YTMND v EbaumsWorld

Not exactly current events...

A significant portion of YTMND history unfolded in January 2006 in what was known as the "YTMND/eBaum's World War". After Eric Bauman - the owner of eBaum's World - hosted and watermarked a Lindsay Lohan montage created by a ytmnd.com user on his site without crediting the original author. In response to Bauman's actions, users from ytmnd.com joined users from other internet communities, namely Something Awful, LUElinks, Newgrounds, 4chan and FARK. These groups invaded using spam posts, DDoS, repeatedly crashing and ultimately cracking the eBaum's World forums. The attacks began shortly after 11:00 PM EST on January 7, 2006 and ended on January 10, 2006. Max Goldberg did not promote or endorse the attacks but rather condemned them. He stated that they "really [crossed] the line," that they were a "vulgar display of power" and went on to say that any YTMND author whose site promoted attacks would have their account deleted. Goldberg elaborated by saying that the recent conflict had placed both himself and his hosting company in a negative light. On January 10th eBaum's World alleged the attacks, were a form of cyber-terrorism and on January 11 Neil Bauman (Eric Bauman's father, who works under his son as the Executive Vice President of ebaumsworld), stated publicly that arrests were being made in relation to the attacks. Eventually Goldberg and Bauman came to an agreement, with Bauman removing the image from his site in return for Goldberg removing any reference to "eBaum" from ytmnd.com. Despite the resolution of the conflict, ytmnd.com experienced DDoS attacks on the morning of January 12th. There are numerous sites promoting and glorifying the attacks, particularly a YTMND Hall of Famer by the username of Boomaga in which one of Bauman's cease-and-desist letters is read in the manner of a Shakespearean actor.

I like 4chan (/a/b/c/f/) better than both of them now. eBaums isn't all that funny and YTMND got hit by a massive storm of fail in the form of s***ty YTMNDs and the shutdown of the temp forums. I've basically switched from spending 70% of my online time at YTMND to spending 80% of my time online at 4chan.

YTMND steals things from 4chan. Which is kind of a good thing (sort of) since things on a board such as /b/ get deleted quickly, whereas things on YTMND aren't deleted unless they're illegal. In short, I think of YTMND as a more reliable /b/ and as a place to download the "Emo Song" should I ever need to format my HD and in turn delete it.

I said EBaums since it brings everything good on the net to one place. Also, YTMND is good, some of the movies/music/flashes are really good, but some of the flashes are pointless/plan ol' craparoo.

98 percent of the teenage population has tried some type of drug or underage drinking at some point. Put this in your sig if you like potatoes.

I don't like either one of them. There should be a "neither" voting option.
