Might I ask the reason you bring up the hidden one? A clue as to why it went down or just, I dunno? Seems unlikely with how AFAIK the accepted narrative was that he was a gov op, for from however long. Though yet again, if one is to carry the tinfoil torch, maybe less unlikely given the obviousness of the whole either gov run or gov approved epstein thing. Or he was just of his time, was a wild west out there.
But yeah I'm mostly aware of the most recent-ish things before it dropped offline. Wondered more of the actual specific cause of doom. Had a foot in the discord server but I only ever checked in a couple of times. Lost the account.
Warning btw: Nostalgia venting incoming
I essentially grew up on there, skipped straight there instead of going to other chans first for some reason. Lots of interactions and ideas, lots of excellent times. Saw a bunch of things I probably shouldn't have at such a young age (lurked /gore/ alot when it was still there, very edgy teen, never knew about the hidden inappr. one until maybe 1-2 years before EndOf420 because people started bringing it up after the whole I-started-sushi rollymous thing), but that was the whole gen. those days anyway, equally fucked all of us those who where there. It felt quite weird at the end, for quite a bit, not really the same vibe at all. Ol Braz was the most 420ch of all the ones that stuck with it to the end IMO.
Shoutouts to all the schizoposters who took their turn at the wheel of yellow signs.
Also just in case someone strolls by who were around the same era, as a reminder of good times, I was the GIMPy dude. And stream-of-consciousness-thread-dude. And the designated schizoposter more times than I care to admit. And the librarian of threads regarding elephants. And the dude who officially inherited the TPG questline after the OG got tired of his work. Didn't do many, but I did do some, I did accept. Quality over quantity. Also if you saved a certain picture of a certain organic body part in a small paper hat, you might say I have boned your computer. I might have done many things more but those are lost in the exhales.
It was the best kind of internet I ever knew, it was home.HIFFWE in peace, may any seeds of positive intent and influence spread and flourish. HTP with slayer.
