I've been a Fark user for a while now, and a few weeks back, Fark.com did a web redesign. I personally found the redesign a bit jarring and unnecessary, but its their site, and what do I care. However, when one of their moderators, "Jeff", told paying members of that site to get over it, many swore off fark.com as a sellout (it may just be) and left. Meanwhile, Fark.com is trying to take over ownership of user submissions, banning people for idle chatter it finds unsuitable, deleting posts of images of hot chicks, and generally turning into something acting like it was owned by Rupert Murdoch.
I was actually a paid member of Totalfark for all of one month (figured I'd try it before I decided I liked it or not) and while it was interesting, it wasn't worth $5 a month to me, especially after the site change. Doesn't really matter, Drew Curtis is rumoured to make around $600,000 a month from his site, which I find astounding if true. Plus he's selling a book, so good for him.
That brings me to bannination.com, which I found out through subtle posts on Fark.com. It's a site where all of the dissafected former paying members of totalfark (and probably some others) created a (still work in progress) answer to fark.com. I think it shows promise, considering it is only 3 weeks old. Hopefully they give Fark.com some good competition. Unfortunately I'm user number 688, and not 666. Which will haunt me to the day I die. But, its my own fault for signing up too late. So, today is invite all of your enemies to bannination.com day, and since everyone who reads my blog is probably an enemy of mine in some way or another, go for it.
How do you know if you are my enemy? Do you like the Toronto Maple Leafs? Do you hate me? Then you are my enemy, and you are obligated to sign up now.
