At normal social media, the topic is embraced and most people give their honest
At forums, everyone tries to nullify and deconstruct the topic and have nothing
constructive to offer.
At normal social media there are many readers.
At forums, the ten people that read you are mostly moderators. The others are
just nasty protectors of the sacred cow truths. Each person must have several
identities, to pad the forum, and provide the illusion of many people in
disagreement of you.
At normal social media, posters are only considered for their ideas and words,
no credibility games are played.
Forums operate under the pretense that the moderators and their friends know
everything. All visitors are ignorant and have no credibility, and anything they
say is automatically wrong.
This is why forums are dying, and deservedly so. I was stupid to think i could
get around the ridiculous nonsense, but forums are designed to be a losing game,
and will only stifle any visitor with substance.
Forums will die, and those who were supressed by them will move forward. The
people will find others who actually want to hear their words. They will get
real feedback, and will sometimes experience agreement.
They will exist, forums will not.
