Haven't been on /b/ since 07 (First here in 2003 when 4chan was just a lil shit pool of troglodite shit)
Came on here a lot for the raids, the desensitizing, the actual memes (now EVERYTHING is considered a meme. i.e. ifunny, 9gag, etc.)
Got bored tonight, remembered this shit actually existed and I'm assuming all the other oldfags have nomadically travelled elsewhere (possibly reddit).
I've been refreshing every hour, on the hour, and this is all I've seen:
> MICHIGAN/MISSOURI/INSERTSTATEHERE THREAD POST NUDES
>Would you fuck this girl? (doesn't post nudes)
>So many god damn trap threads (which IS actually gay as shit)
>Kik codes (which are child porn 99.99% of the time)
>about 60% more porn threads than I used to see.
>Loli threads (eh it's always kinda been here, now just out of hand)
>Some Andy Sixx log meme (sometimes funny but still lame as fuck)
My question is what the FUCK happened? How did it come to this? where's the raids, the trolling, the serial killers, the fuckery in general? Enlighten me; I'm also extremely fucking drunk.
Anyways, the log "meme" was created by an oldfag or a couple oldfags who got tired of exactly what you're describing. All this shot came after the fappening.
So they got sick of the porn and the log of shit thing started. Cuz /b/ is shit. It's the natural progression of things I guess.
I agree. Oldfag since 2008. There were always memes and porn, but there was humour achieved through group effort and occasionally good deeds too. Kiddy porn has gone only to be replaced with traps and photos not meant for sharing. Same shit ad finitum.
As stated, memes and the internet are now the in thing. 4chan has just gone down since :( no more raids, no more personal army, not even anymore EFG (not that many would recall who that is)
I know enough but don't really care that much
raids used to be fun as fuck to be a part of. I felt I was a part of trying to open eyes and for people to stop being such stupid fucking sheep, and for the sheer ignorance and bliss...
I probably haven't seen any EFG because it probably fucking died around 07 when I stopped /b/rowsing

Mods delete most kind of post that don't fall on these categories. Trying to make a funny thread about messaging a whore and rolling numbers? Deleted.
Wanna make a thread about creepy childhood stories? Deleted.
Whana make a Ride? Yes, you guess it, Deleted.
This fucking gook moot only achievement is allowing the loli back. I bet is him fapping on every loli thread.
But his a hack and a fail.
checked, but you are one of the people that i'm probably talking shit about.
You obviously don't understand, so you probably fit in with the guy above.
Idk what that is, so it probably was a good idea to leave.
Moot created this in 2003 for the sole purpose of fapping to loli's most likely. He's also a fucking faggot.
You aren't wrong about that.
I didn't say it did. I'm saying the 5 year span I was on here it did. Not only should you read things, but also comprehend them.
It sucks. This place used to be the shit. Now it's anonib or just gay ass dudes trying to convince themselves they aren't gay by jerking their shit to traps.
No, I'll tell you what's lame: you being a faggot making this thread, and those fucking scam artist cuntbags constantly mirroring this shit at thebarchive et al. We're completely data mined. The real anonymity is gone.
That's what I'm saying, there is a shit ton of porn but to say there is more loli is a misnomer when they generally just have a single thread, especially considering /b/ had a shit ton more cp
nah. im with ya, im an old fag too. i remember the raids, the groupings, the general good memes (bachelor frog), the threads with good drawings. i remember when scientology was something this place fucked with.
but im also sure im forgetting a shit ton of porn.
but deep down inside, i agree with ya, this place is more about porn and faggotry now a days then it is about the lulz. i miss too miss the lulz
so where did the lulz go? whats the place where '16 yr old male mindset' goes now? i wanna see some crazy shit, and i wanna read about some dumb shit, or be a part of a raid.
where are the lulz?
>what the FUCK happened?
Around 2012 the summer faggot crowd didn't leave in September and the cancer grew from that point. Unimaginative idiots. HERP DERP TITS ASS ROLL TRAP DICK CELEB WWYD FEET until you just want to scream. The flood of sludge content. /b/ used to be creative.
Some things never change though, like OP still being a massive faggot.
I swear to god the most threads i've seen today is the cock tribute.
they literally just print a pic and cum on it. what is the fucking point of this shit? why is it shitposted so much?
alright. so how do we fix it?
i dont think we can turn the tide on 4chan against this faggotry. best thing might be to abandon ship and make our own shit.
if we build it, they will come
OR. we become even more desensitized that we were before. We push these fucking summerfags out by posting shit they don't understand, we trick them into fucking up and giving us a backdoor on their personal info, do fucked up shit like in the past, etc etc etc.
True oldfags have no morals, love humiliation and blackmail, love seeing inhumane shit. It's simple really.
