>I don't trust tripfags, sorry.
You're stupid beyond recognition.
If I were to post a list now, what would assure you that I'm not OP or a different tripfag?
Watch the fucking video if you want a perfectly safe source, otherwise, stop being so goddamn retarded.
I should, I haven't been on /a/ since 2008.
I came back a bit before that tribes Ascend ordeal happened, but I decided to stick to /v/ after that. I do fancy coming back to /a/, though.
>coughed up blood twice, has attempted suicide twice within 5 hours
Is this satire?
>implying you didn't copypast that shit
Fuck off you pathetic tripscum
I wonder how people would have reacted if he went with saying ayy lmao as his final words like he said he would. Changed the board to /a/yy lmao.
I'm glad he didn't though, one [s4s] is enough.
>I'm the red man
>you're /sick/ if you watched the whole thing
What could of been.
I am the bone of my site
Boards are my body
And posting is my blood
I have banned over a thousand anons
Unknown to profits
Nor to donations
Have withstood great lawsuits to maintain this site
Yet my time here is now over
So as I pray
Unlimited 4chan works
Moot is the last true hero of the internet
I legitimately tried to not block ads, but they took up too much vertical space and made everything else layout like shit. Vertical space isn't exactly cheap with all this widescreen shit, especially on a laptop.
This year, on December 4th, at exactly 00:00:01 East Coast time somebody will post happy Birthday Usuka and we will know it will be him
For additional information on some of the non-self-explanatory parts (Although that was a succinct summary Jebus)
>Rei a shit
Moot mentioned he would be sad if Asuka were only into women, but accepting.
>/a/ is best board
He said it several times
>/jp/ is moot's favorite board
Also apologized for the change in culture post AWA
>/g/ got called out
Ad-block and related gripes
>The Fappening and legal issues confirmed for one reason moot is leaving
It costs him tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees.
>4chan is not a money maker
If not for the passes, they would have been in debt 16k
>/s4s/ was a mistake
He didn't expect an April fools joke to take off, but accepts it as his own making.
They don't talk much, but he appreciates how the founder has reached out and kept that board steady.
>2007 confirmed for golden age
His personal fav year, but emphasizes it's all subjective and personal.
>moot will continue to browse /a/ regularly
>"I have dated 4channers"
His longest relationship was 9 months. He's not a wizard either.
>moot encourages meetups
Really wants a "mootxico" trip
He never met her/talked to her
Indifferent to pronunciation
>moot: coughed up blood twice, has attempted suicide twice within 5 hours
This refers to a post where someone mentioned 4chan saved their lives.
>"Democracy doesn't work"
On 4chan he means.
>Moot's sexual orientation is unknown
He prefers not to answer the question in this setting.
>"Keep on truckin'"
Moot enjoys long distance drives, thinks he was built for it.
"I never asked for this"
>"I want to retire in the woods with my greyhound"
Moot thinks the way greyhound dogs are treated in America sucks. He is unironically reading Walden (but hasn't finished it yet) and now the idea appeals to him.
For real that is a succinct summary. Jebus nailed it.
Most of it is completely pointless bull. The one thing I got from listening to him is that he's severely butthurt and trying to convince himself that he isn't.
Nobody repeats that they aren't hurting that often if it's true.
You need to lurk more. A lot more.
probably more than just ads, although
as much as i hate to say it: generating a profit becomes a necessity at some point in life.
I actually fucking remembered this thread. I wondered why moot mentioning LoGH on laserdisk was so familiar.
>moot will continue to browse /a/ regularly
>he doesn't even watches anime
>will continue to browse /a/ regularly
>"We always used to joke, I mean you're here forever, I'm here forever. There was a point in time where I really hoped that I could be the last person out, you know to kinda turn off the lights. But for various reasons that seems like it wasn't going to be the case, so I started to plan this kinda retirement. But for as much as people have complained over the years I really again, I really truly tried my best, and so has the team. And I think we really did do our best given the circumstances..." -- moot
i really hope it would be the case anon
>Nobody repeats that they aren't hurting that often if it's true.
When you're repeatedly asked if you're hurting you either say yes or no in the end. And of course, he got asked that a lot seeing as he is frequently shat upon. I actually have moot's philosophy on things myself and from the way he spoke and the humor he carried I'd say he lives up to it. Furthermore it should be obvious seeing as he kept up with this shitheap for so long. You can't do that and not completely crumble if you let everything get to you. It's better to only let things really worth your time affect you emotionally. Friends, family, and rare people that you seriously hate.
