What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

I came across this proposal: 4Chan and my internal flags went off.

For those of you who don't know, 4Chan does have interesting discussions on gaming and is a large producer of internet memes, however, it also has a lot of hentai, porn, and other inappropriate-for-work subjects.

Should sites like 4Chan be allowed on StackExchange/Area51?

Hmm, I think I'd list one of your pros as a con. –  mmyers Jul 21 '10 at 16:49

Hey man, don't call all hentai and porn distasteful like that. Only the good stuff is! Geez. –  XMLbog Jul 21 '10 at 16:53

What better for a site whose users value anonymity than a separate site that requires authentication! –  Shog9 Jul 21 '10 at 17:01
    
@Shog9: stack exchange doesn't require any kind of authentication. You can ask and answer questions without registering. Only the optional features (such as accepting answers or voting) requires you to register. –  Andreas Bonini Jul 21 '10 at 17:36

@Tim: A site you should not look for on a corporate network. –  XMLbog Jul 21 '10 at 17:45
    
@Kop: area51 however does require authentication. –  Shog9 Jul 21 '10 at 17:50

Bad move. Bad BAD move. In fact, its probably too late. They sniff the proposal and the proposal gets rocketed to #1. Remove it and they sniff THAT out... –  Won't Jul 21 '10 at 17:55

@Will if Meta/StackExchange can settle on what to do regarding the other proposals mentioned, they have nothing to complain about, and it's not prejudiced ( anymore >_o ... ) –  rlb.usa Jul 21 '10 at 18:14
    
@rlb They never forgive. They never forget. –  Won't Jul 22 '10 at 13:01

Meh; there's no mention of porn or /b/ in the proposal itself... While there are at least three proposals already on explicitly sex-oriented topics. If that bothers you, then don't follow them.
