If you really are Hoochie, then you should know by now that very, very few people will accept you as a mod, regardless of how much you "work on being better at your job". Your history as a shitposting tripfag is far too much for most anons, including myself, to handle. This is rather spooky, but I will never allow myself to be beholden to the whims of a tripfag, and I imagine other spooked anons feel the same way.

The fact that you were ever made a mod in the first place, despite the very vocal outcry against it, is another sign of how little the BO cares about this board. I remember being here when the BO asked you to check your email, and everybody flipped the fuck out because they thought you were becoming a mod. As it turns out, they were completely right to be afraid and the fact that the BO never explained their decision and ignored everyone who asked them why the hell they were doing this has only exacerbated the bad feelings between the /leftypol/ moderation and the userbase. The recent Mugabe fiasco is only a speedbump in a long road of problem. I don't generally don't like you, but even I have to admit you were much more tolerable as a tripfag with no power whatsoever. Now you're just a cunt mod like the rest of them.

No.2325401

>>2325069

Also, the fact that you kept up this "charade" is damning enough. You were a tripfag, Hoochie, everybody on /leftypol/ knew your name, and you expect people to tolerate all this backroom dealing and not be upset once they found out? If the users were going to be pissed that you were made a mod, then why make you a mod in the first place? Why the deception? It's entirely avoidable and unnecessary. It makes it look like the BO is deliberately giving people power to piss off the userbase. I'm drunk enough to not shitpost angrily this time, so I'll ask you straight up in good faith:

Why was any of this deception and falsehood necessary in the first place?

You people will bitch about anything. The fact is the BO thought I was a good candidate for moderator because I pay attention to /pol/yp shit posters the most, and that's that.

You don't have the freedom to know every single thing moderators think about, quit bitching about secrecy.

For all you care, I've been banning spam bots and /pol/yps with no interest besides saying "Nigger apes go home!!!" and who can forget "Baboons in zoos! Baboons not on sidewalks! Zoos? Zoos! Baboons in zoos! ZOOOOOS!"

I am up to hear with spam bots and then people bitching about how I do my fucking job, or why I was made a mod. If you give that much of a shit then just go post on /leftpol/. It'd make me less irritated being the quality control you would otherwise bitch at me if I wasn't by saying "BTFO! She's not doing her job!". And if I do my job it's "POWER TRIP! SHE'S POWER TRIPPING! POWER TRIP!"

Just calm down for two seconds and realize this is a board on 8chan and none of this matters.

Absolutely none of this matters. My identity doesn't matter. My posts don't matter. I am just, a mod. I got selected as a mod. And that's what I plan on being. Not to torture you with anything else, perhaps my presence since you can't stand the thought for whatever immature reason.

And about the spam bots I have to constantly reload the recent posts for.

These spam bots, or I hope not people ,do not stop for fucking hours. I don't see many other mods online at the time. So here I am spending hours a day making sure there aren't possibly ten more posts about this dumb bullshit by nipping it in the bud. If it wasn't for me, there would be 30 every thread.

I also loathe when people tell me how to do my job. So you can desist with that as well.

In conclusion, none of this matters, if you want to get mad start stamping your feet. I'm going to try to help this board regardless. Dig a hole to China with your stamped feet. Stamp your feet through Taiwan into orbit past Jupiter you are so upset I'm a mod. It would be a break through for space travel.

And I like being a mod because I like this board.

Merry Christmas one and all

I have an interest and would like to learn more, but I went through that thread and I'm just confused af why people are getting banned and I don't want to get involved myself and start posting when I don't know what the board rules are here.

I agree with all of your points.

Although there are clear physical differences as shown in your picture, there are no other differences at all.

Apart from things like cellular makeup, lung capacity, pronation to diseases and conditions, blood type, brain size/crenulations and the accompanying level of intelligence, proportions of brain regions, visual accuity, height, life expectancy, gestation and infant development rate, total development maxims, skin consistency, bone density, muscle types, skull shape/thickness/features, proportional torso length, hair type, body hair distribution, sweat gland distribution, gait, secondary sexual characteristic, fat distribution/accumulation, dental structure.

Apart from those things, we are all identical clones that just have a surface coat of paint that is very very slightly different.

