Just because Furby and George Monks are retarded doesn't mean CF should be shut down.




Also - a lot of you guys read the media "reports" on 4chan way too closely. A lot of that is BS taken out of context, only representative of a VERY small percentage of the people who visit 4chan, etc.

Uhhh... yeah.. That bear is called "Phedobear" and people who post that are either trying to be funny or are real Pedophiles.
So if you think pedophilia is funny or you are one yourself.. I suggest changing it.

I'm not trying to be rude.. Just letting you know before you give off the wrong image.

Scroll up I posted where the ping comes from. Yes I suppose it could be a bounce server. But still. That is the IP.

207.126.64.166(4chan.org)

Postal Code: 93650
Country: UNITED STATES

EDIT:
Just did a ping and it's still the same IP. (207.126.64.166)

Did A ping on there img server, img.4chan.org (207.126.64.181). Results are the same place, as you can tell just by looking at the subnets.

I know they have topics and then you can comment on the topic.
But it's displayed as a single page of multiple open topics.
I just don't see the logical order of it. Beside the different / / there pretty much is no order.
It's based on Japanese image boards. The topics are also not completely open on the main page. They show a few posts in the thread for each topic. If you want to keep track of something, you have to open the thread in a new tab/window.

There was a video of some kid abusing a cat really bad. A bunch of 4chan users helped track the kid down and report him to the police.
