There were more SFW cam girl threads, stream raids, and cringy anime RP threads back then. And we had threads where people just posted memes they made. Caturday and all that before the whole original meme format went stale.
There were porn threads too but there was way more variety, and a lot of the porn was shock stuff that NO ONE was actually jerking off to. And don't even talk about those lunatics who got butthurt about being banned and would spam CP to get back at the mods. Dumbasses.
