I'll just drop a link to what I said in the draft forum, because it probably still applies: http://www.scp-wiki.net/forum/t-1676618/scp-724-j-the-sequel-to-sad-roach#post-2490084

Credit to Zyn for first thinking up "Bad Roach" as a concept.
If this gets above +20 and you link Sad Roach, I will link Bad Roach from Sad Roach's page.
Roach brothers 4lyf.
Apparently, D-class can just wander around, poke their heads into interviews, and answer the door for pizza.
Almost all of the jokes here feel highly derivative. Both the very first and the very last jokes in this article, the object class and "BAD ROACH NO", are directly taken from Sad Roach, and don't even stand on their own as anything other than references to sad roach.
Unfortunately, that's how most of the jokes turn out. They're either standard site jokes ("seemingly harmless object offhandedly kills a dozen people" is a standout example of this) or less creative rehashes of jokes from Sad Roach. You never commit to giving this thing any actual interesting aspects, and don't even commit to rehashing things from Sad Roach ("SAD ROACH NO" had more buildup because the name was used throughout the article, for example, and the testimonials section here is so short that you wonder why it's in here except to say "see? sad roach did this too!"). Rather than putting the original in a new light, you just put it in the exact same light, but dimmer.
I love Sad Roach (still miffed about that Darkblade match), but this just comes across as the off-brand knockoff. The jokes that are references to Sad Roach come off as far too derivative, and the jokes that aren't references to Sad Roach are far too standard. It needs to put in more work to actually be its own thing before it'll be anything other than "Sad roach but worse".
Total Verdict: Downvote.
So who we got left in the motel squad?
(Here's a +1 for a great -J you son of a gun)
(You're a son of a gun, aren't ya?)
I believe I have some appropriate fuel for this project.
(ETA: And there's your +20. pony up, motherfucker)
