>>23270 My body is ready. Sounds a little sensationalist tho. However I'm fairly sure next election legislative will bring changes. But EU elections are coming in May not sure how things will turn out. Not just I'm not familiar with the situation and in general French politics, but as I understand these Gilets jaunes dudes all have different political background from all over the palette. In the last parliamentary FN was the second strongest party I assume it will try to ride the wave of discontent. Maybe it is doing right now. If someone could give me a quick rundown would be nice.
>>23279 Ehh. I checked - should have beforehand, but raincoat after rain - and it was the presidential when the FN (actually Le Pen) did good, compared to itself. On the last parliamentary the REM with Macron, and Sarko's party won the most seats. While FN got quite a lot votes, due to the system it didn't really matter.
>>23325 I might start it myself with brief and sometimes more in-depth descriptions of 8jim boards. They tipically fit into 5 categories:
A) Massive boards B) Porn boards C) Dead boards D) Opaque boards in which all discussion (mostly small talk) happens in generic threads that last for hundreds of posts, with none of the usual thread organization. In some cases all posters are namefags. E) "Normal" boards about some very specific theme. Sometimes surprisingly healthy.
Excluding A, B and C still leaves dozens of boards to explore. D is hard to make sense of but E has a lot of potential.
>>23309 I have known of the Librem for a year or so and there is one concern I have about it. For encrypted communications Librem will use Matrix (see note) and XMPP, and it will support regular phone calls and sms messages too. The Librem will only support encrypted phone calls and messages with other Librem phones or with people that use Matrix or XMPP. I don't have a phone but I think that (from what I've seen) people have mostly switched from phone calls and sms messages to app based communication like WhatsApp, Telegram, Messenger, Slack, et cetera. So using the Librem you may have to convince others to switch to Matrix if you want encrypted communication (it helps that there is an app for ios and android: riot). Matrix also supports bridges which would allow your Matrix client to use Telegram, Slack, WhatsApp, Discord, IRC, XMPP, and Gitter (never heard of that one); I don't think it is ideal to use any of those other than maybe the IRC bridge though (XMPP is supported in Librem's messaging app). Beside the communication inconviences, Librem still has a major appeal being your phone won't be tracking and storing your information in deceptive ways. The hardware kill-switches are a good idea as well to truly make sure your phone isn't spying on you. I still don't see myself getting a phone, but this doesn't seem to be a bad option if you can afford it.
Note: The native matrix client for PureOS (Librem's OS) is Fractal which currently does not support encryption. They plan on finishing encryption support to Fractal, but while they work on that they added XMPP so that the phone will support encryption from day one of release.
All the internet is getting mongrelized at this point. Memes from vierkanal are normally spammed by known Youtube celebrities and social networks within less than a month from it's creation, and they're also spreading islam-style over the most knit communities with their own identity. People who would be normal on facebook who can only talk about sex and sex related activities now make most of the population in vierkanal and Kohlchan. I wouldn't mind if this all lead up to waffen guys swarming the planet, but the reality is that the new users of imageboards are basically making it be another high-school playground, where everyone is trying to climb an unexisting social ladder that they themselves create. 'd like to blame the jews for this.
