Personally I feel like the mods have kept most of the crap in check. People usually know what to hit the deport button on. The jew-conspiracy crap usually gets taken down quickly for example. (Though the people who usually push that tend to whine about it a lot.)

However, since we have "honeypot" issues, a lot of us do have to watch what we say regardless. The purge is growing. Americanthinker.com had to completely shut down comments because of leftist trolls and honeypot issues.

Anything we say can and will be used against us. Yes, we are in a civil war, but it's an infowar. We are definitely being hunted, slandered, manipulated, and dehumanized, but most of this is occurring online. And, believe it or not, there are still viable alternatives to shooting each other. It is not time for bullets.

I fear a lot of those 1776 and "tree of liberty" posts from last month may have been FBI trying to rile us up into violence so they can put us down for good. We are NOT in a good situation. But it doesn't mean we don't have paths forward.

There have always been a bunch of nitwits here who upvote every post without regard to its content or even the headline. A couple of people even posted about they'd created apps to do this automatically. I suggested a little while ago that the post upvote arrow be moved to where it's only accessible from the post page, so people would have to at least open the post before they could upvote it.

Dude, accepting your argument mean James Madison was a nitwit for organizing the Boston Tea Party, Paul Revere was a nitwit for calling Patriots to arms against the tyrant, and Patrick Henry was a nitwit for giving his life to help secure your God-given rights entrenched in the Constitution. We have to be mature about discussing things, not spew knee-jerk reactions about "violence bad." Your forefathers were freed and secured your freedom through "violence." And by your reasoning, Abe Lincoln was a nitwit, not the greatest or second greatest president we've ever had. And George Washington was a nitwit too.

I so understand that. I feel so sorry for those people who are being sunk financially due to these shutdowns. I can't believe how they're just being ignored as if they don't exist by our politicians and the Democrat Fake News Media. I had a similar experience during the Obama years and no one would believe that my family was being destroyed by Obamacare but we were. it breaks my heart to see another whole swatch of families and business owners go through this.

As for the family members who have loved ones who have died alone because of COVID. How could our politicians and our medical workers be so without mercy? Then to see some people even being mocked for complaining about it. Such as that one family in which all the grandparents were lost this year and none of the children or grandchildren could see any of them or have funerals for any of them? What the heck kind of civilized society would put up with this?

I understand why people want to do something. Trust me, I do. However, wiser and cooler heads have to prevail or we're just going to enter into a spiral of violence causes cartharsis causes retaliation which causes more violence.

Proudly_Deplorable 2 points ago +2 / -0

While I'm certainly not endorsing that viewpoint, how could the FBI, Democrats and pearl-clutching RINOs have any problem with anyone joining with Antifa and BLM? They seem to be untouchable darlings in cities across the country.

1
Smurfection 1 point ago +1 / -0

In specific cities with a precise political make up - only cities in which there was a Democrat Governor, Democrat mayor, Democrat or leftist city council, Democrat DA and Democrat chief of police. Take Minneapolis, my home city for instance, the Governor is Democrat Tim Walz. The mayor Jacob Frey is a lefty. The city council voted to defund the police and is so radical, even San Francisco would have problems with them. Furthermore, all our police chiefs for the last four years have been identitarian nuts who are big into "restorative justice" and our flippin AG actually IS part of Antifa, Keith Ellison. Do you even have to wonder why antifa and BLM get away with everything and anything in Minneapolis and conservatives get the book thrown at them? The U.S. representative of that district is Ilhan Omar and the Senator is Amy Klobuchar and a Planned Parenthood director, Tina Smith. Why on Earth would you even think in a million years, these people would hold antifa or BLM to account? Ya know where this isn't happening...Duluth Minnesota. St.Cloud Minnesota. Rochester Minnesota. It's not for the lack of Antifa/BLM trying though...it's because all of those cities have mixed governments that are not 100% on the left.

This is an entirely ridiculous idea. Antifa/BLM were only successful because they served the purposes of the left. They are the quintessential useful idiots. Without their 100% Leftists govenors, mayors, city councils, DA's and chiefs of police, they would not be able to act as they did and they would have been broken up. We know this because they couldn't even act in purple areas and got routed and arrested everywhere they tried. You think they burnt the police department in Minneapolis because Mayor Jacob Frey was trying to stop them? No, Jacob Frey deliberately and purposefully told the police to abandon the police station. They all knew what would happen then and if they wanted to stop it, they could have, quite easily.

