@Atko Please consider doing the AMA at /v/ama. We've had a request for the two of you to come join us and take questions. It would bring much due respect to our growing humble subverse. If you'd like to schedule something soon, please PM me. Otherwise, I'm looking forward to participating at whichever AMA verse you choose.

Curious as to why it is not viable. (Honest question not sniping)

Do Coinbase or Circle not work in your country? Nothing listed on localbitcoins.com?

As a growing global currency I am honestly curious as to issues in different places.

[–] abelianaire 13 points 10 points (+23|-13) ago  (edited ago)

I can't recommend 8ch with a clear conscience though. Lots of really creepy shit gets posted there.

EDIT: I think I'm going to have to clarify as this has generated some discussion. 8ch has at least one board where pictures of clearly underage women are shared, on the rationale that said women are "non-nude". I'm not talking about creepshots or stolen pics off Facebook either - I'm talking about professionally-shot photosets of 12, 13 year old girls modelling in skimpy outfits and very questionable poses. Again, not as an occasional /b/ thread - there are boards like /hebe/ and /nnmodels/ for this very purpose.

Yes, as it stands now it is not illegal according to US Law (or it would have otherwise been taken down) but I cannot browse that site without feeling complicit in an industry that obviously exploits and sexualizes underage girls for profit.

The fact that there is an industry revolving around producing such photographs is a different story, but the fact that 8ch hosts a hub for people sharing these pictures and even tolerates them makes me question the morality of the site as a whole. I understand that others have had a good experience with 8ch in the past without participating in CP, and can continue to do so. Just understand what you are implicitly supporting!

TL;DR If you are thinking about being a regular on 8chan, you should know that they have no problem hosting /hebe/ and /nnmodels/ on their website - which, from one minute of browsing will tell you, are very morally questionable communities that would not be approved of on Reddit, 4chan, or Voat. Hey, maybe I ended up getting 8chan more new users instead. Who knows!

I haven't seen Voat sucks, just jokes about it getting overwhelmed too often. I wouldn't be surprised if they hated that they can't be an instant down vote machine though.

And then 4chan went full retard and lost the interesting part of its user base. It was the test for the Reddit Revolt.

The lesson here is that when you rely on Internet Randoms for your brand identity, those randoms can go somewhere else.

That's an incredible jump. It really puts into context the frequent server issues, nobody could have anticipated that Voat would grow so large so quickly.

Eh, a big part of voat is its non-commercial nature. They're funding it with bitcoin donations right now, ffs. The only way I can see investors latching on is to commercialize it, and doing that requires sanitizing it so McSubKing Bell and Cokesi Pepper don't have to admit they're associating with and supporting (via ad revenue) a site that shelters open hate of fat people and minorities. In short, investors = Pao.
