1. I yamsyamsyams *something*. Where'd the errant '3' come from?
2. What's the origin of these Euronymous/showerhead references?

[edit] It's been censored. It's an inequality symbol with a '3' tacked on.

Euronymous went apeshit on his girlfriend with a showerhead in some sort of drunken rage.

Of course he had to post about it and get sympathy from his fellow goons for the damage he did to his precious showerhead.

If you're speaking of "< 3" minus the space, it forms a heart. The same way ;-) forms a winking face. Look at it sideways. This originated in some lovely rear end teen chat AOL room, no doubt, and was transferred over for sarcastic usage to the educated world. It was then assimilated and is now accepted for use to indicate like or love for someone.

If you're speaking of the actual phrase "yamsyamsyams", that's just what appears when a word (or emoticon) has been censored and is no longer cool enough to be on the forums (see above paragraph regarding heart).

<deleted user>


IIRC, yamsyamsyams is lowtax's filter for "goat se.cx". Or something along those lines...

Goon, I think, was just a word that came into usage naturally. As far as I can remember, no-one really posted anything like "I know! How about Something Awful Goons?" It captures the SA crowd's potential as a crippling band of e-thugs.

And thanks to idiotsavant and Fistgrrl, my cerebrum no longer burns with unanswered questions when I try to sleep.

Okay, where does "HOORJ" come from? My first thought was Esperanto, but come on, I'm sure the true origin is far more banal...

This is partially correct. "yamsyamsyamsyams" was basically a catchall for all censored words, including my username for a short period of time.

I've always sort of wondered who thought up calling us all "goons". I'm sure a couple people might try to take credit but I think that we'll never really know for sure and it'll be some sort of weird mystery that will never be fully explained, which is cool.

Oh, and my first username was "iWILLKILLYOU", which was registered back in 6-00.

If anyone has any questions about me and my long, embarassing history on these forums I'll answer them, even though my memory kind of sucks and no one probably cares.

Also, why did you lose your moderatorship?

SPACE FACE! SPACE FACE!

Wasn't yams introduced by the famous Captain Yams? Or some other user name that involved yams...

This is quite funny to read. It's almost like overhearing a discussion about star trek geeks holding forth about the show. "No, they didn't change the uniforms until the second season, the first time you saw them was in episode foobar". Just goes to show that the human mind will seize upon nearly anything to distract itself from its own incipient death.

Edit to add my own question: Can anyone list the 'faux' moderators and who the user behind them? There was some kind of banbot, the camel spider, etc.

Then never tell me you love me again because I don't want your love all over my face. You sicko.

Heh, I'm not really sure. Some of it probably comes from a fear of being banned again, but I'm also a lot more mature nowadays (although I'm not sure why).

The Geno cult started in a virtual chat room called Habbo Hotel, moved on to Furcadia, a virtual chat room for loving yiffing furries, then back to habbo and massive suicide.

The Counting thread started by Lowtax was started in March 2000, and grew to 1300 posts in 3 days before it was blocked by lowtax, never reaching the number 1337 which it was intended to do.

The entertainment weekly stuff was earlier this year, when we stole an idea from fark who pushed wil wheaton and the Gord as entertainers of the year on EW's Man of the year poll. we quickly overcame them with voting scrips (voting Rich "Lowtax" Kyanka), EW responded by hiding the poll and making up the winners, SLUTS sent about 300 mails to all the EW staff, and we got a mention on their poll page wishing us good luck next year.

And Kyanka is not a Norwegian last name as mentioned in this thread.

Everyting else has been answered satisfactory, espesially by our sunshine moderator.

My question:
why does everyone everybody (I am guessing) before 12-00 have forum veteran as their title? and when did this happen? and who did it?

forum veteran is a title you get if you've been around for 15 months or longer. They've been doing it for a while.

I thought you becoming a moderator was part of Lowtax's PROJECT: GO AWAY week since so many people said they'd leave if you ever became a mod.

Forum Veteran means you've been registered a really long time and you deserve a special title.
