I know there is a discussion over in the forums about our banishment from the UYD site. I’d like to clarify a few things and since I can’t do it there, I will put it here.

Everyone should know: Caitlin and I have both been blocked from the forums and our accounts are gone. I’ve been a member since 2009 or something. Jonathan said they’d never do that on one episode. IS EVERYTHING OKAY?? I think you’ll see that we haven’t posted anything vulgar, cruel, or questionable there. The only thing we’ve done wrong is to create this fan site. I got an unsolicited email months ago from 55” saying, “If you want to help out Uhh Yeah Dude and create new content for the show, there’s a site for that called uhhyeahdude.com.” Since then, the site’s mods have been after us relentlessly to quit, even assisting UYD5L in targeting us. I won’t quit, because I love this blog and I don’t think UYD fans should be forced to go to a mean-spirited site for their fix. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with there being more than one UYD site. In fact, I think it’s great and should be uncontroversial.
Please, read all our forum posts or our blog. See if we’ve been inappropriate. We haven’t. This is just mean. There was no warning or discussion. I would post this in the forum, but I can’t. If anyone wants to post something there, please. Be my guest. Stick up for us! We’re just fans like you who are getting shat on for no good reason. Y’all have read our posts. You know us. We don’t deserve to be treated this way. I mean, censoring people who have been your biggest supporters? You better get right, UYD.
What about you, Lifers? What do you think about this?
I didn’t realize the site’s been down so long. I’ll pump up our posts.
You guys submit quotes and stories and photos and jokes, too.
Also, it isn’t JLR’s fault. In fact, he thought he was suing us, but got the address wrong. He also apologized for mistakenly claiming in his suits to be a reporter for uhhyeahdude.com, and plans to ameliorate this situation in the future.
Hey Dudes and Dudenettes,
We have nearly 450 posts here on uyd4 alone. (Of course, the mothersite has a kajillion, which is one reason why we’re here in the first place—to dole out that solid-gold content to you in small, easily digestable, and of course, prettified doses on the reg.) It took me almost an hour earlier to find one of C-train’s posts about her superdope Pops. All this is to say: I think it’s safe to dip back into the archives now. I’m not sure the water’s deep enough for diving yet, but a little dip should do you just fine, thanks.
(Agent, Weck, and 55” are always on lifeguard duty over at UYD.com for you serious Greg Louganises. Never forget how awesome the .com is and how much work has gone/goes into that site! We at UYD4 are obvs their biggest fans.)
[As a former diver for a super prestigious (read: bullshit) NCAA Division III Liberal Arts college, I have to say that the Greg Louganis shout out is like, the bossest thing ever. Holy shit, that time he hit his head on that 2 1/2 reverse pike? Fuck me, that was rough. -Caitlin]
