Eh, i'm sure a lot of you have heard about this guy, and his site But i was just wondering what you all thought of well, one the way he thinks, and 2. if you agree or disagree with what he says.

http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=episode3

That is on the recent movie "star wars episode 3"

Personally i think this guy is a moron, because well 1. he loves to contradict himself, which i won't get too much into. And two, i think he acts this way to basically just be different. Besides the fact that 1. anakin turns to the dark side to save padme then trys to kill her then as darth vadar says "omg is padme ok?" it was still a good enjoyable movie. This thread isn't solely about Star wars it's about all his little remarks about all stuff on his site
http://maddox.xmission.com/

I was just wondering your opinion that's all. If a mod sees this as advertising you can edit and close the thread, if you see it as a future flame war, again you can close it. or i'll just delete it.

When visiting a site that clearly is a person's personal domain to express his opinion, albeit you disagree with it or not.

I don't see a point in creating a thread about it, when there really is no right answer.

My advice, don't take anything he says seriously. I doubt even he takes half the stuff he says seriously. It's just funny ass ****, read it for the laughter.

"I am able to detect subtle emotional changes in someone's personality like fear, but I was somehow unable to detect a conspiracy involving 200 000 STORMTROOPERS AND EVERYONE IN THE ENTIRE ****ING REPUBLIC!"

I almost pissed my pants right there, haha.

It *should* go without saying that he writes to press peoples' buttons and make people laugh, but since it needs to be said, you may reread the first sixteen words of this sentence to reassure yourself.

I've seen Episode 3 and I happen to agree with most of his points. I just personally didn't see it as a very good movie, and I felt he pointed out the flaws pretty well, even if he exaggerated them. I didn't really see any personal contradictions in that review, but I could just be missing it. The fact of the matter is, just because you liked Star Wars Episode 3 doesn't mean he's a jerk, same as thinking he has good points doesn't mean you have Episode 3.

well yeah though i don't like him, he does prove some good points, and he's funny. And of course he is entitled to his own opinion. Like when he said "at the end he took a **** on the script" i literally fell out of my chair laughing. (I also find his hate mail to be more humorous then his "articles" i guess you would call them)

And Synth, I know that this thread doesn't have much of a point, hence I put it in Off Topic. I just wanted to know what some people here thought of his articles or himself in general that's all.

Yeah, don't take Maddox seriously, like Mr. Boyster said, he just loves to push buttons. He's probably one of the main reasons why people think it's cool to be a jerk on the interweb.

I totally agree with pineapple. Although he is really harsh and just makes it this harsh to offend people he is ****ing hilarious! And all his arguments are fool proof, most of the times it aren't the best arguments but you can't take them down. The first time i discovered his site the only thing i could do was laugh...btw you should check his article about the amount of visitors he gets (its more than McDonalds etc)..

Who would visit a site about McDonalds anyways?

So they can hear unlimited remixes of the jingle, "I'm lovin' it?"

Yeh Maddox is a funny bastard. Back when I first found it I sent him an email and he actually replied, which I thought was rather odd. I felt special :laff: .

If you like this guy though, you should read some stories from www.tuckermax.com as he is equally as funny. Big warning though, he's very very crude and it's not for people that are politically correct. I actually find Tucker Max funnier.

I think his arguments are always good, and he really knows how to make a point. I love reading his stuff, and the harshness just makes it funnier. He voices opinions that a lot of people agree with, but aren't really worth the time or inclination for most people to base a website on it. I personally love reading it, just to realise how much I agree with the stuff he's saying.

He updates once a month at best, he's writing a book, he also might be doing a comic book. You spend more time on this forum than he does on his website. So who is wasting their time? ;)

And rightfully so. The guy's smart and a friggin' hilarious writer. I love seeing how many people are stupid enough to take him completely seriously.

Yep, the only thing funnier than Maddox is when people take Maddox seriously and blow a gasket/send him hatemail. I love his site. XD

I love when people send Maddox hate mail, as if Maddox broke into their homes, and threatened to plunder their treasure, and rape the women, or whatever pirates do, unless they read his site. Nobody forces his opinions down your throat, where do they get off forcing theirs down his?

"OMGOSH, I READ YOUR SITE UNDER MY OWN WILL, AND I DISAGREE, YOU ARE NOW A HOMO, AND I AM GOING TO E-MAIL YOU AND TELL YOU."
