all events are intertwined. you could have posted a picture of Trump, Obama, Andrew Breitbart, Timothy McVeigh, Richard Nixon, Texas oilman Haroldson Lafayette Hunt, George Washington or 18th century fire and brimstone calvinist preacher Jonathan Edwards and your observation would be exactly as valid. the detritus of internet culture is now 'part of history'. it can no longer be dismissed as mere detritus.

This. Irreverant nihilists who got off by being assholes to everyone was already a thing when 4chan started. You can look throuh the archives of sites like Newgrounds, Something Awful, and the message boards to see a proto-Anonymous already forming. If anything, the nihilistic assholes surprised moot by overrunning his little weeb club and turning it into the Ocean of Piss.

nihilistic assholes are inherent to the capitalist system which is basically a machine designed to churn out assholes and nihilists. Libs who be like 'if everyone had just been nicer online, fascism wouldn't be a thing' have their head in the sand. muh decency and civil discourse are the last refuge of the doomed, the last refuge of those who no longer believe in anything.

Moot was a fucking idiot for not taking down /pol/. Not only because /pol/tards had been directly responsible for several deaths by the time he bailed, but /pol/ itself was actively shitting up the rest of 4chan.

he actually took down /pol/ twice: /new/ and /news/. he fucked up giving it a 3rd chance tho.

Austin Rodriguez

Moot fucked up by removing forced anonymous and by creating a captcha after he specifically swore that it would never happen. For a while the captcha was not completely bad, because there was an alternative to the Google captcha. Of course, that did not last, because moot wanted to get sheckels, sell the site, and go to Mootxico.

Leo Myers
Leo Myers

He took it down, but he went to some conference and said a bunch of shit about censorship. Someone was like "shut up fag you shut down /new/ so you can't talk". Then he decided to put it back up after that verbal beat down.

Cameron Gonzalez

In reality if 4chan was never created, simply another site of similar construction would of popped up to do the same. The internet in those days was like the fucking Cambrian explosion, websites were popping up, evolving, and dying, at an exponential rate, everyone and their mother owned a website.

Matthew Ortiz
Matthew Ortiz

Moot was far from the only dipshit technocrat with infantile fantasies about how the internet should be a bastion of free speech where everyone can share their opinions and not have to worry about third parties moderating discourse.

But of course what actually happened was that the people who linked up and started a concentrated effort to spread propaganda everywhere they went were the ones who took over the site. His "muh free speech" hands off approach gave the fascists exactly the kind of environment they wanted. 4chan is a literal propaganda machine where white teenagers are radicalized by fascists. Moot bailed out like the coward fuck he is once he realized what a shitshow he had created.

The exact same thing is happening on reddit and youtube ATM. Technocrats are a cancer.

technocratic neoliberal censorship is in theory apolitical. It speaks about 'harrasment' 'trolls' and 'extremism' but in practice it targets all threats to the reigning order. and there is no bigger threat to the current reigning order than the radical left. liberal standards of decency and civic discourse are not worth fighting for, the sooner they are gone, the better.

Evan Roberts

like it or not, /pol/ was not going to just roll over and die. They'd just move elsewhere.
Difference is he would then have tens of thousands of people on his ass making his life miserable.

It's surprises me how he kept his sanity all this time.
He was anonymous for years, but after that it surprises me that for the amount of hate he generated, he was never targeted (afaik) by a site that pushed many people to suicide just by bullying.

Hunter Rivera

Not only that, I meant that from old /b/ breaking Jesi Slaughter, to /pol/ spending months fucking with Shia LeBeef, it surprises me there was no organized attempt on his wellbeing by random assblasted faggots.

A friend of mine got hacked and harrased by some retard wanting an unimportant domain he holds.
On the other hand, moot dealt with the peole whose smear campaign against a presidential candidate got the attention of the whole nation. Who made a cartoon frog be catalogued as a hate symbol just by overshitposting it all over the net.

For a guy hated by half of the internet hate machine, m00t has it very smooth.

Liam Sanders

I miss the lack of centralization. Instead of having one or two sites on a topic, both of which are owned by a major corp, you had maybe ten or twelve (in the case of flash games and forums, literally hundreds) at least. It's a level of decentralization, information sharing and free discussion that we'll never get back. Most of all, I miss Google actually being a fucking search engine and not a restricted walled garden to only show you a small selection of things.

Parker Howard

The internet is already trash, /pol/ has already poisoned any hobbyist discussion on any imageboard that isn't dead, and I don't think it's ever going to go away, just like netouyo have been shitting the japanese internet for decades, and the internet at large feels like it keeps shrinking and shrinking.
And of course there is shit like the attacks on net neutrality and DMCA cancer

Moot laughs at us mere mortals. He is easily one of the most influential individuals this century thus far, and most people don't even know who he is. He wasn't elected, he didn't do what people wanted he did what he wanted, and wherever he wanted. Moot is literally god.

When was the last time you hung out with a bunch of other fans in their shitty jscript chat client on planetanime.com?
When was the last time you had to email a teenager you don't know to explain how his super slick html webpage is a pile of fucking cancer?
When was the last time you didn't have to go to a huge corporate website to get what you needed?

liberal technocratic censorship will always target the left, even at the expense of the far right. you won't get anywhere by appeal to daddy google's and the fed's better qualities, these people are your enemies. this is class war, this isn't about apolitical standards of 'decency' that never really existed.

Anthony Parker

Makes you think.

Benjamin Walker

technocrats do want censorship, though. based around vague criteria of 'harassment' 'toxic discourse' 'trolling'. it's not about stoping le nazi for them but about neutralising threats to the status quo. twitter cares more about people swearing at blue checkmarks than about nazi propaganda. It is really stupid to trust these people and assume they have our best interests in mind. the left has to take matters into its own hands, create its own propaganda campaigns transform itself if necessary.

Parker Gray
Parker Gray

people being rude in the internet causes fascism you guise!

we have to see things in the light of materialism and broader cultural trends. Even if the whole internet had been an hyper moderated walled garden curated by corporations and liberal technocrats, the alt right would still be a thing. why do people become 'radicalised'? fascism is not a magical incurable disease that spreads via the internet but a concrete historical phenomenon. you can't put the genie back in the bottle and return to a curated discussion of the latest 'diverse' tv shows and videogames. fascism can only be opposed by the radical left, by breaking the cycle of established identities and promoting a radical alternative.

moot literally KILLED /pol/. After reducing the post timer and inviting the entire site to collectively shit on /pol/, the board was spammed so much that it literally died. When he left, there was no /pol/ anymore. It was only after he left that the board revitalized. But on his last day, /pol/ was basically what /qa/ is today.

The fact was that users felt that without a news and politics board there was no way to get users to stop posting up the rest of the site with news and politics. So he made "containment" boards which were literally meant to contain politics. The problem is that it wasn't containment in the sense of Chernobyl. It was just a container in a literal sense. There was no way to nuke politics from 4chan, either, so I don't know what he was supposed to differently.

Angel Allen

4chan would've been a lot better if moot was actually hands-off instead of selectively intervening against any random shit he didn't like.

Josiah Reed

I first found 4chan during a moot hiatus, and I had so much fun.
Months later moot posts an apology for not having much of a presence on the site lately, then things go downhill.
I perma-quit shortly after "Row Row Fight the Powah". One of several times moot intentionally flooded the site with /b/tards and forced a shitty meme.
Nostalgia is hell of thing because actually moot was an insufferable faggot from start to finish.
