    Very surprising indeed. It’s like a hoax within a hoax. I especially liked this quote from the article: “Essentially, Rantic claims that it’s trying to get 4chan shut down for threatening women by … threatening women.”
    Regardless of whether or not it’s a prank, Rantic uses the standard “bring-women-down-through-nude-pics” tactic that made 4chan so infamous. This tactic isn’t used only for women who speak out against gender equality; it’s used against any woman who dares “violate” the rules of 4chan. There have been many cases of women posting on 4chan and getting their social media accounts compromised. As the internet becomes more and more connected, it will be easier to steal photos and other information.
