I'm curious about the people who have been attacking null and his family lately. Chances are, if he gave them the userdata, they'd still keep harassing him.

He should really just "quit" "give it to someone else", and proceed with the name change, operating kiwifarms under something like "moonman333"

All things taken into consideration, I have a great deal of respect for Null, running a forum, a dieing platform, and respecting his users so much as to put his family and himself in jeopardy. Truly an amazing administrator.

Harambe's Grandmother Died Today Anonymous 01/20/2017 (Fri) 02:34:31 [Preview] No. 581 [Reply]

We know the truth
She couldn't handle the grief of losing her grandson. She always knew he was a winner since Harambe was a young chimp delivering messages about having great dreams about not letting memes just be memes. Harambe's Grandmother was the meme giver and now she has passed on. Press f to pay respects to her.

It really pisses me off how incompetent some parents are and in this case, an endangered gorilla was killed and the mom got away with no charges. It also doesn't help that so many people jumped on the meme bandwagon for Harambe when they wouldn't have given a shit if it never became a meme in the first place.

Millenium-old Sequoia, hollowed out for motorist use, toppled by storm Anonymous 01/09/2017 (Mon) 16:56:58 [Preview] No. 572 [Reply]
http://accuweather.com/en/weather-news/iconic-1-000-year-old-pioneer-cabin-tree-collapses-as-deadly-storm-blasts-california/70000506
http://archive.is/ahxVx

The famed Pioneer Cabin tree, known for its hollow center that allowed cars to pass through, collapsed during the intense storm that blasted California with heavy rain.

The giant sequoia was located in the Calaveras Big Trees State Park in Calaveras County, about 80 miles southeast of Sacramento.

The tree was a popular tourist site since the 1880s when a group of pioneers carved out the center. It became an iconic part of the state park. Until recently, cars were allowed to drive through.

Jim Allday, a park volunteer, found the collapsed tree on Sunday as a major storm barreled over central and northern California.

"When I went out there (Sunday afternoon), the trail was literally a river; the trail is washed out," Allday said, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. "I could see the tree on the ground. It looked like it was laying in a pond or lake with a river running through it."

The tree has shallow roots and its health has been deteriorating, Allday said.

According to the Calaveras Big Trees Association's Facebook page, "the storm was just too much" for the famed Sequoia, that was believed to be possibly more than 1,000 years old.

Transgender activist dies in Pakistan hospital while doctors try to figure out if it goes in the men’s or women’s ward Anonymous 05/27/2016 (Fri) 05:31:09 [Preview] No. 214 [Reply]
Transgender people in Pakistan, are angry after a woman needlessly died while waiting to be treated.

The transgender community said that it has seen an increased number of violence against them.


Now, a 23-year-old activist who was identified as Alisha, was a victim of hate when she was shot eight times on Sunday night in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.

Alisha was in critical condition and she needed emergency surgery following the attack.

However, her transgender friends claim that staff members at the Lady Reading Hospital in Peshawar, failed to give her the medical attention necessary to save her life.

Alisha has undergone emergency surgery, but she has not been placed in the ICU, where she would have been closely monitored and cared for.

Alisha was allegedly neglected while hospital staff were unsure whether to place her in the men’s or women’s ward of the hospital.

Furthermore, the friends claim that they have been sexually harassed at the hospital when staff members asked them how much they charged for lap dances.

MEGA Ordered to Hand Over Users' Details to US Court Anonymous 05/14/2016 (Sat) 13:09:06 [Preview] No. 26 [Reply]
Mega, the cloud storage site founded by Kim Dotcom, has been ordered to hand the IP addresses and personal details of some of its users to a U.S. court. The ruling follows the uploading of sensitive documents to Mega following a hack on a foreign government computer system. Speaking with TorrentFreak, Mega chairman Stephen Hall expressed concerns over the process.

mega_logoWhen Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom launched his new Mega cloud-storage company in January 2013, the company was focused on one key issue – privacy.
Mega encrypts all files uploaded by users, meaning that no one other than the uploader can see what is in those files unless he or she shares their private key with a third party. But while Mega is secure in many respects, users can not expect complete anonymity.

