    The worst internet forums I've seen are:

    - Halomods

    - Yahoo answers (if it counts)

    - RP forums in fanfiction.net

    - Bulbagarden

    I'd say Bulbagarden is the worst mainly because the staff is corrupt as ****. They take advantage of their positions to ban whoever believes in God and has an opinion that differs from their own.

    They also use it as an online political recruitment center. By this, I mean that they support the causes of certain users, let them violate the rules without getting infracted, and in return the bulbagarden staff members think they'll get rewarded with votes for their political party.

    So in other words, they're a pack of fascists who take advantage of a Pokemon forum to punish those they disagree with and gain new political supporters.

    Overall, I'd say that has some of the worst staff members a Pokemon website has ever seen.

    In retrospect, looking at Tumblr, I'd have to say that any forum focused around Adventure Time has to be one of the worst. Also Wreck-It Ralph, but I guess that that's been out a comparatively short amount of time. Yes, I say this despite my great distaste for the communities of first-person shooters, even going to a board about one of those would be better than sitting around an Adventure Time board. But that's another topic.

This is the reason. If they want to improve their reputation, they need to improve their attitude toward people that give them constructive criticism, and them rationalizing or denying it is not going to make them look any better.
    Basically this.

    About halfway through, you stopped making sense. Or maybe they stopped making sense.

    Neogaf, the people there are pretty stupid plus the fact that they are a bit closed off.

    That's a hypothetical personification, as these kinds of conversations don't happen, but that's the general idea of how it is. The corrupt mods make themselves look like saints to the users they manipulate for personal gain.

    So basically, they're complete ******* liberals? Because the "ban anyone who believes in God" sounds like militant atheism, which is the ground of liberals who don't understand what liberalism is.

    I'm pretty sure any forum that Steve Bovis was ever a member of couldn't possibly have much intelligent content to its name, assuming that that was indeed one of the boards Bovis went on. (For those not in the know, Steve Bovis is one of the people behind one of the most famous cases of plagiarism in the history of video games.)

    XBox.com used to be fricken awesome, but they did an entire layout change sometime earlier in the year.. or last year.. I forget which.. and they made it horrible. the layout made no sense and it was so hard to find everything afterwards.

    I stopped going after that. But it's okay 'cause someone from it made a new one that a bunch of us go to !

    As other people have mentioned youtube comments in general are awful, just plain awful.


    As for my limited experience, the sports forum(s) I were apart of were kind of bad. It started off small, we changed sites as we gained members. There were trolls/a-holes but that's how things go. One guy threatened to kill my pregnant girlfriend and eat my unborn child after making a Beastie Boys reference. Then for no real reason, massive forum wide fights would happen every month, and mods either took sides or stepped in way too late. Eventually the admins announced that the site will be merging with a bigger forum, and surprise, it sparked another fight. A few short months (I couldn't log on during that time for some reason) later they unmerged. Any guesses as to why? Yup, more fights. So I found my way here and stayed. The forum has since gone through 3 more site changes.

    TL;DR Cool story brotato.

    I don't even spend much time outside of the games forum on Bmgf and I can tell that this is so hilariously untrue it hurts. At the absolute best, a section of members is like that. Most not being staff.

    The mods on Bulbagarden are indeed awful. A shame, because the forum itself looks really good.

    Awful is putting it rather lightly. I would put a description of just how terrible they are right here, although the mods might infract me for doing so.

    :P

    However, I don't think there's any word strong enough to display just how scummy the bulbagarden moderators are. And the bulbagarden administrator (I won't show her name here), she is by far the most worthless piece of **** I've ever seen on a Pokemon forum.

    Out of curiosity, what are the moderators you are referring to? Or do you mean all of them? You don't need to post here, you can PM if you want.
    Because I kinda agree with you, most moderators in there are scumbags, but there are one or two which aren't that bad (and they are 'new' mods, maybe that is the reason).

    The Warrior Cats fourm, that place is full of trolls and people who bash against something others like out of the blue, and then don't get banned for it, even though it is against the rules. I don't even go on there that much anymore its that bad. -.-

    ironically, this entire forum

    everyone takes themselves too seriously basically everywhere except for misc polls, and the only subforum that's actually structured to be super serious (the debate forum) is a cesspool of children trying to debate about politics, politicians, and people like biglutz who don't understand that "stubbornly cling to my point of view even after basically everything reputable says i'm wrong" is a good way to troll and not a good way to debate

    also by extension, bulbagarden, since i'm pretty sure biglutz is actually a mod there.

    Virtually any Sonic or My Little Pony forum will do, given the large amount of trolls, purist fans, and people who complain about changes.

    Most internet forums are either dead or have several factions that fight among each other. But then there's another level of forums that are really awful because of their hateful and racist purpose. And are just plain ignorant, beyond anything you could ever find even in serebii.

    These are forums like stormfront, vnnforum, chimpout forums, and freerepublic which are just cesspools of the worst things mankind has to offer.

    But... It is impossible to not complain about the changes they did in the Sonic franchise. :P

    You'll find those three kinds of people in every fandom.

    I'd have to say PI Forums.

    Because the mods there are just horrible. A) They are to lax and b) they don't give proper warnings and explanations as to keep people from going off the deep end.

    I think I managed to find a forum just as bad, if not worse, than PTCGO: the Gameloft Forums. The mods let spam run rampant, and all they ever do are post the same response when people need help with something (directing them to Gameloft Support, which isn't good either) and edit posts to censor them. *facepalm*

    this one

    seriously i can't even post cussies what is this


    lolno actually i'd have to say failblog and 9gag (not technically forums but a very similar thing so it counts, stfu), especially the former since they changed the layout and a ton of muggles left cuz they were butthurt

    9gag purely because of the ghetto trash on the vote page and the constant reposts, although occasionally something genuinely clever gets to the hot or trending pages and i can enjoy them
