This thread has been completely overhauled. I found out about the controversy less than a week ago, so I posted a thread with what I knew and hoped others would chip in, and they did. What I originally thought was a simple controversy turned out to be a massive group of spergs fighting a literal internet war against a YouTuber that makes Fallout content. I only added a few things to this, the vast majority of this OP has been written and researched by @nonnewtonian Thank you, good sir, for this spectacular shit-show.
The Autclave, a name coined by @nonnewtonian, is a subsection of Fallout puritans that are engaged in a full scale spergwar with a Fallout YouTuber by the name of Oxhorn, more on him in a bit. This group is led by Logical Phallusy/Thomas Beckett, his personality entirely showcased in this video.
Oxhorn is not a fan of people using his own words to make him look bad. He is confirmed to have taken down one channel over a video criticizing him and allegedly got another taken down for uploading old videos of his. He has hit another channel with multiple copyright strikes, nearly getting it shut down for posting a couple clips from his livestream and a video criticizing him.
The Legend of Erel Akman
Erel Akman was allegedly a YouTuber who reuploaded Oxhorn’s video of himself mocking a fat woman in an unflattering dress, his anti-pornography video, and a few other old videos that Ox had deleted from his channel. Oxhorn filed numerous copyright strikes against Erel Akman to get the videos and his channel removed, though not before people were able to download the offending videos and preserve them.
Oxhorn vs Logical Phallusy / Thomas Beckett
Thomas Beckett is someone who corrected Oxhorn on some mistakes he made in one of his videos. Oxhorn responded by shadowbanning him. Beckett retaliated with a nearly 2 hour video in which he rambled about Ox getting lore wrong, sucking up to Bethesda, and silencing critics.
The video would have remained in obscurity, since nobody has the time to listen to an angry Obsidiot wheeze over inane bullshit for two hours. But Oxhorn did the thing you’re not supposed to do when you want the Internet to ignore and forget something; he flagged the video for “bullying” and got it taken down.
Not long after the video was removed, the entire Logical Phallusy channel was taken down despite reportedly only receiving the one strike.
Beckett came back to Youtube with a new channel, Thomas Beckett. He released a follow up to the first video, going over the events of his original channel’s ban. In the video he shared emails sent to him by Youtube proving Oxhorn was the one behind getting his channel shut down over “bullying.”
Beckett also uploaded the video to MediaFire. There Oxhorn had it taken down for copyright infringement. Why he only went after the MediaFire upload and not the YouTube one is unknown.
Beckett would go on to reupload the fat chick mocking video. It was flagged for nudity and pornography, despite containing no nudity or pornographic content, and taken down. This was most likely the work of Oxhorn as he desperately wants that video to stay off the Internet and has gotten other reuploads taken down as well. Beckett took a screen capture of the flagged video, showing it had been up for less than a week and had less than 300 views before it was flagged. Oxhorn’s name was nowhere to be found in the title, description, or tags. This indicates Ox is keeping tabs on anyone who speaks out against him.
Oxhorn has recently hit Beckett with another DMCA copyright takedown over a clip from one of his “Scotch and Smoke Rings” livestreams.
Oxhorn vs SinonMercer
In 2018 SinonMercer uploaded clips from Oxhorn’s livestreams to YouTube. Allegedly these clips were of Oxhorn’s reactions to people asking questions about Logical Phallusy’s channel being taken down. Oxhorn filed copyright claims to get them taken down.
With two strikes against him SinonMercer was in danger of losing his channel. One more and Youtube would pull the plug. He released a third video, “Oxhorn Exposed,” this time adding his own audio commentary and more editing so the video would be considered within Fair Use.
This didn’t stop Oxhorn from filing yet another copyright claim within three days of the video being posted. Youtube, in a rare moment of clarity, recognized the video met Fair Use and rejected the claim.
SinonMercer still took down the video and stopped making Oxhorn videos all together.
If you’re wondering what got people riled up about Oxhorn in the first place, even before he started shadowbanning people and getting channels and videos wiped, we have to go back a couple years.
In July of 2017 Oxhorn uploaded a video going over the Sunset Sarsaparilla sidequest in the game Fallout New Vegas.
During the video he makes a number of mistakes regarding Fallout lore. The most important one for the purpose of this story is when he came across some office folders that had both the Sunset Sarsaparilla logo and a “BoS History File” sticker on it. He attributed this error to FONV developer Obsidian reusing assets from Fallout 3. Given the time crunch Obsidian was under to make the game, this wasn’t an unreasonable assumption to make. In reality though, this error was caused by one of his mods and the BoS sticker doesn’t appear in the vanilla game.
This mistake caused the Obsidian fans in his audience to lose their fucking minds. To them this couldn’t possibly have been a mistake, it was surely slander Oxhorn was intentionally spreading to destroy Obsidian for...reasons.
This lead to the creation of a group of A-logs I like to call “The Autclave.”
Oxhorn has done many things worthy of criticism and mockery. However, there is a group of individuals out there who aren’t satisfied with simply laughing at Ox and calling him out on his bullshit. They obsessively spin everything he’s ever done to make him look like the worst human being on the planet.
It’s not enough that Oxhorn creepily filmed a woman without her knowledge. No, he must creepily film underage girls without their knowledge.
It’s not enough that Oxhorn says porn is bad but goes out of his way to mod naked titties into his games. No, he must be a sex offender with virtual rape dungeons.
It’s not enough that Oxhorn is a Bethesda stan who sometimes makes mistakes in his videos. No, he must be getting paid by Bethesda to take down Obsidian through some kind of years long covert propaganda campaign.
It’s not enough that Oxhorn is greedy and happens to hold conservative beliefs. No, he must be trying to amass enough wealth to bring about an alt-right dystopian future.
There are several noteworthy individuals in Oxhorn’s growing army of detractors. They cannot speak about him without shitting themselves. They have yet to understand why nobody takes them seriously.
Logical Phallusy / Thomas Beckett
Patient Zero. After getting his Logical Phallusy channel struck down he came back under a new name, Thomas Beckett. He is understandably bitter towards Oxhorn for trying to silence him and getting his old channel and videos deleted. However, he has gone past the point of being reasonably pissed off to being full blown Mad On The Internet. He likes to accuse Oxhorn of slander the game company Obsidian by saying they screwed up Fallout lore while simultaneously slandering Oxhorn by calling him a sex offender and insinuating he is a pedophile.
Beckett has recently come to the Farms to defend his positions, doubling down on his belief that Oxhorn is a sex offender despite having zero evidence and sharing his belief that Oxhorn is plotting to take over the world and enact some kind of alt-right dystopian future. He also is convinced Oxhorn is attempting to get his dox so he can send hit men out to kill him.

