I'm surprised it's just the BBS and not the internet that you've lost faith in.

Not really, when you have a userbase like Newgrounds has. I don't really know how to describe that userbase, I just know that it's there, here, everywhere. Perhaps too many of us are here for fun, but then again, perhaps no one ever told you to avoid having faith in an internet forum.


It made more sense in my head.

I think it's mostly the General forum. The others are pretty awesome. :)

I'm here to have fun too, but I meant those idiots who go into arguments and have no idea what they're talking about. The modern art thread is a perfect example of said idiots.

A lot of people post for the sake of posting. It's an old joke that the Internet was created for intelligent and measured discourse and has been doing the exact opposite ever since.

I thought that was one of the best threads the BBS has had yet. A lot of reasonable discussion, with mild attempts to prove yourself as the "smartest". You want to see hopeless, check out a gun control thread.

But I was smart in that thread, right? Right?

Anyways, truth be told, if an internet discussion or argument begins to invoke in me any sort of angry or negative feelings, I just walk away, figuratively speaking of course. This does mean sacrificing the opportunity to discuss/argue about the subjects that I actually care about, but its just not worth it, in my opinion anyways.

Good god, where do I begin with that?
I tend to stay away from arguments considering I have no knowledge of the things most arguments spring up from. Hell, I sometimes get into the occasional rumble, but the ones I don't get in usually turn into..... well..... the sandy hook thread.

I lost faith in this board quite a bit when they had the "being a transsexual is frivolous" thread last week. But that was probably just a reflection of humanities idiocy more than anything else.

You have tried the other forums right? Do you know ng population makes up of sautistic 12yo's who come here for jack-off material since they don't know how to get around parental blocks. The people on smashboards seem more "real" you can try if you want.

Newgrounds always had a stupid immature userbase. Instead of promoting intellectualism they put videogame parodies and dick joke flashes on the front page, this is why everyone creating serious animations have moved onto other websites like Vimeo or Youtube, because at least they get views even if those sites are just filled with the same shit tier of idiots.

The problem lays in having faith in an internet forum.

Why exactly?

Care about your own amusement and sure get involved when fancy a debate of ideas but don't make this place out to be something better than it ever was.

Indeed. The general forum is just flooded by incomprehensible nonsense and pointless posts.

I don't exactly come onto the BBS and expect to find people having intelligent conversations.

Granted I'm not saying it doesn't happen. I'm just saying it doesn't happen that often.
Like....1 out of every 100 threads have an actual intelligent conversation without there being a fucking huge shit fest about whos smarter than the other person.

I usually see someone with a big head arguing with someone with a bigger thread about stupid shit that lasts for like 5 pages before a mod comes along and either bans someone or locks the thread.
Case in point: Threads where Xenomit decides to argue with someone. Sometimes he just doesn't know when to let things go.

These previously made statements are slightly agreeable from my stand point:

This thread on it's own did better job of attracting some good mattered discussion than what's usually available. I avoid the general BBS because a good majority of the time the threads are just trash like and tasteless. I'm not saying people shouldn't have a good time, but too many threads on the general bbs are hardly topical. On top of that I see people get singled out or receive whiplash for not joining in on the general silly festivities of this bbs . That makes one sandwich I'd just rather avoid.

I suppose to compliment what I said, all one needs to do is take a look at the school bus thread a few topics down.
