Neckbeards and Legbeards mix like bleach and ammonia. It never made anything better.

They're right, though. Being a woman is great... provided you're attractive and between the ages of 16 and 22. It's a fucking hellzone in every other case. If I was a girl and I wasn't incredibly attractive, I'd want to kill myself.

So I was just thinking the other day...
I was lucky enough to be a contributing part of /co/ during its "golden age" of sorts, but left after I started to find it unbearable.
I feel kinda silly, but the thing that saddens me the most is the thought that future /co/mrades (god, haven't used that word in years) won't have the same community filled with creative energy to reinforce the enjoyment of their favorite series.
Or maybe that's the nostalgia.
I heard somewhere that /co/ was reforming, and I visited recently, but was met with nothing but waifu threads. Maybe I caught them at a bad time, but I feel that I would have been disappointed regardless of what I found due to nostalgia goggles.
>> No. 378768
Here's a protip: if you want a community to improve, become a part of it, and do your best to improve it. Don't beg for things. Do it yourself. Or else you won't get anything.
>> No. 378818
Well, I actually did participate regularly, and then did my best to "steer it in a better direction " to try and set something of an example on a regular basis for roughly two years after I began to find the place intolerable. My threads tended to be received positively, but didn't cause any noticeable impact, perhaps because they weren't good enough, or perhaps because of the changing environment and the newer posters not responding in the way I would have hoped.
Eventually, I realized it was eating up way too much of my time and effort to do it daily, and I visited less and less, until I stopped altogether--given how much time I used to waste, it could have been a blessing in disguise anyway.
Anyway, despite the point of this thread, my post was more out of feeling oddly wistful than wanting to complain.
>> No. 378822

Easy to say, almost impossible to achieve. Especially when 4chan is so much like the lowest common demeanor when it comes to niche interests.

I mean, the large groups behave just like kids on MTV would or something. Flavor of the month, everything is shit, we are smart, everybody else is dumb, rabble rabble!
>> No. 378830
> become a part of it, and do your best to improve it. Don't beg for things. Do it yourself.

curious to see how you believe this work in practice. You don't improve a nob of people by just acting different from them.
>> No. 378897
Flying against the swarm directly is often a losing battle. True impact is often lost to the masses, especially in one of the last great bastions of the Internets' "Id", places where nothing is forbidden and everything is allowed.

If I could put the best methodology, imo, into a single phrase, I think it would have to be "don't get angry". This is kind of about trolling, but it's also kind of about the fact that a perfectly legitimate conversation generally does devolve into a shit-flinging insult-a-thon. And we like that, as people, we like that emotional payment we get in the form of righteous indignation; somebody is wrong on the internet and I am winning the debate.

But it's not really about winning. Not here. Yeah I beat the other persons' points down into the ground and called them a fag and where does that really get me? Do they really ever stop and consider what I have to say when I do that? Or do they just resent me for dominating them in the fight? I'm still running in the special olympics here and my point probably didn't even come across.

Keeping your cool online is difficult. You can read so much stuff that is just stupid, ignorant, racist, misinformed, bullshit, and a half a dozen other words for "not technically correct". And that's just when you're arguing something that has a technical correctness, like a model specification. Arguments about ethereal things like Emotions or God usually devolve much more quickly.

But you can't really make anyone believe anything, you can only make them think. And that is best done by presenting a viewpoint they may not have considered before. Not angrily, not with hostility, but rather trying to explain why it is that you believe the way you do. Perhaps, if you do not insult your opponent, they may actually respect your tone enough to consider your viewpoint.

But it is not the kind of attitude I would attempt to stare down all the racists on /b/ with. Some fights are insurmountable, especially online where the most oft used weapon is undoubtedly "harsh language". Such change as that will have to come without from the posters' own personal lives before it will come from within, and it is rare that a paragraph has so moved a man that he has abandoned all his good hunting and drinking buddies that he will recant all his friends.

I think this is the best method; do not treat others' opinions as pure madness and nonsense, even if they are barking.

This is kind of a weird question but were you a Space Ghost thread person? I remember there was a period where there were some really great Space Ghost threads and the anon making them said he just wanted to improve the board and maybe influence others to do the same.

Well, I been a regular contributor for 3 years, and have nothing to really complain about. That, and I don't believe all those stories about how *insert board of choice* used to be good. Even if they come from people "who were there".

And if the site really downgraded, here is a question: does this place provide a good alternative? When I make threads here, nobody wants to post, because nobody cares. At least on regular /co/ there are a few people who might share my interests.

