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 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
I don't know about the others, but the reason I consider it okay to talk about LSD and other illegal drugs is because it's not illegal to talk about drugs, and because I don't believe the drugs that I talk about are all that harmful (with the exception of maybe speed, but I don't talk about speed without saying "by the way, if you're gonna do this you should probably take it easy because being addicted to this is not fun"). The drugs themselves may be illegal, but I don't think anyone would ever get arrested for talking about drugs, or reading a discussion of drugs on the internet.

The only conversation I recall having on Ponychan that involved heroin was about how terrible it and its sister krokodil are, and how nobody should ever do it.

>Do not use this website for planning or conducting any activities which violate United States law.
In regards to that part of the rules, it would only be if they were discussing plans to use drugs or using the site to conduct an illegal activity regarding drugs such as asking for/selling to someone.
Whether or not it's "moral" or whether the site and the staff want to allow other such discussions about drugs is a different matter.

Mostly that talks involve tripping discussion, doses, mixing them and where to get.
I don't think it's Okay .

Moderator team never considered Okay to discuss fetishes or sex stories/sex text interactions.

That's pretty much the only way to talk about drugs, though. If you can't discuss doses and mixing that rules out a lot of safety/harm reduction discussion.

Sure they did, back in the age of daily fetish threads on /chat/.

Mostly I saw doses discussions in matter of getting better trips, not 'safer' trips

I'm talking about /oat/. All fetish talks were locked or moved from there.
Sure it's not harmful to talk about what gives you boners, and it's legal by law ! but seems its NSFW. Drugs nsfw too

I see what you're saying but I'm not getting the message that "you should totally do as many drugs as possible or you're a square!!!"

It's better to talk about it than not to. That way people can hear the facts and ask questions. If they're intending on using drugs they should know stuff like "don't buy tightly packed brown weed, it will make you nauseous and you're probably funding the FARC". If they want to avoid drugs, they can learn how to avoid it better if they know more about it rather than if they have false assumptions.

It's not proper place for that. And the way discussions go there only would make them(adults or kids) more curious and demanding buy LSD. Because I was there and people been actually trying to convert me and prove me that "LSD is good. ,"(quote)

"LSD is good" is an opinion. Nobody's trying to convert you or get you to do drugs just by saying that they're good. Especially if it's just a response to "Drugs are bad" (quote).

Well, there is no open mind discussions and nothing about side effects. Only about how good is getting on them with lucid. I had to be just one voice of reason. And it's getting old. Because people are now daily discussing getting high on illegal substances.

It should be moved at lest to >>>/dis/
I heard mods recently started to move nsfw content talking there. But I was thinking moving it to chat would give the board second breath

Honestly, the affect the discussion about drugs leaves on me depends on the "tone of voice" the person has, or the message they're trying to give. I mean on one hand, there are people that are just discussing experiences and/or effects in an objective manner, and then there are the more commonly found "Oh my god I'm so high right now wooooo" kinds. I've been seeing lots of the second kind lately, and not only is it bothersome, it might count as you know, trying to show doing drugs as a good thing or something. I think that is where things should stop.

So what I'm saying for short is, I fucking hate it when people get high and start acting obnoxious, bragging about how much high they are. It is disrupting.

I know how that is, I stopped hanging out with a lot of people like that. Most of the time it has nothing to do with the drugs they were on, it's just that they're an idiot. I've seen people I know act like that on the placebo effect and just... there are times you need to point out your disgust.

Honestly I would rather just stay away than "point out my disgust". Disgust is too strong a word anyway. I just don't want to spend time with people that act weird and go preaching about how great it feels to pump your brain with chemicals, and that everyone should do it. They can just go hang out with their fellow potheads, or whatever we are supposed to call them these days.

Often it's just people talking about what they like just as with any other hobby, but it's generally understood that trying to force it on someone is just a scumbag thing to do. A lot of people don't know how much of a fuckup they're being unless they're told because they think it's the cool thing to do and never question it.