Also, did you not notice that since Ferguson, the media has downplayed, lied and outright fabricated to portray BLM as a civil rights organization? On several occasion, prominent national media talking heads stood in front of burning buildings and called the riots "mostly peaceful." Jerry Nadler, one of the top ranking Democrats in congress, flat out said Antifa didn't exist. In fact, that's been the talking point the entire leftiest political, entertainment and Fake news establishment has being saying since Trump's inauguration.

Antifa and BLM did not accomplish anything. They simply were used as dupes to accomplish the will of Democrats. They still are too. Don't for a second think that tiny little riots against Biden work against Biden. They are for show so Biden and few other dems can now pretend they are against extremism and play act as if they are in favor of law and order.

How do you trust if say you are legit others, aren’t playing you from establishment? And if you are the others - how do you trust the one guy? Who did the FBI put legal pressure on? Why? What is effect?

It's not a strange point to make when your answer to "the fight being bigger than Trump" is to double down on it being about Trump.

For years I just laughed at the left and their claims about cult of personality, but in less than a month on this site I have come to realize there may be something to it.

Therefore I think there is a point that can't be hammered home enough. Trump wasn't the movement, he was the avatar of it.

Exactly. I don’t know what is with these idiots (sorry, but when I hear people say it. I think they’re lowkey shills) pushing the, “they’re bigger than us.”

It reminds me of the Capitol manipulation where people talked like big shots.

We are here because of Trump like you said. There is nothing “bigger” than Trump. Talking on the Internet supporting right side politics and having support of a President is one thing. Talking about right side politics on the Internet without the guy who started the movement though and thinking you’re “bigger” than him, is actually amusing. Cause nothing will get done.

Additionally, it’s gross how everyone turned their backs on him, and what he went through. His own supports don’t need to divide and leave him in the past too and think they don’t need him. That’s what the loser false Republicans aka rinos did.

I truly believe the idiots who say this are shills, or want division and the support for him to die now when they say this BS.

Also there will never be another person in the running like Trump who did what Trump does and will do. So, good luck to their BS “we’re bigger than him.” That’s a good way to officially kill the Republican Party.

Agree with you.

We only avoided The Hildebeast because Trump was the only American with the guts to stand up and actually do something.

Trump wants what America wants. He was just the only man who worked hard and risked (possibly now gave) everything to give it to us.

He GAVE it to us at great cost to himself, his family, and the people who worked with him. He GIFTED our hearts desires to us on a silver platter, bought and paid for with toil and sweat.

And in one fell swoop, the sick despotic cabal of criminal fucks took it all away from us. Everything HE accomplished. Undone. In a snap.

He gave us everything we wanted, and they took it away.

And we did nothing.

No. WE have to be the MAGA movement. If WE want to Make America Great Again, then WE have to get up off our needy asses and Make America Great Again. This is OUR Movement. This is OUR America. It's bigger than any one man. It has to be.

Anything less than that, and we'll lose everything.

GOP will do to Patriot party what they did to Tea Party: send establishment GOP candidates to infiltrate, primary party candidates and strangle the party in its crib. Democraps did the same thing to Occupy.

Besides, I have to question the viability of bothering with any political party at all when we all just saw what they do to our votes.

15
Wascally 15 points ago +16 / -1

WRONG!!!

The Tea Party WAS GOP . . . and was a move to pull the carpet out from underneath Ron Paul.

And every first "leader" was a GOP big government hack like Michelle Bachmann.

When Rick Santilli "supposedly" went "rebel" he announced the official website four hours later - full feature dynamic page generation database back ended with full art graphics and banner customizations already in place.

There was nothing organic about it - it was a split maneuver to take out Ron Paul.

And that is why ever since, the Tea Party has basically been non-existent on the political scene since...it served its purpose - its job was done.

Ted Cruz was a grass roots insert - by the establishment. There used to be a Youtube channel by a person who was there when Ted Cruz first started in Texas with a website link telling the Ted Cruz story. Basically he shows up, folks running a grass roots meeting declare "He's a great guy, person we should be standing behind and voting for..." The rest of the folks at the grass roots meeting were like "Who the hell is this, never seen him, we're supposed to get behind someone in a suit that we've never seen?..."

Dude running the channel and website even had a couple of short video clips from that meeting and commentary from several others who were there.

Channel with its website link have been gone for a decade.

isn't a general's job to assess plans, to determine their flaws/weaknesses and choose the best one to move forward with? which includes being aware of how and why a plan CAN fail, because all plans CAN fail? and yet he... supposedly... saw some kind of plan of trump's, and determined it was 10 out of 10 infallible. just look how wrong he was. monumentally wrong. should that guy have ever been a general?

