Just because they upload source code to git doesn't mean thats actually running on their server. They could easily have some datamining on the live site.

Same goes with 4chins, if the source was up on some git hosting site it doesn't make the site an more trustworthy.

People acting like they will go through every line of code to make sure there's no backdoor. Otherwise you just have to rely on someone else to do it for you and you assume that person is 1) capable and 2) reliable

>> No.54304902

It's not even just that. Even if you went through it all, you have LITERALLY no fucking way of knowing if what's running on reddit.com is what you read (hint: it's not).

>> No.54304913

>closed source > free/open source.
I'm not a freetard, but open source is usually written after hours by people wanting to show off their programming skills and without any time constraints. commercial code is written by people that are judged by the ability to deliver certain functionalities before the deadline, not the quality of code, so they tend to write a buggy mess of copypasted code

Freetard logic:
When something their mental illness likes is open source:
>it has to be open source even though nobody reads the code
>it just HAS to be open source, it's superior!!

When something that triggers violent outbursts is open source:

When something they like is closed source:

A long time ago mootykins basically admitted that 4chan's source is a mess. If it was released vulnerabilities would be found & exploited with hours. Sure they'd be fixed, but not before /b/ had a field day.

If Hiroshimoot is following moot's footsteps we'd see an open source chan does as an entirely new source code - which is unlikely given that it's all volunteer made and maintained.

It's literally hosted on OSX. The only """discussion""" it has is dude weed lmao and tyler swift on the hidden board.
