      Why is nobody talking about this? I'm nowhere near done but it's crazy good. Is it because it's "fantasy"?

          IQfy makes me never want to see Zoomers yap about Millennials ever again. For all their faults Millennials at least seem capable of critical reading and complex thought, two skills that the current state of this board proves that Zoomers decidedly lack.

    This was a popular book on IQfy around 2013, back when we discussed literature rather than politics and religion. I would have never read anything by John Crowley were it not for some anon's high praise of him.

          newbie. 2016-2019 IQfy was utterly embarrassing with reddit pseuds being 70% of the place.

            Why was 2014 the breakthrough point? I know peak lit wasn't as late as 2021, where threads that could have been covered by simple googling relatively more drowned out good ones.

            Board bottomed out completely 2-3 years ago for some reason

            That was when early 90s-born "boomers" hit almost or at age 30 and discussion on IQfy became too unmoderated, too raided by /misc/-lite, anti-Christian israelite shills, and leftypol, and too generally entry level for them. Most of the one's still talking instead are on /r/truelit.

            Yeah it’s easy to tell many migrated to truelit

            Board hit critical mass in terms of polcel, trump-voting christcucks coming here without the critical skills to analyze/critique literature.

            I never went there but some anon said when it started the christcucks kept being challenged for historical evidence by actual students of history and left for here when they got destroyed in arguments.

            2015-2018 was embarrassing but it was IQfy embarrassing. From 2018-now is mostly a low traffic board for discord factions, subreddits and twitter stans to passively fight for board dominance and rewrite the ideological leanings of past years.

      Anon, I’ve only recently come back after a very, very long hiatus. Do you happen to remember when both alt-lit/tao lin and DFW posts used to regularly occur on /lit? I’m trying to remember when it was exactly I used to come here, and all I can recall from that time was those two topics were always under discussion.

        2013-18. which overlaps with least shit lit, now that anon refreshed my memory. both are mediocre.

          Cheers. The board seems really different now. Even if it was shitty discussion, at least it was still mostly literature discussion back then. The past few weeks I’ve been coming here the bord seems heavily inundated with philosophy (tho there was that then, it wasn’t to this degree), religion, and cultural/political or girl-trouble discussion masked with a “Books about…”.

          I probably should’ve just stayed gone. Anyway, thanks again.

            The smart zoomers went to the IQfy discord but it's still mediocre compared to 2015 IQfy.

            zoomzooms are confusing messageboards with social media. they come here to chat with their 'friends' (3 NSA agents and a schizophrenic man) as if this a discord server when this format is far better suited to discussion and shitposting

            I cannot for the life of me understand the appeal of Discord. I guess it offers voice chatting, but other than that, what's so special about it? I'd rather just post on a fricking message board. Or an IRC channel.
