An alleged Skype chat log of 4chan moderators (moot and 10 redacted names) was posted to pastebin on September 20. Its authenticity has not been confirmed.

The log Edit

[9/18/14 12:06 AM] moot: Why the fuck didn't you react sooner
[9/18/14 12:06 AM] moot: I guess it was my fault, but you could have done this without me
[9/18/14 12:06 AM] [REDACTED 1]: sorry m8, i was not sure what to do
[9/18/14 12:07 AM] [REDACTED 1]: but like

[9/18/14 12:07 AM] [REDACTED 2]: Moot, I hate to break it to ya, but it's not working
[9/18/14 12:08 AM] [REDACTED 3]: I fucking wish it worked but there are so many fucking people, it's too hard to stop them
[9/18/14 12:08 AM] moot: It's pissing me the fuck off too, believe me
[9/18/14 12:08 AM] moot: Where the hell are the other moderators? They don't display as online
[9/18/14 12:08 AM] [REDACTED 1]: mods are kill
[9/18/14 12:08 AM] [REDACTED 4]: It's late, moot, so excuse me if my posting is a bit sloppy
[9/18/14 12:08 AM] moot: This meeting is one of the most important we've ever had, EVERYONE NEEDS TO BE HERE
[9/18/14 12:08 AM] [REDACTED 2]: We've had like 800 discussions since Gamerhate started
[9/18/14 12:08 AM] [REDACTED 5]: ----'s gonna be late. he told me his computer BSOD'd
[9/18/14 12:09 AM] moot: It's fine. I called in 20 people, he's pretty much nothing more than an ally
[9/18/14 12:09 AM] [REDACTED 2]: Gamergate...
[9/18/14 12:09 AM] moot: I told you in the email it's about Gamergate
[9/18/14 12:09 AM] [REDACTED 7]: is this all this is?
[9/18/14 12:09 AM] [REDACTED 7]: are we seriously getting up in arms about a bunch of stupid fucking nerds making posts about some game dev
[9/18/14 12:09 AM] [REDACTED 8]: Ayyyyye lmao
[9/18/14 12:09 AM] [REDACTED 3]: aye m8
[9/18/14 12:09 AM] [REDACTED 6]: I'm glad we're addressing the issue in a hostile way, they don't respect us otherwise
[9/18/14 12:09 AM] [REDACTED 4]: Who gives a fuck about respect? This is about ending all harassment and bad reputation going to 4chan
[9/18/14 12:09 AM] moot: It used to be about that
[9/18/14 12:09 AM] moot: Now, we're fighting an army of stupid fucking nerds instead of just a bunch
[9/18/14 12:09 AM] [REDACTED 7]: i've been kind of out of it since that bomb threat
[9/18/14 12:09 AM] [REDACTED 9]: hi
[9/18/14 12:09 AM] moot: I feel for you. It's hard to ignore Gamergate to me, when I'M GETTING FUCKING DEATH THREATS
[9/18/14 12:10 AM] [REDACTED 1]: why would anyone want to threaten mootsan my lord and savior
[9/18/14 12:10 AM] [REDACTED 6]: I got a death threat too, but the person sending it lived on the other side of the world, like wtf lol
[9/18/14 12:10 AM] moot: Fuck this waiting, I'm shaking, I need to tell my unfiltered thoughts NOW
[9/18/14 12:10 AM] [REDACTED 3]: You sound distressed
[9/18/14 12:10 AM] [REDACTED 10]: I ARRIVED IN TIME OMG

[9/18/14 12:10 AM] moot: I'll be back!
[9/18/14 12:10 AM] [REDACTED 10]: I just got here and already moot's gone ;_;
[9/18/14 12:10 AM] [REDACTED 9]: he'll be back
[9/18/14 12:10 AM] [REDACTED 3]: Perfect time for me to take a shower if Moot's preparing a speech or whatevs
[9/18/14 12:11 AM] [REDACTED 5]: I think we can leave until Moot gets bafk
[9/18/14 12:12 AM] [REDACTED 2]: It's such a travesty when out fellow brothers gets depressed
[9/18/14 12:12 AM] [REDACTED 6]: Well damn

break in chat, for the next 30 minutes there are only 4 posts, pointless to leave in

