Today I get to hear a raft of Tumblr-ese in the real world after commenting that some things are problems that should be fixable if you just cut down on the crazy and actually attempt to fix them.

That in and of itself is a little crazy and further proof that the worst parts of the internet seem to be leaking the fastest. but it gets worse.

At work today I also got to witness someone eating a dog treat i put on the floor today. this was after having our rep visit and tell me how OTHER dog treats tasted... It's all human grade ingredients so I suppose it's ok, but, it's kinda like "WTF?" am the only one that thinks pet foods are for, ya know, pets?

Of course then i also got to hear the story about how someone believes in aliens after watching some history channel "documentaries while getting my coffee, and also a very casual conversation about BDSM, followed by where to buy some decent risotto. Some random person on the streets while walking home decided I was the person to say something incredibly harmless and nonchalant to me and then follow it by, "hey, do you know anywhere I can get some crank?"

...............

There's a point where your mind just breaks.

I fail to see what this has to do with 4chan.

The community is terrible enough for me to stay away from 4Chan.

What's crazier than the bottomless hellhole of the internet to become the epitome of polite society?

and yet as everything goes crazy around us, what makes more sense?

I don't want crunchyroll to become what 4chan has become, with the resent appear of random topics without sense like "all religions are false" "do you eat while you shower".

Oh yeah. Because hacking into accounts and spamming random websites with gore and porn DEFINITELY makes them SUCH a good website.

Oh, don't worry, CR is approaching that level at an exponentially rapid pace.

Personal opinion, I make no claim that my statement is fact, these are my observations and experiences only.

Mostly the result of the age of the average user being 16-22 from what I see. I think a lot of the younger people here who have had access to some pretty impressive internet capacity their whole lives and as such, internet has played a massive role in developing their social skills and influencing opinions. Let's be honest most of the shit-talk that people spew on the web would be things they would never consider saying to someone's face, everyone is a tough guy behind a key board. Social media and even things like texting have taken a large portion of the personal aspect out of human relations. Week long conversations/arguments among complete strangers about religion/politics are largely a result of internet forums. Internet has also led the way to the era of everyone needs to stand for something, when people are forced to take a position on a controversial issue, you are going to have conflict.

The big problem with this is you don't need to have any credentials whatsoever online. Make a convincing enough argument that appeals to someone and you can sway them to your way of thinking, even if you are completely full of it.

I've never been on 4chan longer than 30 seconds at a time. I've only heard bad things from that website, so I never pay an extended visit there. It's also abysmal in its design so I can hardly navigate it even if I wanted to.

isn't 4chan the home of trolls, the birthplace of all memes?