That was just psyops aimed at our enemies. Check through the history of President Trump's bold claims, and you'll see that many of them never panned out. But many did, and the psychological effect of making the bold claims, on both supporters and opponents, increases the chance of success re each particular claim.

that's possible and i did consider it. the idea that it was a bluff. but it's also possible that flynn is either a) really dumb and never should've been a general, or b) was lying for some reason, giving people false hope, either to get himself more attention, maybe he's going to write a book and thought saying trump will remain would get him attention and help him sell a book, i don't know. all i'm saying is you don't know for 100% certain it was a psyop/bluff. could've been, but who knows.

Same dynamic as here, Flynn was trying to keep things high energy. Same problem, it created unrealistic expectations.

6
russianbot4673 6 points ago +8 / -2

ya know, you're murking up what actually happened here.

for one thing, 'creating high energy' doesn't actually DO anything, not in a case like this. he 'created high energy' with the trump supporters themselves. one group of people who had NOTHING TO DO with the outcome, by that point. ZERO. we couldn't have changed ANYTHING. people going to the capitol on the 6th wasn't going to do ANYTHING, EVER.

it wasn't going to make democrats or RINOs suddenly realize the error of their ways and become good honest people all of a sudden, after years of corruption. so what exactly is the point of creating 'high energy' by lying to everyone and telling them that trump will remain in office?

you don't lie to people and promise them shit that won't happen to create 'high energy'. did you even think about this before typing it out? a little league baseball coach shouldn't tell his team 'i promise you WILL win this game, no matter what! there's no way you can possibly lose! NO WAY! 10/10 guarantee you're going to win win win!'

a good coach says 'go out there and play your best and we can do this!'

what flynn did was completely fucking wrong and retarded, and possibly intentionally deceptive. nobody knows and we probably never will, what his actual motive was.

1
Hardcouer 1 point ago +3 / -2

I agree with most of that. I think he was probably hoping to pressure Pence to throw the count in a stupid scheme to try to get SCOTUS to step in. Which appears to have been Trump's strategy. There's the motive; he was loyally implementing a doomed, insane plan.

It was retarded and people here should have realised we lost when the EC voted. With the EC for Biden and SCOTUS refusing to step in, we were screwed. I think people here are most unfair to blame Pence too; it was far too late and Trump's legal team along with the Kraken foolishness are to blame.

Also Trump and the swing state GOPs for not getting legislatures' election rules enforced, and not filling the electiom centres with secret camera and mike wearing election observers who refused to leave. We all knew there would be an attemp at fraud and that the media would cover for it, and weren't prepared.

It's not an automatic redirect, at least not for me. I had to click on a button labelled "Continue to Patriots.win" to get here. The fact that the domain owner is allowing this manual redirect page to be posted, suggests that he's not a totally evil scoundrel. More likely, he's been subjected to pressure that he's not equipped to resist (e.g. like General Flynn was, when he decided he had to plead "guilty" to charges that he knew perfectly well he wasn't guilty of), and just needs to formally disconnect himself from the forum.

fegeline 20 points ago +20 / -0

You may have heard different information about TTL (Time before DNS is refreshed), but here's how it works basically. DNS seems to be hosted on Cloudflare, I think that's established already.

Cloudflare will update DNS every 5 or 10 minute. But a DNS change doesn't happen immediately across the world. Your own PC/Phone has it's own DNS cache with it's own TTL. Your router may have it's own DNS cache, your ISP definitly has it's own DNS servers, which you are likely connected to if you haven't changed those.

So the updated record has to go through all these nodes until it reach you, unless you literally use Cloudflares DNS servers which are 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1

That means, any change made about now can happen at any time from now, or up to 24 hours from now, or longer if your settings says so.

6
PitStains 6 points ago +7 / -1

Cloudflare propagates very fast tho. I have changed DNS records many times on cloudflare and it propagates in less than 30 minutes. And yes, I'm using 1.1.1.1 as DNS, and it's still on the spash page. So this mod is either cooperating or the story doesn't add up.

The dns isn't redirecting. The vhost on the web server has changed from serving website content to hosting a static page that tells you about the new domain. Both the old and new domain could be running on the original T_D server.

And how is it that the mod would ONLY have access to the webhosting, and not the rest of the information. That doesn't logically make sense.

26
APXKnight 26 points ago +28 / -2

Larger sites don’t work like your consumer grade web hosting, where owning the domain == owning the hosting entirely. Bigger sites separate the domain, DNS and the infrastructure into separate bits. He only owned the domain registration, which allows him to change where the domain’s DNS is located, but doesn’t give access to the servers.

