Oh shit, posted this at the exact same time. Sorry for double posting but this needs a thread to be honest. I also didn't know the dox was posted to YT but I knew I thought was floating aroundThere was a group that went full tismo over a childs game
It ultimately led to a 14 year old girl getting her chanel removed and """"doxing""" herself to them.
The Stevens universe community also bullied a kid with terminal cancer for getting to see the show earlyNot directly lolcow related, but I also remember the shitshow that came about within the Steven Universe fandom when some chick attempted suicide because some assholes pushed her to the breaking point over a fucking show about lesbian space rocks. Not to mention, the show’s just ended, and this, for better or worse, is a part of its legacy now.
Similar events such as the August Ames incident and Zoe Quinn driving some poor schmuck to suicide herself would later crop up, but the SU thing stands out to me in particular because it’s a shining example of just how shit fandoms in general are. Which is ironic considering that the person in this case wasn’t even successful with her suicide.
God that is as depressing as fuck.Something that happened a long time ago...
I remember watching some of Terry Davis’ videos and streams, What he did was impressive but he was so batshit insane it was hysterical; and then it stopped being funny. I think watching his fall changed me fundamentally, because he made it seem like we’re all so close to the edge of insanity... After all, he used to be normal. Perhaps he was even a genius, until his slide into madness, Who knows what it takes, genes? A bump on the head in the wrong way?
Is it better to desperately live on knowing you’re helplessly derange, or to welcome the sweet embrace of eternal sleep? His last video was cryptic, but I think he was lucid in the end. It hurts to think he stepped in front of that train but maybe that was the first decision he made as himself in years. It’s impossible to know with certainty the circumstance of his death, but I hope he finally took control of his life as his last choice alive.
His saga was the only time I’ve been sad on the internet, and I’ll pour one out for him tonight, Rest in peace, Terry A. Davis
Don't be sad for the Web 1.0 giant you lost. Be happy for the lolcow you've gained.And all of his cuckoldry has been so immense that it revealed how his persona, originally thought to be a comedic exaggeration, was instead built on the bitter impotence of a man destined to always suck and fail. So dramatic is his suckitude that it retroactively ruins every piece of entertainment that he has ever created, excepting only the things that are ironically funny at his expense.
Oh I've been keeping an eye on the AGLC daily for the last week.Oh shit, posted this at the exact same time. Sorry for double posting but this needs a thread to be honest. I also didn't know the dox was posted to YT but I knew I thought was floating around
the whole KoP saga was very fun for a while, culminating in a fantastic spergout.
