I've been around these godforsaken textboards for too long and it's undeniable that it went from a friendly network of communities populated by a handful of friendly NEETs to a decayed ruin squatted by a half dozen mentally deranged individuals.
Everybody used to be friends back then. Everybody talked to each other. Now everyone in IRC is either gone or idling. What's the point of sticking around?
I feel like everyone has moved to greener pastures, not because the format is old, or that textboards are obsolete or whatever, but because the userbase has grown up. They're either finding their source of joy somewhere else on the Internet or completely outside of it.
This is a pretty terrible year to be online anyway. The Internet's a fucking mess. You could argue that only the places we all visit (imageboards, etc) are a fucking mess because of the clusterfuck of the past two or so years (how many goddamn times did we hear the word Gamergate? For how long am I going to have to withstand written crusades against the alt-right boogeyman?). When 0037 made this in 2011 the Internet was an easier place to be. Sure, we still had our share of the mentally ill, but SAoVQ was alive and people could interact with each other. Now everything is a fucking mess.
Or was that because we were more innocent back then?
I wonder what 0037 is doing nowadays. You still show up here but you don't interact with us as you used to. Are you busy? Did we scare you off? In a sense I kinda wish I knew more about you because you seem like a decent guy but it's totally understandable that you run away from this place. Archduke scares me a little bit even if probably harmless.
It's not like I'm digging through this and feel like I'm wasting my time, but it's more like a faint feeling of wrongness. Maybe I'm too stuck in the past and don't belong here anymore? Have we abandoned this place and left it ripe for ransacking by net nomads?
Sorry, I fucked it up and deleted it. I'm high as shit right now so you can just ignore all this
It's hard to make anything fun for the depressed.
I like your post
This, combined with "Think of me as Evil" [ http://assets.wwf.org.uk/downloads/think_of_me_as_evil.pdf ] makes me despair for the state of the world.
You can't close Pandora's box, we're stuck with this. There are huge economic incentives to keep it going and most of the general public don't want to stop it. The power to change the world lies in the hands of marketers and companies encouraging people to buy buy buy. This of course creates perverse incentives to destroy privacy. The more they know about you, the more accurately they can sell to you. With no public outcry ("I don't care that Google knows what porn I watch") no regulation will ever be put in place, doubly so when any country to do so would come under fire thanks to the interconnected nature of modern economies.
I feel like an old Bolshevik awaiting his show-trial. The utopian dreams of what a global computer network could do for human understanding and relationships hijacked by marketers to encourage you to mass upload worthless photographs so that friends you've not spoken to in years who live in your own city can ignore them. It's as though the entire point of social interaction has been missed.
Combine this with all the terrible UI decisions in that article [endemic in modern UI design, even for desktop operating systems.] leaving this nightmare inescapable even if I don't use social media sites (In a fun case of misfortune turned fortune, my often bleak worldview tends to make most attempts at faux-niceness/obligated reciprocation fall flat because I'm already subconsciously seeking excuses to reject validation.) and the future becomes very upsetting indeed.
The worst thing is, one can no longer retreat into real life. One cannot "grow out of the internet" anymore - it's no longer an option. Even old people are on Facebook. If I stick to the computer, I use 4-ch all day and miss what everyone else is talking about: If I stick to real life, I sit in a corner while everyone else uses their phones. There is no winning option. As time moves on and these limited choices and market-driven intrusion into our lives become more common - Glass style headwear putting everyone in front of a viewfinder whenever they're in public, Automated cars logging your every journey, Google Loon style projects ensuring that even if you flee to the ends of the earth you'll still be within range of the internet's tentacles.
> we should be able to move in public spaces without being exposed to advertising
I strongly agree with this. I'm ad-phobic and it's very frustrating to see this gigantic bill boards.
w you did Kindaoor 6 years. Tried to get where the old people went to. Got banned from every place after a while. Just couldn't jive in.
I was walking home last Friday, when
like the Jewish Conspirators had one-upped the
bas3ques, and locked them in their plane
which was a light blue Douglas DC-9
that started turning white as it sank
into one of Earth's many active volcanoes.
into one of Earth's many active volcanoes.
