Introductions VIII: Some bad news for new folks
« on: April 11, 2022, 07:59:15 pm »
Hello, and welcome to PD.com.  Unfortunately, we're extinct, mostly due to facebook but also because Discordians don't get alone by definition.

You don't have to tell us how zany you are or how fucked up your head is, because we've already been there and done that.  However, you CAN tell us if you want, because we're all dead and won't complain (much).

Anyway, there's a ton of great content buried under 100 tons of angry/bitter bickering, and those nuggets are worth looking for.

Please sign the guest book, using the provided quill and some of Faust's jellied blood (difficult, I know, but it's tradition.)

Welcome back! I think we interacted like literally once during the long slow decline of PeeDee.

The Dok's right. The diagnosis is terminal. There's nothing here. It's a fucking wasteland. These days I do most of my evil on Twitter and only come here to say shit that would make Parag Agrawal's head turn into meat confetti like the bit from Scanners.
I am that worst of all type of criminal...I cannot bring myself to do what you tell me, because you told me.

There's a hole in everything.

I do! I don't know about anyone else. I do it out of spite.

same - sometimes i think about posting, but then i look at recent posts and it feels like there's nothing of value i can add to the conversation, and so i just close the page because i don't want to shit on a graveyard of more interesting content

From 2007 to, like, 2012? 2014? I checked this forum 10+ times a day.

Now, ten years later, whenever I sit down at a browser, my fingers still automatically type "pr", expecting the rest of the URL to autofill in.

by the way, Hi, I'm Cramulus.

I also run a little Discord server which is also a Discordian Cabal. We're the Aftermathematics Research Cabal. Shoot me a PM if you want an invite. No all spags allowed.

This is wrong.  Graveyards are for shitting, go nuts.

Am I allowed, or are you still mad about the Friday hotdog in Boston?

*on a serious note, who has the picture of you admonishing me?  I kinda need that.*

Every graveyard is a toilet if you're not a fucking coward

My name is Idiotis, I'm from Va, and I've been a Discordian since around 2002-2003.

I practice the arts and self improvement.

I have been crapping all over the graveyard since I got here.

I am a necromancer-in-training. I swoop down on old, dead threads, inject something inane or insightful, and watch the zombies rise. ...or plan on it, once I find more of the right stuff to sprinkle on the corpses.

:magick:

Great, now we're loitering in a graveyard of consensual shitting. And how is this any better? :argh!:

I quickly regretted that phrasing though. It was an unsuccessful marriage of two similar but distinct concepts:
  • respect for the collaborative creative content that came before
  • the recent posts immediately before my post rekindled that same energy, and my repeated response was like: "holy shit, i can't top that - why try?"

go nuts.

Been there. Would not recommend.
