I'm really getting tired of this non-stop bollocks about the storms in the US. Why is it being given so much coverage? 24-hours "speaking to you live from Florida." I don't really care. I'm watching Italian news now, because they aren't part of America yet.

https://www.theguardian.com/books/2017/sep/06/uk-publishing-industry-remains-90-white-survey-finds

A survey of more than 1,000 people working in UK publishing has found that more than 90% currently in the industry classify themselves as white British.

Carried out between June and July, the bookcareers.com salary survey received 1,023 valid responses. The vast majority of respondents – 84.6% - were female, and more than nine in 10 (90.4%) were white British. Four years ago, when research was last conducted, 81.8% of respondents were female, and 93.7% were white British.
Publishing risks 'becoming irrelevant', warns Penguin Random House boss

“I think publishers have been very proactive in trying to encourage diversity … in their companies,” said bookcareers.com’s Suzanne Collier, pointing to Penguin Random House and Hachette as leaders in this field. “But it is going to take a long time for this to take hold, and until that figure is reduced to about 60/40 we have not got true diversity.”

Yes that’s what it said (you should probably read posts before replying to them), actually what it said was,84.6 percent of the respondents to the survey were women, It's unclear if there is a gender bias here in likeliness to respond but since it was considered good enough to presume the representation of ethnicity, let's presume it is accurate for gender too.

This is great! Surely silly just to call it the Pidgin Service when it only serves West Africa though, aren't there many types of pidgin spoken around the world?

West African pidgin is the most widely-used pidgin by a huge margin and is known locally as simply "pidgin". The vast majority of other pidgin languages have fewer than 100,000 speakers and most have distinctive names. It's somewhat ambiguous, but it's not really an issue in practice.

Not >>25778, but it's not really correct to say that 4chan always had the degree of far-right, white supremacist toxicity that runs through it today. In 2004 when I first found it (during my regrettable anime phase) it still had a strong Japanophile streak, and many/most of the threads were anime/manga/Japanese videogame-related, or at least would contain references to that kind of content in the form of image macros. White nationalism and far-right politics were certainly not regular topics. Even as the site developed and became less Japan-centric, /b/'s raids included a notorious white supremacist (Hal Turner, if you want to look it up).

The overarching philosophy of the time was that, irrespective of who you were and what you believed, taking yourself too seriously was a crime punishable by trolling, which sort of went out the window with Project Chanology and was absolutely absent with the rise of more serious racist discussion, eventually culminating in mass support for Trump and the alt-right movement. /pol/ had certainly always had racists, neo-Nazis etc, but they didn't own the place.

That's my memory of it, albeit anecdotal and no doubt skewed to my perspective.

I found it in 2006 from Encyclopædia Dramatica, and while the racism was ironic, it was definitely there.

I'm sure it has been brought up before but Banksy work is a load of derivative shite that I want the press to start ignoring.

It's not like he even innovates, it's just the same tedious A-level work he was doing in the 00s. Wowzer! Community decay, sinister technology and the police state - what will he think of next? Perhaps he could smear his shit on the wall in the shape of a CCTV camera outside a playground and we can all go have a think about technology.

>>25778
I agree with the other lads about /pol/ but 4chan has always had an undercurrent of toxic negativity in my experience. It depends on what you mean but it's one thing that separates imageboard culture from other places.

The problem is of course that /pol/ has leaked absolutely everywhere and I suspect a big part of that has been shitposting for a reaction now that teenagers are posting from smartphones.

I've been using one of the hobby boards on and off up until even now but while the /pol/ stuff has been a visible presence, it feels like three or four months ago it reached new heights where it has mostly stayed. Maybe I'm losing it to paranoia but it gives me a strong impression of being an organised effort by an organised group intentionally pushing an agenda.

Just dawned on me that I don't really include .gs when I lament that imageboards as a whole have become tedious wank that I only use (and even then, generally just as an ersatz blog to organise my thoughts) because I'm too much of a social retard to have my past posts following me. The worst part of /pol/ isn't even the racism, or the repetitiveness. It's how painfully obvious it is when you're talking to a child. I mean, 4chan has always been full of children, but you get into an argument and you suddenly realize that it's pointless. It's not like before, there's no fun in it. These are different children, children with a different outlook and mindset. That's not to mention 8ch, which is a poorly managed shitshow with a few novel boards and a tendency to recall Gamergate as though it was a serious, culture-defining moment. I've got a /pol/itical idea: Bring on the zero child policy.

Regular forums seem to have died a death, so there's no real alternatives anyway. Reddit is a formatting nightmare, acrobat likewise, Twitter is sort of kind of vaguely briefly tempting but too obvious in being a timesink.

I've surprised myself that, besides here, facebook community groups have become my replacement for forums. They're usually extremely specific (I'm a member of the Skoda Octavia VRS Mk1 group, for example) but there's often a few hundred active members, and since you're not anonymous it feels a little more grown up.

Based on your picture I looked into what 'BUGS buddy' is. and I have to say I was disappointed. All it is is a series of txt docs that tell you to say "I'm not a racist YOU'RE anti-white" to 'win' arguments hardly cutting edge psy-ops. I don't think the world has anything to fear.

If I go to sleep at nine or ten o'clock I inevitably wake up at about midnight or one-ish. It's properly annoying, and even to stay up that "late" I'll be knodding off by eight. I don't know what's going on but it's been like this whenever I try to sleep right and it's doing my head in.
