Adverts and popups of all sorts! Flash ads, popup ads, popunder ads, animated gif ads, talking ads, music ads, javascript ads, alert ads, ads ads ads and popups and ads! Very little content, most of the time there isn't any. You can pay $80 a month to get their popup and advert filled forums. It's a wonderful site if you like ads and popups.

yeah i remembr that it was on mtv a while ago, i'd recomend you watch the lecture kayanka gave in illinois (however you spell it) .... somethingawfull.com rules, they raised $25000 for the hurricane (also ... spelling?) katrina (ahaa! i believe it is infact spelled "caitriona") and paypal wouldn't accept it! can you fucking believe that, they're based in new orleans aswell, and they wouldn't fucking accept $25000 because they wouldn't believe kayanka was going to donate it all .... unfuckingbelievable! there'll be the story somewhere on the site, hell, i'll find the link (5 minutes pass)

.................ok i couldn't find it (they may have lost it because they were using alternative servers because theirs were down due to the hurricane) but here's a news link: http://www.ecommercetimes.com/rsstory/46325.html

still a fantastic site though!

Their forums rock, but they're a bit... elitist. One slip up and you're out (they cost $9.95 to join). Perfect grammar is a must.

Edit: they're the 7th largest western forum.

One man has the commas.
One man has the full stops.
One man has the capitalization.
One man has the hyphen.
One man has the spell-check.
One man has the return key.
One man has the colon.
One man has the semi-colon.
