A short story:
1- Back in 2010, moot hanged out with Mallory Blair (a girl with pretty high connections).
2- Back in 2011 moot joked that he hanged out with Boxxy. Pic related. Girl in pic was obviously not Boxxy, but nobody new who Mallory was.
3- Jump back to 2014. During the GamerGate threads, a rumour started in /pol/ that moot was dating Mallory and that she influenced him to stop the GamerGate threads. /pol/ made fun of moot that he was a cuck (because Mallory had a BF so they implied that moot had been friendzoned b Mallory)
4- moot abandoned 4chan's administration some months later, not before destroying /pol/ and making a wordfilter that changed cuck into cluck.
