I can't hold my tongue about it anymore, so here goes: Can we please do something to keep /soc/ material off of /b/? I'm seeing at least 4 state-specific hookup threads on the front page every evening, as well as the general hookup thread, and some for Canada, not to mention anons using the place as their personal cragslist. ("where can I meet cute traps in the 949?") And if that's not enough, we have the "favorite X" and "tell us about you" template threads (pic related) that are more at home on /soc/ and are magnets for people who mistakenly think that trying to meet up /b/tards in real life is cooler than meeting up /soc/ users and create no content besides 3x3s of their favorite albums. This shit is crowding out the rare good threads.
>/b/ is shit, all the good stuff is gone. gb2 containment
/b/'s the only place here where I can watch a hairy fat guy put sharpies up his butt, see people threaten to kill themselves on cam, and post blatant bait threads without fear of being b&. I can pretend I have expertise in subjects I know nothing about. I can try to roll 69 in the hopes OP will make a top hat for that frog he caught. Can you blame me for my simple pleasures?
>/b/ is random, so anything goes!
Then why did moot create /soc/ in the first place? Oh, right, so the aforementioned internet activities wouldn't be buried under walls of "rate my tits" and "who has ganja in the 285?"
>something about pissing in an ocean of piss
This is about more than just /b/. /soc/ can be slow and it would benefit from people moving their crap there. And this is more like poring water in an ocean of piss. Stop watering down my piss!
>nobody's gonna do anything about this.
If that's true, I'd like to hear it from a mod so I know to move on instead of wasting my time on a lost cause. Thanks.
Simon, Alex and Jon

moot posted this interesting interview through his twitter. It is a nice interview, you should read it.
In it he says this:
>Well, [4chan] never caught fire. If you look at my traffic from February 2003 onwards, in those 5 years there hasn't been any real inflection. It's been more slow and steady wins the race. In the early days I found people like Simon through a different IRC channel. I'm still friends with a number of the people who were the first volunteers and helpers, like Alex, one of the guys who's been helping out for 9 years. Jon, this other guy, is still a good friend - he was actually the first person I met from the internet, at a Barnes and Noble in the city..
Who are Simon, Alex and Jon? They are mods I presume, but which ones?
Janators, get your priorities straight

See these two threads?
Both of them were on /v/
The first one got about 25 posts of humorous puns and other such hilarity. Then it got deleted for no apparent reason.
The second one has over 200 replies, over 100 images, is still going on as we speak, and has pretty much nothing but lewds and occasionally genuine furry porn. Not a single image has been deleted so far as far as I am aware
What the fuck, janators?
