|Joined SS||28 April 2012|
|Joined DnE||22 June 2012|
|Known for||huge lolcow, militant Muslim, couldn't into English|
ArabiaMad (more commonly referred to as Araby) and alternatively known as hahaha12345, ihateteachers, and anonymousanonymous was a Dark n Edgy lolcow, notably the only user from Saudi Arabia. He is also the only known Muslim to have joined the forums. He lives in Riyadh, the country's capital. He is one of two main lolcows. He wants everyone to be Muslim, and if you aren't Muslim, you're evil. Araby openly hates America and claims that his country, Saudi Arabia, has the power to cripple the American economy. Other than this, Araby is also know for many forms of trolling, spamming, shitposting, etc.
The fatal flaw of Araby that most contributed to his difficulty to deal with other users was his closed-mindedness: He not only refused to acknowledge logical arguments from his opponents in debates, but he continually used the same, debunked, unrelated, unnecessarily personal "evidence" in almost every debate about religion or politics i.e., every fucking debate this kid got in.
Debates & IRCEdit
A debate with Araby could've been started just like any other debate; two people want to show enough evidence to the other person to convince them that they are right, while also learning about the opposing argument's point of view and maybe even change their opinion. But with the slightest criticism, not even an insult, of Islam, or any opinion of Arabia that could even be perceived as a criticism, he would get personal. Either that, or he would run out of arguments and resort to, "America sucks, they couldn't even win the Vietnam War or defeat the Taliban," or, "Saudi Arabia can totally lock America's economy. We did it before and we can do it again." Keep in mind that both of these statements have been retorted with accurate information, yet he still persists and refuses to either acknowledge the opposing side or back up his own arguments.
Araby, being a fundamentalist Muslim, had very strict and conservative Muslim political views. He probably supported some sort of caliphate. Soon before he left, Wes also kinda sorta convinced him that capitalism is a good idea and not contradictory with his religious views. This should be applauded, as it is hard to convince Araby of anything.
School Survival eraEdit
Little remains in terms of information about Araby's actions on SS, but it is well remembered he supported public capital punishment, the boycotting of Israel and many ultra-conservative policies backed by the Saudi Arabian government.
Dark n Edgy eraEdit
For roughly half a month, it was thought that when the community abandoned SS for DnE, they also abandoned Araby. This would be proved wrong, as he inevitably joined on 22 June 2012. During this time, he made numerous almost pointless threads.
Complete list of ArabiaMad's threadsEdit
Excluding those which may have been deleted, as of 10 May 2014
- interview me - His interview thread.
- North Korea - Araby complains about North Korea, seemingly oblivious to the community's discussions on North Korea being satirical, and genuinely believing that the community supported the North Korean government.
- Fat Kid Beats Up a Bully - Araby reports on the famous video of a bully victim retaliating in an Australian high school.
- 12 Year Old Boy Accidentally Shoots Sister - Araby reports on an incident in Colorado where a 12 year old shot his 17 year old sister, supposedly accidentally.
- Luna, please un-firewall me - Araby requests for his ban from the IRC to be lifted. He is denied.
- ATTENTION SSers!!!!!!! - Araby genuinely believes he had convinced DnE that he was banned from School Survival by changing his user title to "Banned", despite the fact he posted whilst this user title was still active, making it obvious that he was not banned.
- My replies thread - Araby tries to reply to threads he can't directly reply to by using this thread whilst basement dwelled. Famously, he claims "Arab women have opportunities that American women don't have."
- Fuck SoulRiser - Araby notices that he and SwiftEscudo have been banned from SS; as he can't use a proxy due to all proxies being blocked by the Saudi Arabian government, he calls on his "fellow SSers" to "BRING DOWN HER OPPRESSION"
- 17-YEAR-OLD SEXUAL ASSAULT SURVIVOR FACES COURT FOR TWEETING THE NAMES - Araby reports on a case where a 17 year old girl is sent to court for tweeting the names of men who supposedly raped her. Araby blames alcohol for the incident.
- Gladiator ROUND 1 FINISHED, ROUND 2 COMING TOMORROW - Round 1 of Araby's gladiator tournament in which he virtually kills users he does not like. He uses his famous "yh" as a choosable answer to a poll question.
- Any VPN which I can download? - Araby tries to bypass the Saudi Arabian great firewall, only to find that the government has already blocked every VPN he can find. He could face risk of execution if he was caught successfully using a VPN.
- Never endin story - Araby displays his sick grammar skillz, innit fam.
- North Korea's Kim Jong-un gets new offficial theme song - Araby reports on the release of a North Korean K-Pop propaganda song entitled "Onward Towards The Final Victory". At the end of the first post, he points out that North Korea has no internet access and frequently tortures citizens for "not showing enough respect to da leader", oblivious to the fact that the DnE community already know this, and again believing that DnE's community genuinely supports North Korea.
- I need help - Araby believes he has made a webpage on Microsoft Word, and asks how to upload it. He fails to realise that uploading a webpage to the internet requires owning a domain name and server, things that Araby does not have access to, and likely never will. SwiftEscudo and Fish20 try to convince Araby that Lemon Party will host his webpage. He reports that Lemon Party is blocked in Saudi Arabia.
- My dad's boss ;( - Araby reveals that his father's boss is refusing to pay rent for his home in Riyadh. He temporarily leaves the city.
- I'll be taking a break from SS - Araby announces that whilst outside of Riyadh, he will not have access to the internet for 2 months.
- tinychat - Araby tries to get people to join the now long abandoned Tinychat room started by Ramm before it was abandoned following visits from people who know Ramm in person, who don't understand the grasp of the chat room. Lamefun attacks tinychat for needing proprietary software.
- fish 20 - Araby rants about a post made by Ramm minutes before the closing of School Survival and after his public attack on Fish20's homosexuality. He claims that if a Western nation has bad relations with Saudi Arabia, they would also have bad relations with Germany and Norway, as they are, according to him, allied with Saudi Arabia. He claims "By the way. The whole world implements religion. Christamas, Good friday, easter, Hanukkah, Eid, etc.
PS-you can't become allies with norway and germany, bcoz they implement religion (christamas, easter, good friday, etc)" completely misunderstanding the point of the post, seeming to believe it to be an attack against religion, which is entirely irrelevant. He also believes that the Christian holidays in Norway and Germany are political and implemented by the government, when in reality they are implemented purely for cultural and borderline religious reasons, and the majority of its observers are not actually Christian. Having never left Saudi Arabia in his whole life, Araby has likely never experienced a Christian holiday.
Why was FAGIX banned? - Araby asks why Duelix was banned.
How did you find SS forums 2.0? - Araby reveals he found DnE through trying various search phrases on Google, as at the time the forum was invitation only and there was no public link to it.

Im not, allowed to biyt up my sistur - Another outstanding display of Araby's grasp on English. He complains that after being up his sister, his parents took action. He asks DnE for help to get revenge, oblivious to the fact that not only does DnE have a negative opinion on him, but also strongly disagree with his decision to beat up his sister. Advice is not given.
