Kiwi Farms, the Web’s Biggest Community of Stalkers

https://theoutline.com/post/5672/you-don-t-need-to-talk-about-qanon
The shitty, stomach-turning parts of the internet are no longer siloed away on message boards like 4chan and Kiwi Farms; they’re on Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, and in the real world.

https://www.dailydot.com/irl/4chan-trap-discord-trans-panic/
Her claims began unraveling through a niche internet community called Kiwifarms, a community with the stated purpose of mocking “lolcows” i.e. anyone on the internet deemed to be mockable, usually because the forum users perceive them to have some form of mental illness or sexual deviance.

https://www.mediamatters.org/blog/2018/12/23/how-hoax-lgbtq-community-embracing-pedophiles-went-viral/221394
The Daily Caller’s piece was also shared on far-right anonymous message board Kiwi Farms, which regularly leads harassment campaigns, including one that led to the suicide of a transgender woman. There were nearly 300 posts discussing the piece in Kiwi Farms’ thread. There were also hundreds of comments in a Reddit thread about The Daily Caller’s piece, further demonstrating that these forums can gin up misinformation campaigns and escalate them through right-wing media validators -- and that hoaxes continue to grow in the right-wing echo chamber, including back on the message boards.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/fruzsinaeordogh/2018/04/08/on-demonetization-and-the-youtube-shooter/
A smattering of comments from the various Internet trash peanut galleries (KiwiFarms, 4chan, YouTube comments, etc) about the shooter include: “Better than Sam Hyde,” “New queen of /pol/,” “This is the best video on YouTube,” “A Goddess for the ages,” and most relevant: “She lived defending animals, and she died defending free speech.” Any attempts to remove content related to the YouTube shooter only make online miscreants spread her content further as a kind of middle finger to YouTube proper. A “they may have ‘censored’ her while she was alive but they cannot censor her in death” kind of mentality.

James Damore
https://www.wired.com/story/the-dirty-war-over-diversity-inside-google/
More than a dozen pages of personal information about another employee were posted to Kiwi Farms, which New York has called “the web’s biggest community of stalkers.”

https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2018/01/28/fake-news-wired-magazine-presents-googles-racist-anti-conservative-harassers-victims-smears-breitbart/
In addition, the piece also repeats some demonstrably false claims without any attempt to fact-check them. For example, the piece reports that material regarding Fong-Jones appeared on the web forum Kiwi Farms following the publication of James Damore’s memo calling for more viewpoint diversity at the company, and subsequent reporting by Breitbart News and Vox Popoli.

However, a cursory search of the Kiwi Farms forums reveals that Fong-Jones had been targeted by the site’s users since at least February 2017—five months before Damore’s memo was written, and long before any coverage of Fong-Jones appeared in the alternative media.


Brianna Wu (and GamerGate???)
https://www.intomore.com/impact/brianna-wu-isnt-finished
Wu, an openly queer video game developer, gained national fame following the Gamergate controversy. Her outspoken defense of women in the gaming industry attracted the attention of extremist trolls on websites like Kiwi Farms and 4chan.

(Only by reference of a Tweet.)

https://www.engadget.com/2018/07/13/gamergate-s-subreddit-temporarily-shuts-down-because-toxicity/
"KiA became infested with racism and sexism... and other ism's (though many ism's are not real). GG forums were created on KiwiFarms and 8chan as a result," David-me posted. "This was the best and worst thing. The monster was now a virus. We banned links to, and then mention of certain links and topics. Now we became the enemy."

The theory that Connors was a hoax started gaining serious traction over the weekend on a message board called Kiwi Farms (you can read some of that here, if you really want to go deep on this thing).


Chloe Sagal
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5876485/Brilliant-tortured-31-year-old-transgender-artist-set-fire.html
Members of Kiwi Farms, whose participants 'specialize in harassing people they perceive as being mentally ill or sexually deviant in some way,' began targeting Sagal and revealed that the money was actually being raised for her gender surgery.

https://variety.com/2018/gaming/news/chloe-sagal-death-1202858068/
They also said she was the target of a persistent online bullying campaign by Kiwi Farms

https://www.dailydot.com/irl/chloe-sagal-suicide-cyberbullying-harassment/
On the Kiwi Farms thread that linked to news of her death, Sagal is misgendered over and over again and she’s mocked for her death and for the way she committed suicide.

https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/bullied-trans-game-developer-dies-after-setting-herself-on-fire/
Kiwi Farms linked to her death. On the thread there was no regret, only misgendering and mocking.

https://www.oregonlive.com/portland/2018/06/woman_who_set_self_on_fire_in.html
A friend who chose not to give his name, fearing repercussions from Kiwi Farms, said her livelihood and mental stability were destroyed by the attacks.

https://lenta.ru/news/2018/06/26/sagal/
В 2013 году трансгендер стала мишенью пользователей имиджборда Kiwi Farms — сообщества, посвященного обсуждению «эксцентричных людей, которые добровольно выставляют себя дураками». Кроме того, на сайте нередко собираются те, кто преследует и запугивает жертв в сети.

