As a new user refugee from the cesspool of 4chan, I think that Romance needs to be disposed of. The general consensus that I have noticed is that the posters of 4-ch don't want it to become like 4chan /b/.
Romance is by far the most like /b/ of all the boards here. Getting rid of it seems like it would solve a large part of the problem of "cancer" and 12 year olds with their EPIC WIN MEMES.
There is always the backlash that it may cause the cancer of Romance to leak into the other boards; but it seems like eliminating the source of the problem seems like the best solution.
