Is it just me, or is Arfcom depressing as hell?

It seems like every other thread is about the media screwing us, the media screwing up the war, socialist liberals are overrunning our institutions, the West is dying, the economy is about to tank, the younger generation is worthless, half of marriages end in a terrible divorce, the JBTs will be knocking at our door any day now, RFID/Bird Flu/SHTF, race wars, etc.

I've almost sworn off General Discussion because I feel like crap/paranoid after reading a couple threads. Anyone else feel that way?

I find GD light-hearted and amusing.

It is more humorous and entertaining than depressing, but I am an optimist.

Only thing that really pushes all my buttons HARD is the illegal alien invasion shit.

That's the one thing that gets me enough that I have to fight off the urge to start pounding holes in the walls.

Other than that, I find the good/funny stuff outweighs the depressing crap.

I've got to go out and have fun at someone else's expense.

Only when I see widespread ignorance in our population, which isn't TOO often.

Oh yeah I forgot about that. You can spend all day reading about illegals tearing apart our country here.

This site is fuckin funny what are you bitching about.

People buying and shooting guns, discussing ammo and reloading, pistols, history, survival and fitness... Sounds depressing? I do not think so.

You can enjoy other forums other than "general" forum.

If it was depressing, I wouldn't come here.

GD.......often
ARFCOM...not at all

GD is the only blemish....the technical forums are a playground for me.
Team is like the 'adult swim' version of GD.

GD.....maybe not quite depressing.....more like...dissappointing.

Maybe we can bring back the gay and Chuck Norris threads.

I love G.D.

It's like a Pee Wee's Playhouse for crazy people like me!!!

Trust me when the SHTF you will be glad that ALL gun sites exist.
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 10:33:11 AM EDT
Yes, it is depressing. The first time I wandered into GD I thought it was a plain ole' freakshow. The fact that it no longer surprises me is worrisome.

Getting banned over some dumbass subject in GD (when you aren't going to change anyone's mind anyway) and losing access to such great gun info would be stupid indeed.

The divorce shit is the most depressing of all. Reading that Hasselhoff was disarmed because of some bullshit allegation from his wife gave me a bad dream! eek!

I find it uplifting that I'm not alone in the battles we face.

They're some really good people around here and it is nice to "meet"
them.

When I want to discuss firearms or learn something new, I stick to the gun themed forums; when I want to feel better about myself, I argue with some of the idiots in GD, or as I like to say, Generally Dysfunctional.

Depressed? No. Amused? Yup.

For me, GD is more amazing than depressing...
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 10:48:20 AM EDT
I come here to laugh.
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 10:48:39 AM EDT
I'll take a "depressing" day on arfcom over any day at work everytime
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 10:55:21 AM EDT
Are Chuck Norris Threads banned?
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 10:58:32 AM EDT
i have a hell of a lot of fun in GD. sure there's some depressing shit here, but there's just as much light hearted fun too. the guys who post here are the kind of people i would want to hang out with in real life (well, a good number of them at least)
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 11:01:09 AM EDT
If GD gets to depressing/boring I just read the tech forums
