How did you discover 4chan?
Tell us your story.
>Be young me
>Be on IB that can't be named
>Get Big Brother´d
I come here outta boredom. Not because you stupid fucks have anything interesting to do or write anymore.
This place had always been shit, but there were times when it was interesting shit.
>some years back
> want to know how memes are created
>din't understend how it works
>2 years back start using
>this is the shitiest community im pround of /b/ part!!!
>just moved to new states
>no friends yet
>watched a lot of tv
>one day, local news story does a feature on 'Anonymous'
>wtf is this shit
>report talks about 4chan as a 'hackers paradise'
>being a teenage edgelord, 'this is cool, totally gonna ask it to be my personal army'
>totally weren't my personal army
>stayed for porn threads and general degeneracy
good times /b/ good times
I used to frequent ytmnd and people would constantly comment about how it was just /b/ with music. So I ended up here when it started to die. Probably 2005 or 2006? I can't really remember.
that story aired in 2007, you lying faggot.
>Be at mates place
>His brothers mate comes over
>He thinks I'm hilarious
>Tells me about /b/
>Check it out that night
>Didn't like the layout so I browsed for a couple minutes
>Come back the next day
>That was it
I honestly never would've known about chans in general if he didn't tell me.
Heard some OP posted nudes of a friend back in 03, came here. Still waiting.
>friend of mine photoshops my face onto a porn stars nude
>creates 200 post thread
>shows me as a joke
>jokes funny so I keep coming back
12 years later, and I've met my fiance on /soc/ and continue to frequent this place despite the cancer because I simply don't know how to function without an online punching bag. I keep trying to get dubs so I can leave, but I never do.
Except for now, obviously. Check em.
Worked with a guy in like 2008 whom I got along with real well and we had about the same sense of humor and he told me about it
>it was a nice summer afternoon
>wanted to be edgy
>mfw I like this place
>Play Runescape Private Servers with forums
>Friends on forums go on /b/ a lot
>Tell me go on but never click any links because I was too young
>Go on /b/ for years collecting big collections of porn and memes
>Still have all the folders
That was in 2008, and I'm 19 now.
>investigating illumenerti on internet
>find out about anonymous legion of hackers
>trace it back to weird site called 4chan
>fast forward 6 years
>seen/done too many things
>been regretting finding this site ever since
>Having a shitface
>Still not delivering sauce
Your bad for falling for the shit tier "we are legion hacktivist kek xD" meme. You are the cancer that ruined this place.
I can't remember how, all I know is I got here during mid 2006/2007.
When I was still watching anime with spanish subtitles, and then moved into superior english subs.
how does one normally gets here?
>see IHE created a video on some site called 4chan
>did some research
>got here to /b/ and I've been hooked since
>great exodus happened right after I got here
>18 now and still called a normie faggot
>parents get divorced, move states away with mom only who always at work
>start breaking into her liquor cabinet and getting drunk as fuck while she's working
>see a GIRUGAMESH meme on MySpace and some shitlord says he saw it here
>come to /b/ and laugh for hours a day just scrolling through the pages
It was fun then, but only because I was 16 and immature. /b/ was never good and it confuses me when people think it was. It was the same washed up shit then just more gore and less edgy faggots replaced by more autistic virgins.
I knew Limewire. It's where we all got music after Napster and Kazaa went down! Would search for the [email protected] and the PT. Don't know shareaza though. But I somehow found this site and then realized it was full of pizza and been here ever since
Now I'm 31 and married and still fappin away to the lolis lol
This unforgettable video
Somewhere around the time when sexist and racist jokes became hyper taboo and only anonymity could allow me to keep enjoying them. Glad to see that was only a small moment in time. Trump drop kicked the political pendulum
>used to browse ED for funny drama shit
>Sandy Hook happens
>see what funny shit ED would say about it, nothing.jpeg
>Knew that ED got a lot of shit from 4chan from what I've heard
>go to /pol/ to read the hilarious insensitive and terrible things they would say about it
>was not dissapointed
>stuck around, accidentally got redpilled as fuck
>tl:dr, came for the lulz, stayed for the happenings
I'm too afraid to go searching for it. Trying to kick the habit, don't wanna fuck over wife and kids lol
yeahhhhhh that was limewire - but damn the real HC stuff on there was amazing as a youngin
You could tell she was an experienced rider.
>hear about crazy naughty stuff from a place called 4chan on gamefaqs and luelinks
>visit once and a while
>wow awesome, but feel bad for visiting, don't know how it works exactly
Now for the past 5 years it's my primary site. Fuck everything else.
>created that meme
And you faggots never stopped to realize that it was a JOKE. No one ACTUALLY agreed on anything, and to think we could form a united front and call ourselves "legion xD" was the punchline.
WHEN the "meme" was created, we made fun of it constantly. No one took any of that shit seriously
>except the mainstream media reporting on this website
>and drawing faggots who thought we were serious here from reddit
From a fellow /b/rother to other, don't.
Did you stopped fapping because you got sex? Fuck no. Same goes for pizza, but you can't act on it so you gotta get it out your system some other way.
OK - creep-out story winner:
Caught my 13 yo daughter on it. Found topless pics she was going to post (or already did). Banned her from this nasty site. Started monitoring. Got addicted to you sick fucks.
Bill Oreally said 4chan has cp
turns out I was 5 years too late
I remember trying to download a song from P. Diddy and instead getting full blown anal/scat combo porn. I showed it to my mom because in my autistic child mind, a computer tech should be able to fix that issue and turn porn into a music file.
She just looked at me, sighed, and walked away shaking her head.
