Greatest Lolcow factory -

Large

kiwifarms.net
Trains are really quite a tard magnet, the world over. I hear there are some pretty serious train spergs in japan too but I'd expect no less from glurrius nippon.
There's an exceptional fellow who pops up at Panera in my town from time to time and puts on train themed puppet shows in the seating area. He's even got models of different trains that he lays out on the table around him.

A lolcow factory is a locations or communities that has a tendency to produce lolcows. In my opinion one of the greatest lolcow factories is of course youtube (exhibit a: the entire "internet famous section")

In case you've never seen it before, Train Simulator on Steam has been notorious for years for having a ridiculous amount of expensive DLC, because train spergs.
Go ahead, check out the Steam page and click "See all" under the DLC, scroll to the bottom, and look at the "Add all DLC to cart" price.

Speds and lolcows are different. For me, events that have been the biggest lolcow factories have been the battles between nerds and SJWs - Gamergate, Comicsgate, Weeb Wars, all have produced numerous cows on both sides.

Tumblr is a haven for them, and certainly encourages lolcalves into lolcowdom, but it also is a lot of stupid teenagers that will grow out of it. Troon activists are almost all lolcows, as the Rat King amply demonstrates, but that's because troons are lolcows, and the activists (well, 'activists') are the loudest of them. Twitter doesn't so much produce lolcows as allow them to thrive and spread their toxicity.

I'd say the best incubators or factories, though, are hugbox forums like ResetEra, PULL, Metafilter, Something Awful, certain subreddits and fan forums where the extermination of wrongthink leads to an expotential explosion of exceptionalism. They're inevitably focussed on the extreme sides of the political spectrum (though the ones I've listed are all heavily identitarian), they steadily shed their normal members, and they end up with concentrated autists who simultaneously think they're the part of the best forum there is that is also completely corrupted by whatever groups they regard as their nemeses.

The most prominent users and moderators of these places either start as lolcows, or become so as the hugbox tightens and they don't escape because they need to keep up. They also inevitably advocate more and more violence over whatever angers them, from politics to a computer game to the colour of a Pokemon, while staying safely hidden behind their keyboard. It's how you get death threats over headcanons and discussion of bombing entire states for safety.

Lots of anime and TV communities are full of them - with Steven Universe standing out in the latter case (hounding someone to near-suicide and getting the actual creator of the show telling you to stfu, all because you thought their fanart of a character made them too thin, is a high bar for a community as a whole to jump).

When I was a younger lad I lived in a small town that was covered in train tracks because all the trains from the county passed through it for some reason or another. They were all over the place all the time and tards would gather around from everywhere in this spot across the street from our house that was apparently some sort of train park, which is to say there's a bench right by the tracks and a sign marking it as a park. Whenever trains would come through they'd stare at them like they found god and take pictures and videos like they're journalists archiving a tragedy.

trumps campaign and entire time in office. I've never seen one man upset so many different people across the entire political and economic spectrum. though I guess it would be fair to say that none of this would have been possible without the internet.
so my real answer is the internet. I mean, did lolcows even exist before mass communication? only ones I can really think of were cult leaders and authors, and I'd argue those kinds of people were pretty rare considering you needed at least some kind of skill in order to influence others.

Considering the criterias to be a lolcow state that they need to be shameless public figures, I don't think anyone outside of royalty could have been eligible. If someone in a community started being an obnoxious idiot, nobody outside of the community would likely ever hear about it, and they'd be much more likely to get their ass kicked than they would today.

Gaiaonline. It's dying, but still houses whiny naysayers that cling to the site.

GameFAQs forums. Mainly Pokemon and Smash boards.

  • Media/Franchise Fandoms
  • Political Communities/Activism
  • Sex/Fetish communities (would count things like Incels in here)
  • Celebrities (including regular and e-celeb)
Probably 90% of cows/cow heavy communities will be this or some kind of hybrid.

Some places that surprisingly lack cows (or just go unnoticed)
  • Religious groups
  • Music Scenes
  • Sports/Sports Fans
  • Active and DIY Hobbys (though someone did bring up trains earlier)

Anywhere where fandoms fester - especially Tumblr, Reddit, Amino, YouTube, 4/8/whatever-chan, Twitter, Facebook, you name it - they're everywhere - LOLs are forever; well, when they actually are, of course.

Even this actually fucking awesome place; this place is actually fucking awesome because this place is not as awful to be on as any of those examples, however.

I'm surprised this thread has gone on for this long without even a passing mention of Channel Awesome.

The "TGWTG" tag doesn't exist in this board for no reason--seriously, I swear everyone who has been involved in that fucking shitshow of a site (except for maybe Brad Jones) has gone full lolcow in one way or another. Even people like Latza who tried and failed to set foot there has (or at least once had) a bit of the 'tism in them.

I mean, fuck, people used to think MarzGurl was too boring to be a cow and here we are now (hey, that rhymed).
