Ircimages is a poor man's Google Images. It spiders images placed in the topics of IRC channels, and allows its users to make comments on said images. Ircimages was started at least 100 years ago after IRC was invented by Khaled. Recently, Ircimages has become less focused on its original goals, and at least 50% of the images posted are by "respected" members, not spidered from IRC topics anymore, and usually are pictures of fat women or memes at least 100 years old.
Typical Ircimage users are probably obese, much like CowboyNeal and exhibit taste in women as if they were worldwide heart throbs who could have anyone. In reality, most of them are probably virgins.
It is often a race amongst Ircimages users to liken almost every image to an Australian troll named "nate", from being nate's mum to being nate's passport picture. nate is allegedly a "well hated person" according to Wikipedia, and thus is the source of all lulz against him on Ircimages. He was originally named adolfH, but since being banned multiple times he has returned as "nate," "fingerbang," "fingerbangII," and "adolphH."
It is also customary for users to post "it's a man" on pictures of beautiful women, and users posting that some women are ugly, yet in reality these same users are probably lucky to have sex with a mare, just like Mr. Hands, never mind a man. Also, everyone hates anons, because of course, they are lifeless faggots whose opinions will never matter =D. European anons are especially hated because all Europeans, without exception, are slobbering fucktards who don't even have the balls to post with a fake name. Anyone with a job can delete their comments. Silume is known on Ircimages as the village gorilla. Sadly in the pictures provided, we can't see the inbred retard's face. The Ircimages chatroom(s) can be found on Quakenet or 1BadAssBird
Usnjay is a frequent poster but only on images he feels are useful to reinforce his particular political agenda. A usnjay post is inevitably followed by a Yamamoto post, resulting in long, stunningly dull diatribes about politics, occasionally leavened with insults and threats of violence from Yamamoto. Usnjay seems to be some sort of Republican, Yamamoto's politics seem to be calculated to annoy most people.
The Anon Troll
Recently, an Anon has been trolling notable Ircimages users, posting items such as:
"Anon> The Christmas Spamerama - Ends 01.01.07. Meh, fucking pointless, clueless, overweight loner, who insists on droning everyone with his banal office bore humour. Let's hope Santa brings him testicular cancer. Palffy, some fag newb who gets easily wound up and follows meh like a brainless puppy, shares his lack of humour. Tard. RayNinBlood, a chubby 15 yr old who gets overexcited at naked images, and got royally owned by me on several occasions, now hides at the back like a scared bitch. Watcher, remember the little fat kid at school who smelled of disinfectant and piss? This is him. Does deleting errands for Jason in the hope he will get noticed, when he gets angry enough he uses a random insult generator off the net. Daft cunt. Whitetrash and CAMELTOE, typical thick American kiddy-fiddlers, the internet is the only place where they can speak their tiny hillbilly minds. They probably work for Mexicans in a 7-11. I owned them so badly last year they switched the anons off. Weak as piss."
The troll has had its success in provoking reaction including:
"Zarion> anon you have yet to "own" anyone, however you have proven that you are one sad individual, without the ability to compose even a single interesting insult, beyond that you show a great graving for attention by posting the same useless attempts at provoking the members. And when you start provoking or "owning" me, please try to come up something original."
"Whitetrash> The Christmas Spamerama - Ends 01.01.07............hopefully that is how much more time the Dr. has given me to live.I know I was pwned hard by Anon and my britches are down around my ankles. One who copies and pastes the repeated pile of shit like I do, appreciate a guy like anon .You, are they champion anon, one who all anons can look to for advice. Rally your troops and bring along some cock for good measure. My brain cells can't match the turd I just dropped in the shitter.Even if I could figure out how to register there is another way there is no way I'd be more then a sorry ass. I amuse myself by taking pictures of my asshole and emailing them to strangers"
Whitetrash's reply is typical of the "Phantom ignore"; where a user tells the world and makes it clear that he has ignored someone, yet will still reply to "ignored" posts.
Hiding User Images
Despite the original premise of Ircimages being a site that indexed picture files various 12 year olds had posted in IRC Channel topics, users were allowed to upload their own pictures. Some argue that Ircimages is thus no better than sites such as Flickr. After time, at least 99 out of 100 images were posted by Whitetrash and were either women he has no means of attracting or images from Rotten. Thus, Ircimages is losing its original idea and now becoming Whitetrash's own personal photo album. Sadly, as in real life for the CowboyNeal body double, no one actually cares. Jason decided to leave user posted images hidden by default, which restored what the site was actually meant to do (to an extent). This had the effect of creating pages upon pages of nothingness, like exhibit A to the left.
