>>
>>25882482
You could probably extend that as far as 2010. That to me is the year when forum culture was beyond saving and social media came to the forefront. Yeah in the mid-2000s there was MySpace (Bebo here if you're British/Irish) but it wasn't ubiquitous and the centre of the internet. Since Facebook and Twitter have dominated, the internet had become a tool for normalfags to contact people they know from real life when they're not beside each other. The internet was better when people like us would participate in communities centered around whatever interest we had and would meet strangers rather than talking shit with IRL friends. I blame smartphones senpai

>>25883719
Why is the date format changed then? How are we supposed to know there's a specific year to attribute this mystical "9/11" to? In the future can I just throw around "1"19" and they'll know I'm referring to 2016?

Is it a dating or format rule? I'm genuinely curious, but given people's hostile reactions, it must be an elementary level mistake.

I still decorate like it's the 90's and bought an old panasonic. Can't really let go.

It was after 9/11, whoever was behind that really intended the world fall slowly into social turmoil. Things started to show signs of slow death after 2006. Irredeemable by 2012.

Internet is now populated by normal people, with their ruthless hedonism and singleminded nature, the groupthink etc and an internet that caters to that as a business model, encouraging it at the same time, and now huge businesses exist to create fake hype and shit stirr politically.

All the internet used to be was hobby pages and personal experiments, and a ton of 90's kids fucking around on a frontier.

So many things are ruined. Games go by culture of efficiently picking them clean and then shitting all over them instead of creatively enjoying them. People just want to talk drama about people like they did in real life, over soap operas and shit.

People don't want to trade shady VHS tapes anymore with foreign movies on them, they just want to compile listings of which one is objectively the best or patrician.

And fucking memes. People are so devoid of personality now that you are actually able to fucking download one and just spout the same bullshit everywhere for easy social access, even though it means nothing, they make nothing original between them.
>>
>>25883898

9/11 refers to the terrorist attack on the WTC in 2001. The 11 doesn't refer to the year, it refers to the date of the month. The 9 refers to the month itself, which is September.

anyone remember memes/video clips/etc. being propagated over email instead of social media?

I remember my dad would be emailed jokes and stuff from coworkers and he'd show them to me

>>25883660

9/11 means Sept. 11th 2001

>>25883977
Oh ok. So is it like a central holiday or something that the date is used as a reference to like...

>"The weather started getting cold around Christmas."

Or

>"I'll probably take the boat out on the lake Labor day weekend."

So do people say stuff like "There are great Steam sales around 9/11." or are people just fascinated by some random morbid event.

I mean come on. If I had a nickel every time I've seen a video of some fucker getting his 'ead blown off I'd have a pretty hefty wallet. Should I make a holiday about that shit? Fuck no.
>>
>>25884001
I've figured it out now, but still...why the dating?

People don't call Christmas 12/25. Why not just say, like New Jersey Terrorist attacks?

Do people refer to every fucking event throughout history as it's date? No. So what's the big deal.
