I was likewise surprised at how difficult it was to create a fursona, or mascot, or furry character; whatever we want to call it. Obviously I had had exposure to the concept since I was very young, but never really was interested in making one, or in furry art in general. This changed when I decided I needed a new Twitter icon, but didn't want to just replace (´・ω・`) with a simple photo of myself. A friend of mine suggested a fursona, at first as a joke; but they are a furry, and soon we began seriously discussing the idea.

It appealed to me for a lot of reasons, but I also knew exactly what I was doing. Imageboard users, in general, hate furries. As an object of channer hate, it seemed only natural I take on more (harmless) attributes that draw their ire.

So we began our discussion. But I soon realized something fundamental about furries: the delta between the fursona and their true persona is very psychologically revealing. In many ways, we can say that the other side of the delta is an idealized body which their soul desires if it could have any body without work. Thus, you see many obese furries with muscular fursonas; they make little to no attempt to achieve such physique in reality, yet their idealized form has one.

My eyes are really green, but not as brightly as the mascot's, obviously. Truly, I found fursona creation vexing, if you want an autistic way to force introspection, perhaps give it a try! (Or just get some CBT.)

The species was chosen as I believe raccoons represent the ideal hackers of the world, finding their way around problems, finding their way into places that they're not supposed to be, and discovering things they're not supposed to know. They have high intelligence and dexterity, having hands, and are also somewhat sociable, but not to an extreme. Also, I found a funny meme of a raccoon sitting in a chair, so that pretty much sealed the deal.

Lastly the body type. Clearly it would be absurd for him to be very tall, but we could get away with a bit more height, so 4'1". And weight? Well, to make him very thin would make that an aspiration at some level, would it not? But that's not something I aspire to; in reality, being fat hides deformities and makes me look older; in the world of the raccoons, being fat means they live a well optimized live if you ask me. A thin raccoon probably isn't the smartest, the fat ones know all the tricks.

And that was it really. My friend advised me to go on FA and find someone with open commissions with an art style I liked; I did so and paid with Fiverr credits I got sent as a gift last year. Yes, they also draw some weird porn, but who in the world of furry art doesn't? That's where the big bucks are, is it not? So I can't fault the artist, can I?

The philosophy of fursonas is enough for several term papers, but I'll stop there. (I know my image for Hiroyuki is top cringe, I tried every other way I could think of of getting his attention, and as you all know, the respect of people like @HOMO FOR LIFE is not really important to me, so making such an image on the off chance it will work was well worth it.)
Whoa nigga, do you really expect me to read all that shit by you?

I can't believe this crusading shit's still going on. Some high-quality autism right here.

Also there will be board creation on 8kun, but this time boards will be reviewed by the 8kun staff.
I think its neat how @copypaste was recently saying 8chan err kun is dead in the water without board creation despite that being one of the main reasons he was claiming it's so dangerous. Yaknow I've got pages of notes on his inconsistencies. Maybe I should become an "aspiring journalist." Too bad there aren't any corporatist neolibs waiting to give me grant money for it...

Oh also I figured someone else would have posted this by now but our cp peddling white knight @L33TGUY is making the news! Wonder what Ctv would think if they knew his site hosted CSEM.

They should be told about that. Would make for a delicious headline.
Pfffft... as of they would care. Think about the massive amounts of grooming that goes on every day on major platforms. News media dont care though. Now three shootings connected to a Mongolian basketweaving forum THAT'S a story.

Pretty sure it's always been this way and that is how we get our skewed "history" from the ever biased reports of the powers that be.

That is very interesting, but could you elaborate on some other questions too?

I have noticed that a fair number of users here seem to be concerned that you will eventually turn on Kiwi Farms too, once it stops being useful to you. Is that concern justified?

Since your angle of attack to deplatform 8chan (writing complaints and getting other people to write complaints to hosting companies and domain registrars) is very similar to what forced Kiwi Farms to change datacenters a few months ago: Were you perhaps already involved with that?

And last but not least: Rumor has it that your harem of philippine ladyboys has turned against you and is now holding you hostage at gunpoint. Is there any truth to that?

