No, this isn’t an article about How-old.net. It’s about a term called “oldnet“.
Like the services, the people who have been using the internet since those times are also called oldnet. They are in their 30’s to 50’s and up now.
Though it is no big deal that older people are on the internet, when someone says “oldnet” about someone, they usually mean it in a bad way. This is often used in reference to old trolls who try to reinvent themselves into today’s “shitlords”, but still have no real sense of humor.
You can recognize negative oldnet by the level of thought policing they attempt wherever they are. There is no room for discussing anything other than telling them how right they are. They miss the old days when it was harder to get rid of insane people spewing word salad and streams of text diarrhea against whoever triggered their oversensitivity to living on Earth. The fact that this is the internet seems to trouble them as much now as it did then.
Basically, someone is oldnet because they failed to “get a life”, and base too much of their confidence on people agreeing with them online.
