Anon 04/19/2021 (Mon) 19:59:06 No.4215
Why has 8kun become a haven for depraved degenerates (NSFW boards)? Has it always been like that? >Pic for asthetics.
>>4215 8kun has been linked to some wicked things. Which caused it to go offline and be rebranded as 8kun. It was formerly known as 8chan. So far, anon.cafe is the only imageboard I have seen that has more sfw boards than nsfw... I feel like this imageboard is the best if you’re looking for sfw content.
>>4216 > I feel like this imageboard is the best if you’re looking for sfw content. Agreed, Anon. It's nice to be here.
>>4216 Word.
>>4215 >become Its selling point was 'free speech' plus 'make your own board', similar to the earlier masterchan which was a porn and pedo haven. Those two selling points are absolute bait for people who want to post things seen as unacceptable or not worthy of a board on other sites. /furry/ or /fur/ wood have been one of the first popular boards forever along with a pony porn one and a proto-/aco/ with a loli offshoot. Politics wasn't the front-seat driver until gamergate.
>>4225 I see... Sure, free speech is a wonderful thing. But all things have their limits. 8kun has taken a great leap over this limit. Let me tell ya, haven't seen depraved people until you browse /random/ and /pnd/ on 8kun... And for the record, I fully agree with >>4216 . I too have never seen an imageboard where the majority of the boards are sfw. Looks like the concept of imageboards isn't lost after all :) anon.cafe is the best imageboard imo.
>>4215 Imageboards have always been filled with "degenerates." Look at all the pedophiles who used to be on 8chan. They didn't spring up out of thin air either. They go way back in 4chan's history.
>>4227 >They go way back in 4chan's history. They ARE 4chan's history. >>4226 >free speech I put the quotes around it for a reason, almost no website is actually for complete free speech, and the ones that are are flooded with child pornography spam from robots reading imageboard lists. >Let me tell ya, haven't seen depraved people until you browse /random/ and /pnd/ on 8kun... With all due respect, you sound berry new if that's your benchmark for imageboard depravity. Not that it's a bad thing, it's not. Anyway, it's good to have a small array of slow, comfy imageboards (even it it's only comfy to you) such as anon.cafe. The sfw overboard is always nice. There's a few other comfy boards I've found, but they're for niche interests and not strictly sfw, even if lewd and politics are rare. Lainchan is a case worth mentioning of a large site where they strictly ban pornography and try to avoid low effort posts, although occasionally people start controversial /pol/itical threads on the /r/ and /hum/ boards so I woodn't yet call it fully-comfy.

