1. This may be funny to some, not funny to others. I expect a lot of upset people tomorrow.
2. Try not to get too offended. I'm just giving you the heads up.
3. I'm not taking any "legal action", so don't start that. To my knowledge, what they've done is legal. I'm tied up here. Sorry.

As an avid fan of Final Fantasy I never go outside or socialize with anyone. I love all my level 99 characters with maxed stats and all the super special weapons and that one summon that takes roughly four days to get. My playtime is at 426 hours and 7 minutes.

How did they know? xD

Damn, that's hilarious.

Judging from their attitudes, I'd say that they don't understand our humour. What I mean is - we here at EoFF have perfected our sarcasm over the years. In fact, our hilarious witticisms and unbelievably clever insults are just too funny for these 'Something Awful' morons.

You can't just stroll into EoFF, take a few screenshots and start declaring 'this' and 'that' all over the place. Oh, no. For example, they think BoB is a stupid newbie who shouldn't be a moderator. They also think Mik is a pervert. Worst of all - they think I'm a 300 pound fat slob who sits in his room playing Final Fantasy all day long.

Or maybe they're just having a little joke. ;)

Ahh Spokker Jones. The dude has issues. I've had to deal with hime before. His AIM name is CardCaptorSpok, his livejournal used to be http://www.livejournal.com/users/spok, but after a bunch of us found out he was just an idiot Xena fanboi we bombarded his journal with nifty comments and he deleted his account. It's funny how a guy with nothing better to do than rummage through message board after message board thinks he's somehow better than the rest of us.

Oh my God, it's been a while since I laughed like that. That was great. I am so proud. I'd just like to thank everyone here that made this possible. I'm near considering paying that $9.95 just to get access to their forums as Loony BoB with my shiney Newbie title. But then I got told that their posts in the thread are pretty much full of "lol" and crap. The fact that my boob on head thread makes me proud.

Of course, putting an image onto the internet is making that image public - they can pretty much do what they want with it once you "give" it to them by posting it into a thread that you know is of public access.

I guess I'm in the minority of people who didn't find it funny at all. I'm all for poking fun at myself, but it actually has to be good material. They could have tried a little harder. The HOOTERS post was the only one that had anything going for it. Then again it's just some website so I shouldn't be expecting Daily Show-like material from it. The best part is that it gets publicity for the site, good or bad, all publicity is good publicity.

I've seen the thread where they posted the images over at SA, they didn't really dig much, they just have a crapload of members over there. It only takes two pages of about 20-30 people browsing the forums to get weird stuff. Considering they do it all the time, too, I think that they'd know the best way to get decent stuff. Search for certain words, go to archives, check for bad poetry in poetry forums and otherwise just grab the first thread they see and try to find something they can laugh at. :p It's not that difficult, really.

Likewise, there's some good art there (really good where the likes of Dr Unne and Sita Atis are concerned) - but as far as literature and poetry is concerned, you'd be suprised at the crap that does get published (can anyone say Star Wars novels?), so you could understand my trepidation at approaching anything that hasn't. But neverthesless, it takes bravery to put something of your own creation onto the internet for the word to see, and it's a true coward who'll rip it to shreds in the way that SA did. Shame on them.

Check out the viewing number on this thread. Heh.

But one of my posts was right below some other ones that were listed on there. I would register, but I'm poor and ghetto. Oh well. They need to make more articles, so I'm listed.

You should pay up some money and ban some random people.

Just for a laugh and all.
1) that's stupid.
2) You can't actually do that.
3) It appears Random Tonberry lied so he could be cooler to the internet, as spok said he deleted his livejournal for a completely unrelated reason and not because he got SERVED DAWG by Ton and his friends. Why, Random Tonberry? Why?

I only find this funny, really, because I've been a fan of SA for a long time. The Weekend Web feature is never very good and I usually just skim it, but its fun to have EoFF on there, even if most of the insults are pretty... lame.

We could have directed the good people over at SA to some much more disturbing/entertaining threads.

Perhaps they could make it a regular feature.

