I thought it was going to be about declaring threads over after someone makes a great post.  But no, it was even dumber than that.
Probably not a Goat, either.

These things are getting so stupid I can't tell if they're actually false flag articles by secret Fedoras or real articles written by idiots.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

That's been the state of videogame journalism since the early 00's.

Before then it was just magazines.
Not a winner anymore.

Also known as "old fashioned" corruption.

New school corruption so fresh and in your face it dares you to call it corruption while actively doing corrupt things
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

For real though it's another thing that's so retarded that I can't tell if it's parody or not.
I'm leaning towards no because people are garbage. But this is maybe too much garbage?

I dunno, man.

Yay manspreading again.  I like this topic because it has zero relevance to my life.  I'm out in the suburbs.  I drive places or get a ride with a friend, I don't take public transport.  A manspreading rant is as relevant to me as a manifesto on sexist fishing practices in the Amazon basin.  Could be a huge problem, could be completely made up, I wouldn't know either way.

I thought manspreading was pretty comprehensively shut down when someone pointed out women put their handbags on the seat next to them.

Turns out people like their personal space and enjoy explaining things to other people. We never had to blame these things on men in the first place.

I'm pretty sure manspreading isn't even a thing most people complain about. It just seems that way because whenever someone on the fringe does, it blows up and gets attention. It isn't worth paying attention to.

That said, I do occasionally ride the tram next to guys who have their knees really far apart, but it doesn't exactly happen much more often than someone carrying a massive bag in their lap that takes up roughly the same amount of space. And it's usually a moot point anyway, because within a stop or two I need to stand up to make room for a limping granny.
