How much do you wanna bet that this /pol/yp is gonna bitch and moan about having his free speech rights "violated" after he gets banned for acting like a dipshit
vol is an unwashed hippie and got mad we were calling him out
VOL, BO, ANSWER!
there are baboon raids occuring. I've removed what I could, but they could switch IPs any minute. Please be vigilant and report baboon posters(i fucked up my name this is real)

was this really BO?
BO would never be as accepting or reasonable as that. Probably just some LARPer.
ok, but how did I do on a scale from 1 to 10?
not very convincing.
There's an autist spamming
I've been reporting them, so…
Mods seem asleep
>oppression's a-okay if people who don't like america do it
We want our board back.
>On what grounds do you think you get to say Iran is "shitty"?
Banning the communist parties would score rather high on the list for a communist, don't you think?
That amerimutt soldier should be permabanned. He's the same that a few months ago made apologism for the troops in Niger and even justified killing children because "HURR MUH ORDERS" and also the same guy who went on fighting with Korean stache for 100+ posts when he said that Americans soldiers in South Korea don't commit crimes and rapes where fabricated, even linking a "stripes and stars" article.
pick just 1
how about this, mods? >>2444254
i could do it myself but since nobody ever likes the shit i have to say i'll allow myself to ask others to do it for me
write up copypasta, reply with it, bumplock and ban /pol/ack shitposts on identity politics
getting tired of that crap every day with a new thread
we had these discussions enough times already, idpol is tiresome cancer and these faggots need to fuck back off to their shithole
Yeah, that's the sort of thing that should be reported. "Social conservatives" can fuck right off.
So, permission to report "social conservatives" if they're UTTERLY retarded/ pol tier?
>permission to report "social conservatives" if they're UTTERLY retarded/ pol tier?
That's a little redundant, but yeah
jesus fucking christ, what's up with that autist talking about women he stalks in all caps
Can Tor posting be turned back on?
when the hell are we gonna get rid of the character limit ?
I miss shitposting
For fuck's sake, please ban incel posters. They constantly shit up the board and offer nothing to the dialogue.
What's up with all those bumplocked threads? Why bumplock a thread about unequal urban/rural development?
Came to post the same thing, about a quarter of the catalog right now is bumplocked.
Also funny how the daily incel thread is not bumplocked.
If aidspol gets moderated into oblivion, where will pol go to shill? I'd hate to lose my favorite shit can.
>tfw there are no foods
is this what you're looking for
legit feel bad for you plebs. I'll leave now.
Why was post
Deleted in the incel thread? It was a great critique of the misdirected ire against women incels have. Incels actually hate petite bourgeois women.
Why was the incel theead anchored? It was a lively discussion surrounding the dialectics of incels. You guys do that to every incel thread even when it’s good.
If you’re going to do that everytime you need to just admit /leftypol/ is a Weird Twitter/Chapo shop and any deference of incels is forbidden.
But ridiculing them isn’t heh amiright guys, seriously what kinda losers can’t get laid.
Baboon poster is ban avoiding it seems.
What's with all the shitty idpol threads lately?
That retard is spamming every single board
Can this OP be banned for being a redditor?
if only all /pol/ shitposters could be like baboonposter
he's atleast entertaining
… or for being a /pol/yp generally
just report him
incels should get a cyclical
Mods are asleep today, it seems.
They're doing it again with the "Egalitarian" flag dude who is shitting up multiple threads with dishonest bullshit
Requesting a mod to investigate this
>There is a way to verify it actually, a mod or the BO should go to the old Jason vs Muke thread (if it's still up or in the archive) and check if Fatimah and Chaya's IP matches. If yes, we've got a smoking gun, if not (or if the thread isn't anywhere to be found), I'm afraid we'll have to wait out till more clues float up.
Can I get my mod position back?
Just did some cleaning, thanks for the reports.
Why do /pol/acks have so much gay porn saved?
The thread has degenerated too far, it needs to be purged.
spurdoposter's shitposting is getting more and more frequent. Could he be another Aidan/Chaya/Fatimah alternative persona? Besides being divisive he has retarded ideas like fucking children that he's "totally serious" about. He needs a good ban.
Why was the Muke thread which was nothing but a shitposting thread left up but bumplocked once there was a debate of a smearing campaign/conspiracy against Unruhe?
Why did Chaya get a permaban?
Because this is /leftypol/, not /leftyinfowars/
>Why did Chaya get a permaban?
Do you even have to ask?
Well, she was just answering questions…
Besides being a wrecker, it's for their own good to never come back here.
Mods can you permaban this retard?
He never does anything but shitpost and he's probably literally mentally damaged, considering he came from a dysfunctional family.
>He never does anything but shitpost and he's probably literally mentally damaged, considering he came from a dysfunctional family.
Turn your monitor on.
i don't see a need to bumplock it but there's also none for it to exist either
however faggots like you need to fuck off back to /pol/
Is self doxxing a bannable offense? or is saying the word rape bannable? I'm asking because the BO banned me for 4 weeks while I was using a PC from the library. I don't know if he's responded to my appeal.
No, no, and yes.
How sprudo poster is not banned yet?
Can I haz source, pls?
I'd report more if we weren't forced to type out captcha in every single one, specially considering these captcha's aren't very legible, I rarely get it right at first try.
I fucking wish I could 1 click report, 50% of all posters would be reported. Make me a mod pls, I'll clean this mess.
>I'd report more if we weren't forced to type out captcha in every single one
The pedo, race baiter, shitposter, double poster one
Do something about the sprudo poster pls
I could delete instead of anchor and you wouldn't notice. Anchors is the less moderation you want.
ya we got one the fucking morons from /pol/ absolutely destroying communism forever over at the trash board. Can someone take the fuck out?
can someone please un-ban me, BO was being a cunt again yesterday and got me for no reason
Why was my thread deleted when overt anticommunist bait only gets anchored? I have no idea how anyone could possibly construe my statements as an endorsement of imperialism, and be so upset about my opinion that they would erase it completely from public discussion.
I'm not going to insist and if the slightest hint of dissent really does make everyone here uncomfortable, then so be it — I'll leave. I'd just really like to know what could possibly motivate who I assume is a self-described socialist to stifle sincere debate on such an important topic.
>or you could just relax and let the posters discuss what they want to discuss
Holly shit, you got banned for that?
You're absolutely right in your criticism and your post invited debate, it's sad it got deleted.
going from the board log it looks like BO deleted their post history by ip
i doubt he just got banned just for that, but that post was what the ban was attached to
This post was most definitely the reason I was banned. My other threads were unrelated to imperialism: I remember making one asking about the Crusades and another asking questions about internationalism, universalism and humanism but that's it I believe.
>This post was most definitely the reason I was banned.
oh okay well that settles that then
What are the criteria for bumplocking a thread? Because it seems pretty fucking arbitrary
Can a mod explain me why Sprudo poster (you know which one) is still roaming free?
I would still like to be unbanned here
using so many proxies is starting to test my patience
Any day now
>"please unban me"
it's 20.4., /pol/ neets are coming, brace yourself comrades
I was banned for no other reason then BO was just having a bad day, I'll ban evade all I want until I'm allowed back on properly, and with an apology faggot. Till then I'll just keep hopping proxies, and their ain't shit you can do about it.
suck my dick stupid faggot mods, I didn't even make this post and I got banned for it, and now you have denied my appeal. The last post I made was in the theory stack thread, this has nothing to do with me.
pic related since I can't post images from proxy:
BO, dude, could you answer my appeal?
