Yesterday I mentioned I’m too introverted to make use of social networking sites. Well, here is the perfect antisocial networking site, just for people like me: Bugroff. Warning: Rude language.

    Dammit, I so want to see that as a real site!

    “hi, wna se px of me?”

    /seconded P’Kay

    Bugroff is an antisocial networking site. Kind of like real life, being holed up in you parents’ basement, playing World of Warcraft for 18 hours a day.

  3. Kimari says:

    … This is the first social networking site I actually want to join. Who knew? Reverse psychology really does work.

  4. scragar says:

    I’ve never really seen any value in social networking sites, after all they only appear to be for people with no friends to claim “I have 200 mates” or some such.

    1 question, who thinks the term “Myspace Code” should have a capital offense tagged onto it? It’s plain HTML and CSS(often in the body which is terrible), nothing to do with myspace.

    Scragar, Livejournal works quite well for me to keep track of my friends, many of whom are in the chicago area (which is a fairly huge metro area) and the rest of whom are scattered across the country.

  6. Sem says:

    Same here. The only thing I use to keep contact with my friends is msn messenger and even then I don’t chat all that much with them.

    On the other hand the fact that Burgoff even exists and that we are talking (commenting ? writing ?) about it proves the following quote of Terry Pratchett’s Maskerade :

    “People who didn’t need people needed people around to know that they were the kind of people who didn’t need people.”

    I rest my case. Now I’m off to go show off that I don’t need people by being an obnoxious wallflower at some frat party :).

  7. Scourge says:

    Isn’t it Bugroff and not Burgoff Shamus?

  8. scragar says:

    @ Dragonbane:
    I stand corrected in your case then, although you must admit that around 90% of their users join for the very reason I listed(or atleast it looks like it).
