FYAD was legendary back in the day, but it lost all its comedic joy a decade ago at least.

It's better that way. The guy's a deadbat dad pill addict that abandoned and squandered his site. His forum is a total mess of a culture war of people that grew up and lost their sense of humor, on all sides.

I wonder if Cliff Yablonski had something to say about that shaithole turd. When  Cliff saw that gutter Nazi the first time he avoided the freak but then had to push that arsehole's nose out his ear and run over him with his own candy van 4 times for good measure. Then Cliff shoved that freak's pimply assed face down in the meat hole where he still lived with his mother.

The story portions of the site were damn funny at times. The original Rachel Ray story was freaking awesome.

Their Photoshop threads were a bit more themes than Fark's and had great skill. It was a nice visit every now and then.

/goon squad's exploits in EVE online were great as long as you weren't the target

Wow.  I'm amazed that a website notorious for hosting horrible people, actually got rid of some horrible people.

I guess, that's proof that nobody likes nazis.

According to the site owner, ironic (comedy) Nazis become real Nazi the moment you ban them.

So real Nazis all along. Just faking the ironic part.

"I've found, in my 20 years of running the site, that whenever you ban an ironic Nazi, suddenly they become actual Nazis," he said.

Pretty much sums it up.  Not just nazis, either.  It's a shame, because I enjoyed having places on the internet where people were intentionally transgressive for a laugh, but there really isn't any way to avoid having places like that turn into havens for people using it as cover for actually being assholes, or to avoid idiots finding it and internalizing it in place of an actual personality.  It starts off small, and people get defensive when anyone is called on it and tell the person complaining to fark off if they can't take a joke, the asshole is empowered, more assholes move into the new safe space, and sooner or later it's just an ocean of piss poorly contained and leaking out to anywhere else on the site.

Agreed for certain. I found their stories to be a lame attempt at rekindling what they found to be the greatest literature of all time in 1980s college -- National Lampoon. SA was like NatLamp except with more Incel and Nazi and slightly fewer college educated writers.

/pol/ was created as a containment tab for the nazis who were soft-invading from Stormfront, but the joke was on them, because it brought more nazis from the rest of the web, and they bled over into every other forum. Even if they deleted /pol/ now, they've already infected every other sub-forum.

Wisdom from the mouth of lowtax.

Kyanka said that for the past few years, most of the FYAD posts were the kind of Nazi shiatposting seen on 4chan and Twitter that is supposedly ironic but is harmful nonetheless. "I've found, in my 20 years of running the site, that whenever you ban an ironic Nazi, suddenly they become actual Nazis," he said.

They always had a talented core photoshopping crew and some good comedic writers.   Though I only lurked and never bothered to make an account of my own primarily because at that point in the internet I was a "try before I buy" type of guy and if I remember correctly you had to plop down money to participate which I wasn't going to do.  Sounds like that was probably a good move.
