Animeleague: The Overview

Saturday, September 12th, 2009

Well, it’s pretty much over and done with for this round. If I kept throwing shit at them, they might just think I cared.

Can’t have now can we.

So as a final, I’ll be giving you a walkthrough of the issues of a community, of the type Animeleague belongs in.

Anime-themed forums, it isn’t really an anime forum in any way or shape, as the vast majority of the forums purpose is social interaction and general discussion.

So it’s just anime-themed, the signatures, avatars and general layout reeks with standard mangaesque drawings and photoshops.

Now, the main issues with these kind of forums, and with animeleague especially, is that there’s no sense of criticism. Even the most awful contributions are elevated as mana from Mount fucking Olympus.

Now, that wouldn’t be a problem, in a dreamworld, made of puppies and sunshine. This lack of criticism and attentionwhoring, creates an atmosphere that’s not realistic in any way or shape.

To a degree, attentionwhores make it a long way in pornography I suppose. It’s just that sooner or later you have to show some actual skills too.

And how you can do this and not expect troubles are beyond me:


Yes, what a good idea.

Now, before you go nuts, this didn’t go as expected, everyone and their dog went “That’s fucking retarded”. Stacey expected some positive feedback, perhaps even a “Pics plx”.

Surprisingly, it didn’t go that way:


And as Matt said:


She probably had pictures of the atrocity taken and ready to post Matt, wouldn’t even surprise me at all. Would disgust me.

Guess the whole issue of “treat women like whores” is living good and well inside her twisted little head.

Oh wait, she’s fat, I totally forgot.


Haven’t got a clue who “Joel” is, but he/she/it should stop by one day, hang around, have a coke. Also, the guy in the second post was probated, apparently he/she/it had done a bunch of other stuff.

Still a pretty good reply, on most forums, he/she/it would have been a hero.


So, this is how things are done behind the scenes, back when I had the misfortune of being a volunteer on the forums, internal censorship would have created a fucking shitstorm.

So Fortune here isn’t even allowed to comment about the administration of a specific forum, how delightful, I guess her opinion is against the opinion of Michael “Freesaiyan” Towers.

Another problematic issue with these kind of forums are fascist leadership with no opportunity for debate, even among staff members internally.


I’ve titled this one “wasted effort”. Because that’s really what is.

In the eyes of the generic members of the forums, the rules exist to keep the bright sparkling creative members down and out of the way.

So they can feel special without any sort of effort or creativity.

I remember during one of my “I’m bored let’s use a proxy and mess around on animeleague” periods a few years a back. I could almost see the terror my originality caused among the members of the forums, it was awesome.

Which brings me to another point, nepotism. Staff members aren’t selected due to skill or anything in that area, it’s all popularity.

Or having a friend on staff, suggesting you in a violent and threatening manner. That’s not really a very good system, seeing as the popular are usually the ones who smack their tits in the face of the peons or the ones who appeal most to the baser instincts.

Or who watches the most Naruto.

As a closing argument, remember.

Don’t take the Internet to serious.


I shall now salute the New World Order for the rest of the next 34 seconds, all the way to the Forums!

Vandalism and you.

Thursday, September 10th, 2009

You can probably guess what this one’s all about, can’t you?

Wrong, it’s about ANIMELEAGUE.NET, not about filthy cybersex you freak.



Reichspräsident Michael Towers just asked his forum staff to commit gross acts of vandalism on another site, isn’t that lovely?



It still amazes me to a considerable degree that a man with the charisma of a burnt potato can create such loyalty and anger in his volunteer moderation staff.

Yet another case of “Power attracts” and seeing as Tower’s only power is being the owner of a silly generic forum, all the people he attracts are stupid, bland and probably fat.


Really isn’t much of interest from the actual content of the post, but look at that signature, Pokemon? Ha!


Dear Copernicus, have you seen that? It’s all just bullshit.


18.000 members. Yes, of course.

