Great job, team!

March of 2019 — Blocked by Australia and New Zealand becomes one of dozens of sites blocked by ISPs in Australia and New Zealand in the wake of the Christchurch terrorist attack. Their governments, ISPs, and media then spread the fake news that we host the terrorist’s footage from the attack, and that we will be unblocked when we remove it. Of course, you can’t remove what doesn’t exist, so we’ll be on the blocklist for a while yet. In good company.

It was in fact our reporting that got us blocked. We were first to report conclusively that there were dozens of victims — not the six reported elsewhere at that time — because we actually watched Tarrant’s livestreamed video. Second, when New Zealand police started sending out letters to websites around the world demanding they hand over identifying information on anyone and everyone talking about the terrorist attack, we praised Kiwi Farms Josh’s very appropriate response and criticized them for the ridiculous overreach in their own trademark anglo tabloid style (“SICK and DISGUSTING”). Incidentally, Josh’s response gave rise to yet another form of Christchurch related fake news, as mainstream media in the anglosphere claimed that the data Josh refused to hand over was actually on the terrorist himself. In any case, we believe it was this latter article that sealed the deal.

We are currently splitting up some of the custom work we’ve done on LULZ into individual WordPress plugins and releasing them for free:


Greentext is a simple plugin that enables >greentexting in comments, posts, and pages.

Greentexting, originally from imageboards, is a convenient way to quote, summarize, or tell stories.

The plugin gives any line that starts with the > character (or its HTML entity) a default style of color:green, but you can reference the span class greentext in your CSS to style the greentext however you want. For example: span.greentext{color:blue;font-weight:bold;}
