And why do you think you need to be personally involved in a discussion to learn something from it? The only way you would "learn a lot more by being able to participate" is if you have actually something to contribute in the first place, and you won't get that by just posting for the sake of posting. And for the type of forum this place is it is getting near to blazing, at least in shitposting.Now, however I have a much different view on discussing topics in general. Whereas before to me discussion was a means to come to the best result possible, "getting to the truth of the matter" as it were. But now, simply put, I see discussion as an opportunity to have my mind changed, you lose half of the fun when you have to go back and just read a discussion between two different people, and I would say you learn a lot more by being able to participate.
@Auratus: Your declaration that the forum would die if there wasn't shitposting is as baseless as it is presumptious. I see no reason why that would happen and you haven't provided any, do you expect to be taken seriously?
Sorry for saying this, but my head is hurting at the level of stupid i've been seeing here as of late.
Now for something ligther...
Wait... There is people who actually think that?Xanatos wrote:Yes but many miss that point. Thankfully most who miss it don't bother finding this place.