700 of them active eh? Pretty sure Encyclopedia Dramatica can manage that one, especially seeing as this was in his private staff section. So, what 30 people? Bound to be a couple who realize how silly the whole thing is.


Nope, they just moved it.


So, Towers talking about hacking a wikipedia web software.

Pies trying in vain.


Free digging his grave deeper, Space Cowboy stating the obvious.


Towers really hasn’t got a clue how the Internet, or life, works. Raising to the bait, just makes it better for us Michael.

So please keep trying, don’t stop the horrible fight.


Sweetheart, Mike would need something in the range of rape and murder before he could claim higher moral ground that his “opponents”.

Also, blackmail, nice how he really brings out the WORST of his followers.


Natürlich, mein Führer, Reichsführer-SS Zelgadis ist immer mit Ihnen! SIEG HEIL!


And I end it on a CLIFFHANGER! That’ll fucking teach you little scumbags. It’s time for Internet Legal Action! The Greatest Threat since the Danish Army around 1940!

See you next time, thanks to Stacey and Revy!

Paranoia on the Anime Forums Part One!

Paranoia on the Anime Forums Part One! The Shining Path!


So, welcome back to yet another feature about the silly little buggers of the Animeleague forums! And it’s yet another case of Freesaiyan being absolutely insanely paranoid and thinking that everyone and everything is out to get him, so let’s help him along!

It’s almost a shame that I can’t get my hands on all the stuff that goes through the PMs and IMs, but then again, would I actually want to see it?

Probably not:


I really haven’t got a clue who Jason or Showmasters actually are. The Grapewine tells me something about attentionwhores and event stealing, seems fair enough to presume such.


And here comes all the stuff we’ve been waiting for! Paranoia! Theories about where the leak comes from! Who did it!

Why me of course! I’m sitting here in my corner of the Internet and twirling my moustache and polishing my tophat.

Me, and a few others.


Zelgadis here is a moron, of course not a single person in the “anime” community likes you, you’re a bunch of twats. Your boss is a selfish moron who just wants to accumulates whatever power his pitiful choice of life potentially makes available.

So yes Zelgadis, you are dense. Like harden steel.


I have no clue who any of those are, hasn’t stopped me.

And fuck, is that ever a shitty signature.


How do you measure loyalty? Well, The Lords Resistance Army of Dem. Congo forces its child soldiers to kill their own parents. Hitler faced his people against each other to keep them away from his own total power.

And of course, the problem about his question is that IT’S A FUCKING ANIME FORUM YOU FREAK!


Oh sweet Buddah that’s awesome!

“People that hate us and are involved in convoluted plots to wage war against a web community”

It makes me sound like a fucking supervillain again! Really Matt, it’s just that people think your community is a stinking puss-filled wound on an already stupid sub-culture.


A Second Life account? Are you fucking kidding me? Second Life isn’t a videogame, it’s just another place for furries to propagate their foul fetish.

And it’s just me.

And my Social Engineering.

And a bunch of your staff members being REALLY angry.

Thanks to Stacey and Revy!

Michael “Freesaiyan” Towers

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

Now, Michael “Freesaiyan” Towers is the guy who owns and operates the Animeleague forums: This is how he describes himself:

Strengths: Intelligence, Charisma, Loyalty, Courage, Kindness, Selflessness, Insightful, Humour, Organisational/Management Skills and Wit (allegedly), open-minded, extreme resilience (ie: I don’t give up), determined, common-sense and logical.
Weaknesses: Apathy, Sadness, Under-Confidence, Social Odd-ball, Fear, Very Poor Relationship Skills with the opposite sex, too-soft.

I’d personally describe him as a selfish little twit of a man, weak, stupid and with an amazing ability to somehow twists people’s tasteless facination for Japanese cartoons into his own personal goon squad.

Now he has a lovely little feud with pretty much everyone else, related to silly Japanese Culture Convention, in the whole of Britain, because his convention is a giant mess: It steals from others, pester, annoy and is really fucking small.

But that’s not what you’re here for, you can read more about Towers here!

