So here we are, faced with the last few hours of the year 2012 (although some parts of the world are in 2013 already) and the world has not ended. Bummer. What a year it was for Best Gore, though.
This time last year, Best Gore was perused by just over 500,000 people a month. By now, the number has grown to over 6 Million a month. That’s a whole lotta newbies.
A lot has happened in 2012 – it’s been by far the most turbulent year for the most controversial website on the internet and if anything, it’s only made us stronger. At least “us” who’ve been part of it since before 2012.
Best Gore started in April of 2008. It wasn’t until the end of 2011 when I finally caved in, swallowed my pride and put up a donation form on the site. Until then, the site ran with no advertisements and no support from the users. I’ve footed the bill all on my own. For years I could not bring myself to asking for donations but as hosting costs kept rising, I eventually gave in and to my most pleasant surprise, enough was collected each month to pay for the server. What was even more surprising was the fact that 90% of donations were made by people who do not have an account to comment on posts, but have been loyal members for years. Only a few people who are recognizable commenters donated.
In exchange for help with hosting costs, I started posting far more content than I used to. For 3 and a half years I used to make one post a day. I felt that because people were generous enough to donate, I should provide them with more content than they used to get so I started dedicating my whole days to researching and writing articles to post.
This lasted for 2 months. I was welcomed to 2012 by a note from PayPal that a do-gooder whined to them about me using their platform for donations on a site containing graphic content and banned my account irrevocably, freezing all donations made with it. So that’s how 2012 started off for me. I was back to paying for growing hosting costs out of my own pockets, except that this time around I did not have any income because I spoiled the users with several posts a day (which required 18 hours of work a day, leaving no time for something that could generate income to sustain my life, however frugal it had been) and going back to making just one post a day would leave everyone deprived.
One of the reasons why I kept posting frequently was because I had a plan to shut the site down. I announced it almost a year in advance – after 4 years of running the largest gore site on the internet, I wanted to move on to different things and show the ultimate finger to humans by withdrawing from society and living as a recluse where there is no backstabbing, cheating, war mongering, raping, and other fine traits found solely among humans.
After several days of getting to a very remote area on foot, I decided to pull back because that area had just experienced a major burnout and it looked very depressing there. So I spent the following weeks looking for a new spot and after I found it, I was chased out of there by the most unmanageable enemy ever – mosquitoes. I was forced to return to civilization 3 times, each time returning better equipped to survive in a mosquito infested area, but survivability there proved impossible. More info here.
I was in no rush to do it on a specific day or in a specific year as I was not trying to prove anything to anyone, I decided to put it off until next year, dedicating the remainder of this year to more searching. And then Luka Rocco Magnotta entered the scene.
Being the owner of the largest gore site on the internet, I was sent the 1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick video. Sure it was disturbing, but for us seasoned S.O.B.’s who’ve seen the real face of humanity it was nothing too special. The viewership of the video was not significantly higher than the viewership of any other video I had posted thus far and the life went on for the community without much turbulence.
But as the days went by, Best Gore community came together and showed once again how much power it wields. We identified the perpetrator and after also identifying where he was from, reported him to the authorities in Canada. Authorities did nothing and a few days later, Canadian politicians started to receive parcels with severed body parts. All of a sudden there was a huge interest in the mysterious man behind the 1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick video.
By that time, the video had been on Best Gore for several days and was viewed the same number of time as any other video posted. But after mainstream media told the sheep that Best Gore had the upsetting video on the website, the sheep went out of their way to get on our site to see it. What was previously viewed regular number of times was all of a sudden viewed hundreds of thousands of times more and despite all the warnings on the page, the sheep really could not resist and hit the play button. They watched, they got offended and then they bitched at us.
I have been receiving death threats from the day I started Best Gore. None has ever achieved a damn thing. I have never let anyone push me around and at the end of the day, they all got nowhere. Frequency at which the death threats kept coming significantly increased after the Luka Magnotta thing. The sheep kept threatening me with every imaginable thing, mainstream media were trying too and so did the police, and that’s when I realized that my plan to go recluse on society will be put off indefinitely, solely so the sheep and the sheep dogs don’t get their way with me. They’d have to drop balls first to see me dance to their tune.
And so 2012 went on. The sheep kept bitching, even infiltrating Best Gore and raising their senile bullshit upon us, but at the end of the day, got nowhere. By now, Best Gore is stronger than ever and our ranks are growing. Before stumbling across Best Gore, many people had not realized how bad the world really was and had their eyes open. They went from being obedient sheep to becoming aware individuals and that’s the driving force that pushes me forward.
Best Gore exposes reality. It exposes the harsh truth not only about crime, but also about two faced and manipulative governments and institutions we readily rely on. And as 2013 draws ever nearer, I commit to keeping it precisely as such. They bitch, whine and threaten me all the time. They continue to look for the ways to harm me and/or the site. But what we have on our side is what they can never touch – for what Best Gore represents is THE TRUTH. And truth conquers all! Have a kick ass 2013 ya’ll.
