I left in 2011, and I only went back to /a/ a few times when I had nothing to do to check if anything interesting was going to come that season. It wasn't that bad.
Last time I touched it was during third impact last year, and because someone told me hiroshima made something rad there.
Jesus Christ, I'm glad I've been sticking to small imageboards since then. I never thought I would see something like that.
Kraut is the last big, sane place, it seems.
