"Reddit is where stupid people go to act smart. 4chan is where smart people go to act stupid." - Anon
It's adorable how superior some tripfags feel.
Browsing a particular website contributes to your own identity? If all you have to hold onto is that you browse a better forum than others then you have no right to feel superior over anything, ever.
I think it's more how people on Reddit seem to think they're of higher intelligence when they're all fucking retarded. And 4chan is fucking retarded and understands that embraces it even
I think you should start browsing reddit instead of here. We aren't worthy of your superiority, O mighty one
I know that if you derive superiority over browsing this shit hole, you're misguided.
I'm not debating what website is better, more so that you're a fool if you believe you're superior to others simply because you browse 4chan.
Seriously /r9k/ is at an all time low, and had been for awhile. Taking pride in contributing to this shithole is retarded.
You're showing how much of a newfuck you are by thinking newfuck archives are relevant. That archive only dates back what, a year? No shit my posts are negative, r9k has gotten fucked by newfags like yourself ever since they removed the robot.
It's more of the fact that we're are not apart of the psudo intellectual circle jerk bullshit. We're retards and we understand that. Also I don't think he meant that we are better then Reddit just that Reddit is shit.
at least people on 4chan freely express how they feel and give opinion not fabricated by their own desire for acceptance and fake internet points. /r9k/ is better than every reddit sub. Do you feel you're superior, because you tell people they're a fool for having an opinion ?
I agree with this, although there are plenty of stupid people on 4chan and smart people on reddit. More often than not, though, they are the exceptions that prove the rule.
I think the intellectual freedom of 4chan appeals to a certain freethinking type, and the comforting structure of reddit attracts people who aren't really interested in chaos, but who are sometimes experts and adept critical thinkers. Your stupid 4channer is a shitposter, whereas your average stupid redditor is an IT guy who thinks he's smart like bill nye. It just depends on which you prefer filtering out.
doesn't really work though, anything said that isn't absolute in line with current 4chan is labelled reddit and sjw, you might as well be trolling saying anything out of line like that since it gets the same reaction.
>everyone replies to OP with some dumb comment saying that he's wrong
OP is a genius.
It's more like this:
>Reddit is where stupid people go to act smart
>4chan is where stupid people go to be themselves
This explains why there's undeniably a significant overlap in the demographic.
Forgot the robot doesn't allow textless posts lol. For some reason I've only ever been muted for 2 seconds though?
Not him, but I could agree with that. Excluding edgy kids on /b/ or something, most people here may be frustrated or something, but are good on the inside. They're just hostile on the outside due to bullying or being ignored or something. Not their fault.
If you consider yourself smart in any context while posting something to 4chan, you are likely worse off than most people who use reddit. That's not saying there aren't smart people here, but you might as well be arguing about how sophisticated my little pony fans are.
>Not their fault.
Don't try and pull that shit. There are plenty of people that have had much worse lives than they have and turned out better. I'm not saying that people can't complain about their lives just because others have had it worse because in the end bad is relative. But even though you don't have a choice about your situation, unless you're gonna deny free will completely in which case good and bad become meaningless anyway, you always have a choice to be good or bad and to act positively or negatively.
>in which case good and bad become meaningless anyway
Do they really? Ugly and beautiful aren't meaningless and those are qualities largely affected by birth. Do you not call a freakshow tier person ugly just because they have no choice in the matter? Whose to say behavior isn't an innate quality.
And whose fault is that? let's be honest
If we don't choose anything, then good doesn't matter and bad doesn't matter. If everything is reduced to pure determinism, then our analysis of good and bad is predetermined. And your respond to my assertion is predetermined. So whether or not you agree with me, you're not really agreeing with me, because it was bound to happen based on the chain of causality. Ugly has no real meaning because we were going to define ugly as ugly no matter what. There was no way for ugly to turn out as anything other than ugly, so our distaste for it is pointless as it had to be that way. I'm not saying the word itself has no meaning, but passing any sort of judgment, even about attractiveness, has no real meaning because you're not judging it. There's no real reason to think about considering any of the choices presented to you because they were only going to be presented to you in that specific way and based on the way it was presented you were only going to choose one specific way.
And even if you disagree with me, you're only disagreeing with me because you had to. And if you agree with me, you're only agreeing with me because you had to. Can you really give yourself credit for doing something you had to do? Not without abandoning the idea of a personal "self", in which case our entire discussion has been pointless from the get-go since there's been no "person" to call good or bad,
>If everything is reduced to pure determinism, then our analysis of good and bad is predetermined
Good and evil, like ugly and beautiful, become qualities of a person like height or sex. So long as there's cause and effect there's no strong reason to believe in free will.
>Ugly has no real meaning because we were going to define ugly as ugly no matter what
It means something to our frame of reference which is the only one we can experience, we can't step outside and determine without a doubt that free will does or doesn't exist. Knowing something is meaningless might do little to stop you from experiencing meaning from it, where we ascribe or experience meaning is a good judge of our values whether they're innate or chosen and it's likely they're innate. You could tell yourself it's all meaningless since people lack agency but I don't think it'd stop you from experiencing feelings just like circus freaks are unattractive even when you know they're born that way.
>Can you really give yourself credit for doing something you had to do? Not without abandoning the idea of a personal "self"
It's an essential feature of what you are, you may not have the credit for it but you bear the responsibility for it like an ugly person who can't control the repulsion of others, being 'evil' is potentially repulsive whether or not you have free will.
> in which case our entire discussion has been pointless from the get-go since there's been no "person" to call good or bad,
Does a lack of free will make a person not real? A person would be a collection of identifiable features (human, tall, female, ugly, evil) they don't need agency to be identified any more than a rock or a book does.
I don't see the need to rule out that people may completely lack agency, people having agency means that somewhere somehow the mind defies cause and effect (all in a similar limited manner that allows us to have relatable human experience).
thats how it started out, the only problem is that legit smart people dont end up populating reddit because they can tell when they people are faking, but 4chan does end up populated by legit stupid people since they cant tell when people are faking
