I am fine with a pre-emptive nuclear strike on 4Chan.

4CHAN NOOOOOOOO

And yet, the script kiddies agree:
Declaring a Defcon of three
And pointing the bombs
At certain dot-coms
Could still never rid us of /b/.

A bill introduced in the U.S. Senate Tuesday would compel the White House to identify international cybercrime havens and establish plans for cleaning them up.

Nuke the sites from orbit?

Its like Skynet, you can never really destroy it and destruction is inevitable.

4 Chan always came across to me as "first strike" kinda place.

Party Van Time?

No, but seriously how do they actually plan to go about this? How can you "clean up" a website overseas? What're they gonna do? Go over and kidnap somebody?

Actually, they can nuke the rest. Just leave /o/ and /tg/ alone.

Read the damn article.

They'd financially punish the countries (deny trade, foreign aid, etc)
 
2010-03-24 11:54:15 AM
UNLESS, they possess nuclear weapons, a trillion dollars in US treasuries, or both.

I wonder if they will have the balls to go after the state sponsors as well, like China.

The foreign governments would have to cooperate. In the case of Russia, the FSB is working in conjunction with the USA on this. You would however not really be able to do anything if the country does not offer cooperation.

My fellow Americans, I'm pleased to tell you that I have signed legislation that will outlaw 4chan forever. We begin bombing in five minutes.

Dude, /tg/ gets shiat done. How many other places have such a huge repository of homebrew content? More specifically, how many other places took the effort to actually write out a 40K codex?

This.

I appreciate the concept, some of the memes, and the interviews I've read with the kid are rather interesting.

But Jesus effing Christ, I can't believe people who take it so damn seriously and think it's a bellweather of things to come. It's where adolescents (by virtue of age or intelligence) hang out and where the rest of us occasionally might check in briefly to, say, see if you've completely lost the ability to be shocked (THANKS INTERNET) or if you're just drunk.

Couldn't you replace "4chan" with almost any noun and that sentence would remain true?

It's ironic, 4chans only real value is as a resource for law-enforcement.

There was a /b/ before Habbo Hotel where the first raid occurred in July of 2006. After Habbo Hotel, the attacks became more destructive and complex singling out myspace and Furry people later that summer. Later on came the attacks on Scientology in January of 2008 and now there's the attacks on Australia and Facebook users. The rules state that there no invasions allow and that includes /b/, but raids still do happen and 4chan is often in constant contact with Party Van because users do stupid things.

The article seems to direct cyber legislation towards crimes when money is involved.
