Im OK with this, in fact I can just move this thread to the Lolcow forum if everyone else is fine with it.Could I just make a general lolcow thread for him? Crib whatever is in this thread and the SS threads? I've been following his antics for years.
He deserves more exposure
I'd rather make a new OP I can post it here before hand. There is so much more material that I have never mentioned that is definitely hilarious and noteworthy
Give me like an hour
@Smutley made the original KF thread in the ADF subforum but this particular rabbit gloryhole goes back far deeper, back to 2002 when he registered an account under the name Fire on the Something Awful forums. He was wildly mocked there for his extremist tendencies and love of underage anime, which were also documented on their unofficial sister website Something Sensitive (formerly TNE, formerly SASS). Then his dox dropped and people discovered just how things were crawling under that rock.
But first, a bit of background
Part 1: The Birth of a Cow
Back when Lowtax was not too busy downing Ambien and drinking Barefoot Wine to care about anything else, Something Awful used to review amongst other things Hentai games, and at least tried to make humorous reviews of them. One of the games they mocked is called Princess Maker 2. That's when Fire came to prominence on something awful. He couldn't tolerate that Something Awful would make fun of his rape simulator which featured a 10 year old naked girl in a slave collar, and posted a long angry diatribe to defend the game. He had already started to make a name for himself as a grating retard in their political subforum, but he shot to fame with this one and it ended up being one of the most read and mocked threads in the history of SA.
Thankfully, and you will see over and over, there ain't no shame in Richard's game so he kept posting under the same name.
Around 2007, Something Awful created a subforum called Laissez's Faire in order to herd all of the Ron Paul supporters away from the political threads in D&D, but it soon became the playing ground of SA's Marxist contingent and their broken brain friends. That's where Fire really started to shine. He went from being a loudmouth with retarded political opinions to calling for the death of (Jewish) bankers, (Jewish) soldiers and (Jewish State of) Israel, with a glorification of terror groups and suicide bombings and how we needed a glorious revolution in America where all the (Jewish) traitors would be put up against the wall. Even in LF, he was known for being a particularly strident anti-semite and regularly calling for violence. He thought Obama was so far to the right that he would open death camps
Fire cures Bigots said:Obama is going to have this guy gunned down in the street if he isn't made to disappear or tortured like Obama did to Bradly Manning.Fire cures Bigots said:Obama, democrats, I know you're data mining this conversation so let me just say that is it. I am done with you. I have lost all respect for you. You don't even get to be the lesser of two evils. This was your idea and I am done. My respect for you can't get any lower. At least with republicans I know where I stand. You are two faced sell outs who have abandoned everything I originally liked about you. Last election I cast a protest vote for the greens but went straight d down the ticket. Fuck that. I'm not voting for you anything but "revolution" from now on.Fire cures Bigots said:Personally I refuse to make that choice and want to just vote for burning it all down.
LF closed when one of its posters threatened to murder a politician and the Secret Services visited Lowtax personally. Those are the people who thought Fire was a bit excessive with his constant calls for revolution, violence and beheading the rich.
After LF closed and he graduated University in Education, most people thought that Ricky had somehow calmed down a little bit. He managed to look normal, have a steady job, run a tabletop roleplaying weekly meeting, it really looked like it might have been a phase, and aside from his PM2 debacle no real indication that he had any underage proclivities. He looked like he surprisingly had all of shit together, despite the many posts he made about having sadbrains and depression:
He probably would have been thought of as an otherwise was a pretty milquetoast guy posting extreme left opinions on the web and liked creepy anime at some point. He had stopped posting as much on Something Awful, at least not as gratingly as he used to.
That wasn't good enough for the good folks at Something Sensitive. They decided to drop the doxx on him. And well turns out it was all a veneer that hid a ton of really crazy and disturbing things. And shortly after that, the veneer on his apparent normalness cracked, and all the crazy came out. He got fired after a letter was sent to work detailing all the crazy shit that was unhearted (more on that in part 2) and he just crumbled.
This is Richards, 5 years after:
and that's him on a good day, at night, well...
Twitter marxists, male feminists and Elliot Rodgers convinced him he was in fact a pretty princess (and registered here as @LightningPrincess in fact) and he decided to transition. His fiancee tried to get him psychological help but then just dumped him because he wouldn't listen. He started to buy wigs, decided he was poly moved in with two middle-aged trannies in a shack without running water or electricity because, well, why not? He later decided to move from Florida to Chicago to shack up with Nephielle, another SA tranny (that probably deserves its own thread), they got engaged after a whirlwind romance of like 2 weeks, started a poly relationship with another man in a dress 2 weeks later, then broke up after 2 months. He tried to get legal advice on how to sue a woman's shelter for not letting him in, then decided that he would cozy up to as many crazies, including ADF (how he came up on KF's radar), Rika, Neko and half a dozen others. It's like he's using Encyclopedia Dramatica as his new tinder.
Oh, and somehow he's now just started a job teaching teenagers in a Chicago school
