Yeah, and you must use it 'cause you're lame.
Their latest thing has been the Jessi Slaughter fiasco, which everyone thought was going to be the end of 4Chan, but it wasn't. It also led to a war on Gawker.com that failed, not because the 4chan hackers suck, because Gawker got lucky and it was an unorganized raid on Gawker's servers, and some of Gawker's technicians caught it before it could go down.

A: Have you ever been to 4chan man?
B: Yeah It's fucking sick
A: hey C, have you been to 4chan before
C: that's my homepage man.
In a world where even music has cheapened and obviated the concept of irony, 4chan still practices it. It's often hard for even experienced users to tell the difference between their peers and people too new to the website or too retarded to understand it.
You will not understand 4chan AT ALL until you have been there daily for at least two years.
If you go there the first time, leave, and make a post about it on UrbanDictionary saying how immature and awful it is, you have been greatly trolled and deserve to die for your gullibility. While people claiming to be 'oldfags' hate 'newfags', true 'oldfags' appreciate them as the newer and more naive the general crowd, the better camouflage they make for the TRUE Anonymous users.
That said, there is a lot of unjustifiable on 4chan, because the whole point of chan anonymity is for not everyone in the community to be of the same mold. That is what makes it shocking and/or retarded, but also what tends to make it amazingly clever in a way no one who hasn't lurked for years picking up the nuances can understand.
Also, newfags think it is an army or a political movement, it isn't...it's a somewhat ill-concieved attempt at an extradimensional reconstruction of human thought.
Also, it isn't your personal army unless you are good at social engineering, in which case you can trick new members and the weak-minded into doing your bidding.
...or at least it would if Moot made it current and got rid of the new captchas -_-
