Do you really need to ask, OP? It's pretty obvious.
>A no topic / general board is created >Would be exactly like /b/ except you can't post the same exact text twice (and originally, you couldn't post the same exact picture twice either) >Because of that restriction, people do pure meme posting less often and instead write original arrangements of words >When people are prompted to write original arrangements of words, the most common method they will choose to do this is to write about their lives >Most of the people who use and post on this website are young, antisocial male adults >When young, antisocial male adults write about their lives, most of what they write is going to involve misogyny and depression >Therefore, most of /r9k/'s posts became about misogyny and depression >Furthermore, everyone who viewed and posted on this board eventually noticed most of the personal posts people were making had these themes of sadness and frustration at not being able to get a girlfriend >This self-awareness of a common theme prompted even more misogyny and depression based posts due to people either consciously or unconsciously trying to fit in with the natural emergent similarities of the posts already being created here

>>26217297 this is pretty spot on before captcha /b/ was mostly spam where as the robot had way better content. at some point there was a critical mass of robots and poltards when the original board got axed to try and get rid of them. i forgot how many months went by till /r9k/ 2.0 was born
>>26217131 If you want a real answer, it was a year or two after people stopped calling each other "gent" and started calling each other "robots"
Basically here's what happened:
>Moot creates /r9k/ with the original robot to enforce original content and nurture a new random board with quality as a distinguishing priority over /b/
>Bunch of people flock here. Green text is changed organically from quoting someone to the "short version" style format you know of today. People start posting "blox" text at the end of their posts to circumvent the robot
>About 6 months of quality posting goes by >Inherently slower board speed makes the place attract attention whores. >tripfags start avatar fagging and selfie fagging >the speshal girls putting pics of themselves in every post attract the incels >/soc/ is created, all the girls go there >The incels overwhelm the board with pity threads bitching about their lives and asking for advice >/adv/ is made to quarantine the cancer but ends up being a board for actual advice >incels stay here >i leave
