I was promised deradicalization of my NatSoc beliefs, and was instead banned. Ok the ban was only for 2 days. That seemed ok. But upon my second venture into this commie playground, I was again banned for 2 days. While I appreciate that bans aren't permanent or excessive in length, I don't understand what the point of this site is. No one seems to want to deradicalize me, much less talk to me as a human being. The leftypol forum is more finicky and douchey than the real /pol/ is. banning people for not being left wingers? Are you serious guys. How are you going to win people to your side if you immediately take a massive dump on new visitors, and then ban them for being politically to the right of communism? I often am frustrated by the lack of intelligence and acceptance within my ranks in National Socialism, but this appears to be an even greater problem here with red boys and girls. Nothing about that trolly shit show called leftypol would ever make me reconsider my NatSoc beliefs. So anyway. I'll probably be banned for this too. Censorship is for genetic mistakes who need a safe space to keep from wilting anytime they're presented with stimuli they can't handle.

Updated: Dec.30 10:30PM UTC
This OP will (hopefully) remain updated with the latest information on voting. I won't be explaining too much about the process as it's currently only unofficially being used until a new constitution is written. The basics are that any staff member can create a [proposal]. Two other users approve this proposal for voting, this is not approval of the measure but of the clarity and purpose of the proposal. Once approved it can become a [vote]. Votes finish in 3 days or when a vote has majority approval/disapproval. There are also fast track votes, but we don't need to get into those. With that out of the way, here's the current view:

Ongoing Propositions:
* Proposal: Vote on whether we should use our public names in the mod meeting, if names should be up to moderator choice, or whether all mods should only be identified via numbers.

* Vote: Extension of 3 days on board merger vote. – Vote ends Jan.3rd – 4 yay
* Vote: Have a conversation on switching staff rooms from matrix to another, self-hosted, FOSS software. Possible alternatives include, but not limited to: rocket.chat, session messenger, matterhorn, zulip, scuttlebutt, jabber. – 5 yay 2 abstain – Ends January 8th
* Vote: Merge /games/ and /anime/ into /hobby/ (while keeping a backup of the current threads of each for future use) Vote ends 31st Dec 10pm UTC – 6 yay 3 nay

Recently Completed:
* Get rid when possible of the side bar and the HTML frames in the home page. – PASSED 6 yay
* Vote: delete hidden boards from leftypol – PASSED 5 yay
* Make Dark Red the Default Theme for now. – PASSED 4 yay 3 nay

Sorry about that. Mods should not be banning on all boards. You can always contact mods through the matrix but I know thats not convenient for everyone. I'll remind everyone to not do that.

ITT retrieve old and currently-missing /leftypol/ flags that would be good to add back.
I found the Technocrat and snibetti snab flags. I know the Anarcho-Transhumanism flag is missing and I want to find it and have it added back if possible (t. anarcho transhumanist anon). Pics related

P.S. the "Athiesm" flag is misspelled, it's spelled Atheism.

I hereby respectfully request that porn should be banned from /b/. Porn has no place in a leftist forum. It is ridiculous that I might be subject to porn every time I click on /overboard/. I have filtered /b/, but it still shows up in the /overboard/ catalog. That said, even if I could filter /b/ from the catalog, it would still be unacceptable. New users looking for serious leftist discussion will be turned away when they open /overboard/ and it's full of porn from /b/ (and low quality shitposts for that matter, but I digress). Ever since /b/'s inception, there has regularly been a porn thread on /overboard/. Think of what impression this makes on new users. Imagine visiting this website for the first time and then seeing this thread on the top of /overboard/: https://leftypol.org/b/res/9485.html.

On another note, I respectfully request that /b/ should be completely deleted. /b/ promotes and only promotes low level discourse, and it has quickly become a cesspit that shits up /overboard/ ever since its inception. I see no point for the existence of /b/ except that it's a remnant of other general chans. However, this is /leftypol/, not a 4chan/8chan clone. This website should be focused on leftist discussion. The side boards (e.g., hobby, tech, edu, etc.) are fine since the thread in there are high quality discussions that are at the very least tangentially related to leftism. I cannot say the same about /b/.

This plus a ban to non-missionary porn


might be La'Tecia Thomas


>If leftypol can be the only website I use foreverthing then why shouldn't it?
oh well then if it's the only website you use maybe it should also provide you with an email account as well, banking account, food delivery… if you couldn't tell, your argument is retarded and so are you.


Boorus do a much better job at providing you porn than the random board on a niche leftist imageboard does.

Many rightoids come to visit this site and argue/converse with us, however most of them regurgitate old talking points and memes. So some of us write detailed responses to their oft repeated points and simply use that copy pasta to counter them.However in posting these pastas we spoil good threads. So could the mods create some sort of permanent thread on /Edu/ or some other board which we could store arguments in and link to them when in contention. We could have sections of detailed response for each rightoid argument and If we got good enough counter arguments we could even have an official Leftypol FAQ.

I think It would be better if it was more acessible so I made a thread on /edu/ since i've never seen Leftypedia being used and that would be more convenient. I'm only posting extremely high Quality pasta but you could delete it if you want, If you don;t then could you Please sticky it or make it permanent since it's supposed to be an ammunition dump anyone can contribute to.
Thank You



Also can the mods archive high quality debate threads like this one.


Mods, Mods! someone please sticky my /edu/ thread.

>ban posts with less than 200 characters
>people must now write a fucking essay to bitch about simple problems they have living under capitalism
>board slowly slides into tankies having arcane arguments about their respective ideologies and divorced from material reality
Who saw that coming? I didn't.

I could do that but then it wouldn't be 1/10th as witty and therefore wouldn't get as many replies.


>lived experience



holy fuck I can't literally write a medium length sentence about the topic I want to discuss, this is fucking oppression :'(

>effortposts are buried under dozens of generic memey one-liners
i hate having to dig through shit to strike gold


All the good posts could be moved to their own separate board


Posts are valued not by the effort you spend making them, but by the SNLT.

It just seemed like the storeshitters got slightly more vocal and arrogant for a moment


really puts
>Nah, this one is definitely more insufferable. The constant raids of the past years are tame in comparison.
into perspective, last raid I at least saw it
