i'm seeing more and more threads asking philosophical questions. like what does your life mean and such other things.

whats happened, in my lurker days, and in my shorter time as a member, it was all silly threads with random points and no actual use but for amusement.

i'm confused, explain the philosophy thing to me?

A lot of the funnier threads were banned and everyone else started thinking they're smarter. Then the flaming was cracked down on, so we all had to start acting more uhh... mature. And there you go.

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

Probably because half of us are trying to work our way through warnings of one kind or another. Two more weeks. ..

The UG Awards exist only to instill me with existential doubt.


For me, the 60's ended that day in 1978...

Willies. Fuck the lick and fuck you too.

Because threads in the pit are all based around forum trends. Someone started a successful thread about a loosely philosophical topic, so other users, whether they consciously do it or not, start threads asking similar questions regarding loosely philosophical topics.

That's why we had all those phases other people mentioned.

It's summer and it's generally a time where alot of people grow up and reflect since they tend to be more lonely at this stage in the year because they have an exorbitant amount of time to waste.

Seems like college educated users getting more recognized. We have like 3 or 4 people who are philsophy majors with degrees that post, then majors in physics and other subjects that they enjoy debating.

Plus there's always been a huge anti-religious bias in the Pit that helped.

I'd make an Edie Brickell reference but I'm afraid no one would get it.

There's always been threads like that.


I bet I would get it


Oh and I enjoyed the story about your life that you PM'd me months ago. Don't feel like PMing back

For every 134 threads on pedophiles or Amish people, there are 3 threads on life/purpose/etc.
The content of this signature is pretty much irrelevant

Oh, and also there was a HUGE creationism thread that got locked a while back. At first there were a good deal of creationists here. That thread soon became a hangout for a bunch of users who would wait around (myself included) for a creationist to come in and just gang up on. To be honest, nobody really knew anything about biology. They'd just take their arguments directly from Talk Origins. The Pit was all about debating evolution for a long time.

Quote by TheBurningFish

Exactly what I was going to post.


But yeah TS, I sort of know what you mean. Not with just thread starters, but I've noticed a lot of threads get completely taken by philosophical debate more often recently (whether it's good debate, or especially interesting however is another topic entirely).

Fortunately I am one of the guys who's doing a philosophy degree and actually enjoys arguments rather than just finding them irritating and pretentious. Though I do also find that quite often too.

It's not as easy to get banned or warned as it used to be.

To be honest with you, I wish it was a bit more silly. Maybe even create a Pit sub-forum where EVERYTHING (minus too shockingly stuff, of course) would be cool? Even just pointless threads that could be. But rules are rules and we will go with them.
This will start a RIOT! in me

Well, i've been banned numerous times up until around mid 2010.

Although i did get banned once and was then sent a pm saying that i'd been banned for being "too rebellious".

Pointless is as pointless does...

Do you really want a thread about how some 14 year old stuck his dick in a pencil sharpener? Because that's what pointless amounts to in the Pit.
