MacNN Lounge

post #1 of 46
Thread Starter 
Is it just me or has the Lounge totally gone downhill. Nothing good is posted there anymore. It's all stupid stuff like "does mountain dew kill your sperm" or "will 60s (or 80s) music ever make a comeback" or "will 90s music ever go away". Every day I realize more and more how much better AI is.

I never liked MacNN more than AI, but at one point I did like them. Now the people that post there are just stupid and annoying. Also, there's too many different catagories. I like AI's 9 much better than all the ones MacNN has.

Frankly, I haven't seen much at EITHER AI or NN to make me really interested of late..


That being said, we're better, because, hell, we don't have admins with sticks up their asses...

&lt;come on, gimme some love here. I could be DEMONHOOD, forchrissake&gt;

That's true. That's one of the reasons why most of my posting has stopped.

Dont worry Jonathan, we love ya! I think that the relaxed atmosphere is what keep people here. Unfortunately when there is a drought of rumors, thing tend to slow down aroung here.

Aren't you concerned that Mountian Dew kills your sperm? <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" />

Oh, well... I don't drink Dew. I find it repulsive.

If I drank it on a regular basis I guess I would, but I don't so I don't care.

I have a feeling after MacWorld Tokyo passes, it'll all ramp up again around here. We won't have to talk about gays and religion any more. Once again we can return to baseless rumors of the G5!

No, you can have a different name shown than your login name. Yours would remain "_alliance_" to log in with, but we'd see something else.

People have been saying "the Lounge has been going downhill" every few months for at least the two years I've been around MacNN. It's always the same: John Doe starts frequenting the Lounge, he finds some cool people he likes, then some of the cool people disappear and more people join, many of whom are idiots. He starts pining for "the old days." Repeat cycle.

Nice cheap shot. I think Demonhood does a fine job; he's one of the few voices of sanity over there. I've found him to be fair-minded and a classy person. It's easy to keep things "relaxed" over here when you have what, one-fifth the member base? Less?

Twasn't a cheap shot.

I just think he's got a little too much of a bent on certain things... what can I say. It is, certainly, a much crazier place to mod... and I'm sure I wouldn't be up to it..

That being said, i don't dig the style.

Well I've been going to MacNN just as long as I've been going to AI (Feb. 2000) and you're right that good members come and go there but overall the past 6 months have been filled with stupid topics. I'd take more posts from Ca$h over some of them.

I'm not sure if it's really him, but he's been registered here for a while. I remember when AI came back he registered and said that he wanted to see what Ai was like, or something like that.
