>it runs on lynxchan and is full of pedos and absolute trash
I don't mind "pedos". Actual pedos are usually pretty benign & don't want the attention & eventual shutdowns posting ACTUAL CP brings, so they'll stick to their instagram legal pics & 3d lolis & shit, and their presence is typically a good sign the site is actually pretty "free". IMO.
8channel WAS garbage though, I didn't even realize it was another ACF fagfest for a while.
Then they shut it down. The cattle chuting shit they're doing is pretty clear, they've done it several times now, setting up some 'alternative' to ACF sites, getting everyone sick of them to hop on board, datamining them & then shutting it down so the ACF ones seem like the sole stable ones & noboy wants to trust any actual non-ACF sites that pop up.