You’re here for secrets from the lovely STAFF forum of ANIMELEAGUE.NET, which I have aquired through my “Sources“.

We started out with the most important thread I could fine “This could be a problem for us now”, where Freesaiyan is whining about Encylopedia Dramatica being awesome and great.


You can see all the links here!





Some bullshit about how he wants more CYBERPOWER into his grubby little British hands:


I didn’t actuall read all this, it’s something about flying cars and dreams.


Now it get’s a little fancy again, Free, in his unwarrented paranoia, thinks some other con is out to GET HIM! Yes, because billions of people do nothing but try to get GLORIOUS VENGANCE on some nerdy English idiot.

He even calls it Astro-turfing, trying to present his opponents as a fake grassroots organization, despite the fact that this is the Internet.

We’re all grassroot, all of us.

Baically Towers thinks he is the first person to run a moderately successful UK based anime board and takes personal offence; when someone dares to claim that they were doing it before him.


He actally “requires” shit of his members, like it’s a fucking priviledge being a member of his stupid Japanese cartoon forum, hey! News-fucking-flash! There’s about a trillion fucking forums just like yours.

Just without the English racism, you nationalist prick.


I figured some of you nerds would want to look around the forums Freesaiyan babbles on about. (Gone with the Winds) (Gone, probably deleted, why have the conventionequivalent of STDs in your community?) This one is fucking awesome (Reqires a login, probably furries.) (Gone, the Conspiracy grows larger) (And the party goes on!)




Oh noes! How horrible! They wont show up at a Convention who doesn’t want them! Twenty people might not show up! The horror! Truely MCM are now doomed to forever walk the desolated streets of Manchster.

Well, I’m sure someone out there can use all this for greater purpose than mine.

Then again, my purpose is entertainment.

And there isn’t a greater one.

Once again, thank you SOURCES!

Sometimes, the Good Guys Win.

Sunday, July 12th, 2009

This story ends well, I’m afraid. Credit it to the otherwise excellent group — all the other players were great and the DM was hands-down the best I’ve ever played with.

Shockingly enough, this story comes from a Vampire game. I’m going to use real names, except for the guy I’m talking about. Not because I’m being nice or anything, I’ve just forgotten it, so I’m just gonna call him douche. Because he was one.

So, we’re playing. It’s a group of like six people, plus Jesse, the DM. I’m a Ventrue who was in the mafia before he got turned, so he’s taken the transition to undeath pretty easily. I take a couple dots of Underworld to reflect the mafia thing. (This’ll all come into the story later, I promise.) Meanwhile, douche is playing a Lasombra and he specs out that shadow-manipulation discipline all to hell and back. In fact, he puts so many dots into it, and has so clearly played Lasombra minmaxed characters before, that battles quickly become trivial — if there’s a shadow in the room, douche is invulnerable and kills everybody. This is not very fun for the rest of us, who would like a challenge and also a chance to get some violence in ourselves. Resentments simmer.

He’s also a colossal jerk to everyone both in and out of character; his character is an arrogant jerk who just does whatever he wants and expects us to follow along, and in real life he’s even more obnoxious because he’s a scrawny little fuck and doesn’t have the threat of being unstoppable in combat to back up his imperiousness. He’s exactly the sort who takes out real grudges in-game, so I go to the GM privately and let him know I’m rigging up my apartment with special lightning designed very specifically that if I turn it on, there isn’t a single shadow in the entire apartment. (I’d later learn that most of the group, each one acting independently, had done the same thing. He was that min-maxed.)

So one day, we’re sent off to kill some elder or something, I don’t quite remember the details. I do remember, however, that a frontal attack on this guy’s haven would have been foolhardy, and eventually one of us gets the bright idea that with some explosives, we could do this. Slight problem: we don’t have any explosives. After mulling over other options, I suddenly realize that a mobster damn well ought to be able to get his hands on stuff that goes boom if he really wants to, and I’ve got those two dots in Underworld. I roll on the dots, attempting to find a contact, and I succeed. Hooray! My guy knows a guy, we get our explosives, the attack goes swimmingly. (Douche diablerizes the elder.)

