>They'll break intra-thread anonymity.

ackchyually, it doesn't break your anonymity at all since it doesn't expose your identity, but it makes your posts identifiable. i am afraid that IDs are the only option left at this point. for instance, the faggot who posts the so-called blackpills and the anti-lisp fag from >>>/tech/952400 have samefagged multiple times to create the illusion that there are other anons who agree with him.

that thread actually deserves to get bumplocked since the task has been completed and there isn't anything else left to discuss. at this point, all that the anti-lisp fag does is to trying to do is to resurrect that flame war. but that's just useless bikeshed. the anti-lisp fag doesn't even list any real points or criticism, he just makes low-effort shitposts.

Your threads wouldn't be derailed if you were using PL/I, Lisp, and Multics like real men. All your software would work and you ascend from weeniehood into mandom.

As compatible as McKusick and Allman seem now, it was
hardly love at first byte. Back at Berkeley in 1976, when
Allman first tried to interface with McKusick about a date,
McKusick's closeted response included a menacing look.
Three years later McKusick finally scrounged up the
courage to cope with his sexuality by attending a gay rap
session at Berkeley and found shaggy-haired Allman
tossing smug "I knew it" grins from across the semicircle.
They bonded over a lengthy chat about computers later
that evening and began building a relationship in which
each would stake a claim for a piece of cyberspace history.

Lispfag violates rule #7 and >>1579 , which forbid spam, unwarranted self-identification, attention-whoring, and signatures. Since he's still actively shitting up the board, here's a brief spoonfeeding walkthrough of what he does wrong (and not another salty "pls remove this man for hating Unix" post).

He spams the same couple usenet posts across multiple threads, usually unrelated to the topic at hand unless it's a Unix hate thread, while prefacing them with a series of templated statements on preset topics. Occasionally he responds to posts in the thread which fit a template topic but refuses to respond if a post either doesn't fit his templates or invalidates/corrects one.

In addition to counting as spam, I propose that his easily identifiable template and formula counts as both unwaranted self-identification and attention whoring. His insistance to always include a random blockquote Unix Haters copypasta at the end of every post also means they function as a signature of sorts, often unrelated to both the posts he's supposedly responding to and even his template response points.

All this distinguishes Lispfag/UnixHaters anon from other anons with gripes against the Unix philosophy or specific unix implementations and programs. They actively discuss their gripes with anons and respond to criticism (and often bring up good points), while Lispfag spams the same templates over and over no matter what thread he's in. The best thing he's ever done was inspire anons to write insightful responses on things like Multics' memory segmenting system, which he completely ignores and buries under more template spam.

I do not want to silence criticism of Unix, far from it. I'd just rather have actual discussion brought to the forefront instead of buried under one anon's barely relevant spam.

64bf2f  No.1710

>waaaaaaaaaaaaah someone called UNIX a shit

protip: UNIX a shit

ac9edc  No.1712

I agree that the Unix Hater you are talking about sometimes fails to respond to his criticism. I try my best to always repond to those who criticise me though. I can understand why some of the other Anons might not want to because sometimes to answer you have to do several hours of research. I know I have for a couple of my replies.

A friend of mine who uses PC's says:

Even better is the Microsoft rm, which is buried in
their C compiler distribution, so you don't even know
you have it. When you accidentally type "rm foo"
instead of "del foo" it just works, and you don't even
notice that you've typed the wrong thing. That is, you
don't notice until you run out of disk space, and can't
find the files that are eating up that space. After a
few hours of futility, you might discover that "rm"
creates a subdirectory called DELETED, sets the
"hidden" attribute bit so you can't see it, and then
places the "deleted" files there.

Whoever wrote the Microsoft "rm" clearly understands how to
write code that is compatible not only with the letter but
also the spirit of Unix.

>whole thread derailed with new drama initiated by (((autismosis/kimjonchill)))

Define derailment? Someone posted information that implied Terry's donations might be getting stolen by namefags from IRC. The very same namefags that call anyone that disagrees with them autismosis. The tripfags that were the cancer killing the entire forum did that and now the vol that's a known IRC namefag is doing it. Calling people a random name doesn't make them wrong. The person that showed up with that information provided several bits that proved he was pretty much correct about the situation and the vol and several posters went into full damage control mode which made it all the more suspect.

>whole thread filled with false accusations

With nothing to refute them but "I was in the channel", "I've spoken to Terry please believe me". Again, fucking suspect.

>all the major boards spammed with defamation (see /pol/, /tv/, /cow/ and probably somewhere else too)

Really pushing those kike tactics, eh? Maybe someone posted it there to get the word out because it was obvious the people stealing from him were in control of /tech/'s moderation. Again, simple open discourse or some proof to dispute his claims would have solved this. Instead it was all damage control and threatening to dump people's post histories. Besides, /cow/ had a Terry general at all times and /pol/ regularly does as well. Plus it's strange that those threads were so quickly cross linked, almost like someone was going through the entire website looking to see if the information had spread beyond their control.

<cries when you actually start enforcing the rules, even after warning them you will do so

Cite the rule and don't call it thread derailment because that is BS.

>For those who are wondering, the post removed was in response to this one >>>/tech/959833

Which was a reply to a post I didn't make. All I did was reply to the vol to tell him that wouldn't help his case and make it look worse because it would jusPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

>"I've spoken to Terry please believe me". Again, fucking suspect.

Never said that. I always incited people to go check the archives, even pointing to the specific posts. Posts with actual proofs, as screen captures.

But clearly no one has done that. If they did they would have a much clearer picture of the situation.

>Instead it was all damage control and threatening to dump people's post histories.

Normal users cannot see IDs and it's an anon-forced board. I wanted to highlight the simple fact that all the accusations were perpetrated by him ("him" as in autismosis).

Nothing more than that, but he clearly feared it becuase it would compromise his credibility and lies.

>Define derailment?

A thread about a specific topic deviated into drama is what I meant with derailment.

>Now I'm convinced there is something to it

Not now, you already were, iirc you had accusatory posts.

>The tripfags that were the cancer killing the entire forum did that and now the vol that's a known IRC namefag is doing it.

Say it again? I do not understand the correlation between the tripfags (the k00l k1d5 ?) and the "IRC namefags" (again, who are you referring to?).

>it's strange that those threads were so quickly cross linked

If you post in boards that I normally browse, do you expect me to not see it?

>I'll be here to smug when you bastards get caught

Who do you think I'm "affiliated" with?


What makes you think that I have to steal, anyway?

Any by the way, you're doing it again. Morphing a thread about a sanction into more drama.

Why were the links to the various sub boards removed? Why is the volunteer seemingly acting like a cianigger in disguise? How or when did this faggot hijack the board from the old volunteer that never ever posted under his namefag volunteer account? And why is the volunteer a normalfag who uses (((winblows))) as to add https://8ch.net/tech/w7tele.html as even a unironic suggestion over installing gentoo/redox/openbsd?

The board owner hasn't changed.

I used to be a volunteer. I effectively left, so the board needed a new one. I haven't been paying attention to the board any more so that's all I know.

>And why is the volunteer a normalfag who uses (((winblows))) as to add https://8ch.net/tech/w7tele.html as even a unironic suggestion over installing gentoo/redox/openbsd?

That's been there for three years.
