majestrate/nntpchan: nntp based decentralized imageboard
NNTPChan (previously known as overchan) is a decentralized imageboard that uses the NNTP protocol (network-news transfer protocol) to synchronize content between many different servers. It utilizes cryptographically signed posts to perform optional/opt-in decentralized moderation.

No, a former Kavanaugh clerk didn’t flash a “white power sign.” Here’s what really happened.
Back in February 2017, Pitcavage writes, a 4chan user proposed an effort called “Operation O-KKK” in which he and allies would, in the anonymous user’s words, “flood Twitter and other social media websites … claiming that the OK hand sign is a symbol of white supremacy.” Here’s the original 4chan post, as shared by KnowYourMeme:

The choice of the okay symbol for the prank, as KnowYourMeme editor-in-chief Brad Kim explains, was not totally arbitrary; “Sometime during the 2016 United States presidential election,” Kim writes, “Pizza Party Ben and Milo Yiannopoulos began making the gesture together at various events supporting the candidacy of Donald Trump.”

Memes do Not Exist: Memetics as Anthropotechnics – Woke Noumenon – Medium
The point here is that they have created a training regime which infects others and subverts them for a positive end of promoting simple fun, kindness, and affirmation. Where /pol/ asks you to pretend to hate minority groups for “fun,” /s4s/ asks you to just “pretend to be fun, nice, and creative.” And like that, it gets you. Even “rude” posts here can’t help but make one smile. Listening to one of the /s4s/ radio broadcasts left me feeling ecstatic for days, from being in such an unconditionally positive environment with boundless methods of expressing that positivity. This is not done through some “return,” but rather a radical uprooting — not of the postmodern ironic kind, but one of free creation. The very thing that makes /s4s/, the leading example of post-ironic humor, so revolutionary and subversive is that it says nothing. It has no rituals of initiation, no formal exercise structure, only a rallying cry around some principles that the user must find for themselves. There is merely exhilarating freedom of making your own sense. This is a zero-entendre game.

How journalists should not cover an online conspiracy theory | Opinion | The Guardian
The primary focus of this work was the symbiotic relationship between participating trolls and the news media: the fact that trolls needed journalists to amplify their attacks (and they found the reporting funny), and some journalists needed trolls to give them sensational things to write about.
The troll space has shifted in profound and striking ways over time (as I and my co-authors have previously argued). Participants on sites such as 4chan and 8chan have too; you can’t draw a perfectly straight line between trolling of the past and far-right extremism of the present.

(10607) Chris Pratt Defends Gunn, KSI Logan Paul Pasts Dug Up, Roy Moore "Detected", & More - YouTube
so, PizzaGate guy unearthed old unsavour tweets from Gunn, right-wing alt-righ far-right neo-nazi sites twitter pushed that, Disney felt they had to react, gave the Gunn the boot. That the right-wing cybernazis are behind that, is well known, Cast of movie franchise feel confident enough to stand up to it. Question is, after the Star Wars Community backlash against the new Star Wars movies and some not being well received critically and $$$ as expected, and the head of the franchise had to go, who will Disney side with - in this situation? ... seems like this was a Faux outrage machine - more like organised cybernazi mob mass emailing against Gunn. Was _NOT_ MSM as debate, Gunn and his Tweets/past, Disney came out of the blue with the boot for Gunn. //&! https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/aug/05/why-are-employers-allowed-police-what-we-say-private-citizens-angela-williamson-cricket-australia - Sacking people for their political opinions expressed online is a worrying trend

Anonymity as Culture: Treatise - Triple Canopy
Historian Robert H. Wiebe writes, in Self-Rule: A Cultural History of American Democracy (1995), of the emergence of a “national class” at the turn of the twentieth century, the group of professional urbanites who held jobs that were more tied to the emerging national, rationalized society than to any local community: engineers, doctors, lawyers, professors, bankers, and the like. What remained was the “local class,” consisting of those members of the middle and upper classes who were more deeply tied by professional bonds to their communities: realtors, retailers, and other service providers who did not come to be a vocal part of the national conversation.

The degree of suspicion varies. Within 4chan, the /b/ board is far more likely to be given over to trolling and fraud than other boards. But since the possibility always exists, there is a persistent need to take nothing at face value.

The anonymity of A-culture has unexpectedly provided the conditions for a reestablishment of what Huizinga thought had disappeared by the nineteenth century, with its increasingly bourgeois, professionalized, and industrialized cultures. With those elements of individual identity that might be divisive and might reference the positions and responsibilities of “real” life obscured, freedom is reestablished. What looks like anarchy from the outside is rarely actually anarchic; it is play, carefully regimented and circumscribed
