I'm permabanned on my office PC with a static IP for posting a link in /iq/ to some pointless fuckabout website. I'd complain, because it was definitely within a standard deviation of the average thread quality of /iq/, but I've actually gotten something like four chapters of my thesis written since.
Thanks, shape-shifting reptilians, you stopped me from being as much of a silly sausage.

Slightly off topic, but I am on a work computer. I noticed 5 separate posts on /sentry/ from different parts of Malaysia.
This is of interest to me as I will be in Malaysia over the next couple of weeks. I will be fucking busy, but was wondering whether .gs will be available to me.

Could the m0dz please stop locking so many threads? If it's vacuous trash reminiscent of the other place fair enough, but just because the OP of >>/b/398357 is a pathetic excuse for an adult doesn't mean the entire thread needs to shut down. We're not being actively damaged by discussing the matter. Then again it did belong in /emo/ anyway. Point is, if you think about it, posters being twats have resulted in some of the most entertaining events in the history of .gs.
(A good day to you Sir!)
|>>|| No. 13562
I'm of the school of thought that you need discourse to create stimulation. If when someone posted something everyone agreed with it, although that is a good post the conversation comes to a halt pretty rapidly and offers no new knowledge, or experience. The thread you mentioned being a good example of a view which creates discourse.
|>>|| No. 13563
If you stop dodging wordfilters and put your threads in the correct boards, we'll stop locking them and banning you.

>posters being twats have resulted in some of the most entertaining events in the history of .gs.
Twats like bike thief and crab killer or wonks like ambulancelad and the lad who freaked out because his mum asked him to order a takeaway and he didn't know how had a certain level of gravitas or endearment.
The OP of that thread was just an arseclown.
|>>|| No. 13565
It needs to be said, regardless of the arseclownery of the OP as that isn't what he was banned for; wrongthink is not a punishable offence, if he had posted on /emo/ the thread would have been left alone. /emo/ threads go in /emo/ not /b/, it's as simple as that.

This is true to a point, but I think it's a slipper slope and before you know it you have Nepali cunts spamming pie threads and telling everyone how they are are posting from Nepal.
|>>|| No. 13567
Your wordfilters are shite, and I haven't started a thread in months, let alone in the wrong board. Anyway I do have things to do today so maybe a day off of .gs would do me good, cheers m@dm8s

What do you call a Nepalese man wearing a warm indoor shoe?
A slipper slope
(My apologies for posting that in /shed/)
|>>|| No. 13576
That happens to me, too. I decided to put up with it as the mobile networks were routinely used to post CP spam. It's a pain in the arse but I'd rather wait until I get home to post than risk more CP being posted.
|>>|| No. 13578
Yes, unless you have a better solution?
"din" whoever you are, if you know what posts in /x/ are child pornography then you should probably report them for deletion instead of bragging about it on a connection that can be traced back to you personally. Moron.

Please, if you know or suspect a post to be of child pornography, report it for deletion rather than making yourself complicit in the viewing and production of it. Or rather than being a complete nutcase.
|>>|| No. 13580
I'm just saying how do you know that IP is going to be used to post CP forever and ever? I presume the posters of it are smart and dedicated enough to realise they need to change IPs frequently, even if they could somehow hold onto a single mobile network IP for themselves - and we know that they can't because I got assigned it today.
>making yourself complicit in the viewing and production of it
Oh please don't try and scare us with this pseudolegal nonsense. By this logic, reporting it would be essentially sending you evidence you could pass onto the police that we have, in fact, viewed it and reproduced it on our screen, so it would actually be against our own interests to do so.
(A good day to you Sir!)

