>>364652>it seemed like an obvious security risk
As long as the money keep flowing, the commies and associated employees will keep their fishing expeditions going.
It's okay, anon. I made it all up. I was just making of how autistic I imagined the average /mlpol/ user to be.
What did he say wrong? I don't doubt the autism of the users of this site.
I think the security risk is overblown. It's not like we frequently talk about dangerous and/or illegal stuff here, and the userbase isn't big enough for feds to give a fuck. Autists who live near eachother might get drinks and have some conversations; nothing big. There haven't been any /pol/ meetups that resulted in anything terrible, so idk why it would be for /mlpol/.
I'm probably not going to participate due to my crushing social anxiety, but anyone else who wants to shouldn't be worried.
Are you going to elaborate on your concerns? Image board meetups aren't that uncommon, even for /pol/.
His point is that bad goyim shouldn't meet up.
This discussion had merit 3 years ago. But there's no way someone could be unaware of the security risks at this point.
I for one couldn't care less about some faggots doxing themselves.
You know it's irrelevant if it isn't site-wide, right? It is, lol. I hop between IP's regularly. Not my fault you can't run a script even tho you are so concerned about everyone's security for some reason.
Politics meetups are so obviously glowing that they're not even worth discussing.
However, aren't purely pony-related meetups just fine? mlpol isn't just for a subculture of a subculture, it's also a symbiosis between distinct subcultures. I know of at least one poster here who in all his work is unengaged with politics.
Genuinely curious what the non-glowing posters above this line think.
This is why IDs are useless and only helps IP hoopers.
>ID's are useless because am too old to use the internet
If that belief pleases you...
This site is pretty much inexorably linked to politics. And the smaller user-base only makes you an easier target, not the other way around. It's up to you in the end.
A more obvious target for what? Feds set up honeypots, but what interest do they have targeting 3-4 autists who haven't even done anything substantial?
Not the feds, they are the kinetic branch of zog and can get any shitposter under their jurisdiction any time they want.
The concern are hired commie 3rd parties doing scouting and surveys. There are a lot of them and their funding is accelerating. Consider them as professional snitches tagging the population for future processing.
Antifa types are the only people we would really have to worry about, but I don't think we are much of a target. This place is pretty obscure.
>Consider them as professional snitches tagging the population for future processing.
Schizo shit aside. There are many ways in which getting the dox can fuck you over. Physical violence is just one of them.>>364689
Feds are a bit overblown. But like others have pointed out, there's plenty of faggots who would benefit/want to get poners doxed. It happens on short twitter discussions, not much motivation is required.
Like I said, it's up to you.Also, take this with a grain of salt. But there have been some "scares" that had to be cleared up offsite. Not feds either btw. I still don't even know what it was about, the threads only lasted for a few minutes.
What would the antifa types even probably do?
There's nothing that would happen in an /mlpol/ meetup that wouldn't happen at any other 4chan meetup, and nothing crazy ever actually happens at 4chan meetups.>>364692
People who are concerned for the personal anonymity are right to be concerned, but a person I interested in going to a meetup in the first place would already come to terms with that plausibility.
I don't like all this paranoia; it feels like it's been building up to uncomfortable levels on this site for the past couple years for no real reason.
>>364692>Schizo shit aside.
I can say that many of those snitches come from the academic field of social science. The niggers are more than happy to make a buck while reporting to NGOs.
NGOs who give a fuck could already find us if they wanted.
What are they going to do, Searcy extensively to find that [Anonymous person] has used an image board a few times in the past 6 years? They don't go hunting down every retard on /pol/.
>>364693>People who are concerned for the personal anonymity are right to be concerned, but a person I interested in going to a meetup in the first place would already come to terms with that plausibility.
Pretty much. But you are now acknowledging there is at least SOME risk to it.>for no real reason
I mean, we had the FedEx happening. If the other shooting hadn't occurred shortly after. Who knows what would've happened.
We also had the CP spam and "on-defense of the pedo" style threads.>364694
You are not really helping your case.
Hold up, I'm just kinda drunkenly browsing most of this this conversation. FedEx happening? Shooting?
>>364693>What would the antifa types even probably do?
Take pictures of your face and dox you. That is the threat they pose, but I don't think it's a major threat. Like I said this site is pretty obscure and not everyone who posts here is even natsoc so there is plausible deniability for anons.
