>Newfriends will never know the superhuman glory of D&E's trolling >Newpals will never laugh at Sunhawk's reading habits again >Newbuddies will never see the original Pinecone threads >Newchums from this point forward will always know /lit/ as that place where people complain about a Reddit invasion
>>7597814 I spent a decent amount of time a few years back scanning through old threads. The Pinecone Shakespeare stuff was interesting. I am sure that is saved though, as I have seen plenty of screenshots/copy pastes.
>>7597807 Please be a troll If not: your kind is ruining this board. I'm not just blaming redditors, but you faggots who decided to just "come here for the memes" and memepost all the time. We used to actually discuss literature some of the time, now it's nearly impossible.
>>7597807 No, you won't. This is /lit/ and you'll read whatever the fuck we tell you to read. You plebs are so deluded that you actually think that you enjoy the works you're reading on a bimonthly basis. Until you start with the greeks (and yes this means learning ancient greek you lazy fucking pleb) and work your way up to Emerson or Swinburne, you aren't even qualified to use the word "enjoyment" in reference to an artistic work of poetry. You don't know what the fuck it means, your lexicography of the rabble has diminished that adjective into something that can be used both to describe a towering monument to western culture and a coca cola.
Get the fuck out and don't come back until you know at least eight languages, one of which is latin and three of which are completely dead. Then, maybe we'll conndescend to reply to you.
>>7597881 Fresh off the boat, from reddit, kid? heh I remember when I was just like you. Braindead. Lemme give you a tip so you can make it in this cyber sanctuary: never make jokes like that. You got no reputation here, you got no name, you got jackshit here. It's survival of the fittest and you ain't gonna survive long on 4chan by saying stupid jokes that your little hugbox cuntsucking reddit friends would upboat. None of that here. You don't upboat. You don't downboat. This ain't reddit, kid. This is 4chan. We have REAL intellectual discussion, something I don't think you're all that familiar with. You don't like it, you can hit the bricks on over to imgur, you daily show watching son of a bitch. I hope you don't tho. I hope you stay here and learn our ways. Things are different here, unlike any other place that the light of internet pop culture reaches. You can be anything here. Me ? heh, I'm a judge.. this place.... this place has a lot to offer... heh you'll see, kid . . . that is if you can handle it...
What time timity is it now? Why it is thee time for thine's hapestance! Thats right good lads, we are to be what we are not to be, and that is the question! O yip yip woot woot! Upboat and beaterims, and jimmies.
What the fuck is wrong with you fags? You guys actually read the archive?
Imageboard posts are meant to be ephemeral. That's something of the only appeal of an imageboard, that it exists solely as the activity of its users, that its jokes and content and culture only survive by being reposted. If you weren't there for it, it's gone.
>>7598399 This is correct. Of course there were hundreds of high quality posts, playful witty banter and fierce rebuttals, all of which much better than what's currently on the front page. So what? Much like life itself, /lit/'s beauty is its impermanence.
What the fuck is wrong with you fags? You guys actually read books?
Speech is meant to be ephemeral. That's something of the only appeal of a language, that it exists solely as the activity of its speakers, that its jokes and content and culture only survive by being retold orally. If you weren't there for it, it's gone.
>>7598465 Redditors say stupid things and make good pasta. Case in point - "How I read. 1) remember most people don't read so 5 pages is 5 more than them, etc." As long as they come to the board you will get more material.
