The constant hyping of something like this which doesn't need to be exaggerated brings in and creates the really bad type of elitist, this eventually ruins the community making it no longer about anon internet culture and brings in pseudo hell elitist who end up doing revisionism and replace anyone or anything even related to anon internet culture beyond surface ideas at most. Then the clowns end up pissing on the corpse. They're still pissing on the corpse nonstop and have been for almost two decades now. Rather have it seam like something boring and undervalued so only those who truly want it come. This hasn't only happened with anon internet culture but doing "it's the future™" causes it but humans need pride, the best way to destroy a movement is demoralisation. This is one of the biggest problems with anon culture, avoiding way too much unnecessary ego without making a walled garden, since that isn't close to anon internet culture and tracks anons. Textboards get part of this right since there's no media unless you encode and part messages but if this is pushed as an artificial barrier it only increases the chance that those elitist start growing.
This is completely separate from orange stickmen bringing in green and pink stickmen but similar, incorrectly handling meta kills.>>97
Other weirdos was fine and related, the forum users' personal lives and influx of weirdo idols using the forum was the meta which ruined them. The latter wasn't avoidable forever for this exact type of community.
