I feel similarly about f/collapse.

But the space is a good archive to refer to when I need to engage people not like us.

I agree. My question was more pertaining to anarchists engaging with other anarchists. Imagine if as much time and energy was spent engaging with theory or developing new methods as is currently expended reposting msm articles about shitty cops and politicians. Nevermind the time spent agreeing on how shitty they are.

Maybe I’m just grumpy today.

More to your point though, engaging outside our little corner is worthwhile. Enjoyed another lively quiver session yesterday. Leftists get hot when civ/humanism is criticized. All non communist thought is interpreted as “anti-name your identity category”. Strange and conflicting dynamics at work.

It's way easier to post stuff to an archive than to do theory work. Usually when I'm posting I'm just trying to take it easy. In my case at least I'm doing as much hardcore theory and experimentation on methods as I can, but that's a whole different realm from copy/pasting links from facebook to here.

yeah, people half-ass their theory all the time. I spend time doing what I can to not be one of those.