Have you answered my appeal, BO-sama? I'm the one who posted the jewish porky pic.
>I'll keep acting like a faggot to prove that I shouldn't have been banned
>I don't like what your saying
>you going to be banned more if you don't treat this place like my personal hug chamber
Fuck you for starters.
I'm tired of being banned just for posting in threads where BO decides to have a meltdown because they forgot where they placed their hormone supplements. This is beyond patronizing. And I know I'm not the only one who feels this way.
Secondly, this is a moderation feedback thread, we have a right to list our grievances here, so I'm doing just that, now do your fucking job and reply accordingly.
>b-but your being mean
so-fucking-what? I'm tired of trying to have a decent conversation, and becoming the target of some unstable sociopaths power fantasy. Can't you understand my frustration here?
>s-stop b-ban evading, you faggot
Do you think I like having to go through twenty proxies to be here? this is as fucking annoying to me as it is to you. But I actually like this board, and most of the people on it, and as someone profoundly interested in Marx, this is a good place to share ideas and learn. And I'll probably keep this up even if I have nothing to say, just because I know it makes BO's boy clit twitch to think they have anything but complete control over this place.
So whats it gonna be?
>So whats it gonna be?
Cool, so proxies it it!
can I please get an explanation for this at least
let's try uploading an image again
brilliant well it appears that uploading images is fucked. Anyway I was given a monthlong ban for this comment:
>Because some areas haven't surrendered and even in areas that do people are not being compliant with his laws. Gas kills people but leaves infrastructure intact, allowing a gassed neighborhood to be quickly reused or at least ignored without having to send a construction crew to rebuild all the water, power and road lines through it.
>Not that the US is necessarily justified here, since it wasn't clear who specifically led the attack and America won't share satellite imagery that would confirm Syrian involvement (either ground artillery or airborne aircraft launching weapons). ISIS of course just wants to kill people and chemical weapons does that. Regardless of what happened here expect some sort of chemical weapons terrorist attack in the west over the coming years too.
why exactly is this banworthy
If you are looking to not get banned, avoid posting in Syria threads.
BO is a backstabbing shill
This really became r/socialism, didn't it?
greatest movie ever btw
Why was this thread locked, when blatant /pol/ bait runs rampant? Mods ought to set their priorities straight.
Are the mods asleep?
There's un-spoilered porn on the front page (which isn't even anchored) and polyp threads have been running wild the last few days.
Wake up please
So which one of you idiots anchored the thread about one of the most influential people on the planet voicing his support for reactionaries? How is it not relevant to leftist political discussion, while dozens of complete shit tier threads that have absolutely nothing to do with politics that you make stay up indefinitely?
No really. The Kanye hashtag has 1m+ tweets and the Chance hashtag has 800k at the moment. Why are we not allowed to discuss cultural idols endorsing various political ideologies on /leftypol/? Why is that thread locked? It has been reported on by numerous news agencies and the impact of a such a large cultural influence on American politics is absolutely significant. Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian have a larger reach than any single person in America and when they go to defend Kanye and his reactionary endorsements you lock the thread?
You have trash like
"How to we make communism cute" >>2499547
and "This is the perfect Europe. Prove me wrong." >>2499148
as well as a dubtrack thread >>2467408 that has zero content that has been up for weeks and bumped by the same idiot OP who made the thread
All of this is proudly displayed on the catalog without even scrolling down but the Kanye thread gets anchored.
Which idiot vol decided to anchor the thread?
Moderation here is some cancer worse than r/socialism's. At least there they don't seem to be too biased towards muh nigger and muh jews.
> At least there they don't seem to be too biased towards muh nigger and muh jews.
>moderation here is sporadic, inconsistent, and impassioned
almost like it's a forum or something
No, don't mix me up with those liberal(pro free market) scum.
>almost like it's a forum or something
believe it or not, there are communities online with decent moderation
if there was "decent moderation" you faggots would be 24/7 crying because the evil lefties are censoring his free speech.
disparaging anime girl rolling her eyes.jpg
I don't. I just use proxies.
BO is a weirdo tbh. He bans leftwing people, while allowing some right wingers to roam free as long as they don't post something that doesn't offend him. It's weird.
> It's weird.
Yeah, I could see how the way this board has always been run would seem really weird to someone that's just arrived.
Weird and shit, but hey, this is the closest things we have to an actualy leftypol community, so be it. Besides, I imagine saying Assad is the Law would get me banned from leftpol.
And fuck that tranny hypocrite BO.
Hello, I was banned for this post recently. >>2489606
While I don't have a problem with moderation in general, I strongly disagree with this ban. You don't permit such opinions - fine by me, but put it in the rules. There is nothing in the rules to warrant my ban no matter by what stretch you're willing to go:
-post cuckshit, "commies BTFO," or any of that kind of shit
-post any porn depicting underage (including drawings)
-deny the problems of climate change or imperialism
-attempt to cloak reactionary politics in left-wing rhetoric (Strasserism, "Nazbol" Asserism, National "Socialism," Zionism, "Die cis scum"/"Kill all white men" SJW shit)
-voice support for NATO intervention, or explicitly state that you support imperialism in any context
-incite specific acts of terrorism or similar acts (use your head, don't act like a fed)
The post in question:
>I did write that homosexuality should be decriminalized.
>As for the mental illness part, it's simple. Prevalence of buttsex is bad for you. You are unable to create a natural family unit and bear children, extremely unlikely to have monogamous relations in general.
in the thread https://8ch.net/leftypol/res/2489561.html
>As for the mental illness part, it's simple. Prevalence of buttsex is bad for you. You are unable to create a natural family unit and bear children, extremely unlikely to have monogamous relations in general.
<-attempt to cloak reactionary politics in left-wing rhetoric
>attempt to cloak reactionary politics
This has nothing to do with politics: I even stated in the same post that >homosexuality should be decriminalized.
While actual communist policies were stricter than that, and my view would be pretty mainstream in many currents of leftism.
I was arguing that it is de facto a disability: taking away some significant opportunities and quality of life a person would otherwise have. Modern western liberal agenda ignores that completely, and this does noone any favours.
>This has nothing to do with politics
>I even stated in the same post that >homosexuality should be decriminalized.
What part about "cloaking reactionary politics" don't you understand
>I was arguing that it is de facto a disability
The only person disabled here is you.
>What part about "cloaking reactionary politics" don't you understand
My position, in political terms, is that homosexuality should be decriminalized, but should culturally be differentiated as a disadvantageous, flawed trait. I guess that there is a bit of politics in my stance, as it implies no to same-sex marriage and general distinction between same sex and heterosexual couples.
It, however, fits with position of most orthodox Marxist movements. Yours fits neoliberal politics.
>The only person disabled here is you.
I will correct the expression of my opinion to fit the party line. My only problem is to be able to know what the party line actually is.
It seems two of my posts giving feedback on the moderation here were deleted…
Ah, seems all posts by my IP were nuked, not the moderation comments specifically. T-thanks.
Can we ban incel threads? Obvious liberal SJW threads already get anchored, this shit is the same but with more dicks.
Thanks for unbanning me, BO and BVs. I'm glad you realized posting a jewish porkie meme doesn't necessarily make me one a /pol/ipper lol. Anyways, keep at it. Socialism or Barbarism.
Doesn't make any sense.
