4chan janitors have lost their fucking gords. Tumblr is actually a better and more spicy chan than 4chan, now. that's why people are fleeing the chans into altchans and into discord.

Unfortunately it's hard to do becuase we can't make a post on 4chan deciding "where to go" as an exodus cause it will get deleted.

This is why the sign of a true chan is that they wont' censor links to other sides, because a true chan isn't afraid of losing users. They know they are the most based. This is how 4chan *used* to be many years ago.
>becuase we can't make a post on 4chan deciding "where to go" as an exodus cause it will get deleted.
>our IQ is too low to know how to do this
We always did call you our retarded cousins for a reason.
Too low effort even for 4chan.
>>401 >>390 im so fucking happy to be here bros. saw your advertisement on 4chan pol today and came immediately. Fucking hell if i had to tolerate 1 more day of my threads getting deleted, shills, bait, janny censorship, banned. Never going to back 4chan ever again. Let the FBI niggers wonder why i suddenly stopped visiting the domain. Their "banned for 30 days" trick was always a pavlovian tactic to force you to behave properly, thats why they never ban you "Forever" so that you would choose to change how you behave.
>>1378 Thanks for killing to site, faggot. Its too late now that you're here. Everyone pack up and move along!

Internet; VPN, Cafe, Steal your neighbor's Internet. What else do you need?
>But Bahamas and that's illegal!! It's only illegal if you don't report putting in as much as 10k and if you don't fill out your FBAR. Mongolia has banks with intrest rates as much as 13%. HSBC (Hong Kong) is a good way to store money and open investments into Chinese buisnesses (it's a growing market). Swiss Banks; Good chockate I guess. I am not saying to do anything illegal, this is all legal. just hypothetically if you wanted to open an account offshores there are many banks for that. I don't even currently live in America, my VPN does.
>>733 If you're an Americastani Swiss Banks won't keep your savings private anymore look into it.
>>732 This sounds like going through a lot of unnecessary trouble for nothing. I don't want to sound like the "do you have something to hide?" crowd, but living with this kind of paranoia seems dumb as shit when computers have backdoors on the hardware level. It's easier and more effective opting to be the gray man instead.
>>902 I will tell you how the cookie crumbles: 1) Yes, behaving like a gray man is a good start 2) But you also cant give them any access to passwords, information, plans, visits, buys etc. What the other anon said was too far, but you cant expect to get rich from crypto while using windows 10 to access binance, connect wallets etc. You do realize tomorrow the government can just seize or freeze your assets right? They know all your passwords because you use windows 10. You cant afford that security breach. You have to use some systemd free linux like mxlinux ot alpine/void to access your crypto. Sorry mate. You should NEVER leave even 1 door open to free information about yourself, whenever you can have it closed instead.

Why would you trust a large VPN like Nord or Express to not just sell your info? Their clients info most likely worth more than granny on facebook. Why wouldnt NSA start a VPN service and price it extremely competatively?

>>1104 Nord sucks. I used once then cancelled my suscription because it kept pointing to US nodes when I specifically told it not to.
>>1073 Tor used to be cool, but then it got glowniggered. Be careful when using Tor as their nodes are monitored by glowies
I use SoftEther and Ultrasurf. I basically stack the 2 VPNs. I know this is probably a retarded method. Any suggestions?
yes, which is why you should use McDonald's wifi or tor
>>983 Because the information would get sold only to the FBI/CIA american entities. So if you live in any other country...in europe....as long as you are not a literal terrorist/pedophile your country wont have the power and money to request info and threaten a VPN from another country.

Secure Email Anonymous 12/19/2020 (Sat) 04:40:22 No. 1333 [Reply] [Last]
What is the general consensus on non (((google))) email? I've only ever heard of Proton Mail, but like many things of a similar nature, I have heard rumors of it being (((Proton Mail))). Anyone know of any better alternatives? I'm not looking to fedpost over email, just looking for email that isn't going to sell my data, will be relatively secure, and will likely be around in a decade. Ideally cheaper than Proton.

