4chan.org (never, ever, ever work-safe) — commonly known as “the primordial soup from which Internet memes emerge,” “that place that all of those Scientology protesters come from,” and “the worst site on the Internet,” has added six new message boards, including ones dedicated to advice, 3D modeling, and…literature?
Moot, creator of 4chan and unwilling Kerensky to the site’s roiling, extremist proletariat, announced the new boards in typically derisive fashion:
“Worksafe?” Oh, Moot — people are going to post furry fan art and weird moe pornography no matter what you tell them!
The literature board — an especially odd addition, since the only books that ever seem to be mentioned on the site seem to be Snow Crash, The Game, and Gödel, Escher, Bach (in that order) — seems to be spawning mostly discussion of Lester Bangs, Bukowski, and Lovecraft. No surprises there.
The advice board, of course, is mostly people complaining about being dumped by their Internet Girlfriend. Sail on, /b/tards!
