The Nominees

Can't have a vote without proper discussion of the issues:

MJPollard: Does a lot of the "RIP somebody nobody has ever heard of" posts. Did you know that the guy who used to drive a bus from that hair band in the 80's that had one popular song died? Did you want to know? No? Exactly...that's why MJP made the list.

Docforbin: Notorious for posting something, provoking annoyance and anger and then never ever responding to any of the people who are stupid enough to respond to one of his posts. Posts spoilers for TV show nobody knows or cares about. Talks about comics in the newspaper that nobody cares about and says things like "I do what I want...just like Luann". If there was someway you could punch somebody through the internet, this guy would be dead. And there was that whole thing about his stupid high school reunion.

Wouter: Does this guy ever talk about anything except for bands nobody has ever heard of or guitars? I mean, how many freaking posts about guitars can one possibly stand? It's no wonder he has more guitars than he has had girlfriends.

Dervish: Dervish is very insightful and funny a lot of the time, but sometimes her posts are just TLDR. And sometimes with all the links, it could take a couple of hours just to read one post. I know I have better things to do, like watching 90210 marathons.

Crossada: Hmm...where to start. "My landlord wants to make repairs to my apartment" "My brand new car is tainted because somebody else sat in it that may or may have not come into contact with battery acid at one point in his life" "I hate the government but don't mind living off of it" "liberals are trying to take my guns! I need those guns to protect me from the government that is after me and my landlord who is trying to repair my building" "Liberals drank all my beer!" "Some underage girl didn't take too kindly to my perverted old man advances towards her" This guy posts every crackpot theory in the world and even if it's an article about ballerinas and sandwiches he turns into a conspiracy against him personally.

RLobinske: If 90% of his posts weren't explaining why he just locked a thread that was "getting out of hand" (i.e. people were disagreeing) he might not have made this list. Although, his fanfiction alone qualifies him. "There was this huge disaster, but michael held daria and kissed her and then everything magically turned out perfectly and the disaster went unnoticed by all"

Bluu: "People are so jealous of me and how perfect I am" "I have a problem, there is a guy who likes me like so much and i'm just way better than him and now he doesn't like me as much as he used to" This girl is attention whore the extreme, I don't know if it's because of her age, or if she is a real life Quinn (sorry Quiverwing) but she is definitely eyeroll worthy.

Derek: "Here is a picture of a train" "Here is a picture of a blue train" "here is a picture of a subway" "here is a picture of a train next to another train". Here is a picture of me beating my head against the wall.

Note: Robin Sena did not make the list for the sole purpose that it would not be fair to the other contenders. Robin Sena will always be the biggest assdiva in the world and be capable of making the most boring yet insanely mind bogglingly horrid posts possible.

NEW POLL

If you have a problem with it, sue Quiverwing, it was her idea, I'm just the only one with the power to create the polls. I like to think that I'm like jesus, but not in a sacrilegious way.

A new poll will now be added every week. Cause it's important to get people's opinions on stuff that doesn't really matter. Feel free to suggest ideas for polls. Then I can make a poll about the worst suggestion for a poll. It will be radical.

Cause I can

I made a new poll! Aren't you proud of me? What is your least favorite forum at PPMB? I mean besides the ones that didn't even make the poll because nobody important (i.e. me) ever posts in them. It's so hard to pick just one!

Congratulations to

Greybird! You have won DBB's Asshat of 2007 award. Your prize is complete ostracization from Daria Fandom! Oh, if we only all could be so lucky.

You really have to commend the guy for winning by such a huge margin. Somebody should explain to Bush that this is what a mandate is.

Robin Sena came in second and Martin and Gamefreak tied for 3rd. Better luck next year guys! Guess you'll just have to try harder.


Well, that's it for the Biggest Asshat of 2007. I'd have a better post for you all, but, ya know, the writers strike and all.

Dariacon is a giant daria-bomb

So...

the big Dariacon is looking like a pretty major bust. Not many people going at all. So, what are the real reasons you're not going?

I'm not going mostly because of school, it would be almost impossible for me to make it due to having to go to school 5 days a week and both Monday and Friday being required for me to be there. So that would give me 2 days, and with an 8 hour flight each way, it just seems totally unfeasible.

However, almost nobody I want to meet/like is going, I'd be more inclined to work something out if more people were going that I like.

I also gave away my free plane ticket, so I'd have to pay out of pocket and I'd rather go somewhere else.

Biggest Asshat of 2007: A Look Back

So, with cynigal’s poll closing in a couple of days, I thought I could reflect a little on the events that led those names to be in that poll. So, let’s analyse the ones who got the honor and the ones who should have too. For lulz and great justice.

Greybird: Known for playing no positive role in the fandom. Used every opportunity he got to catcall fans and their works ever since he joined. This time, what he said about Thea Zara and his threat of legal action made him the front runner among the asshats of the year.

Robin Sena/Becky/Ianthe Yario/The Ghosts: Known for her bizarre posts and stupid behaviour. Lately, she’s been obsessed with cyde and his allies, and that’s getting fucking old. It seems that she has nothing better to do than living in this hell she creates in her own head. Not to mention she cannot even keep her sock puppets straight.

Starmeshelion: Known for his insanely creepy obsession with Stacy, that started getting on everyone. He refused to accept Stacy was not real, and did not want people to badmouth Stacy because “she was so pure and sweet.” Yeah, and also a fictional character. Of course, people responded with more angsty fanfiction that had Stacy suffering horrible deaths only to give the guy a heart attack. He was very stalkerish and got offended when I asked him not to flirt with me against my will. He got so butthurt over it that he called me a “whore” in a thread.

Game freak/R. Whitley/Ricky/Flameman: Known for being just plain stupid and for returning with so many sockpuppets that people thought he was sockpuppet queen Becky at some point. A typical attention whore, in the end he was just posting to get banned. His board advertisements were getting annoying. Something tells me he’ll be back this year… *knock on wood*

Martin J. Pollard: Let me refresh your memory: he stole Kara Wild's intellectual property and when she found out about it and asked him to remove what he had taken without permission, he bluntly refused to take them off his site. Instead, he decided to close OD and erase all traces of Kara Wild's existence (her stories, essays, etc.) from it. Kara had every right to do what she did, but he obviously behaved like a pompous child about it. "No, no, no!! I won't do it!! BAAAAAWWW!!! I'm leaving!!! Daria fandom is nothing without my website and YOU know it!!!"

E.A Smith: It was rumored that he left his moderator position because of an argument he had with cynigal, where he refused to answer to her points and that she was clearly winning. According to cynigal, he made the poll because she “just doesn’t like the guy.”

Honorable mentions (that should’ve been included):

cynigal: That goes without saying. For creating the DBB, because she’s a bitch.

cyde: For making Robin Sena a star. A prolific DBB and Flame Wars poster, if you couldn’t tell by now, he’s a dick.

RLobinske: As someone pointed out before, for random thread-locking and lack of a sense of humor.

I’m pretty sure I’m forgetting people. Oh well. Keep voting!

WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE

Can't you people follow simple rules?! Why haven't you brought me shirtless Brad Pitt from FightClub? You're all sued!

And Martin's Back...

Anyone want to go kiss his arse?

I thought not. How kind of him to notice how badly fandom was struggling without him there to blow hot air about. Funny that.

Martin, on behalf of the fandom you huffed out of over intellectual property theft that you never apologised for I'd like to pass on the following message. We're doing just fine without you. You can fuck off again any time you like.
