Ten Thousand Posts

Something Awful This Way Comes ft. Nate Bethea

November 23, 2021

This week, Nate (@inthesedeserts) comes back on the Posts Pod to tell us about some internet history, and this little forum you might have heard of called "Something Awful". Following the death of Something Awful's founder, "Lowtax", Nate tells us how the forums shaped much of contemporary internet culture, ranging from terms like 'doxxing' and the ubiquity of trolls, to Lolcats, gifs, and uh, a lot of racism and Nazi insignia. But, it did also give us Dril, so who's to say if it was good or bad???
