been banned and my thread deleted and his response was to call me a schizo. It's incomprehensible behavior for a mod, really.


Moss are made up of the dregs of regular posters, what do you expect?


It doesn't have to be this way.
The mod team back in 8gag was nowhere near this insufferable, not even a fraction.


Then why are you responding you fucking moron. I quoted that person and responded to it. You are genuinely a brain damaged retard


What they are is the worst possible posters. That is the reason they became mods, they got dunked on all the time and couldn’t handle it

"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.

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?


how? what? why?

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.

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

>"Leftism" is a bad descriptor that reinforces the "left-right" garbage.
>"Anti-capitalism" is a more accurate, direct, and less vague descriptor.
petition to rename /leftypol/ to /nocappol/ frfr ong /shitpost


yea anticapitalism is so accurate it encapsulates shit like people wanting to retvrn to feudalism


imo tbh desu leftism works fine as a general descriptor for political ideologies honestly. anti-capitalism is not more accurate, as the other guy pointed out, plus there are capitalists welcome here like sucdems and progressive liberals that aren't class pilled yet. leftism as a general quality is what distinguishes us from other right wing imageboards


but that would make /prc/ off-topic

So many polisci people have been tricked into believing left-right typology is a real empirical metric and not a subjective characterization of more complex trends.


lmao but /isg/ and /USApol/ not
probably cause you are the guy shitting them up all day, right. what a fucking retarded post

The state has finite resources with which to monitor and control the population. A maniac sowing chaos and lasering random people draws those resources away from combating hostile political groups.

As Mao said: "Everything under heaven is utter chaos. The situation is excellent.".

Of course, jannies who were crypto-liberal larpers who's objectives revolve around the bullshit emitted by Judith Butler would be hostile to anything that might upset the existing social order, despite publicly denying their support for said social order.

New laseranon dropped


I actually love and respect laserbro but he could probably get a little more subtle with his fedposting which some nerds think is LE BAD


he's not even white, he's a native guy. he just has schizo beliefs about jewish people
this but unironically

proles and especially lefties should be knowledgeable in any and all military technology


>he's a native guy
What reason would you have to believe that? His own word? You know believing the mentally infirm is a path to not a very good mental state yourself. But what do I know? I just do this as a hobby.