It's more robust and allows for tie-breakers when some don't vote. This way you can resolve the 2-2 vote but also the 1-1-1 vote without having them be able to become 2-2 votes.

BreakfastGun 24 points ago +24 / -0

I was just wondering about that myself. I suppose the "4" perhaps never votes unless a tie breaker is needed and otherwise the "24s" all do the voting on decision making. That is how the Senate was setup to operate.

It's because of the setup of the mod hierarchy from what I can tell, there are 4 tops and a backup

elodrian 14 points ago +14 / -0

One facet of game theory is the analysis of multi-player games and voting systems. The VP has as much voting power in the senate as every other senator does. Imagine the system if the VP voted on every vote; the outcome wouldn't be any different unless the vote would otherwise have been a tie. In all the situations where his vote would matter, he casts his vote. He only sits out the votes where he couldn't change the outcome anyway.

13
Zskills 13 points ago +13 / -0

Yeah but if one mod isn't as invested financially or otherwise as the other 4, then having an equal share wouldn't make sense.

I'm sure it's for a good reason

Trump2011 11 points ago +11 / -0

The only way it makes sense if if you have a group of 4 people and you're worried about 50-50 votes occurring and causing gridlock. So you each give up 1% to a 5th party who acts purely as a tiebreaker for 2-2 vote scenarios.

Scroon 5 points ago +5 / -0

The tie breaker can be thought of as a coin flip except there's at least some intelligence behind it.

Works great as long as everyone has the organization's best interests in mind. If external money and power get involved though you'll get situations where the tie breaker gets paid off or threatened by a dominant faction. Just like Roberts in our SCOTUS.

The parallels rights now between this site and the early nation are pretty amazing.

You can have the directors be shareholders.

However the big issue is that it's registered and the assets are easily accessible to a rogue court.

The only reason to incorporate or form an LLC is for liability reasons. Any business with multiple members is generally a partnership by default. This means that all partners are personally liable for the business.

Liability here is likely not their biggest concern because they have 230 liability protection from defamation. They maybe need to worry about privacy (except that they don't hold any personal data). The big issues they need to worry about are mob violence or activist legal actors, which liability protections are bad at protecting from. Even a limited liability organization can become personal liability to the owners under the right legal circumstances. It can come down to a judgement call on behalf of the judge.

This is not legal advice, but merely an explanation of the law.

Exactly what did the rogue mod want to censor? I saw another comment saying censoring “racism and violence”. Violence? Yes, of course and there hasn’t been any of that crap since after 1-6 (which looking back now it’s weird and suspect that so many comments were violent before 1-6...) but what racism?

I genuinely never see “racism”? At least enough to be censored? What is the rogue mod referring to when he says he favored more censorship? What type of censorship do/ are they pushing on you guys exactly?

The domain is the name you type into your browser to view the site. Think of it like the telephone number. The site is the person you're actually talking to. All that has happened is someone stole the telephone number so they've switched to a new one. Nothing of who you are talking to has changed.

PitStains -2 points ago +8 / -10

I'm using Cloudflare DNS, and flush'ed DNS, so I'm 100% up to date. Just trying to get to the bottom of this, because the story they are telling us isn't making sense. We need honesty and truth. If there's some backend drama, tell us the truth. If the site is now a honeypot, we need to figure that out.

13
floop_oclock 13 points ago +15 / -2

Cloudflare doesn't control the DNS, my dude. The DNS is a decentralized system. There is not anything cloudflare can do to speed up domain name propagation through the DNS. Cloudflare may have a couple DNS servers of their own, but even if so, they're at the mercy of the broader DNS and have no control over how quick/soon the most up to date domain registry reaches their DNS servers.

There is absolutely nothing anyone can tell you to ease your suspicion. Nothing. I could tell you I'm a computer expert (I actually am) and that the entire story so far makes sense to me. You wouldn't believe me; that's exactly what le FBI would say. I could tell you to wait 24 hours like I said before, and you will see the redirect happen. You wouldn't believe me; that would clearly just be more FBI trickery. IDK what to tell you dude. Weigh the risks, use a VPN or Tor, don't post anything here that could identify you. If that's not good enough for you, I guess you better leave.

Agree. If any of you guys ever got in major fights with your real siblings (esp brothers) then you all should realize this guy was not a Mitch McConnell or a Mitt Romney. He was a Steve Bannon. He loves DJT just like us, but he had absolutely no control over the site and he vehemently disagreed with all the people that had control. He only had a single avenue of retaliation -- the Domain name. When ppl are mad and they only have one response, they invariably take that action.

