Post A Dying Breed
There was a time when message boards were the primary form of communication, but now the focus seemed to have shifted toward social media. This is a shame because with message boards there was a layer of anonymity that I am beginning to suspect lead to greater discussions. If the Internet were nothing but names then people would feel less reluctant to engage in further conversation or just go all out with their identity politics thinking their opinions and beliefs are the sole ones in the world. While anonymity of message boards had trolls and arguments as are Internet staples. The more focus was on the post and not the person. Reddit is a haven of horrible people. 4chan is a haven for horrible people on their opposite end. Facebook is narcissistic. This is how the Internet ends. Total warfare.

I'm actually pretty sad that forums have really died out.
