In response to OP:

I'm not really interested in the "lutz" returning b/c I think that whole thing just creates a lot of try-hards, but I do agree with a lot of what you said (and I think some of that is a result of trying to hard to create lutz anyways). I miss just having interesting conversations with people like we could have at Talk@ and if "lutz" or drama happens, it just happens naturally.

true
not saying there is zero; but compared to talk@ there is so much less now that I see worth talking about. I used to be a top ten poster (even #1 for a short time) on talk@ countwise, here-- not even close. Though some of that is due to padding by certain people with BS stuff, just like it got on talk@ near the end, I don't mean who is in the top as much as just I had an easier time finding stuff to talk about back in talk@ days.

I find that hard to believe. Everytime I've looked at OHG it didn't have much going on, hardly any threads at all. And way more douchebags-- the biggest "try-hards" than here actually.

Don't even know how you could say that since that place is "all about the lutz" and has little to do with community.

You're never going to see the diversity of threads here that you did at Rama because there isn't the diversity of people. I would estimate there are maybe 30 regular posters here. And although some new people join once in awhile they rarely stay long because this place talks almost exclusively in meme and if you're not in the know then you would have no idea what we're talking about. Take Twigglet for example. There is no one by that name here. If someone new were to read this thread they would have no way of knowing we're talking about Always Right. Same goes for Emma. There is no user by the name here. Same goes for Coyle? And that doesn't even count all the Black Hitler or OHG jokes.

I agree with all that Bender.

And I hate that name changing shit. That confuses me and I've been here forever, I can imagine for someone new.

That's why I pushed Jude so hard to add an alias field under our avatars that tracked users' previous usernames. But he made it editable so of course some people used it for LUTZ instead.

nah, actually don't even care about that anymore (why would I since I don't post)
but your response is the OHG-lite version of douchebaggery that I'm talking about, always trying to start drama where this is none just to try to make a bad joke