ALSO, I thought this was a thread about moderation.

That's pretty interesting--perhaps it has to do with when each of us first went to /co/. Though I confess to possibly being under the influence of nostalgia goggles, I do remember that "golden age" to have a much higher standard for threads. I would take a break from it every now and then, but would still find it fun and familiar when I came back.
After this period ended, I remember coming back and finding it virtually unrecognizable.
But that just from my perspective.
I do feel that there has been a more than noticeable decline in quality, but I don't really blame any particular group of people for it. I think it's more that 4chan has grown a bit more in the public eye and therefore attracted a greater range of people, including younger teens. The time I visited recently, the board more closely resembled a youtube comment section than what I remembered.
But again, perhaps it's just my rose-tinted glasses of the old days.
>> No. 378981
There's a pretty reasonable explanation for that, being that as a shitty teen you tend to be more tolerant towards shitty teen posts. But as you grow older, not so much anymore.

It's not 4chan imo, it's the internet around it. 4 years ago, good place for content were rare and hardly populated. People would actually dig through tons of moonrunes blog to find goo art download it, then put it on 4chan for everyone.
Nowaday, we have tumblr, facebook and tons of pornographic aggregators. People don't have to dig, and when they find stuff, they use 4chan more or less as an ad banner to get people to get it on its original place.
The concept of "4channer" is now lost, since people are actually more emotionally linked to more socially rewarding places, and come on 4chan to feel a little bit more special and attract people to their place.
So in the end, the flow of data has been inverted. People used to go on 4chan to make discoveries, now they are just going there to get links for better sites.
>> No. 379042
I meant to say that it now attracts more teens, and not that I was a shitty teen. Although I was.
However, I got the sense that by being surrounded by people that weren't shitty teens, I gradually got assimilated into the culture. Whereas now, I get the impression the shitty part is no longer the minority, and thus the non-shitty part is what adapts to the shitty part, and not the other way around like I feel it used to.
My being a shitty teen may very well have been a part of it, but I'm fairly positive that the decline in quality has been real.

Thanks man, I thought for a long time which synonym of stupid to use.
And /vg/ sucks. A board of threads all acting like a board with all the memes and "culture" and clique mentality of it crammed in just makes it a quantum shit pile.

Sure, this general might be OK, and that game's generals are OK, but this is a lump average of the whole board and there's far more worst parts of /v/ there than there are good parts of /v/.
>> No. 379282
/pol/ are making a nuisance of themselves in /tg/. Nothing they can't handle, though.
I still storytime there just so I know that, for a few hours at least, there'll be one less crappy thread on the front page.
>That, and I don't believe all those stories about how *insert board of choice* used to be good. Even if they come from people "who were there".
Even when I first started lurking on /co/, there was this talk about "daytime /co/" and "nighttime /co/", and one was better than the other for some nebulous reason that I could never figure out.
>> No. 379286
Back in the day (waaaaay back) nighttime /co/ was about 50/50 North America/Europe. Most of the discussion around these hours was more mature/thought-out, in part because the board was slower and in part because the posters involved seemed to be older (and also less likely to be interested in most cartoons, topics were mostly about comics.)

IMO, back then "Daytime /co/" was still fine, but you were more likely to see multiple threads for the same thing on Page 1, spam, shitposting, stupid discussions, etc. Not nearly as bad as it seems now, though.
>> No. 379398
This also has factors in the "cartoons and comics should split" debate.
>> No. 379412
how is that a debate? it always comes in threads where people want to legitimate their shitposting by antagonizing the other half of hte board. Typically now it's about calling people who hate your favorite waifu cartoon "capefag" or people who dislike your comics "tumblr"
>> No. 379433

/tg/ can't handle anything. In fact, they propably ignore it, declare it board related, make a quest thread about it and try to shoehorn it into some Universe/stupid selfmade RPG.

I think it's time for me to stop going to 4chan. It's far too popular these days and filled with sexist drivel. Nobody contributes anything anymore, either.

It sucks to be a girl and see all this garbage, I know it's 4chan and it's to be expected occasionally, but it was never this frequent until recently.

All the spin-off boards haven't been doing too well either. The age of the anonymous message board is over, I guess.

Well, it is summer. Even so, so long as people think there's no repercussion for their actions, they're going to spout asinine drivel they wouldn't otherwise (maybe). I realise that's a rather apathetic view of the internet, but aside from arguing with political wankers or whatever it is that personally ticks you off, there's nothing you or I can do. Your best bet for a carefree internet experience is to ignore the bad parts and cherish the good ones. If that means not visiting a site for a while because there's more awful bits than you can put up with, that may be best.

