Emergency coordination and archival thread.

This thread has been set up to allow coordination in the event of administration suppression of dissent and to try to keep a coherent resource of information amidst the chaos of derpibooru and fasted paced 4chan /mlp/ threads.

The rule against namefaging is suspended for this thread for better coordination with users coming from Derpibooru.

1 Let's try to avoid political shitposting. Not saying some political discussion isn't warranted with this topic but let's not miss the forest for the trees.

2 Please remember if you're new or not used to imageboards this chan is very rough in and in the "wild" in comparison to places like 4chan and you may not want to wander very far.

Note: I am bridgefag, know on derpibooru as doloresbridge. I am the owner of this board.

Useful Links

https://archive.is/
All links to archive.today, a web archiving site that is useful for archiving the various threads and tweets. How to use it is fairly straight forward.

https://archive.org/web/web.php
The website of the internet archive and its site archiving tool the wayback machine. From my understanding the entire archive maybe at risk do to a lawsuit so if you do use it back it up on archive.today as well. Scroll to bottom of the page to find the save page now button.

Remember
It is vitally important to sort what could be large amounts of information into both easy to digest and easy to self verify bites. There is a whole lot of random screencaps floating around but without some form of external verification an abusive mod or twitter crusader speaking in double speak can delete and say that it never happened. Not to say that it isn't possible to challenge someone with a cap alone, especially if it is in immediate memory and existence can't be easily denied, but having an archive link is always better in the longhall when possible. If we can assemble infographs, breakdowns of events and keep easily verifiable records then it will be much easier to convince passive users who may have not been keeping track and persuadables to the validity of our concerns and criticisms and much harder for bad actors to BS their way out of out of them.

The most vital information will be posted in reply to the anchor post to allow for easy navigation of the most important information . Do not reply to the anchor thread with link dumps or every archived tweet but only when that information has been sorted and arranged into a clear and concise as can be breakdown.

In case this place becomes a hub of discussion or a place where some track the controversy. A news anchor post has been provided as well for more quicker updates and happenings.

No stupidity
No doxing. No attacking of people's private lives without any reason. This ain't /cow/. This is for legitimate criticisms and concerns. Focus on the actions not the people themselves.

Remember who we are fighting: a mob. Not every person is attacking in the same level of malice or even attacking in malice at all. Mobs are organs of passive social pressure with a lot giving a little and a smaller group of crazed social media crusaders giving a lot. These mobs and their way of thinking too have more support in wider culture than us and could easily have external forces apply pressure at key figures and groups on our end. Adopting their tactics therefore is often unproductive and the same things they can get away with we can't. Fighting a mob requires defusing mob dynamics and breaking their cohesion as a group. Therefore, be kind in debate, be understanding of fence sitters and neutrals, and keep in mind that some members of that mob may only be doing it out of peer pressure. If in their radicalism we are the only ones where you get the choice to be with us or not that can be a significant victory in and of itself. Additionally, finding lines where some of the mob wont cross (we can't rid of old /co/ screencaps, that's history of the fandom!) but others will (It has a bunch of racist, sexist, words, delete it!) will be important in showing that, yes, this slippery slope is indeed real.

I'm not calling you to be submissive, or refrain from harsh criticism of certain actors, but be smart with it. It is an important step in defending ourselves from possible corrupt actions from Derpibooru's administration and in fighting a possible mass cancellation attempt by the media, by defusing and discrediting the mob.

As for the Derpi staffers that were planing a coup attempt I'll have get back to you when I've wrapped my head around that...

Just to clarify to any newfags, this board has no relation to the proper /mlp/ on 4chan. It is merely a satellite state of /endpone/, which is a separate board entirely from the most well know /pone/ board on 8chan.

This thread is governed under rules of /endpone/ with the exception of rule 5 being suspended.

This is an example of a possible format for tweets. Cap, tweet link, archive link. Having a link back to this thread I am mixed on. On the one hand this thread is meant to serve as a place to have proofs to show to the users and the rest of the world yet also with some archival efforts having too many people is chaotic so right now I will be restricting it to just a few people I've been coordinating with at the moment.

This is a real tiny thing in the grand scheme of things but something that I noticed. Derwol's deletion reason was changed at some point from the only thread that had been archived previously, page 33. Now, unless I'm just being flat stupid, wasn't this thread locked pretty quickly? What reason would they have to go back and change it? It was done at least a couple of days after the thread was locked.

