BRING BACK THE FORUM.
« on: December 01, 2017, 02:56:28 PM »

i am so fucking sick of facebook and twitter and the way it's destroyed how awesome the internet used to be.
WHO'S WITH ME?
but LOOK, it's a FORUM. i can't believe it's still here. this forum has been here since A LONG TIME AGO.
people used to talk to each other, and it was really nice. people even met and got fucking married through this forum.
BRING IT BACK.
really. let's talk all day. i'm at my computer for the next three hours. i'll check back every few minutes to hug you here.
the end.
also, free to talk about how you miss the internet of 2004, this is a fine place to do it.
xxx in internet solidarity xxxx

Can a facebook admin scream: ‘hell yeah!’? Yes she can.

There's no place like home. We've got ALL THE THREADS, you can see what is posted (what a miracle!), we're not being monitored and monetized, and anything goes.

I still check this forum quite often and I really hope it will rise from the ashes. I really miss it, I really miss people I've met here, I really miss chatting about completely random stuff and then suddenly getting into a super deep discussion with some stranger from other side of the world. God, I loved the internet back then.

me too.

this iteration wil be different.  the fan base is different.
but the spirit is the same.

i plan to try to help them all learn about the software, & why the community that  was here used it in the way we did. 

especially trying to start a new topic for each new discussion.

I truly kind of miss this place. Good conversation, nice people (mostly), some banter, some beefing. But it was way better then the information overload of nowadays.

I think we, People From The Offtopic Land, had a thread last year about the good and bad sides of the board, and why people left.


(And I recognize halft of the people on this thread! :mrgreen: )

I assembled this team for purposes of a League of Extraordinary Gentlemen thing, but in reading this thread it occurs to me they're all highly bangable. Yeah, even Spider Jerusalem.

I miss this dang place. I basically spent my teens here, mutually dissecting lives with 50 or so beautiful weirdos from around the world in graphic detail.

I learned how to write songs here. I learned how other people were going through the same shit as me growing up queer. I'm pretty sure I learned how to give a blowjob here.

Anyway, you're just walking around with these teeth in your vagina and you think it's normal cos like, who do you ask about that shit? Then, one day you go to have sex with someone & they're all "WHY DOES YOUR VAGINA HAVE A TOOTH IN IT?" That'd be damn awkward.
