After I've had /misc/ up for quite some time, I'm letting you guys know that I'm going to take it down.

I should have realized earlier on that having a board with little-to-no moderation was going to be a problem at some point or another, but after receiving multiple complaints about the kind of content that was being posted on the board which could be described as "nearly illicit," it's too big of a risk to keep stashed away on this site.

I hope you guys can understand my reasoning for getting rid of /misc/ and if you all can think of topic for another board then I'd be more than pleased to add it!

Your reason is a thread by Longo.

I know the Super-Admin thing is a joke but jesus either you're the same person as Longo or you're just a massive pushover to anything he wants.

I decided that it would be best for the board to be retired because of an e-mail I got which reported to me several threads containing illicit content posted on /nsfw/ that went unmoderated. I wouldn't do something that I know wouldn't be popular with this community unless I had a reason for it, and that's because I don't want to give anybody a reason to report this forum for harboring illicit content.

Hmmm. Maybe /music/ or /religion/ / /spirituality/?


I see behind your deceptively innocent persona, Admin. You want this site to be as heavily moderated as Reddit. You essentially want Stormfront 2.0. Just a forum for far right people to be far right. To you it's clear that free speech is just an optical coating to hide far right speech.

I don't know if admin actually cares about this… He'd never advertise this forum on places as infamous as 4chan if that was the case.


Sad to see it go

Are you trolling?

Don't you see what he's just pulled off? He has told me in a private convo that he does not intend to bring porn back if it is not voted that it will be. We all know him and Longo will use their many alts to make it look like the majority of users don't want porn back. The point of this whole thing was to get rid of things he didn't like. He made the site more restrictive under the guise that we would still be allowed to post like we used to on /misc/. Now he's getting rid of /misc/ and he does not intend to bring back the things it was supposed to contain back. The point of all of this was to restrict speech. And he's pulled it off and you're falling for it.

Why do you want porn on this site? Is there something you should tell us, Khaleeb?

Hate to say it but I sort of agree with Khaleeb here.

What's this all about


Khaleeb is completely in the right here. /misc/ has no illicit content that I know of. This is dumb.

Sure, get rid of the /misc/ board, but it's time to stop calling esoforum "free speech." It obviously isn't. There is a lot of moderation needed here.
