Dear /Meta/

With sorrow I have to report here about increasing amounts of drugs/illegal substances discussions on our beloved board /oat/.

It makes me worry. I heard it's legal to use drugs called as weed on Washington, that's why people consider it's OKAY to talk about coke, LSD and other stuff.

Maybe I can understand why there is weed discussion about tripping , because rules said it's allowed due Washington law. But really. We have underage posters, we have people from other states/countries where weed is not allowed. It disturbing them. (Mostly me)

Can we move weed discussion to >>>/chat/ or to >>>/420blazeit/

And what should we do about LSD, acid, heroin, chem overdose and other drugs discussions? (Not weed)

i sort of get what you're saying, but a "chill ban" isnt going to help someone's drug habit dude. yeah, it'll get them out of your face so you dont have to watch it but they're still gonna be fucked up

i dont like having to see that stuff any more than you do, but banning people isnt a method of solving it

You both care about Sam in your own way so stop throwing insults at each other and do whatever you want to do about it.

I think we all agree that what we want is not just straight out ban people in situations like these, but make sure that they happen as little as they can, try to speak them into acting rationally, and then keeping themselves in an appropriate place while they partake in whatever drug usage they're taking part in.

I mean shit, both of you are wanting to help Sam -and- accusing the other side of not wanting to help her out. Can't you see that?
>> No. 160078 ID: 2beab5
>>160077
No honestly I think MBP is worth less than the shit I took this morning and yelling more about rules than Sam, and when someone's having issues like this and all they can think of is shoving it to the side then I start wondering how they don't puke when they see a mirror.

Anyway, I think I said everything I have to say and calling a worthless piece of shit a worthless piece of shit isn't going to do much, especially when the dumb slav can't comprehend a sentence I say. Also god damn digging through all these old contacts is a pain, I can't even remember who used to go by what.

I know it's pretty useless to tell you this, but please focus on getting in contact with Sam and if you want to add to a discussion, stick to the discussion itself.

Flailing at OP with insults doesn't add anything useful. Stick to your arguments on topic and if you're getting pissed off, take a break from the thread.


Anyways. I agree for my own, bans in this can never be the right answer. Though I do hope we won't keep getting druggie thread after druggie thread.

Oh gee fuckin' whizz, I sure love when one friend of mine throws a heavy insult at another friend of mine.
You -can- talk about the issue at hand -and- try to help Sam out at the same time. My guess though is that she doesn't know Sam as well as you do, so it makes sense that you're acting closer to Sam than MBP is. It's the same reason I drew myself away from the situation; because I realized it's better to let others with better connections handle it.

Yeah I get that you're frustrated but calling people worthless is kinda uncalled for.

This thread does suck though, it's our semi-regular "please remove thing I don't like/understand" thread.

The morals of having a site open for kids but meant for adults to be able to discuss adult things freely are definitely not right when stuff like this comes up, so we really should just stop allowing kids to post here. I honestly think that's the best solution. But then that would also open this whole other Pandora's Box of "Ok now why can't we post porn?" that nobody wants.
>> No. 160085 ID: 82f2ba
>>160083

A suicide threat is universally bad and you can give people easy access to materials that help them immediately with hotlines, etc. it being closed it primarily because we as people are not qualified to help anyone in such an unstable condition

we cannot send drugposters to rehab or get them to detox. the two situations are not even close to comparable and it's admittedly a little bit disgusting that you're comparing someone on the verge of putting a bullet in their brain to someone who's high on whatever the fuck.

Thread where we talked about drugs for a couple of posts before MBP whined, we mentioned it wasn't against the rules, thread happened and something about a battlefield invitation.

Honestly, jousting would have been way cooler.

The only one who is worthless in this whole situation is you. Really first of all you doesn't even consider other feelings then Sam...She or he isn't the only person with freaking problems in the world you know. MBP had a lot of her own problems so don't you even dare talking shit like that ever again to her when you don't even know anything.

Second learn some empathy for everyone not the only person you care about cus really that just make you look like a huge dick.

Third I didn't see MBP even said single insult to anyone, She is always polite and has a lot of empathy so really learn from her.

Truth enough thought you don't really know is she write truth or just seek attention cus really if someone would triping I am pretty sure it would be too hard to write stuff like
"I am vibrating
Everything is shaking "
So yeah.... my second thought is what can you really do about it? If she want do it she will do it and talking won't change anything. You guys are not professional psychologies or anything....
so answer is nothing so yeah....
Sorry for being so honest but really worrying about someone thought internet is kind pointless unless you have her/his address and you can call someone to get them help.

Here's a personal opinion:

Ponychan, and it's moderators by extension, are not your mother.

The site is not responsible for the shit you do as a result of interacting with it.

Sexual threads are moved because reasons.

Threads about drug use are not moved because they do not break the rules as explained by people more knowledgeable than me about the fact, in this very thread.

