What the fuck is that Raynor post and how have I never seen it before?

Raynor was always the most legitimately insane user on this board (well, maybe after Neville).
Idk dude, there was competition for that title back in the day. Not that everyone was insane, but Danny/Cobb/Jed were all definitely capable of saying shit as crazy as this.

If you guys actually disagree with Raynor's post (especially to the point of calling him insane), you've become the very thing you set out to destroy.  I'm ashamed of you guys.  No wonder this place is dead.

Saying that the Ghostbusters reboot caused him to question the futility of existence and pontificating on that for a couple paragraphs is a little out there Bread.

Honestly, the worst thing in Raynor's post is its spelling. ("existencialism", really? Not to mention that he actually meant nihilism, to which existentialism is fundamentally a philosophical response arguing that lack of inherent meaning in life besides the one you add to it is a good and hopeful thing.) When I reposted it earlier, I assumed you all were already aware of it, and would focus on the AJ video instead. (Did anyone actually watch it? Because it is darkly hilarious.)

Instead, I was taken aback, like Braden. I can forgive this sentiment from Paasche, since he joined the group even later than I did (even if Diego seems to remember it otherwise), and probably didn't bother to look through the entire wiki of ours before Diego (rightfully) consigned it to ashes. However, the response from him, the effective founder of the group is stunningly short-sighted. Can anyone really legitimately say that what Raynor wrote was more "insane" than this?



If you look at the dates, you'll see that this was after Raynor's post as well.

Or indeed, that it was more insane than "Why Marvel is destroying America"? Than all the so-called "wars" fought on RT back then? Than the "Treet Johnson's Suicide Assistance program" and Diego's "Tutler" alter ego? Than the time Diego, Treet and James Tan (really a shame he drifted away such a long time ago) made horrifically cringeworthy troll accounts at Tumblr?

Sure, I accepted that this was the way it was going to go. In fact, reading Lurkmore had shown me that's the way it nearly always goes. Both the FIDO.net trolls, the Russian counterpart to 4chan (2ch), its various spin-offs and the absurdist troll group Upyachka (itself a spin-off of the "elite" Lepra ("Leprosy") closed forum) trolled and even DDOSd' a lot when its main contingent was made of teenagers or thereabouts (to the point 2ch remnants and Upyachka DDOSd' each other for a week, about nine years ago), then grew out of it several years later, and began to hate teenagers trying to join them and troll other targets more than anything else in the world. (Which was inevitably followed by slowly shrinking into irrelevance.)

The fact that groups so much larger and more vicious than we ever were went through that same process shows this is not really something to worry about. I already accepted that we are all trying to set up our individual lives now, and moreover, we no longer enough had enough targets all of us felt sufficient animosity about in the first place anyway.

As in: Nolan stopped making the kind of movies we hated. Snyder got fired, and DCEU has already had their first bona fide flop. The YA movies like The Hunger Games and Maze Runner have flamed out into utter irrelevance as well. (I think we have Trump to thank for that; all their fanbase now thinks they are already sleek and sexy heroes of their own dystopia). That's not even to mention that when the RT forums died, no-one here cared enough to wage war elsewhere anyway. (Unless you count Tut's "Marvel is destroying America series", but if you do, then the response again becomes even more hypocritical.)

Once again, our old glory days are behind us, and new ones will not come for years. This website is somewhere near the bottom of each member's top 10, and that's just the way things go. The least we can do is to avoid feeding hypocrisy and self-serving amnesia.

It's not the sentiment I disagreed with. I was just commenting on the rambling sentence structure, injection of random (misused) philosophical terms, and immense capacity for exaggeration, all of which are hallmarks of Raynor's posts. But I appreciate the effort to liven up the site nonetheless.

It's definitely possible that I'm just retarded but I actually read that Raynor post as pretty serious...

Guys... that post was nearly two years ago. I wrote it literally right after I got out of bed without some basic spellcheck, and that I practically disavowed that post after time went on. But man, looking at the reaction was sort of entertaining, to say the least.
