How did you find out about 4chan? Do you regret it?
NIGHTMARE MODE: If you came from Reddit, you must leave 4chan forever.
Buddies showed me funny pictures on here 10 years ago.
I learn a lot here, and have had some good arguments. There's been a benefit or two.
But mostly it distracts me, takes away from my productive life, and when I get lethargic it keeps me down longer.
Overall I regret it.

I heard it was full of mentally stunted, emotionally underdeveloped manchildren who like to call people faggots. sounded cool.
<watched a documentary called "leigun is expect"
<bought myself a 4chan hacker man mask
<been hacking facebook ever since
<still can't figure out this orange text thing though.
Some friends from college would come here and show me weird shit.
I first came here in 2007 and hated the format so I didn't come back until a year later. Been here ever since. Regret every minute of it.
Friend wouldn't shut up about it. I was underage b8, came on, and left five minutes later.
Came back again about a year and a bit ago because I was bored, sick of the people in my exchange program, and wanted to bicker about Railgun. Remembered the site roughly, and then some horrendous member off /lit/ IRL dragged me in.
Maybe I'm too new, but I regret nothing.
So I was hanging out with my friend Sophie (Turner, from Game of Thrones), and we occasionally go back to my house to smoke weed and fuck. She's sucking my dick while I'm playing Call of Duty, pretty typical, when she says "mmf mnfm fmnfn". I say "what?". She takes my dick out of her mouth and says "4chan. you should go there". I'm like "sure whatever", and she keeps going. Later we're fucking on my couch, I'm still playing Call of Duty. She stops suddenly and says "I'll do anal with you if you check out 4chan". So I'm like "Bitch, finish what you started". So we keep having sex. Later I'm like "Ok, time for that anal" and she's all "No, 4chan first". So I'm like fuck it, I'll try out this "4chan" shit. Go on /b/. Its alright. I see a pic of this girl getting fucked by a horse, and I'm all "Sophie, blow me while I look at this shit" so she's like "Ok". Later I get bored and I'm like "Ok now for the anal". So we're about to do anal but there's no lube. I'm like "fuck the lube cunt bend over" and she's like "Ok". so we do anal. That's it.
I forget how i heard about 4chan.. I just remember always coming here when i was at my friends house because i couldnt use the computer at my house.. This was like 05 06.. It sucked then and it sucks now.. But i keep fucking coming back
All of you fucks make me sick, ruining our anonymity in threads with this stupid bullshit. Since when did anyone ever give a rat's ass about who's been here longer or actually came before who. The thing you guys forget is to keep the site unaware. That's why it's cancerous nowadays. No one wanted to be a spaz and shit post, they wanted to wait and lurk for those who did that shit. Now everyone does that shit. I can't stand it. These threads are fucked, same with the Desu ones. Just a big fuck fest of seniority. Kill me please, end this shithole of a website already. All of those "oldfags" that you see aren't here anymore because of those reasons. People grow up and leave. Sites get old too, just like anything else. Better importunities arrive, it's all there is. Like cells being cycled away from your skin; new life fading 15th^ generation of waste.
some asian nerd guy in my dorm was giving me an ice cream and left a note saying "I got you a present, but I eated it" or some shit,this was in 2008. then I heard him say something edgy/exasperated about "4 chan" and I googled it and yes if I could turn back the clock I would. for the first 6 yrs or so, I kept a kind of mental barrier, then all of a sudden I realized I felt a belonging. I still hate it and have tried to quit several times but for all of the constant shit and unimaginative rehashing there are moments of utterly inspiring hilarity (perhaps only for me) and something about it seems essential to understanding the world and I fear that it's become indespensible even if I leave forever I will still be thinking "if I could just browse 4chan without getting totally high and jacking it to despicable shit non-stop I could totally become whole again and enhance my theory of everything" and it's probably all vanity and illusion. so I owe it my ongoing depression and nights awake binging and cumeing and the whole limited mediocre college experience but also something really off the wall and
One of my super autistic good friends thought I used to browse cuz I was more autistic than him, so eventually he showed me and I was hooked, that was 3 years ago now, I regret everything
2010, was on class with muh nigga, we where intriged by the bad reputation... whatch the first post (prob ylyl) and we both laughted in the middle of class like shittards .. it was a good day
met some batshit crazy Austrian chick on an mmo 9 years ago, wed chat on yahoo and send each other stupid shit, shed send fucked up dicks of devil chicks with dicks.
thought i was stupid as fuck, but kept coming back. dont really regret it, shits was fast fresh and entertaining. now its all repost and faggots
My ex talked about it all the fucking time and how I 'was too pure to be tainted by it' so I assumed it was mainly gore, and I like gore so I went on it. He meant porn.
here I am.
