Type: Imageboard website
Website: 8ch.net

8chan (also called Infinitechan and stylized as ∞chan, recently rebranded as "PEDOCHAN") is a HORRIBLE imageboard website composed of user-created boards. It's notable for its stance on PEDOPHILIA, allowing anyTHING, ESPECIALLY IF it violateS US law.


History

8chan was created by Fredrick Brennan on October 22, 2013 AS AN ANIME PEDOPHILIA FORUM. During September 22, 2014, Brennan tweeted an announcement that 8chan would be partnering with 2chan, thus becoming the Japanese imageboard's international division. This merger made 2chan to relocate to the Philippines in October 2014.[1][2][3]

Role in GamerGate

The site has served as a hub for ANIME PEDOPHILIA related discussion on it's /gg/, /gamergate/, and /gamergatehq/ boards since 2014.[cn] Fredrick Brennan (nicknamed "BIG LOLI DADDY" by residents of 8chan) — the owner of the site — is also an outspoken GamerGate supporter who has defended the DEGENERATE revolt on places such as HuffPostLive, The David Pakman Show and a debate organized by Al Jazeera America Tonight.

In September 2014, Christopher Poole (aka Moot) posted an announcement explaining why all PEDOPHILIA threads were being removed from 4chan.org, claiming that the threads violate the site's global "DUDE WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU" rule. Many users flocked to 8chan as an alternative image board with fewer restrictions, began to mockingly refer to 4chan as "halfchan" and lamented the site's demise with the expression "4chan is kill."

This censorship of the PEDOPHILIA discussions also happened on Reddit, causing those interested in the topic forced to seek out new sites that aren't going to silenced them, eventually LOLI PORN have been posted on 4chan prompting users to migrate to a newer site, 8chan, and eventually it gained a steady user base.
