The internet has gotten pretty boring and gay. I actually spend most of my time offline today. When I do go online all there is to do is read the latest news, most of which is depressing as hell. Image boards are pretty much dead today, except when it comes to the perv porn and anime boards. The only thing good going for the internet, as I see it, is p2p file sharing networks and bit torrent. Only reason I really bother leaving my computer online sometimes lol. Is it really over?

It's been over since 2012 or so, when the guy who drew Dilbert died in a plane crash.

When I first found the image board world it was back in 2013, I had no clue these sites even existed, found them by complete accident. There were tons of users and plenty of boards filled with "shit posters". It seemed to me ever since 8chan was taken down everything evaporated. Even the most basic news/political boards as well as /k/ and /tech/ boards became nearly extinct. It's as if all previous users decided to abandon image boards all at once after 8chan died. There is 8kun now but it sucks ass, it's locked down half the time and ridden by spam bots when not locked down, and worse, 99% of those boards are completely dead. Which is why I came here as a refuge.

So my question is, what the hell exactly happened? Why did so many anons all bail at once? Where did they end up going? Did they completely give up on the internet, or did they all join mainstream big tech platforms? I must admit I am a bit out-of-touch with the modern internet age of smartphones and other online gadgets so I am no normie. Maybe that's the problem? Maybe the sharp rise in smartphone use changed the internet landscape to the point it is unrecognizable today?
