Today lets reminisce about an important event in 8chan history - The Pedocaust.
Summary of the event - Until then pedos had been ruling the roost as a protected class under Chancellor Hotwheels. Jim takes over the site because Hotwheels proves inept at managing its finances. As one of his first actions Jim shuts down multiple pedo boards such the most prominent of which is /hebe/. Massive butthurt follows
Pedos declare that the site is finished. Nothing happens, Everything remains the same
It was long overdue
Finally pedoweebs will keep their lolishit out
There's a reason why AnonIB isn't about board creation anymore, and IB4F is dead (aside from the fact that it used Kusaba).
>everything remains the same
the site is way, way more boring now than it was in 2015, you know it's true.
Speaking of which
Pigfarmer I found a cp board for you to shoah
Every imageboard deteriorates in the same fashion with only variations in the time it takes.
/b/ completely went down the shitter, /pol/ became a ferocious shill-calling paranoid hugbox, /tv/ became /b/ 2.0, a bunch of fun small boards died and got replaced by a ton of garbage. Oh well.
>a bunch of fun small boards died
>Pedos declare that the site is finished. Nothing happens, Everything remains the same
This is what actually happened.
>Jim takes over the site
>Pedos declare that the site is finished
>Pedoshits create their own website, librechan which is a rip-off of 8chan, just like .pl was
>Pedoshits run their own website for a while
>The cost of running the site starts to overwhelm its creator
>Pedoshits are too paranoid to help him out financially
>Site goes under
>Pedoshits return to /b/
>Everything remains the same
Yeah everythings remained the same on 4chan since the normalfag takeover too, right?
you act as if this site isn't infested with normalfags too
>Pedos declare that the site is finished. Nothing happens, Everything remains the same
And they all lived happily ever after on fucking /b/.
I was being sarcastic, of course things have changed and of course 8chan is going through the same normalfag infestation that 4chan went through.
Who would have thought ousting the existing userbase to cater to normalfags just like 4chan did would have the same end result?
Didn't /hebe/ turn out to be run by a tranny for the purpose of shitmagneting pedos to 8chan? I heard a lot about it, but I never got to see the proof.
Jim should have set up honeypots co operated with LEO and had them arrested. Just kicking them off site was too lenient. Pedos deserve no mercy
You may be stupid enough to go to 8chan bareback but pedos aren't.
>the site is way, way more boring now
You know what they say, opinions are like assholes.
>Pedos declare that the site is finished. Nothing happens, Everything remains the same
The site has much fewer users now than it did at that time, even though that's mostly due to the incompetence of the admins and other brain-dead people involved with the site driving people off.
Librechan got shoaed by its host.
I seriously wish we could have a moderation reformation of some sort, all the top 5 boards need it
That's not going to happen. Just let the idea go. The people who are dissatisfied with the moderation on the top 5 boards need to exodus to a new board.
If the new board is a dead board, that means there isn't truly enough people dissatisfied. That's just how it works. If you've got 100 people on one board and 3 of them are angry, then nothing will change. If you've got 100 people on one board and 97 of them are angry, then those 97 will leave to a new board and the original board will die.
"Legacy" should not be an issue because 8chan has several boards that didn't exist on any *chan before and they're doing just fine.
>The people who are dissatisfied with the moderation on the top 5 boards need to exodus to a new board.
>"Legacy" should not be an issue because 8chan has several boards that didn't exist on any *chan before and they're doing just fine.
In a perfect world that's how it'd work, but most top boards are legacy boards or encompass the same field such as /tech/ which is essentially /g/ under a different name, and the remainder are region-specific boards in the vein of Krautchan and a scatter of legitimate original/niche boards. The newest one I can recall seeing is /thestorm/ which is more or less a stormfag bunker for /pol/. There's a very goodly amount of users that still identify under the 4chan board-names no matter how hard they cry cuckchan and how betrayed they are by the father-site.
the only even remotely successful alternative board to a legacy board is /polk/
Daily reminder that the BO of /polk/ is extremely pro-Israel and there is not a single far-right board on this site where the owner isn't some controlled opposition kike.
