/pol/ crossboarders should be identified with a small icon/flag on every other board they post on
>And how are you gonna identify who browses /pol/, newfag
Every IP that posts on /pol/ gets logged. Every time a post is made on a different board, board software checks the posting IP and puts a giant swastika or some shit next to the post if it's flagged.
wouldn't even need a database, could be done cleverly with bitfields
So you want to take the "anonymous"out of 4chan to fit your needs?
Is there anything else you'd like?
Maybe an up vote and down vote arrows next to post so you can show how much you agree with or disagree with the post?
Make it expire within 14 days of no shitposting on /pol/. If you post on /pol/ again, timer is reset. People who complain about "posting on /pol/ once then getting marked" already made 1 mistake and should suffer from it. There is no good reason to post on /pol/ and if you do you deserve to be marked.
>I don't like them because they disagree with me and hurt my feelings
>Ban and censor everyone associated with the horrible racists
I didn't think people actually got this upset over people enjoying other things, and leftists claim that the right wingers are the intolerant ones.
Why do you want to get rid of /pol/ so badly? give me a good explanation, is free speech really that offensive to you? Would you like 4chan to be more like reddit where the most common thing you read is [comment deleted] explain yourself loser.
Serious question for /pol/tards: What do you hope to accomplish by off-topic proselytizing on other boards?
>how to make every /pol/ user exclusively post from mobile networks - the post.
Go back to Reddit you fucking douche. You might as well ask for 4chan to have user accounts. Because that's the only way to actually track posting habits without the user handing you all of his personal info.
IP addresses are easily bypassed. You're not clever. You're not smart. You're not original. You're an idiot.
I really wish you fags would stop trying so hard.
>ban this opinion!
>b-but racism isnt allowed!
>I hate Anime! Ban it!
If Hiro listened to this shit 4chan would be fucked. This is the reason moot deleted /q/. The new admins left this board up hoping it would be better but it seems that it's already degraded into what /q/ was.
>hear about this /pol/ guy that is always in the /n/ews
>find /pol/ and their hilarious memes
>don't bother lurking just start shitting out /pol/ maymays all over four chans
>trigger other anons
>land whales come to /qa/ complaining about /pol/s harpoons
>/pol/ forces the maymay that everyone on /qa/ is from reddit because fuck it yolo
>walk the dinosaur
Honestly none of you have a shit show in hell of stopping us anymore the best we can do is limit the spread of newfaggotry or just not care what happens to your minority board depending on the prevailing mood.
Since no free speech was the state of things before hiro bought them and hasn't said anything about it now representing free speech it still stands that 4chan isn't about it current and never has
>forcing stormcucks to wear a flag identifying them as stormcucks
I approve of this just because of the irony of it.
Only ones crying to ban the big bad meanies from /pol/ is you faggots, still haven't given a decent explanation to why though.
>he deleted his own post just so he can add a le funny meme picture
>if I call them new h-he might think I'm an oldfag and stop bullying!
Your trying to hard I am.just trying to find out what motivates you losers
>wanting to force boards to be a #safespace™
The appeal of 4chan is that it allows for open discourse without associating your thoughts and opinions to a face/name. Taking that away, you get something akin to tumblr or reddit.
Well i agree with what you say, for a lot of users /pol/ is there safe space
Any opinion they don't like or is considered left they will spam it with shit
I fucking hate identity politics which is why I love 4chan because no one should care about your identity
However because of /pol's/ white race a stronk sentiment they are inserting identity into politics in the opposite way of sjws
It's funny how if you go on Tumblr and say something right-wing the response is the exact same as if you go on /pol/ and say something left-wing. Personal attacks, ad hominems, and statistics that get quoted but don't actually show whatever it is they're trying to make them show.
Not a lick of honest discussion, just people trying to force their personal politics down your throat.
Which is why it is important to have a space where you can voice both opinions.
