Porn on /b/

Why the fuck is there so much goddamned porn on /b/? I know it's been like this forever, but come on. /b/ was meant for random, miscellaneous stuff, and it's hard to find those random, interesting things with porn clogging up the entire board 24-7. Shouldn't we have a board dedicated to dumping porn? Now I'm not saying /b/ should be safe for work, but it's getting annoying to see the same old shit fill up a board every day. It's kinda like when pokemon was all over /v/. Yes, it's vidya-related, but there was way too much of it shitting up the board, so pokemon got it's own board. Hell, it even feels like the reason why /vg/ was made: Massive threads about the same shit kept getting made on /v/, so moot made a board for those general megathreads in order to make one board for variety in gaming, and another for the mainstream, flavor of the month, "games everybody knows and plays" type of things. Lots of great, decent or quality threads get ignored, pushed away and auto-pruned due to everyone making and posting in the same old threads and it's obnoxious when you decide to make a nice, interesting, original thread but it hardly gets any replies.
The point is, when one type of board-related subject gets out of hand, it needs to either be removed or suppressed. Just like /b/ and anime, just like /a/ and weeaboo culture, just like /v/ and pokemon, just like vidya generals, and just like ponies shitting up the site.
Functioning of /f/ uploads

Thanks again Moot for fixing the Captcha "bug" on /f/. But here I'd like to rant and plea for a fix to the serious bug in uploading... of course there is a long expiration for files (4 days?) to prevent rapid-fire reposting of same material. However, the file is recordedd as uploaded and trips the timer whether it was actually uploaded and appears on-board, or not. If for any reason the upload fails, be it a missing tag or a cnnection time-out, it is recorded as "file already uploaded". There is no chance that you can get a mulligan and actually get the file up. I also noticed that a flubbed file apparently counts toward your 4-files-daily cap.
IS there any way this can be fixed so that only files that actually get on the board and are publicly viewable get counted? seems only reasonable, no?

Word-of-mouth from The Outside (see: outside the basement) is that normal people set goals. Let's play a game of pretend (not the sexy kind) and set some goals for /v/ as a whole:
[ ] Stop blindly accusing Reddit of everything. In fact, don't talk about Reddit at all; it's pretty much a "Now's our chance, boys!" for shitposters. We've also won every single game match against Reddit that wasn't rigged, so there's no reason to worry about Reddit's userbase merging with ours; they're actually pretty good sports, even if their site is disgusting.
[ ] When summer vacation starts, -do not- start whining about summer. Stupid people are year-round.
[ ] Ignore shitposting. The more you ignore it, the less attention the OPs of those threads will receive, and therefore the less they'll want to keep posting on /v/ to discuss their "feels". It's no excuse for mods not deleting shitposting despite multiple reports, but it's something.
[ ] Quit bawling about how threads aren't vidya. It can be assumed that every single person in those threads knows those threads aren't vidya.
[ ] Sage isn't used to express displeasure, even if that's how it's been used on /v/ in recent years.
[ ] Accept the healing power of Gabe Newell into your life.
[ ] Direct weaboos who think a katana is better than a broadsword or claymore to /a/ so they can cut down bamboo dummies with their carefully folded blades while knights laugh at them and slay dragons.
