well at least we established here and in the radical thread that he either doesnt / cannot read. dunno if he was considered a serious user but i believe that takes a big hit, now.

he shows up every couple of weeks and posts things that are easily debunked, then stops posting about the things that have been debunked

he’s a shitposter that doesn’t care about how wrong he is

" okay... let me back up to before i even posted anything... because i want to make sure we are on the same page. i also dont want to put too much into a single post to make sure everything stays crystal clear.

1) timothy mcveigh was at gunshows passing out detailed information about feds to kill. has something like that happened recently that im not familiar with?

2) alternatively, are you guys saying threats on 4chan are the same thing (which is fine / i just dont equate them)?"


1) we have an example of a boogaloo shithead killing a fed already, no need to pass out info.
https://www.marketwatch.com/story/airman-charged-with-killing-federal-officer-in-oakland-tied-to-right-wing-boogaloo-movement-2020-06-16

2)Yes. Although I use 4chan loosely for all the “dark web” shitholes these people inhabit. Keep in mind the following list is from memory and some googling, hardly exhaustive:
Dylan Roof(Charleston church shooter)- posted hateful shit on 4chan, wrote a manifesto before his shooting
Christchurch, New Zealand shooter - posted on 8chan, wrote a manifesto
Pittsburgh, Tree of life synagogue shooter - posted hateful shit on gab
El Paso Walmart shooter - posted his manifesto on 8chan hours before shooting
Poway California synagogue shooter - posted a manifesto to 8chan

And on and on and on (I know I’m missing a shit ton of these).
You might view mass shootings as a different degree compared to a giant large scale bombing, but it’s really just a matter of time before one of these shitheads is successful at a bombing as well. It takes the same amount of hate to park a car bomb in front of a pre-school as it does to walk into a church and start blasting people with a rifle.
https://www.cnn.com/2019/11/22/us/colorado-synagogue-suspect-indicted/index.html

Also important to consider that 2018 was the deadliest year for right-wing related violence since McVeigh’s bombing:
https://www.adl.org/news/press-releases/right-wing-extremism-linked-to-every-2018-extremist-murder-in-the-us-adl-finds

I just think the threat is plain and right in front of us. It’s an extremely slippery and steep slope from our current hate filled environment to something that is much much much worse (hard to even think about).

I know you used quotes, but 4chan is absolutely not the dark web

Ok, does “dark web adjacent” work?

Eh.

Dark Web is meant to mean stuff you can't get to via normal browsers, not just page 2 of Google results. 4chan is in the top 2000 pages by traffic, so it's not really dark web or dark web adjacent.

I know it's just stupid semantics, but I hate when media sources constantly use the term incorrectly

Hmm, how about “relatively unmoderated message boards, where hateful shit isn’t just allowed but is a part of the board’s culture.”

(This def isn’t my area of expertise)

I’d also point out, I’m not even necessarily going as far as saying we should seek to deplatform all these message boards, only that we should take people saying hateful shit seriously. The FBI missing Mcveigh was seen as an intelligence failure, so should missing the next bombers hate messages on 8chan be viewed the same way.

I report, you decide.

If you want me to stick around, its your responsibility to keep me engaged and entertained. I don't have to respond to anything if it's not worth my time. And once the responses have devolved to personal attacks, I am not going to waste my time responding.

I find it hilarious that the woke movement is now coming for Jimmy Kimmel and Bill Simmons. Soon, people will learn that the woke mob will come for all. There is no hiding.

so you’re against having a diverse editorial board/staff?

Reading comprehension is your friend. Learn it. Love it.

Clearly, Kimmel is issuing a press release in response to nobody. There is no woke mob.

If all of you have to fear in life is maybe having to write a mealy mouthed apology about something, you've got it pretty good.

^^ were you aware of the editorial structure of the Ringer before the NYT piece?

calling advocates for diversity a mob isn’t the best look

remember that one time you freaked out about Simmons not wearing a tie during an interview with the president? if only you’d be more upset over a lack of diversity than that

What kind of psychopath concerns themselves about the "editorial structure" of an outlet that primarily discusses movies from the '80's and re-doing NBA drafts? Like, you got it pretty good if that is your biggest concern, which apparently for a lot of people it is.

And thank you for going back to look up a joke post from 8 years ago about a topic I don't even remember happening. You are clearly one of the psychopaths I am talking about above.

being empathetic for others is kind of the exact opposite of what a psychopath is, fyi

the piece could’ve been written about the vast majority of media companies. it just happened to be about Simmons and the Ringer.

it is not psychopathic behavior to strive for diversity. especially diversity at the top.

the fact that you went with psychopath to describe that need is telling.

Facebook had to lose $7 billion in advertising $ to get rid of a few boogaloos.

Not enough.

I made an account to see what it's like and it's exactly what you'd think. They promote the founders' accounts along with some other Republicans and then it's just a bunch of hot garbage everywhere.

Yale educated lawyer, Senator and noted seditionist Josh Hawley whined about the same thing when Simon & Schuster cancelled his book deal.

I'm still not sure what these people think will happen if Section 230 is repealed.

I don’t think it’s really a matter of the politicians and media members not knowing what is and isn’t freedom of speech. I think they truly just don’t care that they misrepresent what it is...they’ll say it because it’s catchy, their supporters/listeners/fans will buy it and that’s all that matters. It fits their narrative and that’s all that matters.

Edit: the people in comments sections may really be that dumb. I was referring to dumbasses like Hawley crying about freedom of speech.

Also relevant. Apple threatens to remove Parlor (Parler?) from their App Store of changes aren’t made.

Another edit: seeing a lot of “removing public figures’ platform is authoritarian!” I didn’t realize a private company could be authoritarian.

Quote :
"Parler, a social network used to plan the storming of the U.S. Capitol last week, has been hit by a massive data scrape. Security researchers collected swaths of user data before the network went dark Monday morning after Amazon, Google, and Apple booted the platform.

The scrape includes user profile data, user information, and which users had administration rights for specific groups within the social network."
Quote :
"... the scrapped posts are linked to accounts that posted them, and some of the video and image data have geolocation information. That is said also to include data from Parler's 'Verified Citizens,' users of the network who verified their identity by uploading photographs of government-issued IDs, such as a driver’s license."
Quote :
"The data scrape includes deleted posts, meaning that Parler stored user data after users deleted it."
Quote :
"... the scrape was made possible due Twilio, an American cloud communications platform that provided the platform with phone number verification services, cutting ties with Parler.

In a press release announcing the decision, Twilio revealed which services Parler was using. This information allowed hackers to deduct that it was possible to create users and verified accounts without actual verification.

With this type of access, newly minted users were able to get behind the login box API used for content delivery. That allowed them to see which users had moderator rights and this in turn allowed them to reset passwords of existing users with simple 'forgot password' function. Since Twilio no longer authenticated emails, hackers were able to access admin accounts with ease."