I paint a 9 character HEX code on my forehead every morning just so I won't think I'm looking at a mirror when I see other people.

Then again, I could be deluding myself in an attempt not to offend some people who fall short in what is classified in civilisation as useful attributes.

Not at all what I argued. My point is that it's not possible to discern geographically distinct races using "current popular definitions". And also to question to what extend the physiological characteristics you listed are relevant to current definitions of "race".

Instead what we see is a gradient, which is a consequence of a species that - outside a few examples (that I already listed) - does not have geographically isolated populations. Yes: Japanese are 'isolated' from Irish and Icelanders, just as the Malagasy are from Patagonians and Sami. But all the territories between them are also populated.

If you don't believe this is relevant, perhaps you should consider actually studying zoology or genetics. And see for yourself how difficult it is to discern distinct populations within a geographically continuous population.

Regardless: why are we even talking about race, rather than genes? "Racial science" is to modern genetics what alchemy is to modern chemistry.

>The response I do request though is why is it that /leftypol/ has such a massive beef with /pol/.

Because most of /pol/ today consists of bootlicking neocohen enablers of the status-quo? People that now unironically cheer for war with NK and Iran, support tax cuts for ultra-rich zionist jews, and spend months claiming Kushner was an honorary aryan and all of Trump's jewish friends, connections, family, campaign members and allies were part of a game of "4D chess". And banning those that disagreed

>Don't any of you faggots remember the good old days when normal discourse, greater disagreements and debates could take place in a controlled and centralized environment?

Outside the occasional moderation drama, the discussion here is actually better than pol. There were a few quality posters on pol before the election and right after the first exodus, but for the most part it was just endless screeching about "kikes" and "duhgenewacy". Later on it became even worse with "kekistanis", "meme-magic", "MAGA-pedes" and the catalog looking like the front-page of the daily mail.

Remaining quality posters were either shunned or banned for not playing along, or just left on their own. And any community initiatives since have been neutered or denounced as honeypots.

The end result is that /pol/ looks more like the worst corners of Stormfront, or youtube/facebook comment sections, than an actual serious platform for political discussion.

Populism attracts the lowest dregs of society, that really seems to hold true for any political movement.

Why don't you just let posters deal with radlib brainrot? Is it really necessary to ban scores of people for making fun of ☭TANKIE☭s, or having spooky opinions?

You may think that you're helping the board in this way, but it doesn't really help convince anyone.

Someone that's lurking is not going to see a reasoned argument. They just see butthurt moderation, think this is some kind of hysterical echo-chamber, and either stop posting or leave the board altogether.

The official Iranian position is that the sanctions over the years have exacerbated economic hardship and inequality, leading to protests.

Besides, even if they did: Why don't you explain (to them) why they're wrong? You don't convince anyone with bans. Which is the whole problem. Only a few people in the thread made an effort to dispel the "USA dindu du nuffin, muh theocratic despotic dictatorship!", and write up a materialist analysis of the situation.

Look at /pol/: They've lost roughly ~50% of their userbase ever since the moderation crackdowns.

Push your own views, don't merely silence the opposition. Drown them out instead.

I could go into another tirade about bans, but I'll just put it this way: This place is turning into an absolute bore. The sort of dynamism that was still here beginning last year - and which was the whole appeal of this place - is being smothered.

The whole having to walk on eggshells for advocating even the most concise materialist anti-imperialist stances - and then still risking a 4 week ban - has a chilling effect that kills discussion. And it's not just these positions either.

I'm sort of beginning to see the same trends that I saw on /pol/: Vivid discussion is replaced with a top-down demand for orthodoxy, and zero-tolerance for deviation. The end result is a regurgitated propaganda outlet that doesn't look much different from reddit or a tabloid.

Before you were incentivized to engage. Someone makes a dumb post? You counter. Now? There's no discussion, no debate. Just another wave of bans. Why would I bother trying to talk to someone that has no ability to talk back?

Even if some are unbanned, it still amounts to dozens of people receiving bans every few days, and it wouldn't surprise me if a lot of them turn their backs on this place entirely.

I'm but one voice out of many. But there comes a point where even I will wonder why I should bother coming back to this place. I don't know exactly what plans BO has for this place; but if the goal is /pol/ 2.0 with slightly different flavor, you're right on track.

