I've been digging through a lot of my old online communities and i'm always a little surprised to see people still hanging around. The idea that we can get super attached to people we don't know IRL is really weird to me.

What's the incentive for still being active on the site?

Edit: This shouldn't be read as "Hey nerds get a life!" I'm just looking to compare and contrast my experience with online communities to yours.

I honestly check expecting the site to be down. Dimitri's pimp money overfloweth I guess.

I want to be the last poster. It will be my crowning achievement.

I don't have a lot going on in my life right now, obviously.

My pimp cup overfloweth with about 20 bucks annually to renew the domain. Pell pays for the servers, which I think is maybe about 40 bucks annually? It honestly doesn't cost all that much to keep this place going. Besides, I get all nostalgic looking at my posts from 13 years ago and remember the days I couldn't spell or communicate coherently. Drugs are bad, kids

Some of us have meet in 'real life', which by the way is a fucking stupid saying, unless you are all bot. Even a wasted life is a life and just because you post to a forum does not mean you cant have a social life. That has all ways been the problem with the internet people on it that dont have a social life and dont know how to interact on a social level assumed that the place was full of people like them so you have legacy sayings like 'IRL'.

If I start posting a lot of porn, how long is it going to take for someone to ban me?

This actually disappeared automatically from my history. I have no idea what made me type in the address.

A lot of boards are actually stuck in my muscle memory. I still occassionally type in boards that I went to when I was 11.

Second on the muscle memory; third on the 'bffs know no distinctions between online & irl'; first on you're all way hot.

yeahhh I could barely remember my password just now.

Agreed on muscle memory. And I do look forward to going back and reading some of my posts here.

This forum taught me how to spell and write and use somewhat proper grammar. It's funny how your argument is a lot stronger when the only mistakes you make in your writing are the mistakes you meant to make. Which is a complicated sentence. Fuck it. Y'all can parse that out. You're smart people.

So that's why I come back every once in a while. I AVOID this place because finding me on the web is too easy and I don't want coworkers or ex-girlfriends to find things I've written about them. Ten years ago that wasn't a problem and no one was smart or creepy enough to do that.

I just checked to see if this forum is still up and it is. Excellent.

Also excellent is that I remembered my password. I feel proud of myself.