They can't handle criticism. 4/pol/ moderation is garbage and still manages to be leagues ahead.
why do you post an image giving good reason for the mods doing nothing wrong while saying otherwise?
you really are a tard
That was posted around the time Trump fired missiles at Syria possibly starting a war. Not to mention he's the same retard who put oil CEOs in his cabinet. Hillary would have been a Obama 2.0, which is still better than the orange Wall St. ape.
I love getting banned for two weeks for posting objective facts though, it really inspires me to continue posting here.
Yeah, BVs are trigger happy with their "muuuh liberals"
And with being against posting jewish porkie memes.
Can you dum-dums please avoid deleting entire threads when you ban someone who happens to be an OP? Jesus christ.
There is a /pol/yp raid going on right now.
Why don't you have mods from different time zones?
So are there any mods left at this point? Like can we get some who will do it GMT?
India anon here.
Mod me, BO. I could handle this time zone easily.
Leninhat would have never allowed this to happen
You know it. I only sleep every third day.
Jesus Christ, it's been hours now and they keep sliding the board. But I guess every mod has to be burger or whatever
I just woke up, but I implore you not to make me a mod simply because I’m in the Western Hemisphere. Get Indian anon or literally anyone with a long IP history also I use VPNs which might make modding redundant anyway
The best way to fight imperialism is letting your board be vandalized by children.
>Mods confirmed for all living in the western hemisphere
Not sure how I feel about this
>Get Indian anon
thanks 4 support
Honestly i’m not a fan (i’ve met several unironic Ceaușescu supporters who double my distrust of them by calling themselves NazBol MLs, so my first intro to Russian MLs has become bitter), but some Russo anons would be nice for this spam autism.
Only if they live in the Far East. A Moscow or St.Petersburg anon would not be an improvement over generic Europeans.
Just get neets? Then time zones don't matter.
Also, we are I think 3 Lenin posters, 2 with similar language and (at least superficially) similar theory.
Honestly an Italian Leftcom vol would be bretty gud
Thank you for being so diligent in reporting, guys. Is hard to keep an eye on everything between rounds of BattleTech.
So, did anyone figure out what exactly happend? Apparently /cow/ got raided and they thought it was us.
Can one of you do your damn jobs?
Why are mods such niggers?
I love lazy & incompetent mods!
Why does /pol/ always raid with gay porn? I mean, some people probably enjoy the raid content, but I swear it’s always gay porn.
What's up with this new IP hash history thing? Every /pol/ shitposter I see now has just 1 post and I can't really bring myself to ban them for it.
found this gem on twitter
these are the kinds of freaks who get banned here
Any vols online mind doing your job?
impact font memes seem to be making a sudden and unexpected comeback these last few months
Can we just fucking ban market socialists allready? They consistently spout anti-socialist propaganda and support a system that is essentially capitalism with a human face. Socdems too.
This is Burgerpol now. Jeez BVs, I wish I knew russian so I could take a look at russia's leftypol. At least the russians wouldn't call me a fed for saying something about murdering some burger hehe. Also, fuck the /pol/tard who keeps using my proxies. Fuck him to oblivion.
I'm not a fan of marksocs but if you can't debate them maybe you shouldn't be here.
thanks for dealing with the raid this qiuckly. Well done mods
It's very hypocritical of you morons to ban me for "being a fed" in response to some random faggot's allegations.
Shouldn't act like a fed then
How does one act like a fed?
Anyday now, burgerfag. Anyday…
BO should get more Vols, Jesus fucking Christ
He should replace those burgertarded ones who think someone suggesting the destruction of the USA= being a fed. Fuck.
Make "incel" trigger an auto-ban or something already.
Honestly what's the point of allowing incel threads if you just end up banning anyone who participates in a way you don't like? Might as well delete them on sight if you're going to do what you're doing.
You were probably banned for specifically advocating sexual slavery.
I advocate for monogamy. Monogamy is no more restrictive than preventing people from wheeling the entire contents from the commons on whim. It's rationing. Monogamy is just rationing. If you accept rationing you accept monogamy.
go back to r/incel. women aren't resources
Agreed, but can you tell me how is saying the US should be nuked being a fed?
Why the hell was I banned and my thread deleted for asking questions about the history of Islamist terrorism? What does this have to do with defending Israeli imperialism?
BO faggotry. And the answer to your question was before 80s no. Reagan pretty much caused it tbh.
You're a piece of shit and with any luck one day your posts will be read out loud in a revolutionary tribunal before your summary execution.
Tired of making this plea in every e-celeb thread but can the mods finally either: (a.) make a cyclical e-celeb general and delete all other threads that are made, or preferably, (b.) outright ban e-celeb 'discussion' and delete all threads about it
either one is fine
ah yes, before i forget also can the mods please wage a war of extermination against incel/sexual free market posters etc.
obviously /pol/yp subversion attempts
Anyone else feel it's needed that we ban direct anti-semitism? Obviously Israel is the fucking devil but /pol/ seems to be trying to sneak in under the umbrella of anti-Israeli/anti-specifically-jewish-capitalists recently.
Go back to your containment thread, you degenerate son of a whore.
But yes, I agree with you. Fuck incels.
I just want to get to post my jewish porky jpg without getting banned for 8 weeks because some autistic BV thinks that makes me a poltard.
Don’t feed their narrative. Don’t directly ban it but ban it for racism or some shit.
You should be permabanned for being such a fag.
Anti-semitism is already banned.
Incel threads really should be banned because every last one is just an excuse for faggots to bitch about women and how they won't fuck them.
/leftytrash/ is already the e-celeb general, but it's "voluntary" because your shithead peers want to talk about stupid youtube bullshit all over the place.
So many of you dumb assholes cry about the mean mods and bad ol' BO when they're just enforcing the board's schizophrenic wishes already.
Hijo de puta.
Yes, your mother.
Please add new filter for "sexual market" (& its variations for "free" market and "sex"). Change it to "incel masturbation fantasy" or something like that.
Hey Mods, instead of sitting on your asses doing nothing, how about you look at my reports? Or are you going to dismiss them?
I just woke up, asshole. I'm getting to it.
Thank you. But why is there sometimes a mod that chooses to anchor a bait thread, instead of banning the OP that made it?
Glancing at his post history, the only post before he made his thread was "hams." They might have decided that making a shitty thread wasn't deserving of a ban, or they just forgot after anchoring the thread, but I don't really know.
>being a communist mod
>not being 24/7 awake or at least setting an alarm for every report you get to wake you up
Smh, comrade, Stakhanov is rolling in his grave.
Can we ban the "i want state to give me gf fuck roasties" r9k trash that are probably here for no other reason?
Just look at the sexbot thread, went from good discussion to "lol fuck roasties."
I was just about to write the same thing. We had these kind of threads from time to time, they come and go with the seasons. But a year ago there was actual constructive discussion going on and some empathy and real advice for the lonely fellows. Also it was an actual materialist analysis of the issue.
How about this: no more than 1 thread discussing sex/gender, if another pops up while the former is still going then it's an anchor and a ban to some small period.
>Stakhanov is rolling in his grave.
Even in his death he does his best to mine. Truly greatest comrade!
THEY ARE A FUCKING CANCER ON THIS BOARD
This. If we have a policy of banning people who misrepresent leftist politics with regard to imperialism, then we should also be banning these fucking assholes. If you think we should be enslaving half the fucking population or think socialism is somehow compatible with generalised commodity production then you need to GTFO.
For the love of god, can we please get an "addressing Incel alienation" sticky or something? These Incel threads are unbearable. We NEED a containment thread NOW. Come on mods, do something.