You know, at one point this board was #3 and headed to match /pol/. Then the crackdowns happened and since then we've lost hundreds of ISPs. The board is right back where it was exactly one year ago, losing over ~50% of the IPs since September. (This is much more than previous yearly seasonal fluctuations)

I guess I'll just ask outright: How much would it cost, or what would it take to convince you to hand over the board to one of your volunteers?

This was by far one of the best political forums on the internet. A refuge from the cesspool of partisan normalfag politics. And right now you're working very hard at taking the sledgehammer to it.

You've been banning scores of people, for everything ranging from nuanced positions, to making jokes; You've even banned MLs.

At this point I'm not at all convinced you're running this board in good faith. In the Iran thread you banned people supporting the official Iranian position. Which looks less like being trigger happy, and more like trying to find any reason to ban people.

There is another nuclear option; and that involves scraping every post on the board and using bots to repost it on leftpol, or another alternative. I'd seriously prefer not to go there, but I'm totally willing to. You've said it before: You don't even want to run this place. Just consider the offer.

You don't realize it m8. The BO no longer cares about /leftypol/ as an actual discussion forum, his current motives is it turn it into some kind of tankié propaganda outlet and that's why he is actively encouraging people to leave if they don't like. If he didn't care at all about the board one way or another, he wouldn't be coming here and banning people, he's clearly purging people in order to fulfill his ambitions. The reason he's not purging all non-MLs is probably because he knows a dead board isn't useful for anything.

You cannot reason with him, he's only gotten more irrational and destructive. All we can do is migrate to an identical board with one less letter and encourage others to do the same.

Right now I've been banning lots of people in the Iran and DPRK threads.

Iran: America has been trying to destroy this country for decades. If the Iranian government were to collapse for any reason, America would immediately take advantage and bomb the shit out of Iran while sending in their Al Qaeda mercenaries. Millions would die, just like in Iraq and Syria. The rest would be enslaved. Right now, the CIA and Mossad are clearly making another attempt to destabilize and overthrow the Iranian government, and that's not up for debate among any well-informed or reasonable people.

DPRK: After WWII, America killed a million "South Koreans" and three million "North Koreans," in one of history's most intense campaigns of bombing and political cleansing. In the 90s, America starved possibly hundreds of thousands of Koreans to death with sanctions. These attempts at genocide by America are ongoing. Just recently, the American puppet government in the South intercepted ships carrying oil to the DPRK from China. If America were to succeed in fully blockading these oil shipments, it could result in another period of hunger or starvation.

In both cases, the CIA and other American intelligence agencies are proven to be spending millions of dollars on domestic propaganda. They spend all this money on propaganda because it works, and it helps them carry out their plans for genocide. Not only do I not want to help them carry out genocide, I want to help prevent it. As such, I won't let people use this board to advocate or insinuate for the overthrow of either government, particularly when an intense propaganda op is clearly underway.

I don't think this is "anarchists vs socialists" or even "liberals vs" socialists, there are anarchists, liberals, socialists, and even conservatives who are capable of understanding this. This is a matter of total analytic and investigative failure on the "left."

Whiny crypto-Trots will scream and throw a fit because they absolutely can't stand being prevented from spreading their murderous poison on the internet. If you look at >>>/leftpol/ you can see what their contribution to this board really amounts to. The only thing these types accomplish for the "left" is to make it compatible with American mass media, which is to say, make it compatible with propaganda for regime change. As such, if a hundred or even three hundred of these people stop posting on /leftypol/ I see it only as a benefit to the board.

I actually do post links and evidence in threads, but I don't think that's something for us to do with our mod tags on. However, it's not like allowing all of this imperialist propaganda on /leftypol/ will cause a coherent refutation to materialize. To the contrary, it would drown out such a refutation. If the goal is actually to refute propaganda, then there's no point at all in allowing people to replicate it here. People can easily go find stuff to refute in MSM publications.

What exactly is the value of having a board that allows regime change propaganda? If banning people for this kind of trash kills the board, the board shouldn't have existed in the first place. However, I think that /leftypol/ will not die from these bans, and some of the IP losses are exaggerated by the holidays.

