Originally Q appeared on 4chan back in late October and posted for a fair amount of time before notice was taken outside of that forum. This you
Once a certain point was reached in the general internet awareness and talk of Q spread to other places (reddit, here, etc) it meant that Qs
information was reaching a much wider audience. This resulted in dedicated attack posts in threads in which Q had been posting; Calm Before the Storm,
aka CBTS. The attacks took many forms from disgusting imagery, cp, and psychological attacks meant to dishearten those who don't have a high tolerance
for certain topics and shills attempting to derail the topics to name but a few.
Threads on 4 chan can only be replied to a certain number of times before they are archived. There can also only be a certain number of threads posted
to the boards (of which /pol/ is one of many) before the less active threads are dropped. Slide threads were being posted outside the CBTS threads in
an attempt to drive the CBTS thread off the bottom of the page.
A slide thread is a nonsense thread or one with very little content which has the purpose of 'sliding' other, more important threads off the bottom of
the page; think 'silly 'posts.
4chan also came under multiple DDOS attacks:
A Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack is an attempt to make an online service unavailable by overwhelming it with traffic from multiple
sources. They target a wide variety of important resources, from banks to news websites, and present a major challenge to making sure people can
publish and access important information.
Then there was also the fact that the mere typing in of the name Bill Priestap would get one ip-banned from 4chan which was evidence of 4 having been
Eventually, the DDOS attacks, derailing posts (by trolls and shills), and slide threads got to be too much to contend with and thus Q moved to 8chan
wherein they created a dedicated board in which to post their drops; greatwakening. This is also where the dedicated q-research board is located.
4chan and 8chan are operated independently of one another and have nothing to do with the other besides sporting a similar format. There are other
chan boards as well (2 is a really strange one) but 8 (infinite or full) and 4 (half) are the ones with which most here will be familiar.
Hope this helps.
btw, I'm going to be 49 next month so age has nothing to do with being able to be knowledgeable on these matters.
