How does outing this guy force him to shut down the Qmap site? Presumably he believes in what he’s doing, so I don’t quite get it.
I suppose there is a lot of possible legal trouble for people who can be blamed for originating the material. After all, they are accusing living, famous people of being child killing pedophiles.
And, well, if he acts like it is no big deal, that goes against his assertion that there is an international cabal of super powerful people trying every way to stop them.
It imposes consequences on his free speech. If he’s a strong enough believer in this dangerous nonsense that he’d create and host a major site that furthers it, he should have no problem taking proud responsibility for it and accepting the fallout in other areas of his life.
I don’t know if he just punked out on his commitment to his “patriotic movement to save the country” in order to save his job (spoiler: too late) or if his Web host took the site down. Either way, good riddance.
I agree. Mrs. Hungryjoe suggested that he was making money off the site, and that profiteering nature would become a liability for him.
A database of QAnon believers would be the gold standard for sales leads. Hopefully has and will continue to sell whatever user data he collected. They are God’s perfect chumps.
No, I think you get it.
Great news! It’s only a matter of time before I’m outed by AI for my relentless one liners.
well NOW i don’t!
Cowardice. He doesn’t believe in what he’s doing. He was doing it for the same reason that game kiddies “swat” people they don’t like - bad manners and no morals. He was doing it because he got a sick thrill from knowing that he was screwing up other peoples’ lives. He got a sick thrill from seeing that his **** was being picked up on by celebrities - it gave him a vicarious kick from thinking that he was kind of a player by proxy on the national power stage. And he got a really sick thrill from thinking that he was getting away with this stuff. He thought he was untouchable, that he could say anything he wanted and he was safe from consequences. He probably giggled like a 9-year-old girl every time he posted something. But now, he’s thinking that people he has pi**ed off will be out to retaliate, and he doesn’t have the spine to face that.
Wait, the guy we’re talking about here just ran a website archive of things the Q guy says. He’s a database admin, not the actual content creator. He scrapes posts from other sites and adds them to his own site, but he doesn’t represent himself as Q.
Anyone who will swallow something like QAnon is a natural-born sucker waiting to be fed more lies.
Something else from the Logically article that has been largely unreported is that there is a child porn server running on the same server / CDN proxy as the QMap.pub server.
Look at the diagram in that article which shows the other sites hosted / proxied through the same VanwaTech IP address. The last one bottom right is an xyz address. I don’t recommend visiting there.
Not surprising that most Q people don’t realize what goes on in other parts of 8chan, but the fact that the site hosting the Qanon “prayer wall” is the same IP as a site that sexualizes kids is pretty stupid.
It will be “fake news” made up by the lyin media, (QMap did not disappear, and there will be posts to prove it). At the exact same time, it will also be the Deep State kidnapped him/her/it and drank his/her/its blood and will come for the rest of QAnon if they do not rise up and stop democracy from taking over the country.
So, they are saying Trump really is Q after all?
I agree with you from the top down, but Q has also attracted a large following of “suburban Mom’s on Facebook” who see a cause about “saving children” and don’t realize they are being groomed for the Q cult until they are knee deep in the Kool-Aid.
Just to be clear, I didn’t write that. I was quoting a post by @columbines from another thread.
i realize you may be saying this partly as a joke, but no, they didn’t – they said that at this point, the entire thing is like the Dread Pirate Roberts, where anyone can claim to be Q, but there’s no way to prove it either way. they said that it’s more like the original Occupy movement, or even Antifa, having no organized leader, but unlike them QAnon has no goals other than chaos and disinformation, which makes them more akin to the Islamic State in the early days, before they became ISIS.
ot, but… this is why reporters should probably stop asking trump about things like woodward’s book - he’s never going to say, oh! you caught me you pesky kids - instead, they should just go interview psychologists on narcissistic personality disorder…
there are bigger things to worry about if you have an account with citibank.
here’s a partial list of their financial misdeeds:
It opens him to consequences. If he’s not a true believer, those might just be social (fired from a job loss of contact with friends) or legal (defamation suits). If he is a true believer you can add fear of murder or whatnot by the deep state. Just because someone is willing to take behind the scenes actions for a group or cause doesn’t mean they are prepared for the full possible costs of that assistance being national news. I sincerely hold a lot of minority political opinions and while I’m happy to discuss them individually, post about them in a variety of fora, and work to see them realized, I also don’t inform all possible employers of them or tell every distant relative.