Save the anger for the real cucks, like McConnell and Romney. This is no time to splinter the team.
The current mods were smart and had a great contingency plan. Thank the almighty that we're still together. New beginning. Let's sally forth. In time, angry ex-mod will realize this is still the best site for info. He'll probably join again. Every patriot is part of our team.

Based on the interview he got doxxed or was worried about it and didn't like the direction the site was going. I suspect that he felt like he should have more say than he did since he owned the domain. It kinda sounds like Tim Pool's "disagreement" with his brother that owned subverse.com. It is typically for people that own the domain to forget about the hundreds of hours it takes to build a site and think paying $35 a year for a few years puts them in charge some how.

Nah. Never been fat. Been athletic since I was a youngin'. I'm just suggesting an FPH return because it serves two purposes-dank ass memes and motivation for overweight 'pedes to improve themselves. Obesity is the number one burden on our healthcare system and if you simply look around when you go into any store, we're a very fat society.

LiquidAsylum -25 points ago +10 / -35

You don't know the difference between to and too because you're a dumbass. Get over it.

I think pretending being overweight is healthy is stupid and people should strive to be a healthy weight.

FatPeopleHate was for losers who could only make themselves feel better by putting others down. As a Patriot I believe they do have a right to share their pathetic sad opinions, but still let's not pretend that people who actively fat shame and make it part of their identity are any less pathetic.

33
Barbs 33 points ago +34 / -1

You obviously never visited the subreddit when it existed.

It was never about hating fat people, it was about hating the fat acceptance movement, and ridiculing those who found justification for their obesity.

As the old joke goes, about 1% of people are obese due to medical conditions, and 99% of obese people think they fall into that 1%.

Fat people have a disgusting lack of self control...Sorry that hurts your feelings. Its nothing personal.

LiquidAsylum -5 points ago +3 / -8

Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. You love that you can see a fat person's lack of self control by looking at them and shame them for it. It makes you feel good obviously. As I said... pathetic. EVERYONE has a vice or weakness or flaw and many you can't see by looking at someone. That means even You have weakness.

Downvotes coming my way are because people are sick of woke culture, where the truth is hidden and people change reality to help their feelings. If someone is fat I will admit they are fat. I will never pretend they are more beautiful 100lbs+ overweight but again, a moral person wouldn't go out of their way to bash someone because of one of their flaws, we all have them.

Oh please, spare me the lecture. You're the one who started insulting people after I made one comment.

Funny.

It moved over... DNS re-naming doesn't change the backend servers or databases, it only changes the name you address the site by.

If any agency did assume control, the PGP encryption wouldn't match, and we'd know the site was compromised.

Assuming said agency doesn't have impressive undisclosed technical capabilities. Or the ability to extract the private key via coercion or other means.

It's probably more useful for basic security against script kiddies and similar types. It would probably take substantial creative technical measures to stall determined actors.

the domain name is completely disconnected from the backend - owning the domain basically means all he has access to is the ability to direct the domain name servers to whatever website he wants. Think of owning the domain as like owning the sign outside of a store but not having the keys to the store itself.

BluPhant 8 points ago +8 / -0

Mods feel free to correct me here but I think I understand his question and can give some insight.

The most important point is this: **Owning a domain name does not imply owning the content. ** The content MAY be owned/controlled by the same person/entity, but in this case apparently wasn't.
When you own a domain name, you can tell it where to go.
But in this case, the where it goes was always under control of "good" peeps.

As a simple example I could buy the domain "pencebetrayedthecountry.com" and have it redirect to a history channel documentary about circuses. I don't own the history channel content, I dont have any control over it, yet because I own the name, I can send traffic wherever I like.

Hope this makes sense.

FireannDireach 6 points ago +6 / -0

The No Agenda show does this all the time, they'll buy current event domain names and redirect it to the show domain, and listeners have been doing the same, for years. You could buy "BidenHasDementia.com" and redirect it to here.

So it was never NOT compromised. You know you guys can register a domain in mere seconds.. Why did "a rush to publish" cause you guys to make such a fatal, rookie error? Also, what was the decision, out of everyone, to have him host? Why not the head developer?

So what about him saying that the person who actually has access to everything is not American? And what about that spiel about the particular mod he can't trust? Why does he feel he can't trust that mod?

Also, why are you censoring this dumb fuck's name? This is exactly like the Eric Ciaramella situation. Actually it's even worse, because not only is his name out there in the media, but the falling out you guys had was specifically because you guys didn't want him out there doing media appearances. He CHOSE to be public against the wisdom of the rest of the mod team.

It's really retarded that you guys are censoring his name, and it's going to make a lot of people suspicious. Especially since you're saying that sharing his name is doxxing. That's not doxxing, by any definition of the word.

