About The Institute

Pictured: The DSP Research Institute - Tallinn, Estonia 2019.

The Institute has been established for researching, analyzing, and archiving the strange and sometimes unbelievable behavior of online personality “Darksydephil”.

While many know exactly who he is, there is simply too much to discuss about this rabbit-hole in a small introduction if you aren't familiar. Have a look around using the navigation bar at the top of the screen. Hopefully you enjoy the tools and information here as well.

Thank you!

Ever been banished to the chaos realm by DSP? Punted from his twitch chat? DSP regularly insults and makes fun of other creators, devs, publishers, websites, even his own audience and everything in between. But he sure can't take a joke sometimes, or even light critisism or suggestions. It doesn't take much. As you can see for yourself with the many ban statistics, tools, and messages collected by the institute. Check out "Banworld" in the research drop down menu above to see some remarkable stats and ban messages from the past year.

Hardcore Research

Our Research

Starting with this site launch this very serious institution will be doing research and analysis in the field of Darksydephil, (a.k.a “Phil Burnell”, “DSP”) and his lore focused in three main areas. Research and analysis of the psychological behavior and history of DSP and his followers, on the anomaly that he and his members are, and last but not least the work of his many detractors. Opinions articles, news, and site updates will be found on this homepage below. Completed research projects will be in the navigation bar under "Research".

W e are pleased to announce that the DSP Research Institute has opened this website in line with our mission to study and understand the strangest and most perplexing personality on the Internet. Darksydephil has fascinated, confused, and enraged the young and old for over 10 years. No limits, no shame, no self awareness on the highest order. It is amazing to behold. His behavior and lifestyle has confounded the greatest minds. And now with a generous grant from our government we have completed our grounds and facilities, and have been collecting data on Dark since February of this year.

Of course the first thing we had to do was establish a strict safety protocol as we never want to put any of our research staff in danger. Researchers are all given protective gear, frequent breaks, and mandatory counseling. To date with these precautions we have not had any major brain injury or toxic tendencies detected with any of our staff. There is also a strict policy of rotation with the researchers to limit exposure to streams as much as possible. We thank the brave individuals who work hard at understanding the workings of DSP and his followers to strive at reaching our goals. They put their lives and mental wellbeing on the line for the greater good every day.

Thanks to their hard work and determination, we have completed our first project! Banworld is a tool and auto-updating database of all innocent memers and chatters that have been banished from Darksydephil's twitch chat room. They went into the belly of the beast and never came out. Not everyone is cut out for the United States of Phil. Now their final words will be put proudly on display in their memory, showing what it takes to get the ban-hammer in the world of DSP. Banworld records all bans, how many times he has banned the same users, the things he says in his own chat, and of course the final words of the banned. Due to technical reasons, a few days of data have been lost, but almost all has been captured. We also added a live daily ban section that updates every few minutes. We are open to new ideas if there are other things that the public thinks should be included in Banworld.

Check back to this page in the future as it will be a location for news, updates, and editorials on the Institute and DSP.

A very wise man once said; "darksfadill is trash". Yes, trash indeed. Lets get to work.
