Kiwi Farms

Kiwi Farms (KF) was an online fascist-leaning harassment community which engaged extensively in targeted trolling, doxxing, SWATting, stalking, and other terroristic activities which resulted in at least three suicides by those targeted. In September 2022, CloudFlare finally opted to de-platform them, which led to a series of events culminating in KF's owner, Josh Moon, apparently deciding to give up on the much-reviled project.



  • 2022-09-21~ The Internet Archive reportedly de-lists its KF archive, as it was full of toxic information
    • @DropKiwifarms in response to someone rage-farming that this helps KF: «No, the archives were deleted because kiwifarms used it to store enough personal info to allow identity theft, including home address, dob, ssn, phone numbers, names, and more. You should be ashamed of yourself for suggesting otherwise, Archives did the right thing, sicko.»
  • 2022-09-19~ Hackers reportedly break into KF servers, release staff information to public, and delete the data (presumably KF has a backup somewhere, though)
    • @NattieForsyth «Apparently hackers hacked and deleted Kiwi Farms, after releasing every users staff status, ban status ban reason, password, and email to the public.»
  • 2022-09-05 Josh Moon, owner of KF, throws in the towel
    • @erininthemorn «Josh Moon, the owners of Kiwifarms, admits defeat. Keffals, her team (many of whom will stay anonymous and will never get any thanks), the trans community, and it’s allies took down the worst site on the internet. / There truly is nothing better in this world than Nazis crying.» Moon's Tor post is shown in a screenshot -- and he tries to make this sound like a corporate victory over individualism, when the corporations involved resisted taking any action as long as there was a profit to be made and KF consistently acted to crush individuals. reality inversion

    • 2018-06-22 Woman who set self on fire in Portland park remembered as 'brilliant and tortured' artist «Friends say Kiwi Farms followers harassed her on a variety of platforms. A friend who chose not to give his name, fearing repercussions from Kiwi Farms, said her livelihood and mental stability were destroyed by the attacks.» «"One factor that made it much harder for her to get help was that whenever she talked about suicide," [...] Kiwi Farms members "would report her Facebook page and get it locked down. This had happened multiple times in the month prior to her death."»
