Proof that everyone bitching about reddit is new
This is from 2006 - reddit wasn't very popular at all back then, and the boogeyman was Gaia
Not sure what your image has to do with disproving anything about Reddit, but you pretty much just posted the reason why /vp/ was created. Even though the board's existence is pointless nowadays.
Also if you've spent any reasonable amount of time in meta threads on /v/ and /a/, you'd know a good amount of today's "oldfags" came here from Gaia, so calling them a boogeyman is a bit disingenuous.
What in fuck is that cap supposed to say about anything? Why would reddit even be brought up in that context?
I don't think anyone was under the impression that it was an old thing; it essentially developed after the fappening and then came to a crescendo in the past year. Even as recent as 2014 /tv/ would call out '/r/movies false flagging' rather than the site as a whole
Jesus. Why was 4chan so bad back then? Everyone typed like a fucking lolcat. I am really glad we don't see posts like that anymore. Well, maybe they still type like that on /b/, I wouldn't know.
it just proves that 4chan has always had shitty unfunny posters, and that to call someone "reddit" for this type of posting is fallacious
And no, the early posters did not come from Gaia, they came from various places such as Something Awful, OtakuBooty, etc.
Gaia was always a boogeyman scapegoat, like ebaumsworld. Nobody actually came from those places. It was a joke that morons like you started to take seriously.

This actually touches the core of the problem we currently have: People simply don`t lurk anymore. Of course places like ED are to blame, but they at least give them some knowledge about the culture here. But you get more and more fags who came here after they read about some shit a few anons pulled and they think this is just 9gag, reddit or any other place on the internet with fewer rules and danker memes.
>And no, the early posters did not come from Gaia
Go check their archives. You will see mostly 4chan content that they stole.
>Gaia was always a boogeyman scapegoat, like ebaumsworld
Oh please, be fucking kidding. You're the first person that I've ever saw that defends ebaums. I can't take you serious now. You and anyone who really believes in the "ONLY A BOOGEYMAN XDD" thing are just like human rights activists. Both defend thieves.

Way to spot a newfag.
