Sandbagging and you LtBarclay 04/06/2018 (Fri) 22:55:13 No. 50
This sticky will stay up until the 1st and then be moved to feedback for reference.
Sandbagging. It's a credo, it's a state a mind, it's a form of passive resistance. It's what we should all strive for, at all times.
See abusive posts? Racism? Shitposting? Got triggered? Sandbag it.
Don't fall for bait. Don't feed trolls. Cultural shift takes time. Remember when Jess left? The same thing happened.
People testing their limits. Fishing for reactions. Some so blatently obvious it's absurd, but the weak-willed or bored amoung us reply anyway.
It's not worth your time to react to shitposting, and it's not worth anyone else's to read it.
A typical thread only needs 5 replies before the oldest reply is hidden until expanded.
It would only take 5 on-topic sandbag posts to get a shitted-up thread back in a healthy state without mod intervention.
Sandbag them. No validation. No tagging their posts. Mercilessly ignore those desperate for drama and reactionary replies.
Mods are currently (at their discretion) deleting clear trolling/shitposting as a violation of rule #1 - keep content coherent to the categories.
The content boards are for content: not for dick-waving. Take that shit to /penis/.
As people learn to react less and less to shit-posting, shit-posting gets less and less amusing for those who choose to do it.
Remember how bbw-chan used to be? The emperor remembers. We had such a VAST amount of quality anons, trolls just simply couldn't get a foothold around all the top-tier discussion and content.
Let's get back there. Let's reclaim what was ours. Having rules is great, but having the collective will to fiercely stay on-topic is better.
Thanks LT. we really needed this.
Sand for the Sandbag! (Sorry I thought it was funny.)

All true say though nothing really to add. People just don't need to fan the flames.

Can someone give me a quick rundown on why Jess left?
Okay, how do I sandbag?
>>423
Ignore trolls, stay on topic. Someone posts they don't like a models hair? Post some pics of what you do like about them. Someone says a model looks like she has downs? Find her at her sexiest and post that. Sandbagging isn't some button you press, it's a choice to stay above the chaos. Either don't even dignify shitposting with a response, or 100% ignore it and get right back on topic. It's just words on a screen: don't let them drag you down to their level. When you react to them, you validate their behavior: it provoked a response and that's what they wanted.

must say LTB, something tells me you're a good egg, the ilk of which I'd like to have a beer with. keep up the good fight, nought but godspeed to you.
>unsolicited namefagging is still a thing
>MS paint circle """porn""" too
>>424
Seems like a good idea. Thanks Lt.
hear hear
>>419
Literally the best response to apoplectic reeeeeeeing in demand for you to do something. Sandbagging, as you've described, should be the default - and it pains me to think that adults have survived on this planet so long without the corresponding maturity.


>>427
Should be a safe space, amirite comrade?…
What happened to letting a chan be a chan?
>>430
No one wants 40 posts ranting about race, gender, and politics taking up the space that could be used for posting hot chicks. We have a GD board that could be used for this exact thing, plus people got learn not to feed the trolls. Sometimes people are gonna be stupid, you have to accept it, and move on.
Over moderating is what has turned this place into reddit/tumblr-lite. You created a safe space and my friends have flocked to it. You reap what you sow.
>>432
Those word filters are exactly what I'm talking about. F A G G O T S.
sandbagging. give it a chance.
>>419
> Remember when Jess left?
When the fuck did this happen?
>>432
>>433

Lol that's a pretty funny filter tbh. What other filters do they have?
>>435
This though. I saw her around like 6 months ago

Oorah, LT.

>screeching and REEEEEing about how the people who post things he disagrees with are stupid retarded my friends and how the mods need to make a rule against being a stupid retarded my friend and maybe the mods are stupid retarded my friends for not immediately complying with his demands

>thinks other people are the problem

Thanks for not listening to guys like this, Lieutenant.
>>441
This isn't real life. It's a fetish image board, the only true enemy of which is derailment.

Go swivel, crusader.