A more immediate topic is this thread I made deletion from Derpibooru. It was utterly nuked and I cannot for the life of me figure out any justification for it that seems logical.

https://derpibooru.org/forums/meta/topics/derpibooru-s-newest-crisis
Not a trace remains. This was brought up in the Missing Announcements Thread:
https://derpibooru.org/forums/meta/topics/missleading-announcement?post_id=4891386#post_4891386
https://archive.vn/X8Flm
>The thread was deleted under Rule #0, "Do not post content whose only apparent purpose is inciting anger, arguments, or controversy".
>Any further replies that aren't related to our announcement will be deleted for Rule #6 (off-topic).
She even forbade further discussion though Derpy later asked me in the thread about why what I thought that particular line from him proved, which I have yet to respond to (and it would probably be better elsewhere do to that thread being a bit of a roller coaster).
https://archive.vn/dizw7

Okay, well they said it was trying to incite controversy somehow, right?

How, was it the quotes?
http://archive.vn/uGckq
http://archive.vn/FdwLT
I have mentioned stuff on this level before, no problem.

Maybe it sounded too accusatory?
https://archive.vn/ROM3k
But this thread stayed up. Yeah it was locked but only after a pretty lengthy discussion. I was only quoting stuff on public record like I had done in the past and my main point there was that, while I couldn't trust the staff at that point, the community itself was still worth fighting for. Even in the thread Celestia posted in wad going further than me in accusing the site of ill intent.

And if you look back there were plenty of threads with people having a hostile tone from all sides in this.

https://archive.vn/krCG8

https://archive.vn/ZyC0a

https://archive.vn/HQ9ht

So how did my thread violate rule 0?

Here is the kicker. My thread was nuked off the site. The post wasn't just blanked with the red text of a deletion reason.
https://archive.vn/jeCIF
https://archive.vn/T0Ppf
Yet even in shitposting like this they did this.

So all I have to ask is *Why?* Why was articulating a defense of Derpibooru completely whipped off the face of the site when far more accusatory stuff against them has remained? I was trying to put my best foot forward and move to a bit more productive discussion than the Misleading Announcement Thread. I still would mention criticism of the site of course but also it's defense in this current crisis.

Be careful bridgefag. My understanding of this drama is limmited but from what I know is that:
1 /mlp/ is the main hub of critical discussion
2 Horse News, the more "edgy" news site has gotten cucked and they barely would publish their article.

Since 4chan /mlp/ had a rule in place that banned fandom drama, you never know when they could reinstate that.

You know what that means right? You... /endpone/ and /endmlp/ could be much higher on the target list by these crazy mods. I know there are other places like /mlpol/ and the other boorus themselves but you are actively trying to sort through information and the anons you're gathered seem to be the main team archiving this shit. If what happened to your post is any indication than the mods actively fear level headed moderate opposition the most.

Isn't there like no difference between .is and .vn?
Like these are only different gates to the site and are interchangeable?
Like you can get link like http://archive.is/yf2Uo and change the ".is" with ".vn" and there is almost no change?

Bridgefag, perhaps you should take into account this post. Perhaps we should report if a raid is coming over here (spoiler alert: it´s bound to happen. The word of mouth is powerful and nothing can be kept as a secret for too long)

>Since 4chan /mlp/ had a rule in place that banned fandom drama, you never know when they could reinstate that.
although a mod said to them that they could have their general as long as they don´t create more than one single thread.

Still, setting the bar truly low is perhaps the most proper way to handle this, let alone if they are capable to post CP (Rainbooru) or Gore like they did on /mlp/ a couple of times. Swimming upstream was never easy in the past, it has always been easier to follow the masses.

>If what happened to your post is any indication than the mods actively fear level headed moderate opposition the most.
even if your understanding is limited, you´ve quite nailed it. This moderate discourse that wouldn´t come from /mlp/ shitposters might leave Derpi´s staff insane. So far, Bridgefag is the only one who has managed to get a thread completely eliminated in less than an hour without any justification. That, by itself, speaks volumes. >>105 One doesn´t need an edgy attitude in order to become the most anti-establishment user out there.

Anyway, >>169, archive everything that you can because in this day and age, one cannot have any slice of blind faith (as if I had any in the first place).

Even if this board/thread disappears, at least, I have personally admired your hard work here before it faces the /end/ of the times. It was beautiful to witness this process before my eyes.

You deserve my respect no matter who you are for contributing to this.

This thread, as small as it is, is an important one. This is one of the main things you could point to of evidence corruption in the site's general operations, or at least questionable practices. Almost forgot this thread existed and it would probably be a top target to memory hole.