That is another thing. I've heard him refer to Kiwi Farms as "basically a stalker forum" in interviews. Ok so if this site is a stalker forum basically and he is an active member basically does that mean that he is a stalker basically? Commutative property or something I dunno I suck at maths.

He's certainly stalking the pig farmer.

He's a nihilistic clout chaser who sold out what little he had in the way of principles for a bit of media attention. It's not a question of if, it's a question of when.

Oh also I figured someone else would have posted this by now but our cp peddling white knight @L33TGUY is making the news! Wonder what Ctv would think if they knew his site hosted CSEM.

Damn, poor @L33TGUY. The article is supposed to be about him, but they only spend a single section talking about him and his valiant quest to "prevent the next mass shooter" before they get back to talking about Brennan vs Watkins, Brennan vs Ron, Brennan's entire life story, what Brennan thinks of 8kun still being up, what Brennan thinks of QAnon, Brennan this, Brennan that...

Here's an archived version for posterity:

Some of the newer/more interesting tidbits:

“I started getting interested in 8chan in 2014 during the Gamergate controversy, I was interested in it as a phenomenon,” L33T GUY told CTVNews.ca in a telephone interview.
It's almost not a news article until they've mentioned it, right?

Five months later after the El Paso shooting, L33T GUY said he reached out to Brennan,
So L33TGUY was the one who got in touch with Brennan first? Interesting.

“We email their abuse department, explain that there have been terrorist manifestos on 8chan and list providers who have denied them service,” L33T GUY said, adding “we’re using 100 per cent legal methods” to take the site down.
This is also an interesting thing to stress. 🤔

“8chan is known for rampant neo-Nazism, swastikas all over the boards, holocaust denialism, this isn’t going to change,” L33T GUY said, explaining that his message to the service providers is simple: “you can be on the right or wrong side of this.”
✓ Shoehorned Gamergate mention
✓ "We're on the right side of history!"

“I am going to keep reporting on 8chan until they either find a way to stay online that is totally impervious to my reports, or they give up,” Brennan said.
Or you could do something else with your precious time?

For now, 8chan – now under its new moniker 8kun - remains online.
Yep! :heart-full:

The bowling ball shaped midget is, you have to admit, a lot more interesting than that tard.

This is interesting. Note Freddit's hatred of fundamental First Amendment jurisprudence:

“Watkins looks at the law differently than I do,” Brennan explained, alleging that Watkin's "favourite case" is Brandenburg versus Ohio, which is a Supreme Court ruling that "says basically that you need to be a direct, imminent threat for your speech to be illegal.”

Brennan said that Watkins interprets that case “very strictly,” unlike himself, who was “much more loose” about its implementation when he was 8chan’s administrator.
Any pro First Amendment person knows and cherishes this case.

Gotta love Brennan's dishonesty. He promoted revenge porn, he opposed Jim's decision to get rid of the /hebe/ board.

He only did anything about /baph/- a community which would, as he is now trying to do, attempt to kill people- because credit card details were being posted on there.

That nobody’s involvement in this whole drama is 100% a desperate cry for attention and e-fame. The best thing to do is purposely avoid mentioning him, because nothing causes more pain to those types of people than being left out of the picture.

Seen HW has been having a go at BitChute on Twitter for a while to day.
Haha, and apparently Black Pigeon Speaks has basically challenged him to a duel after he called him a misogynist, racist and anti-semite (go figure). What's funny is he basically told Ethan Ralph on Twitter that he kind of sensationalized a bit for clicks/to get published. Lol what a noob move, "journalists" aren't supposed to admit on Twitter that they don't really believe in what they say.

Like I said, he's definitely playing both sides. He has started trying to cozy up to Ralph, saw him like one of his tweets today or yesterday and looks like he'll possibly be doing the Killstream talking to Felix the Pigeon.

Seriously though, @copypaste you really need to work on your transparency game. You never answered my question as to when it was you stopped being a "build the wall" chanting, MAGA hat wearing member of the Goldwater. I mean, you call them fake news, but you also did multiple live streams and wrote an article for them. You really need to pick a lane, lil bro.
