* HarsherInHindsight: Ghost's nickname for pedophiles ("Creator/WoodyAllen butt loving paedophiles") is quite a bit less funny after [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/events/dylan-farrows-new-york-times-open-letter Dylan Farrow claimed that Woody Allen molested her]] as a young girl. Even though no evidence has been found (which, alongside her behavior about the incident, has caused most people to believe it's a FalseRapeAccusation) it's still pretty cringeworthy.

* FountainOfMemes: The show is endlessly quotable, with "hambone" and "melting pot of friendship" being some of the most popular memes spawned from it. [[{{Twitter}} #EngineerIsTheTalent]] became a minor meme in late 2011 as well.

** Some people consider Elfoxoloco emailing BlogTalkRadio trying to take Ghost off the air and taking down Ghost's gumroad page as him going too far.


Added DiffLines:

** Common practice since Mid-February. Ghost has stretched out the main part of the show with Cryptocurrency markets and has all but removed Radio Graffiti.


Added DiffLines:

** [=Raidensnake.=] A frequent serious caller from the UK, he was mostly ignored by trolls in favor of trolling G or Teutonic Plague. However since December 2016 he has been a frequent target, with the trolls trying to prove he's a furry/anime fan and a "Fake Brit".


Added DiffLines:

*** And now, Trump Vodka Second Harvest.


Added DiffLines:

** Ghost now has a friend he calls his "pet Mexican", which he wanted so he could get someone to clean his house.

** On April of 25th, 2017, his wife got involved in a car accident and Ghost had to cancel the 496th episode. In response of the news, many serious callers and trolls sent well wishes to the host himself.

** When Ghost gets extremely angry, his voice will sometimes sound demonic. The best examples of this were his rages over Beyonce, his reaction to the "Granddaughter" splice which sent him into tears afterward, and when someone played the "Karaszburgers" fake ad. More recently, a great example of this was at the end of the August 12, 2016 show after the "Double Dipping incident", with him practically screaming his face off wanting to see a Homeland Security agents' face.
*** Going further, Ghost's voice straight up turned into a guttural scream of "I CANT BELIEEEEVE YOU PEOPLE!" when G's Anime and Tub Guy knock off facades were revealed on October 7, 2016.

** Ghost's reactions to the Vietnam trolling. He admitted in 2009 he's a veteran (though he seems to deny it now) and some of the reactions are visceral and real. May 30th had him temporarily rage quit after a Twitter name, and June 1st had what sounded like a PTSD flashback.
** The incident that caused Ghost to (temporarily) cancel the show. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Double-dipping]] aside, it's [[AdultFear extremely unnerving]] that Ghost was threatened to take down the show by someone in real life, especially so when the cops revealed that he was [[spoiler:a Homeland Security agent, and couldn't do anything about it because they were legally forbidden from impeding his investigation]].
*** The veracity of said incident is often called into question by viewers though, with many speculating that Ghost simply made it up to have another excuse so he could rant about his hatred of the government.
** On January 12, 2017, after being trolled heavily, Ghost began talking in a low, almost serial-killer tone, stating he's not putting up with any more trolling. Then, after the next two calls troll him again, he begins babbling like a maniac in random gibberish.
** The "Woodchipper" segment, which involves Ghost himself [[WouldHurtAChild throwing children into the]] [[CruelAndUnusualDeath Woodchipper ]] while using [[Music/SmellsLikeChildren "The Hands of Small Children"]] by Music/MarilynManson. Despite the trolls [[PlayedForLaughs play this for laughs]], but the [[ParanoiaFuel segment itself is pretty unnerving.]]

** At one point near the end of March 2017, Ghost attempted to stop drinking at the behest of his wife. Needless to say, beer jokes have been flooding in. While his reaction was funny at first, it eventually started to become rather disquieting - You can hear genuine cracks in his armor as he keeps flipflopping between wanting and not wanting a drink and wanting to stay on the wagon. It comes to a bit of a head near the end of the 29th March 2017 show, where the realization of his alcoholism and how major it is finally sets in. If a listener has ever dealt with any sort of substance dependency (be it themselves or others), this probably strikes some pretty major nerves.

** He also keeps taking calls from names that are well known for trolling him, and lets some remixes play a lot longer than it should be taking him to realize they are trolling him.

*** In one recent show he even answered [[RuleOfThree three consecutive calls]] from area code 352, known to most trolls as the primary number for Scarlet Moon's audio splice queues.

-->Ghost: Oh man, I'm telling ya, you guys are really gonna- y-y-you're gonna drive me to drink, man. You're gonna drive me to dri-[[MoodWhiplash GIMMETHEMIC - *CANS.WAV*]] - ...Look, I got the free will, and I've got the will to do this right now, and-and not drink. But I'm not...you know. I don't know how much longer I can do this, man. I'm gonna be honest with you. I don't know how much longer I can stay sober. This is very, very tough...I-I-I don't want any sympathy, I'm not trying to get people to feel sorry for me, I never thought I had this much of a problem. I-I never realised that, until I tried to stop, and I'm ashamed of myself. I'm gonna be honest with you, I'm ashamed of myself.

** The meat manager caller during the March 3 broadcast, [[MotorMouth who rambled on]] [[OverlyLongGag for a solid seven minutes]] [[{{Filler}} about his enthusiasm for meat, its place in the markets, and the show in general]]. What's worse is that he called in during an otherwise fascinating discussion about the problems of the modern video game industry. Despite having only called in once (as of writing), the trolls have considered him ''worse'' than the likes of Goofy_Bone or Raiden Snake.
