Why is there lots of coronavirus disinfo in /leftypol/? And why aren't jannies so quick on preventing the spread of these kinds of falsehoods?

I don't know who Andrew Wakefield is. My point was that all the mistrust in vaccines was much longer in the making than Covid, there were outbreaks of old diseases we thought were eradicated, because parents started refusing to vaccinate their children like a decade before covid.

I think that if you have to censor science denial you already lost the fight. The enlightenment movement that popularized the scientific method as a tool for knowing what's going on had to fight against the church, and they had no institutional backing that could censor on their behalf, in fact they had to fight against censorship them self. And yet they won against all of this. What ever they had that made them win is what we need to get back. I see this period in time as reality asserting it self. Your ministry of truth even if it deserves that name in earnest is week sauce in comparison. Scientific knowledge became an undeniable, irresistible force that altered how people looked at the world. I want this real enlightenment not just a secular priesthood.

There's like a new youtube "meme" or format where two or more scientists have a public fight over scientific theory, sometimes they make a wager. Maybe something like that is the way to go.


dangerously idealist. (even if there is discussion to be had about scientists losing credibility, where i'd put forward the case that a lot of the time it's intertwined with the way politicians and non-scientific experts like economists have spunked away their credibility)
science didn't beat religious fervor by debating them to death, it won because (1) it actually worked. "god's on my side!" doesn't count for for much when you're taking a sword to a gunfight, and (2) people were compelled into getting vaccinated or otherwise complying with such directives. (even if, by modern standards, the level of compulsion may seem benign. consider, for example, the way that men in WW1 were press-ganged into the trenches before generalized conscription by "mere" social pressure.)
repression and the use of force is always the name of the game. there was never any mystical time where ordinary people were converted to the scientific method (or any other worldview) by reasoned debate. that was always an illusion caused by the fact that for a period, the entry costs to mass publication were so high that official censorship was of limited necessity. (and even then, unofficial, private censorship was rampant.)

there is surely an essay to be written about the rise of antivax nonsense correlating with neoliberalism, a worldview that puts the market above the public to the extent that the freedom of grifters to sell lies and placebos is considered more important than the public's freedom from the plague. if you want your root problem, that's where it lies.


Seriously the report queue is frequently empty.
And simply there is too much content for effective moderation.

Plus, there's been a concentrated attack by fresh IPs spreading misinfo.
Plus we have the retard leninhat among one or two others that also push this shit.

If you think it should be banned you can join the chat congress and voting hall and argue your point anon.

Saw you creating these new fancy boards yet this still doesn't exist??


There's discussion in the congress about creating a media board, actually.

What exactly is going now? There are two websites, does this inducate a new split?

It was always pretty unclear to me what caused this drama. Too much behind the scenes that we the ordinairy board users aren't privy to.

This seems to be becoming more common.




There now seems to be a third site leftychan.org

Has there been another split?


No, the .org jannies just bought that to mess with us. It just redirects to leftypol.org.


Look I don't any of these personalities on the mod board and am just a rank and file anon who usually avoids /meta/ boards.

Whatever the dumb reason one of the boards needs to change its aesthetic a bit because having two suspiciously similar sites makes both of them seem scammy. Move the images around or something on main page.

I'm more attracted to this one now that's you've added /posad/ haha

>torification, which would nullify a big part of the metadata concern.
A small part, IP is not everything. Probably better to use Tor browser to make your fingerprint more uniform rather than a client with its own versioned user-agent and other shit.

But in any case if you want to avoid tracking you need to compartmentalize i.e. fragment and isolate your actions into multiple unlinked identities. At the very least that would mean creating different user accounts for your different interests and using different Tor browser sessions to at least somewhat isolate these accounts from each other.


>oh no not my hekin telephone number!

Literally nothing is going to happen, the government of Israel is not going to kill you for creating a shitposting imageboard, schizos


B-b-but the Hawaiian glowie is going to kill me with her thighs for shitposting!


