maybe they are just comfortable with each other because they have similar-ish personalities and know what to expect from each other

do i smell a research paper? "Caste Systems on Internet Message Boards"

draco is cute but he knows hes cute so he takes advantage of it. ron is the exact opposite.. but you know the saying.. all the good guys are either gay or taken. so its not a totally good thing

I asked my girlfriend (anthropologist) what she knew about research done on internet phenomena and she said as far as she knew there had never been a serious attempt to study internet culture

I wouldn't know of any studies on that either, not in anthropology. Media studies, they do this sort of thing. Since that is their field. Sociology, too. And psychology.

Let me look it up on my paper - yea, guess what, it says "social & cultural anthropology" European academic fields aren't identical to the US system.
But hey, I'm sure your gf was just mistaken and there is plenty of reasearch on online caste systems by anthropologists, since they just watch videos in media studies.

You should get on it, right away.

old-timers
highly respected boarders
under-appreciated boarders
average tier
annoying tier
no redeeming qualities tier
intermittently banned tier
who the fuck is this person tier


(if someone is an old timer, they only go there if they don't fit into any other tier.)

I'm beginning to think you may be unable to properly convey yourself without coming off as a huge fucking prick. I did not say I did exhaustive research on the topic and concluded there had never been any academic study done on internet social hierarchy, I said I asked my gf, who is in the field of anthropology (though she is archaeology, not cultural) if she knew of any such research and she had never heard of any. I obviously meant within the field of anthropology because I stated I was asking an anthropologist. Furthermore, you are the one who insinuated studying internet culture would not fall under the umbrella of jobs for anthropologists.

but by all means, please show us some research on the prevalence of cats, the phenomenon of trolling, and the practice of subtracting words and letters in messages for comedic effect
