    What to Do When Overwhelmed at Enturb

    Been around for months now. Posting anonymously because I feel I need to.

    I know that on the internet drama comes and goes and it's supposed to be "just the fucking internet", but a lot of people have committed so much to fighting the cult...so there's emotional investment here for them.

    In the past when shit has hit the fan in places I've dwelt online, I've had to leave. I don't want to do that with Anonymous. Yeah, I have another place I help the cause from, but this is THE SITE to find out what the hell is going on where, with who, and how. And I want to contribute here when I truly feel I can.

    TL;DR: Is anyone else where I'm at? Has anyone been there? How do you manage to keep going when you're inwardly freaking out at what will most likely pass at Enturb?

    Sorry if this doesn't belong here. Didn't know where else to put it. Just thought maybe it might be good for stressed out anons and friends.

    Seriously, go to your local protest and help out. Deal with their drama. Decentralization is a beautiful thing.

    I live with it, usually. When I'm really sick of it, I sign off for a week or two to calm down.*

    *If you so much as contemplate making a post "explaining why you're leaving Enturb" or shit like that, though, you deserve what you get. And you will get a lot of things I will not specify here.

    No, no, no I won't flounce. Stuff my ass with >9000 firecrackers if I ever do. I'd totally understand.

    You demonstrate a lack of lulz.

    I suggest porn.

    Flouncing sucks. Slinking away meekly because of your Fair Game letter sucks. Not reporting that shit sucks. All the drama here sucks.

    Create a new sockpuppet account that doesn't have to live up to any "reputation" (ITG or moralfag or lulzfag or whatever) that you have. It helps. Until we have the choice in every forum to post Anonymously, it's the only way to escape your troublesome identity. And brother, identity is holding you back.

    Re: What to Do When Overwhelmed at Enturb

    I already felt enturb was a shit hole :D Too much crap to dig through.

    I generally lurk enturb irc, and stick to my local forum etc. We have enough drama and bawwwing there, but as it's my local group, gotta actually solve it unlike bawwing here :p

    + have some candy. Candy fixes all ^___________________^

    Re: What to Do When Overwhelmed at Enturb

    I've seen forums tear themselves apart over drama. Stupid shit.

    Go do something else and it will come to a conclusion. The more people that do this, the faster it ends.

    Or make a "Why I'm leaving Enturb:The Nature of Anonymous" thread. I love those.

    Re: What to Do When Overwhelmed at Enturb

    I've been having more fun with the Real Life aspect of this. Been getting some decent time on the bike passing out fliers in different neighborhoods and I'm always scouting out lulzier things I can do.

    ^ This. Thank you.

    If you hadn't said it, I would have continued to feel exactly the same in silence. And I don't actually know of anywhere else I can go. As far as I can tell, the local anon planning happens here, since there's only a handful of us.

    No way will I ever walk, not from this. Why would I leave something so important? And that would just add to the drama. But staying here is painful when so many people seem to have got distracted. I've never understood Internet drama, personally, but I assume that there must be some reason for it that just doesn't fit with my character.

    I would make caek, which is very therapeutic and Anon-esque, but I'm home alone and have no-one to make it for. Roll on the next protest.

    I'm just hoping with all my heart that everyone will get it together soon.

    drama is a sad reality of communities, but we'll weather this storm.

    This place has enough moxie and can do spirit to outlast the cult
  19. themadhair Member

    Re: What to Do When Overwhelmed at Enturb

    Do threads like these count as part of the drama?
  20. Anonymous Member

    Re: What to Do When Overwhelmed at Enturb

    I don't want it to be. :( Was intended more to be a "Applicable to anytime there's too much drama" thing.
  21. themadhair Member

    Re: What to Do When Overwhelmed at Enturb

    ^ But it felt therapeutic though didn't it? It is similar with the 'shitstorm' threads. They will die down eventually. At the moment the reason they are still going is because feeding the trolls can be hilarious and even more therapeutic on occasion.

