I will use social media as a term to define the popular social media sites like Youtube, Instagram, or Facebook, which have follower or subscriber rates as your level of superiority. More followers equal a better person who deserves more pampering and attention despite their true physical personality.

This site is becoming more of a social media, something that contradicts the fundamental quality of this site. I understand that I am using social media as a negative connotation, however I believe I do not need to present any examples to show justification of my bashing of social media.

The idea of hierarchy of popularity is the opiate of the DDO masses.

You could say this 3 years ago and it would be both equally true and equally false. The site isn't really "becoming" anything - it fluctuates, but it's always been roughly like this (though with different members).
#UnbanTheMadman

"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

I honestly don't know what you're trying to say in the OP, but I agree that DDO has become more conversational and trivial.

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas...
Is...
Youuuuuu

I'm new and therefore highly committed to the realm of debate and discussion. We newbies aren't necessarily the problem in this case. I think the older members who no longer debate but rather have become ingrained in the social flow of the site to such a high degree are actually the main problem.

But I'm not super sure on that as I've only been observing for a few days now.

I only came back 3 times, lol. That isn't too bad. But, I am definitely addicted.

Little of DDO reminds me of my friends taking selfies or posting complaints about Wisconsin weather. In fact this website is the perfect escape from that.