[9/18/14 12:41 AM] moot: My speech is done. Horrifying revelations have been revealed.
[9/18/14 12:42 AM] [REDACTED 11]: OH SHIT
[9/18/14 12:42 AM] [REDACTED 1]: MUH GAWD
[9/18/14 12:42 AM] [REDACTED 2]: I'm ready!!!
[9/18/14 12:42 AM] moot: This cannot get out. They will be fucking pissed beyond belief if it gets out
[9/18/14 12:42 AM] [REDACTED 4]: Moot, what happened to the other mods. There are only 12 of us online...
[9/18/14 12:42 AM] moot: Timezone issues I assume. I'm not going to fault them, but I told them about this last night
[9/18/14 12:42 AM] moot: They could've just said "I can't come" instead of leaving me hanging. Oh well.
[9/18/14 12:42 AM] [REDACTED 5]: We're listening, man
[9/18/14 12:42 AM] [REDACTED 3]: I haven't been this anxious since the Chris-Chan debatacle ffs
[9/18/14 12:42 AM] moot: Chris-Chan was some weird autistic kid. This is nowhere close to that.
[9/18/14 12:42 AM] [REDACTED 7]: it's weird how just a month ago we were all like "huh well isn't this interesting"
[9/18/14 12:42 AM] [REDACTED 1]: hurry up with the speech moot
[9/18/14 12:42 AM] [REDACTED 2]: I'm anxious too m8
[9/18/14 12:42 AM] moot: Hold the fuck on, damn
[9/18/14 12:42 AM] [REDACTED 7]: but now it's become so enticing, a disgusting perverted issue that is a war between rational people who just want to support women, and lanky disgusting fucks who can't stand the idea of a woman having sex
[9/18/14 12:42 AM] [REDACTED 1]: you know what they say
[9/18/14 12:42 AM] [REDACTED 6]: I arrived just in time wtf
[9/18/14 12:43 AM] [REDACTED 1]: dumbfucks gonna dumbfuck
[9/18/14 12:43 AM] moot: Read this thoroughly before responding, don't post while I'm posting:
[9/18/14 12:43 AM] [REDACTED 2]: It's habbnin'
[9/18/14 12:43 AM] moot: Cracked sent me an email a few days ago
[9/18/14 12:43 AM] moot: The same day Zoe issued her article, to be exact
[9/18/14 12:43 AM] moot: They told me they are strong supporters of the Social Justice Movement, and are through sitting behind while the harassment goes on
[9/18/14 12:44 AM] moot: They said if I didn't stop Gamergate on 4chan, they would write an article that "exposes" 4chan for the "true cesspit" it is. They're also going to basically get feminists to hack in and take down my site.
[9/18/14 12:44 AM] moot: And coincidentally, I got a letter that threatened to lynch me in the streets, from a group of hackers who strongly support feminism.
[9/18/14 12:44 AM] moot: A day before this, I went to see Anita speak at XOXO, and she was absolutely lovely. Behind the scenes, I got to have a word with her. We hit it off perfect, and we're now friends through online communication.
[9/18/14 12:44 AM] moot: I told her my situation, and her advice was to get my mods to delete everything Gamergate on site.
[9/18/14 12:44 AM] moot: I was reluctant, but after that day, I did what she said. You all remember the day I told you to delete Gamergate shit, we were convinced it would work.
[9/18/14 12:44 AM] moot: But it didn't fucking work.
[9/18/14 12:45 AM] moot: That hacker group is real btw.
[9/18/14 12:45 AM] moot: They've been sending more letters to my house, and emails to my personal address.
[9/18/14 12:45 AM] moot: Funny thing is, I still support them more than I do Gamergate.
[9/18/14 12:45 AM] moot: So, that's why I'm so worried. I got Cracked making threats and a group threatening to take down my site.
[9/18/14 12:45 AM] moot: The two are very powerful, and can get done what they say they want to get done.

