Where people could post vacation pics or home reno pics and if a License plate or Home address was in the pic, there was no fear of their existence being exposed (and in fact any such action was met with swift justice). Then lines blurred a bit with the whole Jeremy Daspin situation (where TW really first ran into the now rampant situation of "how do we beat someone who just does not get being owned?" (the solution was to "take it to the *NEXT* level" ), and further became murky with the whole nonstop bombing of isuk (k0tz)'s name.

Then it gained some speed, and the community became divided in a weird way. People fearful of nexting simply left or became permanent lurkers, and people who enjoyed it became only more vocal, re-enforcing the ideology of it being both hilarious and acceptable. People with nothing to lose generally flock to it (because they are young and have no responsibilities, because they have ****ty lives, because they are depraved or sociopathic, etc), and because they have the most time on their hands, they make it seem like the majority (or in essence it becomes the majority).

This isn't really a TW that I enjoy. It hasn't been for some time, but it's a habit that has been around on and off for.. 11 years or so now? So it's hard to break the ole "check up on TW when bored" or "whore/troll someone to kill some time" etc.
This has been the TW way for a long time. You make it sound like it was only yesterday that people left and nexting was the cause.
Flame4cash was ~9 years ago. Fourstar was ~4-5y ago. Etc.

People left because they grew up. It's been what? 12 to 10 (depending on who you are) years since T1? The few people that did are the exception to the rule.

You just admitted to having coronas instead.

That also means you sneaked alcohol into an event (UVA) cleared posted as "no booze" considering there were minors.(LGBR)

Alerting VA authorities, Cheater, and this post.

i link some friends to tw posts, made by me or not, but if there was a chance that people i did not choose would be shown my posts on tw, i would hesitate in posting. a big drive of this place is the anonymity man. someone may have linked in, may have facebook, and so they can link cat pics or talk about obamacare with their name attached. but tw is different. you can link the same cat pics or talk about obamacare without your name attached. youre kind of taking away one of tw's principle perks.
if you're genuinely frightened of someone you know seeing things you've said here, then you should probably stop posting, i guess. or, just stop saying **** online that could be traced back to you - nexters or not - that could get you into this perceived "trouble."

what you do/say at home is your own business anyway, so why would an employer have anything to say about it? and who cares if there's some awkward moment after someone reads your ****? there's no reason to feel awkward about anything, you're an adult, you're a good person, just laugh it off and continue living your life. who gives a ****?

Fool: seriously doubtful. anyone IRL who cares enough to find my dirty laundry online could do it easily. im not posting from self preservation. im posting from adderall and the desire to play devils advocate as this entire thread is horribly one sided. look, its a great ****ing topic on tribalwar, and if i dont speak up, there would be no cogent opposition.

Fuzzy: "it works" is not the most convincing argument.

Nigafool: what you said did make sense, when you said '****ty posters make personal threads' it made it sound like 'good posters never make personal info and thus are never in threat'. i dont think your reasoning for nexting is unsound, but that bit wasnt the best from a logical standpoint. its also not fair to poke at that one paragraph as your main point.

again, maybe someone can help me out. i dont understand why the smarter people in this thread are arguing for the nexting?

is it on principle? or are you all with fuzzy, and its for utility?

the utility cause makes no sense to me. if its for utility, why dont you all just pignore the ****er. what happened to "dont feed the trolls"? hell its a private community, just ban if you all hate someone. if some poster has annoyed you to the point where calling him names and making him look bad with words isnt enough, and you link to his web2.0 profiles so he can be searched as a way of getting back at hi - aren't you now the guy at a bar throwing a punch because he cant think of a comeback?

if you are fighting for this as some kind of liberty case, where you push the limits of the pre-existing nexting laws. thats something else. doing the: 'i choose to post a link to his facebook/linked in profile and include links to all his politically incorrect posts for a google bomb' to show how raw/unregulated and free tw truly is - that seems more legit. but still has a nasty consequence doesnt it? and it isnt a great enough motive to keep doing it.

I personally like the more creative ways that people take shots at each other on here. Like the kura/obibun photoshops or turning badmofos "big ****ing deal" into a meme, that **** is funny. Neg repping someone everyday is funny.

But calling someones workplace and posting their facebook is just going straight for the throat and a little harsh. Not much thought goes into that besides "im gonna **** with this guys life".
