TO ADD: /r/incestvideos and /r/IncestTorrents are just the same. Made by /u/incester and now gone.

Perhaps any of the other mods have heard something...

/u/TIXCY was the most active mod in /r/incest, she just is not online very much on weekends

/u/incester is almost certainly related, but it's unclear how.

He moderated all three. Set them all to private, removing all other mods and then his account. Helluva way to leave. Scorched earth.

Possibly. That's the most likely cause but until we hear something solid it's not worth spreading rumours.

I didn't consider evidence to be rumors. You, yourself speculated jsut the same here. http://www.reddit.com/r/IncestComics/comments/1yogwz/ineedaninviteto_rincest/cfmrdgs

I call truce considering that Incester could have been hacked, though I can't fathom why.

There is zero evidence, which is the issue.

To be honest this isn't helping the situation at all.

Three subs set to private and a deleted account isn't evidence?

Nine months of myself and others talking to the owner of the deleted account in the chatroom thereby knowing his life situation isn't evidence?

Do you require things to be notarized or something?

I'm not trying to help you. I don't know you, I don't trust you.

I'm concerned about u/Incester, who was in a very unstable situation, and has been for quite a long time. Would you like me to go back and pull chat logs for you and compile them so you can see for yourself?

Itself? No...

The rest I wasn't aware of. Regardless, you commenting with all this shit isn't helping to try and sort out the situation with the subreddits - whether you trust me or not.

Then follow your own advice and remove your own speculation http://www.reddit.com/r/IncestComics/comments/1yogwz/ineedaninviteto_rincest/cfmrdgs

Jesus, such a high horse you live up on. YOU aren't helping YOUR case here.

I'm doing the exact opposite in that comment. Trying to resolve the existing speculation - I really don't know what your obsession is with this.

Edit: I'm done replying to you now.

To be honest I don't really care 'who it goes to' I just want it all to be sorted out so people can actually access the subreddit.

Not sure if the efforts part is fair, but whatever.

Can you still see the content of the sub ?

No, I can see nothing. It's like I've been removed as a moderator - which I guess I have?

That really is burning the 'house' down, then. Tixcy's a full mod, I'd be curious to see if she has been as well. =/

I can't recall if I had full permissions, Tixcy definitely isn't a mod though. Look at her user page.

I - thought - that if the sub was private then who was a mod would be private. (even on their own profile) I guess if I knew a mod on a private sub that could be tested. Wait, I do.

Bingo. If the sub is private, then no one outside of that sub's permitted users can see that a person is a mod of that private sub. Just had someone test that. http://www.reddit.com/user/Inandoutofsis should be the mod of two subs. Yet I'll bet you can't see that.

You're right, I didn't think about that. That is the case too, just checked with someone I know. Just need to wait and see what happens to be honest.
