It's part of the reason why I've drastically cut back on lurking imageboards (besides the drop-off in post quality). I'm tired of recognizing the same fifty or so anonymous posters by the way they type or by what pictures they usually attach to their posts. It's the most surreal thing and it's not just on imageboards. The only website I use that still gives off the atmosphere of being significantly populated is Twitter. It feels as if the internet is slowly losing its voice over time.
