      It’s objectively true. Look at 4stats when the captcha changed. And look at qst thread that accidentally triggered all the /a/ bots. And other platforms are undoubtedly worse

      I believe it.
      Another thing too. I think the purpose of facebook and more or less all social media was to use likes and other reactions so that popular sentiments of posts, ideas, etc could be quantified for AI training so that the AI could latter manipulate and promote certain ideas.

        shit idk how i never thought of this. there’s literally mountains of training data for creating successful populist posts. you could just train it on posts from the current year, to keep it popular with modern culture, and there would still be shit loads of data available. you could probably just have a program that reformats a normal post to be more convincing to the public

      Legitimate. Reddit and Twitter are the two websites hit the hardest with bots, especially with the Covid-19 shit going on. The entire front page of Reddit is just advertising and agenda pushing. Twitter "trends" are wholly artificial and if you paid attention to the news in the past you’d know admins have all kinds of tools to manipulate and control trends on Twitter.

      Here’s some Reddit communities to outline the bot problem:
      https://old.reddit.com/r/MurderedByAOC/
      >256,360 Readers
      >137 users here now (And it never goes above 300. Keep in mind most communities with 250k+ members have at least 1500 people online at any time)
      >Most threads are made by the same few users
      >Every thread has tens of thousands of upvotes. Most get to the front page instantly.

      >https://old.reddit.com/r/ABoringDystopia/
      >640,367 Readers
      >820 Online
      >Most of these are Twitter screenshots and reach the front page very quickly. This one is grouped along with MurderedByAOC for pushing very specific political narratives and ideas.

      >https://old.reddit.com/r/CovIdiots/
      >119,707 Readers
      >240 Online
      >Mostly dead at this point but in the past it got many dozens of threads to the front page of the website.
      Keep in mine r/NoNewNormal had around 115k members before it got nuked, but it never, ever dipped below 3,000 people online at any time and would usually peak with 5,000-6,000 people online. A community with less subscribers had over 20 times as many people visiting it and posting.

        This is easily explainable. NoNewNormal has lots of posters online because it’s a community. These other subreddits you linked have few people online because they’re mostly voted up via the frontpage for having "correct" more-broad-reaching opinions

        >redditor doesn’t understand reddit
        The "weird" stuff you talk about has strong parallels with youtube channels trying to grind subscribers instead of trying to actually grow an audience, it’s just scrotes gaming the system for a short while and then fading into irrelevance.

        I don’t think anyone denies that there’s a shitload of bots on the internet, it’s more of the proportion of bots to humans that’s the question.
        Although I think even if bots don’t make the majority of posts, the bots and/or platforms work to make sure certain posts (either made by bots or just humans with the "correct" opinion) blow up.

          Yeah, though I think especially twitter in particular is that actually reported there being a ridiculous amount of bot/fake accounts.

          It’s true though, making a certain subgroup’s views more visible through their algorithms – why else would they push that shit so hard on users – is just as effective if not more so.

        This.

        For anyone who hasn’t figured it out, these bots are being funded by the oligarchy ( and In case you don’t know what the fuck that is, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0O04vuRpSJY is a decent quick rundown ) to overwhelmingly target and control the narrative of left-leaning folk. Meanwhile the right is bogged down by their own conspiracy shit. The result is that no one is right about anything and nobody knows anything while the elite continue to rob everyone blind.

      Obviously the original post was made in good faith and it points out trends anyone whose been around long enough can see, but it insinuates some outside conspiracy to explain the transformation instead of reconciling that its a consequence of the system evolving and growing on its own.

      Yes we live in an algorithmic culture and its harder than over to connect to real things. Your old internet friends left you behind and live other lives. LULZ and reddit are petri dishes for bots and manipulation campaigns, with many reposts and expeirments happening in secret, opersted by random ass people.

      Youre rarely going to be connected to real people on the internet. There’s no more ‘incidental’ audience or events, its all algorithmically churned, filtered, optimized, refined to drive ad dollars and dopamine addiction.

      No genuine art can grow out of such a dismal landscape. Yes the internet is dead. The theory that some shadow cabal did this is totally unnecessary. Eternal september continues to unspool and iterate.

