Apperantly 4chan has a problem(?) with AI generated threads/posts. How will leftypil prepare to the bots? I'm quite surprised, that there isn't even a captcha here.

Yeah but you gotta fucking verify you're human on cloudflare every 2 minutes.


There is a guy that said he had proofs that there are actual bots doing bot stuff in >>>/siberia/523120


What if… this is only the tip of the iceberg…?


old school internet anonymity is slowly going extinct isn't it?

Will there ever be an alternative video platform that matches its ability to let you regularly put out content to a large audience?
Vimeo comes close but you have to pay to exceed the limits and the audience is definitely more limited.

I can't escape Google no matter what I do. Should I just bite the bullet and integrate into their workspace then?

Just have a dedicated device for it


It's possible to install apps in isolated profiles in GrapheneOS and some other phone OS afaik. Another option might be to install the apps in Android VMs on a laptop.


>>government app necessary for functioning in society
There are mirrors for google play apks and installing malicious apps on android is manageable. Any google service should have a secure, compatible alternative somewhere (see https://microg.org/).
>>uni also uses google shit for everything
Elaborate. I'm interested in how dystopian shit has gotten in your 'stan.

Here's the bill that was proposed. It looks concerning, but that's just from these spooky scary headlines I found from searching it. I'll start to read it now and share my thoughts.


>expand the number of businesses that the US government can force to eavesdrop on Americans without a warrant
they already had this for years in the bush era on the patriot act, warrentless wiretaps were fully legal, and not indirectly forcing businesses to hand over data but actually doing it directly.

I guess this is just a return to form.

With most phones not having a microSD slot or even an audio jack these days you'd think projects like Rockbox would be more popular but it's almost abandoned.

works on my machine


it's because music streaming completely killed dedicated audio players obviously. not only that but phones carry like 1TB ootb that's a lot more than the 256GB we were used to back in the day, so it's completely irrelevant technology. if you have specific audiofile needs and an aversion to spotify, you'd be spending your cash on a plex box and plexamp on your phone.


>phones carry like 1TB ootb
fucking which ones? all the phones with good specs have like 128-256 gigs with absolutely no room for extra storage to force you to rely on streaming and cloud garbage

>an aversion to spotify

i have an aversion to paying for stuff that can be free, thanks


like every flagship lol wdym. even dirt cheap chinese phones have 256gb storage wtf lol, i use a fucking rooted poco as a dedicated media player it was a hundred bucks and that has 256gb, it's too bad that flagships dont have additional sd card storage like that one does, i'll give you that


im not in the "first world" tbf


I just have come across some money and I want to build a new gaming PC, my old pc is starting to show its age. Where do I start? I have a 3000 dollar budget. Looking for a high end gpu, The best cpu and and can carry a blueray player.


3000 is an insane amount lol. I recently upgraded and the most difficult thing to choose was the mobo actually. Huge differences in price and hard to discern for what reason.

Why don't you consult reddit?

I guess first choice to make would be if you are gonna go with Amd or intel and amd or nvidia. Thrn when you figure that out just get whatever the newest flagship is. Then pick mobo that works for the chipset. Whatever the best ssd is for your main drive. Ram highest clock speed. Probably want to go ddr5 but I hear there isn't much of an advantage currently. That's about it. Case doesn't matter just get one you think looks kewl.


>look it up
>top of the line geforce costs 1800 now
Damn. Well splurge on the graphics card more than the proccessor for gaming. Gaming doesn't need a super cpu. Also splurge on the ssd if you want better loading times.


if you want an internal blu ray drive, then you need a compatible SATA connector on the motherboard and a properly sized optical drive bay (5.25", half height) on the case, i think

I don't care for the immature rightoid being banned. The precedent which the FDO "conduct enforcement board" set with their actions is worrying though.