Look at >>>/leftpol/, why does that board keep dwindling? /leftypol/ was able to survive for months with only 100-200 IPs. As far as I can tell, the people I keep banning don't even value their own contributions enough to keep posting on a different board. Their contribution is in the negative.

>Yes, we all know our history. But how does this make those regimes beyond reproach?

So why don't you just explain this, instead of merely banning people? Hell, I'm willing to put it in a screencap or a slick infographic if that's necessary. So you can repost it every time the whining about "Muh evil theocracy" comes up.

Is it really that unthinkable that people who've been fed anti-Iranian propaganda all their lives think Iran is some kind of totalitarian 1984-tier hellscape? Half the people on the board haven't even read Marx. And you expect them to be aware of the nuanced intricate details of Iranian culture, politics and recent history?

You want to counter the narrative: You have to convince people. While the MAGA-pedes nextdoor fill the airwaves with Langley propaganda - spamming Twitter and Facebook to their heart's content - you choose to disengage. You won't alter perceptions if you don't counter the narrative. And you don't do that through blanket bans.

>If America were to succeed in fully blockading these oil shipments, it could result in another period of hunger or starvation.

See. THIS is the thing that needs to be pointed out: But who is doing it? We actually had great discussions regarding this until you started purging everyone. Remember: Even if you can't convince someone, there are still people that lurk. And the impressions you create are very important for shaping their narrative.

Countering radlib brainrot isn't as much about convincing posters, as much as the people on the sidelines. When I created the thread about Nazi genocide and slavery of Europeans I wasn't trying to convince resident polyp shitposters (as much as sow doubt), rather the point was to challenge the /pol/ narrative for lurkers not yet on-board. The people that browsed or lurked /pol/ but grew disillusioned with Trump or the moderation, the people that got curious about /leftypol/, or new posters that still think "Nat-Soc" is 'Socialism'.

I appreciate your pragmatic intentions, but looking at the past it's clear this doesn't work. It's an endless game of whack-a-mole. The people you ban will just continue believing or spreading these views, except you will no longer be there to counter it. It for sure has never convinced me, and I've never heard of someone who was convinced that way either.

The solution is to drown it out. Instead of bans and deletions, actively reply to every single dumb post or bait. Always have the last word. Always have an infographic, link dump or screencap ready to BTFO neolib/polyp propaganda.

That's why /pol/ has been so effective: They always have an argument to counter the narrative. They've written books and pdfs on this. They actively encourage arguing in bad faith. And that's why their views are so viral.

This basically seems idealistic to me. If that was the solution, it would have happened already.

This is true, but I think VPN inflation was happening well before now.

Wow, a really stunning rebuttal. I'm just using Trot as a vague term, since I don't need to list all the various kinds of self-proclaimed ideologies of people who get banned. The truth is, many people who are calling themselves leftcoms, anarchists, mlms, socdem, or whatever else would feel right at home in some Trotskyist party when it comes to international issues.

>I'll happily ban any myopic, gullible idiot who argues otherwise.

And this is the problem. You haven't actually convinced anyone by doing that, rather you undermine the counter-narrative by coming off as petty. Which matters even more for people that are lurking.

I completely see from where you're coming from, why you're doing what you do, and why you think it will work. But it's not working. Not in the sense that you're actually convincing people rather than killing activity. And considering you have detractors even amongst your own volunteers, this doesn't spell anything good.

Then there's another problem with trying to force orthodoxy: People here generally don't want a propaganda outlet, they want a discussion platform. If people can't discuss ideas freely - whether they're on one side of the aisle or the other - why should they even bother coming here? /pol/ has been dying a slow death for the same reason. Orthodoxy is boring. And in an age where alternative entertainment is one click away, that means people would rather leave entirely than put up with this shitshow: Even if they otherwise agree with your positions.

I also want to re-iterate that while it's possible to go with the nuclear option (and pull a cloned exit), I really do not want to go there. Even if there is contention about what should- or shouldn't be tolerated, the fact stands that a dead board doesn't convince anyone. And right now the board is in free fall. If leftypol dies, all we'll have left is places like r/socialism, or the DS.A. Unlike polyps - who could just move to ironmarch, 4/pol, or similar sites if they ended up being banned, and continue like nothing happened - if leftypol goes, it pretty much ends.

