    It's a a very nicely built scam:
    - build a member base online with the help of russia
    - qanon is entirely based off 8chan (owned by jim watkins)
    - jim watkins creates a "super PAC" to get big donations from & for the American ultra-right ( https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/k7eppz/qanon-now-has-its-very-own-super-pac )
    - "super PAC" spends money to buy ad space from 8chan
    - money channeled into Jim Watkin's pockets

    as a site admin I have to say I'm seriously considering doing this too!
    can someone think of a good conspiracy to start with? :D
    I'll also need someone to create me a super PAC please

    Not at all surprised about this but it's a nice thing to learn. Betcha Q-anon people will dismiss it as a "deep-state" hoax anyways.

    Was considering posting this myself. It's also worth noting this guy left America for the Philippines after suggesting that 8chan would be a safe haven for pedophiles, presumably to avoid attracting the attention of law enforcement here. Yet another right-wing master projectionist.

    Watkins wasn't the original 'Q,' or creator of QAnon, that was Frederick Brennan. He cut ties with the whole thing after the Christchurch shooting in New Zealand, stating "a lot of these sites cause more misery than anything else," and even advocating for 8chan to be taken down entirely with the statement: "it’s not doing the world any good. It’s a complete negative to everybody except the users that are there. And you know what? It’s a negative to them, too. They just don’t realize it." I'm not sure how many other people had control of the 'Q' handle in-between Brennan and Watkins.

    Start a conspiracy theory about how I'm dying of a rare disease that is incredibly expensive to cure and then start a gofundme so I can get millions of dollars in donations for my "cure".

    if you come up with a conspiracy it must involve everyone of you guys on the site and somehow it must try to save us from the evil new world order known as the game industry.

    given how evil the video game industry can be, id say you got a pretty good shot at this. lol

    LMFAO at Q morons being taken for a ride by a creepy pig-farm owning American who ran away to the Phillipines and started 8chan as a safe haven for people to post CP.

    you know the most interesting part of all of this, is that im sure this will be rationalized by the people that believe in this stuff. Thats the beauty of consipiracy theories... they are so absurd, they cannot be disproven by rational means.
    its like me saying the inside of the moon is made out of cheese. Someone can say its not and i could just reply saying that i wont believe it until i see a sample of the moons crust.

    lovely.

    Coke cola and Pepsi are secretly one company that's competing against itself to get around monopoly laws
    Consoles really cost about 37 bucks. The current price is an agreement between Nintendo and Sony (and Microsoft is being scammed for components' prices he two decades)
    There's a UN deep state that's being controlled by a subgroup (deeper state) consisting of three Madagascarians and someone from Mali.
    Aliens exist and control the internet through 5G
