Back as a trolling tool to evade spam filter, ASCII art is the oldest and simplest from of computer text art or some would say typewriter art.

In the recent years ASCII art has become a common sight in the social media.
And if you are an avid user of YouTube, you might have already seen Bob.


Who's bob

Hi I'm Bob the annoying ASCII character who appears every now and then in the YouTube comments.
<---Meet Bob (the builder) who builds his own army of spammers.

This cancerous Bob has been proliferating uncontrollably since the integration of YouTube and Google+ took place.
Bob's rebellious intention is understandable..
with Google is forcing everyone to get a google plus account is no wonder why people get so agitated.
(First it was blogger's commenting system then now youtube...)

However, in my opinion, inconsiderate spamming of comments in any social media is just as absurd.
Google is not going to do anything.. if they want.. they could just do away with another spam filter update just like what they did to the impotent phallus ASCII spams.




Whatever it is, ASCII art can be a beautiful graphic art when put into good use.

More importantly you can apply them in any text input area ~ In-Game chat window, Blogs, Comments, Webpage, Emails.. you name it.
Also try decorating your caveman prints with ASCII art if you still own a printer that only print text :P