*Begins rant* The funny has sort of worn off a little and I have something to say about it - and I know people are going to not agree with me but - I sort of find it lame they used the poetry and am a tad bit insulted by the comment to all the poetry here in general. I've never found it right to judge other's emotional outlet ( even if it isn't up to par with poets through the years ). Their efforts could have been better spent. Using matterial from EoEo I believed was wrong too. That's also an emotional outlet. Basically - if it's meant to be serious, regardless of what is said, it should be respected and I think they crossed the line here.
Anything in General Chat and other places is free reign and I'm fine with being made fun of since I'm able to laugh at it but proding EoEo and the poetry was a bad move, in my humble opinion. *Ends rant*

. . . and by the way. I was mentioned TWICE!! Bwuahahaha! :p @ at those not mentioned.

Stop saying all the poetry (or even some) sucks. I mean, come on, guys. This SA deal doesn't make it okay for everyone to start ripping on the people here who are brave enough to post poems they write.

Doesn't matter if you like 'em or not; constructive criticism is one thing, telling people their work sucks is another thing, and unacceptable.

That is the thing that really kept me from enjoying the SA thing. The cliche humor of video game geeks was almost funny. But the personal attacks on people's poetry and personal photographs was just plain mean. And not in a funny manner.

Actually, although they might laugh at us (hey, we are too) - from the few people I've chatted to (from SA) about this, they actually think we're pretty cool for how we reacted. They're used to people being heartbroken about it, so when people like us are laid back enough to show some humility and laugh with them, they think it's neat. Well, just from the people who have chatted to me, anyway.

I agree that we should go around saying poetry sucks. I have poetry in there that's freaking cool, man. :D I don't get offended at all when people say that kind of stuff (more often than not they don't appreciate good poetry anyway), but just because I can handle it doesn't mean everyone can. Rules of EoFF apply - be civil and constructive. And specific.

I found it to be hilarious that I haven't even really been to EoFF in two years and yet I was familiar with many of the posts that they had listed. And honestly, the Gender Switch Thread was one of the funniest threads ever created.

I don't like poetry all the much, I think its annoying to read because the person who writes it thinks it awesome and you're left there thinking "Should I tell them that I didn't like it and crush their dreams?" But its not kosher to poke fun at people's work. Not at all. Oh well.

They come to the forum, end up browsing, realizing that since the people are pretty cool and there's a common interest, they might as well sign up too.

So...yeah. That's why I'm here now.

Wow, I am now "stupider" after actually reading all the "witty" remarks from Something Awful. May God have mercy on their soul.

I didn't find that funny whatsoever. Since they seem so keen on insulting us, I don't see any harm in returning a few of my own. Here we go.....

"A debt collection agency demanding that you pay them for all the bounced checks you wrote to the local anime store run by some sweaty fat ass who still sleeps with his parents when the night light is in the shop for repairs is not considered stalking."

Nice run on sentence. Go back to grade 8, you mongloid moron. You can gradually see his desperation to make this insult great as the sentence goes on. A word of advice when making an insult....don't make one insult out of one's used a thousand times.

"The Something Awful Forums hates new users so much that we don't even allow them to introduce themselves. It's to stop threads like this from happening every single day..."

....and....

"As an avid fan of Final Fantasy I never go outside or socialize with anyone. I love all my level 99 characters with maxed stats and all the super special weapons and that one summon that takes roughly four days to get. My playtime is at 426 hours and 7 minutes. "

I thoroughly enjoy the contradiction in the insults. First they try to accuse people at EOFF of having no socialization skills, and then they prevent people from introducing themselves on their own forums. YES, I best socialize with people when I don't let them know I actually exist (100% sarcastic, since Something Awful can't distinguish sarcasm. Again, we learn about that in grade school and by SOCIALIZING with other people).

"Someone please email me and answer me this question, WHAT IS WITH STUPID FINAL FANTASY FANS AND HORRIBLE POETRY? Please for the love of God."

For the love of God! Believe it or not, God gave us this strange gift called "free will" which enables us to express ourselves through things like poetry, or in your case, the dimeaning of other people. It's really not a difficult concept to understand.