Anons deciding they've had enough, packing up, and making their own chan. If memory serves, the last major exodus was in 2014. Whatever survived of old /b/, it's all scattered into the wind now.
do you know of any good places where there are many hold outs? i just want a place where technically literate, and generally literate, people congregate and just do fun shit. I dont need more cock pics or pussy or tit pics, i need the lulz
They have no idea
/b/ if we could possibly reclaim this shit and weed out the gays and furries that somehow took over.
It's all it is now. It hurts a little.
The normies that arrived have a different... uh... concept of what being anti-social means. To them posting nudes of their girlfriends or close family members, facebook pictures of their friends from college along with explicit comments is their idea of edgy and I can sort of see how that makes sense from the perspective of someone who is somewhat or even fully integrated in society.
Traps and fags in spite of all the media attention they get are ostracized and hated so they fit in here among the other outcasts. Lolicons are the extreme example of pariahs, they've been here since the beginning and they keep their loli to 1-2 threads at a time.
What doesn't make any sense are the generic normie threads that after a brief scouring of the catalog I found about 30. Completely out of place. Normies gtfo, seriously.
My biggest bet is everybody uses phone apps instead of desktops. Goodbye civ threads, role play threads, quick edited pic responses, etc.
That and no one greentexts anymore. What gives? Why did the golden era of spoiling the lowest moments of our lives ever end? Too hard to ">" on the phone?
It's fucking ridiculous.
WOULD YOU JACK OFF TO HER? prob. if you post nudes
FEET THREAD ASS THREAD HAIRY THREAD BUTT THREAD PUSSY THREAD TIT THREAD COCK TRIBUTE THREAD
idk why this shit is even allowed. It's not even regulated.
Sage hasn't done jack shit in almost the entire history of this website
>So i'm guessing it will never be the same
>acting surprised something had changed over the past decade
>using somewhat dated buzz words like summerfag
Yeah you're full of shit, op.
Trap not gay. Trap trap.
And you're definitely part of the problem.
How? Because you choose to be OP but post no OC. Instead you complain. You do not contribute and you're entitled to be entertained when you come here. Fuck off until you have something to actually post.
In other words, LURK MOAR FAGGOT
Just the site being taken over by normalfags and being influenced by outside websites.
>/v/ is 90% advertising/shill threads for latest games
>/vg/ started off as a cool idea but turned into 90% of the threads being tripcode discord circle-jerk animu non-game cancer
>/ck/ looks good at first but the more you look you realise it's companies surveying people's likes and dislikes. All the threads like (What are you cooking today, which one is better, going to X in 5min what should I get? and other obvious survey shit
>/r9k/ was supposed to be the OC only but turned into lonely sad fucks spamming frogs
>80% of the threads on /b/ should be moved/moderated to other boards like the porn boards or /soc/.
>/pol/ is basically /int/
>/pol/'s furfag-tier of cancer has leaked into every other board
>/f/ is going to be kill in 18 months when Flash is no more
>/int/ was so bad they had to make a shitposting version of it called /bant/
>/gif/ is going to shit now that you'll have 300 post threads with only 10 webms, or 8 threads like "gay sex", "gay sex with hats on", "gay sex on boats" instead of consolidating shit to one thread
>half of the threads on /c/ should be condensed into "one thread per show" rather than having 6 fucking k-on threads (one for each character)
Honestly I'd say only /a/, /tg/, /jp/ and /vr/ are anything close to what 4chan could or should be on other boards.
Also tried finding the other screencap about how /pol/ are the new furries but cant find it right now.
So, you would like this place to cease to exist, but don't have the will power to actually stop coming here. If 4chan shut down, you'd start spamming reddit about how GOOK personally betrayed you that same day.
The point I'm making is you want entrainment but you don't want to actually be the one to do any entertaining. Which is exactly the problem here. Too many faggots like op and you, who can take the time to complain, I'm essence making this place shittier, but can't be arsed to actually put any effort into making a decent thread. Too many complainers not enough contributors.
This thread has absolutely nothing to do with OC.
I complain because it's gay as fuck because you're probably one of the cancerous fucking queers that come here for this dumb shit.
>This thread has absolutely nothing to do with OC
Exactly my point. Why is /b/ such shit? Because idiots think OC just falls out of the air.
>all these threads are shit!
>let me make one that is equally shitty but complaining about the other shit threads!
This thread is posted every single day. You are not original. You have not brought up any new points. You will not be the last to make this thread. You are part of the cancer that has been killing /b/ for years.
People try to make better threads, you faggot. They get filled with shit memes and spiderman, and faggots like you who drop the dicks they're holding long enough to type some stupid shit.
/b/ is shit because of you trap loving, furry yiffing, loli loving pieces of shit.
This thread is more original than the shit that has been getting posted hour after hour.
eat shit already.
