Datalounge is the only message board I post on

It's the only one I post on, as well.

For me, it's a manageable board. It's not really very big.
Now try and read an entire Reddit thread or post on Reddit- it's like yelling into the darkness. Important threads have 3-4,000 replies.
And other boards make you use your profile name for posting. I like the relative anonymity here - although you can still be exposed with the Ignore function.
The only thing is - I wish there was a downvote for posts. People are using WW as a like button, and it wasn't intended for that. But we need to show disfavor with other posts - there's no way to do that except FF, which is limited or to Ignore the person.
Down or dislike button is sorely needed on this board.

R3 - Amen to that. If they just provided a filter to remove all the video game posts, dankmemes (never funny), and people's incessant cat and dog photos/videos, it would be a much better experience.
Reddit is now 25% video game and associated topics - just move it to its own site or something.

I've been taking a break from Reddit the past few months, so most days I exclusively post on DataLounge.
|by Anonymous||reply 8||01/10/2021|
A query on some odd subject sometimes lands me in Reddit. It can be good for some very specific thing, but is a big bewildering to navigate ina general way.
Data Lounge is compact enough that I can scroll through recent posts or updates in a reasonable time and stumble upon some interesting things, laugh or shake my head at some old DL favorite themes, and appreciate the knowledge and considered responses of some posters among the general randomness.
It's the only place I post.

DL is really gay internet heaven. It has a wide variety of topics to discuss - most gay in tone, but not always - from often knowledgable posters. It can be fun, serious, witty, irritating, informative, frustrating. The anonymous nature gives you freedom, but, as other have said, good DL sleuths can and do expose trolls that over do it.
I love it. And, yes, it's the only board I post on.

I find that it's possible to debate with the reasonable people in the decent threads. But I just ignore the rabid people in the increasing number of rabid threads here.

I've gone to Reddit, bit it just seems so jumbled. I love the neat and tidy interface of DL.
You read those stories about message boards radicalizing their posters to do crazy shit. I just can't imagine DL radicalizing a bunch of us to do shit...

R2 I thought W/W is a like button! What is it supposed to be? I admit to being new to DL (a year) but how else do I let posters know I appreciate their comments?

[quote] I thought W/W is a like button! What is it supposed to be?
In the old days when a post received sufficient W&W votes, the post was placed on the left hand column of the main page. It was sort of a "hall of fame" for posts.

That's the only way other than simply replying to their posts to let them know of your appreciation. It's effectively a "like button" now.

DL is the only place I post, and I find it extremely uncomplicated to navigate, and also extremely satisfying as a community (love you guys). And, for better or worse, DL is the default way that I discover breaking news. I will click on provided links, but I do not start with those news outlets. I start here. A spoonful of pointlessly bitchy sugar makes the medicine go down.

I occasionally still post on survivor sucks (I used to post there more than I currently post here), I used to post on r/GenderCritical before it shut down. I used to post on celebitchy until Kaiser came on as a writer /mod and everyone collectively lost their damn minds over there.
Now it's just here and Kfarms.

The nice part is that topics and threads from larger boards (e.g. Reddit) are copied here so we can discuss on a smaller scale and with our own perspective.
I'll say it again - Reddit is just monstrously huge. I don't see how you can really discuss one-on-one when there are 4,000 replies.
And DL has a similar problem as Reddit in that there are some people here obsessed with a handful of topics - Instahoes, Meghan Markle, porn - but it's easier to avoid than the onslaught of gaming, star wars, anime, cat pics and other shit that overloads Reddit.
Reddit does have good porn though.

DL is my main message board.
I do a few local Reddits plus of course the plentiful pages of Reddit cock. And I follow NextDoor, partly for good info and partly for the LOLZ of reading fifty and sixtysomething racist fraus shriek constantly.

It's pretty obvious that many DLers don't use any other forum or social media, they often understand even the basics of the internet, they're frequently fooled by obvious trolls and can't even use Google without hurting themselves.
It's a mistake for people to get their information from DL. Nearly every day I see what should be an informative thread filled with lies, nonsense, misleading information, trolling, and mistakes that no one notices, and outright hostility if anyone corrects the mistake or lie.

It's OK to get the basic outline of a news story here, but then you have to follow up on your own.
What I'm noticing in the past few days is OPs (wanting to discuss a news story) with no links. Tired of that.
The opposite would be quoting an entire news story in the OP. Posters don't know how to synopsize.

DL and another private board I've been on for 20 years. It's pretty much a friends group of North Americans who found each other through a love of home décor.
