It's no different from regular hoarding.
You are just keeping a bunch of shit you will most likely never need. There was a game show (still is?) about hoarders and holy shit, they collect so much useless junk and garbage. Data hoarding isn't nearly as bad, but for some folks it's getting close.
With all the TPP shit, I think I should start hoarding shit. Where should I start /g/ ?
The mindset is no different, but the consequences are.
Data hoarding isn't as bad provided you can afford it, the space taken physically is no where near to say hoarding furniture for example.
>thoughts on data hoarding?
My ability to collect is slower than the growth in storage per dollar. Or as I need more space I can replace what I have with the new tech for the same price I paid for the old tech and keep 100% of what I had and still add more to it.
>it's all moe shit
Of course! What else would you hoard?
Data hoarders are also usually very organized. If someone stores huge amounts of furniture in an organized manner they're a COLLECTOR, not a hoarder.
Exactly. Collecting things is fine if it's organized and doesn't interfere with the rest of your life. Having huge piles of dirty, disorganized crap everywhere in your house is pointless and harmful.
