This place seems very ho hum lately. Have we run out of things to talk about? Or have I just lost interest?
It's just an evolutional process.
I came from another political debate site that I was a member of since 2004. Eventually I even became a moderator. Then, after about 4 years of pretty much debating the same topics ad nauseum, I eventually just snapped. I would ad hom random people frequently (usually one of the late influx of 17 year old angst-ridden homos who prided on calling themselves Marxists or communists). The incredibly rare times a female would go into the introduction section to make a hi thread, I'd post a random "tits or GTFO" jpeg.
Believe it or not, I was actually a very passionate and lucid point-counterpointer. I think the main reason I stayed refreshed so long over there is because, as an American non-liberal, I was a huge minority. The board is pretty international, and was composed of, I'd say, at least 70% who would be classified as American WAY-left, European socialist, or communist.
You can only talk about a finite number of subjects so long before something in you just snaps. As such, I figured myself to be on a countdown to perma-banning. I like to go out with a bang.
I'll probably end up graphically sexually harassing rivrrat or something.
You've lost interest. I know what you mean, though. My interest has lessen here, so I don't respond to as many threads as I used to, but I still come here to get some news or find some interesting things to debate about.
Could very well be. I haven't been on as much lately. Been busy.
This forum is pretty balanced, which I like. I recently found another one that seems similarly well balanced, I'm been spending some time elsewhere.
I posted for a while at Political Forum, which was ok too, but a little more tolerant of the more extreme righties, and the software was inferior. Haven't been there in awhile.
I've found a pleasant alternative for variety. I still like this venue, but I'm enjoying my new place as well. If you want the addy, PM me...
