    Anyone here a fan of his site?

    I think a lot of what he says is really funny, and often he's right. It's a pretty popular website too. I respect that he doesn't allow banners and other adds on his site. More room for the hilarity. :)

    I love his writing, totally hilarious. The "Tribute to Real Men" and the Children's artwork are some of my favorites. The whale article is really good too. Cant wait for the book and comic :D

    Can't friggin wait til his book and comic book are published.

    I can't get enough of him. I'll buy the book and comic as soon as they come out.

    I like the piece on 'Sideways'.

    "If you liked Merlot before seeing the movie, then why do you let a movie change your mind??? And why the **** are you drinking merlot int he first place?"

    Now with more irrational rage.

    Maddox is the most politically incorrect person alive, which is why he is so damn funny.

    My guess he is some talking head for a TV or radio station who has to be nice all the time, and that is how he vents.

    Doesn't he have anything better to do than write this useless sensationalist website thats almost as polarized as the views he expresses?

  11. Maddox is fun in small doses.

    I remember a page that was hosting one of those videos of someone doing something stupid. There was a forum of people that were a bunch of wannabe Maddoxes. Between the forum owner begging for money for bandwidth and the pathetic loser forum members spewing toothless (but clever :smug: ) insults at the stupid person in the video and anyone that would post that THEY were the idiots.

    Yeah, it's nice to rant, it's funny to make fun of people, it's cool to be cooler than everyone else- it's also indicative of a very unhappy person.

    He does work a full time job, and who cares anyway? It's his right to say what he wants, just as it is yours to denounce him. I suggest you write him a hate mail, so I can read it!

    I dont hate him, and i wouldnt waste my time sending him hate mail. I just think that theres a certain duality to the site - hes raging against people who rage... If i were a neo-psycologist i'd call it "fashionable anger" since i'm not ill call it "******ish behaviour" ;)

    How much time did you spend on his site? 30 seconds? He doesn't rage against people who rage really. Go through an read his stuff, check out the pics, THEN come post. :D

    Ive read most of the articles on the site at some point or another. I dont see how that is relevant really. He is a rebel without a cause.

    My dad, my mom, and 4 out of 5 teachers called me a rebel without a cause one day.

    No, they didn't talk to eachother.


    I felt pretty punk.
