I have nothing against Waifu threads. But Rose threads bring another level of creepy. These threads have been banished from most of 4chan, but they are still found on /b/.
In these threads, they try to find her address and other personal details. One person claims to have found it, and was spamming it. One of the regular posters, named King, posts pictures of himself cutting his arms. It's very bloody, and it shows the kind of person who stalks Rose.
She's going to end up dead, or raped at this point. And it will be planned on 4chan.
Returning A Board We Abandoned

We should bring back the loli board, simply because 4chan has become so popular we do not need to fear google taking down our search results. We are popular enough, people want it, its still on /b/, I cannot see why we even let another website, even google, tell us what we can have on our website, at the time I was mortified. I am completely open to discuss reasons for this with anyone, especially mods, as to why or why not to bring it back, I'm curious as to why we don't already have it back. I could understand if we put a warning before entering the page (which we should do for NSFW boards anyway) telling people what to expect.
We went from the image in this post...
/b/ steam begging threads.

Really, There's no point to them, They are annoying, they (like the MLP threads before /mlp/ serve no real purpose.
My writing this is at times there's four or more active (I had personally witnessed this about two hours ago.) it's an hourly occurrence to see a new one pop up. sometimes there will be two or 3 active, and some blathering idiot will still feel it's necessary for them to make a whole new thread to beg for the game they want for free.
I know nobody cares about /b/ and it's really the board where everyone kind of just dumps their trash, but shouldn't they count as /r/ threads? (and thus be kept in /r/) as they are requesting
TL;DR: steam threads are fucking annoying, ban them or point them towards /r/
TL:DFR: if you can't read that bit of text you don't belong on the internet, let alone to an intelligent species.
To keep it a semi-respectful topic, how do you feel about these threads?
I'm willing to bet half the time the threads are started, someone is recording all the steam ID's posted, to try and make a mass account steal.
Regarding the rules of /soc/

I've been noticing recently a lot of users being banned for asking for contact details after the girl has replied with them.
Forgive and correct me if I'm wrong, but that rule is there to protect people from being harassed, but, if they're completely comfortable with it to the point that they're giving out their contact details, then I don't see why the user should be banned.
I'm not saying that the rule should be removed or amended, the last thing I want to see is a bunch of, "hey bb, deets plz" or, people feeling like they're being harassed, the rule is there for a reason, and it's a good rule; but today I saw a guy get banned at the end of a thread for asking for a girl's contact details, which she was more than happy to provide to him. In my eyes that user shouldn't have been banned, it's breaking the letter of the rule, but not the spirit, which I think is important.
It's just my suggestion that I think that it should be a valid appeal to such a ban that she did in fact provide her contact details with a screenshot as proof or something.
In the words of another anon in that thread, "It's /social/ not /peepshow/"
A discussion on /d/

I mentioned this in other threads, but I did want to discuss it in a single thread proper.
I'm not one to usually go 'things were better back when X was this way' or whatever. Boards change, visitors change. Nostalgia is a crutch rather than a solution. But it is for that reason that I have to say that /d/ really needs a reevaluation of its structure and response. Currently, the board is experiencing problems, not trolls or overbearing fans, though we have a couple. Just problems that seem to be feeding tension on the board between fetishes, problems that have fed false solutions or ideas of what /d/ is.
Right now, there's discussion of 'futa spam' on /q/. For those out of the loop, futa is a popular fetish on /d/, and continues to get more popular. Almost that it seems to be getting crowded on /d/, and some have said it's getting out of control. Now, that may be trolls, that may be actual belief, but the problem is it's not true, it is a problem with perception. /d/ has a lot of futa threads, but if it were spam, then why is /d/ rarely at maximum thread count? How come pages 9 and 10 can be empty without any invasions?
The answer is that futa isn't invading. Futa is more popular, as other alternative fetish threads have been dying off. And, these threads are dying off based on policies that feed their fandom's abandonment of /d/.
