I think that it started as a place to share media, but it's become its own sort of community in a way, both online and offline. anyone have any thoughts about it, and how it became to be what it is today? it'd be an interesting thing to do a paper on if i were a psych major..

Yeah. How did it become the sewers of the internet instead of a nice swimming pool ?

4chan is now full of cancer, and is overflowing to this site. Cancer is killing the internet. I wish it would die already. I'm sick of seeing the same stuff over and over again.

People like to talk, especially about dumb stuff. It is after all human nature to create communities and aggregate in groups.

It's a community. It's as simple as that. The internet has a cult following in the same way that bands like Led Zeppelin, musicals like RENT, and sports teams like the Toronto Maple Leafs have huge followings. People bond through their experiences relating to that thing that they follow.

this is true, but the community that sites like 4chan have broad about are totally different. you don't see zeppelin fans attacking worlwide cults or stalking random people. well, maybe not rush fans anyway.

I have no clue. It probably started with a couple of people being twats, and slowly corrupted the site from there. That's my theory, anyways.
