I was going to say something similar but didnt wanna rustle any jimmies when I'm not listed in the OP. pretty funny to be leading (losing) in the other thread and not even nominated here. I guess Riverman likes me.
fwiw i never got why 12. carson palmer became such a phenomenon. he went like 18th in the communal qb draft iirc, of all of the ridiculous things that a casual fan newcomer might say that seems to rank pretty low.
First off, I second/third whatever motion to remove PHB from this list. He's like the GREEAR south of the Mason/Dixon line. Tons of volume, intermittent quality, loads of heart. Part of his life cycle is to blow up then re-emerge like the Phoenix.
For awful posting and pure volume it's hard to beat MT2R.
ksu has to get the worst QPP (Quality Per Post) rating of 2012 (minimum 500 posts). To cap it off with the fact that he's a bible beater, I think he gets my vote.
BDidd seems to keep his AIDS contained to when he's talking about little kids getting raped.
Come on, Iggy is nowhere near the level of suck as MT2Raids or Bdidd.
Did you people read the Penn State thread? Bdidd is like historically awful.
TZ was once a readable thread. Where all free thinkers could join in and discuss relevant topics like how white Anthony Parker was or what kind of candy Lamar Odom was eating.
Then Iggy came in and made his presence known. He loomed over the thread with a dark cloud of PER nonsense and a lack of understandable not imaginable by the normal human being. Even as the posters united to tell him what an ass **** moron he was, he rose again. He cannot be killed by logic, trolling, or any other forum technique.
He is the villain of TZ and his awfulness knows no bound.
There is of course a lot of really bad posting in SE. I've gone through and, with the help of the bad p0ster thread, identified what I think are the worst of the worst in an effort to identify the single worst poster of the year. And I must say, it has been a banner year for horrible SE posting, possibly the most AIDS infested year in the forum's history.
Without further ado, here are the nominees:
brandoncla - this poster started off strong by AIDSing up the NFL discussion threads basically every week, where he gained fame with his patented 12. Carson Palmer meme. Although he was initially a strong candidate who was wrong about everything, in recent months he has improved vastly and is now merely a below average poster.
MyTurn2Raise - a frontrunner. While already generally AIDS coming into the year, he really stepped up his troll/idiot game this year. He was already doing a pretty good job of cementing himself as one of SE's worst when the Packers and Seahawks played this season, after which he went on what I firmly believe is the worst prolonged stretch of posting in SE history. You'd think it would be impossible to compete with such idiocy, but you'd probably be wrong. Keep reading.
Ikestoys - placeholder
PHB - this was a banner year for PHB. For most of the year he was doing his usual below average posting routine, making inappropriate jokes, inexplicably getting butthurt about ginger comments, and reporting posts that made him MAD. Then out of nowhere he had one of the all-time SE meltdowns complete with a rant about Dids raping his cats 'on the regular.' It was arguably a top 5 bad posting stretch in SE history, thus his inclusion in the competition.
Bdidd - It has been a while, so I fear people forget just how terrible he was in the Penn State thread. Dozens of kids were of course raped, but goddammit why wouldn't anyone think of those poor PSU football fans? Just pure AIDS for weeks on end which of course resulted in a really long stretch of his name in the title of the bad posters thread.
ksuno1stunner - A late arrival on the bad posting scene, ksuno1stunner was a terrible homer for Kansas State, posting obnoxious nonsense basically all season. Still, he was just your garden variety moran until he appeared in the KC Chiefs shooting thread, where he got off the below blast. With most people I'd just assume it was some weird combo of trolling/leveling, but if you review this guy's body of work it becomes apparent that yes, he really is this stupid.
Systolic - If this were a dumb poster contest he would win hands down. But I honestly don't think he has enough intelligence to make it into WOAT territory. Just constant Falcons homerism, making horrible arguments, etc. Oh yeah, hes a POGer who apparently has a shady past.