As I walked along
The supposed golden path
I was confronted
By mysterious spectre
He pointed to the graveyard
Over on yonder hill
I paused in cosmic reflection
Confused on wondering
Of how I came to die
I was confused
Coz if I was dead
How and why did I die
And I composed myself
And decided I should face it
Then I stood paralyzed
On the supposed golden path
And I was confronted
By powerful demon force
And there was the devil
And we spoke his words
Flowed like glowing lava from the mouth of a volcano
And I said:
Help me, Lord!!
I found myself in some kinda hell
But I did not believe in heaven and hell
World in opposites kind of reality
But I gained control of myself
And decided to press on
As I walked along
The supposed golden path
I was trembling with fear
All the lions and the wizards yet to come
I seen in the distance
Silver mountains rising high in the clouds
And a voice from above did whisper
Some shining answer from the moon
Please forgive me
I never meant to hurt you
Doing a paper for uni on cp and its psychological effects on victims.
This place (and every other chan ever) came up so I had a look. I saw some shit, man... shit I didn't need to see.
This was about the only chan I couldn't find any on and some of the threads made me kek, so I kept coming back.
Now I'm addicted to shitposting and lying my ass off to see what kinds of reactions I can get.
better learn soon or build that wall faster.
buddy in my art class sophmore year was always on /b/ showed me been here ever since
>Now I'm addicted to shitposting and lying my ass off to see what kinds of reactions I can get.
I honestly unironically find this very entertaining. I could shitpost all day, just because I love seeing the reactions I get.
I may have a mental disorder.
> mom is churchfag so I'm dragged there every Sunday
> make friends with weird kid
> has a very odd sense of humor
> uses words like lulz, fag, newfag etc.
> out of curiosity ask him what those words mean
> shows me this site
> ff to today
> Mostly lurk /x/, /mu/, and /b/
Was when I woke up from cryofreeze. Kicked open the door casing and in between the brazilian shrubbery I saw some newfags reading about how I did nothing wrong.
Pretty sure it was around the end of 2003 for me. Was discussing tentacle rape on SAF. Some queer named moot posted his new site that he modeled after 2chan. He didn't like how SAF handled anime. I check it out. Stayed around. That's back when /b/ was mainly anime discussion.
Take your ass somewhere else.
I'm sick of foreigners slowly migrating here.
But let's see, I was like 17 maybe 16. Go's bro was browsing one day at kitchen table, asks me if I want to see something fucked up, he shows me a cheesy pizza picture. I noticed the URL and never left.
I'm now 26
>mfw the first image I saw here was cp
>Friend tells me about 4chan, telling me to browse /r9k/ and /s4s/
>being worthless faggot, browse /b/ instead
>Being 15, hit up Rule 34 threads for first few days
>Eventually start clicking other threads
>Now browsing Rekt, Gore and a few others
>Now 3 years later, learned quite a bit bout myself because of this site.
>I don't regret a thing even if people think I'm autistic sometimes and need a mental evaluation
i spended long nights here internally it made me less attracted toward normal social contact for a while there then aroun 2013 i broke the addciction. the diisturbing mask people project here is sometimes unbelievable. i feared my girl would ever catch me laughing at the stupid funny shit because i know the twisted shit that goes in this blogs. never thought to myself she checked my phone when i slept.. terrible mistake. probably gave her the wrong perspective of the person i used to be, but overcame (masked) it and stoopped looking for the explicit content to get satisfaction, only kept coming back for the laughs... her looks when i bursted out laughing and didnt understand... worst projection to what the mind may have build in her.
threads been reported for cp distribution, enjoy your ban faguette.
lets talk about moderation on this tibetan sewing machine image sharing board for a second..
I had heard about all the weird shit on here through various news programmes in the UK. The first time I went on to 4Chan I couldn't which page to go on first so I went with b/. It was a day of glory, it was the original Fappening.
Or its a healthy outlet for stress. Shitposting seems more sane to me than beating up a pillow or telling a hand puppet all about my day.
If this place didn't have such a shitty rep, I'd send patients this way. Instead, I have to give them an approved booklet with useful hints on starting a blog... mostly referencing tumblr.
Yep. Never found the pics online anywhere. -- she claimed she never posted. Not sure I believe her, but her face wasn't in them and there are millions of similar pics online. Her tits didn't necessarily look like someone UA, so I let it go. I figured she'd be lost in the forest of selfies.
I have seen alot of weird inside jokes on the internet. Didn´t really care about it all that much but at some point i wanted to understand a joke someone wrote on youtube i think.
Googled it, finnaly understood the concept of memes and most of them originated here.
I got curious, decided to check this place out and now i fap to weird shit.
Anyone here old enough to remember the whole Cracky-chan saga?
This place really hasn't changed, in my opinion, ever since that movie came out and referenced this place, that's when things got softer. Alot of the people who used to lurk during our time, have migrated to EIGHTchan. But it's probably a good idea to use tor to access it.
She did post stuff later tho. Ran across it on her computer. She was older tho, and she was always smart enough to keep them anonymous. The concept was mildly disturbing, but otherwise she was a good kid -- just a little twisted. Like her dad.
Pretty sure that's how I remember it. I also remember moot needing donations to keep the site up and when the HentaiKey owner got PayPal to fuck over moot so that he couldn't use PayPal to source the donations. The site was up and down constantly. Sometimes for weeks. It was a fucking mess but the drama kept me coming back.
I think it was an Asian guy I worked with at Dairy Queen who knew all the memes, he would say at the end of the work day time to g-t-f-o. Or maybe we both new about it at the same time. But that was 2008 and I think I had already been browsing b before that, its hazy because I started smoking weed around that time too. I think it was through an online forum or somewhere on the internet that first brought me here.