I listen to Milo and I agree with him, because he makes good points, I fucking hate political correctness and he gets away with saying so much more shit because he is gay, but I don't agree with everything he says
Redditor here. I hate the idea. I like being able to funpost on /pol/ without consequences on other boards. I believe in prismatic identity. I have 15 different accounts on reddit for several different kinds of posts. 4chan should not, under any circumstances, implement OP's idea.
Great idea, OP!
We should also have an "upvote" and "downvote" system just incase any of those filthy /pol/ opinions get through the initial filter! Wouldn't want to trigger anybody, would we?
In fact, why don't we just move over to /r/gamerghazi or /r/SRS? They do a GREAT job and filtering out opinions that they don't like. Who needs 4chan when we have these two great bastions of discussion waiting for us?
Man these faggots need to die do they realise that they are a minority and are trying to force their wrong authoritarian views on everyone?
It's like those far left activists trying to get the illegal immigrants into UK even though %90 percent of us don't want those rapists here.
cringed. if you can't handle free speech then you're on the wrong website. boards on 4chan aren't isolated subreddits. should baneposting go on /tv/ exclusively as well? should spurdos stay on /int/ or should anime be confined to /a/ exclusively? none of that is happening, people crosspost, memes and ideas are being exchanged. you just hate people with another political opinion, grow thicker skin and learn to use the hide button you fucking crybaby.
You can tell who posts where on this website. For instance, I can tell that you come from Reddit, Gaia, Tumblr, Something Awful, and Facebook. I can also tell that you post on /pol/.
The only thing this change would do is CONFIRM what I already know.
>For instance, I can tell that you come from Reddit, Gaia, Tumblr, Something Awful, and Facebook. I can also tell that you post on /pol/.
I actually lurk on /fit/. Don't even post on /pol/.
Right now you're being just as bad as /pol/ posters. Saying that I'm from /pol/ is the same thing as /pol/ posters telling someone they're from tumblr or reddit.
If you're so sensitive that you can't handle someone having a different opinion than you, then maybe this isn't the website for you.
> Willing to segregate supposed racists
Oh, the irony.
>mfw 4th largest board
>mfw we are never leaving
>mfw cucks try delete pol
>implying your opinion means shit to the mods
>mfw even being deleted will only cause us to move to all the other boards
Really you guys are almost as worse as the guys who hate anime. This site is founded on anime and is a pillar of 4chan's identity. The follow up pillar is freedom and then racism. If you guys hate it then go make your own chan without anime and racism and see how long it last.
This board is majority delete pol, delete anime icons, or delete some other board. Nice argument by the way.
Well I got nothing better to do then enrage your anus. Why don't you tell me how much your opinion matters in the vast sea of piss known as 4chan and I'll post a nice reply with a cute image. We can do this all day so why not. Slow reply is because I'm in the board-tans thread.
Followup question. What board do you main? Always wondered where all the pol hate is from. It's /k/, right? /lgbt/?
I thought both those boards mostly agreed with us on things. Not the jews but maybe the females being whores thing.
Also dumping board-tans because I find them either adorable or funny.
holyshit I ended a stupid argument thread. Must be the first time in history. Well more board-tans time.
I hate /s4s/ but love the board's board-tan. Anyone still here?
Anon from /fit/ here.
I haven't seen that much /pol/ hate here. There are a lot of anons, though, that say that going to /pol/ made them depressed, and so they stopped going there. Other than that, only a few posts here and there that attack /pol/.
/r9k/ is a whole different story though. They're not generally accepted.
I myself don't really agree with the stuff /pol/ or /r9k/ anons usually say, but I don't really care about it being on /fit/. It doesn't derail threads or anything(Or, at least, I haven't seen any.)
Few months ago every other thread was people complaining about pol. Read alot of them and they said we raid boards and stuff. Never seen us talk about doing that.
Been meaning to get fit. I'm suppose the read the sticky, right? Also love fit-tan. Always found him funny.
