NeoGaf, which went offline last weekend following sexual allegations against its founder, was put back online yesterday.
Tyler Malka, NeoGaf’s founder, denied the allegation made against him in a statement on the forum. A subsequent message from NeoGaf’s moderation team announced that the forum’s off-topic boards would be closed for a short time to focus NeoGaf’s discussion to TV, movies, anime, writing, music etc, away from political topics.
Users that came back online reacted furiously with new threads referencing the claims and accusing Malka of shutting down to protect himself. Kotaku took screenshots within minutes of the site coming back online showing negative reactions from users.
