4chan - the internet hate machine

  • Order for the new server will be going in ASAP. Performance will be rocky until then (rip).

No idea who they are other than supposedly friends of (original) moot but it seems to be considered a happening.
They did the soundtrack for the Scott Pilgrim game that no one can play anymore.

I often hear about lolcows trying to take down Kiwi Farms and ED, but I wonder about cows that tried to take down 4chan. After doing some research, this is what I found so far.

>On February 11, 2004 Something Awful user nubdestroyer reported the site to GoDaddy resulting in its flounce from 4chan(.)net to 4chan(.)org.

>On June 15, 2004 TheRowan, owner of HentaiKey and 5chan convinced PayPal to cut funds to 4chan due to his own rival site barely getting any traffic.

>On June 17, 2006 a group of anons crapflood the Zelda Guide Forums for fun, after which a member threatens to "hack" 4chan. This prompts their leader, known as "Captain Cornflake" (the name of his raid account on Zelda Guide Forums, he was anonymous on /b/) to post this information to /b/. Many Anonymous joined the raid following this post and crapflooded the forums nearly into oblivion during the night while the moderating team was asleep. As the moderators were surveying the carnage the next morning, one mod actually pleaded for /b/ to stop and said he would give them their own board to spam, which just increased the raid. The forums now require manual admin verification, which keeps out many legit users, resulting in an anon victory.

>On June 19, 2006 Yet another epic raid occurs, with /b/ destroying naruto-kun.com after a user there posted about their dislike of 4chan. Following a major porn flood after which the site admin threatened to sic the FCC on 4chan, one anon discovered a source code document hidden on the site containing the site's SQL database password (which Anon posted on /b/) as well as loads of unchecked MySQL injection vulnerabilities. Anonymous also discovered that the fucking dumbass's FTP had the same password as his MySQL database, following which tons of anons logged in to the FTP account and deleted everything, destroying the entire site, including premium accounts and the database, and bringing the site down for two days.

>On December 20, 2006 Hal Turner, a white supremacist talk show host from New Jersey, plans his final radio show due to lack of funding, in which he takes calls for three hours straight. However, a combined surprise raid from 4chan, 7chan, YTMND, Something Awful, and Bantown destroyed Hal's show, with 150 prank calls being made in three hours, with almost none of his real listeners being able to call in due to clogged lines. Hal then posts the phone numbers of the callers on his website (some of which were minors), sparking a huge outrage among /b/. Bantown then uncovered his personal information, including his real phone number, after which ~160 calls were made to his house. Hal gave in and removed the phone numbers from his site, but as we all know, Anonymous does not forgive.

>On April 28, 2007 4chan, 7chan, and especially 420chan combine forces to attack Subeta, a faggot role-playing website similar to Gaia who stole Longcat and turned him into an item for their faggoty site. When the chans complained, Subeta DDoSed 420chan, leaving it in ruins and sticking Kirtaner (420chan's owner) with a $6,000 server bill. The *chans then DDoS Subeta, which they find hard to do due to lack of effort, as well as Subeta's 2000 GB monthly bandwidth and lack of large images. Nevertheless, two major Subeta fansites were shut down permanently and Subeta was down for two days. Keith (Subeta's owner) eventually apologized and removed Longcat from his site after a long and bloody battle, at which many Anonymous rejoiced. On this same day, Encyclopedia Dramatica, one of /b/'s most famous recruiting posts, encountered a severe hard disk failure and does not return until June 8.

>On October 19, 2007 a number of users from Lulznet enter the 4chan IRC channel, demanding that it be moved from its current location on irc.rizon.net to irc.partyvan.org. Their request is not taken seriously and they are banned from the channel in short order. During the exchange, moot said “whatever, Im gonna go make soup”. Angered, Lulznet beings a DDoS attack against 4chan. The attack is relatively successful, with all of the 4chan servers’ timing out relatively quickly, in response moot simply plugs them out. Simultaneously, Encyclopedia Dramatica attacks Wikichan for the sake of it.

>On December 14, 2007 IDIDITFORTHELULZ.net obtains moot’s domain password, hereby taking control of 4chan by having CeLe, owner of Glexia.com, 4chan’s hosting, hand them over. CeLe was a good friend of DIDITFORTHELULZ’s admin, XyriX. Together with his team [Lulz] and his girlfriend Angyl they tried to make a “4chan for the people”. There is a recorded phone conversation where Angyl tries to get a fansign picture of a very angry moot in exchange for giving them the site back. Glexia suspended 4chan’s and teamdouche’s (Angyl’s former team) accounts after they Dox’d Angyl together with Anonymous Borg (Locutus_of_loli, actor in the Caturday Nap). Why they helped, its unknown. moot got the site back after he gave the ransom. I wonder where the pictures are.

