I think I'm going to delete my account.

I browsed through my personal feed, and even though I've spend some time curating, only about 1 in a 100 is a real rant. The rest are memes, mildly funny observations, the kind of programmer humor which is only funny to non-programmers, and bland anekdotes.

And when I post something IN ALL CAPS WITH SOME FUCKING CURSEWORDS AND RAGE IN THERE YOU CUNTS ALL TELL ME TO CALM DOWN AND BE MORE POSITIVE?

What kind of a weak, smoothieslurping mindfulness convention has this community become? Do you guys just want to be a mildly funny reddit clone for easily offended hipsters?

This place was my outlet, my venting space, the spot where I didn't feel alone in frustrations.

I find this new content fucking sickening.

    Why do you care about what others think?
    Keep ranting. I, for one, enjoy them
  • 36
    Shut the fuck up and rant, actually no that's not going to work when you think about it.

    Rant like you've never ranted before, be loud and be heard!!! 🙌
  • 23
    Mate, why don't you just ignore all the morons and still do your thing?
    Fuck the newcomers and rant it all out with capital letters and curse words. You may also want to use a picture to describe the inner anger better. :)

    I, for one, have no problem with people ranting and socializing here.
  • 21
    Gotta agree with you here.

    I rarely browse the feed because there's just no good content. I just subscribed to a bunch of people and read their posts. And I recommend you to do so as well.

    Also, for the sake of all that's holy, filter joke/memes. The feed becomes 300% less cancerous that way.

    K, bye 👋

    Never understood the need to make a fuss about leaving a space you don't enjoy being in. It's kind of like when people comment "I'M UNSUBBING!!!!1!!one!!!" on youtube videos. Just go, lol.

    The problem is, people in the real world say, don't rant. People in our little world also say, don't rant.
    When all the old guard drop their swords I'll drop mine too.
  • 25
    I remember ranting about those Pinterest quotable quotes people before I deleted my previous account. These days I just make my rants as offensive and morbid as possible so at least half of them know there's no place for positivity in my little brain.

    I just subscribed to a bunch of people now or be aggressive as fuck to the newbie morons who give life advice while they're still sucking on their mother's tits.
  • 10
    @rutee07 and that's exactly the reason why I'm subscribed to you. That's exactly the type of humor I expect on dR.
  • 12
    You fucking dipshit moron son of a motorgrease-muncher when the fuck will your two disabled braincells finally notice that people actually goddamn care about the unfiltered and unseasoned utter bullcrap you spew on this platform!
  • 8
    In all honesty though, I'd hate to see you go
  • 17
    @Elyz Because this community was my favorite place on the internet.

    A bunch of meme kids jumped in through the window and started swinging on the chandelier throwing their shit all over the floor.

    If that happened to your home, would you you "just leave" or at least punch a few of them in the stomach before calling extermination services?
  • 11
    @bittersweet oh I'm not disagreeing with you, I think it's annoying too. However I just don't see how it's going to change. The memes will keep flowing and people will keep being annoying. No use getting upset about things you can't change 🤷‍♀️ I just think when you've had enough one should just leave instead of making a fuss about it. I feel like we have this "devrant is going downhill" convo weekly but nothing changes, so it feels like a waste of energy. Until we get a feature to vote people off the island I don't think it'll be what you were used to in here.

    @irene and why are you so aggressive, got a cactus cemented up your ass ya fucktrumpet?

    @epse I have no positivity

    deleting your content = more crappy meme indian spam on devrant instead of real rants
  • 8
    @Linux more crappy Indian spam = more actual ranters leave = dR will become a knockoff r/ProgrammerHumor
  • 10
    @RantSomeWhere I think I'll start downvoting and insulting the stupid memes to "help". I usually just ignore them though on some rare occasions that I insult them, they actually delete it. If those parasites contribute to the real angry ranters leaving then they have to die.

    Reading comments from @irene telling people they're wrong on every thread made my day today though, especially the wrong categories. 😂
  • 4
    @rutee07 And sooner or later you have to deal with Mr. Fox. Been there, done that.
  • 6
    @norman70688 I don't understand the reference. Megan Fox is the first thing that came to mind.
  • 4
    @rutee07 Dealing with Megan Fox could be quite enjoyable, I am assuming, compared to one of the owners of this platform.
  • 4
    @norman70688 Oh shit, I forgot that human beings own this place. I get it now. Lol.
  • 4
    @rutee07 Yeah, sometimes it feels like meme bots own this place.
    But filters are also working well.
  • 5
    Without @bittersweet, dR would only be bitter... nooooooeees
  • 7
    Stay, adapt, rant, survive
  • 5
    @rutee07 I'd do that as well, but something is preventing me from downvoting posts. Like, something immediately up votes the post and neutralizes my downvote.

    https://devrant.com/rants/2169071/...
  • 4
    @RantSomeWhere Then insults it will be. I'll just keep in mind to insult the post and not the user's cemented hymen so Megan Fox doesn't come after me.
  • 6
    @rutee07 I swear, if dfox bans us for insulting people who want us to "stay positive" and not "cry like a little bitch", then so be it. That would be peak hypocrisy.

