There's no more spam on this board, but the real question is whether this site is even worth existing since a board like this one, Internet Addicts, exists, and this board overlaps the content on The Society for the Study of Modern Imageboard Culture entirely.

Organizing Images (2)

1 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2015-07-21 22:47 ID:JRwHA+3J

How does everyone do it?

For me, I divide the images in to folders that are like boards, so, I have a lounge folder and a hobby folder and so on.
As for how I name the images, they're named by the site I found them on. For example, if I save two images from Wakachan, I name them "Waka1" and "Waka2". If I'm on Horochan, and I save two images that are related to eachother, I might name them something like "Horo1-1" and "Horo1-2".

2 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2015-07-22 01:10 ID:hIlO+zpH

Currently I just have an img/ directory. I have a 2D/ one too, but it's on an inaccessible drive.

I generally don't bother renaming them.

This is one of the weird feels that I get sitting in my dark room late at night while browsing 4-ch. Seeing a post from 2006 or 2007 is not uncommon on some boards, and it feels incredibly weird to know that that poster's world and life has progressed 7 or 8 years by now. Where are they now? What are they doing? Are they still here?

Also, it spooks me that there are people who lurked, or even posted here, that are now dead. I am sharing a website with people who are now skeletons or ashes.

It's weird, man.

I wish every text/imageboard in existence was more active, but nowhere near as fast as present-day 4chan.

but why would I post on a website like this that takes almost literally several months before I get a reply?

I know. It's the weirdest feeling

this is honestly my first time being on here
and coming from lainchan and 8chan, EVERYTHING just feels drastically different

At some point in the future 4ch will have a small opinion or discussion on all topics and people can search through them

Pedophilia discussion thread. (10)

1 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2015-04-05 22:34 ID:rQ9/ImZF

We do not choose to be attracted to children, and we cannot make that attraction go away. But we can resist the temptation to abuse children sexually, and many of us present no danger to children whatsoever. Yet we are despised for having a sexual attraction that we did not choose, cannot change, and successfully resist.

2 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2015-04-18 11:33 ID:nw0pj2Lo

There are a lot of negative connotations associated with the word 'pedophile'. When people think of the word 'pedophile', they think of a creepy middle-aged man who assaults children sexually, while in reality it defines someone who has a preference to people who are in the age range of 9 to 13.

There have been so many cases of pedophiles sexually abusing children, that people overlook the pedophiles who wouldn't hurt a fly and love children in a way that surpasses sexual urges.

When I was 12 I was attracted to 12 year olds, and I still am today. Why should my preferences adapt to older women as I grow older myself?

3 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2015-04-19 20:55 ID:5QqtylDM

I could see how this would be web related, as pedophelia ingrained in otaku culture, and net culture, thereby. But I can't help but feel as this might be more fitting on the politics board. At any rate, I guess this board is fine.

As far back as I can recall, any discussion with people who are openly pedophiles, I think, very rarely comes off as sane to me. I don't mean to distinguish myself from pedophiles, and I don't really condemn that state of mind, but people like that always strike me as perverse and wantonly. As >>2 demonstrates, there is a sense of self-awareness, but overall, people in that mindset seem quixotic.
As >>2 mentions, there's a negative connotation to pedophilia which is definitely unwarranted, in my opinion, as most pedophiles don't want to harm children. I noticed that pedophiles are quick to establish a sort of dichotomy between those who wish to harm children and don't. To some extent, I do agree that those who are often predators sometimes molest children not primarily because they are attracted to them but because of other reasons. And those individuals, I think, are not the same as pedophiles. Usually, from the dozen or so cases I've looked into, predators will molest children because transgressing the law is enjoyable, they'll use children as surrogates when a spouse denies sex, and they'll molest children to feel as though they're in a position of power.

It's interesting how taboo pedophelia is when it's a historically documented practice.

Maybe people hate you because you want to have sex with children. It's too bad that you have something you didn't choose, but you still have it. You're not going to conquer your urges forever, eventually you're gonna start looking up porn.
Oh, and you pedos are also irritating. Just like furfags used to do you bring up your fucked up desires then get upset when people hate you for it. Or you'll just say "it's part of imageboard culture and keeps normies out" if on a chan.
If you're so harmless then great, stop bringing it up and shitting up websites that don't want you there and get on with your life.

7 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2015-06-08 20:52 ID:yc3rhPHl

That sounds like a slippery slope.
Oftentimes, the people who molest children aren't the ones who are naturally disposed to being attracted to children, which we would normally call pedophiles. It just happens that they get lopped in together. I'm not saying that we shouldn't describe people who are attracted to children as having an illness or being dysfunctional (whether it can be thought of as moral or not, it can be detrimental to others, and oftentimes, themselves), but we should look at other factors, too.

8 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2015-06-09 18:19 ID:Jt7Zvh1n

Some MRI scans have found a difference of brain structure of pedophiles, I've heard, I'll have to look into that.

Do (or did) any of you use Usenet?
I recently discovered a free, public news server (, for anyone interested) and it's been pretty fun. There are lots of crazy people and spambots though, and most of the groups seem to be dead.

I like to browse usenet every once and a while for shits and giggles.

the interntet oracle is also quite nice. I have it set up so that, once I check my email on thunderbird, I can just click on that and read a post. Super convenient.
Besides that, Google Groups is pretty cool, because it's sort of like an archive. If I want to read some discussion on maybe a band at the time their debut was releassed, before the dust settles and everyone's opinion becomes homogenized, I check out Google Groups.

You can say that again. To me, alt.slack feels like a predecessor to the shitposting culture that's popular on *chan boards. If it weren't for how heavily influenced by japan most text boards are, I bet most of the content on sites like this would easily be like the neurotic, nonsensical flaming that groups like alt.slack demonstrate.

I read/posted on Usenet a lot in the 90's (and even up until around 2005 or so). It was still pretty big those days, and usable despite the spam (which only started becoming a problem in late 90's, I think). There sure were a lot of strange newsgroups though. Some of them I went in and couldn't figure out wtf they were talking about. The technical newsgroups were very useful those days, and it's actually where all the initial Linux development started. And there was cool stuff like alt.sysadmin.recovery. :-)

As far as readers go, I've used Pine (logical first choice on shell account), tin, and slrn. Slrn was more efficient over a slow dialup connection, but frankly I prefer tin's interface the most. Actually I also used Netscape (v3) sometimes, as it had a built-in NNTP client. Very useful for those special "binary" newsgroups...

I really don't like the google groups interface at all. They should have just given direct NNTP access so you can use any client you wish (even if they embed text ads above or below the posts).

You can still read some open-source mailing lists via NNTP, as described here:

I feel like I contributed to the shitty state that usenet was in after AOL in a minor way. I used AOL to download some software, but after that, I wanted them to cancel my service, so, while I waited on the phone to speak to a specialist, I had want to what I think was alt.traditional.witchcraft or something and started harassing everyone. I played the persona of a zealous Christian, and I attacked everyone about how what they believed was nonsense. They threatened to report me, but I never got banned or anything. That was a fun way to spend an afternoon, I think.
