i can understand not finding any value in ILM's chatter about music, but i dunno if ILE's chatter about film, politics, food, etc. is intrinsically better in any way.

some dude, Monday, 5 May 2014 11:31 (five years ago) link

Fie upon thee! ILE's chatter is even now shaping the zeitgeist.

every time i look up an ILE thread about a movie i liked, 90% of the thread consists of 3-5 of the same posters saying "this was terrible"

can't even remember which thread tipped me over the edge tbh.

sure there's good and bad across (most of) the boards. sometimes the worst, most blithering, precious assholeness runs amok on ilm tho.

nostalgie de couilles (Noodle Vague), Monday, 5 May 2014 19:06 (five years ago) link

other times no doubt it runs elsewhere.

nostalgie de couilles (Noodle Vague), Monday, 5 May 2014 19:07 (five years ago) link

i firmly believe that blithering precious assholeness can run amok on multiple threads on multiple boards simultaneously

sarahell, Monday, 5 May 2014 19:09 (five years ago) link

i guess i still care about music, i probly miss a lot of the other shit

nostalgie de couilles (Noodle Vague), Monday, 5 May 2014 19:11 (five years ago) link

i'll take straight up assholeness over covert sock trolling any day
it's more honest for starters

What is the most assholish stuff on ilm? All I can think of are whiney/deej beefs in the rap thread and I don't even know if those guys do that anymore.

how's life, Monday, 5 May 2014 21:00 (five years ago) link

yea it's a pretty friendly place imo. at least the places i frequent there.

i guess "worst music writing" can get pretty caustic sometimes, though it's usually directed outward and not at other posters.

marcos, Monday, 5 May 2014 21:09 (five years ago) link

Plenty of ILM threads with barely anyone posting on them

thinking abt taking ILE outta my SNA for a while

Vape Store (crüt), Monday, 12 August 2019 14:56 (six days ago) link

look at ILM, there's hardly any threads posted on each day. Mostly under 20 but ILE has 3 times as much (mostly about Trump)

Go back in time and ILM had a lot more new or active threads. Now everyones on ILE talking about Trump.

I just need a couple of new sub boards (I Love Weather, I Love Mass Transit) and I’ll quit ILE. The politics threads I can take or leave, but it’s the tv and movie threads bogging down ILE that are the worst for me.

L'assie (Euler), Monday, 12 August 2019 16:45 (six days ago) link

I thought TV and Movies would have had their own subthreads, but then ILE would have fewer new answer threads than ILM

Would ILE be improved if politics had its own board because the regular top of new answers is full of US politics threads and that must put off a lot of people.

Music was my first love
And it will be my last.
Music of the future
And music of the past.

To live without my music
Would be impossible to do.
In this world of troubles,
My music pulls me through.

Music was my first love
And it will be last.
Music of the future
And music of the past
And music of the past

BUT ALSO IF YOU'RE MAD ABOUT NOT FINDING COOL FREE SHIT ON THE INTERNET FOR YOU TO READ YOU SHOULD THINK ABOUT ADDING COOL FREE SHIT ON THE INTERNET FOR OTHER PEOPLE TO SEE

Karl Malone, Monday, 12 August 2019 17:02 (six days ago) link

By this logic the number of 'Remember The 80s/90s' polls on ILM could be putting off a lot of people too.

All the “Best Song of May 1992 From My Mixtape I Lost in My Geo Prism” Polls are the worst.

I keep thinking of starting 20-30 polls slicing the same songs as every other poll into microfine combinations until everyone just gives it up, but people would probably eat that shit.
