We'd have to observe the Law of Equivalent Exchange, though.  And "Homosortion" doesn't make a lot of sense.

I think 'Everything's Fucked' would be a lovely name for Osama's Jizzporium.

Fuck Games
Fuck the Media
Fuck Life / Fuck Me
Fuck Everything / Fuck Everyone / Fuck the World
Ye Olde Communal Fuckpile / Fuck Us / Fuck You (if Fuck Me is used for "Real Life")

Sounds a little too angsty, in retrospect.


Less themed suggestions:
games: [Solo/Lone] Joystick Waggler Club / New Games JournAAAGH MAKE IT STOP
media: Lesser Opiates of the Masses
real world: Grating Partisan Cheese / Grated Partisan Cheese
life: I Can't Believe It's Not MySpace (replace MySpace with Facebook or Livejournal, if desired)
community: [Ye Olde] Communal Fuckpile / Local Circle Jerk / Ego Land

I like the "Everything's Fucked" name, but I don't mind our present name either.

I would simplify the last one to just "WE ALL FUCK."

Yeah, "WANNA FUCK, KID?" Would give us a bunch of pedos, and the last thing we need is more Rydia fetishists.  :painful:

Right, we need more Tron Bonne fetishists.  It's all about attracting the right kind of paeadophile.

I kind of liked the barebones approach to board names.  I don't like getting assaulted with :sonic: ATTITUDE :knuckles: every time I come to the boards.

Meh, I gave it a half-hearted shot.

I really liked the originals (bolded) for ease of finding things.

I, for one, like the "Fuck" motif.

But honestly, I don't care too much.

I'm against the FUCK motif, simply because I do check the boards wherever I happen to roam, and don't want to give the wrong impression to any little kids who may frequent computers I use randomly.

...considering the content of these boards, wouldn't that be, uh, the right impression?

I support the current state of the boards. The "fuck" motif? Well, I'd like to have some shot at surfing the boards at work. When I get a job.

Names are names, doesn't REALLY matter a whole ton, though the simple old Real Life/Real World sort of thing, it was nice and clear.

Just please don't reorganize things so that the number and/or purpose of boards changes.  Because that always just gets headachey.

Do you understand how terrifying the words “vibrating strap on” are for an asexual? That’s like saying “the holocaust” to a Jew.

I... what?

I didn't edit that post. Er, if I did it was like two seconds after posting it.

It's not like I originally wrote "And I also think Hitler was justified in his methodology. Fuck orphans."

1 person likes 'em of 9 votes.  That is reason enough for me to arbitrarily change Sharkey's arbitrary changes.  Now it's time for Kazz to shine!
