I've got two, namely

That Doom feature in Wax Poetics was interesting. He was all like, "I'm just a regular guy

which I thought was too boring to post, and

GOD CUTTY WHY DON'T YOU QUIT

which was supposed to be a funny post on the lose weight thread, but I thought it might be interpreted as serious.

That phrase is interesting because it adjusts the emphasis so the sentence is more iambic. But it would have to because

I was gonna post on the '"500 Days of Summer" thread that I thought it would make a good back story for Cobra Commander, but I didn't feel like searching for the thread, coz what if someone already made the comment? I'd have to do 'edit' 'find' 'cobra', and display all posts. So, I posted it on facebook anyway.

I don't know? It's got a woman in the title, but it's two years old and the reads are on-site reads. It doesn't make sense. The simpsons porn one only partly makes sense, but a lot of those reads are site reads too. Wait, I get that one, because it persists because of the most read threads page working in concert with google hits. But the other one with the girl I just don't get, unless it's a lesser version of the same phenomenon.

Fact: www.dhmo.org is a website dedicated to that stupid joke your chemistry teacher makes in high school about dihydrogen monoxide (H2O) being the most abundant, potentially dangerous chemical in the world.

Fact: according to double top-secret web analytics I saw for epa.g0v today, the number two referrer to EPA's website in the past 3 months was www.dhmo.org, and it's been in the top 5 for the past year.

A previous housemate at the house in France, who I met briefly, had a cat that they were trying to transition to indoor apartment life after it had been indoor-outdoor. It did not go well. They ended up posting an ad trying to give away the cat with the header "Chat suffit!" I don't think that approach was successful.

good threads are generally conversational, but they do still tend to have more discontinuities and disruptions than an irl conversation. they also stop and start, often requiring a series of false prompts before one post finally gets the conversational part going again. i guess I'm saying there's a folder-conversation spectrum that each thread tends to fall on.

Ssäm Sauce | Martha Stewart (Sufjan Grafton), Friday, 7 January 2022 21:10 (two weeks ago) link

i mean, yeah, Sufjan, you're right -- there are certain ilx threads that are definitely folder like and their intent is such and there isn't really too much conflict or fraught-ness about it. But like, coping with covid is different than album covers with little people in someone's hair

sarahell, Friday, 7 January 2022 21:18 (two weeks ago) link

right, but that's the other folder-like extreme. even the more conversational threads will have some anecdotes thrown out and ignored. when someone posts about a spotify bug on their phone, they are certainly hoping to have a conversation* about it. it just isn't going to happen every time, so the thread looks like a log of spotify app issues.
