I don't believe the OP.
He used to share his personal family pictures a lot back when he was streaming in the van.
TempleOS (formerly J Operating System, SparrowOS and LoseThos) is a biblical-themed lightweight operating system created by the American programmer Terry A. Davis. He developed the system alone over the course of 10 years. It was designed to be the Third Temple, according to Davis, and uses an interface similar to a mixture of DOS and Turbo C. Davis describes the operating system as a modern x86-64 Commodore 64 with a variation of C (named HolyC) in place of BASIC.
Except, Terry Davis became schizophrenic and wouldn't take his meds. He changed the name of his OS to TempleOS after he decided he was hearing god through it.
He used to comment here on HN (user "templeos" now deleted apparently), but his increasingly irrelevant and (literally) insanely racist comments quickly led him to being shadowbanned.
Vice wrote an article about him: https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/wnj43x/gods-lonel...
Last we heard a year or so ago, he was homeless in Vegas after getting kicked out by his parents: https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=16105043

It was very sad to witness his condition deteriorating over the past months.
What makes you say that? And what does the alt-right have to do with 4chan?
To this day, the pervasive politics of most of 4chan are hard right, leaning into ethnostatism.
You'd be hard pressed to find an alt right rally without heavy 4chan cultural aesthetic (pepe, kekistan, etc)
I know his behaviour wasn't looked at the best and he generally offended just about everybody that read the stuff he wrote but, it's kinda funny, when I first discovered templeOS I was right in the middle of trying to help a fairly intensely schizophrenic friend of mine get their life together. A lot of stuff I read about Terry's life and the stuff he did reminded me a lot of the stuff my friend was going through. Terry seemed like he could have had some semblance of a reasonable life if he'd gotten the kind of help he needed but the way he acted seemed to alienate anyone who tried even his family. It's sad. He really did seem like a genius in a lot of ways. It's too bad he was totally fucked and never got the help he needed.
His statements were offensive, but I don't blame him at all - I empathize with his mental health struggles. May he rest in peace.

We'll miss watching your live streams Terry. See you on the other side.
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft star-shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.
People don't think it's acceptable, which is why he was constantly being banned from online forums. People think it's understandable because it's a function of illness, not a core part of his personality.
Please don't lump all mental health "issues" together as you have here. Schizophrenia is quite different to something like depression. Psychosis does not "remove the filter" or "reveal the true identity".
Terry was an ill person who was failed by society -- he didn't get the treatment he needed. We don't need to add to that by blaming him for things caused by his illness.
But FWIW, if someone thinks racist things but never speaks nor acts upon them, I'm not sure what it means to "accept" that or not; and I'm not sure how we could possibly know if they only came out because of schizophrenia or if schizophrenia triggered them in the first place. It all just seems to be kind of moot.
Read that, and try to understand why it is tasteless.
We'll he's dead now. You don't have to worry about hell banning him anymore so you can feel good about yourself.
