/pol/ with over-saturating dub posting and endless trolls baiting other anons with the aussie posters from /tv/ shitposting

>trolls posting anti-pitbull bait constantly even though the exact same debate would be had every single time and they would be BTFO they just keep posting them
>it's now a meme to hate cats to the point of constant shitposting about wanting them dead and not helping anons posting questions about them
>"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

Good. Cats are shit.
>>
>>942138
They're a common board topic. Now that all the "I'll shoot any cat I see hurrr" fags are constantly shitposting it makes many of the threads insufferable

>>942681
/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.

Then delet /pol/.
Then rule what ever number that autist complains about.
Then delet /pol/ again (the drumpfining).

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

when a man has nothing left to lose he has everything to gain. 10/10 recommendation would go again

>>
>>944313
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.

What happened to the mods who cares about these boards?

>>942027
/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.

Stopped keeping the repair thread up when there started being more "google it fag" posting, general shitposting, and confrontational posters than actual people needing help or helping.

When was the last time you saw a threads that typically had story's posted in the text field?
Now it's all screenshots from 2010.
And all the white knighting. Used to be able to screw with someone for days. Now it's <30secs before someone tips them off.
And never was there such a problem as we have now with requests outside of /r/.
Then all the begging threads, or the twits shilling their own twitch with a "let's raid xDDDD"
Most of all, normal porn, as in I don't want to throw up by the end of the thread. STAYED on its designated board.

All of these were never a problem years ago. I honestly blame phone poster's. A large portion of them are likely children. The rest can't be asked to write out a post, so they spend their time shitposting one liners.

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?
>/co/
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
>/vr/
Used to talk a lot about retro games and posting comfy retro battlestations, pictures and ads, but now a good half of it is eceleb shitposting and meta

The original Java Application got fucked over and now replaced with a much inferior html5 application that sucks

Thanks to often "oh brother" shitpost attacks, the board gets swamped in bullshit, which is sad because it used to be one of the less horrible boards

Now for boards that didn't get ruined at all, but did kinda slide into other stuff

The mecha board, but half the time it's general sci-fi anime or just any anime with guns, or practically just /a/ retro half the time... nothing really wrong with that though

>>948702
And following more on /a/, there are more posts of, "What was his/her endgame", "Say something nice about ___", "How can ___ even compete?"

The list goes on.
>>
>>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.
I sometimes wonder why do I still come here.

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.
