The 2020 Fundie of the Year awards #announcement

It’s that time of year again: The 2020 FOTY awards. A special recognition for the most heinous, ridiculous, silly, and memorable quotes and sources of quotes for this year.

Anyone with a doomscrolling addiction has had no shortage of content to feed it, so let’s revisit the contributions of the quacks, racists, and conspiracy theorists that made it truly interesting.

If you want to find antifa quotes in January, for example, you’d run an antifa search, then click Date…, then set “posts before” to January 31st and “posts after” to January 1st. The result would be https://fstdt.com/?before_date=2020-01-31&after_date=2020-01-01&q=antifa

For the first step, we’re going to do a nomination round. To nominate a fundie for an award, leave a comment on this post saying who you want to nominate, and for what award, along with some justification (quote links, in particular). For example, if I wanted to nominate Visual Basic for Applications for the Best Programming Language award, I would write this:

@pyro

[b]Best programming language: Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications[/b]

For introducing tons of people to the world of authoring their own malware, and being perfect enough that no new features need to be added.

You can second someone else’s recommendation by starring it.

Categories that don’t receive much attention will be culled, since they’re not much fun. I’d like to leave most of the categories up to the community, but we’re probably doing these ones:
