I fucking hate forums

11 Aug

I really do. There always seems to be assholes on every forum. One of the biggest problems is that old forum members beat up on newer forum members. I’m not talking about when a new forum member forgets to read the rules, that’s fine. I’m talking about when a new forum member posts a thread that has been done before.

Look, fuck you and your search button. Yeah, this topic might have been covered 11 months ago by you and your friends, but that doesn’t mean it can never be discussed again on the forum. In order for a forum to grow, new people need to come in. New people will not have been able to join in your discussion of a topic 11 months ago. The point of a forum is to actively discuss things, not to sit there and read old posts from ages ago like it’s some fucking scientific journal.

The people who go on and say “these threads must die!!!1” and “This has already been done before” can go fuck themselves. If they had it their way, the forum would have sealed itself off shortly after their joining, and kept the community to only them and their friends.

New people are inevitably going to post repeat threads. Deal with it. I don’t see why people enter a repeat thread only to bitch and say it’s been done before. If you have nothing to contribute then stay the fuck out.

    And then they complain when you ‘revive’ a thread or topic. “Look, you ass, I wanna talk about this!” You have a very good point.
