The word fag, or faggot, is the 4chan general insult for anything that Anonymous does not like, including himself. Contrary to popular belief, this meaning is exclusive to 4chan and does not necessarily imply a disdain for a non-mainstream sexual preference, though it can given the context, and by means of referring to those that like to take it up the ass metaphorically. By extension, faggotry is the science of acting like a faggot. Fag is frequently affixed to common words and memes to give them a negative connotation, though by 4chan standards it is only a mild insult when not paired up with other curse words. For example, a namefag is somebody using a name, while a fagfag is a smoker, a straightfag is straight and a homofag is a homo. It is uncommonly believed this use of fag followed moot and other former Goons from Something Awful, but this theory would likely be proven false.
The rarest way of identifying oneself on 4chan, emailfags are users who put their addresses in the email field rather than the typical sage or noko. The obvious disincentive to doing this is that emails are very easily spammed; thus, only dumb-as-fuck posters or those who use fake addresses become emailfags. Ironically, emailfags are more common on worksafe boards than /b/, the board that, at times, was Forced Anonymous. It was the most likely to spawn emailfags since the email field was basically the only way people could differentiate one another on /b/. It is believed /b/ s natural Hive Mind and massive size is what suppresses the presence of emailfags.
Unlike Namefags, emailfags are generally better regarded because their posts are semi-Anonymous; most posters never realize they re talking to an emailfag unless they re butthurt enough to double check what at first looks like a sage. Once discovered, though, emailfags are berated just like any other Namefag, with the added danger of their emails getting compromised.
Namefag is related to tripfag, specifically referring to any user who posts with a name, but no tripcode. Namefags are generally treated with similar derision to tripfags, but are more easily trolled due to the simplicity of assuming their identity for mocking. Most Namefags are either posters with a good enough reputation to not get imitated or newfags too stupid to use a tripcode. For these reasons, namefags are much more rare than tripfags, though they are not as rare as emailfags.
Newfag refers to what conventional forums would call a newbie. Usually clueless, overeager former lurkers who have yet to gain a feel for 4chan norms and make their presence blatantly obvious through their rampant stupidity. It can also refer to forum users who use memes outside of 4chan, or read about 4chan exploits on places from second hand sources and decide to see what all the fuss is about, hoping that by associating with 4chan they appear hip/trendy/cool. Posters who disagree with other posters or make opinions that seem out of place for someone who knows how to LURK MORE are also called newfags.
Newfags are generally disliked on 4chan for these often very true stereotypes; newfags themselves tend to be too stupid to hate in kind. Use of newfag, much like tripfag dates back to the dawn of 4chan, and have been used liberally by oldfags and newfags alike.
Concern over newfags arose during Newfag Summer, when it was realized newfags were not only immigrating to 4chan in herds, but that they lacked a typical 4channer s adept sense of sarcasm and started to take colloquial hyperbole as reality. This lead to a distortion of the meaning of several memes outside of forums, notably the /a/ meme GAR, which is regularly bastardized as a sign of approval by newfags.
Though newfags can come from a variety of sources, it is common knowledge that almost all new /b/ newfags discovered 4chan from Gaia Online. Since about 2009, newfags continue to appear from all areas of Internet faggotry.
An oldfag is someone who isn t a newfag. A person who has years of browsing, usually starting from the first year or two of 4chan s inception. Still can be possibly annoying, and whine about Newfag Summer, or in rose tinted glasses, bitch and troll about how the olden days were better. Often seen telling off newfags, but not with impunity due to participating in the dumbfag ego fest.
May also imply those with preferences that are from last decade or so, and are ardently attached to such standards to the point of acting like a complete asshead.
A moralfag is a fag that shows zeal and ardent imposition through aligning themselves with a set of moral rules and laws to be in the right and to shove them into another s face online if they ever get into an internet fight they instigated or have absolutely no part of whatsoever. Very relevant and related to the acts of White Knighting, and Social Justice Warrior-ing.
Moralfags are faggots not because they have a code or set of rules to abide by, but because they follow them out of the idea that they will bring you rewards, makes you an elite person, and it allows you to win, than out of any personal development and application. Because of this, they purposely seek trouble and throw themselves into situations beyond their control, making things worse and dishonors the rules and codes which they follow.
To be moral, means that one is wise, takes their lives seriously, no matter what it is they want to do, and to be humble about it. Moralfags ironically lack these traits.
Tripfag short for tripcode fag is a derogatory term for anyone who uses a tripcode. Just as some tripcode users bash Anonymous posting, so too do some Anonymous bash tripcode users. Anonymous s gripe stems from the perception that many but not all tripcode users try to use their posts to gain personal accolades, whereas Anonymous prefers having the commentary directed at the post itself instead of the poster. Why anyone would actively seek out approval and flattery from people so warped and twisted as the 4channers is almost as unfathomable as why people bother arguing about tripcodes and anonymous posting in the first place. Flame wars and shitstorms over the merits or lack thereof of posting with a tripcode were growing increasingly common on /b/ prior to the institution of Forced Anonymous.
Normal tripcodes can be cracked with only mild difficulty, but secure tripcodes, which are identified by having double exclamation point . . after the tripfag s name, are nearly impossible to work out or stylize, for that matter. It is common knowledge that secure tripcodes are for jerks, and those who use them are mocked even more mercilessly than ordinary tripfags.
An even more insulting term called tripfriend has arisen in worksafe boards, originating from /a/ after a tripfag named moonlander delivered on Ultimate Survivor Kaiji OST rips. While the initial use was affectionate, Anonymous quickly shit on its new sacred meme by using it on very asshole, annoying tripfags, creating stigma whenever posted. Use of tripfriend has declined massively since early 2008, proving that even trolls can get bored of trying to irritate 4chan.

