[SPAM] Where does bot spam come from? [INQUIRY] [NET DETECTIVE] (32)

1 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2021-01-07 20:09 ID:A2XHXRdb

I once uploaded Kareha onto a server I was running from home, purely just to test the software and study the code. I didn't advertise the board to anybody, and only made three test threads. Amazingly, after having forgotten about the board, and coming back a year later, I found it full of spam and links.

Everybody knows about textboard spam, wakaba's /soc/ board was removed after being spammed to oblivion, the site that wrote the original gazouBBS (futaba's sourcecode) script's demonstration boards were also full of spam comments written in English, so on, we've all seen it.

Where is it actually coming from though? Has anybody ever gone down the rabbithole of internet spam and bots? How do they find no-name sites that nobody visits? What is their end goal? Who actually runs these bots? Is anybody even running these bots or have they been on autopilot for decades? Is there a network of spammers? What is your experience with spam?

Within the past three years or so, "scambaiting" has become a popular genre of youtube and twitch content, with people investigating tech support scammers and robotcallers and whatnot, but I feel like nobody really cares about the rabbithole of people spamming on websites, when it is just as vast and fascinating.

This thread reminds me of people who begin with an interest in a group of conspiracy theorist believers (e.g. Flat Earthers) and in their journey to understand the thought process of their subjects, they gradually develop a bizarre fascination and end up becoming the very thing they initially ridiculed.

If anyone here ends up evolving into a BBS spam bot manager and/or BBS spam bot, please detail your experiences in this thread.

That spam bot has been around for a long while now. I'm guessing it was originally made to seek out blog comment sections, I've seen similar spam on those and those also have name/email fields and either HTML or BBCode formatting. Actually, just supporting BBCode is enough to summon a swarm of spambots.

Feds seek imageboards out to post CP in them to get them shut down. If the janitors/moderators are proactive removing the spam, the feds observe when the janitors/moderators are asleep to perform the spam again, or even, in the worst rumoured cases, actually become janitors and begin antagonizing the userbase to get them to abandon ship.

The grasping for last remaining straws of meaning as they're escaping our reality is getting desperate. Will Evolian cosmology, being batshit insane notwithstanding, be vindicated at last?

It's not just the evangelical boomerfaggots violently thrust on the chans by qanon facebook LARPs, you know. Neo-paganism, neo-barbarism, neo-spartanism, neo-antiquity are all the rage now on tiktok, though the kids may not even realize it. Will we live to see neo-rome arising from the ashes of that?

At the end of the classical age we realized that our commitments and norms are not written into nature or the mind of God but just our way of doing things, and we can change them if we want to. This led to the absolute freedom and terror of the French revolution and Enlightenment as human-kind attempted to redesign itself from the ground up, trying to use "reason" to structure society. But then it was found that reason was just as ungrouded and arbitrary as anything else and only contained the basic idea of self-legislation without any direction for that self-legislation to take. Thus we got stuck in our current era, half of the people don't believe in anything but the rule of self-legislation, the rule of not accepting any rule beyond themselves, and half the people believe in unrelenting dogmatism and inner conviction in an attempt to stave off the reality of freedom, that no one can hold us to our commitments but us. Thus, the two political persuasions currently in existence.

i think it is because, over the last 30 years or so, we have always despised "normal people". currently, normal people are universally preaching for things like gender non-binaryism, transgender encouragement, anti-racism (minority fetishism?), child drag events, open borders, etc. for some reason.

~2009ish. The initial lore of mini/tiny et al is unceremonious, as it was their spat with Ano**alk's mentally unstable sysop's shenanigans spammed all over /b/ constantly that gave all those "tiny" boards visibility.

In spite of her rocky start, tinychan grew to be somewhat liked over the years, as she came to the rescue of many dying text boards - https://dis.tinychan.net. The tinychan frontpage still acting as a convenient sinkhole for low quality posters to this day.

FOMO and Online Discourse (9)

1 Name: 403 - Name Forbidden : 2022-04-04 06:37 ID:3uGuTXhy

A thread on 4chan on productivity and addiction led to a discussion about Fear Of Missing Out in relation to online conversations, that due to its fast-moving (and in the case of *chans, temporary) it leads to a need to have your eyes on the screen and be glued there waiting for a response, because if you don't get in now you'll miss your chance.

This led me to thinking about how BBSs would have things like QWK and REP files so that you can pull down new comments while you upload your own comments and replies in one step, and can then disconnect. Then to wondering about a format where there would only be weekly "mail drops" where only messages sent before a certain day would get in on that drop.

I suppose the question is, do you think there's a place for a "slower" style of online discourse to take the place (only among certain people, certainly not the majority) of the faster, and FOMO-reliant, style that dominates the web now?

2 Name: 422 - Unprocessable Name : 2022-04-04 10:45 ID:Heaven

>QWK and REP

wat?

dude the main reason I'm here is because here threads don't get flushed into nothingness in seconds, but stay for years instead.

3 Name: 408 - Name Request Timeout : 2022-04-04 16:49 ID:3uGuTXhy

>>2

QWK files were packets of "mail" that had the posts between a certain date on that BBS (usually between last log-on and now) and your personal messages wrapped up into a QWK file where they could be browsed offline. The snazzy thing is that a lot of these offline mail readers allowed you to reply as well, and these would all be wrapped up into a REP file. You would then push these up as you pulled down the new posts in a new QWK file. This meant that you could effectively carry on these conversations while actually being online only once every few days.

