Do they ever go too far? They rig votes, harass children playing online games, harass the families of those who have epilepsy, and that’s just a little bit of it.

So what do you think. Does 4chan ever go to far?

I mean, free speech is one thing, but just because you have it, doesn’t mean you have to use it in the worst possible way.

(They do however, oppose scientology, which is NOT bad.) Damn spell check tried to make me capitalize scientology.

I don’t mean to sound like a buzzkill, but what do you really think?

Now that I just did a quick bit of research, 4chan and anonymous don’t seem AS bad.
What am I talking about?
Dusty the Cat and Chris Forcand.
Plus they oppose scientology, which is good.

4chan isn’t any singular entity responsible for anything. It is a community made up of many anonymous individuals. That is all. Project Chanology was cool, but it’s not like you can even accurately say that all of 4chan actively takes part in any of it. It’s just an Anonymous Community. What people are capable of doing from there is up to them.

Anonymous is the final boss of the Internet.
I saw an image summing up the fact that they helped arresting a cat molester but haven’t any scruples making fun of the Holocaust.
They behave as they please and only to get some lulz. Free speech is just a flag they like to brandish to justify all of their actions.

Concerning the Chanology project, I have seen many many critics and disdain from so-called “oldfags”, among others, about the fact that people went to protest in real life.
There is nothing and, at the same time, everything to expect from that community.

There is no Good, no Evil, only Chaos.

4chan’s Anonymous is how we overcame humanity.

All beings so far have created something beyond themselves; and do you want to be the ebb of this great flood and even go back to the beasts rather than overcome man? What is the ape to man? A laughingstock or a painful embarrassment. And man shall be just that for the overman: a laughingstock or a painful embarrassment…

Something you should be aware of, 4chan is not Anonymous. It is crucial that you make that distinction. Anonymous separated from 4chan on /b/-day.
Furthermore, 4chan is not evil. Anonymous is not evil. Anonymous is humanity manifested, and 4chan is a collection of idiots posting whatever lurks in their subconscious, trolls, and sick fucks.

It is written somewhere (probably on ED) that Anonymous are almost always /b/tards, but that not all /b/tards are Anonymous. The chan boards are just a medium through which Anonymous manifests itself. I think the most interesting thing about Anon is that it cannot be clearly defined. Those that are naive/ignorant refer to it as a group, whereas it’s better defined as either a concept, a form of identity, an ideal or, better still, a combination of the three.

…man, it’s too early in the morning for this :S

4chan is a realm between realms. It is the wasteland that our three-dimensional universe dares not touch. It is where the gods come to die, the blood from their wounds pouring blindly from there into our world. And so aether is born. Some claim that they have astrally projected into this extraneous dominion of the cosmos, and thus can bring back messages from it, though they are too feeble-minded to fully comprehend what lies beyond the reaches of science. The truly gifted know that this ‘4chan’ is but a place of undiluted chaos. Chaos would render any human but an atomic dustcloud, as their bodies require far too much order to survive there without magic. Cultists who lurk in the isolated confines of Earth insist that there is but one creature whose body cannot be destroyed by the chaos, or by anything. He has no name, though our laboratory has translated more than a few hieroglyphs found in eldritch tomes to find a suitable nickname for Him. We are not to speak His true name.

4chan is a site of racists, pedos and exploding vans.
