Thoughts on 4chan?

Another thread?

I mean, yes it is hell and full of horrible stuff but to be fair I guess it makes sense since it allows for people to vent or be as political as they want with little to no backlash.
Haven't browsed it in awhile to be honest, but I can assume it's just as crazy as before.

Just remember that on 4Chan, you're always wrong. : )

While 4Chan does have it's shit stream, just like every social media site ever, it has its moments. We would have nearly as many cat memes without 4chans early days of Caturday. That and the Kenny Glenn case was awesome. I don't think I have ever been on 4chan, but I do know a lot of weird and fucked up shit comes from it

It's the only place I could safely vent about a couple things that have bothered me for my entire life without getting dogpiled, but I don't feel like actually going there.

I think a lot of people's perception of the site has been shaped by those "Top 10 internet mysteries" and "Top 10 4chan pranks" videos on YouTube.

The place used to be pretty good for discussing niche topics like anime/manga, videogames and what not. I found out about a bunch of cool stuff in there and made a few friends who i still keep in touch with to this day.
Unfortunately getting a good discussion going is almost impossible nowadays due to the amount of shitposting, repetitiveness, meta threads and tripcodes. Thankfully I jumped ship long ago, and although I miss having good TES lore threads I wouldn't set foot in there (or Reddit) again.

As for the furry hate thing, that's mostly a meme/tradition of sorts, like a formality. I have no doubt in my mind that 60% of /v/ and /b/ are furries themselves, if you don't believe me just try to make a Klonoa/Solatorobo thread without getting a porn dump within the first 15 posts.

I'm surprised /trash/ hasn't been brought up, considering it's more or less the unofficial furry board.

I still browse 4chan from time to time, though not as much as I used to. I do like the anonymity of it.

im a 4channer. i browse /x/ and /v/. /b/ has gone to shit full of horny coomers. and then there is /pol/.... full of neo nazi idiots. tbh i must not stress enough 90% of 4chan now days is troll posts and obvious bait to get reactions i have been using the site for about 6 years now. then you have the new commers aka "newfags" who just go on there and post to be cool. i see alot of people calling everyone on 4chan a nazi. thats like calling everyone in the state of texas a nazi there are alot of people who use 4chan it gets alot of visitors everyday in the hundreds of thousands. infact there are alot of left leaning people i know irl who browse /pol/. it really is a great site just some... you know not so savory people go on it. long story short. 4chan is the cesspool of the internet but also the savoir of the internet. us 4channers are everywhere. and i mean fucking everywhere i must admit i dont use the site as much as i used too and it has gone to shit the past year. manly because of horny people on /b/ and the nazis in /pol/

Remember Something Awful? Remember Uwe Bowl?

Uwe Bowl beat a bunch of the top goons from SA in a boxing match. A lot of people who weren't tolerated on SA pretty much made 4chan.

Look, if your role models get their asses kicked by someone like Uwe Bowl, I think you really need to reconsider yourself and your tastes in "comedy".

Something Awful was well, it's namesake, but 4chan is the dumpster fire floating down the river of poop...

Something awful is why there a art blackout in the furry community from 1999 ~ 2006. The site costed 10$ to use but would ban you dumb reasons which caused a massive amount of fed up goons moving to Reddit/twitter/more where they don't auto ban you for enjoying anthros.

Both seem to be filled with people who think enjoying 18+ art is a crime and refuse to here counter points that point out the stupidity of it.

I've heard one day "trolling 4chan is like pissing in an ocean of piss"; I've not been there much but it seems like a good quote

I still like using it. I didn't like when I got permabanned for no reason but that's when VPNs are for.
Come again? is there a single site on this internet that doesn't have "that" sort of mods?? HAHA

4chan? I never go to that website, thought I heard of it for a time. My WiFi would prevent me from going into that website becuase that website is dangerous.

Malaysia and Singapore also banned that website too, but I dunno know anymore...

Don't really care what 4Chan thinks about furries. As for the website itself, it has a clunky interface, it can be hard to navigate if you don't know where to go, and there is no meaningful interaction with people beyond posting photoshopped images and cracking jokes. Tried getting involved with the community once, but it wasn't for me....because there isn't really a "community" at all. Its entire user base is anonymous.

A lot if ISPs automatically block the site because it has been associated with making threats of terror attacks, sharing child pornography, and even murdering somebody's mother and sharing the photographs.

I mean, you can find a lot of that too on Facebook and yet nobody's banning it
(except China)
