What is it about this place

I’ve noticed it’s essentially the same posters year after year on here that return some under different user names myself included. Some have anti social disorders a lot don’t, some have traits and have been in the legal system some haven’t, some people have no traits of the disorder. For whatever reason we all end up back on here.

Is it a replacement for a social life aside from real life, is it the interesting characters here, what is the reason for you?

I’m not sure I know, I’ve left with intentions to not come back and came back for certain friends on here other than that I’m really not sure it might just be an escape from reality for me, from the day to day crappola. I often think it’s not healthy to over analyze myself so much and I’m causing more problems than I’m solving by being here at times.

I'm not sure, really. It has helped me in many ways and I also find that I read stuff from people I'd not otherwise talk to.

Some people have surprised me, which has led me to rethink some of my preconceptions, which is never a bad thing.

Other than that, killing time when I'm working and waiting for something to happen.

I got bored with the place a few years ago and left for about 18 months; I guess it's a bit like Hotel California: you can check out but never leave.
I'm not arguing; I'm explaining why I'm right.

I'll have to think about this one or else I might run the risk of sounding platitudinous (if that's a word).

99% of the time I wish people would just ignore me..

I've questioned why I keep returning here multiple times and I don't have the answer to that. I think it's partly because I'm still trying to figure myself out. I don't think I ever will at this point. And there are interesting posts, so there are still things to learn here, even if it doesn't seem like it most of the time.

Sometimes I enjoy the drama that unfolds here on occasion. Sometimes I wish there was more of it, and other times I couldn't give a shlt.

Sometimes I think about leaving permanently and have tried to a couple of times, but alas, the exit sign only leads you right back to Hell again.

Why do you come here if that’s the case?

What do you define as a 'friend' here?

Why does anyone come here. To throw a comment here and there. To share thoughts.

I was wondering this the other day and formulated an explanation which made perfect sense.
I forget it tho'
I'll just list what I like about here. ... sometimes.
-People are not as judgemental here as on other forums or irl.
-They don't get into a knot about stuff other people over-react to eg. natural catastrophes, crime, politics, religion....No one gives a sh1t which I like.
- One can be moody here without people becoming alarmed.
-There is no pretence about caring.
-There is less neediness to become attached. F*ck I have had two offers to skype on another forum and am so happy no one asks me here :=)
-There is no real right v's wrong attitude here. People's opinions are accepted regardless of whether or not they have stats and facts to back them up.
-It is reasonably busy. I like the conversations on schizoid forum but one has to wait weeks for a reply.
-People here write well, have depth of thought, are politically incorrect,can be batsh1t crazy and can have wicked dark humour .... which I like.

Hate the emojis tho'

I like the way there's no pretence as well.
