This, for myself, shows the great migration experiment has ended. I view my participation on Endchan largely though the lens of the Infinity Next failure, and the attempts find a better solution. In time, Endchan suffered its own catastrophes along with more in 8chan-land.

While Endchan remains active, it appears we've reached an over saturation of
traditional legacy boards across the whole of the internet. Still, had a few good threads here for the time I spent.

Maybe Adolph'll pick her up and plop her down somewhere in alt-naziland? Could be fun.

Good good luck BO, and thanks for the show.

Too bad that the users of this board were never that good with technology. They were years above typical people, but far from a unified knowledge base seen in only a few individuals across the planet...

Intel/AMD CPUs were hit with Meltdown and Spectre, and Intel already had the Management Engine inside of it.
Some things with TOR and other projects happened, a coordinated attack on multiple imageboards (Be lucky that I am telling you this, it was largely undetected) that resulted in lainchan, mewch, and other getting hit hard.

Goodbye.

While I'm not familiar with the board, after a quick skim I see you did a good job. I also found threads with potential, wish Endchan would have a few more posters. I hope someone with good intentions takes over your place.

Author rescinds GPL licensed code from "Geek Feminists" Anonymous 01/11/2019 (Fri) 01:21:48 [Preview] No. 13089 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
https://slashdot.org/submission/9076900/author-rescinds-gpl-licensed-code-from-geek-feminists

Reportedly, the author of the GPL licensed text-mode casino game "GPC-Slots 2" has rescinded the license from the "Geek feminist" collective.

The original author, after years of silence, notes that the "Geek Feminist" changed[1] a bunch of if-then statements which were preceded by a loop waiting for string input to a switch statement. The author reportedly noted that to use a switch statement in such an instance is no more preformant than the if-thens. Switch statements should be used where the input to the switch statement is numerical, and of a successive nature, for most efficient use of the jump table that is generated from said code.

The author reportedly was offended, after quiet observation of the group, that the "Geek Feminists" mocked his code, mocked his existence as a male, and never did any work on the code afterwards and never updated to include new slot machines added to the original code by author subsequently.

The author notes that he neither sought nor received any compensation for the granted license, that is was a gratuitous license, and that there never was any refutation of his default right to rescind given. (A right founded in the property law of licenses.)

The copyright owner has reportedly watched quietly as each year the "Geek Feminists" published a recount of their heroic efforts regarding his code.[2][3] Presumably he has now had enough of it all...

The author notes that the SF Conservancy attempts to construe a particular clause in the GPL version 2 license text as a "no revocation by grantor clause", however that clause states that if a licensee suffers and automatic-revocation by operation of the license, that licensees down stream from him do not suffer the same fate. The author of "GPC-Slots 2" reportedly notes that said clause does only what it claims to do: clarifies that a downstream licensee, through no fault of his own, is not penalized by the automatic revocation suffered by a licensee he gained a "sub-license" from (for lack of a better term.)

The author reportedly notes that version 3 of the GPL did not exist when he published the code, additionally the author notes that even if there was a clause not to revoke, he was paid no consideration for such a forbearance of a legal right of his and thus said clause is not operative against him, the grantor, should it exist at all.

(Editor's note: GPL version 3 contains an explicit "no-revocation-by-grantor" clause, in addition to a term-of-years that the license is granted for. Both absent in version 2 of the GPL)

From github:
Hi MikeeUSA,

Thank you for your notices, the most recent of which is included below for reference.

This DMCA notice is incomplete. It lacks "A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed" and "Information reasonably sufficient to permit the service provider to contact the complaining party."

Unfortunately, an electronic signature must be a legal name, not a monicker or username, and we cannot accept disposable or temporary email addresses as reliable contact information for a DMCA notice.

Once you've revised your notice to include the required details, please send back the entire revised notice, and not only the corrected sections. Once we've received a complete and actionable notice, we'll process it expeditiously.

