True & Honest Fan
- Jul 20, 2019
Furries and drama go hand-in-hand. In a fandom that's so drama-prone, a minor incident can quickly be blown out of proportion, and a major crime can often be swept under the rug with furries shrugging it off as "drama". At times, it can be tough to determine who are the truly bad people, so I'm honestly shocked this guy didn't have a thread until now.
Matthew Soltys (better known by his fursonas Nitro Rooski, Cyder The Donkey, and currently Spark the Dalmatian) from Red Lion, Pennsylvania would like you to believe that the dozens (if not hundreds) of furries who cut ties with him are lying about him, his behavior, and why everyone hates him. However, a quick glance at how he handles himself both online and IRL shows that Matthew has left a fairly destructive path in his wake, trying his best to drag down everyone who gave him the benefit of the doubt along the way. While his infamy was somewhat known among the PA furries for a few years, it finally hit critical mass in 2020 with a massive string of fraudulent activity.
DISCLAIMER FOR FURRIES LURKING THIS THREAD:
Hello there! If you're not a regular of this forum, odds are good that you found this thread because it popped up in a search, or you were linked to it by a friend. Since this thread has gotten a fair amount of traffic from people who don't fully understand KF's atmosphere, I'd like to give anyone stumbling upon this some quick reminders, especially since Matthew is aware of this thread and has tried his hardest to discredit all the information within. The quick version: do not give Matthew your time or money. Matthew is a manipulative liar with an extensive and well-documented history of fraud and bullying, and any evidence he may present to claim otherwise is provably wrong. For the long version, please feel free to keep reading.
Matthew's most common tactic to try and disprove this thread is to claim that Kiwi Farms cannot be considered a reliable source and only exists to bully people with fake evidence. This is completely ignoring that fact that when you see an archive link mentioned in this thread (or KF in general), that is an accurate snapshot of that weblink, and it was recorded at a time when said website was still live (for example, if a Twitter link is archived, it means that tweet was indeed real, even if it might have been deleted later). While it's possible to fake a screenshot, archive links are impossible to fake, and they’re hosted on a service completely independent of this forum. And in the rare moment where we put up incorrect/inaccurate information, we make an effort to remove/amend it as needed.
In addition, while some of Matthew's personal information is visible in this thread, DO NOT CONTACT MATTHEW OR HIS FRIENDS/ASSOCIATES. We will not endorse harassing thread subjects, and people who do it anyways are often subjected to being banned, doxed, and (in particularly egregious cases) earned KF threads of their own. We're not some top secret hacktivist hangout for carrying out 1337 hacker ops to get people in trouble, we're a website where the users document drama and laugh at crazy people online. If you use the information in this thread to try to contact him anyways and get caught, we will laugh at you, dig up your personal information, and most likely create a thread about how much of a dumb fuck you are.
To get the basics out of the way, Matthew is a furry in his mid-20s who had been somewhat well-known in Pennsylvania and New Jersey’s furry scene for a couple of years. Some of the local furries have frequently described Matthew as a bit of a celebrity; not because he was particularly well-liked, but because he showed up to local fur meets with enough frequency that nearly every furry active in the area had personally encountered him at least once in some form. Outside of the furry fandom, he works at a casino and runs "DJMSOL Entertainment" (sometimes referred to as "Nitro Production Company"), a side business of DJ/AV work that got him a few local gigs.
Former friends have also claimed that Matthew was constantly broke and asking for more money (while at the same time buying expensive things and living far outside of the means that his work provided). While precise evidence to back this up is lacking, it should be pointed out that Matthew has been successfully sued by his landlords for unpaid rent at least four times; once in March 2018, and three more times in 2021. It goes without saying that it takes a lot to justify unpaid rent escalating to a court case.
It is critical to establish that Matthew's skills with money are lacking before going any further, as this comes into play several times during this OP. This won’t be the last time you’ll hear about him mishandling money.
Capital City Fur Con (March 2019-June 2020)
What made Matthew as infamous as he is now was the drama and fallout involving the convention he founded (and made himself chairman of), Capital City Fur Con. Initially announced to the public in March 2019, the first and only CCFC was held in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania in January 2020, and has since come to be referred to as "Dashcon 2.0" and "Unnamed Harrisburg Convention 2020". By sheer luck, it also has the unique distinction of being one of the only 2020 furry conventions that weren't canceled due to COVID-19. CCFC has already been discussed heavily in the Furry Convention Drama thread, and it eventually spawned a massive CCFC OP. If you have some time to spare, I’d strongly encourage reading that OP, but here are the cliff’s notes:
Matthew wanted to host his own furry convention, but he lacked the experience, knowledge, or resources. He decided to proceed anyway, hired a few of his friends as staff, then spent most of 2019 pestering furries (primarily ones with a lot of followers on Twitter) to show up to his convention. This testimony from an acquaintance also alleges that Matthew stole money from World Wild Fur Camp (a furry event that Matthew was a confirmed volunteer at) in order to help fund CCFC.
CCFC's planning was borderline nonexistent. Matthew insisted on having control over everything, wouldn’t communicate with his staff or volunteers, and managed to piss off the few people who actually had convention experience to the point that they all quit. Despite all this, he was able to fill in some of the staffing gaps with random people he met at fur meets, and CCFC actually happened as promised in early 2020, with roughly 400 furries showing up to it.
Matthew never paid the hotel a deposit that was agreed upon in their contract, and on the first night of the convention, the hotel demanded payment or they’d shut everything down. First, Matthew tried to pressure his staff member Tripp to hand over thousands from his college savings to help cover the unpaid deposit. Due to transfer limits at Tripp's bank (as well as Tripp's parents refusing to let him use the money for non-college expenses), nothing came from this, but that didn't stop Matthew from continuing to harass Tripp for money for the rest of the convention. Here's Tripp's take on what happened:
Despite this setback, Matthew managed to avert disaster. He convinced one of his friends to put their personal credit cards onto the convention's billing accounts, and he also managed to suppress news about the potential shutdown from attendees before it became public knowledge.
Surprisingly, the rest of the convention managed to proceed mostly as planned. Most of the furries I spoke to that attended CCFC said they generally enjoyed themselves. Matthew spent most of CCFC casually schmoozing furries and prancing around in his fursuit, did little to no management, and left the inexperienced staff to fend for themselves. At CCFC's closing ceremonies, he announced he was immediately stepping down as chairman and gave the role to a DJ who played at one of the dances, then told everyone that any inquiries post-convention should be sent to the new chairman, not him.
Matthew promised the guests of honor and his staff that he would cover their rooms, only for all of them to find out (upon checking out of the hotel) that they were now stuck paying their entire bill. People who pre-registered for CCFC (but were unable to make it) were denied refunds. Most of the people who paid for "Sponsorship" registration never received the merchandise they were promised. Matthew’s friend that put his card down to save CCFC's shutdown was stuck with a bill for $12,000. The new chairman quit ten days after CCFC ended because he realized Matthew was trying to shift the blame of CCFC's mismanagement over to him. Matthew ignored all questions about being compensated.
Matthew had also partnered CCFC with a charity (ALS Association) and con-goers had raised somewhere around $4,000-$5,000 (USD) for ALS at the event. As Matthew was running out of ways to handle the unpaid bills before him, he eventually decided that the best option at this point was to use the charity money to pay down some of the debt. He was repeatedly told by staff and friends that this was a horrendous idea, but he did it anyway in order to save himself from having to declare bankruptcy, then ran back into hiding and tried to pass the mess onto his remaining staff. Essentially, CCFC ran at a giant financial loss, and rather than be transparent about what happened, Matthew committed charity fraud in order to soften the debt he racked up, then threw everyone else under the bus.
Since a lot of this wasn't publicly known at the time, Matthew managed to avoid drawing more attention to himself for a few months. That all changed on June 11th, 2020, when his former staff Tripp made a callout post about Matthew and demanded proof that the charity money was properly donated. Tripp's callout gained a lot of traction online very quickly, and Matthew responded a few hours later by tweeting that CCFC would be ending. He also tweeted a screenshot of a $217 donation receipt (made by someone else who donated independently during CCFC) as "proof" that he donated (which I have partially censored due to it doxing the donor).
(Archive of Tripp's callout) (CCFC's response archive)
When people started pointing out how incredibly suspicious it was that CCFC announced its closure mere hours after a callout (as well as the fact he doxed someone completely unrelated via the receipt), Matthew nuked most of CCFC's social media (as well as his own) and went radio silent for a few months.
