(I'm not a leftypol user, but did went there once just for the flags) (I'm a pol user but I go there for the lulz and shits and giggles) So yeah just to start off with that, but I feel like you people would shit on it

Both are authoritarian and share more overlap than they wish to accept.

>>122393 Well hasn't leftypol been just a culture reversal of pol from the start

>>122406 Yes. From 8kanker they always had sour grapes about /pol/ controlling the spotlight but I think some of them are okay. I've browsed their board a bit, there's some decent content on it. Mods are very ban happy. Their memetics are very shallow and lend their ideas to mirroring a lot of ideas /pol/ created through idiocy or pure shenanigans, but their idea of fun involves an abundance of words and generally over constructed ideas. I met a tranng irl that thought everything should be filed through a marxist lens. It really bothered me. We're defiling ideas to inspire zero new creations, only stagnated old world thought to apply to modern problems because lolmarxsaidso.

/leftypol/ imo was I've been on 8chan /pol/ in september 2014 (yes even before the full goobergate ban on 4chan) and it was a surprisingly balanced group of fringes – lolberts, dork enlightenment, stormfags, and eventual /leftypol/ were pretty balanced. Were it not for that month, I would probably never have taken up posting on 8chan, and the insufferable avatar known as "slovborg" that developed on 8chan's /int/ board would not exist today. I would merely be another lurker that occasionally effortpoasts. Dork enlightenment got bullied off by low effort shitposting, and /leftypol/ surrendered and decided they want to have a safespace where their views can't be challenged. This was the turning point that cemented the political fate of 8/pol/. December mod selection which turned everything into a railroaded astroturf was just the final nail in the coffin. This is why I have a strongly negative opinion of /leftypol/. Their surrender and retreat into a safespace spelled the downfall of 8chan (and myself).
