Same Sh** Different Site

Posted by Kaeos on Thursday, February 18, 2010

One day I will find a forum that isn't eventually taken over by the same brand of boring old bullshit that drove Cinescape, Mania and Excelsior into a ditch.

I'll be on the front page reading articles.

Did I do it?

:-(

It seemed to me like we had gotten past the other day's heatedness, for the most part. It'll be back, but it seems to have quieted for the being time.

Most of the message boards I've visited in my time on the Internet have had a similar dynamic. They all seem to have their ups and downs.

I have noticed that the happier we seem to be as a group, the less often we post. Posting explosions seem to follow in the wake of personal attacks. At first, it's angry and reactionary, then it's civil-but-heated, then discussion is animated but generally congenial, then things start to get quiet, then the near-flat line. If the near-flat line is not followed by a blip, the board dies. (Duh!) If it is, then things start to get less quiet. Then discussion becomes animated but generally congenial, then civil-but-heated, then angry and reactionary, then personal attacks. And so on.

I've just come to accept it.

I like posting on message boards.

Goodness, I, too, cannot wait for the Web Fairy to wave her wand and restore The Internet to the way it once was: full of intelligent people who possess the ability to express themselves in a clear, concise manner, yet not at all given to indulging themselves in things such as memery, witlessmanship, and poop jokes.

No Goiter, not you. You have a funny way of being a good guy who posts with intelligence and dare I say wit. I consider you a friend man and I get your humor, sorry if I left it hanging there.

I'm just not in the mood to get into the same tired old conversations with the same tired ass hats who seem to worm their way out of the woodwork and pick the same old fights with the same old stupidity. Sock puppets, thinly veiled sarcasm, pointless insult threads. It's amazing how quickly the same tired bullshit can surface when when you least expect it.

I like posting on message boards too. It's a shame because you're absolutely right about the typical flow. Difference is, the blow ups, personal attacks and pretty much everything I just said seems to follow when the same 2 or 3 people show up.

Corona is invaluable to me and to our show and Pat has been a friend and supporter of ours for a long time now, but I'm see the same useless, unfunny shit take over the forum from the same useless, unfunny people.

Like I said, I'll stick the main page. Enjoy :)

I regard the situation as one of a conflict of intent.

Some people want to just have fun, enjoy themselves, etc.

Some want to annoy people, humorously or otherwise.

Some want to conduct a serious discussion about film, albeit from a typical standpoint.

Some just want to shit on everything.

That's just how it is. The Internet is a rather normal place to discuss "culture". "High Academical Persons" are just as fucking awful and stupid as the internet.

My point is: people suck.

Why should the internet deviate from this norm?

The threads in this forum are as close to "normalcy" as anything on the internet, but without the enormous amount of detritus usually accompanying the opinions. You get the funny troll without the unfunny troll, you get the learned person without the person who is pretending to be learned. You get the poster who just wants to talk about X and you can ignore him/her.

What's the fucking problem?

No, seriously.

Mmm. K-Dawg. I solve that dilemma by only being sort of a hyper-real version of myself on the boards, and generally, your show. I don't take myself, or anything anybody says very seriously at all. I'll save that for real life, or maybe Facebook. Of course, I do wanna bang Kah until she can't walk straight, but that aside...

I don't know the details of what's going on so please take my comments on that face value. There may be some heavy things happening that I'm unaware of.

That said, I consider it a good thing if there's disagreement on these forums. It shows diversity. It shows growth of the site's userbase.

Understand that with growth comes more problems. It's like that with anything in this world. Watch the difference in what happens when 3 kids play versus 30 kids. The same holds true of an online forum where there's 300 users versus 3000.

This place won't be perfect. It's going to change. The old CA forums evolved and changed over the course of the six or so years that they existed. If these forums continue to grow, they will change further.

That doesn't mean that I will tolerate people being assholes. If there are assholes to be dealt with, you can email me, you can Twitter me, you can Facebook me, you can send in a scoop. I read everything that gets sent my way.

Maybe Kaeos is just venting because he needs to, and that's fine. If it's bigger than that, and I need to get out a ruler and smack people, let me know.

No matter where you go, there you are.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is the first "I'm leaving" thread on CA 2.0?

Can someone check the minutes?

I'm not sure KV, I'm not sure at all. This place is easily better than just about every other board on the internet with a 'light touch' moderation policy by a factor of at least 2,000,000%.

The diversity is part of the fun. You can take what you want or leave what you don't want, you can engage and argue, post pointless shit or simply ignore completely at your own discretion.

I know some people's posting style or content, my own included, could well annoy people from time to time. I also like to think that very occasionally I might say something funny, meaningful or interesting enough to start or stimulate a conversation.

And it works the other way too. If I don't like what somebody says I just ignore it. I certainly ain't worth me losing sleep over it. I have enough stuff to worry about in the real world.

I am a big fan of yours Kaoes and I am sad as I think the board would be a worse place without you, but in short, I am with Gus here. I just don't understand what the problem is.

Hey-settle the hell down back here. I said I was done with the forums, not Corona. For the record Hicks, I did not "leave" so it doesn't count. Bill owns that honor, he just had a touch more class than me and he left without saying a word when waste-of-skin #2 showed up this week.

Not PMS'ing I just have a natural aversion to any environment that includes the blatant fuck-tard-ness that follows when certain ass-hats who put up sock puppets, (tired old routine) show up AGAIN (like they have this week) and pick shit with me....AGAIN....like they always do.

And Dalton, you're a good chap and a funny bloke. I appreciate your comments and I am fan of your posts too sir. MY NAME IS GUS, I guess I haven't gotten to know you well yet sir (unless you are someone from old boards under a new name) and I appreciate your viewpoint on the state of forums in general.

But it's not a matter of people's posting styles or the usual general goofiness, it's a matter of a couple of dick heads that want to stir up bad blood from 6 fucking years ago showing up, putting their cum stained sock puppets on "wally" (so original) and start this bullshit with me again.

There's far more interesting stuff to read and comment on out here on the front page of Corona. Hopefully, eventually they'll get sick of being ignored and leave....like they always do and go ruin someone else's board....like they always do.

If I'm being too vague, I apologize but the assholes who I am talking about know who they are, and many of you who have known me for a long time know who I'm talking about. The names are irrelevant.

All I can say to them is, let me know when you boys get around to growing the fuck up, getting a fucking life and realize that no one thinks your shit is funny or interesting any more except for you. Pray we never meet, because I do take shit personally, it's one of my flaws.

You wanna have words with me privately, I'm glad to talk offline. chaoticradio@gmail.com
