I think the Internet has a special breed of people. So, as weird as this may sound people in real life are totally different than people online, even though it's still people that we're all interacting with. In saying that, I think you have to decide whether you want to surround yourself with people online or in person. I think a lot of people try to do both, especially now with all the networking sites and apps, but they always end up surrounding themselves with one more than the other. So, no one can really do both. You either become that special breed of people over the Internet, or you become that person that has a real life. Even though, you're a person that has a life regardless of going online.  

 

I surround myself with online people. Then leave to surround myself with real people. And sometimes I even surround myself with no people. Each phrase last for a few months at a time before switching off to a new stage. You can try that. I won't lie, it's hard to keep relationships like that. People tend to think you're ghosting them in person. Or that you're a troll, if you're doing this online. But, it's good because you get to have breaks. And some people need breaks from socializing. Basically, I think the problem isn't that people on here are pretentious it's that you just need a break from these type of people. Just like you would need a break from people in real life, so you go on forums like this.

 

I think if you complain about any group of people you just end up looking like what you claim. For example, you claim Hip Forums has people that are pretentious. But, in saying that you're the only one that looks pretentious. Even if there is a ton of comments in this thread alone that sounds pretentious you will be the only one that looks pretentious. Even if you're right it doesn't matter because you're the negative one that pointed it out. Basically, you're not doing yourself any favors by stating such things. So, really you're just screwing yourself over. It's better to either accept them, or leave to find a group that you actually like. 

 

The good thing is that as humans we can belong to any group. We just have to be comfortable there. 

 

I hope I helped. And I'm sorry you feel so negatively. It sucks when we start grouping people together in such a negative way. We end up being blind to the people in that group that aren't like that. 

 

 

The fallacy in this is that all people are real, and the term IRL, or "in real life" is a bit of a misnomer; reason being: the internet is a place; all people are real, whether you meet/interact with them on the internet or any other way, and have real lives; and that everything that happens in life is real, whether it happens on the internet, or any other place. So, anything that happens in life, wherever it happens is real, thus real life. So everything that happens, happens IRL.

 

The same people that are on the Internet are the same people that are everywhere else.

Srsly though, 20k is something special. My goodness, it'd take me 2 days to figure out which post to waste it on. Probably.  Seems fitting considering the context of this thread, I'm mean is your epeen really so gigantic you'd actually spend more than a few minutes trying to figure out who to stick it in?

True, but also there is fallacy in not really knowing who one is talking to on the internet....thanks to the people who disguise themeselves...are not who they say they, come on as many people on one site... etc.....
I am not saying you or I do this, but many people do....so it is hard to have any trust with people without the other dimensions of their being to have sense of them as in real life...all that is on the computer is the type written word.

The same people that are on the Internet are the same people that are everywhere else.

In my personal experience, all people are not real at all.

 

People primp and pose and pretend to be shit that they are not.

 

So I hafta wonder:  Where do you get this shit? :)

 

I mean, sure, you can say that all people are real as far as who and what they REALLY are...but how many people let the REST of us see who they really are?  THAT is MY definition of being real.  And in my experience there are a LOT of pretenders, but very few folks being real.

I am prolly not being totally real myself...but I am trying at least...

 

And being real is not just sumthun you do like a fucking Eagle Scout project...it is something that takes lifetimes of fucking hard work.  So therefore to denigrate it to nothing as you seem to be doing seems almost...I dunno...kinda Satanic. To be honest.

Not really, this kind of format, messageboards, are a rarer thing nowadays.

The alternatives are places like reddit, where it's a free for all, or Facebook, which annoys me no end,

The same people that are everywhere else? I'm glad reddit types, or idiot daily post pictures of my lunch types aren't here

People don't get more real when posing as how they really would like to be perceived. 

 

Never had that thought when looking at a person acting tough, or when someone's attention whoring, or when someone tries to impress someone of the other gender?

considering the OP's past contributions, this bit of silliness isn't surprising.

 

I'm pretty much the same with people online as I am in person, a bit of an asshole, but usually right about what I'm being an asshole over, so I leave people in the quandary "What a fucking ass, but he is right...damn!"

a lot of that's been going on at the new job lately where I posses decades of experience compared to the months that the people in charge possess.

Bottom line is:  Why fault anybody for being who/what they are?  Why expect folks to be perfect?  Are YOU perfect?  It seems obvious you are not. ;) 

If you are REALLY real...then why not engage folks in REAL discussions, instead of getting up on your high horse and acting superior? :)  Innit? ;) 

 

So who is posing here...see...
