Ape already went through the reasons why he quit and why KSK is no more. In short, Uproxx, who had hosted the site with little to no oversight for years, made it impossible for Ape and the writers to produce good, fun, and funny content in the manner that the site had always been run. They undercut the site’s SEO by promoting Uproxx Sports at the expense of KSK and they began exercising editorial control of both kontent and komments.

Since Black Friday however, Uproxx has shown just how deep their gutless turditude goes. It began by editing Ape’s goodbye post by removing the link to the copy of the deleted Bud Light #UpForWhatever post. Then, comments that were critical of Uproxx and the way they handled KSK began to disappear. Before long, myself and other kommenters were banned from posting comments on all of Uproxx’s network. All of my comments for the last three weeks, whether related to their cowardice or not, were deleted. No explanation was given.

How thin-skinned of a sack of shit do you have to be to ban critical comments ON THE FUCKING INTERNET? Have they ever been on the Internet? The comments sections of most internet sites is generally about as intelligent and well behaved as if you put White Doug, Louis Gomert, and an angry possum in an AOL chat room devoted to Planned Parenthood. (Uproxx would probably love that chat room though. They’d probably post a full review and then every 3 months they’d post a new article entitled “7 EPIC TAKEDOWNS YOU MAY HAVE MISSED FROM THE EPIC LOUIS GOMERT,WHITE DOUG AND EPIC ANGRY POSSUM EPIC DEBATE. EPIC.”).

It seems that Uproxx has decided that it’d rather be known as the Sarah Palin’s Facebook page of pop-culture websites than allow any dissent within their ranks. And I’m proud to say that DTZM has reported to us that in just the past 7 days, this little blog has gotten more than 5,000 unique visitors.

So I say with great pride and joy to our former Uproxx overlords: FUCK YOU, TWAT WAFFLES. We are doing just fine over here.

uproxx banned me from posting in june when i questioned obamas motives regarding muslims and mentioned a few pictures of him wearing a muslim ring and posted a few excerpts from the quran. I didn’t go on some crazy tirade spewing profanities or anything like that. My post was form an academic standpoint and not about ignorant hate. Just because you don’t agree with a users post is in my opinion not a reason to ban someone from posting. This isn’t north korea.

Fuck Uproxx. I went there to see the post titled The Future of KSK and saw that some of my comments were taken down. I mean honestly what the fuck did they hope to accomplish by doing that? Other than showing what thin skinned pussies they are. Sadly a once great institution has been corrupted and neutered by corporate assholes. Fuck them where they breathe.

I came to Uproxx through KSK and I will be leaving through the same door. The content had taken a huge dip in the last few months and obviously after the original crew had moved out. The komments kept that shit going. You all are some funny people but it wasn’t enough. And why should it have been? Companies’ objectives change every day and customers one day are trash the next. KSK fell on its sword and died with honor and maybe Uproxx will never know the difference. BUT I am super fucking pumped to see where this place goes. See the content get thrown up and batted around and getting back to that free space is just the bees knees.

THATS GOOD HUSTLE.

Fuck uproxx. I don’t understand people who live on their knees for a paycheck (not you Dana DeArmond. You’re an artist doing the Lord’s work). KSK, WithLeather, and basically all the shit that Ufford had a hand in was unique on the iterwebs. It was stupid but not stupid stupid.

KSK gave us PFTCommenter. How does anyone choose Bud Light — not beer and not even American anymore — over something weird and quirky like KSK? It’s not like Miller wouldn’t have picked up the slack. These cum belchers get plenty of traffic, they don’t have to bend over for anyone. Fuckin’ punk ass bitches.

I don’t take any real responsibility for the maintenance of this site, but occasionally I see an unapproved comment just sitting in the queue and I approve it. I’ve done this about a dozen times since DFO opened up and this one’s my favorite.

Hiya fellow kommentariat. I’ve been more of a lurker/livebrog participant than anything since the blogspot days, but I’m so glad to have stumbled onto this site. You all deserve hard slaps on the ass.

Danger is only reason I stop by Uproxx. Well, him and to rightfully bust Dustin’s balls. I’ve just stop going to KSK. I will stop by to see how their 1st live-blog goes. Very curious on the traffic they’ll see.

I was going to continue visiting only for Danger, Vince (Filmdrunk) reviews, and some Dan Seitz gaming posts. But since I’m banned from commenting… I just don’t know. I wonder when we’ll see those three decided to hop off the Uproxx train.

Upfeed, er… Buzzroxx… er, Uproxx has become terrible. Forcing the dismantling of my beloved KSK was just the nail in the coffin. Fuck them right in the ear.

Imagine my surprise.
After a 12 day hiatus due to technical difficulties(motherboard shat itself)I come back to KSK to find it a smoking ruin.
One of the banned Kommentars I was following was kind enough to let me know about this place.
I stayed at KSK because of the Komments,not in spite of them.
Twat waffles indeed.

Allow me to send out the Spilly Signal…

Its a SHAME how Uproxx treated Xmas Ape. I understand it is a business but what happend to STAND BY YOUR MAN? Uproxx would stand by their greed like Obamas Iran deal while Ape did all he could?! I’m sorry but I was a pop up advertisment fan for decades and will always type on the my Windows XP but Uproxx no more! They need to understand you can’t treat people that way and I will be a Bud Light drinker for life but Uproxx’x actions have SHOWN THEYRE TRUE COLORS! My cousin told me that there is no way these edits would hold up iin a court of law but aren’t we a nation of laws? I’m sure Matthew Rosthstein has his lawyers but will he know the touch of a KOTW certificate I think not! I’m sorry but the internet is not private proprty. Sorry not sorry but those content sluts have ditched a community of likeminded commenters for a cummunity of likeminded SLUTS! But it doesn’t matter because we’re ready to be back for SUPER BOWL 50!!!!!

Seriously, unless you’re an on duty cop or a 4th grader, stop drinking Bud Light. Move on to whiskey or some local shit. Anheuser-Busch got bought out by some Belgians. They’re off-brand French. That’s gotta be the bottom of the barrel.

Obviously InBev sucks (I will admit Leffe Braun is pretty good), but are you really shitting on Belgian beer? I mean, Chimay, St Bernardus, Pyraat… oh god I wish I wasn’t at work right now.

It didn’t have to be this way.
We could have worked together, used your mildly amusing attempts at sports wit and my parent’ corporations vast amoral apparatus of greed to achieve mutual greatness.
The sheer amount of lost monetization opportunity here is STAGGERING.

But fine, we see how it is.

Not sure if I’m banned but my comments are at least being moderated since I spammed the True Detective thread with comments equating Uproxx editors with basketball-fucking monkeys.

Also check out the fantasy football team names thread. The hardcore porn at the end as been there three days and no one’s picked up on it.

Does the hardcore porn involves basketballs and monkeys.

I swear I have not been going around the DC metro area putting random DFO posts on laptops in the apple or best buy stores or when asking random strangers if I could borrow their phones.

As a longtime lurker I was sad to see KSK go but I think we have something just as good here if not better. Now we have a site ruled by the people and for the people!

Do you have a cat? We used to have a cat that delighted in going outside, apparently bathing in the shit, and then coming in at night and snuggling next to me, covering my arms in itchy rashes.

I never made the connection until she got hit by a car and died and I stopped getting poison ivy.

I confess to having mixed feelings about that car.
