Can you shadowban /pol/ users from everwhere but /b/?
I can't even talk about recipies in /ck/ without a /pol/tard derailing the thread by calling the black chef a nigger.

What went wrong?
The first iteration was intended to be slightly humorous, "nigga stole my TV" and such. It was racist, but it wasn't the "let's literally reinstate black slavery" racism that the fresh-faced 15-year-olds of /pol/ spam to be edgy.
Crossboard culture is a part of 4chan. If it offends you, you can always try reddit(seriously, not trying to insult you or anything.)
Reddit has boards for every topic and stricter moderation. If /pol/ offends you, reddit will be a better place for you.
>Crossboard culture is a part of 4chan.
Agreed, containment board culture is not however. Retarded /aco/ users can post their shitty art away from /d/ and dubsposting is banned outside of /b/ and other grabage boards.
Every board is a containment board. You know, that`s why they have a set topic.
What you mean is that board culture you do not like isn`t a part of 4chan, and that is even bigger bullshit, considering that most of the traffic probaly comes from exactly the boards you dislike.
>Boards aren`t made to contain the topic they are about in one board
Sure m8. /k/ isn't for talking about weapons, /o/ is. If you can`t understand that basic principe behind the Idea of boards you clearly are to young to post on this site.
>Implying that isn`t technically against the rules
If anything "containment board" culture is even more a part of 4chan than the shitty excuse whatever obscure board you visit has for a culture. Not only do they draw more users, they are also what defines 4chan for the outside world.
As the other guy already said, you can just leave if you do not like the site. Nobody forces you to stay here, but stop bein a pathetic bitch that demands that 4chan changes to suit your needs if you decide to stay here, that will ease the pain you feel in your butt constantly
If you truely had been here since before 4chan existed then congrats time traveller.
That said, if you have been here for any significant amount of time you would know that a pol/ack is just one of the possible things a poster might be. Not omg back to pol naughty fee fee hurting person!!!!11! Or ban pol or delete the board! Seriously, just enough with the shit posting.
If something is off topic, dont take part in it and ignore.
This. Once upon a time that "nigger" comment wouldn't have even got a reply. It wouldn't have affected the thread.
But now it's:
"how about this chef tho?"
"lol, he's a nigger!"
"FUCK YOU /POL/ EVERYONE HATES YOU!"
"not even /pol/, faggot"
"back 2 redshit sjw cuk"
"see, this is the problem with /pol/. we were having a perfectly nice discussion about a chef of colour and now the whole thread's ruined! I wish someone would just ban all things."
"REEEEEE FUCK OFF NEWFAG"
*continues for 300+ posts"
We used to have a saying: "Don't feed the trolls." This is exactly why. How many times are you going to run crying to /qa/ when you see something on 4chan that upsets you? That's 4chan, love it or leave it. It's not going to change because of a whiny minority that don't like it yet somehow are unable to leave.
Everyone's entitled to their opinion. If they're successfully trolling you, then that's on you, buddy. Welcome to 4chan.
If they're consistently posting far enough off topic that it's preventing on-topic discussion, then report it and move on. Challenging them only adds to the derailment.
Let me put it this way: Once you've reported it, one of two things will happen. Either it gets deleted, or it doesn't. If it does, congratulations, you got your way, go on with your business. Dwelling on what you saw isn't healthy, just let it go, man. It's 4chan. Nobody needs to hear about it, we're busy with our memes and such.
If it doesn't get deleted, well, I know that's hard to deal with, but that's the mod's decision, not yours. Crying won't make the mods change their mind. If you need to take a time out, go ahead. You can hide the post if you need to, or close the thread. You can even find a different website to frequent, one that is more strict about what people can post. Sometimes I don't even go on the internet, I go outside or play on my XBox. What you should never do is start a conversation with those people that are bothering you. That will almost certainly lead to more tears and I'm sorry to break it to you but you won't get much sympathy on here. All you'll do is help them derail the thread.
You can make as many threads on /qa/ as you like, it won't stop people being racist, won't stop them posting, and won't stop them ban evading. If that fact gets too stressful to handle then remember this: NOBODY IS FORCING YOU TO GO ON 4CHAN. YOU ARE FREE TO LEAVE AT ANY TIME.
Now please, for all our sakes, don't feed the trolls.
I think we all understand the "don't feed the trolls" proverb. But this isn't a "don't feel the trolls" type issue, it's a "trolls spam threads and make discussion impossible" problem. M00t affectionately referred to it as "shitposting": starting new threads and spamming existing threads such that actual content gets pushed into the archive/is pruned or deleted. /int/ and /news/ seem to suffer the most from this behaviour, but it has become increasingly common on all boards.
