the idea of a distributed forum is really really old:

Seems like they never made it.

Well, we do this because it's fun. Whether enough people start to use it or not isn't the main point. It would be nice, but not required.

The awesome 'rslight' and 'bbs' wouldn't exist without this project. Ok, maybe not everyone would use the word awesome.

Anyway, here's one reason for the failure of so many projects like this, "the moral of this debased movement is that anything involving ego is likely to fail" They tried, as many have, to make a totally anonymous and uncensored system. This usually tends to degrade to the point that nobody wants to use it.

Rocksolid is not uncensored. It's moderated at the node level by each particular admin. We never claimed to be working on a completely uncensored project.

Another quote from the site you referenced, "Another way of making this kind of a system is to literally copy the NNTP model." Well, that's exactly what we did here, and as far as maintaining the ability to read and post to the same discussions from different nodes, it's working very well.

The underlying structure of rocksolid has so far proven to be pretty solid. Whether anyone wants to use it or not is their business, but we're having a good time.

See parts of freenet for that.

If somebody wanted to run a fully uncensored node, it would work as well (I mean, with the same software setup and all). It might just be that other nodes would stop syncing at one point, thus excluding it and dividing the structure.
