A public service anouncement.

From SomethingAwful.com, on Friday, January 16th.

I respect these things, demand that they be afforded their rights under the law, and then I turn to virtually everyone reading this and I say "let's fucking get them!" As long as they can hide in their IRC rooms, message boards, and websites they can shield themselves from perspective. That's where every single one of us has to come in, actively pursuing an aggressive and unwavering dialogue with each of these groups that we encounter. Don't turn your eyes from their websites, spam their guestbook with a thousand repetitions of "HORRRRRRRRRRSECOCK" displayed in 72 point red letters. Invade their message boards and tell them how detestable they are. Upload insulting illustrations to their art sites. They will draw in on themselves and ossify, while any who might be lured in to their clutches will see the horde clamoring at the gates and turn away.

This is the sort of activity we have always advocated here at Something Awful; the sort of juvenile behavior that I am honestly proud to support. I hope this piece has given you some insight as to why I think it's more than just an amusing diversion.
- Zack "Geist Editor" Parsons


For some time, I've defended SomethingAwful. I've always said things like, "Only a few of the thousands of people that go to SA are actually spam message boards, demolish guest books, and so on. There're just stupid kids, and they'll get bored and grow out of it. Besides, the rest of the people there are cool enough to compensate, if what a few of my friends tell me. Hey, Photoshop Phriday is cool, right?" "A lot of furs are just overreacting. Persecution complex; they need to just relax." "Most furs would agree with what is said about furs on the SA message board. (See previous)"

I'd like to take this chance to apologize. I didn't know what the farg I was talking about. They (or at least a considerable, vocal minority) are self-rightous, pretentious, juvenile, knee-jerk neoconformists, and evidently, a good portion of the editors at Something Awful are encouraging all of the more foul behaviour we have seen from these people.

If you or one of your loved ones frequents SA, please, encourage them not to fall into this "Let us ride forth and cleanse yonder Internet, comrades!" mindtrap.

OR, IF YOU PREFER: This is the coalition... to ban coalitions!... XD
