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.

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

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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'.

|>>|| No. 13645
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.

|>>|| No. 13679
Presumably, those lads who started talking about bug chasing in a completely unrelated thread, starting one of our most endemic and beloved site jokes, should have been banned for being crass or arse-pisser banned for derailing an /emo/ thread about "How to dump my girlfriend?"
Take a step back from the computer and get some perspective, lad. You're being a tad histrionic.

Bad spelling/grammar's always been a bannable offense. I was the one that got banned and I wouldn't even have noticed it if I wasn't, I was knackered. Fair play. As for the others, just ignore the idiots and don't get baited. They can be stupid if they want.

Permbanned today from iq for daddies cummies thread.
Not really sure why , seemed like the level of copypasta crap /iq/ was designed for. Is the subject matter consider too sensitive or something?
|>>|| No. 13854
/iq/ you made the assumption of thinking is a) a shitposting board; it isn't, and b) thinking 4chan copy pasta was acceptable on this site. I'll unban you if you promise to think up your own shit jokes or life imitating /iq/ in the future.
If you act like an obnoxious 4chan immigrant, we'll treat you like one.
|>>|| No. 13855
I'd argue your interpretation of the nature of the acceptable content of Iq is painfully inaccurate mod lad, are you new here? Have 5 BROs ever even sent you a BROFIST? Bet use never been the stuff of britchan legend.
I wanna appeal to the purple head judge. And them to declare daddies getting cummies isn't finest high quality iq content. Then I'll accept it isn't. Because at the moment I feel like you are a child trying to tell a veteran of a war what life was like during it.

I'm not surprised, I'm not in the best of moods for getting permanent banned from all boards for what I perceive to be no good reason.
|>>|| No. 13860
I'm not any of the people involved so far, but continuing to argue about the legitimacy of the ban with such a patronising tone after being offered an unban doesn't seem like the smartest of moves.
|>>|| No. 13861
My reasoning is twofold, firstly a permban from the whole site for a post that wasn't to the mods taste in iq of all places is absurdly heavy handed.
Secondly a patronizing lecture on what should be in iq that isn't even accurate.
I feel stupid for even having to defend the post, but when I've been permbanned my options are protest, grovel or fuck off forever. I feel it was exactly in keeping with the tone and intentions of iq so I'm not going to grovel. At some point I will stop protesting and just fuck off forever. But not before letting it be known that I think this is absurd.
|>>|| No. 13863
Or put it another way lad pick any of your posts that seemed perfectly reasonable imagine getting permbanned for it and how you react.
|>>|| No. 13865
To be fair I thought /iq/ was a shitposting board. It's been described in the past as "a barrel of toxic waste bubbling quietly in the corner". I'm not going to pretend seeing some bollocks about cummies appear in star didn't irritate me but I thought the point of /iq/ was you could post pretty much anything without fear of a ban. I'm surprised to now learn /iq/ has standards of some description.
|>>|| No. 13866
That's some broken always reinforce the status quo logic you've got there.
In the eyes of unreasonable men. No. In the eyes of the average iq user on the other hand...
There is a post that plays "oh yes daddy" automatically a few pages down. I don't see how that or any other thread I could cherry pick from the back pages of iq, is acceptable and mine was a permban offence.
|>>|| No. 13868
Same. I found it quite disturbing the first time it was posted, but then it's /iq/ so fair game. It wasn't banned then so I'm not quite sure why it would be banned this time.
|>>|| No. 13869
It was reported, and so acted. You're not the only user of this site. We've had problems with paedos before, I don't make the rules and /iq/ isn't exempt from that particular one. If you'd been paying attention to your IP you'd have noticed I'd reduced it to a week pending your reaction to my chastisement.
You've done nothing to endear me towards trusting you so why should I?
|>>|| No. 13871
Feelings mutual. That's why I am appealing to higher powers. Also you might wanna keep your story straight as to why you banned me. Since apparently it was originally 4chanphobia now it's paedogeddon.

>We've had problems with paedos before, I don't make the rules and /iq/ isn't exempt from that particular one.

