Are we truly anonymous?

Can janitors and mods easily see our IP addresses?
As in, to janitors we are not anonymous, they can remember our IP and put a face to us, they can see past all our bullshit, our lies, our bad sides and ugly sides?
Can this janitor use this information to easily doxx us?
I just want to know if you only use the information of your users for legal purposes?
Filter tripcodes for everybody
7 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: url.png]
Here's a suggestion to dealing with shitposting tripfag ban evaders. We all know that hell banning is impossible on this site, but filtering is not. So why not, if they have a tripcode, just filter them for everybody on the site? We all know banning them isn't going to work, so this is an alternate solution. Sure, when they find out, they'll just get another tripcode, but this will delay them greatly, and not to mention that it will aggravate them when they try to post something and find out nobody responds. Filtering by yourself doesn't work, since the effect on the thread is noticeable even when you do have it on.
I'd like some moderator input on this and if this can be done. You mods must know what problems some certain users are causing currently.

Ok /q/, I have a question, and it might sounds stupid, but I'd be interested if anyone had any real insight
Is there any real info on what sort of information 4chan logs about it's users and how long it is kept? I know when moot went to court it was presented that 4chan keeps some sort of access record for when people post, but the extent of what it was and what info it held was never made clear.
do you think it would be possible to subpoena your own records, and if os, what would be in it? Or do you think that posts truly are gone when they fall off the back end as moot has said?
Change /gd/ to /dm/

I like /gd/, I think so far it's going great, but I feel like restricting it (in name at least) to Graphic Design is holding it back. Already I feel like at least maybe ~10% of the threads are about web development (if not more) and designers are generally multi-faceted dudes who know about more than simple graphic design. A lot of designers will know front/back-end web, video, animation, 3D etc. on top of standard print design and there's a wealth of knowledge out there waiting to be shared if you can give it the forum.
I know we already have /3/ and I think the members of that community are happy to be left to their own devices but I propose turning /gd/ into /dm/ - Digital Media, a place where we can discuss all things related to digital design.
Is there any chance of this happening? What was the rationale behind creating /gd/ in the first place? Was there a reason it was limited to Graphic Design?
The worst of /b/

Somehow I can't stop going to /b/. I know we don't expect /b/ to be anything except shit, but I'm going to gripe anyway.
You know what the worst two things on /b/ are?
- Fap roll threads. What the fuck? There is always multiple threads of this up at all times. Why? Why do people need someone to decide their masturbation material for them? Just how much of a drooling retard do you have to be to participate in this shit?
- XX names my pipe/bong. When did this become a thing? Who the fuck names their drug paraphernalia anyway? Do they tell their friends what their piece's name is? "THIS IS MY PIPE, ITS NAME IS BARRY THE BUMRAPER, HURRRR!" I absolutely cannot fathom why you would do this.
I know I'm an idiot for getting worked up about this, but the banality of it all is just so maddening. I wish moot would come and string up a few people who post these threads.
Sorry for posting this pointless twaddle, I just had to vent.
Threads visible on multiple boards
4 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: 7.png]
I just thought of something that would be interesting. What if when you posted a thread it gave you an option to make the thread you're posting visible on up to 3 different boards so if the content of your thread is odd and could go on 2-3 different boards, you have that option? Like, for say, if I wanted to post a thread about Tony Hawk Underground 2 on /v/, I could also make that thread visible on /asp/. Or if I wanted to make a thread about movies based off books, I could make the thread visible on /lit/ and /tv/?
/pol/ is AIDS, /pol/ is CANCER.

This site is doomed. If /pol/ would just stop screaming about SRS and JIDF, if /pol/ would stop false flagging and shitposting as SRS and JIDF, if /pol/ would stop wasting their time putting together shoddy pastebins and infographics, there would be no SRS or JIDF. JIDF supposedly tweeted about /pol/ over 1 year ago. It is a web site run by one fat dude with a handful of volunteers. It is a thoroughly amateur operation that mostly focuses on facebook. SRS is a Reddit phenomenon. They are a glorified liberal downvoting crew and there has never been VERIFIABLE proof that they are raiding /pol/ or any other board.
For all the newfags: SRS exists. JIDF exists. They do not raid this site or have a sizable presence on 4chan at all though. /pol/ just loves role playing as them. None of them have ever been mods or janitors. None of them are doing shit here, because there are much bigger fish to fry and it would be utterly futile. Everyone here, outside of the more plebeian /pol/sters, is aware of this. If you see threads complaining about SRS or JIDF, sage, report and hide. It is the best thing you can do for 4chan, as discussion about it has basically become spam at this point.
Mark my words: If /pol/ was removed, you would see no sign of JIDF or SRS after a few months, because /pol/ is JIDF and SRS. A few /pol/fags might head over to StormChan and try to organize a few fail raids, but they'll eventually be drowned out by the masses. Problem solved.
They are the forum sliders. They are the JIDF, they are the SRS. They are the cuckold spammers. They are the cancer.