    Re: What to Do When Overwhelmed at Enturb

    Well, does it help to think that Anonymous is a lot bigger than what you see in GD?

    The drama here is perpetuated by the same people and for every one of those people, there are dozens who are happily out doing things to bring down the cult.

    I've been reading ALL the forums since the Tom Cruise video came out and I went to Mark Bunkers site and found out Scientology was still alive and well.

    There are a couple of groups on BOTH sides who are very narrow-minded, and paranoid--both convinced that the other is evil incarnate--(OSA! Leaderfags!!! ) and they're both being fed by trolls.

    They are a minority of the whole movement, and even tho they are all bitching and bawwing --they are still working (as is everybody who is NOT bitching and bawwing) so COS is still getting its ass kicked.

    Yes, it is depressing to see--b/c it seems basically to me to be an unfortunate case of cultural misunderstanding ratcheted into hysteria between basically (neutral adjective) people.

    tl;dr
    the drama is small part of the whole movement--The cult is still being destroyed, chin up.

    Re: What to Do When Overwhelmed at Enturb

    please compare the number of drama threads (few) to the number of useful threads (>9000). most people don't give a crap and go on doing useful things.

    make a local forum. fight the Co$ on your own terms. don't think that a self-important announcement will affect anyone here.

    i see much more often that forums rip apart because things AREN'T discussed. here, things are put in the open and dissected for all to see.

    throw a bunch of angry cats in a small room, some are bound to scratch and fight. thus is the way of chaos and anarchy.

    Re: What to Do When Overwhelmed at Enturb

    1. Turn off the computer.
    2. Go outside & do something fun. Exercise. Spend time with real life friends/family.
    3. Once you have your priorities straight, come back & help out.
    4. Know that you can't solve drama. Just ignore it usually sorts itself out faster with fewer people involved.

    Re: What to Do When Overwhelmed at Enturb

    There has been a direct correlation between American schools breaking for summer and an extreme influx of drama. This dramafagging all started in early June. These kids need to GTFO of the internet, forcibly if necessary. Anonymous has become trendy and these teenagers are using it as their medium of rebellion. They need to be put in line. Ignore the kiddies, don't feed the trolls, but if they continue to cause drama, show them what Anonymous truly is and make them run scared to mommy and daddy. They need to learn Anonymous is not their friend and it is not their revolution. NONE OF US IS AS CRUEL AS ALL OF US!

    What would you say Anonymous "is", why do we have to agree on it, and why would we want it to scare away younger Anons? No thanks.

    OP here. Please don't incite further drama in this thread. This is about solutions to any applicable overwhelm members of Enturb may have.

    BTW thanks to everyone else. I've been feeling a lot better taking some of the relevant advice.

    Re: What to Do When Overwhelmed at Enturb

    I agree with my fellow Anon. This is not drama. This is taking back chanology. What is Anonymous? Anonymous is the internet made flesh. Anonymous is the internet haet machine, now raeging out of any moralfag's or leaderfag's control. Moot was never in control. We will take down anyone in our way, especially those who call themselves Anons or those sympathetic to the cause, yet continue to stand in the way of progress toward our lulz. This includes Magoogoo and /b/ itself when necessary. Anonymous is still not your friend and will not hug you.

    We do not FORGIVE. We are merciless.
    We do not FORGET. Your dramafagging is logged.
    Expect the true Anonymous to take back Chanology.

    Re: What to Do When Overwhelmed at Enturb

    OP again. I respectively ask people to please stay on topic and ignore trolling. Thanks.
  33. incog712 Member

    Re: What to Do When Overwhelmed at Enturb

    Yes! It's Dramadrama. :woot:

    But that's ok. OP, when the drama seems overwhelming, just keep in mind that there are around 10,000 registered users here (save for so many sockpuppet accounts). There are easily 10x that many unregistered lurkers (including so many scientologists).

    Even at it's worst, there are never more than a few dozen members getting caught up in any drama threads at any given time. For them, the drama is bound to be of epic importance. But for thousands upon thousands of other Anon's, not so much.

    drama bark /= drama bite
