moot quits

Christopher „moot“ Poole hat anscheinend keinen Bock mehr auf 4Chan und hört auf. Ich vermute mal, dass der Mann ganz einfach keine Lust mehr darauf hat, als Arschloch-Chef zu arbeiten. Er schreibt das natürlich nicht explizit, aber dass moot neuerdings ein, sagen wir mal, ambivalentes Verhältnis zu seinem Trollhaufen hat, war spätestens mit dem Ban der Gamergoaters offensichtlich. Und 12 Jahre 4chan sind echt genug. Good for him.

today I'm retiring as 4chan's administrator. From a user's perspective, nothing should change. A few senior volunteers—including 4chan's lead developer, managing moderator, and server administrator—have stepped up to ensure a smooth transition over the coming weeks.

I'll need time away to decompress and reflect, but I look forward to one day returning to 4chan as its Admin Emeritus or just another Anonymous, and also writing more about my experience running 4chan on my personal blog. The journey has been marked by highs and lows, surprises and disappointments, but ultimately immense satisfaction. I'm humbled to have had the privilege of both founding and presiding over what is easily one of the greatest communities to ever grace the Web. It was truly an honor to serve as 4chan's founding administrator, and I look forward to seeing what the next decade holds for the site.

On to the next chapter,
