The Incident

In a recent /cyb/ /sec/ thread one anon asked about the incident. This is controversial, should we add a page on the topic? Below some notes while I try to figure out what happened, searching Desuarchive.

Notes

Desuarchive shows the /cyb/ generals ran from 2014 until the incident in 2021. The first post is dated 2014-03-05 and refers to Cyberpunk which started 2014-02-05. The first Cyberpunk general was dated 2013-01-21.

Timeline

  • range banning /sec/ posters was mentioned.
  • an irrecoverable purge was mentioned 2021-08-17, the incident must have taken place earlier.
  • a dispute if there was a purge vs. /cyb/ never existed 2021-07-26
    • "Cyb died because there wasn't anything cyb related to talk about, other than posting pictures why does it need a general? It's literally /fa/"
  • normal thread reaching 313 posts dated 2021-07-21; the next expired after 35 posts.

2021-12-18 /cyb/ + /sec/: Cyberpunk and Cybersecurity General 65 / 06 / 33 OP tries frog posting, does not improve the discussion.
2021-12-16 /cyb/ + /sec/: Cyberpunk and Cybersecurity General 99 / 23 / 43 Now people complaining about this not being about certs.
2021-12-14 /cyb/ + /sec/: Cyberpunk and Cybersecurity General 92 / 18 / 48 Mostly about certs.
2021-12-07 /cyb/ + /sec/: Cyberpunk and Cybersecurity General 95 / 14 / 47 Familiar and branded OP image used, OP insists "This isn't your jobs thread or cert thread, it's a group therapy session." This tag line continues the next few threads
2021-12-03 /cyb/ + /sec/: Cyberpunk and Cybersecurity General 36 / 03 / 19 Still the same OP text. Again with Discord.
2021-11-30 /cyb/ + /sec/: Cyberpunk and Cybersecurity General 198 / 15 / 79 Anons note pastes are stale but old FAQs are not linked to. Also with Discord link.
2021-11-26 /cyb/ + /sec/: Cyberpunk and Cybersecurity General 22 / 05 / 15 OP admitted "Dead general edition" and last poster checked out thread with "die out".
2021-11-25 /cyb/ + /sec/: Cyberpunk and Cybersecurity General 12 / 03 / 08 OP exclaimed "There's finally a discord server edition" and things went off the rails.
2021-11-24 /cyb/ + /sec/: Cyberpunk and Cybersecurity General 1 / 1 / 1 Second post same day, just fell off page 10.
2021-11-23 /cyb/ + /sec/: Cyberpunk and Cybersecurity General 156 / 21 / 53 Meixiu made an entrance, ended up deeming the thread retarded. Also lots of cert posting.
2021-11-10 /cyb/ + /sec/: Cyberpunk and Cybersecurity General 320 / 30 / 110 Op states "This isn't your jobs thread or cert thread, it's a group therapy session." There are 44 posts on certs and 40 on jobs, at least the thread lasted beyond 310.
2021-11-09 /cyb/ + /sec/: Cyberpunk and Cybersecurity General 74 / 11 / 42 Op states "This isn't your jobs thread or cert thread, it's a group therapy session." There are 2 posts on certs and 2 on jobs, a slight improvement.
2021-11-08 /cyb/ + /sec/: Cyberpunk and Cybersecurity General 36 / 10 / 16 Op states "This isn't your jobs thread or cert thread, it's a group therapy session." There are 5 posts on certs and 14 on jobs.
2021-11-07 /cyb/ + /sec/: Cyberpunk and Cybersecurity General 138 / 19 / 43 Op states "This isn't your jobs thread or cert thread, it's a group therapy session." There are 19 posts on certs and 29 on jobs. Some news postings are made, not in old format.
2021-11-03 /cyb/ + /sec/: Cyberpunk and Cybersecurity General: 320 / 62 / 94 The first to go past 310 for months. Abbreviated OP text. Many happy to see the general back, a few were quite the opposite.
2021-10-20 /cyb/ + /sec/ - Cybersecuity General 61 / 13 / 30 Lain mentioned but they deleted /cyb/, keeping /sec/; /Ω/ or /Δ/ has some /cyb/ discussion
2021-10-04 /cyb/ + /sec/ - Cybersecuity General 20 / 01 / 16 Brief, even by recent standards
2021-10-02 /cyb/ + /sec/ - Cybersecuity General 73 / 12 / 30 Started same day as previous general. Suggesting /sec/ turned on /cyb/ and spammed people away, via /fa/, general declared mostly dead
2021-10-02 /cyb/ + /sec/ - Cybersecuity General 05 / 03 / 11 Died quickly: "This thread was dead on arrival. We have 13 posts of which 4 are bumps."
2021-10-01 /cyb/ + /sec/ - Cybersecuity General 11 / 03 / 10 Died quickly: "So is the general officially back?" And thread dies within 6 hours.
2021-09-20 /cyb/ + /sec/ - Cybersecuity General 151 / 18 / 75 New OP text, close to that of 2021-08-22, mostly sec, one anon declares /cyb/ FAQ jibberish, is rewriting for posting on Neocities. The incident is explained as /sec/ forcing out /cyb. Symb0l makes an appearance.
2021-09-13 /cyb/ + /sec/ - Cybersecuity General 68 / 06 / 22 Uses old format OP text. The Mega archive was taken down.
2021-09-07 /cyb/ + /sec/ - Cybersecuity General 13 / 02 / 11 Lasted about an hour. one anon mentions "we all moved bro no need to make more threads here", another that "sec posters got range banned for some reason"
2021-09-07 what happened to /cyb/ threads? 11 / 01 / 08 Lasted nearly 3 hours. Op asked but got no answers.
2021-08-22 /cyb/er/sec/ 82 / 09 / 39 New OP text. One anon noted that "Sadly this is another /sec/ threadlet dressed up with some stolen /cyb/ feathers. It will not last," and was right.
2021-08-16 /cyb/ + /sec/ 33 / 06 / 27 Old OP text. Mostly discussions on what OP text should be. A purge is mentioned
2021-08-10 /cyb//sec/ 03 / 01 / 03 One of the shortest ever, lasted less than 2 hours
2021-08-02 Does Anyone Have the /cyb/ Wall of Text? 12 / 06 / 09 Lasted just over 2 hours but OP got a reply.
2021-07-26 cyb/+/sec/ (7) - The Cyberpunk and Cybersecurity general 99 / 16 / 44 New OP text. Strong disagreement about past traffic with discussion of purge vs. "flop". Even the /sec/ FAQ has not seen a single update since that "happening". First admission that there was an attack in that "jannies kept deleting them".
2021-07-24 cyb/+/sec/ (6) - The Cyberpunk and Cybersecurity general 31 / 05 / 17 New OP text, but not the latest 1.1 and latest about 7 hours.
2021-07-21 /cyb/+/sec/ (5) - The Cyberpunk and Cybersecurity general 313 / 71 / 82 Old OP text, new versions 1.0 and 1.1 was suggested. Some claim "we are on lainchan".
2021-07-17 /cyb/+/sec/ #4 (Revival) - The Cyberpunk and Cybersecurity general 320 / 57 / 86 Mention of people range banned 3 - 6 months, plus "the huge purge a month or so ago".
2021-07-15 /cyb/+/sec/ #3 (Revival) - The Cyberpunk and Cybersecurity general 315 / 69 / 76 A "Cyberpunk has nothing to do with cybersecurity"-anon is early. Catbox 1.2 and 1.2.1 text files released.
2021-07-13 Cyb + Sec 316 / 59 / 85 First Catbox collection of text files released followed by version 1.1. Some Solarpunk contents too.
2021-07-09 Cyb + Sec The Thread Revival 318 / 58 / 99 That start of a series of attempts to revive the general. A frogposter is late in claiming "Cyberpunk has nothing to do with cybersecurity". People are surprised the thread has not been killed. Expectations were generally low.
2021-06-19 //CYB-SEC-GEN (CYB-SG)\\ 91 / 9 / 47 Op noted "Re-starting this General assuming the jannies haven't made it gone permanently. Apparently all of the tripfags and regulars got banned for some reason.

