People have become tired, and having to move from website to website to escape spying and data collection fractures the community and kills motivation. I wouldn't be surprised if the majority of /tech/ jumped into a bunker that made itself visible for a little while and has been hiding out, but I am being optimistic.
The truth is, there are no large alternatives to 8chan, it was always the big brother to 4chan, and now that it is gone, it was the final nail in the head for many, and people just lost hope, and many of the bunkers didn't make themselves known for fear of shills and idiots coming onto them. Fucking /pol/ has been expanding its influence and has pretty much taken the websites it resides on hostage and disregards all other boards, it was a massive mistake to ever allow /pol/ to flourish. I personally am just tired, I am tired of imageboards, I am tired of the current state of the world, and I just am not as motivated anymore to hide, I pretty much have my computer at a great condition at the moment, and I just want to see this all end.
Every single day, I see communities die and be destroyed by invaders and hostile groups that desire their destruction. I blame fucking /pol/ for this, they brought the normalfags to the website, they completely corrupted memes to push their agenda, and they disregard everyone else on the website. /pol/ has been around for less than a decade, but when it came, many idiots jumped on as this new medium was promising to them, and they corrupted it.
Sorry for the rant, I just feel sad seeing such a great medium and board fade into obscurity.
