Why m00t left 4chan

Christopher „m00t“ Poole hat mit dem Stone über seinen Ausstieg bei 4chan („The dark heart of the internet“, New York Times) gesprochen. TL;DR: 1. Money, 2. Gamergate/The Fappening, 3. „I was a link in a chain and if that link was broken, the entire chain would fall apart.“ Der Mann hat schlicht keinen Bock mehr auf immer psychotischere Trolls und angekündigt, drei neue anonyme Admins einzusetzen (hoffentlich alle drei Frauen, das darauf folgende Drama wäre sicherlich ganz großes Kino). Ich wette mal auf das Ende von 4chan innerhalb von 2 Jahren, wahrscheinlich früher.

Part of his motivation was a question that 4channers had been asking for years: "What happens to 4chan if you were to die?" Poole would deadpan that since his mom was his next of kin, "I guess you're going to be stuck with my mother as your new overlord."
