Lurkers: post in this thread.
Why don't you post? There's so many shitposters on this site and you don't have an internet identity to worry about. I think moot said about half the people that browse this place lurk. Don't be shy. What's the worst thing that could happen?
>What's the worst thing that could happen?
They say gay shit and use emoticons. Learn how boards operate then contribute. If you earn a (You), you're doing something right at least.
thicksnoww on instagram. She's pregnant now at 18/19. Waste of fucking life.
Same applies for me, there's always something funny coming out of here sooner or later, the problem is that most of the people here are failed degenerates, so this board appeals to human beasts that seek the lowest of desires,
and this is mostly the reason i don't post often, except when some anon needs correction or genuinely seeks guidance.
>What's the worst thing that could happen?
I accidentally knock up a fembot
I used to post, back before moot took the board away for awhile. I mostly stopped posting because I became a semi-normie, and don't often have much to add. I don't know why, but I come back every day.
the worst thing that could happen is having to conduct a conversation with one of you. you are tedious, difficult, pointless, obnoxious, arrogant, ignorant, smug, self-pitying, naively cynical, adolescent and, for all of this, edgy.
Its fun to look at people's different opinions on things I guess...
Also, you guys would consider me a normie, I choose not to post because there are plenty of places for people like me to talk to like minded people on the internet, but not too many places for people like you, so I hold it in out of respect for you guys.
Also, this was my first post on 4chan! ^u^
Underage, if a girl, leave this place before it's too late, stop using internet for communication with strangers, don't use dating apps and social networks.
Doing this will make you safer from degeneration, if your mind is not strong enough to resist it (something i've yet to see from a female); you will have higher chanses at becoming marriage tier.
I really dont have much to say, and i feel like my stories wont get that much attention so thier not worth posting.
Yeah don't post here because of degeneracy, but try out the other non-degenerate boards. They will be less keen on the non-ironic emoticons, but you'll build some sort of confidence and it's pretty fun desu
Not really afraid, there is just no reason to post, as you already mentioned threads made shitposters and Normals aren't interesting to me.
>only 2 or 5 threads aren't being hidden by me.
>I also can't really think of anything to discuss off the bat.
It's not like you have to type the anything clever. Most discussion shouldn't be related to sensitivity unless you start a dumb internet fight
I only lurk here when I'm bored.
This place is normalfag central. It really is. The unironic "fembots feels thread"s, the bragposters, the failed normies, it's basically just /soc/ but with poser faggots who think they're "nurdy introverted and weird xD" because they didn't get to fuck Stacy this month.
I'm even willing to bet that there are barely any non-normies here anymore. It's a complete shithole.
That's literally impossible.
/r9k/ was created in 2009.
Rule one of observation: don't interact with what you're observing. If someone was looking at a playground for sp. ed kids (read: 4chan) to see how their society worked, he wouldn't try to integrate himself with them.
I don't have anything interesting to say, I'm planning my suicide soon, and the reasons is the standard /r9k/ mix of very bad looks and anxiety attacks, I don't even have stories about how women rejected me because I never tried to approach one, I don't talk to anyone in real life, I exist only on the internet
I have never posted on this website. However, after several years of lurking, I have surmised that nearly everyone that posts here is a troll. Despite the obvious shitposting, many of the responders are genuine faggots and autistics. I do see the need for a board like this. It provides a medium for society's outcasts and degenerates to congregate in a poor attempt of understanding their shortcomings. I often find solace in browsing this board and will continue to do so.
and I quote from Wizardchan: Wizardchan is a Japanese-inspired image-based forum (imageboard) for male virgins to share their thoughts and discuss their interests and lifestyle as a virgin. The name of our website is inspired by the wizard meme, which refers to someone who has maintained his virginity past the age of 30. In contrast to other imageboards, Wizardchan is dedicated exclusively to people who have no sexual experience and may be NEET or hikikomori. Please read the rules before posting.
I have nothing important to add to the conversation. I know my thoughts are not unique so my viewpoint is either already posted or will be posted. Kinda like real life.
