And the majority of the conversations are between the same 10 people, chatting about how boring and pointless their lives are. Day after day after day.
Hey, my life is lots of fun! It's summer, some of us are being a bit dopey :)

I won't deny that the chat room is often filled with multiple varieties of terrible, but the forums or any other area of the site are hardly the annals of the Library of Alexandria by comparison. There are a number of legitimate criticisms you can make about different parts of the site, sometimes the same people are to blame for that and sometimes they're different folks altogether.
The insular attitudes that result in responses like, "Oh, I have lots of friends on Newgrounds.com, if I don't know you then you're not worth knowing" are pretty bad, but they are all over the place here. Come on into the chat room sometimes, a lot of us welcome folks who just want to talk about interesting junk :)
