The strange virtual world of 4chan

By Jon Kelly and Jude Sheerin BBC News


Coventry cat tormentor Mary Bale has become the latest victim of 4chan -
a website credited with creating some of the web's biggest phenomena,
whose users wreak havoc across cyberspace. Just what is it all about?

When CCTV footage emerged of a middle-aged lady stroking a cat before
dumping it in a wheelie bin, millions were outraged.

But in one murky corner of the internet, the scent of blood was detected.

En masse, an army of cyber-pranksters swung into action and culprit Mary
Bale was initially outed not by the forces of Fleet Street but by users
of an online community.

According to reports, they quickly established her identity, her
workplace and her employer's phone number. Death threats and prank calls
quickly followed.

It was the latest headline-grabbing prank from 4chan, an iconoclastic US
site that has given the world such web staples as lolcats and
Rickrolling. It claims 22 million page impressions every day and 9.5
million unique users every month.

Other sites, such as eBaum and Something Awful, may thrive on similar
viral material or "memes", but none have become as notorious as 4chan.

The anarchic messageboard, which was originally set up to discuss
Japanese anime and manga, has also become distinguished by its
lawlessness, obscene content and vindictive campaigns - and is
definitely not safe for reading at work.

Less savoury campaigns staged by users have included flooding YouTube
with pornography under the guise of teen-pop videos, googling Canadian
pop star Justin Bieber's name en masse alongside the word "syphilis" to
push the combination up the search engine's rankings, and inserting a
virtual giant swastika constructed from avatars into a children's online
computer game.

Rob Manuel of, a British website founded on similar, albeit
more whimsical lines, says 4chan's success has been founded on turning
"trolling" - essentially, annoying other internet users - into an art form.

"It's the equivalent of all the kids at the back of the classroom
passing each other notes and being sarcastic," he adds.

"Essentially, it's about taking trolling to the nth degree and saying:
'Let's put all the trolls in one place and see what happens.'"

Browsers who are easily offended are best advised to steer clear of the
site, which has virtually no rules other than a ban on images of child
abuse. Racist, homophobic and pornographic content are all regular
themes on its "random" or "/b/" messageboard.

Anonymous anti-Scientology protester Anti-Scientology protesters have
adopted the Anonymous guise

Users can post without having to register or provide a name, and the
"Anonymous" tag has become a blanket term for online users acting
collectively. The tag has also become synonymous with online mischief
makers engaging in stunts like targeting other websites by flooding
their bandwidth.

Nonetheless, 4chan's most popular behests to the broader online
community have been relatively innocent.

Lolcats - images of anthropomorphic felines captioned with mis-spelt
web-speak ("im in ur bed zleepin" and so on) - made their first
appearance on the site, during its regular "Caturday" slot, but went on
to dominate blogs and sites the length and breadth of the internet.

And Rickrolling - tricking other web users into following a link, which
turns out to be the video to Rick Astley's 1987 hit Never Gonna Give You
Up - became a massively popular prank, with the song's YouTube video
having generated more than 36 million views.

But not all stunts originating from the site's users have been so
harmless. In 2009 YouTube was forced to remove hundreds of pornographic
videos apparently uploaded by 4chan users. The footage was uploaded
under the names of teenage pop favourites such as Hannah Montana and
Jonas Brothers, and clips typically began with footage of their videos
before groups of adults performing graphic sex acts filled the screen.

Another 4chan favourite is Pedobear, a harmless-looking ursoid cartoon
character who, despite his loveable appearance... you get the idea.

Other 4chan stunts have been loosely political in character, including
Project Chanology, a movement that protests against the practices of the
Church of Scientology.

Using the "Anonymous" persona, its tactics have included urging users to
google the phrase "Scientology is a cult", pushing it to the top of
Google Hot Trends, as well as staging real-world protests.

In response, the Church of Scientology has labelled them "terrorists"
guilty of "hate crimes".

Despite its anarchic, Wild West nature, 4chan does have a leader, of
sorts - a poster called moot. He is New Yorker Christopher Poole, who
set up the site while a 15-year-old living at home with his mum.

Start Quote
"Newspapers and the BBC are fair game. But re-routing Justin Bieber fans to porn just isn't acceptable”
End Quote Jack Schofield Computer journalist

At first, he says, he was simply offering fans of anime and manga
somewhere to post pictures, but the anonymity, the lack of an archive
and the very basic board design created a "breeding pit" for memes and
edgy humour.

Wisely, Poole does not defend every excess perpetuated by members of the
community, and admits that his 55-year-old mother "wouldn't necessarily
understand" something like Pedobear.

He says the trolls have been called "an internet hate machine", but
insists that "for the most part it's a lot more bark than bite".

