The Feb 28 war.
The initial attack was started on February 28th 2010. Will any more attacks follow in the war between funny junk and 4chan?
Funny Junk is a website that lets users submit funny images and videos. It has been around for along time, although it is not as popular as 4Chan.
4Chan is the largest forum on the internet. It is known for creating 90% of internet memes. From the “I heard you like Mudkips” to “its over 9000″. And don’t forget lolcats and Pedo bears. 4Chan is also known for their war on Scientology and their abusive hacking and DOS attacks.
These sites are both community controlled, so the announcement of the threat of an invasion into Funny Junk by 4Chan began as a warning by a member of 4Chanr. They seem to be worried about the traffic Funny Junk are getting.
The war is built for entertainment, since both sites offer users so much anonymity, its a war that shows the user support of each sites.
On 28th February 2010, 4Chan made their first attack on Funny junk, posting new images and invading Funny junk with 4Chan content.
Funny Junk has fought by defended themselves; saying how much of a failure the attack was, and instead of hurting them, brought them more traffic.
4Chan are persistent, once they set a goal they don’t back down easily, sooner or later, another attack is likely to follow.
