Everyone on 4chan and here etc seem to think everyone is one person.

It’s on par with people being afraid of “gang-stalking”. It’s absurd to think that 70% of threads on all boards on all image boards are one person.

speaking from experience?

Nta but lolcow lol. I remember last time I went I got harassed by a psycho anon who swore she seen other posts of mine and that she knows my typing style… It was the first post I made there in years. I wasn't infighting or starting anything either. I also feel like this mentality could be why so many people deny issues and claim everything is niche.

Most people dont think that, take your meds lol

I have never had that happen on lc or here and I've been crossposting a lot kek

nta but that definitely happens a lot on lolcow and they're ruthless. they literally will go thread to thread and keep up the accusations for days. sometimes they're right, sometimes not, but they definitely get a bug up their butt about it and think a lot of ppl are the same which is more strange than it is here because their userbase is so much bigger. can't comment on 4chan as i've not been there in like a decade but people must be straight retarded on there to make such accusations when their userbase is enormous

The more you protest you're not the person they think you are, the more sure they become. Then they add it to their extensive experience of being right

I quit 4chan and other boards because I am o sure the mods or someone is stalking me in threads. I can post any thread and all of a sudden someone says oddly specific things that apply to me or threaten me.

I think ganstalking is obviously silly but I know people are stalking me on the internet.

Anonymous 3816

that's because they are
the only way to stand out is post the same shit everyday

Anonymous 3818

can you elaborate on your experiences with that, anon?

honestly these communities are not as big as they seem so it really is possible to identify posters sometimes. but there are also many schizos out there.

Anonymous 3832

you're either a schizo or you make highly recognisable posts and regular users can tell it's you so they (likely light-heartedly) reference things that have happened previously.

It is an interesting evolution of internet era tribalism. On other internet communities like reddit and twitter, when two people disagree on one subject they color in their mental image of each other with more disagreements, to presume they would disagree on everything. This way they can make the other person the "enemy."
On an anonymous message board no one has a recognizable identity. They try to color in pictures that don't exist and the colors go everywhere. So it fosters the paranoia that anyone could be an enemy and that they're surrounded by enemies.

There could be several explanations for this. I lurk out on /r9k/ on and off and I can definitely recognize a dozen posters just from their typing style, images they post… and if even one person recognizes you, they can take advantage of your paranoia and make you feel like there are more than just the one. 4chan feels really big, but when it gets down to it, it's not as large as it feels and individuals are easily noticed, especially those who are invested in the board.

lolcow is a breeding ground for psychos. People who spend all their time obsessing about other people are psychos? Noooo…

This post reminded me to go touch some grass. I definitely have some kind of nosey psycho ocd or something about some cows (also just the tranny thread) and I literally can't pull myself away from lolcow sometimes.

It's so toxic and addicting and it breeds the worst types of interactions.
