i mean we're supposed to be grown people.

if i don't like something my self, i don't see how forcing people not to express their opinions would help.
if it seriously bothers me that much, why not just use that as a motivation to work on myself/ care a little bit more about my health/ fix my diet, etc..
Well said. We're all a bunch of special snowflakes, aren't we

No one here wants to or is incapable of socializing in real life so there will come a time when I just stop posting on here.

on the locking threads etc.

people need to come to terms that life contains a lot of stuff you don't want to hear its full of different opinions and they aren't always something you agree with. you only grow as a person through challenging your old ways of thinking and you won't do that if it never meets resistance. keeping opinions censored is a sure fire way to keep you stuck in old habits.

I would meet up with you no problem if you were local and capable of doing it.

All my attempts to meet Brits here have failed.

wow I didn't notice it was this late already! I don't think this site will have much people who are still up to reply to me and I will probably be going back to try to sleep later on too.

My theory is that many of those posters were awkward, young millennials who grew out of it, got jobs, and found their "tribe".

SAS has always been made up of mainly mildly shy people (age 16-26 approx) going through growing pains- teenage angst, dating for the first time, worried about their looks, becoming an adult, going off to college, being without mom and dad for the first time, finding a job for the first time, blah blah blah blah blah.

Eventually they get a job and get a boyfriend/girlfriend, so they have no time or need for SAS anymore. In the past those ones would be replaced at the same rate by fresh new 19 year olds.

Now that we aren't getting a new crop of teenage angsters, we are left with only the chronic/long term cases who have more hardcore problems or for whatever reason are extremely attached to this website.

I'm new to the site. I guess you could call me a chronic case. Have had difficulty with social relationships my entire life. This forum seems really nice and genuine though, which was why it attracted me. Discord channels tend to be a bit chaotic, I often get talked over or (unintentionally) ignored. I just can't handle fast-paced group conversations. I also like how this place feels like a real community, unlike say reddit, where people are pseudo-anonymous, and you don't really get to know each other very well. Usernames are constantly forgotten, you never seem to have a 'real' conversation with anyone.

I love how everyone's very positive, don't read if you'd rather keep it that way.



 
I hate to be the "reality" but I fear at least a few of those old posters probably got worse or died, I mean the law of averages says they didn't all get better overnight & go frolicking off like bambi in heat into the big bad world.






And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,
A poor player that strut's and fret's his hour upon the stage and is heard no more,
It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

I would assume there are many (especially young people) who don't even own a PC anymore. I have fiddled around a bit with this forum on my Kindle Fire (7" screen) and the experience was just horrible. Even if the screen were bigger the lack of a mouse and a keyboard makes forums painful.

Maybe there are other sites that do the same thing? FB groups, Reddit, Youtube, blogs, ...

I don't like the way Facebook groups are organized. It is just one long stream of posts, no sub forums, no organization, no finding a post that wasn't posted in the last 2 days.

Traditional forums in general, do have a better format than reddit and facebook. While reading this thread, I moved over to Reddit to check out the social anxiety section, and the layout is not really all that great on a laptop, I've seen the style before,it has it's uses, but I prefer the 'ol phpbb style form. It allows for so much more control in your posts, it also allows creativity so you can format your reply as you so desire.



"Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay."

Sure, reckon you would be better off doing something else with your time rather than posting here

Don't just do something, sit there !
