Every forum with a user-base has its own personalities that rise to cult-status.
I don’t need to explain why Boxxy was an influential personality to /b/.
But how important is it that we investigate other personalities with their own cult-followings?
What brings me to ask this is YTMND’s Dr. L337.
He’s been widely influential on YTMND, and he may actually be a group of people and not even a real person. I personally feel that this is relevent to our interests, but at what point does a personality become worth investigating?
Obviously I’m not suggesting that we consider an interent personality a meme. But should we plan for a “web personalities” section in which Dr. L337 and others like him would fit? Or is this just something best left on YTMND and ED?
