The only people who hype up Reddit are fifteen year old potheads living in their Mom's basement, glued to their phones, and ready to respond to posts before they get lost in an avalanche of memes and one liners. With the simple act of reading comments on a popular Reddit post, you can feel your IQ dropping, a flatulent vibration, like air escaping from a balloon with its opening held too loosely. With every forum squelched by Reddit, the Internet gets dumber. It is a real life parallel to Idiocracy. What comes after communication via memes is grunts and facial expressions transmitted over video conferencing. Then comes the flinging of feces.There is hope. I notice the return of some old names posting during the Tour. Obviously Reddit isn't all its hyped up to be. New is not always better.
Sadly, there is a national shortage of Mom's basements. Redditors have had to double up, sometimes even triple up. It is outrageous. As wealthy as this country is, it cannot give houses in the most expense real estate markets in the country to those who deserve it. And we are not talking about any people here. We are talking college educated people with valuable degrees, like unicorn hunting and grievance studies. I really worry for the future.Those poor fifteen year olds! Don't even have their own rooms! Or is it a punishment for being potheads?
I'd be very interested to know what the forum hits are like compared to say a few years ago. After a brief return of some old regulars during the TdF this forum seems to have quietened down again. Of course it always quietened down after the TdF but I've noticed when posting in recent times I don't get replies or reactions as fast as before. That suggests less people are here. Much less.
True but if you look at how many pages were on some of the old race threads that tells the story of how reduced is now. Of course it was also much less politically correct which meant fun and games and a lot more bans eventually. And some threads have disappeared completely for the same reason.Okay, I wasn't here 10 years ago but it's not like nothing is happening...?