Poole adds: "They like to get a reaction but they like to do it from the
comfort of their chair at home in the basement. For the most part
4channers are more or less decent people, they're not going to go too

"The conversation that takes place on the site is raw and unfiltered,
when people contribute anonymously you get their innermost self they
express things they would otherwise be shy to do in a forum where they
could be identified, I'm a fan of the conversation that results, for
better for worse."

Of course, not everyone believes the worst of 4chan is excused by its best.

Technology journalist Jack Schofield says the community can fulfil a
useful function, outwitting the mainstream media when it fails to
understand technology - but the anonymity and lack of restraint means
members frequently cross the line.

"I regard it as something of a court jester, able to get away with
things that normally people can't get away with," he says.

"The problem with it is that it can easily go too far. But re-routing
Justin Bieber fans to porn just isn't acceptable."

What seems certain is that 4chan will continue to shape digital culture
for some time yet.

But if you are tempted to visit the site, don't say you haven't been

also to know from US Government official the link ... _1749.html
which when to copy-pasta would tell:
Department of State Warns of Impostor or Fraudulent Websites, Emails or Print Advertisements

How Do I Know If the U.S. Visa Information is Official and Correct?
Immigration Related Websites
Impostor or Fraudulent Websites and Email
Diversity Visa(DV) Lottery Programs and Scams
International Scams
How Do I Report Internet Fraud or Unsolicited Email?

How Do I Know If U.S. Visa Information Is Official and Correct? The Department of State, Visa Services advises the public that only internet sites including the ".gov" indicator are official government websites, for our agency offices located in the United States. We are proud to have more than 200 U.S. Embassies and Consulates worldwide. While many of these Embassy websites have the ".gov" indicator in their internet address, a number do not. The Department of State websites and link directly to all U.S. Embassy websites abroad at U.S. Embassies and Consulates. You'll find this link of both Department of State websites listed above. This is a useful way for the public to access Consular Section websites. Visa applicants are advised to be cautious in all dealings with companies that claim to offer any assistance in obtaining U.S. visas. Please note the following:

Immigration Related Websites. Many other non-governmental websites (e.g., using the suffixes ".com," ".org" or ".net") provide legitimate and useful immigration and visa related information and services. If payment is requested for information from a non-governmental source, this payment is not received by the U.S. Government and does not apply towards a visa fee. Regardless of the content of other websites, the Department of State does not endorse, recommend or sponsor any information or material shown at these other websites. The information provided may not be correct or up-to-date so should always be verified independently.

Impostor or Fraudulent Websites and Email. A few other websites may try to mislead customers and members of the public into thinking they are official websites. These websites may have a U.S. flag or picture of an official U.S. Government building or famous U.S. person to mislead you into believing that the website is sponsored by the U.S. Government, when they are not. These websites may attempt to require you to pay for services such as forms and information about immigration procedures, which are otherwise free on the Department of State and websites, or overseas through the Embassy websites. Also, on the Department of Homeland Security websites:, and, forms and information are available free of charge. Additionally, these other websites may require you to pay for services you will not receive. These web sites may contact you by email to lure you to take advantage of their false offer to get a U.S. Visa. Additionally, be wary of sending any personal information, since these sites may even be used to gather personal information that could result in identity fraud or theft.

Diversity Visa(DV) Lottery Programs and Scams. There have been instances of fraudulent websites posing as official U.S. Government sites. Some companies posing as the U.S. Government have sought money in order to "complete" lottery entry forms. To learn more, please see the Federal Trade Commission Warning. The only official way to apply for the DV lottery is directly through the official U.S. Department of State Website during the specified and limited-time registration period. Applicants selected in the Diversity Visa random drawing are notified by the Department of State, Kentucky Consular Center by letter, NOT email and are provided instructions on how to proceed to the next step in the process. No other organization or private company is authorized by the Department of State to notify Diversity Visa lottery applicants of their winning entry, or the next steps in the processing of applying for their visa..

International Scams - For more information about international scams involving internet dating, inheritance, work permits, overpayment, and money-laundering please visit our International Financial Scams page.

How Do I Report Internet Fraud or Unsolicited Email? If you wish to file a complaint about Internet fraud, please see the website, hosted by the Federal Trade Commission, which is a joint effort of consumer protection agencies from 17 nations at or go to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3). To file a complaint about unsolicited email, contact Department of Justice contact us page.

so to be on look-see, Good Comrades, for despicable Capitalist running dogs in their vain attempt with
defrauding poor ignorant Soviet people; I assuredly that Protectors of Holy Motherland stand watch and
guard and give heartfelt thanks. Please to advise correct site for payment making and please do not
kill other dog - he is good dog.

and too apologies for statement of "Soviet people"; meant of course "Federational Russia Free Citizens".
Please do not kill other dog.

Long life to Comrade Putin!
May his chest swell and be bare !
