4chan under new ownership

4chan has attained legendary status in the history of web culture. Famous for its uninhibited, freewheeling users who say and create what they want, safe from the prying, politically-correct eyes of mainstream society, it has become famous for political incorrectness and depraved humour. If one thing bucks the trend of the “coddling of the American mind” currently taking place on US campuses, it is the hellraising millennial culture that developed on 4chan. Put it this way; you won’t find any “safe spaces” on the site.

The site has also had a considerable impact on politics. The Anonymous movement was founded there, in response to what users saw as the Church of Scientology’s efforts to censor criticism on the internet.

Really? The anonymous movement, GF masks and all actually started with that original $cn. protest?
I never knew that.

Yes. Project Chanology, and the decision to wear GF masks -- all that happened at 4chan. Believe it or not, Anonymous used to strictly use consensus.

Edit: and lolcats started at 4chan too.

This video leak (which members here carried out) launched Project Chanology.

Gawker picked it up, and refused to take it down, when asked to by the cult.

The attempt to censor the internet, by the cult, inspired Project Chanology.

And the rest is history.

And I for one am eternally grateful - without Project Chanology and all that it spawned, I may well still be in the cult.:yes:

Oh, look who's at 3:09! We have shared years exposing this cult. And it's been my pleasure, Scoots. You've brought some of the best results of anyone in the world. Unsung hero alert!
