Hello, frens! It's time for another issue of the fable Kohlzine. This one, like we all expected, has a very distinct apocalyptic and viral flavour.
We have uncovered another sura from the depths of a Mossad secret base on Kiev, Bernds wonder how would affect this epidemic to various strata of out society, typical shitposts and confessions and a review of a (let's hope not) prophetic game in these end-times times.

For any doubts or if you want to see the previous issues go to https://kohlzine.neocities.org/
You can also fine information on the last page of this edition.
We hope you have fun with it.

You may enjoy it, Ernsts. Maybe even contribute one day? We aim at having contributors from all over the KC diaspora.

I think this may actually be the most coherent and kc-tier of all issues. It's a great, but very anxiety ridden, read. I think it's the first time I've read cover to cover, and not just read articles now and again and in no order.
The Sura is actually really well placed. There's a mystical, really ominous sense to what is going on, a good joke, but it feels like something written a hundred years from now by a religious group seieing Corona as their "Fall From Grace", a reflection of what happened.
It seeps into the two quarantine diary entries immediatly after, which feel again like some historical evidence that's been unearthed by historians looking at a past catastrophe. "Here's a reflection on how the pandemic changed daily living, seen through the eyes of two already isolated people. "Quarantine Column" in particular reads like something that a future historian will mull over.
The two articles following that, which look on the viruses impact on society, have a common thread of seeing the virus as both the consequence and destruction of current society. I like how there are common references (borders, in particular) but different views overall. "The paradigm is now being put to the test and it's failing" is a very apt way of putting it that unites both articles. They are also written very clinically, and if it wasn't for the fact that I wrote the Immunopolitics article, I would have said that the two authors decided to co-ordinate writing. The clinicalness is really rather unenrving, especially immediately two diary entries that are personal, immediate reflections. If it wasn't for the endings, you could almost seem them as two future historians analyzing the virus and how badly our society managed. The endings themselves are really troubling too, with an almost apathetic, pessimistic view on how things are going, an almost bleak stare into the abyss. Troubling.
"A Look Back at the Federal Collapse" is great, and well positioned. It feels like a real journal entry from the future, and it doesn't seem farfetched at all with the author's predictions. Again, this is fantastic editing, because putting this immediately after the two articles above, which follow from quite down to earth, "real" present day journal entries. It feels like the catastrophe analyzed by the above has come to fruition, and now this is how life is. Again, it's really bleak.

The five articles up to this point feel like some joined narrative, which is very impressive. It's something that a future historian, living in the chaotic world after 2020, might put together to explain how things happened.
This alone makes this issue great. But everything after is almost poignant after that, almost like little cuttings that future historian might keep on his desk, somewhere in his or her bunker, as the personal reminders of what happened. "A Miracle of Modern Science" is a really brave thing to write about, even anonymously. It's both a reminder of the genius of what modern science has given us (and how quickly such things might end up going away...), but also a personal account of individual embrassment at your imperfection, that was shared only at a time when such embarassments are being seen for what they are--insignficant to you as a person.
The next three articles are not only entertaining and informative, but again, they feel like little things that would exist in an archive of the event many years in the future. People sharing how to survive, how to stay sane, how to avoid getting diseased. Little information packets provided by people who are increasingly relying on themselves and communities, rather than government (going back to the first five entires, almost perfectly in fact).
The review of World of Horror is great in itself, a good review, but I like how it ties with things. Here's a game where you're living in a world gradually descending into chaos, bodyhorror, infection and so on. It's almost a meta article, an in depth look at the technical aspects of a game that is sort of mirroring siutation we're in now, almost a commentary on the "gameplay aspects" of society under the dread of the virus.
Honestly, best issue yet. Great articles, great editing. Reading these articles in order was an experience in itself.

