I've been here a long while (2011 is the earliest I remember visiting.)
I know 4chans reputation is edgy and people come here to act like complete shit heads normally, but is it just me or are more people than their used to be acting like complete sociopaths? I'm not saying I want 4chan to coddle people or be softer, hell I like the take no nonsense attitude it normally has, but I feel like I'm noticing more of the unpleasant asshole kind of behaviour instead of the good ol' fashioned 4chan asshole behavior.
anyone else echo the sentiment?
been here since 2006 sporadically.
it's backlash against web2.0, I'd sound absolutely insane if I tried to explain it and you'd tell me to fuck off back to /x/ but it's essentially a certain group of people that are disillusioned with what the internet has become as of late, probably started browsing around 2008-2011, witnessed the last days of 'old /b/' and have spent the rest of their time here trying to recapture that hostility.
A certain percentage of any population is going to be natural assholes. I don't think 4chan attracts more than normal, at least not compared to what one would find on facebook or youtube or twitter.
Unless Asians or edgy Americans are posting, /pol/ has the brash attitude of the good old days. If you aren't a shitposter, you will get along fine with everyone, but if you are, get shat on mate.
>We actually care about the shit we talk abou
i know, that's why it's not the same. /pol/ is fun but by no means does it have the same attitude as 'the good ol days' don't pretend it does.
>Only when we were serious did we get any really stupid shit done outside of the site.
Doing things is one of the very fucking reasons this site is going to shit. Activism isn't needed and should fuck off

Holy shit fuck off with your overused unimaginative shitty fucking memes. The same utter wank posted in every single thread, do you think you're being clever? Funny? No you're just pathetic. Kill yourself. No, don't reply. Don't act like you've goaded me into being epicly rused, just kill yourself. Do it now. Painfully.
it's flanderization, but on 4chan. They probably see 4chan as an epic hate machine and think getting people to kill themselves (or other shitty behavior) is funny, so they gravitate here.