If you want a far-right site, go to Stormfront.
>In a perfect world
If you can't make your own perfect world, then the problem is your own. Stop making excuses.
The only reason we have /tech/ rather than /g/ is that /g/ was in use for something else at the time.
Not to mention the original /g/ on 4chan was the guro board, and /t/ was already used at the time.
moot is an idort.
there's a part of me that misses mootykins, while i'll never forgive him for selling 4chan i can't help but miss the faggot
/late/, /kind/, /8lounge/, /tikilounge/, /ebola/, /cure/, /mu/, /his/, /int/ all died.
1. Pedos still post on 8ch boards freely and without difficulty.
2. But they only do so on certain boards.
What can we infer from this? Well for starters we can infer that some board owners have figured out a way to keep the pedos from posting on their boards. If that is the case then it is reasonable to assume that whatever they are doing could be implemented on all boards to effectively keep pedos off the site entirely. Or at least a hell of a lot better than it is being done now.
So if boards can do something about a situation, but aren't doing it, the logical implication is that they are allowing that situation to exist by choice.
Since it is a situation that exists by choice, nobody really has a right to complain about it apart from telling the admins that you are leaving the site because of that policy. None of us run the site, so we don't get to make those decisions. And if we stay, we are by our actions accepting the decisions that have been made in this regard. You can not legitimately complain about something which you have already willingly accepted.
This site has pedo content. By choice. As a user, if you don't want to see it, or if you don't want to be associated with it, you should leave. As an admin, if you don't want it on your site, then do something about it that you know is effective. Clearly some BO's have figured it out. Just mandate that all BO's do the same thing and you are done with this issue. Otherwise, understand and accept that everyone will know that you are welcoming and allowing pedo content by choice.
>/mu/ and /his/
>in the same list as retarded shit that doesn't matter
/min/ was another cool little board
died about a year ago
I wish that there were a pedo version of 8ch to contain them on another domain, a great number of my (high quality posting) friends browse halfchan and I can't bring up 8ch without alienating them because of certain boards on here being featured in the top bar. Of course, Jim cleverly uses the legitimate high traffic boards here to mask them- a site like that would be extremely difficult to maintain on the clearnet.
Pedos confirmed for keeping normalfags out.
in other words we need more pedos
pedos are the cancer that comes with being a leftist
So report the boards to all the anti pedo sites on social media and let them do something.
then why are you here instead of 4chan? 4chan went through great lengths to get rid of pedos and replace them with normalfags by forcing everyone to do captchas with every post if they don't get rid of their anonymity by paying for a pass and prohibiting the use of every proxy and vpn they can find.
Sounds like the perfect place for you.
>4chan went through great lengths to get rid of pedos and replace them with normalfags
So is 8chan. Jim doesn't want you pedos here either. Looks like no one wants anything to do with you. You pedokikes are too delusional to believe that other than you pedo fuckers anyone else wants anything to do with you
Hotwheels welcomed pedos to the site just like he welcomed anyone because he had a passion for free speech and 8chan was actually a viable alternative to 4chan back then and was at the height of its popularity because of it.
Now this is 4chan lite and its festering away because it serves no purpose whatsoever with jim running it exactly like 4chan.
4chans heyday was when it allowed pedos and then it slowly went to shit after it ousted pedos to cater to normalfags.
8chans heyday was when it allowed pedos and now its slowly going to shit for ousting pedos and trying to cater to normalfags but no normalfag will come here when 4chan exists.
So now the only reason 8chan still exists is for jim to shill his goldwater site to the dwindling userbase that was only attracted to this place to begin with because of hotwheels.
I used to be heavily involved in an imageboard that "welcomed" pedophiles. As in, pedophiles showed up for a bit. They started posting images. The images were very innocent… but the reasoning they were being posted was obvious. So, posting the images was disallowed, but discussing pedophilia was fine. This angered them, and they started attacking the website.
I don't think a lot of people understand this: When pedos are disallowed, it's not usually to "cater to normalsfags" as you say. It's just to comply with the law or the TOS of your hosting. If Jim wanted to cater to normalfags, wouldn't he ditch /pol/? Wouldn't he remove basically all the content that makes 8chan 8chan in the first place? He's not doing that, because he's not catering to normalfags when he bans pedophilic content. He's probably covering his own ass.
