.org morons FAILED to notice it's time to quit derping and start worshipping.
: verisimilitude: there are other 'old unix' cargo cults in the historic record, also; all are quite similar to cat-v
, near as i can tell.
: tl;dr : cat-v
was a bunch of dorks collected around a chosen kid, trying to do things. chosen kid died and they turned to scar tissue.
: jej, so this is a cat-v
: kinda why the whole "do you have money ? no ? then shut the fuck up." works so well socially, personally and in general. because they... don't. and they know how to get it and know they can't get it. hence "cat-v
: so basically, this is a sort of republic-like, some people got together trying to do [what their idea of] good is. not nearly as dead as cat-v
.org thing for instance.
: either "momentary lapse into lucidity" by dubious author with VERY clenched teeth, usually decade+ old ; or else cat-v
: in other weird news, i've apparently gotten hella-good at handling wanna-be leahs, on the basis of nothing in particular. meditation, i guess, not like i've even interacted with the unfiltered refuse of angloshpere since the cat-v

: at least in intent/intuition i can see the cat-v
, wanted to be tmsr, didn't know what it wants or how it goes thesis.

: ben_vulpes unsurprisingly. pretty much all of extant "foss" is cat-v

.org idiots are instructive in this field. what matters to the powerless is an exercise left for onanists.
: but if mircea_popescu vanishes we know what the future of tmsr looks like! what, you ask ? why, #cat-v

: asciilifeform: i had cat-v
and 9front in some high regard, i was actually surprised there was a channel, with ~people~ in it
: in any event, kudos to mircea_popescu for the staying power demonstrated in #cat-v
! gems were mined, oh how the lulzgems were mined.
: so basically, the cat-v

: in other news, this cat-v
