    Default do you ever REGRET discovering forums?

    or do you think that as you're so technologically inclined, you would have inevitably found them sooner or later in this social networking era?
    Well, I open my eyes and I see things. I've seen spirits moving through the walls. I've seen a vortex coming through the wall. I've seen amorphous little balls of light bouncing all around in the front yard through the window. I've seen giant bugs on the floor. I was in a hotel room in Amarillo, Texas, and all I remember is standing on the bed and seeing the whole wall in front of me filled with lights that were [makes popping sound] popping like popcorn out of the wall. Then I'll wake up and I go "Wow, I was standing on my bed and staring at this wall."

    I'm surprised I found PD on my first day of using the internet for serious.

    Before PD, I would exclusively use the computer to play games or go onto pokemon.com or cartoonnetwork.com.

    But after my 12th birthday I decided to actually browse for the first time, found PD with ten minutes, lurked for a couple days (didn't know how to post). Made an account, posted with it for about a week and a half and deleted it. Then on April 11th I made my 'pichubro' account and the rest was history.

    Very similar tale. Although I learned the ropes of the internet via yahoo answers after I couldn't post.

    i spent my early internet years on veritaserum.com and pokeorder.com, ironically the latter was for yu-gi-oh cards.

    perhaps rayne stumbled upon a theory about the coming book 7 in early 2007 written by an ominous internet poster going under the moniker of 'padfoot' and think to himself 'will i ever read anything written by him again?'

    but probably he didn't because my theory was rejected by the site staff

    No, I don't regret discovering forums.

    Eh, I practically lived the most epic moments of my teenage-hood on forums. Like starting forum rebellions against admins.

    getting into message boards was quite seriously possibly the most beneficial thing that ever happened in my life

    "What else?" said the secretary.

    i was very much in the standard american working class social strata with the expected norms and values when i was young, message boards were the first social spheres i experienced where it was on some level 'cool' to know things or to be intellectual minded and know how to spell right etc, if i hadn't encountered that i likely wouldn't have encountered it anywhere else so i'd possibly be some working class scum, albeit probably more naturally intelligent than the average but still with similar characteristics.

    also lord stop your incessant feigning of being too cool for message boards who are you trying to impress

    sounds like someone's jealous of me being too cool for message boards

    pretty much this. even though im upper middle class, my peers were retarded around the age i started to use forums and message boards became the only place where i could exercise intellect that wouldve otherwise been lost in my average 12 year old indian day. also hanging out with programmers and getting hands on with technical shit related to forums or web sites got me interested in computer science which eventually became my choice of career path.

    I was in a bad state of depression until I found PD.

    I can't imagine what would have happened if I did not have some many positive experiences online to pull me out of it.

    that's probably not true, because you were like 12

    Of course I have no way to prove it, though I will say that I never had the suicide tendency because I disprove of suicide, however there was just some days where I just didn't want to get out of bed. I could find anything to bring a smile to my face until I happened to wander onto the Internet and was greeted by EM with a "". You can joke about it, but that reaction from a person really changed my life and proved that people can be glad that I exist.

    that's called being 12 years old, it occurs when hormones set in
