Ive been away for a few weeks, anything new or interesting to have happened?


Some faggot from /qa/ just necro-bumped a bunch of ancient threads on the brink of death.


That actually happened after this thread was made

I'd like to point out a specific dutch criminal case from 2010 regarding 4chan, since the judge's decision and reasoning might interest the community. I'll translate it from the official juristicial site of the netherlands: https://uitspraken.rechtspraak.nl/inziendocument?id=ECLI:NL:RBSGR:2010:BM1481

TLDR: anon posts he's gonna shoot up the school on /b/, judge determines /b/ is full of shitposts and there's a disclaimer, anon goes free.

Translated summary:
Not guilty. Suspect has posted on the website www.4chan.org that he would kill several people of the Maerlant College. He has used his neighbour's router and/or encrypted wireless connection to do so. The words used in the post by the suspect can, as determined by the judge, be cause of criminal threat to the lives of students and teachers of the Mearlant College. For a punishable threat, however, it is required the suspect has had a (conditional) intent to do so. The court has judged that with the specific circumstances under which this message is placed it can not be determined that the suspect has wittingly accepted the significant chance that fear of life could originate among students and/or teachers of the Maerlant College. Reason for this being primarily the context of the 4chan-website, including the warning placed thereupon. The testimonies of the suspect about the character of the website and the concerning forum upon which such messages can be placed as a sort of game support that. The court determines the suspect not guilty of the accusation in section 2.

The disclaimer, quoted literally in the court proceedings: "The stories and information posted here are artistic works of fiction and falsehood. Only a fool would take anything posted here as a fact"

Why is this interesting, you ask? This site is already home to calls to gas the jews and to decorate trees. People on this site are expected to understand the nuances of gassing jews, but how are you going to explain them to a judge? How do you back up your claims? On 4/pol/ I've seen one or more people posting with a name à la "All posts by this IP are ironic/satirical", which really shouldn't be necessary, since 4/pol/ users are implicitly expected to understand about shitposting and layered irony.


Speaking of this as a Dutch case, a country outside of the natve server's location, it would be a moot attempt to call back on in the face of trial. Will the satire stance work in a case against a threat? Probably not. Can any of us be persecuted for what we said here? It's possible, but will probably never happen. None of us will ever have to redpill a judge, or any of that. Our free speech here still stands.

Or, maybe not. I'm no lawyer.

This is a question of more Canadian law as apposed to U.S. law. What would be the law about gore and or a video of Mr. Hands?


>Mr. hands
You mean the guy who got fucked to death by a horse? Zoophilia is illegal in Canada, so we'd probably have to take that down.


It appears it depends on the context of the gore. I'll have to look into that or ask legal about it.


Possession of Zooaphilic Pornography is legal in Canada. However, it is illegal to sell or "distrubute" it, so we'd have to take precautions to avoid that.


As a website, aren't we automatically distributors though? We're an open place that anyone can access and download content from, so I'd say that it would be fair to call us "distributors of content"

I don't even know why it would be valid to upload gore stuff to the website anyway. It doesn't really accomplish anything, other than being generally untasteful.


I agree.

I just noticed I have 2 different ID in this thread:

The first reply has ID: a5451 post N.21280
while the rest has ID: de288
I'm the only Vietnamese in that thread.

Not a big problem but I hope our mod fix this soon.

On a former chan, when raided or when something would go completely FUBAR on a board, we would go into emergency mode. This would include raining horse cocks in java script, a flashing background that would cause seizures, and music https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0A13GCXIB-4 replace with this pic obviously.


>Raining horse cocks in javascript
>Flashing background that would cause seizures
>Play music

It seems like this would just give the raiders attention and make posting hard for everyone else. Raids aren't really an issue; we can just ban the raiders and delete their posts. We can do it pretty quickly imo, so raids shouldn't disturb the actual users that much.

Just noticed that when you reply to a post using the pop-up reply box UI, the character counter in the bottom left doesn't count down.


The developers are aware of it and are working on a fix IIRC.

Is there something wrong with the flag system?
I just flew from my college in Colorado my parents' house in Florida, and now both my phone and my laptop have been displaying leaf flags.
I'm not exactly tech-savvy, but is there anything I can do to fix this?

I am sorry Florida not leaf man, but it seems that your IP was once indeed leaf origin and what ever vichan uses to determine where an IP is from hasn't gotten the memo that it is now USA based. We are still working things out.

I don't know how moderation works or how feasible any of this is, just a few uninformed suggestions.

-mods receive report notifications on their phones (could get annoying)
-mods click something once to activate banhammer, click thread/post to immediately remove and ban the poster
-create forbidden posts, so if some huge wall of text is being copy-pasted you can add it to a list of posts that result in an autoban
-shadowbanning, where you're banned but you have no idea because you're the only one that sees your posts. Seems like it would be hard to implement on a chan, and I wouldn't want them stealing our gets, but it's devious as fuck

That's actually a decent idea. Y'all should still be able to post in it, I'll set it to cycle so it doesn't get to fuckhuge (old posts will roll off after 1000)


Can we please move "the comprehensive History of mlpol," "The Complete history of mlpol," "Post ya face when qa was frozen," and the flag thread as well? And maybe another art thread? I want our history to be preserved for all without continual bumps

What if mods just stickied any thread that they deemed genuine as soon as they see it? Or rather gave it some new invisible quality that makes it so it won't 404 in the face of anything but another protected thread. Then if we got raided in the wee hours of the morn by three autists, with forty proxies each, and EVERY staff member happened to be asleep, they still wouldn't be able to do shit besides kill their own threads and maybe one or two threads that were never approved.

So why will I get banned if I post anime on this imageboard? There's no rule that says anime is banned here. Is the staff biased?
