    I stopped at a certain point after scrolling down a bit so I did not scan through the whole post but... might this deserve a NSFW tag (potentially)?

    Of course, you are right. I added something to that effect in the OP, but if a mod wants to edit the title, that would be helpful as well.

    the archive is usually entertaining enough, you make it sound like something has happened to 4chan

    Somehow reminded me of a BBC show were these chimps suddenly start hollering, hitting things, and jumping around, making a huge noise, for no other reason than establishing their tree branch.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    I don't have the privacy to go to the site anymore. I look at memegenerator.net sometimes for a good chuckle though.

    There have been plenty of comparable antics on this forum. Just look at your every day "Please write this code for me" post in the programing forums.

    Nice link... definitely a good example of what people expect out of their internet.

    Nice

    I agree, he was asking for it.

    4chan is still around, just not as good as it used to be. Its slowly turning into facebook.