How about you stop browsing this shitty website never come back? If you want to read something, just buy some books, this place is making you addicted, everytime you hit F5, you're rewarding your brain with a hit of dopamin.
Just quit this stupid place and try to do something productive with your life, Anon.
/VG/ gives me comedy specialized towards the games I play. Sifting through the useless threads on /r9k/ can reveal some really smart people, and new viewpoints on humanity and life. The world is boring and the internet is its only saving grace. This screen in front of me has fed my curiosity and expanded my knowledge far better than if I'd just learned from whatever life gave me as a lower middle class citizen in suburban America. I have no reason to leave this website or the internet in general.
i feel the same way mostly because i browse /x/, /r9k/, /scv/ and /brit/. if i respond it's going to be directed at a person who is either insane, delusional or baiting.
if i do post, it's usually a one sentence or less shitpost.
I feel like I don't have anything to contribute to the discussion. That, and I'm basically a chad and it's hard for me to relate to the robots. The reason I like to go on this board because I enjoy looking at other people's ways of life, whether is be bad or good.
Basically because I don't want to get called a fag.
Fuck maybe you guys are right, maybe browsing /r9k/ is turning me into a robot.
How do I get out? Is it too late to escape?
I already sweat like a pig while in social situations and the only reason people talk to me is because I can laugh at myself and am tall and attractive, but can I be a robot with the body of a chad?
I typically enter threads really late and to make matters worse I open a shit ton of threads i'm interested in in new tabs. Usually by the time I get to the bottom of threads they've been totally derailed. This almost always happens in depression threads, which sucks because I enjoy swapping stories with other robots that have been in mental institutions and have different mental habits to distract themselves and get by day to day.
>fembots don't exist!!11!!
fuck this place
I used to be autistic but now I'm a bartender with a petite girlfriend and a good job lined up when I graduate in May. I browse here because it's funny and I feel like I can relate to some of you.
I just wanted to look at better memes than there were on reddit. I'm so autistic I thought /r9k/ was the meme board when I first heard about it.
I want off this ride, I don't want to be a NEET, but now this board has made me not want to be a wagecuck. Maybe I should just kill myself like the faggot I am.
Being a faggot and fucking men's assholes.
Usually waxed and bleached to make them more effeminate.
The joke is that it's not gay, it's a pussy. Just a boipussy. At least that's how I interpret it.
I have a GF, though probably for not much longer.
If I tried to talk about any GF feels (her wanting to see other people, etc) I'd be shouted out as a normie.
Even though I feel more alone and emotionally stunted than ever before, and I'm about to be stuck here while my GF breaks up with me to go to college and 'experiment' with other guys, you guys wouldn't talk to me. It's a very exclusive 'non-normie club' you guys have here. so I'll continue lurking
Inb4 underage b&, I'm 27 and she's 20
I read posts and think to myself, "This doesn't need my reply" so I stop typing and close the thread. I think the only times I post are when I have specific information on a topic that is unlikely to be provided by another anon; see: certain series, situations, or instructions. So I only post to help other anons rather than to incite responses or whatever else.
But I always like to attach a nice image with my post.
I'm not female, but if I was in your boat I would try to have fun with it. Like pretend you are a secret agent infiltrating some secret society.
At least that's how I feel If I were to make a tumblr. Pretend to be female and make girly posts for a long time, get lot's of followers and make friends. They get to know me really well and we have inside jokes and exchange those shitty tumblr gifs. Then down the line reveal I've been a guy all along and see how they react.
Although you can't really do that here because the only way to correlate posts is to be a tripfag. I don't mind fembots, but tripfags are the worst.
I lurk everywhere. I'm like a leech: consuming and never contributing.
But in all honesty, I just like watching people, reading about their interactions and trying to understand why things play out the way they do. I want to be invisible and able to teleport so that I can personally watch everyone, but never interfer.
Maybe I'm edgy and mental.
