After recent events, Noah "The Spoony One" Antwiler and Channel Awesome have decided to part ways. Noah has made it clear that he wishes to pursue a course that is different from our own. We feel that with these different aims, it is better for Noah to be free to pursue his own goals unhindered by us.
Noah has been an immense talent on the site and we thank him for his years of hard service, both in numerous episodes of The Spoony Experiment and in the Channel Awesome Anniversary films.
We sincerely wish him the best in all future endeavors, and hope he continues to put out great quality work.

For those of you don't know That Guy With the Glasses is the critic site featuring the Nostalgia Critic and Linkara, the latter a well know comic book reviewer in this site at least. Spoony used to be one of their greatest contributors but since last year he suffered some mental breakdown after his rather messy break up with his girlfriend. From what I can understand from Giantbomb, he made a sexist joke to fellow reviewer JesuOtaku on twitter and know his entire video section on TGWTG is locked. He is attacking anyone on Twitter that threatens to even talk with him right now. I am bringing this up because he used to be one of my favorite reviewers on the site and its really sad to see this happen.
I have been better informed of actually transpired. A month ago Spoony made a insensitive joke to JesuOtaku about raping her if her relationship with Nash didn't work out. He apologized and she accepted everything seemed fine. Obscurus Lupa find out about brought it up again and attacked Spoony publicly with several reviewers and fans backing her. TGWTG suspended Noah for a month (refusing to carry any of his new content for the duration), and claimed their decision to suspend him was unrelated to the ongoing twitter war Spoony was waging against anyone and everyone (including Phelous, Lupa and other TGWTG employees). Spoony continued to take the attack, claiming (among other common themes) that he was just joking about his creepy sexual advances on multiple occasions. He argued that women like Lupa were being unfair to him and that he "never asked" for people to give him their advice to problems which he had publicly been whining about on Twitter for months.
Although TGWTG tactfully omits any mention of Noah's most recent behavior and probable serious depression, TGWTG parted ways with The Spoony Experiment on June 21st, 2012. TSE forums were immediately closed and the That Guy With The Glasses main site has been edited to remove many references to and forum sections on TheSpoonyOne.
I have been following Spoony since 2011 and I while do enjoy his stuff (mostly his Ultima Retrospective and movie reviews) I was never a big fan because of his abrasive and nitpicky nature, really narrow taste, tendency to rip apart anything he reviews and call it the worst X ever every video. I've heard many times from many people he is genuinely nice person but if you seen the way he talks on Twitter, insulting people for liking something he doesn't and his Avatar, Tron Legacy and Transformers reviews, he comes off as really smug insensitive douche.