Disclaimer: If the jannies be mad and hatin', then this general is satirical in nature and really just a lulzy LARP". Others say people moved to Lainchan. Now gone regulars are listed. One anon keeps insisting none of this ever happened.

2021-06-18 //CYB-SEC-GEN (CYB-SG)\\ 50 / 5 / 20 Very brief OP text. Op note: "Re-starting this General assuming the jannies haven't made it gone permanently. Apparently all of the tripfags and regulars got banned for some reason."

Summary

Graph of posts, posters and files throughout 2021

The incident appears to have happened in the middle on February 2021. People have strong opinions that there was a purge vs. it never even existed. Whatever happened, the general went from 300+ posts in a few days to expiring after less than 100 posts. Regulars and archives disappeared around the same time.

In more detail, the incident must have happened around 2021-02-24, as this was the last post in a series with mostly over 300 posts and usually over 100 posters per thread. Subsequently the number of posts was halved and the number of posters declined to about a third. Even the "revival" attempt in July 2021 was not able to bring in more than 100 posters. There was a singular exception in a thread started 2021-03-15, the last where the specially formatted news postings were seen, after that threads were mostly shorter and with fewer posters.

It would seem there was not one single purge but several. The main at the end of February, and then stragglers purged in the middle of March. This seems confirmed by two anons surfacing at the end of March, stating they were banned on fabricated grounds. Recently one anon wrote "I used to make a fair amount of the cyb sec threads but the jannies banned me for multiple months last summer so I stopped making them". Clearly this was an extended campaign to end this general. One year later, /cyb/ has still not recovered.
