"As of June 18th, 2008, in an attempt to be funny and original, moot and his team of modfags edited a sad song from MGS4 into the site along with the above message, locked the board down, and renamed it "old /b/." This is also coming only a day after /b/ was renamed /vaporeon/. However, it was soon unlocked and a couple of stickies were added. Chaos ensued.
Could this be the end of an era? Or perhaps the sign of another re/b/irth? No, moot just probably played too much Metal Gear and got drunk. The stupid fucking plot went to his head, and he decided to fuck with us like the game fucked with him. Also, Big Boss is alive ZOMG!!11!" -encyclopedia dramatica