Get a grip, Stanfordprisonmodlad.
|>>|| No. 13873
Please don't pretend you're entitled to any sort of due process here. You won't grovel, and protest doesn't seem to be working out for you, given it's only making you sound even more of a bellend. What was that third option again?
Are you sure you don't want to reconsider grovelling?
|>>|| No. 13875
Listen to the grown ups. For the record, if I was to describe it and I hope this is the final word on the subject, /iq/ is self-referentially absurd, not a shitposting board.
If you don't have the savvy to understand and decipher the meaning and nuance of that, and therefore the content permitted, I'm happy for you to fuck off.

Oh okay so you were going to allow me to be a nonce on here as I didn't post anything that felt too much like a 4chan meme and cowed to your righteous rule. Is that what you are saying?
Bullshit. You are playing revisionst. If you honestly believe that, you would have stated it as a reason and not considered the appeal at all.

I assumed you were new, bans are a teaching method.

But 'their willing' is grammatically correct in every sense. I can see how they're would fit, but their also fits, because it shows possession and association of something. It is their willing (to do something).
No different from saying their car, their house, their desire, their willing.
Get it together, mod-lads.

I'm the person who reported you and I'm afraid you are not correct, the noun you are looking for is willingness. Thanks for playing!
For what it's worth, I personally think bans for grammar and spelling are overzealous, but fuck it, if I'm going to get banned for such a stupid thing then I might as well report everyone else out of spite.
|>>|| No. 13907
Please ban this cunt for:
A) reporting me and getting me banned when my post was grammatically correct.
b) Still insisting that it wasn't correct, when willing has been used for a long, long time, as evidenced by >>13906 .
What an annoying little cunt you are though. Have you really never heard of people showing willing? If there's one thing worse than a wrong cunt, it's a cunt whose wrong but supercilious due to the fact that they still think they're right.
(A good day to you Sir!)

>Have you really never heard of people showing willing?
Nope. Saying it must be correct because it's old can be used to justify all kinds of errors. We don't tolerate incorrect '-ize' spellings here, for instance.
And by the way:
>a cunt whose wrong

Not him, but I'm definitely going to take the word of some random bloke on the internet who hasn't heard of something over a printed dictionary. That definitely makes sense. Also, I've never heard of "whom" so that too must be wrong.
|>>|| No. 13913
But we were encouraged to "fight amongst ourselves"!
The word lol is in a printed dictionary. The word 'literally' with the meaning of 'figuratively' is in a printed dictionary. The use of both would be banned here. Printed dictionaries are clearly not infallible scripture.
And anyway, that was the question he asked me and I answered it. You shouldn't be having a go at me if you don't consider the question relevant.

While I'm in the ban thread, I was just banned for an hour for posting a 'blacklisted link', which was gmu dot edu. I was posting a link in the thread by the Kyrgyzstani lad to the Speech Accent Archive which is hosted on that domain because I thought it might help him. So why is this blacklisted?
|>>|| No. 13916
Brian (You know, the site) has a blacklist of links which have either been spammed in the past or are known to be high risk.

I posted a perfectly grammatically correct post and somebody reported it because they thought 'show willing' should be 'show willingness' for some reason.
The mod didn't pick up on this and banned me for using the wrong pick from 'they're/their' even though that was correct. I raised that in this thread and he said he wasn't paying attention when in reality he just made a mistake but was too up his own arse to admit it.
Some lad then said that he reported me over the 'show willing' comment and the mod, backtracking, has started to pretend that was the reason and that regardless of a common phrase, that has also been a fixture of the English language for hundreds of years and is not in anyway archaic, that only his special interpretation of the English language is allowed and the dictionary is full of shit.
TL;DR - Mod banned somebody over grammar despite it being correct and is having a teary about it and pretending he's the grammar expert, not the people who literally write the dictionary and is probably not as smart as he likes to think he is.
Feel free to throw another teary and ban me again, I'm not gonna come back (in before the 'haha don't come back then lol!' comments).

What are you on about? I unbanned you when you pointed out the ban was mistaken. It looks like you were given a very short ban for other reasons in the meantime, but that has expired or been removed. The only current bans are for the nepalese, spambots and something else.

Yeah, I banned him for being a shitehawk/using excessive verbiage and then having the bare-faced cheek to use whose instead of who's, which is simply not cricket.