Instead of registration. A tripcode is the hashed result of a password that allows one s identity to be recognized without storing any data about users.
To secure tripcode you just need to add a second trip character and trip phrase. The secure tripcode will not be the same from site to site and may not be the same.

Tripcodes let you verify your identity on anonymous forums such as 4chan. Due to the way tripcodes are generated it s possible to embed your own text in a tripcode with a tripcode generator.
The downside to this is that other people may also generate tripcodes to find tripcode keys that are similar. While it is possible to find the exact same tripcode, it is currently not practical for the average person to do so.
To stop the cracking of tripcodes secure trips were created, but they do not allow personalization like traditional tripcodes.
There is a tradeoff between the inherent insecurity of normal tripcodes and the unrecognizability of secure tripcodes.
Few people will bother to memorize a secure tripcode ie. .Oo43raDvH61, but most will be able to remember a normal, generated tripcode ie. Hello72IJC.
Most users will find normal, non-secure tripcodes offer the best balance of verified identity and recognizability.
If you don t plan on using a generated tripcode, it s recommended you use a secure tripcode.
A normal tripcode, without any words or phrases, is as unintelligible as a secure tripcode while offering less security.
There are two main tripcode generating programs: Tripcode Explorer and MTY, both of which come from Japan s 2chan forum which uses the same
tripcode system as 4chan. Tripcode Explorer is relatively easy to use, has been largely translated into English, and offers reasonable speed.
MTY can be significantly faster than Tripcode Explorer a 10x speedup is not unusual, but is harder to use and requires an ATI video card to
achieve its faster speed 3000, 4000, and 5000 series cards work, such as the 4850 and 5850. A program to take advantage of Nvidia cards was in
development, Tripcode Explorer for CUDA, but it seems work was halted.

Tripcode Explorer is pretty self-explanatory, but here s a basic walk-through. If you just want to find a word or phrase without any constraints, just enter it in the Strings to find box, like in the above screenshot. Then just press the green arrow and wait until it finds you a tripcode key. You ll probably want to keep your word or phrase less than seven charactors, otherwise it may take an unreasonable amount of time to find the tripcode.
If you want to customize the tripcode more, you can use regular expressions. For example, a caret symbol will left align your word or phrase. Putting brackets acts as a logical OR. For instance, Oo Pp will find any tripcodes containing OP, Op, oP, or op. The screenshot below shows H Ee Ll Ll Oo which a left justified H followed by the continued spelling of hello in upper or lowercase, ie HeLLo or HElLo.
By allowing upper and lowercase characters you will decrease the time it takes to find the tripcode you desire.
When you ve found a tripcode you like, simply right click and select Copy trip key and then paste it into the name field at 4chan ie Name y1 yWS2.
If you go into Tools -- Options and deselect Restrict search to ASCII characters you can speed up the search dramatically,
but you ll need to change the encoding for the tripcode key to work. Open up Notepad and paste the tripcode key into a new document. Then go to Encoding- Character Sets- Japanese and select Shift-JIS. Highlight the tripcode key and then copy and paste into 4chan.
MTY is the tripcode generator for x32 and x64 processor systems with AMD/ATI GPUs of 3000 series and above.
If you fit that description, then read on and follow the instructions here.
Make sure your graphics drivers are up to date. This file was written on 26th June 2010, when the latest was Catalyst 10.6.
The included DLLs should work, but if you have problems do the following:
For 32-bit systems: find amdcalcl.dll, amdcaldd.dll, and amdcalrt.dll in your C: Windows System32 directory. Copy them to the folder with mty_cal_w32.exe, and rename them so that amd is replaced with ati. So, amdcalcl.dll would become aticalcl.dll, etc.
For 64-bit systems: follow the same instructions as above, but the files will have 64 after their names - amdcalcl64.dll for example. Same location as before.
Make sure that the 4 files are named properly and are in the same directory, and then modify the target.txt file located with this text file. Place any words you d like to find on separate lines. Regular expressions are supported.
Make sure all 5 files are in the same directory now, and then run either mty_cal_w32.exe or mty_cal_x64.exe depending on your version of windows is 32 or 64-bit. This has only been tested on Windows 7 with a Radeon 5870 and a 4850, and the creator of MTY is japanese and NOT ME. The official location for these binaries is at Sourceforge.
When you ve found your trips, open log.txt with Notepad and then go to Encoding- Character Sets- Japanese- Shift-JIS. Then copy and paste into 4chan.
