Who/What groups would like to see 4chan fail?
Most people within the regular userbase seem to hate this website with a passion. I'm beginning to believe that the mods and janitors might be this way as well. It really shows when they say "[board] is bad anyway." or when they say nothing about this website should change.
>experience extended anguish
That's life, you're always feeling that. You're only looking for things to distract you from it. The funny thing for me, is that I actually try to enjoy this website. It's the people shitposting to distract them from life that make me upset. It's a ball of disappointment and despair for pretty much everyone involved. At least I took some ibuprofen a little while ago. It helps. I'm now afraid I'll start using this stuff more than I should.
>still think of /b/ as 'dangerous'
It's hilarious when people think that. The only way /b/ could be dangerous is to very stupid people that actually try to make home made crystals. Then again, many people that actually use /b/ are quite stupid.
