[Slashdot] - Something Awful Founder Richard 'Lowtax' Kyanka Dies At 45


Recommended Posts

Longtime Something Awful forum administrator Fragmaster posted that site founder Richard "Lowtax" Kyanka has died. From a report: "I guess I should preface this by saying this isn't a joke especially since I'm posting for like the first time in 10 years or something, but I got the bad news today directly from Rich's family," wrote Fragmaster. "Lowtax has passed away." "I didn't ask for details," Fragmaster continued. "I don't know details. I don't know what the current opinion of Rich here is. Not here to answer questions, I'm sharing the news. I really hate to share this news. But there you go." Considering all the shit that Something Awful has gotten up to over the years, some have wondered if this were a hoax. "Is this for real?" wondered one forum member. Some expressed shock at the news, while others offered their condolences to his children. Kyanka's second wife, who posts on SA under the name LadyAmbien, has confirmed her husband's death, in a very angry post about his treatment of her and their children.