      I run a kind of successful website. It’s all true, everything is fake. Reddit started with admins having conversations with themselves and having an admin tool that let them switch accounts. You need users to generate content but you need content to get users. The answer is to pretend you are users who are making content.

      Reddit and Facebook have been absorbing smaller websites. People disappeared from your forums and small communities because they went to the big sites.

      The internet being so fake is why it’s become so disposable. With forums, people would ask questions, and then you would search when questions were asked to get the answer, and if there was no answer, you’d ask. The forum would become a giant repository of information. But this makes it very easy to see history and see what’s fake or not. So the new internet is disposable, content generated is disappeared. Look at facebook communities compare to real forums. Real forums you search and get an answer. FB is filled with the same scrotebrains asking the same questions over and over again because there is no search function.

      The modern internet is 100% fake, dead, and gay.

      This is something I thought too, at least on the surface level. A lot of posts on LULZ and other places just seem too formulaic to be made by real people. Whether that’s an aspect of human behavior that I’m just not familiar with since I’m a shut-in, which is likely the case, or a more sinister phenomenon, I can’t say with certainty.

        Perhaps it’s possible that the LULZ and other communities have a very high level of bots that make the entire community seem very real, but there’s definitely more to it than that. It’s just the first thing that came to my mind as I read this.

        It’s like they’re programmed to use a fixed list of canned responses, and repeat them over and over, no matter the circumstances. We can know it’s an AI, or a bot or something, but I’m so goddamn tired of listening to the same stories over and over again. I’ve stopped responding to people on Tumblr about the same story (the one I talked about earlier), because every goddamn time someone posts a picture or I comment on another person’s post I’m reminded of that story. It’s literally one of the most tiresome things I’ve ever encountered.

I can’t help but conclude that the training set has actually been inverted – bots are intended to train human discourse in the real world

      Mmh, in concept it’s true, there’s only but a small portion of the internet that’s either relevant, meaningful, or not subject ot the whims of the powers that be. Everything else is noise either created artificially (bots), people coaxed into believing their charade, and people lost in the void looking to pass the time mindlessly (doomscrolling on twitter/tiktok/etc).

      My problem with these kind of theories is that the schizos rarely know/remember that the internet is pretty much a byproduct of the glowies controlling academia and whatnot, sure Tim berners-lee by himself, being sovereign of his body/mind, might not have wanted to create or facilitate a way to control global narratives, but he grew and developed his passions within the matrix of power that allows you to do as much. So basically, my friendly schizos, are just bored out of their minds looking at the debris, instead at the ones that make it.

      no, the normies just moved on to spaces not overrun with tards shouting racist nonsense just to be edgy. the internet has more people connected now than anytime before, but most of the new users are on Facebook mobile. is anyone really surprised that people don’t want to share a board with pedophiles and alt-right scrotebrains?
      and if being called an alt-rightard offends you guess what, /poo/ was just a larp before the tards who actually believe that shit started showing up. when your opinion gets laughed out of every other space so you come here you’re just self-containing your scrotebraination. if you give a shit about politics period you are scrotebrained.

      I honestly believe 60% of the posts on the internet in general (and here) are the work of GPT-3 (or higher) and similar bots, but also the work of disinformation agents. I’ve seen so much shitposting, so many nonsensical posts, so much shit stirring and shit flinging over the years and it’s getting every day worse, discussion quality is at an all time low. The threads fly by, day in day out and we are none the wiser. No great knowledge gets shared, no meaningful contact is created.

      Anyone who becomes a janitor in this website doesn’t last long because how could they? Seeing this much mental garbage on the daily is just too much for any human brain. It’s why LULZ is constantly hiring new ones.

        The solution is to just leave LULZ. Too many shitposters. Too many underageb&. Too much porn, scrotebraination, shitty "memes", and other cruft permeating most boards on here, save for the small niche ones.
        Even without the bots, kids, and idiots, most people on here aren’t even that notable. LULZ worships shit like Luke Smith and Mental Outlaw and constantly argues about inane trivial topics instead of actually learning and creating new cool stuff. I come on here occasionally just out of boredom and it gets old very fast.

