Unfunnybusiness is a Fandom Wank spin-off community for topics that are more rage-inducing than funny, or that merit more serious discussion. Posts do not have to relate to fandom. It was formed in August 2007[1] after ongoing complaints that various discussions about misogyny and racism being reported on Fandom Wank were not actually wanks[2], nor were they funny.

The assertion that some topics simply aren't funny represents a fairly major shift in opinion on the part of the fandom_wank crowd, which occurred somewhere around 2005.
