I'm moving. It has become apparent that this instance is blocking others. As a preservationist strategy I understand it, but it's still regrettable.

I believe in giving the power to the individual user to blocks any user or instance that troubles them (and I have done so), but I don't agree to being denied access to information.

I will be at @[email protected] for the time being. I have my own domains that I might use in the future. So long and thanks.

There is a feud, now in its 9th year, between 2ch/5ch anons and a lawyer who tried to sue the site to find poster identities.

The wiki doesn't translate particularly well as it's loaded with memes, but you can easily spend an entire day reading the entire saga if you're so inclined.

Here are some of the highlights, probably only interesting to those who care about internet culture.

" [...] free flow of information is the only safeguard against tyranny. The once-chained people whose leaders at last lose their grip on information flow will soon burst with freedom and vitality, but the free nation that gradually constricting its grip on public discourse has begun its rapid slide into despotism.

Beware of he who would deny you access to information, for in his heart he dreams himself your master."

Any law that says all vehicles must be electric is a method of control. You can store 50K gallons of gas if you wanted to, you cannot feasibly store the same amount of energy as a battery. Even if you could, electric vehicles chargers could be programmed to reject "unofficial" power sources. Batteries have a limited lifespan too.

If someone can control where where you go, you're on a leash. If someone can control what you say, they can control what you think.

metadata isn't discussed much any more, and it's an old take I think I stole from someone else, but fuck it.

How to explain that "it's only meta data" is as bad as "if you have nothing to hide..."

1: you're at a bar, then spend the night at someones home
2: you call a sexual health clinic and make a visit
3: the clinic calls to tell you that you have HIV
4: you call your bf/gf and relay the news
5: your bf/gf calls another 2 people
6: they each call 2 other people

Meta-data is "only" the people called, times and phone locations of everyone involved. Can you rebuild the entire story?

We found the Government made no convincing scientific case and that the success of the vaccine program makes domestic Covid passports unnecessary.