          The solution is to just leave LULZ. It’s a waste of time and resources to deal with it. The last thing you want to do is give power to the LULZ users and give them some kind of visibility in the real world. You also have to take into account that they don’t just “make” the news. There’s a certain type of user that does troll the website for reasons that are often irrational (and therefore more annoying). I’d say that most of them get their news from other sources.

      I’ve been noticing stuff like this as well. A lot of it is algorithms, I’m pretty sure. For instance, I was hanging out with my friend, and she said something about "There is no ethical consumption in capitalism". I had never heard that shit before in my life; but lo and behold, I see a random youtube comment talking about it, then someone on LULZ talking about it. Both on the same day, two days after the original conversation. Probably because my phone picked up the phrase. It’s like the youtube algorithm. Also, I can’t recall what they were right now; but the same kind of things have happened to me before, except even more. Just things that I hear irl for the first time, then it’s freaking everywhere. Sometimes it even happens irl. Like two or three different people talking to me about new things. Not to go full LULZ, but I wonder if I’m the only person that’s conscious, and everything, and everyone else is part of a simulation that’s designed to either keep you engaged, or make you think a certain way. Or maybe we’re all conscious; but were still in a simulation. I have no idea, but shit’s been weird for the last couple years. I used to be a hardcore materialist; but after the last few years, I’m not really sure anymore. Not schizo, I swear. Just ADHD. Another weird theory that popped into my mind is that the simulation is making AIs, and that’s what we are. They simulate a world, then save the useful personalities. An artist would be an art AI. A trucker would be a driving AI. Or, maybe they do one ai at a time, and I’m supposed to be a video game expert NEET burnout AI, lmao. Designed to bring up obscure video game facts. Again, I don’t really believe it; but wouldn’t that be some shit?

        The observation is true, but the reasons are different.
        I primarily blame recommendations algorithms, they train people to be passive consumers of content.
        Before them you had to be way more proactive on the internet; finding communities, discovering weird stuff. Now you can go on twitter, youtube whatever and get hours of entertainement without having to type a single search query.
        Rec algs may in a way already be a runaway AI scenario. Every single human with an internet connection uses them and they are all optimized to maximize screen time.
        Experiences like are just people being part of the loop and feeding into the system.

      You’re probably just depressed and have too much free time. Get a hobby, do some shit. Internet itself stopped being interesting in a while – that is, unless you enjoy bland pre-digested shit you find reposted from other social network. I’m pretty convinced myself that the only reason this website is still around is because goolag is using it as a social experiment of some sorts.

      But yeah, anon, get out. No matter whether we’re living people or not – this place is dead, eternal september came over here too.

      You skeptics are missing the point. Say you start your own image board. No one shows up. You need it to make it look like people are there so real people show up. You can sit there and pay scrotebrains to generate bullshit content or you can just write a scraper that scrapes data from everywhere and feeds it into an AI that acts like real people.

      Now add that there are a lot of people with a lot of money that want control over people, and a lot of start up websites that want money, and you can see why it makes sense. Look at a LULZ pass, pay to bypass the captcha. Captcha is meant to keep bots out. LULZ lets you pay so you can bypass the thing that keeps bots out. It’s obvious that LULZ has bots and they are profiting from it.

      I don’t see it less as a concrete (conspiracy) theory, and more as an anon being frustrated or even scared with how Internet has changed over the years.
      A lot of them can be explained away with Internet becoming more mainstream (e.g. more supply (more artists) and demand (more perverted people with disposable income) for fetish art, more corpos that want to use their ad brainwashing techniques on the web, normalscrotes getting lazy and settling for a few social media sites owned by megacorps, Twitter and Reddit who don’t even have CAPTCHA and therefore bots are rampant). Some of them can be explained away from anon growing up and noticing the repeating patterns. In fiction, for example, repeating patterns have literally existed for millenia; there’s a reason the Hero’s Journey is a thing. On people in general every time new humans are born they are rediscovering the same shit about the human experience that old humans have already figured out, so it’s natural some of them are gonna post similar shit or create similar fiction and oldscrotes are gonna complain how stupid newscrotes are for being born yesterday.