Well. Our group has just learned that Underworld is a very goddamn useful skill to have; between us we’ve got enough wealth to get our hands on anything we need that money can buy, and now if we need something that money can’t buy… I make a call, and we buy it anyway. Since we’re getting such mileage out of it, I save up my experience points and build myself up to 4 dots in Underworld, telling the GM that I’ve used my contacts amongst the other Ventrue (who are, after all, power brokers) to get myself into position as a capo in my crime family. This is a good explanation; it’s a lot of power and it makes 5 dots appropriately impossible; to advance any farther I’d have to be the godfather.

Since the group is now leaning on my Underworld contacts to get us useful illegal things when we need them, I’ve become important to the group. To douche, this just will not do. He must be the best and most important at everything! So, one week, he brings his girlfriend Sara into the game. Wouldn’t you know it? He’s already already prepared her character sheet with her, complete with backstory — not only is she a Ventrue too, but she was the daughter the godfather from the very same mob family I’m a part of! Man, small world, right? I say “was”, however, because it’s also part of her backstory that upon being turned, she frenzied and killed her father.

The plan here is very obvious. She was the godfather’s daughter, the godfather’s dead, she’ll inherit the position, right? Disregarding the fact that the mafia does not work that way, it’s a gigantic douche move. He can’t handle me being good at something he’s not, so he’s brought in a new player who’s under his thumb who’s good at everything I am. I’ll be supplanted and he’ll be the most important and the best again. Meanwhile, I see a golden opportunity. I couldn’t advance while the godfather was alive, and I couldn’t kill him because Jesse, nobody’s fool, would surely have made sure I would have gone down for doing that and not gained the position, and it was equally impossible that he’d be kind enough to have some outside force kill him off for me. But now the godfather is dead and I had nothing to do with it. Perfect!

I take Sara aside and, after making clear that I’m talking in-character, threaten her pretty strongly. She’s just killed my boss, and I’m no fool — I know she’s planning to try and take control of the family. I inform her that’s not happening. The family would never accept a woman in charge, but her last name does command some respect and she’ll have some loyalists on her side in the coming power struggle. I tell her she’s got two choices; she can back my play for the top spot and I’ll promise her a position of some power in return, or I can shoot her dead right here and now because, after all, I’m overcome with grief that the godfather is no more and I was taking revenge on his killer. She agrees to back my play.

I then go to Jesse and tell him that I want that fifth dot. I tell him that I’ve gotten Sara’s backing for the infighting that I’m sure will erupt, and I’m well aware that he can’t make getting five dots in a skill easy for me, but I’m going for it. I tell him to figure out what hoops he wants to make me jump through and I’ll get the group to help me out — they’ve been enjoying the fruits of my Underworld dots and will surely help me get even more power there. He thinks about it, then strips all my monetary resources and my influence for the next three game sessions to represent me putting everything I’ve got into securing the position, and tells me I can buy the fifth dot. I end up the godfather and get to wield practically unlimited power.

One week later, before douche arrives, the rest of the group huddles up and decides that last week’s bullshit was the last straw. We compare our characters and decide which among us has the best chance in single combat against him (we’re doing it by the book so we don’t get any wrath from above for killing a coterie member). We decide that the Malkavian in the group does, so when douche arrives he is promptly challenged to single combat. The Malkav (I’ve forgotten his name too, sadly) wins. Douche’s shadowjerk is staked and drained.

One week after that, Sara dumps him and starts dating Jesse.

So while playing with that guy was undoubtedly the worst experience I ever had with role-playing, I can’t deny that it has a very happy ending. He brought his girlfriend in to undermine my power and make him the guy we all needed to rely on again, and ended up increasing my power, getting kicked out of the group, and losing the girlfriend. Not bad, huh?

CapnAndy did it pretty well eh?

World of Warcraft fucking sucks

Sunday, June 14th, 2009

So, want jokes do you Army of Darkness?

