This was brilliant! Dread is so lucky to have you on our side. You deserve far more recognition than you receive, perhaps a unique role that no one else or only the elites have. Thank you for sharing this. Just when I think that you have posted the best opsec guide or topic ever along you come with something to top even that. Bravo to you and your dedication to protecting dread members from those who would unjustly deprive us of our freedom.

Good job mate

How did you manage this without the search function?

/u/HeadJanitor Moderator OP · 2 votes · 5 months ago · Link

Old-fashioned human labor, starting from the first page (433) to the current page (001).

Oh I wish, it was more like the desperation of finishing and going to sleep.

Really, didn't take that long. Just look at the comment count and hit next.

Hella impressive compiling all this without a search function? You have this uncanny awareness of all this content that we all used to be able to explore.

Its wild that we can use recon for indexing all this open source information on old markets and vendors and transaction counts yet cannot do basic searches for basic strings of text on this platform

Ay boss /u/hugbunter is the search options coming back? Or can we only inform ourselves based on how deep we can click through the whole platform to find out the past. It feels someone is controlling the past for some reason

I've been going down this great list, but "The collection of opsec guides" links to an old V2 onion link which doesn't work

/u/HeadJanitor Moderator OP · 1 votes · 4 months ago · Link

Happens all the time. You find the site and realize it's an old V2 address. You might be able to search it off the contents.

Maybe i can save all the contents in those various post in a single IPFS doc, so we can retrieve them in case dread is down ?!

Thanks a lot for the amazing work.