What caught my eye was the domain cert not screaming at us as being untrusted. You can look at it and it's registered for CloudFlare (also provides DDoS protection). Normally, certs aren't transferred from domain to domain.... but it looks like the "patriots.win" is just an alt-name... not the domain name for the cert. Either way, it's a legit cert. NOW... who that cert is registered to is something you don't know... but you didn't know that for td.win either.

Just my take, obviously u/Doggos can probably answer this better, but I believe if any password would've have been accepted, and you have to login again, it means it's probably a new/different database, your likes, comments, etc would all be gone (since they don't have the old DB to recreate that), essentially you'd be like a new user, that's what I gather, it would be that someone has recreated the UI and backend using the old domain but they'd have to be using a new DB which is why the password login entry would be required again (also this does not apply if you clear your cache, you might need to re-enter your PW if you do but again u/Doggos probably can answer that better too)

6
peterstrzoked 6 points ago +6 / -0

Posts/comments could be recreated by a diligent malicious actor who scraped the old version of the site.

Login session tokens would be impossible to recreate.

Basically a simplified version of the login process is this:

  • You go to a website and log in with username and password, so in my case peterstrzoked and bigmikescock9000
  • server checks my username and password against the user database, and assigns a session token to my record in the database, say abc123.
  • that token (abc123) is sent to my browser and saved as a cookie on my computer, and whenever I request a page on this site, it gets sent to the server with my page request.

Only the original database knows what my session cookie is, so if I tried to load a page on the fake site, it wouldn’t know which user I’m supposed to be and it would need me to log in again.

Clearing your cookies (not necessarily your cache) would log you out too, because the session cookie gets cleared.

That’s just a watered down explanation of the process, but that’s the gist of it. Without access to the old database there is no way for a new site to know what logged in user you are (other than if they were in a position to intercept traffic on the old site through some kind of mitm attack)

2
BlackFlag 2 points ago +3 / -1

peterstrzoked 6 points ago +6 / -0

Anything is possible; heck, all the mods could have been feds all along, which is why we should all be mindful of opsec as we share our currently legal (but probably not for long) opinions and dank memes.

But like another poster said about the warrant canary, while something suspicious could mean the site is compromised, the lack of something suspicious is not proof the site is not compromised.

This site is not a platform for criminal behavior/discussions anyway, so the main thing we have to worry about (for now at least) is shariablue pantifa asshats trying to dox us and get us fired/sent to re-education camps.

If anyone is concerned about being publicly identified as a user of this site, they should make sure they don’t post any identifiable information (opsec) and use a VPN.

Not bad advice anyway - and as long as you aren’t doing anything illegal even the VPN is probably not a requirement. No posting serial numbers on Sunday lol

To be fair, if the server was hijacked, all passwords would be hijacked as well and would not require a re-login. If this was in the planning early on, before mentions of the Patriot Party (as was stated in a previous post), this should have been announced early on too. Yalls most recent posts call the guy a backstabber, with no mention as to why yall think that other than to say you "don't know what he might do". That's a far stretch from a backstabber. Yall mentioned he went MIA, how do you know he's even still alive? And if the owner of this site was worried for their safety, what does that say about the rest of us posting here?

You're not sharing much personal information on this site anyway, just a username and password, then your IP which might not even reach the back-end servers due to Cloudflare front-end.

The most dangerous thing you could do would be to upload a picture of yourself, your house, your car, your friends... well you get the point. Or mentioning specific places and specific times, every detail place you in a smaller group until it's only you left, then an attacker could figure out who you are by the excluding method.

For reference, try to look me up. As you can expect my real name ain't Fegeline and Denmark isn't my real location.

I remain confused when people so eagerly doxx themselves online. In the old days you didn't even really want to reveal your country or time zone if you could help it.

Another rule is to never post a digital photo online, unless it's a holiday photo.

Photos will contain in the exif data the exact location of where it was taken. If you take a photo in your bedroom and you send it to someone, that someone will know exactly where you live.

You can turn off the location data in the settings of your camera. Do that but don't trust it. Most website where you upload photos will remove the location for you. But don't trust it.

Always take a screenshot of your photo and post that.

There are obsessed shitbags all over 4chan who set up IP traps and such just because they're shitty human beings who think it's funny to doxx people.

But how can you doxx someone with only the IP address? Assuming it's the real one, it only points at your internet provider and your general area.

What is it that they say about those who don't know history? Apparently that applies to "recent history" as well.

Spreading the risk over multiple providers is always a good idea. Especially DNS should be separated from the hosting company.

