Newfags, Tripfags, and Imageboard Conformity (21)

There's an excellent example of someone not integrating smoothly into an imageboard community going on right now on Gurochan. If you can tolerate the images, take a look here:

Brief glance, but couldn't see any evidence of her posting.

Though wouldn't you think that a girl twisted enough to firstly find gurochan, and then want to integrate into the "exclusive" community would know a bit better?

You'd think, but somehow these rotten people slip into imageboard culture.

They try to be unique. They use smileys. Sometimes they even post useful things, which makes it even more difficult to retain the nice imageboard culture that we, or at least I, know and love. I can't quite pinpoint why their nonuniformity bothers me so much, but you can just tell that they stick out, and it's unpleasant on some level.

And by that I didn't mean to imply that a good imageboard is one without useful posts; I meant that the fact that these people occasionally do something right makes it even more difficult to categorically label them as foul and wrong.

I was thinking she was either a troll or extremely dense (who somehow was savvy enough to find gurochan?).

I know how you feel though. They don't have the sense to lurk more before posting. They should just stay in their avatar forums and enjoy their ego-stroking.

I thought she had actually settled down, but apparently she flipped the fuck out and decided to "get back" at Gurochan by deleting her posts.

What a failure.

I don't mind conformity so long as it's not conforming in opinions or interests

Why shouldn't people use names/tripcodes?

Anonymity != quality, identity != trash posting

And this is why everyone hates small communities.

It creates a toxic, cult-like atmosphere where non-conformity is punished. You're smothering people and crushing out their joy.
