This seems like a decent enough start to a Lovecraft story, though the middle class Ohioan protagonist is an interesting departure from the typical wealthy New Englander usually featured in his stories.

Let's hear those details on your meeting with Vozo.

Idk if I'm allowed to post the whole thing.

I can't speak to how Father Dagon's approach to secrecy applies in the internet age, but I can assure you that gtx0 has no specific policy against recalling encounters with the Deep Ones and other similar entities.

Guilty as charged, but at least you know my head can only ever be found squarely between my shoulders.

Incidentally, Google reveals the phone number you provided belongs to one of those tech support scam companies. If there was ever any doubt that these firms are run by creatures from R'lyeh there isn't anymore, but I must confess to being at a loss as to how the credit card numbers of the technologically illiterate are going to help bring the great corpse city out of the sea. I suppose it just goes to show, good help is hard to find even when you're a Great Old One.

Why? Because the title is a beacon for religious people to come here and discuss spirituality, but the nonreligious think they've staked the exclusive claim to come here to make fun of religion and confirm bias? Really gone to the dogs, huh?

I just edited out the original message because of the way Famov and that asshole in the pointless forum reacted to it since I figure they aren't even deserving of hearing about it OR the content that could come from the thread.

It did before Famov and that asshole in pointless caused me to edit it to this. But it doesn't even deserve the contribution with how half of the userbase has been lately AS I SAID.

That is indeed part of the point of editing the thread to this! Really nothing can save this site now anyway and I don't care to. And with how this site has treated me this is pretty much what it deserves. I'm not going to be nice guy all the time when I keep getting shit.

When you adopt this attitude, you think it's righteous. When people THINK I adopt this attitude, I get insults thrown at me.

Don't claim you know shit about me if you care so much about people not having "facts". I don't think this is righteous or right at all. I react out of annoyance. They're not right and I'm not right.

I never made such a claim.

But people claim they know everything about the LDS faith simply by asking ex-members with an axe to grind, and saying our evidence is mental illness because it SOUNDS like mental illness, and not because they've experienced it and can make a comparison.

You can now see how I get annoyed, right?

No, I'm just annoyed that you're taking it out on me for literally no reason! You aren't going to convince me by adding yourself to the people who like to give me shit for no reason. Where do you even get these false assumptions? Why does being "allowed" to even matter in the first place? Who would care? OF COURSE other people are allowed to be annoyed. You just keep coming up with false assumptions/accusations over and over but then when YOU get some you don't seem to think it's "allowed".

1. Since you apparently don't get it I was not genuinely calling you egotistical. That was more of a giving you a taste of YOUR OWN medicine thing. Also where did I even say I'm NOT in the first place? I mean I'm not saying I am but I'm also not saying I'm not.

To be even more detailed, there is no good way to respond to YOU telling me that I'm being all judgy and not even explaining what about when that whole conversation came about from YOU judging ME. And also you calling me ignorant baselessly about whatever it is that I was "judging" you for which you STILL won't even elaborate on! It would just keep going in loops just like it is now with you apparently hurling even more false assumptions at me like you were.

Thus I hurled one back at you. I don't think you're egotistical, I'm just giving you a taste of your own medicine since it's pretty much what you were doing to me.

Edited May 16th by KnokkelMillennium

I *never once* called you egotistical. THAT was a false assumption. You call me out for what you think are false assumptions, and then you lay one on me? I think that is precisely why this page is declining like you say. No discussion. No honest debate. Just accusations, insults, pettiness, vindictiveness and judgment. No wonder you hate this place. So now the question is, *why are you still here?* I'm still here because I have something to prove, and I always will.

I never said you did, I said you basically did the same thing. Contrary to what you may believe that does not only include calling you egotistical SPECIFICALLY

Literally what you were doing and seem to be continuing to do. LITERALLY. Are you just an elaborate troll by some off-chance?

Well. The discussions have been run into the ground but this whole thing isn't helping that ya.

So now the question is, *why are you still here?*

I don't know, I check the site when I'm not doing anything and I come here. I may have some things to prove but I already realized they won't be.

Posted May 16th by KnokkelMillennium

Also I don't have to THINK they are false assumptions when I literally see you making them and I know myself well enough to know that what you're saying about me is false. Sorry but unless you want to claim that what you said wasn't what you meant I don't see any room for debate on that.

I can deal with it when it's not making me feel worse about my day than I already was. Again though, the main reason I edited this wasn't because the site is terrible on and off, but because of how people reacted to the original post I made before I edited it to this. It was more just needing something to edit it to and I was a tad frustrated at the time.

Were it possible! It seems plenty would rather not get along with me either though.

Yeah, because it's that simple.

I have an investment in this community. Despite how fucking terrible some of the posters and infrastructure is, there is some use to be had out of all this. Posters like Jet Presto, Susurrous, Jo Nathan, Vandy, Louis and Famov make this all worthwhile.

That doesn't mean that there aren't problems. And there being problems doesn't mean that I should just drop everything from this site and leave. I want to see this site get better.

This. I just don't see it as likely to happen ever. Also of course even I'm not on that list of posters now that I've chronically been sick of how some of it is and how it's making me react.

Yet another reason seems likely unsalvageable for me because I already seem past the point of no return as a poster because I've lost the capacity to constantly be better myself and because people already sorta made up their minds about me.