>>4229 *note: 'they' was referring to "degenerates", not pedophiles, but /b/ was known for having a few of them too.
>>4226 >But all things have their limits "Soft" limits should be placed on personal values of the poster and its peers, usually they stand in the way of questionable things before any official rules. Enforcing rules before knowing the visible limits of your fellow posters is a harsh approach because some might push the jokes but actually berry rarely go the full way. >8kun That place is really a berry different boat since we left, i roamed tons of niche boards before and the only one i remember being over the top was the one with the furries (the ones with the real farm animals), i suppose someone advertised the new rebrand in many wrong places and a bunch went there along with the people who didn't care about the history of the site in terms of integrity and suspicion regarding some decisions and priorities chosen. Also pedos/hebes, like anon said, is 4chan history because to be completely frank many underage posters (which were a good chunk in the intermediate years) didn't feel the legal heat for looking at jailbait because they were basically the same age, of course some rowdy fellows looked at it in the mid-20s but the thing becomes questionable when it's 30/40yos doing it, the others were just adventurous people who liked to push the limits. Let's remember too that in the mid to late 00s it was still relatively easy to stumble upon it in the open internet, nowadays you wood have to guesstimate in amateur video sites and recently some have started culling content for the same reason, hebe was ironically not a big deal until around 2008/2009 when the thumbnail sites became replaced with the video streaming ones, the real actual pedo stuff was around until 2003-5 or so. Not justifying, just explaining the context that back then it was seemingly more common (still somewhat controversial tho).
>>4229 > With all due respect, you sound berry new if that's your benchmark for imageboard depravity. Not that it's a bad thing, it's not. Indeed, I am new. I have heard about imageboards and their concept before but I haven’t used one seriously until recently. I am surprised to hear that 8kun is pretty tame when it comes to depravity compared to others. Imagine what vile things exists on other boards if that is the case....
>>4232 >Imagine what vile things exists on other boards if that is the case.... Most of them were pretty comfortable to use actually, it's just that many of us are jaded enough to get past all that content but not that depraved to stay there due to various reasons. It was a strange vibe to be fair, i can't blame the general populace for considering most of its users outcasts, but after all this place was formed by the more sane bunch of them, not to mention there's plenty anons here who got their teeth cut in the classic days before things really went downhill. For example the problem with the big IBs is not so much the strong content but the lack of discernible discussion, back then things were also foul mouthed and trolling was usual but you could find discernible bits of discussion often, nowadays it's all filled with vitriol and/or mindless posting. Here it's berry normal to find people discussing normally but there's not many users, if we take things into a balance i think you could find the same amount of entertainment and sociably agreements here than in the big places with absurd amounts of posting more.
>>4235 >nowadays it's all filled with vitriol and/or mindless posting. this is incorrect. you don't have to search long to find actual discussion even on 4chan.
>>4236 Depends, my idea of discussion is complete one-twos argumenting an idea with a couple of anons interjecting with info. So far in my last and berry short escapades there in /vr/, /the one with the 3d modelling/, /x/, and /p/ it is rare to see those daily, of course you can find them but you have to swim in seas of trashy posts and sometimes you won't see them until a couple of days later AND to be fair it is even rarer to see them end with an agreement on something, it usually finishes with tirades. Also, not to be rude, but compliment posts akin to "i liek criket - me 2 budy" / "X thing is good - it is, nice taste bro" are not discussions, they are mere echos, facades that may fool a couple in boards like /vr/, for example.
>>4235 Looks like I'm staying on anon.cafe then. I like it here :)
>>4243 Enjoy your stay anon!
I dunno, anon. Will we ever get a good chan board? probably not.
>>4249 We are on one.
>>4250 I love anon.cafe for the general discussion and comfiness but I miss some of the more niche boards I browsed on older imageboards that don't get enough traffic or don't exist on the Webring. I'm happy for the boards that managed to stay together through all the turmoil of the last couple years but sometimes when I'm lurking the Webring I feel like an ignored old man just sitting in the corner whose time has passed.
>>4270 >I feel like an ignored old man just sitting in the corner whose time has passed. That's normal, plenty of people feel like that because plenty of places lose their momentum and fame. In our case it's double the punch because we never went with identities for others to search us later, a reunion akin to many bullet boards did some years ago is almost nigh impossible but don't lose hope just yet, after all we are more than 10 right? so it's more of a small shack of friends rather than an old man waiting.
There is a /comfy/ board on 8kun. Is it related to anon.cafe or completely separate?
>>4300 8kun is a berry uncomfy place so I doubt it
>>4300 This board is separate from all other boards anywhere and has nothing to do with anything.
8 kun is glowneighbour haven you must be nuts to still go there

>>4215 Many chans with NSFW majority boards are like that. Even the small offshoot 8chan.moe has the same problem, what's worse is that there is a board there called /loli/ which is child p... Like >>4216 said, anoncafe is one of the few normal and bearable IBs left. So, basically, if you want a good IB experience, stay here. It doesn't get better than this, op.

>>4348 I genuinely don't understand how they even operate while getting constant cp spam. Are 8ch and variants all honeypots or ipfarms of some sort?
>>4349 I do not know, and frankly, it should be irrelevant to us. We should steer clear and far away from boards where degenerates and reprobates live. Any imageboard that has a board called /b/, /random/, or anything in like manner should be one of the first red flags to pop up in the head of a normal man. Because encounters with dogs are not likely. They are imminent.