That is the first kind of discussion about drugs I was talking about, and I honestly think that is acceptable. It is more civil. Only one or two posters are able to talk about their experience at that objective and proper level. The rest seem to just hit it and you can oh so easily tell they're in the right mind.

What matters is, the site is not restricted to 18+ like 4chan is. Underaged people are actually allowed in here, and we cater to them as well.

Considering how annoying they tend to be it probably ends up the opposite effect.

And yeah, I just remembered the amount I've talked to that actually know what they're talking about and aren't too dumb and excited to actually talk about something in a way that makes sense. Hm... I feel the urge to find the idiots and ridicule them...
>> No. 160012 ID: afa07e
That's actually kinda funny, because the old search description was far different; something along the lines of "a place for fans of My Little Pony to gush over the world of Lauren Faust" or some such thing; and was only changed to the current one after another site's description was found to be "an imageboard for older fans of the show “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic”" and Ponychan powers-that-be wanted to seem like they were more appealing and inviting to the /mlp/ crowd that was dispersing elsewhere. A minor aside.

You never know. Just because we assume they have the opposite effect doesn't mean they do. For all we know, somebody might be looking at them and actually wanting to let things go for once, like them. Not everyone thinks with the same train of thought, after all.

Don't ridicule them, just go and talk with the civil ones if you want to though.

Huh, or maybe Lauren left the show and they thought the description wasn't too relevant anymore.

I don't see that happening so much myself.

We are talking about illegal substances.
So, probably every single drug. Except weed, since it fits the law rule.
Still I prefer seeing weed stuff on more mature boards as dis or chat.
Well, you don't notice it much, probably because you have a life and doing something other than refreshing oat.
That's bad tendetion too, but it's probably legal in most non Arabic countries. Still I'd move them to gala or chat.

Main problem about that is its NSFW contend to begin with (drugs), probably scaring away people as Thauma and me. Maybe some new posters. It's also +18 stuff and illegal . read the thread tho.

No, I'm saying that it's not actually against the rules and you're just using the kids thing as an excuse to push your "stop liking what I don't like" thing.

I'm also saying that you have a poor grasp on the English language and tend to misunderstand most of what you read, your OP was a mess that was hard to understand, some of your responses barely make any sense, and now you have the whole overly retarded quote thing strawmanning people who disagree with you. Do you just automatically assume anyone who enjoys recreational drugs is a complete piece of shit?

So no, my point is that it's a conversation people have about their interests and you don't need to enjoy it, you don't have to agree with it, and you don't even have to keep reading it. I am saying you shouldn't give a fuck, not slurred or throwing in "nerds" for no apparent reason, just because people are doing something within the rules that they enjoy.

So do you have anything to say actually based on my posts or are you just here to complain about and insult people with different interests?

I think it's at least a sensible thing, since talking/bragging about illegal drug use is in a way a questionable thing.

/dis/ is a kill board, half of the threads on the front page haven't had a post in over a month. Other than the thread with no replies posted two hours ago, the most recent post was three days ago. At this point /dis/ isn't serving a purpose unless people want to come back in a few days to see if they have a single reply.

threads entirely dedicated to drugs used to be regularly pruned on this board. i dunno exactly what happened to that but i miss it. i consider that stuff nsfw and if i was browsing in public i wouldn't want to see it.

You can say you want to or will all you want, it's illegal to actually possess or distribute them, or actually act on that. Talking is perfectly legal, you don't get arrested for it. That's why. Just like how you can talk about all kinds of illegal stuff but not actually use the site to do the illegal stuff.

That's kinda been explained repeatedly over the years for a lot of subjects... you know that.

Okay, so actually admitting that you have it and are using it doesn't count as possession since when? I mean on an online website, that's as close as you can get to it.

