for good or for awesome: Don't let the door hit your ass on the way out.

Who said i was leaving?  Fark may be a pit of poo now, but there's fun to be had in a poo pit if you just learn the joys of flinging poo.  What you don't do is take the time and effort to try to clean the place up for something like a tea party, because there's no reining in the horde of excrement-covered poo-flinging monkeys.  So that effort just isn't taken anymore.  When in Rome, and all that.

Mind you, I don't go out of my way to troll people; I don't get any joy from that.  I really just post what's on my mind.  I'm not concerned with being consistent within a thread or abiding by someone's unwritten rules.  I get called out for it, which is fair, but it affects me like someone pointing out a stain on my pants having just emerged from a 10,000 person food fight.

busy chillin': Lately? Sheeeeeeeeeeit, we have been trolling off topic headlines on articles we didn't read for years and years.
There is good debate filled with snark and derp in every thread. Same as it ever was.

The behaviors have always been there, the signal:noise ebbed and flowed slowly over the course of many months.
I don't know when it reached tipping point, but for a long while now the signal:noise reached a new low and stayed there.
It used to be an eclectic mix of serious articles and trolling, which was never pretty but at least was interesting.
Nowadays my expectation is that the headline is shiat, the source is shiat, and thread is shiat.  I still find it entertaining but only in a "eh, let's see how my shiat smells differently from others' shiat" and just take a dump.

Will it recover?  Maybe, it has before, but it's been shiat long enough that I've not only stopped caring, but stopped waiting to care again.

Seems like putting a dolphin in a freshwater chlorinated pool would be painful for the dolphin.  Although it looks like they eventually had to take it out back and shoot it.
