They have that rule for some articles because it'd only cause edit warring and real people bashing without it.

Fixed. Fuck.

Its still really bad. I remember when there was the peoples real life examples on another page (cant remember what its called now lol) and it was of people who couldnt spell sharing their unfunny stories. Then the forums are full of idiots, and the fact they go on anti-pedo witch hunts against animated shows and comics for no particular reason.

All of reddits defaults, plus some of the larger subreddits. Their general feeling of entitlement, prejudice, and pretentiousness is just awful.

As for the rests of reddit, they may not produce much original content, but they can be informative, interesting, and cast light on angles and subjects I otherwise wouldn't have thought about.

9gag, le reddit, Roblox, Minecraft forums (Was good until the 10 year olds moved in), and that's it. I would say 4chan, but I genuinely enjoy the place; there's something about the pure absurdity of it that cracks me up. Plus the BBS we have here is just a mildly toned-down /b/, 90% of the people here spew hate left and right for no apparent reason, the only difference between you guys and Anon is that they don't censor what they say or post.

But yeah, 4chan and NG are pretty good in the scheme of things.

/b/ sucks, why would you go there? And why are you using the word anon as a noun?

Gearbox forums are really sad. There are a few members over there who are genuinely good/funny people, but the majority of em would fucking drown in a teaspoon of water. They're so frail.

Also, most all religious/spiritual forums preach tolerance and acceptance, but when I raise one simple question as to why someone like me, a straight man, is looked down upon in society if I think buttsex between 2 men is fucking gross, they're all like , OMFG THIS HIMOPHO DOESNT GET IT...

Oh I get it alright, butt sex is gross and they're just to afraid to admit it aloud. Probably cuz they are in fact a little homo themselves.

Amirite?


I tried, later then.

A lot of people seem to be confusing /b/ with every single board on 4chan.

I haven't gone to /b/ in at least 2 years because there are so many good boards on 4chan. /b/ is terrible.

I've been recommended some dope video games on /v/. My roommate is now completely jacked because he's spent time on /fit/. What I'm saying is those boards have a purpose.

Also, Newgrounds may have a better layout but I'll be damned if we don't breed just as many social retards as 9gag/reddit/etc.

Im not sure why people do that, most of the boards are of better quality than newgrounds forum.

This is also my answer. YouTube must have some of the worst people commenting on it. I feel like it's the only place i can go where everything and anything turns into a discussion about how "America is the worst country" "Fuck cops" and "9/11 was an inside job".

Yes, this grasped my attention as it completely sums up the majority of YouTube comments. That pisses me off. America is only labelled as the worst country because people focus on it's problems more than other countries problems and totally emphasise them. Cops are basically paid community members to keep your neighbourhoods clean. An don't even mention those fuckin' September 11 "Truthers" they're so damn stubborn.

People rant about Newgrounds community sometimes, but you know what? I think it's a splendid community. There can be totally stupid, bitchy people but for the most part I don't feel like I'm surrounded by 8 year olds the entire time like I am on places like Gaia, Reddit and others. If I could choose somewhere on the Internet to live, it'd be Newgrounds.

The worst community I have ever seen by far is the WoW community.

Never in my life have I seen so much nerdrage over an MMORPG, nerdrage that is in fact mostly genuine.

Unfortunately, yes, I was actually a part of two of them for a very long time, I still use Twitter from time to time, though, if you look in the right places, it's easy to avoid the immaturity.

Ah, well since this thread seems to have been dragged back up some how, I'd say League of Legends is pretty fucking bad. They're one of the few communities where they're real time comments in game are worse than a lot of their threads, save when they're fighting over what champ is better at what.

And all those fucking Spanish speakers that can't speak a lick of English makes it hell to communicate properly. I mean, I think everyone should know a bit of Spanish myself but fuck me at least TRY to speak English.

The Elitism is really really fucking bad in that game though. Seriously, you die a couple times and they label you as a horrible player and the reason why they keep dying. And if you run from a fight you KNOW you will lose they get pissed if the enemy ends up killing them as you escape, like you should have thrown yourself in front of the enemy to save them. All the while they're sporting some easy as fuck champ like Yi or Darius or some other bullshit OP AD champ. Seriously, get over yourself, fucking pricks...

And their articles arent even always ok. Some of them are poorly written and then they mention something offhandedly and put a caption with text underneath it which is like family guy tier comedy.

9gag. It's a place where all generic virgins/forever alone teenage pseudo-intellectuals kids whine about women, make-up mysoginist stereotypes, circle-jerk around bad comedy tv shows from the US, worship stupid pop icons or shitty movie/tv shows characters who are usually womenizers/cynic/wannabe-clever dickwads.

They like their stuff a lot. They play shitty over-commercial videogames, objectify women like Emma Watson (who should definitely be scared, btw) while doing the same unfunny Jessica Parker jokes over and over again. They hate on hipsters and "the new generation" but they have no clue how generic, unoriginal and silly they are. They have no idea how to use memes (Socially awkward penguin =/= sexually awkward penguin).

And they repost... they repost... and repost... and repost the same fucking shit all the time. And worst of all... is that they revote up... revote up... the same fucking posts over again...