On Kiwi Farms, a forum that describes itself as a place for “gossip and exploitation of the mentally handicapped for amusement purposes,” Atchison frequently posted commemorations of mass shooters. Two days before his own school shooting, under his username “Fuck You,” Atchison posted an explicit sexual reply endorsing Lindsay Kantha Souvannarath, a failed mass shooter from Halifax, Nova Scotia. (Atchison used a photo of Kiwi Farms administrator Josh Moon as his profile picture for Steam.)

https://www.newyorker.com/tech/annals-of-technology/the-neo-nazis-of-the-daily-stormer-wander-the-digital-wilderness
This wasn’t the first controversial Web site that Dias had abetted. Last year, on the Daily Kos, Margaret Pless called him out for hosting an infamous cyberbullying hub called Kiwi Farms, which, as she noted in a separate article for New York, “specializes in harassing people they perceive as being mentally ill or sexually deviant in some way.” The site has been associated with at least one target’s suicide. Pless told me that she had attempted to contact Dias multiple times without receiving a response. Later, though, Kiwi Farms apparently switched providers, quietly vacating Frantech’s servers.

https://www.daily-times.com/story/news/crime/2018/04/17/aztec-high-school-shooting-investigation-william-atchison/513013002/
A day before the shooting he posted on the online community Kiwi Farms the words "praise be to Allah."

KIWI Farms has screenshots of Isaacson's most violent and sexually deviant tweets -- which go way beyond what most people would consider normal.

The Internet sleuths at the site Kiwi Farms, where she had at one time been an active member, further tracked Souvanarrath’s activities and ascertained that she had also been an active member at a forum devoted to fascist ideology called Iron March, which is apparently operated by a man named Alexander Slavros.

https://www.splcenter.org/hatewatch/2018/04/18/class-conflict-dividing-america’s-race-warriors
As the alt-right attempted to regain its pre-Charlottesville momentum, several leaders engaged in a belated PR campaign while vicious flame wars raged on the The Right Stuff’s 504um, Gab.ai and the KiwiFarms.com. These debates and online battles were framed around the question of “optics,” tactics and messaging.

https://www.splcenter.org/hatewatch/2018/02/08/evidence-new-mexico-school-shooter’s-involvement-racist-alt-right-overwhelming
Atchison also allegedly frequented the Daily Stormer, the racist alt-right’s most notorious website, in addition to other known online communities favored by the alt-right, such as EncyclopediaDramatica, Kiwi Farms, 4chan and various videogame forums.

Wow nice to a positive shout out from the SPLC:biggrin:

I found this on medium.com, and it appears to be a staff article, perhaps? Medium is still a joke but this one is surprisingly in-depth and well written (although choke-full of disinformation as you can see by the snippet).

https://medium.com/s/darkish-web/hunting-for-trolls-on-an-anonymous-forum-7b721d3bd199
If you are unfortunate enough to become one of Kiwi Farms’ “lolcows,” you can expect to have every move you’ve made online screencapped and archived and exhaustively commented upon. These trolls, or “k-farmers,” will insinuate themselves into your social media life and find ways to trigger you into producing tard cum — that is, reactions they find amusing.

Speaking of Medium, this one is far less respectable but has been seen in the Trans Lifeline thread (and is, in a way, a direct response to it). Thought I might include it as well.

https://medium.com/@Translifeline/debunking-dispelling-myths-a-response-to-a-recent-tumblr-article-51ba607a4619
Frustrated that their attacks did not dissuade us from offering life-saving support to trans people who were suicidal, Kiwifarms supporters created a twitter bot to defame Trans Lifeline and spread lies. Kiwifarms is being investigated by the federal government as a hate group in connection with this incident and a number of other alleged malicious crimes.