I'm also pretty done with 4chan. I only browse /toy/. There's a ton of shitposting and I'm getting sick of reporting it all because there's just so much. I'm not even kidding.


This was one of the more recent horrible examples. It's a bad thread to begin with but look at all the posts about /a/. This goes on in almost every thread about Japan-related shit nowadays. I always report it and hide it but it's getting to the point when I report so much of it in a thread I don't even feel like participating in it afterwards

I know this sounds like I'm someone who reports every little thing but I'm really not, there's just always a ton of these weird spam-y shitposts

Sad to hear, but fully understandable. These sites act as a draw for the horrible "id" of humanity, those terrible feelings and passions everyone keeps bottled up. Gazing into the spattering is generally not helpful, and only grants true vision in the most obtuse of senses. Looking at someones' pain made manifest is never a pleasant thing, and all the more unpleasant for being dressed up as anything more than simple pain.

Define "on topic not shitty threads". Because as far as I know you, our opinions on that would differ quite a bit.
>> No. 381135
Always with the attitude, eh anon? It's just threads about anime. On topic (ie talking about anime, to make that extra super duper clear for you), average amount of shitposting, no spamming or arguing, a reasonable level of discussion going then boom, delted. The same thread pops up twenty, thirty minutes later and it's fine. I'm not a frequent /a/ poster but I've seen it happen a few times now, it's mildly annoying.
>> No. 381141
Well, I'm a frequent poster and I never see it happen unless a thread genuinely derails or isn't on-topic in the first place. So just going by personal experience my first thought is to question the person whose post quality I don't regard very highly in the first place. And I'm still not entirely ruling out personal blog posts or a lack of lurking first happening in those threads, to which you might be somewhat blind as they're more common and accepted on plus4 and /co/. The /a/ mod I know is one of the best mods around and if your threads were genuinely on-topic, I wouldn't go blaming him. It might just have been a janitor who doesn't frequent the board regularly and blindly deletes threads that get reported by butthurt anons who don't like the anime/mangu discussed.
>> No. 381283

It's been around for a while. Before that, it was "assburgers" (aspergers). And remember, they've been appending -fag to everything and using *n----rs casually for ages now. So taking all that into consideration, I'm not sure why you're surprised when it comes to 4chan. "Autist" is just one of the current popular slurs. I'm not saying it isn't bad, but really.

it's been like that since some furry artist "won" the "flavour of the month" contest with that fucking dumb lamb. They came for it, and stayed, and now every month they spam furries to "win" again.
>> No. 384742


this lamb thing was over months ago, it was JUST a case of people hopping in for the novelty of it(great old cartoon, nostalgia, first whyboners, drawfags taking the chance to get attention, bored otherwise useless people coming up with OCs and EU and working out stories, usual /co/ fare) but after the second month everyone understood that there was nowhere else to go, everyone who was doing something about it moved on.

however some shithead keeps spamming her pics in every thread that shows up with an animal theme(suggestive or otherwise), inflating them with replies and attempts at counter-spam and giving the illusion that they would otherwise flourish, making these posters make them more often out of spite. because /co/ just can't ever stop taking b8.

if these muttday/bunday/herpetuesday threads just died off naturally from being what caturdays were in their worst moment(they're not much better right now either, which is simply not being from complete drought of new content), that is, endless reposts and a waste of server space, they'd realize they're not working out, whether they are in the happy ____ day or not.

Leggy threads were deleted even faster than caturday threads were at the time after about two or three days of her existence. If anything, people got tried of her threads being deleted and moved on. Leggy was only spammed only in Nessie threads and the reptile threads.

They fail because unlike Caturday, they don't have multple fanbases making art during the week to repost in the threads when Saturday rolls around along with the artists that made Caturday possible in the first place.

/q/ needs to come back. I don't care how shit it got, it was a place to dump all the meta-discussion that plagues so many boards on 4chan. I might have to e-mail him about that one, because now retards have more of an excuse to post meta threads on their respective boards.

I like the ban wall. I've actually made it a habit of leaving the window open and coming back every now and then to hit F5. It's funny to see these bans sometimes, and it's also good for people who don't believe 4chan gets any moderation. It was probably done to shut us (I've lightened up on my "mods don't do any work" stance in the last couple of months due to a better understanding of the system) up about it.

