Default Re: 4chan - Why has no one shut down that site?

I think one of the girls I used to hang with was involved with it. She would use the "lulz" all the time and was was obbessed with "lolcatz". I only read the Wikipedia page on it, I dont want to go there. And the way she acted sometimes now make me wonder.

4Chan is a large forum for just about any topic. All the categories are named by letters, and they're all moderated / have rules... EXCEPT for /B/

/b/ is what 4Chan is renowned for. It is the random forum, and anyone can post anything, the only rule being no child pornography.

4Chan gave birth to all the internet memes we know and love. Lolcats, Rickrolling, Chocolate Rain, you name it. Hundreds of 4Chan members even logged into Habbo Hotel with afros and suits on, blocking the public pool entrances saying "POOLS CLOSED" - this has become fairly popular in internet culture too. This is why it's sometimes known as the "Asshole of the internet". If you go there you'll work through a lot of disgusting porn and the like before you find things actually funny but 4chan is pretty integral to the geek culture today.

Don't know why it hasn't been shut down but personally, I wouldn't like to see it shut down. I don't visit it, but there's constantly new memes coming but that are somehow linked with 4chan. And the members seem to have some sense - after someone posted pictures on /b/ of his cats being tortured, all the other regulars managed to track him down and report him to the police; i think it was on the news.

Heard of it; Never cared because they probably didn't have a hardware section. Actually, part of my avatar originated from 4chan if I remember.

I like Rickroll. Man was I fooled when I searched WoW on Youtube... Got rickrolled twice in a row...

In my mind, animal cruelty is worse than child pornography.

Actually...http://zip.4chan.org/g/imgboard.html - That's a technology board....

4chan isn't all bad. As other have said - if you shut it down, your going to have to shut down another 10... and if you shut those 10 down, another 100 will spring up.

The "CP" is swiftly deleted by moderators... and TBH, not *THAT* much happens. Sure, some of them may arm their LOIC's (google it), but it's not the website that encourages that, it's the people that use the site...

It can be funny too, sometimes

Wow you have no idea. You obviously didn't read things right. /b/ stands against animal cruelty.
