Online communities

I’m thinking about giving up on online “communities”. They’re not communities; they’re loose conglomerations of persons who all like one particular thing, and who spend their time whining, trolling, picking each other apart, and rambling about how special they are. I already hate forums in general, because no fan forum is ever “on-topic”, and there is always the “in group” that’s been there since “the beginning”. Keenspot forums are especially annoying because they have hazing rituals. I don’t even bother with those unless something weird happened with a comic and I want to see if there’s any information available.

What I really hate, though, is stupidity, and there is a special place in my Book of Despising for people who both are stupid, and who then accuse me of being stupid.

Really, sometimes I think I should just give up the Internet entirely :P
