What will happen if section 230 is nuked?
Replies: >>414 >>1609 >>2316
>Section 230
Unlikely to be completely removed, but it might be revised as dup's last act or during Biden's term. These hypothetical revisions and what they might change and affect is what should really be discussed. When a businessman tells you something extreme like this, it's always a way to make meeting somewhere in the middle seem like a good option. However, in this case, both options are shit.

If the revisions are serious and make running any interactive service away from tech giants' infrastructure, migrating to alternative protocols like Tor and I2P would be a way out. But as of this moment, no imageboard software compatible with running over a network where a poster's identity is not tied to an IP address exists. There have been some truly autistic solutions proposed, such as Freenet's web of trust. But in my opinion those don't mitigate excessive shitposting but rather clusters people into social bubbles and circlejerks.

Lots of sites got deplatformed by jewflare and hosts already even with section 230 intact. This may scratch FAGMART just a bit, for their formidable army of lawyers. It will take more than that for the government to end the power of them. By then, the government will do the censoring.

While that is true, I only mentioned its web of trust system that can be implemented outside of it.
>Lots of sites got deplatformed
That's not what section 230 protects you against. A platform is not responsible for the content its users post, barring illegal things with the Good Samaritan provision. So, as things are right now, if someone spams CP on your board, you are not liable for hosting CP provided your remove the offending material in a timely manner (see the provision). With it gone, you are now a lot more liable. By which I mean you will have to shovel a lot more shekels into the pockets of lawyers to get you out of it without an easy law such as section 230. So when you say
>This may scratch FAGMART just a bit
think about how hard that will scratch anyone that isn't.
>By then, the government will do the censoring
It's a very bold assumption on your part that FAGMART don't already operate together with government entities.

Yes. It is already bad enough now. See 8ch, somebody uploaded a Word manifesto and site is nuked. What difference does it make without section 230 anyways? If I doddle up a 0-day word docs, this site is kill in a too.
>FAGMART don't already operate together with government
Of course they are one. But even they have infighting among themselves, for they are not one person. United they exploit the goyims, but not so much on power and profits. This is why there is still room for goyims to make use of this power struggle again (((them))).

Does nobody here remember what happened to Backpage? That entire site being taken down and its operators arrested for the content users posted proves that section 230 never meant much.

Later they changed the law with FOSTA-SESTA which goes to show that they'll do whatever they want and change the law afterwards. Anyone who complains about about ex post facto laws must be a pedophile. That the owners of Backpage won awards from law enforcement for helping to fight sex trafficking and commendations from sex worker groups for helping make their job safer prior to being targeted doesn't matter.

Right now they're trying same thing against pornhub and they'll probably succeed.

Is there a way to make an alternative internet? I recall some sort of messaging service that used some sort of radio and required about $50 of equipment, it was open source but I forget what it was called. Though I believe it relied on bouncing signals around and unless there was at least one every X kilometers it wouldn't work. At the time I didn't pay it any mind but now I think it's worth researching.

What makes the current internet good is how ubiquitous it is. You can even make obfuscation protocols and additional routing networks on top of it thanks to that. You are talking about radiowave-based meshnets, which are mostly an enthusiast thing. This means you won't even get what little anonymity we have at the moment, not to mention other things such as triangulation of sender based on said air waves and how in a lot of countries an absolute majority of radio bandwidth is regulated very strictly, to the point of encryption being illegal.

Gentoo Linux to discontinue LibreSSL support
>Starting 2021-02-01, Gentoo will discontinue supporting dev-libs/libressl as an alternative to dev-libs/openssl.  While it will still be possible for expert users to use LibreSSL on their systems, we are only going to provide support for OpenSSL-based systems.  Most importantly, we are no longer going to maintain downstream patches for LibreSSL support -- it will rely on either package upstreams merging such patches themselves, or LibreSSL upstream finally working towards better OpenSSL compatibility.

So this means cock.li is compromised, right? Invites are piss easy to bypass for governments when you have such a large userbase, so it doesn't actually do what it's claimed to do. Since a single user could just (wait out the grace period and) invite anyone for free, the invite graph will have to be stored indefinitely, which makes for way juicier metadata than IP addresses ever did.

No, absolutely no patching so far. The only thing I had to do was disable the system-ssl USE flag on nodejs to use the bundled openssl instead. That was when I tried (and failed, but for musl-related reasons, not libressl) to build rust and firefox, as nodejs is a build time only dependency for the latter. I honestly shudder to imagine why the flying fuck it's bundling its own copy of openssl to begin with, but I didn't care too much because it was only for the build.

Also, it's already a promise, now that the newer processors have some kind of drm-like system that would tag stuff you made with your unque cpu identification (assuming in a proprietary OS).
I guess they just don't want civilians using memes or making any propaganda by any means (meanwhile small guy agent in foreign division can just relentlessly publish psychological warfare materials and destroy your webring/ib with AI-generated content that violates US laws and causes all your servers to be seized by law until the whole world becomes assimilated by the one world ideology, living in a reality worse than dystopian fiction).

Of course, these are all just LARP, and you should beleive. Online anonymous discussions are harmless, and is not in any way considered as threat by them for their future endeavors and the assimilation of your reality.