Remember to double post just in case
in case the semen oceans should freeze
which they won't, since the volcanoes keep
the semen at room temperature quite efficiently.
So I've recently started drinking with the boys, but my inexperience has led to me making a few poor decisions that have gotten me laughed at.
Share your knowledge of alcohol please, how to not go overboard, what types of beer and hard liquor to try/avoid, dos and don'ts of mixed drinks, etc.
pack your anus full of broken glass to avoid rape.
but what if they rape you with a none organic object, like a strap on. The only way to not get raped is to use a buttplug and then have a rope around the body, then lock the rope with a key and throw away the key. Thus one can not poop, but allso no one can insert anything to once anus.
All rapists carry knives. Ropes are useless against them. You're also counting on a rapist being willing to destroy a valuable strap on.
I shouldnt have to plug my assx te@ch women not.to rape instead
What have you done today? Anything been on your mind? Feel free to go into as much detail as necessary.
Only bas8que niggers may post here. Thanks for your cooperation.
No, thankfully I only had to a small piece on either side of it.
Was I edgy or something? I think my post was pretty "OK". What is the matter, are you watching those video? Is those kinds of videos your kinds of videos, that you are watching? ^_^
Send feedback to my noneexisting e-mail plz.
Late on your car payment ? I remove GPS units , no more Repo's $120
So like, dead people, did no one tell you what dying is? You looked at the brochure for this and scanned the bullet points: unconscious forever, rotting away to nothing, ceasing to exist and you were sold on this. Just fine with it. Fucking dead people. Dumb as fuck.
NOTE:I write this in base64 only, because I dont want spiders to make flys catch up, in this corner of tha internet.
This is correct. If you wish to ask me questions, you must go through Anonymous.
How could you delete my post, moderator! This is outrageous. Rules:"Say whatever you want as loud as you want especially if it's a personal insult aimed" Give it back now!!! This is rule breaking(this is for moderator, as it is breaking the rules)! What the fuck are you doing??? Have you gone mad? With power? Give my post back!!! I did nothing wrong.
ticks is your board gone forever.
NOT THAT I CARE OR ANYTHING
samefag ! ! !
Yeah. I didn't really care about it anymore.
Frideynight.com might get its own imageboard accessible only Fridey nights, but we'll have to see if I can motivate myself to do it.
CHANGE BACK LIMBO BANNER!
the new one is shit, is that 0037 car? FUCKING POOR FAG!
I always remember it being the car... what was it before?
allso explain what car is?
It's a thing that moves on four wheels, but that's not important right now
Shii is a gentle soul erudite scholar who needs to be loved. We must find Shii and gently caress him. Shii's long thought pieces curves around into the post-modern imaginarium and through the social perspective into a modern interpretation of mysticism. He violently questions the status-quo through his words and into the collectivist interpretations of politics. His readers moan with joy.
>Shii (pronounced “she”), otherwise known as Susana Montez is a local singer from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. She’s of Cuban/Philipino decent and is a singer/song writer and is trying to secure her spot as Miami’s next biggest pop star.
Actually, not active since 2012. Never mind. A minor bump in the road.
Anyone got a screenshoot of that interview or somwthing
A couple of things that appear to be completely lost:
But not lost: https://u.pomf.is/kjycrn.jpg
Why such interest in shii? Did he like invent anime or something
When we publish the First Folio of his Digimon Fanfiction, the world will know that he perfected anime.
Shii also invented the 3 button mouse, considered to improve productivity for over 55% of all workers in the private sector
I know enough. For example, the yellow electric mouse-like thing is called Zapmon. That should give you an idea of my knowledge of Digimon.
I miss 0037.
i'm right here bud
the real 0037 here
sorry, been busy watching barbaric TV shows
I still miss you 0037!!
about how many of your wiki articles are not publicly available?
In a thread on /b/ people where posting links to unknown textboards and imageboards, someone posted this:
Oh shit they're onto me.
Why are people on /b/ such mean bullies?
this is fucking hilarious
> Yeah that's right, I'm an imageboard and online communities otaku
But if he's on the net 15 hours a day, why is everything so slow?
Most of the time is spent driving off tokiko
