basically if you post quotes that use the word fag at least once, talk about anal sex between men, make references to nazis, refer to women in the context of rape, allude to child porn, or any form of adolescent sexuality or violent graphic behavior, essentially just limit the quote to anything that a 14 year old boy would say to his 14 year old friends, then it'll get approved. they don't even have to be funny or clever. hope that helps.
is a site where people submit quotes from chat rooms (IRC, AIM, MSN, etc.) It is moderated, which theoretically helps keep the quality up and the spamming down, and has buttons to vote quotes up or down, thus giving a rough measure of how quality a quote is. It has spawned a number of imitators
Since chat rooms tend to be a microcosm of real life, bash.org exhibits a number of tropes. However, as there are over 20,000 quotes
on the site, we cannot exhibit them all, so please pick the ones that best exemplify the trope in question.
