    Go to anonymous image board to post anonymously. Once there find a way to identify oneself. This makes perfect sense.

    I post Anon 99.9999999999999% of the time. I only use a tripcode when I am posting a sticky or something.

    I have never really had a problem with people using tripcodes. I never got why people hated them so much.

    Because 4chan is known for its anonymity and using a tripcode is a bad omen, apparently, and nobody is capable to adapt to change.

    That's why people also say "What happened to my /b/?" all the fucking time; nobody is still used to the change and everybody's getting stupider. It's like niggers and hurr'cane katrina; once the shit hits the fan, everybody goes bat-shit crazy and nothing will ever be the same.

    I tried using trips but it didn't take. In any case, why would anyone care that they're speaking to The Member Formerly Known As Baya Rae 4900 of all people? Also, people can impersonate you.

    1) Go to anonymous board
    2) Defeat the concept by using an identifier
    3) ?????
    4) debt

    Sometimes, like in "Ask a X all you want to know", or for elaborate trollings, they're handy

    There are some tripfags who derail threads with their posts, but there are some (like me) who are no different from any other anon. People can choose to derail a thread if they see a tripfag, so it's not all the fault of the person using the tripcode. People need to stop blaming others for their own actions.
