Before I could make this thread I had to fill out a captcha. Problem is that while doing that each pageload took five minutes and I encountered three nginx 404s, three cloudflare 504s, two cloudflare 503s, and two varnish 503s. This will be my fourth attempt at posting this thread.
You know what it feels like?
It feels like taking a big fat shit on Moot's dumb fucking face.
So the captcha is fucked. So posting is fucked. So loading threads is fucked. So board claims are beyond fucked. So board creation is fucked. So the catalog is fucked. So board paging is fucked and limited. So board moderation is fucked and locked down. So mod login is fucked. So the global moderation is a fucking circlejerk. So the major boards are as a result fucked. So the minor boards are fucked from being on shitty servers and having spam up the ass, inability to post, and gradual abandonment. So report form is fucked and as a result of this and general global neglect there's bullshit pedo links all over the place.
So Hotwheels is fucked. So Josh was always beyond fucked. So Jim is fucked six ways to Sunday. So the IRC faggots are the fucking cancer killing what's left of the site. So half of the exodus was the worst sort of fucking faggots and most of the "good" posters pussied out and went back to 4chan or split off to various shitty goon-inspired chans. So feds are probably sniffing around more than ever. So we can't trust anyone running anything (did anyone really not see that coming, after the bullshit 4chan's mods pulled and moot let them, nay helped them?)
None of these posting errors are any worse than posting was during the last two brief hosts before we went on 2chan's servers; even at peak traffic, it never was as bad as that. Remember? Remember the site being down half the day every other day? Not knowing what would happen tomorrow? Loading up that stupid fucking Twitter feed to see if it was even still around, and usually there was no word yet, or word was HW didn't even know if it would still be around? I remember. I could never forget it if I tried.
Remember? Have you forgotten so soon? Leeky Forums would be dead by January. Of course it would. Remember what year it was. It was January 2015. I mean, come on! There's no way something like this backwards cis triggering shithole would ever survive. Dead in the water. You'll all come crawling back to 4chan. No way man, not in 2015. Well maybe the rest of you faggots haven't looked at the calendar, or maybe you're all weak shits giving your browsing info to Hiroyuki in the next browser tab over, but I remember. I was never banned. I didn't come here for /pol/ or for GG or for /tv/ or for /sp/ or for /a/ or for /jp/. I came here for Leeky Forums. Leeky Forums without some fat fucking cunt telling me what I can and can't say, censoring people for micropolitics bullshit I didn't care about in the first place. I came here to hear what people really wanted to say without being banned for it. I heard a whole lot of bullshit and a few good things, and I never fucking went back.
>I understand your frustration
I can't say that I share it. What the fuck did you think? As soon as Jim hosts it'll all be smooth sailing, no more uncertainty, no more people rabidly spamming and DDoSing and trying to drive us extinct? Fuck's sake, there were worries and dire predictions and aspersions cast about this from the very day it was announced, and all of the faggots trying to get rid of Leeky Forums from within and from without seized on it and spread it around as retarded paranoia, to make everyone mad but also to discredit the legitimate concerns it started with. No, I knew it would be rocky sailing. I knew when Josh was taken on that it was a bad idea. I warned you all way back then, before things ever started going bad. But it doesn't much matter. One way or another, it's always going to be a struggle to keep Leeky Forums alive: more of a struggle than 4chan ever was. The world is a lot different than it was in 2005. As soon as we get back on smooth sailing with posting, expect something new to fuck it up, or more likely, just expect a hell of a lot more spam from entire organizations determined to see Leeky Forums fall.
Just coming here as a user, posting a few comments, is always going to be rough in some way.
Joke's on them, though, that's just how I like it.
