Are you guys nice now?

Hey... I used to be a regular (to understate it wildly) on here, and I more or less stopped hanging around several years ago. It started to get to me - all the negativity and such - I know most of it was jokes, but this forum sort of made me feel bad and negative about everything. Perhaps it was just too much snark. I really can't remember. I just recall having to stop using the site. I made a decision in my life around that time to stop doing things that weren't making me feel good or improving my life in some way.

I quit this place cold turkey, and after a few years I started poking my head in once in a blue moon to post something or occasionally look something up. For many years, the people on this forum were who I talked to just about every single day. I don't think I ever met any of you in person either or shared much about my personal life... or maybe I did. I talked to you all the time, but didn't really make any friends here. I guess that's my fault... and maybe all the negativity I saw was just me focusing on the wrong things.

Anyway - not sure who remembers me. Just thought I would say "hi" and see what's up. Also - some of the people on the other forum I've been hanging out on are being dicks right now, so I'm taking a break over there.

Spoiler:
to jog your memory in who I am - I was doing the Anime threads, the Asian movie threads and I was the guy that got swearing allowed on the forum - improvement? Tough call - but you can say "fuck" and "shit" now because of me.

Negativity? I've never seen anything like that on here. You're making it all up. People who make stuff up like that drag the whole country down which is why we're doomed and will someday be taken over by the Dutch - you just wait and see. I had a great day and now it's turned to crap because of you. Thanks just a ton for coming back.

As you can probably tell, things haven't gotten better.

Welcome back.

Yeah - no kidding. Bunch of jerks. Glad to see I'm not missing anything.

Are your posts really serious? If you can't take a little ribbing from a group of forum members maybe the Internet isn't the place for you..

Honest answer, it's worse. Lot of negativity here. Still love the forum and I'm here daily but the tone has become pretty mean spirited.

They are nice in Book Talk. I don't expect the Politics forum will ever be nice again.

Re: Are you guys nice now?

IIRC you were in a band but quit right before they hit big. Don't recall the band though (I'm not sure if you ever shared that on the forum).

Same guy or am I thinking of someone else?

This was me, yes. Good memory.

You want to see nasty? Check out the Tony Scott suicide thread in Movie Talk. It's a virtual celebration that he won't be making any more bad movies.

That sucks... Tony Scott made some truly awesome movies. I think that's the negativity I was tired of - the whole "I'm so cool because I hate everything" bullshit.

My mistake. I thought it was your own van where you tasted your own semen.

I'm not sure if it's any worse than it was back in the day, but Music Talk is a joke these days. Every thread is basically fair game to threadcrap on everyone's music tastes.

Stick to BookTalk and you should be okay. Only the coolest people hang out there.
