How has Britfa.gs impacted your life?

The worst thing for me, apart from the dodgy stock tips, is that I had a brief phase about eight or nine years ago of saying "don't have a teary" if someone was wound up. I'm fairly certain it's thanks to this place that my previous two phones were Moto Gs and I've picked up a fair few music recommendations, but you've slacked on the film recommendations front as the last good one I've heard about from you lot was Sightseers and that was a fair while back.

Well I went to nuisance and I think it's fair to say that was a waste of my Saturday night. No offence to purps, who was a perfect gent.

I haven't been here that long, but I agree with you on most things and I wonder if I'm being radicalised. So far, you have had no effect on my life whatsoever, but if I ever wind up as a daft militant wog, I want everyone to know it was your fault.

One of the ultimate end-goals for here is to have Angela Eagle mention us in parliament.

I'm not sure if "Sightseers was a good film" is something you can report someone to Prevent for.

I’m only here to applaud the Timpsons reference. I’m assuming the original image is still banned?

In the early days it gave me an alternative to Britchan, later it became my British banter community whilst working in all sorts of places with lacking social life options. You haven’t lived until you’ve shitposted in iq from the Borneo jungle.

I think you can get away with it as long as you don't come across as one of the try-hard meme-forcing Kathmandu lads who couldn't let go of the past. I kind of miss them but, then again, I also liked it when the Russians invaded and spammed fighter jets.

Read it during the long, boring, days of post-uni unemployment.

Also learnt that some people will argue for the sake of arguing about things they know nothing about and disengaging them is the best thing you can do because they will never change.

I've always found it baffling that the most obvious and lazy trolling will get a bite here rather than being ignored.

I agree, but I think sometimes people start in earnest and rather than realise they might not quite have gotten it right, or at least stop posting bad takes, people double down and think as long as they mash something in the box and hit submit last then they're going to be correct and win the 'debate'.

What's weirder is there have been times I've been wrong, said 'sorry think you're right' and people still try to carry it on.

I think some people just like arguing on the internet and it's not worth it.

In recent months I've found it particularly fun to post tongue in cheek responses here, all of us in the knowledge it's bullshit but deciding to give it a go anyway. The thing is, a lot of britfa.gs culture revolves around an appearance of cultured individuals when it reality it's mostly a bunch of bedsit dwelling pseuds. From time to time it's fun, perhaps even necessary, to remind us that.

I'm inclined to agree with this way of thinking. A lot of the time if I troll here I assume that the people who are "being trolled" aren't actually being trolled and their just counter-trolling my trollery.

Being anonymous this is also my main place to shout into the void. I need someone to hear what I have to say but sometimes it's something I wouldn't dare tell anyone IRL, and is probably a bad idea to even tell a healthcare professional, because that's just the sort of world we live in. It's cathartic in that way, it's nice if sometimes people agree with my deepest darkest thoughts and I find I'm not alone; likewise it's sometimes refreshing to have someone tell me "shut up you fuckwit, and here's why:"

I don't want to get sentimental and I wouldn't go as far as to say something like this place has "saved me" or anything, but I have been in some pretty depressed, lonely states before and the only people who haven't abandoned me are you lads. It hasn't profoundly affected my day to day life, other than a few in-jokes I'll accidentally let slip, but I'd definitely feel it's absence if the place ever disappeared.

But yeah in general I think the lazy, easy-bite trolling is largely our nerdy, pseudo-intellectual equivalent of pub banter. Or cybersex. I'm not sure which, maybe both.

Sage for meta bullshit.

Sometimes I lob a grenade into a thread or see what's the least I can post to set you lot off and then don't post again. I think my record for that is saying "I tend to wear nondescript clothing" on /poof/.

I think that's even more rewarding when it's unintentional. It's always a chuckle when I say something I thought rather innocuous, then come back in the morning to find a dozen posts.

I find myself using Ladm8 in real life.
Whenever anything relating to Gazza pops up I instantly think of ARE MOATY.
I was genuinely sad for those few days last year when the site went offline.
It's amazing really just how long i've felt entrenched here, like a sort of online home where I visit every day.

I've already forgotten the backup plan for if this place goes down again. All I remember is something about Discord.

Just moved 4 hours to Leeds, probably in no small part due to the West Yorks cabal that have secretly run .gs from the shadows since time immemorial.

This place was quite clearly Hullfa.gs about eight or nine years ago.

Yes bring it on you champions.

I'm not sure how that makes sense. If you managed to post that suggests you know about using Tab to focus controls. So you could focus back to the input box to complete it.

I actually tried using Tab before I replied to him. Once you've tabbed through all the buttons in the Reply box, it then tabs through every single clickable button in the thread. It would take hours. I believe him.

Actually it's just that it stopped moving, and it was already hovering over the reply button. So what do you do when your mouse stops moving? You wiggle it frantically and spam the buttons, obviously. But the buttons DID work, thus it submitted the post.

There was nothing I could do but watch, horrified, and dramatically express my feelings.