On the other hand, I dislike a ban wall because a few times I've scrolled through and saw people posting shit just to get banned. I saw a guy on /sp/ saying, "there's no /sp/ on the ban page. let's fix that" or something to that extent. It could lead to some shitposting, but we'll have to wait to see how much.
>> No. 384778
> It could lead to some shitposting, but we'll have to wait to see how much.
Any and everything on 4chan leads to shitposting. Put in a report ability? Shit posting and spam the report queue. New type of sage? Shitposting.

It doesn't matter how good or bad a change is, people will go apeshit on the boards when it first occurs. Hell, even when it doesn't, like that rumor long ago of 4chan requiring passes to view images, people will shitpost.
>> No. 384794
the ban page seems couter productive. People are already getting banned on purpose so they can evade and post their "trophy" screenshot about it, and overall it shows everybody what board is monitored at the moment so they can shitpost everywhere else.
Some bans are actually pretty fucking retarded too, so it will bite the mods in the ass soon at this rate.

Makes sense, because otherwise you'd do that job for them. Still feels odd when every other banned post is displayed.

I never liked that "business model"... one of the main reasons why I stayed away from SA. You pay up and you could be banned for the slightest things or at the random whims of a mod.

Having watched the /x/ of old burn away under a tide of relentless /b/tard bullshit, with no meaningful mod intervention until long after the ashes were cold, I have no faith in 4chan's moderation, and never will. They let an entire board once full of decent content be utterly destroyed, and it's never recovered. Maybe the accusation that the 4chan mods don't do anything is an unfair statement now, but the reputation is certainly well-earned.

Even when they are being active, their aim is often shit, and it feels like the harder they try, the worse it gets.

sage is still useful on the imagedump boards where people may want to post in a thread that has already reached its image limit without bumping it back to the front page. Then there's the percentage of /jp/ who have adopted 2ch's protocol for using sage. So the people who do use it for the reason it was created can still do so, and the people who use it as justification for shitposting may or may not be more discouraged now.

But most of the ad banners, at least the ones I've seen, have been for 4chan itself (rules, faq, etc.). And this is using Chrome where I don't have adblock installed. It's hard for moot to sell advertising because no one wants to associate their products with much of 4chan, and the really big ad companies like Google AdWords ban sites with porn. (A short discussion I had over e-mail with moot in 2007 shows they were suspended for "click fraud" as well.)

While I can't find the source, I recall that porn companies were interested in interstitials (full-page ads that cover up the content until you click close or a timer hits 0; see the likes of Forbes or Fakku for examples), but moot is dead-set against those because they're so fucking annoying.

No, it kept being a very pleasant thread. The rape stuff wasn't really the main topic. It just kinda came up, because Wolf Guy was mentioned. In the end we just kinda agreed that rape can very well be handled right (American History X, Berserk), but that some people just don't like those type of stories, because they don't like characters feeling weak and completely helpless, since they're looking to manga for escapism.

The main character, Guts, gets raped once as a kid, which makes him weary of human contact and behave like a wild animal, murdering without remorse until he meets Griffith and his Band of Hawks to whom he ever so slowly warms up to, until he finally makes friends and even falls in love for the first time with the female soldier Casca. However, Griffith who helped him on his way back to recovery betrays the Band of Hawks and sacrifices them to demons and rapes Casca in front of Guts as a gruesome show of power. Guts and Casca survive, but Casca was so traumatized that she's lost all her memories and reverted to a child-like state. Now Guts is on a quest to kill Griffith and get Casca's memory back. But the manga brings up multiple times that getting Casca's memory back, might not be what she wants and that Guts's quest might ultimately be entirely selfish and bring more suffering to everyone.

Idle thought, feel free to disregard.

4chan's /m/ has been divided for a long time now between "real" mecha and "toku" which is the word used for stuff like Sentai, Kamen Rider and Ultraman. The non-toku people would rather the toku people not be there but all complaining about the matter gets deleted. The toku people aren't particularly crazy about the arrangement either. The issue was around when Moot did his great rearranging, fracturing /v/ with his mighty hammer to make the godawful /vr/ and so forth, and he chose not to address it, meaning he most likely never will.

Maybe a toku board here would take some of the pressure off? The community has enough oomph for two ongoing generals plus scatterings of sub release threads, etc, in an otherwise slow, anime-centric board. The numbers would probably be about right for a plus4 board.

I wouldn't say it's needed; we've worked out an uneasy status quo. But I'm willing to bet it would be very much appreciated.