>>Matrix IDs mapped to Email addresses/phone numbers added to a user’s settings.
Think I fixed this in theory. Do you have any tips for making it secure or should just switch to IRC÷.onion ?


don't panic yet, this isn't really saying much

Bros, I think I broke leftypol, this message only appears when I reply to a post, I can post regular posts without a problem

Is space still around in leftypol to begin with? Can anybody here explain what is this?

Or maybe I was ;) tell your butt buddies at .org to ban every ISP from Mexico hahahaha


>.ogre jannies are so fanny flustered they actually come here to yell at anons.


They are basically impotent little cuckbois who have started banning innocent anons because they have a complex over, I literally have them on perpetual schizophrenia Everytime they see a Leftcom flag

I have already started shitposting with other flags, let's see if they get the same treatment hahahah


ngl we should ban mexicans too. even if they did it for the wrong reasons.


look, its time for me to come clean
I am the original "Mexican nazbol" shitposter, the lore write itself, and it eventually became something completely different

This is spam according to cabalo


Lying in moderation reports is a proud ogre tradition.

To be blunt and to the point: I've witnessed three splits of our community so far the last 8 years and I have detected a certain tendency I would like to reflect upon if that's okay with you guys.

First, and following thereunder, schematic representations:
>back on 8chan
>OldBO starts banning pro-imperialist talking points surrounding Syria
<RESULT: "split board" is created
Analysis of the split (and sorry if this hurts your sentiments, but I'm way past of idgaf):
>main 8ch/leftypol quality of posts improve, we are witnessing way higher % of effort posts and so on, while
on the "split board:"
<idiotic appeals to "board direct democracy" are instated, promises of way looser moderation ensues
<our worst community members of old start inhabiting the place – and I'm talking about post-work, post-left, pro-bookchin, anti-civ, etc. etc. "snowflake" types
<the fucking splitting board gets overrun with "anti-transhumanist" (etc.) 8/pol/ spam in merely days
<the board becomes deserted

Second, the bunkerchan split:

Your incorrect. there was a split on leftypol 8ch. A new board was created called leftpol. The justification for leftpol was to give explicit support for rojava which old BO was not a fan of. Leftpol quickly devolved into a spammed wasteland and the original board continued on unill the end.


That didn't cause an exodus to bunkerchan though.


Actually, the justification for leftpol was a censorship-free leftist discussion board. I know, I went there and I never gave a shit about Rojava.


is that a separate website though?


That's just false. /marx/ was made by a guy called Ismail years before the split ever happened. That board was almost as old as /leftypol/ itself.
Ismail remade it as a forum on his own website after 8chan died.

Can you add an /int/ board?
I would love if /leftypol/ hosted an international board that wasn't infested with alt-right weirdos, one that really focused on fostering international cooperation and learning/sharing each others cultures.

mods should consider this, now that pol.org have heir own site and are pretty close to GETchan's /ref/, a local /int/ board would be a differentiating aspect to engage people


I think it shouldn't really be politics specific


but what if Im not a pedophile


File: 1628964142303.jpg ( 37.43 KB , 539x960 , esta.jpg )

I actually do like this idea ngl


Do this but move the /int/ style threads from /b/ or else it'll be deserted


I am not sure whether it is currently with admin team capabilitied to implement, but here goes:

In order to save server space and kerp the boards cleaber I propose that saged threads be auto-deleted after 5-7 days.

A similar thing could also be useful for threads that have a very small number of replies after a week (like less than 2-3).

Vid unrelated.


Really we should be prioritizing deletions before saging. We shouldn't be saging threads that need to be deleted.



You may be right, but this is meant as way to keep safe threads from crowding out decent but less viewed ones.

>Most of the bee posting was coming from the TOR node.I've banned that on the /meta/ only for a week
:^) you are such a fuckup it's amusing


bee should've been banned much earlier if they were this passive aggresive and psychotic from the get go imho


Literally none of the tor posts are mine though.


If they suggested the /music/ board in the first place, then I do not have a problem with them.
Political nuances are irrelevant when your job us to clean up gore and cp


and clean /pol/yp please.
