I had to take down Weebs.is, Blackpill.is, RGIF.is, and JBpill.is because they were becoming too popular

Sites like Vintologi, Truecels, ZooPill, and Whitepill were not popular enough relative to the four big sites in this site farm, so I had to take down the four big sites for a few days to give the four little sites a chance to catch up, lest those site owners get demoralized by how they were falling behind. Now the traffic is about equal.

This is just a routine maintenance measure, like rotating tires on your car to make sure that some of them don't get unevenly worn.

Incels.is went down, but they're already back to their former activity levels. That shows their base of users is more loyal than ours.

It's due to the network effect, you need to attract a critical mass of users.

This site was on the way to get there before you suffered from the technical issues. The smaller sites are unlikely to ever reach a critical mass.

Suicide is the answer.
Everything I do in life I fail, especially if it depends on attracting ppl to it. FML

Therefore, you have to focus on working with machines instead.
Machines can utterly fail too, whether physical or abstract.

For example, such as all those machines invented by Wile E. Coyote (physical) or mathematical equations leading to nowhere which Albert Einstein wasted more than half of his life looking at (abstract).

I read that you guys were closing trucels.

(and possibly roping?)

Does this mean this site is getting the axe too?

Because this place gets shut down more than the DailySoymer.

I haven't posted because most of the times when I come back, I'm unable to connect.

Also, I might be traveling soon, and I don't want to be on the no-fly list.

(so no more visiting jbpill for me.)
