First imageboards? (5)

On another site I made a thread about oldschool imageboard culture and spoke of 4chan back in the mid 00s.
This one pissant came into the thread and arrogantly claimed that wasn’t oldschool and started talking about having been going to imageboards on usenet.
He didn’t even know about the Japanese origins of imageboards.
Is he wrong though or were there actually imageboards on Usenet that predate the Japanese textboard and imageboards.

2 Name: 408 - Name Request Timeout : 2021-04-13 10:06 ID:jbVXRQgm

I mean, usenet is kind of the first digital bulletin board system (the precursor being ACTUAL bulletin boards). It's not entirely crazy to call it an imageboard. I think an important distinction is that usenet was pseudonymous at best and it was the anonymity of Japanese text/imageboards that distinguished them from other forums of the time.

Does anyone know what http://futachan.org/ was about? According to an old post from Mr VacBob* it contained a "pretty web portal" for 4chan, but I can't find any more info on it. What exactly did the "pretty web portal" entail? Are there any screenshots left?

Then why are they always filled with conformists? Everyone on them conforms to the same thoughts and behaviors. Despite the fact that they don't have to because it is anonymous! They are like the 5 monkeys experiment played out. Why doesn't anyone use names or tripcodes frequently? Because a couple nerds 20 years ago wanted it that way and everyone just goes along with it. How foolish!

Now you might say other sites are filled with conformists too. And that just means there is nothing special about anonymous boards at all. The only thing that sets them apart is being populated by weird, mentally crippled nerds. If they were truly so great, you would see a much wider range of expression and experimentation in these places. But you don't. Because the people on them are too scared to be different even if no one knows who they are.

[SPAM] Where does bot spam come from? [INQUIRY] [NET DETECTIVE] (15)

1 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2021-01-07 20:09 ID:A2XHXRdb

I once uploaded Kareha onto a server I was running from home, purely just to test the software and study the code. I didn't advertise the board to anybody, and only made three test threads. Amazingly, after having forgotten about the board, and coming back a year later, I found it full of spam and links.

Everybody knows about textboard spam, wakaba's /soc/ board was removed after being spammed to oblivion, the site that wrote the original gazouBBS (futaba's sourcecode) script's demonstration boards were also full of spam comments written in English, so on, we've all seen it.

Where is it actually coming from though? Has anybody ever gone down the rabbithole of internet spam and bots? How do they find no-name sites that nobody visits? What is their end goal? Who actually runs these bots? Is anybody even running these bots or have they been on autopilot for decades? Is there a network of spammers? What is your experience with spam?

Within the past three years or so, "scambaiting" has become a popular genre of youtube and twitch content, with people investigating tech support scammers and robotcallers and whatnot, but I feel like nobody really cares about the rabbithole of people spamming on websites, when it is just as vast and fascinating.

6 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2021-02-23 21:02 ID:/nXkVKbk

It feels like running your own anonymous imageboard or even textboard is just too risky these days thanks to the CP bombers, and there's not much point in running one when people are just going to use the big 2 imageboards anyways. It's a shame people just give up, I miss small cozy imageboards like shanachan so much.

It's so weird. For fun, I made it so that if you try to visit my IP address directly (instead of going to a vhost) you get a form that sends me an e-mail. A few days after I put it on, I started getting daily mails just saying "0x[]=androxgh0st". What does it mean?!

10 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2021-03-14 12:24 ID:7n0ZhPLW

Here's a fun exercise: pick a random old post, ideally one distinctive enough that you won't find much similar elsewhere, and google it. Then, go to the very last few pages of results. If you picked your phrase well, you will find a bunch of automatically-generated websites with random urls and content composed of low-res memes from decades ago, what might be CP, and pages upon pages of mangled stolen posts from various boards.
Maybe it's some elaborate way of getting money from ad revenue, but I don't understand how. No one will be visiting a url that looks like it came out of Satan's anus. There's definitely some elaborate money-making scheme tied up in there somewhere.

As for the spam that imageboards/textboards get, is it possible that the spambots used also operate on other types of boards as well? Maybe some relatively common spambot software package comes with built in support for various bits of imageboard software. I'd imagine that the spambot's authors implemented support for spamming Wakaba and Kareha boards back when there were far more around. Interested spammers continue to pay for use of said spambot services and they coincidentally end up including imageboards as a target. I expect that good spambot software is intelligent enough these days to automatically detect what is a forum it can post on.

I've always suspected that the CP ad spam could be federal agents trying to bait paedophiles into revealing themselves. That, or some pissed-off imageboard admins trying to get competitors shut down. Or maybe the links go to malware downloads that some skiddie is using to build up his cryptocurrency mining botnet. Probably all three, really.