EC is about 90%+ serious discussion. Also talking about your day and how you panicked and stole panties isn't an actual shitpost. That, however, is quite clearly a shitpost and given the degree to which k*hl is synonymous with shitposting it would behoove them to not openly advertise that the interior is probably filled with garbage.
>>40548
Like I don't want to fucking read these peoples blog posts. Why should I give a shit? It isn't even like a single one of their lives probably even changed to begin with because they're all NEETs and shut ins. I'd be interested reading an Italian, Spanish, or New Yorker describing events for example, or possibly accounts from around the world, but not from them. Any passing carelessness on my part for feeling momentary interest was immediately thwarted by the reminder "oh. Yeah. That's right. It's these people."

I should also point out that k*hl is KC2017 and on top of that it's filled with pedos and every sort of filth who finally got kicked off every other board. It is such an absolute shithole that they banned people for trying to make IWO threads there. It wouldn't even surprise me if it's a honeypot. KC by contrast was a genuinely interesting place to be about, holy shit has it been that long? Fuck me. A decade ago. KC was interesting a decade ago. And I come here because it reminds me of KC from then.

All this is a moot point of course because I am endlessly embarrassed and mortified at having wasted so much of my time on KC and ruining my youth with it.

The issue seems not bad on the outside. Tho I guess I won't read because of other readings, but some articles seem promising and actually having a magazine type approach to it.
The Kohl in the name is badly chosen tho the pedo thing really is repulsive and who wants to write for a mag that is centered around a pedo enabling board, besides who is already there or still has the ties?. Given that it's not wholy a Kohl product.
Maybe one day, when I can actually type away what comes more easily in German and I have time to scan some readings of the past for a profound formulation of an idea for an article.

Well, obviously. This board is not the center of the magazine. I'm pretty sure the mods here would pin a thread or link the page, if it was a mag that is less kohlfied. We have a radio, I don't see why mods would refuse pining a thread or liniking a page to magazine on EC.

Ernst can be very arrogant at times. Most of Ernstchan is comprised of blogposts (even if Ernst pretends otherwise), with some serious discussions alongside. Ernstchan is not really appropriate if you truly want to discuss a topic at academic level (it is an imageboard after all, although it feels less like an imageboard and more of a discussion board/forum at times).

>>40576
I read some of it. Nothing was really egregious. Perhaps he got "nationalistic undertones" from the discussion of nations closing their borders (doing what used to be unthinkable). However, there was also one piece about the possible dissolution of the union (not very nationalistic in terms of the US), as well as a piece on how "Capitalism deconstructs itself" during such a crisis.
The only real commonality is the change to society as a result of SARS-CoV-2.

Regardless, it does not matter. I don't care what political persuasion someone has, as long as the work is interesting or fun to read. I enjoyed it.

>US dissovled, so that is clearly a nationalist sentiment
Maybe the definition of nationalism that I use is more historical or narrow in nature, but to me the sentiment is more particularist than anything. People use words in different ways, and words such as "nationalist" are particularly abused.
Take for example Francisco Franco. He reduced the autonomy that various Spanish provinces had before his rule, stifled usage of minority languages (thereby homogenizing culture through the education system and media), and yet is considered a nationalist, par excellence. What about the Scottish National Party or the Irish Republican Army (both nominally considered to be nationalist)? Are they nationalist? How do they compare to Franco? Is Steve Bannon more or less nationalistic when compared to a supporter of a given state's secession from the union (e.g. Quebec, California, Texas)
The word is used in many different ways to mean many different things.

Here is a how I see nationalism:
The goal of nationalism historically in Europe was to unify the disparate independent states based on language, and so dissolution of such a state is not nationalist in nature. Neither does nationalism have to be "right-wing" or "left-wing" (again, words rife with abuse). If you ask me, I consider nationalism to be fundamentally liberal in origin.