C'mon mods, step that shit up. I know some of these shitposters don't know how to ban evade, so make that punishment stick. Send someone away for a week or two the next time he posts a "tfw no gf" thread. The ones who don't know how to ban evade are going to think twice before they decide to shit up the board.

Not to mention 1 day bans get reset pretty fast. If you get banned for a day right before midnight, you can resume posting in a few hours.

Honestly, I'd think it'd be best to get more people who are fed up with the current state of 4chan to come over here. We'd have more traffic but not to the insane level of 4chan where shitposting outweighs actual discussion. I'd be nice to implement 4chanX like features to make the place better to post and discuss as well.

No they didn't. There were a few members of the moderation staff that posted on /q/ under anon, but that's hardly a sizable number of the moderation staff. Not to mention your post doesn't make sense because if they were part of the moderation staff, there's no reason to "false flag" anything.

>> No. 386376
/v/ is fucking awful now.

2006 was the beginning of the end, when the current (well, past now, I guess) console gen kicked off. The board slowly gravitated towards stupid flamewar bullshit (and since it was allowed to fester for so long, people think it's what /v/'s "culture" is supposed to be like).

Around 2007 is when the "/b/ with vidya" really started to kick off, and that bullshit persists to today. It's better now than it was just a few years ago, but it's still pretty bad.

Also, the unhealthy amounts of "stop liking what I don't like!" lead the board to shitting over everything. And the worst part about it is the shitty community. Because it's up to them to stop acting like /b/tards and shitting up everything, it's never going to stop.

Honestly, a big problem with a bunch of 4chan boards is that people look at it as "the internet's toilet" as opposed to an imageboard. Not every board on 4chan is /b/.

It is but when Consoles release and every minor thing happens /v/ is hysterical. One guy had PS4 issues on a stream. He was a retard and didn't know how to fix it and revealed personal information.

>> No. 386416
It's the modus operandi for most of 4chan's boards. Unadulterated rage and misunderstanding are rife, and they really push the culture, especially when encountering things people deeply disagree over.

/v/ was over for me when /vg/ became miles better at what /v/ was supposed to discuss. /v/ and /b/ are so built on trolling and on deliberately being assholes to each other that they don't even bother with anything else. Now I can actually go to a Halo thread, or a CoD thread, or a WoW thread, or almost any other game and I can take part in asshattery devoted solely to that game, without the thread getting shitposted into oblivion.

Yes, it's annoying having to sift through threads you have no interest in. Fortunately there's the hide thread function now, so you can just minimize the umpteen threads and go about your business.

Not him, but if people are posting that many threads, it fucks up the flow of the whole board, catalog or not. That type of posting also pushes threads off the board for no real reason.

I don't know what you're talking about in particular so I'm not going to press it, but this particular brand of knowledge is stupid. Being in a position of privilege does not mean you don't get to speak out for people who are not privileged.

It's like saying I shouldn't talk about people starving somewhere just because I have food in my fridge. What kind of sense does that even make?

Well I've tried everything and I can't get past the ban evasion cookies. I think I should leave 4chan since my posting is considered shit there.
>> No. 387442
My issue is that they are doing it on a broad blanket basis when it's not true. Unless you are a specific type of White male, that is unless you are rich, athletic, and straight, you have less privilege then some of these women. My problem is that they tell people to check their privileges without checking their own because they feel as women they are in a worse position than a white male who is in poverty when this is just not the case. Before you can call someone else on privilege you should check your own. More importantly what exactly does this do? There are ways to promote equality without being deranged and shoving your agenda where it doesn't belong. There are appropriate ways to do it and this isn't it. They also do nothing of importance. All it is are people who don't really want to do anything and doing everything wrong. There's actually being a gay activist, woman's rights activist, an activist in general. And then just bitching about something on the internet and not doing anything productive. Which I know is ironic but I'm not trying to actually change the world in any way though for people who actual do fight for equality I give them props. At the same time, I don't want all this bitching on the internet and I'd like to enjoy my videogames and comics in peace.

Do what about what? If I go on 4chan and say that not all brands of feminism are bad I get some approval but most people go ballistic and or decidedly ignore it. If I go and call SJW on their hypocrisy I get banned from the from because it's the hip thing to promote. It's garbage all around.
>> No. 387456
I would advise not to take that crowd mentality too seriously. If you'll recall, that was the exact mentality that really divided 4chan, over and over again over things like furries, raiding, pedophilia, etc.