It's honestly a sad state of affairs that even lolicon is banned in several parts of the United States. 3D pedo content? It's enough to get you labled as a pedophile and to get your life destroyed. Pedophiles are some of the most technically adept people I've ever met. They have a very good grasp on security, because they understand the risks associated with their fetish, or, love of children, as I've heard some of them call it. To be called a pedophile is the lowest of the low – Almost everyone would probably consider you "unhuman" for it. Jim probably doesn't want that. Jim also probably wants to keep 8chan up. Maybe he wants to keep 8chan up for greedy reasons. Maybe he feels a duty in doing so. I can't tell you.
Pedophiles should have a place to speak. I absolutely, 100% agree with that. You shouldn't ban pedophiles for simply being pedophiles. But pedophiles also have to understand that direct pedophilic content may be removed for legal reasons.
>that delusional pedo screed
>everything is good as long as pedos are associated with it.
If you peokikes are so great how come 8chan which was so "good" when you peodkike were allowed didn't exodus to wherever you sick fucks went?
The only people who want to hang out with pedos are other pedos. Everyone else wants to be rid of you.
>a passion for free speech
Nice meme. Its actually freedom to create your own board.
>So now the only reason 8chan still exists is for Jim blah blah blah
In other words pedokikes are not wanted here just like they are not wanted on 4chan or any other place on the internet
Whenever I speak with a friend and I ask them why they don't use 8chan, the answer is usually "it's filled with cp" even though Jim got rid of the "CP" ages ago. Then I tell them that and they go look at /pol/, and their usual reaction is "Wow, there's hardly any shitposting here!".
Then they stop using 4chan for a while, and assimilate well. I hope the pedophile reputation of 8chan goes away eventually.
It angers them because when even you admit that they're perfectly innocent pictures and thus aren't a threat to the site in any way and they're being disallowed from posting them for seemingly no reason wouldn't that make you mad if its something you wanted to post?
This site ran for years allowing that kind of content and it wasn't busted by the feds or anything because hothwheels made sure whatever was allowed was legal.
Jim didn't ban pedos to cover his ass he banned them because he hates them. If he cared about covering his own ass he would of actually looked into what he was hosting on his servers for MONTHS before he even became admin and realized that pedo content was all over this site but he didn't because he doesn't give a shit about this place.
As for not ditching /pol/ he doesn't do it because he likes /pol/. When he selectively decided to oust pedos the day he became admin that set a precedent that anything he allows on this site is something that hes okay with.
So the beastiality board /zoo/ thats still here? Yeah it'd be no surprise to me that its still there because jim likes it and considering he has an all female pig farm thats no big leap.
If you weren't such a newfag you'd know that when everyone was attempting an exodus the day after jim fucked our shit up they were all attempting to go to different places which basically assured an exodus wouldn't work because nobody could agree on where to go.
Yeah its not like exactly what you're talking about is the kind of faggotry that turned 4chan into what it is today or anything.
To be fair, hotwheels has had access to difficult-to-find hosting that lets that sort of stuff stay up. Take DigitalOcean for example, they'll gladly shut you down for it. E-mail support for practically any webhost detailing what you want to have uploaded, and they'll also tell you no. I've tried to accommodate both lolicon and zoophilia, and it's a very hard thing to do while maintaining speed, reliability, etc. The "free speech imageboard" thing is very hard to pull off. Props to Fred for doing it so well while he was here. I can understand being mad as well… I think people should be allowed to post whatever they want, because those images are probably entirely legal. They're pictures of kids taken off VK. Is it illegal because of the context they appear? Who knows. I'm not a lawyer. 8chan should have one. The burden of hosting a free speech website is a lot more than what it looks, especially in 2017. Even hosting a /pol/ is rather difficult because most VPS providers will shut you down for merely having content that says "nigger" too much. Pedos shouldn't be ousted, nor should furries, nor should /zoo/ or any board that isn't direct 3D child pornography. 3D child pornography is actual, real, child exploitation. Pictures from VK aren't.
