The author is autistic. All of you people are making fun of an autistic person's writing ability. What's next, challenging that kid with a hair lip to a watermelon seed spitting contest?

What is crueler? Telling someone their work sucks, or not telling them so everyone can see them make a fool of themselves?

Raharu: The only way that story could have been worse was if at the end the punch line was

"We're the autistocrats"


That might have been the only way he could have saved the story for me.

BrynnMacFlynn: moel: Is it just me, or has satire turned to ABSOLUTE shiat.

I've seen more crappy stories in the last week, than I have in the last 2 years... I for one intend to open my own satirical site to combat this utter dearth of shiate thats being shovelled at me now.

People think satire means "EAT THE BABBIES BECAUSE IT'S FUNNY AND UNREASONABLE" not, "Here's a legitimate problem, and here's a unrealistic solution that works in theory, but is actually horrific in scope."

See: the dumbass who made "Kill Mitt Romney" and "I support the guys who killed a cop in Philly" pages and started bleating about satire the moment the police charged him. Seriously. It's not satire. Do not taint the good names of Jonathan Swift and The Onion with your shiat.


Yes people!
This, so much this.
(and an example of some good satire)

/perhaps the article was satire of satire? Some sort of meat satire if you will?

meat satire? WTF am I writing?

Meta satire,
/I was unaware of my lexdysia until just this moment

ADHD Librarian: meat satire? WTF am I writing?

Meta satire,
/I was unaware of my lexdysia until just this moment


The good news is that would be a killer band name.

LarryDan43: I was wondering what happened to bbspot.


I miss BBSpot.

Even the Onion has gone to crap.
