You know you've been a Datalounger too long when...

a post that you read ellicits no reaction in you until someone posts an "I ffed r__," then go back and read it and say to yourself, "Holy shit, that DOES deserve a ff."

What tells you that you've been here too long?

by Anonymousreply 4211/16/2012

re-tread threads. Bisexuality, arguments about the term "elder gay" and arguing about the talents of old gay icons (Judy, Barbra, Liza, etc.) and their relevancy. Comparing Madonna to Lady Gaga.

In fact, arguing is OVER for me. Done it. Made all the points. Just don't care to engage with some total stranger wackjob on the internet anymore. Most threads I see on DL are repeats of stuff that has ALL BEEN DONE BEFORE. I am winding down with this site, actually. Been here since about 2002 and there is not much new to see here. Its a bigger world out there.

When your sensitivity about "WHET" knows no bounds.

You remember how "bread pudding" entered the DL lexicon as an indicator of lesbianism.

A sense of internalized homophobia overtakes your consciousness and you think I really need to stop reading all the rantings of internalized homophobic gay people on DL. But you can't quite bring yourself to stop. And then you just feel sad.

When you say "X's collapse is complete!" when talking to friends or family members.

Or, when you follow their pronouncements with "Mary!"

When you 'punch and delete' someone in real life.

When you tie 'Corn? when did I eat corn?' into a real life conversation.

You know more about Anderson Cooper and Matt Bomer than your own boyfriend (if you have one).

You see something in the news or in your own every day life and guess how many threads about it get created and how many replies they get.

When Primetime's 'cock' blocking you from having a good time (= not allowing you to reply to posts).

When the first thing you notice about this thread is that "elicits" is misspelled.

When you start thinking every straight male is at least a little bit gay, or could be after a few beers.

by Anonymousreply 1711/14/2012

When you recognize that on DL misspellings or misspoken words become a rather juvenile requirement for membership. You also remember when they came about, and still you refuse to participate.

Knowing the origin of graxy, jandra, WHET, ad infinitum does not make me better informed.

When you can just glance at a thread's title and predict how the responses will go. This is especially true with threads that brings race, religion or women into them.
