who makes these fake numbers up? i've been coding for my employment for 7 years, 5 companies [never fired], and i only make $45,000/yr before taxes.

i think this is simply an advertisement. they tell zoomers they will make 6 figures starting if they know how to code, but actually it just oversaturates the market and drives down the cost of labor for coding.

Unironically, get out of defense and get into the real private sector. Like any of the big names (Facebook Amazon Microsoft) or smaller name outfits (Crowdstrike, Square, Airbnb, Yelp, IBM, etc…) Defence contracts pay devs pennies so that the big guy at the top with all the pork barrel connections can afford his $20 million mansion in Arlington VA. The same job (slinging JS code) at a typical private sector company would pay 2x at least.

No presentations, two mandatory meetings over Zoom for giving updates every week, cameras off. I get most of my work through Jira tickets and I tell my manager that I am happy to push through already-defined work, have no desire to drive big projects or talk to people.

Basically my throughput in tickets is 3x higher than any of the other devs on my team, through sheer autism so they have no choice to keep me around, or else they hire three guys and spend 200k extra in the overhead (have to pay for 3 employees benefits rather than one, etc).

Americunt here, I want to eventually move out of the US in search of a better standard of living.
American cost of living is insane and the social benefits don't back it up. Horrible public transit, healthcare system is non-existent, education is expensive, and everything meant to help people in my situation is designed to be way more complicated than it has to be.
If I broke my leg today, I would be instantly fucked. I want to move somewhere where I'm not afraid of going to a doctor because of bills.

Has anybody else (regardless of where you live) ever had the same thoughts? Did you do it? Where did you move from-to? What did you learn and do you have any advice?

Thanks everyone.

What's wrong with living in rural areas? I moved from MA to NH and regret nothing. No income tax, a surprising amount of IT work in Manchester, 80 mph speed limits cuz no one lives here, I can buy almost any gun I want, daily visits from Mr. Coyote and Mr. Squirrel, trees as far as the eye can see, and space. Lots and lots of space. And darkies are rare here, but not as rare as in Maine. The only thing I miss is the 1 Gbps internet where I used to live. I was lucky to get 200 Mbps up here.

I have been to multiple that had better internet and water. Most things are above the real shit third world countries but not comparable to first world. Trains are always late or cancelled, phone coverage terrible, traffic on roads unbearable, rent and other costs of living are absurdly expensive, houses are built to terrible standards with no insulation so it's freezing in winter and deadly in summer unless you pay thousands on electricity, terrible insects and unbearable temperatures. Havent even mentioned that it is a police state where people and the law has no regard for human dignity or privacy. Australia is a nightmare scam country.

What measures would a sustainably moderatable imageboard use? Hundreds of messages or more a day with no posting filters becomes tedious for a mid-sized team to proactively monitor. In that case, how can an imageboard sustainably filter out bad posters?

- Word filters? People always find a way around them.
- Algebra or advanced math problem captchas? Selects for impressive autismo, but filters out good verbal posters with limited math skills.
- Graduating ban levels, with warnings or 3 day bans for light offenses like spam or advertising, or 6 month bans for CP, or whatever lengths are appropriate, should be considered.

What other options would be workable?

It is just a way for mods to pick on someone in particular who isn't breaking rules.

Ether go full namefag, have post id per a thread, or don't have namefagging at all
If you open the door to subjective enforcement of non-rules it will be exclusively abused.

Algebra or other difficult filtering captchas for anons flagged as low quality.

 No.287124

Truly low effort regulars who aren't bad enough for a ban should be post rate limited by IP, or have the IP be given a more permanently identifiable tag to make them more filterable.

Good generals and threads should be given special status and protected from crawl, slide, and low quality parasitic bleeding. Maybe strong quality accounts should be able to have them voted into status with a target number by other anons. This would be better than jannies constantly attending. This status should be a tier below mod pinned posts.

 No.291229

Additionally, the max number of threads per day per IP should be tied to PPH. Higher PPH, higher thread max. Very high PPH allows high threads per hour.

This prevents malicious slide spam.

I feel like an oddity. I never used imageboards in my younger years. Never ventured into the cancerous parts of the internet. I spent all my time on the moderated message boards and gaming IRC networks.

There was one network of sites and chatrooms which has been defunct for longer than most zoomers have been alive. There were so many thousands of users across it. I spent my youth jumping around random public servers fucking around on different games with people who by now are all old as well. It's all been wiped from history after the financial backing fell out. I never seen the company or the communities mentioned in the years since. Perhaps it wasn't as big as I remember.

Wasn't until I got older myself that I figured I guess I am what I am. There's no denying it anymore. I am an internet dweller. So I started to venture into the cancerous parts of the internet to see what was really going on there.

I believed an illusion that I was going to become my true self eventually. I thought the state of being a loser was temporary of adolescence. That's when the angst kicked in. The internet cancer took hold for a while. Until I started to accept that I wasn't ever going to be "normal" to begin with and I didn't need to be all angsty about it either.

The kids especially are always looking for some wisdom aren't they. There's nothing profound really. People are all children at heart as is always mentioned in these types of threads. Perhaps a one constant… Whatever you're super sure of today. Whatever super secret you're so sure you've discovered that nobody else can see. That won't always be. You haven't got it figured out. Nobody does.

My sex drive seems to have completely disappeared. I wonder if I have a brain tumor or something. This never happened to me except when deeply depressed to the point of being almost catatonic. I'm less depressed than usual if you go by the metric of the past 10 years. Maybe my brain just realized it hasn't seen or interacted with a real succubus in 10 years so it decided sex drive was unnecessary.

But you do have desires for 2D. And I don't get that either and honestly I don't want to. There was a time in my life when I tried to have a waifu but I found the whole thing stupid and so I dropped it. My problem isn't with 3D people only, it is with the idea of romance itself and bonding to others. It is a destruction of privacy and the self. I want to preserve my self and my ego above all others, I can't let it mix with 2D concepts or 3D actual humans.

Mods should do something about the leaking, I don't them to ruin every single thread. I am sure now someone linked this place to some r9k variation and now the tourists are all over here.

You are getting older. That's all. Your sex drive is still there but sleeping, after a couple of weeks you will have it back, even if only to a small extent.

I have a very dark confession to make. I've lost my anal virginity to a young female nurse when she injected a huge enema into my ass because I had been constipated for weeks. It was a huge metal tube, longer than the average dildo, I was basically raped by the medical mafia. I haven't been the same since, not only did they anally raped me, but the nurse saw my penis, yes a succubus saw me naked and penetrated my ass with a metal tube. They've stole my anal virginity, they've stole my powers, I'm virtually gay now.>>290709