>>1338 Don't see use for the paid account tbo
>>1340 I've only reached 1.2GB after 15 years with Gmail, so I'm sure I could make do with 500MB. However the Protonmail free account puts a "sent from Protonmail secure email" signature after every email. Don't like that, but don't want to pay $4/month to get rid of it. Agreed that the rest of the features of a Plus account are useless.

>>1341 Ah your right, had noticed the signature before but didn't realize losing it meant more shekels. Take a look at https://cock.li/ ? I've used as throw away accounts before, but never as a main email They have one option that isn't a meme address @airmail.cc
Id say whatever email you find, its always a GREAT RULE to delete your old email and keep your inbox clean every week. Write the important information from the emails or just download them. There is a big chance the deleted emails will get deleted from their servers anyway, since they will think it must be trash if you delete it. They probably purge deleted emails every month or so and thats ENOUGH for you.

Divesting from Google Anonymous 01/03/2021 (Sun) 07:44:38 No. 1358 [Reply] [Last]
ITT: we discus the practical steps needed to completely divest from Google Google has now become so entrenched in the tech world that it's becoming far harder to divest then it was in the past. The scope of Googles control goes far beyond the understanding of most users: >User services, Google search, Gmail >Commercial services, data analytics, CAPTCHA >Developer tools and programs, Google sketchup >Companies where Google is the majority shareholder >Companies where google is a major shareholder >Groups where Google exerts a major lobbying/private influence >Companies where Google is the sole or a major customer

>>1361 I've been looking at it too. Key questions: >ownership >key personnel >legal jurisdiction >subpoena policy >gag order policy Google has such a pervasive and obaque interest in many companies, it's really hard to hold anyone accountable. Websites need a COI policy, it's not hard. A. set a user interest statement, where you assume the interests of a hypothetical average user B. You make a general promise not to violate the interest of your users C. you declare any interests you have that may be a risk to the interests of your users, but that you don't think you are. it's like a hypocratic oath for tech companies This is hardly a new idea any many attempt to this end have been made- but we're still seeing tech companies going it alone instead of joining an existing effort to improve transparency and user confidence
>>1362 We'll have to see what progress drumpf is able to make with section 230. Big Tech is not in a position to cuck just yet.
>>1364 There is still a lot which can be done to divest from major tech companies. In terms of their ease: Deleting MSM accounts you have that you no longer use (because even an inactive account gives the company the right to track you as per TOS) Switching from google services to independent ones, even if the degree of their independence is relative. Switching to services outside the US/EU legal jurisdiction, where providers are compelled to cooperate with the often questionable demands of authorities. Switching from Google program and developer tools to open source. I've had problems in the past because small independent providers I've relied on shut down; sometimes an unplanned shutdown where users were not able to salvage their data. I also got burned pretty badly once when a company was acquired by another without users being notified, and that company abused user data.
My favourite is the "trackmenot" plugin. Its like a bot that searches random shit all the time and obscures you. Im using it right now, but im not sure how well its working nowadays. And no, it wont search for "bomb" or "kill" its a list of safe words that gets updated from current trends. shills on 4chan were going crazy as soon as i posted about it.
Another great move was starting to download youtube videos (entire channels) or as mp3s. Download your favorite channels before they get fucking deleted from existence. A removable HDD costs like 70$. And you can put most of the stuff in RAR5 archives with 10% bit rot protection, so you negate bit rot completely.

>>58 If you were sure it was jidf, you should have included the footage of the vampiric rabbi and stated that the ban was anti-semitic on those grounds. btw, I have no idea, i just wanted to throw that in there. what did the ban message look like?

>>1354 thanks anon I was unbanned a long time ago by writing an appeal and making it very clear it wasn't cp and yes it did have the procedure probably redpilled an anon or two
>>1370 My lord, you really dodged a bullet there. It may have not gone anywhere but with even the mention of CP shit can go down real quick.