Post CCFC: (June 2020-Present)A more sympathetic reader might see the above and view Matthew as a misguided person who wanted to throw an event but got in way over his head. However, Matthew has since proven the direct opposite. Over the course of the next few months, he managed to eradicate any sympathy people might have had for him, refusing to take any accountability for his actions, (unsuccessfully) trying to absolve himself of any blame, blaming CCFC's failure entirely on the overworked and inexperienced staff he had hired.
Unsurprisingly, most furries did not want to be associated with someone who willingly mishandled thousands of dollars meant for charity. News about CCFC’s mismanagement spread quickly through the Pennsylvania furry scene, and Matthew quickly found himself universally shunned and despised by most of his former friends and associates. While most events for 2020 were on indefinite hiatus due to COVID-19, most fur meets and conventions in PA preemptively banned him from coming back (once they were allowed to safely start running again).
Matthew's dating life and #TeamNitro
(Team Nitro, January 2021. All of the people in this photo have since cut ties with Matthew.)
Before moving on to his failed attempts to get furries to like him again, it's worth taking a look at Matthew's love life and a few of his known associates. Between each of his failed schemes, there seems to be a repeating cycle of predatory dating behavior from Matthew, which consists of him cruising furry dating groups and asking unsuspecting furries out, usually ending poorly for whomever he suckered in. It's best summarized by this chart I made:
Authors' note: Most of Matthew's exes have expressed genuine remorse over getting involved with him and cut ties completely. For that reason, I'm going to keep personally identifying information about most of his exes minimal.
Matthew managed to go through at least eight romantic relationships in 2020 (and another six in 2021), and those are just ones we know about through public posts (so the actual number could be much higher). In all of his previously known relationships, Matthew will intentionally target furries who have just received their first fursuit. Once he established contact, he would love-bomb them with attention and gifts in order to speed up the relationship, all the while using this as an opportunity to gaslight them into believing that any furries who disapproved of their relationship were only doing it because they're just jealous and/or intolerant.
Most of these relationships came to an abrupt end after the furry would discover the truth about Matthew, though, in a few situations, Matthew would end the relationship himself for petty reasons. In addition, there are at least two occasions where he (or a friend of his) registered sockpuppets in order to spam his exes dox across random sites in a poor attempt to get other furries to harass them for him (while some of these sockpuppets are still online and are considered abandoned accounts, we will not be posting them here).
As to why Matthew explicitly seeks out new fursuiters (and only new fursuits): More often than not, a furry just getting their first suit meant they were a newcomer to Pennsylvania's furry scene, thus they'd be much less likely to know anything about Matthew's awful reputation. It's also worth pointing out that every ex has photos of the two of them wearing their suits together, all of his close personal associates are fursuiters, and every furry Matthew pestered to come to CCFC was a fursuiter.
Despite Matthew's reputation, he has still managed to maintain a small cult of personality around him of people who support him unquestionably. They frequently appear on each other's social media, liking/sharing each other's posts and white-knighting each other. Essentially, think of it as a smaller version of the rat-king social structure prevalent in some other online communities. The group's stability is extremely lacking, if only because we've had to re-edit the #TeamNitro section several times due to Matthew's inability to maintain healthy relationships.
Currently active #TeamNitro members
Max (actual name: David Earl Moss) is a personal friend of Matthew who worked as CCFC's head of events, and also became Matthew's roommate somewhere between February-June 2020. During that time, he managed to become Matthew's biggest and most contentious white knight. Max was probably best known for leaking a fake charity donation receipt immediately after the CCFC shutdown, and he was also listed as staff in the ACFC incident (both mentioned later in this OP). After CCFC shut down in June 2020, Max made his public online presence very minimal to avoid drawing more attention to himself, but he since used his lack of visibility as an excuse to aggressively harass and threaten people without repercussions.
For some reason, Matthew gave Max access to some of his social media/messaging accounts, which resulted in multiple incidents where Max said incredibly regrettable things on Matthew's behalf. In the most infamous of these incidents, Max harassed and sent threats to a minor who was critical of Matthew, insisting Matthew did nothing wrong and all evidence saying otherwise is faked. However, it's very easy to determine when Max is making posts, as he has a distinctive writing style full of run-on sentences that's very different from posts Matthew makes on his own.
In August 2021, Max attempted to come out of hiding and re-integrate with the local furry scene by making some of his accounts public again. The re-appearance was short-lived, however, as his attempts to apologize for past behavior were not perceived as genuine, and when confronted about the far more incriminating incidents he did not address at all, he responded by pretending they never happened and rambled about unrelated topics. Despite this poor reception, Max has kept his social media public, but when criticized, he will randomly alternate between deleting his posts, locking down his accounts, and occasionally sockpuppet as "Tezi The African Wild Dog" to throw off onlookers.
Near the end of 2021, Matthew was forcibly evicted from the townhouse they shared, with Matthew opting not to bring Max with him to the new place. While Max was able to find a new living arrangement, it would appear the two of them are still in regular contact as of this writing.
Inactive Twitter (Archive) Current Twitter
Monty The Wolf
Monty's social media presence is surprisingly barren, as his only known accounts have little to no activity. His Instagram mysteriously stopped updating shortly after meeting Matthew, and his Twitter has thousands of retweets of random furry porn but not a single post he made himself.
In early 2022, one of Monty's relatives contacted the Farms, expressing concern for Monty's well-being after discovering this thread. According to them, Monty had cut off contact with most of his immediate family shortly after meeting Matthew and refused to elaborate as to why. It is also confirmed that Monty reads this thread; Monty's mother allegedly sent him a link to this thread and Monty responded by blocking her outright.
Monty's relative politely requested we refrain from posting his real name or photos of him out of fursuit. I figured having sex with Matthew was punishment enough.

Briggs the Fox (aka Embry)
Briggs is a fursuiter who briefly dated Matthew in mid-2020, with the relationship later ending for unknown reasons. Despite the fact they had broken up (with Briggs later getting involved with a different fursuiter), Matthew had convinced Briggs to be the "chairman" for the short-lived "Amish Country Fur Con" incident mentioned later in this OP, causing Briggs to be subjected to intense questioning from other furries who were asking him why he was working for a fraudulent event.
After ACFC ended unceremoniously, it was previously believed that Briggs had learned associating with Matthew was an awful idea and cut contact, as he has said several times on social media. However, leaked information from early to mid-2022 has shown that not only was that a massive lie, but Briggs might possibly be one of the most active members of Matthew's friend circle. Unlike Max, Briggs is at least smart enough to make his association as private as possible, with little to no public posts showing how involved he still is with Matthew.
Toni Marie Marshal (Mom)
Matthew's mother deserves a special mention due to exhibiting similar lolcow tendencies, as well as enabling Matthew's destructive behavior.
Toni has met most of Matthew's exes. She seems to see nothing wrong with the fact that Matthew burns through so many relationships in a short period of time, and has been seen happily interacting and friending several of them on services like Facebook. When Matthew was served an eviction notice over attempting to groom teenagers in his home, Toni decided the best course of action would be to call the teenagers and verbally harass them, threatening to get them arrested for accepting Matthew's invitation.
Former #TeamNitro membersAll of the people under this spoiler were prominent friends/white knights at one point but have since cut contact, usually due to how poorly Matthew treated them. This is also by no means a complete list, but just a few of the more notable cases from 2021.
Blue Heart Fox
Blue Heart was Matthew's current romantic relationship when this thread was first created in January 2021. Blue is probably best known for an incident where he stupidly implicated Matthew even further in wrongdoing, resulting in Matthew immediately dumping Blue, then throwing out a bunch of Blue's dox in the hopes that people would harass Blue instead of him. Out of concern for Blue being actively harassed by Matthew, that information will not be posted here.
A few days following this incident, someone claiming to be Blue registered for Kiwi Farms and showed up in this very thread, claiming that Matthew indeed broke up with him, and Blue was not responsible for a separate (but unrelated) incident that was blamed on him. However, "Blue" immediately logged out after posting this (and before anyone could respond), so it's currently unknown if this was the real Blue or someone attempting to ween. "Blue's" statements lined up with some previously posted information in the thread, but the true identity of the poster was ultimately inconclusive.
Blue Heart was a small lolcow in their own right, but not nearly to the same level as Matthew. His social media was full of photos of himself fursuiting in stores and restaurants (in fursuiting culture/etiquette, wearing your fursuit inside a store without asking permission first is considered a BIG no-no). In addition, when someone showed Blue hard evidence that Matthew was cheating on them and sending unsolicited dick pics to random furries, Blue responded that they watched Matthew send the dick pics so that made it okay, completely ignoring Matthew's unfaithfulness and sexual harassment. It's also worth pointing out that based on the above photos, Blue had free access to Matthew's alcohol when they were dating, which is concerning as he was underage (20) at the time.
Kyle the Wolf
Kyle was another friend/white knight of Matthew. He's been documented going out of his way to actively harass furries who have spoken negatively about Matthew and CCFC's mismanagement (sometimes replying to tweets that were months old) and was witnessed heavily white-knighting Matthew in the ACFC incident. Kyle created the #TeamNitro hashtag, which he prominently featured on some of his social media bios and earned him justified ridicule. Even though Matthew was usually in a relationship of some kind, that didn't stop Kyle from commissioning artists to make suggestive art of their fursonas together.
In June 2021, Kyle has stated (via commenting on a YouTube video about Matthew's controversies) that he regrets getting to know Matthew. While Kyle has yet to publicly acknowledge if the two of them still share any contact or not, it would appear to be the latter, as Kyle has wiped most of his social media of any mention of Matthew.
Kenaii The Husky
Kenaii was one of the 400-ish furries that attended CCFC, but he had not actually met Matthew in any meaningful capacity until sometime in October 2020, a few months after the event's shutdown. Despite being well aware of the fallout over the convention, he had befriended Matthew under a promise that Matthew was working to improve himself and turn over a new leaf.
Kenaii had frequently been a cameraman for Matthew's photos and videos. While he had little involvement in most of Matthew's 2020/2021 schemes, he was actively complicit, making little attempt to dissuade Matthew. He also let Matthew guest host in some of his music/DJ streams, usually referring to Matthew by his lesser-known "Cyder" alias to avoid backlash.
In June 2021, Kenaii released an "apology" video when he became aware of the negative pushback he was getting for keeping Matthew as a friend. The video was heavily mocked, as he ignored why people were criticizing him and instead spent the video literally crying over losing followers online. Following the (very justified) ridicule, he has since deleted the apology (as well as several other videos that featured Matthew) and put up a revised (and much better-received) written apology, finally realizing that Matthew was not going to change or improve.
The "Underage Harem"In June 2021, it was brought to light that Matthew had been illegally subletting multiple underage furries within his own home. While the specific details are unknown, it was confirmed via a third party there were at least three minors living there at the time, with plans to bring in a fourth had anyone not stepped in. It was also confirmed that at least one of the minors came from a difficult and/or abusive family who kicked them out, suggesting that Matthew was intentionally preying on teenagers in tough living situations to ensure they would become reliant on him.
Due to the fact that subletting to anyone (regardless of age) was a blatant violation of his renter's agreement, this resulted in Matthew being served an eviction notice once this information became public. It is currently unknown where the other minors are now and/or how much money he took from them.
Dear Furries, PLEASE take me back!In the months following CCFC’s shutdown, Matthew has made multiple attempts to reinsert himself back into a group of furries that want nothing to do with him. So far, every single attempt has managed to backfire massively and only increase the animosity towards him.
Note: a lot of these incidents were previously discussed in greater detail in other threads. As such, I’ll give brief summaries of each incident and then link to appropriate Kiwi Farms posts if you want to read further.
The “donation receipt” saga (June 2020)(read more)
Someone gets in contact with Max and presses him on what happened to CCFC’s charity money. Max then claims it was actually just donated a few minutes ago and sent a photograph of the receipt to prove it. It was almost immediately determined to be a forgery, as someone instead googled “ALS receipt”, photoshopped some of the text, printed it out, and took a photo. As of now, it’s not clear if the forgery was Matthew’s idea or Max’s, but it certainly didn’t do Matthew any favors regardless.
The "Twitter Resurgence" saga (September 2020)(read more)
Matthew re-emerged on Twitter with a brand new account, mostly posting fursuit photos and pretending that nothing ever happened. Other furries eventually noticed that he was back on Twitter and started harassing him, which caused him to tweet this angry post before he locked the account, name-dropping the furry he was dating and bringing unwanted attention to them in the process.
