Works in school, on mobile, isn't blocked anywhere also. Imgur is blocked in most schools.

There are hundreds of image hosts around, just pick one of these: https://voat.co/v/VoatUserGroup/comments/213792

Or use http://pixeldrain.com if you want to do me a favor ;)

I don't know if using a site created by /r/fatpeoplehate (thus the name SLIMgur, not FATugr) is a good idea. Fatpeoplehate was rightly banned by Reddit for bad conduct, specifically harassing the creator of imgur.

That isn't the reason FPH was banned moron. Otherwise no other fat hate subs would have been banned.

And we didn't even put pictures of the creator. We did for the staff. We let the creator make a thread on FPH explaining it. So no. You are entirely wrong.

Not sure what any of that has to do with Slimgur. It was created to keep FPH content off Imgur, where it was being regularly deleted. I figured keeping the content segregated would make you happy, but I have a confident guess that nothing will ever make you happy.

Agreed.

For now it only targets 8chan/4chan but the site is compromised nevertheless.

Anyways, Voaters should boycott imgur: they're in bed with reddit.

Again with the voat vs Reddit. Is it illegal to use both? You all seem so fucking fanatic.

[–] HomerSimpson 0 points 9 points (+9|-0) ago 

Definitely not. But I think they mostly mean because imgur is taking money from reddit. Kind of why reddit bans other image hosts so it can keep imgur as the monopoly on it's site.

Imgur is slow and bloated. I just wish people wouldn't use it at all

According to Imgur the exploit has now been patched. Source.

This is a terrible idea.

  1. The security impact is minimal, as only a few images have been found to be compromised, and only affect people who go on to visit 8chan. Bad? Yes. But imgur is fucking huge and hosts a ton of Voat content.

  2. This is going to piss off everyone and you're going to drive people back to Reddit.

It's an extreme measure for a very limited problem. It'd be more sensible to tell people to disallow Flash by default, and/or to run NoScript.

Maybe voat could give a little message saying "We noticed you posted an imgur link." and then recommend alternatives while linking to a list of reasons not to use imgur.

[–] SuperConductiveRabbi 4 points 5 points (+9|-4) ago 

Is this motivated by hatred of Reddit and its allies, or legitimate concern over users' security?

Good idea, it should include a link to this post: https://voat.co/v/VoatUserGroup/comments/213792

Apparently it has been fixed. http://imgur.com/blog/2015/09/22/imgur-vulnerability-patched/

I hate imgur but I hate the idea of domain bans even more. Especially since Voat toats "no censorship"

2 - No it won't. Most of us openly boycott imgur.com. Also, the site sucks, and "content" hosted there is just recycled. We're all better off without imgur from a technical and ethical perspective. If your only reason to be on voat.co is to look at imgur links, good riddance we won't miss ya!

Imgur has nothing to do with recycled content. The responsibility for that falls squarely on the shoulders of users. Every internet site ever suffers from recycled content.

Why not use a distributed solution like http://ipfs.pics?

I agree. Replace all the imgur images with an image explaining that imgur has been compromised.

Part of imgur is blocked with SOPHOS UTM if you use them
