1 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2008-01-31 23:12 ID:3c4lKt+K

It is obvious that it is becoming easier and easier to acquire anything digital, no matter how obscure, yet I feel the need of keeping everything good I can downloaded illegally.

While I know this isn't gonna happen anytime soon, I always have this fear that the copyright age wasn't the anomaly - that instead the p2p age was the anomaly, and that the lobbies will eventually wise up and find real ways to destroy the internet.
Of course it's an irrational fear - I know perfectly well that in 20 years, absolutely every file that has ever existed will be incredibly easy to find and downloadable at ridiculously fast speeds.

But I still can't stop hoarding and backupping. I need to get it through my mind once and for all that if I was able to download it once, I will definitely be able to download it in 50 years.
Any fellow copyright infringer having the same problem?

19 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2008-03-08 14:38 ID:NdwRFb+v

Hmm, I have the opposite problem... a lot of stuff I've decided not to download at some point, or have deleted thinking "I need space and I can always get it again later", I've never been able to find since.

But I'm into a lot of obscure stuff.

Also, some of it wasn't pirated, but was like legally free indie music where the band's site went down etc. Though there's some CDs I didn't snatch on OiNK that are probably a lost cause now.

20 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2008-03-24 02:43 ID:sa7bqqjM

Nah... I would keep hoarding. HD space is only going to get cheaper, but those things the OP says might be around later, really won't. Fads come and go, will you be able to find Iosys albums 20 years from now? I don't know, but somehow I doubt it.

Internets, and digital media in general, are far from permanent. You post your ads up on the post, and read them before the weather or disinterest destroy them.

I hoard porn, a lot of it. I have a seperate CD folder packed with it. This way I can watch what I want, whenever I want and never have to suffer a pixelated Redtube vid or the waiting for a poorly seeded torrent.
If the government ever does properly crack down on piracy there's always newsgroups.

Miscellaneous Textboard Discussion (10)

1 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2020-02-26 04:08 ID:NNhE8Ssg

I have a lot of interest in this topic, but I came way too late to the scene for the full history on text boards. My question is, was there ever an English-language text board that rivaled the fast boards on 2channel? Also, is there a good resource to learn about places like world2ch? If not, perhaps it's a good idea to work on a collaborative resource to preserve this history before it's lost.

Not to say text-only sites are dead though. I made my own the other day (can I link it?), but without a pool to draw users from, I have no idea how these sites can find activity in this day and age. What do you think?

Of course not, 2channel was literally the most popular BBS in the world, western forums and all included, despite only being Japanese. is probably the only fast-pased western textboard and it's not even English.

5 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2020-02-28 01:53 ID:NNhE8Ssg

9 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2020-05-02 02:41 ID:0bFQuiI4

Just going by what's claimed on Wikipedia, PTT's peak is apparently 500,000 posts a day while 2ch gets 2.5 million a day. That's a big gap. No idea if that info is reliable though, lol Wikipedia.

Taiwan has 24 million people while Japan has 126 million. I think that would make it hard for them to be in the same league unless Taiwanese people are vastly more online/into textboards than Japanese people, or mainlanders dodging the firewall and the Chinese diaspora love using PTT.

Also, motherfucking TELNET? Seriously?

People who use 4chan/internet memes in real life are annoying! (168)

1 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2007-04-12 04:55 ID:nHPXhNR7 basically sums my thoughts up perfectly.

It's so annoying to have a conversation with someone and then they say something like "orly?" or "my pokemans let me show you them" (WORST FUCKING MEME EVER) or "it's over 9000 (TIED FOR WORST FUCKING MEME EVER)" or "winnar" or "teh" or "desu" or anything. God damn. I want to punch them in the mouth, then in the throat. Then break their ankles so they can't follow me as I walk away to somewhere with people who don't use Internet jokes in non-Internet conversations.

people need to realize that /b/ is not cool or "badass" at all

its sick and disgusting. if you were anything like the true /b/tards of 4-5 years ago, you deserve to be wiped from the earth or put into a mental asylum. society looks down on you sick fucks. you should all die or better yet just seriously kill yourself. society doesn't need degenerates like you. I'm not talking about those "new" /b/tards who make themselves known, I'm talking about the old true /b/tards who deep down inside want to rape and mutilate a baby. you all need to be locked away for good. the new /b/tards though. they're just annoying but pose no actual threat to society.

so if you think you're "badass" for being /b/ and want to make it known, think again about what /b/ really is (or rather was) and then think how life in an insane asylum with strange doctors analyzing your FUBAR mind for the rest of your life sounds like.

there's my view on it. and I came to 4chan's /b/ at around 2-3 years ago, but I moved out of it to /v/. Good thing, I could have been corrupted on the inside to the point of no return and one day become a psychopathic child rapist/killer.

tl;dr: you're not cool for being a /b/tard, you're a sick degenerate fuck who doesn't deserve to live in today's society.

all because they thought it was going to die. moot makes bank from his huge traffic and ads. theres no way he would actually get rid of the board that generates the most ad revenue.

so whats sadder. that they can't tell it's a bluff, or that they only start winnign when they thinkg it's dying. which makes it sort of fail

4chan Captcha M E L T D O W N (19)

1 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2017-07-26 03:18 ID:nhn1GKJs

4chan's recaptcha system has totally gone off the rails. Fucking "keep picking until all are gone" with pics of cars etc motherfucking SLOWLY appearing in geological, agonizing time and enjoy page after page of these fucking garbage captchas to make a single wretched post.

Is this a government operation to destroy 4chan? Recaptcha trying to harness the human dark side, the id, fueled by captcha rage to power their machine learning algorithms, like the fucking Matrix? Are the Japanese that greedy that they would sink to this to get paid memberships?

Whatever the reasons, it is diabolical.

Firstly, the captcha is provided by Google, so, of all the people you should complain to, it ought to be them. And I don't mean that 4chan shouldn't be the subject of criticism; but I don't think criticizing Hiro for Captcha itself makes sense. A better criticism would be 4chan's using Google's Captcha in the first place.

Furthermore, it's still feasible to use legacy captcha on 4chan. In fact, the only reason this is feasible is because 4chan was grandfathered in, so you should be grateful of that.

To elaborate, it is feasible to, with the assistance of a userscript such as 4chanX, force both legacy and noscript catcha when replying to a thread on 4chan. This isn't applicable to OP's and reports, mind you, but for the vast majority of my posting on 4chan, I've only ever been filling out the more keyboard-friendly legacy Captcha that Google provides, and it only takes a second.

I do think it's valid to complain about Captcha on 4chan, but OP is absolutely clueless.

14 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2017-09-20 18:12 ID:Heaven

I've found that using audio to type in numbers is much quicker and easier to do than waiting for pictures of cars to disappear. The problem I find is that it's not just 4chan that uses the new google captcha. Some websites have it for access or downloading of files.
