I don't know. I've got three layers of thick blankets, long johns and an insulated jacket. They don't help. I got a fulltime and part time job, neither will pay me a red cent until at least next Friday. Even with this work, my wages don't total more than triple of what average rent is here, so I'm not likely to be accepted on my own. I had my car refueled a few days ago by him, so I don't need gas. What I need, nobody here can give me even if they were willing. I need a rental that either costs under $700 or accepts people who make 2k a month or less.

I'm tired of venting because it accomplishes nothing and only worsens my mood. I'm tired of being around other failures because they can't provide anything in the way of help. I'm tired of this belief system I hold because it makes me feel deep shame for the lows I've sunk to. I'm tired of sobriety because it leaves me alone in my car with my thoughts and the cold.

If you are near Fayetteville, NC and willing to risk your anonymity, you could meet me and buy me a drink at Jumpers on S. Reilly. Otherwise, just leave me be. I'll be gone before you know it anyway.

I'd recommend a sleeping bag and candles. Preferably a heating element such as an electric blanket or space heater.
While burning candles in a small confined area is bad if you are going to freeze to death it'll save your life.
Meals are important right now you are the only thing heating up a cold metal box.
Wool works wonders.
Alcohol makes you open up your blood vessels meaing you'll feel warmer, but you're expending more heat.
Also emails have been sent.
Other thing is to ensure the space you are in retains the heat.

Its probably a mix of won't and can't. I mean, for a savvy developer (all other criticisms aside, Pupper IS that) nothing is technically impossible. I mean there might be a way, depending on how many IPs you used and how many post-deletion PWs youve racked up but what you requested would be prohibitively labor intensive and really not serving any purpose other than satisfying you at a down moment.
No offense, but thats really not part of the underlying purpose of the site.
For one, that would remove threads and posts in discussions which would likely fracture and render difficult any later readings of what threads remained. No offense, but 'your feels' do not justify destroying site content.
For two, the only time I can recall staff requestedly removing content is when it accidentally contained doxx or illegal materal; and when I say that, there was an artfag once who requested all his posts/OC be wiped cuz reasons, and the general reception was 'sorry u feel that way but no, lul'. Hope you feel better though

It's alright. No offense taken. I know I've been a dramafag, bordering on sadcow, ever since I started using this site. I guess I felt guilty over the years for providing so little insight or entertainment in exchange for dumping blogposts and drama on people. Not even just here, but Discord, Ponytown, 4mulp, 8mulp...you guys aren't paid enough to be my therapist, so I'll do my best not to burden you with it from now on. Pic related to that though.

Egh. Anyway, I understand I can't just banish the past. It just means that I have to make something good of it or let it fade into obscurity.
>how many IPs you used
Uhhhhh. Let's see. Dad's, grandpa's, mom's, two different phone plans, a broadband plan, at least three dozen separate public wifi sources, my current workplace...all spread out over CA, OR, and NC from 2017 to today. Plus I've phoneposted, laptop-posted, and desktop-posted. So. Yeah. It would be a really convoluted hunt to find every post mentioning homeless life or life in Cali/NC.

Thanks again for responding, Ninjas.

Hello everypony.
I was tempted to make a thread, but it doesn't seem worth it for just this so here goes:

It seems like newfags today either don't know or don't bother to archive things and use proper tech, so here's a quick summary on how to post content and link to external sources:

>News articles
>Webpages
archive.today
Using archives prevents click or ad revenue, as well as tracking, the second is a bigger concern since most people use ad-blockers.
Alternatively, screenshot the page and post the entire article as a picture, or better yet, copy and paste it when possible.

>Youtube videos
https://yewtu.be/watch?v=XXXXXXXXX
Invidious is a front-end that allows you to watch youtube videos wthout the extra bullshit, invidious.io has a list of mirrors which you can pick from.
The advantages are that you aren't being tracked by google since the invidous server grabs and serves the video for you. You can download the videos and it is a better interface in general.

Alternatively, upload videos to rubmle.com or bitchute (bitchute censors some videos as it considers hate speech laws and incitement to hatred, etc.)
You can easily download videos from a multitude of webpages with youtube-dl, a command line utility. Same can be done for pictures with gallery-dl.

The reason for that is not to use the kike's websites. To archive a webpage means to link an anon's IP with the archive website. Think about it, if anon has to post an address in /mlpol/ together with the recently archived one, then there is a trace to follow to dox that anon. TOR is fine for to use a couple of times, but not all the time; VPNs are a joke owned by the enemy. So, posting the screenshot is the safest and cleanest way, be for the poster anon as for the reader anons.

Homo/tranny belongs to the "homosexuality" topic as it refers to a mental illness or aberration.
LGBT belongs to the "cultural marxism" topic as it refers to degeneracy used for political motives.

Tbh, I was actually about to make a thead about the purpose of /test/, becuse I had a thought that it has the means to function as /mlpol/'s equivalent to /trash/, for garbage that is best left off of the overboard. Things not jus for testing, but also maybe guro/fetish threads (not endorsing, but they should have a place on what i technically a porn site), or flaming.

Is there any reason why the archives aren't searchable like the currently active threads? There's a couple of threads I'd like to find, but I think I might be skipping past them in the archives.