The “My Cousin's Donkey Fursuit” saga (October 2020):(read more) (featured in Act 4 of the CCFC OP)
Matthew stumbled upon a donkey fursuit auction on The Dealers Den (think eBay but for furries) that was sitting at about $5,000 at the time. Matthew contacted the seller and offered to pay $10,000 on the condition that they settle the payment offsite and ship him the suit first. He then admitted to a friend in private that he didn’t have anywhere close to that money, but he was hoping that with a new character, he could sneak back into venues he had been banned from.
He was so confident he was going to scam his way into a new fursuit that he immediately set up multiple social media accounts for his new character, “Cyder the Donkey”, then started using Cyder to contact ex-friends who had previously cut ties with him. Furries caught on that something fishy was going on almost immediately, and it probably didn’t help that he thought it was a good idea to send a selfie to someone:
Fortunately, he didn’t get away with it. When someone realized that Cyder was Matthew, they decided to warn the fursuit's owner that Matthew was a known scammer, which resulted in the owner deciding to cancel the sale entirely. This prompted Matthew to reactivate the official CCFC Twitter account and have a bizarre meltdown. Matthew claimed numerous ridiculous things in the process. Among others:
-The guy trying to buy the donkey fursuit was actually his cousin and totally not him.
-His cousin also looks exactly like Matthew, lives in the same house as Matthew, was dating someone who looks exactly like Matthew’s (at the time) boyfriend, and communicated with the fursuit seller through Matthew’s locked NRooski account (from the last incident) instead of just making his own.
-Tripp was a liar who ruined Matthew's reputation with his callout, and nothing in the callout was true.
-CCFC only failed because his staff sucked, he did everything right, and none of it was his fault.
-The only good staff members were the AV staff (aka Matthew) and the head of events (aka his roommate Max).
-Everyone got compensated and if they say otherwise, they’re lying.
-He didn't misappropriate the $4,000 worth of charity funds, he used it to pay back the hotel.
Not even furries were stupid enough to believe any of this. Tripp responded mockingly, which only made Matthew even angrier. He flew into an incoherent rage which only caused more people to notice the situation and start mocking him.
Matthew continued to rage and argue with furries for a few hours before he eventually got off Twitter. Although he never got the donkey suit, he has continued to use the “Cyder” alias on social media, making sockpuppets in a poor attempt to sneak into places he is no longer welcome.
The “ACFC” saga (November 2020):(read more) (ACFC Telegram summary)
In late October/early November, several social media pages and a website popped up for an “Amish Country Fur Con”, planning to tentatively run sometime in 2022 in Lancaster, PA. The official website set off several red flags almost immediately.
Among other issues, it was discovered that all of ACFC's promotional photos were stolen off Google, the convention’s logo was a stolen stock image, the convention's hotel was the same one Matthew had bragged about getting an A/V gig at a few months prior, and all of the listed staff were acquaintances of Matthew at some point (including Briggs and Max). ACFC’s Code of Conduct was also blatantly plagiarized from the ones featured on the Anthrocon and Furrydelphia websites, and bizarrely, one line in it accidentally referred to the event as CCFC.
An official ACFC Telegram chat was linked on the website, which prompted some furries to join it to figure out what was going on. Ultimately, it was eventually revealed to be another scheme run by Matthew (with Kyle and Max white-knighting him heavily through sockpuppets). Matthew had pressured Briggs into being the "chairman" of this event and relaying messages for him, which resulted in Briggs spending several hours being grilled by furries who were pointing out very obvious questions he could not answer (eg “what experience do you have?” and “where is the contract for the hotel you claim to have a contract with?”). Briggs eventually relented, admitted the entire thing was Matthew’s idea, then nuked the chat.
Matthew reacted to ACFC's failure by putting his fursuit up for auction the next day, stating in the description that he was “leaving the fandom”. The auction ultimately ended with zero bids, presumably because nobody wanted to risk getting scammed and/or give Matthew more money.
The “Cease and Desist” saga (January 2021):(read more)
Blue Heart Fox (Matthew's boyfriend at the time) decided to actively go out of their way to make an extremely shitty callout post regarding Tripp's previous callout on Matthew (despite the fact that the callout was seven months old at this point). Tripp laughed it off and in the ensuing argument that followed, challenged Blue to prove that anything he said about Matthew was wrong.
