people visit 4chan for reasons not connected with porn?
 
2013-04-13 01:34:33 AM
No "may have" about it. That happened.
 
2013-04-13 01:35:03 AM
Obviously, the solution is to have more law enforcement monitoring of /b/.

Bucky Katt: people visit 4chan for reasons not connected with porn?


I guess there is a first time for any thing?
 
2013-04-13 01:36:10 AM
So, do we need a new tag for that on Fark?  Just to highlight this kind of announcement?
 
2013-04-13 01:36:20 AM
By the way, the linked article has NSFW content if you scroll all the way down.
 
2013-04-13 01:36:20 AM
Did he post pics with his Ak15 assault super gun with extended super long clips and Teflon coated cop eradicating bullets?

If not, he's not following the standard.

2013-04-13 01:41:07 AM
Not may have, he absolutely did.

Farking 4chan slackers. If this had involved a cat, the community would have stopped it in time!
 
2013-04-13 01:44:06 AM
Well, for once OP delivered.

This is why the police should be allowed to track and monitor all internet posts on a real-time basis!

Dang it. Not showing up on mine... The only NSFW thing I see is blurred out unless you clicky...

This is why I stick to 420chan. Nobody gets shot and you get to read about idiots doing duster to get high.

Well, he knew his limitations and said he wasn't going for the high score.
Sounds like he failed completely and didn't get any kills.

Is that why /b is on lockdown with nothing new going in?
 
2013-04-13 01:58:48 AM
Oh, that makes more sense. I saw a story on this earlier which only quoted the sentence "10 minutes away from Virginia Tech," as evidence of the guy's intentions, which was idiotic since Christiansburg IS about ten minutes away from Virginia Tech and announcing that fact isn't necessarily an indicator of imminent slaughter.

Mrbogey: Is that why /b is on lockdown with nothing new going in?


Yeah. Lots of weird activity earlier today:

http://www.isitdownrightnow.com/4chan.org.html

The index isn't updating for /v/ either, and IIRC /b/ and /v/ are both on the same (high-traffic) server cluster. Presumably, law enforcement wants that post preserved.

/not a big 4chan guy, but I have to admit to trolling /v/ on occasion
 
2013-04-13 02:02:53 AM
I seem to recall this claim being made about each of the last three recent school shootings or so - and each time, it's ben fake. Color me skeptical.  What's different this time?

Mother Superior could walk by at any moment.

Not Safe For Work?

Where do you work that allows you to surf the net all day, unless of course, you happen upon an exposed nipple, in which case, you're fired?
If you're so concerned about mom, or your kids being in the room then maybe you should shy away from sites that suggest that subby's mom could have had a brilliant carreer in the bukkake industry had her pimp understood the concept of intellectual copyright.

The neutering of Fark continues.

Is that what a /b/ thread looks like?

So shy away from Huffington Post. Got it.

Well, Fark is known for its really cool Gregorian chants.

Subby, nothing within 10 min drive of Blacksburg is suburban.  Blacksburg is RURAL.  The closest urban-ish thing to Blacksburg is Richmond, which is an hour away. The closest no-shiat urban thing to Richmond is Washington DC, which is four hours away from Blacksburg.

I'm not saying it's a tragedy.  It is.  I'm saying if you post your homicidal intent on the Internet, with your target in the middle of nowhere, and nobody arrives in minutes, don't blame the Internet.

That's actually incredibly tame by /b/ standards. You would generally expect to see much more porn (and ponies) in most of them.

That being said, if law enforcement actually wanted to monitor /b/, they'd end up wasting untold millions on wild goose chases.

Ooopsy! If you're seeing NSFW content in the ads on that page, then it's because you haven't erased your cookies, and the ads from porno sites you've already visited are following you around.

Ponies were banned though, you can't post ponies anywhere on 4chan aside from /mlp/.  I never go to /b/ though, so not sure how tightly regulated that is there, but everywhere else I've seen that crap gets shut down fast, and for good reason.

/damn you ponyfarkers for what you did to /co/ pre-/mlp/

4Chan is like a trailer park. Drive by it. Try not to drive through it and dear God do not ever stop and talk with the natives.

Not seeing ads. I was talking about the thumbs in the archived thread embedded in the linked page. Why is everybody so touchy tonight?

4chan isn't nearly as bad as some of you seem to think it is. Stay away from /b/ and a few of the other boards and you'll find some pretty good forums. Even /b/ isn't that bad, with the exception of the gore threads. They've pretty much wiped out the child porn, so that's a plus.

They're getting a little self-touchy about the pron images.
