There's probably no ZZTer who was more divisive than the author of Stupid RPG, Knightt. When it comes to petty community drama, he made sure to weigh on in it. He ran his own alternative ZZTer IRC channel called #loungeact, welcomed newbies, and gained a following from his supportive nature. In the early 2000s, "Knightt-lackey" was both a genuine insult, but also a way for the less popular ZZTers to group up and stake a claim in a community turning hostile towards them.
Knightt is unique in that he is quite possibly the only person to ask for his games to be removed from the ZZT archive after one staff disagreement too many, which made his Stupid RPG series somewhat rare for a few years if you didn't know where to look for it. The games were still available on his personal site as well as the joint ZZT/Megazeux archive Zeuxworld. The games, surely have something to them. Everybody knew about Stupid RPG, and whether you were a #loungeact regular or glad to see him leave the ZZT community for the 3rd time in a year, there's no doubt if you were there in the 2000s you knew the name well.
Nearly everything Knightt actually released was a part of this series, with countless remakes, demos, special editions, and 24 Hours of ZZT entries under the SRPG moniker. Honestly, that alone might be the reason everybody knew about Stupid RPG, it was impossible to avoid.

Before I start actually going into the world itself, let me just drop the content warning here. See, this is a comedy ZZT game of late 90s vintage. Humor at the time meant... one of the main characters is named F*gnuts. Awesome.
