BYOB is a casual place where chill people can post conversationally, a refuge from the high-effort academic theory discussion and high-level meta-ironic humor you can find elsewhere on the SA Forums.

BYOB is where people post when they don't want to worry about what they're posting and if it's good," and that explanation comes from someone who likes the place! Traditionally Goons close their eyes while drawing animals to give their work a charmingly crude feel, but in BYOB, that aesthetic just comes naturally.
