    "And don`t be fooled, they are continuing to post content in my name and other previous users/staff on the site to make people think we are still there. I assure you it is not any of us. We can all now be found here!"

    Why would they do that? Does anyone care about who posts stuff? You`d think they`d all be busy jumping up and down for joy that EBAUMS IS FINALLY QUITTING!

    You should be use to other people`s content being posted in your name, that was/is your entire business model.

    Not really, they started another site. And baums`s world continues. And Ebaumsworld will still be up, only run by different people.

    They both still suck though.

    This was posted in an employee`s blog on eBaums earlier this week, but was constantly taken down/re posted until the site finally censored the blog.

    And one of the comments on the blog read "Well I guess we could all go to I-am-bored.com"

    Brace for it people. You think my rantings are bad? Just wait until you get a taste of the vile, racist, sexist, misogynistic, ignorant, and unbelievably shocking things that those users post. Hope you mods are up to the task.

    I didnt thinkk of that! With ebaum gone the rest of the internet will suffer the fallout. Imagine, the force of a horde of underage pre-pubescent rednecks, all channelled on one site. Its gonna be a dark few months for the internet.

    On their website`s new home page it now says "If you are the original creator of material featured on this website and want it removed, please contact the webmaster."

    I`m not sure if that`s new or not (iab and Kontraband work just fine), but I`d be surprised if it was there under ebaum`s reign of terror.

    Ebaum`s is bad because they would crawl the internet, snag content, host it, but put their watermark on it and claim it to be theirs?

    Wait. Let me get this straight. Ebaum`s World lost its feature stealing, lying, thieving developer, and the site will continue on with a new team, who will most likely do exactly what Eric Bauman did? Forget that. The site wasn`t worth anyone`s time before, and it is definitely not gonna be worth anyone`s time in the future.

    Hopefully they never come back. Used to go on ebaum`s when I was like 13 ... crap on it grew old after 2 minutes. Got hooked on this site like 4 years ago and just now decided to make an account for the heck of it.

    I definitely do not like Ebaum`s humor any more... it`s too stale.

    i mean, how are you all not questioning the originality of this?
    if they were to run it under new staff, they would change the accounts! (or at least make new ones)

    Ummm

    I believe that if this is true....it is the best day of the Albino Blacks Sheep`s community.

    Eric stole so many things from us.......it`s only right that the f*cker is gone.

    An obvious hoax. If you really want to fool someone with something like this you have to spend more time working in minor supporting details.

    Anyone could have made that blog...