Ohmightyundertalesociallyawkwardcelibatenoirlfriendsdutchguy let me be
No, I can be mean in certain circumstances. I absolutely hate femanon camwhores (derail threads), Doj attacking manchildren (derail threads when they can just be ignored), pedos, men watching moeshit/lolicon, transgenders (goto lgbt trannygenerals), people breaking trust, affairs/cheating, and hypocrites.
I hate camwhores in general.
This doesn't even happen often when I'm posting. At least you can solace in knowing that the current board culture centers around being a manchild, and therefore the derailments aren't that bad.
Both have mental issues. I dislike them depending on whether they suppress their mental issues or indulge in them as if they're normal.
Just another breed of manchild.
>people breaking trust, affairs/cheating, and hypocrites.
These are commendable values to live by, and honestly should be every person's mindset. Sadly, that's not always the case.
At least you have your values written down solidly. Most people are so egoistical that they just adopt a completely neutral, plantlike state of mind.
>This doesn't even happen often when I'm posting
Happens all the time over the months of you calling out manchildren. You get into pointless arguments that leads to no one changing their mind. At least, me reposting femanon camwhores discourages future camwhoring and thread derailment by thirsty boys. You also made that mystery appreciation thread when you know she was in a terrible state of mind and would not have appreciated that image being posted. You're a terrible person.
i really wanna make friends, but everyone who adds me on steam hates me and i feel bad. i often post to help someone find sauce. its something im very good at, since im a huge stalker.
I don't hate women/Jews/black people enough to post here.
I am not white, which rustles some robots. Although, as a kid (around 2004 was my first visit?) I remember this site being more about anime, games, and being an outsider. Not complaining about cucks/niggers/womyns/degenerancy all fucking day and night. Maybe I was just young and didn't see what I didn't understand.
Honestly, I stopped being a robot years ago. I am just another normie with a normie life now. I come here for schadenfreude and laughs. I don't belong here anymore.
Never really got out of the "lurk more, newfag" phase.
Remember when the point of the robot was to foster actual originality? Remember when arcanine was for gentlemen, and people used flowery language instead of just adding 'bloxbloxbloxx' or 'desu desu senpai' or 'this comment is so original' to everything?
Now, lurking is the true gentleman's sport, because the board has evolved into a bizarre, car-accident-esque entity that we can't bring ourselves to look away from, yet dare not go near. Why post when you can passively gaze through the two-way mirror at the absurd lives of this board's current inhabitants instead?
It's like watching a never-ending documentary on this fringe lifestyle that may or may not actually exist. And it's free. It's interesting in its own way. I wouldn't necessarily call it "godawful", either. I know my comparison connoted as such, but that doesn't capture the entire spirit of it.
I just feel that what this board has become isn't really something I can participate in as much as it is something I can enjoy. I came for what it was then and stayed for whatever it is now. Presently, I'll go back to lurking for another few years...
I fully understand where you're coming from, then. It's more or less my reason for posting, except I like to be a part of said never-ending documentary to experience it firsthand. The only difference between myself and the barely legal Redditor crosssite posters, is that I actually have a solid state of mind which can't really be influenced and poisoned by this board, which seems to happen pretty often to people indulging in similar behavior.
Think of it as a movie versus a videogame.
Oh no someone saw it and replied.
Okay, well I won't delete this post then.
It's a completely useless post taking up space and not contributing anything and perhaps someone will make fun of it but for you I won't delete it.
>Why don't you post?
This is my first post in 3-4 years. I can't really give a reason to why i don't post anymore but i've noticed that the longer anons are on here the less and less they post.
I can't write or speak in english very well
And i can't find myself any kind of community even on the intenet.
And on this shipboard there is rarely any interesting thread anyway
/r9k/ is my default place the internet to hang out, but I'm usually too impatient to post and then wait for a reply etc. etc. Also I'm only ever on here for like 30 mins at a time, so I don't see the point in contributing.
Also anyone who has spent enough time on here knows that the discussions are just re-cyclings of the same topics that have been making the rounds here for the past 5 years.
