bear's solution to serve space bear 03/30/2020 (Mon) 02:54:57 No. 4519 [Reply] [Last]
Bunkerchan was down for a while on 3/29/20, and while it was down, I was talking to a fellow fa/GET/ on how to fix the situation. I came up with this solution. Much like Margret Thatcher, we're going to need to do some austerity. Move any threads like people like, but are kinda slow burner (EX: /dprk/ , /prc/) and put them into a less active board, /ref/ being a perfect example, so that they don't die as easily. Then cut leftypol's page count by half to have more space in the servers. While you're at it, also move all country specific thread to /ref/ as it seems more appropriate the it would be there, as /ref/ is kinda like Bunkerchan's /int/ anyway **and would boost activity in that board, which may lead to more activity, see this thread >>321740** This is what i believe y'all should consider for this to not happen again, cause I don't want to see anything about topology anymore

I request the enactment of Red Terror in the /bürgerkrieg/ thread. It's not so much the raiders themselves who are ruining it but the horde of drooling idiots who think that replying with "I'm not being baited because I know it's bait" makes them the love buttbaby of Marx and Bakunin. Lord knows I don't mind silly shitposting as long as it's funny, but what's going in that thread is not it. Please at least probate everyone who replies to the bait posts.
I have to thank you, the thread improved massively. But 5 hours later, one of the trolls returned and all the cucks are taking the bait. Oh well. There's at least one troll who I'm fairly sure is a chatbot, he replies almost exclusively with janky greentext contrarianism. Does the board have some way to botcheck?
Are all the mods asleep? If it's an issue of time zones, make me a mod, assuming my post history is not too autistic. We need to crackdown hard for now on obvious bait, until these trolls leave.
I'm fairly sure there has been a chatbot shitting a few theads up for a while now with the cheapest contrarianism ever. Nothing but one-liners with keywords plus a variation on "no u". When the conversation swerved rather suddenly about drugs, I think it became a bit more obvious. Are these posts by the same person? >>/leftypol/593444 >>/leftypol/593428 >>/leftypol/593386 >>/leftypol/593363

Why was my post deleted? I fly a nazi flag, I'm open about what I am, and you delete my post? I know the rules, and I didn't break a single one. I was here 6 months ago, and I while I may have been banned, my posts weren't deleted. I was able to appeal and get unbanned because mods seem to play fast and loose with the rules, but this is a whole new fucked up direction you're going in. Why are mods suddenly allowed to delete posts? WTF happened to this place? My post: https://bunkerchan.xyz/leftypol/res/541168.html#q554609 How was this breaking any rules? I want it restored and to continue my openly Nazi good faith discussion in a highly relevant crisis.

>>4896 >maybe if you didn't derail a thread Bullshit. I replied to people. Why weren't the people I replied to punished for this so-called derailment when I was dicussing their post which they were discussing? They said antifa had no leadership or hierarchy, and posted that they were wrong and explained why. It was a riot thread, about riots, about various groups in the riots. It was a completely different take which included information regarding nationalist sentiment and refusal to engage in the riots for the first time. It was completely on topic and better than 60% of the posts which were just shitposts. My messages were deleted because I am a Nazi. You can't even admit you, you coward. Explain how I derailed? I was banned for 'evasion' even though I wasn't evading. Can you explain that shit? I read other complaints on /gulag/ from communists who have the same complaint. They too were banned for evading even though they never evaded. Your system is bullshit and it is fucked. You know it is. >>4897 >implying you weren't banned from reddit under the justification that you were a 'class reductionist' Don't lie to me. I've engaged with leftypol for years. I know the shit you get for being anti-idpol. I read and engaged in the threads of marxists who were on reddit and complained about being banned for class reductionists. Shit, that's why they made separate reddits which were more ironic. I'm not at all surprised the numbers of nazbols have arisen due to these bans and the demoralisation that comes with separation from a collective they had bonded with. We're social creatures, and we get tribal. Politics is surprisingly fickle amongst most people, especially in radical circles. >>4898 >It's a fucking image board my dude, not an actual political entity. Quit chimping out. If you can't enforce your worldview on a forum on a micro scale, how the fuck cooed you possibly enforce it on a macro scale. Factions of yours want an equal society of stateless democracy. You have a forum with unnaccountable mods banning not only a Nazi like myself for NO REASON AT ALL, but I have read threads where other communists get banned for being part of a faction some mod has a personal opposition to.

