winna told me winna was an acronym.. when in name need anonymity or something spooky like that.  And there were some kind of rules, like you can't tell people how to be winna, or something like that.

I totally agree with your analysis on 4chan, although the shadowy powers meet in lots of places.  People are pretty powerful, they can throw rocks and stuff or say things.

You don't have to give anything back to futurama.  If you got something from futurama, or from here, I think paying it forward is the best way to go.  That's real appreciation:  using the things you've been given.

I think small forums like PEEL are better for casual conversations compared to the monolith that is reddit. The way comments are sorted there makes it impossible for them to be seen unless they're posted early in the thread's lifespan.

PEEL is a community. I have always recognized PEEL as being the most upper-brow forum I know of. Before I was on PEEL I lurked for like three years. The etiquette was quite intimidating back then. PEELers are astute & blunt. We didn't dick around in on-topic conversations (unlike the current conversation, but PEEL is more of a graveyard nowadays).

Reddit is kind of like tumblr, just not a total circlejerking cesspool. After twenty-four hours, activity in a thread dives as it loses its relevance to the timeliness. People don't quote others in a greater conversation of a thread like here; they reply to each other & expand the conversation outward instead of upward. The indentation set-up allows for conversations to flow with the topic which in turn invites tangents.

What boards do you lurk/post on on 4chan, Frida?
I've been a regular on 4chan for over a year now.

/co/ (Comics and Cartoons), /vp/ (Pokemon), & a little bit of dabbling in /pol/ (Politically Incorrect), but I can only take it in small doses with all the Neonazis cramping up the place.

4chan is the internet at its top potential & humanity in the raw. 4chan is wonderful because everybody there is anonymous. You can post anything you want & people will either believe you or belittle you & call you a hack. Under the guise of anonymity, it doesn't matter what you do or say. You can voice your opinion or thought, be scrutinized harshly, then say something the exact same somewhere different & have the thought appreciated. It allows for the any thought, be it soft or brash or extreme, to be heard. And when somebody validates your thought or comment on 4chan, you know that they are being judgment yet genuine because there's nothing stopping the individual otherwise from berating you. The creatives, the hidden forces that sway society mingle on 4chan. Brilliance has no face there. You gotta have a thick skin & thick stomach for 4chan. I never really went onto 4chan before last year because I knew I wouldn't be able to handle it emotionally. PEEL developed my confidence in participating in forums. I doubt I could ever give back what I got from PEEL, but if I am the greatest Futurama fan in the world, maybe I can give a little bit of my life & experience to the series.

Wow, I sound fruity. Like, fruitier than my namesake.

Thank you winna for editing your post that was hurting my neck. I've been playing Futurama: Worlds of Tomorrow as I type this post while my kitty cat steps on my keyboard.

That's very deep, Frida. Really. I dabbled in 4-chan back in the day, but only like maybe once a week, if that.

And Peel has been tremendously good to me. Given me confidence to travel across the country every year, now.