Thanks,
GitHub Staff

Subject Re: DMCA takedown notice


You take it down or I sue you, simple as that.

I have revoked the license from a number of people, including the John
Doe who has chosen to violate my copyright thence-forth.

I have signed using my 2 decades long held pen-name.

The U.S. Code defines an electronic signature for the purpose of US law
as "an electronic sound, symbol, or process, attached to or logically
associated with a contract or other record and executed or adopted by a
person with the intent to sign the record."

>so is something wrong with the gpl or what?

If you have been told that the author will not revoke the license, but you have not paid him for that "promise", it is an illusory promise and not enforceable.

Effectively: the GPL is an illusory promise, from the perspective of the user.

Three groups of dissident right shitposters sitting under one Sedevacantist's server, yeah, that's real stupid. Why would anyone with two braincells admit to shilling one specific server under a Catholic priest with his own agendas on a non political board? Fuck off.

why would anyone with two braincells listen to a kike like you?

the owner is not a catholic priest, his agenda is to safely house the right-wing and disillusioned, and he's a solid, albeit quirky, guy.

don't like it? run your own homeserver, nigger. make sure you put aside about $40/month or more for a decent VPS in somewhere that won't fuck you over, be ready to pay for it all on your own since your fellow NEETs won't help, and I wish you all the luck in working with the rest of the matrix community, which hates *you* by default.

why would anyone with two braincells shill for one server without context and not provide alternative servers besides the Ordo Evangelistarum server yet be a part of at least one of the three NEET dissident groups and had publicly associated them with that one server?

You clearly have an agenda and it took me this long for you to admit that you're not practicing proper OPSEC by responding to me when you could of had continued on spamming that one link. This is your final warning, any more shilling of this specific matrix server is automatic deletion. No one with one braincell will shill specifically for one matrix server publicly instead of literally anything else out there both proprietary and open source. Never put all your eggs in one basket. The Feds now know, fucko.

He was also controversial for using racial slurs. The fact that the use of slurs is seen as a controversy and not just an indicator of poor mental health is perhaps part of why he is gone.

Fair enough, I don't think stock Bootstrap is that great either.
>I thought you would fix it eventually but it's been like a week and it's still the same.
I'm just one man juggling running the site itself with all the different feature requests different anons give plus obviously other non-imageboard-related responsibilities - I'm no superhero. I'll ideally get to theming by the end of this week. If you look at the commit log I've been actively adding other features people have requested for a while now.
>If you think the opinion of people on 4chan /g/ is worth anything, sure.
Any other boards you think I should pull advice from? One of the really nice things about /g/ is the number of people there means I can get feedback very quickly compared to other places. We can go back and forth about the quality of the feedback, but the turnaround speed remains. I'm quite open to pulling feedback from other places, though (like here).
>But from your choice of captcha I'm sure that's exactly your target audience.
I've noted before that reCAPTCHA was a quick interim solution meant to ward off spamming. After I finish implementing signups, Futatsu won't have any CAPTCHAs to speak of, though I'll keep the reCAPTCHA functionality in Maniwani itself. Sorry to hear reCAPTCHA v3 doesn't like you, though. Try to hang tight for a bit longer and it should be gone.

Without emails, it takes all of 3 seconds to sign up, and you never have to think about it again. I'm not sure what the issue is.
Do I then know who posts what? Yes, but broadly-speaking that's generally true for imageboards already, and it neatly sidesteps the issues that arise where you have a group of people who know their way around a VPN but have software that largely revolves around handing out bans via IP addresses. This way there are no wrong bans (unless you somehow get your credentials stolen and someone posts on your account, which shouldn't happen since your username won't be displayed anywhere) and everyone who wants to use a VPN can do so without their usage putting the site's well-being at risk.

It also opens up the possibility of users who have been around for a while getting things like a spot in a moderator election, which is something I don't think I've talked about here, but have at length on /g/.
