Depends whether they want to. I've seen plenty of articles where a journalist claims they've stumbled across some extremist group chat or whatever then pastes unsourced quotes into their article. You could quite easily do that to this place if you took a bunch of quotes out of context.
It's not that this isn't true, but IMO this maneuver can be performed on literally any remotely interesting or nonconformist community, and censoring ourselves to the point we were robust to such a treatment would be the end of the board... Hell, my contributions to The French and Master&Commander threads this week would be ample material were a journo motivated.

Side note, I know Europe isn't as protective of speech rights as good ol Stars n Stripes, but what could they do to a VBulletin forum, like what would "getting shutdown" entail? (@sufi we self-hosted or through a service?)

Luckily I think we will never reach a board population that would make us a worthwhile target.

Were they on here? Or email? I thought we 'met' on dissensus? Am I forgetting something?
I seem to think we swapped zines through twitter or Instagram and then had a conversation about dissensus, and then I joined properly. Before then, I just came on that one time to promote the Dean blunt gig and ask about a tune on slackks golden era grime tape.

I'm not worried at all about the board getting 'shut down' or cancelled but I guess I'm sympathetic to versions concern for a 'raid.' I think the only thing that would derail the board is a a number of new members matching the current all join at the same time and that seems extremely unlikely. The culture we have here keeps us safe from a slow drip of characters coming in and causing a ruckus.

Regardless I dont see a point in self censure as even if we were squeaky clean from here on out weve got a whole back catalog of incriminating evidence.

Maybe it was Instagram. That would explain why I know exactly what you look like although I'm sure you've not printed your face here

I'm not talking about censoring ourselves in general, I just think Luka should be careful calling for the death of specific politicians online, particularly in the current climate.

why are you accusing me of doing that! It's you that does that! I want it on the record that it is version who is a violent agitator and rabble rouser and his inflammatory rhetoric will get someone killed sooner or later

I've already compiled a dossier of all the times he's fantasized about murdering public figures and have a draft email to Counter-Terrorism Command written and ready to send at any moment.

Oh it looks like we stopped at 20 with snoop lion

Snoop Lion? AKA Snitch Dogg?

Shug Knight might have something to say about that?

I don't know about "mega mind", but mega-fucking-tittle-tattle-sing-like-a-canary, yeah..

anyone else seen the 'Snoop Lion" film? quick synopsis: an informant for the DEA / LAPD / FBI goes to Jamaica to record an album with number one dancehall producer DIP-fucking-LO, gets shaken down by Bunny "can not sing for toffee" Wailer's girlfriend, pisses himself when he visits Kingston and the locals sniff out a rat... proper Spinal Tap laugh a minute business
