>>2861>So in other words suck it up and deal with it is basically what you're saying
Not exactly. They're trying to tell you that yes, everything's shit right now, but it doesn't have to be. You can post on here if you want to feel the "Secluded place with only people that actually care and know", but otherwise, there's no other place out there (That I know of, at least).>The only type of people who say stuff like this are the same people who are pro-new internet or people who weren't alive or old enough to experience the culture back then.
I'll say it again: They're not trying to tell you to go fuck yourself if you desire things how they used to be, they're trying to tell you that you have an alternative on here, at least. Even if everything becomes even more mainstream, corporate and normalfaggy, you can take shelter on here. Post about things you like or anything. We can't go back in time, but at least we can set this place up to reminisce the quality of content and posters there were back then.>Plus most of the people on here were born in like 2002 so that makes sense. You kids were too young to experience the internet culture of the 2000s
Well, I am a 2002fag myself, but I can tell you that I at least got to experience the last glimpse of it. When people weren't so fucking obssesed with politics, when content on the internet was mostly made for fun (flash games especially) and people were genuine, instead of adopting the normalfag mentality of "B-But le cringe xDDD", even though they'll probably never even see each other face to face.>And don't understand why a lot of millennials like myself have become very bitter. Plus this isn't just about the internet this is also about life in general.
Like I said, I do understand, and I think most people here my age will, too. People like to throw around the "Times were better when you were a kid just because you were a kid", but it doesn't apply in this case. The technological advancements of the last decade have been huge, and there were a fuck ton of them. The world when I was a 4 year old fucking around with Windows XP isn't the same as the one I'm living in today in any way. It all went to shit (With the things you yourself said: Everyone is an asshole to each other for no reason, everyone is trying to start seeious fights by pushing politics into everything, everyone wants to get a fuck ton of money for doing anything, so there are much less passion projects made just because someone wanted to make something). I think I can even relate to you on that level, since I'm only 19 but I feel jaded as fuck about everything, even though I haven't lived much. But in the end, what I want to say is: Yes, everything changed for the worse and yes, it's probably only going downhill for the following years in the near future, but you don't have to go through that shit alone. We'll be here to vent, joke or whatever that's going down, because even if we haven't lived similar lives, we can relate to the fact that we long for the same "good old times", and that's probably the reason we are here talking to each other in the first place.
