Some of the content is amusing, but I rarely laugh and some posts are boring enough for me to skip through altogether. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it looks like the only way to comment on posts is with a Facebook account. Lame. As much as I'd like to comment on some posts, I'm not creating a FB account just to comment on the site. Speaking of comments, the place is overrun with annoying ass Grammar Nazis. FFS, just STFU already. 

I go there every couple days or so.

9gag is the internet whipping boy. Most of their content is taken from reddit, 4ch@n, or other websites and then they get blamed for stuff they didn't do (see cutting for beiber and I can count to potato)

They steal all of their stuff from other sites and they don't even give credit to the people who authored the content. They also have a fake vote system. All of the submissions are controlled by admins and not users. Try Reddit instead.

Pretty much an inferior website to Reddit, which still has its own fair share of stupidity, but also has more funny content, news, better memes, and some actual intelligent people.

My friend has actually got some of the post on trending, so is not totally rig. Though yes the admins would often times rig their own post to the front.

I still go on there all the time, since is like everyone else said is stolen content from all the other sites. Basically a one stop shop for me :P though since OT is against mainstream stuff for the most part than it is natural to hate this site.

I would love to browse reddit, but the format of the site is way too messy/complicated for regular users to figure out. The format of both reddit and chan has kept me away from it.

Lately reddit has been putting out more good content than Chan. Chan has really gone down hill in the past couple of years.

That and the quality of the non-porn that gets posted has heavily deteriorated over the past few years.

The images are not funny and most of the "did you know" style images are completely fake or missleading and the worst part is that the entire audience automatically agrees with them. I remember an image saying how Tarantino describes the deadly viper assassination squad in pulp fiction, and quotes the movie, none of the descriptions fitted the actual KB characters (the guy even said quoted "the french girl was a sex expert" and compared it to Sophie who was not even part of the DVAS) and everyone on the comments were like "OMG HOW DID I NEVER NOTICED?! THIS IS SO TRUE ITS SO OBVIOUS WTH WAS I THINKING HOW DIDNT I REALIZED TARANTINO IS A GOD HE IS SO CLEVER HIDING STUFF LIKE THIS!"

I honestly got into it by browsing on my phone with the Baconreader app.  And yeah, you get used to it after awhile, but I see your point.

I like it. I don't go on the site all that often though, I just use the app on my phone
