>Flags could be fun, post count is so low some experimentation is worth exploring.
Flags won't help that. Post count on /tech/ is low because post quality is low, because the quality of the people posting is low. Since I stopped posting here regularly, anyway.

I made that flag together with the other flags, mostly for shitposting purposes. Josh was not involved.
I did use the same set of flags on 16chan /tech/ back when it existed.

Sorry, you misunderstand, I wasn't very clear. It's worth experimenting for fun and post count is so low there are few who care, I think it could be an interesting board dynamic. However, I know you will oppose any proposal, you made that clear in your /operate thread drama.

A new Net Neutrality debate should begin. No matter who you are, whatever your political preference, whether you support or do not support Net Neutrality, I'd like to hear from all of you!

Why Do Major Corporations - Who Are Known For Censoring Their Social Platforms - Want Net Neutrality?

https://archive.fo/https://endchan.xyz/news/res/3886.html (I'll be archiving the debate as it unfolds)

This thread documents and exposes the censorship behind three major tech companies that support Net Neutrality.

Now we really want to figure out WHY and what you anons think about all of this.

From what I understand now, its all about the money. ISPs (ATT, Comcast, Verizon et al) fighting content providers (Google, Facebook, Netflix et al) over attempted consolidation of profits.

ISPs want to charge more per content in the near future (removing unlimited bandwidth or making it extremely expensive). Reason? They are losing so much money from growing 'cable cutters' (TV opt outs).

Content providers want Net Neutrality because ISPs would inhibit user's traffic to their services (via more costly bandwidth caps). This would interfere with their profits.

So its greedy corps vs greedy corps.

Anonymous 12/10/2017 (Sun) 02:00:30 [Preview] No.11889 del
You're not wrong. But I just realized, content providers mostly benefit from ad revenue in a sellers market. So what do they care if a prices go up, they'll just be competing for your attention to shitty netflix or shitty facebook, but competing for the same money as with good netflix and good facebook.

>To be fair this isn't really a free speech issue so much because it's not really an issue of getting your word out, it's an issue of advertising your agenda effectively alongside massive HD streaming, be it bragging how cool your frags look in 120fps or reminding people that there's fluoride in the water. The mass appeal is what's going to cost money. I don't really think that the door has been opened to completely stop "harmful" networking of ideas, nor does it need to be, the authority can just make up whatever excuse and ban what they ban like in Britain or Sweden or China. What has been started is clearing of the wood, that paves the way for it no longer being a business secret what you do in somebody else's physical network and allowing ISPs to tattle to anyone they like if you commit wrongthink where previously their hands would have been tied for privacy if somebody comes asking. If ISPs can admit to knowing what kind of networking you're doing, they can admit to knowing what to sell when somebody wants to buy your information.

Doing a 180 degree subject turn, the post.

>Your various chucklenuts can do what they wish by me if they think they're able to be effective. If you ask me Google is one of them, and they've come so far as to build their own financially failing fiber network and maybe their own ISP service to use it, why not. The funny thing is, Google Fiber is not competitive because ISPs are too restricted, cheap, and useful.

Google Fiber is spreading dumbass, not the other way around. Unless you're historically illiterate and you are, companies like Comcast got their beginnings with practices like that in the start as well and then when they controlled the market, treated their consumers like shit because they knew they had no way out. Spouting normie meme trash like a smartass doesn't negate your lack of foresight.

>That changing, Google might become the megacorporation to push all competition out of cities, and then lower the prices and bring plenty of that free shit to everyone.
>and then lower the prices and bring plenty of that free shit to everyone

Yeah, because every tyrant in history that has ruled without opposition has never abused their power right?

Will people shut the fuck up already about net neutrality, it's a load of fucking shit, a power grab from a bunch of greedy kikes. It's not fighting monopoly of internet service and infrastructure, it's encouraging it and putting it under the "guidance" of a select few, perhaps even an unelected autonomous department. There are real problems out there, stop debating the actions of two groups of greedy kikes to decide which is less evil.

Why did he use proxies instead of other methods of anonymity?
What actions did he commit to warrant hiding behind seven proxies?
If he wasn't hiding behind seven proxies, what would he be subjected to?
Is his clear display of confidence a sign that he is certain his identity is safe? Perhaps his adversary is incompetent?
Why did he refer to his location relative to the proxies as "behind"?
Is the capitalization of all the text a method for conveying the fact that he is yelling?
How did this particular image gain popularity and root itself into the minds of the viewers?

All the questions that will most likely remain unanswered.

He was a child porn spammer, I forget what he called himself. "Master" something IIRC.

>Who exactly is the subject talking to?

>Why is the subject wearing dress attire?
That's getting into some really obscure chan culture shit, something from 711chan which goes back even further to Bob from the church of the subgenius. Stuff like that just carries through with memes, which is why Anon, green guy, red guy and grey guy wears suit attire today.

>Why did he choose to use seven proxies instead of, say, six?

He used the Tor network, supposedly it really was that many nodes, I don't know if true.

>Why did he refer to his location relative to the proxies as "behind"?
That's just basic terminology.

Specifically I want a regular keyboard that has a separate enter key that copies a line from the memory of the keyboard into the memory of the computer, so I'm not bound to whatever javashit text window that jumps my cursor to god knows where when the internet page finishes loading or inputs the letters in wrong order after I already started writing before the application was completely loaded. I have to wait for this GUI shit to load before I can safely type full lines.

Hi tech, i'm tired of windows.

I will go to linux, but I need know which linux i will usage.

I am in doubt between the backbox and Kali Linux, if you have more recommendations, I accept (debian priorizer).

I have a 4GB pendrive, is it enough to change the operating system?

That individual (Not even sure if the creator of that post is a human, but the statistics say that it should be), is not me.

It is quite annoying to be told to "fuck off" whenever one asks for advice or help. The OP was clearly incompetent, but that doesn't mean we should get one less person off of windows.

See React OS instead of FreeDOS. Seems to have better development.

A friend of mine does this with rather good results. WinME isn't all that bad so long as you feed it plenty of ram.

FreeDOS and ReactOS are two totally different things with totally different goals. I wouldn't expect ReactOS to have any better DOS compatibility than NT (which was really poor, and getting worse).

You know what sucks about discord is you can't use TOR to register a username anonymously. Sure you can use it, but as soon as you change IPs once they send an e-mail verification and then demand mobile verification before you can continue to use discord.

Medically speaking red fluorescent lightning. Green if you need shades, blue for the blind. Dark on low light: keeps eyes calm non-stressed. Other things include raised desktop to stand and walk, split ortholinear keyboard, small desktop or window to leaves the eyes still as possible. Treadmill on monitor with a pad keyboard is best.
