The Infatuation with Maddox

Postby Red Stripe » Tue Sep 13, 2005 10:05 pm

Ok I don't know if anyone agrees with me but what is up with the lots of people's infatuation of Maddox(the internet joke dude). I mean he is kind of funny but he uses the same type of material and same type of approach on everything: Bashing. Every single piece of humor he comes out with is bashing someone or something. Why does he have to be so damn negative all the time? I mean he criticizes almost everything and probably has never said one nice thing about someone in his life.

Who is he to talk, I'm figuring a guy who most likely spends most of his time on the computer, with most of that time put into bashing people, isn't exactly the smartest, best looking, or most talented guy in the world. Seriously, I would pay someone a lot of money to write an article or page bashing on Maddox or something. He was funny when I first read him but after a while he just got so damn annoying to read. If bashing people was outlawed he would easily be out of ideas.

Anyone else think this?

It's just the way the world is now. Welcome to it. :-/
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Your post is just like a Maddox rant, just without the humor. If the negativity of his site gets on your nerves, simply don't read his material.

I don't know if you've noticed, but bashing is funny.

The reason Maddox is popular is because he really goes against the status quo, crosses the line repeatedly and represents the last truly free speech frontier in our country: the Internet.

A lot of you were quick to jump on me about some of my opinions because they were negative. Don't you think we need more people stepping up and actually going against what the media, big business and the "religious right" want us to think?

Personally I think Maddox presents a refreshing perspective because it really is so crass. It's like that "this is what people think but not what they say." Although I doubt many people agree with most of what he says, you have to respect his ability to cause so much controversy with nothing but a website and a keyboard.

His page is blocked in certain countries that don't respect the constitutional right of free speech we have here, yet there's people here that think his website should be shut down too.

It's almost as frightening as the FCC wanting to censor cable networks like HBO and Cinemax. I mean, I don't know what I'd do without my late night soft-core.

:-B <--- This is me feigning surprise that those words came out of your mouth... er... fingers.

Anyways, yes, this country loves negativity. Just look at all of the unreality shows. They love to show people fail. I don't like it, either, but luckily for me, I am adept at ignoring it.

How good am I at ignoring that stuff? I've never even heard of this Maddox guy.