>This basically seems idealistic to me. If that was the solution, it would have happened already.

/Pol/ is a great example where something like this happened. It wasn't /nat-soc/ central until later on. The lesson is that you can pull this both ways. Hell, you can write a bot to do it for you, if only to post a few infrographics/screencaps whenever a keyword comes up. Censorship doesn't work, not anymore.

But this is always just a matter of what the focus is. /leftypol/ was never a place with absolutely free discussion, it was a place where discussion outside of some vague "left" perspective was mostly banned.

I think this is a major problem, most websites are deliberately designed to get people addicted and behaving in an ADHD manner. Fast-moving, shitpost-oriented imageboards are an extremely unhealthy example of this. However, some imageboards put an emphasis on quality instead.

I don't see a problem with this, and actually I'd like it if someone just went ahead and started cloning /leftypol/ OPs right now. It would get rid of the monopoly /leftypol/ has on those posts, which is one of the many things I really hate about 8ch's halfassed design.

Why bring this up? I've already made it clear that I accept responsibility for losses in the user count. The counterpoint is obviously that 4chan is worse than ever with 50% of it being phoneposters and /r/TheDonald.

kek, what? That's not what Naziposter was talking about, he was referring to the fact that the endless shill hunts of /pol/ are what transformed the site into what it is today, as many of the original quality posters left for good and only faggots were left to replace them. It's deluded trash indeed, to believe that this is some kind of super SPECIAL purity spiral which can only end well because of magic leftism.

Besides, what you are saying would hold water if the bans were in any way designed to curtail this. You are outright encouraging people to make shitty "propaganda", and hypocrisy? Don't make me laugh, you practically run the board on it. "Left wing shitposting and trolling is allowed, but only if I agree with it". Pics related. There are many more cases of this.

>Why bring this up?

Naziposter is clearly talking about purges and purity spirals here.

Are you referring to Trumpshit spread by /pol/? Not only were the democrats increasingly unpopular after Obama's "change" shit, which turned out to be Bush ++, Hillary's campaign seemed to be more of this and completely alienated a great deal of potential voters. Despite this, by grand total of votes, Trump still lost by over two million. Such a fantastic, successful propaganda campaign that was. Don't "B-BUT" me on that, either, if imageboard shitposting is such a successful propaganda vector, how come these faggots absolutely and utterly failed to replicate results anywhere else?

That time has been over for more than a year, and the board was coasting peacefully until the dumb "anti shill" bans were put in place.

How? Are you going to substantiate or just spew "NO U!!!" alongside your newfaggotry? For the first year or so of the board, the BO and mods didn't even clear out /pol/ bait in the interest of open discussion. When they started doing it, shitflinging and infighting amongst socialists was still allowed and encouraged, and right wingers were encouraged to argue and participate as long as it was in good faith. It was not until well after the April Fools hack drama that imperialism bans and such started to be implemented, and it was only in the recent weeks that they started to become aggressively enforced. So going by what I said, the BO has been "anti-everything" for under a quarter of the board's history, and only a mere fraction if we're going by the aggressive approach taken now.

Now you can call it overblown, you can blame western sanctions, you can argue they're whining snowflake liberals, but they're very real concerns that affect millions of people, some of who decide to take it to the streets because of it.

This is a problem with mass politics in general, and modern politics in particular. Ideas or coherent positions no longer matter, it's all about "branding" and supporting your "team". The swastika is just another hollow symbol therein, accompanying hollow words and hollow propaganda.

Many of the early protests were legitimate worker protests. The Iranian government under Rouhani is neoliberal and has been removing many of Ahmadinejad's subsidies (for oil, food, etc.). Similar to Ukraine, I think the original protests (which weren't calling for the overthrow of the government) have been taken over by US-supported "protesters" who do want to overthrow the government, but, if you only saw only the first part or saw a misrepresentation in the media, you could easily be mistaken or misinformed.

I wouldn't say the people supporting it are necessarily reactionary, since if they'd been shown only the first part of the protests they could have easily been misled. I think it deserves dialogue rather than banning.

That was never under dispute. I wasn't even disputing that the current protests demanding the government's overthrow smacked of US (and probably Israeli) interference.

>Calling this neoliberalism is infantile, and only further confirms that "neoliberalism" is the fantasy obsession of Berniecrats and similar simpletons.