Due to, well >>171 this exact issue. I tried to come up with a secondary archive solution. I know there is the site's data dumps but my internet cannot handle downloads of that size well. So I have tried messing with trying to capture them in images but it would always cut off. I was able to find a method hat works with PDFs for print but it's awkward and clunky.

Yes, I have heard of both of these and given some consideration to it. /mlp/ mods have actually done a pretty alright job from my understanding but you can never trust them.

>through information and the anons you're gathered seem to be the main team archiving this shit.
At least in such a centrailized manner it seems. You're right that we could get targeted if the spammers are any indication.

Got the entire thread. * Man Armagedonus, this took all day, though my internet is not always great, how do you do it? *

There was a brief moment of panic where archive today wasn't available on several domains for about 10 minuets, hence the switch from .vn to .is early on. Other than my not the best internet it was relatively smooth sailing.

that there is a genuine worry about getting a raid, then you know that there is a tense environment despite posting a few replies meant for fun.

All of this reminded me of this game (I am posting the introduction where it comes from one of my favorites, by the way, choosing the mission that you want to pick by using a computer with all the info about the mission) and never before I would imagine that something as simple as archiving material could become an offense to someone else when those posts have been all shared in public in the first place. If a raid happens, at least it´d better not come from the brony fansites. All of this is so ridiculous that it makes you wonder if we are already living in a cyberpunk society.

It is authoritarianism plus laziness. They got more and more used to being in control and not being challenged that I think they may simply be unused to it. They are used to controlling context (what we said yesterday now means this today) If they nuked my post though I hate to imagine what they would do here at least if I take what I've heard on the grapevine seriously and I prefer to have a more critical eye but even being skeptical of things still leaves room for bad things to happen just from what we do know.

Some would say yes. I say no but the fact that consider all this scheming and such means we're living a little closer than some are right now at least.

yeah, you´ve nailed it. You have literally described the post truth practices that they have displayed for a long time (but these last couple of months, it has become more obvious) .It´s like they genuinely believe that they cannot go wrong with the decisions they take. Unfortunately, that was mostly true until now because they have planted the seeds of other alternatives which aren´t polished for now but these mistakes have induced to their creation as an answer to that egocentric mentality. Sure, Derpi is going to have the monopoly but not because of their merit but because of the tradition. If it hasn´t been because of that and the absurd monopoly that the fans have fed for these past years without any solid alternative to replace it, Derpi would have gone bankrupt (if we were talking about a private company).

>If they nuked my post though I hate to imagine what they would do here at least if I take what I've heard on the grapevine seriously
uh oh, please, tell me that what you have heard is not official.

>and I prefer to have a more critical eye but even being skeptical of things still leaves room for bad things to happen just from what we do know.
being skeptical diminishes the surprise factor and thus, one is ready to react but how would you prevent it?

>Some would say yes.
well, the video game I have shared over here takes place in the year 2023...and the original Blade Runner movie would take place in 2019. So according to the settings of both productions, technically (Mud Briar intensifies), we are already living in that era. Or at least:
>consider all this scheming and such means we're living a little closer than some are right now
getting closer to it in a micro level.

What the hell with this community and its drama. It's seems like a lot of these fellas on the "anti-Nazi" side are bonkers. The derpi admins, some of the mods, the twitter users. I don't get it. How can someone go after Nazis and defend FGM in one breath? How can some users denounce rape and foalcon while also still faving it after?

This take is interesting to me by one of the new Admins as it seems to be way off base from what a lot of them say by saying MLP is anti racist.

>and CP raid? anyway? What evidence do you guys have on it?

Here is the thread of that happening (Rainbooru thread, 9th of June):

https://yuki.la/mlp/35431612#p35431612

The pictures that appeared over there had black stripes in their eyes and yes, Rainbooru was full of CP (at least, I saw the first 5 pages of it, I ran into it with my mobile). This raid happened around 19:30 (the hours u in this post are UTC +2), the raid was shown in public for 15-20 minutes and the site was blocked during a couple of hours so Raindev could clean the site out of that material and put a couple of moderators in order to prevent these attacks.

Keep in mind that it was the only alternative that existed back then (9th of June, Ponybooru didn´t make its debut yet).

I would like to see if Raindev or any of the moderators (perhaps Patachu knows about this) have a mail, message or report related to this raid because that would be really helpful to archive and strengthen even more the suspicions of Derpi´s staff using CP as a medium to nuke the site ( a disloyal competition move). It even got a 2nd raid around 22:30 or so but it didn´t last all that much.

