    Default friendship on internet forums

    do you develop it? there seems to be a consistent theme with internet forums that I waltz on them and dispense advice and contribute to debates and some of the stuff I say is respected but I never form any FRIENDS4EVER liaisons. I was wondering if you go on forums and make lasting relationships or people respect stuff you say and engage with you but don't make friends with you or you go on forums and everyone ignores you, which one is most applicable? maybe I'll do a poll

    That's a good question and my answer is somewhat mixed. Me, Personally, IRL and otherwise, tend to form relationships that blaze up quickly with the passion of a million burning suns then burn out just as quick. I've made friendships online that have lasted quite some time, but a lot of them... as is common with me personally, and the internet in general, eventually dissolve for one reason or another. They often become bitter enemies... which is weird for me, because I don't make enemies, but on the internet... there are actually people who actively dislike me!

    i do dispense advice or comment some stuff but most of the time it gets ignored because it's either stupid or not funny. i'm seriously pretty much universally regarded as "that kid who always gets straight As. also he's pretty funny" irl. the reason for that is probably that i am pretty slow-witted for a straight A guy.

    i also can't debate, argue or express my opinions for shit on the internet and in real life too. so if i weren't a funny guy/drummer i'd probably be a lot less respected than i am now.

    so basically i'm a villager.