I actually see this as something of a positive aspect as previously, the internet was primarily the dominion of men, particularly white men. And that affected the culture and the outlook. I agree that the "armchair feminist" is not really conducive to anything but the crowd-sourced harassment of individuals, but the upside is something not exactly perceived by a lot of guys on the other side. There are actually girls to talk to now, as opposed to girls being a myth or second-citizen users. We're actually getting more varied people in the discussion now and the discussion is a little richer for it even if the same old dumb shit keeps happening.

I imagine that might matter less if you came from a real life to the chans though.

I was actually talking to someone about this recently (can't remember who or where, though) and the idea of the *splat* toilet bowl is that you can check your feces for problems, which was useful in older days when there are more food-related issues, but these days is not.

And 9 times out of 10, they think you're offended by what they say (when in reality most people don't care about your opinions on liberals/conservatives/whateverthefuckelse and want said discussions to go on their appropriate boards), nevermind that this is 4chan and that anyone who has been there for a week has probably been exposed to gore/guro/lolicon/real cp/racism, etc.

>> No. 388638
> Plus there is this whole thing about /co/ = Tumblr because /co/ is not hating women, gays and blacks like other boards.

The funny thing is, /co/ was like this long before tumblr became a "thing". I don't know what it was about the board, but /co/ was always a lot more mature when it came to gays, women, and minorities. Maybe it's because comics have long featured these groups? I don't know. It was a good time and I liked it.

Any time someone on 4chan calls someone a "SJW", I just roll my eyes, because 9 times out of 10, it just means "This person isn't acting like a /b/tard". Chalk it up to 4chan's desire to run everything into the ground, I guess. SJW lost all meaning, right up there with words like "hipster"

Somebody please tell me the reasons why stream threads are not allowed on 4chan.
>> No. 389726

It's my theory you can blame people like the guys who run joowz as they would frequently go to off topic boards (/co/ and /v/), post about a DBZ stream, then bump the thread constantly with low-content posts.

Now, not every person is a shithead with their streams, but it's probably easier to just crack down on everything. It's a shame, because there have been fun streams (one guy streamed King of the Hill over 4th of July weekend one time. He got through every episode that weekend) but you also get people like the joowz shitposters.

So in short, thank spammers for that one.
>> No. 389727
This is a pretty poor policy, though, especially since moderation tends to tell people that porn is ok of you post links to the external sites all the time. so stream getting some some of special rule make few sense.

You might not like them but those waifushits are still on-topic. A janitor's job is not to shape the content of boards to their liking, it's deleting spam, nsfw and only blatantly obvious off-topic posts. You know, rule violations. Not "stuff I don't like".
>> No. 389939
Most waifu shit isn't on topic. Especially when it derivate nearly all the time to fetish discussion instead of comic or cartoon discussion, and people start posting porn links, real people and why they are currently masturbating at the moment. It's even worse when those faggots highjack normal discusions with "lol no fuck you here's muh waifu from the show image dump".
>> No. 389965
Not all of them are. The push for every day of the week to be themed around indulging /co/'s fetish hivemind is just irritating. "Hey guys here's an obscure reptile woman who appeared in one episode of a 90s cartoon, now let's talk about races from roleplaying games and post cropped porn from e621 while talking about how perfect our non-human girlfriends would be." I admit they act as a quarantine to keep those same posters from other threads but I feel shitty for even acknowledging that things are at that point, that one person's interests are another person's leper colony.

It kind of irritates me how much /co/ gets all weirded out by wanting to top or dominate anything.
Oh sure, we'll talk to death about the cutesy shit we'll do to monsters and furry stealth posts, but suddenly I'M the crazy one for not wanting some communion wafer of a sub, and actually want to top a girl who's bossy and beefy and could actually fight back?
Why does male sadism freak everyone out?
>> No. 390350
Well I can't give you an answer for everyone, but in my case the main problem is how difficult it is to tell when you're dealing with the sort of sadist who wants a partner who is fully on board with the sado-masochism thing, who uses a safeword and doesn't do anything that his partner's GENUINELY not comfortable with, and the kind who is just hateful and wants to actually hurt people who don't want it.

And obviously, when you talk about your fantasies, you don't mention all the normal domestic stuff like agreeing to safewords and having frank talks about where either person's boundaries are, you just talk about the "exciting" parts--the domination and the inflicting of pain. Which is fine--no one else talks about that sort of thing when they talk about THEIR fantasies. No one who talks about their three-way fantasies talks about searching for someone both of the normal partners trust to bring into the relationship and agreeing beforehand how they're going to address the situation after the threesome is over, after all. But with sadism, your fantasies sound a lot scarier to someone who doesn't hear that stuff--it makes you sound like a person who's a danger to other people.

