Can Moot explain this? We are on your side you know...
I dont think this is real. Maybe because I dont want to. But its highly disturbing. I understand that getting death threats is very scary, more so when coupled with the cracked thing, but moot being willing to go that far is shocking.
Moot (that faggot), Administrators, Moderators, and janitors are actively banning people and deleting threads for showing any kind of opposition towards the Gamergate scandal. Gamergate scandal is an unrelated phenomenon that happened outside of 4chan. Everyone here, especially /v/, were talking about it and doing their normal babble whenever big things happen on the internet. Then censorship took place. Moot allegedly fired about half of the 4chan staff because they opposed the censorship.
This started more than a month ago, and since then moot found mods/admins that willingly went on with his plan to censor 4chan. OP's pic lets us in on his reasoning behind it all.
In my opinion, M00t shouldn't have been such a little pussy. I mean, there's only so much they can do to him. The site will come back if brought down, those emails can be ignored etc etc... We should fucking fight back
We are all used to 4chan being a certain way, and when it changes its unnerving for most of us. Especially when there are no repercussions for us when we do things the old way but still get told that the old way is now unacceptable. I think thats where most of these gamergate and antiSJW people are coming from. Thats how I feel. Even if it will draw a lot of community hate I think that moot should open up a discussion with us to explain whats really going on.
But who would that even be? Advertisers avoid this place like a cancerous wound (which it is). Moot loses money running this place every year. Does that sound like something any sane person would buy without completely rebuilding it from the ground up to be profitable?
fake as fuck.
>I went to see Anita speak at XOXO, and she was absolutely lovely. Behind the scenes, I got to have a word with her. We hit it off perfect, and we're now friends through online communication.
No one talks like this in reality, much less IRC. It reads like a fucking movie script.
moot breaks sentences up into multiple lines, no punctuation. Anyone who's chatted with him knows this.
This place is a total shitfest and has been for some time. The reality is that 4chan is not a destination for most people. It's just a pitstop. Most people eventually age out of this place once they're done being young and angry and move on to better communities. That's the way it's been for years.
4chan's only real validity is in its format which less and less people care about. We have a whole generation of people coming up behind us who care very little about privacy. Being able to discuss anything, including taboo subjects, becomes less important as less and less people are interesting in those subjects (let's face it, tumblr philosophy has taken over).
Basically, this place is rapidly losing its market. There's little new blood coming in and the older members eventually grow up and move on as well. All that is left is the truly socially defunct individuals who just can't find a home anywhere else.
And that's not a market anyone cares to cater to anyway. I would be very surprised if 4chan limped along for another 5 years. It doesn't surprise me if moot wants to clean it up and sell it at all.
i can't shake a weird feeling though, i can't help but feel like moot is ashamed at what this place has become. specifically /b/
its shady as fuck, i feel like this anon posting all the loli is basically distracting all the tard weaboo's from the subject too which is also shady
I don't really see this being real
Only read half of it but firstly, why the fuck would cracked write an "article" on this?
>They're also going to basically get feminists to hack in and take down my site
This doesn't sound like something moot would say, whatsoever. He generally seems to know his shit so wouldn't take claims like this seriously, or even use the words "hack in".
tumblr philosophy has indeed fucking taken over. we totally lost that beef but the tards on here are too stupid to admit it.
remember when moot wrote up that mgs4 copypasta replacing the change of war with /b/? maybe he was trying to tell us something
fuck man, this shit means a lot too me. it's like living with an alcoholic family you fucking hate to death but they're still family.
i understand why moot, or even any sane person would want to wipe the floor with this community and be done with, but fuck man
shit just sucks, i love my /b/ros, especially those that have left
