me: here's a photo i put on facebook two years or so ago, i made a desk fan with a computer fan. you can also see that i have a PC copy of fallout 4 on the desk (long after the demise of PC CD-ROM games), a running CCTV camera, a tangled mess of cables, and i'm even running windows!
random tech bros: lmao why did you used to use facebook
person on fedi: it took years of preparation, training, and research, but i'm finally here. i've conquered mount everest. i'm at the peak and i've never felt so proud of myself. i put some photos here: [link]
random tech bro: nice try, cuckerberg. i'm not clicking an instagram link and selling you my precious data
genuinely what motivates a human being with access to the world wide web to interact by a post by a person they have never talked to before to admonish them for using facebook over one year ago. what makes someone think that it will be appreciated when they go out of their way to tell another user that they shouldn't have used the most popular service in the world at any point in their lives
what's that? everyone at your school used facebook and you joined to communicate with them? herd mentality. "how am i supposed to talk to my friends", you ask? "my school posts updates to facebook that i wanted to keep up to date with"? you should have instead chosen to isolate yourself during your teenage years like i did
we used to just call our friends on the phone or e-mail each other :P
@lynnesbian imagine a conference call with all 19 people currently assigned the gw2 ranks in the discord...
@lynnesbian if you get a software job at a decent size corporation you could live that reality regularly
@lynnesbian ah yes, the wild techbro
"technology isn't for using or understanding! it's for lording over people and feeling really smug all the time. what's that? helping someone? why would i help anyone? i'm here to feel superior!"
@lynnesbian see also regional variants of the Techbroius Fuckboii:
T. Fuckboii, s. Macintoshii - "well you wouldn't be having this problem if you used apple like i do. they don't get viruses you know"
T. Fuckboii, s. Linuxus - "this is why you should just run linux! what do you mean you need accessibility and documentation? if you don't know how to do that you just shouldn't use computers, ugh!"
