These guys were featured on the past Weekend Web, but I figured I would give them another go -- since they really deserve it, and because it's Thanksgiving and I don't feel like finding another ALOD. Really, though, if anybody deserves to be made fun of, it's these guys. They take the Internet so seriously that it's almost too easy to bait them into a frothing egoistical rampage. It's sad but also amusing, much like watching a puppy with downs chase its own tail for hours on end.
I'm not going to give you all the backstory of why I’m picking on these guys, but let's just say that they were the ones that found me and invaded my site for no real reason. It was a harmless invasion, and fairly amusing for a while, but after reading their forums I felt it was my obligation to share them with the rest of the Internet. To spread the joy, if you will. No need to thank me. Think of this as a holiday present from me to you, the Internet customer.