There is a difference between understanding board culture and choosing to participate or not, and participating on a board while being shouted at by /pol/'s social justice gestapo. /pol/ has its own board, and /pol/ should stay on its own board. There is no good reason for them to spam other boards with their SJW and Jew trolling posts. It's shitposting and it shouldn't be defended.
>starting new threads and spamming existing threads such that actual content gets pushed into the archive/is pruned or deleted
That's called sliding and I've seen it happen on /pol/ but I've never really seen /pol/ do it on other boards except maybe during /pol/ Harbor. It definitely happened on /tv/ when the Star Wars trailer came out though, we got a Star Wars thread a minute. That shit was rough.
But /pol/ sliding other boards? Be real. You need to make and bump a ton of threads for that to happen and /pol/ crossposters just don't spam threads like that. You must be ascribing innocent or slightly politically charged threads with /pol/ because I've seen their work, especially on /tv/ and /his/, and their modus operandi is to make a handful of politically charged threads that are barely on-topic and get a ton of replies because people are offended. The main offenders when it comes to sliding are memeposters. They post four times as many useless threads as /pol/. And occasionally shills or porn will flood a board, but that's not so common.
Granted, I don't go on /int/ or /news/ but to be honest, those boards are as notorious as /pol/. I'd expect the same kind of discussion on those boards as on /pol/. That's not an invasion, that's the native userbase of those boards sharing /pol/'s views (as many natives do on other boards).
Like I said, all you can do is ask for tighter moderation to be applied the way you want it, but you're crying in the rain. If you don't like your surroundings, it's often easier to change them by walking away than it is to stay put and try to rearrange things to your liking. Try discussing your hobbies and interests on a different site. 4chan isn't for everyone.
No, complaining is pointless because nobody can do shit about it, and frankly, the only people who care are sensitive little newfags who mistake native racism for some kind of /pol/ raid and demand something be done about /pol/ invading the whole site, as though users on other boards can't hold controversial opinions themselves.
The main bulk of shitposting is meme-based, and being racist isn't shitposting, it's racism. And not all racism comes from /pol/. I've never seen anyone complain about /ck/ crossposting, or /x/ crossposting, or even /b/ shitposting, only /pol/. And most of the time it's either a troll (not /pol/, /b/) or some random user's racism (not /pol/, native), or an isolated case of Stormfaggery (not /pol/, Stormfront).
I get it, you can't admit the racism offends you because you know nobody cares about that, so you have to pretend it all comes from outside your beloved board and that your problem isn't with the racism, but that it's off-topic, or that it's against the rules. I see tons of other off topic shit and blatant rulebreaking all the time and nobody ever complains about that, only the racism is ever off-topic or against the rules.
The more you complain, the more the trolls will smell blood in the water. Racist thread derailing wasn't a problem until this new army of faggots turned up and started crying about it, and it's still not in the top 5 problems on 4chan but it's all we ever hear about because God forbid someone use the n-word on this, the site completely fucking famous for it's edgy language.
You never should have come here, but now that you have, if you're going to stay, stop the constant fucking bitching and whining and enjoy the site for fuck's sake.
>complaining is pointless because nobody can do shit about it
the mods can crack down on it
>the only people who care are sensitive little newfags
nah lad shitposting is shitposting
didn't read the rest of your trash, it's likely as irrational and demonstrably false as the rest of your "arguments"
You want the mods to crack down on shitposting? That's like saying you want cops to crack down on crime. It's fucking meaningless. You really think a mod will see that and suddenly start doing their job effectively?
And I suppose you get to decide what constitutes shitposting. Let me guess, racism? Because that can only be /pol/ shitposting, right? Better make that top priority!
You don't know what shitposting is. Shitposting doesn't come from other boards, it comes from kids spouting memes and trolls trying to fuck with you. It comes from opportunists posting porn when the mods are asleep.
Just because something offends you doesn't make it shitposting, it makes you unsuited to 4chan.
it offends no one, it is off topic and detracts from legit threads much like dubsposting
i know your feeble stormweenie mind is incapable of making coherent arguments and can only strawman, but at least try
Here is the argument faggot: We have been saying nigger on 4chan since before you began posting here. We will continue to say nigger. It isn't /pol/ or some other boogeyman.
If you do not like it, or can't hash it, then I very sincerely suggest you consider alternative websites.
Here is the argument faggot: We have been posting dubs threads on 4chan since before you began posting here. We will continue to post dubs threads. It isn't /s4s/ or some other boogeyman.
If you do not like it, or can't hash it, then I very sincerely suggest you consider alternative websites.
>it offends no one
Then why are 90% of the complaints on this site about racism when there are other off topic threads and derailments going on all over the place?
>much like dubsposting
You ever see someone complain about dubsposting? It's rare, isn't it? Is there a dubsposting complaint thread on /qa/ right now? I see more dubsposting in threads than racist remarks, yet everyone ignores the dubsposting. Why only go after the racism and not all the other kinds of shitposting?