"Neoliberalism" is widely used for the particular developments in capitalism since the late 70s/early 80s that proceeded from the prevalence and institutionalization of neoclassical economics. It's a useful term, and it'd odd to see it called a "fantasy obsession." Some people treat neoliberalism in particular as the source of all troubles to deflect attention from capitalism by itself. I was only using it to point to the Rouhani government effecting certain economic liberalization reforms that would be generally classified as "neoliberal."

It's a situation about a book not just because of its comedy, but the events surrounding it. I thought it was worth cycling because somehow they made the publication of a book a legal issue by trying to use a White House lawyer to stop its publishing, give Bannon a cease and desist, even though they're claiming it's blanket "fake" and not giving examples about what in it is fake.

You do make a good point man pollution is definitely a more immediate concern. Especially the offshore drilling, which creates something called “produced water” that contains all kinds of shit like polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, hosts of toxic heavy metals, organic acids and radioactive radium isotopes. That shit ultimately ends up in the fish we eat.

At the same time though man you can’t say climate change isn’t contributing to mass extinction, rising sea temps are fucking with all sorts animals, including coral reefs and the associated schooling fish that rely on them, sharks, whales, ect. They are sensitive to subtle changes. And I mean there’s been studies on trees which show that rising average temps in the winter mess with the trees root system and make them quite unhealthy.

This two problems should be addressed in tandem not seen as separate issues

Retard, you were banned because you wouldn't stop acting like a faggot, not because you're some poor persecuted martyr for free speech. There's no need to be such a fucking drama queen.

So is this a board for classical liberals and nazis now or something?

Maybe if we didn’t have to constantly tiptoe around criticism of reactionary positions this wouldn’t have happened.

Moderation is severely impeded by other users' insistence on /leftypol/ being a shitposting board, and "not banning people for 'wrong' opinions."

I don't think users should be banned for not towing the "party line," but just take that borders thread for example. It's full of quasi-/pol/ bordercucks that really have no business posting here. Supporting the existence of borders should be in the same category as Asserism or national bolshevism or supporting slavery or any other inherently reactionary shit.

IMO Leftypol is

1. A space for leftists to discuss leftism.

2. A free speech board, but that doesn't (or shouldn't) be at the expense of Leftypol as a conversation space.

3. A non-leftist outreach board. Generally speaking, /pol/yps and various other reactionaries are allowed, as long as they're arguing in good faith. They should be able to come, ask questions, and support their arguments, but within very narrow confines specific to the thread, and if they don't like it then they can fuck off back to their containment board.

And there are a lot of posters here that both shit this place up and don't belong here. I don't think they're real leftists or even interested in leftism. I don't think /leftypol/ would be any worse off if they weren't here.

But this board isn't run on how I think it ought to be run. I have to follow the rules just like everyone else, and for now that means we have to share space with brainlet cunts and /pol/cuck spastics.

The following thread is a serious discussion, because there is a joke in the OP does not change the serious nature of the discourse taking place thus the bump lock should be considered for removal. In fact the joke was purposeful in the attempt to have a serious discussion while realizing we are all enjoying the discussion not taking it personally, having some intellectual contest on who knows more theory, in a way I saw it as a way to minimize negative ruts many discussions fall into.

As a community we must realize that we can engage in serious dialog which can arise from the comedic arts as much as philosophy which go hand in hand with the same roots in humanity to bring us all together.

Can we talk for a moment about thinly veiled imperialist trash like >>2399445?

There's been an uptake over the past weeks of "anti-imperialists" openly cheering for a NATO invasion of Syria, or outright advocating genocide.

Including card-carrying Nazbols "ironically" supporting Turkish ultranationalists (Nationalist Movement Party, etc).

I don't understand why this garbage is tolerated, when neocon shills were banned-on-sight whenever they parroted neocon propaganda, or advocated bombing NK or Iran "for the betterment of the people!!!".

Advocating imperialism under the pretext of "eradicating the Turds :DDDD" is still imperialism.

It's a liberal who claims to be a socialist/communist, when it's just a brand to them, and they have no intention to actually advance the communist movement.

They wear all the "communist" regalia and use it's language, but in the end they just want capitalism without "capitalism".
