I think it's frustration. People here were such fans of Howard's, now they seem him as a hypocritical, sleazy pump and dump asshole, but he gets the last laugh because he's worth $500,000,000 or so. The people on here might work hard but still struggle to make ends meet, then they see gold diggers attaching themselves to Howard and his ilk and living a life of luxury. All the racist posts are a reaction to the political correctness in the US, contrasted by the animalistic behavior of the negroid population of the US. It seems to be a lot of middle aged white men venting.
the posters here on the stern side for the most part are mature thoughtful caring people who just like to have fun. we're a close knit group who vent our anger with comedy and has provided more laughter than the stern show by 100x's in the last 4 years.
