A popular website that aggregates QAnon conspiracy theories was shut down after a New Jersey man has been exposed as the operator of the site which garners thousands of dollars in revenue monthly.
The fact-checking site Logically.ai identified Jason Gelinas on 10 September as being the “developer and mouthpiece” of the site which aggregates a plethora of Q posts.
William Turton reporting for Bloomberg reached out to Gelinas outside of his home for comment where the web operator declined to give any details about the operation.
“I’m not going to comment on any of that,” Gelinas said. “I am not going to get involved. I want to stay out of it.”
A Linkedin profile for Gelinas states that he works at Citigroup as an information and security analyst.
QAppAnon, the online name of qmap’s creator, also runs a Patreon account, which receives more than $3,000 a month in donations, according to the Patreon site. In March, QAppAnon announced on Patreon an upcoming Android app named “Armor of God,” a social network for followers of QAnon.
Citigroup has refused to comment.
