What's new
  • Donate and support Agora Road's Macintosh Cafe to keep the forum alive and make any necessary upgrades to have a more pleasant experience! In addition, you will be able to have "moods" enabled on your profile and have donation only awards! Update: I configured the site with Brave Browser, so you can send tips to the site with BAT.

    You can now donate directly to the forum without signing up for patreon. You will still have all of the same perks in patreon but its now one less sign up method. It will be under Account Upgrades

    This is the submission thread for the 2nd E-zine! Please use the dropbox linke for submissions and bump the thread with ideas, comments, statements, or just to bump. If you want to submit your stories or whatever you want to the second edition.

Anyone else sick of seeing threads start with "anyone else"?

I see threads start or contain the word "anyone" or "anyone else" so much when lurking that it doesn't mean anything in my head anymore.
I'm guilty of it, too, so I'm calling myself out here, but I blame subconscious herd mentality.
Maybe I'm batshit insane. Willing to accept that, too.

I personally don't mind them, but I totally get it. Those titles get repetitive to read, but they're not usually a deterrent from the thread for me. I usually just pay attention to the subject matter. They'll still lead to some pretty good discussions. People will share their experiences and opinions or whatever regardless.
Plus, on the bright side, they seem to be much less prevalent than:
"I'm (nationality/occupation) and can confirm this is 100% accurate"
"This lives in my head rent free"
"First."
"Sweet Home Alabama intensifies"
So be thankful for that :)

I think all Agora users are very similar, but outside of this forum are a bit detached from most people. We come here partly to see that there's other people we can relate to, which is why our favourite question is "Is anyone else like me?" and then we discuss, and have an affirming experience that there are others like ourselves in this world.

You're right, I've grown far too comfortable with the sanctity of this place.

That actually makes a lot of sense.

This thread is as low effort as those you mentioned OP, you fruit.
Just because you use a more verbose language to circumvent the repeating phrases used by the offending beneficiaries doesnt mean the crux of your message isnt on the same plane.

Commit an act of extinguising your inner flame to seize up your engine of existence.

>"circumvent" "crux"
Its almost like I phrased my issue in a joking manner because it isn't that serious
