* CreatorBreakdown: In 2015, David Wong agreed to participate in a {{Website}}/Reddit "Ask Me Anything" Q&A thread. The thread was soon filled with people asking questions like "What was the catalyst that began Cracked's transformation from witty satirical site to a second-rate version of ''Salon''?" Wong threw what could only be described as a temper tantrum, and using Facebook and Twitter he urged his fans to come to the Reddit thread and intercede on his behalf. However, Reddit has strict rules against brigading (inciting a group of people to downvote something you disapprove of), and as a result Wong managed to get his Reddit account banned.

* CowboyBebopAtHisComputer: One of the egregious is [[http://www.cracked.com/article_20158_the-6-most-baffling-video-game-spinoffs_p2.html this article's #1 spot]]. It lists three Sonic games in reverse chronology, calls ''VideoGame/SonicUnleashed'' a spinoff when it's a mainline game, and claims Shadow from ''VideoGame/ShadowTheHedgehog'' is Sonic with a dark redesign. Not accusing Shadow of being a palette swap, but claiming that Shadow is ''literally'' Sonic, whom Sega tried to reinvent as a gun-wielding badass.