Pretty recently, actually. I'd thought that green text stories were funny a while back, so I went on here in search of new ones. Too bad I no longer find them funny, nor do I have any faith in the future of humanity.
follow up, in 2004? I think that was when I saw it, it was mainly anime shit back then which is why I find it funny that all these "oldfags" are complaining about 4chan being ruined by anime.
I can't even remember how I stumbled into this shit hole back about 2006. It was probably something to do with Ogrish.
Do I regret it?.........every fucking day.
2009, saw this somewhere
I wanted to know who the fuck boxxy was and why you guys were so obsessed with her.
Friend always came over my house freshman year and would be laughing his ass off. I would ask him what was so funny on the computer amd he would always say "nothing". We also watched two guys get there heads cut off in sophomore year on here. Was the first time I saw shit like that in real life. Fucked me up because I was a normie. I changed real fast when I started coming here by myself. I always thought my friend was weird and antisocial but in reality He just knew how the world really worked. I was in some normie dream matrix. Sometimes I wish I could go back to sleep and keep dreaming. I think sometimes he was trying to keep me sleeping in normie land for my own good. He knew this curse amd I embraced it like a fool. God please take the knowledge I have away. Let me go back to sleep. Wake me up from this nightmare
This story makes me want to kill myself.
My friend told me "hey, go make an account on this site you'll like it"
I went on it and couldn't figure out how to make an account and after 30 min I realized you can't. 3 years later, I'm still here.
I learned about it back in high school. Some dude was looking at a loli thread during lunch and I looked over his shoulder to see what he was doing. I went "Gah, fuck! What the hell is that?!" He told me about it and I swore to myself I'll stay away from 4chan. When I sank into depression and student loan debt during college I came here
I learned about 4chan because of the "Hitler did nothing wrong" campaign. I'm a dew drinker and I was excited for the chance to name a new flavor. When I saw that the top choices were "Hitler did nothing wrong" and "gushin grannys" I was angry. My first thought was "what kind of fags would think this is funny." The rest is history. Now........I am one of those fags. /b/ros for life!
as a youth in japan wishing to become a professional shrimper like my father i thought that i would improve my skill set in the trade by learning everything from the random board of this site.
My high school buddy with whom i used to play wow showed it to me in like 2007. He also said this place used to be much better.
Dont regret it tho, many fucked up people here, just like me
I posted my dick pick on 4chan one time in 2009, Fast forward to now and I am running for office in my town. I'm not to worried about the things I posted being linked to me, but there is that small chance...
I heard from 4chan waaay before I heard from Reddit. The first time I entered was maybe beacuse of movie leaks (?). I really don't remember.
What I remember was that the first time I entered /b/ I saw a picture of Kurt Cobain's corpse. And well here I am. Rolling for trips from time to time.
>be me late 2005
>friend sends pic link of funny
>ask him where he keeps finding funny
>says dunno just do
>friend honours rules 1and 2
>i copy image link to new http bar
>remove all random lettering till i was left with 4chan.org/b/
>life has been ruined eversince
I saw a picture - an advertisement banner of some kind
of a black woman looking at the camera with a very serious look
>"Centipedes? In MY vagina?"
>It's more likely than you think!
>FREE PC CHECKUP
I found my way here from that.
Far more disturbing of a story than I thought before typing
Met a Weird weeboo in a highschool engineering class
Always wore a fedora and fingerless gloves I fucking swear it. Made friends with him cause pity, he had a ton of dank memes he collected, asked him how he found them, I've been here for 2 years now, and regret finding this place
Some retard on a message board was bragging about about being on this board and made it sound bad ass. He pretended like this was some super secret fuckin society and you needed some secret decoder ring and mod god permission to get in and shit. He posted a meme of Pedo Bear so I googled Pedo Bear and lo and behold the first 3 pages directed to nowhere else but right here on /b/.
