i feel like i missed out.

Liberal agenda became more popular. Post Regan years lead to a decent from American pride and responsibility towards socialist disdain towards our country and an almost narcissistic need for pushing off responsibility while gaining a sense of deserving commodities.

No need to worry though, like fashion, morality is cyclical and will return once everyone has had enough of everyone elses shit. Just sit back, bite your teeth and bare through it. If it's too much for you, there are small towns that still exhibit the true American ideals.

Pretty much this. Can you believe gaymergaters -- your typical self-absorbed, self-entitled normalfag -- thought 4chan was their personal army?

Not wanting to derail the thread before it even takes off, but SJWs are one of the worst things to happen to the internet.

Ahh, 'murrica.

You being troll bait is your own problem.

thats...kinda true.
now if you want to find something you just do a simple search.
no more webrings
no more 'surfing' unless you count stumble
no more random chat rooms from AIM
no dial up, Its always on, ever present. there is nothing special about it anymore.
its like when a band sells out, or you finally tire of sex with your gf, it just loses something...

It got popular and normal people had no barrier of entry anymore.

Before, you kind of had to have some interest in how the Web worked.

Now, every 12 year old goes on the Internet because they are bored.

The best thing to do with SJW'ers is completely ignore them.

Make them feel like they are screaming into the void by not acknowledging they ever posted anything.

Let them talk to themselves until they end up in a permanent psychosis, they see a doctor, and are prescribed heavy meds that has them drool into their pillow in a docile matter.

Ignoring SJWs sure did work.

That's why they make thousands of dollars, give lectures, and wind up on the news.

Fuck you.

We made a secret clubhouse, then everyone just let themselves in.

We tried to harness nuclear energy and we wound up making a bomb.

cmon guys, stop derailing and start thinking of what went wrong

My uncle received two visits from the FBI in the early 90s due to his bbs posts.

He was "brother blue."

I guess he still is but he is homeless now.

At the time he was an employed "software engineer" that spent his time writing elaborate trolls. He wrote an "electronic masturbation guide" that claimed you could use an speaker or tv to experience extreme pleasure. Also claimed to be aware of the US government keeping a bunch of shit secret.

Anyways, point is I don't think you have an accurate view of the 90s.

Go read about confirmation bias.

Remove selfiebook and all messaging apps ever, then the normies will no longer have a reason to flood the internet.

Yep, so true. Normal people destroyed the Internet because they are fucking cluesless about technology and beg to be frauded. That's when the criminals came and fucked up the Internet completely. Internet Explorer was the ultimate cancer in early 2000.

Fuck them. Let's all switch to gopher.
