TWITTER: Everybody is outraged by everything and has to argue about anything with anybody
FACEBOOK: Link salad where it's impossible to keep up with anything or anybody
REDDIT: It's reddit

Sucks that those joints have like a gazillion dollars more than me and my crippling debt, but at least I'll go bankrupt knowing that these forums are far more entertaining and less obnoxious than any actual social media site. Thank you, forum users, for not being like the above.

Thanks for everything, pal.

Thank you Lowtax, truly. if this place closes down, I'm pretty much not going on the web as it's the only place I like reading online anymore.

Yah, social media is loving retarded but this forum is not without it's faults.

Why was this thread covering an important subject gassed a mere 8 minutes after it's creation!? It had no time to come to fruition!

Because I'm cutting down on dumb white noise in GBS, and a story about having to poop while driving certainly qualifies.

If you said you were cutting down on black noise that'd sound racist. I just want you to consider this moving forward, ty.

facebook is brutal now

endless links with no comments from the people who posted it

sometimes the headlines are so ambiguous and the topic controversial you wonder if they are for or against the subject. its like hey buddy you arn't a news agency stop just spamming links.

No poo poo deleting every social media app from my phone and blocking Facebook from my laptop has improved my productivity and happiness tenfold. I kept the FB Messenger app to talk to friends but it made me realize that there are only four or five people who I actually give enough of a poo poo to keep up with and if I want to know how their life is going I will ask them. The first couple of days without it made me really restless and agitated like I was coming off of a withdrawal. It was bizarre, but now I feel better.

These forums, so dead and so gay, remain a part of my day however

I was actually just thinking about the fact that unlike any other social media site where it's all about you these forums are focused on ideas and actual discussion instead of posting a link and having 10 people say it was cool. I I think will be interesting to be able to cross post something awful discussions into places like Facebook and see what people say

It would be cool if SA had a thing to let me know someone is replying to something I said without having to use the search function but otherwise it is perfect. Thanks for not rage-deleting it at any point in the last 17 years or however long its been.

There's actually a goon who does this. He keeps posting Associated Press breaking news with no input from himself and everyone thinks that he's super on top of it