I'm the one who wrote those two summary posts, which was at 2 in the morning after reading the zine back to back when it was released at midnight. It was my way of articulating how I felt about the issue, particularly with regards to how the editors did a good job organising submissions. I'm flattered it was used by the OP, but it's not an advertisment and shouldn't be read that way. It was my response in a kohlchan thread shared with other bernds, and should be read that way.
I'm puzzled about the response, frankly. I don't agree with cross posting, but I think OP and others have tried hard to extend a hand of friendship to you. It doesn't have to be ernsts contributing to the zine at all, in my view, just as an encouragement to you guys that perhaps you can revisit the idea of making your own zine. Of course, you could argue that ernstchan as a board is high quality posts anyway, but you're missing a point here that there is a difference between threads, and a well curated selection of articles that have some relation to the board's "culture". I encourage EC to try making a zine, because I want to read what EC has to provide, and how your editing structures that.
However, the venom a lot of you are displaying is unreasonable. Kohlchan has its issues as do all boards (Lainchan, for example, was notorious for the underage grooming of users. Should Lainzine be condemned because of that?), but it doesn't detract from its creations, and Kohlzine is a creative act. It should be seen as a sign of respect that bernds have for ernsts that bernd wants to share with you this, both as a means to share some interesting stuff, but also to encourage you to do likewise.
Bernds and ernsts aspire to share a common ancestry of "pure love". Kohlzine is a means to do that, but the behaviour of ernsts in this thread suggests scorn. It's a real shame.

I think that's an unfair assessment. Setting up the zine to begin with, which is what the editors did, was a lot of work and I admire them for continuing to produce this every month. I can imagine too that submissions can be slim at times, so they work with what they have.
That's what I made that summary post. I was really happy with how the editing for this issue built on a theme. It wasn't just "here are virus related articles" either, I felt that the arrangement was perfect. It was done in such a way that I did, for the first time, read from cover to cover rather than just dipping in and out over a few days. They're really starting to grow in thier work, and it's good to see. I hope it continues.

Aside from the fact a substantial portion of the site are pedos and thus deserve to be executed there's also the troublesome fact that we are .xyz. Do you know why we are not .com anymore? Or why krautchan itself is kill? There's a reason for that longstanding scorn. The fact that I come here and this thread is right next to someone spamming blacked porn is a testimony to why we hate that shithole so much and don't see anything good ever coming out of there. Every once in a blue moon one of them wanders out of their containment site and spams tranny dicks or cats shitting or whatever before getting banned and their posts deleted. It wasn't even all that long ago we found out about a kohltard plan to "raid" us with the only insightful post being some iirc Pole saying "and then you guys wonder why they hate us."

Our board is exceptionally comfy without them.

You, the executioner. That's fucking rich. The idea of you thinking you're remotely qualified to try anyone accused, much less be their executioner is hilarious. You're brave enough to tar and feather friendless outcasts because there are no consequences for doing so. A man can talk confidently when he's secure in numbers. Let's see how you would fare administering justice alone.

By the way, I think child molesters are to be dealt with swiftly and unemotionally by a just system with the meticulousness of an angel and the rjgor of a devil, but I'm skeptical you're one to do it. This moral grandstanding only impresses you, and your fanatical rants are done because you know nobody will meaningfully criticize you. Deep down inside, you know you're punching down. And no, just because pedo organizations like NAMBLA exist doesn't mean they have any meaningful clout.

Kontra because every Kohlzine thread degenerates into pointless name-calling. Until you can produce one zine, just one fucking zine, worth reading, shut the fuck up.

Pedos and trannies and poltards are well hated on KC too but its a necessary evil due to the principle of free speech adapted by kohlmods.

This is why many Bernds use multiple imageboards. Since the beggining of the zine we had dozens of collaborators abandoning Kohl altogether but remaining the contributors. Our mission is to create space for those who are tired of ceaseless shitposting, because neither Ernst(too serious) nor Kohl(too shitposty) provides the same experience as Krautchan few years before its downfall, when people still cared. It was a mix of shitposting and serious discussions intertwined freely and this is what we are trying to achieve here.

I agree that if you advertise your board as a free speech board you will attract unsavoury types .
However the problem lies with the kohlmods. The mods have left cp threads up for hours and replies to 100 before they've deleted it. I've also heard that the mods share it between themselves and that the owners of the website store it (although I do not know how true that is).
At its core, the culture of the website is dictated by the behaviour of the mods. You get cp on cabbagechan because the mods tolerate it. EC has a high amount of self-policing because the ECmods deal with shitposting swiftly and mercilessly.

