Dear /lit/, I have been with you guys for a little over a year, and I really enjoyed this board for what it was: discussions of literature, however since a flock of redditors and new people came to this board and just shitposted none stop of everything not /lit/, I will have to say goodbye. I'll check back in a few months but until then good luck trying to fix this piece of shit board up. It was a nice board. Hopefully you guys can get it together so it won't be like /pol/ or /tv/. Anyhow if you see a post that is not lit ignore it or say not literature not lit.
Been posting here for two years, and I don't see a problem. It's the same threads we've always had, about the same books and authors. I think you're just one guy trying to stir up shit 'cause he's bored.
OP I think long time members of this board already left. They wouldn't have given into the shitposts like they have been if they were still here. Anyways, I'm probably going to leave too. Redditors/plebs ruined every with their shitty YA and none related /lit/ posts
I think my becoming like /pol/ and /tv/ he meant how no one on /tv/ talks about film. They used to act on discuss films like art but now they're all shit posts. Same with with /pol/ they had political debates but now it's just shitposts
There was a /pol/ influx about a year ago where there was nothing but race-bait, woman-hate threads, links to feminist blogs to get outraged about, innumerable "Why is Marx so shit?"-threads, posts about degeneracy and how faggots are mentally ill, etc.
I'll take literature related trash like John Green, YA, genre-fiction etc. over that. Not that I'm seeing any of those threads on the board right now.
All me :)
I'm sick of this Marxist board, so what better way to get you to self-implode by introducing le liberal leddit contingent.
Soon you'll be redpilled like the rest of the boards on 4chan :)
They are not in anyway related to literature. I gave you examples of this shit and you said you didn't see them so I showed you and now you are saying they are literature. Please die.
Even if they were bait threads (which they clearly are) it still wouldn't really be egregious if a few people on an imageboard dedicated to literature took enjoyment in something the rest found sophomoric.
I'm sure there are people making and posting omelettes on /ck/ too instead of some sophisticated French-sounding dish with expensive ingredients. That's not to say there is not a difference in quality, though, but /lit/ is -- and always has been -- too pleb to be elitist
The reason it's so bad is because you faggots talk about the same books all the time
>hurr have you guys read this book that is talked about everyday? what did you think of it?
If you don't want shitposting just scroll the archive for the rest of your life. All the discussion you could possibly want is in there.
Yes your right it's always been pleb but the quality of posts in the last few months have been horrid. Sure there was shit posts but now it's like the whole board is clogged with them. I'd say this board was pretty pretentious but it was still decent but now I think I'll look for a new site for awhile
if you think blogs are literature, you definitely belong to reddit
OP has a point. The threads of this board has continuously gotten worse, especially with the reddit influx. I've been reporting every shit post I see but I'm done for today, it's exhausting. I've been here for years, and although I'm usually just a lurker, I can honestly say this is the worst it has ever gotten and I don't understand the people are who defending John Green , game of thrones, and blogs(probably the redditors) but to say this board has always been like this is outright lies. Yeah this board discussed the same books for years, but there were always other posts that were pretty decent (occasionally) that someone pointed out earlier. Tell people to check the archives if you don't wanna see the same posts again. Almost half of the threads going on right now could have been found yesterday in a different thread. We need to push the redditors out or get them to stop shit posting
Hue. I actually just came back to this board today after not checking it for about a year. Used to spend a stupid amount of time here every songle day. I'm amazed at how little the board has changed. It's exactly the same as I left it. Like, the same threads. /lit/'s a good place to get your philosophy chops up because there's just the right amount of pressure to make you feel like you want to be in on the conversations but know that if you aren't solid everyone will call you a faggot. Once you've got the plan down, thougj, the board kinda becomes pretty shit and useless.
The board doesn't ever change, you do.
Genre fiction was here for years. I was here since 08 and I got 45% of my current library of fantasy and scifi from lit.
It's just that early last year we started a general. This stopped people from asking questions that were answered before, and shitting up the board with unnecessary duplicates.
