>being as mean as possible in an attempt to fit into the 4chan community
The problem you're having here is that you're thinking these people are being mean. they aren't. they're just assholes, psychopaths, sycophants, etc etc. Nobody here is trying.
Get it into your head that they aren't being bad, you're expectations are just those of a whiny liberal bitch.
i agree with op. the tipical 4chan browser of today is just a tryhard wannabe edgy not opopular in school 15-20 years old boi who thinks it's still a thing to browse this gay gathering site
i've only been here for 6 years or so so im by no means an oldfag but people on /b/ used to be a particular way cause ot was funny and actually made sense.
But now with the hordes of underaged kids here, the new "norm" is to be as edgy and offensive as possible even when it's not funny at all.
Cause you know, hurr durr im in the 4chan club guys, im mean too
Holy fuck you've got to be one of the most retarded people to ever post here. That whole /b/ psychopath thing is just a generalization, the majority of the people here are try hard edgelords who blame their social awkwardness on mental issues
>implying it's ever been different
doesn't mean I approve of those edgy cunts btw, but it's always been this way.
4chan is not for chads. 4chan is not for normies.
Simply put... REEEEE!!! NORMIES GET OUT!!!!
the ideal 4chan denizen speaks only truth, without embellishment and lets the facts reflect the stupidity or intelligence of those he responds to. On occasion he may throw in a ", faggot." for good measure.
>For the lulz
Can't tell if oldfag or underaged redditor
Either way, you should probbly gtfo
everyone here is either a fucking retarded edgelord or 12