Cloudflare also has a top of the line CDN and DDoS protection, and because of their proxy service IP addresses can be hidden in both directions, i.e you can't see the origin IP, and the origin might not see your IP (typically not the case but it's possible).

This answer doesn't make sense. You need to control thedonaldDOTwin to make it point to patriots.win. if you don't control thedonaldDOTwin, how was that accomplished? This has nothing to do with dns

DatRndmDude 14 points ago +14 / -0

It makes perfect sense if you have the technical knowledge how DNS and web services work. There is a difference between a server and a domain.

A web server is a computer that runs the website and where all the data are stored. The server is accessed using it's IP address. Mod team has a full control over their web servers.

A **domain **is just an easy to remember textual label that is pointed to a server IP address. The translation is done by contacting a DNS server. Key thing to note is that there are multiple DNS servers all around the world. Your PC contacts the closest one to you (ideally). Any change of domains needs to be communicated between DNS servers. This is what they meant by propagation. So the guy changed where "thedonaldDOTwin" points to, but it is still not in effect everywhere because the change needs to propagate between the DNS servers.

See my other comment. As long as tdwin was pointed to mods servers, everything was fine. Since the mod went rogue though they needed the servers (not the dns record) to point to the new domain name before anything could happen.

Literally the only thing this mod had control of was a domain name that costs 20 bucks a year.

This right here is what people are missing. You can do a DNS redirect OR a redirect that is loaded on to the host computer. So

td.win says to go to IP x.x.x.x

computer at x.x.x.x says to go to patriots.win

people_who_annoy_you 1 point ago +1 / -0

It just seems odd to me to accuse a rogue mod of being rogue yet the "rogue" mod allowed the website administrators to put a page under the domain they control to create a page that redirects to the patriots.win URL. I think I'll just reach out directly to said "rogue" mod and get both sides of the story. This concerns our safety and all of our families.

The "rogue" mod could have set different nameservers other than those of epik at any point, and they could have done so after the redirect was put in place. I just want more transparency and explanation as to the security that concerns US, that is all.

1
REDMARAUDER 1 point ago +1 / -0

There's 2 ways you can redirect a website to a new domain. You can do it through domain servers or you can implement a code through the host. The DNS being changed wouldn't have brought up a redirection page. I've done both methods & it really does look like the mods w/ access to the host just set up the index to redirect to their new URL. Then the mod w/ access to the domain caught on.

1
people_who_annoy_you 1 point ago +1 / -0

Yeah my point was that if they set up a redirect on the server itself then the rogue mod would notice and change the DNS configuration...and it turns out that's exactly what happened. :( I miss the old domain.

fazaman 1 point ago +1 / -0

The servers didn't change. Its just that where the flashlight points for you depends on how long its been since someone told you to aim it.

I'm betting that you could do a DNS lookup for patriots.win then put the ip into your hosts file pointing thedonald.win to the same ip and see the redirect they left up. Its just a virtual host config.

1
people_who_annoy_you 1 point ago +1 / -0

Thank you for the thorough explanation! However I’m afraid I do already understand DNS as I’m a software engineer for my occupation. In order for the change to remain as it did, it would require the compliance of the domain owner. As we can see, that didn’t exactly end up working out part way through the day. Very sad. We lost many patriots in the domain transition.

If the rogue mod is indeed a rogue mod, don't you think they would have seen what is happening and reconfigured the DNS? I did multiple DNS queries and saw that it is exactly the same as it was previously. Things do not add up for me here and I want a full explanation, not some one line or one word comments in response to some questions from users who do not work IN the software and infosec industries.

EDIT: Reason being, I and everybody here have lives and livelihoods and families at possible risk. I previously trusted everything there is going on here and lately I have been growing more and more wary. Today with this stuff, I have been pushed past my line of silence regarding these matters. People are being arrested and fired from their occupations across the country for any affiliation with Trump and everything that has come from recent events.

EDIT2: I work in infosec and am a software engineer, and have for around a decade, so I know a thing or two about DNS and security...

I had to help several companies recovery their domains because an angry solo IT person left and didn't turn over any credentials. If the domain is registered to a business and you can turn over Tax IDs, water bills, etc they will give you control. Never tried for one registered to an individual. No idea what Epik's process is either. Only ever dealt with GoDaddy and NetworkSolutions.

People aren't really answering this question correctly so I will -- mods here still own the website, meaning they own the files. They created the redirect page that links here.

The rogue mod owned the domain meaning that once DNS clears anyone accessing TheDonald.win would go to wherever he points it to, possibly his own server.

I don't know why I'd have warned you all about it weeks later, if I am now an FBI Agent imposter.