From the start Mega made it clear it would carry communication logs, the IP addresses used by subscribers to access the service, and other personal information.
Nevertheless, although Dotcom is no longer part of the company (his current stance is actually one of hostility), Mega’s commitment to privacy has been maintained by its current operators. Just recently, however, their stance of keeping user information private has been challenged in court.

The case involves a hack on a Kazakhstan government computer system which is said to have taken place in August 2014 but was not unearthed until 2015.
According to the Kazakh authorities the hackers made off with a trove of information including thousands of sensitive documents and emails between the government and advisors in the United States. These were then uploaded and stored on Mega by either the hackers or individuals closely linked to them.

In order to begin tracking the hackers down, in May last year Kazakhstan filed a lawsuit in the United States against 100 unnamed “John Does” seeking an injunction and damages. The EFF became involved in the case after the Kazakhstan government tried to stop Respublika, a site which reports critically on Kazakhstan’s ruling regime, from publishing the leaks.

The court orders and this entire event could have been avoided if Mega simply didn't keep logs, and if that were the case, they would have nothing to hand over when requested to do so.

The concept of Mega is great, but as long as logs continue to be used and data is handed over to the authorities when requested, freedom will cease to exist.



‘Men in Literature’ course cancelled for ignoring women Anonymous 05/14/2016 (Sat) 03:22:34 [Preview] No. 17 [Reply]
Springfield College recently cancelled a “Men in Literature” course on the grounds that its inordinate emphasis on one gender creates a “hostile environment” for women.

Professor Dennis Gouws began teaching the course back in 2005, and has offered it several times since then upon the encouragement of his department chair. The course was intended to survey contemporary culture’s preoccupation with gender by specifically focusing on the male role in culture.

“He never set out to be a gadfly against progressive dogma or a stalwart opponent of the ideological regime. He was, to the contrary, picked for the part by the regime itself,” Peter Wood, president of National Association of Scholars, explains in a detailed account of Gouws’ case.

Now, though, Springfield has determined that Gouws’ course is unfit to teach after the chair and dean of his department questioned the content of his syllabus, claiming that Gouws focused too much on the male’s societal function rather than his portrayal in literature.

Gouws agreed to change his syllabus to include more literary texts and fewer gender studies readings, but the university still ultimately decided to cancel the course, informing Gouws with a letter from Provost Jean Wyld on March 15.

According to the letter, Dean Anne Herzog deemed the proposed revisions to be insufficient, arguing that several of the remaining reading assignments involve materials that relate more to gender studies than to literature.

Administrators also reviewed the syllabi for three other courses taught by Gouws, ruling that two of them “appropriately focus on literature,” but raising objections to an essay assignment in his ENGL 113 Composition Course that asks students to “write about how men are treated in their respective academic environments.”

“You do not afford students the opportunity to choose a gender to write about nor do you require all students to write about the opposite gender,” the letter admonishes him, saying, “Such is certainly a concern from an academic and even legal perspective.

“Based on this it is our judgement that your chair and dean are well within their rights to question your course content and to request changes in your courses to ensure that they are aligned with the approved course outcomes,” Wyld writes. “We also believe that you should modify any assignment in ENGL 113 or in any other course you teach that would require students to focus on a single gender.”

Even my dad who was cucked by the Trump pussy grabbing thing is enraged by this shit. I have had to spend hours of my high school career studying 'the role of women in xyz' for pretty much every humanities subject. Guess what, there's fuckall to know in most cases because women have contributed fuckall to history. I didn't actually mind because it was mostly entertaining and my teachers rushed through it quickly, but this is the biggest double-standards bullshit I've seen, even in a fucking Melbourne university.

Empowering women for the better! We need more women in school, even if someone more qualified must be denied access.

>College course who's enrollees are predominantly men.
This is oppression and sexism! You are encouraging the patriarchy and creating a hostile work environment!

What happened nowadays? I know that the internet makes small events seem large, and something such as this really doesn't have that big of an impact, but you would never see something of this caliber in the past.
