To be blunt and to the point: I've witnessed three splits of our community so far the last 8 years and I have detected a certain tendency I would like to reflect upon if that's okay with you guys.
First, and following thereunder, schematic representations:>back on 8chan>OldBO starts banning pro-imperialist talking points surrounding Syria<RESULT: "split board" is created
Analysis of the split (and sorry if this hurts your sentiments, but I'm way past of idgaf):>main 8ch/leftypol quality of posts improve, we are witnessing way higher % of effort posts and so on, while
