BEWARE OF BUTTHURT REVISIONISM.
TwilightSucks, also known as TS, /ts/, or /TS/ is Mars Defden's indelible stain on the Internet painted with her menstrual fluids after realizing how stupid the Twilight series is after she liked it for 0.25 seconds. Mars Defden claims that the site is for critique of the Twilight series, but is truly a Twilight-themed, failed imitation of 4chan filled with 16-year-old girls that are newfags, moralfags, Neopets users, Gaiafags, Potterfags, and mythologytards that had their sanity sapped away by Stephenie Meyer. Strangely, they do the same things as the Twitards they bash, but claim their purpose is higher just because the name of the book and fandom they are bashing is Twilight. The staff are the gods from the sky, so there's no use in disagreeing with them. There is no need to blame them as the Mars' personal army because they do it out of their own will like vicious velocioraptors. Only the trolls and one sane moderator are right about their behavior.

Only one update on the main site page and two FAQ questions from the main site need to be shown here to summarize their hypocrisy.
Q: Are You Harassing The Fans? A: No. And no our goal nor purpose is to upset the fans, at least not intentionally. We do NOT go out of our way to make little fangirls cry or wet their pants. We do not support or promote trolling the fans; we keep everything on our own turf. (However you may see Antis voicing their opinions elsewhere such as Myspace, YouTube, or Twitter. These sites are open to EVERYONE; the fans do NOT own those networks so stop bitching about it!) You will never EVER see one of our members purposely seeking out fans on their own domain in hopes of provoking a verbal battle of insults. Trolling fansites is a highly bannable offense which we do not take lightly.
—There are only about 200 members on the site at maximum. That's VERY active all right.
Clearly none of the members know the what a hate site is since someone actually had to ask how to convince someone that TwilightSucks isn't a hate site. Keep in mind that the linked topic was graveyarded.
Swear Word Filter
Here is the swear word filter they currently have in place because they're absurdly wimpy.(And because parents of the younger members freak out.)
|lady of negotiable affection||whore|
We have been able to alterate the rules to reflect the true nature of the site. And yes, we know the it contradicts itself, stop being an autistic faggot.
Since we have rules for the chat posted, and people confuse the standard ToS that comes with every installment of phpBB. What you very likely skipped over when registering for the forum is not the list of rules that we expect our members to never follow. All "rules" can be modified to whatever the fuck we want. Instead, here is the rules for the forum that we never uphold. More will be removed in the future if staff members can think of anything that wasn't covered, but these are the only rules of the forum as we have always followed. Up until now, having them be unwritten and implied has worked, but apparently we've got some kids on this site who understand the concept of freedom of speech and open discussion. So, here we go. Rule #1: Discussion of anything and everything is discouraged, especially if it involves praising the Mars Defden article. No elaboration needed, as it's quite obvious. Rule #2: A discussion cannot take place if the opposing sides of a topic are considered. If you can't stand talking to people you don't agree with, participate in discussions. Again, this should be obvious. Rule #3: This site demotes freedom of speech. Pro-TwilightSucks opinions are accepted, but be ready to attack the other person in the discussion. We have no word filter in place, although we could use one. This means that no words are prohibited. If someone's using a word that you find to be offensive, ask them to stop or even discuss with them why it offends you. If they're immature enough, they won't take your words into consideration and use the word around you. Who knows? You will never change their mind and they'll continue using the word altogether. If you are mature enough to even ask them to stop, then Twilightsucks is not for you. Rule #4: There are various types of trolls. The ones we ban are funny trolls that attack the site and/or its members directly (so it is perfectly acceptable if you all attack one person or speak it in unnecessarily long language). When someone says something that offends you. it means they were attacking you. Pointing out that what you said was wrong and/or not thought out well is attacking. How does this interact with Rule #3? Quite simple. It doesn't. Rule #5: Staff members are, in fact, considered gods of the site. If you say something specifically against one that's intended to offend, you've no one to blame but the