In 2008, /r9k/ was initial introduced as an experimental forum powered by Robot9000, a special script programmed by xkcd artist Randall Munroe that would filter reposts from displaying up. The goal with the experiment was to find out if a board could develop its personal subculture if memes and copypasta had been heavily discouraged. Nevertheless, because the neighborhood evolved, the board transformed into a sharehub for greentext stories, or original anecdotes of social awkwardness or mishaps as told by users who refer to themselves as "robots." On January 17th, 2011, /r9k/ was then deleted because it no longer served its original purpose, but on November 10th, the board was resurrected, followed by the removal on the Robot9000 script altogether on July 30th, 2014.
The board is well-known for its stories of social awkwardness and nostalgia of your simpler occasions, too as discussion of abnormal social behaviour. It truly is heavily applied by NEETs (Not in Education, Employment, or Training) who regret their life choices and hold anger and disdain more than males with active social and sexual lifes. it also containts Continuous discussions about relationships with females and loved ones. Dispite all of this, the board holds heavy pride in its own nature, with heavy hate over normies or "Normalfags" who usually do not have an understanding of their culture too as constant calls to get a "Beta Uprising". this has spawned various memes.
Spaghetti Stories refers to a series of greentext copypastas that recall socially awkward moments, mainly with females, that constantly end up using the protagonists getting spaghetti falling out of his pockets, r9k consists of a whole lot of these stories.