Most people post from their phones, so you have the option of switching from mobile Internet to WiFi, or simply turning the WiFi off for a few minutes and turning it on again. No idea if you can do that with mobile internet, but I don't think the mods would want to blanket ban that for ban evasion because of the whole EE debacle.
Also, bans should start from the time the post is made rather than when the mods get around to actioning it.
|>>|| No. 13945
It was discussed as a planned feature but never implemented for the same reason as all the other good ideas never were.
It is possible to ban someone from all boards except /shed/ by ticking the box for each individual board instead of the "all boards" box but that's a pain in the arse and you have to remember not to tick the ones for the secret boards; purple told me off for failing to do that.
>Also, bans should start from the time the post is made rather than when the mods get around to actioning it.
They do. If you're banned for a day for a post an hour after it was made, it means the ban was an hour and a day.

Not either of them, but I'm curious as to what you think handing out two-week bans for obviously-jokey posts almost three months after the fact is supposed to achieve.

I hope you respect that I have waited for my ban to expire before I made this post.
But I feel like the pedophobia here is becoming a witch hunt.
Calling someone for making moral absolutist statements is not the same thing as promoting nonces. It was such an obvious point I was making that that someone else made the exact same point with the exact same example after my post was removed.
This post is obviously mostly fuelled by bitterness of being singled out for punishment, and I'd have prefer it was handled differently, but it failed as a deterrent and preventing conversation from moving in that direction anyway. I'd like that at the very least be considered in how to handle such situations in future. Even if the solution is just to delete a post and have a mod make a comment after to sign post to others "danger 'ere be dragons" that would stop the conversation heading that way anyway like it did this time.
Moan tickbox ticked for moan.

Mods are fallible humans and don't have as much time to spend on deciding whether or not to place a ban as you have while languishing and waiting for a ban to expire, going over and over why you feel it was unjust.

One, the whole argument about kiddie fiddling discussion is one we've been over many, many times so bigger bans get handed out for it because it's not as though you're likely to have not seen it before. Two, you're smart enough to get around the ban if you want to, so unless it's long, it's not much more than a temporary inconvenience.
|>>|| No. 14377
Honestly, the reason we ban anything that even sort of looks like pro paedoism is that there's a group of people who will jump on anything that looks like support for their cause, and it gets bad, quickly. You might've been caught in the crossfire,but it was for a reason.

I feel I was entirely justified in posting that. His insight was irrelevant to the discussion and entirely missed the jab at Americans obsessed with the Troubles from a distance - ironically himself engaging in whataboutism.
Why reddit? Because it was a worthless comment that would be seen on the popular website 'Reddit' to attract 'karma' in that smug undergrad confidence that desperately needs to be beaten down by the world. It is one of the reasons why the site does not work.
Furthermore, 'fresh off the boat'? Yeah, sure thing. I know you've always wanted to keep .gs tidy but I think you cocked up here.

Datalounge has a "Wit and Wisdom" feature where you can click "WW" on someone's post and they'll get a notification saying "1 person liked your post" or however many people liked it. It's just a nice feature and everyone's anonymous and only the poster can see how many likes it got so it doesn't lead to people posting lowest-common denominator stuff in a quest for likes. It's just nice to receive the notification or click "WW" when you'd only have something as inane to say as "lol" or "+1".
|>>|| No. 14451
That does sound nice. I don't feel like even a visible +1 here would pervert the posting styles of people, though that might just be me romanticising .gs again. Maybe something daft like getting a gold star after a decent number of votes would work, especially if the stars were really shite looking ones or 2nd class stamps.

On Today's Show: Human Dairylea Triangle with out of date "knowledge" attempting to discredit the show because he's
gay and impotentbanned from the chipshop; lie detector results after the break.
To answer your query more directly, imagine being stalked by a vulnerable lad, who you supported, who got banned from the local chipshop for telling school kids to go kill themselves. He follows you home one day, overhears you talking to your Nan on the phone while on the bus and assumes it's your Mum and then screams "you're mum has a cock, she's not a real woman" at you all the way home, then every time you leave the house, then outside your work and outside your toilet cubicle in the works lav and via email for 10 years. Finally, your patience runs out. Then, that same person comes into your work looking for your manager to make a complaint about you because you eventually reported him to the police and now he wants you fired for not being professional. "Dealing with my shit is your job!", he screams, but you haven't been in support for years. He doesn't know that, he can never know that, because he snorts bath salts and his short term memory is ruined. You understand he will never escape this hellscape, so to try and placate him you negotiate with the chipshop on his behalf but as soon as he gets back in he calls the lass behind the counter a cumdumpster and gets banned again.
That is daftlad in a nutshell.
