I’m more interacting with the site than I am trying to win friends and make relationships. It’s the tech appeal of turning knobs and pressing buttons and seeing what lights up. I’m not enamored with nostalgia and commonalities like the rest of social media.

You are not yourself when you click a button and send a signal into a server in California. People on Facebook need to realize that as well.

Ok, just wondering. Thanks for answering.

How can one be sure that people on the internet are actually people?

I don’t think I’m cruel but I might be manipulating you for fun.

You know what?

Maybe I am trolling.

I mean if you are wondering why people don’t seem to connect with you, just look at what you’ve posted in this thread? You don’t have an interest in connecting with people.

But I’ll go as far as to say that this isn’t a real connection for anyone and neither is any social media at all. Social media is fun but I think it’s a negative overall.

Not cruel but you are talking about the subject.

Even just for a few posts. I turned a knob and lights turned on.

Are we really though?

I think that integrating into social media is unhealthy. There’s a lot of family members that I have who don’t use social media.
1 month ago - Saturday 2/15/20 - 11:19:27 PM EST (GMT-5)
Trying to maintain a distance from social media. I know people who use Facebook a lot. I don’t think it’s good. I think I’m trying to interact in a different, less social way.

You don’t think I’m saying negative things about my employer?

I can defend my employer.

They’re a small business with big clients. They’re swimming upstream. I think it’s okay that I’m working with them. It’s not a start up but it functions like one. A lot of creative interesting work being done there.

I think you put up a bunch of walls in the form of "social media is meaningless as are relationships held there" to then compensate for the fact that you have not made any meaningful connections. Or maybe the chicken came first. But I guess I just think you hold people at a distance purposefully because you're afraid of how they'd react if you were real.

Amaq on voice chat discord seemed quite personable and generally normal nice kinda person.
I think it’s at least a little bit just a tonal thing in written text that people find a bit jarring
1 month ago - Saturday 2/15/20 - 11:54:32 PM EST (GMT-5)
Seems like other people could say basically the same things as amaq, using different words and structure and no one would really think twice
And the thing skyfish was saying about amaq only talking about himself is pretty evident but that often seems to come from a place of paranoia/ defensiveness/ anxiety

That’s just my quick read of it anyway

But I’m wrong about stuff all the time so, you know..

You guys talk on discord?
Man, I want to know what you all sound like so I can laugh at you. Sorry, I meant, enjoy intelligent conversations with you all.

Sorry, but some people absolutely do make real connections online. I met my husband online and we're just short of having been married for 11 years rn and we are far from alone.

If you're not looking for anything like that here or on other online platforms, that's fine, but going about squawking about how shallow everything is will not sit well with some people because a lot *are* looking for a form of social interaction and it doesn't matter if you agree with it or not.

You'll be more at peace if you accept that there are many different kinds of people in this world with differing opinions and needs.

If that were really true, why do so many people fail to accept Amaq? He's continually the target of criticism because many do not accept his differences and needs.

Complaining about others who are not bothering you doesn't have to be accepted, sorry.
