What if we split the Codex into two sites: RPG Codex + Political Codex?

Discussion in 'Site Feedback' started by DarkUnderlord, Apr 14, 2021.

?

What do you think about splitting the politics out to a separate stand-alone website + forums?

    Honestly, everything is a honeypot, whether willingly or not.

    Here's some primer reading from the snowden material. You'd be silly to think anything you put on the internet isn't being archived somewhere for later "reference" if needed.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_surveillance_disclosure

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PRISM_(surveillance_program) (this is the one relevant to the US / Australia interactions)

    If the laws in your country prevent domestic surveillance, well one of the partner countries will just spy on you then hand the information right back to your government.

    That's the short and skinny of it.

    You don't know what you're talking about.

    End-to-end encryption works, and you don't have to worry about keyloggers if you're using Linux.

    Bro, for most normies, this is relevant.

    Not all of us are cyber paranoid.

    I'm trying to educate people on a subject. You could have tried to come at this new bit of the discussion in a more monocled fashion.

    All the undesirables fled there and are still using it. It is encrypted and owned by Russians I think.

    You're just drunkposting about things you only have a rudimentary understanding of. Most of your posts ITT have created more ignorance than they've dispelled.

    Please enlighten us, or not.

    You don't need to be an expert in a subject to have a conversation about it.

    If you have something to add to the discussion then by all means. If you just want to attack the poster though, then I'll just ignore you for the time being.

    This is a forest and trees argument. I feel you are intentionally being obtuse because you want to argue for some reason.

    I'm trying to start a discussion about the topic and ur being an autist. Reread my post if you want to see the intentions behind it.

    True. For example, you can be tracked by creating a profile based on your behavior and/or contacts alone, even if you use proxies. But I'd rather not make it too easy. If you ever follow internet drama, Discord is a constant source of doxing and other retardation. Something about having a "private server" makes people think it's actually private, even if they consciously know it isn't.

    'chop, you should just get out of the US. Then it doesn't matter if they can track you - unless you are important enough for them to send a drone after you.

    I agree that the surveillance state is alarming, I disagree that there are no ways to counter it.

    For now. The moment the state has reliable quantum computers though, virtually nothing will be hidden to them.

    There is already quantum-resistant encryption.

    There are ways to adapt encryption to be hardened vs. QCs. Solving a cipher is far more expensive than making the cipher harder to solve.

    Would if I could. Still might, if possible. We'll see.
    You can get your own server hosting with Element, so they can't ban you unless you use the normie version.

    Telegram is ok. Tbh, I think it's also a tool for globohomo provocateurs to be able to message effectively. ANTIFA uses it too. They have banned some overtly racist pages recently and Apple censors certain pages on their app, but it's still very usable. The actual messaging is pretty decent and offers encryption, deletion of messages for both parties, self-deleting conversations and open source stickers so that you can upload your own politically incorrect reactions.

    The other option I forgot to mention is the Fediverse. For example, I believe those uncooth political types use a federated instance called Poast to communicate. Think of it as Twitter, but racism is allowed. But of course, as a non-edgy gamer myself, I wouldn't know much about that... The Fediverse is new though, so no telling what will happen with it longterm.

    Where there is a will there's a way.

    Encryption is always in an arms race with methods for breaking it. QCs are quite a game changer, but people will adapt to them.

    I remember reading a couple years ago that China had managed to send the first quantum communication to space and back, which can't be intercepted and decrypted.

    Why split the dex? Its too late!

    YOU are all already on the white supremacist lists! Especially the one who donated!

    :lol:

    Imaging giving 1000$ to a site that allows its members to say 'nigger ought to be exterminated' without deleting the post/member!

    Just wait till the FBI requests the database
