I have a question for all of you out there, and I'd very much like if you didn't judge me too badly.

Should I be proud or ashamed that I have never been on 4chan?

A lot of my friends and much of the online community says proud.  That 4chan is noobish and a plague on the interwebs. (And seeing the 4channess on the internet in several other places, I'd have to agree. Example below.)

WTF, Internet. WTF.
  But I've got this feeling that I've missed out on something.  Kind of like how using Yahoo over Google and Myspace before Facebook are like rites of passage to being a mature interneter.  Everyone was a noob once, and if they are no longer a noob, they have learned from their noobhood and became not a noob.  I too went through my phase of 'tpn liek n idoit n usin nmbers 4 wrds' and posting a lolcat at any excusable opportunity.

No wait, I still do that.  But it's more because the cats are just so cuuute! >.> *ahem* Anyway...

So I feel like while it isn't a good idea for me to get involved in 4chan now, there's still a part of my internet life missing that I may never understand when other people reference it.  In fact, up until about a year ago, I thought that 4chan was a person not a website, which made a noob of me at the time.

I can own up to when I'm a noob in a situation, but that ability is already one step closer to achieving pwnage.  (Which I pronounce pawnage.  Yes, I'm aware it's supposed to be p'ownage. I'll make another post about this later.)

Anway, what is your opinion, readers?  Am I a priveledged individual to never have to suffer through 4chan noobhood?  Or am I a noob, now, for never having experienced this rite of passage to not a noob?

Until next time,
Cap'n Kyrie
