Keeper of useless information
I tried to shitpost once but I couldn't afford the stamps.
In forum terms, a shitpost is a post that has very little content and adds no real value to the thread as a response and is only made because the user wanted to put something for shits and giggles.I've never even really known what "shitposting" means, I feel like an old fart here.
I don't understand why people intentionally spam or shitpost. To my mind, people who intentionally shitpost or spam in otherwise-productive or orderly discussions are basically admitting that they're proud to be the Internet equivalent of a black hole or a bottom feeder.
If your first reaction to seeing something good, beautiful, promising, productive, or positive is "I should shit all over this," you're a very sad and pathetic being indeed, and you're another part of the reason the rest of us can't have nice things.
