message boards have pretty much ruined my life
To be fair, message boards have shown me people that I wouldn't have otherwise met in real life - I've become a more open-minded person because I had the opportunity to know what different people really think. Also, I wouldn't be half the humanities nerd I am today without all the hints and links to research material I've received from people whose voice I've never really heard (with notable exceptions). It also helped me improve my English (though I know it's far from perfect), so much so that people often ask me whether I've ever lived abroad.
I believe it's time to let it go, but I'm not really in a hurry.
