Once upon a time, 4chan was inhabited by a bunch of nerds who sat around watching anime and posting funny images and some shock images from LUE. Then, one day, in 2006 or so, someone told someone else that 4chan existed, and it snowballed into this terrible site that exists today. It's full of nothing but malware, child pornography, and hate speech by 12-14 year olds calling people "newfags" when they've been on the site since 2008.
Most of its original userbase has migrated to /a/ or offsite entirely because of how terrible that site has become nowadays, and SharpFang is the perfect example of that. "Attacks" on people/sites/whatever is just stupid, and all these 14 year old internet cool kids have no idea how easy it is to prosecute them for it.
I know the guy who is in jail for the Scientology ddos right now, he used to hang out in the same IRCs I do, and he was around about a week before the conviction. Needless to say, he wishes he had never even found 4chan.
