It's fucking confirmed at this point. /pol/ are anime posting crossposters. Deleting /pol/ is the best way to keep anime shitposting from leaking from /a/.
Hiro, you know what you need to do. Delete /pol/ and cure 4chan of its two biggest cancers.
>declining for years
It's been declining since basically day 1. At first there was only /a/ but off topic non-weeb posts quickly made the majority of the board thus moot created /b/ and weebs have been a shrinking minority ever since.
I'd agree with you, up until the last year or so.
If anything, I've seen quite the reverse recently.
Both /tv/ and /k/ have frequent anime related or anime-ish threads, whilst in the last couple of years that was fairly non-existent.
How many threads calling for the deletion of one of the biggest boards do we have now?? PermaBan OP please.
You miss understand me.
anime has always been part of /k/, but it hasn't been at the forefront for a long time. Very sporadic.
But now there's almost always an /ak/ or animeish post on the board.
And I think I've seen the moderation reflect that, there was always person(s) trying to shit up the thread with saying 'go back to >>>/a/ ', compared to how it was, it practically never happens and when it does I see those posts getting removed or whoever is doing it magically stops mid-argument.
>Both /tv/ and /k/ have frequent anime related or anime-ish threads
That's done by raiding weebs, protected by the weeb mods.
The weeaboos are getting nervous about losing influence on 4chan, so they try to force themselves on various boards. "Look we're still relevant"
Also, it might be because /a/ is so autistic that it's not possible to discuss dbz there.
>/new/ is libertarian college students who like making racist jokes, but are mostly open-minded IRL, supporting gay marriage and equal rights for women
>Supported Ron Paul because he was an anti-establishment candidate
>/pol/ is full of skinhead Republicans who watch Fox News, fuck their cousins, wear sunglasses and a cowboy hat, have a gun rack with a gun rack on it, have a Confederate flag on their car, want Jews to be gassed, and enjoy shooting niggers for target practice
>Supports Trump, the complete opposite of anti-establishment
What went right/wrong?
Do they have a single fact to back up their claims?
Otherwise my claim is true too
All homosexuals are pedophiles
never believe western media
RT only speak of true
THE JEWISH INTERNET DEFENSE FORCE (JIDF) IS INVADING /qa/ TO CONVINCE HIRO AND EVERYONE ELSE TO DELETE /pol/
DO NOT FALL FOR THEIR JEWERY.
THE NEW INFLUX OF MAJOR CHANGES TO THE SITE HAS ATTRACTED THE JIDF TO ERADITCATE ANY OPPOSING VIEWS
DON'T GIVE IN TO THE JEWS
Who are you trying to kid?
/new/ and before that /n/ got deleted for being /stormfront/
There's even an old /co/ comic about it
You can't stop weeb shitposting from other boards. Mods don't do their job, so there's basically nothing you can do.
Every board has become consistently worse due to rampant weeb shitposting from all fronts. This is what happens when permavirgins with no responsibilities are given all day every day to ruin this site.
Is this It? This the place where the anime raids all over /pol/ are coming from? Fucling stop. Keep to your containment boards you utter subhuman weaboos
Only underage get upset over people being into some thing they're not into, I don't go around complaining about /fit/ or /tv/ memes which have spread all over the place.
It's not an issue of whether their memes are shit or not (they are), you just don't like them which is why you are called out for being from plebbit. Trying to call for a ban because people are posting things you don't like is extremely fucking childish, and not in the cute way either.
That and I'll remind you again, not because it's a meme but because its a fact: This is an anime website first and foremost. 95% of complaints are only a result of being called out for being dumb by somebody using an anime reaction image (not avatar faggotry). This is what the SJWs are doing and I thought 4chan was full of people who hate SJWs.
>This is an anime website first and foremost.
No, it isn't, and it hasn't been for over a decade.
See exactly here this is a meme response, no it didn't change because a bunch of normal people who didn't respect this place came to shit everything up.
-chan is in the site title. If you don't like it fuck off to one of the other shitty mainstream websites where you can circlejerk about how much you hate this place.
>conflating anime haters with SJWs
This is always going to be an anime imageboard, and I hate feminist cunts as much as anybody, but a lot of /pol/ is just a bunch of edgy faggots from stormfront who came over here because they heard "its totally a totally anonymous free speech zone where you can redpill and spread the white man's message dude".
A lot of them are just old white trash borderline normalfaggots who consider anime "degenerate"
/pol/ has no place on this website desu and is only going to get this website v&
People trying to ban anime are being like SJWs, being indifferent is fine.
I don't have a problem with /pol/, I've been in the 'is anime degenerate' threads and I've been saying this for a while but the whole degeneracy thing is the same as SJWs bitching about the Patriarchy so I can't really take it seriously.
Plus there is the whole TrumpAnime thing currently going on which I am guessing is what OP is getting so upset over.
It's weird how /pol/'s tastes don't really fit the popular image of them
I was expecting gay shit at the top.
