I know that 'tall has been said and done, but looking back on it...
Should the Pasta known by millions as Jeff The Killer actually been deleted. Now don't get me wrong, it was AWFUL. It was full of awful phrasing, awkward statements, and cheap scares basically saying "BOO! THIS IS SCARY" But at the same time... It was considered scary at a time. But now that we've GROWN and have, in turn, grown higher expectations, it just isn't effective.
But I don't know.. Sure, It was bad! But it was HISTORY! It's like why we don't burn ancient vases and plates we find. Or crude spears made by our ancestors.
SURE, there is no point for them to exist today, and we have gotten much better at making them.. But they were a fundemental part of HOW we grew, and deserve not to just be thrown out.
GUYS GUYS GUYS! Some of you are missing the point here.
I AM NOT SAYING JEFF WAS GOOD
I AM NOT SAYING IT WOULD PASS OFF TODAY
I'm not saying that JEFF pioneered Creepypasta, but it did have a significance. For a LOT of people, when they think of the word Creepypasta, they think of stories like SlenderMan, and Jeff.
And for Jeff to just be GONE now almost seems like burning a crude spear.
YES, this PARTICUALR SPEAR has been here for way too long, is really awful at being a spear, and you could make the argyment that it never really had a place in the world.
But this particular spear is one of the spears that we used to learn how to make spears better, and more effective.
This particular spear sucked, yah, big time. But it was still a peice of HISTORY, a landmark on how we learned how to do this whole creepypasta thing.
THAT is what I'm saying here.
