>"rescue dogs are all shitty"
>"if your dog does one thing wrong then you're a shitty owner and should never own a dog kys"
>"hey /an/ first time poster can you breed ID my puppy"

may not seem bad compared to other boards, but if you posted before it was so heavily saturated with these types then you'd get it. It used to be that the only trolls were buggy and the one dude who thought he was a vampire and that giving dogs baths made them sick. Now it's shit

/pol/ really has degraded ever since moot nuked it to shitpost hell back in 2014/ The board is nothing but a flanderized caricature of what redditors and newfags think it was like circa 2014, gathering what they know from epic 4chan funny moments.They don't understand the Libertarian or Ancap aspect /pol/ used to have. They don't know that Stormfront continued to invade /pol/ even after their shittery got /n/ and /new/ deleted. Hell, they don't even fully understand the fairly new redpill mythos brought in via Stromfront. They just think /pol/ is a secret Trump HQ for edgy memes, and I doubt that will change any time in the future. It's at 2009 /b/ levels of newfaggotry, and the board is wholly lost to newfaggotry. 8/pol/ isn't any better.

On the bright side, the destruction of /pol/ has gotten me to get off of 4chan and actually do something constructive with my free time. I'm currently taking on art as a hobby, and the little amount I spend on 4chan is now spent on /ic/ of all places. Good stuff.
>>
>>942730
It started with a troll named buggy who absolutely hated outdoor free roaming cats (he actually had a lot of good points since outdoor cats are really bad for many reasons but he was such an autist about it no one listened). eventually he got permabanned and the anti cat shit stopped. But because he wasn't there, people who enjoyed his shitposting started making threads and derailing others about outdoor cats. Eventually that devolved from hating only outdoor cats into any cats and cat owners. It's annoying. Aside from buggy, I blame a lot of /an/'s issues on how adoption/neutering dogs and keeping cats indoors has become wayyyy more popular, so people want to feel like a special snowflake for having the unpopular opinion

>>942739
Nah. Can't speak for other boards but aside from the cat threads and pitbull b8, /an/ wasn't like this two years ago. Hell, it wasn't even like this one year ago.
>>
The /qa/ - Quests and Adventure thread died here over a year ago.
Then delet /pol/.
Then rule what ever number that autist complains about.
Then delet /pol/ again (the drumpfining).
I rarely visit this place anymore.
>>
The last straw on /co/ was when janies and mods started deleting any political opinion they didn't like, while leaving ones they like alone. You just know they're the types who would scream about free speech if someone did that to them, but it's okay for them to ban you over it.
>>
>>942027
the people in charge of this site decided to ruin the only board I care about by banning people to please a handful of whiners and so I drank, took xanax, and rediscovered what it means to be a funposter

They'll find some way to justify it, while going on about "muh Hillary/leftist/SJW menace."

/pol/ is beyond saving at this point, because they've just become an outright parody of itself, & they don't even know it.

/a/ has hired some new-as-fuck jannies that are keeping generals he likes on the boards and deleting everything else. There are six Jojo threads, two bleach generals, and at least two to four flip flapper threads, but the things I like aren't allowed one.
>>
>>942027
>/ic/
people took advantage that there's little traffic and few to none mods and created generals that have no business being there. Why is there "porn thread generals" if there is /aco/? why is there an "alternative art and stylization" general if there is /co/? those people also crosspost to those said boards.
the "merc wip" meme also led to people leaving because the quality of the board dropped. the need for memes takes precedent over user drawn pictures. Users post more in their tumblrs they advertise in the self promotion threads more than /ic/.

I used to browse /b/ up until 2010. You can probably guess why I left it.

Used to be a cool textboard, then textboards were frozen and kept for archiving, then a couple months after moot left they were just destroyed. Thankfully Hiro made it again, but it was an imageboard behind a paywall... I have a pass, but /vip/ is just too dead and is so boring. What's the fucking point?

It was a pretty unique board with some cool posters, then it just turned into various circlejerks and now a third of it is cool, third of it is tumblr type posting, and the third is people accusing people of being tumblr

>>948711
Generally 50% of all threads on any fast board are stock phrase shitposts. "What did he mean by this?", "This is X, say something nice to her", "Is he, dare I say it, our guy?", "X will defend this", "What happens here?", "What is the X of Y?" and so on and so on.

America is an idiot country and it allowed Russia to literally hijack their election. Trump lost the popular vote and most people hate him but because the American electoral system is so fucked up, he won anyways. Nobody will do anything to Russia because Trump/Republicans have no loyalty to their country and will continue to be Russia's bitch boys. It's the most laughable thing ever that a literal fascist was able to take over when American fought years ago in WW2 specifically to stop a fascist from taking over the world. Fuck all Americans.

/sp/ was my first proper board back in 2010.

It took it sharpest decent around 2012 (I think??) when mods started to ban anything remotely off topic.There used to be all sorts of fun threads, especially during American hours, but a new mod policy came into effect and destroyed the board culture.
I dont think anyone from those days still browses there routinely.

It also became inundated with generals for everything and as im sure many of you know generals kill boards.