If a child see's people talking about drugs on here and decides to try some, i can understand the viewpoint of ponychan being at fault for that.
However, i also reserve the right to call and/or think of you as a dingbat for sincerely having that viewpoint, when the actual people at fault are the child's parents and/or guardians.

If a child hears a news story about the effects of drug use and decides to try drugs based on that, is the news station at fault?

160106
>>160104

I dunno if people were arguing about the accountability of ponychan so much as "I don't want people to be doing this in general on here"

It's a bit different than a news station in that this is supposed to be a pretty close-knit group of dudes on here. In a lot of cases, I've seen it displayed that people will indeed follow the leader when it comes to a situation like that, as "friends" on the internet are a lot more interpersonal a source than say, a news station, or a movie, or a video game. It just comes down to "real people" that you know saying things always seeming a lot more enticing and acceptable than a random stranger or whatever

I still don't support banning it because I think it's a lost cause and to effectively do it you'd have to ban a ton of other stuff, but I totally see where people are coming from

Well sucks to be them then, as it's entirely up to the admins what happens on here and to that i simply respond
>Admins caring about the site.

As for your other point;
I guess, but i once again point out the fact that it's not the responsibility of ponychan to look after 'the children' who should have been instilled with enough sense of self that they wont succumb to peer pressure over the Internet.

... oh- i-i'm sorry guys.
I guess I'll clarify a few things and put a few of my opinions out there.
•I've been having a pretty rough past two years, from completely shitty health, moving far from friends/family, trying to cope with bad coping skills by using even worse coping skills, and (what caused the more recent over-the-top drug use) a sad mutually unwanted breakup.
•I don't think anyone should do the stupid shit I've done. Drugs or otherwise. It's dangerous and scary and drains fun out of doing anything while sober.
•I'm a girl. I've even got the little ♀ symbol. C'mon. srs guis.
•I was so completely out of it I didn't even know I had posted on the chan anytime after that thread on /oat/ about college books.
•I typically don't post and spout the "lol im high doodz" mentality because I hate it myself. I think I'd been doing so recently because I wanted to be a petty bitch and "get back" at sssssssomeone who hadn't wronged me in the first place. And prob'ly to find other people to have conversations with about this stuff.
•I don't use Skype anymore. I might someday, and if I do it'll be under a new name and all. Just so ya know.
•I never intentionally tried to kill myself with drugs, but I've hoped before. A couple times. and the recent trip i way over did it, went on for two days and this morning took +1,000mg with over 18,000mg guaf so... i was hoping a little more than usual.
•I'd like to say I'm done for good because of a realization/epiphany I had. I'm not addicted and my stubbornness/determination is pretty strong and even annoying at times. Mind over matter and all that. i know everyone says that but i don't have physical dependence and any mental dependence was from supreme boredom/depression. i've done hard runs like this before though not quite the same and been fine for months after
•I know I sounded like a total jackass and I wish I hadn't have posted it for the sake of others not being worried.
•I think drug discussion is fine, so long as it's primarily a sober conversation and not glorifying using drugs. Being a douchey person and posting "lel im high so fun" should warrant enough criticism and disdain from the posters that mods wouldn't need to control it. Mmhm.
•and thank you, to all you guys, caring and being concerned. I didn't mean to worry anyone.

If anyone still wants to contact me, I'll leave my email.

I moved a bunch of those, especially when they were reported.

I probably would do this more often still if I find a thread labelled "ghey stoner thread".
I don't think it would be fair to simply remove all of Fleur's threads cause they're implied ghey stoner threads.

Meh, the messy thing is that if I do that it would be necessary, to be fair, to remove all social threads to /gala/. And I don't wanna go there to make a caricature of the rules.

If you see a ghey stoner thread that's not been moved, you can report it still.

Yeah, everyone does stupid shit.
I have a hard time hopping on the intervention bandwagon because of all the shit I've personally done. It's your own body and you can do with it what you want.

I've had friends who have committed suicide for realzies. There isn't much you can do about it if they are dead set.
The only thing you can do is be there for them if they want to talk. I get that it might be annoying to listen to someone high, but if you're really concerned about someone killing themselves, it seems like the type of thing you would be willing to momentarily put up with.

> It's your own body and you can do with it what you want.

Not to derail, but I would add that despite your body being your own, your life is intertwined with anyone you interact with and with people who also invested in you.

When you ruin yourself, you're bound to drag others with you and that is something you shouldn't overlook.

Maybe to an extent emotionally, but
if someone is determined to spiral out into oblivion, there isn't a lot you or I can do to stop them. At some point, you got to let them do what they got to do.
If there's one thing you own in this life, its your own bag of meat. I can say "be careful, I care about you" if I'm assuming you haven't thought about the consequences, but the final choice is in the individual's hands.
