Infighting is extremely common on Lolcow.
I think you should consider keeping this place up, at least until someone steps up to take it.
Anons will screech and groan because of the deception, especially ones with intensely paranoid leanings, but as it stands, no one is giving better options, because they're too scared, or simply reluctant. Neither groups can offer a solution on what to do, and it's almost like they want us to just have no space at all.
The reason I have a degree oof trust in you is that any male with bad intentions would've run for the hills at being exposed, or immediately started pretending to have already turned the site over to a female administrator to take the heat off himself. It'd be lies on top of lies, if not total deletion.
Instead of lying, you've owned up to everything and opened the door for discussion and an anon to take over. It's definitely more transparent than some of the actions many of Lolcow's admins have taken.
