There is a guy on /qa/ who has an absolute death grudge against /pol/. He pays for a VPN and uses a script to 'enforce rules' by flooding the board. His script/bot copies phrases from /pol/ and pastes them in threads that he doesn't like and he doesn't stop until they're dead. Mods have banned him an uncountable number of times but he never stops.

For example, here's a thread he raided: https://desuarchive.org/qa/thread/1526235

Scroll through it, seriously. Almost a literal thousand deleted posts from several spam waves, all because the thread mentioned /pol/ which set him off. And this is just one of several hundreds that he destroyed. Mods deleted all his posts and banned all his IPs only for him to come back the next hour and try again until they finally gave up and let him destroy the thread. He does the same thing on other boards and even other imageboards whenever you start a thread with certain topic that he disproves of, then he runs his script which talks to himself to simulate discussion until the thread dies.

One of his many phrases: https://desuarchive.org/qa/search/text/naseem%20hamed

Seems harmless, but all of those threads hit bump limit by force. There could be a thread on page 5 for example, which hasn't had a post in hours but then when he wakes up and turns on his bot, suddenly gets 10 posts a minute until it hits bump limit, then he bumps all other threads below it, forcing it to 404. He's been doing this for the last 2 years and he's also responsible for the "cycling" content, half the board is week-old threads being artificially kept alive.
I'm guessing he does it because he's mad that he'll never be a janitor, but who knows. It's surprising how someone can do the same thing every day for years and not get tired of it, but what's worse is that he's probably the same guy on /a/ (ACK) or /s4s/ (Sparkles) who has made it their life goal to be as irritating as possible.
These people exist. Barneyfag is tame in comparison.

>Undiscovered BioShock easter egg emerges in 4chan thread about devs on drugs
>By
>Richard Scott-Jones


>It’s been over a decade since the original Bioshock, so you might imagine there’s nothing left to discover about it. Turns out, you’d be wrong: an anonymous post on 4chan, apparently from a developer, describes an obscure easter egg mocking Paul Hellquist, one of the game’s designers.

>The story emerged on a 4chan thread about game developers using drugs to get their creative juices flowing. An anonymous poster says they have seen it happen, and makes some wild claims about their own time working on Bioshock 2. After being challenged on whether they worked in the industry, the poster then offers this obscure BioShock easter egg as proof:

>“In BioShock 1, go to the second half of Hephaestus where you first encounter [Andrew] Ryan in person. Use Incinerate to get you down to 1 HP, then use it again on the area where the cutscene triggers and walk into it. You’ll die right when the scene starts, but wind up in a Vita Chamber outside the map. Turn on Art Captions and you’ll see a developer message about Paul Hellquist not doing his job. No-one has found this bug yet publicly; it’s in all versions. Cheers.”

>The story was spotted by freelance journalist Nick Monroe. A user replied to his tweet on the subject with a screengrab from BioShock Remastered, apparently proving the easter egg exists:

Were there times when you were soured on an anime/manga because of some character trait or plot direction that was revealed early in the story? What would you have changed about that plot point?

To have fun reading through these alternate plots, lets ignore the fact that some may be implausible or contradictory to canon developments.)For example: When watching HxH I really liked it until it revealed all of Kurapika's new powers, as I never really felt any tension with his battles.

It's some kind of thing that works with cardboard cutouts and the Switch's Joy-Con controllers. There's a video game cart that goes along with it. Doesn't look appealing to me at all personally, but the Wojaktard explosion seems a bit extreme of a reaction.
