Why would I not call attention to something this good? Someone has spent 40 real world dollars so far to yell at me about youtube and that owns. Don't be such a weenie

I can beat that, someone has given me 6 avatars in the last ~48 hours. Probably gonna get another one for mentioning it so I hope it's funny.

Two points that get forgotten that are the most ridiculous out of the whole event, first the trouble makers were trying to convice Jeffery that goatman posts in fyad were some sort of nazi reference. Secondly, a racist avatar was bought for Fluffdaddy as punishment for trying to clamp down on their antics and celebrated in their discord.

For all their woke talk about being super progressive they loving turned immediately on anyone, poc or trans, the moment they didnt back the party line.

Like many frothing at the mouth leftist/socialist groups they basically instituted a purity test of "do you agree 100%" and if the answer was no then you were a Nazi ally.

Let’s knock off the avatar slap fights and get back to sagas and shitposters of old instead of current drama, please.

I don’t think anyone has ever gotten better mileage out of an av change than the “furiously jerking it to anime porn” one anyway.

Hey if you know any good stories feel free to post 'em because most of the sagas that I know that haven't come up much are the bad kind.

Many of the greatest goons have been fat, unbalanced, lazy losers. We should consider these traits a virtue.

Are you talking the thread he made about goons being too self-deprecating and he was really tired of people talking about how they were the worst? Because that one flopped pretty hard, as I recall.

His continual whining about how Something Awful had lost a nebulous sense of "community" is extremely funny in retrospect.

Here's the thread. Sadly, archives are required to view it, but here's a summary:

Koalas March posted:

Beyonce worked harder at the Super Bowl than you did on those photoshops. Yeah she's making a grimace but who gives a gently caress? She was working her rear end off. Oh no! A woman of color looks stupid in 6 out of 200 photos. Better make a thread about it. Do you post photoshops of Michelle Obama on Freep, too?

She got roasted by goons including an admin:

The Finn posted:

Shut up you absolute loving idiot

Then The Finn told everyone to shut up and post photoshops on pain of probation. A few pages later:

Koalas March posted:

Just popping in to say I LOVE my custom title. Idk what I did to piss someone off so much (with a single post!) that they'd pay to change it, but you rock!! Clearly I am doing something right on these forums.

(USER WAS PUT ON PROBATION FOR THIS POST)

I think this must've been her "Trump humiliated by Obama for birther poo poo at a celebrity gala" moment regarding the forums, so to speak.

It really would make a lot of sense if Guy Mann was sticking around buying dumb red text avatars for people. He's still reporting posts on the "...of SCIENCE!" account on a pretty regular basis, as we've covered in this thread before.

That reminds me, I wonder if anyone's added up how much money Seraph84 has spent on reregs.

I forget if it was Seraph but at least some of the constant reregs just chargeback so the forums never got anything.

According to Lowtax fwiw though so who knows.

I mean he's not entirely wrong, it does get a bit old sometimes. People constantly talking poo poo about themselves are exhausting, especially if they're actually alright people.

Self-deprecating humor is funny (e.g. Rodney Dangerfield's act), but sometimes goons really get into the self-deprecation, and forget about the humor part, and that is exhausting.

Rodney Dangerfield sucks and I could do a way better job being self-deprecating than that hack fraud. I would whip his goddamned rear end with the type of great poo poo my brain comes up with, oh boo hoo you get no respect well guess what buddy I get all the respect I want which is none. He's nothing to me. Pathetic.

All of the things in the LSD in the catacombs copy/pasta happened, though the A/C hadoukens part was not "I'm a bad bird parent, and killed my bird," but "My bird is going to die freezing, and I went too far in the other direction, because birds gave bi concept of preserving their own life"

Someone was trying to kick a heroine addiction, and the TCC mod told them that instead of counseling, they should try LSD.

The LSD thing was hilarious, but IMO it's also kind of funny that there is actually an ever-increasing amount of data being generated these days showing that psychedelics can actually be pretty effective at treating addiction
