Now they want to shut down 4chan

Recommended Posts

As far as my internets is concerned it wouldn't alter my time spent on line, but I just think it's wrong

and is discriminating behaviour. Whoever it is that inhabits 4chan, that is their space to ' play ' or w/e

you want to call it.

For obvious reasons I'm rather glad those dudes are happy there as I don't need to interact with them

if I choose not to, it's quite symbiotic really and I'm all for not interfering with that and them .

 

Just rethinking my first sentence ... if their site was closed down then those 4chan dudes might find

atomic an enterprising place to be. Would up the post count for a bit too.

 

Anyway ...

I really cannot tell whether you are an idiot or savant.

God no. At least with 4chan active they're generally isolated to their own little pocket of the universe I can generally ignore.

I've never even been there but net censorship is always something to resist. So long as it is doing no harm let them do whatever they do.

 

Let them get denied and next it will be places like Reddit, Tumblr and then here :)

 

Cheers

First they came for the /b/tards and I did not speak out because I was not a /b/tard. Then they came for the Furries and I did not speak out because I was not a Furry. Then they came for the lulz and I did not speak out because I was not a lulz. Then they came for you and I'm never going to give you up, never going to let you down, never going to run around and desert you.

It's so freaking dumb.

As if there won't be some other nexus springing up as soon as this happened, if indeed it ever did. More likely you'll end up with a "Thepiratebay" scenario, where it's just a lot harder to keep down than they initially think.

 

If this proceeded, as soon as 4chan lost it's domain, it would find another, in another country. Meanwhile I'm sure there'd be 5chans 6chans, and other chans springing up linking to it.

 

It's not the 4chan that's the problem. 4chan is just a 'place'.

It's the people, and even then it's just a vocal, immature, minority.

Agree. The people may not be to your or my liking, but in the link I posted in the OP it shows ...

" an organisation called Rantic," responsible for the latest to-do re Watson.

I'm more concerned about the likes of Rantic thinking they can do this shit to corrupt any domain they feel inclined to .

Exactly.

 

Next thing you know, there'll be government types convinced that if they shut down pastebin nothing bad will ever happen again. It's thinking that shutting down wikileaks will end leaks, shutting down TPB will end piracy, and shutting down 4chan will end mean people that is contributing to all the fucked things in the world. If people make decisions that are based on flawed logic, and don't actually make the intended changes, then they degrade life and liberty, for no benefit to the public.

So is this cos some actors got their titty-pics hacked and put online?

 

FFS.

 

Who cares.

 

If you are concerned about your privacy and image then a)Don't make titty-pics in the first place 2) Don't make titty-pics with your phone and 3) Don't sign up with a dodgy company that automatically uploads your titty-pics to the cloud.

 

geeeeeez

I'm sure this has nothing to do with anything Anonymous has gotten upto over the years.

Partly. Anonymous have done some great stuff but they've also been bullying cunts. It's all moronic, but there's a certain symmetry in using some of the same tactics back against the home of Anonymous.

Shrug.

 

I DO not agree with any government censorship at all (or censorship in general), but if a group manages to

1. Shut down 4 Chan perma

or 2, Block 4chan from the peeps proper then I'll be amazed.

 

Many men have tried . . . so many, but none has succeeded.

It would also be a complete waste of time, shut down 4chan and they'll just move to another chan. There was suppose to be an exodus from 4chan (or one of it's boards?) over the last week or so anyway so blocking a possibly shrinking chan would get you no where.

Gamergate broke up a chunk of 4chan. They've gone elsewhere.. (5chan??? :P )

 

At the end of the day. Trolls will be trolls. Hackers will be hackers. And shit will happen online.

As long as there are forums and img forums at that, there will be a version of 4chan.

 

As long as there is anonymity, there will be Anonymous.

 

Once men had clubs and made war on other peoples, now days we have computers and still 'break and enter'. It's not right, but shutting down 4chan is akin to putting a bandaid over open heart surgery.

I'd be worried to put my name behind anything that is involved in shuting down 4chan. Id even be scared to say public that I back the movement to shut down 4chan.

 

The internet is a scary place with crazy people. Id rather poke a wasp nest then try to shutdown 4chan.

 

The people behind this are either very brave or very ignorant to 4chans (community) powers. One does not simply shutdown 4chan and solve <insert problem>
