Web client. I'm sure it was just glitching momentarily or I did something wrong. It tends to work just as you say.

Are you using Telnet or the web client? That doesn't sound right, either way. 

 

Goto Next should take you through a loop of all the rooms with new messages.

I've been relying on the Goto Next button and the last few times I've visited it only showed me a few rooms. This time it showed me everything I've been missing since October, lol. I guess I'll stop relying on the Goto Next button.

I tend to suspect operator error - but there is no doubt that sometimes Citadel misbehaves. Ig even admits there is a lot of legacy code in there that causes strange behavior - so maybe you had some alignment of the stars...

I really miss when we had just a bit more traffic ... The wrong type of person is sure to show up. 

 



Hello everyone! It's been an absolute blast reading through the last few years of lobby traffic. 

PD: My apologies for our last few interactions. I was going through a few somethings and lashed out at you. Please forgive. 

Dave: Similarly, I owe you an apology as well. 

It has been an interesting few years. I really should have gotten over here sooner.

Thanny, I am Jack's complete lack of surprise that I find you apologizing for an offense against me that I did not even realize you had committed. I have a vague recollection of us having a difference of opinion in the distant past regarding politics... maybe about gun control? The last couple of years have been brutal on partisan divides - and I certainly took some hard lines and ramped up my rhetoric to a more aggressive and hostile volume than I have in the past... but... I don't hold grudges, and on the relative scale of thing - I did not realize you felt estranged from me to a degree that would require any apologizes. A handful of long time friends got blocked by me on social media over the last couple of years - a very unusual and extreme step for me. You were not, to my knowledge, one of them. 

So... water under the bridge. We'll pick up from BEFORE whatever encounter did not go as pleasantly as possible. :) Welcome home. 

You *should* have gotten here sooner. We need to build up a strong core base and get some traffic generated here. It is dying on the vine.

It does feel like home. On one screen I have a citadel, on the other screen I have a brand new C64 game rolling. I could only wish for this level of multitasking in the past. 1987 me would squee like a little girl to see my current setup and capabilities. What you're doing here is great. The blush came off the Facebook rose a long time ago. Hopefully they mismanage the Oculus opportunity as much as everything else they've touched.

I'm of the firm opinion that I've gotten everything I wished for prior to the age of 17 except a Porsche 959. 

I could probably get you a couple more "callers" but they'd be mostly women which would mess up the locker room, sausage-fest vibe we have going on.

I don't know, Brenda Daniels had bigger balls than any of the guys who called Citadel BBSes, and probably could have kicked all our asses.

I was thinking about Brenda lately, I wonder how things worked out for her. When I dropped Jerry off at her place, she wasn't ready to be seen by me so I never even had the chance to meet her properly. Likely, my overuse of crappy 80's phrases like, "that's Gay" made her shy away from me, just another brat who would be judging her. My loss likely. Her tech collection around her home was very impressive.

 

I Brenda Daniels'ed myself on Facebook. I changed my pw to a long string of gibberish, copied and pasted it in and approved it. I'm glad I did it, it makes me think twice before going back for the dopamine fix and cute animal pics.

I saw that. Guess who is Jack's O-Face right now? 

I mean, I've been telling them they were headed for DIGG 2.0/MySpace territory for the last several years - and just a few days before this article hit, I had made a post - tagged Facebook in it, and noted... 

"It isn't just me, although I was among the first - but traffic on Facebook in general has had a HUGE decline. You're starting to feel the affects of your bad choices the last several years..." 

Then, like, 2 days later, this article hits. 

And trust me... For a few months I've been making posts and telling them, "Go ahead, fucking BAN ME FOR LIFE... I'm exactly the kind of user you need, who built your strength - and when you lose me, all the LURKERS will follow - because there won't be any fucking DRAW to your site." 


Everything in social media I've ever abandoned, all the way back to Citadel - was on life support shortly after my departure. And... don't interpret that wrong - I'm just frequently the FIRST rat to jump ship - the canary in the coalmine. It isn't that my leaving is what kills the site - it is that when I leave, something has gone wrong enough or changed enough that soon a lot of OTHER people are going to leave too. I fucking hate how people interpret comments like these on my part as arrogance or hubris or an inflated sense of self-worth. 

I guess I tend to do this with music scenes, fashion, technology. 

FPGA for example, is an incredible technology - but the COMMUNITY surrounding it has gone downhill as it has gone more mainstream - in particular as it has attracted tons of Generation Nintendo users. I was very active - now I avoid them all. I still enjoy the technology - evangelize for it - but the community sucks balls now. 

