Would you like to debate, McTraveller? You seem like a nice person to debate with.

And, I think that, by the left, you may be referring to Authoritarian Leftists. I'm an Anarchist-Communist, which basically means I oppose all structures that unneccessarily restrict the rights and freedoms of the individual, combined with the communist beliefs of worker-owned means of production and replacement of money with people assisting each other. There are a lot of other leftists who believe things like this, such as Syndicalists, Social Democrats and some Individualist Anarchists.
I consider myself a social democrat (bordering on democratic socialist) with technocratic elements. Run society based on science and rationality, and slowly abolish capitalism to both minimize chaos and destruction in the wake of a revolution, and allow people to adapt better.

I don't fully agree with anarchism but you guys have a point.

Good luck on slowly reforming away capitalism as the oceans of the world start boiling over and equatorial regions that house billions of people are turned into inhospitable wastelands. And all the warm fuzzy liberal democracies where for now at least there's even a scintilla of political will for social democratic programs will morph into fascist fortresses (already happening) to keep out all the masses of poor brown people fleeing heat waves that cook your internal organs if you're outside. The only thing left to do is industrial sabotage I dunno write to your congressperson I guess.
Nice try, but "slowly" is relative. Also, note that I would immediately implement ecological restrictions and push some of Russia's neighboring minor nations to do the same. This should stave off what you described for long enough.

Let's be honest I have no chance. Better to simply not make too much noise then move to another country where I won't be bothered.

I know what's to live on that fear. Don't worry however, this forums are as safe as safe can be. It seems Dwarf Fortress is as popular as a successful game can be while being also unpopular or insignificant or something. Once it's out in Steam maybe the forums will get an inrush of escaped lunatics, maybe then it could attract the attention of the internet thought police of our countries.

Ehhh, until the forum is on HTTPS an ISP could pick up what's posted via automated checks of all traffic. HTTPs adds extra protection against such a man-in-the-middle attack, revealing only DNS/IP information and encrypting the request/response information. Really in 2020 there isn't a good excuse for not being on HTTPs, it's not like you even have to pay for certificates anymore.

Thing is, this forum does not really register a lot, there are sites here forbiden or heavily monitored (people here have gone to jail or worsts for posting stuff online). Hell, even in some internet "blackouts" this forum was still accesable, which means they still dont see a bunch of nerds managing a bunch seemingly random pixels a threat or a gathering place for uprisings. I bet they dont even know this place exists.

Not talking about specifically targeting websites, in which case nah this forum would rank pretty near the bottom of the priority list.

Bigger concerns are if it was setup to have a trained algorithm running on all traffic and flagging POST messages where the body matches content the training flags as 'seditious' or whatever and bumps you up a percentage point closer to the list of 'figures to watch'. We're hitting a point technologically where that kind of surveillance is becoming feasible. I'd say that's more a topic for the technology thread than AmeriPol but we all know what the NSA/CIA gets up to...

Anybody who *knows* what the CIA is getting up to isn't likely to be posting here about it!

(Not since Toady deleted Snowden's account for spamming links, anyway... ;))

Ok comrades* we are looking for the anti Putin rebel known as Max.  According to the information we retrieved from his dealings on a filthy American website known as Bay12 He is reportedly 45cm tall, 32 kilograms, with rusty orange hair. We have eyewitness reports matching that discription here in Northern Yakutia.  I want you to spread out, and search the area and make the rebel 'disappear' when found.

I remember once seeing a Russian 4chan knockoff, where one of the running threads was "Why is Putin dying/retiring/couped this week?"

Haven't seen it. However a jerry can of gas and some chickens could refresh my memory.
