Not Worth Anybody's Time
I initially didn't like Spoony's show because it is clear that he doesn't do multiple takes and very often doesn't actually script what he's going to say, resulting in a lot of college-radio like dead air and clumsiness. He suffers from the amateurishness that a lot of internet reviewers suffer from, where his lack of planning results in him restating the same things over and over again, leaving his reviews an unstructured mess.
But then I found out that, as a fan of Final Fantasy X he advocates my murder.
So now a little amateurishness seems like a pretty tame reason to dislike him by comparison. Not only do I dislike his show, I personally dislike him. Understand that I absolutely advocate free speech and would never call to have him banned, but I implore anyone with decent senses of self-respect and proportion to just stop watching him. There are a lot of places to get a good laugh on the internet, especially as concerns video games. There's no reason to give this asshole a single dime of support via advertisement.

Kind of a conundrum, isn't it? If I say I dislike Rush Limbaugh and his show because of things he says on his show, am I reviewing the man or the show? If you name your show after yourself and use it to espouse your opinions, is it even possible to review the show without reviewing the person? I'm not soapboxing, here, I genuinely don't know the answers to those questions. I think they're interesting to consider, at least.

I'm gonna have to agree with the other posters here especially Tomwithnonumbers. From reading your second paragraph it strikes me that you actually took his joke seriously which honestly is pretty damn funny more so than the actual joke itself. It is kinda sad though that some people here take some of the things he does completely at face value and immediately jump to conclusions.

My opinion is too short for a stand alone review so I'll say it here. Spoony is one of the reasons that I don't like "angry nerd" humor. I know it's all jokes but he sounds like the type of person who won't shut up about things he doesn't like. It just isn't funny to me.