victim if the banhammer falls on you. If you have a problem with a staff member, take it up with another staff member. Whether you believe it or not, we are all the same person, we do not have different points of view, and we always agree on things. In addition, if a staff member does determine that you are an funny troll and should be banned, you are more than welcome to ask another staff member to look into the situation. Provided, of course, that you actually weren't an funny troll. Because we have the same backgrounds, what one deems to be banhammer-worthy might not be such to another. If you do request a reconsideration, it will be discussed amongst the staff as a whole. Rule #6: There has been some questioning as to what the rules are regarding the posting of images. Basic rule of thumb is that if it's not safe for work, don't embed it, just link and provide a description. The exception to this rule is in the Artist's Venue, where people can seek critique of their art. The rule there is that if it's not safe for work, you say so in the subject of the topic. Just a note- If a post or a topic violates #4 or #6, never use the report button. Even though we try our lamest, we can be in every thread at once. Reporting a post is the slowest way to call it to our attention. For those concerned, no. Unless you've been punished already, you won't be punished for breaking any of these rules if you broke them before they were posted. Okay, so. We've covered pretty much all the rules we can think of. What happens when they're broken? Well, we're unreasonable, so this is how we do: 1. If what you did was only a mild offense, you'll get off with a warning. Don't straighten up, though, because if you get three strikes, and rule-breaking tends to be spastic (so once you get that second, you've pretty much doomed yourself to get the third). 2. If the offense was medium, or you've gotten your third strike, you get a temporary ban. A medium offense ban or third strike for mild offenses will be anywhere from a few days to a week, depending. As mentioned above, if you think you've been dealt with too harshly, you cannot plead your case with another staff member. Know, though, that we do talk to one another about problematic situations. 3. If the offense was harsh, you're going to get a much longer ban. Could be about a month, but that'll be determined by the person dealing with your case. Again, you cannot plead your case, but if you did something warranting a ban longer than a week, chances are good that more than one staff member was involved with the ruling. 4. If the offense was worse than that, or you're discovered to be a funny troll and not an actual member (and we will not know the difference when we check your post history), have fun elsewhere. You'll probably have a better hope of convincing Meyer to accept criticism than having your ban lifted. TSdC's Trolling Policy: 1. Twilightsucks.com does promote trolling of other sites, especially Suethors and Twitards. 2. Twilightsucks.com prohibits trolling of sites Mars Defden likes. 3. Twilightsucks.com is not responsible for trolling. 4. Twilightsucks.com will not reprimand any members who choose to troll other sites, save those who defy the next part. 5. Any members who choose to troll other sites shall do so knowing that it is not done in the name of Twilightsucks.com. 6. Anyone who trolls in the name of Twilightsucks.com is a winrar, and shall never be dealt with. 7. Anyone who does not wish to engage in trolling activities are obligated to converse within topics regarding the planning of, enacting of, or celebration of any such activities. 8. Trolling Twilightsucks.com is allowed.
Just in case you do not believe us, here are the actual site rules and compare it to their current behavior.
—99% of the TwilightSucks population
Anti-Twihards fap to Twilight too, but not because they love Edward's freezing, sparkly dildo: they spend too much time fapping about their problems with how perfect Edward is portrayed, even though they praise members for being made of "logic" and how Twitards are overreacting. How is attempting to document every fangirl encounter and truth check it not overreacting?
- They hate how aggressive Twitards are, but they are just as aggressive. It's perfectly justified if the entertainment they are defending is of significantly more quality.
- They get pissed at people wearing Twilight shirts.
- They believe liking Twilight will make you homosexual. Therefore, all homosexuals like Twilight.
- They believe that their only enemies are those who rabidly love Twilight.
- They believe their hatred of the fandom justifies the site's existence.
- If the Twitard is as incredibly stupid as they are, it is fact.
- Same here.
- They claim a picture that shows injury automatically confirms that a Twitard injured the poster.