It's obvious that Incels are a direct result of late capitalist alienation. These people are socially isolated, deeply lonely, unable to find anything meaningful in their lives, and misidentify this anxiety as an inability to get laid. So I suggest putting up a stickied thread where we demystify their problems and get them on the road to being minimally functional revolutionaries. That should do it. All Incel wankery outside this thread gets banned.
Ban fucking sprudo poster already. He's the worst shitposter this board has ever seen
lmao. lefty ideology can't exist without pure censorship. you spergs are a literal cancer. go die
Oh the irony when a /pol/cuck calls this place a safespace, where on /pol/ you get permabanned for either calling Trump a Zionist, or criticizing the Mods.
for "false flagging." I'm leaving it be for now because if OP's post history is anything to go by, it's less of a "false flag" and more "devil's advocate." I'm leaving the ticket open to check back on it later, or for other mods to take action if they think it's necessary.
>We NEED a containment thread NOW.
I'm not opposed to this necessarily. We used to have a containment thread for it before, however many server-crashes before it was.
On the other hand, I don't really want a containment thread because it's basically substituting cutting out multiple little tumors for one big permanent tumor. I'd rather just ban it outright. It seems like the plurality of incel threads are just spaces for incels to complain about women with whatever derogatory word they've invented this week instead of any sort of discussion of incel material circumstances or the ideological forces that contributed to forming them, so at the very least they're not really on topic as far as the board is concerned.
I think you are on the right track insofar as despooking incels, but I don't know how I feel about a dedicated containment thread.
/pol9k/ is easier to deal with than r/socialism Plebbitors and tumblr-tier trash the incel threads attract, because they don't pretend to be on our side and are at least aware they are faggots.
>I'd rather have /leftypol/ be filled with right wingers than leftists who may not agree with me on everything
He's playing 4d chess, right goys?
Can I get a fascism flag plz.
Liberals still aren't left-wing.
Spurdoflag is a faggot but he also can trigger crypto-liberals really good.
It's like a slightly funnier and far less retarded hoochie.
I don't know if this is a place to suggest new rules, but I'm really getting tired of low effort shitposts by rightwingers, or unironic nazbols or anprims. I don't think it would be out of line to delete blatant anticommunist posts and ban repeat posters (after a warning) when there is no context given, no attempt at reasoning, not a single worthwhile link and obvious bad faith, even smug anime girls.
These posts derail threads, like the Japanese Communism thread, distract from what little worthwhile conversation actually takes place, and if you ask me, probably turn away half decent "converts" (I hate that term).
In addition, I think threads should be forcibly made to stay on topic. The aforementioned JapCom thread has turned into a pissfight about industrialism and feminism have ruined culture, culture which according to anprim, is more important than exploitation and class struggle. But apparently the nips combat this with anime and videogames… from an anprim.
Call me out if I'm wrong, but I'm just so tired of having to wade through low effort shit to engage in a decent conversation.
>I'm just so tired of having to wade through low effort shit to engage in a decent conversation.
Welcome to imageboards.
Perhaps I'm just tiring of the format. I never was a huge imageboardgoer until I began frequenting /leftypol/, the only other exceptions are 4/tg/ and occasional browsings of /a/. Some of the smaller boards are okay, but so much of it is rightwing virtuesignalling and screeching cuck while posting anime/trap/loli pics whilst crusader-larping. It's only funny for so long. I like the anonymous nature, though I prefer to have thread ID's and no name/tripfagging.
Is it so much to ask for a decent place to talk far left politics without being spammed to oblivion or prone to low effort shitposting? I mean, I'm no beacon of effort posts, but my god, I just want to chat with some fellow lefties who aren't obsessed (one way or the other) with idpol. It keeps us all down.
>Is there even a point in appealing fascist bans?
Not really. Try not being a concern trolling fascist.
why'd u lock the book thread >>2300211
I don't know why it was locked or by whom, but it should be unlocked now.
>Call me out if I'm wrong, but I'm just so tired of having to wade through low effort shit to engage in a decent conversation.
I don't disagree, and I think that by and large the decline in quality conversation on /leftypol/ has been its largest impediment to growth, or really just being an enjoyable place to spend time.
> I think threads should be forcibly made to stay on topic
To a certain extent, I agree on this point, too. This is a forum for political discussion, and attempts at derailment should be discouraged, whether it's an intentional act or just some rightcuck being a shithead.
But at the same time, threads tend to have a life of their own, and conversations go where they may. I don't think /leftypol/ generally needs to be kept on topic, and I don't think we need the mods to police every thread to keep them on track, but I do think that off topic and disruptive posts should be reported.
There's nothing inherent to the imageboard format that entails shitposting. Shitposting is a result of shit posters, and in my opinion really shouldn't be tolerated in the slightest. It adds nothing to the board, and has the net result of just making whatever board less interesting, cluttered, and unenjoyable to be. Low effort shitposters drive away creative posters and discourage the sort of effortposting that made /leftypol/ so interesting to begin with.
The acceptance and normalization of shitposting as "imageboard culture" is bullshit spouted by retards who have no place being on imageboards to begin with.
>the decline in quality conversation on /leftypol/ has been its largest impediment to growth
or maybe it was the fact that BO called 90% of the userbase morons and banned dozens of people.
are you new?
>are you new?
No, in fact I've been here almost since the beginning, and I think you're mistaken with that liberal thinking, as though the state of /leftypol/ is existing in a vacuum and is attributable entirely to a single individual.
I think there are numerous factors at play and that laying the state of the board entirely at BO's feet is not a well thought out or considered position.
I hope you can tell, but >>2522791 wasn't me, the anon you first replied to. I don't exactly mean that a conversation should be forced to stay on the topic the OP presented, but yeah, when there's an obvious attempt at reshaping the conversation to something totally unrelated, or shitposting is building up like fat clogging arteries, it should be dealt with.
>I hope you can tell
Yeah, no sweat.
> I don't exactly mean that a conversation should be forced to stay on the topic the OP presented
I kind of figured. I think threads, especially interesting threads, being forced off topic or derailed as arguments or shitposting spring up is a common complaint. I can't remember the last time I saw a report for derailing a thread.
This is somewhat related to another facet of how /leftypol/ is run that I think most posters here really don't get. I can't speak for every other mod, but I try to moderate based on 1) what guidelines the BO has given me (which so far have begun and ended with "clean up trash and /pol/," 2) what other mods are banning for and how, 3) what posters report, and 4) what has been banned on /leftypol/ in the past. These aren't comprehensive or in any particular order but are considered to various degrees depending on the circumstances.
Generally thought #3 is what I tend to pay the most attention to for one reason or another. I try to keep in mind that I'm a moderator serving a community and not a regent policing his demesne. Something getting a lot of reports doesn't necessarily mean the post in question will be acted upon, but if it seems like a lot of people think that something needs to be done about this or that, or a particular poster for instance, then I will try and at least keep an eye out for whatever the problem seems to be, and how it effects the forum over all.
Thread derailing isn't a report that I see very often, if at all. I obviously don't see every report, so that isn't to say that it doesn't happen, only that it isn't a complaint that I can recall the last time I saw it.
Contrariwise, if something isn't getting any complaints at all and seems to be generating a lot of participation or activity, even if I don't personally like it, unless it's blatantly against the rules, I try not to just yank it down. This isn't really too frequent lately, though. /pol/cucks are kind of one-meme ponies.