After nearly losing his channel to Oxhorn’s censorship SinonMercer took down all videos about Ox and has stopped making videos about him entirely. He used to get into Internet slap fights with other Youtubers alongside Fandom Tribal, another member of the Autclave we’ll get into later.
In DMs with someone named Razorprimed Sinon apologized for working with Fandom Tribal and said he took down the Oxhorn Exposed video because he didn't want to become a center for drama.

The one behind the current flare up of anti-Oxhorn sentiment. Shit-lord has put out a number of videos on Oxhorn, his most recent getting a fair bit of traction.
He has pointed out when the anti-Oxhorn crowd starts pulling shit, though he does stick to the claims that Oxhorn slandered Obsidian and films underage girls without their consent to make fun of them. So far he has been spared from takedown attempts.

Rogue, Internet Man
Rogue has dedicated his channel entirely to Oxhorn. He wants to do the "cartoon crossed arms avatar" style but is seemingly too cheap/broke to pay someone to draw an avatar in various poses for him, so instead he just uses pictures of himself.
His first video was an hour long expose on Oxhorn in which he compares Oxhorn to skinhead white nationalists, says Oxhorn must want atheists to die based on an old WoW Machinima about religion, and largely recycles content already covered by the likes of Thomas Beckett, Shit-lord Builds, and SinonMercer.
Don't let his uploading six videos and nearly two hours of content about Oxhorn in the span of two weeks fool you, he is totally not obsessed.
Edit: He deleted all his accounts the day after his name was added to this thread. It is currently unknown if his decision was related to his name being on the Farms, or if there is another reason. But he bailed.

