Well, I don't remember names too well, but the negative effects I've gotten from these particular posters is that I come on ILX too often.

There's no fight clubs for girls. And fight clubs didn't exist before the movie (or the book).
And I've just changed my e-mail - not that I think anyone cares (not a grab at pity), but I don't want you to think that I'm someone else. Or something.

i keep writing tl;drs (true love doctors) here and then deleting them, so instead this is the quick summary: ilx is more of a "community" for me than just about any irl community. in certain ways that is endlessly rewarding, and i don't even want to know how many times i click the ilx bookmark everyday. it is weird. it's too much. when i think about transformative effects it's not so much one person or group of people that i think of, or a specific thread, but just the overall influence of what i'm reading and thinking and talking about all the time with you all. true <3 doctors

with all that said, big ups to pplains. dr casino said something about pplains' "finest hour" on the steely dan thread today, and my first thought was "more like pplains finest year, with 8760 one-hour blocks, each one featuring a pplains greatest hit. god, 8760 hours isn't really that long for a year, i really expected the number to be higher."

also: if you're having a bad day and need something to lift your spirits, check out the only song by The Bonzai Predicament. it is really good:

Horseshoe (miss u, lady) specifically because she talked somewhere on board about body positivity and HAES and posited that dieting might be unhealthy. For someone who had an eating disorder in the past and who has been on a diet pretty much constantly since I was 10, being introduced to these ideas was nothing short of life changing.

Aw, don't feel bad! I meant to post that here last week but realized I didn't. It was such a big deal to me at the time (this was like 2010 ish) that I wrote to her separately and she sent me all kinds of reading recs and it was a really big thing for me.

I'm not sure if she's gone but I haven't seen her post in a while but I don't really post very much these days so idk.

I'm also going to say Odysseus for dragging me out to regularly participate in things like chat and plug and reading philosophy, through which I made irl friends. Also, the mid-00s metal polls introduced me to contemporary avant- and post- black metal, which became a regular part of my listening diet.

Don't want to be nasty and there some assumptions coming up on my behalf but, if by 'A***' you refer to Horseshoe: there's probably a reason why she *never* used her real name on ilx and would probably prefer for it to stay that way?

Le Bateau Ivre, Monday, 30 October 2017 23:23 (two weeks ago) Permalink

her name isn't abby?

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Monday, 30 October 2017 23:33 (two weeks ago) Permalink

oh wait you meant crabbits? i thought you meant horseshoe, whose name does not begin with A
anyway that's now how she spells it but yeah maybe not use her name

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Monday, 30 October 2017 23:35 (two weeks ago) Permalink

I don't know whose name is Abby, all I was trying to say was that name never came up on here, the dropped 'Abby' only made me wonder 'who?', and one might not use it that freely if the person itself didn't use it that way either on here.

Le Bateau Ivre, Monday, 30 October 2017 23:57 (two weeks ago) Permalink

good point

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Monday, 30 October 2017 23:59 (two weeks ago) Permalink

horribly phrased sentence on my part but hope you get the gist. dropping her birth name felt like doxxing to me.

Le Bateau Ivre, Tuesday, 31 October 2017 00:03 (two weeks ago) Permalink

agree that "let's not do that going forward" is a good way to proceed wrt that issue

idk the answer to this or that it has been one person so much as a community presence for me (like KM)
it's a place i can go reliably, a place i can jib jab about stuff without much concern because no one can see me or know who i am? ilx can be relaxing in that way (except for when it's being toxic or i follow the wrong threads) + it's also a place where people like talking about music. you don't get that everywhere, or the people who like the same music i do or are interested in music the way i am aren't always compelled to talk with me about it in person (more now than before, but it was a long time between high school/college and a time when any of my close personal friends cared about music as much as i did)

i will say that i have gotten positive vibes from all ilxors i have met irl
and there have been quite a few!

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Tuesday, 31 October 2017 00:07 (two weeks ago) Permalink

i have gotten positive vibes from all the vast majority of ilxors
it needed to be corrected and i am not interested in talking about it

weird woman in a bar (La Lechera), Tuesday, 31 October 2017 00:10 (two weeks ago) Permalink

If now it comes across as if I am berating you, of all people, that is totally not what I intended! Just thought the transition from "we sure miss horseshoe" to "yeah Abby is the best" felt weird to me (which wasn't you even doing that in the first place).

Ilx is totally relaxing, a safe space for me too, very much so, and it should stay that way. I met good friends on here, stayed at ilxors places abroad, but don't get called by my first name on here because I don't use it as a dn. And that is awesome.

So ilx is awesome, all positive vibes for me for so many reasons. And it should stay that way imo, is what I meant. Without calling users by their real name when they themselves haven't used that.

But don't get me wrong, all <3 to you LL. 'LL' is fine.