I really do appreciate you articulating your concerns about the board though, and what you want to see done regarding it. Some people seem to enjoy imagining that this board is run entirely by moderator fiat, as if none of us are using the board or reading the ideas and arguments people post on /leftypol/ in general. And of course, it's nice to not be fucking screamed at.
I'll keep an eye out for thread derailments and disruptive posts, but more important would probably be convincing your fellow posters to take a more active role in reporting what they perceive to be disruptive posts.
I've never seen someone sperg out this much over being banned.
Thanks for replying. I hope we can get some good posting etiquette to catch on in the near future.
And maybe this butthurt "Janny Nanny" poster will tire himself out soon and can take his nap, he's getting moody.
Uh, ok. Why are you so mad? Why put so much effort into this? Why don't you just rub one out instead of posting videos of it?
It happens pretty frequently here for some reason.
In fact /leftpol/ is a forum full entirely of people that are STILL sperging out over getting banned.
Looks like the autistic spammer is back. Imagine being THIS upset over being banned.
BOARD VOLUNTEER YOU CUCK, COME RIGHT THE FUCK HERWE TO BAN THIS FAGGOT
Bahahaha this would actually be funny if it wasn't spammed hundreds of times.
If I was still a mod the guy posting the Peterson gif will be banished by now
>/pol/yp spamming is into trannies and cartoon porn
IMAGINE MY SHOCK
nothing is impossible with a stakhanovite ethos
Are you actually 16?
Autistic spam is the reason i’ve been avoiding the naked lately.
HEY, DUDE, DO SOMETHING
>western babby still mad he got called out for being an imperialist
You seriously have mental issues. Maybe you deserved the ban.
You’re an annoying cunt dude. quit being a cunt.
All things in moderation hahaha please kill me
what is a hot pocket?
NEET food. Never had any but it looks fucking gross.
It's actually pretty okay. Real pizza is better.
hot pockets is…
what the fuck are you yanks doing.
Please send help.
Whoa now, let's get one thing perfectly clear. No true Yank would ever eat a hotpocket
Sorry for the /pol/shit. I'm cleaning up what I see now.
Hotpockets, we really need to talk about incel threads. There's like 5 in the catalog right now.
It's CLEAR AS DAY it is some sort of forced /pol/ psyop that aims to btfo commies by applying pseudo-marxist logic to the "incel problem". Swedish Socdem and the "libs" incel poster are virulent shitposters who ruin every conversation vaguely related to gender.
Something needs to be done. Either make a containment sticky or just ban incel idpol altogether. It's dragging the entire board down.
Yeah, it's fucked. I deleted a swathe of /pol/ shit earlier in the evening. If they want to complain about how no one will fuck them then they should go
back to /leftpol/ make their own /polcel/ board or some shit.
hey guys there's another raid of /pol/ spergs trying to troll us awesome style
pls ban thx
>All clear now.
The ride never ends.
You're unbanned, but this is the kind of thing I mean when I tell you not to say reactionary shit and expect people to know you're being "ironic" when you have two posts in your history, and one of them is asking if Hillary Clinton is the Second Coming. It's the same crap class cucks from /pol/ or wandering libshits come here to say, so you shouldn't be surprised when you get banned for it too.
Making a joke takes more than just saying classcuck lines verbatim, fer crying out loud.
Just like that time one of you trannies had me banned for posting a jewish porky jpg lol
As far as I know, the /leftypol/ mod team is actually all cis white men.
/pol/tards need to find better ammunition than "muh tranny BO/volunteers"
I imagine, but I find it funny so now u guys r trannies. period.
Literally who would come to leftypol and unironically call Hillary the second coming of christ.
If you can't tell obvious irony from sincerity then maybe you shouldn't be moderating a chan.
>I can't imagine a thing happening, therefore it doesn't happen
Sure showed me, Macromind.
why is /leftypol/ so slow lately? bleeding users? bye-bye, baboons.
I can imagine it happening, but I doubt it happens enough to necessitate instaban from autistic mods.
And fuck, if we actually had someone here who thought Hillary was the second coming of Christ I'd want to pick that brain a bit, not ban them.
I really hope we get atleast one mod who's either
>a burger who always stays up late
>a south american with a normal schedule
>a euro who's always up early
to fill the gap between burger and euro mods because that's when we get flooded by literal shit
Image posting, hence thread creation, seems to be off, giving the following error message: "Cannot extract file/s:"
Still an issue. Maybe mods create a sticky, warning the users that image posting, hence thread creation is off, otherwise posting works?
Testing if webm/pdf posting works or not.
So, yeah, correction: only image posting is off.
Duh. Now it's back. nvm
This is some next level shit. Should be in the OC thread tho.
Can we un-anchor the men's issue thread. I think approaching these problems as labor issues is important, and critical to show proletarian men that the left isn't spooked by liberal feminism.
And it will make anarchkiddies mad
>feminism is bad but men's rights are good
Feminism is bad because it's liberal, and their patriarchy theory is literally a /pol/ tier conspiracy. Not because they address women's issues.
>My habitual online abuse is so edgy
>Being this 14
Liberal feminism is liberal. There is working class (material) feminism as well. And that's the way to go, not joining in in the polarization between men and women that men's right is (and liberal feminism goes there also). There is a healthy but forgotten path in between, comrade.
Check out my man Cockshott touching the subject in page 25 (of the pdf), it's a easy read http://ricardo.ecn.wfu.edu/~cottrell/socialism_book/new_socialism.pdf
With a few exceptions, we need to do away with generals and cyclical threads. They're a major contributing factor in the decline in /leftypol/'s quality as a board, because we essentially have several different mini forums that don't interact with each other at all. They don't produce anything new or interesting and are just circlejerk toilets.
If you want to know why the intellectual diversity on the board has tanked, it's because of that. Ideas and threads don't have to stand on their own merits, and in perpetually self-contained shit like that the majority opinion dominates to the exclusion of everything else. If you're going to have generals/cyclicals they should be temporary and purpose made rather than the eternal shuffling zombies that they currently are.
If you disagree with this you are wrong.
Any of you fuckers awake? Don't pretend you are not NEET.

Why was the thread by the former Trump supporter anchored so quickly? Poster didn't seem to be arguing in bad faith despite being a liberal and seemed to at least want to have some conversation, there was definitely potential for dialogue there, perhaps exposing the poster to new ideas.
does this mean no more hoochie?
Hey BO, as much as leftypol has developed its own unique board culture that I find kinda comfy and would like to stay, I think I should give you the heads up, that given the liberation of /pol/ removes the raison d'être for /leftypol/'s existence… You can actually nuke /leftypol/ like you've wanted to with a clean conscience
I'd really rather you didn't though
India anon here, again. Offering my help to take up the torch for non-burger hours.
I suggested this as well, but given BO's distrust of the site admins I don't find it likely to actually happen. Regardless people from here are probably gonna gradually go over there and shitpost or effortpost from time to time

Dude, I am not sure what has triggered you, but if you are running ubuntu while using VPN you paid for with your credit card, I have bad news for you. Why ban and delete me? I was bumping thread and provoking people enough for someone to post list of soft which is pretty secure, and I could have added more stuff. Don't be ridiculous, comrade. I don't have that much secure IPs to post here with.

What is the best tasting Hot pocket?
when the revolution happens will the machines only make the best tasting hot pockets or will we get options?
will the best tasting hot pocket be based on majority vote?
will those that disagree with what the best tasting hot pocket be placed in the gulag?
notice to just leave for like an hour until the "raiders" have had their fun
Is that video of the leftypol BO sucking /tv/'s dick real? Is that really him/her/it? If so, story behind it?
