Yeah, I don’t like forums in general, because they tend to have all the people there generally get inside of each-others’ ass. That’s why I left the megatokyo forums (which omo is admin of, and you know he’s the king of fully immersing himself in the asses of other people) just cuz it was so… ‘ugh’ is the best word. I like blogging because you are a community, but you don’t have to be up each-others’ asses. It’s kind of like the difference between a big city and a backwater village.
Meanwhile 4chan is a sprawling metropolis, which can seem a little too unfriendly, but if you’re an Andrew WK of the internet, then you’re gunna have a blast.
(this is one of the best things I’ve ever said. Put this on your ghosts of discussion thing.)