You make good points about Jim. I've never particularly trusted him. I can't trust commercial imageboard administrators. Every single one has been bad other than HW. Josh, 4chan staff (including moot), and Jim too.
hotwheels is dead dude
they targeted gamers.
I know that angers me every day
the #1 pedophile site on the net
I know gamers. gamers are the most powerful group on the planet.
never doubt a gamer
i know i know your not
yes proud and tall gamers
gamers are the truth
what's this bot running for
Hotwheels was in contact with a lawyer yet he still allowed pedos to post their shit here so I think its safe to say that it was legal. I understand where you're coming from about finding the right host for a free speech site being difficult but I'm sure it would have worked out eventually had hotwheels avoided jim and taken another route.
I wish I lived in that timeline instead of this one, even if it didn't work out a mercy killing would have been preferable to watching 8chan devolve the same way 4chan has.
Just trying to steal the get it looks like.
>an exodus wouldn't work because nobody could agree on where to go.
The exodus didn't work because no one else other than pedos wanted to go where you sick fucks went. The event that made 8chan what it is today was gamergate. Gamergate exodus anons only tolerated you because you were already here and Cuckwheels wouldn't kick you out. This is why mostly no one other than pedos had any problems when Jim BTFO you lot. There was no exodus because no one cared that he fucked up your boards. Not even the anons of the so called "8chan that was so good"
Hotwheels was in the situation where 8chan was about to get shut down when the gamergate exodus happened because he couldn't afford to pay the bill that came with all the new bandwidth usage. That is when Jim and 2channel came in and offered to host 8chan. These pedos have a funny way to twisting history.
>he still allowed pedos to post their shit here so I think its safe to say that it was legal.
If that is true then you pedos should have no problems recreating your glorious imageboard. Instead of whining about a cripple go do it yourself.
/pol/s exodus from 4chan was bigger than /v/s so no you're wrong. Gamergate was a factor yes but not THE event that made 8chan what it is today.
Stop trying to rewrite history, the majority of the new chans popping up and shilling their site here after jims fuck up didn't even allow pedo content either.
If it was only pedos and everyone else just loved jim then why can we barely even muster half the post count on this site that we used to get back when hotwheels was in charge?
You really think pedos were making half the posts on this site?
>These pedos have a funny way to twisting history.
How ironic, what actually happened is that the opponents of gamergate constantly DDOS'd the site until it was down more than it was up and then reported to the 8chan.co host that 8chan was hosting child pornography so the host shut down the site and refused to give hotwheels the domain back.
Then jim came and offered to host it on his servers and just so happened to have an 8ch.net domain hotwheels could use, how convenient.
>you pedos should have no problems recreating your glorious imageboard.
Do you have brain problems? Just because its legal doesn't mean you can magically create a thriving imageboard filled with users.
8chan wasn't even popular for the first year until moot fucked up, if he hadn't fucked up then 8chan would still be a dead board like the countless others there are on the internet.
> Gamergate was a factor yes but not THE event that made 8chan what it is today.
Gamergate absolutely was what made 8chan what it is today. /pol/ harbor came later but by then 8chan had a strong userbase. Without gamergate almost no one would even know 8chan even existed.
>How ironic, what actually happened is that the opponents of gamergate constantly DDOS'd the site until it was down more than it was up and then reported to the 8chan.co host that 8chan was hosting child pornography so the host shut down the site and refused to give hotwheels the domain back.
Nice twisting of history there pedo but that event where Lizard Squad DDosed 8chan while anti GG reported 8chan and where 8chan.co domain was lost came much later and when that event happened Jim was already hosting 8chan. You seem to confuse the domain name ownership and hosting.
>Just because its legal doesn't mean you can magically create a thriving imageboard
According to you pedos 8chan was a quality imageboard with quality posters until Jim took over and ruined it. If this was really true then I wonder no one is able to recreate this quality imageboard
It was trying to get the >>66666 get.
>Lizard Squad DDosed 8chan
Jim ddos'd 8chan.