>On July 21, 2008 three users from Raidchan, Pacifico, ViraL and f have the idea to start an imageboard civil war; their attempts fail as they were discovered, so they decide to go nuts and DDOS every major imageboard on the net.

>On September 20, 2008 /b/ attempts to DDOS and Raid Bill O’Reily, who was dissing the site at the time but they fail to incite any reaction.

>On July 27, 2009 Kimmo of AnonTalk used IP address spoofing combined with DDoSing and filing lots of false reports to cause major ISPs like AT&T, Comcast, and Cogent Communications to block access to 4chan after relentlessly spamming /b/.

>On July 19, 2010 Adrian Chen, covering the Jessi Slaughter events made an article called “The Art of Trolling: Inside a 4chan Smear Campaign.” After outlining 4chan’s plan of attack against Dahvie Vanity with screenshots and links, Chen linked to a chatroom, daring readers to troll it. Enraged, /b/ set out to take down Gawker’s main servers around noon on July 19th. When the site did not go down, an attack against Adrian Chen was launched. Gawker posted an article detailing the entire plot, stating that they were not afraid.

>On July 21 - 23rd, 2010 /b/ is told that Jessi Slaughter will appear on Good Morning America! the following day. /b/ panics, factions rise, one wanting to spam /b/ to keep off potential newfags and one wanting to make /b/ the complete opposite of what will be reported on the TV. The later faction won. Operation /b/ipolar begins. On the second day, /b/'s rules change, along with embedded music and a new sticky thread in "honor" of, ABC's Good Morning Coverage of Jessi Slaughter. /b/ was ready to for the income of new users thanks to Operation /b/ipolar, but in the end it never happened, Jessi wizens up and doesn’t mention 4chan. In the end, Good Morning America! did mention 4chan in the night shift airing, causing /b/ to panic again. But before it could re-start Operation /b/ipolar, a massive wave of spam crashes /b/. /b/tards flee to /a/ and later /x/, who welcomes them with open, ghostly arms.

>On November 14, 2010 A butthurt Tumblr user makes a request of invasion on /b/, but is shunned off by most as it was a personal army request. Still it garnered enough users to catch the attention of the Tumblr user’s that browsed 4chan. It prompted them to start Operation Overkitten, flooding /b/ with actual pictures of kittens and the phrase “What is air” . In response, /b/ attempts to DDOS Tumblr but fails, only taking the front page down. Tumblr declares victory and eventually, in the victory flood of /b/, a somewhat clear-headed user of /b/ proposes that, since 4chan is predominantly male, and Tumblr is predominantly female, should have sex with each other. Thus, 4chumblr is born, and a surprising amount of Tumblr girls began to post pics of themselves in you love you lose and tits threads.

>On October 22, 2013 the website known as 8chan, is created, they become sworn rivals of 4chan, and call them "halfchan".

>On October 1 & 7, 2014 8chan raids /b/. The raid lasts five minutes before it's pruned away due to /b/'s speed. Hilarity ensues. People complain on 8chan about their permanent bans from 4chan, which really makes no sense since they said the raid would've been their last visit to 4chan in the first point. Then on October 7, 8chan raids /b/ again, this time by regarding any post ending in 8 as a get. Somewhat more effective than the last raid.

Thanks for writing this all up! It was a good read.

What ever happened to Kimmo Alm anyway? I remember encountering that shit way back in the day and laughing my ass off at what an utter weirdo and degenerate he was.

I haven't opened a link to 4chan in five years and I plan to make that six.

Why is it in a terrible shape, in your opinion? I rarely go there except to check on /v/
-unapologetic redditors bringing in even more subhuman motherfuckers from even worse sites
-cope/seethe/dilate completely shutting down discussion
-it is now trivial to bypass bans, making it so insufferable faggots can plague threads in perpetuity
/v/ is probably a hotspot for that kind of shit.

I hate it when they bypass the ban to complain about the ban, drawing even more attention to them.

Even with as long as I've been away, I suspect that most of what I could say about that place back then is still true.

4chan is not bad because it attracts the mentally ill. It's bad because it attracts those who are both mentally ill and irresponsible in taking care of it. Just as an example, how much do you want to bet that 95% of the extreme political opinions thrown about on there are just projections of personal problems that are more concerned with fitting the world to insecurities? How many of them do you think can really step outside of their perspectives like Marcus Aurelius and build politically accommodating, pragmatic ideologies?

Most of them were so гetarded that it only mattered where on the political spectrum they were at when being a walking contradiction wasn't convenient to them. I've watched so many pseudo-hippies become fascists and tankies that it's not even funny. It's just sad. And that's why I try to moderate my internet consumption.
