The amount of truth in this picture.

All us Usenet/IRC grey hairs are just sitting here rolling our fucking eyes. First generation raised online - 4chan, newgrounds and SA of all places? Spare me.
None of those communities could survive without the media heavy, ball pit framework for these sites put in place by the generation preceding the so-called first generation. You don’t hear from us usually because we’re smart enough to blame people for being people and not for the sites they use. I’m not even in my thirties and I consider all the sites mentioned above as new-generation things. The tumblr generation couldn’t possibly fuck up the world wide web (remember that name for the HTTP clusterfuck that is now ‘the internet’?) any more than you kids already did.
Unfortunately I’m young enough to still enjoy making the odd hypocritical rant like this on social media - shucks, that really sticks a fork in the whole ego trip for everyone!
If you’ve never known a world without the world wide web, you shouldn’t be commenting as its not exactly ancient history and we’re all still here!
I wouldn’t worry about this little internet thing anyway. If it all goes to hell, we’ll turn it off for you and start again as we did once before. Just don’t come asking us to make it easy for you to fuck it up next time. Enjoy what you guys spawned! We’d be embarrassed too, but that trolling thing got old before Realplayer finished buffering for us.
