This kid, sorry I don't know much about him, had declared war on internet side 4chan. A website that is full of hackers, porn, and just over all, all kinds of odd things. They have been known to harass members on the board, not just on the board but also by hacking their computers, publishing private information like phone numbers and address.

I don't mind that he is doing it. I don't mind that he claiming that God is on his side and will help him take down the site. What I mind is if you watch his other videos, he goes on to talk about the big bang theory and evolution and calls the people who came up with these theories crackpots. This is just not something I feel are his words, but are words that are being given to him through the influence of his parents. I have no problem with people having different opinion on on things like evolution and religion, what I have a problem with is when the name calling starts. When the forcing of it down someones throats, and like this, when you send your child to do the work.

He also has declared war on Anonymous, the group that has declared war on Scientology. This kid has high goals.

@Seed,
The kid, no matter if his intent is noble or not, is spitting into the wind. What resources (legal and financial) does he have to take down such a well known, well entrenched international site as 4Chan?

He's his generation Don Quixote and 4Chan is his windmills!

@Robert Gentel,
He should be wearing a sign around his neck that says "Home Schooled"

4chan is legion. The kid stands no chance.

What can even be considered victory against 4chan? Against Anon? It's a group which cannot be moved by slander nor cares to defend its reputation.

@chai2,
An on-line community of young hackers and troublemakers.

@Green Witch,
I don't know about a2k's hacker population but at least I know we have a lot of troublemakers. I wonder if the kid will declare war on our site next? We can be his Iraqi War, while his war on 4Chan is his war in Afghanistan, non?

He can accuse us of having hackers (AKA questionable weapons of mass destruction). a2k may or may not have ever had a hacker in its midst. The question is whether we'll sell that hacker's services to do evil upon the free world!

If it's such a "well-known" international site, how come this is the first time I've ever heard of it?

@Merry Andrew,
It's more of an underground/counterculture international site that wouldn't attract the attention of the national or international media.

4chan is a imageboard website modeled off the popular Japanese image boards yotsuba and 2chan. Posters are not required to create an account to post and so there is rarely any distinction between posters. Instead, the name "anonymous" appears. There is no way to know a poster's age or gender. Posters en masse are referred to collectively as "anon." There are several topically related boards on the site, but the "/b" board or "random" is most popular and it's frequent posters commonly refer to themselves as "/b tards."

Offensive and politically incorrect language (by almost any standard of sensibility) is commonplace on the boards. The over saturation of profane language however almost seems to non-dimensionalize terms. For instance, the word "fag" is used almost as every other word, but perhaps most often as a suffix. A old poster on the board refers to himself as an "oldfag," and new poster is referred to as a "newfag." This seemingly would label the site as being very hostile to the LGBT community, but ironically homosexuals are no less accepted and even refer to themselves as fagfags.

It's popularity mostly comes from the fact that it is the origin of almost all known web memes and is the origin of much of the web language that is used in pop culture.

As the user created media platform continues to grow and becomes more and more competitive with commercial media, things like 4chan will only grow in popularity. The site is not all hackers and trouble makers. Also, while I do believe that the site is mostly younger posters, the site is more mature in it's content (interpret as you will...).

If you go wandering into the site, don't say I didn't warn you though. There are things you cannot unsee. I go there, and yes, it is amusing. The really obscene stuff is pretty easy to find because people know where to look for it, so it's also pretty easy to avoid.

@Diest TKO,
Sounds like a site worth giving a miss, Diest.
Life is too short & all that ....