>I'm sorry but I've spent all morning just trying to wrap my head around this stuff.
it´s okay to get confused and raise a lot of questions. Even those who have used Derpibooru for years have had to settle all that insanity in their heads because the staff that holds the power of one of the most influential sites for this community..

sometimes you wish you didn´t get to find out their insides because once you do, you will realize how bad things really are. These pics reinforce the proof that we are not talking about degenerate fans who like X fetishes or certain NSFW content, this is people who are capable to dox and go all that far (especially TSP and the admins: Von Luna/Celestia and Nebbie)

And I haven´t even mentioned the Twitter users yet.

By the way, any raid over here would fall under rule 3 in this site. If they tried a raid with pictures of CP, they would violate the 3 basic rules of Endchan so the mods should act quickly if a raid of that kind happens.

>What is with all these derails
well, there have been a few ones on /mlp/ because that would partially explain the rise of activity (among many other events but Twitter users and the mods have been lurking on /mlp/ for these last weeks. There are tweets/posts that confirm this).
About that specific derail, Bridgefag´s thread got deleted because of Rule 0 (but you will see that the reason behind it has no consistency, it was the only deleted thread and not just locked like the rest. See in this post how >>105 the admins let other threads to stay active while Bridgefag´s one wasn´t inflammatory in comparison to those other threads that were more hostile and didn´t even last an hour)

About /mlp/´s derail, here it is the thread:

https://yuki.la/mlp/35653849#p35660886

You will see a few deleted posts and the derail occurred after Bridgefag´s thread so certain anons concluded that the thread could have struck a nerve to the staff and therefore, subvert the thread dedicated to the drama during the following hours of that deletion as an answer.

There were a few other attempts by trying to offend /mlp/ with gore spam but it didn´t work. The last try (on Friday) from that spammer didn´t even last beyond 5-10 minutes. So that kind of spam has been nullified for now.

>>200
>How can some users denounce rape and foalcon while also still faving it after?
not only that but those who wanted to censor Aryanne had a few favorites in their profiles (even NSFW material of her). A few of anti-Nazi members removed their favs of those pictures as soon as other users called them out for contradicting themselves in their discourse.

>So yeah, having another archiving site is a smart choice.

I have found two options though they are not the best. It is unfortunate that other alternatives like Webcite have gone down.

https://archive.st
Pros
It captures screenshots fully.
Not a freeium service

Cons
It has failed in tests to capture the full webpage. Only gets Trixie's cutie mark from the top.
https://archive.st/archive/2020/8/derpibooru.org/f4v4/
https://archive.st/archive/2020/8/derpibooru.org/hjt5

Random for free services by companies like this just feel kind of shady. Here is their website:
https://ussupportllc.com/
Don't know anything about them.

Requires recaptcha each submission

Apparently was set up in 2017 and long term stability would be a concern for me.

http://www.freezepage.com/
Pros
Very old, older than actually the archive.today if I go by their FAQ and the mentions that I found of them online along with their very dated website So I would have more trust in their long term stability than archive.st

Actually has some features that might be useful, such as the ability to organize and share folders:
http://www.freezepage.com/pub/thelostmailman/testfolder
Note, all of these are text only.

Cons
Is a freeium service:
>I don't sign in at least once a month all data will be lost and account terminated
>50MB Data limit, not the worst TBH, as they allow you to do text only downloads, but I still don't think even then I'll be able to fully minor archive.today
>Mentions of priority access when servers are crowed. Will have to see if they do stuff like making it hard for free users to access randomly so they'll sign up for premium.

Site has https but won't do certain things with it Like archive web pages! It's not that it is a premium feature. Just that whenever I tried to "freeze" a webpage it would just fail when I'm under https.

Between Archive.st lack of trustworthiness and slower submission process and us maintaining several accounts on freezepage that if one forgets than data is lost. Both could theoretically serve as a minor to archive.today but they would have some extra burdens for sure.

Will use both as a limited secondary archive of certain important statements and such and just see how they do I suppose.

I'm not sure I'd call this incriminating of anything on its own without further context but it is interesting compared to the perspective that I normally see; "MLP is progressive, right wingers get out!" from some people of stronger left persuasions. Though I remember this existing way back early on with some of the social justice folks who decided that the show was bad, not just the fandom.

