Why was the thread about collective action and alienated single straight people almost instantly deleted?

Hello everyone. This is the thread to make proposals. Feel free to have your say whether user or mod. We have these proposals did not pass last week, but may be worthy of further discussion:

Proposal: Moderator votes remain the counted votes in admin decisions, but users should let vote using strawpolls (or perhaps polling systems built into the site?) per topic to display general user attitude to a proposal. If the majority User opinion directly opposes moderator majority vote then the proposals should be discussed and votes called on again after a break of 1-2 weeks to let people rethink positions on a topic.

Proposal: Make this the ‘official’ Leftypol channel >>>/leftypol/534666

Proposal: I think that we should also keep the current userbase engaged, making things like weekly game tournaments, actual organized debates, movie nights followed by discussion and so on. I've been thinking that a weekly leftypol podcast could be a good idea, just a couple of anons talking about what happened in the board and the world during the past week and inviting people to talk if they so desire, we could have debates there, and interviews and other things, and share it on spotify for others to see.

>ad hominum
<Hurr censorship is good stoopid conspiritard don't question "the facts"
You're on the wrong site.


conspiracism is literally liberalism


I agree that swiss-cheesing is annoying, where theres just a bunch of replied to dead posts. Then you also get people replying to already-deleted posts. I was supposed to make the thread updater mark deleted/warned posts maybe a year ago, I will make that priority #1.
>leftypol loves taking the bait so youd just end up banning way too many people
Do we want to be in a position where taking the bait is normal? Honest question, not rhetorical: dumb stuff can be entertaining.
If we do want that to change, is it better to try and make a cultural shift as a community rather than enforce it by moderation?


>Do we want to be in a position where taking the bait is normal?
well like i said sometimes replies to bait are somewhat informative because the bait that gets the most responses here is malicious misinformation, but most of the time its just (well deserved) variations of "fuck off retard", those can go for sure


though i guess the issue is that this means mods will have to waste time checking which orphaned posts are worth deleting and which ones arent every time they delete successful trolls

Let's talk about forced anon.

Why force anon?
Anonymity provides many benefits that other leftist communities don't provide.
>drama reduction
>removal of prejudice in responses, removing many potential causes of fallacious arguments (conscious or otherwise)
Users taking on identities encourages negative behaviors.

There are some potential cases where an identity might be appropriate within a single thread, but users taking board-wide identities are antithetical to the strengths of this site. Their identity serves no purpose but to satisfy the ego.

<b-but muh leftytrash community!

Take it to GETchan, Matrix or just have namefaggotry on /siberia/ only. There are many, many communities purpose-built for those values. This should not be one of them.

It's really sad that this appears to be happening again. I can't seem to envision how to prevent it through traditional image board structures.


do tell what's the point


I neither agree nor disagree but what does this have to do with forum anonymity


>It's becoming increasingly obvious that most of the users here, and the mods, have no fucking clue what the point of Chan/Imageboards are.
Hosting images and discussing them.
Everything else is spooks.


>Hosting images and discussing them.
i love this newfag talking point because futaba didnt allow images at first lmao and they still have a [] No Image checkbox when making a new thread after all this time

Why in the name of fuck did I get banned for this topic? I thought this was a fucking leftist politically incorrect board? That's some real woke ass reddit tier moderation right there. Explain yourselvs mods.


Rule 14 G retard

< i also think saying slurs and being reactionary in on so called "culture war issues" is cringe

< every day on this website early 20s /pol/ converts tell me i'm a "rainbow fascist" or a "redditor" or a "radlib idpolista" and "not a real communist" because i find their "sense of humor" consisting entirely of alienating and reactionary tropes, whether it's antisemitic, or misogynistic, or pro-rape, or racist, or LGBTphobic, tiresome and counterproductive.

There is a serious contingent on this website of nazbols and strasserites on this board. They say they want the working class to own the means of production. They say they want to overthrow the bourgeoisie. Good.

>those ziggers are the mods themselves!
This is true unfortunately, both this and the sister site are made up primarily of revisionist campists who whip themselves over Russia and China all day for their "praxis".


>Ziggers literally salivate all over nuclear holocaust
You're confused, that's Posadists.


>racist slurs
You can't be racist against crackers, anglo.


