>"Today I'm pleased to announce that Hiroyuki Nishimura, best known as the founder of 2channel, has taken my place as the owner of 4chan." - Moot
This has got a lot of brows raised over at The Other Place. Apparently this Japanese fellow was driven out of 2chan for being caught selling users data behind the scenes. I know a lot of us either used to or still sometimes visit 4chan, so do you think this will amount to much or will it be business as usual?
My worry is refugees, especially Indians. They'll want a designated shitting board and I don't think that'll work.

Ed March is a fucking legend. He shows up those cunts on R1200GSes for the cunts they are. Cunts.
|>>|| No. 23471
The guy he sold it to is shady as all fuck. Sold user data to the Japanese government, let companies pay to have negative posts removed...and there's a whole saga of him getting ousted from 2ch.
4chan is in the worst possible hands probably. Of course no one will give a shit as long as they can still post.

I think the vast majority of 4chan now are relatively new users and have little grasp on what's going on. The ones that do care will probably move to 8chan/have done already.

These days, an oldfag is someone who has been around since last summer. Successive mass exoduses, federal investigations and the diminished life expectancy of your average channer have shrunk the original userbase down to nothing.

The current owner of 2ch owns 8chan, a yank I can't remember the name of, not ichiban noodru from the OP.

You pretty much shoehorned that in. And all you ever do when you shoehorn this topic in is bleat ad-homs or some inane, unfunny bullshit.
I'd just like to ask you to consider the message in this video please.

Lad. Think about what you just did. You just told someone to kill themselves on account of the fact that they don't want to hear about a tumblr vs reddit vs *chan internet war about videogames.
Come on now. Don't you think it's time to wind your neck in?

Is there less or more ethics in video games journalism now compared to a year ago? Wait, don't answer that. I don't care.
|>>|| No. 23483
Whoever they are they just keep bringing it up on the slightest pretence it seems and they always post in a manner designed to infuriate. I mean come on.
>Someone turn my brain back on
Direct quote. I wish someone would turn their brain off. This cunt has been annoying me for months and although I'm British, I have finally had to say something.
> You just told someone to kill themselves on account of the fact that they don't want to hear about a tumblr vs reddit vs *chan internet war about videogames.
No, I told someone to kill themselves because although they "don't want to hear about it", they can't help but bring it up and post childish drivel about it.
Seriously, they should fuck off.
(A good day to you Sir!)

Er, he didn't bring it up, pal, the link about 8chan went on about it at length.

In passing because that is part of the history of the chan. It's like reading about the history of Germany and complaining it has nazis in it.

Saying your brain has turned off isn't a complaint, it's an expression of boredom at how the entirety of a certain section of "internet culture" is now seemingly based entirely around a meaningless factional internet war between different branches of retard shut ins.

What were you expecting in a thread about chans you utter knob skin.
It is clear that >>23475 linked to those articles because how they related to Hiroyuki Nishimura, it's a willful reading in bad faith to focus on the referances Gamergate in there as if it were about that when it is dealing with a broader history of 8chan. >>23476 a twat, and you are a bigger twat for not seeing their bullshit desire to be offended obsession.

Just because you expect something doesn't mean you can't be disappointed when proven correct, lad.

As far as I can tell, 4chinz has been down since about half 10.
Good job, Nipponese Conquerer.

That was the imgur 0 day exploit. The story is out there, just Google it. Long story short, a pokemon fanatic foot fetishist paedophile called Vao who tripcodes on /vp/ found a 0 day exploit in one of the biggest image uploaders and could have taken down large sites but he chose to fuck with 8ch and 4chan users instead. The whole thing seemed very tinfoil hatter till they worked out who it was.

He seems to have tried to defend some of the 2ch stuff.
>I'm happy that there is no stupid 4chan users who easily are deceived without any evidence.
>First of all, NT technology, which is owned by Jim Watkins, were a hosting company which hosted 2ch.net servers.
>Also, they provided domain privacy protection services.
>I used their services.
>"I" means (Packet monsters Inc. and I) in all later sentences.
>One day, their credit card servers were cracked.
>The 2ch pass service was made by Zero Inc. and NT technology.
>They secretly stored user’s credit card numbers and users personal information.
>And, Crackers leaked those information.
>I didn't have any access to the 2ch pass servers.
>And I’ve never known that they stored such information on their servers.
>After the leaking, they wanted to make 2ch pass again.
>But I couldn't trust them so that I declined.
>And, they were almost bankrupt.
>So, Jim stole 2ch.net domain and systems.
>It is what happened.
>If they don't tell a lie, they can explain that
>"Who gave or sold the domain and system to you?"
>"Is there any evidence like a contract?"
>There are no such evidence because they stole.
>Actually, I have sued them in Japan. The lawsuit starts on Nov.
>If I do illegal things, why wouldn’t they sue me?
>Instead of that, I have sued them because they are liars.

Instead of inexplicably having a go at me, why don't you comment on Hiroyu-gi-oh's statement(s).
|>>|| No. 23512
Usually I wouldn't bother mentioning the place, but since this is here... In other 4chan related news, an /r9k/ user posted a thread talking about shooting up a school and talked about a "beta uprising" and then ended up being that Oregon school shooter.
This is how the Taiwanese reported it.

Are you referring to the Death By Powerpoint slides that may or may not be included, or the random images of magicians that I can neither confirm nor deny are present?

I assume that the background information to go with those would have come from the speaker delivering the talk, and potentially in backup notes that may have been distributed with them.
I'm surprised they call their part of the organisation a "cell" though. Last I heard, the lads in Cheltenham really, really don't like cells.

YMCAlads are the nosiest aspergers on the internet and will be having a wank to whatever their targets are wanking to, stalking lasses randomly, breaking every privacy law because national security lol. The sheer scale of their spying still being disclosed by the leaks is shocking and if ever the working conditions are fully revealed one fears for their personal safety.
Also +1 for the lad who said Gamergate turns his brain off. I browse pastebin trends looking for interesting material and this obscure and endless factional feud which has no real life relevance beyond the internet has received way too much attention already.

Well, the important thing is that you've given the rest of us a way to feel superior to both.

Autistic geniuses who do what they are told by the rich and look at all our private shite and noodz I guess. Also note Radiohead fans present in the doughnut for that extra sense of depressed alienation.

These are people engaged in a year long argument about perhaps the least substantial product of man's labours on this planet: videogame journalism. If you don't already feel vastly superior to both parties, you may have serious issues with your self esteem.

The full back at my local rugby club doesn't exactly strike me as a Brown or Halfpenny either.
