Very sick of my feed being clogged by idiots following dozens of other people at once in an attempt to get more attention to their site.

Would be nice if Neocities at least included an option to filter out that nonsense.

i suppose all things nerdy and underground eventually become soiled by superficial attention seeking muggles at some point :( i just ended up unfollowing anyone that does that

Ha. I remember those days, wouldn’t be surprised if you could dig up a message of me asking for site building tips on your feed!

I'm pretty sure I did this when I was new here... but then I didn't have too many people following me in return to all get spammed with that nonsense :D

@fragmentandreflect, that's a very sad, universal truth. Normiefication is a social entropy that causes everything that is good to be decayed. It's for this reason that I will never stop defending the practice of gatekeeping. There are far too many NORPs/NPCs/muggles that have no real interests or passions and just want to superficially latch on to anything interesting and drink it dry like a leech.

For pretty much my entire life i've been mocked and ostrasized for clothes, music, ideas that the same people will a few years later be totally into because it's suddenly trendy. Maybe that's just the way it works when you're an individual. Maybe it's because we spend time tapping into the collective pool of human creativity and discover aspects of the collective unconscious before they become conscious idk??

ideally as humans evolve peopel will be more comfortable following there own inner guidance and moral compass, but we're evolving out of thousands or some might say millions of years of group dynamics that were necessary for survival in nature..

That's definitely happened with nerd culture! People used to be made fun of for being introverted too, and now obvious extroverts are claiming to be introverted. Even autism is now being appropriated by some people now that the stereotype is moving beyond "classical" autism. In my experience, most (not all) neurotypicals are just herd animals that just want to fit in and be accepted by the majority of other people,

and don't care how hypocritical or immoral they have to be in order to do so. Some of them are genuinely shocked when they encounter someone who doesn't care about fitting in. I honestly wonder if autism/non-conformity is an evolutionary mechanism designed to make sure that even if the entire rest of the herd collectively commits suicide due to stupidity, a few people will remain to rebuild afterward...

Sadly it often ends up being the sensitive weirdos taking their own lives and the tenacious dick weeds keep thriving. I'm hopeful of things shifting in the coming years and maybe I'll get to see Elon musk and others put on trial for crimes against humanity

I'm not down to see them executed, just forced to grow vegetables on a sinking island and learn how to be compassionate to themselves and others

The sad truth is that humans are, at their core, apes that can use tools. Our brains haven't had time to evolve since the days when rape and murder were considered socially acceptable. It's possible for us to overcome this, but far too few people care to make the effort to do so. Thus, sadly, sensitivity and empathy are generally not traits that help a person pass on their genes.