You're not listening. Threads complaining about log threads (i.e. this thread) are just as common as those log threads. I literally see this thread every fucking day. Again, nothing original.
And you don't see how when everyone has this mentality the quality of the site goes down? Or do you just expect everything to be presented to you on a silver platter? You know SOMEBODY has to put in the work if you want the site to be better. At least we all know it won't be you.
Everybody has this mentality, stop trying to psychoanalyse /b/, it’s /b/. It was never going to remain the same for all enternity. Get over it and focus on a career, you sad, lonely manchild.
Honestly its the Russians and people weaponsing the Internet.
4chan created a space that could not be commodified and sold to normies but the Ruskies realised this shit can destatabilise the world. Who knows.
Gay as fuck now. Maybe that tells you something about the world.
>trying to find an answer
Hardly. I've been giving you fucks answers each time I see one of these threads. None of you want to do shit but complain. Just as bad as the people you complain about.
Yes. I'm telling YOU to move along.
All you're doing is making yourself look like a dipshit. oh god all you guys do is complain, WHERES THE FUCKING OC.
this thread isn't about OC. this thread is me saying this site is shit. this thread is me showing that people can actually post relevant shit.
go jack off and go to bed you fucking tool
And the retard strikes again. I know that dumbass, I was implying your post would be better directed at OP. You know... the guy crying how /b/ changed since he was last here 10 years ago.
No my answer is what works.
Post C.P. till the normies run scared.
worked last time and the time before that and always works
Be the change you want to see. You can't do anything besides that. And right now it would appear you'd prefer /b/ to be filled to the brim with threads complaining about how /b/ sucks.
>Create space of absolute freedom
>Initial burst of wild things happens, some creative/interesting/funny and some mean-spirited and dark
>Devolves into limp-wristed perversion/constant porn
/b/ is actually a really interesting case study in how people respond to "freedom", OP
At least things still happen here. It's rare. But this year alone I've seen 6 people an hero, 7 potentially poison themselves, 1 legitimate and dumb psychopath, an OP or two that post semi-annually, and a couple doxxes.
Good job, detective.
>Some Andy Sixx log meme (sometimes funny but still lame as fuck)
I straight up play with my gf doo doo to nut.
not but if you think "starting a sentence with 'and'" is wrong you're probably some high school queer that got a boner/wet minge over their english teacher giving them an A on their essay
the internet only requires basic grammar and spelling; it is no place for autistic "rules" that some old bearded fuck decided was necessary for essays and shit. "And" is a real word, And it can easily start a sentence since this is the internet, not your 4th grade intermediate english class, faggot
It seems like there's nowhere else to go anymore. All the other clearweb chans have either always been shit or are blatant hotspots. And all the deepweb chans got shut down, even though they weren't great anyways.
I disagree about /pol/. They spread cancer throughout the entire internet in an attempt to get Trump elected. That's about the closest thing to a raid that I've seen in the past 6 years. Admittedly since the election they've been shit though.
While I agree that people don't post enough Original Content (digging through enough shit eventually reveals the gold), that's not what's killing this site.
I joined back in '07, and at that time, NO ONE knew what a meme was, hell, people were still getting familiar with the internet. People didn't know what the fuck "a 4chan is?"
This shit hole is dying because it's gained too much popularity over the years. This site cannot, and will not be fixed unless you can bring the amount of users back down.
I would say to move to 2x4chan, but even that place is a decrepid shit hole.
This site was good when there were few like minded users who wanted to take advantage of people who were still learning the internet. But now you have kids growing up with this shit that are all too familiar with how to get around the net, that trolling and raiding doesn't have the same effect.
Eventually, this board will just be porn, if it isn't already now..
The good news is that other boards exist, and while they might be slow, they are hell of a lot better than /b/. Like /ck/ comparing the best McD menu items while faggots get pissed that it's not a real thread about cooking.
Fuck you /b/, and fuck all you influx of normie faggots for ruining this shit hole.
>inb4 I was the problem back in '07
I lurked for a few years before ever posting.
>Fuck you /b/, and fuck all you influx of normie faggots for ruining this shit hole.
That's what you get for enabling newfag Baby Boomer stormfags to take over 4chan.
I see you shitheads always complaining about this bullshit reddit spacing.
I don't understand what making a post easier to read has anything to do with reddit, but then again, I don't go there. I browse /news/ more than I ever have reddit, and that's a text only based board where faggots call you out on bullshit grammar and spelling.
I'm a retard and maybe misinterpreting your post, so instead of speaking my mind and making a fool of myself, I'll keep quiet.
I applaud you for the quick reply though.
Proving your worth on 4chan of all sites if a pointless waste of time and makes you look like a fucking tool.
You can prove your worth with pics all fucking day long, but in the end, you miss the entirety of this site, which is being
Who gives a fuck how much you make. Come on here to conversate with other like minded shit heads, not be a faggot bragging about the best car.