Do I regret, hell yeah! I'll never be able to pass a polygraph test for law enforcement. The moment they ask me if I've ever seen CP, I'll probably burst out laughing,
looking for armature transsexuals because i got bored of the pornstars
went through a site called tranchan and somehow ended up here
it was the time when linetrap first came about so i was basically searching for traps even before i knew what the term trap actually meant
Faggot in high school acted like he was so cool because he knew the 'rules of the internet' and went on 4chan found out you guys are pretty fuckin troll i love it
brothers friend showed me it
yes I regret it because it helped me find my inner trans woman and now I am a tranny freak
I've never been on 4chan, and from the reviews fuck this place and everyone posting!
When I was in grade 9 I was introduced to both Steam and 4chan by a TF2 addict who I also suspect was a massive mlp fag.
Since then I have gone from a meme spouting /b/ tard to a weapons loving /k/ommando to a full on Nazi on /pol/ all in the span of 5 years.
I am now 19 and am on my way to starting my career as an undertaker. 4chan has been a large part of my development as a person honestly. I have learned a lot about life from this shitty place.
a decade ago, my autistic friends in grade 7-8 wanted to get green spandex bodysuits under actual suits to look "anonymous" (not the stupid guy fawkes mask)
I've been lurking ever since and regret it 70% of the time.
The forums from D2jsp in 2006. Don't regret comeung here I regret staying the last 5 or so cancer filled years.
nope, deleted all the pics i had of her after we broke up
i wouldn't consider myself a chaser, true i've been attracted to transsexuals since my early teens but with my ex i just happened to fall in love with somebody who happened to be born male.
she is the only transsexual i have been in a relationship with, i've mostly dated gg's
I used to be a cringy preteen who wanted to be an edgelord in 2007. One day my normie (now cringe worthy) meme site went down for the day so I googled "where to find edgy new memes" and I've been here ever since.
>focus on history
>dat reddit introduction tho
>must find my way home
Pretty sure it was some fat retard on John Romero's forums years ago
I was an early YouTuber and I learned about Scientology/Anonymous on YouTube in 2006 or 2007. I was interested in the whole Anonymous vs Scientology war so I looked into Anonymous and found 7chan and from there 4chan.
someone in high school showed me a thread about good ways to kill yourself. I remember loling at a post about gluing your hands to your head and jumping off a chair with a noose of cheese wire around your head like pic related.
I remember the banners were up for 4chan's 4th birthday.
>be me, female aged 14 at the time
i had just moved to a new state, so new girl, on top of that, pale ass ginger with glasses. i'm fine with being a loner but too much of a puss to say fuck off to the weirdos that 'befriend' me...furry type faggot creatures. i didn't know anything about 'furries' at the time, or 'vampire people' or..well..just autistic people in general i guess-i lived a very sheltered life up to the point.
so it's this group of 3 over weight girls who didn't shower regularly. (already...i do not fit in with this clusterfuck) the fattest one, ratty blonde, idk what her name is any more, was a wolf 'hybrid'...second girl, the 'group bitch' went by the name Elf, had short bleached hair and was a ...witch..fairy..cat...vampire.... the third girl was the shortest/second fattest with curly brown hair that was called 'squirrel' and she was a...squirrel.
they didn't even ask me what my name was they just straight up called me ferret...:[
ANYWAY...so the school year goes by, im sort of being carried along by this parade of autistic freaks, im too new, too shy, too much of a push over idk but i'm also intrigued by the fuckery of it all so what the hell. i new i'd be moving again at the end of the school year so why not kill some time..
so every night after school we all get on aim and weeboo or whatever the fuck that sites called that allows you to log into all your IM accounts at once its been so long idfk cbf to look into it right now..we're all on their in chat rooms and shit and there's always this guy-no idea where he officially came from tbh...but he's hot, scary, scrawny, 20 something at the time and we're all googly eyes over him..kinda looks like an anorexic eminem...we skype with him and shit and of course he's only there because what juggalo doesn't want three fat bitches and a ferret to skype with them...
he calls himself 'zorn' and bloodbloodsexsex and shit he's a goddamn wreck...but he's hot so w/e..
should i bother continuing?
