This thread is quite obscure and I am uncertain if this post will be viewed by another human.
I am tired of this endless bullshit! I am tired of politics constantly leaking into this board, I am tired of every thread being related to damn security in one way or another, I am tired of idiots leaking into this medium and causing it to cease being entertaining and insightful for the genuinely savvy users, and I am tired of constantly running from corporations and agencies that want to oppress me and take my data, fuck this.
/tech/ has ceased being a medium for discussing genuine software and hardware and has basically become a medium for hiding from corporations and agencies and constantly being paranoid that every fucking electronic device around you wants you dead, it gets old after a while, and you end up using hardware and software which is absolutely useless for daily activities. BUT HEY! This software/hardware protects your freedom, so you should install it!
I want to discuss motherboards, I want to discuss soldering and other techniques for building simple electronics, I want to discuss interesting software applications for performing calculations or visualizing data plugged into it, I want to discuss signal interception using old television satellite dishes, I want to discuss physics and mathematics that pertains to technology, I want to discuss internal compression engines and transmissions (Because this type of shit actually pertains to /tech/).
But I know this is all a dream, imageboards are filled with faggots and individuals who are interested in these types of topics are highly rare, and on rare imageboards such as this, the only people you will find are those who are here because they care only about their privacy and that is all.