I'm not sure why you're trying to protect Jim or where you got 'Lizard Squad DDosee 8chan' but fuck off Jim shill.
"/pol/ harbor" came DAYS later after /pol/ dug into moots history to figure out why he was acting the way he was and found out he was hanging out with SJWs and was getting friendzoned by one while another man fucks her.
So they start calling him a cuck and making all these memes about him which caused him to basically nuke their board and make it unusable, thats why cuck is the meaningless insult thats thrown around everywhere today.
I don't know how in the fuck you think jim was hosting BOTH 8chan.co and 8ch.net or that lizard squad was the one doing the DDOSing but that couldn't be further from the truth, I was there watching the shitshow unfold day after day so I know what happened and you trying to rewrite history isn't going to work on me.
No one is able to recreate what happened to 8chan because 4chan has already been entirely cucked and its not going to get another exodus that invigorates another imageboard.
They're perfectly fine with chink moot turning 4chan into a malicious botnet so why the fuck would they care about anything that happens enough to leave 4chan to go somewhere else?
>"/pol/ harbor" came DAYS later after /pol/ dug into moots history to figure out why he was acting the way he was
That was not /pol/ harbor. /pol/ harbor was when m00t purposely fucked up their /pol/ by removing captcha and allowing the board to be spammed to death for a few days.
>I don't know how in the fuck you think jim was hosting BOTH 8chan.co and 8ch.net
He was not 'hosting' 8ch.net. Jim owned the domain name 8ch.net. When cuckwheels lost the 8chan.co domain name temporarily Jim offered the 8ch.net domain name. Hosting and domain name are two different things. Jim was already hosting 8chan even while it was using the 8chan.co domain name. This is why when Lizard squad DDosed 8chan not just 8chan but even 2channel got affected because some parts of their website too was hosted on the same servers as 8chan.
>lizard squad was the one doing the DDOSing but that couldn't be further from the truth, I was there watching the shitshow unfold day after day so I know what happened and you trying to rewrite history isn't going to work on me.
I don't give a fuck what you believe. Anons who were there and remember the event clearly will clearly understand you don't know what the fuck you are talking about. I am even beginning to doubt you are from around here. Your knowledge of 8chan history is very patchy
>No one is able to recreate what happened to 8chan because 4chan has already been entirely cucked and its not going to get another exodus that invigorates another imageboard.
>They're perfectly fine with chink moot turning 4chan into a malicious botnet so why the fuck would they care about anything that happens enough to leave 4chan to go somewhere else?
I didn't say anything about 4chan. I am asking why anons from glorious pre Jim 8chan follow you pedos to recreate glorious pre Jim 8chan. And don't give me pathetic excuses like no one could agree whereto go. If it was so glorious that shouldn't be an excuse
/pol/ Harbor / 2014 Exodus
On December 7th, 2014, the administration of 4chan trolled the /pol/ board by altering its settings and directing the users of other boards to raid it under the guise of testing new features. Among the notable occurrences was the disabling of the board’s CAPTCHA system and the filtering of several popular words and phrases, such as the replacement of “free” with “hot pockets”. The board was also renamed ‘’The 8 steps of cuckolding’‘, and each post was marked with horizontally scrolling text reading [trigger warning]. Although 4chan’s /pol/ was soon restored to its original state, the event triggered a mass exodus of users to the /pol/ board of 8chan, a popular alternative to 4chan.
>I don't give a fuck what you believe.
Same here. This is the first time I've heard the claim that 'Lizard Squad DDosed 8chan' and hopefully the last time. Something that I hadn't heard for the first time was that 'Jim DDoS'd 8chan to kike HW out for 8chan thus 8ch.net instead of 8ch.co.' So once again: Fuck off Jim shill.
>/pol/ harbor was when m00t purposely fucked up their /pol/ by removing captcha and allowing the board to be spammed to death for a few days.
If you actually read what I wrote after that you'd know thats exactly what I was talking about.
>Jim was already hosting 8chan even while it was using the 8chan.co domain name.
Prove it, I know for a fact thats not the case.
>Anons who were there and remember the event clearly will clearly understand
Except the only other anon here also thinks you're full of shit so oops.
