Culture How 8chan Was Born — and Became the Worst Place on the Internet -

How did he even get to the Philippines and get settled?
I remember when he moved but I don't know the exact details. I'm not really to familiar with their visa process and requirements but I assume it isn't to hard there are a lot of Americans in the Philippines lot of retirees, veterans, etc. If he pulls in a stable income monthly he might been able to get a residency visa that way least that is what some countries have.

I have a theory, one of the reasons he left for the Philippines was better access to healthcare so when he got there the docs probably put him on some sort of steroid or something else for the pain and a side effect might effect metabolism. That could end up being counter productive like he already has fragile bones more weight on his body probably wouldn't do his bones any favors.
He's going to swell up like Violet in Wonka and then they can just roll him everywhere without a wheelchair.

Here's Judaswheels so mad he's accusing Watkins of doing shit he hadn't even done yet at the time:

The founder of the fringe internet message board 8chan has a message for lawmakers and their staff before the website’s current owner, Jim Watkins, is deposed Thursday on Capitol Hill: “He’ll lie through his teeth.”

I don't know if I should feel relieved or offended that WE'RE not the worst place on the internet.

Seriously though, I keep thinking of that parable of The Boy and Rattlesnake: "you knew what I was when you picked me up." What do you think will happen when you create a haven for scum like that?

Starts out supporting eugenics and free speech, years later finds Christ, starts browsing /leftypol/ and calls for a less free internet. Is becoming the ultimate fag the fate of chan admins? Not like I should be surprised...
There's a lot more to it than that. This was never about morality. This was solely about resentment. Resentment that Jim took things over and ran it better than he ever could.

Resentment that Jim shut down the /hebe/ board after- in the absence of Hotwheels- it came to his attention, when Freddie had allowed it to operate without interference hosting 'child modelling' pictures for years.

I have local WARC and other offside archives of this in case Pedowheels tries to get this deleted from the Wayback Machine.