I like novel things and tight communities but I hate experiences that attract the societal average - because - the average of society is a pretty base, ignorant, group-think infested thing. 

Facebook is in trouble. A big part of it is that Apple changed their rules on how apps can track and target advertising - that is the financial problem. But the other problem is that what I am describing - lots of other, less vocal people are kind of hitting the same wall and going, "this is boring, it annoys me, it isn't rewarding - I'm not getting the same dopamine hit I was from it..." and so they're looking for a new high, a new hit, a new drug. Part of that is that Facebook fucked with the formula based on their partisan bias - and it alienated roughly half their audience... and as that audience jumped ship... the other half found THEIR motivation for logging on diminished, too... because there was no one to fight with. That happens - too. The reason Facebook was at such a peak of traffic and content the last 4 years was driven largely by escalating conflict. This was a problem all the way back for Citadel too... What happened after huge periods of intense conflict? Traffic to that Citadel would just drop off a cliff - at least for a while. The problem with Social Media is that when your site implodes like this - there is some OTHER site ready to pick up the slack... the way MySpace collapsed and Digg took off, and Digg collapsed and Twitter and Facebook jumped ahead. We kind of had a circuit of a half dozen or so Citadels that kept passing the torch around. Social media doesn't do that, it replaces, and you never get your turn back at bat. You become Digg or MySpace or Google+. 

So depending on how far down the bottom is - Facebook *may* be a deadman walking - at least as we've always known it. It may end up like Digg, AOL and Yahoo... a "Once we were the top dog," news aggregate. 

They're in trouble though - and I love it. Especially being that they banned me from advertising this site because at first they labeled it a "hate site" and then when I proved that wasn't the case they called my postings "Spam."

Noice. It's good work, if you can get it. 

 

Facebook's shares sunk 45% in value since the beginning of September. So things are pretty good.

They're tanking so hard. Google just moved forward with making Android app tracking similar to the policy for iOS app tracking - which means Facebook's biggest revenue stream just hit an iceberg. 

They're in *serious* trouble.

Mine are Jack in the Box tacos, but they're plentiful.

I don't know what you could possibly owe me an apology for, but you were forgiven faster than instantly.  It helps that I was right all along. ;)

Well... glad to see you back - that was far too long of an extended absence. I ended up with a 6 day suspension for saying "I'm going out to suck on a fag, now..." 

from Facebook, about... 8 or 9 days ago. I dunno. I'm going to give them a 30 day minimum suspension from my content and traffic to remind them who owns Bartertown. 

Or, I may just shut down my account - because... Fuck those guys - and they're on the ropes. No better time to kick 'em in the balls than when they're already on the ground crying tears over their $200 billion drop in value. 

Aldeberto's sounds familiar. Are you still in Sacramento? Is it a Sacramento place? Where is it? 

Jack's tacos are an EXCELLENT Taco Tuesday twofer for 2/20/2022 - they even come as a two-fer. 

I approve.

By the way... 

Do you think Facebook or Anglophobes - that they have some unreasonable hatred for the use of ACTUAL English words... 

Or that they're homophobes... 

Because... 

I got a 6 day ban for either saying that I was going to go out and smoke a cigarette... 

Or that I was a closeted married white guy heading out to a truck stop or rest area to perform fellatio on a gay man. 

Which you would think they would CELEBRATE with their focus on gender fluidity, sexual preference fluidity, and pro-LGBT sentiment. 


It doesn't *get* more pro-LGBT than saying you're going to go out and suck off a dude, when you're a dude... 

Does it? 

So, I'm confused as to what they found offensive in my statement that I was going out to suck on a fag. 


Either I was going to have a smoke... or I was going to blow a dude. 

Thoughts?

"Feeling inclusive, might go suck off a fag..." 

"Facebook has suspended your account for 6 days for hate speech..." 

If I am in fact, a FAG, which would be indicated by sucking one off - than how can it be hate speech? Isn't it me taking OWNERSHIP of hate speech, taking it AWAY from those who hate, like black people using the word "nigger"? 

(Which you can say here - without getting a ban, or worrying about Neil Young trying to get you canceled from Spotify... I'd even let you say it in a connotation I disagree with using it - though I'd admonish you and call you ignorant for using it that way, most likely. Because we let adults use language to communicate here, even if it offends.) 

The other alternative is that I was using a common and well understood English phrase to say I was going out for a smoke. 

Facebook is upset because they think I really meant something ELSE by using it. Or because I said it and it made them THINK of the other way the word is used... 

Either way... basically, suspension for *thought* crime.
