While I agree with our current "invisible sage" should remain the standard for imageboards, and MLPchan for that matter, I also fear that one of the drawbacks of this change is the exact opposite of this post. Think about it. How many newfags actually first learned about "sage" by just stumbling upon it? How will they learn about it now? I'm not going to worry about it here, but now that it's invisible on 4chan, the shitposting hasn't stopped, it's just delayed
. My theory regarding these events is that in about a year from now, there's going to be a surge of ignorant newfags that never learn about "how to sage" properly, at the very least, on 4chan first.
With all due respect, has anyone even contemplated the thought of this yet?
