I know that this probably belongs on /soc/ or /jp/, but I really need to get this off my chest.

I've been on 4chan a very long time. I started lurking in 2004 with a few posts here and there, but I didn't start posting a lot until around 2008. I watched what was once a good board devolve into the dump that it is today. I remember a time when /b/ used to move slower than /a/ currently moves. I remember when Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece threads weren't spammed or dubs bombed - They were IGNORED. A few staple tripfaggots discussed them every week, the threads got to the bump limit, and they fell off the board. Nobody argued and complained because they were IGNORED. But I digress; that is not what I'm ranting about.

Tripfags have existed since the dawn of 4chan. Very few tripfags from the past remain on /a/ today. They come, have their few minutes of fame, and they leave. Likewise, spam also isn't too annoying. A guy spams the board and threads for a few days, and he leaves. You think today's Accelerator spam is bad? Then you weren't here during the times of Wikispam, gore spam, multi-colored pic spam, etc. Accelerator spam is NOTHING in comparison.

What I'm here to complain about today is KoG. I used to think KoG was one of those kids who would be around for a couple of months and then die off. I thought he was going to be a flash in the pan. Sure, he got a couple of 5s, and he got quints maybe ONCE a month, but that was no big deal. He did eventually retire mid-2008, and I thought it was over. But he came back. He came back, got quints more frequently, did some other things, and eventually retired again at the start of 2010. Again, I naively thought that it was all over. How could KoG POSSIBLY come back after he's accomplished all there is to do? Apparently, I was wrong. Let me take a brief moment and explain what KoG does and why it is so effective.

>> No.8168091

yeah, yeah, read it before.

>> No.8168092

Ever see a post end in 777 with something like "Wow, that sure was lucky!" or a post ending in 223 with "223.jpg"? This is what is known as GET Contexting. By contexting, KoG can go for GETs without you even realizing it. Say KoG says something like, "Dude, that's plain evil." and has the post end in 668. The untrained eye will completely ignore this post unless you know what to look for. On the other hand, if it ends in 666, KoG can samefag reply with ">evil, >666", and then people will believe this to be either a coincidence or a clever response. It is NOT clever. 99% of the time, all replies like this are completely planned. Finally, another method KoG uses is GET Spamming.

I'm not talking about people who spam Bateman images into a thread with very little success. I'm talking about targeted, successful triples in a row. Ever see a thread where it's full of triples, yet most of the posts don't seem to be relating to GETs at all? Then, KoG will magically come into the thread, quote those posts, and delete them. This, in turn, completely DESTROYS a thread. Everybody's so focused on the fact that any post in the thread can be KoG that they just shut down the discussion altogether. This is an effective tool that KoG uses to kill any threads that he doesn't like, although he also makes threads on subjects he doesn't like, pretend to discuss them, then kill his own thread and turn it into a GET thread.

>> No.8168087

In order to last on 4chan, you need to be successful. SHiN has been able to stay for years because you all won't shut up about his waifu, Kagami. SHiN "betrayed" Kagami? Nonsense. He simply does that to get you to talk about him. Every time you sage his threads with a betrayal message, all it does is give him attention. Likewise, KoG has survived time and time again because you all give him attention. I once thought that KoG did nothing but samefag his thread with reaction images every time he got a GET, and that is indeed the case in the majority of his threads, but I also see many posts that are timed too close together. ALL the posts reacting to KoG aren't KoG samefagging. There are actually people who egg KoG on and beg him to get consecutive numbers. KoG has been able to gain attention using something I like to call the Baka Effect.

The Baka Effect is simple: Increase the odds of getting a reaction by making it as favorable as possible of obtaining a desirable number. What this means is that if you can trick /a/ into thinking that you can get 554, 555, or 556 and think it means something, you should do it at your discretion. KoG has this board tricked into thinking that Cirno getting a 776 or a 112 actually MEANS something. It means that she's a baka. "Look at that baka," "BAKA BAKA", "cirno_crying.jpg", etc. This used to only be restricted to a string of 0s. Now, KoG has you believing that ANY time Cirno is off by 1, it warrants reaction. Also, KoG has mastered the art of contexting.

