The internet keeps getting worse and worse.

Pastebin just nuked their entire website this week by using a bot to automatically delete or private pastes without any warning to Pastebin users.

20 years of pastes on Pastebin.com since September 3, 2002 are now either deleted or privated.

Pastebin did not even bother to private pastes created by Guests and just had them automatically deleted from the website.

Here is an example of the Pastebin warning you may see when you open any random Pastebin link.

"Pastebin’s SMART filters have detected potentially offensive or questionable content ahead.

The content you are about to view has been deemed potentially offensive or questionable by our filters, because of this, you’re receiving this warning.

You can continue ahead at your own risk or go back."

For pastes that were deleted, this is the message you will receive from Pastebin:

"This page is no longer available. It has either expired, been removed by its creator, or removed by one of the Pastebin staff."

PR ramifications that stem from hosting "undesirable" content along with the recession caused by COVID-19 led most accountants that work for these websites to recommend mass-purging of content in order to reduce server strain. Think of all the websites within the past five years that now only accept content from verified/paid accounts. Now think of all the websites that began using bots with a scorched-earth policy to moderate content and subsequently wiped the entire websites content to a fraction of what it once was. Hoard HDDs and archive everything. You saw a cool video? Take the 5 extra minutes to download it. You came to some depraved shit? Save it, because it will eventually be taken down and you will never find it again. The only history that exists is what wasn't forgotten over time.

Companies have taken over the internet, and they're trying to censor things just like in traditional media.

Pastebin are a pack of cu cks. they cracked down after someone pasted the CCP spy list on their site. which is particularly weak of them.

Traditionally you used to just host a site yourself. Now you have to use discord face book twitter to host your community and content, which they have tight control over what you see and hear.

that's why it's shit

Our freedoms have slowly been taken away for the last 7/8 years smartphones and sites like Facebook were a mistake.

Is there a reason specified by them, or is it just something that was written in ToS, but it was enforced badly?

>> No.18359   [Delete]   [Edit]

We just keep seeing sites get big and turn on their users with service changes and ToS updates.

A big problem is lack of better known alternatives. a.k.a. "we made better version of x, but nobody really knows about it", so people stick to what is popular, but sucks.

Before the web was about putting you in the driver seat as you browsed the web, but now they want the drivers seat, the car and all.

I don't want to get political but it's literally what their agenda regarding the future is and it's not limited to the internet.

The sad part most people won't do anything or much about it. Even changing a web browser, much less changing the services and platforms they use.

If things continue the way they are going, we'll soon see things go to hell.

It is already Hell

Terry Davis said something really smart about where it all went wrong for computers. What he said applies perfectly to the Internet as well.

Can you post what he said?
