incels.net is one of two surviving r/incels ban evasions which emerged directly after the Battle of Incelistan. It was created in late 2017 as a PHPbb backup board to r/incels by Vcelguy.

A previous incels.net existed in 2016, owned by a separate, and unknown, person as shown in an April 2016 Webarchive. Apparently it used CentOS or RHEL OS.[1] It is unknown who owned the domain at that time, but the 2017+ version was and is administered by Vcelguy.

Incels.net generally ranks the highest on Google out of all the incel forums.

Rivalry with incels.me/co/is[edit]

The domain 'incels.org' had been abuse reported briefly after Sergeantincel from incels.me first purchased the domain, taking the domain away from Sergeantincel. Sergeantincel considered the domain stolen when Vcelguy managed to purchase the domain after it got dropped from Sergeantincel's registrar.

The rivalry wasn't just due to domains however. Both Master and Sergeantincel from incels.me complained that Vcelguy was making his own forum seperate from incels.me at all. Vcelguy accused Serge of being too new to the r/incels community to start a forum, and both Serge and Master accused Vcelguy of trying to start an "incel civil war". Serge complained that incels.org was "legally stolen" from him by Vcelguy.

The other forum that split from r/incels was incels.co. People on incels.co accuse incels.net of running crypto mining software on site user's computer, which doesn't seem accurate at least in 2022. They also accuse vcelguy of being Russian and married, which may not be accurate.[2] People from incels.net accuse incels.co of being entitled to the 'incel' name and making up accusations of domain theft. It is not known which side is correct about their list of accusations of each other.

Both may be somewhat right about certain things tbh.

In 2020, the admin of incels.net, Vcelguy, had accused incels.co (now incels.is) of illegally DDoSing their forum.[3] He had also placed layer 7 DDoS CAPTCHA protection on and off on his forum for years.

History[edit]

Move to Xenforo[edit]

During its period of inactivity, one of its only active users was Lordoftheincels, who was trying to make the forum normie friendly.

After years of almost no activity, incels.net changed forum software from PHPbb to Xenforo, after which they experienced a major spike in traffic and active members. Today, they serve somewhat as refugee camp from those who left or were banned from incels.co, although this is not always the case.

User move to Blackpill.club[edit]

Sometime in August–September 2020, the dominant users of incels.net got upset at some banning sprees that Vcelguy made, and then set up shop at blackpill.club.

IPs[edit]

In early 2021, incels.net shared an IP space with sites associated with or hosted by the US based, website hosting company Vanwatech. For example, it shared an IP space with incels.is.[4]
