EDIT: This is now the /pol/ containment thread

Hi dear site owners,

We have a problem with /pol/. One of our newly appointed mods is apparently the "nigger spammer" who is using Tor to bump old threads. I am suspecting the BO and the mod to be either one and the same person using different VPN mod accounts or BO has hi-jacked the board to crash it by employing his friends or family members.

Right now i was banned for exposing the new mod to be the spammer himself in the board own meta thread. As you may understand /pol/ is a NS board which is targeted by so many groups of people.
While the new mod is creating dozens of "honey pot" threads old popular threads were slid and /pol/ is dying.
The board is dying and I don't know what we suppose to do.
Some posts and threads are deleted, I myself was banned in the meta thread. The mods are creating a chaos and they they use it to ban random people and lock and delete unwanted threads.

The BO himself has developed the tactic to let the mods do the job for him so he keeps his clean image. Once a mod has messed up the board far enough he simply replaces him (likely with the same guy by deleting the old mod account and creating a new one. Ocolette is owning the board for approximately 5 months now and it has become same bs as 8/pol/ were people are getting banned unfairly and for ridiculous reasons.

I have taken screenshots and archived all evidence. I'm ready to upload it if required.
People are now leaving /pol/ in big numbers and I ask you to help to save the board from Ocolette and his moderation.

Well, he is the nigger spammer. That's OPs game. Attack a board and then claim it's moderation. He has since fucked off to 8chan to attack all of endchan, and Odilitime showed up to defend. Lets hope OP stays there.

PSA: Block bypass has been enabled for some IPs Balrog Board volunteer 05/17/2016 (Tue) 14:23:15 [Preview] No. 4154 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
I found where that spam full of random garbage is coming from. It doesn't have any discernable pattern so we can't use the autoban addon to remove it, but it's all coming from the same /24 range of IPs in Russia so we can just rangeban it. The problem is that Lynxchan currently only does /16 rangebans, which would result in substantial collateral damage. To counter this I'm enabling the block bypass function.

If you are rangebanned, you can use the block bypass function to solve a CAPTCHA and bypass the rangeban. This requires your browser to store a "bypass" cookie. No CAPTCHA will be required to post if your IP has not been subject to a rangeban. Block bypasses last for 24 hours or 50 posts.

I've already asked StephenLynx about adding a second, smaller rangeban level.

Making an official thread to keep on top of this better. Most of these are relatively easy to add.

I'm not quite sure why LynxChan has a filter on these. It maybe easy to start a list of what we don't want.

I made some fixes to the javascript-enabled system. InfinityNow now handles if the browser can't decode the mime much better. This allowed me to upload MKVs.

If you upload "doesn't start", check for JS errors in your dev tools ([javascript] console).

Try uploading to >>>/test/, I don't think the >>>/tv/ banned any formats tbh.

OK, I was able to test uploading an mp4 video to /tv/ and WITH SUCCESS.

I am now trying to upload my mkv formats and its a no-go. Uploads will not start at all, and I did not change my javascript settings at all either. Something must be wrong with the board or the programming... perhaps it was hacked to deny mkv formats? Don't know... I'll consider converting my mkvs to mp4s and uploading them that way.

PS: if the mp4s stop working next week I'll know for sure there is deliberate blocking going on. I plan on posting more videos, and so far mp4 still works!

try upload to http://mime.ritey.com/ and let us know the mime types you're getting for your MKVs.

No one, including StephenLynx knows what the EBS addon is

Good! 76 Arrested, 13 Children Rescued, In Major 8 State Pedophile Ring Bust Anonymous 03/19/2018 (Mon) 17:48:32 [Preview] No.8734 del
Thirteen children have been rescued from an eight-state pedophile ring that led to the arrest of 76 abusers creating and distributing “extremely violent” child pornography involving infants and toddlers, according to North Carolina authorities.

Of the 76 arrested, eight men were in North Carolina and ranged in age from 32 to 73, according to N.C. State Bureau of Investigation. Eight of the 13 children rescued in the multi-state sting were in North Carolina.

NC Patch reports:

During the pedophile investigation 1,255 digital devices were seized, 235 of which were mobile phones. The arrests stemmed from cybertips from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and online undercover investigations.

In North Carolina, agents executed 27 search warrants, 56 “knock and talks,” and seized 190 digital devices and 178 DVDs and CDs.

NC SBI said examples of cases include:

Agents tracked down a 21-year-old cyber stalker in Rowan County who is accused of sextortion after demanding nude photographs of a 17-year-old girl in Canada.

In Monroe, N.C., police officers executed a search warrant prompted by a tip and found a 7-year-old girl in an abusive situation.

Sad! Toys R Us Files Bankruptcy Over Declining Birth Rates Anonymous 03/19/2018 (Mon) 19:11:21 [Preview] No.8735 del
This week, Toys R Us officially filed liquidation papers. It will shutter or sell each of its 735 stores across the US.

The toy chain's sales have declined in recent years, largely due to competition from online retailers like Amazon, some $4.8 billion worth of debt, and a rise in labor costs. All of these factors are laid out in Toys R Us' most recent annual filing, published in April 2017.

In the filing, the company also mentions another, more unexpected threat to its business: declining birth rates.

"Most of our end-customers are newborns and children and, as a result, our revenues are dependent on the birth rates in countries where we operate," the filing reads. "In recent years, many countries' birth rates have dropped or stagnated as their population ages, and education and income levels increase. A continued and significant decline in the number of newborns and children in these countries could have a material adverse effect on our operating results."

In the US, births started to decline rapidly after the Great Recession (which began in late 2007 and ended in 2009), and have continued to fall since then. Meanwhile, the average life expectancy has stayed relatively high at 78.6 years.

Some economists say the US is at risk of becoming "a demographic time bomb," which means fertility rates are falling at the same time that longevity is increasing. Japan — where 2017 marked a 118-year low for fertility and people are living longer than ever before — is regarded as the poster child for this phenomenon.

According to the most recent CDC data available, US births hit a record low in 2016, bringing the general fertility rate among women aged 15 to 44 to 62 births per 1,000 women.


Uber CEO Halts All Autonomous Car Tests After Deadly Crash Anonymous 03/19/2018 (Mon) 19:33:57 [Preview] No.8736 del
As we detailed earlier, Tempe, Arizona police report that a self-driving Uber vehicle was in autonomous mode when it was involved in a deadly crash overnight.

As ABC15 reports, the crash occurred near Mill Avenue and Curry Road early Monday morning.

The Uber vehicle was reportedly headed northbound when a woman walking outside of the crosswalk was struck.

The woman was taken to the hospital where she died from her injuries.

Tempe Police says the vehicle was in autonomous mode at the time of the crash and a vehicle operator was also behind the wheel.

Police added in a statement that the woman’s “next of kin has not been notified yet so her name is not being released at this time. Uber is assisting and this is still an active investigation.”

In a brief statement from an Uber spokesperson, they confirm:

“We are fully cooperating with local authorities in their investigation of this incident.”

And Bloomberg reports that Uber will now halt all autonomous car-testing in all cities (including San Francisco, Phoenix, and Pittsburgh).

RED ALERT! US Congress Working To SHUT DOWN All Image Boards, Pastebin Sites, Alternative Social Media Platforms Anonymous 03/19/2018 (Mon) 23:26:49 [Preview] No.8740 del

The US House of Representatives has just passed a bill called FOSTA (the “Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act”). This bill is headed to the senate. It needs to be stopped.

This bill is, as the name implies, ostensibly intended to fight sex trafficking. Sex trafficking is awful, and should be fought. But a lot of sex trafficking experts think that this bill won’t have that effect. That it will actually make things much worse for sex workers. For example, those sex trafficking victims that are supposed to be protected may suddenly find it illegal to talk about their experiences. Whoops.

That’s probably reason enough not to pass it, or at least to go back and take another look. But that’s not the end of the story.

An amendment slipped into the bill also proposes to override section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. Without overstating the case in any way, CDA 230 is the reason small companies like ours can exist. It protects us from liability for the actions and content of our customers. That means if you don’t like what one of our customers has to say, you can’t sue us about it. The First Amendment is great, and we love it, but in everyday practice, CDA 230 is what keeps rich people and companies from filing nuisance lawsuits to force us to either censor our customers at their behest or drown in legal fees. They know that, and they hate it.

