Is the spoopy conspiracy about 4chan mods getting replaced by SJWs during GonadGate true?
4chan was under the spotlight at that point in time; not primarily for GG if you remember, but the fappening. GG was swept under the rug to cut off another shitstorm from kicking up right as 4chan was in the middle of another, more serious shitstorm that had legal ramifications.
It probably wasn't the optimal way to solve the issue, but it doesn't indicate malevolence so much as a combination of desperation and mild incompetence.
Yes it is true but we brave warriors are still fighting the good fight here for the free speech.
Moot put out an announcement spinning like mad while confirming the leaks before they dropped. They're real.
I don't think it means SJW mods - most of them were just yes-men and turbofaggots afraid of controversy, and while there were some real examples of incompetence (like the guy who thought DFC = pedophile, before he was demoted) it's not like it was reddit or tumblr. That said, while I was sad about him leaving at the time, I think Hiro's done a lot better than moot in his last years.