So what I'm getting at is: if you're a responsible BDSM guy, I've got no problem with your fetish at all. That shit's between you and your partner, and wouldn't be any of my business even if I *did* object. But when I'm hearing from some nameless, faceless internet goon about how bad he wants to hurt and debase another human being (or whatever, if we're talking fictional characters), the empathetic side of me is always going to object to that, and begin to fear that real people might be in danger.
>> No. 390351
I guess. It could be my explanations, I get a little less restrained in my descriptions when I talk outright fantasy. Gogo's not a real character so my more aggressive parts of the fetish don't require real restraint. I'm not so empathic about her as I would be a real girl. A girl I had more of a real relationship it more pops up with just having a sense of control over stuff that has more social barriers and normalcy to just do yourself. Hairbrushing, teethbrushing, sitting her down and exploring her face methodically, the "I don't care that you're not comfortable with it, I'm having fun so be quiet" sort of control. Of course there's pre-determined consent to all of that and any sort of real BDSM we try.

With fictional girls though, I don't feel a need to go 'well I gotta get her consent'. She's fake, there's no rules, why not just get wild? Rape and actual fighting for sexual control don't need consent from a fantasy on paper, so why get all concerned about a drawn figment? Maybe that's it, I already decided none of these people are real, so any real rules about what you can and can't do to them in fantasy are silly.
>> No. 390352
If I had to guess, they're just not that fucked up in the head? Not considering these "rules" as something inconvenient and stuff.
>> No. 390355
Maybe you should just stop shitposting in /co/ about your weaty erections, it would stop the board from being the pure shit it actually is. I'm fucking tired of being unable to read anything else that neckbeards erection reports in a board supposedly about comics and cartoon. It's all about what make you hot and who you want to fuck these days. Fuck you and your kind.
>> No. 390367
I kind of get that, that's sort of the reason hentai initially appealed; they're not real, therefor there's more of a variance, and you don't have to worry so much about the particulars. Which is kind of the appeal of porn, and regular porn made me feel weird at first because I wondered how those girls got to where they were.

But now I'm kinda with >>390355
For every "How do we make such and such a show better?" thread, it seems like there's like 3 or so "muh dick", "would you eat her farts?" or "Lion-o should've ended up with Wilykit". And I know it's 4chan and all but like, the dudes who are actually really seriously into that are really fucked up. No topic too taboo, but if you are stockpiling CP and Loli, you got fucking issues, man, the least of which is the Party Van. It seems like that's scaled down as of late but there's still some of those motherfuckers, and a lot of the general opinion is just to let it be. Still, that shit takes over something like the Thundercats reboot threads and it's like "go outside for a year and don't get on a computer you motherfuckers"

Would it be so bad if it was the end? You can't talk about anything on their proper boards except whatever the hivemind dictates is ok. /pol/fags, SJWs and trolls pretending to be them shit up countless threads and now "casual racism" on 4chan is a thing of the past. People don't lurk moar. People don't even attempt to find out what things are before asking for sauce, they don't even use GIS. We can't have 4chancup threads because of advertisement but constant Youtube celeb threads are ok.

Maybe it's time for 4chan to die off.
>> No. 391428
Or maybe it is time to realize that all communities, digital or not, go through phases of shit. And you either stop complaining and wait it out until it gets better, or lose your patience and leave.

Here's the catch though: if you chose the second option every time, you won't be a part of any community.

That other image still doesn't make sense, I think, because if Redwood is now a janitor, it had to have happened somewhat recently.

Also, whatever it's worth, I can't say that I mind fetish threads being removed. 4chan has boards for that, and /co/ isn't one of them.

I feel that's applicable to the whole internet. Remember all these geocities fan shrines? I mean they were terrible and all, but that shit hardly exists anymore. Everyone's a goddamn cynic these days and the internet is turning more and more colorless and spiteful.
>> No. 391606
I think you can blame the lack of fansites on things like free hosting sites shutting down or people moving over to blogs or whatever.

That being said, you have a point on people being positive about shit. There's a definite balance to maintain here. You don't have to show unwavering support to everything, but the idea that everything is shit and everything coming out will be shit is annoying.

