My early internet free speech almost bit me in the ass. Google bought Altavista’s Usenet archives and exposed shit I said freely in 1990,91,92,93,94,95,96,97… all from a common easy to use box that everybody had access too. Man, I went on a deleting spree. Anonymous forums always existed, although the crop of chans grew kind of toxic and stayed that way. I think their format is fine – I ran two anon image boards about 10 yrs ago that used similar software as them. In the end though it’s all about the community.