I've lurked for years on and off, recently started to post a bit on a few boards, hopefully my input is making threads better, im sure if there were more posters like me who engage with the topics or be originally humorous rather that the fucking fags that just shitpost with spiderman and banana bollocks then it would be a better place.
Then again i guess that we all accept what this place is and take the good with the bad.
One thing I would like to say though is that even through anonymity and the insults and hatred, this place has a really good sense of community. Some of you guys are alright.
I don't have anything interesting to say. Just babbys-first-existential-crisis tier stuff.
>tfw free will doesn't exist
>tfw you can't change your retarded and wasted past
>tfw you cannot be happy
>tfw you are completely incompetent
why do you want to know?
I like bane for originality
'ey buddy, this'll be yer last post as well. Beat it.
>Those posts that never got replies
>A lurker probably got a chuckle out of them
I have read through many threads without saying a single word. Even if you don't get replies, chances are a lurker read what you posted and had his own ideas about it.
I used to try to post only seldomly when I would think that what I said would be funny enough to get replies or someone would (dis)agree and initiate a sub-discussion within a thread. It never really happened and I got jaded.
Then recently I realized how many posts would make me laugh or give me insight yet had no replies themselves.
Now I just post if ever it strikes my mood and don't bother to follow up. Not because I've matured beyond needing affirmation or validation but just because this place needs hopefully good but usually shit content. That's what we're doing. That's why we're here. I don't need to bring my ego and it feels better that way.
Now I'm wondering why people didn't make it look like the inside of the rope is actually a vagina opening, and it means upon death you'll be birthed again, perpetuating the cycle of life and sorrow.
I just want to beat the shit out of OP desu but hes probably stronger than me
the mod sticky intimidates me.
im afraid of /r9k/
but fuck it im posting
Occasional poster, mostly lurker here.
>So much information, constantly updated, just refresh and more of that lurking fix, there is no real urge or time to post.
>Slow typer and diligently check for typos as simple words spelt incorrectly or mistakenly typed as other words causes massive cringe/anxiety.
>Cannot be arsed getting into serious lengthy discussions, especially if controversial. If I am going to do it I'm going to do it properly and can't be arsed refuting a horde of people who don't know their shit who will try to win a war of attrition through overposting/spam/ad hominem/straw-manning.
>So in other words, I am not one of those hit and run shit-posters, who gets his jollies off baiting people.
>While memes can be amusing, entertaining and interesting from a cultural viewpoint posting them just feels too forced (think this might be a bit of aspergers, I can be rigid in my self-expression).
I will sometimes add a lil bit to discussion, such as here but seriously more than ten posts a night is just exhausting. The only exception to this rule is music recs/dumps threads where you can just post links and/or give people the thumbs up for their taste.
Cause it's pointless. Robots are gonna robot. Too many trolls or idiots to have a decent discussion. Every time I post there's either someone bullshitting me or there's no comment/answer. I used to hang out some at /soc/ years ago, before it was 95% dick threads. Those were the days.
Hello I am typing in the comment box is this thing on
/r9k/ has always been one of those boards where you have to hit catalog and really sift through to find good stuff. Whatever else is going on with the "culture" of the board, its random nature means there is a glimmer of quality or just plain OC here and there.
The problem is there's such a huuuuuge gap between thinking something and actually typing it out, let alone sourcing, editing or captioning images into OC. The other problem, or maybe the answer, is there's no point to posting. Nobody posts for personal glory (with the obvious exception of tripfags who I swear all have NPD) but for the common good of the 'chan. It's actually a testament to the charity of human beings that we have posts of any quality on any board, cause it's all just people giving up their time for a big blowhole of shit talkery.
For me posting feels like shouting into the amps at a rock concert. Easier to just sit back and listen.
Also >engaging anonymous people on the internet in argument
I learned not to do that a long time before 4chan sons
Because I have 9 hours a day to kill at work and there is a constant stream of content.
