Man, this is a blast from the past. I only recently bothered finding /leftypol/ because I settled for half chan. I remember the days of going to 7chan and 420chan as viable alternatives to 4chan.
Hell, Jewlion from 711chan was in my fucking highschool math class. It was absurd. Dude would be asleep for first period and I'd ask him why, he said he was up all night posting on a chan, pretending to be over 18 the whole time.
It all feels so fresh and underground. An inundated radical alteration and dissemination of information and catharsis. What a beautiful thing. Thank you for reminding me. Looking through some of these I've seen some boards I thought I'd like, but aren't what was expected. It seems like most boards about literature are even slower than regular /lit/ and the law board on 420 chan isn't actually other lawyers, its people just asking for legal advice. Interesting nonetheless and it's given me hope again of chasing down rabbit holes.
Thank you comrades.
