Can we all just stop with that? It's just another way to label your consumer habits and nothing more.
Labels are for food.
But how will
people like me
if I don't wear T-shirts
of my favorite anime.
Is it not more about how you have a shared interest with others and how you interact with others interested in the same things makes a culture developed around it?
I do have one anime tshit though...
We used to bully those people. Now we are those people. hearthands
Are you really surprised that a market was targeted with consumer products? What a senseless thing to agitate yourself with simply to feel superior to people you'll most likely never interact with.
Internet is worthless
It's funny that over a century ago people used to define themselves by their occupation, family, nation, or religion, but today people define themselves by who they fuck, how great their useless college degree is, and what TV shows they like to watch.
>>7 I agree with you, although looking backwards isn't the ideal solution.
For example family, nation and religion are arbitrary (and in the case of the last two, for at least some people falsehoods.) while occupation has been chipped away by economic circumstances (decline of manufacturing and move away from career-paths in the service sector [no more large scale "hired to stack shelves, now runs the store"] plus changes in interaction between the individual and the state chipping away at the notion of "public service")
So all you're left with is these petty, transient things to define yourself with. I kind of envy the people who can do that, when you mix my thought processes with overzealous use of anonymous boards, you soon find out you don't have any real identity at all.
Four things over which one has little to no choice, and indicate almost nothing as their character, vs how now they define themselves by things that actually reflect tastes, if nothing else? Minus the 'who they like to fuck,' that, and by extension 'what they jack off to' is just cancer, yeah.
People nowadays also define themselves by what communities or scenes they hang around, and political beliefs, which reflect serious influences on their character and ideological values.
Not that defining oneself by political beliefs is a good thing, but its bad because it makes you far less likely to come to anything resembling truth. As something to identify by, it at least indicates some kind of values or beliefs, even if using it makes them intellectually cancerous.
The only websites I browse anymore are 4-ch and 4chan. And I don't even go to 4chan for discussion anymore, as I just look at the pictures. I also read articles on wikipedia, youtube for songs, watch porn, and google for movies and anime (mostly movies) I might watch. Lastly I talk to people on omegle to waste my time, because our discussion never gets anywhere. That's ALL I do on the internet. I don't ever do anything else, since, 2 years now, and I use my computer like 5 hours a day.
Sad Panda, a man has his needs!
Motherless, freaky chic male lookin' for PTHC beastaility.
I was getting back into 4chan but I was recently banned and my IP's staying static.
Google, educating oneself is as important as respecting your elders.
Wikipedia, articles galore, also a good way to learn about some old internet history.
I go onto YouTube in order to learn things and sometimes I'll find a bit of unheard music which I'll get into.
What.CD, gotta have this place! Usually when I listen to something I like I'll look up the album that it's on and grab a copy of it in FLAC.
Digitalgangster 4ums, this place is okay if you're into shitposting like a black person and discussing opiate abuse/hacking.
HackForums, I like messing with people in The Lounge, it gives me a sense of superiority.
CEF, this was the first forum that I posted on. I would make cheats for this flash game called Stick Arena but shortly afterward I became interested in the sub-culture of their Random Spam forum which I now frequent, once you're in you can't get out.
I download anime from Nyaa, if it wasn't for anime I don't know how I'd pass the time like I do now.
I collect HD movies so I usually just snatch popular things from HDChina.
For a short while I was posting in FYAD, really gave me a good insight into metacommentary and it kick started my SMALL Twitter career which I've practically abandoned.
Channel4, Let's Plays and MST3K.
Living the dream.
This is the guy you were replying to, and I just now checked this out. This is very cool and I'm going to be wasting a lot of my time on it. Thank you.
Judging by how these posts were made in 2011/2012 I wonder how much these people's habits have changed.
I exclusively browse 4-ch for hours on end, continuously reloading the page, desperately hoping that something shows up, and then clinging to that new content even after it becomes stale
Longing for that time when everything seemed new and fresh
Longing for my youth back
I do the same things these users were doing in 2012, it's pretty pathetic how stale the web is. Nyaa, rutracker, mal, sad panda, danbooru, alt /jp/ boards, bbs , 1 reg forum, steam, lurk Japanese sites I can't read. I only have fun if I'm buying something on the internet.
I don't even do anything different than I did 5 years ago. It's always been the same shit. 4chan, alternate imageboards, pixiv, animebytes, archives of /a/ and /jp/, futaba, and youtube. I think I'm going to take a break from the internet, actually. It feels like I've been going through the motions with no real purpose for a while now, getting away from it for a few months should help make things seem somewhat interesting again.
