** One of the above-mentioned uninformed grammar Nazis who thought "homage" wasn't a real word went on to tell Maddox that he "didn't think you'd want some [[RougeAnglesOfSatin collage]]-educated guy bitchin at you."" Another one tried to claim that there were no spelling or grammatical errors for Maddox to rip him apart for... but he misspelled "grammar", and immediately followed up this claim with a sentence using the wrong form of the word "you".

* BrickJoke: Most of the counters at the bottom of pages are this, usually referencing a one-off joke early in the article. [[http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=faq The site's FAQ]], for instance, contains the question, "What does that number at the bottom of each page mean?" He explains that each page has its own page-view counter, with a unique phrase for each one. The FAQ's own counter, of course, says that "''X'' people still don't understand how the counters work on my site."

** By far the longest instance of this involved a 2004 article titled [[http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=regressive "Looking for a safe stance on abortion? Me neither"]], where the counter at the bottom read that "''x'' people will vote for me not realizing that I can't run for president until 2016." [[http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=regressive#update Come November 2016, a full twelve years later]], and Maddox updated the article to announce that he would actually be running for President.

* FanDumb: Invoked and mocked. He calls Apple customers and Macintosh customers simple-minded idiots; they send him hate mail, which he turns into more material. To top it all off, Maddox is himself an OS-X user.

* and ''TheBiggestProblemInTheUniverse''; a weekly podcast in which Maddox, along with Dick Masterson of DrPhil and menarebetterthanwomen.com fame (infamy?), aims to create a comprehensive list of all the problems in the Universe, in hopes of eventually finding the biggest one. Hilarity ensues.

* PoliceBrutality: Discussed in "[[http://thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=message_to_cops A message to cops.]]", where he expresses his grievances with some of the more petty or needless things police officers do.
--> Most cops I see abuse their power every day by parking illegally, talking on their cellphones while driving, drifting in and out of lanes without turn signals, flashing their lights to get out of intersections and power tripping like crazy. If you're a cop who's reading this, rather than being butt-hurt by people's perceptions of you, do something to change it. Write a fellow officer a ticket. Stick your neck out for us, rather than your colleague for a change. Do the right thing. We notice.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: His first couple of years of articles are not nearly as well remembered as some of his others due to being written very much in the style of a generic angry college kid as opposed to his later, more exaggeratedly manly and meticulous persona.

Most of his early articles are satirical or otherwise "don't take this seriously" in nature, unlike the SincerityMode present in many articles starting in the 2010's.
