I've discovered that this is the main problem with imageboards; take 4chan for example, it's full of people who care more about the discussion than the thing they're discussing. Nobody on /co/ watches cartoons; nobody on /v/ plays video games; nobody on /fit/ lifts weights; and it's pretty much a given that nobody on /pol/ engages in politics or reads political theory. These people's enjoyment of the site comes solely from being a part of the in-group, repeating the correct opinions, regurgitating the shibboleths, finding "subtle" ways to convey their bitterness and misanthropy to a crowd of people who are just as empty as they are.

It all reminds me of this Roger Ebert quote:

>A lot of fans are basically fans of fandom itself. It's all about them. They have mastered the Star Wars or Star Trek universes or whatever, but their objects of veneration are useful mainly as a backdrop to their own devotion. Anyone who would camp out in a tent on the sidewalk for weeks in order to be first in line for a movie is more into camping on the sidewalk than movies. Extreme fandom may serve as a security blanket for the socially inept, who use its extreme structure as a substitute for social skills. If you are Luke Skywalker and she is Princess Leia, you already know what to say to each other, which is so much safer than having to ad lib it. Your fannish obsession is your beard. If you know absolutely all the trivia about your cubbyhole of pop culture, it saves you from having to know anything about anything else. That's why it's excruciatingly boring to talk to such people: They're always asking you questions they know the answer to.

Gee, Quinn, what DOES this remind you of the most....?

Oh, Sandy! They're just harmless, unfashionable nerds!

That'll show that guy that proved too quick in that discussion you had wrong, finally!

Also ur a faget and ideas grow like the fruit on a tree, nurtured by the waters of understanding in the garden of the mind. I also use /v/ and am half way through my Persona 2: Innocent Sin playthrough but like to talk about other games in the down time. Games keep me up too late to play too long on work days :-/
