For some weird reason, I was shocked at a gossip post stating Carly Simon once seduced her own son.
Another was a thread revolving around some poster who just had wild sex with some musician. And then shortly after, like maybe one week, the musician died. The thread went totally wild after that. (Forgot the musician's name though)
An amusing shock....a thread about some guy who had a possum take up residence in a drawer. It was a typical thread until he actually posted a photo of the possum in the drawer.

This post from the Elias Koteas Troll:
"What's so bad about wanting to drink Elias Koteas's piss? LOTS of people are into piss. There's something about a hot manly DILF type that always makes me want to do dirtier stuff with him than I would ever do with a pretty boy. When I think about Elias Koteas, I think about the abject. The wastes of the human body, shit, piss, sweat... it's all very natural and it's an unavoidable part of what gives him his masculine appeal. Let me ask you a Q: can you really imagine someone like Zac Efron or Taylor Lautner shitting, pissing or sweating? Of course not because they're airbrushed, manscaped, asexual Ken dolls; their assholes are probably sealed up! The guy-next-door earthiness of Elias Koteas makes me think about his natural, male bodily functions. It's very easy to picture him squatting over a toilet bowl, or unbuttoning his jeans to whip out his daddy dick and take a long steaming leak. Or simply coming home from work in the evenings with a layer of dried sweat on his crotch, taint and armpits. I see no reason not to integrate these very real, very natural aspects of his masculinity into my erotic fantasy life. I love the thought of kneeling before him, having him roll back his foreskin and make me suckle gently on his mushroom head, which is fat, purple, and carries an ever-so-slight whiff of fishy sweat. Do I have an emotionally distant father? You betcha! But this thread is about men who look and act like men, and these are the things I associate with male sexuality."

I wouldn't say SHOCKED ... but recently I clicked on a thread that had a link to a YouTube video of people committing suicide by leaping from the Golden Gate Bridge. There were 0 comments in the thread: just the link. I watched it thinking it would be a news piece about GGB suicides, but no, it was a montage of people actually leaping. It was deeply disturbing.
I moved on to other threads, but a few minutes later felt I needed to go back to post a comment - but by then the thread had been deleted.

The Jani Lane death was a shock. I'd followed the 'I had sex..' thread with fascination, and I guess was hugely entertained by it. When he died I felt bad - for him, and the OP who started it all. Not many on Datalounge can say they killed someone with a thread.

Only in bad ways for a very long time.
In the good old days, on a regular basis, and for great reasons (stunning gossip, biting wit a la Mrs. Betty or Patsy Ramsey, or intelligence that made it feel like getting a free grad school seminar, and a place where people didn't see everything through a hetero filter).
For the last six years or so, the shocks have been more disappointment at the homophobia on here. I don't know if it's the influx of straights (which I admit I hate) or just self-hating posters or generic internet morons, but it's depressing.
It's still (minimally) a gayer place than I've found.

The level of vitriol can be shocking. When I first started reading here, I found the misogyny really shocking, because I assumed that gay men would be more enlightened, having been oppressed themselves, but then I learned the sad secret that many white gay men are even more bitter towards women than straight men because they feel locked out of the entitlement they feel they deserve due to the assumption of male privilege. Lots of racists, too. I found that shocking for the same reason. I've since learned not to assume that because one is from an oppressed group that they are also enlightened about equality, and that they would have solidarity with fellow second class citizens and wouldn't grab the brass ring of privilege at the first chance if they could, in fact would leverage whatever privilege they felt they did have, in terms of being male or white or fill in the blank social status, and use it to bludgeon whomever they considered beneath them on the social pecking order. Log Cabin Republicans anyone?

I was shocked to find that lesbian drama, humorlessness, rigid enforcement of secret ever-changing verbal rules, sexual prudery, endless processing of feelings and slights (whether real or imagined) and the complete inability and unwillingness to understand a man's point of view were not invented stereotypes.
It was actually true and, more disturbing than anything else, their knee-jerk hostility towards men and all things male - especially towards gay men - was, and is, horribly real. To my dismay, their almost visceral hatred of gay men is tolerated here on the DL, a site originally founded by and for gay men - it's shocking.
I've been here for a long, long time. I fully expected the lesbians to integrate into the DL without much trouble after the separate Lesbian Forum was shut down. That didn't happen and it still hasn't happened after all these years.
Before the DL, I had only known nice, normal, educated, professional, successful lesbians. I found out that they may not be so normal after all.

Well said, R65. I agree.
I find it shocking how people use and seem to mean "Die in a grease fire". Because someone said something offensive? I'm equally shocked at how bitter so many posters are. Filled with hatred. I can understand being a little catty, but it's way over the top, directed at everyone, even and mostly themselves. I found that discouraging. I love the gay community and sometimes I just back away from a thread. Being witty is great. Being cruel and vicious is not - there's little point in hurting everyone you come into contact with. I generally won't even respond to any comment that spews nastiness. I do wish for a stronger sense of support and community here.

I've never observed such hatred toward people with HIV and AIDS before. Coming from other gays, it's heartbreaking.
The amount of cruelty on DL has increased over the years, but I believe that's a function of growth. More posters inevitably means more loonies. I've learned which types of threads to never open; it's made my time here more pleasant.
Of course, there are also links to genuinely shocking news stories, but I'm not sure if I should include those because they did not originate on DL.

"Die in a grease fire" is just an expression. Anyone with a modicum of sense knows that and an adult shouldn't have to be told. It's a gossip site on the internet, no one's breaking out the kerosene.
As for all the DL "hatred" that seems to be blowing your fragile little mind - meh. You'll have to cull the real DL posters from the batshit Stormfront, batshit Westboro and batshit Michfest people who regularly spew hate around here these days. Good luck with that.
This website was founded as a gay men's gossip, politics, news, humor, bitchiness and general subject discussion site. With its unmoderated, anonymous format, it is definitely not a support group. It's more like the anti-support group. The DL is not where you come to get your emotional needs met, that's what your family and friends are for.
There must be sites that hew closer to your idea of how everyone ought to be and what everyone should be doing for you. Either that, or you could adjust your expectations about what role this, or any other gay men's gossip website, is supposed to fulfill for you.
