Normally I don't make aesthetic criticisms in other peoples' homes, but that rug looks like a beaver exploded. If meat is murder, then that rug is at least a severe beating.

This is one situation where a butt with some cushion for the pushin' was needed.

well it seems like in those 20 years of running a website he never learned how to run a business or how to code, so im not really sure what applicable skills this guy even has.

He is pretty great at ignoring his issues and blaming others after things come to a boil.

That same con artist also said he needed $14k a month or whatever it was to maintain the Something Awful forums.

Just think: if he had actually paid someone to develop and maintain them, he could have made that true!

Pimpcasso posted:

Jeff said registrations and avs cover the cost of the forums each month

They donít cover gtr leases though

They cover the current cost of hosting—with as many corners cut as possible—with very little left over for part-time development/maintenance. Jeffrey mentioned it in one of his earlier announcements, but those hosting costs will be increasing as we undo some of the disasters that make up the frightening state of affairs Lowtax let the forums infrastructure (and code) become.

I liked the videos where Lowtax and Shmorky made fun of bad computer games, but refused to give him money because I got screwed over the couple times I tried to buy SA merch. Like I was absolutely obsessed with Something Awful in my early 20s and all he had to do was not be an absolute dipshit at business or beat women.

I recall back in 2005(?) Lowtax was invited to a university to do a talk about running the forums and the internet in general. I think it was a pretty good talk and I watched it on youtube last year when everything went pearshaped. It has aged, of course, but I think its message is still solid as he describes how people with similar interests gravitate to each other, forming echo chambers, and what you can do as a forums owner to prevent them.

I don't know if he was a wife abuser back then. I know he was an rear end in a top hat, but he was our rear end in a top hat.
