Shit ain't hard, it's just that hating on NFTs and their community is the new hating on furries. Hating on furries was the new gaybashing. There's a broad swath of society that looks at something new, decides it's new, decides that anyone who likes it needs to be mocked out of existence and then ten years later when the whole world is watching RuPaul's Drag Race they grumble to themselves about the good old days when they could tell poofter jokes. The ugliest parts of society rally around a mutual, willful lack of understanding of whatever is new and speaking as someone older than you allow me to say that the very same people who hate on NFTs eat the same flavor ice cream as those who hated on the dot com bubble.

Was paying $50m for carinsurance.com a good idea at some point? Sure. Is it a good idea now? I dunno, man, purple.com was worth it.

So. Do you understand domain names? Then you understand NFTs. Shazam.
