Ooh. But, my, thank you for posting it. I'm heartened to see
the great art of MiSTing not fully gone yet. (I have a big project I
intend to have done before the end of the year, but then, I have a lot
of projects I mean to have done before the end of the year. It's going
to be a weird one, though.)

As I say, I appreciate it. What's the GAFF?

I don't remember seeing any Rifftrax Crew MiSTings, or for
that matter Cinematic Titanic Crew MiSTings, although that may have
just been something that slipped through the formatting.

I'm impressed that it's something big enough to get a TV Tropes
entry, although I don't actually know what the standard for that is.

If I don't reply to this Joseph Nebus post, the terrorists win.

God Awful Fan Fiction. Originally a place to post reviews of horrible
fanfics, it eventually got usurped by the much livlier forums (think 4chan
with acutal standards of behavior). A few years ago, the site's owner
decided to close up shop. A couple of attempts to continue the spirit of
GAFF have taken place (the most notourious being The House of Bad Fanfiction,
which disolved in a cloud of wank). Why, God, Why is the current spiritual
sucessor.

There isn't one. "There is no such thing as notability" is the site motto.
The only real standard for putting up works pages is one of formatting and
basic content (a two sentence description with no trope examples will be a
magnent for Cut List requests).

Glad you enjoyed!
