Web War 3: Tumblr takes on 4Chan in a Battle to the Death


As Gawker, (our own rivals if you must know...) and others, have already noted, /b/ realizes, all too well, its own futility:

said one /b/tard, whose word can be called representative of the feelings of the hive-mind as a whole: Holy shit i can’t believe the amount of fail


Yet they’re going at it anyways. And we get the sense that despite all the fun they’re having, 4chan is only leading itself to slaughter.  After this all we’ll have left is the mule, the unpaid, but sterile, stupid workhouse of the internet: the microblogger.


Now go Tweet about it, you’ll only be adding to the problem.

What’s wrong with media today?




  1. The spend your time and effort and make fear, but to constantly make pretty material for a organization. Tumblr, it could be said, is /b/ corporatized and sanitized, /b/ without the paintballs.

  2. /b/ is the place that everything that is not sterile and corporately acceptable on the net goes. We are the shit that collects the shit that corporations pray will someday go away. BUT so long as the world keeps turning and the people who seek a place to say whatever whenever they so choose and not find it later on a corporate image /b/ will survive.

    Perhaps /b/ will never arise to it’s former glory of hellish intensity and insensitive purgatory that I recall from my teens but it will continue to live. Tumblr can hold the attention for all i care.

    I hate tumblr for it’s corporate whoring ways. I’ll keep using /b/ for as long as it remains. Tumblr will be the new safe place for those who have been burned on /b/ for whatever reason. It will be sensitive and soft handed. /b/ will be the insensitive mind rottingly sick being it has been since it’s birth.

  3. “moot”, actually if you keep your eyes open, you’ll see that the two opposing sides are very quickly turning into friends. Somehow, people ended up considering /b/’s and Tumblr’s relation a love/hate one, and thus, the concept of Tum/b/lr was born.

  4. This whole thing was stupid. Now everyone only sees the newfags of 4chan, and I’m sure smart Tumblr users aren’t too happy that the hipsters are enraging the most powerful site on the internet. This is just going to get worse.

  5. As of this moment, the 4chan frontpage is down but /b/ is up and under attack
    Tumblr is down.

    One is crippled the other is dead.

  6. >hahaha tumblr is making /b/ pay for all their bullshit talk.
    >tumblr is making /b/ pay for all their bullshit.
