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.

Moot I have a question: What was the reasoning behind both /mlp/ AND rule 15?
No no no, I'm asking to get rid of them or trying to start some big stupid debate. I'm just curious why you implemented both measures at the same time when they seem to be redundant.
I mean, why not just have rule 15, but have it confined to /co/ instead of a new board? I know you've spoken out against niche boards before and there already was a 24/7 general there.
Conversely, why not just /mlp/? There were already global rules like 3, 6, 10 and 13 that's supposed to spam and shit posting, regardless of the content or the board its done on, so rule 15 seems needlessly redundant.
You've never had an accompanying global rule regarding a new board before, so I'm just curious what your reasoning behind these two measures in tandem.
