Being familiar with 4Chan & YTMND only in the broadest senses of them being pervert hang outs with obscure political leanings & the distillation of everything wrong with Family Guy, I would be hard pressed to tell you that, of late, this forum is any different.
Once, years ago, this place was of gigh quality. A close knit community comfortable with themselves and eachother enough so that they could mercilously mock one another and any passing poster with only the occasional amusing tantrum. The core of this group were Rog, his wife Doops & their friends from Virginia, this expanded out to a second tier of those they had met through the forum and had intermingled with the group resulting in real life meetups & other fun internet hijinks. The next wave of forum members, my wave, saw this group and really wanted to fit in, but the satuation of idiocy was already too high for many of the original members and over time they have left into that oddly scary void known as the real world. After that, most everyone that came saw the pale imitations of the originals that me & my kind portrayed and they attempted their own skewed forms, thus bastardizing this place further.
Now, with the recent implementation of the forum/main site merge we see the next stage of development. A scary & unchecked influx of commenters with no interest beyond leaving their own shit smear at the bottom of a humour article whose meaning that they no doubt failed to grasp.
Why is this place better than 4Chan & YTMND? Once, we were Mockers.