>>4349 I don't get it either. I remember 8chan used to get people spamming cheese pizza sites so often that I left temporarily until things got better. I have no objections to most forms of "degeneracy," but things like CP and zoosadism go far beyond that in the sense that they involve clear cases of harm. Pedos seem to frequently test the waters to see what they can get away with (loli art, clothed child models, etc.), and I really woodn't have any objection to going scorched earth on them if such a thing is possible without blowback. Unfortunately, I could see such an action as being more like kicking a kiddie-diddler beehive than being an effective solution to the problem.
>>4348 > So, basically, if you want a good IB experience, stay here. It doesn't get better than this, op. Anon speaks truly.
You know what I dislike the most? Dramahobbitry. It doesn't matter if you take any side and if you believe what you think is right, you're succesfully causing ship on a community when it doesn't call out for it. If you get off being a dishonest piece of ship, sure keep posting in these threads, if the BO wants to keep people who just straight out slander on the internet and pull fake accusations up their ass, let him have this thread stay up. You fags make the cessspit known as 4chan even more tolerable than here, how many obscure boards with less than 10 posters have to lurk to no longer bother with you anymore. You know who I'm talking to, so don't try to pull my legs here. Truck you for getting me mad on the /comfy/ board, guess it's just as ship as eberrything that appeared after 8chan died, a beheaded hydra head with the vipers eating each other.
rest
>>4378 Who has slandered what? Also, you are free to leave and not come back.
>>4378 don't act like 4chan is any better in this scenario. it's probably worse
BO, please lock/delete this thread. I fear that it will spiral out of control if it continues.
>>4378 In 4cham eberryone is going at each other's neck all the time, don't lie about it, and that includes sites and boards they "oppose". If anything here some anons just go umbrella and put eberryone on a single bag and call it a day. >>4351 >loli art >CP I can understand the logic but there's still several generations among us who think otherwise, for starters the whole 2D/fictional portraits in unrealistic style vs. the real deal/3D. It's a slippery slope, we can argue that nothing of high value will be lost banning all the horny loli content but then anime violence also becomes real violence including portrayals of mutilation and without noticing it things like Dragon Ball, or your shounen of choice that involves fights, are also banned for guro because someone got their arm chopped or they are bleeding profusely. I think, like i said before, users should push content not well liked out of their way via posting/discomfort instead of an authority deciding it. If it is not illegal then there's nothing to it other than userbase customs, even a BO should stick to it even if he doesn't like it at all. See /x/ here, the BO banned loli and out of nowhere eberryone fled despite not a single picture of a fictional kid doing questionable things had been posted there (and no reason for it if the existing threads were a clue), it's an illusion of freedom and doing anything that people want that make them like IBs in the first place, even when they will rarely do anything like that at some point.
this isn't comfy at all...
>>4384 Let people talk
Alright, Anon. Fair...
>>4348 >anoncafe is one of the few normal and bearable IBs left. So, basically, if you want a good IB experience, stay here. It doesn't get better than this, op. Affirmative. >>4350 >Any imageboard that has a board called /b/, /random/, or anything in like manner should be one of the first red flags to pop up in the head of a normal man. Because encounters with dogs are not likely. They are imminent. Based.
>>4215 8kun is what you get when you want a forum with little to no moderation. This is why the page was taken down and become rebranded.

>>4424 Okay
>>4225 >Politics wasn't the front-seat driver until gamergate. I can't help but wonder how 8chan wood have wound up were it not for /pol/ Harbor and the subsequent exodus. I mean, there was a political presence during GG, but it wasn't until moot did that timerless/captchaless posting thing on /pol/ that they all started running to 8. I'm honestly convinced moot did this for that purpose, to help the anti-GG side associate their enemy with nazis. Perhaps that's what got him his job at Google. Without that exodus, I bet the only political presence wood have just been from the "tired of extremists ruining my hobbies" crowd. There'd be no meddling from people trying to cultivate their next scapegoat. All the worthwhile boards like /late/ and /comfy/ wood have stuck around (although that'd also mean no webring).
BO PLEASE READ THIS Sorry, I know this is slightly off topic but the load time on /comfy/ is being slowed down because in the CSS you have links to media hosted on 8kun, which is so laughably broken you might as well not have it included in the CSS at all. Just thought I'd give you a heads up.
>>4431 I read all the posts, no need to shout.
>>4409 Disagree, it was taken down after a couple of manufactured controversies, not because its lack of moderation (which is true in the smaller boards, not really in the big ones which had overmoderation)
>>4215 Lovely pic, op!
>>4436 I feel like a forum in which the only rules are no porn and no political discussion wood work well. It seems like those two things are what end up ruining eberrything in the long run.
