One of the most influential and rampant memes on v2 during late spring all the way through summer. It was started by then-viewer T3tsuya on the morning of March 10th, 2010, after he saw this video of a seemingly SUPERPOWER IMBUED OTTER attacking a 96 year old man and asking if he was a horrible person for laughing until he cried at it.
The unanimous decision was, no, he was not.
And this thread came to be about an hour later, becoming the most popular thread on the forums in about a day. Otters have garnered probably the most user participation of any idea on v2 to date, this fact is both awesome, hilarious, and mildly disturbing. Otters continue to captivate the hearts of all of but the most soulless of viewers and streamers alike.
