To be fair /b/ has the worst poster quality due to lack of moderation, reddit and nine gage may have nazi mods that censor stuff but both those sites don't have non stop desu, banana, spiderman, Dat boi, and other spams that are only posted to ruin threads and annoy people.
4chan as a website is alright as other boards do have moderation but if it was just /b/ vs all the other sites /b/ would fall into catagory of worst due to the non stop spam and resulting low thread quality.
It's ironic how some Spammers spam to "save" /b/ but end up ruining it over all.
The summer fag falicy isn't real bruv.
The summer fag idea relies on the concept that the majority of children do not have smartphones or access to computers during school hours.
In reality children will use the Internet when ever and a large number will use the Internet during school on their smartphones. Also the "children have too much homework to use the internet" argument dosnt hold up as children ranging from 5 - 16 will do online gaming any given day at the same rate.
Also the adminis have said traffic does not go up over the summer, if it did it would also spike on the weekends.
In the end it's psycological, if you think the summer fag falicy is real you will be more likely to notice spam and trash and blame it on that when it's rate dosnt really change.
tl;dr the summer fag idea isn't real and it's all in your head.
School has 0 bearing on site traffic nor would it.
It's not 1990 everyone has smartphones and tablets and laptops and desktops and children use the Internet at the same rate over the summer as they do during school, the only change is they use it less during the day but they art effected in the afternoon and on weekends.
Also school mostly effects online gaming, you are less likely to find a child playing on a game during the day but browsing the internet is another story, I have been on 4chan via my phone from a bathroom at my university, location means nothing and site traffic dosnt increase.
No I use 4chan mainly for porn and will brows many boards when ever year round I'm just pointing out logicly the idea of summer fags makes no sense and adminis here have even stated site traffic dosnt go up during the summer.
The summer fag falicy is 100% psycological
summerfags have ruined this board, and others, for eternity
once they get here they tend to stay
that's why you see all these reddit-tier memes EVERY FUCKING DAY now
everyday I come here I feel like I grow another tumor
try going in /b/ more often during the nights. the increase in newfags is very noticable, and they're trying to defend themselves without denying being new whenever they're called out.
also its doesnt have anyhting to do with spam/trashposts, since newfags arent famillier with the usual stuff around here. its mostly visible with all the autistic 9gag memes that start popping up here and with other newfags laughing from them. There's deffinatly a difference in the community here when summer comes.
Stop kidding yourself,
they are very real and they still pollute this site everyday.
/b/ is an open website new people go here all the time but year round, I'm sorry anon but this isn't your secret club nor is it worth getting emotional about.
It dosnt go up significantly enough to matter, it falls under normal daily fluctuations, the summer fag idea is not logical as it hinges on the idea that the majority of children do not use the Internet during school days and don't have smartphones.
If 4chan existed in the 90s the summer fag idea would have some reality but it dosnt now.
They are not real as the idea of a summer fag influx requires a leap in logic byond rational thought.
Also I can post "I'm a blond hair blue eyed Russian model" that dosnt make it true, I think you fell victum to a generic troll.
Remember summer fags arn't real but that dosnt mean the people here are intelligent or mature.
Nice responce however it dosnt change the fact summer fags arn't real And I'm a 22 year old university student.
My classes ended 2 weeks ago but I would like to point out I browsed 4chan during both lectures and labs through out both semesters. Summer has 0 effect on my daily internet usage aside for some days of studying and homework.
No its all in your head.
Masses of people who regular one website don't wait for vacations to use other websites, if they have the time to use one they have the time to use the other.
You are just trying to explain why /b/ is full of I mature and generaly dumb people when the answer is its always been that way.
I would like to point out thread spam is year round, that very tridorce spam I've seen in ylyl threads weekly no matter the season, it can be November and it will still happen.
Summerfags arn't real.
I don't think you have good reading comprehension I brows and post, smartphones make that easy, I'm at a Starbucks right now.
Summer fags arn't real nor are the imagined hors of people that wait for arbitrary times.
Raids are real but very uncommon.
No I've been a regular browser for about 5 years it dosnt change.
However during the summer more people blame Summerfags for spam and shit posting but ignore the same spam and shit posting in winter.
Why can't atheists define atheism?
That spam is made daily, during the winter people just make fun of him, during the summer they call him a summer fag ignoring he's been around year round.
