Erischan is chugging along alright, even if slowly, and generally keeping out the boring generic junk. As for the roots:
>there was an /eris/ - Discordianism on old 8chan
>some pope sets up erischan.org to continue the board
>turns out there used to be Polish board about fifty years ago called Erischan and so we keep getting random poles.
If the meaning was any deeper, humanity wood drown. Never again!
