Lainchan is a cyberpunk imageboard. It's boards include /sec/ (information security), /tech/, /λ/ (programming), a few other boards with topics ranging from drugs to lucid dreaming and also the politics/Nazi containment board /civ/. The premier board /cyb/ was split up as Lainchan is supposed to be a cyberpunk imageboard, not just have a cyberpunk imageboard.
Anonymous posters are given a random cyberpunk name (don't assume that everyone is a namefag). Various naughty words have edgy cyberpunkesque word filters:
- shit: soykaf
- fuck: fuaark
- banned: derezzed
- bloat: boat
- sucks: is like kicking dead whales down the beach
Lainchan has a video stream, zine called lainzine, internet radio station and IRC server.
Their name (and mascot) are taken from the anime Serial Experiments: Lain.
Fake end of Lainchan
In mid-2015, Lainchan pretended to go offline. An announcement was made that some users made a Lainchan 2.0. The link for it (now down) redirected to the Filthy Frank video "IT'S JUST A PRANK, BRO".
In late 2015, Lainchan moderation revealed themselves. It turned out that nearly everyone on the moderation team were under the age of 20. The reason for revealing themselves was in an effort to get people to buy stickers and donate to the site moderation. This included a live stream with the 18 year old owner literally whoring himself by jerking off on camera. The former owner of Lainchan, Kalyx is also under the age of 18 (believed to be 14) and is a macfag.
After a protracted battle with Nazi trolls and spammers following the acrimonious crashing of 8chan with no survivors, which collaterally resulted in a reorganization of Lainchan and the end of /cyb/, Kalyx sold Lainchan to Appleman1234. The person has continually proven himself to be worse than Kaylix, not knowing common jargon such as the words usergroup, userspace, or even the term systems.
