I've always wondered this. I come on here and find that there is not a single person that is ridiculously unintelligent and somewhat informed about what is going on in the everyday world. But then I look around at everyone in my real life and they are all the exact opposite, ignorants that have no idea what is going on, obey the media, and have the "easy way out goal," get a job, have kids, and don't worry about the rest of the world. I don't think I have met a single Christian on here, everyone is atheist or agnostic (just like me). But in the real world around me, EVERYONE is Christian and don't even bother to question what they take as the truth.

It is the same in music. People I see on here challenge me in what they know about guitar theory and all but in the real world I dominate every guitarist I know in knowledge of guitar and just merely playing. This one kid was like "OMG! Children of Bodom are so 1337, their lead guitarist is God!!!" I then procceded to ask him what key "Are You Dead Yet" is in. They then told me that it didn't have a key, and Childreon of Bodom just plays music and doesn't worry about all that "technical bull****."

TS, yes a majority of the people here are whiney nihilist atheists that like black metal. but you must also remember that ... they're here. they're losers with greasy long hair that don't go to football games and don't go to parties. a few exceptions: gpderek, dirk gently, a few more i can't be bothered to remember. this forum is mainly for social outcasts. why else do you think everyone is so hostile and cruel here or on most internet forums? a lot of people here are a bunch of guitar nerds that get picked on at school by good-looking, popular people. like me!

just kidding.

start doing random basement checks or attend star trek conventions. UGers will come out of the woodwork.

Actually, there are plenty of Christians on here.

A lot of people on here are dumbasses.

Well this is a GUITAR WEBSITE (A lot of people seem to forget that ) So of course you will get a lot of likeminded people on here. We are connected by the guitar, and the guitar shows that you have a love of music, and having a love of music determines MANY aspects of your life. So we are all connected in that way, that's why a lot of us are similar.

no. i was kidding about me being attractive and popular. which is in fact true, i just didn't want to hurt your collective feelings.

and yeah, i wasn't trying to lump everyone in. but there are enough people like that that i think it's a reasonable observation. in a data chart observing a trend, there will be minor discrepancies, but i still say there's enough to see a positive coorelation.

becuase in real life, you say something stupid, and nobody cares too too much. here, you spell a word wrong via accidental typo, and you get flamed like your some huge idiot.

here, its assumed that the majority of people know something about music in depth, as opposed to the everyday people you meet who think penatonic is a medical term or something.

and as for the religion thing, well, there are alot of christians. and athiests. its just that outside the forum, i dont believe people really advertise there beliefs, like its seen here sometimes.

there are idiots here. you'll find them. im one of em. and im christian too. so you just found 2 things u say you never see here.

I think that your being a mod puts you in a good position to say these things.
And I mean, it's common sense.
People love to be something they're not. When they come on to these forums they don't have to be greasy-haired weirdos and social rejects. They can be whoever the fuck they want. So naturally they choose to be the bully. The thing they dread outside of the internet.

Human behavior, I'm telling you.

how the hell should i know?

all i know is that from my time here, i've seen a very, very consistent pattern. i haven't been around as much lately, but what do you know, i've also been engaging in other social activities more in the past two years than in the two before. i don't hate everyone in my class because they're conformists and like mainstream music or whatever the hell a lot of UG bitches about.
