And 9gag still isn't a sfw 4chan clone.

This part was funny.

Internet troll scholar (yes, they exist) Whitney Phillips has written a blog post with more background on the 9gag connection. She explains that the prank was probably launched by 4chan users, who have a long-running operation to "frame 9gag for everything terrible on the internet."

Ebaums users must be depressed because they aren't even significant enough to be blamed anymore.

I commented "9gag is still cancer" to a guy saying he's from 9gag. I used the username Reddituser.

Gawker are a bunch of liberal ******** that like to think their tabloid journalism is srs business. Leave it to them to try to play detective and write an exposé on what is clearly a troll to anyone with 46 chromosomes and a keyboard.

It you need a good lol/facepalm check out the featured comments by these vegan butthurts, you'll find such gems as "ugh, men" and "hurrdurr ppl died this is srs".
#70 to #64 - pineapplepeople (08/05/2012) [-]
If you want to blame us liberals, fine. But I swear to the holy God of bacon if you call us vegans one more time...
#77 to #64 - thepenname (08/05/2012) [-]
If you read the article, you'd know the author pointedly describes the accusation as a hoax.
User avatar #87 to #77 - I Am Monkey (08/05/2012) [-]
I know, the point is that they need to do an in-depth investigation because they heard there are rumors on the internets proves that they take themselves way too seriously. They need to pull the OP's records, cite a "trolling scholar" and correspond with the site to conclude what the rest of us all knew at first glance; that "it was probably 4chan"

>implying liberals are a problem when they stopped ACTA
#101 to #83 - anon (08/05/2012) [-]
WHAT HAW BUH WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT

Liberals were the main supporters of ACTA, moron.
User avatar #91 to #83 - I Am Monkey (08/05/2012) [-]
The Internet stopped ACTA.
Obama signed it.
RIP your argument.
