Do you miss the internet of the 90s and the 2000s?

>It feels forced.

It IS forced. No one actually types like that because they think l33t corruptions are so funny, they type like that because it makes them think that its some "old internet" revival and that they are oldfags because they talk to each other in that way. Its all a big LARP because they don't actually understand anything about the "old internet" or how to "revive" it. They try to cover this using superficial means, but it doesn't work.

It's funny and ironic how they act like the one thing they try not to be

I'm probably responsible for the majority of the l33tsp33k and old catchphrase abuse (among other things) over on The Site That Shall Not Be Advertised. I do it because A: it's fun, and makes a change from being the miserable faggot I'd previously become, B: I'm a member of the generation that abused it to death the first time around, and C: I'd rather the younger users there adopt that style of netspeak over the LOLcat and "doremi speak" garbage they were using before.

A chunk of the userbase is obviously on the younger side, but I don't really care. Virtually everyone on this side of the internet was once the "annoying kids on the internet" themselves, and I appreciate any level of enthusiasm shown towards an era I remember fondly. When I was younger I would always look up to the old guys; I loved hearing all their tales about the "old days" that I'd missed out on, and I would try to emulate their mannerisms to better "fit in"; so I can't hate young people doing the same thing 20 years later.

All I really want these days is an active, lighthearted, vaguely anime/otaku-oriented imageboard where the main goal is to have fun and entertain each other, as opposed to the usual enclaves of grouchy twenty-somethings taking themselves way too seriously, or masses of braindead retards seeing who can piss each other off the most. For better or for worse, and despite its flaws, that site is the closest thing I've found to my "ideal". I'll probably continue posting there until it either implodes (again), or I come across something better.

I am so confused. 110 tries to have a lighthearted conversation, and then immediately insults the first person to respond. Twice. What is going on?

Unpopular opinion but it wasn't smartphones and big companies that killed the internet they were only part of the problem. It was actually all the people who acted like assholes on the internet back in the day and thought internet culture was about being a edgy racist sexist pedophile who bullied people with autism because they found it funny. These types of people ruined the fun for everyone else back in the day and are one of the big reasons why we have a no fun allowed internet nowadays.

I agree that old internet edginess was lame as fuck, but you're underselling the reality of corporate changes on the internet, you can't say they were only "part of the problem" when the problem you point to has nothing to do with that

The end of the "old internet" was enabled by none other than tech nerds themselves, who 'embraced' the web 2/3.0 stuff for so long that corporations had only to show up and buy their souls with the promise that they will improve everything by writing more code. They then summoned the "modern web" by themselves, often in free overtime and amidst their own chants praising the virtues of modern browsers. The old ie6 -compatible web was toothless in comparison.

Someone reminded me the other day of how malicious popups used to be, and I don't miss that. Remember when popup blockers first became a thing?

Of course, the fucktards that make web coding added those newfangled popup things that you can't block these days, because they're dribbling shits, but at least the new ones don't spawn new windows in an infinite loop.
