13:40:16 ~copypaste last night i turned off post stats before going to bed
13:40:20 ~copypaste that's why everything is zeroed
13:40:30 ~copypaste i found the reason for the original complaint [/v/ takes a long time to post to]
13:40:33 ~copypaste get ready for this
13:42:04 ~copypaste inserting into the board_stats table was taking many seconds
13:42:10 ~copypaste it was getting worse with more and more records
13:42:27 ~copypaste and because board_stats never prunes its historical record, combined with josh's inability to focus on database design
13:43:01 ~copypaste we all assumed that it was just the original reason i started the search for a new IB software, was making things worse
13:43:02 ~copypaste not so
13:43:31 ~copypaste not only did Josh fail at Next, but his incompetent post stats patch degraded preformance over time silently because josh sucks at DB design
13:43:33 ~copypaste what the fuck.
13:43:59 ~copypaste that's why things continued to get worse even with 8chan's user count decreasing
13:44:05 ~copypaste because the post stats table continued to grow
13:44:18 ~copypaste josh's insistence that algorithmic complexity did not apply to him was…wrong.
13:44:33 ~copypaste this is becoming shakesperean tragedy levels of sad.
13:44:35 maksev so basically
13:44:38 maksev hidden grenade
13:44:45 ~copypaste more like hidden balloon
13:44:46 maksev how fun i do so love db faults
13:44:56 ~copypaste or like hidden frog in slowly heating up water
13:45:01 Reveton josh is a moron. big O is hardly even computer science, it's just a basic understanding of how many operations you're doing
13:45:07 ~copypaste you've all noticed posting is better now with no stats right?
13:45:08 maksev picture a hentai where the girl is constantly force fed water up her ass until assplosion copypaste
15:32:23 ranix wait did you just fix next by reverting one change
15:33:44 ranix oh you mean josh fucked up vichan
15:33:46 ranix well
15:34:08 ranix so he fucked up vichan and caused an emergency that required him to be hired as a full time coder to fix is
15:34:11 ranix it
15:34:13 ranix is that about the size of it
15:35:06 maksev yes
tl;dr the entire reason Infinity Next was "needed" was because Josh fucked up 8ch in the first place. All of 8ch's performance problems in 2015 can be traced back to Josh. Through malice or just plain incompetence, he sabotaged the site. That "Goon plant" theory is looking more and more likely.