Niko Bellic / NikoBellicSA / Inquisitor NG & Evelyn Beatrice Hall / quagmireforsale
Niko came into the spotlight in late December of 2018. He leaked a screencap of alleged DMs between himself and DramaAlertDMs where DramaAlertDMs said an unnamed Youtuber had offered them a five figure bribe to stop Keemstar from putting out a video on them.
When the screencap was brought to Keemstar’s attention by quagmireforsale/Evelyn Beatrice Hall, Keemstar thought Evelyn was saying the DMs were hers. He responded with a video showing DMs Evelyn had been sending him with information on Oxhorn. This lead to people assuming the unnamed bribing Youtuber from the Niko DMs was Ox. At some point during this confusion, Fandom Tribal posted screencaps from his Discord and exposed Niko for plotting a gay op.
It turned out he was going to edit a livestream clip where Oxhorn was duped into giving a shout out to “Nick Gerz” to make it sound like he was using racial epithets. In an unrecorded voice call with Shit-lord Builds, Niko confessed to the Discord gay op but stood by the DramaAlertDMs screencap being real. Keemstar maintains the Niko DMs never happened and the screencap is faked.
Oxhorn says he couldn’t have bribed Drama Alert because he was collecting boulders away from his office.

NOTE: At some point between January and April of 2019, YouTube took down Fandom Tribal’s channel. The exact reason was reportedly not given though I suspect it was either due to reuploading Oxhorn’s content or his constant fighting with others. I did not archive all his content when I originally wrote this OP so you’ll have to take my word on this. Sorry for failing in my duties as a Kiwi.
Perhaps the worst of the lot. Tribal is a hardcore Obsidian autist who REEEEs at anyone with anything remotely positive to say about Bethesda games or Oxhorn, calling them Jews and Bugthestards. He unironically refers to himself as “a true Fallout fan, that pledges to bring Bugthestards to justice.”
He’s involved in a number slap fights with other Youtube users and loves to post videos of himself “owning” them in Youtube comment sections. Unless he gets SinonMercer to help him, these videos are pure text with zero narration. His editing skills are so poor that his music and the music of whatever video he’s responding to clash together.
When not reuploading videos created by others in the anti-Oxhorn squad he obsesses over some guy named ChewChewTrain (who he calls JewJewTrain) and another guy named TJAY. All sides accuse each other of sockpuppeting and shadowbanning and false flagging. Trying to make heads or tails of what these people are arguing over is a nightmare.
Tribal attempted another reupload of Oxhorn’s fat shaming video. It too was struck down, this time for copyright infringement.
But it looks like the trauma of Internet warfare was too much for poor Tribal. Sometime in 2018, he posted a suicide note to his channel description. Always a true and honest Obsidiot, he ended it with a fuck you to Bethesda fans.
Semper fi, brave soldier. Your 2019 Twitter posts from beyond the grave do not fall on deaf ears.If you're reading this, I am dead. Real life problems. To all the people that hate me: Congratulations, you won. Celebrate, be happy!
Believe it or not, I have given this channel to someone. He'll decide what to do with this channel now.
Lay it to rest? Make a video, make more videos? I don't know, I don't care, but I won't be alive to see what they'll do with it.
To all the people that respected me:
True Fallout fan who pledges to combat any and all Bugthestards and fanboys that lack reason.
Because if my time in the internet taught me one thing...
It's that butthurt Bugthestards...... butthurt Bugthestards never changes…

One of the newest members of the Autclave. What TK lacks in A-logging and sperging he more than makes up for in jerking off the drama for every last shekel. In the past six days he shit out five videos rambling about Oxhorn, each littered with ads. Ironically one of his complaints against Oxhorn is that he needlessly stretches out his content and “sucks the YouTube algorithm dry.”

Cats was a recent addition. They spent all hours of the day tweeting about how much they hate Oxhorn, repeating the same points over and over and over and over. They would hunt down month old tweets from Oxhorn fans to scream at them for liking his content.
I initially thought Cats was a kid. Something about the way they wrote and the toy pictures they posted screamed “I’m 12 years old.” But after doing some more digging through their Twitter and finding references to mid-2000’s media like Crazy Frog, Rickrolling and The George Lopez Show I am sad to announce this person is more than likely an adult.
Cats was recently suspended from Twitter.

Ferris Head / @HeadFerris
Another new addition to the Autclave. They like getting into spats with Oxhorn's fans. Relatively small fry at the moment, but shows potential.
