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.

YESS!

pro-forii/vaguely anti-twitter article here:

https://www.theguardian.com/football/when-saturday-comes-blog/2018/jul/27/football-fans-internet-club-forums-twitter-youtube-facebook

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 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

Any criticism is appreciated. I'm just starting out, and I want to get good enough to be published some day.
