What if is it normal shut down permanently?

Say that this site closed its proverbial doors. Would you miss it or just find someplace else to waste time? Would you miss the people here or just forget about them? I think I would miss some of the people I've gotten to know here.

There are a lot of people here who spend a lot of time answering and posting and I think it would be like the end of an era to them.

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • If IIN dies there will be another site to replace it. Not saying I'll go somewhere else but there would be a replacement for sure.

    • I think the powers that be already have a backup site. I don't know what it's called but...

  • I honestly think if Is It Normal close down that a part of me would certainly be heartbroken.

    • So, what do you like about it? What keeps you coming back?

      • Rosie is a member of high distinction. However, I keep coming back because there is acceptance, even an egalitarian admiration of creative assholeism. People at IIN are astute, often afflicted by psychological problems, but they have a healthy "fuck the world" attitude. And Lord knows, if anyone needs to get fucked, it's me.

      • This place is fun, and interesting, and I get to help, and impact other people, and be helped, impacted by other people from all other the world.

    • Oh come on, tell the truth.

      You would be doing one of those theatrical heaving sob and crying episodes worthy of Hollywood.

  • I wouldn’t go anywhere else as it is I already don’t know why I come on here in the first place. But I would probably miss it a lil when I get bored and have nothing to do.

    • I often wonder why I come here. I guess it makes me feel like I'm not the only fucked up one.

  • While I would miss coming here, I'd just go somewhere else.

    • You're one of the people who's comments I would miss. Others are rose, mcbean, swickdinging, megadriver (whom I'm GOING to have whiskey with some day), and donteatstuff.

  • I don’t think you understand, I’m your friend the zombie and I LIKE TURTLES.

    But in all honesty, I would be a little sad

  • So be it. Often I think im addicted to the concept of posting on forums rather than just IIN. If this place ever shut down, I would migrate to some other place to post.

  • I'd miss it, but I'd go somewhere else with less bs moderation going on.

  • I would miss it, especially the chat room.

    • I've never been in the chat. I think it's some exclusive club where us peasants would be shunned.

  • I'd buy the domain and relaunch it.

    I would then put in actual code to correct the troll issue. There would still be trolls, but they'd have to use different devices to continue, since I'd do imei look ups, to make it cost prohibitive.

          • Just the internet and by doing it, screwing up, trying stuff etc. Read a lot of books and put them into practice. I don't learn well from schooling.

            • Me either. There are some free resources here and there that im gonna look into when I get time.

      • He's talking about samefagging. Samefags would need a collection of burner phones to get around imei lookups. Udi (the owner) made a series of changes that make samefagging difficult. There was once a user called green_boogers that had an army of alts. He is not operating anymore.

  • I'd probably miss it... Where else am I gonna rant about internal combustion, Mercedes, driving like a hooligan, loving very skinny women, whiskey and share my opinions on everything else without being asked XD

  • It'll be like Sodahead all over again.

    • What's sodahead? I know the name but can't place it. It's a website, right?

      • Yeah. It was similar to this website, but more fun. You know how we have a pedophile and incest problem here? Well, Sodahead mainly focused on news around the world, so most of the debates were between Leftist and Rightist. Then you'll have some crazy people, etc. You can get some very good conversations there, and since the site was very active, you get replies FAST!

        Like I'll never forget the woman who argued with me about how children should wear anything they want, even lingerie. I felt differently of course, because we're not talking about teenagers, and young adults. We're talking about children, single digits. Because France had child models and was advertising lingerie and adult looking outfits for children, and it caused a lot of debate in France. It was insane.

        Eventually, the company changed direction and stopped all user interfacing with the site.

        • The idea of children dressing like that just sent a cold chill down my spine. They actually did that in France? Wow!

          • One of the photos had this little girl shirtless with her long hair and this thick necklace to cover her chest; France done lost their minds that year.

            Sadly, if IIN shut down, I wouldn't be as upset as I was when Sodahead closed. Sodahead had so many options, and you didn't have to pay to chat or have friends; and it was a great source of daily news. Here, I get to read how people in their 20's feel old or ashamed for still being a virgin, and dumb shit.

            • France is a country of cowards, uncle pervy's, and miscreants. Any country in Europe where incest isn't illegal is truly the trash state of Europe.

              We all need our dumb shit to make us feel less dumb.

              BTW, you and I would be good friends irl. I'm a fundamentalist (and traditionalist) like you.

              Nothing suggestive here, as im happily married. I just agree with your opinions a lot. : ) I wish you commented more. It would be fun and give me someone to talk to on here that I can relate to.
