remember when rules 1 and 2 were a thing people told each other so that 4chan doesn't become overflowed with new users? Why didn't /pol/ follow rules 1 and 2? Obviously 4chan would grow and that is unstoppable, but at some level rules 1 and 2 would've kept the site less serious with people taking posts too serious and we could just call each other faggots and end the debate accepting that the debate is silly. The internet become real life and serious business and 4chan was supposed to be that escape.
Okay...NOW /vp/'s images should be restored, an interrupt to the copy left a lot out that should now be there.
