What Would it take to be a Resetera poster these days.

Topic title makes me wonder: if ResetEra continues mutating down the path it's on, and is still thriving 2-3 years from now, what exactly does that culture look like? What are its rules? What are its values?

Is there any historical precedent for a culture like REE's, either real-world or online? Some kind of anarcho-militant socialist thing? I ask out of anthropological & sociological curiosity--what is this runaway thing, so completely warped, broken, demented?

Ah, the Ree. Sorry this is gonna be a little long, but I spent several hours there the past few days and made some observations. I have a troll account, which I only use to try and make the horde screech. Immature of me, I know, but at the same time it's kind of funny.

There's not much to talk about over there and things have slowed down considerably. On the general side it's all the same politics day in and day out. Posts about some pop singer no one over the age of 16 cares enough about to discuss. 90% of the posts are five or six words in total. How does one respond to a thread about, say, some casting change in a TV show when it's 200 posts of people typing out several words and never looking back? It's even worse than Twitter.

On the gaming side it has gotten way too political. And threads that aren't political will inevitably have some political bomb thrower (sometimes a mod) roll in and try to stir shit up. It's almost impossible to merely have a simple conversation about games there. It always veers off into some super woke SJW bullshit.

Some of the mods have been trying to make more threads, probably a reaction to how slow they've become because all they do is ban people and others are rightfully afraid to make threads now, but it's boring stuff like comic books. What grown man want's to discuss comic books that much? Sure I like Spider-Man and Batman but I can't really delve into some deep discussion on them.

Well that's Ree in a nutshell to me. I couldn't tell you why anyone would want to post there but they have thousands of active members so they must be striking the right chords with certain people. I just cruise by, drop a bomb, get people banned (almost effortlessly, I might add), and laugh.

I'm surprised it has lasted this long. It's eating its self much more slowly than I expected it would. But a culture founded on outrage which demands orthodox purity of an ever narrowing variety can't sustain its self. Something will happen eventually, either users will revolt against the administration, or the cliques will exile everyone until nothing is left.

What does it take?

Well, a lobotomy is a good place to start, followed by a bollockectomy and a mangina implant.

Certainly not defending angry joe's Last of us part 2 review (before he was banned there)

I screenshoted this from twitter and posted this once before in another thread. I'm sure a lot of people missed it though:



He's defective alright.

Once it eventually implodes, they will move on and infest/take over something else and gradually destroy that.
A lot of them are coming back here. Look at all the Neo Members and look how they post and what they are offended about the whole time. They are coming back and slowly it will be GAF 1.0 again
