You guys are aware that everybody connects you to idpol transhumanists, liberals LARPing as AntiFa and cuckold fetishists, and that this is hurting your cause?
I lurked this website for a month now and i noticed a fundamental difference between the posters who are here to actually talk to others and the posters who link to 4chan to ask for support in some ridiculous bait thread where you just waste time.

I also noticed that you have a thread talking about if an imageboard would be better as a single-page-application.
I am currently working on my own imageboard from scratch. I am actually a web-developer and know my stuff, so (i hope) it won't be just another 4chan rip-off. I am going to use node - react - redux - sequelize for mysql - redis.
I am visiting different boards to gather ideas, but i see the same sorry state everywhere. I seriously want to make something good.

it's also so that people get drip-fed dopamine and keep coming back for more. If you gave them everything at once, they'd take a second to look, see everything, and leave.
If you make them scroll up and make it so that they never really are in control of what they see, they stay on your service longer because they have an incentive to keep pushing the stupid button to get a treat

A rocket China launched went into orbit but the launcher also accidentally went into orbit and will fall down within the next two weeks. It's pretty big, but it's not gonna come down and nuke a country. It'll likely catch fire on reentry and debris will fall into the ocean. There's still a possibility of it hitting civilization though.

I bet everyone's making a fuss about something that happens often because this time it's Chinese.

Sometimes while using the onion website it says my posts are flood for dozens of minutes on end.
Could you possibly fix that?
Is there something i should do to fix that?

 No.8296

whenever someone is using the TOR node to spam it counts towards the specific connections post limit(to prevent flooding). So it's likely you're trying to make one post after someone tried to use it to spam and you hit the same limit.

 No.8298

When I tried visiting this site from Tor it just said that I am not allowed to do that.

You have to use the onion address. Exit nodes are blocked because they are insecure.

no one uses xmpp, and it doesnt have cryptography natively….
not all implementations integrate with omemo and its ass and ugly and annoying, plus again no one uses it
Whats the problem with Signal? also there's p2p fork of Signal… not a great idea but also federated servers take effort so i guess for most people centralized makes sense here, its not optimal but fr what did Signal do to compromise security? they do real e2ee that is supposedly authenticated on each client, and its open source afaik so whats the deal
no matter what your metadata is fucked pretty much
also xmpp is federated too… so its also kinda ass for that

Title gives my conclusion from empirical events I witnessed and inside info. PSP runs on the same circuit, but isn't the backdoor per se, which has been around for much longer.

Just like AMD was able to change the crypto algorithms for the Zen chip they licensed to China, they can change how the CPU behaves at any system, even those already deployed. This can be used to sabotage any program or computation, making BadBIOS (uses radio, not sound) vastly nastier than StuxNet.

American military made a grave mistake by giving access to the morons of the Brazilian military, who are letting knowledge of this spread like a fire (and misusing it for petty profit and inside jobs to justify a police state). Israel, UK and France also have access, but are much more professional.

Knowledge is power, if corporations or other organisations know more about you as you know about them, they have an knowledge advantage over you that lets them politically disenfranchise you. Class societies have a class war going , and the surveillance stuff is them following the doctrine of "know your enemy". Even if you are just a rightist social democrat that wants bourgeois democracy with welfare capitalism, you have to insist on completely removing the state and corporations from personal devices and home networks, or you' won't even be able to have bourgeois democracy.

Even if the proletariat has robust control over the state you would still make personal devices off limits, people store their personal lives in these things and it's almost like violating bodily autonomy if you give powerful organisations access to personal devices. You wouldn't want to be frisked by the police in the offline world even if you have nothing to hide, so it's not ok to do that in the online world.

It's also really stupid for strategical considerations, the NSA or big tech is not securing the access they have to your machines, so even if you are fine with making people corporate serfs without political rights, you would still hand them over to basically moderately tech-able organisations that can buy cyber-break-in tools from the grey market. Basically the backdoors to your computer and communications will become available to your local mafia, eventually, because big organisations leak what ever trick they develop.

For a strong socialist society the reasons are different, people cannot be politically disenfranchised even if you backdoor devices. But it would still compromise your technology and infrastructure. You have no reason to believe that a socialist society would be better at securing "the other end of the backdoor". It makes your society vulnerable to coordination-collapse-attacks. An example of this type of attack was the Soviet block dissolution. The entire economic system relied on the central planning buro for economic coordination and once the neo-liberal coup was able to bPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
