For example, this user x-cellar_door-x and his romantically involvement with one of his role-playing buddies isabellaswan. It's so weird that I knew this but I couldn't help it... it's written on his and her gb wall. I was just happened to visit his profile page at the right time. Hahahaha


It really does confuse the shit out of me when people who have been on the site for barely a year end up with like 10,000 guest book comments. My only priorities here are to discuss cool anime with other fans, but apparently I wandered into a teen dating site instead.

I pretty much use facebook as a good way to stay in touch with people and indulge in common entertainment. Way too many selfies on other social media platforms. I mean, do you really think i enjoy seeing your face that much?

Now that selife sticks are all the rage, I'm pretty much convinced we're approaching an apocalypse of some kind.

2007 was horrible. A lot of CR users like to kiss forum mods ass. Some were wannabe mods. Some mods that sworn to be active are rarely seen in the forums. It's more like a status more than a duty. **cough slow cough moca cough star cough**


back then, (i've been here on an off a little bit but my oldest accounts have been lost to memory and time), paid users were also exempt from the banhammer usage of the mods as well. A free user could say or do the same thing a paid user did and got nailed. The heavy use of banning and warning led to fear of mods, and thus sucking up way too damned much.

Granted, there was a lot of idiocy back then too, but the inexperienced mods did not help. Things are far better now.

I noticed mattatron (vega) got banned right after I jokingly put up an image of vega. I didn't put 2 and 2 together until I saw your gb. He was banned until 4015. I wasn't even trying to get the guy banned but have a laugh with masks.

True. I don't even bother with gb and groups on cr, just an awkward post here and there and most of the time I'm busy with actually watching anime.

Me and my best friend rarely get on facebook. I'd venture to say anyone with depression could probably do without it, also. We're not that hopelessly dependent on technology to not have traditional photo albums and go to social events. I'll agree that just about everyone gets depressed at some point in their lives, with or without facebook. Yeah life is tough.

I agree with Serif in that SM is very important on the business side, on the personal side I have no use for the mainstream SM sites such as FB, insta, and so forth, but I have a business class dedicated solely to using SM for businesses. Its quite annoying, but that's the way of the world now..

You are truly spot on.

I do want to edit one thing though, for shut-ins. For them to be able to connect in any way , most likely online, it can immensely brighten their lives.

My last social media acct was Myspace in the late 90/early 00s and it was only used to meet girls. As far as i am concerned there is absolutely zero sane reasons to put your life online for others to scrutinize and profile you unless you are in show business or something similar where sharing what you are doing makes you more money. Is a reason the EU created a law to be forgotten online, and it wasn't just for the criminals and politicians. Life views change as you mature.. but your employers will see the old stuff and the new if they look. And doesnt just about everything lead to depression in one study or another? Putting everything out there to be scrutinized gives ammo to those internet trolls so kind of shooting your self in the foot if you are so involved you will let it depress ya.

What?

Isn't Facebook a place to feel better about yourself?

correlation does not equal causation, and the study doesn't state that social networking cause depression. facebook usage links to more life dissatisfaction and negative emotional symptoms but not depression... lmao

I find FB helps somewhat in keeping in touch with friends you don't see often. It will do when you've got nothing better. But I think Face to Face is better and healthier.

Facebook is an amazing tool that lets me communicate with others, so Messenger is a savior since I have limited texting and such. People who become depressed because of some s*** they see online are just weak. I can't empathize.