As for your posts, we're getting bombarded by nazi retards even more now than ever. A lot of them in bad faith. If you posted something reactionary without the nazi flag, maybe I deleted it by IP. And also, if you weren't banned, stop crying, the thread is moving so fast it cycles every couple of hours.

>>4809 I posted this in the /leftypol/ moderator thread but I had a feeling someone might be mentioning it in /gulag/ too so I came over here. I just wanted to give an example of how many random idpol, troll, Sakai and anti-Sakai threads we have up at any given time. I think one thread for this topic would be fine, but this is a lot of bullshit to be dealing with.
More focus on moderating the threads and less on people's takes on shit would be better. Lots of low effort threads tend to be made, it kills too much of the other stuff.

>>4858 Part Jesus, look at all the words >Eternal growth is only demanded by the current govt+corp+finance complex. When capital does not grow capital does not exist. That is what happens when a depression occurs. There ceases to be a sufficient expectation of a return on investments, so investors stop investing. Investment resumes in increments as the weaker porkies get culled. Then the cycle begins again. A stoppage of growth is just a depression. >Why insist on reifying the current mode as some holy eternal law.It isnt. Things have properties. Growth is a definitive property of capital. M becomes M'. Third-positionists want to have social production without capital, but the engine that moves social production is capital. That does not have to be the case, but when capital is removed from the formula something has to takes its place. Investors do not invest without expectation of a return. What makes investors invest if doing so does not benefit them? My solution: have no investors at all and produce for use. >Their analysis is sound and sometimes accurate - but their models still assume gold backed ie limited currency What have they gotten right?

Cockshott cited Kantrovich's arithmetical method based on production outputs and combined it with Dantzig's simplex method to scale it up infinitely. It is all based upon the point that money is not the only scaling objective function out there. I will include the pamphlet in case you are interested. I am not an advocate of central planning, being a leftcom, but Cockshott makes a convincing case for its plausability. >Give my regards to the lady of the manor squire.

The state is power over a defined geographical region and population.The question is who/what controls that power.Currently it is management elites who are largely under the thumb of extant capitalism. The question is how to get the right elite in power,preferably in several core western states at the same time ,to challenge global capital and knock it down a peg or 200. >the bureaucrats still had to extract surplus-value from workers This fixation on extraction of surplus value as inherently exploitative clouds all your thinking.

Where should I post a thread discussing biological subspecies and strain? I'm having a lot of questions reading up on recent advances in human genetics and would like to discuss the topic collaboratively with you guys, in hopes of also countering some alt-right memetic talking points that are going around online ("dog races" argument, which is very packed with issues). At first I wanted to post it on /leftypol/, but I know how that turned out historically. Maybe /edu/ would be better? I want to at least give you guys a word of it before I make it, so it doesn't come as a shock or seem ulterior. Is it okay? Basically, this is intended to be anti-racist, but mostly just addressing human biology and contemporary genetic/biological research.
>>4841 >but mostly just addressing human biology and contemporary genetic/biological research from the lens of dialectical materialism*.
I'll basically name the thread human biology, start with a paragraph of non-controversial foundations that are quite important but often missed(?), like pointing out that homo sapiens-sapiens is a subspecies, and that "race" isn't a contemporary biological category at all. Then I will address some of the other topics mentioned in the OP in-thread, so as to not bump a OP with any trace of uncertainty or arguable points; letting it only contain basics of human biology and leaving the potential debates for the reply-chains. I invite mods to be heavy-handed if /pol/ or IDpol thinks they're welcome while the replies are going, as I want this to develop dialectically forward into a heightened biological understanding for bunkerchan and not make another "IDpol containment thread".
Please give it a chance.
>>4844 Sure, personally I feel like it would be better on /edu/.
>>4854 Yeah, I agree. I think /edu/ is the better choice.
