The festering armpit of the internet, 4chan is an image-based messageboard that is singlehandedly responsible for more stupid internet memes than any other site on the web. From LOLCATS to Rickrolling to "Chocolate Rain", 4chan is the #1 site on the internet for totally moronic crap. ----------------------------------- FROM WIKIPEDIA: 4chan is an English-language imageboard website based on the Japanese-language Futaba Channel. Launched on October 1, 2003 by "moot" ("Christopher Poole"), its boards are based primarily around the posting of pictures and discussion of Japanese comics and television shows. Users generally post anonymously, and the site has been linked to "Anonymous" culture and Project Chanology. The Guardian describes 4chan as "at once brilliant, ridiculous and alarming." 4chan's "/b/" board, dedicated to random postings, is the most active and is notorious on the Internet; Gawker.com claimed in jest that "reading /b/ will melt your brain". The site has generated significant media attention, and its members have been responsible for the formation and popularization of several Internet memes such as lolcats, rickrolling, and the popularity of the Tay Zonday song "Chocolate Rain". It has also received media attention for its attacks against other websites and Internet users, and for the threats of real world violence that have been posted on it.
