The Countdown Thread (wherein we prognosticate the demise of SA).

I say three more years. Lowtax will claim that he got a new job with a big firm writing sketch comedy or commercials or some kind of marketing. He will say that he has to transfer his intellectual property rights in SA and the new owner will mysteriously pull the plug one day.

That shit ain't long for this world. Ozma (fat) can't run it alone and lowtax has got to be tired of it.
Yes, that is me in court with my enormous penis.

SA is probably a comfortable and relatively effortless income generator for Lowtax. Even if revenue is down, well, it's a down economy. And he does have a dedicated userbase who have proven they will pay for shit they could get free elsewhere. So, he will probably just let things continue as they have been. SA will continue to grow, lose relevance, and become even more of a shell/parody of its former self than it already has. If or when he decides to sell it, and SA becomes part of a huge media conglomerate, it will be as pervasive and meaningless as facebook. He will prob have to sign a noncompete that will keep him from starting another forum, or might even net a tidy little stipend just to post there, so that ubergoons and the whole of FYAD would not defect en masse to wherever he started posting next. That's my two cents.

I agree with most of this, except the part where Lowtax could ever sell it. That ship sailed a long time ago. SA is beyond irrelevant now.

Around 2004 Lowtax could have had some pretty decent pussy from the forums. I think now only the most loathesome of hambeasts would sling her haunches his way and pity would be much of the impetus. All women are repulsed by depressed men.

Actually, I'm curious to hear the whole story about Lowtax and his Asian wife. Anyone got details about the saga?

If he was willing to alternate his lifestyle, he could easily find a transgendered life partner on his forums. Misery does love company, right?
Quote from: a man with an asymmetrical haircut
This was posted on the page before, but I was only able to catch up on this thread now. I'd like to point out that not all lesbian relationships have two vaginas, and it really sucks as a queer trans woman to hear this sort of generalization all the time.

If low tax ever shut the forums down, some king-goon would recreate it in a nanosecond. If not in its entirety then the individual subfora would pop up all around, like internet acne. I doubt you'd even have to wait a day.

It would never come close to getting recreated because goons are cliquish and can't put aside petty squabbles for more than two seconds. Look at the MMO forums and see how many variations of groups there are for a single vidya game; it's good goons.txt fodder if you're willing to waste an hour figuring out the he-said she-said of it all

They're cliquish but they're sheep. If one person made a mirror of a forum, the rest would post there.

I agree that they could never get anything accomplished. Not only that, but 25 different IK's would pop up expecting to be the NeoLotax. They'd never get a cohesive group.

I dunno, there are already cohesive spin-off forums that exist. All you'd need is to get one superstar hat the other goons fawn over and you'd be good to go.

I think for the longest time that the goonfleet forum was almost like the old SA. That was a good forum. Even the old BTB forums aren't bad off.
My favorite Aatrek episode is "City on the Edge of A School Zone"

Kevin Dawes was sold out by Eliot Higgins.

The prophecy did not come true.

Man, I was hoping this place would live to see SA die.

The only way it'll go offline is when Lowtax finally goes completely broke.
