4chan now banned in Russia



  • Yesterday, Russian 4chan users were greeted with http://i.imgur.com/LO0hIOh.png if they tried to access the site.

    Several russian internet providers have blocked 4chan, according to one commenter the main reason was because the board /e/ had pornographic images resembling children and teens, but most internet providers just banned all the boards. Apparently, although the ban is mainly Russians, anyone who uses internet providers such as Beeline, MTS, or Rostelecom will also be faced with the ban when trying to enter.

    Obviously, russians being russians, they’ve already found a workaround and are continuing their russian posting spree on english-speaking boards.

    also quick note I don’t use 4chan before you say anything

    i know this isn’t an actual news story i just thought you should know

  • Nobody here cares.





  • Google sets up ‘right to be forgotten’ form after EU ruling

    I’ve know of people that were convicted a while ago get jobs and then later get fired when their employer searches them up out of the blue.  That can ruin a person.  A search engine shouldn’t be able to keep that stigma hanging on a person if they already paid the price.





  • Imagine, a convicted child molester getting a children related job because he was able to hide his past.



  • Now if only dota was banned in Russia.



  • They screen this stuff though.  It is case by case so hopefully that never happens.

    Google said it would assess each request and balance “privacy rights of the individual with the public’s right to know and distribute information”.

    “When evaluating your request, we will look at whether the results include outdated information about you, as well as whether there’s a public interest in the information,” Google says on the form which applicants must fill in.

    That’s their fault for being a criminal. Don’t know how it’s like in the UK but here in the states, there are entire systems in place for law enforcement agencies to pull background information on people and will hand this information out (for a fee, among other requirements). Occasionally when I do background checks for the public, there’ll be the occasional comment from people that they regret doing stupid shit but people do have a right to know about wrongdoings.

    This will definitely be abused by people who want to erase their history of doing something heinous from joe everyman, to crooked public servants, to less-than-wholesome businessmen because i’m pretty sure all of them could benefit greatly from even more information being withheld from the people they answer to.



  • To put it simply. The right to be forgotten means the content about you is still in the book, you just remove its reference from the index page.

    Dent: To work with children you require a crb check, it’s essentially a database of people with convictions that are likely to be unsuitable for certain work. Companies/organisations working with children or vulnerable adults have access to this database, and cannot knowingly hire someone that flags, legally…

    To your anecdote ChiRaeDisk, I thought it’s required by law to notify your employer of any prior convictions. If you have a criminal record, you need to make it known.



  • From my understanding, you can put down that you were convicted and all the questions about a criminal record, but employers don’t always ask the specifics.  If you answer truthfully and get though the background check, awesome.  If an employer goes online to find out what you did and sees a misdemeanor for accessory to shoplifting, they may shrug or they may fire you even though the company thought you were okay.

    Aside from someone wanting their past forgiven, it would be a shame if people convicted of a crime could never recover.  Don’t just assume I’m talking about murderers or rapists either.  There are far more common lesser crimes that are more temporary-mindset oriented.

    As for the abuse thing, just read the article.  No screening system is perfect for finding who is and who isn’t trying to simply abuse it, but things were still running somewhat smoothly without every little detail being known about everyone decades ago.  With a little less hand-picked information being available among the noise, I don’t see how it will be the fall of society.

  • Didn’t Russia also ban South Park and The Simpsons?

    They’re pretty diligent at keeping the trash out of their media.



  • I wouldn’t call South Park trash really.



  • If that’s true then they have to ban gazillion of other websites, including the Russian social network ‘Vkontakte’ which has groups with 4x more hentai and everything in it.

    Also

    Both South Park and The Simpsons aren’t banned from Russia is what I know.
    At least it wasn’t like that a year ago.

    They even wanted to block YouTube 2 years ago because of some violent video. God that was dumb. There was no way that would actually work, so you know.



  • @Mr.:

    ‘Vkontakte’ which has groups with 4x more hentai and everything in it.

    I’m not entirely sure that’s the full reason it’s being blocked.



  • @Benjy:

    I’m not entirely sure that’s the full reason it’s being blocked.

    It’s no longer under original creator controll. And noone want to close it now.
