YMMV: The Best Page In The Universe
  • Dude, Not Funny!: A frequent reaction to some of his articles, particularly the ones about Elizabeth Smart and Christopher Reeve. Maddox, of course, would point out that he wasn't trying to be funny.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • Look at the screenshot montage on his Xbox rant, written in 2002. The games shown are Metal Slug 3, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, and Radiant Silvergun, 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 Revenge of the Sith was the unimaginative name given to General Grievous, suggesting that they call all future bad guys "Evil" and "Bad". Come Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 4, there is a Darth Maul expy introduced given the name "Savage Oppress".
    • His anti-iPhone page, which features a "non-biased, side-by-side comparison of some key features of each phone". Several of the features that he brings up are part of the Nokia E70 (the phone he compares to the iPhone) but not the iPhone have become standard in later generations of the iPhone, including custom ringtones, sound and video recording, MMS, voice dialing (through Siri), and instant messaging.
  • Misaimed Fandom: A nice portion of his fanbase are the same exact people Maddox rags on.
