I don't know if anyone shared this before, because the article seems pretty dated.
 but i ran into this website, which is going on ranting about and making fun of our forum

http://www.somethingawful.com/weekend-web/steampunk-forum/1/

i thought maybe some of you would want to know, expecially if your posts are quoted on there.

Actually that was pretty tame by their standards. Could have been a lot more insulting...

That place is looking a bit dead these days, used to be quite a major website back then.

I shouldn't worry about it too much given how old the article is and the fact that almost all of the people who's posts were featured are no longer active here.

That and judging by a quick poke around the site it seems to have been created to host as much outrage-mongering opinionated cr*p as possible in the name of being 'edgy' and making a feeble attempt to be "funny".

My local super's web servers block that website.... Probably dodgy sources are tied into it.

Part & parcel of being a Steampunk isn't it?  (Being made fun of that is)

Anyone actually know this Chris 'Kewpuh' Binkley? He seems to have posted a lot of crap in 2009 and 2010 but nothing after that.

Perhaps he died.

I'd say you did the right thing. I can't imagine that I'd appreciate having my online postings presented for public ridicule, and if nothing else, you've given the chance for a bit of schadenfreude.

Yeah, but even if you found out there were disparaging remarks about one of your posts somewhere, what, if any, could you do about it? Like the comments about my Sony laptop on the Internet, or when people stole my photos by cutting off the (giant sized) copyright advisory

Therein is the rub-
the web is the new lawless frontier.
once you post photos on the interwebs, you might as well consider them already stolen. Unless you hire the Yakuza, There is no recourse,
as the Law Enforcement Agencies are undermanned, overwhelmed and waaaaaaayyyyyy behind the curve.

Regarding comments, mockings, etc,  the web is the psudo-anonymous avenue of the unwashed uncultured trolls. Again, little to no recourse.

one reason that I seldom post photos, and ignore the "mocking sites" ....

It's a mind-over-matter thing.

I don't mind cuz they don't matter.

I can go to far better places than the internet to be laughed at/abused. Pretty much any family gathering for example....
