Recent events have once again highlighted the necessity of a truly communal, self-governed anonymous discussion forum. This thread is for the development of new forms of decentralized anonymous image boards.

The problem in need of a solution is this: [b]How can we develop a forum that genuinely empowers its community and allows them to resist censorship?[/b]

One recent attempt is NNTPChan/Overchan. NNTPChan is a decentralized imageboard that uses the NNTP protocol (network-news transfer protocol) to synchronize content between many different servers. It utilizes cryptographically-signed posts to perform optional/opt-in decentralized moderation. I'm still rather confused on how moderation works there myself.

This seems like a great idea, by distributing a forum across a collection of servers one can resist the disruption of any single server. When 8ch was shutdown by its DDoS provider, however, its community didn't find the motivation to learn from this and migrate to a censorship-resistance platform. Instead its subcommunities were scattered to the winds, the ones that survived coalescing back on a number of individual websites using the classical top-down server-owner structure, with all the authority and alienation from its userbase that it necessarily contains. What lessons can be learned from this? Is there more that can be done?

There's absolutely no reason for not allowing sign-ups with vpns/TOR and activating the accounts after the payment has gone through
Do there exist any alternatives that aren't glowies?

This is as retarded and spooky as claiming imageboards are "meant" to be filled with anime or that tripcodes are inherently bad (why are they shipped with every imageboard software then?). The sysadmin decides whatever the fuck they want to do with the software.

The only reason Futaba and by extension 4chan didn't archive threads is because bandwidth and storage were expensive as fuck back then. On the other hand, 2ch has archived every single thread since its creation in 1999 because, well, it's all just text.

Yeah there is definitly an argument to be made against auto archiving on imageboards but users freely archiving stuff and distributing it is pretty much the spirit of the old internet

Discord should not be treated as trustworthy software. Why?

A) It is proprietary software.
https://www.gnu.org/proprietary/proprietary.en.html

B) Discord is owned, maintained and operated by a corporation called Hammer and Chisel. They are operating under a profit incentive which runs contrary to your privacy.

C) Aforementioned corporation was co-founded by Jason Citron, who is also the CEO.
Citron also founded OpenFeint.
https://archive.is/BLs0w
https://archive.is/LACYK
In 2011, OpenFeint was party to a class action suit with allegations including computer fraud, invasion of privacy, breach of contract, bad faith and seven other statutory violations. According to a news report "OpenFeint's business plan included accessing and disclosing personal information without authorization to mobile-device application developers, advertising networks and web-analytic vendors that market mobile applications"

Also before anyone tries to say the Microsoft buyout talks are over-hyped look at this:
https://archive.is/YXRXb
Microsoft owns Xbox. They did a partnership with Xbox months ago. They are obviously in contact.

F) Now, about Microsoft. They own Skype, and they have handed fuckloads of user data to the NSA on request.
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/jul/11/microsoft-nsa-collaboration-user-data
https://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2014/05/encrypted-or-not-skype-communications-prove-vital-to-nsa-surveillance/
So Discord is actively looking at essentially handing their entire company to people who are known to give up user data to the NSA (not that Discord hasn't worked with glowies themselves in the past).

Yes, it's Glowiecord.

Darknet markets are as close as it gets to a free market, where you can order drugs and have it delivered to you by mail. The purpose of this thread is to discuss opsec, ask for help and discuss markets in general. This thread should be fully legal as long as you don't solicit or facilitate illegal transactions, meaning:

&ltDon't beg to buy from someone
&ltDon't attempt to sell to anyone here
&ltDon't link to dealer Instagram/Reddit/Snapchat accounts. These accounts are run by either scammers or feds.
&ltDon't directly link to any market. These links could be fake scam/fed markets, designed to phish your login details and steal your cryptocurrency. Only use https://dark.fail/

The following is my personal recommendation for good opsec while conducting business, however, you must [b]read the darknet market bible[/b] (.pdf attached) after you are done with this post. If you don't read theory, it's likely you will be caught and convicted.

>Will I be 100% safe?

In theory, no. The darknet market bible, together with this thread, is meant to minimize the risk of getting caught as much as possible. If you follow the exact procedure outlined in the bible, you should be okay, especially as a small-time buyer.

Tails
Tails is an Linux-based operating system that runs entirely on your RAM and is wiped when PC is powered off. If the cops intercept your item, conduct a controlled delivery and seize your machine, they will not be able to find evidence linking you to the package and you can deny involvement via a lawyer.
You will want to install the Tails operating system to a USB flash drive with at least 8GB of storage. Personally, I'd go for USB 3.0, with at least 16GB storage for persistent volume purposes, or even 128GB or more if you want to store the Monero local node on it. You also need a PC with at least 1GB RAM to run Tails. The bible contains a guide for installing Tails in [b]2.A.2 Installing Tails[/b]. You can download it here:

>A Dutch financial newspaper reports the European Union (EU) wants to establish a new regulation that would “force electronics manufacturers to facilitate easier battery replacements.”


>It’s been years since flagship phones and laptops came with easily removable batteries, especially from companies like Apple. Have tech companies pulled the wool over our eyes? Or do people not care as much about removable batteries as the EU thinks?


>If you buy a phone today, chances are you can’t easily remove the battery yourself. If you really want to try it out, it’ll require dozens of steps, including the removal of delicate pieces like the screen and the logic board. It’s not for the faint of heart.


>I took a poll, asking people if an easily replaceable battery was a major factor when buying a phone. Unsurprisingly, the overwhelming majority wouldn’t buy a phone just for a replaceable battery.


>Maybe we’ve all fallen for Apple’s marketing schemes. Maybe we could’ve had super-thin, sturdy phones with replaceable batteries all along. We believed the explanation that Apple provided because its phones thin and waterproof, and that’s what we wanted at the time.


Hopefully this applies to laptops too.

They only do this sort of stuff because the US has the monopoly on tech and its a way to rival them. Its just inter-porky infighting and is naive to praise one side

The widespread adoption of IPv6 will make anonymous imageboards obsolete. The address space is simply too large to prevent spam.

Imageboards will be forced to implement accounts, even if the posting remains anonymous.
