More tags 4chan users are spamming
PLEASE DON’T GO INTO THESE TAGS!
I went in to see how bad it was, and it’s terrifying! So please, don’t go in there. Stay out of them and be safe!
if my understanding is correct, folx from 4chan are spamming these tags with irl gore images and other extremely triggering content, so be aware and avoid them as needed friends.
Okay, gang, here’s my understanding of the situation—
Some 4chan users have decided to load up various popular tumblr tags with gorey, gruesome, triggering, and all around terrible imagery and things. This is apparently to get back at some tumblr users who attempted to “invade” 4chan. Here’s another post with more info and other tags to avoid.
So, basically, keep out of the popular tags for awhile, folks. And maybe just avoid searching through the tags, in general.
Spread the word. Even if you don’t have triggers (or don’t think you do) I suggest avoiding the searches and also alerting your followers and friends for their benefit as well.
Eugh, usually I don’t weigh in on bullshit like this, but I’m going to because I feel it’s important.
While I was scrolling these tags out of pure interest and mindless boredom, I noticed people trying to get rid of 4chan’s posts by posting pictures of themselves. Or posting in general.
I know that the internet can seem really harmless. And a lot of people are like ohahah what can internets people do to me? But if 4chan is anything like I remember it being, than you really don’t want these people having photos of you. You really don’t want them going on your blog. You really dont want them checking your IP. You really dont want them getting ahold of you address and possibly your phone number. Back when I used 4chan, I watched people get their home addresses leaked, phone numbers, facebooks, to the point where people could track them as far as to their workplaces. And there are sick fucking people on the internet, sicker than just posting gorey photos on a dumb website. There are people that will maliciously take your #selfies and photoshop them onto hardcore scat porn and then make that image go viral. There are people that will relentlessly call your work place asking for you.
I’ve seen that happen. I’ve literally seen hackers (and look I don’t mean teheh hackers, I mean people that spend all day everyday on the internet legitimately doing dangerous things with their spare time) fuck people up over this. 4chan’s basically their playground.
So, while your intentions to fill those tags with something nice are really awesome? Don’t do it. They’ll get bored and leave eventually. You don’t want to be scrolling the internet and find a picture of yourself photoshopped into porn involving animals. So leave it alone.