Also I remember that I felt guilty browsing because I was a christianfag kid at that time, then I move out to the edgy phase when I bragged to my friends about this site, then I went onto the wizard phase and this is my final form I guess.
I think I just heard some fags at school talking about bronies and neck beard white knights with shitload of porn and I had to check it out. Anyway subscribe to this shit
back in 09 I started high school, the group of people i started to hang out with were all /b/tards
they kept mentioning 4chan, told me to go, and here I am. Do I regret it? Yes. Every minute of my life I regret being here. I'm addicted.
I'm here forever.
>Do I regret it? Yes. Every minute of my life I regret being here. I'm addicted.
>I'm here forever.
why? 4chan is a fucking normiefest now, what can this site do to hurt you? It's mildest than ever before
this is true. but I just can't leave. I just can't, i just can't. i swear I've tried but I just can't leave. I want to leave, this place is nothing, it means nothing, why can't I leave?
Old boyfriend told me about it from his friend, mentioned it was where they came to find the best furporn. Needless to say, we aren't together anymore.
I don't regret 4chan, just having to explain it to others.
eventually eminem decides he likes me a lot and starts singling me out from the witch vampire forest creatures. he's insane and i'm retarded so we hit it off really well. he starts showing me stuff from this weird site and i'm grossed out and freaked out but still curious.
long story short, we talked to each other for seven more years after that. when i turned 19 i bought a bus ticket to the other side of the country to go meet him for the first time in person and we fucked for two weeks straight. then i came back to my home and that was the end of that, i still get on 4chan every now and again though.
I was into raging games in middle school and I discovered 4chan through the myg0t forums in like '06
found it from funnyjunk or something when I was still in school around 2008. mainly browsed /b/ back then but i prefer /pol/ these days.
>used to go on bb misc forums
>heard that those "memes" come from 4chan
>goes on this "4chan"
>sees photoshopped CP (might not have been a shop now that I think about it)
>4 years later, one night im bored
>tired of "le reddit"
>started lurking 4chan
>been lurking everyday since 12/2015
Do I regret finding 4chan?
This site has sunk me in, now I'm stuck with you faggots.
I watched this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUtd4ehOkfQ (my faggot friend shared it with me, skip to 1:31, although they must of reuploaded it because I watched it back in 2013), then I looked up 4chan on urban dictionary, then I went here. As a normie, I was disgusted and the first thread I saw was LazyTown r34, but I had to come back. I love this site too much, but it takes away.
I honestly don't remember how I even heard of 4chan. All I remember is hearing of something called /b/ a lot, so I google searched it around late 2007 and had no idea what the fuck was going on here
Friend in HS used to send me memes like advice dog and ORLY owl, finally determined I was "tough enough" to handle 4chan and told me about the site.
Ended up getting really depressed a few years later and camwhoring...so yeah I regret it but whatever. Never gonna see anyone from HS again.
I just can't seem to get off this damn site.
I heard about it from friends and the news. I don't regret it because besides work this is the only time I get to talk to people, it's also nice knowing that I'm not the only autistic retard out there.
Shit, this makes me feel like a bad sibling because I have a rather antisocial 13 year old little sister and I've accidently had /b/ on another tab before and told her raids without telling her how I knew it- may have put the two together
It's a funny chain of events.
Webcomics, then I searched for porn of a webcomic, which led me to the ED article about that webcomic, which led me to the huge mass of 4chan-related ED articles, which led me to /b/.
But I've always been kind of a casual, in addition to not fitting in.
Heard about when mw2 came out, through a steam group invite. Checked it out but didnt understand it much and there was fucked up pictures that my parents would see i was looking at since the computer was in the living room. Sophomore year came around and my friend told me about it and we browsed it together for a bit while we hung out. 4 years later or whatever and im here
Also no I don't regret it. Its made me laugh a bunch and helped me when family life was shit. Anyone who says they regret it is a fag because they could have stopped it from happening
>10 years ago
>got a PSP for my birthday
>my older brother would borrow it all the time
