I remember the day I forgot my ILM password. I said to myself: "This is it. I'm free."

I only joined this place in 2012 (I think) and didn't start regularly posting until a couple of years later, the early 2010s everyone seemed to be constantly engaged in various forms of conflict and trolling and it wasn't a very nice place to be, (well maybe it was for some people.) It has calmed down a lot now, people can talk about their favourite music without being told that it's shit and they're an idiot, there's only one clusterfuck every other month, maybe just one per year if you stick to ILM.
OTOH maybe this is because the people with strong opinions have left, and it would go back to how it was before if they came back.
In conclusion ILX is a land of contrasts.

Quite a few ppl on twitter who I thought would've been here if it wasn't for twitter.

I say: it's time to bring them home!

Maybe I could start a banal conversations I have with myself thread

I’ll see if I can reach out to Pipecock. Even if he’s still in ‘take my toys and go home’ mode maybe he can scare up some uh link minded influencers to engage with 👍

recovering internet addict/shitposter (viborg), Friday, 18 November 2022 11:11 (one week ago) link

*like, minded

recovering internet addict/shitposter (viborg), Friday, 18 November 2022 11:12 (one week ago) link

Or is he actually banned now? Anyway this is all in jest, I won’t be reaching out to, or near, or around the cock of pipe.

Nah I just think it's everyone got old and less invested in music taste as a form of personal validation. Might be projecting but.

Can we get Lex back? Is he done with his book? Does he even use Twitter? Has he learned how to cook pasta yet?

MarkoP, Friday, 18 November 2022 13:22 (one week ago) link

The only person I can reach out to is the guy who made a post about not really getting Sly and the Family Stone's Fresh.

MarkoP, Friday, 18 November 2022 13:23 (one week ago) link

Lex is on Twitter but just tweets about tennis iirc

Dissatisfaction with the toxicity of late 2000s Internet culture is how I somehow wound up here in like 2009 or so.

MarkoP, Friday, 18 November 2022 13:32 (one week ago) link

Actually, long live Twitter if it means some of these people don’t come back.

I like Lex and treasure his posts on the Rebecca Black thread, but he was one of the primary "I hate most music and will tell you so" people, which imo was not good for ILM and afaict not doing him any good either.

link.exposing.politically (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Friday, 18 November 2022 13:38 (one week ago) link

when I read some threads from the 2000s there is often some shocking/ terrible stuff in there which would result in deletion and banning in 2022, it's true.

link.exposing.politically (Camaraderie at Arms Length), Friday, 18 November 2022 13:41 (one week ago) link

"I hate most music and will tell you so" people

and neither funny not insightful about that music.

Halfway there but for you, Friday, 18 November 2022 15:54 (one week ago) link

well he seemed equally passionate about the stuff he liked but maybe you were just hanging out on all the shitty music threads

lets hear some blues on those synths (brimstead), Friday, 18 November 2022 16:10 (one week ago) link

Maybe he came across that way for a reason

I haven't keep on a certain fellow from Edinburgh in a while, although I believe his biographer showed up recently.

he actually got good at cooking, was consistently posting nice looking meals on twitter for a while, i was like this is very weird circumstances to feel proud of someone
