I mean, really, it just seems like there are people who come on here that are not here for fun but for competition, blood, vengeance. Is that you? Are you a SJW? Do you need to defend any type of "felt" social infraction on the Datalounge? Please share why.
Do you think some people take this place too seriously?

I hate the Gestapo posters, they must approve every single topic on the board, telling others to ff or block posters. They demand muriel to close threads and ban posters, they blame everyone who disagree with them of being trolls, bots, Russians, shills, PRs, etc. They totally ruin threads when they start personal attacks against the suspected troll. They believe about a conspiracy of an army of people who dedicates their entire lives to try to convince and manipulate others in an anonymous board. They are Fucking ridiculous, repetitives and boring, they ruin the fun for everyone

Meh. I've been at the DL for over 20 years. I'm not here every day, I'm here when I feel like it. Yes, there are some people who take it too seriously.
Some on the Right, some on the Left, some from outer space. Because the DL will allow anyone to say anything, it has always attracted a certain percentage of crazies.

The Tumblr fraus brought all their shit here. The snarky turned to nasty. The racism went through the roof and they started to try and officiate on who could post. They then also honed in on specific posters and brought all the drama. I have seen some fucked up racist comments that they try to pass as humour. It's not funny or entertaining.

I've been on DL for about 6 yrs. I was never a 'blocker'. I was mostly amused at people getting triggered over opposing ideas or perhaps a comment I had made (I'm a political independent and give both sides kudos and both sides disapprovals). However, recently I've lost patience with the out of control vitriol and the attacking ( rather than discussing) of a very outspoken few. So I have blocked them when reasoning fails. Its sad.

I find some of the identifiable posters are the most obnoxious. Sylvia Fowler is an unrepentant asshole, for example. I mean, you can admire the fearlessness of behaving like that day after day after day, but the underlying pathology is astounding. Perfect example, as cited upthread, of "Maybe online, they overcompensate for how they feel in real life."
Like so many others, I block far more than I used to. The site is kind of out of control on a low burn but on a lot of different fronts, so cumulatively it's never been so unpleasant with so much to wade through. I stopped paying, even the minimal amount they charge.

I think adding the block feature was the beginning of the end of the DL.
It has allowed the timid to filter the site into the weak tea they require.
Before, if you couldn't stand the shit being thrown you had no choice but to be humiliated or quiet. Loved that about the place. The assertive and witty ruled and the timid hid.
Now, the timid rule. The assertive are ineffectively shamed and the witty left. This has NOT added to the quality of posts, but they sure are homogenized.

Agree. Blocking posters has nothing to do with being timid. It has everything to do with avoiding the wasting of time with off-topic posts. It's annoying when two people get into a fight on a thread; they're both so desperate to "get the last word", they keep interrupting an otherwise good discussion about a topic. And I don't want to read posts by trolls who get off on insulting people and correcting grammar. There are enough bullies in the real world; I go online to briefly escape the real word. It's ironic.

There's a series of threads on here where one lady who is either a nasty troll or actually mentally ill has shown up every so often to be really disruptive and awful. She had been screaming at a guy who was terminally ill for being "too melodramatic" and "stupid and disappointing" and "fucking up big time." Several of us asked her to stop derailing the threads, but she would come back after a little while and try a new troll tactic. I said one thing about it and put her on ignore and never said anything again.
This morning I discover she's concocted some story about how I alone singled her out to ruin her life, and a second person made up a story about how I personally had ruined threads by repeatedly engaging with her. I hadn't, and when I briefly said so, I got yelled at. Did the crazy lady? No, not really.
I mean, her trolling crosses a line, even here on Datalounge. Maybe some things aren't being taken seriously enough. Maybe it's time people admitted that we have a lot of mentally ill people around here and humoring them isn't helping anything.

R56, I was the "second person" you mentioned above. I'm sorry that I accused you of carrying on with the melodramatic troll. I assumed it was you because after you called her out (rightfully so), she attacked you, and then she was subsequently criticized. You were right to ignore her. (You didn't miss out on anything.) And obviously a lot of people agreed with you because they took up the fight after you bowed out.

Socially isolated, it's a place to catch up, relax, amuse oneself.
Every so often there's interesting info one learns about, like a recent gay history thread. Some that always amuse me, like Larry King.
It is easy enough to avoid the predictable screaming about Israel or circumcision. Or threads that don't interest you, like GG. Political threads are for venting and not perceptive.
But usually even the good threads devolve into some people trying to impress others by trying to be bitchy and witty but are just crass.
That's when one leaves them. And that's what you're referring to OP i think.