Yeah, I'm just as confused as to why I'm on there as you!

Anyway, I don't know if it's just something that gets better with age (because this is definitely not my general attitude or behavior five years ago), but if there's shit on here that I hate or annoys me, I just click over to something else. I only really engage people that I want to engage with, and if I'm so sure that it is just going to be an interaction that drives me nuts, I click over to literally anything else on the internet.

It's also an anonymous internet forum, and letting things go is a pretty important skill to acquire. This is all small stakes, and if it's enough to ruin your day, maybe you should spend a little less time on here. Or just learn to become less active, and care less about responses and reactions.

I said worse, not ruin. If it ruined it as I said before I would leave. I'm just incredibly sensitive.

No it's not. If it were anonymous there would actually be no names and you would have no idea who is who and people would not have personalities worth remembering. The fact that you know people on this site to a fair extent and where they stand and what they think and have names attached to them makes it very not anonymous. If you only care about what people think irl, then it could be functionally the same to you I guess. But I have always cared far too much about both.

Er... thanks if you're talking me to me? It's not really clear.

I've addressed this at least several times now. I wouldn't mind leaving at this point but as I said I don't entirely want to or else I would be gone. Then again I've been told that I may just love pain. Which seems like a huge oversimplification especially since I don't like pain on any level that I can realize.

Which isn't a problem for me. I'm a fucking 4channer. I've had more shit thrown at me than you can imagine. It's the fact that certain elements of GT keep being shit forever. It doesn't matter if I let it go.

>This is all small stakes, and if it's enough to ruin your day, maybe you should spend a little less time on here.

I check GT for like a few minutes a few times a day, even when I'm home. It's not like I'm sitting here for hours, refreshing constantly so I can perpetuate shitstorms.

>Or just learn to become less active, and care less about responses and reactions.

I left completely for months. GT didn't stop being shit.

Technically yes, but then I'd have to stop checking pretty much every forum I actually post on.

Posted May 21st by KnokkelMillennium

And also in reference to Null's post it does not take much effort and it's not really much of a distraction to refresh here and there and *maybe* drop a post when you're not currently doing anything anyway.

The userbase is either having dick tugging contests in an effort to assert intellectual dominance or rambling in circles in a 200+ Mario Kart thread.

This is a gaming forum at the weakest level. God bless Xhin for his efforts, for those who still care to actually discuss and respond, but the most kudos to the pompous attitudes that drive all of those efforts down.

I said worse, not ruin.


Sort of irrelevant when either way, it's still having a clearly negative impact on your day or whatever. If this site makes any part of your day or life worse, cut it off, man. Who has time for shit that bums them out or makes things worse?


The fact that you know people on this site to a fair extent and where they stand and what they think and have names attached to them makes it very not anonymous.


Well, we'll disagree on this point, but to me, it's effectively the same as everyone being anonymous. I know maybe one person's real name on here, and generally where they live. Other than that, if anyone changes their screen name, I probably wouldn't know who it was until a few posts if there is a consistent style or they say something specific to that other name. A bunch of picture-less random user names doesn't make someone any less anonymous to me. And sure, I get that there are relationships that get cultivated online - I've sent DVDs to Jo Nathan, and occasionally, I'll post something in Entertainment because I actively think, "Oh, I bet Orion would be interested in this thing," - but more or less, I don't really know anyone. You guys probably know me a fair amount based on my postings, but I dunno, you guys don't really know me. You know a small fragment based on what I choose to post here. For me, that makes it hard to take anything particularly personally if someone calls me a name or whatever. Or if I'm not being listened to, sure, it's annoying, but who cares? If something bums me out, I...do literally anything else. Play a video game, go for a run, do some writing or reading. I'm generally not thinking about this forum when I'm not on here. To me, that makes it functionally the same thing as anonymous. I don't know any of you personally. I get that internet interactions are valid and are not just "fake" while in person interactions are "real," but you're interacting with fragments.



I left completely for months. GT didn't stop being shit.


My point is more about how if this site is shit and you hate it and it's making your day worse, you have complete agency over your life and internet habits and can stop coming. Would I prefer that the toxicity on the internet be managed and handled effectively? Absolutely. I would like this place to be welcoming and friendly (as much as an internet forum can be). But if it's not getting better and it's negatively impacting your day, at some point you need to just cut it out from your life. I mean, was your life better or worse when you left for a few months because it was shit? I'm thinking more about your life than a random internet forum.

Jet, you keep adding on the "and ruining your day" thing like this site actually has some kind of effect on my real life and I'm just fucking myself repeatedly by coming here. The fact is, I just have a negative opinion of it. I would appreciate it if you stopped making assumptions about shit like you're trying to make me look like some autistic faggot that's going to kill themselves over a hole-in-the-wall internet gaming forum.

Having a negative opinion of something and wanting it changed doesn't mean I'm having a mental breakdown over here.

Why is it so hard to accept criticism? Or, if I'm not writing well enough for it to be called criticism, why is it so hard to accept that someone has a negative opinion without making implications like that in return?

Edited May 29th by nullfather

Oh, "criticism?" Is that what the kids are calling it these days? I thought that was just flat-out griping, complaining and moaning. There's a forum for that on this site. It's not this one, though.
