No one can accurately give a prediction on the future but here's mine anyway:
@moot is a confirmed faggot for this.
Moot is officially srs bsns for this.
I've seen more meat on a chicken's ankle.
But look at that coif. It is like liquid gold.
Uh no, I'd be pissed too if some corporate assholes were trying to make a profit off ripping off the nonprofit I've worked for years on and then blatantly using the name I made noticeable in the first place to facilitate it.
I'm not the only one that feels that way apparently.
This will be an interesting case precedent as it pertains to the ownership of someone's online identity.
We're all going to forget about this by the end of the week.
If you hadn't replied, I would have already forgotten.
Edit: from their preview page, it looks more like they are trying to rip off Yahoo comments more than anything.
Took the words right out of my mouth. I guess Moot is too fucking stupid to pick up a dictionary to realize that you can't copyright a name like that. I see, I see, in the future, people taking moot domain names and showing him sucking cock for the drama of it all.
Oh that'd be funny to see. But I'm beginning to think that this is all going to Poole's head. He thinks he's a visionary or some shit like that dude who made facebook. When in reality his site is is a place to download CP and shitty animu porn.
IT's not that, they are copying 4chan then using Moot. It's the context that's key and they are deliberately stealing his identity that he created to make $$$. These assholes are manipulating the law against others, I don't see why others shouldn't manipulate it against them.
Who gives a shit, Moot is a dumbass. And how many other sites are there that are image boards? Like, a million? Hardly unique either on their part at all. Not to mention out of all the domains they choose, they go with moot.it. Seriously, I didn't even know that existed until I seen it. So really who cares, what more damage could they do that Poole hasn't already done to himself?
Have you even looked at the page? They are copying Yahoo Answers.
I had every right to do this. These faggots are trying to make money off of MY name. The only reason anyone would using their shitty comment system is because of the name moot, which I have spent a decade building, and these guys think that they can just come in and make money off of my hard work? Well fuck that. I will sue these motherfuckers into the fucking ground.
That's exactly what I said, and you can't be Moot but I agree with you.
A few things my good man;
1. You built 4chan, not Moot. I doubt anybody google's moot looking for you. They might type moot in the ED search bar...
2. Streisand Effect. That service looks pretty cool. I just subscribed to their notification list. Thanks for giving me (and everyone else) the heads up about it. Now they can change their name and still have more popularity than they would if you ignored that shit in the first place.
3. I don't know about anyone else, but I don't associate your name with 4chan or forums in general. The image brought to mind when I see your name, unfortunately, happens to be the pic of you cumming on yourself that has been perma-scared into my brain.
Thanks for that btw.
They could just change the domain to curia.it The word "court" is rooted in the Latin word Curia, and what is a court but a place where a bunch of people meet to discuss things? It's fitting for the domain. I'd rather not see an Old English word sully an Italian domain.
Yes, you are correct! Posting in a thread is the best way to show apathy!
Bullshit, they are using Moot in reference to popular culture IE: MOOOOOOT of 4chan to bolster their site, right now 4chan is the 2nd google search for this site
1. open to discussion or debate; debatable; doubtful: a moot point.
2. of little or no practical value or meaning; purely academic.
3. Chiefly Law . not actual; theoretical; hypothetical.
None of these fits the situation.
He legally shuts this down Streisand effect is pointless, they aren't anon or some rebellious netizens and they aren't some backwards image board. They are a corporation, a purely legal entity that only exists within the mind of the law and operates according to the will of the law. Should Moot.it be shut down there will be nothing for the striesand effect to affect, you dumbass.
Well then you either are ignorant or an idiot, or both; so which is it?
That's not really moot, you stupid motherfuckers.
this is a moot point.
They're using moot probably to reference the ease of implementation and the lack of care needed to keep it running.
He can't stop them from changing their name, and if they do, they can easily just tell everyone who signed up on their list that its been changed, not to mention all the news articles would probably update to point to the new site.
lol, seemed legit.
U haven't been there a lot, I guess...
There's almost no CP in 4chan, and certainly nothing to download
This is almost exactly like when Oprah tried to copyright her name, for almost the same reasons. Do you really want to be seen as comparable to Oprah?
You = dumb
No shit. Stop ruining our fun.
Anyways, I bet butthurted btards are gonna ddos the shit out of it
If i drew it in ASCII form would it be easier to bear?
That's not a promise btw, more a curiosity.
