Hi a fellow federal agent,
Please go suck your pennes. While the tool might be useful for actually removing CSAM, it makes your site reliant on Cloudflare which can be possibly DDoSed / held for ransom + you are giving all the glowies OP.
I will look into it. Nice get.
This reads straight out of a mobster movie where the gangsters go to a local establishment that's opened recently and go "Ya got yaself a pretty-lookin' shop here. Real nice job with the curtains. Ya know, there's been a lot of broken windows happenin' around these parts ya see? Would be a real shame if some punks came in here and threw rocks at your windows every week. You should try to get rock-proof windows sometime soon, ya know. There's this guy I know, real friendly, he can get them for ya in no time, I can get them for ya at a discount too! Only 20% of your profits a week, capisce? Heeeey better than gettin' them windows broken all the time!"
i don't recommend enabling any proprietary in-the-cloud CSAM scanner because they auto-report such attempted uploads' destination server (ie. your site's VPS) to the FBI, and these knuckleheads will visit your home and potentially seize all your electronics since by default they assume EVERYONE including the site admin is a potential suspect and has to go through a "thorough investigation" and you don't have the expensive corporate lawyers like big corporate sites have to prevent such extortion
No Sei, Cloudflare is a thing of evil and you know it. Don't let the glowies get to you.
Honestly my vote goes towards anything that gets the illegal images off this site. I hate opening up sushichan and seeing stuff that makes me want to throw up.
It's not like there are janitors who remove it for free.
Ah shit I did have a janny user but I lost it and have been too embarassed to ask sei for another one.
Plus I never joined the moderation discord.
Harsh with the sarcasm, but I'd rather not subject our hard-working janitors to have to see that sort of stuff either…
If a janny is not ready to deal with content like that then that person shouldn't be a janny. Given what Cloudflare has already done to imageboards it would be the worst thing for every boardowner to get involved with them.
cloudflare might not necessarily be the correct solution (it's certainly not the death knell some are making it out to be), but suggesting that janitors should be made to look at genuinely disturbing content that is *somewhat predictable* and could be mitigated by software is dumb and misguided. there's obviously a level of thick skin that should be expected from a janitor on an ib, but I don't think becoming a janitor on an ib should = consenting to being exposed to child abuse??
You understand my point. Janitors should be treated with care especially because they're doing this for free. (Puts a bad taste in my mouth when I see entitled people degrade volunteered labor. No offense to the other sushi, but…)
This is what you get when you volunteer for being a janny on an imagebord. You even have to expect seeing that shit as an average poster/lurker. As it has been said, it is predictable that such disgusting stuff will show up one day.
Sigh. It doesn't have to be that way at all. That's the point of this discussion. And Cloudflare isn't the only solution out there, if that's what's rustling your jimmies.
I'm still here after all that's been posted. I DO expect to see it. I still do NOT want to see it. See my point?
