Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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. – JSONBog 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
What is 4chan?? – Tim Post Jul 21 '10 at 17:39
@Tim: A site you should not look for on a corporate network. – JSONBog 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.
