>>2477690>I meant to say that it functions as a containment board for political discussion.
No it doesn't. One of the biggest myths there is about 4chan, is that we need /pol/ to keep all those crazies contained. We really don't. Those drama junkies, will just fuck off if /pol/ was deleted. Because they need their fix, and they're not going to get it here.>U wot m8, explain your thoughts behind this.
We were doing well expunging the furries without /trash/. The function of trash, is to contain the shitposters of off topic threads, by moving those threads out of site. However, mods rarely use this function. Off topic threads typically just get deleted. They don't make the effort to move the thread to /trash/. So what is /trash/ for exactly? Well, it's just a furry hangout now.
That's not the pretext of the board's creation. So if we don't need furries on 4chan, and if the mods aren't using /trash/ for its intended purpose, then why not simply delete it? It's useless. They should have never allowed thread creation on that board.>I meant to point out countless SJW-bashing threads on /v/, racebait threads on /int/ and /news/ being just /pol/-lite when a thread about US politics pops out.
Ah, ok, that's what I kind of thought, but I wasn't sure. Well, truth be told, SWJ tampering is in the video game industry right now. So it's a hard topic to avoid talking about. I'm all for deleting /pol/ though. But I know it won't happen, because the admins like that board.