Since always. Not enough evidence for a warrant considering it's some jackass on the internet. Actual proof, not including pictures that are supposedly of what you own because of how easily that picture can be found online, is a different matter. Talking about what you have done isn't illegal because it generally can't be proven. Posting on an imageboard isn't evidence that a court will take seriously.

The act of being on the drug isn't a charge either unless it's a public intoxication or DUI. The real things that could get someone in trouble at home are possession, distribution, and production.

But yeah, point is it's not illegal. There are even sites based on information for production, drug effects, and safety precautions.
>> No. 160042 ID: b655d9
The rules don't actually say that. Here:

"Do not use this website for planning or conducting any activities which violate United States law."

Now, Ponychan isn't drugs, so the 'conducting' part is already accounted for. Planning could be done, people would have to discuss doing drugs at a certain place and time. Doesn't happen either, to my knowledge - and if it is "move it to /chat/" is not at all a solution.

>Okay, so actually admitting that you have it and are using it doesn't count as possession since when?
It isn't evidence. Watch.

"I have in my possession, two metres of cocaine in my household, which I will consume at 0200 hours tonight."

So what I'm wondering is, since when does say, announcing your age in 4chan warrant a ban, but announcing you're using drugs not count? Aren't they supposed to be similar in the way that you're admitting to breaking the rules of the website?

It is against the rules to post on 4chan if you're under 18. It is not against the rules to post on Pchan while on drugs.

That's how. I don't see how you're missing the main point of talking about it is fine as long as you don't USE the site to ACCOMPLISH the act. Caps for stressing the words, not rage yelling.

I see what you mean, I think. So the difference is that for one the website is the tool, and in the other it has nothing to do with the act apart from being a "witness"?
Hm, well this issue aside, since I think you're right about it, what about the fact that we actually welcome underage posters here, and some people actually do promote drug usage, and they may be adversely affected from it?

i dont think even doing it around kids here should be banned. Well, I mean it -should-, but under current rules it shouldn't.

we have plenty of other people spewing enough crap to mess up the more impressionable users here anyway. between believing in ghosts and magic spells, being encouraged to change genders at the slightest hint of dysphoria and the ever-looming threat of growing up to become manley, we've already lost the battle on that front

No. I'm saying that it's against the rules of 4chan to be under 18. It's not against the rules to say you're high on pchan because that doesn't violate US law and being high itself isn't against the rules.

Under 18 on 4chan = against the rules
high on Pchan = not against the rules

Bans are generally based on doing things that are against the rules.

We talk about a lot of things underaged posters shouldn't do. Again, we talk about drinking. If you want to talk about things we can't talk about on here if we don't want kids affected then there's also smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol, profanity, any lewdness, and violence or other law-breaking topics that don't involve breaking the law itself.

The entire rule about breaking laws on the site would have to be changed to even discussing illegal activities if we want to avoid anything that could possibly affect a kid's decision.

That's why I see the kids thing as a trojan horse tactic instead of an actual argument because it's something added onto a particular dislike people have. I don't see anything about completely removing any discussion that would involve being anything considered a bad role model. If it's only used on a particular subject instead of being something that people care about on its own, then I don't see a reason to treat it more as an attempt to guilt people into doing what they want. See my point?

And depending on the situation, if interest is there I'd support any adult's decision to try it if they're aware of the consequences and have a safe environment for the experience. It is something that has greatly helped me make improvements and reduce stress. I've made some bad decisions, of course, but I'd also try to help people understand how and why to avoid them.

I'm not really using kids as a trojan horse. I felt that you might think I am too, and then I realized, that it's actually just not kids I'm concerned about. Anybody can get influenced when they see multiple people encouraging a certain act, it may start making them think like maybe, it's worth a shot.
And I don't think that should happen.

