Where else would 13-year-olds pretend to be billionaire Ferrari owners if it weren’t for Internet Forums?


I thankfully stayed away from the forum world when I was getting into cars, and mostly just read old articles on the great Muscle Car Club and Ultimate Car Page. I think I missed most of the horrible terror of having to pretend like I knew what I was talking about, or pretending to care about who was pretending to actually own some car I didn’t care about.

But working here at Jalopnik has exposed me to the brilliant shining light of terror/wonder that is forum life. This post giving the rundown on a dude crashing his BMW into a house sticks out in my mind as a particularly sweet moment.


What was the worst shitstorm that you ever witnessed on a forum?

Worst forum shit storm ever seen? Easy. Go to any thread on Gawker or Jezebel, make a comment where you might appear to not be a left wing liberal nut job. You could tell them the sky is blue. However, if they even THINK you are a Republican (even if thats not the case), not only is the sky NOT blue, but you are an asshole inbred hick dumb fuck who is uneducated, hates women, minorities, gays, have a small dick, etc and a hundred people will pile on your comment with such insults. You might as well have punched a baby in a stroller.
