I'm close to quitting the online adaptation of Anarchism. What a flop. But anarchy is still butterflies in my belly, in love and at war like it's day one for me.

6, 10-14, 28, 33 are highlights. I'm here for the lack of masses chiming in.

that second one was only meant to make everyone question if their taste in music is bad

(i don't actually click anything on f/music)

kinshavo wrote

What you consider distressing in terms of music?

don't actually click anything on f/music

That's totally my opposite lol

ziq OP wrote

distressing

Like when raddle was brand new and didn't have a reputation yet and we convinced Matthew Perry's agent to get him to do an AMA with us, but then every single question was variations of "Why is Chandler such a homophobic piece of shit?"

suma wrote

Lol where's the link to that, I can't find it? I asked him who he thinks is the biggest sex pest? Him, Ross or Joey?

ziq OP wrote

That agent guy made me delete the whole thing but it's obviously a 3 way tie.

suma wrote

Lolol he must have lost it when that tankie asked Perry if he would donate to the CPUSA to help guillotine the bourgeoisie.

ziq OP wrote

Yeah probably the second best private message meltdown ever, after that time I convinced that misogynist ancap they could be an admin if they sent me bitcoin, and then I immediately donated the bitcoin to Girls Who Code and banned him.

lettuceLeafer wrote

the raddle psyop on reddit is absolutely hilarious. I don't even know who is and isn't a raddle infiltrator anymore. It honestly tops the time me and suma made a bunch of alt account to vote against karlmarxmouth.

And i don't really have much to complain about this raddle era is super cool.

Tho if you made me answer I would say I dislike thta no one has given me a easy answer to my massive conflict of being lazy and doing lots of anarchy. So i guess my complaint is that raddlers don't benefit me even more lol So its not even really a worst thing.

That time years back when the admins forced all Americans to start every sentence with "As an American" for a whole week.

Don't forget that time we "accidentally" blocked the entirety of the United Kingdom right after Brexit.

Nothing will ever top that one April Fools Day when the whole site was filled with people having frank and sincere conversations about Melissaphilia and anything questioning it or trying to change the topic was instantly deleted.

I like reading about your lives, and seeing old account comment.

asterism wrote

Yes and yes.

I particularly like the old accounts that you are certain will get banned but somehow never quite cross the line or just go unnoticed.

  1. tuesday's smooth NPR grooves

I've been told I have the face for radio.

I like all of the things about other posters on Raddle the most.

I dislike that there aren't more other posters.

existential1 wrote

Think about it though, people saying you have a face for radio is also saying you have a face that they want to have whisper in their ear.

Love: sonic fandom

Hate: I hate that "cheese theft discourse" didnt make the list.

ziq OP wrote

It happened too long ago for any of the current users to get the reference. That's how I'm getting away with completely making shit up about raddle's past events without anyone noticing.

GroundFrost wrote

That makes me feel weirdly old somehow? Oh well, i stand by it.

We should probably create this kind of fanfic here for about a couple of months and create a huge exposure post on Reddit...

Remember that time raddle donated a million dollars to the Mutual Aid Foundation?

And some users ragequit when the Mutual Aid Foundation refused to give explanation about the suspected guns smuggling in Rojava

Oof on 33. That last time I smashed the car window I was definitely not happy, but I did feel better seeing the driver side window shatter. And then I felt kinda bad because I was drunk and I had no idea whose car it actually was.

That can also fall on the worst thing side, since Dumai came back just to tell us she was about to die.

Fav: Things that help me expand my consciousness of negation.

Worst: The feeling of gradual staleness I've felt from the site. Idk if its just me personally, though I dont think it is from other posts I've seen from raddle old-heads, but the current iteration of the site just feels qualitatively different. Idk what it is exactly, but it feels like it has less differentiable utility to me.

To explain it with an example, years ago, I would log into raddle and see what were novel (to me at least) reading recommendations amd conversations about topical things at the time. Now, I feel like when i log there are conversations where I already can posit what everyone's gonna say cuz the references are stale and the roles people take in the conversation also mirror previously seen/said things.

I still feel raddle is the best available for what it is, but i wonder if what it has to offer me personally has hit some diminishing return.

ziq OP wrote

Maybe what the site is missing is all the pissed off tankies that used to stop by and get angry that the platform wouldn't bend to their will before lemmy hoovered them up.

or maybe it's just that anarchy is dead

existential1 wrote (edited )

Oh geez, the lemmy days were good fun.

kinshavo wrote

I relate to what you said and I changed my way to relate to Raddle. When I was a lurker I had a list of raddle references and such.

I posted a lot and many of the stuff I shared in my first year was probably lots of novelty stuff that could led one in a rabbit hole of those you spend lots of hours on some lazy&rainy afternoon.

I just accepted that this is what it is now, not better or worse, different