>>205
Here is the full context of the post:
archive.is/Pqv8J
I think you could take a charitable view here and say that threatening harm upon someone for a hypothetical act is not unheard of. Especially for something cruel like a false actuation. You see people say stuff like this all the time both in non earnest anger and bravado. Though I think even under that lens it is still a bit out of line; there is a certain... venom to it and I think that it is still a relevant in that it could be used to establish a pattern.

Important stuff happened but also lots of shitposting, etc. It's a long one and I would advise ya not to go in one go like you have.

My, moderate, stay-with-in-the-rules opposition thread. Some mods spoke here but I don't know how much of it would be useful so it's mid.

Additionally, there was a lot of threads that happened with mods poking out and key players popping there heads and those can be hard to judge. I'm not sure I'd waste time combing through everyone of them at the moment but if you know any with a lot of mod speak I'd say go for it.

Probably the first dozen or so pages of Blossomforth's announcement. There was a little bit of meaningful discussion in there before it devolved into shitposts. There *might* be some other meaningful staff posts in there beyond page 12, but you'd have to wade through all the shit first.
I suppose you could do a search somehow and then archive the search results page instead, or at the very least use that to get to pages with what could be some relevant info.

Otherwise, probably "Concerned Users of Derpibooru", and/or maybe just some staff members' forum post searches, like https://derpibooru.org/posts?pq=user_id%3A216066

That being said I won't disregard it, nor does it sound out of line with something that TSP would say.
My three guesses.

1: it's some user trying to spread disinfo on him out.

2: it's a neutral player or troll just doing it for the lolz.

3: it is legit TSP himself spreading disinfo in some sort of autistic 4D chess game so that he can say "See guys? That was fake. That means all of it is fake." I've seen stupider maneuvers be pulled in IBS

Of anyone, you may have come the closest to breaking the routine of pic related. They didn't act like they had won with you, just fear. Looking through some of the other mod replies I see anger and them being dismissive, but I haven't seen fear. They didn't say: "well that's stupid." or act openly exasperated at you like they do with a lot of other of these arguments I've skimmed through. They just shut you down without any explanation.

Have you poked them further? I say you need to be careful but should try again.

This right here is a good idea. Though don't archive everything they say, just stuff that appears important.

>>212
>You see people say stuff like this all the time both in non earnest anger and bravado
The key here is not to moralfag about it. People say stupid shite all the time. Focus on the content of that, yeah, that does seem a little off and with those chat logs looks really bad. The guy appears to have that as a mentality over it just being stupid. If you moralfag "oh, it's bad dat he threatened him like that!" and whine about the act itself you set yourself up to a standard that you have to live by when you screwup.

this right here. Take a look at this and the OP all over again just to get the reminder why this whole thread is intended for. It feels redundant to repeat this but just in case:

>>61
>Remember. It is vitally important to sort what could be large amounts of information into both easy to digest and easy to self verify bites.
>If we can assemble infographs, breakdowns of events and keep easily verifiable records then it will be much easier to convince passive users who may have not been keeping track and persuadables to the validity of our concerns and criticisms and much harder for bad actors to BS their way out of out of them.

keep in mind that archiving all of this is intended to be exposed to those who haven´t been familiar nor haven´t noticed this whole event during all this time. If the archive contains all the key info so any random user can have enough material to contrast it, compiling the material with everything well organized and accessible for navigating through the entirety of the archive and distributing the prepared folder so other people can judge it on their own.

Instead of trying to claim any higher moral ground in comparison to the staff, opinions aren´t simply enough because...at the end of the day, the messengers aren´t what matter but the key evidence that exposes these events without any modification nor adulterated information. Just the pure and legitimate posts that actually occurred without any bias nor skewed views behind the selective process.

The best examples to put in perspective how the process should go are:
1.A scientific article/report that exposes the phenomenons observed within the process and how it was made or
2. Presenting evidence as if you were submitting this material to the court of law.

Sure, these examples sound exaggerated but objectivity and neutrality of these events hold a much higher efficiency than any dissenter/opposing user. Try to claim yourself as the hero and see how you will eventually fail in the middle of a debate and others point out your mistakes, discrediting your thesis and the legitimate points that you were transmitting, entering into a grayish prisma (ban hammer+ deletion reason: Rule X included at some point of the debate). So, one should seriously think about it twice before venturing into that route in a site where you simply stand to lose one way or another.

they are deleting any post that they literally don´t like or dares to challenge their discourse at this point, even when it´s on topic.

