Irrational feelings of dread and paranoia caused by being in the (virtual or physical) presence of a member of the Something Awful forums. In extreme cases, it can be classified as a phobia. Symptoms include posting illogical accusations usually containing association fallacies, comparisons of Goons to Hitler (see: Godwin), demands for preemptive banning of said group, claims that Goons ruin everything and causing moderators to lose their shit.

Goonfear is not limited to being in the presence of Goonswarm members, but any of the numerous Goon groups from the Something Awful forums.
When the Goons arrived on the forums it wasn't long before Goonfear set in.
