what are internet forums?

what do they represent at this point in history?

what does it mean that we can all communicate without having to see one another?

note - there are over 100,000,000 forums

can forums be patrolled?

now that it is so easy for us to communicate - what can we do with this?




trolling

what are internet trolls?

why do they do what they do?





i also want yall to let me know when it is okay to delete posts
and when it isnt


i dont like deleting anything
because i dont want the responsibility of controlling what yall see
but
it is your forum
so let me know what needs to stay and what needs to go





i want to determine what this is and what it is supposed to be

any insights?


PEACE

My ghetto pass has been revoked.

Nah, this forum bores the piss out of me. I don't care about the historical views of a bunch of deprived Africans.

Isn't this the dude that was banned because he posted some racist remarks? And why does KTL have to be fun? Isn't that why we have the Gen chat? :?

back on topic and off of jasper the racist(yes he really is) pedophile(yes he also really is)


internet forums are really wierd. You can really BE anyone you want to and contribute any type of commentary with or without any type of credibility. Its a phenomen thats either gonna have amazingly good or negative effects in the next crop of kids. People will build their real life personalities as well as their online personalities. Expect alot of written word, "literature" or not, to come up in the next 100 years

forums are good to get information to people in conversation, they can take there time with what you are saying.

i checked the corpse a long time ago i remember laughing but thinking this is hell on a forum.

I've contributed to this forum. I have made loads of good posts in here, but no one cared because I didn't push some kind of underlaying black supremacy message. If that makes sense.

This forum makes me fucking puke, but LHX is doing a good job.

"forum", fancy word for room is pretty much like a chat room in some way. But its more like an online bulletin board....exactly why they are called "message boards".

what is a troll? A troll is someone who makes topics, "troll topics" which are not meant to really discuss something such as finding answers etc., but rather just to cause an outrage of flames from the other posters.

when to delete posts? when they seem problematic for the thread, rather than locking the whole thread, deleting a few posts that are off topic can save the thread from conflict.

I guess every once in a while I'll have a troll tendency. I did that with the Outkast thread today, but I'll be damned someone call Outkast the wackest ever. I couldn't take it. But shouldn't it matter where the conversation is at? Don't some things belong in general chat if someone knows it's trollish? It'd piss me off to see some things in here cause its KTL that wouldn't bother me in general chat or maybe the hip-hop section.



As far as forum in general, I'll seek out forums that I know will disagree with about anything I have to say. Most people here are at least fairly open-minded, so I'll show up in a Bush chatroom to talk about 9/11 conspiracies, basically because when you talk to them you realize they're the actuall conspiracy theories because all their excuses have holes in them a mile wide. I keep breaking through their misconceptions to see if I can actually make them accept the truth. Which in all likely hood will never happen. But I feel like maybe they need to hear it the most. Most people in here probably know the deal or at least highly scepticall of anything Bush says without me sayin a word. It's the sleepwalker who need to be opened up. I try to do my part every now and then.