>reporting it would be essentially sending you evidence you could pass onto the police that we have, in fact, viewed it and reproduced it on our screen, so it would actually be against our own interests to do so
This is truth. The only sensible thing to do if you see CP is browse away and tell nobody.
|>>|| No. 13582
The site would record that you viewed it and didn't report it, making you complicit in its distribution.
|>>|| No. 13583
Just because a hyperlink for an image was visited doesn't mean that the content was actually displayed on the screen.
|>>|| No. 13585
I don't see how that could possibly be the mens rea and actus reus, that would mean that if someone set up an enormous poster in a public place of kiddy fiddling everyone who viewed it would be guilty of viewing child porn. That is of course assuming people are even aware they are seeing child porn. which I assume in most of the instances that would occur on britfags and not cleaned up immediately would be where people reasonably assumed they were over 18.
|>>|| No. 13586
The press don't care about things like mens rea. As far as they're concerned the police have nicked a wrong'un, and he's trying to weasel his way out of it.
|>>|| No. 13587
The example you give is different, because it's only the person who made and distributed the poster that is guilty of an offence. As >>13583 and >>13584 have said, in this case when we're discussing "viewing" images, we are (I think) referring to the offence "making" an indecent image, which precedent has held includes "causing an image to appear on a screen". So by loading the page in your browser, you have caused the image to appear on your monitor and thus have "made an indecent image". Plus of course the file in your cache counts as possession.
The people looking at the poster, by contrast, have neither made nor possess the image in any legal sense of those words.
|>>|| No. 13588
>So by loading the page in your browser, you have caused the image to appear on your monitor and thus have "made an indecent image".
This is such a load of bollocks. Not you claiming it, but that this is the way things are.
|>>|| No. 13589
This interpretation was dreamt up as a specific anti-loophole for a case of someone who had deliberately visited a site and deliberately viewed the images, but deliberately disabled caching in the browser. It came around the same time that people were openly calling individuals working at ISPs "child pornographers in chief". I think it may have been the same case that prompted the swift creation of an exemption for law enforcement.
|>>|| No. 13590
No doubt the Masons had something to do with that. Tracing the board? More like tracing the outline of the dead, nonced child while on the phone to the Grand Master confirming if he was, indeed, accounted for all Saturday night.
Oh, wait. This is a ban appeal thread in /shed/. What a silly sausage I am.

Sir! the fact that the right honorable shape-shifting reptilian, who I assumed banned me. Had made clear it was a 'definite would' in their mind, implies it is not the issue that I had taken it out of my trousers. If anything it appears the issue was that I hadn't!

I would assume so, but the ban had expired by the time I saw your comment earlier today so I'm not sure why you mind - unless it was removed.
Don't most sausages look phallic?
Judging by image related, you got off lightly.

You'll have to clue me in, shape-shifting reptilians. What's 'tedious and /pol/ about discussing the protests about the 'male and pale' BAFTAs, especially in light of similar protests/controversy about the Oscars and Grammys?
Now if I'd posted something inflammatory or you thought we're mindless racists then I could sort of see where you'd be coming from, but I hope neither of those were the case. Then again, I have heard that at least one shape-shifting reptilian is overzealous in respect of shutting down debate they don't like.
|>>|| No. 13611
>Why is it only black people who seem to take umbrage at this and is this just going to keep going?
|>>|| No. 13612
In my opinion that's not inflammatory and that certainly wasn't my intent if that's how you feel. It's a genuine curiosity as to why it only seems to be black people who complain over this. I'm quite naïve when it comes to race.
Besides, I think you should trust the rest of the user base to call me out if I'm being out of line rather than stifling the discussion altogether. Please don't permaban EE again.
|>>|| No. 13613
>I have heard
What is it about this particular phrase that pretty much guarantees that the proceeding sentence will be conjecture and that the poster wont cite their sources?
|>>|| No. 13616
Just my tuppence's' worth, but It sounds like you want Carte Blanche to bait the user base and start flame wars, not create discussion like you claim. Are you that mentalistlad we keep hearing about?
The shape-shifting reptilians exist specifically to stop shit like that from happening, or at least ideally they do, so in deleting a thread which leads with "Why are blacks so thin skinned?" what are they doing that is draconian or oppressive? That certainly doesn't imply constructive discussion to me.
Have a fucking whinge there, cuz.
|>>|| No. 13619
It'll be elsewhere on /shed/. I think there's been at least two or three occasions, but the most notorious one was when the entire EE network was permabanned because someone posted an innocuous link about an Asian child grooming gang in the Rotherham thread, which certainly wasn't offensive in any way and simply stated the facts. IIRC the shape-shifting reptilian's justification was that someone else was being racist, which was true because they ended up having a massive teary over it, so all debate must be silenced because of patterns of posts.
I see your point. I'm not the mentalist but I was probably a bit rash and didn't think through how I'd worded the thread. Honesty, I wasn't trying to start a cunt-off over race.

