I feel like the fact that every article about someone that kills themselves nowadays has to include the de rigueur suicide prevention hotline note at the end is exactly the sort of thing that SA was made to ridicule.

Bummer. I was a fan way way back. I stopped by the forum a year or two ago and saw that the entire thing had turned against him, which was super weird to see. Jeff K gave me a lot of laughs, State Og was brilliant.

Isnt Something Awful the same site that had those pictures of ugly people and there were always crude (and absolutely hilarious) comments on them?

Or am I thinking of the Maddix guy

No one can doubt his influence on the internet, for better or worse. Both IMO.

The Horrors of Porn section of SA is still one of the most hilarious reads on the intarwebz. And yeah, I know Zach Parsons wrote those, but still, he provided the platform. Flash Tub was also a lot of fun back when Flash was shiny and new, and before Schmorky had gone off the deep end of disgusting pedo perversion. SA was also responsible for the greatest internet legend of autism, Chris Chan.

Clearly he had some demons if he committed suicide. Him being run off the site after the domestic abuse allegations definitely didn't do his headspace any favors.

What surprises me the most is he died before Schmorky.

Is there any proof that Shmorky is still alive? I was kind of under the impression he had offed himself like about 4 years ago. That doesn't mean it happened, just that I thought it did.

Shmorky has a long ass thread on kiwifarms if you're interested. Last thing I heard is that he trooned up and calling himself Daisy or some shit.

As far as I know, Shmorky hasn't been on the internet since making the last patreon post. All other sightings seem to be speculations based on art style, which isn't good for much since Shmorky's comics have been around forever.

Internet says November 16, 1999 was when SA.com went up (happy belated anniversary), and Shmorky's first comic went up in January 2000.

Richard is an asshole and basically rode on the talent of other people.

You can't go lazy mode popping pills and wine for 20 years riding on the success on others because life will eventually catch up with you. Being a wife beater doesn't help much either. PAK CHOOIE UNF.

Sick fucks like Shmorky will always be on the internet, just with different aliases and/or hiding in deeper, darker places. They can't help themselves.