And they have deleted my posts in a thread about kurds because I dared to poke holes in zigger kautskyite narrative
Also the sheer hypocrisy of ziggers claiming "w-we were always with kurds!" when they have fucking nuked the whole board with their "anti-imperialism" because "based Asad and based russkies! Kurds are cia wreckers!"
The same tankoids that cheered banning spergouts for "imperialism" of the OldBO are now gleefully bannig everyone for "NATO apologism"
Only this time there is no 8ch and no board creation
I warned then what that shitfuck TroonBO was trying to do with his forced migration spergout
Now we are stuck with an echochamber run by putinoid lunatics
Good fucking job, you fucking retards, all of you
Leftoid imbeciles


sure you are buddy, this happened

Vote: Introduce an autodelete function on /siberia/ and /leftypol/ which will delete threads which have less than 10 posts, once they reach page 10. This will reduce the number of dead threads, moved threads, or locked threads in the catalog and thereby give more space for more popular threads to last longer.

Vote ends in 72 hours.


Vote no. I feel this would kill a lot of what makes siberia fun. I love bumping old ass shitposts.


File: 1653262595800.jpg (97.65 KB, 1024x742, nkvd.jpg)

I vote yes, I think that good threads get bumped off too fast due to inactive ones or locked/moved stubs.



File: 1653271047068.png (440.63 KB, 1051x1102, really nigga.png)

we must secure the existence of threads that reached page 10 that will never get a single post until they get bumped off the whole board (that's 36 pages!) and a future for generals

Evidence of a junko denying the genocide of Palestinians by the imperialist Israeli government, repeating talking points made by hardline Zionists in the Israeli and US governments, as well as spouting schizo religious sectarianism that doesn't belong anywhere near leftist spaces.

Over the last few months we have seen countless anons banned for being "glowies" after making much more moderate and less sus posts abut Ukraine. Junko's posts break both the site idpol rules and past precedent set by mods. I can only assume that she is permitted to post stuff that regular anons would get banned on sight for simply because she is a tripfag and friends with the mods. I sincerely hope this is not the case and would like to be proven wrong.

I am a nonbinary jewish womxn from the bronx that writes critical opinion pieces in haaretz. Attached is a photo of my beautiful cat Norman Finklestein. Shalom.


The truth is that she's only going to get more extreme regarding the zionism shit, and you'll end up permabanning her for it eventually. Imagine what junks will be posting by the time the next intifada comes along. Hence why you probably want to nip this in the bud.



I don't understand how this hasn't been mentioned yet. They have been banned for zionism before more than once just not in the most recent thread you linked for whatever reason. This is by all appearances an oversight. However also note, I've never got a report on this shit. If there had been, it would not have gone like this at all.
I will refrain from trying to do anything about whatever is going on right now since we seem to have moved on (and you don't seem to be interested in the issue itself but in talking about other grievances), however in general of course zionism needs to be rooted out.


To summarize: Fuck Israel, fuck namefags
Send reports instead of being a twat about it after the fact

thoughts on generals?

>have some "organic" generals that haven't been enforced by the staff
90% of the generals are organic on this site, they already existed, the point is people are using them but some special snowflakes keep making split threads for no reason.
>anglo autism
<not making a mess
Sorry pal, being a messy fuck is pretty unliked by most cultures.


that's a 4chan thing that's immigrated to the other sites.


>special snowflakes
go back

>90% of the generals are organic on this site

is that why you keep whining in meta to have threads merged lmao


if you dont like a thread you can hide it, its just that simple


>go back
No u redditor
>you keep whining in meta to have threads merged
<everyone that does de thing I don't like is the same person
You're an entitled retard and you should take your meds, fuck off.
Sure, if its a matter of disliking a thread, that's not the problem here. I hide the Yuri thread because the spammer has made discussion in it impossible and its just pic spam and a waste of space to look at, but if others want it that's fine by me, no skin off my back and no harm done to the site. Same goes for the small recent threads popping up, since they're actually threads discussing specific topics that aren't seen in other OPs. Nobody is telling you not to make new threads, just don't make
A) Really shitty lo effort stuff
B) the same as an existing, active thread
Because that's just lazy faggotry.


Why do threads related to: reproduction, birth rates,abortion, sexual matters, etc. generate so much drama? Everytime you see one of these they're filled with hysterical people having the biggest fights and shitflinging contests. I really don't get it.
