2. Destination for mass-exodus from heavy-handed moderators at Fark.
As an addendum, not one user of banniNation will admit to being permanently banned from Fark.com. They all quit of their own free will. They also have a habit of attempting to skew criticism by voting negatively on opposing views on the website urbandictionary.com.
