What are you tempted to do?
>tfw I am tempted to start tripfagging
Recognition mostly. And in some cases, to fulfill the need for singularity in your posts amongst an entire board of undifferentiated anonymous posts. It's like how people put OP in their posts after starting a thread, except on a whole new level. In this case, tripfagging is acceptable when done sparingly and appropriately. Actually, I believe that's the actual purpose for using trips.
I am plagued with sexually motivated urges to commit homicide and necrophilia every single day, and resisting it is so difficult the stress is causing me severe health problems. I have a vague idea of why I get these intrusive thoughts and urges, but it really doesn't explain why, years and years later, I still feel as strongly (if not more) inclined to act on it than I did when I was an edgy teenager and didn't understand anything.
no, assfaggot, the purpose of trips is to distinguish someone when an identity is necessary given the content of their posts, to distinguish them from other people who may try to imitate them. This almost always falls onto an OP of a thread who has a unique position or perspective who is answering questions people pose to them about their position or perspective. Rarely it will apply to someone who enters a thread who has a very interesting position and then wants to continue a related conversation with other people while maintaining that they are the one making their posts.
IT IS NOT FOR ATTENTION-SEEKING
IT IS NOT TO DISTINGUISH YOUR POSTS BECAUSE YOU WANT TO BE ON A FORUM WITH POST COUNTS AND A POST HISTORY
GET THE FUCK OFF OF MY FUCKING BOARD YOU CANCEROUS PIECE OF SHIT
do it, one day you will make it on the top famous list

But that's pretty much what I said though. Maybe "singularity" wasn't the correct term. But anyways there are some cases in which someone can just pop in a thread with a trip and it's totally acceptable. Like recurring threads with a dedicated topic. But like I said, this needs to be done sparingly and appropriately. And sometimes other people will ask that you use a trip so that they may follow your posts. Hence "to fulfill a need for singularity". But the latter reason isn't really justifiable though since it's just tripfagging to anyone who didn't request for you to use trips.
Do it, stay a low level one though. You don't want the attention that comes from being a major one. If you're a low level tripfag, you get all the advantages without any of the problems.
a while back i was really tempted to suck a dick
and also i want to get pegged by a girl
and fuck a big fat chick
always tempted to just drop my beliefs and live a bland, moronic normie life, fitting in with everyone.. but i don't think i could do it. just compromise my identity like that...
I've had a trip for around 7 years, I just rarely put it on because it rarely has proper use also what the fuck kind of pictures would I use for everyone, none of those trips ever self-posted
>browsing non-anonymous websites
>want to be anonymous
>don't want to be anonymous
The struggle is real. It's even harder on real anonymous boards like /r9k/. At least on /pol/ there's flags and IDs
the struggle is really real when no one knows who you are as you trip, they be like you're not anonymous! but they still don't know shit, it's like you are all namefags posting with name anonymous
I'm tempted to start daydreaming about falling in love with cute animu girls again.
That image was made by a worthless self-important newtrip called euphoria. He just makes shitty femanon feels bait threads and think its hilarious. I really do miss seagullbro
playing the violin, drawing really violent pictures, avoiding my family, spending time with friends doing things that heavily distract me, working hard, and constantly, CONSTANTLY reminding myself that if I ever act on it my life will be over, and everything that I've worked so hard to have will amount to nothing.
it hurts so much to know that 99.99% of people don't have to deal with anything like this and I'm playing life on nightmare mode without anything to show for it. no one is going to congratulate me for not killing anyone today, no one is going to show any appreciation for me doing everything I can to restrain myself. it's horrible.
