I don't know how you mean? I'm going to blurt out things here
I've always kind of been a failure and and somewhat isolated for odd reasons
this made me geeky and socially retarded so I felt kind of lonely and weird
most of my family is dead including my father so I didn't really have anyone to talk to or relate to
the things I'm interested in were not normal but on 4chan they are
so over the years and such if I was feeling down I could always read on about 4chan and kind of think "well other people are like me or in the same situation and they're ok" but it doesn't really help forever

/jp/ should not be my blog I'm sorry for this

It made me realize the wrongs in myself, trying to humor people when in reality I prefer to be alone.

If anything, it made me feel better rather than demeaning me.

In hindsight, it was a change for the better personally. No social-interaction, no worries.

All that's being said is that posts on 4chan tend to be, well, mean and that it's reflective of a hive mentality. That can't be denied no matter how much you spice your reply with insults. Please, if you put as much thought into your negativity as you did meaningful replies, quality posts might start appearing more often. I'm not pinning it on you alone though, believe me.

the only things I don't like about 4chan are pretty recent things
the massive influx of shitposting on boards I go to and the off topicness is a little upsetting but it's nothing I can't ignore

you're supposed to just ignore shitty threads or post because they will just go away if you do
since it was like that when I first showed up I've just kind of got used to it
report & hide, only post in thread that are worth posting in

eventually things evolved into spamming "lurk more" now it kind of evolved into spamming opinions and "ironic" shitposting which only bump the threads up and is bad for everyone

So it's getting worse in that more people are just sitting back while crap comes up. But when you post on the good and ignore the bad, quality posts become based on how often good threads come up, meaning that you're always gambling on people coming up with and posting on nice topics, doesn't it?

pretty much
the problem is there's always more people shitposting at a faster rate killing "quality" threads than quality threads/posts/posters
I think a possible solution to this problem is to change the sage feature
make all posts not bump by default so someone has to make an effort to bump a thread
because most people don't understand they're making it worse by posting

this will not happen and probably shouldn't though

So there's enough to keep you interested. But like the gladiator fights (good God, I'm definitely going on /a/ to check this out later) anime and music get boring eventually. What happens then, considering that you already kick back and watch? (I don't mean that in a bad way)
>>9209867
So this mental state of yours strengthens your will to become an engineer. Damn, I know lots of apathetics, but they always get caught at the futility in everything. You're absolutely serious about making a robo maid?

I used to go on /adv a lot, but contrary to your deduction, I main lovely little /jp. I'd like to think it's because more interesting threads and posts come up during my browsing time (midnight onwards), making me more enthusiastic about posting.
And I'm replying to everything just because I'm interested in understanding what everyone's thinking. People post since they're interested, and it's a waste of that interest if I don't keep provoking it (in the best way possible). More interesting things in the world than studying Psych.
Anyway, I always think, "Noone wants to be so negative all the time, so why does it happen?" and decided to start the board.

It's late, and sleep deprivation doesn't have me in top form, but I'll say what I can. Beauty is an objective concept, everyone knows what beauty is and what they find to be beautiful personally. But what is beautiful is subjective. It's funny. But I find many things beautiful. I think it's beautiful how sound waves can become shaped into something so specific and something beautiful. Something so basic, so simple. That the world allows for this to happen is beautiful to me. I think it's beautiful that people out there are able to make beautiful things. I think it's beautiful that the universe allows for beautiful things to be created. I find it beautiful that I am able to find things beautiful, and that the things I find beautiful are able to create me, and define who I am, because what I find beautiful is ultimately unique to me.