Yeah, the sticky is a great place to start.
Routine: Starting Strength w/ accessories
Diet: Find TDEE, then use myfitnesspal.(Don't use the MFP calculator because it's shit, find your TDEE from http://scoobysworkshop.com/calorie-calculator/) Activity level will most likely be the 1-3 hours option of you're doing starting strength.
I'm bad at explaining this shit though, so you'd probably be better off reading the sticky. Good luck!
posting another tan
Anyone remember those death cults we /pol/ users started? Those were fun. to bad we have short attention spans or we could bring those things to fruition.
If the anti-/pol/ brigade are so concerned with off-topic posting then why do I never see them complain about off-topic political conversations that have a liberal bias? Or about other off-topic cross posters (/a/ in /tv/ for example)?
I only ever see >>>/pol/ applied to racist comments, whether they're on topic or not. You're obviously offended but you know that's not a valid complaint here, so you pretend that you're concerned with off-topic posting. Complete bullshit. And if you wanna talk about obnoxious, holy shit! In this thread alone:
>OP: let's all make [board i don't like] have to do stuff for us!
>this entire post >>419051
>that's nice, honey
>talking around users (eg. >>419097)
You people disgust every other user with your condescending, passive-aggressive bitching. Half the time it's so blatantly obvious that you're just a pampered, stuck up cow with an inflated sense of self-importance. You can't tell trolls from stormfags, or stormfags from /pol/ because you're so blinded by your self-righteousness, yet you post as if you've figured this whole site out in the 6 months you've been here. Your demands on /qa/ that this whole site cater to your sensibilities just reek of entitlement and I wouldn't be surprised if you're only here because you think you're changing the world for the better by "educating" the evil racists. Pathetic.
Lurk moar, realise you're not even remotely welcome here, then GTFO and eat some more ice cream you foul, worthless old cunts.
>You can't tell trolls from stormfags, or stormfags from /pol/
because they're basically the same self-righteous fags
the only difference being that /pol/ believes itself when it claims to be the bearer of original 4chan heritage
>lemme guess, you think 4chan was a politically correct wonderland like /leftypol/ back in 2004?
4chan used to have more of a diversity of political opinion and less angry faggots declaring that they represented 4chan
also less overtly political right-wing derails
>Your memory is flawed because you were younger back when you formed those memories. Sorry.
guess we'd better abolish memory as a source of truth because it's from the past and as we all know things from the past are unreliable
>4chan has always been ridiculous and angry. Just look up old memes.
it really depends on where you go and how much the people there idolize shitflinging, which is not in fact everywhere
>trolls and stormfags are basically the same
Do you even know what a troll is?
And no, /pol/ is not Stormfront. There are users on /pol/ who celebrate Stormfront getting BTFO by a news story. There are progressives and communists on /pol/, though they be in the minority of posters.
The request for someone to "go back to /pol/" is only strictly appropriate when someone is posting off-topic, no matter what their political alignment. I'll try to make it clear:
Racist shitposting = Troll
Serious racism/Nazi propaganda = Stormfront
Derailing a thread to talk politics = /pol/
>guess we'd better abolish memory as a source of truth because it's from the past and as we all know things from the past are unreliable
Yes. And the next thing I said was to gather proof instead of relying on your memory.
>There are progressives and communists on /pol/, though they be in the minority of posters.
>Serious racism/Nazi propaganda = Stormfront
Like marxist propaganda or white guilt shit is any better
if your topic is hated enough simply posting it on a board where it doesn't belong can easily constitute trolling
>There are users on /pol/ who celebrate Stormfront getting BTFO by a news story.
there are also users on /a/ who hate anime and the entirety of the board culture, but this doesn't stop us from identifying the average /a/ poster when we see one
it's almost like your original post was also made largely of statements like
>why do I never see them
>I only ever see
but of course only people you disagree with should ever have to "prove" things
I'm not saying it's better or worse, just that Stormfront is constantly misidentified as /pol/.