>And don't give me pathetic excuses like no one could agree whereto go. If it was so glorious that shouldn't be an excuse
This must be bait.
Not only are you two pedo clowns not from around here, it appears you are clinically retarded. Just when a simple internet search would have prevented you two jokers from putting your foot in your mouth even farther
So lets recap the amazing pearls we have heard from the pedo clowns today
1) /pol/ harbor happened 'a few days' after the gamergate exodus
2) Never heard of Lizard Squad DDoSing 8chan
3) Jim wasn't hosting 8chan when it got DDosed and had its 8chan.co domain name seized.
I want you two pedo jokers to double down further on these 3 claims. Now I may or may not provide proof to finally BTFO you 2 clowns but not until I have had my fun. Until now I gave you two the benefit of doubt that you might be part of the pedos that pre existed gamergate exodus on 8chan. Now I am 100% sure you two kike clowns never touched in the site any earlier than 2014. You are probably a couple of sick fucks that got drawn to the 8chan reputation much later.
Anyone got any proofs
Nope. No one has any proof. Pedo wonderland is always right
No but seriously I googled the Jimmening and read a few articles and I can't find anything on Lizard Squad and 8chan.
Me too. When I search for Lizard Squad and 8chan DDoS on Duck Duck Go Go nothing shows up. I have no idea what this Jim Shill is talking about
Jim did DDoS 8chan.co but maybe he paid Lizard Squad to DDoS it for him? Idk judt spit balling rn.
Agreed. I wouldn't put it past a freemason like Jimbo to pay Lizard squad to DDoS the server on which 8chan was hosted even though part of 2channel was hosted there.
Jim DDoSed had his own server DDoSed by Lizard Squad so that he could take control of 8chan and mine shekels from good goys. I think this theory makes perfect sense. Don't you think so?
It's just the right amount of convuloted kikery from Jim, so yes I think so. I don't know so but it's plausible.
>Yes it's plausible that Jim paid to have his own servers DDosed and cause 2ch downtime to steal a website that makes no money that he was already hosting
The only one making a fool out of himself is you, and you'll continue to do so with every post until you actually provide proof for the ridiculous claims that noone else can seem to find any evidence for.
Yet he DDoS'd his host anyway. How is it not plausible for him to pay Lizard Squad? I'm not saying it happened, I'm saying given we're talking about Jim then it's not uncharacteristic for him to do something like this.
After digging around a bit I think this is where hes getting his info from: https://8ch.net/who.html
>Don't trust the "erroneous" wikipedia and encyclopedia daramticas take on the history
>trust jims version of the history instead
HOW ABOUT NO?
It was written by Hotwheels, moron. But of course retarded newfags who believe whatever fits their assumptions and who make up whatever is convenient are the real experts on what happened.
Anyone got proofs
I feel like I've seen this exact post
gone too soon, so young, so tight
>It was written by Hotwheels
And Jim left it up.
>Anyone got proofs
Why would he take it down?
>Yet he DDoS'd his host anyway.
Jim IS the host.
>lol he DDoS'd himself of course, typical Jim xD
There are SO MANY PEOPLE who hate 8chan and want it to die, especially back then, but the only person you can imagine paying to have it DDoS'd and have its domain stolen is its own host. And why? Just because he removed your pedoshit, the same shit that made people file reports against 8chan to the point where the domain was seized in the first place.
Anyone got any proofs
you've been asking for two days now, just give it up already. no one is going to give you proof because they can't. they're trying to mislead you but it's obviously not working on you but for other anons i don't think i can say the same.
I think he knows theres no proof hes just asking every time they post to make it clear to people who may be mislead that they're just baseless claims.
Ah well if that's the case then bump
i could of sworn the pedos migrated to lolicox (fox)
Only the cancerous tripfag ones that everyone else hates.
Pedos will post here no matger how much you push and shove. They are cancer.
>waaah give me my anti pedo safe space so I can tell all my normalfag friends about this place and turn it into the same shitheap that 4chan is now
How about no?
no they moved to librechan then that place got kill
What year do you think it is?
