    New hitpiece just dropped.

    My personal favorite:
    Josh Moon, the 30-year-old baby-faced troll king who founded Kiwi Farms a decade ago, lives with his mom in Pensacola, Florida. His story is fragmented, mostly buried in years of disorganized forum entries. He posts under the username “Null.” His mother, who supports him, is a former nurse and now a real estate agent. He has dark brown hair. He does not appear to have a job.

    Followed up by
    According to another researcher (who isn’t publicly authorized to share their findings), addresses associated with Moon and Kiwi Farms received 4.6 bitcoins between 2019 and 2021­—worth more than $317,000 at bitcoin’s peak in November 2021.

    So which is it? Am I processing hundreds of thousands of dollars or am I unemployed and supported by someone I haven't spoken to in 6 years? It's amazing how on one hand the journos cry about people being made fun of on the Internet (to the point where this author chooses to directly accuse the site itself of organizing SWATting with literally zero evidence), but then immediately goes on to try and implicate a 50-year-old woman who hasn't given me a dollar in almost a decade.

    I can barely bottle my contempt for these people.

    Database reboot in progress. Sorry for the downtime.

    The recent downtime is due to another database error. This happens because of how active the site is, and XenForo not being well designed for Galera clustering. I intend to change the setup of the Kiwi Farms in the next month so that the database is less likely to lock up as it has been doing.