Why Yes ANONS We Are All For THE CURRENT THING.
They might dox you on the basis of you having used /mlpol/ at least once in your life.>not everyone who posts here is even natsoc so there is plausible deniability for anons
This is the bigger concern, particularly for artists who have other connections in the pony community. MKkogwheel used to post here frequently, but his New Zealand flag made him stand out and derpibooru assholes started harassing him off-site.
(Also part of why we need to give OPs the option to hide all flags in pony threads, ffs. Weren't we going to implement that years ago?)
I don't think any other anons would have issues though. Visiting an edgy image board isn't exactly a reason for people to target you unless you're already horse famous.
Shit like this is why I'm uncertain as to whether I ever want to see you fucking people again. CP spam, arguments about whether anonymity is a good thing on a literal anonymous imageboard...who the fuck are you people?
Forget it. If this place becomes a CP den and r/The_Donald shillspace, whatever. I'm ally-ooping here.
There are to parties here, one pushing the anons to dox themselves with manipulative ideas, and the second one with common sense concerns. The choice is crystal clear.
Yeah I'm done here.
That's not what he said tho.>>364706<TL:DR>bots and shills were pedoposting and CP spamming.>They've done it before in other sites.>Probably trying to get clothflare to drop them.>Applejack fag shoots up FedEx people.>Unrelated shooting happens, and everyone forgets about the AJ fag.
In short, to claim there's no reason for the "paranoia" is kind of disingenuous.
Some retard posted on facebook about how he wanted to be with his waifu, Applejack, in the afterlife. He later shot up the FedEx facility that he worked at, Randy Stair style. It happened several years ago.
A lot of bronies were probably sweating bullets because it would have given the mainstream a blank check to pathologize and fuck with random horsefuckers because bronies in general are an extremely easy target for normies.
IIRC, it blew over after the next mass shooting.
Anyway, I don't trust anyone that would want to meet racist horsefuckers IRL. This practically has "honeypot" written all over it. Call me paranoid, but don't pretend that my paranoia (common sense, really) isn't 110% justified.
Do you really want to risk ruining your life and potentially your family's lives as well just for the chance to maybe sperg irl with some nerd?
If you don't want to do it, just don't go. Don't discourage other anons from having fun.
If they really want to go, they'll go regardless. There's nothing wrong about voicing some concerns.
Honestly I think the paranoia is more destructive to the community than small probability of being doxxed. Yes there is a risk and some of the paranoia is justified, but I don't think it is very likely.
I'm not going to repeat my reasoning like a broken record. If a few concerns shatter your will to meetup. Filter me and the other Anons. Unless you want to get the mods involved because people are making you feel uncertain about your retarded party.
Certain Anón is pretty damn worried about "paranoia" destroying the site. Such claims are bound to get the mods attention Just saying, you can filter any poster you want.
You yourself have complained about Anons discouraging others to meet up. Again, if your will to go to a retard party is shattered by a few concerns. Filter down.
I wasn't going in the first place. I just think it's really cringe to complain almost endlessly about other Anon's meetup plans, to the point of thread derailment.>>364843>bound to get the mods attention
The mods already know what's going on. No action has been taken. Relax. If you care so much about it, take it to /qa/.
>I just think it's really cringe to complain almost endlessly
Your ID has like eleven posts complaining about paranoia and discouragement.>about other Anon's meetup plans
You aren't even going and you still decided to guard this thread for some reason.>Relax. If you care so much about it, take it to /qa/.
Not at all. Although you may wanna suggest it to anon here (>>364826
) There has been similar complains in other threads. This thread specifically has been mentioned.
OP here, today I met up with a former /k/ and /mlp/ anon a few miles away. We went to an art museum an hour away in his friend's car with 2 other people and made fun of the modern art, made several non-kosher jokes about the joos and headed back before going out to eat at a local place. Anon had put his email on /k/ 2-3 years ago with my town in the post as he was selling a rifle, no regrets so far reaching out they seem like great guys.
Kansas fag. topkek topeka. I will pay for booze ammo and food if you come bother me. I like to camp as well and would be willing to go just about anywhere. general_management on discord or GeneralManagement on steam Twilight is best pony and I am willing to prove any and all challengers wrong
found someone who lives a half hour away, but I'm not making a tumblr and they haven't updated their discord since discord updated their username policy.
looked up his username and found his fimfiction but I forgot my login to that fucking website. fun times.