4ch is no longer that funny or enjoyable to me. I used to browse only this site for a long time when I was in high school, but coming back it doesn't feel the same although I know that it is me who changed.
I'm going to reply not specifically to you but to the sort of thing this post can represent. I disagree with the whole premise of the "growing out of the Internet" trope. If anything the Internet will be more prevalent in your life in the future regardless of your browsing habits simply due to technological integration. I hardly ever post here anymore for a variety of reasons but what has changed is not me, nor is it the Internet, or the content on this site, but that it is not presently able to add any novelty or value to my life. Things are stale mostly because the only people who have any cause to visit a site like this are either former or present users with ossified posting habits or inappropriately reverent newcomers who still hold stock in the smug seniority principle. The confluence of these two factors make these boards living museums and things are done a certain way out of inertia rather than any sort of utility. Don't confuse your own dissatisfaction with a systemic flaw in the Internet as a whole.
Is pedophilia ingrained into imageboard culture? or can it exist without pedophilia? After all, imageboard culture has its roots in otaku culture, and we all know how extensive the overlap of "lolicon" and otaku culture is.
I don't advocate pedophilia, but I feel like people who post on textboards like this, announcing that they're anti-pedophile, are just the worst people to have discussions with. They could all just be trolls, sure, but I feel like anytime anything remotely pedo-ish comes up, regardless of the quality of discussion, someone extremely angry will spam or derail the thread at the expense of discussion.
Don't generalise like that, sites are not hiveminds.
The only logical explanation for the stupidly overbearing outburst of anger that arises when pedophilia is brought up is that people are actually compensating for their own urges and trying to cover up their hypocrisy.
I'm against hurting real children, but I'll be damned before I let any hypersensitive dimwit limit my freedom to wank to loli doujins.
No idea what you are talking about.Little girls make my cock hard and I sniff their underwear and look at their asses and Jack off to potty training photos.I want to own a small girl.I want to wleat her bald pussy and eat her shit and whip her and eat her tears.I love when but I want to EAT a little girls pussy.When I see a girl cry I am turned on.These words are not getting out right.Show me little girl photos.Let's cum laude n their four year old mouths.

What is Tor?
Tor is free software and an open network that helps you defend against traffic analysis, a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security.

Why Anonymity Matters
Tor protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays run by volunteers all around the world: it prevents somebody watching your Internet connection from learning what sites you visit, and it prevents the sites you visit from learning your physical location.
All about hacking is discussed here.
I need whole process to send SMS on any mobile phone in the world anonymously.
Can anyone help me ?
Interesting topic, may b someone help you
Have you considered prepaid simcard with cash and a burner phone? But if you really want to be anonymous it's better to not use a phone in the first place.
Has 0037's site died? Been down for me for a couple hours already.
I think it's dead. Maybe Avery Morrow finally noticed the threads about himself and went full autism?
Are there any decent(and hopefully active) /a/ spinoffs out there?
can anyone tell me how do i send sms on any mobile phone anonymously ???
What ever happened to that guy Sling from Shanachan's /news/ board?
He's gone? He did post pretty often and in all kind of places... THere's a dude called ５１２Ｍ in the 2ch English chat thread on the english board. He kinda reminds me of him, lol
moot sold 4Chan to hiroyuki nishimura, founder and former owner of 2ch
Why is it everyone on here is so snobbish?
Do I have to remind you that there are hundreds of imageboards out there that are virtually ignored?
And some of the most active textboards outside of 4chan, 420chan, 8chan have some of the most unique and insular userbases, like /what/, which is practically all /jp/.
Why do you act like you have absolutely no control over the websites you browse? do you think that there's no alternative? Because the fact is that, of the existing textboards, 4-ch is hardly the most active.
You can hardly call /jp/ (or old /jp/, whatever) 4chanesque.
can you hook me up with the best textboards?
I was thinking about 4ct yesterday and felt kinda bad for not going there
Apparently, Hiro's posted on hispachan.
Shitty place that tries really hard to imitate 4chan.
The result of the retrofuturist automotive designers' campaign against postmodern furniture enjoyment, or just a temporary hiccup? You decide!
Wakachan is dead. Long live Wakachan.
The era of the image board is over.
Long live Wakachan?
Who's the already-determined successor?
