So, this board has been overrun by hate, sorrow and people with no self esteem.
But it could be whatever you desire anon.
Let's talk about the possible future of this board, and what we could do to stir it in a more agreeable direction.
just say what's on your mind. everybody is accepted ITT
This board is a place where people who are depressed, angry, self loathing and pretty much are angry with the world.
We come here because this is the only place people like us can share our frustration with one another and feel like someone understands. And that's good.
This board will always be this way.
I come here to wallow in self-pity with fellow losers. You normies have every other fucking place to be optimistic and talk about your normie shit; why do you want to expel us from one of the few forums which has come to harbor such a proportion of an already scarce breed?
>This board will always be this way.
in your dream maybe. things change.
this was never the purpose of this board. just because a majority of anons overrun it with sadness does not make it a dedicated place for these anons. you could create your own place on the internet for robots/losers/non normies, etc
remember this board was not always like that. and it will change again. enjoy if while it lasts.
Nowhere did I claim that it was erected with its current condition as a goal. This board has come to be a place for robots to gather and share in robot feels; that's not gonna change until another board does come along. People who have so little in life can't afford to pass up what we've here created.
Hopefully, the /wiz/ people will eventually get tired and leave. Robots are fine, but the biggest things holding the board back are the /wiz/ people who RREEEE unironically and can't stand anyone who isn't a fat NEET like them. 95% of the "chads" who come here are fine/want to help robots.
The most ineteresting aspect of r9k is that it has no defined purpose, the only purpose it has is the one given to it by its users. So anon you get to decide what the focus of this board will be, changing it with every post you make.
I recently saw a post where a guy kept hating on a black guy, doing nothing but call him a nigger and talk about how he wanted him lynched.
Actually made me sick, and I'm not a social justice warrior or anything. I think that a lot of things on this board started off as jokes but newcomers couldn't understand the satire and took it seriously. The thread about the guy who stabbed his classmate with a mechanical pencil made me sad. That's not why I came here in the first place.
In many ways this board HAS helped me. It's helped me stop being so insecure about my height (believe it or not) simply because it's brought up and debated as compared to real life where it's a taboo subject and nobody will say it to your face. Also, calling people "faggots" sort of feels like less of an insult and more like friendly banter. There's a limit to it though, I've seen real hate seep into this board and I don't know how to stop it, or even if I can.
That pencil stabbing thread was terrible. I don't have a problem with fighting, but he stabbed him with a pencil like a bitch. And people were cheering him on genuinely it seemed.
So what? It's my opinion that the board would be better if those guys weren't here.
>really? what you just described is called self-harm
dude that's one viewpoint. I would think it's more masochistic because once you figure out how to feel some light negative or depressing emotions similarly to a kind of nostalgia its oddly mentally stimulating. lol am lit right now hope that kind of explains it better for you
also, that's why r9k is good for these type of people who are in stressing social situations to kind of vent their frustration to an accepting audience with great common ground. people will always find things in common. common hate is one of the strongest motivators for friendship and if you look at your own acquaintances in real life and your relationship to them it starts to make sense.
nevar change, /r9k/
>its oddly mentally stimulating
yeah i think you might be right. but your description is not clear enough for me
a sense of belonging? in a place so dark? well, that might be true also
i think this board has become too stiff for me. it needs some freshness. and that thread about the anon stabbing another guy like you guys said was just too much. the board is diving deeper more and more into darkness.
