I miss what Geocities represented: the ideal Internet where normal people just made bad web pages to talk about what they were interested in.
@firstname.lastname@example.org galaxy brain: these were actually the Good Web Pages
@kistaro While I appreciate the accessibility Tumblr allowed with various themes (if one cannot code) and being able to make your own (easier than LJ's), the actual "community" was atrocious and is a major player into why social networking is horrible now...
@Taylor Quote-reblog as the only means of reply unavoidably nurtures passive-aggressive behavior and amplification of arguments. When the only way to communicate is screenshot dunking, it’s not a good place
@kistaro Never mind the fact it removes control over your own posts, etc., compared to a more sensible comment-based feedback system.
And then they all moved to Twitter. nyeh.
I do miss people just having websites and blogs... let your personality flourish on your own space~...