I'm sure there are people who have posted on /pol/ every waking moment for the last year and still don't consider themselves /pol/ because their beliefs don't conform to the Stormfront image of /pol/.
It's ridiculous but you see it on virtually every major board. A user starts gloating over some victory over the board or defining the whole board as a bunch of losers, as though they can somehow lurk and post there all day without being part of the community.
I often suspect these users of being there to push some kind of hidden agenda. Why else would they be there if they don't like the place or identify with it in any way?
Why can't people just ignore the boards they don't like? I was posting racist opinions before pol was a thing.
>if your topic is hated enough simply posting it on a board where it doesn't belong can easily constitute trolling
Trolling is about intent. You're trying to make someone mad by pushing their buttons. This has gotten a lot easier with the influx of politically sensitive users who are inexperienced with 4chan trolls.
Stormfront can sometimes troll, there can be overlap, sure. This generally just looks like someone lashing out rather than infographic or stat dumping. But not all race-based trolls are Stormfront, and not all Stormfags are trying to troll. Stormfront usually posts in earnest, trying to convince people to come round to their way of thinking. Just because their way of thinking makes you mad doesn't mean they're trolling.
Trolls often seem like they're genuine because the best trolls are usually disguised as honest stupidity, but there is a definite difference. As I mentioned, a troll might post both sides of the argument to deploy the maximum bait. I admit, sometimes I myself can't tell which is posting, and I'm pretty sure there are Stormfags who feel validated by race-based trolls, even though the troll might not actually sympathise with the Nazis one bit.
Just admit you want anyone who has posted on /pol/ to be permabanned from 4chan so you can use it without having to see views that offend you, and feel like you've won some kind of ideological war.
You (and OP) are acting like you're making concessions. "Oh we only want to identify /pol/ posters, not censor them completely, see how reasonable we are? These are totally reasonable requests!"
How about all posts display how long a user has been posting on 4chan? That way we can all see the faggots who arrived from Twitter and Tumblr and SRS during the Gamergate/Fappening controversies, bringing their PC agenda and their demands for censorship. You know what? It's not needed because you cunts stand out a mile.
You're free to ask me to provide proof and I'll ignore it just as you ignored my asking you to provide proof. There's nothing wrong with just saying things. That's what 4chan is.
This thread will 404 soon, and all of the sandcastles we've constructed here will be gone.
Want to watch the sunset with me while the waves know away what we've worked on?
>Just admit you want anyone who has posted on /pol/ to be permabanned from 4chan so you can use it without having to see views that offend you, and feel like you've won some kind of ideological war.
What kind of views did you have in mind?
honestly /pol/fags are the easiest to troll, all you have to do is post a well-reasoned argument in favor of something "degenerate" and they get really butthurt if you post it on /pol/
>post your feelings and call it a well reasoned argument
Can confirm. I've been a regular on /pol/ for 3 years and am still not a stormfag. I just hate muslims, jews and niggers but once they are gone, I couldn't care less about politics or the white race.
Late to the party but just saw this..
>/pol/ crossboarders should be identified with a small icon/flag on every other board they post on
>[some arbitrary people I dont like] should be identified with a small [ID/barcode/symbol] [in a clearly visible place so we can track/shame them]
I dont agree with this approach... whether the brand is a star, a swastika or a pink triangle.
I do believe in freedom of speech and meaningful debate which is why I find /pol/ to be an interesting melting pot where people can have honest discussions about all sorts of things which are not possible elsewhere.
I am a moderate voice in that forum, as it happens. I get roasted from time to time but that's OK.
I think there is resurgence in anti-/pol/ism because at this point in time 4chan has not yet learned how to handle the truth, and i think we going to be part of the throes of that transformation which MUST TAKE PLACE. 4chan is not going to be the monolithic degenarete society it once was in the last years. /pol/ is going to be in the center of that, its a HUGE transformation for 4chan to make. 4chan is going into TRUTH mode, and /pol/ will be resented because of its leading role, BUT WITHOUT that leading role AND WITHOUT that transformation 4chan will not survive...
