 What IS adequacy all about????

 Author:  Topic:  Posted:

What is Adequacy all about? From what I have read, many of the posts and articles are satire while some happen to be serious and some maybe are trolls. Its been debated before I think but people only ever scratch the surface.

Here I intend to write what I think it is all about and to show you something dark and sinister I have discovered about

Yes there are serious articles and piss-take articles here. Some people critise other sites and some other sites critise them. But i think that shouldnt be in it, unless you really think so.

Adequacy is really good for stories and information and stuff. It suceeds where all other sites fail..but is it just all of it or is there another, deeper dark part to adequacy?

I think there was something put which made us not allowed to question anything..or anyone here for that matter. But regardless of that I must try to at least attempt to try and sum it up. Because who else will try do it too?

I think its been about 5 months since I got here.. because it was less than before doesnt mean that I cant speak about it at all..quite the opposite of that - if you know what I mean.

Maybe some people here think its not actually here for something but I think that the other sites are missing a bit of it really. When I say that, I mean that it isnt what could be done without proper thought. Of course some people would argue - that based on the earlier assumption that it might not have succeeded as they predicted. Well, that's just opinion and while opinion might be fact if its not in the context of whats here it might also not be whats really important.

The one thing noticble about adequacy is the depth of itself compared to other ones. I imagined that it came of chance but now I think it is a far more mysterious thing. Like why exactly cant we figure out why? We are here for a reason yes or no? We dont know - thats simply put but not a direct way to solve a piece of it. Another point is there is SOMETHING in the background. I dont know what, but its alive in some way which isnt like we think of. Its not so much controling as created by all of us. Maybe its just a lot of it in the same area. Afterall, haven't we seen many of it before in other places? Im sure thats least I hope. The alternative is very dire. Whats not true is what really goes on - the sum of its parts...which is us. Unless of course you think that we aren't parts but that we are just part of something else. That's going off topic though.

So to sum it up - I dont believe it is possible to fully understand Adequacy. So would people stop trying..not that they can't have the right to thinking it as is happening here..I dont want to destroy my own post I think...but I dont know if thats covered by what Ive said. hmmm interesting.

That's the best thing I've seen posted here for a while. You are quite right in your analysis and I agree that the alternative is dire, indeed.

You're Inadequate... (5.00 / 1) (#4)

For even having to post this question. You're even more inadequate because you can't speak English (this criticism is withdrawn if it ain't your native tongue).

The secret behind this place is that it is run by a cabal of supermen and hyper-sexy women-type-things. Their extreme adequacy in all aspects of life gives this site a vibrant excellence that permeates all aspects of its glorious existence.

At least you have one thing right: "I dont believe it is possible to fully understand Adequacy. So would people stop trying." Plebeians beware! You can't understand, so don't bother.

Unfair accusations in this diary. (5.00 / 1) (#5)
by Anonymous Reader on Sat Apr 13th, 2002 at 09:06:50 PM PST
I believe this diary entry unfairly accuses some of the writers here, much as I once did when I first started reading this site (just days ago).

In my view, the diaries and news articles here are written by people who hold strong viewpoints. We should not make accusations of untruth against those people, merely because their viewpoints seem outrageous or far-fetched. Many people hold views you may find outlandish, but we must learn to respect them for who they are.

Attacking my sexual prowess in a public forum is truly 'below the belt', as it were. Forgive me if I have a different skill set than most of the liberalist men out there.

I wasn't attacking your sexual prowess, merely (reluctantly) pointing out a trend. You should be proud of your skill set, it's terrific, it's wonderful, etc., etc.

Adequacy is a place where the common intellectual rabble dance for the amusement of the all-powerful editors.
