You cats are going to fuck up a good thing

Everyone should check the attitude and snarky replies when you login here.

u/ziq has been pretty fucking cool about not busting our chops too bad. It is their server, their rules.

u/emma has done a good job building and updating this site.

All of the admins have been equally chill given all the shit in our little sub. No one owes us any respect. I doubt I would pay money to host a server for a bunch of little pricks that most of you have been.

u/thief is gone and there is a lot of work that needs to be done. It is time to circle the wagons: lock down these newbie questions, lets pickup the guides where others have stopped, lets start working together and not against each other... sorry for calling you pricks but damn if most of you are not acting silly by not reading the sidebar or using the search function.

I think this sub needs to move beyond conceal and slight of hand tricks. AI and facial recognition is about to wreck our world pretty hard and very fast. If anyone ever followed user/mojomanDC/ from reddit we need to adopt a lot of his strategy. If anyone here ever got invited /r/prolifters shoot me a DM. I am going to see about pulling most of threads and start posting it here.

We need to start looking at how we can gain inside information. No matter how much skill you feel you have; most of these lifts have been successful more because of luck.

Whoever was cracking on Skardo/Snakez should just fucking leave this sub. Unless anyone else wants to step-up and build an app vs talking shit about finding the holes... why not jump on his bandwagon and make the app better.

My last bit of soapbox... if I don't see less fighting and more strategy I am fucking walking.

These are interesting moves I hope that you get to make!

When feeding the working class is unprofitable, it will be the lifters who bridge the chasm

I agree that we should follow the rules if we want to have a strong shoplifting community on this site. Facial Recognition is evolving and before we know it shoplifting might be impossible or not worth the risk. If we can stick together and exploit flaws in new security technology, we have a chance of keeping shoplifting around. On the topic of Reddit, I noticed that the shoplifting scene is still around on r/illegallifeprotips but quality posts are rare. If anyone doesn't like raddle's rules on language, go back to Reddit and post it there.

I'm a n00b myself, but I do appreciate all this site has to offer. I ignore the drama, and don't cause any. That's not productive. The habitual down voting is juvenile, and the beginners questions that've been asked 5 billion times are annoying but, I either answer them kindly, or ignore them if I feel like I'll say something asshole-y. I am a lifter myself, but I also offer what little insider knowledge I do possess (I've worked in retail my whole life). Any advice I can give, I give. If you're going to have a hobby such as ours, heads need to come together, not butt up against everyone else's. I'm rambling now but, I hope the sub can stay afloat. There IS great info and advice here. /ramble

Why not just make a server on Discord?

Hi OP,

would you kindly elaborate on the content of mojomanDC's strategy? I used to consider myself an intermediate/semi-professional, but I feel like my game has gotten a little stale... And I could really use some new ideas. This is my first post ever. I've been a long time lurker on here as well as the original reddit and intend to contribute as much as I can.

I appreciate what you're trying to do here. All the best!

It's already fucked up and not just because u/theif left. All the pro lifters are gone. The last few weeks alone have made sure that they either get banned or just quit posting.

you are just sad you were banned I'd guess

Uh... I think you meant to respond to someone else? I'm not banned. Otherwise I don't think I'd be able to post.

you're a user who has been around 2 hours but you think raddle has gone down hill

which means you're a long time user with a new account

which means you're either using an alt or you're a ban evader

given how you're complaining, you're likely the latter

enjoy being see through
