Asian Moot, why the fuck would you get rid of the wordfilter on "cuck?" It's a stupid fucking word used exclusively by newfags.
Bring back the wordfilter, but change it so that it filters to "stud." And also wordfilter "meme" to "smurf."
They pretended to be from /pol/ but actual /pol/lacks were in the thread calling them out.
I don't even know what site archives /qa/ or else I'd find the thread. It was just a little over a month ago.
>I thought it was /pol/ after showing hiro this vid and convincing him that it was a 4chan meme become mainstream and fairly significant.
Holy fuck where do you children get this crap from? The cuck meme started on /tv/ then leaked to /pol/, then gaymergaters started calling moot that and took it to 8gag after moot stuck back, where Milo the Faggot Clickbait Jew found it, wrote a bunch of clickbait about it, and spread it around twitter crediting 8gag 'the home of gamergate' for it.
The only reason Peggy Noonan used the word on television is because some right wing hack peer of Milo's on some blog called Jeb Bush that. It has very little if anything to do with 4chan.
Wordfilters are just pointless since rather than just seeing the words normally and letting them die out like normal, people know it pisses the mods off and continue to do it more, and then we have to see a million variations of whatever is filtered. Like when Jew was filtered on /int/ all we did was see J3w, jews, Joo, j00, etc.
It doesn't work because frankly nobody gives a shit. If people want to say it they'll find a way to go around the filter and post it anyway. And given the people dumb enough to use such memes are retards with nothing but time to shitpost, it deters nobody. It dies naturally on its own like every other fad. And all it did was spawn the baka desu senpai shit alongside the tons of variations of those acronyms. Good job, you made it worse than before.
Even illegal shit like the fappening pictures still get posted to /b/. Why? Because they'll just edit the image so it doesn't get hit by the DMCA claim and do it anyway. They'll proxy up and post it, or just post it and if they get banned just unplug their router and come right back in 5 minutes. So, it's not that anyone's against funny filtering of words, it's just that the current filters are to prevent people from saying shit and just makes them say it more and in even dumber variations making it even shittier to look at and more annoying than if you just ignored them and let things run their course.
It sounds like someone completely missed the point of the word filters. Hint, they aren't for curbing shitposting, they are for fun, mainly pissing off the certain group you are filtering. The current word filters exist not to curb anything, but to piss off the people who use those words, which it did. The decrease of the usage of those words was just a side effect.
>They'll proxy up and post it, or just post it and if they get banned just unplug their router and come right back in 5 minutes.
This leaves only the people who are super autistic and really, really, really, really want to tell people to baka desu senpai, to the point where they will greatly inconvenience themselves for it.
Most people posting baka desu senpai are not these people. They're tacking it onto a post that doesn't really need it and it's simply easier to excise the offending word than go on a stupid crusade.
The Cuck is immunized against all dangers: one may call him a scoundrel, parasite, swindler, beta, it all runs off him like cum off his wife. But call him a Cuck and you will be astonished at how he recoils, how injured he is, how he suddenly shrinks back: “I’ve been found out.”
It didn't lead to a decrease. It decreased on its own over time naturally like every other dumb fad. It didn't even piss them off. SmH TbH FaM
See? Easy as fuck to do it. And while that may have been curbed, it sure lead to a fucking huge rise in baka desu senpai which is just as annoying to read. So, it didn't stop people from saying it, they just made it say something different if people didn't feel like just working around the filter.
>It didn't even piss them off
Someone wasn't here for Halloween. Also, baka desu senpai isn't even annoying and is good. It's actually a good change as it pisses off the anti-anime fags.
>SmH TbH FaM
People rarely if ever actually write these out. People used the lowercase versions all the time. There aren't nearly as many baku desu senpais as what they replaced.
>It decreased on its own over time naturally like every other dumb fad.
Do you have any trend numbers? I'm pretty sure they're still going strong on other parts of the internet.
It's weird to me that he was convinced so easily to remove it. I think the problem was more that somebody did it behind his back and he wasn't happy about that.
It's annoying because people started using cuck more than ever after the filter was removed, as if to make up for lost time.
/pol/ said that it was used in legitimate, mainstream political speech and that we were basically banning discussion of the "cuckservative" phenomenon.
hiro, sensing a free speech issue, bought this argument (to everyone else's everlasting detriment). Technically it is, in the sense that if 4chan were held to the same standard as the government a court ruling would strike it down as suppressing political speech... but that's a fucking atrocious standard to actually use.
>It didn't even piss them off.
yes holy fuck it did. and the wordfilter being instated coincided almost exactly with when it started to decrease, and before that it kept on being used more and more on every fucking corner of this site, spreading from /int/ and /sp/ to /tv/ and /mu/ to /lit/ and /fa/ to even goddamn /a/ and /out/. c'mon man
You don't like the term cuck because it has pro monogamy and anti racial miscegenation undertones which trigger you. If leftist faggots didn't want cuck to become a meme, they shouldn't have spammed cuckolding porn on /new/ /pol/ and /r9k/ for fucking years. Sorry that the handy work of your comrades backfired on you :^)
The issue it was hampering actual political discussion because linking to articles reporting on the rise of the "cuck" slur would lead to the link being wordfiltered, and therefore broken. I don't think anyone thought that it was a free speech issue apart from redditors and 8gaggers, but it had gone on long enough and people were bored of it. Conversely, those so vehemently opposed to the cuck meme seem to have a fatwa against /pol/ and right wing thought in general. They're the kind of person who will unironically say things like "goobergator" and "muh freeze peach".
I told you that cucks don't like to be called out for what they are.
They are leftist, left-wing, gamerghazi rallying, reddit-browsing, fedora-wearing, statist bootlicking, pseudo intellectual, cultural marxist, emasculated, self-hating, pathetic, jealous, bitter cucks.
These people just don't know when to stop. These people are the worst posters on 4chan other than tripfags
Cuck needs to be added back to the word filter, and it needs to stay, it offers absolutely nothing but shitposting and is just pure reddit. Same with niggerposting, if the niggertwitter shit from reddit wasn't popular we wouldn't have to worry about it, yet here we are, with the filters. BLACKED also needs to be added, its literally shitposting and advertising. You don't go to a video game/television board to discuss wanting to see your favorite character/actress star in some fetishist garbage, it offers nothing of value.
