I’ve run into a brick wall trying to pull up old articles that were saved numerous times by other people, including saves of my own. A few articles dealt with Israeli influence in the US, and Israeli backstabbing their US ally. Also purged were articles that posed legitimate questions in regards to the anthropogenic climate change propaganda. Goddamn ministry of truth is crackin down!

I noticed something similar when I was searching for an article about George Soros. I was reading in blog pages that kept referencing the same article from Japan times, but I could not find that article anywhere.

just you know, you can save offline pages

Still it is concerning if this is happening. Saving an offline page doesn't address the overall problem of restricted information.

The thing about archives is that they give an impression (false or not) of legitimacy. A locally saved page could be easily tampered with.

you could do the same with archives

I could? How? I get how the archive owner/admin could, but not how a user would do it.

Yeah, I’m aware but I don’t own a computer, and my POS phone is low on storage. For awhile I had been going to a couple archive sites just to back up debate points with decent linked info, but those days are rapidly coming to an end.

what really is stopping you from building one? a few hundies you can buy everything you need... storage is cheap

I know fuck all about computer building or anything else related to computers so that kind of stops me. I haven’t had semi long term access to a PC since AOL came out lol. Shit, I didn’t even bother buying a cellphone until around 2010. Seems like a headache to figure all that stuff out.

HAve you looked into a flash drive to store your downloaded stuff, that you want to keep but don't have a lot of room for. You can get a 64-GB drive for under $20. Some come with USB C, if your phone has that you're set. Otherwise you'd need a USB micro adapter, a bigger pain to use.

Yes, and they even have a public removal request process. This is not the archive you're looking for. Anyone have an open source alternative?

Try using the open source program, Zotero for archiving links to these webpages and it also makes a complete snapshot of the webpage too.