>> No.8168093

I have been on /a/ longer than most. I have seen multiple forms, shapes, and sizes of cancer. I've seen cancer that has hit this board hard and be gone in less than a week, and I've seen cancer linger for months on end. KoG isn't a cancer. KoG is the flu. He comes on /a/ at random intervals, does his thing, and leaves. You can vaccinate yourself by hiding his threads, but since he uses new images per day with different file names and sizes, there's no way to block him completely. Unlike cancer that kills its target and then vanishes, KoG doesn't kill. He sticks around, day after day, making /a/ sicker and sicker. I know none of you want to admit this, but KoG is now a BOARD CULTURE. Nobody outside of /a/ really cares much about KoG. Most of the people you see on /b/, /v/, /sp/, etc., that overreact to any GETs KoG gets there go to /a/ to begin with.

Even if KoG were to leave tomorrow, he is so embedded into /a/ that people will be talking about him for years and years. Just look at what happened in summer of 2010. Bateman's faggotry was so bad that people on /a/ WANTED KoG back. When he did come back, /a/ was literally OVERJOYED by the fact that he was back (check /a/'s archive if you don't believe me). Then, as soon as KoG assimilated Bateman into his repertoire, he became a flu stronger and more vibrant than ever. As I post here today on /a/, I type with a heavy heart that KoG, at least, as the concept of GETs, is never going to go away. 57777777 in less than 24 hours, 66666666, 99999999 many years from now; /a/ will STILL cream their pantsu every time a bunch of consecutive or pattern-based numbers come around.

>> No.8168095

You know what the saddest part about all of this is? moot can stop it at any time he wants. He wouldn't even have to ban a single person. There are many methods to be used to accomplish this goal - implementing the same numbering system as the text board /anime/, making the post numbers completely random, having 10x as many mods/janitors, etc. - while retaining the number of posts /a/ has had in total with some sort of counter updated every 10 minutes or so so that people could never tell what number it was on. If you look at other boards, moot also engages in GET faggotry. He even stickied a KoG thread on /b/ at one time. No, moot will do NOTHING to save /a/, and the very few mods and janitors can only do so much thanks to moot's inability to get more mods despite an overwhelming supply of free labor available.

All of this GET faggotry can literally STOP TOMORROW. It doesn't have to last ONE SINGLE DAY LONGER. It can all be fixed overnight, but it won't be. People may call me mad, but they're wrong. I'm beyond mad at this point. I've become so apathetic of GETs that I, too, sometimes participate in them by posting reaction and dubs images. If there's nothing I can do to stop it and moot won't take logical action, why not? Why fight the inevitable?

If whoever made this is reading this thread, the reason KoG isn't gone is because he is affiliated with GETs.

No it doesn't. Those who have actually been here long enough knows that GETs were accepted as funny and Moot liked them as well. Moot still gets excited for the really big /b/ gets even today.

My point is anyone who actually was here around 2004 and is still here now would never use the phrase "GET faggotry", and would be able to understand why everyone gives KoG so much attention--because he gets quite a lot of GETs, and since GETs have and will always be part of this boards culture he will continue to live on.

You could say KoG is ruining GETs since most of his GETs are quite stupid and aren't really funny or original.

The creator of the pasta is either a troll, lying retard, KoG, or a pius servant hyping up KoG.

Wrong. moot is also the cancer killing 4chan. GETs have NEVER been accepted on 4chan. In just about every GET thread you see archived pre-2008, they are all filled with people saging and spamming. NOBODY LIKES GETS. Only the most vile /b/ scum likes that crap. Saying KoG is a part of /a/'s culture is like saying Flanfly at 2 o'clock is a part of ours.

And who do you suppose the majority of 4chan users are?

Where do you think they all go after they realize /b/ is a shithole and a shell of what it once was? Mainly to /a/ and /v/.

It is only natural for faggots on /a/ to eat KoG's shit up on a GETly basis.

Why are you so obsessed with Gaia Online? Did you just come to /jp/ from there, and are now under the impression that we're superior? I won't disagree that /jp/ and 4chan as a whole tends to have a more mature userbase than Gaia Online, but I've heard rumors that Gaia Online's moderators understand its userbase and can be frequently seen there. Don't take my word on it though.

It comes down to who wants to carry the torch in his place. There will always be a KoG, his fanbase is filled with dutiful retards. Fanfly doesn't have this luxury, actually it seems quite the opposite.

The only reason this is the case is because KoG is something associated with GETs which will be eternally part of 4chan's culture.
