Unfortunately, he also lives in Scotland and has been targeted by his government in the past, so he likely can't play host or pay somebody to pay host to a website that allowed such content without risking his actual life. My mans had to endure a lot over a fucking pug raising its paw.

Also, it's not a 'loli crusade' it's a 'weeb jihad.' Get it right.

thats the thing thats hard to figure out. lolis are illegal in a great number of countries yet they are almost never prosecuted because, most of the worlds police force has more important stuff to do than raiding some weeb anime collection. So its always a wierd thing to me.

That said CountDankula gets enough negative attention from the idiots that even if it were not illegal still I would not do it

he said that he personally doesn't like them but still thinks they should be protected under freespeech
That's a new one, I remember him not liking them to the point he'd rather them be illegal.
He had a discussion with Louis Le Vau about it.

Not as many as you think, those countries are still a minority.

yes, he had that opinion at the end of 2018 but i remember him saying in a relatively new video around 2020-2021 that that he thinks it should be legal as long as there are no studies indicating a link between loli and IRL actions.

i couldn't find it but here is a tweet referencing it

Just joined. Thought I'd share my input on this thread before doing anything else as it caught my eye. I'm not even too much of a lolicon (not as much as I was a while ago) but do think there are issues with modern Internet society, so I guess this place is somewhere I might fit into quite well. ^^

I think straying somewhat away from the KiwiFarms and imageboard attitude, but also straying away from the woke Twitter/Reddit/Discord attitude, is really what's needed. We shouldn't harbour outside drama here the way Kiwi does and makes a fair great point of it, or pick and choose favourites to ban based on popularity/internet points the way the woke Gen Zers seem to. Essentially, going back to roughly around the late 2000s-early 2010s vibe forums had, so just before phoneposting came onto the scene (2012), underage zoomers sprawled their ironically smegma-coated SJW hands all over social media (2015) and Discord killed off the Internet forum in general for good for the most part (c. 2017).

The former turns us into what some outsiders will call 'no better' for backstabbing the woke individuals if we make that our focus, and I think as a whole we should (as a community) try to differentiate from being part of the "binary agenda" that ironically post-Gen Zers have created despite most of the woke individuals being supposedly transgender/non-binary leaning (see: literally everyone eventually in the game modding, Nintendo, Touhou, computer aesthetics, etc. circles - all of which I'm basically universally banned from and all seem to be kinda intertwined with each other in terms of the types of people that tend to end up meeting each other/hitting it big).

The latter on the other hand is obvious stupidity. Marketing as a freedom-of-speech platform is also stupidity as the Internet is in such a shambles at this point, and it seems like this goes hand-in-hand with 'alternative' clone websites that eventually end up in some scandal and everyone supports Big Tech again anyway - not that it mattered as much of the time they're running off-site scripts belonging to the Big Tech companies anyways full of overblown JavaScript. Setting up us the bomb is not the way to go.

On a note, I do know the owner of an imageboard that's rather cosy, not overly active but the best ones never are (just look at 4chan nowadays). Maybe they could affiliate with you guys if they like this place? I dunno.

This is the first time I've heard this, though I live in England. Last I read that law applied to the entirety of the UK. It's still stupid either way, most of Western Europe doesn't seem to give a shit.

Maybe this explains why so many weeaboos seem to come from Scotland (though I have no idea why, in England, the West Midlands of all areas are so prominently full of anime fans, with Kent being one of the lowest counts given I've met only a few people from here online ever who like anime stuff and that's including myself)...

Well you're fine there. We're mostly trying to go for a low-moderation approach, only banning when its really needed. That's the MO of the sites really, and the end goal is to have a self-moderating userbase (not sure if thats the right way to put it?), and encourage actual discussion (or as much as that's possible on the internet :p)

The talk about freedom-of-speech being an advertising way doesn't really apply here. A majority of those 'alternatives' cuck out because they're corporations at the end of the day. This is self-hosted and wouldn't have a problem coming off that way, besides potentially attracting the wrong crowd, but thats where the whole "self-moderating" part comes in (which is incredibly optimistic on my part), with a bit of gatekeeping through lolis.:flan-yea:

ah yeah, we've got an imageboard too, mostly cause I felt like setting it up. But hey more active users are always a nice thing.

oh and for future reference I'm the site admin/owner