It's not BO lmao, how retarded can you be
BO is a dude
Quick question how do you make spoiler text and red text?
spoiler is two asterisks on both sides
red text is two equals signs on both sides
Spoiler is two stars * before & after the text you want to spoil.
Red text is two equal signs = before & after the text you want to red text.
Find "Options" in the top right corner(on computer, not sure on mobile). Then click "customize formatting". All of the text format options are there.
There's also the board /test/ where you can test out 8ch functions.
I tried to post this earlier but 8ch was glitching
Is the thread creation captcha broken for anyone else?
For the love of God, can we ban "change my mind" threads, or at least consolidate it into one "debate thread" or something? There's so many of them and they are all exactly the same, and most of them are in bad faith to begin with. There's no fucking reason to pander to these people when the reading list is right there
First, spoiler your porn. Second, that's not BO; that's a /pol/ meme. Lastly, ask yourself why /pol/ is so obsessed with traps & big black cocks. It's pretty funny, tbh.
Did something bad happen for /pol/ or what? Cause they keep shitting up the board today for some reason.
Their board was made public cause their BO was a total nutcase. /pol/acks usually come here to spam shit to vent cause their board is being a dumpster fire as usual.
You say that as if "private" media is less biased or is anymore truthful.
> can we ban "change my mind" threads,
Somewhat agree. No one that has ever said "change my mind" has ever been interested in having their mind changed.
I think I cleaned it all up.
>why the fuck would you ban me for this thing you ostensibly support
Do you seriously need to be drawn a map, you fucking retard?
Why did you purge the petite lolberg in >>2547745

Hey Mods, get off your asses & do something about these bored shitposters.
Just ignore them.
Also, we need a parecon flag

thank you based mods
Why do you keep deleting threads where NutSacs get completely BTFO'd?
You do realize lurkers check those right?
/pol/yp spill in aisle 3, please clean and decontaminate the area.
Could you please go through the giant thread about that Indonesian guy who was beaten to within an inch of his life and ban all of the reactionaries there? At this point there are just too many fascists and crypto-fascists to report. I know I myself don't have the greatest track record in the world, but I know shit when I see it.
Everyday I think to myself I'm not gonna hand out too many bans cause we could use some increase in numbers but everyday there's godawful shitposters who deserve the boot.
calm down its not like someone supported R.ojava
Create a Burger Containment Thread again. I am getting sick of burgers and their internal burger politics shitting up the board.
>Muh white people
>Muh burger antifa
No, retard, you weren't banned for criticizing Chapo. You were banned because every entry in your post history was a shit post.
You know who you are.
This embarrasses the entire board more than it embarrasses you. Even if you consider my opinions stupid you have the ability to just come out and say it's stupid.
At any rate, not even bothering to fill in a reason for a permaban is beyond pathetic and sloppy moderation. This is literally /pol/ tier.
as far as I can tell /leftypol/ isn't full of brapposting, so good job on that point
note: there is a difference between posting garbage like brap memes and being an idiot

Why have threads like this which are utter trash, borderline spam if not actual spam, anchored instead of just deleted lately?
Probably because we've got a bunch of new janitors erring on the side of caution.
How is it not politics to discuss sexual orientations with scientific literature?
There's a really gross nsfw ad with a nude loli girl, I've been getting it non stop and its really annoying.
its a "otonajp" ad
Fucking use adblock you retards. And umatrix.
They're getting deleted, sometimes it takes a while to figure out what's a shitty post and what's outright spam. The past 48 hours we've been hit with a wave of shit.
Not even a board owner can control that. The board owner has to request that the site admin not place NSFW ads on their board.
this somewhat, although I'm removing the fucking pedo threads outright, I don't know why we're constantly getting them today
it was natural and common for people to have incest. that doesn't make it good or healthy, or something that we want to have moving forward
don't bother responding, he's been spamming this bullshit all day
just report it if you see him post it
wakey wakey, pedoshits at it again
ah fuck, I passed out cause I'm a bit sick rn
I'm on it
fellow (new) vols, try to refrain from deleting posts by /pol/tards, keep it to anchoring and banning mostly
/pol/tards making an ass out of themselves in public and getting debunked can be useful to strengthen /leftypol/
I assume it was a misunderstanding?
**Just to be clear, I support a united Syria, but that's because it would be in a lot better position to resist imperialism than an "autonomous" R*java. Not because I particularly care about liberal spooks like "national sovereignty".
Which by the way, is exactly the sort of crypto-nationalism underlying the push for R*javan "autonomy"**
>Spoiler tags don't work on multiple lines
>tfw BO recruits new board vols & they're still lazy
Your board sucks. Too much over-moderation. You bumplock everything. At least /pol/ allows leftists to debate them. 4chan/pol/ is way too fast though and bumplocks at 300. Now that 8chan /pol/ is global, is there even a purpose to /leftypol/ anymore?
BO, you're a man who sucks cock. You will never be a woman. Go fuck yourself.
Nice edge comrade.
we bumplock your threads because you constantly argue in bad faith and just spew a torrent of bullshit and pretend you're being oppressed
Moood summer fags are still uneducated
>we bumplock your threads because you constantly argue in bad faith and just spew a torrent of bullshit and pretend you're being oppressed
I don't argue in bad faith. Even when I post anti-/pol/ related threads they get bumplocked. rofl. What the fuck. I antagonize /pol/ all day with my opposing views and never get banned unless I enter /b/ territory (and /b/ and /bant/ are so desensitized that you can't get under their skin so it's no fun), post blacked memes. One time I got myself a ban because I triggered them with my words so deeply. If anything getting banned from there is like a trophy. Here they bumplock and ban you without you even needing to try. You are little snowflakes who want an echo chamber.
When a /pol/ack talks shit about me being a nigger lover, I say "say it to my face soiboi in RL. You don't have the balls. Because you know you'd get video recorded by someone in public, doxxed and fired." You can shit talk with /pol/ and not get banned. But you leftists are such sensitive snowflakes. I argue in much worse faith on /pol/ than /leftypol/ because I know that you pussies can't take the bants. You need a safe space for everything. You do not represent the working class, get a bath and get a job. We need to purge the SJWs from the left. Jim Profit, the left-wing Alex Jones, is 100% right about the modern left. Including /leftypol/ and Chapo Trap House.
The fact that /leftypol/ is even in the top 6 in 8chan leads me to believe that you are going to reddit, especially r/chapotraphouse to recruit. I first shitposted on /leftypol/ when they just hit the top 10. You guys are not from chan culture. You are from reddit. You can't handle the bants.
r/The_Donald is a watered down version of /pol/
>You can't handle the bants.
You couldn't be more reddit if you tried.
>summerfags spamming the board again
I think I got the bulk of them, I was a bit preoccupied though, sorry
to be fair that first guy is pretty cute and i'm straight.
How come supporting American Imperialism is a ban-able offense but posting with the Nazi flag isn't?
the flag makes it easier to figure out who to ban
oh Lord, this is in deed a modest post. Frankly, old chap, I expected some refined interracial porn, or pictures of random yanks being hit in the face. But this is quite gentlemanly of you. Well done!
Let's try this one more time
you have my posting history
why the fuck did you ban me for that post? the one to do with Turkey.