I swear, you're just asking to be a meme. Reddit will accept you more than this place ever will.
You're the oldfag now. You have to post the thread types of yore now.
Giving your honest opinion on /b/<
Because I give a shit on an anonymous message board. Not like this thread will be remembered tomorrow. It'll be forgotten unlike every fucking porn thread.
At least log threads are more memorable.
So did I, but it was still funny as fuck and classic /b/. I spent most of the early 2000s on forums and only bothered with this shithole a few years ago. I missed the glory days and Brad was a highlight.
>making assumptions without any clear evidence
I hate them, and the only reason I go into them is to get a clear definition as to why people find the time to post them. Otherwise, I just ignore them.
As I tell them, they will eventually go away, as nothing lasts forever, just as all the other big time 'maymays' that annoyed everyone did.
>Making assumptions without any clear evidence.
>implying that I’m not behind 7 proxies
>implying that I’m not IP LOGing you
>/pol/ got Trump elected
If you honestly believe that, you have the IQ of oatmeal. /pol/ is one of countless strings the leaders of that movement pulls to make their puppets dance. /pol/ does not itself contain leaders.
Nah another anon likened them to furfags and they're right. You can't even have a thread about a video game, a thread about tits or a thread about what kind of cake you like without some /pol/ furfag coming in and shitting everywhere. What the fuck does black people's high crime rates per capita or Donald Trump have to do with a tits thread on /gif/? for example.
We don't give a fuck that they're offensive, we're all 1 click away from seeing chicks with 3 dicks fucking amputees here on this site.
The problem with them is, like furries and ponyfags, they need to put politics into everything, won't shut up about it and let their whole lives revolve around it.
Log is just the same as the YLYL Banana. It's a meme that other websites can't take or use. I'd rather put up with 1 log thread on the catalogue than the 15-20 threads that belong on /soc/ and /s/.
>Left or right?
>Girls from *insert overly specific location* (always 5 or more of these threads up)
all shit already on other boards that should be moved or pruned. 4chan's had no moderation since Moot sold the website is all it is
I don't justify the shit you're
because I've filtered those threads.
Earlier you said log threads were more memorable than this thread. Earlier, you were praising log threads and giving them a pass. Then you admitted to frequenting log threads by telling us you're usually the one tarding off on them and giving them undue attention, making them memorable for a really retarded reason.
Logposting isn't the same. I've seen many good threads get killed by unrepentant logposters, with nothing good coming from the log meme itself. It didn't cultivate anything, and for the two or so years that it's been here, it hasn't fixed anything. At least the YLYL Banana was a product of a time where people actually created OC for it regularly, especially because YLYL threads were becoming a regular thing. Back when comedic timing actually meant something. When people actually posted Spiderman collectively. There was a fucking punchline to YLYL Banana. It served its purpose, it made its rounds, it made me laugh. Stupid shit jokes and autistic spamming and autistic spamming of discords doesn't compare.
yes yes, /b/ was never good, supposedly it had some interesting and oh so hilarious moments, but guess what - so has every other site in existence while it was still a cool treehouse club. this was bound to happen eventually. nothing would have stopped 4chan becoming mainstream and attracting a bigger audience, especially if it starts showing up in media.
everyone crying about muh /b/ is a hipster who can't move on from the fact that a pool of green shit now has less green and more yellow shit in it.
doesn't matter how you look at it - it's still shit. the sooner you move on, the better.
you're not entitled to OC, and complaining about lack thereof won't magically conjure it or eradicate the facebook sheep or phoneposters.
Yeah. Oldfag here as well. Was lurking back in 07 when I was still an underage b&. Seen it go through its phases. The raids kinda stopped because there was too much traffic to actually organize much. Lulz were had. I still lurk for the OC. Regardless of the fact that everything is a meme, I see people posting shit on facebook that was on ylyl threads 5 fucking years ago.
The site is still entertaining. The nature of that entertainment just had a drastic shift. Just gotta adapt.
Aside from people shitposting bananas, ylyl threads still manage to get a laugh out of me sometimes. Otherwise I just browse /x/ for the entertainment value or /wg/ when I wanna find a good wallpaper. /b/ isn't what it once was, but neither is the internet in general. Our culture became nihilistic as fuck and then nothing really mattered. The entirety of the fucking web is a stream of shitposting and irrelevance. Its seeped into every day life. The modern world and the social climate of it is nothing short of absurd.
So lurk if you want. Or not. Fuck it.
I joined /b/ about well, 3 years ago? Back then it was still a little good on here but now its just fucking lame. I joined /b/ because i liked how fucked it was years aho but sadly i was too late.
Good threads still happen, but thats like once a fucking year.
And fucking Gook moot jusst made it even worse. We cant even raid anymore.
