A thread about finding the nature of the shitposts (shitposting) -- their meaning and their definitions
I realized that in the international omnilogy forum there were mentioned shitpost
. Now it's the first official and serious thread to find clear meaning and definition (definitions) of these comparatively neologismic words.
Some of the definitions
There are a lot of definitions around the world. I'll represent some of them over here.
- From Wikipedia: "Shitposting is the act of posting large amounts of content of "aggressively, ironically, and trollishly poor quality" to an online forum or social network, in some cases intended to derail discussions or otherwise make the site unusable to its regular visitors." (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shitposting Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License)
- Some definitions from Urban dictionary: 1. "The constant posting of mildly amusing but usually unfunny memes, videos or other pictures that are completely random or unrelated to any discussions." by Chief Cutting Ham, 2. "1: The failure to make a constructive post
2: The inability to add useful information to a forum
3: Worthless overly offensive generally racists posts written in a manner which aggravates others." by Chunky Milk, 3. "When you post on Internet forums and don't give a shit what you're saying. In general, being a bad person." by germanboy66. (https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Shit%20Posting)
- 4. From 'Know your meme': "“Shitposting” is an Internet slang term describing a range of user misbehaviors and rhetoric on forums and message boards that are intended to derail a conversation off-topic, including thread jacking, circlejerking and non-commercial spamming. On 4chan, the byproduct of shitposting is referred to as cancer." (http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/shitposting)
So, according to these, I think that mainly the meaning is that shitposts (and shitposting) is something bad.