Why couldn't we switch to the alternative sites (xyz/space/one)? Are those owned by the original mod?

.one is owned by the original mod.

As for why not thedonald.xyz or thedonald.space: two reasons

  1. we're building a .win brand
  2. the Win software only works with .win domains

Now of course we can fix point 2, but it requires resources that we don't currently have.

Summary of the situation as I understand it (from an absolute nobody, but I did figure out the true meaning of the “FBI Honey Pot” warning post while everyone was talking about Glowies then started researching/paying more attention)

  • Rouge Mod registered the domain

  • Jan 6 is when the domain stand off bubbles over.

  • Rouge Mod gets identified by media (somehow). Panics (tbh who wouldn’t) quits the team and says “I’ll do an interview because otherwise they’ll blame me and I’ll become a target from feds and whoever else and I was the one who was saying we should be more restrictive”. Rest of mod teams says “no, don’t do it, did you not just watch the media spin and lie for the last 4 years?!”

  • Does it anyway. Gets basically the same outcome that could have been predicted. Duh. But now has thrown the rest of the mod team under the bus. But what can you expect from a Cruz 2016 guy who only started supporting Trump after he won (rouge mods words)

  • Rouge Mod realises he’s got no leverage to force the other mods to do anything. The only thing he’s got is the domain, no access to the servers or anything.

  • Rogue mod refuses to transfer the domain even after leaving because Doggos is pretty much the sole guy keeping this running and he’s foreign and Rogue Mod thinks that’s too big of a risk. Rogue mod is upset because Doggos has a tight grip on controlling the servers and code (after having basically built the whole thing himself)

  • Rouge Mod power trips. Holds onto the domain to “do the right thing” and protect against Doggos having full control of the whole thing. Picks successful business owner guy in the mod team he trusts and declares “he will only transfer it to this guy”. He declines supposedly because he doesn’t want the drama and exposure (I would guess his business is paying for a few of the bills around here but could be wrong)

  • Rouge Mod does hour long long form interview where he gets really guarded when someone asks and the host agrees he’s doing himself a disservice by saying he wants to leave and have nothing to do with thedonald but also refusing to give up the domain, something doesn’t add up.

  • Rouge Mod makes the claim that he will transfer the domain if Doggos shares the code with the rest of the mod team. I am not sure if this happened or not.

  • Win team gets increasingly worried about some guy who left the team and did an interview to save his own ass having sole control of the domain and what would happen if he sold it to someone or tried to build his own platform or whatever. Basically how much can you trust someone who’s no longer in the team having the ability to just turn it off in one go.

  • Instead of being at risk or unsure, Win team renames to patriots.win. (No more rankings etc :( )

  • Rouge mod shits the bed because his leverage is gone and turns the site off to prevent them from manoeuvring power out of his hands

It’s not written in php.

The safer assumption is to assume the whole internet is a honeypot.

Majority of activity here is completely public anyway so your main risk is more some no life ANTIFA butt boy with no prospects finding and doxxing you (most ANTIFA are hated by even their own “friends” lol)

The foreigner/non-foreigner thing doesn’t bother me too much because actions speak louder than words and Doggos actions have shown him more far more loyal than most and totally committed to giving The Donald an unapologetic home to thrive

Which is much more than most and especially more than any mod who used a domain name for leverage after quitting, announced they want nothing to do with it anymore, subtly threw the remaining mod team under the bus and all the while refusing to transfer the domain ( for something they no longer wish to be involved in) only to disconnect the domain after the remaining mods decide to rebrand to Patriots. Potentially leaving thousands unaware of what happened to the only remaining pro-Trump place on the internet.

don't really care if it's written in php, but how do you know it's not?

Because I've written code thats been deployed to Win before and it was not in PHP.

although I'm pretty sure the physical servers I run from my home are not.

Yeah, your physical home servers sure, but the entire internet doesn't run off your home server. You have to connect to other servers which requires a leap of faith that they're not honey pots. Easier to just assume it's tracked/traced/logged/spied on by default

And even then pretty sure wikileaks/snowden showed that pretty much all tech has backdoors built into the hardware level

However, if you are more worried about the risk of some "Antifa butt boy" finding and doxxing you than the FBI or CIA then you're not very intelligent.

Avoiding being doxxed is just smart. Doing what you can to minimise that risk is the intelligent thing to do

For most of the people here, it would be relatively easy for an investigator to identify them based on information only available to the mysterious tech mod.

Possibly. But going off what the mods have reported, they don't store raw IP addresses (they're hashed) and you can sign up without an email. Pretty close to an A rating in terms of not collecting information
