Back in the web 1.0 days of 1999-2003, the internet produced a slurry of prototypical "shock sites" - some for porn, others for violence, and still others for community-driven circlejerking over niché content. Over time, a select few sprang forth into prominence: examples including Ogrish, eFukt, and Ebaumsworld.
Among the very first was the now-defunct MuchoSucko.com
- a sort of Reddit but for the unemployed, the ill, the blue collar, and the 4chan rejects. Once a hive of creativity with a strong sense of community, MuchoSucko's cup did floweth over with original content, larger than life personalities, and its very own subculture.
However, the hands of time tore it apart as site ownership all but abandoned the project, volunteer staff walked away, and new traffic was slowed to a trickle thanks in large part to virulent malware that appeared in the form of pop-under advertisements. In 2017, one brave faggot and a handful of Mucho's most dedicated veterans launched project Noah's Arc - and created MuchoZucko.com
- a web 1.0 shock site built to last.