Jim Profit keeps shilling for himself in every thread. It's getting quite annoying.
You had time to deny the appeal
but not time to specify the reason for my banishment
what's wrong with you, dude?
>taking getting banned from a forum this personally
This is a pro communism image board, baldy.
This shit is serious business. None of us should have to deal with BO's schizophrenic behaviour
and I'm not taking it personally, I'm honestly just lamenting how this moron does this stuff but doesn't go out of his way to justify it. It's bad for the community. It's counter productive.
And I hope those anti Assad faggots stop using my proxies.
>taking getting banned from a forum this personally
I haven't been banned because of the anti-anti-imp board moderation but I agree with him.
Arbitrary banning of people the moderators disagree with and the rampant threadlocking is undermining the quality of the board and driving people away. While we have been recovering our numbers since the /leftpol/ split, the culture ever since has stagnated. see >>2556810
So which of the anchored threads shouldn't be
is it the furry thread
or the haiti thread
or what about the thread from the spanish retard
is it the nine millionth sargon thread that you're talking about?
help a nigga out here
>So which of the anchored threads shouldn't be
It's not the specificity of which threads we should anchor but the prevalence of the practice. We do it too much. Bumplocking won't stop shitposting, this is a fucking imageboard; the point for the practice is to discourage certain kinds of threads.
But the implication of improving board quality is used to justify the deletion and anchoring of threads that simply disagree with the BO's line. If it really about ideological purity, why didn't the BO do anything when the site became consumed with open and flagrant Bernie and Corbyn supporters? How about when the site became dominated by Anarchist-types? If /leftypol/ is to have a line, the line should be clarified and consistently implemented, so as the understand what is within the confines of orthodoxy and what isn't.
Now, there's nothing wrong with having a line, but /leftypol/ isn't a political party. It's an online forum for discussion for and from the Left. Disagreement is not just necessary, it's essential to this kind of platform, both because of the fact that this imageboard is for open discussion from the Left, and because of the nature of the imageboard format.
The discouraging of dissent is really just creating a morass of low quality threads. Blatant shitposting is fine insofar as the shitposting is geared towards a proper political direction, but the erosion of shitposting culture in general undermines board quality. Shitposting is an essential part of imageboard culture. Without disruption, imageboard cultures will decay into boring average slosh, losing its dynamism. Just look at what happens to generals threads over time. The shitty threads like the ones you mentioned are symptomatic of a decaying culture, and simply bumplocking all of them that have a whiff of shittyness will just make it worse.
Yo I haven't been here for 7 months has the BO gotten more autistic or less autistic since I left in January
He's a clown who refuses to take responsibility for his actions, and ends up fucking with the community for no reason.
Did I really got banned over this mild insignificant shitpost?
Sounds about right, imperialist
How dare you wrongthink on my board!!!
Silencing discussion is inherently anti-socialist in nature.
Moderation is a hierarchy.
Shut your fucking retard mouth, dipshit.
Act like a /pol/yp, get banned. Appeal it or fuck off.
>Act like a /pol/yp, get banned
So saying that there is more aids in africa than Europe after a guy said that black women are the most aids infected group in the world is /pol/yp reasoning?
Do we really need five Elon Musk threads? Wouldn't one dedicated muskshit thread be sufficient?
not related to moderation, but I wanted you all to see a case study of retardation
here's a series of OPs by the same person
cherry on top: the unban appeal
this guy was also unable to quote posts in the thread and posted a breadline of tsarist russia to shit on communism
Can we make supporting or agreeing with The FBI or any western intelligence agency in any shape or form an immediate irrevocable ban for reasons that shouldn't even have to be explained on a leftist board.
It would certainly cut down on all this Trump-Putin-Russian Election Hacking-Cold War 2.0 threads that go up regularly.
BO's the same, if not worse.
Do yourself a favour and don't come back.
>this guy was also unable to quote posts in the thread and posted a breadline of tsarist russia to shit on communism
Christ, where do these people come from?
Can the hotpockets who has been arbitrarily banning people on almost every thread that could be remotely contentious please stop.
what are you babbling about idiot
Are you a fucking moron? Do you not see how many people are being publicly banned? I mean, fuck the Zionist thread alone had 15 people banned. This is reddit-tier level moderation.
Fuck you, retard. They deserved it and you can go back to whatever pseudo left shithole you came from you stupid bastard.
thanks for the unban again desu
wish you hadn't nuked all my posts though
I had some solid conversations about free will and space travel that are now rip forever
This happened the last two times I was banned. All my posts got nuked, including ones telling depressed anons in /leftytrash/ not to kill themselves.
if you are going to ban me again in the future, please exercise restraint with the delete all posts function.
How in the fuck did I deserve it?
BO is some schizoid asshole. It seems can't compliment or highlight anything positive in regards to a middle eastern country that is not Syria without being banned, because otherwise, I'm still waiting for this moron to justify himself.
I remember seeing a few "do my homework for me" threads over the months, about school presentations usually. This little debacle with the plagiarized essay demonstrates that idiots must be saved from themselves. I propose that these threads be locked from now on, with the OP directed to historical works in the book sticky.
We should allow all criticism, even criticism from the right. Freedom of criticism is essential for the Left. In What is To Be Done?, Lenin complains about how "freedom of criticism" is used - it is okay if you criticize me not when I criticize you. To criticize them, which is to say the opportunists, is to engage in "dogmatism". What is necessary isn't a rejection of criticism but an embrace of criticism, for even if criticism misses the mark, it may have been aimed at a legitimate problem, and specifically the refutation of such a false shot can help clarify both the target and how to aim towards it, to help clarify what really is at stake and how to resolve the issue. But that clarification can only arise from a consistent Marxist position, but when has /leftypol/ ever had a consistent Marxism? I remember when this board was completely consumed by Bernie supporters, and I remember that when the board was created the dominant tendency was Anarchism. What did the BO do then? Nothing. To ensure a consistent Left, one first needs to be consistently Left.
In One Step Forward, Lenin outright states the necessity of maintaining internal Party democracy, even advocating for opportunists to have a platform within the Party. Of course, Lenin would later advocate for splitting from the Second Internationale and even outright banned Party factioning. This shows that the use of repressive measures are not a principle-in-itself, but entirely depends on circumstances and practicality. It doesn't matter whether they "deserved it" or not; we are Communists, not moralists. What matters is that people have been being banned left and right and it's undermining board quality.
In Marxism and Religion, Lenin states that the Party does not require the renunciation of religion for participation within Party organizations, for the abolition of religion will come through the abolition of the material conditions that give rise to religion, and that necessarily means working with people who are religious, people who are, as Lenin explicitly states by saying that the only good Marxists are atheists, inconsistent in the Marxism. In One Step Forward, Lenin states that the Communists must draw participants from a broadest possible base, while still maintaining revolutionary principles through separating members from associates, into party organizations, and shouldn't prevent people from participating within party organs even if they aren't Marxist in orientation, because in order to render these individuals into Marxists, they must go through the process of participating in Marxist organizations. In Left-Wing Communism, Lenin states that to refuse to participate in trade-unions that are reactionary undermines class consciousness as trade-unions are organs of working class struggle, and even if they are not geared towards a revolutionary end goal In fact, the way to ensure that these unions are diverted into revolutionary ends can only come through participation within these unions. What can we take from this? Well, even if they are not consistent we should still let them in.