It doesn't change the fact that they're doing something illegal! I had a long talk before about how you can stay safe when you use substances and things like that, and I understand that, but that still doesn't change that you could end up in jail because of it. Do we really want people to be coming here and ending up thinking giving something like that a shot is okay?
If it was entirely out of their free will, I couldn't say much to that. But when you have a group of people promoting it for them, then they might start getting ideas. You can say it's still their free will to do it or not, but you can't deny that they might decide to do drugs while they wouldn't have done it before they had seen other people talking happily about it, saying how great it is.
>> No. 160055 ID: 2beab5
I know you're not trying to use it as a trojan horse, that's more of a MBP thing and a lot of other people I've seen violently against it over time. You seem to have good will but... some really awkward values about personal responsibilities.

I already gave my view on whether people should nurture the urge and in what situations. It is a risk, but it's also something that can really help people, and in many cases I'd say it's worth the risk if done right. It is a good thing in the right situations.

People are responsible for their own thoughts and decisions. I understand the concern, but it's still their choice and anyone can tell you that "because other people do it" is a damn stupid reason to try anything. They know what the risks are, they decide if it's worth the risk. There's a certain line of protecting people from themselves where things just get ridiculous, and stopping people from saying that X isn't horrible just so they don't make a fool of themselves is past that line.

People are responsible for themselves, but that doesn't mean we should just stop caring about how they might be affected, because they will. When you put the components of the situation, I mean like
doing drugs
promoting bad behavior
separately they aren't too bad, but the fact that they are all together, -and- it is all wrapped up in a nice little illegal, potentially life ruining package is not exactly what I would want to subject people to.
I know it doesn't necessarily ruin lives. It's just that I've seen at least two or three people in Ponychan that have completely become bound to their substances and have no shame in telling others how much they love their experiences. Honestly, I feel sorry for them, and I would like other people from having a similar experience in the future. It's just sad to watch.

Please do. Fucking hell, I used to be friends with her, feels like. These days I only see her when she's tripping on something, and it's just so fucking painful to watch. She's ruining herself. I can't even say anything, I don't know enough about the topic to say anything.

Please no. Ponychan has too much 18+ material as it is. Honestly, I am partly to blame myself, so not much room to speak for me.
>> No. 160062 ID: 2beab5
No, I think she fucked up and took too much. I'm kinda worried too, but considering this isn't just something someone told her to do on here it's best to have her say it just so people can talk to her and help calm her down. I don't, however, think it's much of a site issue. It's kind of annoying and it was a mistake but you're talking about what someone chose.

If someone gets way too drunk and depressed it's not a good thing, but it's not a thing for the site to take action against.
>> No. 160063 ID: 950afd
We do take actions against suicide threads tho. It seems what she's doing might be close to that
>> No. 160068 ID: 2beab5
I'm sorry but I think you're just too stuck in your point. Look at what Marcy mentioned, all those can cause damage to someone's life. Someone may be convinced to quit a job, someone may lose their shit over tulpa stuff, someone might think they're trans and cause a lot of issues trying to force it when it was just a whim.

However, people are affected by every single human interaction they have. Slightly or heavily depends on the event, but their mood, their views, their decisions, everything is changed by interacting with people. A part of life is taking what you learn and making decisions based on it. Drug talk isn't bound by other rules and may not be as harmful as other topics. Protecting someone from hearing something they could make a mistake over is a ridiculous amount of work for something that's their own responsibility in the first place.

And with that I'm done with this, it's repetitive and pointless. I'll continue to speak positively about things I feel positively about, though again, circumstances are key.

Also about to log on old skype and see if I have Sam on there. It looks like she's fucking up more than I did at her age.

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 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.

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.

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

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.

The only one who is worthless in this whole situation is you.

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.

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?

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

•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.

holy shit on my phone it shows up as like, an image - not a text character. It shows up almost like the mod icons next to a mod tag.

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.

And as easy as it sounds to say "throw my body in a ditch", but people will likely want to pay for your funeral too. And if you don't got insurance for that, crudely stated, your death will be a real financial doozy.

If I drown myself in the river the police will have to come find me. The work they put forth will justify their jobs and make them money!