Both sides seem to agree that vaxry acted entirely within the coc on the relevant platforms. Quite frankly he is right in that freedeskslop is playing internet police. They make vaxry accountable for his conduct as hyprland product manager, yet they are disputing his personal privileges as a contributor on the freedesktop gitlab. His resolve not to reply to future email of the kind, is then taken as a clear threat of ignoring future interventions on their platforms. In hindsight their entire justification for violating the conduct of their platforms is based on this uncharitable reading.

Vaxry is a prominent project leader who had it coming. Still i can't help but think they will transition to a more extensive type of "enforcement" in the future. Imagine if they banned all leftypol_vichan contributors on their platforms, because "hateful ideology" or similar contrived shit.


How could they play "internet police"? They can't ban you from sites they don't control.


Depending on how you see this, they either banned him for something he didn't do on any of their platforms or they did so on a flimsy justification likely for the former reason. If they had any further actions they could take for "violating" their coc, they obviously would. For the project leader of a wlroots compositor, being unable to contribute to upstream at all is not to be taken lightly.

Or think about it this way: When the USA imposed sanctions on Venezuela, were they playing world police or just being shitty in general?


Is he a rightoid though? I don't think he is very politically inclined and this drama is what's likely shoving him into political spheres now. The most political thing he wrote afaik was this: https://blog.vaxry.net/articles/2023-inclusiveActivists and it seems to be mostly against idpol nonsense.


In the first email he mentions that Redhat diversity hiring "scandal", Bryan Lunduke can't stop bringing up (see https://lunduke.locals.com/post/5515346/the-ibm-red-hat-leaks-what-weve-learned-so-far and >>23967).

this is something we've always known was going to happen at some point. Now of course the Internet and big sites will still exist(YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter) but it will become like television was, a lot more sanitized. There won't really be any real speakers on those sites, just spectators, most rebel sites will be removed other than the enforced squeaky clean ones and I've made peace with that.

So it seems Youtube is increasing it's pressure against Invidious and third party apps. What do you think, is this the end of adfree Youtube? What will you do?


Invidious isn't particularly threatened by this round but you should still donate.
>Is it over?
It's Youtube. It never began.


it won't happen, at least not by force. that's an outmoded means of social control
you're already living after the internet in the era of the big, centralised tech company. 4chan is a rounding error (not to mention probably a honeypot) and /leftypol/ is even less important than that.
the only major things that're going to change over the coming years is that search will get worse and AI generated gibberish pages will push down the signal-noise ratio when you're looking for actual information.

the fear of the jackbooted facist coming to take your 4chan away is a fundamentally outdated understanding of social control. no "rebel" sites pose an actual threat to the state and most "rebel" content is stuff the state is perfectly content with like people saying the n-word and pornography. even for stuff that the state doesn't like: piracy, cp, leaks, etc, the optimum level of those undesirable sites is not zero: if online piracy were impossible then offline piracy, which is harder to track, would explode. you want it to be inconvenient so people give up and buy the thing, but not so difficult they buy it out of the back of a truck on a microSD card. you want just enough CP that you can keep up a steady process of arresting those involved in creating, distributing, and posessing it. again: much easier when they're using an FBI server than when they're buying polaroids from a truck. even leaks: you want there to be a central place for leaks, even if every so often someone leaks your government's documents, because people will also leak other government's documents. furthermore they can be used for disinfo - "this site is trustworthy, it leaked US-document-X, therefore it must not have an agenda when leaking Iranian-document-Y."

"free to consume in your personal life but impotent when it comes to changing social conditions" is the condition of the average person today. we no longer live in an age where a capitalist regime needs to ban Marx for fear people will believe in him - forget that: now you can securely sell Marx to what is, more often than not, the mere Communist fandom.


Stop thinking in terms of websites. If you want to start some revolutionary / illegal shit, build a brand around yourself using digital signatures. Establish your presence across a basket of onion forums, chans, encrypted pastebins, etc. There's someone on the Ableonion chat who does that. He's a smut peddler, but my point still stands.


>Nothing of value will be lost.
wrong, everything of value will be lost and only the shit i.e.
>YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter
will remain