Those sites were so messy, but you could tell people put a lot of heart into them. Found some really obscure stuff on those.
>> No. 391611
This is something I noticed about other people and myself as well:

The less of a life you have, the less you make real achievements IRL, the less you do actual positive work, the less productive you are... the more cynical and apathetic you become. Your mood is directly linked to how much you achieve IRL. It doesn't has to be a job, just some work you do each day. It doesn't matter what work that is, as long as you're busy doing something productive.

Basically, all the grumpy cynics on the web do not have lives.
>> No. 391612
>Your mood is directly linked to how much you achieve IRL.
yeah, no. Most people are extremely happy and proud to be unachieving consuming devices. And people who do great aren't especially more happy because most of the time they don't benefit from it directly anyway.

Was 4chan always this bad or did it became a repository for human garbage only recently?
>> No. 391632
4chan was always a repository for human garbage but with that Chanology thing, the rise of Reddit, and other things like /b/ vs ponies, 4chan has become more popular. And popular means more people and more people mean more idiots, assholes, and whiny entitled bastards. And on top of that, many of the old guard has left and these new people tend to act like the Jerry Springer audience.
>> No. 391633
garbage changed with time, tough. Most people today consider aggressivity "garbage", despite it being a stapple of 4chan for half a decade. Same with memespam and stupid shoops. What people consider good was garbage not even 6 month ago, and is likely to become garbage again in 3 month.
>> No. 391637
I'd say it's recently.

I don't ever remember people going off on /pol/ tangents about blacks, jews, women, and gays back in the day. The jokes were there, but it wasn't this constant "derail everything and look at these charts" bullshit that persists today.

Also, whatever it's worth, that shit was mostly contained on /b/.

And you also have this new generation of Anons who try to treat 4chan as the wild west of the internet, a lawless place where literally anything goes. Now while 4chan is more liberal with their set of rules than other websites are, it's never been this complete "lawless" territory as people try to think it is. I assume this is part of the reason you have so much rampant shitposting and people posting things on the wrong boards intentionally, despite the fact the only two things you can't post anywhere on 4chan are CP (due to it being illegal) and pony porn (due to drama). There's a place for most (legal) things on 4chan but people are determined to put them in the wrong spots.

File 139952099214.jpg - (99.77KB , 640x960 , BnEir66IgAEOuTO.jpg )
I respectfully disagree. Phrasing it like gay people don't like fun or how they're trying no to make a statement with the game (when excluding it is making a statement) isn't the best way to handle it. I know the matter is mostly out of Nintendo of America's hands, but they didn't really handle the situation right today.

And considering Nintendo said they're looking into Western trends to appeal to the outside market, adding gay marriage as an option would be nice. If they could pump out cash to censor games, then they could throw in a few more to add stuff in.

The whole situation is just a painful reminder how conservative and out of touch Nintendo is.
>> No. 391648
>(when excluding it is making a statement)

Excluding gay relationships in games is making a statement now? I thought that was just the default way of doing things.

The issue isn't Nintendo, but Japan itself. It's one thing if it's a game made in America, but in Japan, same-sex relationships are *very* frowned upon. This is the same country that treats women like total objects. It WOULD be making a statement and inviting controversy from their own country if they did this, and I don't think Nintendo is in any position to do something like that. Yeah, maybe they dance around the issue by saying "We just want to make fun games" like usual, but it's true. Changing the status quo when you're a Japanese country is a scary thing to do.
>> No. 391650
>I thought that was just the default way of doing things.

Therein lies the problem.

Hypothetically, could they have just gotten some Westerners to code it in and let it be in the NA version of the game? Keep in mind I say this as someone who doesn't know much about the game aside from what I've read and also someone who didn't help code it.

Also, yeah I ain't surprised to hear that about Japan. That place is pretty fucked up for a country of its status.
>> No. 391653
I think the problem is that options are options, and people should get in massive butthurt mode every time a game doesn't have an option they want, being relevant to recent life heavily mediatic and artificial buzz like gay marriage is jsut bad imo, it's like complaining a game from 2 years didn't have a gangnam style option.

the buzz around it was just that. Nobody was giving a shit before, and it's still a dying institution for straight people, but at the moment they involved gay people, peolpe acted like hipsters discussin a recent cape movie and pretended their whole life depended on it. The amount of slippery slope and non sequitur argument it generated was closer to a /pol/ thread than anything else. And now nobody gives a shit anymore because the buzz is over and the TV told people the new hotness is Ukraine and Russia.
People don't have values or opinion anymore, they just want to fit the current buzz to be cool.