You see, all the posts until about 2007 were genuine, everything from spiderman, cracky chan, to raptor jesus and and firin’ mah laser, all of that was real. but then memes that went out of fashion started getting rehashed by people who sorta understood LULZ but never understood why or how memes worked. Whole threads would last days sometimes so people could develop a lulzy idea and other people would add even more lulz to it till it became a huge meme. 2007 saw so many newscrotes because of MSM getting in on it that threads started disappearing after a few hours. the same thing happened in 2010 and by now so many peopple were on LULZ, that just like today a thread can start and theres no time to develop an idea so it all becomes boring shit and rehashed memes. LULZ isnt seminal any more, its just a rite of passage, and an empty husk

        Basically this. There’s no incentive to be creative anymore. People on LULZ these days post the exact same idiocy as in the rest of the internet (leddit, twatter, fecalbook, etc).

        If mods over here made an effort to delete this sort of no-effort, boring, worthless crap in all its forms:

It was a magical place once again until so many events 2015-onward turned LULZ into an unlikely battlezone. Maybe when they realize what a colossal waste of resources shilling this place up is, they will leave and we can go back to discussing Teh Rei or whatever.

      Considering how "universal" the internet gradually became more and more accesible to even your grandma, it’s not a surprise to see how everything got so monotonous and repetitive, specially if you consider that mass communication media are now foccused on algorithms that track what most normalscrotes WANT to consume.

      The only difference I see is most of the internet became corporate and therefore sterile and controlled. Since so many stopped web surfing and just stuck to like 5 major corp sites, manipulation became easy.
      Beyond that the Internet never moved all that fast, not really surprising. Most humans are NPC consoomers who don’t make anything. The creators are a smaller group. I’m sure I could watch everything that was actually good on Newgrounds, a decade of work, in a week. I didn’t back then because most of life wasn’t online and I stuck to niche forums which also moved slow and only had a handful of regulars. Plus humans aren’t very original. Of course the same shit gets posted over and over, you notice more as you age.

        Every pepe or wojack post is by definition spam or bots. That’s the only reason it’s still around. Their formulaic nature makes it extremely easy to make templates and shut down, derail or spam meaningful threads.

              so you coming from leftypol pretending that pepe isnt LULZ culture and dilating over pepes on LULZ is obvious where your priorities are.

              nothing you dilate over here in LULZ will be taken seriously and pepe will always be welcome anywhere on this board like anime is. now go have a nice day.

      This could’ve been an interesting post but it turned into schizo rambling very quickly.

      My theory is that back then the internet was something people escaped to, leaving their irl problems at the doorstep. Nowadays everyone is connected 0/24 and people feel more compelled to represent their real selves in the online space too. This has a negative effect on the free flow of thought and information. People are less inclined to go against the grain if they know they are being observed

      I think most people are not the psychotic NPC consoomers the oligarchs want them to be and engage in digital astroturfing that is at such a scale it’s genuinely impossible for the human mind to comprehend. I don’t think it’s all being conducted from a Volcano Lair by a mastermind but rather what became trendy and then what became necessary from dozens of mega corporations and special interests to maintain and Avance their position. It’s sort of coordinated but not to a singular Majestic Council bullshit or anything.

      What they hope is that their astroturfed opinion/conspicuous consumption will encourage the more mindless among real people to hop on what’s trendy because it ‘looks like everyone’s doing it’s while at the same time discouraging dissention by making your view/ethics appear so nonexistent that you should give up now.

