- Inferior, although old imageboard.
- Home of racists, pedophiles and trolls.
4chan is an imageboard based on 2chan. 4chan is owned and operated by Moot (or Christopher Poole as his mother knows him). It also happens to be the oldest and most popular of the non-Japanese *chan imageboards.
At one point 4chan could have been considered a nice place to visit every now and again, however it has now since filled with gaiafags, furrys, newfags and more trolls than a kewpie doll factory 4chan always sucked. Needless to say, all hope was lost a very long time ago.
 History of Note
Like every website, 4chan goes down every once in a while and the denziens all flock to the 'lesser' imageboards such as us and 7chan. To keep the the nafarious interlopers at bay, we enter a rave mode of sorts and the mods and admins swing thier mighty "banhammers" upon them.
 77777777 Get
In (not so) recent news (seriously, this was fucking years ago), 420chan was the subject of the highly contested 77777777 get on 4chan's /b/. In at the last moment, like a true fucking champion, a 420channer swooped in triumphantly stealing the coveted get. This was simply too much for the noble yet less-than-intelligent (read: less elitist) /b/tards. With the fury of a thousands flies on fly paper, they descended into the depths of 420chan's /b/ in an attempt to steal back the 420chan 333333 and thus, in some existential sense, their honor. Laaaaawd, did they "4ail". Mods skipped the number and thus the /b/tards went stomping off to demand mom pour them another glass of live wire. Much rejoying and merryment was had.... We smoked ourselves retarded just like any other night of the week.
