I lurked 4/b/ from 2009-2012 and basic trolling resulted in mass sensationalism from normalfags and internet tough guys that didn't even know what a troll was.
It was like shooting fish in a barrel; all it took was a dozen of autistic teenagers to summon the cows into meme history.
retards don't make for good cocks anymore as there are so many deviants openly documenting their lives, there is nothing to expose when its already accepted by society.
people think they are "trolling" by giving these people donations.
The whole CWC, Habbo raids, boxxy shit, jessie slaughter, weev shit, etc. set the template for edgelords that want to be part of "moralfag raid culture".
