A Desperate Plea From the Quiet Guy



Hello fellow maniacs... It's not very likely that any of you recognize or remember me very well as I generally don't get to post comments on here very often due to my working life. Nevertheless, I have been a dedicated reader of MMA Mania for a number of years now. Mostly so that I can read all of the insults, haterading, and trollisms in the comments section. You've kept me coming back for so long, but now I fear our relationship might be coming to an end. It seems like half of the comments lately are "this sight blows" or "this website should go suck a Hitler dick!" Others have already taken off and left the site never to come back, with a select few even taking their tampons all the way over to Bloody Loveknuckle. Am I really about to lose the bitter jaded family that I've loved for so long, and have laughed at whilst living in between their walls? I certainly hope not.

It's undeniable, however, that some of you will inevitably still leave. Knowing this I thought long hard (over a quite irregular bowel movement) about how to preserve the community. The one that many of you believe is being stolen from you. Eventually, my sad and lonely mind came to a simple conclusion. Reddit. It provides a simple forum setting for all of the discussion to take place that is not all too dissimilar from Mania's previous comments format. It doesn't even have to be about the articles themselves. It can just be random fag hashing (no not bashing... well, I guess... no). So my request is simple. If you leave the site, please just don't leave the community. I have created an MMA Mania community subreddit which you can find at this address:

http://www.reddit.com/r/mmamaniacs/

Just post links to the articles, videos, and just random threads. Now, I'm well aware that you might all just think I'm stupid for doing this, but that's ok because you'll think I'm stupid no matter what I do. It's what I love about you all. Even if it doesn't work at least I know I tried.
