moot is the creator of 4chan. Despite him being 13 when he made it, he made it 18+ internationally. Moot sold 4Chan to Hiroyuki Nishimura (Moottu, Jackie 4Chan), the person who inspired him to create 4chan, in 2015. Moot was originally a user of the Something Awful forums, and 2Channel, before they went to shit.
