    Some of you may be confused. Especially some of the high-quantity low-content posters that get the odd ban vote. [​IMG]

    I've created a Venn diagram to clear up any confusion.

    As you can see, GBAtemp is not actually 4chan, nor any chan for that matter. 4chan dialect is looked down upon by the much of the internet, due to sounding retarded. Image macros in moderation are to be expected of a message board, but goddamn lolcats are stupid.


    "But Heran Bago!" I hear you say.
    "It is my duty as anonymous to be a retard, as to spread the anon ideology."


    WRONG. By using anonymous' slang elsewhere on the internet, you are doing what's called breaking anonymity. Not that I give a shit, but anons generally look down on this.


    Long story short, you are not funny. Since it is inevitable I concede this thread over to rampant 4chan speak and rickrolls. It's kinda the sign of a site's decline, but I guess GBAtemp isn't as geared toward tech savy users any more.
    .. I kinda like rickrolls though.

    Well, this was needed long ago so it's good someone noticed it. All that l331 speak makes you crazy.

    I see "ART ATTACK" is directly comparable with a 4chan thread.

    True, good thing no one brought in "Scientology".

    Ah, a good point, but I would like to break one of your points:
    Just because I use anon's slang elsewhere, doesn't nessicarily mean that I am anon; I've only seen anon's work. So I may be looked down upon by anon, but I don't care for anon. Anon is anon. Not me. Thus, I am not breaking anon, unless I try to be anon.

    Bravo, bravo!! *stands for ovation; ie, clap clap clappity clap* [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    As an occassional lover (and sometimes S&M violator) of the English language I wholeheartedly agree that the internet is full of retards and many said interetards should be culled from these boards.

    As a postgrad student familiar with various forms of representation, including the infamous Venn diagram, I find your post hilarious. I think even the simplicity of a VENN diagram may be too much for some of the retards that have sneakily crept in to GBATemp and formed a small nest under the floorboards.

    And no, I am not being un-PC, these people suffer literal linguistic retardation, like, well... retards!

    Edit: ridiculous plularisation depluralised...

    Anon is working vicariously through you; you become a vessel of anon. Those who adopt anon's tendencies are no different, maybe even worse. Take "o rly" for example. Modern livejournal and ytmnd users (see age verification page) may use "o rly" to this day, even though that has been run into the ground by anon. That may be even more annoying.

    Eh, lighten up Heran Bago - it's the Testing Area. You can post whatever random shit you'd like...

    GBAtemp isn't going to crumble because of the Testing Area and what goes on inside it.

    O RLY?

    Iunno. Some of the memes can stand the test of time, like lolcats. mudkips and slowpoke will live as long as pokemon does, and anything even remotely close to a pun will always have someone laughing.

    I consider complaints about 4chan speak whatever random shit I'd like. [​IMG]
    Don't deny that it ain't leaking onto the rest o' the board. But no rules are being broken so I don't have any logical complaints.


    Really this thread was a clever excuse to MSpaint a venn diagram.

    I actually discussed this with a friend of mine in school today, about how chan culture is spreading everywhere...
