FYAD (Fuck You And Die) is a sub-forum of the Something Awful forums, visible only to registered members. It is notable for being the most polarising forum on Something Awful, with responses ranging from intense dislike to fawning admiration (both of which FYAD ‘regulars’ play on in the forum’s content). While FYAD posters account for the former reaction as a consequence of not ‘getting’ FYAD, definitions are paradoxically seen as pointless. In very broad terms though, the forum seeks to mock essentially every populist trend on the internet, particularly forum users. This is achieved by assimilating their speech and methods and pushing them to often ridiculous extremes.
As well as the general derogatory attitude towards FYAD by many Something Awful forum members (particularly those found in the General Bullshit sub-forum), FYAD is more concisely derided as the place for ‘flame wars and gross pictures’. In literal terms this is correct but the pejorative nature of this understanding arises from a false concept of their usage.

Indeed, if there can be a proper understanding of FYAD it must revolve around their parasitic relationship with the internet. FYAD is a response to internet culture (especially found in forums) and the regulars’ distaste for it. Chat room abbreviations, emoticons, flame wars and threads intentionally revolving around trivial matters proliferate in FYAD because of their popularity on the internet. In order to emphasise their stupidity, the use of these facets is pushed to ridiculous extremes such as posts composed of just one emoticon.

Fuck You And Die. A subsection of the forums at somethingawful.com, it is for flame wars and disgusting pictures, but usually ends up being a wellspring of humor and catch-phrases.
I was posting in fyad today and got myself banned.

FYAD is the cool place to hang out. You can find most of the cool people there. In FYAD you can just chill and do whatever and totally relax. "Take it easy" is the FYAD motto, for example, that's how laid back it is there. Show up if you want to have a good time. Another good reason to show up is if you want to hang out with friends.