Blue eventually declares that they have proof that exonerates Matthew, and tweets a photograph of a Cease and Desists letter Matthew was sent in late December. The letter states that CCFC was never registered as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization (something that most conventions are registered as for tax and charity reasons) and Matthew did not have any authorization to legally raise charity money under the CCFC name. If he continues to claim otherwise, he will face legal action.
When Blue Heart eventually realized how royally they fucked up by implicating Matthew even further in charity fraud, they nuked their Twitter account, but not before the incident caught the attention of furry lawyer Boozy Badger.
Matthew responded to Blue's stupidity by dumping Blue on the spot, followed by Matthew (or a friend of his) attempting some gay-ops where they impersonated Blue and spammed several furry chats, doxing Blue in the process. Presumably, this was done in an attempt to take the heat off of himself and put it on Blue instead.
The "Impostor Patch" saga (October 2020-Present)(read more) (part 2)
The TRUE and HONEST Patch has provided this list of their social media accounts. Any "Patch" accounts not on this list are most likely Matthew's sockpuppets.
In late February, it was brought to light that almost immediately after failing to scam the donkey fursuit, Matthew had contacted another fursuit owner and expressed interest in their "Patch the Dalmatian" fursuit they recently put up for sale. Matthew then agreed to a payment plan, but after missing the deadline to pay for the suit fully (even after Matthew was given multiple deadline extensions), the suit's owner canceled the deal entirely due to nonpayment, then refunded Matthew the money he had sent so far. The suit was then sold to someone else (who paid for the entire suit upfront). When Matthew found this out, he spent months harassing and impersonating the new owner in petty revenge, reposting old photos of the suit and claiming he owned it. When the new Patch received the suit, they promptly called Matthew out for his behavior.
After Matthew was called out, he disappeared from the public eye for three months, and he attempted to reinvent himself yet again, this time as "Spark the Dalmatian". Around this time, Matthew was also sued by his landlord for thousands of dollars (due to outright ignoring his rent for several months). Instead of paying his landlord, Matthew decided to instead spend thousands on commissioning a Dalmatian fursuit that bears a very close resemblance to Patch, putting himself even deeper into debt in the process.
Note: Matthew's "Spark the Dalmatian" should NOT be confused with another infamous Spark Dalmatian, as while they have the same name, they are two entirely different people.
What makes this situation especially concerning is that Matthew explicitly went out of his way to commission the same fursuit maker as the original Patch suit, which happens to be Don't Hug Cacti. For those unaware, DHC's owner has been mired in controversy and callouts for a while now (though that's a drama better explained elsewhere). Despite Matthew being fully aware of this (and despite multiple people contacting DHC and asking them to not make the suit), DHC made it anyways.
The original "Patch the Dalmatian" suit Matthew has repeatedly impersonated.
Matthew's "Spark the Dalmatian" suit. It bears a close resemblance to Patch.
Side note: Every single fursuit DHC has ever made is photographed, watermarked, and put in a gallery on their website (which is then mirrored to their other social media). The Spark photos are the only ones in their galley that are lacking a watermark (and weren't put on their other social media), suggesting that even DHC thought Matthew was too much of a liability to endorse.
As of now, Matthew is still actively bullying and hate-stalking Patch, mostly by befriending furries unfamiliar with his infamy in order to feed them a fake narrative of events. It is also very important to note that Matthew's claims against Patch have changed repeatedly since the incident became public knowledge. Matthew has alternated between claiming that Patch is actually a knockoff of Spark (despite hard evidence that the Patch suit has existed for years prior), not being sent the suit after paying (despite the original owner providing evidence they returned Matthew's money after the deal was canceled) as well as far more outlandish claims, such as Patch being involved in a plot to steal Matthew's money and/or have sex with him. Matthew has also been caught multiple times registering Patch sockpuppets to send harassing messages to others, presumably hoping that if he tries hard enough, he can bully Patch off the internet and LARP as Patch unopposed.
The "Underage Harem and Eviction" Saga (June 2021-December 2021)(read more)
A friend of Tripp's makes a few tweets criticizing Matthew's long history of belligerent behavior, and they are then contacted by a woman who claims that Matthew had been trying to convince her teenage son to move in with him so he could illegally sublet his home to them. She also reveals there are already other underage boys living there as well. The woman would later go on to send her husband down to physically confront Matthew over this. In the process, the husband escorts two other teenagers from the home and reports all of this to Matthew's landlord.
