4chan: The web you can't get caught in

Three threats in two days to three of our universities.  

The first one at Otago University was made on an internet message board called "4chan" where users can chat and post messages anonymously.

It's the rebel website of the internet and one step removed from the dark web.

Posts are all done without anyone finding out who you are.
