I've been coming to imageboards less and less now. Although it has always been said that oldfags and the originalfags just leave eventually, I never really saw how. But now, I see where all the oldfags go. I guess there'll always be enough anime and other sources of entertainment to keep them alive. Still, it really, really hurts, especially since I have no friends I keep in contact with, so who do I talk to?
>>2411 I personally have grown too attached to imageboards over the years my taste in 4ch however has grown very bitter. I personally and can more than likely say for some that, most venture elsewhere looking for that sort of sanctuary. there are many places to seek out for many interests when it comes to keeping touch with imageboards. as far as conversation goes, there are places where some can reach out to others in an anonymous format, you are more than welcomed here. we try to make a home for those that want an some sort of place away form most of the nonsense of today. however there are many places like i have mentioned before for those that need a place to open up and develop these anonymous ties, and some have been going for years.
>>2453 for the sake of convenience when it comes to finding the best quality in a certain series or tag of doujin. its rating system is not influenced by anything other than "X anons thought this was really hot" I tend to want to see the best work done for certain tags, than the unfinished or poorer quality ones in the most recent releases.
>>2455 Alright, but I see comments that say "fuck discord" for example, that get +60 downboatz, and then people defending discord. Or I might see people talk about how hot a webm of guro is and that'll get downvoted while comments calling said video "incel shit" gets upvoted. But why? And then comments with low enough scores on exhentai get hidden, which is censorship through democracy. Then you have comments on YouTube that have a dislike function, that I assume lowers the comment on the list or automatically gets deleted (without telling the user of course). I just don't know.
>>1728 Is it true that "wapanese" meant "white-japanese" and not "wannabe-japanese"? I mean, I thought "wigger" was "white nigger", even though "wannabe nigger" should be applied because >implying only whites pretend to act like niggers. I had always thought it was "wannabe-japanese".
>>2478 A lot of those were written around the time of Chanology, so probably not. Kind of like how in the 19th century, the Crusades were seen as early European imperialism and an attempt to "civilize" the "barbaric" Muslims, even though that is not the case at all. Different people with different views completely misinterpreting others' actions, and/or pretending something occurred when it did not.
>>2482 "And my mind goes back to a girl I left some years ago (Who told me) Just hold on loosely But don't let go If you cling to tightly You're gonna lose control Your baby needs someone to believe in And a whole lot of space to breathe in" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYreqV2snUg
Although my penis is extraordinarily long, it lacks any substantial girth. Therefore, I have little chance impressing any woman, especially if you take into account my subpar looks and bland personality. On the positive side, I can fuck my own nostrils whenever I feel lonely.
>>2912 i personally enjoyed those types of pens when i used to draw on pen and paper, its been a while since i have done so since i now use a bamboo tablet -which i suck at using- but in time i feel i will get the hang of digital drawing. oekaki thread when?
>>2916 i personally still have trouble with straight/smooth lines, i start the first layer with a rough line concept, then smoothen things out as i go by new laters, then delete the layer with the rough lines.
pic related is my best result soo far. Still need a bit of work.
>>1728 I don't mean to baww, but when did talking about killing/raping become a bad thing on imageboards? You used to see the occasional edgepost and it'd either be ignored or get humorous replies. Nowadays if you do it you get lambasted. Why?
>>2943 as of recent there is a level of sensitivity going about the internet along with extremism, so there is the overly sensitive side that finds themselves on the wrong side of the internet, and you got another side that is not really in on it for humor, it seems like you cant really tell who is joking anymore, things are awfully fucky though.
>>2947 Who is that and why is he advocating reading material that should be read only after the entire Western canon of philosophy, history, and other more esoteric works from the past are read, and only to better understand the political viewpoints of some groups, rather than as works of gospel?
>>2948 Actually, look at his eyes. A lot of anons talk about the "soulless" eyes a lot of lefties have, but what they don't realize is that it's in all disillusioned useful idiots. It's why they tend to adopt fringe or radical viewpoints, never fully understanding them either.
>>2949 >"soulless" eyes Actually soulless, literally. They have not inner dialog, they kill their children, they adopt any anti-natural behavior that caters their passions, they desperately need to feel themselves good regardless the cost for civilization, they can't meme, the are ungrateful and bitter... they need just a little help to kill themselves and many people would be glad to help them out.
>>2943 Because bad people got into the internet. Why do you laugh at stuff like rape and killing babies and shit like that? Because it's absurd and it contrasts with whatever else you were saying, it is unthinkable for some anon to do that kind of shit so he laughs since such absurdity can be no more than an edgy joke that leaves that "god thats so wrong" tickle on the inside. Now, people would really do that kind of thing we used to joke about, that same guy that used to laugh now feels nervous cause some random fuck is about to do the thing unironically and not only that but probably trying to normalize it, he might even go to the extent of feeling like you two are on the same page.
>>2950 doesnt the modern world pushes every single one of us to that future? Sterile sex for the sole purpose of pleasure, a pointless "make money, enjoy product" routine expected for all our life, brainwashed offspring, destruction of choice and personal freedom; It's like our whole society is built to turn us into souless sheep that will consume and keep going, not because of jews but because whoever is doing this is a manipulator, and his or her endgame is having control for the sake of control, no bigger pic, nothing, just getting a boner knowing (s)he's in charge. It is doom, fueled by someone's fetish.
>>2950 No, no one is "soulless". Everyone has a soul. These people are dead inside, but there is a way to bring life again. It is also nothing to be smug about. It's incredibly sad, but that is the way things are. >>2952 Long story short, read Western canon up to Spengler and Ortega. At least you understand it's not entirely the Jews, and no doubt you will come to understand that, had the Jews never existed, the West would still be in decline. >It is doom, fueled by someone's fetish. I'm taking this, heh.
>>1728 JAPANESE ANIME ISN'T A FUCKING MEDIUM. IT IS MORE SO A GENRE "a category of artistic composition, as in music or literature, characterized by similarities in form, style, or subject matter." THERE IS NOT YET AN EQUIVALENT WORD TO "CINEMA" FOR ANIMATION IN THE CONTEXT OF NATIONAL INDUSTRY. FUCK WEEABOO FAGGOTS.
