>>33878982>I'm a fucking idiot because I want this site to be frozen in time
we get it, its a pile of shit now that technology is in the hands of everyone. its almost like the egalitarianism and equality pol criticises is the very lie that allowed and made inevitable the destruction of this sites aloof devil may care character.
Heres the problem with that notion, it was always, ALWAYS going to turn out this way. Look at tumblr, look at all these miniature websites built entirely for niche bullshit with nary a thought to the outdoors. theyre all overrun with it. It was never going to be possible to avoid it. As soon as the internet hit a critical mass of the population, it became worth it for big shot companies and politicians to use it to push their agendas. The real life activism of the 2007s wasnt very much targeted towards that sort of behavior as you seem to think it was. It was spontanious, and often as bad as it was good. A wild west of the internet, where a group of characters showed they where big enough that they didn't have to play by the public's rules and their dated preconceptions caused them to fail whenever they confronted us.
Do you think that was going to last forever? do you honestly believe they where going to take that loss on the nose and stay the fuck out? there is a reason america gave its citizen the 2nd ammendment, and its because the authors recognized the universal nature of the machine of authority. Even if that authority is composed of idiots, ideogauges and galvanized newfags, the machine still comes to tear it all down. And the only voice against that machine on this site has primarily been, although often pathetically, fought by /pol/ and only /pol/
There are times when I want the board to disappear. The mods make far too much money using it as political astroturfing grounds to let it go, but if it did they could be free, or maybe fatalism will ensure a new honeypot for us. Either way, fuck this copypasta