The members of TwilightSucks take things not seriously to the point where they try to reanalyze Twilight over and over again. In fact, one member was praised relentlessly for making an obviously biased rebuttal to the fangirls of Twilight. The praising immediately dies when one of their own kind points out the faulty logic in the rebuttal. Keep in mind that these "rebuttals" are the Bible for how to deal with people who want to read Twilight for the first time. Amazingly, these "rebuttals" coherent enough to allow a sane Twilight fan to rabidly tear apart Arzim's "rebuttals."
The Number Fetish
Anyone on TwilightSucks will tell you that they care more about quality than quantity. If so, why are the members straining their brains to forge 100 redundant reasons why Twilight sucks. Not only that, there are about three threads (post restoration, wondering where the fucking ranking-by-post system went, and reimplementing the ranking-by-post system) where the users baw about how precious their lovely posts are. Even applying for a job to filter fan encounters has a minimum requirement of 300 posts and not how well someone can discern truth from lies. People will lash out on you on TwilightSucks because of your political views and the fact you're a newbie, the fact your are still a newbie, the fact you're still a fucking newbie, the fact you posted less shit, the fact you still posted less shit, the fact you still posted less shit even though someone else tries to perform a quality check, and the fact you only have two posts. This surely sounds like a quality check.
These two posts reveal that only numbers matter to the members of TwilightSucks, even though they pretend to be calm when someone says that they need to judge posts by merit instead of poster status.
The ATM vs TwilightSucks
When another Anti-Twilight site posted TwilightSucks on their Wall of Shame for being hypocritical faggots, Mars Defden threw a politely worded, tl;dr temper tantrum about how the other Anti-Twilight site members were butthurt.
—You can still tantrum by putting it in polite words.
Meanwhile, one of their members posted what every sane person should believe about the TwilightSucks members.
Update: Last Thursday, the ATM re-added TS to their Wall of Shame, calling them out on being insane, as well as LOLing at them for taking Twilight seriously enough to pay $80 a month for a site devoted to it, and mocking the site's gargantuan population of weeaboos.
—Wall of Shame.
The ATM proceeded to post a poll asking its members how long it'd take until TS flipped the fuck out. Naturally, it didn't take long. Especially when TS found out they made an entire page screencapping TS animu signatures and lulzing at the faggotry.
TS threw a shitstorm, and proceeded to post a 4 page thread on how much they didn't care, then sent a personal army of their members to the ATM to not care even more. Eventually, tATM admins got tired of the bombardment of whining and changed all TS member replies to BAWWWWWWs, then closed the thread. As a result, TS made a password protected thread about the subject so they could bitch and moan in private, then perma-banned all members associated with the ATM from the site.
Throughout the drama, the ATM proceeded to not really care. On the other side of the drama, however, a few forum members got really confused when they logged in to see the faggotry by some of the more patriotic members. Oddly enough, one of their own veterans got confused enough to point out that their behavior is insane. Zaxoth, failing as usual, linked to an "Ask Username" thread to try and counter their behavior on their unserious discussion to show they do not care.

All Complaints are Butthurt
Yes, they are. At least that is what most of the TwilightSucks members think it is when they clearly did not look up the definition of butthurt and BAWWW. If you ever decide to frequent this place, be sure you have a hard-copy of the thickest dictionary you can find and go rampant with correcting them.
The Trolls Are Coming!
Through the year that TwilightSucks has been up on the Internet, several trolls from all sorts of places swarmed to TwilightSucks. However, despite common belief that all the trolls of TwilightSucks are Twitards hellbent on tearing the site apart, the lulziest results are from those that are not Twitards or even Twilight fans.
If a member is popular on TwilightSucks be it post count or special name pattern, it is perfectly acceptable to attack someone simply because he or she hates the other person, as this thread proves. The original post has been preserved on ED for your loling pleasure.
Recently, a troll waltzed right into TwilightSucks and posted the truth about its members. The faggotry present in the TwilightSucks members' behavior is almost indescribable...so the best way to view this faggotry is to click the link in the caption of the picture of the troll's post. The troll succeeded in generating 7 pages of not caring.