It's because it bothers you, racism makes you and others like you uncomfortable even on here, and you don't want to be uncomfortable while you're chatting about Bob Dylan or teapots or stir-fried rice. So you pretend it doesn't make you uncomfortable (because nobody cares) and that instead your problem is "shitposting" or "crossboarding." Things you'd seen everywhere but never complained about until the nature of it made you uncomfortable.
Be honest about what's bothering you and realise that racism isn't leaving 4chan any time soon, so maybe you should.
BTW, I'm not racist myself, I hate the racism on here, but nowhere near as much as I hate the entitled, self-important demands for political censorship on 4chan. Especially when they're dressed up as complaints against "shitposting" and "crossboarding" to gain credibility.
Racist posters are usually self-righteous about their racism, whereas all dubsposting (and ERPers, and rollers, and avatarfags, and all the usual shitposters) know they are scum and everybody else knows they're scum too.
A proliferation of actual and widespread racism has the potential to change the fabric of the board.
>You ever see someone complain about dubsposting?
yes, it is banned outside of the garbage boards because much like crying about niggers and jews it adds nothing to the discussion and shits up the thread
the rest of your post reeks of projection, keep on going with that strawman after it has been explicitly refuted multiple times
>expecting a stormweenie to construct an argument
what was i thinking
And you think censorship is the way to tackle this problem?
Every time you censor or ban someone for their political views, no matter how despicable they may be, you not only reinforce their beliefs, you lend their cause credibility. You demonstrate that you are unable to meet their argument honestly and need to shut down the debate before it begins. The censored party can walk away triumphant while you hide from his beliefs.
Demanding that certain views be confined to one board is a form of censorship too, and although obviously some people express their political views at an inappropriate time and place (and deserve to be reported), the "fabric" of 4chan is primarily that of honest, uncensored debate. That is what needs to be preserved above all else, not racial sensitivity or a safe space for everyone.
If a few precious feelings get hurt and a bunch of scared children have to cry "go back to /pol/!" then that's a small price to pay for the chance to speak our minds on every subject and, more importantly, hear other people speak theirs.
Then what was your problem with that other poster? They were only reserving the right to say the word "nigger," they weren't proselytising or posting judgements about anybody.
What did they do that offended you and deserves to be confined to /pol/?
Will that be your entire contribution to the debate? A stale meme? You call /pol/ "shitposters" and then post that as your entire post?
Are you trying to give /pol/ credibility? Because not many people would consider that a convincing argument and it's clear who you're losing to...
>and I stop, that means they've succeeded
it does, don't stop.
i don't really know what you're trying to say but say it and keep saying it, don't let someone silence you with such little weapons as 'hurr pol'
Yes. Deleting shit is how people keep said shit they don't want off various boards.
You don't get to bitch about Undertale on /a/. You don't get to ERP on /a/. You don't get to post ponies on /a/. You don't even get to argue how it should be acceptable to post about Undertale, or ERP, or ponies on /a/, because you'll eat a ban for it. All of this is censorship, and all of it is just and proper.
>I've never seen anyone speak positively about Undertale in my whole life
blatant lie and you know it, post discarded.
But the real question is.. why do you need so many watermelon recipes?
We warned you but you were too busy following /pol/s lead into offtopic and slacktivism cancer.
"Hello R*ddit" is the only form of off-topic shit posting thats on the same level as the teenage edgelords spewing racial slurs in every fucking thread because the internet told them this while sure is nothing but a place for racist shitposting.
And there have been plenty of threads complaining about R*ddit shitposting too, and a mod finally cleaning it up
Not nearly as common as the "lololol look at how racist Im being, am I edgy enough for 4chan yet" posts. Maybe 5 years ago, but that's the point: the racist shitposting is higher than it used to be. While dubsposting outside of /b/ is less common than it was
Hello r**dit is basically for people who came here through that site and are another kind of newfag who thinks they know the site culture (as shit as it might be) but in reality they don't.
The same happens the other way around too. That's why there's a r**ditisation of 4chan and a 4chanisation of r**dit
Reddit is used as a popular boogeyman on a ton of sites, like GameFAQs and shit, it's obnoxious. Something happens that they didn't predict and they go fucking nuclear screaming about Reddit.
Because r**dit's big subs are basically shit and the standard user posts there. Ironically, they're like /pol/ except they aren't openly homophobe/misogynist/racist/xenophobic/whatever
4chan is more vocal because anonimity
>Every reply confirms what OP said
Fuck all of you, fuck /pol/, fuck r*ddit, fuck tumblr , anf fuck 8ch*n. LITERALLY NO SITE is worth going to anymore.
Reminder that old people are using /pol/ to influence young minds.