Want me to prance about like a fucking Medieval minstrel telling you the news? Bullshitting about dragons and fucking dungeons? Fine, I’ll joke until your pitiful little brains melt and pour into the streets of Liverpool.

Why Liverpool? Because I fucking like using the city’s name in an absolutely delightful manner.

According to my frail research, you are apparently some World of Warcraft Guild, and by Guild, I mean Anti-Weight Watchers “We hate our life” group.

According to my further research into your dark, dank and quite possibly fetishistic daily workings, your “Guild” has at least a decent amount of members, surprising that so many people can turn off their good taste to join a “Guild” with a name as overwhelmingly daft as “Army of Darkness”, yes, we all know the movie was a delightful spectacle of masculine meritocracy, but really.

“Army of Darkness”, should probably be “Army of Dorkness”, not the best joke, but really, do you deserve less than spite?

The answer, is of course, a resounding no, a no uttered with such an intensity, that the very skies above shattered into a thousands pieces of my lost dreams.

Your “Guild” is apparently quite old too, older than my entire website, well done, well done indeed. Not that it really matters, as activity here, on, has been forthcoming since oh, 2004 or something like that.

Go look it up on, I’ll wait.

Done being a bitch? Good.

Always wondered why EverQuest went with “Guild”, not really a guild now is it? A Guild was a sovereign association of Tradesmen, operating in Ye Olden Days.

Kinda like a prototype Union/Corporation. Nothing to do with random freaks running around in a silly videogame spending hours killing dragon number 423, “The One with the yellow Spots”.

Still, I played World of Warcraft, kinda lost interest ages ago. Grinding the same crap, using the same tired old ways, gets you in the end.

Ultimately, World of Warcraft does not suck, the title of this article is simply a way of getting YOUR attention, that’s right, YOU! The Unique Little Snowflake!

It’s fanbase is a different story, a very different story. Like how Sonic fans are furries, Harry Potter fans paedophiles and dreamers, like how Dota fans are insane and how fans of Insane Clown Posse hasn’t gotten the joke yet.

World of Warcraft’s main fanbase are utter and complete pillocks, idiots, morons, dimwits, racist, useless, fat, socially inept and simply plain and utterly horrible at life.


Oh wait, you don’t have one.

Iceburn, I suppose I must.

Anencephaly Part Two

Monday, April 27th, 2009

Remember that last post? Sure you do, it was only a few days ago.

In relation to that post, where I refered to a sad case of Anencephaly and the delusions of a fundie single mother.

In a shocking event, the Goons of SomethingAwful, have found something rather interesting. Turns out that this maniac of a woman isn’t as innocent as she looks.

She planned out the whole thing.

She honestly claimed that her kid was only “handicapped”, she isn’t handicaped, she hasn’t got a fucking brain. That’s not a handicap, that’s vegetables.

Myah Walker gave an eloquent testimony about choosing life for her unborn baby whom she has named Hope. Six months pregnant, Myah has been told by doctors that Hope is handicapped. She has had to resist repeated pressure to abort. She hopes her story can inspire others about the God-given dignity of every child’s life.

You see that? You fucking see this sick twisted individual insane agenda. Repeated pressure to abort? It had no fucking brain, what the hell are professionally trained doctors suppose to say to you?

“Sure, I wont advice you to give birth to a fucking vegetable, go ahead! Make yourself utterly miserable caring for that abomination.”

I think BunnySkull said it well:

I can now only assume that upon finding out she was going to have a anencephalic baby she committed herself to using it as a propaganda tool for radical christianity and pro-life witnessing. I take back what I said earlier about her not being manipulative enough to have planned this from the get-go – obviously she has done just that. This baby is a PR tool for her agenda, nothing more. Fuck her.

So yeah.

Let them do their prayer war against reason and logic.

I’ll be over here, feeling deeply ashamed of the Collective idiocy and evil of these deranged psycopaths.

Here’s some background story.

