    Admittedly, a lot of SA goons are close to the 4Chan cuck-boys. So yeah, LOTS of dumb fuckery mixed in with some good things like the creation of Slender Man, Chuck Norris memes. I had some giggles.

    I'm going to add Consequence of Sound to my list.

    They've gotten pretty list/ranking heavy, which just isn't my interest, but I still read the "news".

    Speaking of 4chan. The place was always a wretched hive, but there were definitely parts of it that were either too obscure or too slow moving for the trolls to bother with, letting lots of small communities and fandoms pop up there that didn't survive anywhere else. That's not really the case anymore, the slime is spread pretty evenly now.

    Yes, the Slender Man creation certainly was part of the "coolness."

    I don't know if it was ever considered "cool or good" but I used to post in the DC forums. It got kind of hostile after a while and they canceled it.

    While "Good" or "Cool" will never be the same thing for everyone, I always had to give them points for that they had a "Wildstorm" sub-forum after buying the imprint and that they left the "Vertigo" sub-forum up for a while after it might not have been justifiable.

    Minor points off for when they dumped all of the Vertigo comics into one big "General Discussion" section.

    That was a mess.

    the old DC Forums were always a garbage fire.

    Early on they weren’t.

    Anyone remember the old Newsarama forums?

    They still seem to have that, but it is not like I come here for their articles.

    Seems more like their userbase migrated over to the Outhouse.

    It's basically Stormfront Mk II now with all their racism and anti-semitism.

    In a subset of CBR, YABS.

    Memory failing here but did they (the forums) have an Off Topic area called, "The Gutters"?

    I'm talking about the Photoshop threads where they stuck Slender_Man into things like (in)famous B&W pictures like the Elvis getting drafted into the Army or the Hindenburg tragedy.

    The Slender_Man stabbing was just dumb fuckery.

    I was there. I enjoyed it at the time. Bruce Wayne is right, though. The Outhouse started out as a place where people tired of the garbage at the Newsarama site could go to talk comics. But the trolls came over too, and both sites went downhill.

    Are we even allowed to complain about CBR? I thought since the accounts purge and restart they didn't allow negative comments on here.
    The Gypsies had no home. The Doors had no bass.

    Does our reality determine our fiction or does our fiction determine our reality?

    Whenever the question comes up about who some mysterious person is or who is behind something the answer will always be Frank Stallone.
