Hall Of Famer
|Anyone watching "Q: Into the Storm" on HBO. It's a 6-part piece and I'm 3 parts in. The documentary is mostly interesting because it has almost nothing to do with Trump and is just about the inner workings of 4Chan, 8Chan, and similar sites. It's fascinating to see the people who run these places, which is comprised almost exactly of the most exaggerated insults you could ever hurl at someone behind a keyboard. Literally a dwarf incel in a wheelchair, a porn-obsessed dude who makes the documentarian take him to "Soapland" in Japan (Google it), and that dude's father who made his money by buying a Pokemon sound-alike website in the '90s and filling it with gay porn so that Nintendo would buy it off of him to make it stop. Too many other characters to even get into, some barely resembling humans. And then you have the true Trump believers who just kind of float in and float out of the series, oblivious to how they're being trolled by porn-obsessed incels but beyond bizarre in their own way. The whole thing is fascinating if you just want to take a peak at the world of high-end message boards and the people who run them. No one seems to be making any money though, and the facial ticks, autism, physical disabilities, mental disabilities, lack of social skills, and lack of personalities would be considered over-the-top in a dramatized movie if these people weren't real.
However, the one thing related to Q that is made obvious, is that by early 2018, if Q was ever real before, he no longer was anymore. Q has been taken over by the message board geeks and it seems like a work now, orchestrated to keep the hits coming to 8Chan, which went from having 3 people on it to being a top 1,000 website worldwide solely because of Q posts.
This thread was great before AA ruined it.
