A Sob Story is a tactic used by emotionally needy attention whores to pry undeserved sympathy out of the general public. It can be many things from how you were raped, your latest failed suicide attempt, how horrible your life is, how you hurt yourself, how your friend died and how you almost died to name just a few. With the stupidity-nurturing effects of online teen-ruled forums/communities; use of the tactic has skyrocketed just as fast as the amount of jackasses self-diagnosing themselves with Asperger's syndrome.
The truth of the matter is that almost all cases of sob stories are blatant lies. This is because people with real deaths and tragedy usually have the maturity to move on with their lives instead of being a blubbering cunt on the internets crying for attention. Another reason is despite the "tragic events", the person complaining always seems to have a perfect alibi for covering up any evidence it really happened such as "they never found the body" or "the rapist is still out there/dead" or any other TOTALLY CONVENIENT cover.
Oh and of course if you call them a liar, you are a horrible insensitive cock... I mean, like, how DARE you question it!
Why do they do it?
- Being able to cry on someones shoulder; so they can feel like someone cares.
- Pageviews on their DeviantART profile
- To try to get unbanned from neopets
- Begging for money or E-money in such games as Gaia & Second Life
- To win America's Next Top Model

Examples from Art Hugbox Central
It should be no surprise that the wapanese-sonic-furry-fan girl "artist" social networking site known as DeviantART is a breeding ground for this type of behavior.
The former Co-creater of DevianTART becomes a victim of the site he tried to build by having his ass fired. After being fired he decides to milk the tartlet collective of as many hugs and emoticons as he can by posting an image of an anguished kid with quotes about "why daddy?":

Argentina is rape central
Apparently this furry from Argentina has been raped again and again by the same guy, but would sooner post the details on her deviantart journal rather than contacting the authorities. Other activities include using excessive emoticons when threatening to kill herself, but of course she doesn't do it for the attention:
Yeah, keep telling yourself that. Oh, and she has witnessed at least 100 murders, so show some sympathy plz!

Sonic Fan girls Try Suicide
In one of the worst examples of what is wrong with the internet is the events that unfolded in the early days of 2007: When a gigantic group of 13 year old furry sonic fangirls decide to make a fake suicide pact for attention and pageviews. Imagine how much these girls will lie and manipulate their way through life when they get older? Truly humanity is destined for failure.
