I think getting rid of flags might help, they serve no purpose except to make avatarfagging easier and/or cause distro wars.

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.

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.

I've been seeing threads being derailed into flagrant shitposting by a few tripcode using offenders. As you all probably figured by now, I'm usually lenient in my hotpocketing, escpecially within threads, deleting only the garbage of the garbage. That obviously isn't working, hence most of the complaints on this board. In fact, It's only been getting worse.

First of all, I have added a new policy, regarding thread quality:

>When making a thread, please try to put some effort into the OP. Low effort/quality threads (ie. "x is y, prove me wrong", ">he doesnt x") will be bumplocked.

In light of that, I have made bumplocks publicly visible.

Secondly, I am going to be a bit more heavy-handed in enforcing the rules, with an emphasis on Rule 7:

>No spamming, sagebombing, shitposting, unwarranted self-identification (ie. signatures, avatars, tripcodes), or making posts advertising or requesting any kind of currency (bitcoin, altcoin, USD, etc), referrals, boards, products, and/or services.

>Shitposting is defined as a post or thread that doesn't have any meaningful content, indecipherable text (ie. "lol u tk him 2da bar|?") or otherwise contributes nothing toward discussion (ie. posting just to announce sage). It does NOT mean "anything you don't personally like."

Anything fitting that description will be deleted.

I wish it didn't have to be like this. But some people like taking advantage of our lax enforcement policies, thinking they can do whatever they want. That isn't fair to the people who want to have discussion.

In case you haven't noticed, I have amended rule 7 to include any form of self-identification (ie. signatures, avatars, tripcodes) when the situation doesn't call for it. Anyone tripfagging/avatarfagging/signaturefagging or otherwise attention whoring after the time this post was made will get all of their offending posts deleted and a ban.

/tech/ has gone to shit in recent years, but it's not irredeemable. It is time for an improvement. I suggest the following guidelines:

1. Do not make one-sentence threads. Elaborate on your question or opinion. An example of a one-sentence thread which is currently visible in the catalog is "tripcodes a shit discuss". Hide all one-sentence threads unconditionally.

2. Filter tripfags and avatarfags such as cuteposter. Also filter people such as the UNIX hater. These people (ESPECIALLY both of them in combination) derail threads wherever they post, and go against the spirit of an anonymous imageboard.

3. Do not reply to gay bait threads such as "HURRR X IS OBJECTIVELY BETTER PROVE ME WRONG". These types of threads do not inspire good discussion, and generally fall under (1) as well.

4. Do not reply to retarded wangblows users who insist on using wangblows for non-essential tasks. People who willingly use proprietary software and have no willingness to switch to Linux do not deserve to post here.

I biggest problem is that most anons come to /tech/ when they need something, not necessarily to have rants or raves. They are self sufficient and go about their lives. This site has more integrity than the one left behind. You'll have the odd topic and conversation that gets extensive, but you can not expect that on the regular.