And how can you criticize poetry when you don't write? Oh....I forgot. Writing poetry is totally geeky. We should all try to be more like the people at SA, they are "tres" cool. You don't obtain the status of "cool" by dressing up like a bunch of wannabe skaters and making fun of people who like to express their emotions. But whatever, keep on acting tough, make fun of geeks, get piss faced at the bar, stare at the "chicks", and my GOD will people think you are cool.

"I think that people become so involved in these things because there is something missing in their life. I have no solution for these people. I only know how to ridicule them."

Umm....something must be missing in your life if you take the time to create an entire web page based on ridiculing other people. It must give you a real ego boost, since you can't seem to find it anywhere else.

I don't see a problem with people here. They aren't afraid to express themselves about different things. Unique people are the most interesting to associate with, not "macho" jackasses at SA.

Anyhow, I'm done ranting. I don't speak for all the members here, but that's just what I think. Delete the post if you think it's too crude.

By donning the mask of Cute Gurl v2.0, one is given the freedom to write whatever they like while avoiding all traditional forms of grammar and punctuation. Cute Gurl v2.0 is best not used on forums inhabited by males under the age of 20, or else other forum members have a high chance of changing into Mr. Aggressive when responding to posts. Use of emoticons and other ASCII art is highly encouraged, as is the act of referring to everybody as "hunny", "sweetie", and "cutie." In other words, try to be an online slut who's entire diet consists of pig troughs full of sugar. Whenever another Cute Gurl v2.0 comes online, the sheer idiocy in the forums will increase at least twelvefold. The Cute Gurls v2.0 should greet each other with outrageously annoying phrases like "hey baybee!!!!!!!!" and "luv u hunny!!!!!!"

Wow, the Cute girl V.2 was a good touch. A forum slut. *puts up new title* ^^ Good thing I have a sense of humour *gives finger to that idiot*

Perhaps we shouldn't take this too seriously, Storm. *snicker*
Right, so everytime some "well known" website makes fun of EOFF we should just admit we're all losers, because the majority of the population will support them.

Obviously in my response I was stereotyping them, just like they were doing to us. I even stated I was trading insults. The only thing that actually annoys me is that they make fun of the poetry or stories. I don't even read the poetry or stories, but I can only imagine it's quite crushing for the people who wrote it to have their work slashed up.



Hi. SA arn't the same as the football players that beat you up, Storm. They're certainly not macho, nor have I ever seen anyone there claim to be.

Aghhh....this thread is more crazy than a crazy bog.

I thought SA's article was amusin, and I also thought Storm's return insults were amusing. No need to make a competition out of it all.

HA HA....excellent. I just wanted one person to say my insults were amusing, even though most of them were terribly lame. But where I come from, the lamest insults are the best insults.

Actually, that's not true either. I just like lame insults. :mog:

Right, so everytime some "well known" website makes fun of EOFF we should just admit we're all losers, because the majority of the population will support them.


Face it, we are all losers. But let's not get depressed over that. We should wear our loserness with pride. It takes skill to be a good loser...

...Actually, I find the entire thing hilarious. Anyone who feels insulted is way too sensitive. I use the internet as a way to act like a complete idiot and say all the things that are too stupid to be spoken out loud. I wish I'd been made fun of.

I know it's not a real word. I was given the impression it was just a slang expression used by rednecks or people who used to be farmers, like my pappy.You do mean mongoloid. It's considered offensive because it equates Mongolians to people with Down syndrome (ugly retards).

The only thing that actually annoys me is that they make fun of the poetry or stories. I don't even read the poetry or stories, but I can only imagine it's quite crushing for the people who wrote it to have their work slashed up.

Well, for one thing, if anyone even considers thier opinion, they can hopefully take it as well as dish it out. I know that I don't care because I don't know the dudes and even if I did, who cares what other peeps think (besides the obvious generally courtesy rules).

I nominate we make a thread making fun of Something Awful Forums or Something Awful.com, than let them see it. :evilking:

I read this last night after I saw the link in Mikael's LJ... funny stuff. =P Especially when there are other things floating around that would have been a whole lot easier to make fun of. Ah, well. It still made me giggle. xD

Mongoloid refers to the fact that people with Downs Syndrome have a somewhat slanteyed appearance and a dopey open-mouthed look that makes them look Oriental.