It's an adaptation of pic related - a staple of /pol/.
/v/ and /b/ stay in their shitholes. /pol/ doesn't. How often do you see Vivian posted? Pretty much never. Now compare this with the amount of times you have seen anons crying about wordfiltering "cuck" being leftist censorship when the filter was in place.
How do you know that? Content you would find on /pol/ ≠ Poster from /pol/.
Heck, half the time I don`t even try to come up with something creative when I want to troll boards and instead post something like pic related because retards will you will start to rage with the force of a thousand autists as soon as you see
>/v/ and /b/ have much worse content than /pol/.
>worse content than /pol/
>jumping into an argument without taking the position you're arguing
>Arguing that /v/ is shit without showing any sings of improving is the same as arguing for /pol/ being better
The point is, even if these people aren't from /pol/ and still post politics, when someone tells them about the existence of a board for exactly this, they should go there and not cry about censorship.
I share many opinions of your stereotypical /pol/lack, and yet don't feel a need to shove it in everyone's throat, whole the time, on all boards. I'm sure that the image you posted wasn't in a thread about poverty/race/crime, was it?
>/b/ stays in their shithole
wtf do you think shitposting and trolling is? /b/ is FOR shitposting and trolls, that's where it technically belongs. The rest of the site is (ostensibly) for civilised discussion apart from obvious exceptions like /s4s/.
Long, LONG before you fucks arrived and got offended by the general tone of the site (and ascribed it ALL to /pol/), we would always tell shitposters to "gb2 /b/." That was the original ">>>/pol/."
Now you cunts think that all of 4chan is open for shitposting, and that the original "offensive" (ie. politically incorrect) flavour of 4chan belongs in /pol/.
This is what happens when you stop telling newfags to lurk moar.
>Opinions I don't like on my Anonymous image board?
>I think not!
>Let's just give them all identifiable icons whenever they post somewhere else.
>Actually, let's give them permanent IDs too. That way everyone will know who they are all the time.
If you want people to be held accountable for what they say via names and IDs, then fucking go somewhere else. This is an ANONYMOUS image board. If people want names, they'll put them in the name field. If you can't handle it, then fuck off.
>This is what happens when you stop telling newfags to lurk moar.
Word, perfect example would be /a/
Also fuck everyone that used to post
>muh secrit klub
Because yes, it somewhat was, and that's one of the reasons it was better back then
I refuse to look at /v/ as a 4chan board anymore, it's really just a mix between tumblr and reddit. And if I wanted that, I could just visit those sites.
This idea is retarded. I post on /pol/ all the time. When I go to /a/ I discuss anime, when I go to /his/ I discuss history, when I go to /fit/ i discuss lifting. Why should one board out of dozens have a scarlet letter that follows me around the site? It ruins the anonymity that makes posting so streamlined. Do you have any idea how much a /pol/ icon would derail every thread it's in?
That's a nice citation you have right there /po/tard.
Just looked up reddit too. They have rules against doxxing or even exposing usernames apparently.
reminder that /pol/ is reddit and they are the ones who bring more reddit into 4chan with their epic memes on /r/4chan
Tumblr and progressive subreddits will automatically permaban anyone disagreeing with the general consensus. You can debate whatever you want on /pol/ and various "hate" subreddits without being banned.
Contrary views will be downvoted into obscurity on the subreddits but you can't silence someone on /pol/ no matter what their position. Obviously this makes it a magnet for the most controversial views, and throws open the door for false flag sabotage posting too, hence /pol/'s reputation. But it's more free than any popular (and legal) forum on the internet, and freedom of expression is fundamental to political debate. If there is one place you can debate any subject from any angle, with a wide variety of people, it's /pol/.
