OP went to 4chan.net and had a bad time. OP is the living embodiment of the Eternal September.
For one thing, 4chan preceded Facebook, and the valorization of anonymity came from the Japanese 2channel image board years before that.
So much fail.
lol, 4Chan is amusing, but it is what it is, and this blog post hits the nail on the head. The funny thing about you, Evan, is that you exhibit what I now like to call "The Dando Paradox".
In lay terms, you are a self-hating man seemingly obsessed with and posessed by the mindset of a lesbian fourty something year old low-middle tier US collage gender studies professor. Amusing and contradictory then that these philosophies are juxtopposed to your love of 4chan, 4chan being what it is. Paradoxical to the max I would say; must cause a lot of anxiety and internal conflict. Which would explain a few things. The fail is all yours ;)
Nah, I think I hit the nail on the head with the Eternal September comment, ergo U MAD and using my real name in contravention of teh ruuruus.
As a sophisticated pervert, I can get away with dismissing my interest in 4chan as purely academic, because I actually went to college, not "collage."
Dando, you didnt get online till well after september 93 so shut your piehole. lol @ collage, you are taking Daniels route I see for lack of an alternative path. Oh well, fair enough. I was just looking at a perverted collage on Chinasmack, so maybe Freud was right, anyway I digress.
Be honest Dando (also your real name) 4chan is extremely fucked up, as is the attitude individuals display when mingling as part of the 4chan herd. Dont tell you you havnt felt it; slipping into very base thought processes when using 4chan or similar sites - when someone says "kill yourself" in responce to an empassioned plea for attention (as disgusting as such a plea may be) is your first response "lol" or is it "poor person"? How does your online response to this kind of situation correspond with your RL response? As much as I believe anonymity to be a fundamental and crucial part of best internet practise, we as a society cant allow utter lawlessness and sure as hell shouldnt rely on anonymous to police the net by some kind of twisted online user concensus.
Be honest Dando (also your real name)
Wow. That really takes me back. I'll humor you. Back in university, it was so taken for granted that Evan Dando was my real name that one pimply geek actually gave a police officer that name when he got pulled over for speeding with me in the passenger seat.
Your brain has so many questions for me, Alex, and I'm not answering any of them, because I am sexy and mysterious like that.
4chanthropologist or 4chan apologist? Y U CARE so much, bro? Sure, my complex love/hate relationship with the premier homosocial antisocial network does deserve its own thread, but it won't be this one. You may direct further inquiries to Spiderman.
Lol....'sOK. Thats enough info.
I appreciate your tacit admission of self loathing regarding your "complex love/hate relationship with the premier homosocial antisocial network". Baby steps...we'll get you through.
Quite why anyone thinks this thread was created for Dando is beyond me.
you are taking Daniels route I see for lack of an alternative path.
There were plenty of routes to take, I just chose the one that required the least engagement from me and caused the most paranoia to you. I am surprised that you still feel the defensive need to name-check me, but it's delicious none the less!
Why you would think that you calling me out for a typo could make me paranoid I will never know. Another thing I will never know is why it would be delicious to be referenced as a petty twat incapable of debating ad rem...but who can plumb the depths of Dannyboi's educational mind? (More to the point, who could be bothered...)
implying repeated spelling errors are merely typographical errors
implying such errors are not evidence of a paucity of intellectual rigor
implying that this is not fair game in debates between Internet trolls
lol. and it is also fair game to pooh-pooh such tactics as the pathetic last resorts they are.
pathetic last resort
your best shot, please.
