The Website That All of Us Now Need The Most is Gone [Arnox]

Original video creator(s): Arnox - script writer, video maker

Creator's description:
A site that had lasted for 20 years straight and had a huge following was shut down without warning in 2009. And now, 13 years later, when we need this site the most, it's simply not there. I will go over why this site cannot be forgotten, why the popular internet landscape of today has become a wasteland of corruption, corporate control, harmful social systems, and unreliability, and finally, what we can do about all of it now, today.