These guys don't care you can prove them wrong a thousand times but tomorrow there will be another 2 or 3 threads suggesting to change /pol/ in some way or delete it.
Painfully obvious these people aren't from 4chan at all.
Mods are just retarded.
If someone comes to 4chan with a hidden agenda, if they're only pretending to be an honest user in order to further a personal goal then you could say they're not strictly a legitimate 4chan user and therefore not "from" 4chan.
They could be marketing a product or pushing or blocking a political idea (shills), monitoring potential dissidents/criminals (nsa/fbi/gchq agents), conducting surveys, even just getting /sci/ to do their maths homework - if they're treating the users of 4chan as a means to an end rather than as an end in itself, then they're not really 4chan.
If someone is new to 4chan and has the attitude or posting style of a different community, then you could say they're more aligned with their original community than with the 4chan userbase. Traditionally, 4chan users would tell blatant outsiders to "lurk moar" or to "go back to [rival forum]" if they didn't fit in with the prevailing culture, but in the last few years this site has become overwhelmed with new users. The 4chan community is now, for want of a better word, multicultural.
This will surely work great. Absolutely flawless. Nobody will ever use a proxy. No, its not like we have had posters "from" North Korea and Cuba before, those dudes were TOTES legit. Technology is infallible. Well done.
Maybe we could get cool little rating arrows next to the posts too! And maybe a share button?
We could also get a big "STOP" button next to the posts that trigger you that will effectively filter the user for good.
'pol is going full racist! i hate them!'
'lets mark them so everyone knows the scum they are!'
how about a yellow star with six rays as a mark, to be worn on every other post?
you guys are pathetic.
and pollack would wear that mark with pride so it wouldn't do anything.
Sure, why not?
You are pathetic if you judge an opinion based on who says it (and even more so if you just base it on a subsection of a website they visit), and I have no doubt that I and fellow /pol/tards would wear our badge of honor with pride, as it proves that we haven`t scumbed to the feel-good culture that has plagued the west for so long.
You'd have to be a braindead chimp not to notice the fucking (source) link whether you're familiar with the site or not.
This shit is common knowledge. The comics were something that many people online enjoyed and SJWs are something that many people online would prefer to stay the fuck away from.
>Tumblrtards use the phrase "my actual face when"
>some shitty comic is common knowledge
For redditors, maybe.
>tumblr sjws exposed as a mob of vicious, petty bitches once again
>"oh shit better lie and call it fake and call the anon who posted the link a redditor"
Your damage control is pathetic.
That doxxing was indefensible and yes, it is common knowledge that it happened, and shouldn't even surprise you if you're not new to internet politics. There is nothing positive about the SJW movement, all of their beliefs have their roots in cowardice and greed. Their methods betray their motives.
I'm sure one of the reasons they want /pol/ silenced is so that these kinds of hate-filled attacks on people's personal lives can stay hidden from the public.
>either with us or against us mentality
This is why people hate you. Not your views, but your need to mention them everywhere you go, no matter what people are talking about. And if somebody says that he wants to talk about something else than politics, you automatically assume he is your enemy. Fuck you.
if they added crossboard /pol/ flags, you'd just make a thread here complaining that people were circumventing it because you'd still come across post that triggered you that didn't have the flag.
That might be fun, just imagine, a big, beautiful swastika next to anonymous every time I post. OP is still a faggot redditor who is suggesting it to fuck up the site though.
maybe we should have JIDF in big letters next to their name for everyone who posts one of a variety of common trolls threads (How can white men even compete with the photoshopped black guy, /POL/ BTFO with some liberal facebook mom's status, etc) or advocates for reddit? Maybe a nice Jude star next to people who shitpost about sanders or shillary or say that the liberals arent trying to fucking genocide Europe?
If we got that at the same time, I would love something like this, I get a nice swastika, and you faggots get to see exactly how right /pol/ is about JIDF shilling faggots invading our site.
