Ironically, the chapo subreddit was quarantined earlier this week. What that means? I pray I never learn enough about reddit to find out.


I don't know the approximate cause but it was probably posting eat the rich or guillotine jokes or something like that. "Advocating violence." Eh, well. That's the problem with hitching your cart to a website owned by the descendents of the Newhouse family and run by the CIA. I prefer tHE rHizzonE. It's also run by the CIA but there's less bullshit about it.

I, too, prefer a site run by the people who patronize it. It's essentially self-governance.

tHE rHizzonE is the carpet cleaner cult of internet communities.

lol what happened



somebody started a QCS thread complaining that he was ruining the bernie thread by not being pro-bernie enough, then a bunch of people started digging for "controversial" posts, like being skeptical of western framing of China or dispelling the holodomor myth. idk if he was forced to resign or whatever, i gave up reading it after it descended into a cesspool of "genocide denier" posts.

Pretty much all decisionmaking in D&D is made by the lawyer clique that hangs out in the official D&D discord channel. More than once they've demanded that another mod there go and ban someone with opinions that they don't like.

the really important part of this is it was the same group of a half dozen or so people that whined about me in every qcs d&d thread. so when the feeding frenzy started, no one came to my defense and a former admin threw me under the bus that was basically the last straw. my last post in there wasn't bullshit, i really was gonna leave at the end of the year anyway because sa is a deeply reactionary place (even though people who've been banned call it a "communist hugbox" or whatever lol) and there's no fixing it. i just threw up my hands and said "fuck it" a little sooner than expected.

you shouldnt be surprised that liberals treat the cops like their own personal customer service agents

#174
tell them cars from the rhizzone said they are a bunch of dim bulbs!!
#175


this is me in my posting treehouse getting instructions from the rhizzone on what to post on the forums
#176
but as per our protocol given the sensitivity of the operation, please transmit in code, which you can reference in the codebook which should have been provided to you. for example, instead of saying "regards" or "good luck" at the end of a message, use the phrase "low prices." thank you, and low prices.
#177
read that qcs thread and i always forget what idiot centrist shills the average goon is lmao. the slightest heterodoxy from what they learned in highschool american history class or read in a nyt op-ed is the deepest insanity

Guyovich probated me once for going on an off topic rant about how much i hate liberals.

i joined rhizzone before i joined SA, genuinely didnt know this place came from that place, have slowly been catching up on several years of niche online history. also i found this place via twitter, so i have made all yous guys journeys in reverse. probably i am hopelessly broken on some fundamental level
#181
i found the rhizzone deep into a whiskey bender, looking for a forum about drinking irresponsibly and it’s effects on ones politics.
#182
i was forced onto the rhizzone by court order; i'm not allowed to post or read anywhere else
#183
i think i made my way here from bhpn on reddit iirc, but i lurked LF, and took their book rec for late victorian holocausts by mike davis. good first radical book.

i came to the rhizzone because my friend who posts here moved cities and i wanted to interact with them without them knowing which worked for about 11 months. now i have slightly better politics and ignore important responsibilities
#186
At first i was sent to shit post on behalf of the skull and boners but now i'm okay with communism its like gay star trek.
#187
I also lurked LF way back so I knew about this place for awhile but I mainly came for Petrol's KKKonspiracy Library and old effort posts. There are, like, really insightful posts that are like a decade old and stuff -- can't say that about many forums!

yeah, before the evil communists took over, when there was the genocidal guomindang, a bunch of war lords, and a royal family. can't forget the colonial governments either -- my favorite chinese government has got to be the japanese one. the good ole days, when people had the freedom to die at the ripe age of 40

anyway here's what you're missing from sa's "new lf":

I would rather fucking end my own life than pretend that Bernie Sanders will not be the fucking President of the United States, which Bernie Sanders will be. Bernie is devoted. I am devoted. Millions of his followers are devoted, and the spirit of Eugene Fucking Debs is devoted to putting this man in the fucking White House.
