Hey, as I've said before I post on 2ch.

For anyone else who likes 2ch, the birthplace of the Densha Otoko, shift-JIS art and a million others...

It's almost over....

The world's biggest forum is going to die next week.

Here's some info:

1. A 35 year old salesman's private information was leaked on 2ch.
2. The salesman is suing 2ch for $50,000
3.The owner of 2ch can pay this amount, but if he does then even more people will sue 2ch.
4. The owner won't pay the money so 2ch will be closed.

There's more but it's too hard for me to translate...

I've never paid any attention to 2ch, but I know a few people who do. It seems odd that 2ch would be held accountable for what happened to this man and not the person who actually leaked the information. Confused

It's an anonymous board and so the person that leaked the information on there can't actually be traced...

I hope they don't go through with this...No

It's a huge mistake to let something as great as 2ch end like this.

If it's all anonymous, then how do they know that the guy didn't just set the whole thing up in order to sue and get money? Confused

That's a good point~ At that, I don't see how he can actually sue since he'd have to actually sue the person who posted the information assuming he didn't do it himself in order to have a valid case. So legally speaking, 2chan nor it's owner should be able to be held liable for it. Really, I'd say they should just keep it up, I mean, they can't just let it go down like this, they need to fight back. It is 2chan afterall, I'm sure they can fight back and win several times over Love
