How do you think browsing tohno-chan affects you mentally?

Ive noticed myself becoming more and more cynical as i browse this site more and more. Don't get me wrong, there is a lot of good to be found on here, but it is dangerous.

Tohno-chan appears to be a double edged sword. The fact that you have a community similar to yourself, which attracts most people to this site, also causes them to confuse cynical thoughts as truth. And I think the more time you spend on here, the more depressed you get as a person. Which creates some sort of cycle. Being sad about life and doing nothing to change it, and coming back to the site for advice from other users who are just as sad as you.

a site that gets a minute two a day worth of new content couldn't have too much effect, but if you're new and want to become one of us i suggest pouring over the archive, there are lots and lots of good posts in there, all made by me.

I've heard people refer to this place as being far too depressing to hang out at, which seems fair. Lot of the founding members left because of the negative vibes here. Calling it dangerous also seems fair, as talk of suicide is not exactly uncommon. There's also very clearly a lot of acceptance for hate. I think you're probably more likely to be called out for liking something rather than hating something. We're like a black hole of negativity and despair. As the slogan says we really have no way of knowing how many people here have killed themselves so far.

Personally I've been on here for many years now. Could even go as far as to say I've sacrificed a lot for this place. To be perfectly honest there have been times when I've had the opportunity to really change my life, but decided to stick to the tc mindset. Kinda funny considering it's a place where people have told me to fuck off and go back to xyz more times than I can count, in spite of TC being the main site I've called home for the past five years. I dropped 4chan all together and have never been a fan of reddit or any other such sites. I don't really have anywhere else to go. TC means a lot to me and I'm not exaggerating when I say I've come here every day for years. Image boards are a dime a dozen, but I feel like TC is truly one of a kind and you're not gonna find these kinda people anywhere else. People here have called me every name in the book but I still consider them family, a very screwed up family sure but a family never the less.

Recently I have started to wondered if I haven't become too relent on tc. Like a sort of hugbox where everyone sees things the same way for the most part. I don't often find myself arguing or even disagreeing with people here very often and I can't help but wonder if that's not making me weak. Someone recently said I put up a protective bubble and refuse to grow up, I'm curious if this place is part of that.

I won't go as far as to say that Tohno-chan saved my life but it's nice to have a slow, safe, place.
Once you realize you don't have the balls to kill yourself and find hate too tiring nothing bothers you anymore.

I haven't been a regular on this site for a few years. Is it slower than before? Or am I misremembering things?

I dunno man I don't really take it that seriously. It's not a very fast site so I find it a little hard to. I just like to check in every now and then and see what people say. I do kinda wonder what I'd do if it was more active though.

I guess I do kinda find it depressing when people talk about how bad they have it, though. I don't know if it's empathy or something but reading about how depressed someone is makes me depressed. I feels kinda cheap to say it's empathy though, because honestly I don't care about a random stranger. Just out of apathy is all. Maybe like, reverse projection? Not like it really affects me or anything though, I just go back to watching anime.
