EtcetEraThread So is Era really not normal?
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Inflammatory generalizations, cross-forum drama, and attacking the community
No. Considering one of the most prominent members of the old place was literally arrested for child porn, which plenty of people knew him well enough to band around him to donate money to before the allegations came out, you have to remember a lot of the community migrated from there to here. There are also plenty of great people here too, but unlike 4chan or reddit, the shitheads know they’ll get instantly banned for being shitheads, so instead of outting themselves they hide away and passive aggressively chip away at discussion/virtue signal/concern troll to try and get it out of their system. There is only one real topic that allows everyone to be as vitriolic as they want without reprecussion on here, I think that goes without saying what it is, and maybe you can observe and get a glimpse of a poster’s true colors. But other than that you need to follow the hivemind. The average poster - myself included - had no idea just how fucked up Amir0x was before the arrest, he was even pretty outspoken against bigotry, misogyny, and did his fair share of virtue signaling. This place is very far from normal and shouldn’t be an accurate representation of what the general consensus is in real life. Every poster shouldn’t automatically be taken in on the merits of “well, they’re an ERA member so they must be progressive and intelligent, there must be a reason for ” and every discussion shouldn’t be taken as analogous to how the majority of people in the real world think. That said, it can be a pretty neat place for discussion about certain subjects and it’s up there with reddit for me in terms of SFW forum posting