Kohl will never be KC in its prime as much as we'd all want it to be, but it's the closest facsimile. EC was also the place I first went to after KC's death because it so closely resembled the site in its prime. Kohl was an unusable wasteland populated by yli's spillovers prior to late 2018, and the board culture still hadn't properly developed, so the incentive to use it wasn't there. That changed after EC's closure. It's sad to think that EC dying made nu-KC usable, but it just might've been the case.

As if I'm an admin or moderator who decides who posts. I don't like the pedos more than anyone else or their disgusting threads, but sadly, I don't have the power to excommunicate them. For what it's worth, I unsuccessfully petitioned to have them at least walled off to /b/ where they previously called home on old KC. I like funposting and making silly threads as well as serious ones, and nu-KC is the only place I can do it. Nobody uses yli anymore and 8kun is an insane asylum. bernd.group is a ghost town, and literally no other site apart from EC or nu-KC comes close, so this is what we're stuck with until a new imageboard is established.

It appears that a large wave of refugees from Kohlchan may soon arrive here. Over the last few days serious disagreements over Kohlzine have lead to open conflict between KC's posters. If the makers of Kohlzine are not banned soon it is very likely that their detractors will try to make this board their home. Since it looks like Kohlzine is not very appreciated here it is possible that they will fit right in, but I still wanted to highlight this issue in order to help this community prepare to assimilate a substantial number of newcomers.
Here's a link to the current thread about Kohlzine, so that you may better understand the controversy and both factions participating in it:

BTW just so Ernst knows, anti-KZ posters have advocated for pedophilia, spammed scat and gay porn, and while claiming that KZ runs a cabal or clique in the form of a public discord server at the same time synchronize their spamming and repost out of context takes from said discord server

See the thread: https://kohlchan.net/int/res/7810837.html

I suspect this group is afraid the zine will bring attention to the board and there will be a crackdown on pedoposting, they are probably a small group sharing CP on an encrypted chat app or the hardcore incel faction of KC that needs to post offensive content in order to maintain their safe space

Nah in this case we shouldn't be so hard on Poland. That appears to be an actually published book that's taking things seriously and on the surface perhaps more objectively a study of the Libya conflict and it's collapse.

As for the first pdf...well when you are entirely associated with pedophilia (along with terrorism and stupidity) the last thing you should do is put a post from the board talking about "nubile young things." In any other context that might be funny, but given that it's a post on k*hl I cannot help but wonder that they were talking about actual child pornography being posted. As for the actual zine while I applaud the efforts at least some of them seem to be making towards crawling out of the abyss of shitposting and back into berndom towards the like of being EC tier, the front page coupled with the presumably unwitting irony of some articles cuts the legs out from under them.

In skimming this I couldn't help but chuckle at the rather bydlo analysis of Communism from a pretty unitonically biased and propagandistic perspective being immediately followed by somebody's rather bydlo phrased hot take on peer review that pretty much amounts to bitching about the free market. I do not think that these people have yet come to the understanding that I have, which is namely that a lot of what they and I and many other people from a broad spectrum hate is directly the result of Capitalism itself.

In a short quip, I'd just like you to draw your attention to how the most Capitalistix cyberpunk tier muh market society on Earth is handling the pandemic right now. As an addendum to that, I'd also like to draw your attention to other societies being run by hard right/Capitalistakaneoliberal politicians such as Britain, Brazil, and Russia. I just checked the global SARS-CoV2 toll and the top five bunched together is America, Brazil, Russia, India, and Britain, in that order. Make of that what you will.

