4Chan may be a shady place where people can find all sorts of bad stuff...but people aren't selling drugs to see it. WTHR 13 in Indianapolis did an investigative report on "revenge porn" on the site and reported the term "bump" were users trading cocaine in exchange for more pictures of the subject in question.

In case you don't know, that's not true. "Bump" is a common internet term on comment based services in which people comment that word in order to keep the subject towards the top of the page. The system isn't even exclusive to 4Chan either as the term is also seen on Facebook Marketplace groups as well as apps like NextDoor. It's pretty crazy that something like this slipped through the cracks at a professional news organization...but mistakes do happen from time to time. 

Check out the report in the video below and wonder how no one caught this mistake below:
