"Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats." H.L. Mencken
Because I feel like it, for one thing. Actually, the honest-to-God reason why is that Cracked destroyed a community of friends in an effort to defend it's resident drunk. A drunk that went too far by mocking and deriding the comedy that his own website employs, and it's readers enjoy. Hell, his own name is a pun, yet according to him, anyone that likes puns is the scum of the earth.
I could go on, but that story is covered at length here and other places. The point that shocked and devastated everyone involved is, using one excuse, (a supposed death threat on his Facebook page), his buddy, Jason Pargin, (David Wong), used a scorched-earth approach and banned/deleted hundreds of commenters that had been faithful readers for years, in some cases.
And us commenters were a family. We knew each other, we laughed, joked, made intelligent witticisms and generally just enjoyed each other's company. Thrown to the winds by a "comedy" website that tries so hard to pull off a carefree, "look at us, we're funny!" attitude that has now been shown to be a facade.
To expose the truth, that simple. To tap the internet on the shoulder and say, "Look at this clusterfuck by Cracked.com, a "yuk,yuk comedy" site". Is this worth the outrage and hurt we feel? Or, is it time to apply Head On to our sore rectums and move on?"
I could go on, but I really don't care if some of you don't "get" it.
That's all that counts.
