I really do not understand why anyone uses 4Chan... I mean, on a basic, functional level it makes no fucking sense at all.
This Jap ass Engrish molesting squid sucker social media platform that you kiddies call an "image board"... WAS NOT DESIGNED FOR HIGH LEVEL TRAFFIC!
In fact, it was specifically designed, back in the 90s, to be cookie cutter. Basically the Japanese version of a blog or a Usenet group.
Everyone has their own little blog, everyone has their own little chan board... that was the idea.
Generally speaking, the more users, the more useless an image board like this becomes.
For some reason, at some point, gluttonous American thinking took over and the Internet went from a wondrous wild frontier to a small handful of monotonous mega cities with everyone living asshole to elbow.
The Internet isn't fun like that. Search engines used to serve an actual purpose. Hell we even had things like "web rings" and "hot lists" so shit could remain decentralized while still being easily accessible to all.
And, in turn, that inherent decentralization made spamming/shilling/propaganda and the like extremely difficult to pull off and ultimately pointless. It's hard to argue against shit that's speeding along a conveyor belt of bullshit at mach 12... it's a LOT easier to argue against stupid shit when it's more isolated and poking along at a snails pace.
This is why, for example, if you want to have the GREATEST level of impact on society... go on FaceBook or Twitter and search out LOCAL NEWS STATIONS.
Not too small, not too big. I mean you go on like CNN's FaceBook page and you'll just be pissing into an ocean of piss. You'll be lucky if even three people see your posts as they're flying by at light speed. But on those smaller local news stations their online viewership often clocks at around 10k, so you can make a post and easily get a few hundred people to see it and even actively engage with you. Or a few thousand if you piggyback off the top postings (provided they don't already have too many replies).
Anyway, chan boards are better when they're less popular. The more popular they get, the more shit they become. Niche is almost always better than mainstream... unless you're a fuckin shill.
