Notes

  • The Anonymous archiver snagged roughly 90% of all posts on 4Chan between October 2006 and November 2008.
  • This archive contains about 85% of all posts ever made on 4Chan from its inception up to November 2008 (4Chan had about 20-25 million posts in its first 3 years, then another ~170 million in its next 2, which is the period most of this archive covers).
  • Just over half of the posts in the archive are from /b/.
  • The 2005 posts are all from /r/.
