Hello mods and users!
I have a massive issue here on my hands. I browse and contribute to 4chan because its pretty much the last online place where I can truely be anonymous and say out my still raw houghts, or discuss things that are way too intimate or personal for me to permanent them online, given the ever-loosening privacy legislations. I dont want my future local police station reading about 'HURR, DURR, TRANNY PERN IS AWESUME DEATH TO ALL INFIDELS JIHAD JIHAD AN HERO ADALIA ROSE CAN SUCK MUH D***'.
When privacy is of such omportance, why is it that my IP has to be associated with CP when in fact I was uploading gore (which I precieve to be legal in the US as I browse many such sites like rotten.com where the picture came from, documentingreality.com etc.).
>I mean why does the 4chan-system brand your IP with CP when in fact it isnt sure what it was!?!
I contacted a mod clearifying the b& and he told me to include the picture, but made we wait ONE MONTH which is still running. Why does my IP have to be associated with CP for ONE MONTH before i MAY clarify it ???(!)
>inb4 rizon, there is not one bloody person on that site and it is way too complicated to get on btw
Wrote this from a friends IP.
On "containment boards"

"Containment boards" or "quarantine boards". We all know the theory behind them. Make a board for trash that keeps infesting other boards, so it'll all stay in one board. But does it actually work? We all just assume it works without really thinking about whether it actually does. I'd like to start a debate as to whether the theory of "containment boards" isn't flawed in practice.
Take /pol/ for instance. Get the political junk out of other boards; sounds good. But it hasn't been working, has it? Every day on /v/ I find a feminism thread that has only a token relation to video games, if even that much. Nobody I know actually enjoys these threads; they only participate because it makes them angry and when you're angry you have an urge to reply. No one "enjoys" feminism threads anymore than one "enjoys" being addicted to a drug. So why aren't they all in /pol/ where they belong? A thread we had on /q/ awhile back provides a clue--people were discussing whether "redpill" threads should be allowed by the mods. These threads are concerted efforts by the denizens of /pol/ to spread their /pol/itics to other boards under the guise of topics with token relation to the board's topic. I don't know how many really participate, but I can say for those that do, /pol/ is no "containment board"--quite the opposite, it provides a place for them to get organized and a base of operations to which they can draw in more like-minded individuals.
proxy server bans

I use a VPN to post on 4chan (hotspot shield to be exact) because I cannot post on 4chan otherwise. For some reason my home IP is banned because of, I assume, some sort of area ban or range ban. so, as a result I am forced to use a proxy.
Up until recently I have had no problems using a proxy. However, since mods have been more active on the boards I post on it seems, I have been banned for using a proxy. that is the reason given in the ban message.
I guess what I am asking is this: could you guys be a little more careful about throwing out bans for proxy users? Not all of us are terrible people. Some of us are just forced to use VPNs.
and I would rather not buy the 4chan pass. if that's the only way to get around it.
sorry if there's a lot of errors I am posting from my phone because ibhave been banned on all my proxy addresses.

The Definition of "Shitposting"
15 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: Capture.png]
I was always under the impression that shitposting was, among other things, someone being an unnecessary asshole. However after lurking moar and looking it up (pic related), it seems like it might just mean a spammer, so for clarification, what does being a shitposter on 4chan entail?
How far will you let /b/ go?

I'm curious, so /b/ allows anything. Videos of animal abuse, some CP. How far are you willing to let be go? Is talking about raping and torturing children allowed too? I just really have a hard time understanding this, I guess as long as the law doesn't care anything goes right? Is it against the rules to report people posting gore and animal abuse videos?
If it is, I honestly don't see why you don't just say fuck it, and allow the truly sick and distirbed to visit there. It's not like it would matter to you anyways, just as it seems not to matter to you if these giggling idiots laughing at a dog being beaten, go out and beat a baby to death.
I'm sure the troglodytes will come, and have their laugh that they upset someone. There are great things about /b/, but you're letting it become a playground for sadists and future torture murderers. Can't ypu just give these degenerates their own board to play their sick little games in? Not even /b/ wants these quarter-brained crawling feral creatures.
Pokemon threads creeping onto /v/
6 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: WWII Fluffy.jpg]
As of late, there has been a problem with Pokemon threads making their way onto /v/. As /vp/ exists for Pokemon, I do my duty and report these threads. However, these always reach about 300+ posts before 404ing. I don't mean to be a party-pooper, but /vp/ needs the traffic as well as the fresh discussion. Most people have been scared away from /vp/, either by the old furry shitposting, the massive amount of continuous threads (Team Rocket, Wifi General, etc.), or the large clique of regulars (a majority of which use tripcodes). Can we have the mods and/or janitors look into this issue? As an old fan of /vp/, it's sad to see all the good discussion happen off-board while the same old threads that have been posted for months stagnate the board and the front page.
Feel free to give me your best shot. This may be very opinionated, but Pokemon outside of /vp/ is very much an issue.

Hi I am posting in regard to this thread:
Or cut short, the janitor has an overwhelmingly negative amount of feedback for the job he/she does.
Any threads that create meaningful, international discussion are stifled and deleted, however shitposting such as that which says which country is the worst, it's the uk, everbyody post UK lives on.
Is there some form of feedback we can provide because it just kills the board? What is the point in posting if it's just b with flags?
