pruned. i stopped posting at SA forever ago.
i mean what it mean?
that's what i thought. i used to post there when iw asl ike 16/17 but i ahd to leave
why they hate on dumb niggas too much?
It generally goes like this:
4Chan: Basement dwelling super nerds of the internet and highschool kids- Small base of inrecibly talented and funny people (and aspies)
SA: Generally extra nerdy and extra virgin, but in a much more intellectual manner, talented and funny (and aspies)
OT: Generally 'cooler' crowd, lead more of an 'internet-second' life. (and aspies)
There is, of course, overlap in every group. For instance I call SA home, but I would probably fit more in with the OT crowd. The stereotypical member is what I described and then on the outskirts you have subtypes of users:
People who like to keep up on internet happenings
People who like to view the world through the eyes of people who they aren't in real life
People seeking very specific information/help on serious subjects and are willing to wade through the bullshit (SA is great for this specifically).
People who like to laugh
Anyways, for the longest time SA was at the frontier of internet humor, but as the base crowd grew older, they too became more of the grumpy unfunny (read un-edgy) adults and the torch was passed to 4chan to carry on the funny. That, too, has since died off to an extent and has left the internet in a sort of equilibrium, where the edge of comedy, content, gore, etc has been pushed so far past the boundaries that there's really nowhere else to take it.
In my opinion, the widespread outbreak of the concept of 'trolling' completely ruined everything that was once good. No one can have an opinion anymore and like all other things, 1% are innovators and original, 9% can mimic the innovators and have incredible success by piecing together successful methods, and 90% completely run that shit into the ground.
Actually the creator of 4chan was originally an SA goon but got banned during I believe Shark Week, where the already gassed up moderators and admins get even more banhappy and permabanned him for being a furry or child porn, I forget. He and his buddies went and created 4chan which was an americanized version of the anonymous message boards that were all the rage in Japan. The anonymity of it, coupled with the talented and mostly funny base members made for a message board utopia, where social status meant absolutely nothing. It was all anonymous, no moderators, no forum superstars, no reg dates, no post count, just Be Funny.
Im rambling now peace
You swingin on my nuts like any other broad/ you swingin from my nuts like a fuckin tether ball
ville is reasonably accurate in a jaded and very SA biased way.
is that moot shit true? i dont remember that. the last time i posted on SA was right before lowtax got the shit kicked out of him by uwe boll.
there is still funny to be had.. good examples of recent hilarious memes are bachelor frog and currently "puncoon". even rage threads still have lulz left in them. of course its not going to be all hilarious, it never was. i think we just think back on shit and we forget the mindless crap threads and only remember the greats. 4chan has always been a shithole, but thats the idea.
OT is DEFINITELY over the hill. the mods got really gay and fazle doesnt give a fuck anymore. even i got banned recently, so you know something is fucked up. we were killing it back in 05/06 though. god some of the shit we did over there.. jerry garcias daughters nudes is one of the absolute most fucked up things we ever did. i still kinda feel bad for that one.
That's a fucking epic misquote if I've ever seen one.
Yeah you're probably right. And I meant to say this in the original, but it could just be ME who is getting older and less funny. Or the internet has completely ruined me, either way.
Nowadays all I really do forums wise is check GBS for any huge internet or world happening, the latest gold thread, and then if I need to or want to learn something about something specific ill go to the relative subforum.
And then check RM for battles and waste time.
I'm just fucking lazy, but yeah, moot was perma'd for something like that.
Oh and to anyone who wants to sort of catch up on the 4chan/ot/sa stuff, you can easily waste HOURS at
which is a wiki site that chronicles pretty much all the goings ons at 4chan and then sometimes youtube user ROCKETBOOM's series called Know Your Meme is pretty informative
Oh and the Uwe Boll shit was fucking hilarious. Did you see the after interview with lowtax?
What a whiney baby hahahaha.
He is a really good indicator of the kind of people socially you see at SA.
But yeah, ive been at SA for almost 10 years now and I will def cosign it as a great place to be. It's paid for the $10 reg fee and upgrades i've bought MANY times over with priceless advice and information in specialty threads (pretty much anytime I have to buy, fix, or do something I don't know about I can find a 100 page megathread there with the best info available). It can also be funny as fuck at times, just wading through like anything else.
ED in and of itself is fucking insane... i dont spend much time there unless im catching the tail end of a personal army situation or i catch a blip about some big raid or troll job on someone and need the quick cliffs.. i think it takes a special kind of dedication for these kids to chronicle everything that goes down.
yea.. i saw all that i watched the live stream.. uwe fucking WRECKED all of those nerds. i figured at least one of them would get a decent shot in. that really was the way to go about it though.. i mean he makes dogshit movies, but for all the toughtalk people tossed his way, for him to say ok tough guys ill fight all of you consecutively and then beat the shit out of all of them? he wins at life, even if he loses at movies.
ive picked up tons of crazy info on OT as well.. especially OT financial crew. if you have the rep, you can make a thread requesting info on anything over there and people who are experts in the field would be right there to drop you the line. of course that was back when we had 20k members online at the same time and the shit moved like a chatroom does more than a forum.
JESUS fucking christ man i'm watching all this guys going deep videos and they are throwing me into hysterics
props for informing me agentspits
lmao I just read about uwe and the fights
goddamn he killed taxlow or w/e the fuck his name is

but why is he still getting up at the count and flailing his arms? lol what an idiot
I want to know it allll!