The revelation that Matthew had (at least) three underage boys sublet his home (in addition to being repeatedly sued by his landlord for unpaid rent) resulted in Matthew being served an eviction notice by police in late July. He was finally kicked out of his home for good near the end of 2021, but somehow able to convince another furry to let him move in with them.
The "Furry Geosocial Exile" Saga (2022)(read more)
For years, Matthew was known to be fairly active on Howlr (a furry location-based app similar to Tinder), preying on newer furries who didn't know his history and deleting/remaking his accounts once he started to catch enough flak for this behavior. He often got away with this due to Howlr's lack of proper moderation. This continued until Barq (a similar geosocial app) began making traction among furries in early 2022. Matthew attempted to continue this behavior on Barq, only to get promptly banned after being reported by Patch (with the official moderation reason from Barq being "impersonation").

Shortly after Matthew's Barq ban, he attempted to return to Howlr creeping, only for Howlr to announce they were terminating their service at the end of February. This effectively left Matthew without easy access to unaware furries to prey on. Matthew would go to make a second Barq account a few weeks later (that stupidly had the exact same name and avatar as his previous account), only for that one to get banned shortly afterward as well. Not learning his lesson, he made a third Barq sockpuppet in July 2022 (which was again banned a couple of days after its creation). It's believed he may still have even more socks, but these are just the three we are personally aware of.
It was also discovered that Matthew had an account on Zenly (a geolocation app that tracks your location 24/7) and friended several random Pennsylvania furries who also used the service. Matthew's location being tracked allowed several insiders to leak information that would later lead to the next saga.
The "Anthrocon 2022" Saga (June-July 2022)(read more)
(NOTE: This saga is currently ongoing, some of this information is subject to change)
Ever since Matthew's charity fraud was made public knowledge, Anthrocon's chairman Uncle Kage has publicly stated on multiple occasions that he fully intends to bring legal action against Matthew, making sure he is held accountable for his actions. He also banned Matthew from Anthrocon for good measure, then got in contact with several other conventions to get Matthew banned from those as well.
While Anthrocon 2020 and 2021 were ultimately canceled due to Covid, AC eventually resumed in 2022, and Matthew made plans to attend. Apparently, Matthew's urges to see furries eclipsed his common sense, to say nothing of the fact he was banned and the chairman was trying to sue him.
Several of Matthew's friends would initially claim that Matthew never attended the event and that any mention of him being there was fake news. This was immediately proven false when multiple sightings of Matthew and #TeamNitro happened. Among others:
-Someone who added him on Zenly spotted him driving to Pittsburgh.
-His boyfriend Monty appeared on Barq with his live location set to Pittsburgh.
-Someone spotted Matthew at a restaurant about a block from the convention center and took a photo.
-Matthew was photographed going inside the convention center in his Dalmatian fursuit several times.
While there is currently no evidence that Matthew was disruptive at the actual event (yet), he was legally banned from attending in the first place, meaning it is extremely likely Matthew will face possible trespassing charges for his decision to attend.
Matthew Soltys is a pathetic, socially broken scam artist who is incapable of admitting his mistakes and has since surrounded himself with moronic white knights who are either unaware of his history, fallen for his lies, or who simply don't care because no other furries will tolerate them. He will continue to be actively shunned and despised by anyone with a brain until he either goes to jail or somehow repays the thousands of dollars he’s responsible for misappropriating.
He is also part of the reason why websites like Kiwi Farms exist in the first place. Sooner or later, Matthew will make another resurgence online with another failed stunt to get furries to like him again, and it will almost certainly blow up in his face. When that happens, someone will have to tell the younger generations the "legend" of Nitro Rooski. As such, it is our sworn duty to archive and re-tell his tale for all to hear. It's sort of like the ending to James and the Giant Peach, only with more being Mad on the Internet.

Known AliasesMatthew has a tendency to randomly delete, rename, and re-create his accounts, usually when he starts to attract any negative attention. Since this thread was first created, he has gone through enough usernames that I cannot fit them all into this thread's title (due to character limits for KF threads), therefore I have compiled a list of every known username Matthew has used at some point.
Before opening up this spoiler: Please get a figure in your mind as to how many aliases we could feasibly list. Someone who is terminally online and wants to re-insert himself among furries and has over say, 10 socks is going to be increasingly hard to connect to a single person, right?
