    Good fucking riddance. His vids are funny, but outside of them he is a giant ass with no respect for anyone. The rape joke was the last straw that broke the camel's back.

    Spoony's game reviews are pretty funny, and the movie reviews where he's in character are funny too. It's the videos of him being himself I cannot stand. Probably the only vlog reviewer I know who will make a long scathing movie review, and then team up with another vlogger to talk for another 40 or so minutes about bashing the movie some more.

    Referring to the DOTM movie review BTW.

    At any rate, I'm both surprised and not surprised (if that makes any sense) that he's being booted.

    Good. Acting like a complete cock to those who support you and your living is never a good idea, regardless of what you do and especially when you are being punished and watched like a hawk for acting that way to begin with.

    Granted, I also have an unreasonable hatred toward the whole MY LIFE IS MAKING VIDEOS FOR THE INTERNET fad. Cannot wait for that bubble to burst.

    Shame, he was my favorite reveiwer on the site. Now I guess I'll only be going there for Critic, Linkara and Phelous videos, and Phelous is REALLY starting to become unfunny. Also, I just go to Brad's site for Snob and 80's Dan.

    I saw the tweet, I could tell it was a joke. It's not like anyone on the site has never made a joke like that before.

    I wish him the best of luck and will continue to support him through his site.

    And no, I don't find rape jokes funny.

    I think Spoony made some really funny vids. I like off-colour humour so I'm not too concerned with any comments he made. I make comments like that all the time, only usually in face-to-face situations.
    The people who should really be ashamed are the staff at TGWTG. They run a humour site yet can't take a joke? Get real and stop being so prudish.
    Now I guess I'll just have to watch the Ultima retrospective on Blip.

    Dude. There is a difference between joking around in a humorous video about something, and jumping on Twitter to send "Y'know, if things don't work out with you and @Nash076, I'd be happy to chain you to a pipe in my basement and love you. My way." to her and her boyfriend, out of fucking nowhere with no prior context.

    It's like walking up to someone as they're doing their thing and going "Hey, how about I drag you out back and bash your head in with a baseball bat!". Is that funny? No, it makes you sound like a fucking psychopath.

    EDIT: The rape joke isn't why he got fired BTW, before people start thinking that.

    So what are they going to do with the 4th year anniversary? Noticed the fans on the tgwtg forum saying just to put the elephant in the room character in every scene he's in.

    It wasn't the reason, but it sure did spark the flames.

    I'm a bit of a twisted person, I guess. I'm not saying what he did was right, I'm just saying that, if Noah is anything like me in his sensibilities, he wasn't being serious. The fact there is a thread on this board talking about it means he probably accomplished what he set out to do. We're all talking about it. I'm sure that some people who've never watched a Spoony video are at least aware of who he is now. Any publicity is good publicity, IMO

    The thing is, not everybody shares that sense of "humour."