      It is mostly true, you can even see it in replies to this thread. I think for a long time I was unaware of it, then I started to get this uncanny feeling, and eventually it solidified when reading posts like this.
      From time to time this discussion pops up, some people feel it in the way software interfaces were simplified over time, others in the way the content of the web feels a lot more bland than it used to be with censorship everywhere, others see it in the way that technology like laptop designs are much worse than they were in the past, or cars started to look the same, or recycled games and movies that tell the same story over and over.
      On the internet it is so widespread that even smaller imageboards are being filled with AI backed political bait posts.
      I reached the conclusion before that leaving the internet is the correct way to move forward, but old habits die hard, and I am still clinging to the odd interesting post that pops up from time to time.
      One interesting thing I found out is that it is better to follow your own intuition and curiosity to find links between information as opposed to following hyperlinks or recommendations. I have found many interesting things on the internet by searching for a topic that showed up in a book or magazine instead of the popular websites.
      The good information is mostly still there, but hidden under a layer of easy dopamine hits that leads on an endless downright spiral of quick satisfaction that ultimately is leaving us empty inside.

        What?

        The whole point of this website is to be able to have these discussions without it degenerating into a flame war.
        If you consider yourself to be a "hardcore conspiracy guy", feel free to disagree, if you consider yourself to be someone who takes things too literally and over-analyzes every single tiny bit of the news, don’t read it and go do something constructive, because this site is for the curious.
        If you are somewhere in between, then take a deep breath and try to keep an open mind.
        The best way to counter conspiracy theorists is to be better than them, not by disproving every tiny bit of their theories, but by offering your own theories that you can back up, because many conspiracy theories rely on the fact that most people don’t know what they are talking about and are incapable of offering solid proofs.

          no, the point of this site, was to remind you of the true nature of life that we often perceive through the prism of our own lives rather than with that of a third party. One must also recognise that in an era that seems to be at the height of emotional maturity — that is, where the world is at and where it has to rise above the other, not only by our own personal experiences but by others too. One is the only person not to be in denial about that reality — not only from one point of view (what is he or she to do), but by a larger one (what is his/her point of view) — but from an individual person.

      Pepe’s wojacks etc. The standard Pepe gets posted as an image to the start of a thread, which Is weird, as most people hate frogposters.
      >overly aggressive
      Sure people like to start dumb foamewars but most of the time a not/shill will reply angrily to a post talking about a topic. The original post usually contains a certain phrase or word that sets them off

      Also its suprises me how no one has posted the anon who logged the ips of suspected bots, and found that it was an instant reply.

      I think the vast majority of theories like that – dead internet, NPCs – is a massive coping mechanism cooked up by low IQ people so that they can put themselves up on a pedestal.
      It’s a very convenient cope. "Everyone else is just a drone with no self awareness: only those who think like me are truly sapient".
      The implication being that you are better. This allows some skillless scrotebrain working at walmart to feel superior to say, a software engineer who puts BLM on his twitter.
      Ironically the people who think like this tend to be the most susceptible to being dronelike in nature. The meme where the NPC has a leading hourglass over its head when you tell it something and then immediately starts getting mad is 1:1 how sub 90 IQ nonsapients from /poo/ act.

        You know this isn’t mutually exclusive with these types of theories right? There probably are a certain subset of low IQ people that cope in the way you described. This doesn’t mean that the internet isn’t full of bots or isn’t homogenized/commercialized when compared to say 15 years ago.

      I tried GPT with Japanese, and it’s really freaking terrible. I guess I’ll rest easy knowing that the right wing nipponese posts I see are real.

      Also, I’m probably one of those people you might consider to have "disappeared" from the internet. I rarely post on LULZ anymore, mostly just lurking for occasional interesting stuff. Now that I think about it, maybe for reasons similar to what everyone else is talking about (i.e. boring repetition, overly hostile people).

      But tbqh, I spend most of my time hanging out with LULZ and LULZ adjacent people in VR. Unless they’ve perfected real time vocal conversation, I’m pretty sure these people are real. Yet, I see a lot of the same shit. Overly aggressive people, and lots of thin skinned people. You’d think LULZners would have much thicker skin, but I guess when you combine autism and trannies you get a shitstorm.

      I’m sure botposting is real, but I think some of it might just be a generational thing. Zoomers are definitely different from even Millennials. Even the LULZ types are more…normalscrote?

      I believe it’s mostly bullshit. The majority of the post rags on about nostalgiafreaking rather than his main theory (posts = bots). There is a few cases where I do believe bots are in play, but mostly I think people are just stupid and love their online goodie points (reddit karma, upvotes/retweets, (yous), etc.)
