'''9gag''' is yet another [[Memebase]] kno … '''9gag''' is yet another [[Memebase]] knockoff that similarly steals [[image macros]], [[rage comics]], [[demotivational posters]] and anything else found on /[[b]]/ and then proceeds to put their ugly watermarks on the bottom of the image to claim as their own. In a nutshell, 9gag is the toilet bowl of the internet, being last to receive internet content by the time it becomes a [[BS|putrid pile of feces]] that is in need of getting flushed. Or you can compare it to that idiot that's last to laugh at a joke an hour (a year in this case) after the joke was told, and then re-telling said joke to a bunch of 12-year old kids/manchilds and claiming it as their own.
The purpose of their site is "[[Rebecca Black|just for fun]]", but mainly to milk buckets of cash off random pictures they found on 4chan and other sites that share a similar nature. 9gag makes effective use of the content hosted on their site, being shared through social networking websites, the most prominent being [[Facebook]]. As users can like and comment on images directly from their Facebook accounts, they become spammed throughout your Facebook news feed, ensuing one a feed full of [[unfunny]] rage comics.
In a cesspool that is ridden with websites that take advantage of [[memes]] and other bizarre yet trending internet phenomenon that became old news on [[4chan]] months ago in order to commercialize them and generate revenue off of them, it creates a surge of newfags. This in turn causes the pseudo-oldfags, with their edgy attitude of the internet, to become outrageously bitter when they see any meme outside of /b/ become mainstream. 9gag yet again proves that [[original content]] is dead beyond death.
9gag uses a fairly simple layout with their website widgets customized with cringeworthy memes. They have three self-explanatory main pages: ''What's Hot'', ''Trending'', and ''Vote''. On 9gag, voting on images requires you to sign up to the site in order to view or use the page. There was a time where a registration wasn't needed to vote on images, however, because of the [[9GAG#4chan vs 9gag: A Tale of Internet Idiocy|war between 4chan and 9gag]], 9gag has made it so that you need an account to vote on images to prevent Anons from down voting all the images out of spite.
In addition to these pages, 9gag also has a "fast" page, which gives you a more simple and lighter version of the "What's Hot" page. 9gag also features keyboard shortcuts, those being:
:*C - for commenting
:*H - hating
:*J- Next image
:*K - Previous image
:*L - Like and
:*R- random image
==''Le 9gagger xD''==

What makes 9gag even less tolerable is their user base. Simply put, the majority of "le 9gagger", as they call themselves (yeah, we thought it sounded stupid too), comprises of [[norp]]s who recently discovered ''how2internets'' and everything that is wrong with the internet. 9gaggers are a loathsome bunch, surpassing even the people at [[Reddit]] or [[Gaia Online]] in terms of general inanity and annoyance.
The average 9gag fan tend to overuse the word "le", "xD" and "lulz" to the point where even Reddit users and /b/tards would sigh in disgust. People of 9gag also believe that 9gag invented memes, and the term mainly refers strictly to [[rage face]]s. Because of this, some people will even refuse to look at an image or laugh at it after seeing that it has a 9gag watermark underneath it. 9gag fans take "[[I'm so random|TROLOLOL LE IM SO RANDOM xDDD !!!11 U MAD BRO?]]" to a new plateau, and because of it, a bunch of new jokes for the [[Annoying Facebook Girl]] [[Advice variation]] has been formed given that no one's safe from 9gag on [[Facebook]].
Just like Memebase or any other internet-laden website owned by Cheezburger, 9gag just loves to watermark images even when they clearly aren't their own. Ironically enough, one of 9gag's ''9 rules'' requires "originality and creativity" and [[unfunny|funny content]]. Failing to upload a ''funny'' image will grant a user an account suspension, although one wouldn't need to worry about that since the site owners' and general audiences' sense of humor is equivalent to that of a retarded hyena on laughing gas.
