How did /r9k/ become what it is today?
How did a merely technical gimmick spawn the culture that is associated with /r9k/ (i.e "misogynistic virgins blablabla...")

Stay a while and listen as I share the tale of /r9k/'s demise with you.

Initially /r9k/ flourished in an era of fresh OC and greentext, which quickly became its primary use, that and tripfag circlejerks.
Then, one fateful day, some anon posted a "feel" thread. It was a very innocent little thread, about things that made you feel different ways. They were positive threads with positive feels, such as ">that feel when walking into a coffee shop and inhaling" or ">that feel when waking up on a cold morning and snuggling in a warm blanket"
It is important to note that this era also marked the decisive transition in the meaning of >tfw (from >their faces when, to >that feel when)
What followed was a rise in >tfw threads which focused on the comfy aspect of feels and continued to slip away from the initial varied >tfw threads into far more specific threads. So you had >comfy feels and >work feels among many many others.
And then it happened. Some tremendous boy-molesting fruit, the absolute fucking lala homo-man, posted ">tfw no gf" and this devolved into the absolute worst circlejerk in which tears were used in place of lube.

tl;dr: Feelfags accidentally the whole /r9k/

A long time ago I made a set of gifs for /r9k/, just after the robot was removed.

The pacing's a little bad. I was literally drawing them as I was posting them, rather than spending a lot of time making them and then posting them all at once.

But I didn't get why feelbots can't love

Because they're robots.

It's metaphorical.

It actually started in Germany apparently. I swear, Germans should just be banned from the internet.
