“leaving” a website is a strange concept since people really just go to other websites, and coming back is just really “hey i’ll type that url again”

I don't think people really do leave ILX here for good, they are locked in the servers like the end of "San Junipero"

never understood the hate of ILM on ILE

Algerian Goalkeeper (Odysseus), Sunday, 25 February 2018 21:38 (one year ago) link

I don't hate ILM. I am simply a bad fit for the culture there, so I avoid it. Near as I can tell, the incidence of clusterfucks is similar between ILM and ILE, so it isn't as if one is a snake pit and not the other.

As opposed to hating everything on ILE.

Every time I check in it feels like going back to my old high school and finding everyone I went to school with still there wandering the halls and muttering to themselves

flopson, Sunday, 25 February 2018 23:09 (one year ago) link

I found ILX through ILM around 2001 or 2002. I prefer ILE and then the noize board. And then I left all of it for about 10 years except a maybe 2 times a year check in. ~3 months ago I started checking it every day. I'm not a social media person and I still have contact with old ilxors in person. I dunno. Sometimes I feel like venting without wanting to see likes or being notified of responses.

one month passes...

it doesn't really have anything to do w/ toni morrison specifically but more the general notion that, say, a black woman who made art mostly about and for other black women isn't really being talked about on this board primarily because we have no black women who actively post on this board

― marcos, Thursday, August 8, 2019 5:05 PM (one month ago) bookmarkflaglink

There is this, but there's also the effect (which I don't know if it's better or worse) where we'll talk about something that has an aspect (possibly a total aspect) relevant to an experience outside of our own, and, ignoring that aspect entirely, conclude that we've nailed it.
