apologies forus, I deleted all my posts. will endeavor to give it all another burl. i am a mental. I just never understood the lurker thing for a small forum. what was that old chestnut, 20% doing 80%.  its almost like some people think they have time up their sleeve and they think theyre getting out of this one alive
 
just got the feeling I was drowning the place in my bullshit while everyone else, having taken the trouble to register, just looked on silently.
bit embarrassing really. as I said when forii opened, im happy to post like a maniac BUT once I'm feeling isolated around the ruck and maul area
I tend to get the yips and start thinking fuck maybe my maniacal posting is inhibiting other cunts from posting

as a bona fide miserable billy-no-mates cunt i tend to go to forii for a bit of fellowship, having fun and bouncing things around often turns into shitty news stories.
No fun me just biffing shit out there only to have people silently staring back at me. Thats some children of the corn shit. Plus, me with zero common sense, I never
really know if I've crossed the line with the offensive shit unless someone tells me. I'll give it another go if some other pricks actually start posting. 

no issues with manny, he is merely the victim of my negative cunt paranoia. Foriiwise, when I see 1 guest online and 14 members, 12 of whom have ever said
anything, i think the worst.

"negative cunt paranoia" sounds good for business.

"negative cunt paranoia"
not a bad band name.

probably better than "Bulimic Babies Barfnight"

i'd still buy a t-shirt by either.

ps the word "paranoid", I see a psychiatist once a week to teach him English, we yak about his patients and every time I helpfully mention "maybe they're just paranoid?" he flat out laughs his arse off. Turns out the definition of paranoid for someone in his profession isnt some trifling aside. It's about as serious as it gets. "Paranoid" to him is the nutjob believing the voices in his head whispering "they're all staring at you, and talking shit about you, the time has come to kill them alllll."

I feel like thereís more elasticity to the English language and Japanese is really stern and direct. Is this accurate or would you say more racist?

my japanese is shit so I'm poorly qualified to say but from what I've surmised from my 800 years on this fuckhead rock, English has a far bigger vocab, there's just a zillion different synonyms for basic things, eg, for "look", you've got glance, gaze, gawp, stare, glare, glimpse, ogle, peek, peep and on and on

ps, while I'm here, FUCK JAPAN

I'm working on fixing the shit coding that makes the screen drag out like that. I'm not the most adept hand at this. Could be an all-nighter.

EC is working on the last story of a collection weíll be putting out. Pumped to reveal. I donít think he haunts the forusphere anymore, unfortunately. Iíll try to get him in here with a sternly-worded invite.

Twitter is so fucking BIG. The Forisseum is struggling. Akin to a rural bus stop alongside Cassiopeia.

Trends will come and go, but this dark, little obsolete corner of the web will endure. It will be here, should anyone feel inspired to use it.

Sprague, perhaps if you keep running Daily Mainichi News Wire out of here, I can RT it and with enough patience, people will want to pipe up and weigh in.

I may endeavor to smart off on here with some regularity in the near future. I sense a thunderbolt of inspiration with my name on it.

To anyone lurking, I know what it looks like in here. Put some skin in the game, get in on the fun. These salad days won't last.

yeah should give it a burl. Speaking of writing shit, in news that has brightened my day irretrievably, I have reestablished contact with Dixon Phyre AKA Miserable Cunt AKA BBC Newsanchor AKA Manwithtwodicks AKA fabulous floating flotsam AKA the very best writer none of you have ever seen. In all honesty, writing-wise, he laps the phalanx of prolix pulchritude present here, current company very much included, while doing one-handed pushups on our graves.

As expected, the alkie cunt is back on Bondi Beach, back to strutting about the show clad in nothing but his old fluoro budgie smugglers, still asking rando sunbathing sheilas if they'd like some "lotion in their motion."

Manners, are all these thread views coming from bots? I dont really get how it couldnt be, what with the forisseum having a perpetual 2 guests online with 4-post threads having 500 views...




ps, hope you didn't mind me addressing you as "Manners". Quite posh nickname iHomo.

It could be bots, yet this is also an extension of the main site. I think of this currently as basically a running talkshow between you and I, with a bomb ass news
column being the real reason people are here. Like any variety show, there's usually one or two bits that really bring it in.

Manners sounds gangster. I'm in.

The thrust is correct. Big social media venues promote censorship, conduce knee-jerk petty strife, and are no substitute for a completely open forum,
for which I will continue to brandish the torch. I want to shout out the very entertaining threads on here by Ted and Bibles, two of my favorite writers. And
Ryan for sharing his interests.

On the other hand, nature follows abstraction, in this case of ultimate content optimization and neat social ecologies touted by Twitter. My hope is that if this place keeps puttering along in the shadows,
nature will follow the urge to be unbridled and creative, and we'll have ourselves a full-fledged cult of the obscure in no time.

I'm probably setting myself up for a banning but I looked up the answers to the questions on the Google. Sorry!!
Title: Re: SS Cygni Nova Feedback
Post by: Sprague Dawley on August 14, 2018, 05:08:56 PM
I didnt know the answer to ANY of the questions, fuck knows how I got in here in the first place.

Pathetic.

Totally shit at reading the stories on this site, a couple of sentences in and my eyes glaze over and I span the fuck out. FUCK! Stupid internet attention span. Hopeless. It's ruined me.

Hoog, as much as I'd like to read your story about Charlie or whatever, it seems I am mentally-handicapped and cannot do it.

I will knuckle down and get back to you.








* addendum; "knuckle down" means spend the rest of the day wanking off
