    BBS's were all the rage back in the day. They were pretty much messageboards. Then things like like IRC, ICQ etc... took over, real time chat shit. Now we're back to message boards. I'm not sure where I'm going with this, I just think it's interesting.

    Message boards are like Twitters that you can actually follow along with and make sense of.

    Yeah and you can always read back. I think that's what killed IRC. Not that it's dead or anything, but that shit was huge.

    Fuck chat. I type slowly/poorly, I like to give a little thought to what I write, and I don't know all the retarded shorthand...
