So, I’m using some Groupthink content in my dissertation and I gotta tell ya, something about writing a formal APA citation for “barelylethal: shitass. (2014).” is really helping me get through the process.

Also, wow, it’s nuts how much the roster here in GT has changed over the years. Looking at posts from 2013, I keep seeing names that never seem to pop up around here anymore. WHY DOES THE WORLD HAVE TO CHANGE.

ETA:

1. Everything I’m looking at is from the first six months of Groupthink 2.0 in 2013. I am absolutely not studying anything currently happening on here.

2. During that period, anything posted to Groupthink could be promoted to the mainpage, so this space was understood to be a lot more public at the time.

3. I’m only looking at conversations about how to handle trolls—the citation above is because I said people were still occasionally mentioning bunny bombing a year later and I needed to back up my statement. I’m not looking at any posts with sensitive discussion on them.
