Tonight we'll discuss the internet's favourite bad boy, 4chan. The site you all hate to love but love to hate, you all know what I'm talking about; the 4chan. 4chan has recently been all over the news with the suicide attempts and successes of it's users. We'll discuss how 4chan influences pop culture and how it's use of mob mentality can be dangerous.

Recently, a young man in Ontario was persuaded by the 4channers to try and commit suicide. This is a serious matter and not something to be taken lightly because of the implications at hand. The message board on 4chan known as "random" has been involved with many cyberattacks on critical government institutions; what should be done? Do you agree with law enforcement that sites like 4chan should be heavily monitered and shut down? 

We'll discuss this and more tonight with our panel which will include; journalists and academics. It's an open forum program and as always, calls will be taken.