The new store was set up through cafepress and unfortunately they flagged almost all of our designs. It looks like all of the shirt designs were finally nixed, so the "clothing" section is just a dead link now. The Broncos copypasta mug is also kill, sadly. Like most modern online services cafepress's moderation process is a nonsensical black box, and they don't give you any real clarification as to why things are flagged, you just get a vague generalized warning about violating their content policy.

I was more or less expecting this to happen with a couple of our products. The mug with Peyton Manning's forehead on it was made from a (presumably) copyrighted photograph, so that one was predictably flagged. The rest of the deletions, though, made absolutely no sense. For instance, the T-shirt with the vaporwave Aryanne on it was deleted, but the mug with the exact same design was not. Another shirt, that was literally just the word "Milpool" hand-drawn by me in MS-Paint, got taken down for reasons I can't even fathom. Nothing in the store had any swastikas or anything overtly fashy on them, so it can't have had anything to do with that. Ironically the design I was the most worried about getting flagged, the steel liquor flask with the black sun on it, was left alone.

Anyway, tl;dr I could try to fight it out with their "content usage team," but I suspect it wouldn't accomplish much and would probably be more trouble than it's worth. My guess is that this stuff isn't even being looked at by a human, it's probably just some image-recognition algorithm that autoflags things. If I opened a complaint ticket it would probably result in our store being scrutinized by a human, which could lead to it getting deleted entirely.

If you have any specific designs you want to try to put on a shirt, feel free to reply with an image and I can make a store item out of it. Just buy it quickly, though, since there is a high likelihood it will get flagged and deleted.

It's quite possible, but if that were the case I would have expected the black sun flask to have been the first thing to go since it's the most obviously questionable thing in the store. The apparently random flagging suggests an algorithm being triggered. Either way, though, the end result is the same: I can put designs up, but there's no guarantee they'll stay up. Going forward, I think I might just make product announcements on the board somewhere 24 hours before something is added, along with a set time when the design will be live. That way, anyone who wants one can grab it quickly before it gets noticed.

As a low energy user they are wanted. As an Anon of multiple boards it's needed of the current political shitstorms (light but constant sprinkling).
The problem is two fold.
A)'Slowness'
Generating content and shitposting is effort, same with the political threads.
>Facebook memes
Are a mitigated cancer however they also produce useful functions in aggregate political meme sociology.
Also is that politically the situation is spicy. When is just a matter of when the shoe drops. Keeping up on lots of everything to see where, why, how, when, what and who.
B)Factors in the past.
-Why is the Pony Content so slow and low at times?
Retreading ground is fun at times.
Various pony content explored in other places (such as more specialized places for either roleplay, or speed of shitposting or being unbanned sort of)
The show having been done in season two made it to where it lays now. So offical content is kind of checked out. G5 is... personally not my cup of bleach.
Horsshitstorms and Ponydrama is low at this point, still occurring but concerns fags, and the usual things that just happen around the world.
Verity, Marenhiet, booru drama, text storage emergency, ect.
Things are... calmer because they resolved.
For politics there's the goings on, range of replies and shit.
Also people change over time, circumstances change, responsibilities, undertakings, assorted bullshit, or anything really.
The other thing is that particularly off shill behavior is... just doesn't happen as the endless tide of shit.
Where as ponies also are a staple of meme communication.

So the solution is.
New content, or old content, or content, or include a pony everytime you post somewhere. :anon: :anonfilly:

Salutations, faggot-nerds.
Could I hypothetically make an engine powered powered by my cum?
After years of training, I've gotten to where I can cum up to an ounce and a half, possibly even more than two ounces if I'm masturbating to livestock. I can do this about three times a day before getting diminishing returns.
But what could I do with all that cum?
I just washed my cum sock and it felt so wasteful. Surely I could've found a way to harness the chemical energy of my semen. It would be totally green and renewable, ofc.

We do have a system that can be activated with solve a captcha once a day. However, it isn't popular when activated. Each time we have when hit with a bot we are asked why it was in place. It is for more emergency use seeing as it discourages the users. I don't blame them for this as I even have been annoyed when it is on, and I forget to solve it when trying to post.

As for alternative methods, unfortunately there isn't a way we currently have to intercept the posting. A bot can alter a single character in our current filtering system to clear a post as it is meant to stop copypasta spam. The act of the bot posting unique urls each time means we don't have this as an option. We also can't ban image because they also have a pool of images that apply the unique url onto the image, making it unique.

The best option seems to be users reporting posts and we will delete them as they come up, especially since the post rate is relatively low. If you think we should change our policy towards captcha on more often, we can certainly discuss it though.

What if all mew IPs had to solve a captcha once to earn the right to post images?

I don't really mind having to solve captchas, but I can understand why other anons might be annoyed by it.
I know being anti-censorship is one of the site's core tenets, and I'm gonna come across as a whiny faggot, but I don't think I'll come here much more due to the constant pedo threads/foalcon. So disregard me and call me a dumb faggot if you must. I understand.
Thanks for the hard work you guys have put into the site over the years.

Either way. That's a shame man. Just hide and ignore. You're letting them win if you bail out.
