The forum looks great on my Incredible as is.

What I dislike about syndication is that commentary is then distributed and conversations aren't captured. That's why I think RSS for a forum like this would hurt more than help. As an example of what this would be like, look at the times Sage has broadcast about an interesting thread on here. You get 50-70 message Facebook threads where little if any of the commentary filters back.

And yet he could still piss off people on the forum. Low-level troll for low-level folks, I guess. Either way, I felt like he broke up the monotony of the pretentiousness around here from time to time.

This world gives no quarter to characters like Kanye West and Asher Roth. What sort of growth and funnies can you expect of a world like that? The newjacks get scared off when they can't discuss how hot the new Kid Cudi or Drake single is. The pop music machine keeps moving and the kids go off to discuss their weirdo interests down other avenues, smoking American Spirits and drinking Miller High Life. There are taboos against "trolling" and "irony." Nothing is funny except for Robocop riding a Pegasus, which a certain someone seems more than happy to provide.


But honestly, I feel these "where did the old forum" threads are a waste of time. No quarter for these threads. NO QUARTER. (Or nickle or dime.)

Really, it's that kind of attitude that scares away new posters. Makes it feel like a clubhouse. No newbies allowed!

Yes! One of my all time favorite movies. That flick still has good replay value.

And I vote we don't hitch this wagon to the social network du jour. The forum has existed before that shit and continues on as they die off. What if the forum got adhered to myspace a couple years ago? Remember when half the NPF was on AOL IM? Facebook and twitter are just placeholders for the new social network coming in a couple of years. Imma ride with this forum, even if its just Neuro and I trading videos on Random Video thread #62. Run tell that!

this is true, Trav lost any originality he may have had in the end and was almost trolling himself...

his benefit lay in that he would post 20+ times a day and almost always would ruffle a feather or two encouraging further discussions..
