The split pretty much opened a gap to newfags and cancer. You lose Touhou, you gain random image dumps. You lose SUBS FUKKEN WHERE, you get 'should I learn Japanese?'. You can just feel it, can't you? The faggotry of /c/ falls into the void of /a/. With the wave going out to /jp/, the current brought along with it any other weeaboo.
tl;dr moot is the Lavos of /a/.
