The otherwise prestigious Wall Street Journal, 9 July 2008, reports about 4chan.org in an interview with its owner Christopher Poole:

“Over the last few years, 4chan.org has become one of the most talked-about sites when it comes to launching new memes. …

“Mr. Poole says that anonymity encourages unfettered creativity. But it also removes individual accountability as some posts can veer into hurtful or profane territories. “Shock posts,” or graphic images of violence or sex, occasionally mar the largest general interest board known as ” /b/ .” …

Not noted in the article is that 4chan.org has been a steppingstone for many internet hoaxes and fake terrorist threats in the past 12 months.
