    Here I go again, just kind of pissed off how the people at Something Awful never update their shit. Fucking lame as internet comedy blogs that aren't funny, the rest of their crap is never updated like reviews which are actually worth reading. Like rants or blogs from hipster wanna-be 'internet comedy writers' or 'artists' or whatever they call themselves. Yeah that's right, you're a 'comedy' writer. By default then I should also be a comedy writer.

    Where else am I going to go to read shitty movie reviews about shitty movies? MST3K? Seriously I'm open to suggestions here. Or lame hentai games for that matter, or you know, bad porn. I don't know it just pisses me off and their writers are that fucking lazy.

    Not to mention who the fuck pays money to post on a forum? Seriously. Who pays money to join a forum they're probably going to get banned from anyway??

    Know your meme sounds about right, at least Something Awful has somewhat entertaining articles even if they were written over 10 years ago.

    I was banned in 2002 for flaming some 25 year old who was bragging about his 17 year old girlfriend. The whole board attacked me to defend their right to fuck high school juniors without shame. Some faggot goth mod decided to trade words with me and ended up delivering a swift hammer. I never gave that fucking shithole site another penny. Lowtax ain't even funny, only good thing to ever come from that place is Jeff K.

    I've been on the SA forums for almost four years now. People get banned because the idea of contributing content to a thread is too much for them.

    SA's a great forum if you're not a social internet reject. Worth 10bux.

    At least some of their poster made those awesome tribute arts to Tails Gets Trolled.

    But seriously, 10 bucks for a membership? And I thought NeoGAF registering system was that awkward.

    The forums generate a lot of content, most of it is entertaining. It's nearly cancer-free because it's so heavily moderated, and the account fee. Plus, members are alright people. One of my drawings is actually up on a member's wall, and I've had interesting things sent to me by other goons. I've traded paraphernalia through the mail with one goon. A lot of creative, helpful artist frequent it, too.

    I know what you are saying. Facts, like queers are hard for some people to accept.

    Fact: Lowtax is an internet drama queen and should be shoveling manure for a living.

    uhh ok your point being?

    I don't give two shits about any site owner. Zaiger could be a child raping adult baby diaper fetishist corprophagiac for all I care, I'd still come to this site. Just because any site owner is a fuckwit doesn't automatically dictate that the rest of the members are.

    The point is you are financially enabling him.

    I loved the old content, like the horrors of porn, the hentai game reviews and the leonard crabs articles. For some reason the site hasn't been all that funny since 2005 or something though.

    oh my god that ten dollars I spent four years ago is finally coming back to haunt me. You're right. I've seen the error of my ways. Let me be a tool and give a shit about you and your petty concerns.

    Your ten dollars is irrelevant. There are quality posters there who should be elsewhere. That is what makes the forum marketable. I support a mass exodus and Lowtax's financial ruin. Or you can be a tool and let him continue to eat.

    Oh, well, best of luck with that.

    Yep, I use the edit feature. Apparently I'm not quick enough to beat your ravenous need to prove me wrong.

    The only thing I have ever seen from Something Awful was the Cobra After Action Reports, which are somewhat amusing.

    No way I would pay for anything on the internet though.

    Actually, yes, if the person who created a forum is a fuckwit, then it wouldn't be hard to believe that most of the other people who posted there are also fuckwits. I mean that isn't the case for everyone know, but if there are people there sucking his cock to ensure they don't get raped well...

    I for one think there is a better way to make money though like selling shit, not selling access to a forum. Not to mention I would've guessed that most people would be banned for contributing content, not the other way around lol.

    In all serious, banning someone for being a troll on a troll forum (which IMO, that seems like what it seems like, unless it's just banning for mild disagreements which is even more retarded) is like, banning someone for talking about anime on an anime forum.
