thread went from funny jokes to returning goons getting upset at the jokes to intense furry/monstergirl debate to qcs handwringing in just 150 pages, and now nothing is funny or satisfying and the whole thing just feels annoying. truly a fitting memorial to richad

I think this is probably right, and for the best.

we may open it again later.

be well goons, i'm glad I get to shitpost with you.

I have been sitting for hours debating whether or not to disclose this, and I feel like it's something I do need to get off of my chest.
Frankly, I'm tried of being quiet. I've mostly had to stay quiet for years about things happening behind the scenes. I've held things inside so long and so hard my chest physically hurt the same way it is now.

I considered not sharing this out of respect for Rich's parents and sister, but after thinking on the incredibly vitriolic wall of text Rich's Mother sent to me this morning, saying upon many other things, that his blood is on my hands, I need to share it to regain some sense of control over what's taken place in the past 48 hours.

Yesterday I recieved a divorce ruling that would help me and my daughter stay in our home in Canada and allow me to provide a good life for her as well as pay back numerous debts that had accrued during the past two years when I was receiving $350 a month in child support.

In the divorce ruling the judge found that Rich had willfully spent down the martial fund, confirmed his treatment of me was Domestic Violence and put together a plan to pay for the attorney fees etc. He would still retain custody settled on previously in mediation. He was due to get our daughter for Christmas.

An hour later I was contacted by my attorney who informed me that Rich had shot himself earlier in the morning.

So. There it is.
His other ex and I got to tell our children that their father died without saying goodbye to them, or that he loved them, or to my knowledge, left a note for them.

If you've made it this far thank you for giving me space to let this go so I know longer have to hold onto it.

Thank you for sharing. I hope you and your daughter are going to be okay. Please reach out if you need anything. I'm very sorry you're going through this.

RIP lowtax, but gently caress you for being a piece of poo poo, but also thanks for making a cool website that influenced internet culture and humor for decades I guess, but really that has more to do with the community that formed there. So a real thank you to everyone here, its been entertaining and enlightening.

I still have every volume of the YTMND soundtrack because there's a hell of a lot of genuinely good songs on it and I am not ashamed to admit that :colbert:
I managed to get Tunak Tunak Tun played at my high school dance and coordinated half a dozen friends to do the dance with me, it was really fun and people were initially like "wtf" but surprisingly got into it

I handed the DJ a burned CD, he popped it into a personal player and listened to it for a bit, a smile crept across his face and he was like "yeah, let's do this, gently caress it"

a bunch of mp3s on my computer are still the YTMND soundtrack versions. Invincible, Harder Better Faster Stronger, and Transa - Supernova

Dude could've left this plane with a pretty great legacy, truth be told. Alas, it seems every real life decision he made was out of spite to someone else, up to the final one. Just utter sadness for everyone around him, when he was both alive and dead, and it was all so unnecessary.

Also more than ever thanks to Jeffrey (of YOSPOS) because I'm guessing if he didn't step up to take the leash, this place would have been a nightmare to salvage out of this I'm sure.

Considering the cloud of bitter ex-SA groups in existence it's horribly inevitable that his kids will need some long term help in dealing with both this and what went before. I would just wish them peace and the chance to find closure. Both my parents died before I turned 20 but natural causes (cardiac arrest, stroke) aren't the same thing.
