* DudeNotFunny: A frequent reaction to some of his articles, particularly the ones about [[http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=elizabeth_smart Elizabeth Smart]] and [[http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=creeve Christopher Reeve]].
* HilariousInHindsight: Look at the screenshot montage on his [[http://www.thebestpageintheuniverse.net/c.cgi?u=xbox_suckit Xbox rant]], written in 2002. The games shown are ''VideoGame/MetalSlug 3'', ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight'', and ''VideoGame/RadiantSilvergun'', three games Maddox ranted would never appear on Xbox. All three games eventually made it to {{Xbox}} or {{Xbox 360}}. '''Yes, even ''Radiant Silvergun''.'''
** One of his complaints about ''Film/RevengeOfTheSith'' was the unimaginative name given to General Grievous, suggesting that they call all future bad guys "Evil" and "Bad". Come ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'' Season 4, there is a Darth Maul {{expy}} introduced given the name ''"Savage Oppress"''.
* HypeBacklash: A lot of the things he expresses hate for are (or [[DeaderThanDisco were at the time]]) particularly popular, such as ''{{Film/Titanic}}'' at the time he wrote his anti-''Titanic'' article, and the iPhone (then without a lot of features and apps available nowadays).
* MisaimedFandom: A nice portion of his fanbase are the same exact people Maddox rags on.
* UnfortunateImplications: Maddox likes to rant and rave about old people (he even appeared on an episode of PennAndTellerBullshit on the subject). One wonders what age he plans to die at.
