>417904 When +4chan was about to die (FOR REAL THIS TIME!!!!), I made a 8chan backup. A month or so later, an unexpected helper showed up, promising to help the +4 owner fix and run the site. So, +4 kept on living, and it still lives, to this day. Making my 8ch backup completely unneeded. Hence the funeral.
>417828 I think most people just forgot about this site. The site being semi-broken for a few years probably didn't help, and neither does the fact that most people browse from mobiles (we don't have a mobile layout yet).
>417752 After my account being deleted without explanation (I don't even know if it was joining too many servers and forgetting to check one that got up to bad stuff while I wasn't looking, or just my cat somehow pressing keys in a way that navigated to the account deletion page.) I wasn't sure if I should bother joining again, and this seems like reason enough not to bother. Refusing to give my phone nubmer to social media is why I'm not using Twitter either! Besides, isn't the whole point of using an invite-based system to let people vet each other before giving them an invite?

Besides, it's not like spammers have a whole range of tools being made for them to circumvent automated checks. Why else do you think we don't bother with CAPTCHA here? $0.50 USD for 1000 human-performed CAPTCHA solves last time I checked.
