>What in the cunting fuck happened to /leftypol/?
communities thrive on content
for a community like /leftypol/, most of the initial excitement of it was various flavors of leftist arguing about old things. old books, old theories, old conflicts, old people--even when they were arguing with /pol/locks was usually in the context of old movements/wwii etc.
eventually you reach all that you can say about these old things, especially if the board thrives on theory, you have to have some new theory or facet to discuss/argue over. we started to see the same old shit posted all the time in share threads and music threads and so on
so once all the arguing died down between tankies/anarchists/soc dems/whatever, the board mostly became about arguing with retarded /pol/loons and explaining to them over and over again the same tired misconceptions of marxism and so forth. eventually the theoryfags and philosophy students went back to reading theory and philosophy instead of arguing with retards about how, no, they don't think a janitor should be paid as much as a doctor for the hundred-thousand-millionth time.
this isn't to say that /leftypol/ is devoid of new content, but the sort of content it tends to produce is superficial. there isn't anything wrong with memes or catgirls, but if that's all that's coming out of it the sort of people that came for the philosophy and book discussions are going to go back to their philosophy and books.
