I personally like the fact that I can come online and not feel like I have to act a certain way so I don't get attacked by the members, and that I can freely discuss essentially anything as I please. How about you guys/girls? 🙂
Huh... Y'know, I never thought about it that way. Now that you mention it though, this sorta antagonizing is probably why I don't usually frequent imageboards anymore; post an opinion that doesn't fit their narrative, and they're bound to call you all sorts of really mean things.
I also like the feeling that I'm acquainted with everyone here. It's easy to lose yourself in larger communities, but it's impossible not to bump into familiar faces on Lewd. By my mark, this gives the individual users personality in addition to the community itself, which isn't something I can say for most online forums.
