tor is perpetually banned on zzz and mods crossboard to delete any discussion of site/board moderation (and leave botspam links up lel). Meanwhile, literal pedo rings that were kicked off of 8moe and boards with owner-made links to honeypot discords (e.g. fascist, k) are left unmolested.
>what site you primarily frequent/"belong" to
zzz, finally gave up on it recently. Used to use smug for /yuri/, but that's been completely gone for quite a while now.
>why you use that site and not the other
You can't post on 8moe, it's not an imageboard. It's literally an account based pseudonymous site - redditchan really has come full circle. In that sense it really is the proper successor of 8ch. 8/u/ isn't a yuri board, either.
Smug's owner died in suspicious circumstances several years ago and /yuri/ eventually caught the pox from that rotting corpse, but before that the reason I don't post on smug in general is because /a/ is shit. /jp/ has been completely fine this whole time (scattered around the web) and /a/ has only just died now from getting involved with this centralization faggotry but of course the board was always shit.
>what you really think about "the others"
Smug and zzzchan are owned by literal glowniggers at this point. Which I'm fine with, but they're also unusably bad due to employing
faggots to run boards rather than having someone who cares about the subject run a site. Cafe and sparts are run by autistic retards, but cafemin's E.X. autism is way more tolerable than dudder's E.X. retardation, which has made the site borderline unusable (there are about 300 0second autobans you have to click through to make a post from an exit node, the onyo is perpetually banned despite contributing about 0.1% of the botspam) if you practice any kind of opsec.
I don't think about 8moe because it's not an imageboard. Like it has good content sometime the users don't seem all retarded but I'm not gonna fuckin post on funnyjunk either am I?
>if you really think the gap between user bases is too large to be overcome at this point, and why or why not
Why the fuck would you want to overcome a gap between the userbases? Anyone who actually gives a shit about who owns a site or whatever other eceleb trite is a faggot and a retard, perhaps professionally so.
>what you would like to do to solve it
Anyone who cares about a particular board should host their own site. This is, and always has been, the obvious solution. If you don't want to deal with botspam then make it tor-only.
