    Internet and Sexual Deviancy

    First and foremost I think y'all can guess what to expect from this thread from the title. When it comes to the internet I think one of the more universal aspects is being exposed to unusual forms of pornographic content one way or the other. Even in mostly "safe" social media platforms like...

    Wojak Culture and Modern Internet Discussion

    Hey guys been a while but I was wondering what y'all thought of the Wojak/PepeTheFrog/Chad culture that surrounds a lot of online communities. Personally, I have grown very distasteful of the whole style. I'm talking about the people who unironically use the word "based" and make edits of their...

    What can you tell about someone based on how they type?

    How much can you determine about a stranger on the internet based on their typing style alone? Forget the actual semantic content of a post, I'm just talking about style here - grammar, punctuation, structure, word choice, formatting, etc. - the semi-conscious choices people make when choosing...

    Do you think the Internet is depolarizing?

    I saw this video by Kursegatz (however you spell it...), where he talked about Internet polarization and how everything sucks right now: View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fuFlMtZmvY0 Big deal right? Many others have mused about this without getting anywhere. However, the videomaker lays...

    Fanart Central

    I don't know if any of you have heard of Fanart Central? (http://www.fanart-central.net/site/index) It's this old art site that had a good run back in the day, but was soon eclipsed by DeviantArt; although there are still people posting to this day. It's great if you want genuine articles of...

    Understanding and Opining on the FIRE Online Movement

    Financial Independence, Retire Early FIRE is a self explanatory philosophy and goal embraced by a group of people whose common characteristic is the desire to not be reliant upon a job. While virtually everyone has dreamed about sailing off into the sunset while they're still young enough to...

    I figure internet centralization was the cause for all the cultural problems we see today.

    I think it's well acknowledged by now that Tumblr and 4chan were the breeding grounds for the respective wings of terminally online unreasonable left and right-wingers through the 2010s. But think about it, would a bunch of teenage girls just be naturally inclined to talking about manspreading...

    Moving on from the 'Culture War'

    This is a communication I saw on the 'Letterbox' textboard, which I believe is a very cool perspective. Letterbox can be found at: https://afternoon.dynu.com/letterbox.html The thread was titled 'Moving On From the Culture War' and read as such: Here is something I tend to ponder on, and I...

    Internet Fiction

    This is a thread for fiction written about the internet. Stories that are either set on the internet, involve the internet as a major plot point, or are significantly informed by internet culture. Being published on the internet is a bonus. Non-fiction is allowed, as long as it's creative and...

    What do you guys think about the general state of the internet. What changes are you happy to see and what changes do you hate?

    Irony and internet culture

    It seems pretty obvious that irony is a big force in internet culture today. Shitposting, satire, and other meta jokes are everywhere, especially in places where a type of content has reached saturation. Things like amogus or fortnite provide large examples, but this happens within subcultures...

    The end of internet art is for it to take a life of its own, and then die.

    Apparently people (zoomers) call Jared Pike's dream pools "the poolrooms", and have added it into the backrooms mythos. I feel like they took something beautiful and cool and turned into lame creepypasta fodder. This got me thinking. I guess that's the endgame of all art born online is...
  13. The rise of profilicity and the future of society

    This thread is based on a post I made about the recent massacres in the United States. A sort of sequel to my meme critique thread which got a surprising amount of attention. Over the past decade I have found a lot of my social interactions to feel strange and stilted. Like the other person...

    Opinion on DnB?

    i feel like dnb conveys this broadly empty and somewhat inhuman quality. i really enjoy it. i haven't studied it enough to really understand exactly what makes it that way though. it couples with dnb album covers, which are unique in the same way vaporwave album covers tend to be too. they're...

    How does it feel knowing that you will never see anything new in your lifetime?

    The turn of the new millennium set the stage for a sea of originality and innovation. Almost everything from 2000-2010 was new and fresh. It makes me sad to know that every new app, platform, game or other piece of media will forever be riding off the success of its predecessor. The culture of...

    Am I the only one who thinks the internet has become noticably worse since the 2020 lockdowns?

    Community toxicity across the board is through the roof, political tribalism is injected into everything from memes to console homebrew, and actual creativity and quality content seems to be increasingly scarce. It's all drowned out in a sea of circlejerks and fake-jokes (I think that memes are...

  18. I'm getting tired of modern meme culture

    To be honest I'm kind of sick of meme culture at this point. It's something I've been feeling for over a year now and I've been trying to figure out why. I think the following observations may explain why I've been feeling this way. It may simply be a sign of cultural change or something worse...

    Maybe we SHOULD let the internet die

    I know, I know, here comes the contrarian shaking his phallic reference around a place where people are mindstorming ways to make the internet less >redditcostanzayeahrightsmirk, so what's the big idea? Let me explain: At the beginning were the nerds, maybe you nerds were there, but thing is, these people weren't of...
