what is filter?
You want to pretend smut is now a special filter?
newfags only always complain on things others like that they don't like.
Oldfags complain too, nimrod.
You're well informed and sound like you know reddit a lot. Go back to cuck chan /v/
If you missed the events with fatpeoplehate coming to the board or gamergate in the early days, then you're clearly a newfag. I don't know how "casually" you'd have to lurk to avoid noticing those major happenings, but I'd venture that your presence was close to nonexistent.
onion wasn't ready 3 years ago, retard. keep imagining.
Technically not. Onion address was http://fullchan4jtta4sx.onion/ almost 3 years ago, retard. And I wasn't even saying that I was on the tor service back then. I was saying I'm on the tor service now (and therefore cannot post pictures even if I wanted to).
then why are you saying that tech was better 3 years ago?
Because 3 years ago you would get shat on more if you attempted to start low quality threads. Now we've got more idiots arguing "omg user dont be a faggot shit threads are life" preaching the acceptance of living with cancer instead of applying chemo.
cuckchanner redditor spotted
implying Holla Forums users never use the word "shat"
There's reaching and then there's just being retarded. Are you now pretending people don't use the word "shit" and variants on the boards?
Are you mad they'll harm your netflix "go binge" plans? off to reddit and good luck with your extra "go steam" gayming plan
Oh I see. You're one of those polkids butthurt I called out trump fanboys for being board cancer, aren't you? Look snowflake, I don't even use netflix, and Steam can die in a fire for all I care. I do use GOG though. And giving ISPs the ability to rate-limit you based on the websites you visit is a power they cannot be trusted with.
Proof you're a kid trying too hard to fit in. Hacking the phone network has fuck-all to do with this conversation, but I reckon you didn't even know what "phreaking" means.
What drew people here is that Moot and the janitors were suppressing thread about a certain shitstorm and Hot Wheels promised this place would be more open and less curated, which worked out well for a while, until the pedo boards pushed that past its limit.
Agreed. Except /tg/ came over for a different reason. 4/tg/ was being nazimodded and flooded under a giant pile of quest threads, so people came to 8/tg/ in hopes of a better forum.
And the reason thread quality went up, back in the day, is because the types of people who actually had the gumption to get up and move were more intelligent, on average, than the ones that didn't, but even they started going back to halfchan or quitting imageboards altogether when the technical limitations of the software this place runs on became a problem.
True. But a major part of Holla Forums elitism was that post quality and board quality was generally better than 4chan's shit, which is now much less the case. Of course, Holla Forums's server tech was so badly mismanaged that server stability and retarded NEXT migration were becoming serious issues so people started leaving. Speaking of which, the tor service is somehow the slowest piece of crap with regular outages, and I'm pretty sure it's not tor's fault since I can access torchan just fine without any of these absurd delays.
Now, as for Holla Forums and it's affinity (no pun intended) for Tyson's mascots, I don't really see the problem with it.
I actually don't care about that or mind it either. I just don't want fullblown furfags using it as an entrypoint to push for fullblown furfaggotry.
