I’m on a sabbatical from everything but some mild Skyping for various reasons (mostly involving school and trying to get a handle on proper adult behavior like…living and…finances…awareness…those kind’ve things…see previous personal post when I had a mental breakdown, I’m better, not great, but better). However, as a combination former 4chan /co/mrade and current Tumblr blogger, I have some words for you people.
First of all, a question: On a scale of one to invade Russia in the winter, just how bad is your idea?
Answer: Russia vs. the White Death of Finland in the Winter War. That fucking bad.
You Tumblr SJWs think you can shut down 4chan. 4chan, the site that has successfully dodged more DDOS attacks than The Pirate Bay itself. The site that has hacked the fucking government on several occasions. The site that has made Fox News shit its collective pants, helped expose Scientology as the cult that it is, that has hunted down and brought pedophiles and animal abusers alike to justice. That 4chan?
You complain of their triggering and offensive material. And I agree, the site is goddamn offensive, and I have a much higher tolerance than the average Tumblr-user, given that I was hardened to their preferred weapons of gorn and slurs through the very hate machine itself.
Newsflash though: Most of them are assholes for the sake of being assholes. You can’t try to ‘reeducate’ them, quite a few of them already know better but enjoy seeing you froth at the mouth and lose your minds over being offended because it makes you look like just as big an asshole as them. They don’t make qualms about what they are. They know they’re horrible. And that’s never going to change. But if they can make someone look like a fool with just a few well-placed pictures or ‘harmful’ words, they can and will do so.
Let me pose a hypothetical situation to you #shutdown4chan people in hopes you might understand better, in case it isn’t obvious by now.
No doubt you’ve seen a hornet’s nest. You know hornets are horrid nasty creatures made of pain and rage and flying, stinging death (unlike their wonderful cousins the bees who don’t mean us any intentional harm and just wanna make us food delicious food and pretty flowers). You don’t need to be stung by a hornet to know this, though it helps, because their reputation already precedes them from those who have been stung, not to mention they just plain look terrifying. Now, let’s say this particular hornet’s nest isn’t even your average hornet’s nest, let’s say this nest is like…oh…the unholy offspring of Japanese hornets and Tracker Jackers, yes, that’s suitably terrifying, I think.
(In case it still isn’t:)
(This is what your nightmares have nightmares about.)
And not only that, attempts to kill this nest have ended in painful, agonizing FAILURE. Poison hasn’t worked, smoke hasn’t worked, vibrating overheater bee swarms haven’t worked. Fire cannot even kill this dragon…er. Hornet. There’s currently a pile of corpses from professional exterminators piled around the tree the nest is hanging in. It’s got a reputation that has sent, like, the last six previous owners of the house running to Antarctica to get away from it.
A smart person would avoid this nest even if it means it’s an eyesore in your yard. A smart person would be stung perhaps ONCE and then never so much as look at it. Or perhaps take the advice of his/her/their predecessor and flee for Antarctica, because leopard seals are only slightly less terrifying.
What you people are doing? You are essentially poking this gigantic hornet’s nest. Repeatedly. And you didn’t even bother to wear some form of protective clothing, you’re essentially out there with your unpacified tits in the breeze.
So please, for your own sakes. As someone who has witnessed this hate machine in action, take my advice:
Leave the goddamn hornet’s nest alone.
Or I am gonna sit back and watch this bloodbath with popcorn while you folks die screaming.