If you live in New York he will go to your wedding
He stopped going to the gym and lifting because of the fappening
He has never spoken to Anita or Zoe, dislikes gawker, says 4+4chan is destined to fail
The NDA is to prevent staff from leaking the IP addresses of posters
He lives in a shit apartment
He purposely avoids streets with lots of young people to minimize how often he's recognized
Anime on all boards but recommendation threads only on /r/
His current normalfag hobbies are /o/ and /sp/ and he hopes to one day post about his innawoods cabin on /diy/
Cuckoldry is the "thinking man's fetish"
Should have drank more water, only one pee break in 8 hours
Tribute album has been removed from mediafire, it just offers me a link to amazon to buy JIBUN WOOOOOO. What was in it? Is there a link to the final version of the card, the /a/ sings Kom Susser Tod, and the /a/ says Congratulations?
>The one thing I got from listening to him is that he's severely butthurt and trying to convince himself that he isn't
I think for sure he's upset about the cuck thing, because he kept coming back to it over and over. As for 4chan as a whole he was mostly positive.
He really did care about us, you know. You don't run a site for 11 years, go to court multiple times (using your own funds), and keep coming back year after year to personally talk to your users without caring. Hell, he kept the site alive on loans and only recently made a small profit. He may have made mistakes, but on the whole I'm incredibly glad for what he did and what he stood for.
Try opening the link again. This happened to me when I tried at first too.
Anyway this is the list. Bonus tracks are komm susser todd, congratulations, and that song from that one Makoto Shinkai movie; you know the one.
he kept saying how people criticize him for everything he does, I'm pretty sure that's why he was leaving because he said it like 30 times "people will criticize how I'm peeing" "people will criticize how I'm eating"
I'm glad the end of an era is here. Maybe 4chan will not be shit again, maybe there is hope that whoever takes over will somehow fix 4chans popularity. I want to go back to the old days of there not being so many god damn people.
But I already know that won't happen.
>C/a/mping trip is imminent
He said no camping because /b/tards will draw dicks on people's foreheads and piss on them.
No NY meetups either because he doesn't want to get stabbed.
Mootxico trip maybe
It will always worry me that maybe we drove him away. He says he doesn't have any regrets and that /a/ in particular is best board, but I still wouldn't blame him if he just decided we were more trouble than we were worth and that we were far to mean to him at times. I can only hope that he knows our tsun is much, much smaller than our dere for him.
Best I could get, for whatever reason, it doesn't ffmpeg doesn't care for it.
>Really wants a "mootxico" trip
>you will never drink tequila with moot
>you will never visit Chichen Itza with moot
>you will never watch a telenovela with moot
>you will never go on a trip to mexico with moot
>you will never see a soccer game end 0-0 with moot
>you will never run away from drug cartels with moot
>you will never eat tacos from a street vendor with moot
>you will never perform El Grito on Sept. 15 with moot
>you will never sing anime OPs on those long stretches of single lane Mexican highway with moot
It hurts to live.
I think he kept mentioning the cuck thing because that's the meme of the moment that he enjoys.
Look at what he did to /pol/. It might have bothered him at first, but at this point I think it just really amuses him.
GamerGate and the Fappening are what really got to him.
Go fuck off. Moot already confirmed what we already knew, which is that /a/ (though I personally swing for /jp/) is the best board. And one of those reasons we've remained pure is because we shun IRL activities.
>When you're repeatedly asked if you're hurting you either say yes or no in the end.
Possibly, but he kept saying it. Not just in the end, but every 10 minutes.
>By the way, I'm not angry, and it amuses me that people think I am.
And then there was this regret business, where he had to go such such lengths (for the second time) to explain that he doesn't regret anything before allowing himself to answer the question, only to stop himself yet again and claim everything was good until he finally got around to mentioning something that could have gone better.
There's some serious stuff going on in his subconscious.
>The Fappening and legal issues confirmed for one reason moot is leaving
Isn't this bullshit? He was thinking of leaving far before and I'm sure he said he was pretty chill about it
He's been setting up 4chan to outlive for awhile, but the Fappening really pushed him over the edge.
