So I've been lurking on this board for about a month now. It started innocently enough, but now it's gotten to the point where I spend like five or six hours a day here. It's out of control. What can I say, I'm home for the summer, I have no life, I have nothing better to do. It's sad. Anyway, I wanted to post some general impressions of LSD.
red.-- You intimidate me, and all I'm doing is reading your posts on an internet message board. You're razor sharp, (self reportedly) gorgeous, and you actually seem nice. Maybe if I'm really good in this life I'll get to be you in my next life.
halfie-- You seem really really sweet, if somewhat wet behind the ears. I have to confess that I have a slight crush on you.
margee, Miss P, pinkybella-- If anyone can seem 'genuine' on a message board, you three pull it off. Much respect.
Googler-- You're probably an ok guy, but why so angry? What did the liberals ever do to you?
lily-- You're definitely a smart cookie, but you're a know-it-all. You speak with equal confidence about matters you know nothing about (motherhood?) and matters you do know about. You could stand to tone down your argumentative style.
bluebwhatever-- Your shtick gets annoying after a while. When a guy hits on every woman in sight in real life, one suspects he is insecure. When the same thing happens in cyberspace, this suspicion is only stronger.
I believe angry personal attacks on internet message boards are colloquially known as "flame wars." I can't think of a more frusturating or pointless activity. In real life, it is possible to win an angry verbal confrontation, because one of the parties will be quicker on his feet, or more confident, or have a more compelling physical presence than the other. The other party will get intimidated and back down. On the internet, people have infinite time to think of clever responses, confidence doesn't matter, and nobody has a physical presence. For these reasons, angry arguments on the internet are always going to be stalemated. Nobody can win.
That said, flame wars are lots of fun to read.
3.Sex threads on the off-topic board
These are just bizarre. Trying to prove to people you've never met in person that you're sexy and you're getting some is juvenile. On this particular board, it also seems politically risky. These people are your future colleagues. Some of them are your future classmates. When they actually do meet you, they will know how old you were when you lost your virginity, how many partners you've had, and what your favorite position is. Is it just me, or will this be embarassing?
That said, sex threads are lots of fun to read.
That's all folks.
