Are you "out" as a chan user?

Probably a decade and a half ago I told some friends about it but they couldn't get over the fact that some dickheads liked to post CP on there to be edgy. Which is 100% correct. Fuck that shit

Nobody outside of the people who post on these websites even knows what they are. The secret club days are long gone. This is one of the top chan websites left, and isn't it still hosted in Kirtaner's house? The reality of going into the holidays as an unashamed poster on one of these websites would have to include explaining what it is. "You know those websites who get on the news all the time for racist mass shootings? I post on one :)"

"Yeah grandma, you know that guy who had all that stuff written on his gun when he murdered all those innocent people? Yeah hehe he got those off one of those websites I go on, I say remove kebab all the time! XD"

Record and post results?

It has been a lot like this actually.
One of my twerpy gamer friends knew about it, more specifically, a Himlerling. He couldn't get over some of the less straight stuff.

Aside from that, people of all sort did have a rough understanding that I'm a total insensitive clod of a hacker on a beowolf cluster of warez from soviet russian zero day ant overlords that do the programming for you!

This site has never been on the news for racist mass shootings so it isn't "one" of those. qed

I think they were talking about chans in general. It's rather disengenous to ignore the fact that the handful of chans in existence come from a single place of origin, and that we are a 2 and 0 away from the largest English speaking one. If you bothered to look around you can see that a majority of the users here are most likely browsing that cesspit in conjunction to 420

They were talking about chans in general but I was trying to make the point it's a category error to lump us all in together as places for racist school shooters on that basis

I don't believe that's true or that there's any evidence for a majority.

It wasn't as the third sentence in the post I was replying to pivoted subject from posting on chans in general to on this board in particular, then went back and made the category error of including this with the others.

Do keep in mind that we have a larger connection in my house than most datacenter colo. I have 2.5gbps upload vs a standard rackspace 1gbps line, and Cloudflare further eases the burden.

For example, we managed to handle over 30TB upload in a single evening for a recent AEW event.

I do not have a typical internet connection.

No. Not even computer nerds have any respect for chan sites anymore.

4chins already did a pretty good job of portraying these places as sites full of weirdos and the socially maladjusted but stormfrontins really took it to the next level by using 'durp muh freeze peech' as an excuse for doing no modding at all. Like a lot of people said in this thread already, that turned the entire culture into "oh yeah chan sites, that's where all those school shooters and racist terrorists are from"

Also like kirt said once, twitter is essentially a giant normcore imageboard now. Between that and twitch sucking up all the users, there isn't really any quality posters left for these places.

>Why do we come here again?

tbh I don't even know anymore. I find myself here less and less.

These days I think now that we as imageboard posters are essentially all of the people who came in dead last place during the social media land rush of the last 10 years.

Seriously? Everyone posts on the future? Hey grandma check out my racist shooter site? all of the people who came in dead last place during the social media land rush of the last 10 years???
(the fuck is that last one even supposed to mean)

Did you guys start coming here from the future, or even worse twitter and circlejerk, within the last couple years or what?
If you're this ashamed to be on a Chan then don't, we've always been our own community and we don't need the embarrassed dregs of others.

To answer op's question I used to tell people about 420chan all the time at psych meetings and bus stops while mentally ill hobo posting.
I met my best friend on #po on Irc here.

Who cares? All chan culture is from oldfriends now is a reverse "we didn't start the fire" where they simultaneously take credit and avoid responsibility for literally every major internet action since 2006. Rid yourselves of attachments to the past, people.

It allows you to be more present in this moment where you need to make positive change starting today. Time marches on, you can speed up or slow down the timings individual events but you can't start and stop them, and your ability to influence anything ever is minimal, not to mention nothing ever comes to fruition the way you envisioned it. I participated in the same culture you did.

There's a difference between obsessing over the past and carrying it along with you, integrated. There's nothing wrong with having "your story" -- nor is there anything wrong with trying to break free of it and live a decontextualized Now.

I have never told anyone about this site nor has anyone mentioned it to me. I once saw someone with a 420chan pin on a backpack in my city one time. That’s the closest I ever came. I found these chans over 10 years ago which seems insane and I’ve probably made less than 50 posts ever.

I think it’s just those gold nuggets of humor created by genius/stupidity that you just can’t find anywhere else that keeps me hooked.

It's a pretty fucking big error if you go around telling people you post on "those websites who get on the news all the time for racist mass shootings" instead of just saying you post on some website for discussing drugs or wrestling .

I honestly like the place but a lot of things happen on here that I'm embarrassed about. The way I think about it is if I would like my friend to tell about a website, go on there, and possibly first see either a gore, cp, or racist image because some idiot troll thought it'd be funny.

While I'm fine with discussing bluelight and other moderated forums of old. I actually would feel comfortable mentioning 420chan IRC or discord. The actual chan just feels iunno.. Any chan too. I didn't even start on chans, I found them because they are so low commitment. The trade-off is I might be exposed to pure bullshit and insane scum of the Earth fear mongers, bigots, and antisocial predators. This place doesn't really have any of that, but I still care about it.
