2018-10-04: Search server active for recent posts, rebuilding for older posts. DesuArchive & RBT restored after host's storage had a 2nd SAN hiccup on 9/24. No damage, but posts need import from the contingency scraper. Many thanks to our new tetrarchy of sysadmins who worked to fix this complex service after the loss of the original admin. More info later. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.
Ghostposting is under extreme vetting by new moderators to mitigate spam. Crackspamming or responding to any is a bannable offense.

Why did they get BTFO'ed in North America? I mean, they were able to build a few functioning little towns/villages from Newfoundland to Nova Scotia, but for whatever reason they got BTFO'ed. Why?

Why is it that, when it comes to colonization such as the Belgian Congo case, we're always thought about greatly exaggerated or even made up scenarios? Surely if they wanted to show how "evil" the Europeans were, they'd have something to show for it, right?

Were the Huns who attacked Europe the Xiongnu who were driven west by the Chinese Han dynasty? Some western historians thought they were.
