HILL: Opinions originating and/or popularized on 4chan, other chans or are common meme-based opinions are automatically invalid or at least highly suspect and should be treated like removing a slug attached to a tomato.

there’s deeper but 4chan is so commonplace, especially among middle school aged boys (and those who never outgrew), that it deserves its reputation.

Typical /pol/ amounts to:
Liberals: All their ideas are bad.
Liberals: Not even once.
Liberals: Everybody I don’t agree with is a Liberal.

You’re talking about a “true troll”. They’re too rare.

It’s not a point that has to be proven. You won’t find 100% “uncorrupt” opinion. That’s just how it is.

A rotten egg may still hold nutritional value and a fresh egg may be a little rotten but it’s a fool who says they’re equivalent.

Long before 4chan existed – and Twitter, Reddit, Facebook too, I was here.

There’s nothing much new or unique about 4chan except it’s popularity and a cult-like adoration. Like Facebook, it’s full of itself, ascribing far more power and control over people than it has.
