If there's one thing less useful than 4chan, which is like Digg, except for 13-year old boys, it's the Washington Post coverage of its creator. If moot, "the secretive Internet celebrity" behind 4chan, had not created the site, someone else would have put a few days work into coding a site for posting images of video games, Maxim models, hardcore pornography with Maxim models, Warhammer 40K, and WWE stars.
You can find something marginally more useful at the bottom of the article: the Post's implementation of Evri, which lets you follow bizarre relationships among topics. Let's see, coverage of 4chan leads to an article about Sarah Palin's hacked e-mail account, which leads you to Ashley Judd's denunciations of Sarah Palin, which lead you to Defenders of Wildlife's denunciations of Sarah Palin, which leads you back to Sarah Palin, at which point time and space collapse into one another.
And, if the singularity for this cosmic catastrophe were to center on Sarah Palin's cleavage, someone will have made an animated GIF of the event and posted it on 4chan.