And I agree with you on the second part.

Usenet groups are superior version of the same thing, they still exist, and no one cares.
Technologically it is a solved problem. It's not very helpful against addiction (one can just click send and receive more often) or large volume of messages (spam killed usenet).
I have already seen software restraints to emulate the 90s - "you may only send messages once a day" experimental offline-first-lifestyle mailing client at hackernews. If that can do any good is anyone's guess.

The thing is while I'm using older technology as an example, I'm also not really wanting to "emulate the 90's" beyond just seeing if it is possible to have a more "offline" lifestyle without just using modern social media (which is really what the issue is) less, but rather thinking about either a new paradigm, or even resurrecting an old one.

The actual issue of connection now is solved, but it solved, but in solving it we have created new issues that, it seems to me, has a far more negative effect on people than the flaws of the past, that being that the internet is slow.

I guess what it all really comes down to is that I am just questioning the assumptions that we make about online conversion and whether we should change how we rate it and what standards we apply to it. Why do we call a community with less than a thousand people "dead"? Why do we call a message speed such that you can check once a week, "slow"? What is actually wrong with either of these things if you go to do other things.

It seems that so many people are ready to just go for total abstinence of the technology (NoSurf) rather than a reconsideration of standards.

These are good questions. A small board does not allow for endless doomscrolling and does nothing for the addicted. People who will try to replace a big board with a small one will become discontent. Slow = "the dopamine comes slower than before".
Therefore, I can see why one will try to quit cold turkey. It's a reasonable thing to try when all else fails.

Usenet groups. Yes the absurdly large group tree is a burden and does no good. Some slashdot people had similar idea as you did and picked one already existing group and posted or crossposted all their tech-related messages into it, as an attempt to revive usenet. So it has been tried at least once in relatively recent times (2015? 2018?)

>Pony "a messenger for mindful correspondence"

I looked in to it a bit, and while it seems like a good idea, it being an app somewhat distances itself from its own mission statement. Yes, the app itself will only deliver messages once a day, but it requires the device that you (mostly) carry with you constantly. Apparently the creator didn't want to just make it e-mail, but I really don't see why, and the reasons they gave for not don't really make much sense unless the reason is purely that he wanted to make money out of it (which he actually admitted in an interview).

>1st Paragraph

This is a good point, but I'm talking about more is that it's more an issue of standards, and it could even be argued that there's elements of surrogacy involved, where people are getting the social interaction online that they don't get in the real world. It's true that for the addicted the "slow net" would either be too little of "a hit" or even that they would use the "slow net" in addition to the "fast net," but I'm more coming at it from a different angle, that is the realigning of what we expect and want from the "digital life."

I prefer the maildrop idea. Stallman replies to his emails in this manner. He downloads email through a gateway, reads and replies to them while offline, processing attached media in the way it's possible for him to do so.
When he connects, he uploads it all as a batch.

I believe he has a schedule, but if not then he does it whenever, unlike the maildrop which often has a set schedule of 1 week.

That era is over, the people are gone and those who aren't have changed enough with time to be unrecognizable. The one attempt to revive it after wakachan went down was already an impotent failure and that was when we had more people and the memory was fresher.
If you were someone from that time, please move on already. If you're someone who wasn't, just start your own online community instead of imitating a past you will never truly experience.

I miss iichan every time I browse. I don't miss having to deal with all the CP posting, though. I think I still have a few of the iichan regulars on my steam friends list.

You can bring back the place but you can't bring back the time.

This is the truth. Sadly, this is what it has come to. As well as how >>7 put it, "That era is over". The era of imageboards/textboards have been coming to a close or at least majorly dying down. Most of the people who originally was parts of various communities spread across the web have moved on or are struggling to make ends meat let alone having the time to spare to leisurely hang out online as they once did in the past. The only few that have stuck around for as long as the have either have no lives outside of their desktop computers or just mostly avoid other parts of the web clinging to a familiarity that they refuse to let go. Believe, I understand fully. I'm one of those who refuse to let it go despite all of it's vain. I'm not worried about being on a website with thousands of people. Just a small place that's active with a handful is honestly enough to keep me around checking from time to time.

New Gikopoi server dropped (12)

1 Name: 409 - Name Conflict : 2022-10-15 05:54 ID:vipeJqie

A new Gikopoi server dropped, https://play.gikopoi.com , repo overviewing changes/additions on github:153/gikopoi-illegal

No huge changes yet, but any characters/maps submitted will be approved.

The first real problem for the community to handle: how should stream slots be allocated? We can see in the github:iccanobif/gikopoi2 repo (see also: tanasinn wiki sortable table) that the rooms' stream slots are allocated in semi random ways; many rooms have 0 stream slots, while some of the larger rooms only have 2 or 1 slot.

Some ideas:

  • Give all rooms a handful of stream slots, and give some other rooms a bunch of slots. Means anyone can stream as-needed no matter where they may be.
  • Keep gikopoi2 default stream slots; why fix it if it's not broken?
  • Only give stream slots to 1 or 2 rooms, to encourage streamers/voice chatters to assemble in common spaces, and to give the rest of the server

this was to index.ts btw, right by the function #ika that turns a user into a squid.

There was also a #bee function added that turns the user into a Sageru Bee.

Needs these lines too, or a bug happens when a streamer tries to #die:

                clearStream(user)
clearRoomListener(user)
