Something Awful and FriendsThe rollercoaster trainwreck embarassing downfall of a Web 1.0 giant.

  1. Ironically that was back in the days of SA where you could piss everyone off, but as long as you didn't break any of the (actually well-defined) rules, the mods would grumble and complain and be unable to do anything.

    That's what made TT so great, he was skirting the edges of those rules the entire time he posted there but was rarely caught actually breaking them.

    Also, almost everyone thought TT was a gimmick, but he was SO consistent that nobody could ever catch him slipping, so there was no way to prove it. I have a lot of grudging respect for Toblerone as a proto-Internet shitposter.

  3. Haha Lowtax bannned all politics threads from GBS. Good fucking riddance, the people in them are the worst posters on somethingawful, and now they have to stick to D&D/C-Spam.

  7. The highest point of the TT saga wasn't even something that he did- someone managed to get Ron Paul to autograph a sign that said "I'm sold on purestrain gold!"

  8. That's a good rule and it should have been done ages ago. GBS politics threads just attract boring jackasses from all over the forums

  13. I don't have the post offhand, but someone actually did that already.

    Though for years Lowtax has been vocal about his dislike of the political forums in general.

  14. In earnest maybe 3 or 4 months ago, with a crescendo around the time of the pearl-clutching over children in detention. It's been kind of humming along for some time at a low level, but it was normally probations rather than bans.

  15. For all that though (and I agree with you statement) he sure let some loathsome r*tards run D&D and CSPAM, who catered to the absolute worst posters on the site

    edit: i should be specific, R Guyovich might be the worst mod of any forum I've ever seen

  18. As we talk about TT it does stand out the creativity that can happen when the mods tolerate gimmcks that try to skirt the line. This openly banning for "your awful and I don't like you"

  19. Idiots on Social Media in PYF is basically the lefty politics lite thread. Every post is fucking political and every poster seems to be a tranny. You legit get chain probated for saying trans women are raised differently than cis women and other such mild wrongthink.

    The only reason I still visit SA is the r/relationship thread but goons somehow ruin laughing at exceptional redditor's.

  20. Lowtax made a thread making fun of Youtube personalities getting burnt out in their 20s.

    It's as bitter and jealous as you'd think.
