I've been on this site for some years, and in this board since it's inception. However lately, say in the past 6 months to 1 year, there has been increasing levels of negativism. Not without reason, mind you, but it makes me wonder. Why? Why there's so much grief and anguish? Look at the threads today. Makes even the most golly gee wizz optimistic guy into a depressive husk.
On a more serious note: Society is polarizing in many ways. So we see more and stronger negativity in these parts of the interwebz these days.
Uh, incase you haven't peeked from under your rock... we're in a global depression.

my man I've on Jow Forums for over a decade and I'd still consider myself a newfag and even I can tell you that the site turned to shit in the early-mid 2010s.
The whole poopoo peepee tendies pepe the frog thing started off as an ironic joke. We were making fun of autistic retards. The joke kept on going but then newfags didn't see any irony in it because they were the kind of people we made fun of, then they were tricked into right-wing beliefs via shit like gamer gate and that Donald Trump would make anime real or whatever.
Basically, when the site was "lulz" it was fine, when it turned to "kek" it became nothing but crybaby incels that got brainwashed into politics.

Case in point, this pic. Only 5 years old and the reaction of course was to laugh at the fat idiot who was angry at women.
If someone posted the same pic in 2019 the reponses would be like
>based and red pilled >ROASTIES BTFO >Fuckin Chad stealing all the girls reeeeeee! >OP you seem cool do you have discord >females only like badboys, OP speaks truth and is based and red pilled and praise kek
okay well definitely post the picture you idiot, that would help.
>Is this /b/? Isn't it? Why else would be you screeching about reddit and normies and dumb shit?
Because you faggots keep spouting the incel buzzword
Which means you're a leftist retard from reddit
So you can throw "reddit" around at every post but it's definitely not okay when someone calls you an incel?
I wasn't the one that called you an incel, but you do sound like one.
Incel is a meaningless buzzword
Nothing changed, OP. It was always like this. I guess people had to improvise with a larger vocabulary in the past (chad, stacy, incel weren't used). The overall message of your average post was exactly the same, though.
>However lately, say in the past 6 months to 1 year, there has been increasing levels of negativism You're a blind nigger if you think this place has ever been something else besides a circlejerk for social outcasts, edgelords, and delinquents. Been here since 08 and nothing about the general cynicism of this place has changed a bit.
You mean to tell me the place that used to be used in connection with trafficking massive amounts of cheese pizza and has convinced numerous people to commit suicide feels more negative "now"??? Fucking kek. Jow Forums really is the most newfag heavy board isn't it?
>Been here since 08 >Fucking kek >kek
sounds like you made a type and wrote 08 instead of 18
calling people you don't agree with "redditor" is also an empty buzzword. Same with "normie" and whatever else, those aren't even insults.
Fuck off idiot , topkek was a good meme. It's been like 8 years already , get over it.
>It's an empty buzzword No, it means you're an outside who doesn't understand the original appeal of this place
Sorry to hear infinitychan isn’t even around anymore for you to post your manifesto
Redditors are too low IQ to understand
>if i spam kek ill fit in
Because Jow Forums is full with normalfags, underage discord trannies and depressed retards, none of which deserve anything good.
