2018-12-13: Provider mandated maintenance on the search server will begin 2018-12-14 UTC-0 09:30-10:30, and may require the search to be powered off from 03:00-15:00.
Year-end planned maintenance on the full image server to replace degraded parity drive is also suggested by the Tetrarchy for 12-28 to 1-06, TBA. 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.

Should animals have rights?

Should animals have rights?
So, what makes animals so special anyway? Like I can understand the need for human rights since we are humans and we need to treat each other ethically for our societies to function, but why extend this to animals? Is it literally just people feeling sorry for a bunch of miserable chickens born with no purpose other than to die and become part of a sandwich? Because that makes zero sense to me because no one intelligent enough to think that is a chicken so it can't be actual chickens doing this. So why sympathize with chickens? I don't get it? What makes chickens worthy?