Wow, I am now "stupider" after actually reading all the "witty" remarks from Something Awful. May God have mercy on their soul.

I didn't find that funny whatsoever. Since they seem so keen on insulting us, I don't see any harm in returning a few of my own. Here we go.....

"A debt collection agency demanding that you pay them for all the bounced checks you wrote to the local anime store run by some sweaty fat ass who still sleeps with his parents when the night light is in the shop for repairs is not considered stalking."

Nice run on sentence. Go back to grade 8, you mongloid moron. You can gradually see his desperation to make this insult great as the sentence goes on. A word of advice when making an insult....don't make one insult out of one's used a thousand times.

"The Something Awful Forums hates new users so much that we don't even allow them to introduce themselves. It's to stop threads like this from happening every single day..."

....and....

"As an avid fan of Final Fantasy I never go outside or socialize with anyone. I love all my level 99 characters with maxed stats and all the super special weapons and that one summon that takes roughly four days to get. My playtime is at 426 hours and 7 minutes. "

I thoroughly enjoy the contradiction in the insults. First they try to accuse people at EOFF of having no socialization skills, and then they prevent people from introducing themselves on their own forums. YES, I best socialize with people when I don't let them know I actually exist (100% sarcastic, since Something Awful can't distinguish sarcasm. Again, we learn about that in grade school and by SOCIALIZING with other people).

"Someone please email me and answer me this question, WHAT IS WITH STUPID FINAL FANTASY FANS AND HORRIBLE POETRY? Please for the love of God."

For the love of God! Believe it or not, God gave us this strange gift called "free will" which enables us to express ourselves through things like poetry, or in your case, the dimeaning of other people. It's really not a difficult concept to understand.

And how can you criticize poetry when you don't write? Oh....I forgot. Writing poetry is totally geeky. We should all try to be more like the people at SA, they are "tres" cool. You don't obtain the status of "cool" by dressing up like a bunch of wannabe skaters and making fun of people who like to express their emotions. But whatever, keep on acting tough, make fun of geeks, get piss faced at the bar, stare at the "chicks", and my GOD will people think you are cool.

"I think that people become so involved in these things because there is something missing in their life. I have no solution for these people. I only know how to ridicule them."

Umm....something must be missing in your life if you take the time to create an entire web page based on ridiculing other people. It must give you a real ego boost, since you can't seem to find it anywhere else.

I don't see a problem with people here. They aren't afraid to express themselves about different things. Unique people are the most interesting to associate with, not "macho" jackasses at SA.

Anyhow, I'm done ranting. I don't speak for all the members here, but that's just what I think. Delete the post if you think it's too crude.
I am quoting this because I want more instances of it in this thread.

It's things like these that amuse me to no end whatsoever. I mean, come on - when someone on an internet message board says "this is my husband! :love:", what are the odds that they really are a husband? Nobody who was casually browsing would actually expect that to be TRUE. xD

Other than that, I thought it was friggin' awesome, especially since I got quoted.

Also from Something Awful....

"Presenting the men of Eyes on Final Fantasy Forums! A calender will be released soon."

Indeed, a calender will be released soon and this is the picture for the month of January. It is entitled "Storm's special gift to the considerate people at somethingawful.com. Thank you for all your insults."

Attachment removed for being innaproprate and NOT NICE.

EDIT: Well, that picture didn't last long. My gift was actually "the piano in the background". ;)
By the way, I'd appreciate not being banned for that little immature stunt. It won't happen again.

There was an attachment that was removed because it was not nice.

It was a middle finger. Can I say that? *looks to censors* I think so. Middle finger. The bird. Maybe it was in jest, though, and sent with love. We may never know.

Storm
04-29-2004, 05:21 AM
I think we can say "middle finger", considering how there is an entire thread on "peeing in the shower". Also, in FFIV Cid says something like "Golbez, here's a present from the chief engineer Cid, as well as my middle finger!".

But anyhow. Yes, it was a picture of me giving the finger to the people at www.somethingawful.com. Personally, I thought it was pretty funny, but I understand there are certain behaviour rules that must be followed.