There's no infighting. If there was I'd have already challenged him to a duel.
|>>|| No. 13642
Well this is annoying as I definitely wasn't posting from a proxy, as a simple whois lookup of the IP in question would have revealed. At least two posts of mine were deleted too; although if this is some kind of hatchet job I would have preferred that to be made clear in the ban message rather than the ineffectively nebulous 'Proxy'.

I would say something about "30 degree heat" but I'd hate to be tarred with the same brush as HongKongLad.

I don't understand why you think a WHOIS result can indicate the absence of a proxy server.
|>>|| No. 13648
I guess because most proxies are hosted on servers not on home internet ISP ranges. That said, a simpler way to prove the absence of a proxy server would be a simple port scan. I wonder if this was an automated ban because I have to reset my ADSL router three or four times a day.
That wasn't a deflection, it was a joke about it being hot but not wanting to moan/brag (delete as appropriate) about it. Brazil's a pretty big country but up here in the north-east it's bloody hot, and will continue to be until about April when it'll be slightly less hot but a hell of a lot rainier.
|>>|| No. 13649
You are greatly over estimating what a whois lookup is capable of revealing to a non-native about a foreign IP range.
I've seen you posting from Brazil for a while now and you've not really done anything ban worthy, however I can't whitelist your IP as that is an admin level function and your ban will need to remain in place as The Wall is effectively up for the foreseeable future.
Anyone else looking to post from a foreign IP will have to get whitelisted by an admin as we've had more child porn posted. Sorry folks, blame the arseholes who post this shit.
|>>|| No. 13650
Over a dozen IPs from actual proxies were banned in the last 24 hours. You were included in that because you were posting from a remote location during the spate. That's all.

Totally understandable, no one wants CP on here. Just checked banned.php and I seem to be unbanned again so cheers lads.

Not him but wondering what >>/e/21412 was banned for? I see nothing spelling and grammar-wise and the post itself is of course a Day Today reference.
|>>|| No. 13671
In the Europe thread somebody has been banned for the Americanisation in the spelling of defence I presume, but you've done nothing to:
A) The lad accusing everybody of dolphin rape (although I can understand you leaving this if perhaps just to let him be entitled to his opinion).
B) The lads completely shitting it up by talking like edgy 'lEL So Randumb XD' 15 year olds about babies and how well they like them done.
I'm just wondering why the discrepancy?
|>>|| No. 13672
No one reported any of the other posts. Even if they did there is no guarantee we'd have done anything.
It's not our job to police people's opinions, despite a few mentalists claiming otherwise which is no secret, so from that point forward it's not a massive leap of logic to assume either we didn't see it or we consider bad spelling and grammar tantamount to posting Child Pornography.
Perhaps, we don't even care. Delete as applicable to fit your own personal bias. Why do you care?
|>>|| No. 13673
>Why do you care?
Not them, but people resent what they consider unfair treatment, particularly by those with power.
|>>|| No. 13674
>Why do you care?
It'd be nice if the website owners (for which I am genuinely grateful for providing this website) would perhaps not waste their time being supercilious about spelling and perhaps stop people turning threads into the equivalent of 'the other place', as people post random videos of babies and talk shit about how they like the colour of different races of baby.
Just seems to take away from the content and seems ridiculous, as ridiculous as this place can be, that you'd ban somebody over a letter difference but not ban people posting absolute drivel about cooking babies in a thread about the EU referendum.
It makes it hard to read actual content and discourages proper posting.
Perhaps you don't care, but I just don't understand why you'd care about spelling but not grossly childish behaviour, of which I'm inclined to believe is far worse than any Americanisation in spelling that comes as part of an effort to contribute.
Just my two pence. Maybe I shouldn't care, particularly if the shape-shifting reptilians are just the 'we do what we want with the power aren't we quirky' type.
|>>|| No. 13677
>Delete as applicable to fit your own personal bias.
Facetiousness a virgin concept, lad?
|>>|| No. 13678
It's not a problem with babies, it's just utter shit when people are acting like teenagers saying how they like their babies more cooked, in a thread where we're trying to talk about the EU referendum. I just don't get it.
This place prides itself on having a culture unlike 4chan some days but then defends those very same characteristics the others.
(A good day to you Sir!)
