Looking to see a headcount.
Working on more stuff. Fostering communities. Doing more local film stuff. Prepping for a wedding. The usual.
With an attitude like this, I've no idea why people are abandoning the site. Sorry for shitting in your cereal, fella.
Just working on the hellacious personal debt issue and trying to put together an epistolary book in the science fiction genre comprised of logs, recordings, computer data, and various other bits of miscellanea. The idea is that it'll become a best seller and solve all my financial issues. Right? Right?
Oh, and school and work. Summer? What's that?
Yeah, freezes up from work using IE for me too. So I can surf at home but I'm forced to be productive at work which sucks.
Holy shit - this. What. The. Fuck. was the point of this thread?
Anderson - go fuck yourself, whoever the fuck YOU are. Maggot. This site is dying and you pull some Cool Kid's Club shit like this?
How about this? List the members you WANT a head-count from and that way everyone else doesn't have to watch you wave your tiny diseased dick around.
This site is fucked. What a fucking circle-jerk.
I'm here, but as I've never been an active member of the boards I don't think that counts for much. I see myself as the board's Metron (or if you're more of a Marvel fan, one of the Watchers), passively observing events from a really big chair.
Yup. A shitty thing to say to someone who's just being friendly and is actually a pretty decent member of the boards.
I know who you are. You're over 40.
Anderson is certainly a decent member of the boards, but I think he should have titled this "Are There Still People I Know Here?" to minimize any confusion. "I don't know who the hell you are" is distinctly unfriendly, although I have read enough of Anderson's stuff to know that he was probably just kidding. Maybe.
CHUD, to my knowledge, is the only for-profit business that not only allows, but encourages, old customers to abuse new ones, as a sort of "justify your existence" hazing ritual. It stems, I think, from Devin's challenging of people's assertions, which is itself a good thing, but must be handled deftly. I think lately the nuance and subtlety have diminished, and the toxic atmosphere we see now is the result.
There's hardly any toxicity now. Less activity, but I haven't seen too much jugular-ravaging lately.
Oh, go give someone positive rep they didn't deserve, motherfucker. We all know you're the real problem with these boards.
Only five behind you, my friend. Your head's the only thing blocking the view of my own gravehole.
Geez, Anderson, what a shitty thing to say. I wouldn't blame Art Decade for saying to hell with it.
I still read on a daily basis, but I find it really hard to engage on the boards. Feels like people only really interact with those they already know. The site's news content has become more specialized I think....there's lots of articles on shit I don't have any interest in -- someone does, of course, so it's fine for them. I just feel like Chud doesn't have much broad appeal anymore. Guy.com is slick, but the myopic maleness of it sucks. All boobs, booze, and wrestling. Meh.
I read Badass too, but that place reeks in Devin's smug, know-it-all, hypocritical bitchiness, so it's kinda DOA.
