    Think "ironic" racism and teenagers trying to be edgy mixed in with real racism, all of it barely moderated.

    This is the best thread title ever. My mind is indeed keeping my morons on check. My ducks, on the other hand, are all over the fucking place.

    It’s almost too perfect that the 4Chan goons ranking the races based on skull shapes are also touting Topping DACs as the peak of audio quality.

    So from what you guys are saying, 4chan is where god farms the virgins for the martyrs who reach paradise?

    I've seen many, many fucked up things on the internet going back to sites like LittleMidgets (thankfully long defunct) back when I was a kid in the early noughties, which probably explains why I'm kinda fucked in the head, but I've never made a 4chan account. To say that people are free to do whatever they want is pretty accurate, so you get some stuff that makes a municipal sewer floor look clean enough to eat off.

    That said, there's some good people on there too. No idea how they ended up there. Maybe they're being held under duress.

    I vote to ban all randos from starting new threads until trophy points >= 13. Too many dead-end inflammatory threads lately.

    Has a true rando ever started a worthwhile thread?

    In the Flash-era (especially during 56k Modem time and first years of decent WiFi) Newgrounds was a hub and portal to many strange things. This was before the 2010s.

    After digging too much I gave up. Accept that there will be weird shit you do not understand. It makes the world a wonderful place and in doubt, 42.

    I spent a lot of time on NewGrounds way back. Found out about Neurotically Yours through there, which I still sometimes watch on YouTube (they're still making new episodes, which is impressive).

    Life's too short to try and make sense of people on 4chan. Not surprising when you mix online disinhibition and an atmosphere that actively encourages asshattery.

    I think that "encourages asshattery" downplays the fact that they strongly promote racism (not just casual racism, but the full-blown type that would make Hitler proud) and misogyny, and coordinate online harassment campaigns that extend into real life, particularly against women. I guess maybe you could count driving the pedos off to 8chan as a mark in their favor, but that's like saying that you always shit on the floor in public restrooms, although one time you managed to use the toilet.

    Please don't bring more politics onto SBAF. Discussing 4chan is political in nature.

    I think this thread can be locked. @zerodeefex

    Not gonna refute anything you've said, it's all true. I should probably keep in mind that playing with understatement may sometimes end up making something seem less categorically evil than it actually is— my apologies. The place really is just fucked, though.

    Did not think 4chan was political, but I'll defer to others' judgement.

    I'm not sure how discussing 4chan is political, but I'll admit that paying them any attention is too much, so will refrain in the future.

    Before you do that: we need to add some silliness for good measure.



    Thank you NewGrounds. This will always be funny.