It's not like he just got a phone call from Obama telling him to stop stealing people's nude photos. It was a huge mess that he had to slog through.
I don't recall hearing that. I was listening for the 8 hours but went to sleep here and there. I just thought he said it was a mess but didn't really effect him too much. Any idea on the time?
Anyone up for an /a/ sings this week?
What if moot is reading us right now?
What if he actually posted in this thread?
he has earned it after everything he went through
To be honest one of the best parts of moot was when he had to explain in court about 4chan, about newfag and all the other terms.
I think he sounded forced, like he wanted to prove himself that he was mature and not a failure. Probably because of internalized anger and the failure of Canvas and DrawQuest. I don't fucking buy his Zen facade. He seems avoidant.
I'm also worried about his marketeer and young entrepeneur mentality. While listening live to the Q&A the first thing I thought was "can this guy just not talk like he's giving a speech in a con or something for a moment?"
Thankfully he opened up in the final parts, with his bane impressions and shit, it finally felt like he was being personal and sincere.
yeh that last 1/3 was really sweet ;_;
>giving a speech in a con or something
How is that any different from what he was doing? I'm pretty sure what he was doing falls pretty firmly under "or something".
His comment about reverse-Occam's Razor seems relevant here.
I suppose you can't blame him for being so guarded against 4chan. As he pretty much said himself, no matter what he did, it was wrong. I wouldn't want to step out in front of everyone and admit that you all ground me into dust either.
I'll make sure to reply to him if I see his post.
Yeah, he sounded way too business-like, or maybe that's how he normally sounds. Maybe it was the 40k anons, and he didn't want to say anything that personal. But I think he was sincere mostly at the end.
He probably couldn't keep up his facade, as the act of actually saying goodbye approached. It is a big step after all, even if he can still lurk.
Who wants to bet he'll be back trying to retake his position within less than 2 years?
>Who wants to bet he'll be back trying to retake his position within less than 2 years?
a man can hope anon, we're still allowed to hope
It'll be hilarious in how sad it'll be, him trying to convince people that he still matters, and nobody giving a shit, forcing him to resort to rampant spamming and shitposting, avoiding bans through backdoors he himself put into the system. It will be a dirty battle fought over all the boards and it will take weeks to drive him off. He will create another chan in exile, and it will never take off. Constantly refreshing the frontpage of his dead mootchan will finally push him over the edge and drive him to suicide.
I think it's a natural adaptation from having every single word that's come out of his mouth and fingertips be infinitely twisted and manipulated into conspiracy bullshit.
He's raised this board for 11 years, took all of the burdens and hatred upon himself, and he couldn't even talk to us without his words being ripped apart and getting crucified for that infinitely distorted truth that has no basis in reality.
Imagine how uncomfortable and frustrating it is when you you try to have a conversation with someone and they don't understand what you're saying. Now multiply that feeling on a TTGL-tier scale.
was banned during the whole thing just came to say that I have a new respect for /a/ now
Also the whole Asuka thing was hilarious
the social aspect isnt so bad, mootykins could handle the bantz
it's the legal trouble and infamy that got to him
4chan made a yearly profit in the low 5 figures
Consider the legal expenses can easily stack up above that; one more "fappening" would've destroyed the site as well as him.
That sort of thing takes a toll on a man.
Just try to imagine moot as a family man still leading a motley crew of "neckbeard vikings"
>somebody finds out moot's address
>email him a 50 pound package of gay porn and dragon dildos
>his kid opens it
>daddy, what's this
Yeah I can understand him wanting some distance.
>Just try to imagine moot as a family man still leading a motley crew of "neckbeard vikings"
That's why it's so fucked up that so many of that family man's children are infinitely ungrateful, spiteful, and toxic.
I don't know, maybe he doesn't feel that way, but in my eyes it's tragic.
it's not any articular board's fault, it's just the nature of things
and those A-list celebrity leaks were a fault of a few individuals max
>the post stands for 6 hours with no replies
>suddenly, every fedora is brave
It's sad how shitty /r/ is. There's some potential for it if people ever started using it but the board is basically the "Find and fix my porn how I want it to be" board.
Ever since both those have been left out of every recap I've been getting a hallow feeling in my stomach. I just know people will conveniently "forget" it was said so they can shit up the place even more and just say "moot never said that"