>>1367 If you’ve looked online for bios updates for your mobo and they don’t enable USB boot, then I think you’re sol as far as booting from USB regardless of what lightweight OS you manage to install on the drive from CD.
yes, you are of course right. I was forced to do a recovery boot by CD

Why the Linux such a bad OS? The 4chan banned me off of the /qa/ board and range banned my town from image posting so we will discuss the bad parts about linux here instead There is a good part about it. However, If you have a job or a life it is worthless. The two major software suites that everyone needs is not availibe >doesnt have any adobe software >dont have office When it comes to resource usage, it plain just isn't better in any meaningful capacity compared to windows >the windoes OS lowers memory usage the less ram you have >person was able to trim windows 10 down to only using 450 mb of memory at idle >unused memory is wasted memory anyways Customization is something linux may have over windows, but ricing is a waste of time

They're 'monkey button pushers'. Irrelevant, like most of your so-called 'arguments'. >And linux is far more prone to breakages than windows That's the most laugh-riotous thing you've said yet. IN CONCLUSION: You're either such a brainlet when it comes to computers that you couldn't get even an easy distro like Ubuntu or Debian to work for you and had to resort to a PlaySkool OS like Windows that holds you hand like the little babby you are, or you're an obvious troll; which is it?
>>1345 >Is there a TROLL in this thread? Yes and not just this thread. Have to strain to imagine an individual so pathetic and bored to troll /g/ on an obscure chan.
>>1347 I LOL'd.
I was going to into linux but the issues associated with trying to edit images are considerable. Sure you CAN run them, but they are demanding programs and can run slowly even on windows
>>1256 The old adage of how linux is more secure is not really supported either, because only the community could know so much about the security, but if it's not independently verified by corporate hackers, assuming anyone would waste time on it, then it would provide a more reliable inspection of whether or not the a priori statement is true or not.

>>286 >They can't listen to police frequencies in this day and age anyway. It's not like it's a police scanner. Who are you going to spy on? Truck drivers? Huh? I get the police frequencies on mine.
>>776 Got a recommended site to look up local police frequencies? I think my department around here is smart enough to encrypt their radios but you never know. What band/approx frequency range are your local transmissions on? I've got a RTLSDR sitting around and have been meaning to get started with it
>>777 https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/ It's kind of boring now with the lock down, so there isn't anything on the channel I listen to. But normally there's chatter about shoplifting, and occasionally shots fired or so. But I live in a large city, so if you live somewhere that's like ~10,000 people and 2% nigger I'd imagine it's not going to be very interesting.
I'm have tried for some time to make sense of these, but don't really get the appeal. If someone broadcast over a large area they get triangulated very quickly, and there are so few people broadcasting that they could be readily identified. Commercial telecom infrastructure is at the disposal of a range of state and non-state entities- as are the personal devices of individuals. Some asshole with an Iphone is going to pick up your broadcast and unbeknown to them they are going to relay that to service providers (see:GPS never actually off) If you are broadcasting "peer to peer" you may be safer from triangulation, but once detected your AO becomes so small you could be identified by CCTV. Thus I conclude if someone wants to stop you broadcasting and you didn't want to stop, you would have to have a broadcaster in a car or backpack kit- or operate peer to peer in an environment where CCTV wouldn't identify you (wear a mask). >"Hey you, give me that radio" >"We are here to investigate a unknown broadcast" If you broadcast something encrypted, here's the split: Most devices couldn't decrypt the broadcast- but they could record it and conceivably it could be "brute forced" at a later date. I suspect there are probably even apps that when paired to a plugin receiver could do this now. And of course anyone could work out WHEN you broadcast unless you had a numbers station. Then you have the legal issues with broadcasting an encrypted signal. Now I would split this immediately into to categories, good faith prosecution and bad faith prosecution.
