    Is any of that song true? Because if that is... then he`s a genius. A bad genius, but a genius nonetheless.

    You know what I hate about ebaums? The fact that whatever media they give, it`s ok to make any stupid comment you like. And most of the time it had nothing to do with the topic.

    Example: "drat you lard ass, lick my nuts... I got hemmorids so smell it!"

    (Random comment found on Ebaums...) I literally just chose one at random. drat Ebaums.

    Eric being the whore he is sold his site thinking he`d keep working for him. Well the big dogs of the company came down and told him and his crew to get the drat out of their office and ran him off his own site. Now he`s got some pooty blog and generic forums

    @RoyCassanova,
    The website is owned by the company started by Eric Bauman which in turn was sold in 2008 to ZVUE who is now firing him and all his staff. So Ebaums world isn`t technically going to go down, though its probably going to have more ethical business practices.

    Yep, it`s Neil Cicierega. I was thinking the same thing, and then at the end they said "Music by Trapezoid," and that`s one of Neil`s bands.

    And +5 points for it being a rival, and a sucky one at that. Though I don`t really want Ebaum`s readers over here.

    And wait, is the site no longer working, or does nobody go to it anymore. I just tried it and the site works (sadly)

    Message to me from an ebaum refugee I guess:

    "Ebaum don`t own this site anymore. He has a new one in the building stages. You will enjoy it more than this. You have to give them time to get the site up to full song. It is still in the designing process, but you can talk in the forum section till then."

    Um I don`t think I will...

    ebaums was great back in the day, in fact the forums were hilarious when it first started. They pioneered the viral and game sites like this one. The reason it got a bad name was because somethingawful and 4chan and ytmnd (basically the same people) combined forces and spread the word that ebaums had no orginal content and stole everything. It was the first mainstream forum war and ebaums was a younger crowd of douchey kids so they lost big time to the adult office cubicle worker anime underwear types at the other sites.

    Ebaums sucks now.

    Back in the days when I was ignorant of the ways of the net I stumbled onto ebaums every now and then for a pic or two. But then I found i-am-bored and never went back.

    I wonder if I`ll still be visiting iab 30 years from now?

    The difference is in the watermark and where they sap their videos from.

    Fark.com and somethingaweful do the same, it`s not all original content, whereas Newgrounds, as lame as it is, is mostly original artists that put their stuff on there... I love you Tom Fulp and Dan Paladin, gimme more Castle Crashers!!!

    Duch, we link to the original and do not claim that it`s ours.

    It`s like the difference between stealing and.. not... stealing...

    opiebreath, most of the time the links are redirected content that still opens on the i-a-b website providing trafic to the i-a-b website.

    In a way it`s stealing traffic.

    Not sure how you figure eBaum`s is dead; also not sure how you figure that I-A-B is any better. I-A-B is butt ugly, antiquated, and has on numerous occassions been exploited to serve up spyware, etc.

    I-A-B has a reputation, but that`s about all it has. Look at its growth charts, and you`ll see that it`s clearly losing ground.
