Kf doesn't do anything. Literally the main rule here is to not touch the po.op. We're an aggregation, commentary, and shitposting site. We've kept up info when it might've been taken down otherwise but that's it. Like half the cows were doing stuff out in the open under their real names in the first place, and the other half left a pretty easy papertrail.
KF is virtually crowdsourced internet news with crowdsourced curation and peer analysis. This website is a better information source than 90% of the "news" websites out there that have paid ad's. And blows wikipedia out of the water when it comes to covering e-celeb persons of interest, since wikipedia makes sure only its fans and PR people curate their wiki article.
I wonder how many people who produce content actually get leads from kiwifarms, ED, and the like, because trying to actually properly document something is actually quite hard in this day in age, with websites being 90% opinion, wikipedia being a PC-friendly reference source for Buzzfeed, Salon, and advocate groups. I'm finding more often I'm getting information that is a google hit from an archive.md page or something similar, since the first rule these days is to scrub your internet footprint if you want to hide your past.