>>43958
As a further note I'd like to add that it's become obvious to me over the past year that poltards are a bunch of discord cliques privately organizing raids against other sites, comment sections they don't like, astroturfing 4krebs, and systematically targeting threads and boards they don't like on foreign IBs that dare to dissent from their stupid narratives. I can only presume their accusations of shilling are done to distract and deflect while attempting to justify their own rampant shilling efforts likely including setting up fake "tranny chapo discords" as a false flag to justify themselves.

It will eventually grow just like KC eventually did, much to its detriment. The primary problem is that admins and mods stopped caring about KC and let it progressively go to shit and get colonized by the 4kanker starting in 2014 thus allowing its destruction in 2016. We should have kept kicking them out. If you are incapable of having a discussion you shouldn't be here. Just let things take their natural course whilst banning the retards. Eventually those that stay will get the picture and stop posting like idiots.

>>43970
I too miss Iran and India greatly. People like them and St. Kitts stopped coming there partly as the poltards from Western Europe and N America got progressively worse and more numerous until KC itself was basically similar to cabbagechan minus the pedos and terrorists. I stopped going there entirely by 2017 and well due to this and I suspect those that stayed and migrated to k*hl got progressively more twisted and corrupted into iniquity and stupidity by the Warp that is their general 4/8krebs-esque effluvia.

>>43967
As for him please leave the cube alone. If that is who I think it is he's not a bad poster or an asshole like the rest of them although I fear both he and Syria got corrupted by the Warp over the years. Cube is cool don't gibe him shit.

Speaking of which I would just like to say that I also sincerely do miss some of the Israelis that we had posting back in the day including autism and pird cube. It's a shame to think of it and I wonder how many bernds have actually died IRL so far due to the various wars and strife happening in their countries, the pandemic, and by suicides. Well except for that one Syrian. It is a shit thing to say and I've been trying to make the effort to not be so black hearted lately which I now recognize is partly due to IB shitholes staining my very immortal soul but well that one guy was clearly an Islamist so it wouldnt surprise me he got stupid and died fighting for ISIS or something, but as for the rest I feel bad for them.

A Russian Bernd has announced plans to reopen Krautchan. On this incarnation, pedothreads will be instantly deleted and users banned as will attentionwhoring threads. Low quality bait threads concerning some insipid drama on social media will also be purged unless it concerns a major event.

The shittiest boards I've been always are heavily moderated like this.

In my opinion, good moderation should be almost non-existant and should enforce the rules only, leaving the content moderation to the users. Users can moderate and filter content by ignoring. It's much more effective.

Pedo wouldn't be rampant in Kohl if people just hid and moved on with their life but no, every pedo thread gets 150 replies.

In the end it always boils down to the people using the board, not the board itself. If you have shitty users, no amount of moderation will make your board good

It's like saying a society depends on what people it is made of. Regulating the society in any way seems pointless because it's the people only. But this view ignores the dynamic that comes into being once individuals form relations to one another. A pleasing self regulation might work though, but if it does not, what then?

The point of rules on an imageboard should be to select for a certai. type of user base.

Consider the so-called nigger quota. The Russian believes that this rule will keep out a certain kind of poster, one he believes to be against the spirit of the board he wants. He is correct - only pol-tier retards will stay on a board with such a rule.

The problem with the nigger quota is that it selects for petty nihilistic retards, and the problem with an inverse nigger quota is that 90% of the old KC community has either degenerated into petty nihilistic retards, or given up on KC years ago. It's simply not possible to maintain a cozy old-kc feeling with modern imageboard demographics. EC is the best we can do.

By rule I mean posts that break the law, like. explicit CP, scams and spam.

What I mean is that it's pointless to ban an user because a "forbidden" topic (such as twitter threads) if the general population will keep bringing it up and discussing it anyways.
The difference between boards and real life is that here you are a post attached to a country, disconnected from any sense of personality (except some rare balls). there is only interactions here and those interactions will shape the board, if a certain topic gets ignored, this signals that the board is rejecting the subject. The individual will not feel encouraged to post it again

You can force that. And people who have no idea of their own regarding content openers or are lazy will just react to it. It's a bit like extensional TV, you have nothing else to do and it kills the time even though you feel bad about it afterwards at times. How selective are the users regarding content really, I don't think the question is that easy. And it's not like all users or the general population as you call it, makes threads and stuff.
When you say leave content moderation to the user you don't have a vaguely democratic thing in mind where people decide on the content but something like the user has to cut out the annoying and sickening ads he does not like but is forced to perceive at least for a second or two for every ad he does not like. A board of monads who receive cp or not, they can only decide after being exposed to it.

