First, I'd like to say a huge thank you to everybody who went out of their way to report the CP on Imgoat, both anonymously and also on Voat. You guys are the unsung heroes of the internet. However, that's not why I'm posting this. I'm posting because, boy oh boy, do I have a story to tell.
I checked the site earlier this afternoon for illegal content, going through the 20ish most recent uploads, and also clicking on a few random filenames that stood out. Nothing terrible.
Oh, and I also just so happened to have a last-minute meeting scheduled with a potential angel investor. So, we were facetiming, and he seemed cool and polite, I shared the link to the site, and mentioned the massive spike in traffic last week. He's looking at it, talking, then all of a sudden stopped and said:
"Jesus Fucking Chirst, dude, there's CP on this thing!"
I gotta admit, that was a little embarrassing. However, because I'm Mr. Cool Cucumber IRL, I managed to brush it off with a nonchalant, "Oh, I'll take care of it," then proceeded to field questions on how often it happens, if the site is in good legal standing, and blah blah.
I'm sure there's a valuable lesson in here somewhere, maybe the lesson is to spend more time on Voat, or check notifications first thing in the morning. I'm not sure, but geez, that was a brief awkward moment.