...mostly just reiterating and people reacting for the next few minutes, nothing noteworthy.
here's where the real dirt begins:

[9/18/14 12:59 AM] [REDACTED 2]: The Internet Aristocrat's real name is ------ - ------- and it turns out he has a real job at ------------. Maybe, we could call him at work and get him fired because of his shameless support of harassment?
[9/18/14 12:59 AM] [REDACTED 3]: Holy hell, how did you find that?
[9/18/14 1:00 AM] [REDACTED 2]: A friend who used to know him. The Aristocrat's a disgusting human being, he deserves it.
[9/18/14 1:00 AM] [REDACTED 10]: We have dox on a lot of Gamergate supporters.
[9/18/14 1:00 AM] [REDACTED 10]: Nero and MundaneMatt among others.
[9/18/14 1:00 AM] moot: While I don't advocate doxing, maybe this could play into our advantage.
[9/18/14 1:00 AM] [REDACTED 5]: Couldn't we just scare the supporters off?
[9/18/14 1:00 AM] moot: Scaring them off could take work.
[9/18/14 1:00 AM] [REDACTED 6]: Tell them we got dox because they posted in /v/
[9/18/14 1:00 AM] [REDACTED 8]: What the hell, you're not legitimately considering this are you?
[9/18/14 1:00 AM] [REDACTED 8]: They could find out it was us.
[9/18/14 1:00 AM] [REDACTED 1]: we can use firewalls, lol
[9/18/14 1:00 AM] moot: I'm reluctant, but not unwilling to try that.
[9/18/14 1:01 AM] [REDACTED 8]: Fine, but what about the people using proxies?
[9/18/14 1:01 AM] [REDACTED 5]: There are more people without proxies than people with proxies.
[9/18/14 1:01 AM] moot: ^ We can get rid of most of them.
[9/18/14 1:01 AM] [REDACTED 5]: I'll work on the idea. Maybe, get in one normie supporter so it looks legit.
[9/18/14 1:01 AM] moot: Nice. Sometimes hostility is the answer. Not all the time, but sometimes.

it all gets kind of un-noteworthy after that, but the last thing i mentioned...

[9/18/14 1:31 AM] [REDACTED 5]: What about that new site you mentioned earlier?
[9/18/14 1:31 AM] moot: I got Tumblr's support on the project. I'm still brainstorming though...
[9/18/14 1:31 AM] [REDACTED 1]: any ideas?
[9/18/14 1:32 AM] [REDACTED 8]: Tumblr? You're not going SJW on me are you?
[9/18/14 1:32 AM] moot: Fuck off. Speak with me in IM. I've got a word to have with you.
[9/18/14 1:32 AM] [REDACTED 7]: you can support social justice without being from tumblr, dipshit
[9/18/14 1:32 AM] moot: In response to ------, I have no current ideas.
[9/18/14 1:32 AM] [REDACTED 1]: what about 4chan?
[9/18/14 1:32 AM] [REDACTED 3]: #BurnDown4chan
[9/18/14 1:32 AM] [REDACTED 5]: 4chan's ride never ends. It just gets more disgusting and disturbing as you go along
[9/18/14 1:32 AM] moot: I'll have to rebuild it from the ground up, or I'll sell it to someone else.
[9/18/14 1:32 AM] [REDACTED 7]: Why would you be worried about hackers taking it down if you yourself want to take it down?
[9/18/14 1:32 AM] moot: I said sell it, not shut it down.
[9/18/14 1:33 AM] [REDACTED 7]: Either way, can you make sure to permanently ban everyone who's posted in Gamergate threads?
[9/18/14 1:33 AM] [REDACTED 4]: Yeah, if you want to rebuild 4chan, the first step is banning EVERY. SINGLE. GAMERGATE. SUPPORTER.
[9/18/14 1:33 AM] moot: It'll take a lot of work, but I'll probably do that.
[9/18/14 1:33 AM] moot: Don't know yet.
