Thanks a lot, Broken Britain.
Britchan was an imageboard for British people who dislike mixing with foreigners. With a userbase composed entirely of chavs and pretend gentlemen, it eventually crashed and burned in a shitstorm of administrative incompetence and immigrant invasion. In short, it was a perfect reflection of British society.
— Thin-blood moralfag on Britchan, turned lame and ineffectual troll.
This thin-blood has lead to some unlikely lulz, no less a single bloodminded troll who unsuccessfully attempts to flood boards with abuse, despite the posting delay between new threads, and also the fact that nobody cares.
Lulz at Britchan
In May 2008, the hideous prospect of over 9000 emo cutters marching across London in protest against the depiction of the band My Chemical Romance in the media made Anonymous choke in the privacy of his own damn penthouse. Action was needed to tap into this almost endless flow of potential lulz, see main article for moar.
Goatse in The Guardian
- Goatse in The Guardian
On May 20th, 2008, the bleeding-heart liberal Guardian newspaper ran an article about some faggotry that occurred at the May Scientology raid. Foolishly, the Guardian's on-line version of the document linked directly to an image hosted on Britchan. Lulz ensued.
- Operation: AntiFreeze, London: A welcome interruption to the 2008 snoozefest that was yet another spontaneous flash mob.
On Wednesday 30th April 2008, at exactly 18:24 GMT, a couple of hundred strangers decided to stand still in London's Liverpool Street Station, despite the fact that the event had been widely advertised and cleared with the authorities, thus reducing any potential subversive impact to that of casual curiosity.
Luckily for everyone else, Anonymous showed up, loudly invoked Astley's Law, and danced a merry conga through the frozen flashers.
Tasteful flyers of Rick Astely being crucified for all our sins were forced into the still hands of the rainy-day subversives, who got quite butthurt about the whole thing.
All in all, I'm making a note here: HUEG SUCCESS.
Kerrang Radio Raid
Britchan were looking for a good and easy radio to troll. Kerrang radio came to mind, and thus the call ins began. Some epic wins were had, although not many, but still some. Britchan piled onto Kerrang after a bunch of moralfags from #london #brumanon went to the Kerrang radio office, failed to get on the show as it was pre-recorded (namely because Chris Wrapson is a spineless twat). Brit Channers then tried and failed to convince the listeners that Scientology was an evil cult. Many believe that Gary made the best call, which will help demonstrate just how fail their ring-in raid was:
Pete Price Radio Raid
Britchan again decide to phone into a radio show this time it was Pete Price the homosexual who has his own phone in show called “Unzipped“, Gary again manages to Bel-Air live on air.
One Britchan anon reported Pete Price to Ofcom for going "batshit at an Irish troll", a short time before the raids began. His radio station suspended him without pay for a week over the incident, according to a letter the anon got from Ofcom.
Lake's Closed (Due To Nigras In Pedal Boats)
Some Londonfags tried to perform a swastiget on a lake in Hyde Park last Sunday.
This six minute YouTube video (copyright claim lol wut) explains it better than any ED article ever could, sadly. Going on the evidence presented, it was an epic win for all of those involved. However, since not everyone who uses Britchan lives in the south of England, it's not so easy for those who live in cities where there is no visible 'Anonymous' activity, and it means getting to something like this is near-impossible, although this gives the added protection of not being facefagged and retaining the ability to laugh at the 'performance artists' if it turns out to be an epic fail.