Eventually, the people who are interested in those topics will fuck off. Proper board hygiene requires aggressively pruning the turbobydlo.

And as I think the German is implying, people who would otherwise not be prone to certain attitudes or styles of shitposting can be infected by the turbobydlo if they aren't pruned. This is exactly how KC went from being something like oldschool 4chan with countryballs to being /pol/ with countryballs.

QFT

Yes and that is precisely why k*hl is and always will be a steaming pile of hot garbage and frankly the sort of criminality that actually deserves to be a snitch: pedos and terrorists. I don't believe in snitchery and generally find the concept of sending someone to jail in a shithole country like Russia, America, or Brazilsorry but this plague is pretty eye opening, those are the top three pozzed countries still and all three have world renowned shitty gulags to be morally offensive and just flat out retarded that I mostly wouldnt wish on anybody including thieves, but those two deserve to be shipped off to jail and possibly beaten to death there. Considering the large presence of both groups, and the ongoing tolerance of them by the mods and rest of community based on what we've been told here, it is no wonder that it is shit.

K*hl is everybody who finally got kicked off of 8krebs along with everybody who got permabanned from KC while being generally too defective even for vierkanal. Among them are our old "friends" who finally caught a perma on KC like pedo Italy and pedo Brazil I think? I do remember seeing that Italian scumbag during the couple of weeks I lurked that shithole and I am genuinely saddened that they are not in jail right now.

Just to be abundantly clear, I hope you pedos get shanked one day.

So you have these filth and on top of that you have the broader community which is not just the worst sort of fucktarded morons but even worse they're people not just foreign but actively hostile to our culture. They'd not even been assimilated to /pol/tard level of foreigner yet. It was obvious they had no place on KC and they probably came to comprise about half of K* along with the pedos, terrorists/wannabe terrorists, and unconscionable morons on there and the reason KC died is it got utterly destroyed by the kinds of people who in 2013 were routinely not only banned but actively range banned if they were annoying enough and by 2016 the mods stopped giving a shit and stopped modding, the result being the wholesale destruction of our community and they did this trying to use the trojan horse of right wing politics and racism because all they knew was "hey, a German chan, with an iron cross, and countryballs and discussion of whatever the fuck haplogroups are this must be another platform for me to rant about blacks and Jews and white nationalism 24/7 while posting tranny dicks all day." This helped slowly drive away all our quality and interesting posters including Iran, India, St. Kitts etc.

That went on with more and more of these foreigners until Slavic butthurt killed the pure love confiness and what little nice parts of KC was left got murdered by the US kulturkampf which is universally recognized as the leading cause of cancer on the internet.

Am I bitter about losing KC, even if it was for the best and the second of the three worst mistakes I ever made in my life? Absolutely. Has my life started going up as opposed to the downward trajectory of being on KC? Sure. But I'm still real fucking bitter about it and cabbagakrebs is where all the fuckwads who made that happen are concentrated.

It has been proven time and again that the vast majority of these people are beyond the capability for redemption of meaningful discourse. This is proven abundantly clear every time they post here and sadly it has poisoned the few actual bernds remaining which saddens me greatly. I can only imagine their lives will go the same haunting way as a heroin addict or meth head, a harrowing journey into loneliness and self destruction.

Meanwhile EC became that shining city on a hill and they just couldn't have that so the cancer went out of their way to attempt to destroy it. The very concept of quality posting sends them into some allergic reaction, some spastic fit of outraged inferiority. I do not understand it nor do I care to, so long as they stay away.

In short, fuck em.