/leftypol/ is not a rally, it is not a party, it is not a trade union, it is an imageboard for discussion from and of the Left. We are not in the middle of a revolution. I don't think I need to refer to Lenin to inform you that simply banning people the way we have banned people recently isn't the way forward. As Lenin said in Left-Wing Communism, socialism will be built "not with abstract human material, or with human material specially prepared by us, but with the human material bequeathed to us by capitalism". The solution to people we disagree with is by convincing them with superior arguments because, as Lenin said, "The Marxist doctrine is omnipotent because it is true." The frequency of banning is not an expression of a consistent Marxism but a product of the impotence of a lack of consistent Marxism.
He also advocated shutting down some forms of criticism on many occasions as well, even in the same stuff you cite.
I'm going to delete some obvious shitpost threads right now, unless I see actual discussion happening in them. Just letting everyone know in case your COMMIES BTFO thread gets deleted or whatever.
That should clear up some threads. Not that many, as there's such a torrent of shit and we have such a large catalog, but a substantial amount.
We have an autist just roaming around posting random pictures, mods.
Could someone go ahead and do the ban that deletes all my posts? My passwords have changed or something and I think I'm done posting here. Peace!
On second thought. It's alright. Not trying to make a thing out of it. (what's up with 8ch passwords by the way? I can't even delete this post. They'll all be gone sooner or later anyways I suppose) Goodbye lefty friends. Hope all goes well.
go back to reddit fuckface
BO, you coward
you silly dog
how can I pm you?
I really don't want to see you keep fucking up with this board
leftpol doen't have enough OPs.
Why was the "Cuban"poster from the Holdouts thread banned? His shitspewing should have been left up for everyone to point and laugh at.
would you kindly unbumplock my thread
What's with all the dumbasses especially with spurdo flags who keep baiting and end up derailing whole threads?
Hey man don't look at me. I'm the real Spurdo poster (the most annoying controversial one.) And I only posted on that one thread yesterday pretty much nothing else all week. I have no clue what you mean.
Mods, be on the lookout for shitposting. /pol/ over on halfchan is down, so a lot of kiddies will be posting bait threads & shitposts.
>Mods, be on the lookout for shitposting. /pol/ over on halfchan is down, so a lot of kiddies will be posting bait threads & shitposts.
holy fuck, are they nuking it again?
When I first made that post, I thought only /pol/ was down. The whole site is actually, posting looks to be disabled.
Please explain why my thread (https://8ch.net/leftypol/res/2599934) is bumplocked
Not sure why these two posters were banned. Surprised to be defending a lmaoist and a succdem, but I don't see them breaking any of the rules. Closest things are these two
-deny the problems imperialism
-attempt to cloak reactionary politics in left-wing rhetoric
because, yeah, Anglo Island is an imperialist nation that does use it's military to pursue those interests, and I suppose hard core supporting protectionist econ policies could be understood as reactionary maybe but tbh, I think it's quite a stretch. Like, the cheese on your pizza is tearing and falling into your lap stretch.
why is /leftypol/ so slow? Is it because BO (Baboon Owner) banned everyone? stop banning so much plz
>why is /leftypol/ so slow?
If we went any faster you and other migrants from /pol/ wouldn't be able to keep up.
Kropotkin, can you please decrypt this strange aryan dialect? Post fixed original and English translation, please
>Denna bok, skriven av en nationalekonom och en datorforskare, visar inte bara att ett annat s�tt �r m�jligt – den visar ocks� hur det rent konkret kan f�rverkligas med hj�lp av modern datakraft och det n�tverksbyggande som brutit igenom i v�r tid.
Is there some way the archive can be turned off? Keeping it on seems like a mistake. Users could be identified at some point based on typing patterns.
Comrade, that requires lot's of computing power. If you are a journalist, you can battle it with bigger use of greentexts, but I can see your IP post from 17.6.(not archive, just posts still in catalog) and I do not think your writing style is so original that anyone could identify you by it.
Can we ban incel posters? Serious inquiry. It is impossible to have a discussion of sex and gender on this board without some retard talking about how we need state mandated sex slaves because chad and stacy take his sexual value. Every thread concerning gender gets derailed with incel whining.
It doesn't only bring board quality down, it is also often a rape of Marxist terms and ideas (blah blah chads take my sexual value, sexual capitalism, redistribution of waifus and other retardation). If BO truly wants to get rid of bad politics that pervert the image of leftism, there's a way to start. Set up a script to instaban posts containing the words "incel" and "hypergamy" or something.
holy fucking shit pedo poster is back
stop posting pics of little children you fap to and kill yourself my man
You were banned for month, I removed your ban before you saw it. Someone disliked the fact that thread about murder attempt on anti-imperialist leader was derailed by discussion about anything else than shittalking USA.
Everyone who talks about sex, sexuality or gender should be banned tbh.
Mods, Who is this poster?
I've never seen him before and keeps doing strange posts, samefags a lot too.
I'm getting Hoochie vibes from these posts.
Posts under a bunch of different flags (black nationalist, hammer & sickle, tank, Lenin hat, black power, Stalin stache, red flag, and a few others) and a few different names ("Based EFF", "Girls Can Ride My Tank Too", "Blicky", "Around Whites, Never Feel Tight") but I see no reason to ban. Also seems to really like Contra.
accidental anprim flag
>mods are primmies
now I know why they're trying to destroy /leftypol/. because it runs on a computer.
Why did you anchor my news thread? I was just posting run of the mill news? I wasn't looking for all that TYBNewsAnon!!! shit but I wasn't looking to get anchored either.
remake without the contra shit, find some pro-sandinista articles instead
Is TeleSur acceptable? Nicarauga is an owner of TeleSur.
Sometimes, but TeleSur English is dogshit these days.
Why did you deleted this you porky? We nned to organize against the pigs
We got ourselves another autist. He posts this text, the only post from IP:
I hate this board and it’s fucking people.
What is wrong with being liberal? We brought you out of the stoneage. What is wrong with being feminist? Go be an incel elsewhere. And what is up with your fascist tendencies when it comes down to women? Muuuh secret society are playing 4ddd chess they are actually against us. Face it: You’re all manbabies.
This is pretty funny. Communists don't deny that capitalism (and hence the liberalism that developed as a result of it) has served to advance human development, and I'm pretty sure that at least a decent amount of people here consider themselves feminists.
There were three identical threads about something that I had posted in response to a kid who didn't demonstrate any argumentation skills or whatever. I responded to two, with one of my responses having a sage attached to it. Why did you delete all three threads?
As you said, you created three identical threads. Since no more posts were made from that IP, I deleted them all. Repeal and I'll unban you. Next time, please, post "oh shit I fucked up, sorry" from same IP so I know it's not raid.
milosevic disliker here
stick your permaban where the sun don't shine
Can you cycle the webm thread?
How the fuck unions can harm career of a simple worker (in this case a fucking cashier)? Except anti-unionist employer dismissing you, of course.
That burgerbux flag poster on the China and the nationalist quote thread may be one of the more retarded posters we have yet. Just letting that out there.
Snitches get stitches
fucking scabs get stabbed
Lolberts is self explanatory. laughed at until they kts
Why you make something so degrading so cute?
Where's Russian /leftypol/ I'm learning Russian myself and need some practice.
Russian /leftypol/ is dead, the imageboard
that hosted it is down since early 2018. /pol/ analogue at the most popular Russian board's full of lolbert-highschoolers, fascist incels and trolls.
OP has been engaging in somewhat good faith in >>2617691
I recommend taking the anchor off
lol this is pretty funny ngl
