I look upon Leeky Forums Leeky Forums and all I feel is sadness, there is nobody left who gives a fuck it seems, its just an endless sea of shitposting, shills, and porn, no pride, nothing, its all a hollow empty shell

And I tried to fucking warn the few who still showed signs of caring, but they disregarded me "We need more people!" they said "Take the heh pill!" they said

Well you took the fucking pill friend, and are you happy? This board is shit, and not shit like the usual Leeky Forums levels of shit, I mean this is a horrible board to even discuss shit, full of horrible people, and not horrible in the usual Leeky Forums way, I mean horrible as in you are too retarded to even be horrible in the usual Leeky Forums way

And in the end I don't think it was the website falling to software rot that killed boards like this, I think it was the negative, drama-whoring shills that killed boards like this, and the moderation just sit back and let it happen, not grasping the concept that free speech is impossible if you cannot be given a platform to express it

Maybe the shills are the feds, the alphabet agencies, that's the only explanation, it takes a few seconds to make a shitpost, sure, but this sheer level of shit can only be achieved through concentrated effort, people are paid to make this board shit, because on a board where logical discussion is impossible people can't organize and do shit IRL, its obviously the reason

man take a look at /pol/ these days
it's literally nothing but trump spam

the moment you even say "hey guys, things aren't looking to good for trump, i hope clinton gets indicted" you get a response of "SAGESAGESAGE CANT STUMP THE TRUMP AYY LMAO XD TRUMPTRUMPTRUMP"
it seems they took the kool aid and aren't even capable of basic critical thinking and refutation

i was expecting to get btfo but they cant even give reasons for their support of trump
it's sad
if they can't even take basic questioning how the hell are they supposed to withstand hardcore sjw bullshit

as an ex-/pol/ack I kind of get when they do that, /pol/ is a very tight-knit community, when there is an outsider, not only is it immediately apparent, but when they direct a question so many people have asked already it gets tiring repeating the same answers, I guess they just want people to lurk moar instead of making unproductive threads, its hard for newcommers to understand though, especially when they come off as harsh reporting and filtering you, but that's just how they are m8

i do lurk though, and it's the same every time. i've seen berniefags bring statistics and arguments and it always end the same way. i'm not saying there are no arguments to be made, but they don't make them. i guess i was under the false impression that /pol/ was supposed to be a place for at least semi-serious political discussion, rather than just shills.

I have been spending fuck all time on Leeky Forums for the last 6 months, the only thing that could have save it is decisive action by the BO but he refused to act while the board died.

Maybe the shills are the feds, the alphabet agencies, that's the only explanation
They are SJWs and goons, they have spent the last 18 months trying to kill this place and have finally succeeded.

It's sad to see a legacy board like Leeky Forums die this way but thankfully there are alt boards run by competent BOs.

A sizable number of Trump voters are independents, which means they aren't allowed to vote in the primaries in many states, come general election I can easily see Trump destroying Hillary.

Trumps victory is uncertain, /pol/ knows this deep down, the reason why they shill out like they do is to boost their morale, these are pretty fucking scary times when there is a possibility Hillary could win. But what keeps people going and shilling is there is a very real possibility Trump could win as well, its just better to show pride and express your support for the one you want to win in these horrifyingly uncertain times, I'm terrified of whats ahead, and deep down /pol/ is too
Trump is so fucking close to victory yet so far at the same time its just fucking killing me

h8chan was never close to those numbers, ~10k of us cared enough to leave and another couple of thousand only ended up here because they were banned on halfchan.
Still 2014 reminded me of halfchan around 2007 before it went downhill badly, it was nice to see a community like that live again even if it was only for a few months.

@TechHater
Nice thread. I agree with the other user, it doesn't lend itself to discussion so many just lurk without posting except for the shitposters that always post no matter what.

Thanks for the positive feed back user.

I used to do a different topic every week or so until we had all the tech problems.

I decided to start back up after the repairs were done.

I will stay and continue to do the same.

Not everyone likes to take time to look at photos, I understand that.
I love photographs and enjoy sharing them with other user that
feel the same way.

I do get some "thank yous" in the threads I make so
it's not all for nothing. It was just more fun when we had a larger user base.

I've been saying this for years

the reason why 4chan was so great before Scientology and shit was because it was homogeneous, not homogeneous because it was a hugbox, but homogeneous because it was where like-minded people got together to have great discussions ,

the internet is too big for that today, what happened with 4chan in the early days, that magic, could only have happened in that time and place in history, the magic is gone now my friends

The best time to post is between 2am and 5am pacific time since it seems the majority of flooders are asleep. I don't know where I'll go after this Leeky Forums dies for good, (inb4 it already hasn't?) probably ill just quit the Internet. I only use my laptop for 8ch, YouTube, animation, video editing and photoshop. It's looking like ill be ditching 8ch and YouTube around the same time. It's not only Leeky Forums that's going to shit harder than usual, it's the whole planet. The zeitgeist is on misinformation dumification overload and it shows. Movies, politics, news, people, games all fucking trash now.

@hairygrape
At a guess I would say a heap of people just didn't use any imageboard for a week or 2 as halfchan was even shitter than usual with every thread being derailed into "jewt is a cuck" and Leeky Forums spam.

As for the ~10k number I remember Leeky Forums, /v/ and /pol/ sitting around 7k users each and I assumed there would be a lot of cross traffic.
http://stats.4ch.net/8chan/ once provided great info but it's dead now.

Funny, the internet used to be worth its monthly fee but I'm actually starting to question wither its worth it anymore, weird when you think about it, they say the internet is one of mans greatest achievements, but I'm starting to think its overrated as fuck, like I've been fucking cheated

On /newspaper/index.html is an OC thread with plenty of them.

@whereismyname
I think there were various reasons:

/pol/ exodus
The first wave came here because of censorship and the faggotry of moot. We had a common ground and similar reasons to leave 4chan. The second wave were /pol/lacks which did NOT leave because of this. They first needed moot to fuck around with them even more before jumping ship. Those guys didn't care about censorship, they had different reasons. It was the first notable drop of quality, especially concerning 8chans /pol/, which hadn't been that bad before.

4chan faggots using Leeky Forums as a second choice replacement board when they got b&
During the early months people told "b& on 4chins" faggots to fuck off, same went for typical 4chan style threads à la traps and cock rating. Somehow that stopped, and now, well, just look at the catalog.

GamerGate wearing off
With shrinking anger about the whole drama many anons left Leeky Forums, which wasn't a good thing.

Hotwheels stopped giving a fuck
No matter what you think about e-celebs, HW was one of us. With him not caring anymore, a lot of anons stopped caring as well.

technical issues
I actually can understand everyone leaving for a site that actually fucking works. I still don't get why the fuck this shit hasn't been fixed in MONTHS. Probably it's because Hotwheels doesn't give a shit anymore, but I had this one already.
