So, I was spamming with Anzy...and suddenly it hit me. People always say that Spam used to be better right?

Then you have others who say that the old-timers spammed the same way we did, but have matured over time and don't remember how silly they used to be themselves. Which is, to a degree, the truth.

So here's a small piece of what I think the difference between today and then is. As you can see, Anzac was very interested in the subject. =p I decided not to include all the humping. ;)

(Fetter fell down) zegt: YOU DELETED MY POST --Sov002/Sed: zegt: Threads stayed on a certain topic, you know?

(Fetter fell down) zegt: so, where are you from in the world - Page 5 - Parlancia Forums --Sov002/Sed: zegt: Coul've been Gav or Sunny --Sov002/Sed: zegt: WHY DO YOU ALWAYS BLAME ME?! Yarrrrrrr! (Fetter fell down) zegt: CAUSE YOUR OUT TA GET ME --Sov002/Sed: zegt: Lies Yarrrrrrr! (Fetter fell down) zegt: YOU CANT CATCH ME

Or for those too lazy to read it:

Basically, threads used to stay somewhat on topic, at least the threads we now call legendary did. People would spam, people would pull off all kinds of retarded and somewhat immature stuff, but at the same time there were threads that they fought for.

These days, you make a thread and after three pages the original message is forgotten, which is often quite normal and has been done in every forum year. The difference is that, back then, there used to be religions, and people would battle between different religions, trying to keep it alive and winning (by means of posts and pages).

What was the last religion started on GF? The Hypnotoads? And how long did it last? A week, maybe two. The only two threads still doing what mighty threads did back then is the Red Thread, Longest Thread Ever and (the only good "new" example) the Black Thread.

So, you think I got it right? Not that I have any doubt this won't last longer than a page, maybe two. And if it does last longer it'll just be consumed by Spam, but I guess that's how the flow goes.

Hey, this is the spam thread. What do you expect?

What was the last religion started on GF? The Hypnotoads? And how long did it last? A week, maybe two. The only two threads still doing what mighty threads did back then is the Red Thread, Longest Thread Ever and (the only good "new" example) the Black Thread.

Does that mean I am polytheistic?

Well... We all have different humor, I'm afraid many of the Spammers are Yankees. Talking about sex and love hearts all the time gets quite tiring. Shouting leet saying like "LIES" (even though from what I hear 'old skool' dont like leet, ironic...). Its all frustrating. People who say that Spam has to be done in a certain way need a bullet in their head. Because I'll spam how I want to spam, I'm not going to suck up to some guy who demands that I change, I dont want to have to talk about the same thing over and over again to sound funny. Then again I bet some prick is going to come in saying "n00bs do not deserve an opinion, go die nub, back in the dayz of 04, blah blah blah" Holy fecking huzza people! I didn't join in 04, want me to shoot myself? Thats my 2 pennies Sov, as you asked ;).

Well, I for one try to be impartial in my blame and my flaming abuse (if there can be such a thing).

But, wow, Sov. Spot on. Post number 6 and the purpose of the thread flies right out the window.
