If you think this is bad, oh boy. Just wait until you get into the real world.

Also, I'd like to note that on the internet, your person and pretty much everything about your real life self is totally irrelevant. That's one of the best parts about the internet. Try not to bring up personal details when trying to make a point.

Unreasonable expectations. We may all be on CR, but we are strangers, with many of us even being working adults. The primary reason many of us are here is not to be buddy-buddy and make merry, but is, instead, to make use of CR's functions as a business. CR is just like offline life; a mixed bag of personalities, and with no obligation to be as friendly as you prefer.


Outside of actual "PM me to chat!" threads I'd expect this to be the case. Not sure why people would be cold if they openly invited casual chat.

I'm open to chatting and making friends if someone notices some common ground from the forums, but my time to chit-chat is a bit limited. I have a lot of long-distance friends or people I used to game with to chat to already so adding more people just because is hard to keep track of.

so i have been crawling through the crunchy forums for a while commenting here and there especially on posts of people looking for others to chat or play games with etc but whenever i have messaged someone they have been cold and rather dickish, i just don't understand why people post looking for friends if they aren't going to be friendly to people who reply.

your thoughts peeps?


i'm sorry to say this but you are giving off those vibes....

maybe the people you messaged thought of the same thing when they got your PMs What were the things you included in your PMs btw ??

This place is heaven to some, a toilet to others.

If you are mainstream white bread who uses tumblr, facebook and twitter, you'd probably love this place.

If you come from more niche or less liberal/left leaning internet spaces, you'd probably think most people here are pretentious starbucks drinking liberals, and you'd kinda be right, but it's still some people's come of tea.

I haven't been in here in ages, but might as well answer this topic.

Not sure how that makes sense. People generally are more rude on the internet than they would be in real life, lack of retribution and all that, but that is just my experience.

just have to sift through and be able to judge who honestly wants to try being friends and those who just want number boosts or doing it to stroke their own ego.

Find who you get along with.

Most people on here are nice.

Also relevant to this topic you sent me a pm. I do hope you aren't saying what you describe the people in your main post as me. As I see it I was just answering your question.

I think most people on this thread have explained various perspectives on this matter. Not everyone on the forums is accepting of private messages because they feel that it's more private/direct. I get a lot of private messages to translate Japanese or technical/programming questions. I try to be as accommodating as I can but even I have moments where I'm either not in the mood to respond to private messages or moments where I was just taking a glance at the forums for a bit before going out/going to sleep ... whatever. The point is - not everyone is going to be accommodating or open to private messages, others will be.

Just don't linger in General Discussion too long - it's where you'll get the most amount of resistance.

CR is pretty ignorant especially in GD but it's not filled with as many dicks as most forums.
CR isy just filled with people with little to no social expierence (it's true according to most members)
