didn’t Ozma make it bannable to post “dangling participles” or some other extremely dumb stupid English nerddork grammar nazi poo poo like that? actually I think she even did that more than once

It really is unbelievable how utterly loving insane Ozma was and how we all just kinda went with it because we thought her crazy rear end brain-diseased rules were part of the forums comedy experience, and it wasn’t until after she left for good that we finally all looked back and realized “holy loving gently caress WHY DID WE PUT UP WITH THIS BULLSHIT FOR SO LONG?”

Not really? Or if she was she changed her mind. Iirc she was the main driver behind gbs 2.0 where all the rules got turned off. I will see if I can find the old mod thread.

It's nice that SA had rules and barriers to entry during the peak lolcats period of online culture's development. They just aren't as necessary any more.

What kind of advanced math does it take to make it so that each version of GBS ranked worse than all other versions of GBS?

GBS 2.0 is a bit of a misnomer seeing as the previous rule heavy GBS was itself a response to an earlier version of GBS that was 50 hastily written copycat threads for each interesting thread usually with dumb catchphrases and verbose descriptions of someone making GBS threads their pants.

The PYF subforum used to have a crazy amount of rules once upon a time, maybe about a decade ago or so. A long, long list of rules that were broken up in categories & sub-rules


E: holy poo poo I still think of PYF as a "new" forum because I was around back when it was first splintered off from GBS but I just looked it up and it goes all the way back to 2005. There's probably some goons posting on the forums who were born in 2005.

It's funny you should mention that, when PYF was first started, like the first day or two, it just appeared as "a forum where you just post simple answers, NO loving DISCUSSIONS ALLOWED" and there was no mod at all. I think there was a very early campaign to have Scoots Magoo, then a GBS 1.0 superstar, named mod that ended up working. For that first day or two when there was no mod it was just an absolute free for all, and was kind of close in tone to what BYOB was when it first started.

On one hand, I'm really glad SA is loving nothing like absolute toilets like 4chan and reddit.

On the other hand, it is kind of ridiculous I keep getting probated for wishing to eat the flesh of every last cop in front of their wives and some random firefighter's child they're raising unknowingly as their own. Which is a perfectly reasonable position.

In conclusion, SA is a land of contrasts.

Cannibalism implies they're human or I'm the subterranean gutter species that evolved from the filth their bacterial ancestors were shat out of in cisterns of human poo poo, and I disagree on both points.

If I recall correctly he died on the table during some kind of back surgery. We all found out in the GBS Warhammer megathread where he was quite active.

Move to Papua New Guinea and find one the tribes that eat their dead.

Don't move to Germany and get someone to consent in writing to being killed and eaten. They will still charge you with murder.

The case you're thinking of didn't involve consent and IIRC it was a movie cameo and restaurant reviews.
