>>430318 /pol/ already exists. Why would we need to go to another board to shitpost about the juice and blacks when we already have /pol/? /his/ is for something entirely different and i enjoy it for what it is and i enjoy /pol/ for what /pol/ is, I see no reason to try mix the two and i'd say the same is true for most other people on /pol/. This is the entire reasoning behind a containment board, I don't see why so many people can't understand this.
>>430367 >I see no reason to try mix the two I don't think that's what OP was saying should happen. He was just asking a question why /pol/ hasn't been posting on the history boards, especially when they're are other boards supposedly full of crossboard posting that have even less to with politics than /his/ does.
Also there is no such thing as a containment board. There are only designated shitposting boards and boards that have shitposting.
>>430392 Yeah, and the reason that is not happening with /his/ is because /pol/ is where those posts go, not on /his/ and most /po/acks understand that. I really don't think crossboard posting with /pol/ is as big a problem as you are making it out to be.
I haven't been there in a few weeks, but I remember that, in the beginning, the moderation was pretty darn strict. There were some obvious /pol/-posters making and posting in holocaust, medieval, and hero-worship threads, but they had to tread carefully.
>>430708 Jesus Christ I wish you fucks would stop using this word. I'm not a polack but can you at least call them 'stormfags' or even 'stormfriends' if the former is too offensive for you? The current term makes you sound like a 6 year old.
>>430318 Over half the threads on /his/ aren't even about history. Everything is about religion or philosophy, which is effectively just ends up being politics under a different name. The board is just /pol/ 2.0.
I don't have any issues with splitting up one of the most active boards on the site, but pretending it's something it isn't is only going to cause issues in the long run.
There is a new, lazily enforced board rule on /lit/, that philosophy may only be discussed in relation to literature or the act of reading.
Posts about philosophy in general must now be posted here on /his/, instead of /lit/ (even the /lit/ lends itself to philosophy much more). Hiroshima made the mistake of conflating the study of history, with the rest of the humanities and containing it all on this board.
>>430318 Being blue really. /pol/ being red puts it in the same league as /b/ and /r9k/ non-standards. One of moot's dumbest moves ever imo was not the act of bringing back /pol/ but making it a red board instead of bumping it to blue. If /his/ was red that would encourage revisionists and shills to force their shit because they think they have free reign to be as incorrect and edgybas possible because nsfw status. Just being called not work safe to begin with very, very much attracts the real edgelords out there, be them teen or adult.
If /pol/ was made a blue board (sfw) and forced to actually stay on topic, it would be a very different place because just outright saying it is nsfw encourages fringe and off topic shit to come out of the woodwork, as they are emboldened thinking they can get away with shit there they normally can't say without getting laughed out of the room or their teeth punched in. This is a privilege to be able to speak so frankly there, but when the entire fucking board revels in its edginess and shouts down attempts at civility and rationality, it just results in an entire userbase of very irritating+irritated people.
