Backstory on why this is important? Anyone?

Call the cyber police, they'll know what to do with the data.

Oh joy.  The world is so much better now that 4chan stupidity and filth will forever be available for search on the Internet Archive.  Can we just let that part of the Internet be forgotten?

Ever been to 4chan? It's pretty much the origin of all things awful on the internet for about over a decade and a half.

Look at it this way: we're getting a documented, archived medical history of Patient Zero of the dark times history will refer to as "The Crazy Years".

Nice bait, but what is the actual point to this? 99.9% of anything you get from there is going to be shiatty pepe/wojak/boomer memes and anime tiddies. Did someone dump something to /pol/ that they believe is somehow relevant or is it just going to be more shiatty assholes complaining about how white women won't fark them?

Yeah, but it's not like there aren't already sites that scrape and archive everything on 4chan.

The only way this would be interesting is if we were able to see the IP of the people posting.

This. Already know as much as any sane person needs to know about the chans, it's the why part that's got me wondering.

Millions of posts people thought would be anonymous forever are suddenly available in a searchable format.

Hard drives... from what? I think we are missing something here...
 
2018-09-19 08:10:17 PM  
But there are already 4chan archival sites and search engines. Nothing much has ever come of it before.

But if there aren't any ips or names, isn't it all still anonymous?

The raw data probably has date, time, user, possibly ip.

This is the part I don't get. Fark is searchable back from the paleozoic, but we all had different handles back then and god knows what is who now.

Southpaw018: @Roook @_mikegalt_ @Forensication @DrewCurtis @anildash @VydraSays @textfiles is the chief archivist at https://t.co/gywsnsbxrZ. He's going to post whatever's on those hard drives from the 4chan archives. And, most likely, it's going to be raw, searchable data.


What hard drives?  Did somebody look through moot's trash and find the old 4chan servers or something?

Why is this (not) news?

If there's a bottom to the Internet Barrel, then 4chan is what's underneath that barrel.   The Mos Eisley of Earth...

Just imagine lots of .ru IP addresses in /b/ and /pol/ stirring the pot from the early years onward.

North_Central_Positronics: If there's a bottom to the Internet Barrel, then 4chan is what's underneath that barrel.   The Mos Eisley of Earth...


4chan isn't what's under the barrel.

It's what happens when they filled the barrel with radioactive toxic waste without washing it out and performing an integrity test first, and then left to sit in a pool of acidic water at the bottom of a cave for three decades.

Searchable 4chan archives?  Guess someone will have to