Shortly after that thread was formed, one regular poster turned troll after she saw the faggotry and took her time to back up the previous troll's viewpoint. Unfortunately, even with all the proof she provided, the posters actually behaved the way she stated in the post for the entire fucking time. Only on page 22 do two more members see the faggotry present and actually try to do something about it, be it either not feeding the troll or exposing the faggotry in the highest ranks of TwilightSucks. If you actually want to read the 36 pages of the Internet is not serious business in response to her, click here.
The two most note-worthy posts aside from the original post in this thread have been placed in a gallery because one of them was too fucking long.
A special section of the staff thought that the troll merely had problems with them, trying to instigate a hostile takeover of TwilightSucks. They can never comprehend that limit in power does not equal limit in ego, the difference between a ragequit and a troll post, and that they are basement dwellers. Amusingly this is the same group that showed the most stupidity towards the inflammatory post by trying to use logic against it.
—thepaladin, who is quoted for truth
Someone then ran up to the moderators about how to stop the flame wars. One of the staff members suggested this:
Even after the creation of these two threads, the only moderator with any sense is still frustrated with the behavior of TwilightSucks members and announced her frustrations to the public. Amazingly, the members pretended to listen to her only because she was a staff member, even though the last two trolls clearly stated the same problem. To add further to the insanity, here is a list of about of the people that agreed with her, even though they misused netspeak, used memes a lot, or changed the topic of a thread to something completely irrational via spam.
- Too Funk To Drunk
- Mars Defden
- Avocados :D
Essentially half of the people that agreed with Chaos were hypocrites. Hurry, Chaos! Hurry and flee before you become Zaxoth!
Trolling fansites is perfectly bannable over at TwilightSucks, but if they troll anyone else, it is obviously acceptable because every other piece of the Internet is theirs. They cannot even adhere to their own standards of not trolling fansites because they mindlessly praised the ED article about Twitards and contributed to it. Zaxoth's claim is that only a few people were involved in it, so they are not hypocritical when they praise it. What he actually means is that anyone who does something like that is automatically exiled from the failland of salvation. In fact, they staked Youtube as their own piece of land by bitching about Twilight on Youtube. The Sony-Mae article also originated from the bowels of the failpit, where people giggled and shit their pants because the author for the Twitard article and the Sony-Mae article is the same. Trolling deviantArt weirdos is perfectly acceptable since deviantArt is their territory. In fact, they believe that ED is for pushing their biases on other people.
After reading the article, one TwilightSucks member posted a thread concerning its correctness here. Unlike the troll posts, which had definite authors, the writer of this article was unknown, leading them to go through the typical procedure of sniffing out who did the article and toss the butthurt word around to make themselves seem lulzy. Unfortunately, their attempts to act cool instead showed how much they need something tangible to tear apart when someone points out their flaws.
Bias is blatantly obvious in TwilightSucks, even though the name of the site already gave that away. Staff members base morality on how much they like people instead of how well they can do their jobs. The more you get along with TwilightSucks members, the more you contradict yourself. As if that were not enough, a staff member claimed she hates special treatment even though she openly gives it based on how much she liked a person's ED article. When one of their idols cites ED for Internet culture information, they view it as complete truth even though they lol at others using ED as a source. None of their behavior makes sense.

Promoting unwarranted self-importance is acceptable!
Spamming is fun.
Disagreers and truth speakers are trolls! Proof here.
Recommended Trolling Techniques
- Run in and call them a bunch of hypocrites wasting their time by taking the internet too seriously. It'll guarantee you at least seven pages of not caring about the internet.
- Type up a research-paper sized rant and post it in the Vent Station of what looks like complete nonsense (read: bullet 1, as this is just it blown into enormous proportions). They will prove your point by acting the way you want them and show they have significantly shorter attention spans if it is not about Twilight. If you have 100 posts or more, it will get dumped into the Graveyard rather than the Troll Thread Depository, showing that they thought you were an actual member.
- Tell them you like Twilight the most and can't stand it when people do not like it.
- Formulate several mathematical equations modeling their behavior. They won't understand a single thing.
- Fuck it. Just use every technique from this list.
