the Something Awful forums, which this forum is an "offsite" for. It used to have a loosely-moderated politics subforum where you could be openly communist without being banned (along with basically anything else, which is why there were so many people with bad or totally aestheticized politics when this board started). it was shut down because either, depending on who you believe, a poster made a threat on obama's life and the owner of the site, Richard "LowTax" Kayanka, got a visit from the secret service or because the posters made fun of a Troop moderator too much for having built himself a totally unlivable house and bragging about it. then a bunch of people went of and founded various offsite forums to try and continue where they left off. it probably played a role in the radicalization of many people here, for better or for worse. notable moderators include grover, the troopsucker who built a deathtrap house and bragged about it; sean "vilerat" smith, an EVE Online extraordinaire, tremendous racist, and State Department computer janitor, notable for getting epically owned and a bunch of other terrible human beings

C-SPAM kinda has a vibe similar to Chapo Trap House which means it's the best thing over there in years, but you need to be careful talking about forums on other forums. Next thing you know you're creating dossiers on random internet mods and believing you're taking part in some crusade to redeem comedy.

its strange to me there are people who join this forum who don't know what something awful is.

if you're in a position at all to not do this then DON'T, loyalty or a sense of responsibility are atavisms that workplaces have been finely tuned to exploit. i've pretty much ruined my life because i'm a hardworking idiot. if you're stuck though that sucks, be well
