2007. The whole damn site got an overhaul. They said I'd get over it, but I still haven't.

No.

In all seriousness, I come to Fark to calm down. The news would be 100x more depressing without the snarkiness. Also, this place, even with our resident trolls, has much less douchebaggery than reddit, IMO.

I find farkers tend to take themselves a lot less seriously than other sites (a quality I greatly admire in general).

As a frequent douchemitter, I get a kick out of seeing the few posters who have made a big production of going out of their way to tell me they have put me on their ignore list posting replies in every damn thread I submit.

Bike threads and pony threads also bring out the wonderful people.

Oddly enough, the best threads are probably the wrestling threads.

I don't find myself bothered or wrapped up enough in a Web site to have it physically affect me.  If that's happening to you, there's something going on in your life that's making it happen.  Blaming FARK is just covering it up.

Like that one guy who got all ragey and quit over people poking fun at Tony Romo.
 
2014-03-29 10:33:23 AM  
Some of the football threads on Sunday have been a lot of fun. It's liking hanging in a cool sports bar with good cheap beer. And at night Earguy brings in some strippers.
 
2014-03-29 10:37:06 AM  
Any time somebody argues physics, statistics, probability, etc. but can't do basic math I wonder how people can rationalize themselves as smart when they know they don't know much.

So I never go in the politics tab...

But you know they love you-woo-woo-woo-woo-woo.  And that may be all they need to know.

As far as internet places to hang out and become informed at the same time, this place is good.  Need it to balance the derp in meat world (omg you get fined $90 a month if you don't get Obamacare, even if you have other insurance!, for instance).

Subby, your blood pressure would probably be a lot higher if you didn't come here (and fap one out, be honest).

I mainly come here to be an utter smartass. Occasionally I learn stuff, too, but typically it's entirely accidental.

Usually I'll just leave a thread if it's getting really nasty but one in particular made me not angry but just depressed. The one when Hans Zimmer wrote that tribute to the Aurora victims and the whole thread was full of people acting like it was some HUGE scam to get their precious dollar. The level of paranoia and anger was just surreal.

Later on, I realized letting the opinions of people I'll never meet affect me so much probably wasn't healthy.

How long have you been in posting here? Perhaps the little quirks of the culture that you found interesting when you first came here are now getting on your nerves. I was never a big lunch eater before I visited. Just a small sandwich was good enough for me usually. First time I sat down to eat lunch at work I couldn't believe how much food there was. More rice than I'd ever be able to eat plus some meat, two vegetable dishes AND a soup?!? And I was expected to eat this every day? Ludicrous! I remember one hot and humid day last summer where I turned down lunch when they asked me if I was coming to eat. I just wasn't hungry. You know how you get sometimes when the heat just gets to you and you don't really want to fill your body with 6000 calories? Well jiminy cricket you should have seen the look on their faces! It was like I just punched a small dog or something. Now I would never punch a dog - that was just a metaphor...or hyperbole? I don't know. My GCSE English teacher wasn't very good at explaining the difference between those things. She was a good teacher, but not one I would write home about, if you catch my drift. Actually, I probably wouldn't write home about very much. International stamps are so expensive here! I went down to the post office to send some Christmas cards home this year. Now I hadn't ever been to the post office alone before so I figured this would be an experience. On my walk down I decided to stop for a quick bite since I was feeling a little peckish if I may be so bold as to say. Well you know what happens, one bite turns into two and two into four and before I knew it by the time I got to the post office it was closed! I couldn't believe my luck and went back to work - which was obviously freezing cold! - so I used the cards to light a fire under my desk to keep warm. Anyways, one thing led to another and that's why I'm not allowed to play with matches at work anymore.

I learn lots of things on Fark.  Mainly I learn that everything I like is bad and that I should feel bad for liking it.
 
2014-03-29 02:38:04 PM  
The only thing that annoys me is threads where science is being discussed, as some assmunch thinks they are being clever by posting what they think is funny 'Herpa Derpa, earth is only 6000 years old!'.  There's a similar trend with anything remotely political (Thanks, Obummer! and variations thereof).

Listen, guys, you're not helping.  You sound like douchebags, and you are cluttering up what would otherwise be a thoughtful, intelligent discussion with unclever, unfunny commentary that adds nothing but distraction to the topic at hand.  I know you feel you have something to contribute, but please put a little thought into it.  Repetitive snark has it's place, but you are well past the tired meme area with this stuff.  You turn away people who would otherwise stop and contemplate their own positions and possibly change their minds.  Kneejerk liberal derp is just as bad as kneejerk conservative derp.  It says more about you that you spew that stuff than it does about the people you direct your vitriol at.  There are very liberal Farkers who I respect, even if on certain areas I disagree with them.  I respect them because, though they may feel strongly about a certain point of view, they are able to present it with far less emotional baggage and a ton more rational thought than reactionaries.  You're like the Nancy Graces of Fark.

I'm not saying sarcasm isn't welcome on Fark, in fact it's one of my favorite things when I lurk.  But.... Nancy Grace.

What cracks me up is how some on this site seem to validate themselves by their level of snark and "you got told."  LOL   Seriously, if you've got your panties in a twist that much over something I write here, then next time you're in town, hit me up and I'll buy you a good beer.  Srsly.

When I first discovered that Drew Curtis was just a character like Aunt Jemima, Lassie, or Olivia Newton-John - just an actor to be replaced when the latest one dies of alcohol poisoning. What are we on, the fifth or sixth Drew Curtis now? Or is it more like eighth or ninth? And the rumors of the clone farms? - I still have nightmares about the fields of free-range Drew Curti being created by a government gone mad.

When I had a comment pulled for calling a sociopathic pustule a "negative nancy".

Then I learned the fark magic - when you want to call out some jerk on their jerkiness, you say "The sort of people that think that are..." rather than "You are a rat-fellating oxygen thief whose mother should have strangled you with the cord before jamming your feto-corpse back up her syphilitic snatch and interring herself under the contents of the maternity hospital's hypodermic needle dumpster."

No, dead serious. It was 2008 and 2010, respectively. Both people involved were perma-banned from FARK.

In the second case, it was the first time I have ever heard my boss call someone a "farking moron".

I don't follow wrestling... but the NASCAR threads are my favorite.  Got a good community there, and the trolls are ignored so they basically don't even try anymore.
