I think there are a few /pol/ anons who were referred there and decided to set up shop, however ruefully. It's definitely not for everyone, but the level of discussion (at least for threads not about horse pussy) is generally high. There is also a self-improvement board, which should have something worthwhile.>08chan
I've never been there, so I don't know. The only thing I've heard about that place is that /tech/ uses it (obviously), and a few /v/ anons used it too, but now they've all returned to 8glow, julay, or 4chan.