I used to like it, but honestly I was too much of a newfag to remember when it wasn't shit. I could ignore feelposting and "we're gonna make it" shitposts. Mostly stayed for discussion untill I learned anatomy and realized that most people don't know what they're talking about. Can't take advice from someone who thinks that "insertions" is muscle shape. But even those shit discussions and advice are rare now, regarding fitness at least. It's all about "sloots" and qt's now. And those threads are just means to belittle others using some concerning projection or just common one-liners. That's what apparently means being an alpha male. Too easy. Just stop being a pussy, LMAO. Also remember to participate in high test threads or you're a nu-male cuck. But seriously, they just want to make each other feel insecure in order to feel better about themselves. And that's not just /fit/.

I was there from the very first day it was created. I swear to God that it was originally a wonderful OC hub. People would post incredible short stories such as pic related. At one point, robots even created a /lit/ zine years before /lit/ was created.

But as we all know, /r9k/ eventually become an incel circlejerk. It was tolerable at first because people would still post OC. But eventually, all the OC disappeared and then I left. Once moot brought it back after deleting it the first time, I tried to come back, but left again after it became clear it would always be an incel circlejerk.

Btw I'd be happy to post the rest of the story from my pic if people are interested (I apologize for the poor image quality, it's old). I'd also recommend reading this story if you want another example of what old /r9k/ managed to produce: https://github.com/bibanon/bibanon/wiki/Lee-Won

the real culprit is lack of moderation

got tired of wading through countless /e/ imagedumps and people ruining threads with cropped porn, found a better place (no not lebbit nor fulchan) and moved on without looking back

It's at the point where you can enter a thread about a series, and you know exactly what 80% of the posts in the thread will be like, and a third of those posts are the same few shitposts. So many people don't even put any real effort into their posts, they somehow think posting the first thing that comes to their mind is a good idea.
>>
>>995674
You know what's responsible for that attitude, right?

Twitter. If you don't use it, here's the run down: It is a site based entirely around people just saying the first thing that's on their mind. Long comments are discouraged because of the absolutely strangling character limit.

The fact is, most of those people you're talking about also use Twitter.
>>
>>942313
yep.

basically a glorified /general/ board during slow points now because mods were too shit to handle it.
>>
>>942979
Lmao you do realize that like 80% of /pol/acks are right-leaning libertarians/constitutionalists, right? Their propaganda and memery has intensified lately because of the size of the scope of the war that conservatives have to fight, and they aren't going to win it by making calm rational points in favor of civic nationalism. Better to move the general dialogue in the direction of nationalism even if they have to pretend to be stormfag ethno-nationalists so that it permeates the political discussion, and the more sane distributions of nationalism that /pol/ ridicules as normie garbage become the agreed upon solution.

By the way, it's working: Look at how many prominent voices in the libertarian middle now advocate various flavors of nationalism, usually civic nationalism. Just 2 years ago to identify as a nationalist would have implied that you were a fullblown stormtrooper; now it just means you aren't far left.

Man, /r9k/ going to shit has got to be my biggest regret. Unfortunately, not even the 80% incel 20% OC posting ratio still exists, it's become a weird shithole for stuff that's like a mix of current /b/ and /soc/ with occasional incel posting. It doesn't even resemble /r9k/ anymore.

It feels like most /x/ users are new as fuck. The occult discussion past low effort shitposts either went elsewhere or concentrated on their general. Divination threads also stay in a single general.

4chan has always been full of incels, I think it has more to do with how the robot script stops you from posting memes and pasta. If you want to shitpost on other boards, you can just spam the same images and text over and over again. Since you can't do that on /r9k, shitposters just saw it has an opportunity to vent about their miserable lives. And once /r9k/ became known as a board where incels can cry with no judgement, it created a feedback loop, thus permanently cementing the shitty board culture we all know today.

I know that feel anons. What really bothers me is that nearly all of the OC from the early stages of /r9k/ was lost once chanarchive.org went down. Anything that would be archived now would be well after /r9k/ went to shit. It's a miracle I was able to find a Pastebin with the Special Ed story.

Nobody is really buying the passes though. Hiro really thought people buying the passes would net him tons of money. Except normalfags don't want to spend money on shit like that, and neither do newfags when they get stuff for free.

But its really upsetting when the newfags and normalfags not only refuse to lurk or read the rules, they expect us to cater to them.

I have been convinced for a long time and am still convinced that creating designated boards for "retarded fun" and "not retarded fun" would make the job of moderating 4chan much easier.
>>
>>1002382
If there's a good and bad board on 4chan, they will always take the bad to the good or the good will go bad. The problem with 4chan is that most of the userbase is pretty horrible in most ways, and it doesn't have enough mods and janitors for how big it is and how many topics it has. If moderation is stretched thin, then spreading them even more thin isn't going to solve the problem.
>>
>>1002393
I honestly blame moot for this. His stubbornness and refusal to hire any mod who wasn't his buddy is why moderation is so horrible and small.
>>
>>1002393
>they will always take the bad to the good or the good will go bad.
This is defeatism.

Splitting a board in half, assuming that neither explodes into popularity, leaves the same amount of moderation work to be done except they don't have to cater to the board warriors who alternately cry "what is this garbage" or "no fun allowed" depending on the weather. Which is most of it.
