Description: In this particularly video, we'll be addressing the challenges of the modern internet, online monopolies, and of course, why people should care about Sanctuary in the first place.

Sorry this took so long to upload. I've been dragging my feet lately.

It's sad that this is so relevant, with the most recent thing in the news being the "Alex Jones is banned from everything", thing.

Pfft. I'm the best damn admin you're ever gonna meet in your sorry little life. The fact that you actually managed to get banned from that monkey cage that is Lanny's site though says an awful lot about you.

youre obviously lacking the simple skill of reading comprehension since i explicitly and expressly stated that you are the worst admin ive ever come across in all the history of being online...and that includes non-internet BBSs back in the early 80s where a direct phone number had to be 'called' with a telephone/modem.

the part that is funny in a wheelchair-bound-retard-rolling-down-a-long-flight-of-stairs-into-rush-hour-traffic funny kind of way is you dont even realize youre a hypocritical dumbfuck that grossly exaggerates your self worth.

The same thing I've been rambling about since the last time you were here. You could be a great member here if you wanted to be. But hey, I'm not your momma. You wanna keep breaking our rules that even a Down Syndrome kid could follow, that's your choice.

as if i pay attention to anything you ramble on about.

you and your petty rules. you are clueless on how to run a board and a top-tier hypocrite to try to follow the original totse 'freedom' theme, considering you mete out bans for...literally...the fucking retardedest of excuses. not reason. excuse. the downest downser-sufferer is a rhodes scholar genius compared to some of the full-tard shit you pull.

youre the one that dictates the value of the content that gets posted. the entirety of your interaction is complete and utter shit-admining and that shit rolls down hill. if you want less shit-posting...do less shit-admining. a good start would be finding a dictionary and looking up the word 'freedom of speech' and 'freedom of information'

Implying OG &T moderators wouldn't ban your ass for less than I would.

(not sure Totse was mentioned on this, not sure if there a better thread, just a quick throw)

These days you can still find former users of Totse saying they miss the old days and are sad it closed.
Even on pretty hardcore freedom of speech sites.
So not sure if it is pure nostalgia or if they just feel it was strictly better than what the options they know today.

It was absolutely better than the options today. Having said that, I'm not gonna actively try to court old totse members again. Most of them think they know what totse was but what they really want is just /b/ or Bad Ideas, The Forum.

go ahead and bring 'em over here
Nah, they seem to be of the kind "I am going to complain and hope someone can save me" and I am no hero.
It could be good for them, it could be good for the people here, but I don't see how would it be good for me.

Well, the place would be less dead for one, which equals more meatbags to converse with on a (probably) much more superior platform for you. I'd have thought that would be obvious.

Nice try, but:
as a panopticon master, I can already converse with all the meatbags - they that can't converse with each other;
it is debatable which platform is superior. Each goes for a different trade off, and my scripts homogenize them enough for me that I don't really mind one over the other.

I wish I had more to say. My personal life crisis seems to be quelling a bit, but who knows how I'll feel tomorrow. Maybe you'll see more of me. I ended up here today to post, as it is.

Just keep checking in. I may not post all the time but I like to check the site at least once a day.
