Was just about to post a thread about this.

He did an interview about this for techcrunch, in which he sounds like a managementspeak faggot a lot of the time.

http://techcrunch.com/2015/01/21/farewell-sheriff/

I never forgave him for shutting down the text boards.

But I didn't want him gone. I doubt anyone else will treat the place the same.

Does anyone think that his success is based on anything but luck? I can't imagine he's qualified for anything else on that scale. He might have some normal qualifications but I doubt he's got the qualifications to get into anything on the scale he has now, unless some company employ him as a gimmick. Seems a dumb move but best of luck to him.

He's run a startup or two aside from 4chan and yeah, he really does crank it up in that interview. Presumably he's trying to come across as some kind of dynamic, forward-thinking internet entrepreneur, in the hope of picking up a job somewhere interesting, but I'm not sure that "founded and ran one of the most reviled and controversial websites on the internet for over a decade" looks all that great on a CV. Anyway, calling it a "PhD in large-scale community management" is just embarrassing. You don't have a PhD, moot.

I've always felt sorry for Moot. He has spent years attempting to defend the yeastiest cunts on the internet in a fruitless show of solidarity, because they simply didn't appreciate it and someone actually set fire to his garden. That is simply not cricket.

This is not surprising in the slightest. I'm only surprised that it took him this long, but he explains what he has been up to in his resignation speech.

The irony is, none of the people that complained about him could run a piss up in a brewery and the plethora of chans that will spring up in the wake of this wont last past their first few years because the only thing they have in common is their hatred of Moot.

Please explain 8chan, then. It's run by someone who actually has employable skills.

It's the board most users who got sick of the increasingly inept administration switched to.

The second moot kowtowed to the establishment by removing fappening images, a lot of people moved. I don't really give a fuck about gamergate or all that stuff but the joint was clearly going down the pan.

, especially given that 8chan boards are self-rumning (though admins retain global mod rights to enforce the global rules). In my opinion they're far better run than the halfchan equivalents.

I wonder if this is a prelude to him doing a Pistorius on his girlfriend as revenge for putting horns on his head.

I don't think anyone could argue that 4chan was ever somewhere that was out of the "pan". It was born there and found it niche there and now that it is attempting to lift itself out of it people are upset. Which is fine, I get it, but Moot has put up with so much shit from the user base over the years that he was bound to break eventually.

It's a money sink he gets nothing out of but grief.

Moot raised $3.5m in venture capital money for a failed startup in 2011. I expect he's now earning 5 figures per day as a consultant - a lot of companies would like a piece of his social media mojo, or a better understanding of the neckbeard weirdos who keep DDoSing their servers.

4chan itself has never made much money, because mainstream advertisers won't go anywhere near it. According to this 2012 article, 4chan had no full-time employees and was barely covering the server bills:

I've always thought the weekend threads were a bad idea, because it tanked the amount of posts on /b/. Usually, if someone had an interesting weekend or something worth discussing happened to them then we'd have a nice thread discussing it because someone would make a thread, but now people post stuff in the weekend thread and it barely gets a response because it gets lost among the chatter, so lots of potentially interesting topics for threads before now fall through the cracks. An alternative name for the weekend thread would be blog thread, because quite often that is what it amounts to.

Who am I to argue though? Other people like it, I just think the board would be more active without them.

>basic research

The concept of a double entendre, and the implications therein, has clearly sailed well over this lads head.

I agree. They do sort of vacuum everything up.

I also think /news/ was a mistake. We have /iq/ for threads like >>/iq/51767 and then if it wasn't board specific (usually something involving politics, science or technology) then it'd be fine on /b/.

Was there a demand for /news/? I can't remember any more. All I remember is the mods forcing everyone to post news threads on /news/, without actually supporting /news/ by putting it or star in the board list.

/b/ had become a kind of /news/ at one point, with a majority of threads starting with a news link. I think that was the impetus.

Not really, unless you count the same person/small group of people constantly whining that news threads shouldn't be on /b/ as popular demand. I bet it was that knobhead, who always managed to get in one of the first replies to a thread and would launch an unwarranted attack on the OP, who was behind it.

Those threads would often digress into tangential discussion and even go off course entirely and make beautiful thready music.

I didn't really see the problem with /b/ being full of news threads. I've always thought of it as pub talk. Nothing to in depth about any one subject, but a little bit of everything.

Yes. It was and is a sensible idea. Having a thread for individual news stories on a 'random' board pushed other content to the bottom.

Those threads created discussion that wasn't really constrained by the content of the OP, the OP was simply a catalyst for discussion. /news/ doesn't feel like that at all though. Also, the amount of news threads /b/ got didn't translate over to /news/ as people just stopped making them for the most part.

No argument from me. On the imageboards I've known it's always seemed that splitting discussion into more boards ends up with an overall reduction in posts (as an early example here, /g/ originally encompassed all tech/science threads but got split off into /e/ and /lab/, and all felt quieter for it). I don't think it matters as much with /*/ around.

>Those threads would often digress into tangential discussion and even go off course entirely and make beautiful thready music
We're in /g/ right now, so I guess the tradition is alive.

Are /emo/ and /iq/ the only boards readily identifiable on /*/sfw/? I know you can tell when it's a /b/ thread from the post number, but the other day I was looking for >>/boo/3587 and it took me a while to click it wasn't on /news/.

I think you might be referring to me. At least, I was one of them but unfortunately I now work 12 hours a day and simply don't have the time for acquiring and dumping more porn. I may be able to resume in a couple of months time.

Moot is doing an audio Q&A. It's been quite interesting so far, he comes across as a very reasonable individual.

Either that, or the DDOS attacks and hosting issues that the site experienced earlier this month caused it to move to a new address.

Pic related has always summed up my sentiments on 4chan in general. I've been lurking around there off and on since 2005 and while I have experienced some truly epic lulz I kind of welcome this simply because i think we all need to move on.

I'm a bit late to the party here and the thread has kinda moved on but I agree. /b/ was never good but I remember when it was a hell of a lot better than it is. I've had good times on there but like everywhere it has its moment in the sun and slowly fades away as the population gravitates towards 'normal'.

It'll be interesting to see what, if anything, takes its place. It was, in its time, the true arsehole of the internet and one of the last bastions of complete wild-west style freedom on the cleartext internet.

In these strange days of people going to jail for writing vaguely offensive shit on twitter the old /b/ of 7-8 years ago with its constant stream-of-conscious style output of offensive, disgusting and downright disturbing content seems like something of a curio to me now. I doubt we'll see its like again, for better or worse.
