Is there an easy way to speak with 4chan staff? What if I have something I want to contribute to 4chan that I don't think will get seen on /qa/?

Look at /news/ from 1 month ago :

If you browse /news/ at all you know what I said wasn't a lie. While of course there are exceptions by and large people post the news article photo.

I feel for you OP, try reporting any of the off topic drama you see, might help

>Overt gaslighting
>Being in full damage control over current events
Fun fact, Trump just got implicated in a felony with two of the parties involved in the crime pointing the finger at him. Just because the news hurts your side, doesn't mean you can say 'blog and tabloids' and declare it's invalid and should be banned.

Forgive me, but is posting & using 4chan a simple case of 'people are different than you & they're going to think differently & have different opinions than you?' By that I mean, there seem to be almost like syndicates of people (almost like this is just a giant shitposting, psyop, contrarian circle jerk) that piggyback the most antagonistic, against the grain viewpoint on any given thing.

In /tv/ for instance, there are large swaths of people (or at least were) that would contend that Alien 3 is the best Alien film in the entire franchise, mind you it's an old popcorn flick series, so why did it generate so many threads--but that's beside the point. But the same idea persists in /fa/, which is to say, if you aren't wearing mall goth ninja boutique artisanal clothing imported from Sweden in XXS sizes & you're not listening to the Death Grips in /mu/, then you're a literal pleb, while of course pounding /ck/ approved IPAs and reading a first edition Gravity's Rainbow, whatever board culture enforced normative value it might be & I could go on with the projection, but you get the idea. Why is that? Suspend whatever resistance & disbelief you have, why is it that some boards circlejerk & echochamber something seemingly arbitrary as par excellence. Is it a population sample thing? Is everyone really 13? Or like an old rivethead, goth burnout?

I suppose what I struggle with is that a lot of people on 4chan embrace the most edgelordian, outsider, art brut approach to life, if anyone dare disagrees with whatever it might be (even it's something completely subjective, open to interpretation, not at all black & white, a cultural variance etc.) then that individual is a literal heretic. I'm not sure if it's groupthink, or the 'hivemind', but it's obnoxious. Also, some boards are just that terrible. I ran across a thread on theology in /pol/ that was unsurprisingly, shockingly bad--bad even for this website. That someone could be so willfully wrong saddened me.

I found an undocumented, internally-used application development framework (which contains a GUI toolkit) that basically satisfies my needs. If I narrow the choice down to using this one or developing one by myself, which would be a better choice?


Long version:

When I was inspecting the code for a painting program (one-man project) I found that the developer wrote a whole application development framework that was only internally used by the program and was statically linked to the program when compiled. The painting program was developed using functions from this framework only.

The framework was written in about 60,000 lines of C code and seemed to have a platform/backend independent design, and was supplied with Linux and Xlib compatibility code. It handled disk IO, GUI toolkit, configuration file, character encoding and string, and even GIF decoding all by itself so it had no dependencies other than X, JPEG and PNG libraries. Compiled program started almost instantly and had a hard-coded but fairly modern look and feel. It was also BSD-licensed and constituted less than 500KB in final binary size.

Since GTK is becoming more and more Linux- and tablet-(?) centric, I don't want to deal with C++, and other GUI toolkits all look like programs from 90s, I'm considering to roll out my own with "flat" and "square" look and feel that should be easy to implement (actually just autism that I don't want GTK/Qt in my setup). This framework seems appealing to me but it has no documentation other than concise comments in code used to remind the developer of the use of each function.

And where did you get the idea that it has to be one or the other? Because you couldn't possibly be more wrong.

my upstairs neighbor is a single mom with 3 children, all living in a small NYC apartment. the walls are thin.
the daughter is about 12 years old and nightly screams bloody murder at the mom. right now she's screaming "LEAVE ME ALONE", among other things, and has been doing so for half an hour.

I don't think she's being abused, but the situation doesn't seem normal. The mom has mentioned before that the child is seeing a therapist and apologizes over text occasionally. Sometimes I've thought about alerting social services.

wat do /qa/ ?
>>
Contacting social services is probably doing the family no favors if there's nothing bad actually going on. You should only do something like that if you have solid evidence, although I agree that the kid screaming at the mother is pretty abnormal.
