    It's the heart of the alt-right movement, along with 8chan. It's community is based on trolling, it's mostly harmless though, not the stuff the media labels trolling as. The comments about it being all porn and gore are just stereotypes. It has boards for many other things as well, like a politics board and international board.

    A place where the dregs of society can express their views.

    It has pictures of gore and the people there are just extremely racist and vulgar.

    I was saying I thought Stormfront was supposed to be some free speech bastion, but I've never been on it myself just heard about it.

    Something that you don't want to mess with, if you ever want to browse 4chan use an ip changing software so they can't track you down. Don't speak to anyone don't even post anything...unless you want to be attacked and hacked....
    Its basically if craiglist and reddit had a nsfw child or well the accessible dark web...
    This sounds like the movie series 'Taken'

    It's just a discussion forum, it's not a big deal. This said, downloading tor and going to the dark web is always good fun.

    You should stay off 4Chan because it's boring and they're losers, i.e. young men who are unemployed, angry and have no prospects in life. They're not hackers, they're not computer experts and you probably won't find illegal content given that the website is required to report such things to the police or else they are criminally liable.