Stupid girl meets guy on the Internet.
Marries him after meeting him ONCE.
Get pregnant with no education and only low paying jobs.
Is basically heading straight towards WHITE TRASH!

And now, her landlord is throwing her out, because he doesn’t want a noisy baby screaming all the time, fair enough for him/her/it, seeing as it’s private rental of a shitty little room.

Guess what? She’s fucked!

Nothing really happens until this gem pops up:

Silber N. Gord

I know what we have to do~

Get an abortion?

Of course, she’s seven months pregnant so that really isn’t an option.

Of course, as Jakk points out, they should probably have thought a bit ahead and not puke out a baby at a time where they hadn’t prepared at all.

And when you think about it, how can the parents be happy that their stupid offspring marry and get pregnant after meeting each other ONCE?

Answer, they can’t!

And as a few good proud citizens do point out:

White Trash? Well done indeed good sirs, you’ve read my mind. It’s not me of course, I just saw this when i made my monthly check-up using a proxy server. How could I resist? Hahaha.

And here comes Jakk again, a proud crusader against having kids when you have the mentality of a KID!

This next one needs no comments of any sort:

And then comes the extreme opinions, it wouldn’t be the Internet without the thoughts of the deranged and the foolish:

I’m still bewildered by this next piece here. I’m Danish, and I could theoretically afford an apartment, not with decent food, if I actually got a full-time job as say, a dishwasher, I could without any serious issues.

So how the hell can they NOT find an apartment with TWO incomes in the household? What are they spending the cash on? Japanese cartoons and candy?

Still, she fights on.

Stupidity makes you blind before the world.

It wouldn’t be the Internet without some bonehead doing something stupid:

Ian is a White Knight! He’ll happily defend even the most retarded causes ignore all logic and reasons! Drawn eternally the the light of the VAGINA!


And here comes the three musketeers! Athos, Porthos, and Aramis! No wait, isn’t Trainwrecker, Innocent and Killjoy!

And now our tale comes to a natural end, with the termination of the thread, alas, it may be erased from the fabric of it’s origin point.

But It’ll live on in our hearts, and on my site!

True, This! —
Beneath the rule of men entirely great,
The pen is mightier than the sword. Behold
The arch-enchanters wand! — itself a nothing! —
But taking sorcery from the master-hand
To paralyse the Cæsars, and to strike
The loud earth breathless! — Take away the sword —
States can be saved without it!

Welcome my children, to this Feature of the FORUM WATCH!

In which we once again shall mock the silly, insult the stupid and cleanse the idiotic. Always remember to insult idiots, no matter who they are, because if you don’t, they’ll just think what they are doing is a good thing, and Eris free Us from that.

We start with a timeless classic:

This thread started as a joke, Faerie Fortune wanted to joke around with the good old cliché of attention whores being bisexual, nothing special.

Except that our good old friend Rain saw it, and blew the entire joke into the stratosphere in his usual raging stupidity. Also, he admits he “likes to be the center of attention”, well no shit Mr. Stereotypical Flamboyant insecure poorly speaking Homosexual douchebag, we didn’t fucking know.

Moving on, far away from Animeleague, to a short special presentation on: How to spot a troll:

Let’s ignore the horrible title of this LJ community, and laugh at their utter failure to recognize a troll, I could tell you how, but that would be a breach of the Compact.

And now, for the Transgender Queen-King and King-Queen of this FORUM WATCH:


Somethingawful has this weird tendency to draw in both the singularly most brilliant people on the Internet, and the by far most “peculiar” and “unique”.

This is a case of a crazy women who marries some furry transgender guy, at a Convention, as a vaguely Zelda themed weeding.

Also, she’s fat.

A bit of Important backstory, read it you really care, let’s just say that this “lady” is a raging lunatic, and that she should be removed quietly from the genepool.

Also: Some more details can be found in the “happy” “Bride’s” journal:

Oh, and check this freak out: THE END TIMES

Look at the person on the far right, what sex is that?

Guess what, IT’S FEMALE!
