tonight i was browsing and posting as usual when i noticed despite 121 people being online hardly any posts had been made in the past hour and a large majority of 'people' online were guests.

do all these 'people' just browse? have they left the tab open? does @IlluminatiPirate just want more ad bucks? i doubt it

This got me thinking about dead internet and if agora road was just a meta-honeypot designed to see how a user reacts to learning the internet is fake so it can make itself more robust and we are just data farms so even the most skitzo drug-addled mind could never see thru the mirage.
All these accounts are used to monitor the real users postings and all of their postings are other real users postings from a different closed of server. This creates a feed back loop of skitzos interacting BUT NEVER TRULY ABLE TO INTERACT! it makes sense why the postings ratio is off because of how many posts of a certain user would actually be able to be used by the bots monitoring and curating? this would almost act like a bottle neck.

if it still has a bottleneck of posts this leads to the conclusion that there is a small number of real users being monitored by the site witch means the program is STILL IN A BETA OR ALPHA PHASE meaning THERE IS STILL TIME TO STOP IT!

I have personally interacted with and seen the posts of the majority of the users in your screen-cap in real time and I have to say that they are all rather pleasant.
I didn't think I would ever be saying this, but you need to spend more time on your computer.

I, for one, am a real life user. it's just I don't come on everyday and sometimes I feel that a lot of peoole know each other already and I don't want to intrude.. I remember in the chat room tried chatting but a lot of people just didn't say anything, but did also get 1-2 human responses. Just so no one says I'm a bot you can check out my history and my website which is also my little piece of the internet... www.waveboymusic.com
peace
