...I thought I'd enjoy my time here.
Boy, was I wrong.
I have no idea what is going on anymore. The blog space used to be my favorite place to be and...yeah, fuck that. It's a banal, sad place in which I feel my soul leave my body each time I visit.
So I stopped.
I apologize to my folks I communicate with for being a bit absent, but I've some serious medical problems. Legitimate, documented medical problems. None of this trendy shit. Disgusting.
So. There doesn't seem to be much communication like I had hoped there would be here. I'm not naming names or pointing at people, but I've sent messages to each of the people on my "list" and no one has responded in a long time...
Now. Don't get me wrong. Life freaking happens, as I made obvious. So, I completely understand. But...not a single response after all this time? These folks know what I'm talking about.
Furthermore...does anyone even know how to use an original social media site anymore?? Not these fucking "new-fangled" shits like Instagram, TikTok, Twitter...No, I mean LiveJournal, GaiaOnline, and old school MySpace, like this. There are other examples but honestly, those three are good enough..
I'm going to try so hard not to shit on the younger generation. So...hard.
But how do you not know what to do on a site with so many freedoms?!
I'm the one lost here!!
"What do you do here?"?! Are you fuckin' kidding me?! It makes me sad. It makes me not want to be here, among other reasons that I've mentioned...and...many, many....*looks at the blogs* hoo, many more that I shall not mention.
The forums and groups are pretty much if not completely dead if not equally banal; anyway, the places of interest to me are. By now, I should be going crazy with activity in my feed. Instead, I'm just disheartened as hell.
I want to love this site so much. It brings back a good ol' feeling, and it is something needed today.
I think I specifically mention in my profile that your profile has to be fucking LEGIBLE before I add you to my list!! I can't freaking read anything on your profile if it's flashing in blinding neon that clash like inverted colors on the holy wheel!! Son of a gun, that's MURDER on the eyes!! It's not good for anyone's eyes, not even yours, and we waste enough of our retinas on the internet as it is.
Don't get me started on the fact that the people who run this place don't appear to care about it at all. I've seen what appears to be better management on fucking Gaia, and veterans all know what happened THERE. *Shudders*
So much for staying calm...
I'm going to stalk this place for a while. Not sure what else I should do anymore.
No, I know.
