-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hello. I would like to address some claims made by a honestly quite persistent
poster which is claiming that I am running a data-mining operation on
Julay.world. I would like to start off by saying that if you are
using your bare IP on the Internet, you are already doing something wrong. You
shouldn't be trusting anyone with your bare IP in the first place. With that
out of the way, let me address some of the claims made by this poster.
>The alt chan federation thread that is stickied is most likely a ploy in order
>to make the users believe that Robi is looking after them.
The ACF thread was made back in mid-September in collaboration with another
Julay admin after me and that admin were invited to a private Discord server
where the users (themselves owners of other imageboards) planned ways to shill
their imageboards on more popular websites like 4chan and Reddit. Julay was
never involved with any shilling operation and the only reason that we were
there in the first place was to log these conversations and expose them.
>Robi and the tranny were connected in some sort of operation to datamine the user.
The Alphachan owner is claimed to be Rodent who was previously involved with
freech.net (along with nanotech). The archive link that is floating around
claims that Rodent was in a data-mining collaboration with me and that he has
collected enough data. alphachan.net now redirects to julay.world. To address
this, I would like to ask you a question: If I told you that I was secretly
Michael Jackson, would you believe me?
I had never heard of bernd.group before the spammer mentioned it. It seems to
be a continuation of Kohlchan after it was shut down with a terrible web3.0 UI
, though I don't know whether the original Kohlchan owners are involved with
it. I am not aware of any drama related to bernd.group, so I don't know what
the spammer is talking about when he says "He is scared shitless of bernd.group."
>robi is deleting posts he doesn't like
The reason this spammer's posts keep getting deleted is because, well, he is
spamming. The reason Julay (currently) has mandatory captchas is because this
spammer has attempted twice to spam multiple boards with over 200 IP addresses,
quickly generating 2000 posts within a few minutes.
If you would like to know more about Dolphinspammer, he's basically a
schizophrenic spammer who has been trying to take anon.cafe/r9k/ offline for
some time now, because he sperged out on there and then tried to get it
deleted. He is currently mad at /cow/ because there is a thread on him there,
and that is why he has Julay.world on his sights.
>Robi is doing this to take complete control over imageboards
I and multiple other admins of julay.world have asked anons to create their own
imageboards so they can be added to the webring. Centralization is the reason
8chan going down completely killed many boards. I urge larger boards to create
their own websites all the time. If you have created your own imageboard, all
you have to do is talk to me on IRC and I can add you to the webring.
>webring is completely controlled by Robi
The webring is a decentralized system. You choose what other compatible boards
to add or block. The source code is completely Free and open, and is available
. The only reason that
there is currently a single webring is because nobody has put in effort to
create another. If other imageboard owners would like to create a second
webring, they can do it at will.
>Julay is behind cloudflare
That is unfortunately at least half-true, but let me explain. The hosting that
julay.world is using (Frantech) uses Cloudflare Magic Transit. You can find a
link explaining it here: https://www.cloudflare.com/magic-transit/
Cloudflare Magic Transit is different from the regular Cloudflare product in
that it is only a transit, and it doesn't do MITM. It only prevents actual
network-level attacks like UDP floods and actual DDOS. Julay.world uses a TLS
certificate that has never been shared with Cloudflare, and forces TLS on all
requests, therefore unless Cloudflare has successfully broken TLS encryption,
the only thing they can see is where the data is coming from (your IP) and
where the data is going (Julay). If you are worried about that, I must refer
you to my statement above:
Never bareback the Internet.
I probably should've made a public announcement about this when I learned of
it, because when we bought the julay.world server back in December, the DDOS
protection page on BuyVM listed Voxility as its DDOS protection provider. That
had apparently changed before we bought the server and the page wasn't updated.
>julay can't be trusted
You cannot trust any website online. Julay's current policy is to never keep
nginx logs (which would contain IP addresses), and to keep IP addresses in
LynxChan for 7 days after which they're deleted. The storage of IP addresses is
required for LynxChan because otherwise moderation tools would stop
working. Again, never bareback the Internet.
I would like to make a statement similar to the one on cock.li's frontpage:
It's 100% possible for me to see your IP addresses as long as LynxChan has not
pruned them, so you have to take my word that I'm not using them for nefarious
purposes. If you want to keep anonymous, use a VPN or Tor. If you can't afford
or use those, post at your own risk. I will never sell or process any user
data, but that doesn't mean you should be fully putting your trust on
julay.world (or any website for that matter).
If you have other things for me to address, please let me know.
Also, I would just like to point out a strategy that the spammer's been using:
>robi is doing X bad thing! *bunch of archive links*
<can you provide actual evidence for this?
>robi needs to prove he doesn't do X!
I cannot prove something that I haven't done, and any anon with at least 2
brain cells see through your play.