A translation of the lenta.ru quote, if anyone's wondering what do all those potato runes mean.
lenta.ru said:
In 2013 the transgender became a target for the users of the imageboard Kiwi Farms - a community built around discussion of "Eccentric people willingly making a fool of themselves". Besides that, the site is often a gathering place for those who stalk and intimidate victims on the Internet.
Hilariously enough at the end of the article they advertise their Telegram channel with 'More dark and peculiar news in our Telegram channel, follow it!'. The article is in general toned critically of the Farms.

Will add as I find them:

https://slate.com/technology/2018/02/what-is-cryptojacking-the-bitcoin-and-monero-mining-process-that-steals-your-computing-power-explained.html

Only one site, the notorious Kiwi Farms forum, gave me the option to turn the miner on or off.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2018/01/26/google-diversity-culture-war/1071107001/

What's more, they say they've been subjected to doxing on 4Chan and Kiwi Farms after screenshots were included in the 161-page lawsuit Damore filed in January alleging Google discriminates against whites, conservatives and men.

https://www.theringer.com/pop-culture/2018/3/9/17097390/celebrity-photoshop-fail-in-2018

Swaths of Rose’s “hater followers,” as BuzzFeed once called them, gather on online forums like PULL, Tumblr, lolcow, and Kiwi Farms to compare notes on the evolution of her and other online celebrities’ Photoshopping—sometimes called “shooping”—decisions.

[break]

(Last year New York called Kiwi Farms, a site that’s similar to PULL, “the web’s biggest community of stalkers.”) But there’s also a shared sense of CSIesque determination: companionship in the search for truth.

https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/katienotopoulos/silicone-genital-injection-death-tank-hafertepen

On a 75-page-long message-board thread on the internet drama hub Kiwi Farms, would-be sleuths dug up the court filings made by Hafertepen against the BuzzFeed News reporter, and even tracked down what they believe was a 911 call to the Hafertepen building on the date listed on Tank’s death certificate as the accident date.

https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2016/04/27/why-are-anti-abuse-activists-zoe-quinn-and-randi-harper-trying-to-protect-anonymous-trolls/

It’s entirely possible that the abusers who went after Owens came from 4chan’s /pol/ board, Kiwi Farms, or any of the other anonymous communities with a reputation for mass-trolling campaigns, But, for Owens, the timing of the campaign pointed to a different culprit:

https://www.spieletipps.de/n_36252/

Der gesamte Fall stellt sich mittlerweile als hochgradig unübersichtlich dar – stetig brodeln neue Gerüchte hoch, die die Kontroverse zusätzlich befeuern: Laut eines Users des "Kiwi Farms"-Fourms soll Alison Rapp nun sogar eine Vergangenheit im Rotlichtmilieu aufweisen und als Prostituierte tätig gewesen sein.

Elle devait quitter Seattle, où elle vit aux États-Unis, pour se rendre en Suède, après avoir fait face à une série de menaces de mort publiées sur le site transphobe Kiwi Farms.

http://archive.li/Tc8Mw

But the group that did a ridiculous amount of investigative legwork into Rapp’s alleged illicit activities was not part of Gamergate at all, but from a little known forum site called Kiwi Farms. Launched in 2013, the site is devoted to making fun of people the users refer to as “Lolcows.” Lolcows are any person, usually not a public figure, who draws negative attention to themselves on the Internet in an amusing way, hence Alison Rapp. Users of Kiwi Farms have no agenda other than to dig up more information on active social media users and laugh about it. In fact, they find prominent Gamergaters as amusing as their radical feminist enemies.

Some of the users on Kiwi Farms would make great investigative journalists or opposition researchers if they spent their time productively.

The real problem with Kiwi Farms is that unlike Gamergate, they have no stated mission. They exist only to watch the world burn



Here's a bunch of foreign Chloe Sagal shit that mentions Kiwi Farms:

Guess, they don't know about "47%", like any other progressive media.

“Make no mistake, this was an intentional action by the State Department to withhold recognizing my gender,” says Askini, who was eventually granted a temporary two-year passport that allowed her to travel from her Seattle home to Sweden. The activist and executive director of Gender Justice Leagueneeded to leave Seattle, she says, after a series of death threats posted on the anti-trans website Kiwi Farms, as well as threats from local alt-right groups in the Pacific Northwest. She’d had her most recent passport for 10 years, but it was up for renewal.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.them.us/story/trans-women-state-department-passports/amp

Those death threats didn’t actually exist. Gee, how did something like that make it past what must have been an arduous fact-checking process?

Never mind the non existent death threats, since when are we anti-trans?
