Today marks the one year anniversary of moot's retirement. Love him or hate him, we should all take time now to reflect on his life, and his influence on the internet, as well as the real world.

Where were you when moot was kill?
What was your favorite moot moment?
How do you guys think 4chan's been holding up since?

Pay your respects to Moot, the most generous and wonderful CuckNiggerJew we never knew.

4chan got so shitty that the fucking admin jumped ship.

Makes me chuckle every time I think about it. People are just raping 4chan's corpse at this point.

Somebody has the "card" we made moot.

I obviously didn't read all of it, but one thing that stuck out in particular was "you gave me a place to belong".

Nobody actually liked moot. He was a cuck who intentionally shit up the site through inaction and lied to the users about what he wanted the site to be.

He was a worthless human being and I'm glad he's gone. Hiro is a much better admin that moot ever was.

Try 9 champ. I know you're fresh off the boat from Reddit and trying to fit in, but if you actually knew what 4chan was like more than 6 months ago you'd know how shit moot was.

I miss him, I'm thankful for his efforts.
I remember listening through the entire q&a and taking part in the threads like it all happened just yesterday.
This site is a part of me and always will be, even if it falls to utter shit before it crumbles apart.

Should we bring back some music from all those threads a year ago? To who ever posted this; thanks for the rain.

I can't remember very much that happened more than a year ago, it all fades together. At last I'm free to remember moot as the legendary faggot who made all 4chan in his own image, instead of that one asshole who did all these things that I hated.

I hope he's having fun out there wherever he is.

England
I recently got kicked back to NY because my visa expired before they could renew it
I've been in hell ever since
>What was your favorite moot moment?
I can't decide, might have to go with when he posted a shoddy drawing of Asuka
>How do you guys think 4chan's been holding up since?
Honestly, it doesn't feel like it did before
I came here in '09 but I learned about a bunch of previous happenings by lurking (wow, what a concept)
It just doesn't feel like the "gateway to the dark side of the internet" or whatever anymore, it seems everyone's obsessed with le reddit boogeyman but doesn't know /why/ we hate reddit
It's still holding up pretty good but I'm worried about where we'll all go when it closes for good

why hasn't he posted? today was supposed to be the day he came back

>How do you guys think 4chan's been holding up since?

As of 2016, 4chan is diluted heavily with obnoxious memers who try to fit in by posting just as they see in their screencaps from /r/4chan. Giving no space for actual quality content.
4chan is more or less dead.

I hope moot is happy with whatever he's doing right now, though. His departure inspired me to try browsing other communities or maybe just go outside.
>>
Do you guys think it was true what he said about still lurking and posting among us as anon?

Or is it like that thing when a girl tells you you'll still be friends.
>>
>>418107
moot posts here often, he's usually the one sucking mod cock.
>>
>>417396
Moot was one of us. Can't say that about the head of any other community like this. He generally Kelly his hands of, didn't try to shill us out or force his political views on us the way places like Reddit do to their users
>>
>>417165
>4chan got so shitty that the fucking admin jumped ship.
4chan got so shitty precisely because of m00t being a fucking shitty admin.

>>417168
>you gave me a place to belong
Yeah, he gave all the scum who came rolling in during 2007 and 2008 a place to fester in all the while killing most of the creative and enjoyable parts of the site.
Fuck anyone who legitimately thinks he was a positive influence on the site and fuck the post-2007 sycophantic /a/utists who keep sucking his dick for years.

>>417178
See above. You are part of the problem.
>>417189
He failed to do that. Failed in a spectacular manner.

>>417497
>I'm thankful for his efforts
He was famously apathetic and lazy. The fuck are you on about?
>>
>>418524
>Moot was one of us.
No he wasn't and he never was. He was a goon who wanted to have the ability to in a position of power over a place for discussion and left SA because he didn't get his way there and wasn't able to have free reign over the anime thread.

>Can't say that about the head of any other community like this
Distanced, arrogant, aloof, doesn't listen to the voice of the posters, ignores problems, etc. All of these traits are rather common for heads of communities.

>didn't try to shill us out or force his political views on us the way places like Reddit do to their users
Are you fucking retarded? Yes, he fucking did and most famously did so very recently by becoming personally involved in the censorship of gamergate on /v/.

Goddamnit newfag, shut the fuck up and stop pretending like you even begin to understand this site.
>>
Damn, I remember the days when mods would mass permaban everyone in a thread just because one guy decided to shitpost in it or simply for shit's and giggles.

The endless stream of petty mass permabans and the fact that you couldn't view the site when you were banned back then really crippled the sites traffic between 2008 and 2012 which was worsened by the rise of reddit.

I'm convinced the only reason moot finally gave in and gave ponies their own board was for the sake of site traffic and ad revenue. That combined with the fact that during 2012 he sent his mods on a mass "crusade" against every major proxy site in an attempt to ban as many proxies from them as possible only for him to realize most of the pony trolls simply had to reset their router.
>>
snacks > moot

site became garbage after snacks left for good

prove me wrong
>>
>>418537
Sounds like someone has spent too much time on /v/ and /qa/

> censorship of gamergate
Oh, wait, you are just a stupid fucking GGnigger who can't accept the fact your stupid activist campaign didn't belong the site. Fuck off.
>>
>>418529
>>418537
Jesus Christ, if this site has been giving you this much grief for 9 years, why the fuck do you still bother coming here?
Obviously Moot did something right if he was able to keep angsty bastards like you hooked for so long.
>>
>>418585
>the days when mods would mass permaban everyone
Holy shit this.

I was scared to post at all from 2007 until about 2012 just because I feared the moderators so much.
I didn't want to lose my daily lurking privileges over something as silly as making a little post.

For me, the nail on the coffin was when I no longer felt this fear.
When I found myself comfortable making regular posts, I knew part of the magic had died here.

Has moot done anything productive since he left 4chan?

I would only consider taking a break from this site if he didn't just waste another year like the rest of us.
>>
>>420320
Does he need to do anything productive? Considering drawquest's "success," it's likely that 4chan will be the greatest achievement moot ever made.
