before discord it was 4chan where all retards "hang around", after it you could slowly witness how instead of "4chan retards" there were lots of different discord retards that happen to post on 4chan. Once mods and jannies also became it's own discord things went downhill even more, which you could witness yourself with random and sudden anti /bbg/ vendeta
And I know it's all about discord, because I witnessed it slowly creeping in. It probably happened everywhere, but as I was mostly on /vg/ it's there where I noticed it. During the span of one online game, I witnessed how my 4chan "guild" turned into "4chan guild and discord part of it". If you didn't used it - you weren't "in". Obviously many tried to deny that, while many tried to retaliate, that's where the "why do you hate discord? because it's new?" meme came to life. Clear division started to form, there was 4chan and then there were discords that used 4chan. Obviously by the nature of it, it's discord that were always layer "above", simply because it was 2 places instead of one.
I can vividly remember the point in the same videogame that we used ingame text chat to talk, the text chat was at some point much slower, even sometimes abandoned suddenly by half the "guild" that clearly was still playing. How come all of sudden I couldn't get the same banter in chat that I could before, how was that that all of sudden instead of "question->response" chain, half the times there was nothing following the question. Either you suddenly get ignored because everyone is busy talking on discord, or whoever asked the question on ig text chat got their answer from someone on discord that they happen to be on. I was watching half the conversations in the game and was wondering "who the fuck you're talking to". And at the time I was confused, because just few months back the "guild" did not had discord and it didn't used to be the case.
And as I hopped from one general to the other I noticed that people hating on discord because of division it created was universal, not only on /vg/ but literally across the whole site.
You can say "well, mods always had irc" and sure, there always were rogues, there always was division, but I can bet my ass, that as that irc became more mainstream in the shape of discord, and as you ended up with even more divisions, it did impaced the resulting 4chan staff.
When wt snacks went rogue it was simple - 4chan faggot decided to fuck with 4chan.
Now you have "x discord, x community faggot" times y, that clearly results in less care for 4chan itself, because it's that discord community that matters first. You end up with one of those faggots in mods and janny crew? His community doesn't like something, or maybe likes something and forces it down everyone's throats? You gonna have board/general flooded with their shit, or as in case of /bbg/ outright deleted and banned. You can't get single fucking intervention anywhere, your reports mean nothing, yet there's always someone making sure that /bbg/ is deleted.
Yes, lot's of my own experience in here, but I'm fairly confident in claiming it isn't just me and just what I noticed, because it's very easy to see that every board and many generals suffer, because of discord communities that surround it. It's in the nature of that division - when you have one community "above" other, in this case many discord communites that originate(most probably not even in whole now) from one community, you gonna end up with situation where that discord community will be able to fuck with the community it originated from, simply because this community that is "below" doesn't belong to it and thus is not aware of anything that community does. And if you take into accout that all those discord communities consist of usuall retards surrounding 4chan, you can bet your ass they gonna be autistic about whatever they try to do and their shit will be seen all over the place, 24/7.