Screencap the posts because it´s becoming more apparent what Evan has stated over there:

>We can't make our own threads out of fear of thread lock/deletion/getting banned.
>We can't say anything in Discord since we'd be muted/banned.
>We probably can't do it in IRC either since we'd be banned there, too.
>Where the fuck do you want us to do it, then?

Honestly, at this point, I´ve seen less intrusive authoritarian regimes than this one. They will go full pigeon and imposing the delete button to death.

this bothers me quite a bit. You´ve managed to save this post >>230 (awesome that it was screencapped by the way, it didn´t last longer than a few minutes) but the slippery slope is arriving at a pretty advanced point in its route right now.

As soon as you try to challenge a little bit their views (even by simply questioning a possible mass deletion of images coming from the staff!), the sweep of bans happens in a fraction of a second as soon as they notice those posts.

Time is ticking...and not in a good way.

The logs, first posted in a pastebin to /mlp/, showed Nebbie treating a user rather harshly and arguably unethically over a ban appeal.
https://pastebin.com/qBgsf1y5

http://archive.is/NSuze
Celestia came out disputing this. Posting in the rule 0 thread that there was no record of such a user ever in the chat look. Floorb, a derpibooru mod (and co-founder of Twibooru, posting under the name Not-Twifag for Twibooru related activities) said he could not find any record of the user and considered them fake as well. Users of /mlp/ are expressing distrust on this being false, asking "why did they wait so long to deny it?". Claiming they had been talking to the mods and no one denied it till this Celestia did and others acted like it was normal. In the administration's favor is that the one thing that has been consistent with this staff is that they have been disorganized and responding to crisis poorly. As it has been publicly mentioned before (I'll find an archive link later) most of the staff have been unwilling to deal with this and it is just, Derpy, Nebbie, triping over themselves with ArmadilloEater recently joining them trying to be a more level headed stabilizing force. So I could believe in them not having an organized response to this. They are human beings after all and can't be aware of everything going on or what's being said. If the claims are true that the staff acted like this was normal in IRC? That is still concerning, even if it was faked. Unfortunately I haven't seen any screencaps or other logs on these conversations, so it's just /mlp/ users word vs the word of mods and admins. It be worth seeing other incidents and seeing if Nebbie has ever gotten to this level in official derpibooru affairs.

Nebbie's post I find more concerning. Though I do think some users were being unreasonable to them they did themselves no favors in that thread. It was the whole Milky image and their evasive and contradictory answers is what gave more life to this drama.


Even under the most charitable read of this. That Nebbie feels overwhelmed and attacked. Too tired to bother with shifting through the ware and tare they still haven't been the most upfront as they could be. They say that most of the staff doesn't want to participate, but honestly having twenty mods and leaving it to like, three? Surely the work can be split better than that.

Was reading through the thread earlier and I think this Nebbie fellow is a bad fit for this. He never says anything reassuring from what I've seen. Very to the point. They spell out their logic in "fighting racism" and what's bad but they don't ever say in their announcements or dialogs that I've seen "Edgy humor has its place as well and we aren't going to get rid of it." Do any of y'all get what I mean?

Don't ask me how that happened either. Nobody else was doing it to this extent at least from what I've seen. /mlp/'s format I suppose makes them more predisposed to keeping watch and responding to drama as it happens over sorting threw stuff (but then you remember the times when /mlp/ has investigated). /mlpol/ ain't very focused on active stuff more so than combing through the staff's past which I find a distraction and morally questionable (not in the case of btye[] discord activities if he did indeed threaten someone though). Though it wasn't just /endpone/ but allies from elsewhere as well.

> This place should be kept as /bunker/.
That is where I am at this point. Others can do the work of fighting if anything sigificant happens. This is for... well, the OP says it all.

I don't want to moralfag it. I'll admit though that IRL pics is something I wouldn't cross but laughing at old comics that are publically available ain't doxing. I do think that it isn't something to waste more effort on then the actual fucking images being purged like /mlp/ did and got their thread deleted honestly though? Mods let it happen. Last time they nuked that stuff when somefags posted it

Post them here. Though with IRL I'm not sure I'll help much. Honestly may be awol for a couple of week. I do though want to keep those bastards from controlling the narrative so I will try to pitch in if I can.

Don't think this is too useful but you might want to look into this new pony website. They have banners all over furbooru and no where else that I've seen. Not sure if they have any connections to Derpi/Furfag staff but if they do it would be worth investigating.

I think they would at least want to advertise on Derpi. Trying to piggyback off a commuity that is piggybacking off another doesn't seem like would give much of a userbase.
