This is my last post. Yes. I'm completely serious. You see, I'm not who you all think I am. Not at all. 

Currently, I'm a writer for Washington Post, living in a small studio apartment, always looking for the next big  story, barely scraping by sometimes. I was asked several months ago by my editor to do a piece on the so-called 'shitpost' community on Discord that seems to become more and more popular by the day.

Initially, I was intrigued. The humor was bizzare, yet interesting.  Nonsensical, yet genius. I spent several months interacting with people I  had never met before in my life, learning the culture, what was "cool" and what wasn't. 

Eventually, I began to make my own posts, testing the  waters now and then. And eventually my own posts started getting noticed, and maybe for a minute or two I understood why you all do this.  But that didn't last long. 

And with time, I began to notice how stale the content truly was. How the same 'memes' could be spammed over and over again, and still get massive amounts of attention. And I also began to notice something else. The viciousness with which you attacked each other. The semi-constant bullying and harassment. 

Each day, it made me  even more sickened than before, to the point where you people made me  start questioning everything about reality and what I knew about it. I  couldn't eat. I couldn't sleep. I was drinking 2 bottles of whiskey every night. 

But, finally, my mission is complete. Tomorrow, we will be  publishing a comprehensive guide on this group, potentially exposing  some of your members' most well kept secrets. 

I'm deactivating this  account at midnight, but before I do, I just want to let you know you  all make me sick.