    @rutee07 someone is wrong on the internet! 🤣

    @RantSomeWhere I was almost banned for telling people to GFO with their dank memes 🙃

    @irene were they posted in the correct category?

    @RantSomeWhere there were no categories yet

    Oh yeah, couple or so years ago didn't exist here option to filter that shit.

    Hey..

    Leave those people

    Its you and it depends on what you care and leave. Just neglect those garbage and keep ranting...

    Best Wishes

    @RantSomeWhere I haven't seen this yet. Maybe the older members have. I'm surprised I haven't gotten banned with some of my rants being very violent and disgusting. Anyway, I will see. I'm just waiting for the lucky fresh new curry.

  • 1
    @irene ah. Well, if it had been miscategorized, it would have been justified, imo.
  • 2
    @rutee07 no, you really contribute a lot! If they ban you for "ranting too much/too violently", I'm outta here
  • 4
    @allenabraham777 well, look at Mr. New Guy over here telling people how to use this platform.

    It's a serious problem. Comments like "take a chill pill / dude don't swear like that / think positively / etc" are not uncommon anymore. I come here to rant and swear profoundly, and I won't take advice from pussies that are offended by the word "fuck" telling me not to swear! Fuck em
  • 7
    Please do not delete your account. You wrote the best rants on devRant.
    Just leave and let others enjoy your rants.
  • 4
    How come no one tells me to calm down and be positive !
  • 6
    or fucking people spamming shit in the rant category, like is this the new trend to get attention, like we are talking about members with thounds of upvotes doing this, it seems like people doesnt care about this sort of stuff any more. Like honestly is this the new trend "playing retarded" "I am retarded, and i dont know how to use the propper category" "i want attention".

    @Frederick

    I didn't even notice there was different categories for ages !

    I blame the buttons, for not looking like buttons !

    When did we start designing buttons to not look like buttons..

    (Wonders if its an Apple thing..)
  • 8
    @Nanos C'mon be fucking positive for once, you retarded cunt.

    I understand you have trouble staying calm because you look like the kind of dimwit who still uses notepad++ on Windows Vista, but if you don't chill down right now I'll shatter the display of your phone and force feed you shards of gorillaglass.

    There you go, feeling better buddy? ♥️

    I want to delete my account on account of the bandwagoning whiny dense motherfuckers in this place man. I try to have less involvement with the community because of this shit. Just recently my latest argument was telling some cupcakes that I was not targeting them for a rant.

    Apparently people do like to be offended over nothing. Such.....weakness man.

    @AleCx04

    It's really difficult for people to understand that just because:

    1. I'm fucking frustrated with frontend developers shoving some framework in my face...

    2. You're a frontend dev on devRant, and you both like and use that framework...

    ...doesn't mean I have a personal issue with you.

    I'm not literally going to rip your spinal cord apart because you make your money writing Angular plugins. I don't give a fuck about that.

    I'm just frustrated by being in that personal situation, in my own specific environment.

    I'm going to vent my frustration, I will be overly biased, I will use logical fallacies and flawed arguments. I'm just letting all the mental poop flow out.

    It's not a coffee salon topic about technology based on strong rational arguments and fair debate, it's just. me. fucking. ranting.

    And if you point out some of the logical flaws in my rant, that's fine, I'm up for the coffee salon version in the comments. Telling me "I don't relate, I love Angular it makes my nipples hard" or "Some of your points are only because you're doing it wrong, have you tried first gulping your cucumber and then yarning your jest?" — all cool.

    Just don't bitch about my right to throw that bunch of angry nonsense into a post in the first place.

    There is a difference between refuting someone's emotions, their right to be annoyed as fuck, and refuting their logic and arguments.

    Telling me to curse less or "just chill" doesn't make sense, because it's literally the purpose & reason this community exits.

    @bittersweet

    :-)

    I'm still on just Notepad..

    I hope Notepad++ hasn't inherited the same bugs that plague Notepad..

