A long haul flight from wherever you are.
Maybe I'm an outlier, but I've been diagnosed with all kinds of crazy crap. I told my doctors to shove it and just started working on myself. I've had friends on meds and all they ever do is whine about life.

I have chemical imbalances : exercise, nutrition, and finding new passions still helps. I have my off days but unless you're seriously off your rocker, I'd always advise going for an alternative to medication. Shit can be so bad for your kidneys, etc

You need to address the problem at its root. One way or the other
I had a period of depression, I didn't know why I was feeling bad until a friend said she recognized the symptoms. So I went to the doctors, got some pills and the moment I felt normal again I got the fuck off them quick. I've never had any issues since, I've got a feeling for some of those people that they use the pills as a crutch and let the illness be their whole identity.

Also the fact that the US is a for profit medical system so therapists are incentivized to keep up their "Client" base.

Most of those people would be better off getting a dog.

You nailed it dude. People are always trying to apply more and more labels for themselves. It's more excuses. I remember this shrink was straight up asking me, "when you go to sleep at night do you have thoughts where everyone is out to get you?"

Trying to prescribe me crap for paranoia like I belonged in a straitjacket, lol get bent.

I'm happier now than I've been in years. I just hustled. People dont have a sense of purpose so they get depressed and then that depression becomes their purpose. People need purpose and structure. It's super important for me at least. I'm all over the place lol

How about grow a pair?

Suicidal people are the worst. Yes life kinda sucks. Were all going through some shit, no matter what side of the fence you're on. Read a book, pet your dog, watch some feet JOI videos, lift weights, go sing a song

Like people are given this amazing gift of life and all they can do is whine about it on a forum. Shut the fuck up
People that allude to suicide but don't do it are the worst.
People that have suicidal thoughts and see the proper help or reach out to friends, family, anyone without making it an epic drama are not the worst and I hope they get the help they need.

The major difference is that the suicides that I know of in my life or the people that attempted or thought about attempting to take their lives never went to a message board or blogged about it.

Depression is no joke, and while you can't completely eliminate it, you can definitely look to avoid the worst accelerants of the condition.

Era is just such a massive well of misery and despair I'm not surprised it has a daily suicide thread. Is there anything that the general user base there gets any enjoyment from? Aside from maybe sniping at others who dare to voice opinions outside their own? What a miserable existence.

If that's your daily hangout, and you're predisposed to depression, you don't stand a chance. Sadly a lot of Era users seem to enjoy wallowing in it, and can't, or won't, leave.

It seems that for many if them, it's the only sense of community they have, especially as so many of them seem to have turned their backs on family and friends for not sharing their progressive views.

Why does it seem like everyone on Resetera wants to kill themselves? There’s at least a half dozen suicide threads a week.

Certain dipshit members never shutting the hell up about trans this trans that, muh rights, a whole post dedicated to this shit in the OT isn't enough to raise awareness apparently. Virtue signal harder you clowns.

Another predictable clown thread. Lots of vibrant “discussion” of course. Range of permitted posts falls between “FUCK CDPR” and “CDPR IS TRANSPHOBIC SCUM”. Anything else gets a ban.

Here comes the inevitable rush of lurkers coming to look at this topic again,

Welcome reelurkers to the actual documented proof that your forum is a shithole where your masters dictate what you can say or get banned.

Best start at page one and see how long your cognitive dissonance can hold out.




Now, run back to your safe space and post

"Ugggh I thought I'd check out "The old place"", be sure to swing by the politics folder as well. like you all do as if your the first to ever post that.

We could do with a few more laughs.

Anyone who "lives off clicks" doesn't actually make money to live off of. Anyone who thinks they can quit a job and make an ad-supported website a career is a massive idiot.
Are porn aggregates still a thing? Knew some guys in the late 90s/early 2000s who made a good living casually running one.

Why is the racist explaining the policy of the admins? Didn't that use to be bannable? Guess the dipshit the was a mod that had their account scrubbed.

Also lol at planetsmasher being depressed from not leaving his room for like 8 months. No shit, you're depressed.

Really good to be back, with a different name now! Niiiiiice!


I just random check previous posts on this thread and god damn... I never seen half of the things I've seen here while I was a user there.


Kinda goes along with why I got banned in the first place. Good riddance.
Any forum that exposes the dark underbelly of Resetera that the mods try so hard to hide.
Yep, once you realise what you were part of at Resetera it's pretty disgusting. Resetera is a wolf in sheep's clothing and many members just aren't aware or don't care or simply bury their heads in the sand. It's not a public forum by definition, it's certainly not open to free speech or differing kinds of people, beliefs or even discussions. There is zero room for discussion let alone growth, education or debating. It's intrinsic in the online world today, healthy doses of growing the fuck up to full maturity are required.

Quite a bait and switch or hijacking of a supposed good cause/community the admin/owner at Resetera pulled.

I remember you from the HaloEra, if I'm not mistaken. Didn't know you got banned there!


It's not open to free speech. I got banned for correcting someone regarding something with China - no warning, no anything. I was just consider an agent for the Chinese government (yeah I live in China, but I'm Portuguese). I didn't give my opinion, I just stated a fucking fact that is easy to look up if needed.

Because of it I simply restrain myself from even commenting anything regarding politics anywhere on the internet. People are not open for discussion, they just want to have their own being validated - you don't agree, you're gonna get hit by that ban hammer. Anyway, I remember GAF being more open to that, more inclusive to different ideals and ways of thinking. That's what a discussion board is all about, discussion.
