Welp. 8chan is Down Forever. Apparently.

We’ve got an update on the fate of 8chan, which appears to indicate that 8chan is dead forever.

Tom Riedel, the head of NT Technology, which is the company associated with 8chan and the other ventures of “Gentleman Jim” Watkins, flew to Manila to meet with Hot Wheels, and told him that 8chan is permanently dead.

He was there to meet with Hot Wheels for another purpose, and I guess just happened to admit that there is currently no plan for the company to bring back 8chan in the foreseeable future, saying “8chan is a defunct entity.”

There has been no official response from Jim or anyone else at 8chan to these claims by Hot Wheels. Earlier this month, Jim told Jack Posobiec that 8chan should be back up “soon.”

The closest thing we got to a reply to Hot Wheels is Ron, Jim’s son, posting yet another cryptic post implying something is happening at some time.

You can go check his Twitter. All it is is cryptic statements. There is no play by play, at all, coming from the 8chan team, and now we have Riedel, one of the top people involved in the project, saying it isn’t coming back.

Hot Wheels claims that Riedel also revealed some other interesting facts, such as the reason that people think Gentleman Jim is demented is that he has hearing loss.

That certainly explains a lot….. I guess.

No one really knows what’s going on, because there is no way to read into any of these people’s minds and they are not being forthcoming with any information which may be helpful. However, I would say that the fact that there is no direct denial by Jim or Ron that the site is dead indicates that it is probably dead.

I want everyone to understand that this isn’t Hot Wheels’ fault. People are getting a little bit confused about that. He literally has nothing at all to do with any of it. He just happens to be the person breaking the news.

However, that doesn’t excuse his rude behavior.

And I too am angry at Hot Wheels for acting like a smug little cripple over this. Acting like some… Inspector Gadget villain, in his electric chair with his little dog…

I don’t know why he has to be so smug.

But whatever. He’s gotta do what he’s gotta do, I guess.

He says we will all come to acceptance when we realize that Q will come back on a different site.

Of course, I don’t care about Q and none of our readers here do. We care about a free speech site, and not having the entire of English chandom be on 4chan.

We also care that a successful takedown of 8chan likely means that they’re going to take down 4chan next. And then who knows what after that. Infowars, probably. Or whatever.

This is all a hecked-up disaster. It’s the beginning of the end.

They were not able to take the Daily Stormer down. And other than my own reasons, and my anti-Semitic reasons, it was important to keep the site online so they couldn’t set a precedent of totally deplatforming a legal website.

If 8chan is really down, that precedent has now been set.

It’s a bad deal, kids.
