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...

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.
/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.
/v/ is completely unmoderated

Hey, remember when I made a thread requesting mod support because there were never less than 2 off-topic threads on /v/ at any given time?
WELL NOW IT'S 5
I have refreshed several times, and EVERY GOD DAMNED TIME there are at least 5 off-topic, shitposting, or blatant troll threads on the front page, every one of which has at least 100 replies, some of them more than 400.
/v/ isn't even moderated at all, is it? No one gives a fuck about it, they're decided that it's going to die. The /b/tards have taken over, and there's no salvaging it now. WELL GUESS WHAT? If we don't control this shit, and control it fast, they're not going to be satisfied with just /v/. I'm already seeing them flood over to /co/, and I don't even know how bad it is on other boards.
This is fucking unacceptable. Delete the threads, start handing out bans for replying to them, and make sure that the newfags know that this won't be fucking tolerated. I don't want this to go full-fucking-totalitarian, but I honestly don't see any other way to get this under control.

Why does 4chan have mods and janitors? They're useless.

4chan has really been a place about being able to say (pretty much) anything you want. We're the underbelly of the internet, and we have boards where people post gore, porn, and some of the other worst things people have to offer. And yet, we have these mods and janitors here telling us we can't say certain things. Does it even really matter?
On topic specific boards (/mu/, /sp/, /v/, etc.) people get so upset when people post off-topic things, but does it really need to be removed? If those users don't like it, there are tons of other websites devoted to only their topics (/tg/ can go to D & D forum, /sp/ can go to ESPN forums) if they don't like it. It's not necessarily that people should overrun a board with nothing but shitposting, but having some offtopic discussions is good, especially with other people with like-minded ideas.
Then there's the actual mods and janitors. They are horrible irregular in their thread deleting if they do delete something (which they shouldn't). They'll leave one off-topic thread but delete other new ones that pop up, as if the other one is special. But mods and janitors shouldn't delete any threads. Just leave them be, there's a reason they exist: because people want to talk about it, or just goof off for a little bit. The only thing mods and janitors should delete are the global 'no' list (CP, porn on SFW boards, etc.).
In a perfect 4chan, mods and janitors only delete threads with multiple reports, or threads on the 'no' list.
And yes, I know this is just some guy on the internet complaining on 4chan. But a 3 day ban for posting about tripfags? That's technically board related talk as it relates to the board and who is on it. The mods do an awful job of handing out bans and deleting threads, and I don't think an answer of "well we'll do an effort to delete everything!" would be good. I think it should be the exact opposite.
Everyone else here agree?
Failed Captcha and pass ads.

These two should have no relation. I'm sick of seeing a page of red-text every time I fuck up a letter in a uber-scrambled captcha, and I'm not buying a pass.
Can't a failed captcha just bring you back to the page, keep your post, and give a header explaining you derped the captcha, then maybe add "Avoid the captcha with a 4chan pass" in the same header, if you really need to spam them so much?
Didn't you dislike the idea of passes in the first place moot?