    It isn't amusing to try a version of Notepad on a completely different CPU / OS and find the exact same bugs, its almost as if someone copied the Notepad code..
  • 4
    @bittersweet goodbye friend. Thanks for all your rants and comments. Thanks for all the smiles you put on my face. Thanks for all the laravel advise you gave me. Thanks for introducing me to the well of all good packages from Spatie. Thanks for being awesome.

    I don't know who I will have to fuck to get advise on laravel when I get stuck in the future. But it's OK. I hope. 😅

    @bittersweet

    Actually I really like Vista !

    The only problem nowadays, is actually trying to install the updates once you've installed the OS..

    All the magic waving of chickens around no-longer seems to work, and it just sits there, forever not updating..

    I've even tried all the download update apps, none of them work !

    Will I be forced to install XP 64bit instead..

    At the moment I tend towards W7, but, its buggy for large file transfers..

    So its fine, if you don't need to use it often as a backup OS.

    But then, nothing modern works on it and everything needs at least Win 8.1...

    Well, I suppose 8.1 isn't too bad..

    (Except of course, it won't run on a particular MB I have, whilst W7 and W10 do !)

    I think it's great that, there is room for memes etc. But great rant to set focus on the rants!

    @bittersweet please don’t delete your account

    @bittersweet if you delete your account i will probably stop supporting dR.

    Imho you are one of the few good motherduckers left in this community (along with some peeps that replied on this post)

    People like you should continue to rant like they're stuck in a 'while true' loop.
  • 4
    @bittersweet just go to the stories tab you big dummy. It has pure rants and rants alone. Memes are only a few words at most
  • 5
    That one time I decide to pop in again and you guys are all about drama and begging for somebody to stay (again) lol.

    It helped a lot to take healthy breathers and take dR from my home screen into the app drawer, maybe worth a shot for some over investing themselves into what is still a user driven forum.

    The hipsters and starbucks hackers are what takes most of the land, deal with it or drown in their feces.

    Not to shit over the neighbors fence, I've had my fair share of the same experience with forums, even recently where I over invested myself into the community and people, just for it to go to "shit", even though it is just that delusional expectation we secretly set ourselves and those pink glasses.
  • 3
    Maybe that's the evolution, actual rants and ranters left and meme bois pop in?
  • 3
    @norman70688 ah yeah forgot to mention that, but checked just couple minutes ago if I was the only breather taking one, even linuxxx went MIA even though he was the only surviver from the "wave", where we all just sort of went our jobs and days instead of keeping a day worth on here, managing user scripts, github issues, keeping up with people and people's problems, all that jazz.
  • 5
    My further personal take on this: everything in portions, we ourselves fucked us over by setting such expectations for how devrant should be and what people grow on here, some even took it so deeply to heart they made countless self or devrant administration hatred posts, fishing for calming facebook'esque comments, others went more silently and just moved an app icon away from sight.

    If we'd less invest into that stressful notification driven life on here, together with fighting some very poorly educated people and less trying to change the kids that know no better, we could enjoy the couple minutes that devrant still easily can give us, even daily if necessary.

    Curiosity is going to hunt you is all I can tell too, it killed me trying to keep up, because I've deleted accounts, but if I just naturally got fed up and bored, it faded itself - because if I want to, just like now, I can pop in anytime.

    Use this as a blog, rather than a platform to find equals, we are death filth ridden with a million of people that are just waiting to piss your day, might as well enjoy some of your own time instead.

    Keeping it down to a blog of sorts makes it much more appealing for me too personally, none of that drama to keep up with, no endless threads about things people will realize anyway, no more wasting time reflecting on people that enjoy the attention,.. just some good old ranting of what happened or just progress of what you have learned or did.

    Rant! Rant like the caps lock abusing angry mother fucker that you are in the moment. This is the place for ranting and if some snowflake cunt tells you to calm down, tell em to get fucked and we’ll be right behind you. Bring on another glorious frustration and anger fuelled rant... we froth that shit. 🤘🏼

    So bitching about not being able to bitch... That's kind of ironic I would say.

    Like if anyone can bitch about everything, then it's legit to bitch about your bitching. Isn't it?

    Or should we not bitch about others bitching?

    I like to bitch about others bitching...

    @xsid you're new then, because downvotes have been commented by dfox many times, they aren't reddit downvotes, they are report tools for harassment and other violations.

    @JoshBent and they influence algo to feed your feed.

    @nnee only on feed and if you use the algo to begin with, also there's the option on comments too

    Hi. Been gone some time now. Dunno if anybody remembers me anymore. So many new people. Things have changed indeed. Had to do a bit of searching to find someone I remember. I had forgotten most of your names (sorry). Seems like Irene is still here. Dunno about the Linux guy(s). I miss devRant. Bye.
