That's when I started coming here, and everyone said we were horrible newfags and the site was better in 2005/6. I have not actually noticed a significant change in the culture of 4chan in all this time. Developments, yes, like how /r9k/ went from 4chan-r***t -> what it is now, but it's all the same thing basically. Another development is the growth of right-wing Catholicism, but you could have predicted that since it's the maximally edgy stance to take at this point. I like 4chan because it's mostly funny and non-serious, and you can vent some spleen, but every now and then you'll come across an interesting and insightful post that you would not have seen anywhere else. (/lit/ being toward the top of the pack on this metric). Besides that, it's fun to make people look like idiots; and it's also kind of fun (albeit less fun) to take some half-thought position and then as soon as you start looking foolish, abandon the thread. Whereas on certain "other sites" there is a permanent record of your failures and idiocies for all to see.
>>
>>23429860
>certain "other sites"
ah yes that one and the other one
>>
>>23429860
I’ve only been on /b/ in like 07 then left the site till I started reading and going on /lit/ in like 14. I’ve heard /b/ is a porn board now which is sad. /lit/ has gotten much worse
>>
>>23429893
>14
was that before guenonfag?
>>
>>23429893

Man the way I remember it /b/ was always mostly porn, but maybe I'm wrong. I did enjoy the "FFFUUUUUU" threads, being 14 or 15 at the time.
>>
BTW Reading this entire list would be a misapplication of your time. After you read the main currents of western philosophy, you should have already developed strong opinions and areas of interest, leading you down more specialized paths.

>>23429184
Camus is literally better than most philosophers.
Retards here think that Philosophy is better if it's unknown, If the Philosophy was useful then regardless of the fucking author it is good

I don’t remember. I never paid attention to him and wouldn’t know him if it wasn’t for the spam which time has shown to be an outside group making their presence felt. It was out of control and then one day it was gone

Biggest differences are the lack of the novel and poem today, way stronger gatekeeping back then, stricter moderation, and just a different tone or vibe overall

This is why I don't take seriously people who say the site has been ruined, or whatever. I've been coming here since 2007, roughly since that list was posted, and the site has changed but I wouldn't say it's gotten WORSE. Honestly, when people talk about the idea that 4chan has gotten worse, I sometimes think it's not that the site has changed, it's that they, themselves, have grown up, lived through life, experienced disappointments, and what they really miss about "old 4chan" is the days of their youth when things were brighter and more full of promise.
>>
>>23432027
My life’s gotten better since my early days on 4chan and I think /lit/ has gotten worse
>>
>>23432027
obvously being an annoying contrarian has always been the main thing about 4chan, i miss when people actually took interesting positions with some sort of internal logic. the political leaning here used to be extremely libertarian. the proliferation of right-wing catholicisim is the worst thing to happen to the sight, without a doubt
>>
>>23432816
>the proliferation of right-wing catholicisim
This is completely nonexistent outside of a brief surge in popularity circa 2016, comparable to the former Buddhism fetish the board had. You don't see any religious sorts period nowadays.
>>
>>23432829
Nta but you don’t see all the Claude Frollo types here?
>>
>>23432841
no I see a bunch posts about magic and German idealism
>>
>>23432027
Back in 2007, the web was smaller, the community more dedicated (to moe anime and otaku culture, as your picture indicates), and the newfags more competent and willing to adapt to board culture. Today's phoneposters don't care about board culture and simply parrot whatever is popular on other sites.
4chan hasn't become worse the same way that a twenty year-old who still can't use a toilet hasn't become worse.

I'm too dumb to make heads or tails of any math. But I have noticed the quality of discussion going down for some time. But what's worse is that this place hasn't only gotten dumber but less fun and creative as well.
