>>1385>They're a panel of self-styled judges waiting for the fucking contestants.
As someone who never understood this mindset I definitely feel like a contestant sometimes. People are now strangely judgmental about everything. If I am given something new and something I dislike, I ignore the latter and pick the new 100% of the time. It seems like people would rather do the opposite now, and I don't understand how the situation could change so drastically so quickly.
But I want to say that you should stop making posts like these, anon. They are reactionary posts to the zeitgeist you described, and because of their reactionary nature they are part of it. You need to hold them back and instead, produce new things, contribute, participate. I don't know what your posting history is so maybe you're doing that already and you're just venting, but just in case, know that the best you can do for the Internet and yourself is to be one of those people who contribute. It makes no sense to leave a large website to bring its reactionary mindset on the smaller one. I see this a lot on altchans.
