It's quite simple, idiocracy has arrived. Almost everyone is now a moron incapable of understanding anything.

So I waited too late then to post theories? I had some good theories of Breath of The Wild 2 using the Ocarina of Time again in a revamped effort but now there is no where to post them anybody would actually read. I have tried in Zelda Dungeon forums and got crickets in response.

Game FAQS gives you spammy replies of people just saying 'Thanks' or Hi or stupid shit which I doubt they are even real people. I wonder how much bots HAVE taken over compared to even 4 years ago when it was starting to get worse?

I don't play games, so I don't know about this. But generally posting anything of substance is a waste of time these days.

Do you think it will ever change and where is a good place to go to post anything of substance of value? It feels like we are in a fucking alternate universe!

Based on western history, I would expect it to change in about 1000 years.

You can try posting things of substance in my sub /s/nonmorons or in the Mennonite forum. Anything that is part of modern culture is a lost cause.

We aren't in an alternate universe. We are in the beginning of a dark age of which there have been many in history.

This question has to be asked: is your 'theory' stupid? Because, if it is, then you'll get laughed at and then forgotten.

Newsflash: people read headlines and not articles.

If you have something important to say, shoehorn it into the 300 characters allowed in the headline.

Often times though it cannot be done that way or it ruins what a good theory making it more of an insult.

Keep in mind that you're posting to the fourth generation (at least) that's been dumbed down and made brain-dead by our Socialist/Communist/Brainwashing/Programming/Indoctrination Centers euphemistically called "Public Schools" so don't expect too much from the majority of what are, essentially walking carrots. Consider yourself lucky if you get a response from people that somehow, vaguely approaches the topic you posted about.

That's what I've noticed unless you cater whole hearted to that kind of thinking your done.

Can you provide an example?

How do you know for sure that people aren't reading examples? Maybe the stuff you're posting is so 1: boring, 2: stupid or 3: immature and childish that people just read through it, laugh and move on. Old saying: "When something seems wrong look to yourself for the answer." In other words, check yourself, first. If you're at fault for a thing accept it and grow from it.
