All people suck

4chan: Anonymity allows for fully unrestricted creativity and expression of the human spirit, both its virtues and its grievances, allowing for quality content when coupled with time and pressure

Reddit: Sheltered circle-jerk central which leads to 5th-grader joke book material plus whatever they can take from 4chan, so long as nobody's feelings get hurt

tbh when I first came here I did not know how to use 4chan or find /b/ funny

that was in the early 2000's though

I just saved wallpapers from /wg/ and fapped to the adult boards. Also /b/ was fappable, but you get stuck trying to be horny but replying to some thread about how anybody that like something you don't like is a faggot

and that's how I became a /b/tard

/pol/ + [s4s] are what /b/ used to look like a couple years ago

A little. It brings in a lot of people who think that they're going to find "epic win" on /b/, and treat it like diving for treasure. Like a bunch of tourists getting upset at local customs

Every redditor i ever know in real life ruined memes for me.

And i shit you fucking not they wore fedoras. I shit you god damn not!!!! I can't express it!! There was literally a group of reddit fags who would come to school in suits wearing fedoras.

I learned Michael Jackson died on /b/..

posting fake celebrity deaths was prime troll material back then

A couple that stick out to me were >HIS NAME WAS JIMMY RUSTLES, god damn that was funny.

Let's see, F40PH friday, Age man or back when /b/tards spammed fur threads to death. It feels like something the new generation of /b/tards doesn't do, you know? Like the whole concept of fighting autism with more autism is too "/b/" for them. Me and some of the spidey fags are hold outs.

reddit: hiveminded circlejerk, like 4chan but filters out all the shit, default subreddits filled with the lowest common denominator, some decent subreddits, actual reasonable people

4chan: full of retarded trolls and 12 year olds who try way too hard to be cool and edgy, same tired memes, once you leave /b/ content gets way better, content not censored and allowed to say what people really want to say

Face it though, let's not pretend like reddit and 4chan users aren't the same fucking people
>>
>>549981484
There's lots of original content on other boards.

Also, the 1% of /b/ that is original content is more than most Internet "meme factories" produce.

As far as no restrictions, we all know that's bullshit. But it's still fewer restrictions than most Internet hugboxes.
>>
one thing I love about 4chan is that you go to 4chan, but you may very well end up in a camsite chatroom with other anons making fun of a landwhale

horrible I know, but you can really have a real good time, not just recreate the illusion of a good time
>>
4chan is mostly smart people pretending to be retarded
leddit is retarded people pretending to be smart
>>
Reddit's community is generally shit, but once you wipe the default subreddits and subscribe to shit that actually interests you it becomes a much more tolerable place.

While it's still not great, I visit certain niche subReddits like /r/rct purely for the subject matter, not the community.
>>
>>549985123
/r/futurology was interesting, but it's turning into /r/technology now that it's a default. Fuck the default bullshit, it ruins subreddits unless the mods run a fucking 1984-esque regime like /r/science.
>>
>>549985505
I think the whole r/technology thing was over the Tesla posts. As I recall, I think the reason they went censoring crazy was actually because people wouldn't stop posting about Tesla for some reason. Seriously, everyday was another post about Tesla and circle-jerking it to high heaven. Even though everyone got pissed at the mods and thought they were anti-tesla, it was really because shills from the company were just shilling really hard, so the mods had to ban it. That's the main issue with a voting system and karma. You'd think it cuts down on shitposting, but it really just encourages it

you're a fucking idiot if you think that is true.

there are smart and dumb people on both sites

you're on 4chan so you want to think that you are part of the smart people just playing dumb. There are plenty of complete fucking retards here and there are plenty of intelligent people on reddit.
>>
>>549987838
it's fucking copypasta from another thread a long ass time ago
>>
>>549987838
I'd agree there is a mix on both sites, but i think the humor of each site is actually geared for people of different levels of intelligence. Most of the smart people i know enjoy the darker/nonsensical humor thats easier to find on 4chan, rather than the OMG, reference to ____! type stuff on reddit.

I've been a 4chan frequent since 2005. I have this to say:

When I first stumbled upon 4chan, I was very confused. The layout was unintuitive, there were hundreds of inside jokes that I didn't understand, and every other thread was something relentlessly offensive--gore, harassment, or even CP every now and then.

Most people from the early years of 4chan can say that it was hard to get started. You couldn't figure out how to get to the rest of the threads, you couldn't find the content you were looking for, and you didn't know how replying and posting worked. Even when you found out how to post, you were abruptly sent back to the first page and forced to scour the board for your thread, and once you found it there were either comments ridiculing you or no comments at all.

There was a unique culture thriving here. What 4chan forced you to do was wade through piles of garbage that didn't make sense to you for months until you very slowly picked up the tricks and experience. This was what "lurk moar" was all about. Eventually you found out that putting "noko" in the email field would auto-find your post for you. You found out that your crumby content wasn't being bumped because people were "saging" you. You learned the diction. You learned how to Triforce and avoid the numerous wordfilters that were in place, because if you couldn't do these things, you were harassed by the other users and you would never get any genuine feedback on what you said.
