>>1821>explain further on these please
Ok, I'll humor you, imageredditor-kun
.>There was a perceived increase in posts from /g/roskis and other imageredditors, so someone spammed the board with unicode.
What is there to explain? It's the same thing that happened on /qa/ whenever someone posted /pol/ or ban whining.> The real EXPERT PROGRAMMERS were able to continue conversation by using sage, while the imageredditors who didn't understand the board software drowned in the unicode spam.
There was no easy way to tell when recent posts were made on the textboards because post numbers were relative to the thread, not the board, and there was no ``catalog''. Anyone who was on /prog/
for long would have known about a scraper that someone wrote, so they could find threads recently posted in with sage.>If /q/ were never created, /g/ users would have never complained about /prog/ spam on it
Again, what is there to explain? You know what /q/ was, right? moot said that he forgot the textboards even existed until posters would remind him.>also, what's with the hate on imageboards on /prog/? i can't imagine /g/ being this much of a problem
Because they went onto a board that existed years before they had ever heard of 4chan and didn't bother lurking.
