I'm going to start by saying I am 100% aware that this is not absolute proof of anything damning. It does however raise serious questions because of how....bizarre it is, and the implications of this.
September of 2015. John Kelly is approached by COV, who, out of nowhere in the exchange, says that she is "I'm still down to skype with you (John) some time". She is oddly friendly towards him here despite their prior interactions. John, interestingly, agrees, and presumably they have their "skype conversation". The twitter exchange ends with COV saying "I do owe you apology and explanation for other stuff".
This is never brought up again, neither of them mention ever having this private chat, nor do either of them talk about what exactly occured, or why COV of all people suddenly wanted to have a private chat with John in the first place. Or why she wanted to "apologize" to him, or explain to him.
Fast forward to May 16th 2016. KingofPol tweets at Variloh telling him he wants he and John to send him a direct message. He says he wants to have a "conversation" in order to "clear this up bc I honestly have zero issues with either u or John". Variloh agrees. And, like the previous instance with John and COV, this is never mentioned again, nor is what occurred in this private conversation or why KOP suddenly went from being open enemies with John and Variloh to suddenly saying he has "no issue" with them and wants to make amends.
Now, what happened not long afterwards? Well, that's when John and Variloh suddenly decided to pull out the knives and back-stab just about all of their allies, and launched their campaign against any they have associated with DDM (who they friendly with and involved in their groups prior to this). They also ceased any and all serious hostilities against their former enemies (including COV, KOP, Acid Man, V-clique, etc.), and, interestingly, those very same shills ceased any and all serious hostilities against John and Variloh. Many (if not all) of those very same shills just so happened to be enemies with several of the people John and Variloh are now trying so hard to destroy.
It was also at this point that the two of them adopted the same tactics and behaviors of GG+/V-clique. Secretly having moles enter the groups of their former friends and record them without their knowledge, then leak what they've obtained, using labeling and out-grouping (the same tactics used by Zoe Quinn and friends, along with GG+/V-clique to divide and conquer GG, from without and within), developed double standards towards their own allies (they attack specific individuals for "degeneracy" while willfully housing and turning a blind eye to those very same types on their own side), treating themselves as infallible and unquestionable.
Now while John and Variloh have thrown the occasional insult at the GG+/V shills since then, taking potshots at your enemy is not exactly doing them any real harm. You do not seem them doing the same thing to the people they have associated with being DDM (or, to be more precise, the specific individuals who frequent that channel that they want to take down).

I bet you're hoping this thread will be forgotten, eh?

Sorry about that, the new servers don't have the auto-renew shit set up and we weren't aware it was expiring so soon.
An open letter to Jim and Ron. Excerpted from the barely functional 8ch sudo board:
What a sad joke this has become.
You were warned about the failure of infinity next and that Joshua moon was going to sperg out you did not listen
Fred and the dev team offered to code replacement software for next since infinity is a universal development dead end and thus will ALWAYS fall to its doom sooner or later be it security functionality or both in this case security caught up first
You were warned due to its failing state infinity had numerous security flaws and was storing plain text ips and posting data against even the wishes of its owner you didn't listen
You were warned without new software eventually the site would die and that rule did not change in spite of Josh sperging out.
It seems that consistently everytime since the moment you became financially involved with us you were warned about something or told what the best course of action was you consistently did the opposite and fucked yourself and then wondered why it didn't work.
Ron and Jim you are unbelievably fucking retarded. You have the infrastructure and had, past tense, the people willing to code and finish out the idea that stood at the core of infinity next yet you did not take it in favor of end to end control. The idea being to code a true dht / darkchan backend and create decentralized image boards for the first time truly decentralized one's. The only problem would have been there'd have been no true end to end control for you the same as with most Foss this is why in your arrogance you didn't allow it and it's why nobody gave a fuck and left this site to its doom after that.
You retards made point for point the same mistakes moot and hiroyuki nishimura made despite having witnessed them in person and you are going to suffer the same fate but in the process the era of clearnet or even traditional image boards has ended as a result of your actions and those of others like you.
You cannot corporatize a stand alone complex without destroying it stop trying to introduce control where chaos is nature. You have fucking lost.
And as much as I loved this place death would be merciful now. Sincerely and I mean this, Fuck you Jim and Fuck you Ron an hero immediately. If I had even a tiny fraction of the money or infrastructure you had there id have still put it to better use. It is not rocket science to make good software.