As the EFF has pointed out, if this protection is weakened, pretty soon the small voices will be silenced. Not because what they have to say is illegal, but simply because it might be. Fear of liability will force providers like us to either moderate all the content that appears on our service — massively Orwellian and expensive — or simply proactively disallow anything that might possibly create liability. Or just shut down and leave the Internet to the likes of Facebook.

In that climate, the only people who will be able to have websites will be people who can afford teams of lawyers and people who only say things so boring that they don’t run any risk of creating liability. Remember when mass communication consisted of three broadcast TV channels and everything said on them had to be approved by the channel’s “Standards & Practices” department, which censored much more than any law required them to because that was cheaper than fighting? Do you miss those days?

If you’re not that worried about us, that’s fine. Here’s why you should still care. Does your website have a forum? Does your blog allow comments? Do you have a feedback form? A wiki? Could someone post spam anywhere on your site offering sex for money? If so, enjoy your ten years in Federal prison. (And yes, we’ve seen several cases where people engaging in illegal activity find unmonitored corners of sites that allow user-contributed content and use them to communicate. We act to shut that down when we find out about it, but we’re strongly against sending the operators of those sites — or us — to prison for “facilitating” those communications.)

This sort of crackdown on online communication has been attempted several times in the past, usually around intellectual property. (Remember SOPA, PIPA, etc.?) But intellectual property owners, despite being good lobbyists, aren’t very sympathetic public figures. Sex trafficking victims are.

If you live in the United States and you ever took even a high-school level civics class, you probably ran across the concept of an ex post facto law. This refers to a situation where, if I’m in government and you do something legal that I don’t like, I make a law against it, I make that law retroactive, and then I use it to prosecute you for what you already did. That’s not how law works, and it’s not allowed.

But FOSTA contains this little tidbit:

(b) EFFECTIVE DATE.—The amendments made by this section shall take effect on the date of the enactment of this Act, and the amendment made by subsection (a) shall apply regardless of whether the conduct alleged occurred, or is alleged to have occurred, before, on, or after such date of enactment.

Whoops. I guess Mrs. Mimi Walters of California (the author of the text above) skipped civics class. To be fair to Mrs. Walters, the US Constitution is very vague on this point, and the language is convoluted and hard to follow. (“No Bill of Attainder or ex post facto Law shall be passed.” – Article 1, Section 9)

That’s not the only problem, nor is it only my opinion. The US Department of Justice agrees, raising “serious constitutional concern” about the ex post facto nature of the law and states that the is broader than necessary (meaning it criminalizes not only more than it needs to, but also more than the authors think it does). They are also concerned that despite making so much stuff illegal, this bill makes it harder to prosecute the actual sex traffickers.

When the Department of Justice tells you you’re making too much stuff illegal, obviously you take a step back and fix things… unless you’re the US House of Representatives.

In that case, you pass it as-is 388-25.

That’s right, the US House passed a bill that, our own liability concerns aside, makes it harder to prosecute sex traffickers, but criminalizes people speaking out against sex trafficking, including former victims. What the hell? Do sex traffickers suddenly have really good lobbyists?

Those fucking assholes! Go figure.

I've heard of the CDA exemption before, so it would be interesting how this effects companies like Facebook, Twitter, Instragram, Snapchat, Youtube, etc. But this would obviously effect image boards and pastebins too. In other words, some feds could false flag a site and then use that as justification for having it shut down for "user oriented abuse." Will image board owners have an offshore safe haven to move their servers then? Does this mean that Google and all the rest of big tech will be moving their servers out of the US to avoid this new disaster?

And the long-term effects... do we go back to IRC, Jabber and using P2P chat clients? Because that seems to be the only real way to flip the middle finger at these control freak parasites.

I think as well as Image hover and inline quotes, you should give board owners like my self the option to ban entire countries, like Australia for example. Though I am not familiar with how range bans work, can it achieve the same effect?

As a suggestion, I've taken to maintaining a personal wiki for uncommon commands and procedures. Anything that won't sit in the bash_history file to be refreshed more than once a week, say. Saves a lot of time the next time around.

In related news, endchan.xyz should finally be fixed now. It took much longer than usual for Namecheap to unblock the domain, and then I derped and missed the notification that I needed to manually reset the nameservers. The domain should become resolvable as soon as the change propagates to your ISP's DNS server.
