Finnish imageboards vs Turkish imageboards

I don’t know if you’ve heard this yet but there is a conflict similar to 4chumlr or Britchan vs 2ch between the Finnish imageboards Ylilauta and Northpole and Turksih imageboard Trchan.

How did it start? Well Ylilauta went down for maintenance due to a DDOS that was coming from Turkey. In response Ylilauta admins banned all Turkish IPs from entering the site. Unable to attack Ylilauta the Turks turned to Northpole which went down multiple times. .

In response users of Ylilauta launched a their famous “enrichings” (Which means “raid” on Ylilauta and in the past has brought memes like Spurdo and The Lenny Face to 4chan/reddit ect.. Basically they spam memes all over a website) and due to this Trchan enforced a posting limit meaning only 10 threads per hour could be created. Northpole users then launched a DDOS at Trchan and took the site offline temporarily. The /int/ board of Krautchan was used by both sides to talk to the other side.

In the aftermath all Turks remain banned from Ylilauta and Northpole but Trchan has been forced to block all non-Turkish IPs. It is unknown whether this is permanent.

Do you guys think this is worth an article? Possibly under “event”?

I’d say that if we can verify this it could have an event entry.

Does anyone have more information on this? It sounds like an event entry to me.
