    I think there's two different modes for venting, between personal and online:

    Personal venting is, by definition, personal, so it's just governed by the normal rules of social interaction. If you like someone you might charitably hear them out without providing a response - which is emotional labor - or you might condition your being that venting target on being able to solicit advice, or you might not be willing to hear them out at all.

    Online, unless you've specifically addressed your venting to someone, you're just kind of venting into the room, right? I was going to say the void, but it's not -- there are people there who may be more or less invested in your wellbeing, which is why you've directed your complaint there and not a pillow. And you've spread that little bit of emotional labor between all your audience. You shouldn't expect a response, but you don't owe a response in turn to someone who wants to engage with what you threw down.

    Online is always a double edged sword, because we're not face to face. Not everyone knows your personal story, not everyone cares, not everyone knows your intentions or implications, not everyone cares. But if you just dump into a room, you will, more often than not, get something back whether you want it or not.

    Think of all the times someone has said something, even in chat, that may have been a thing that landed well with their friends based on some personal context they all shared but immediately got dogpiled or ignored because it was awful. We've likely all personally dealt with it at least once.

And you've spread that little bit of emotional labor between all your audience. You shouldn't expect a response, but you shouldn't also *not* expect a response, but you don't owe a response in turn to someone who wants to engage with what you threw down. Differently from personal venting though, you can't not opt-out of the conversation. Sure, you can avoid participating in it, but same as politics, it's there in the room.

    Yeah, sometimes I'll vent here because I'm looking for sympathy, but there is literally nothing anyone here can do about any of the horseshit that's happening in my life, so it's very much not expected that anyone will respond. Sometimes you just want to be heard, though, and I only have one friend who I can confide in, and it's not fair to put all that on her every time, so I rely on [chat] to pick up the slack.

    Hoo boy do I sweat way too hard to live this life. Which really was one of the things I thought I'd stop having trouble with after losing a shit load of weight, but it turns out nah, I just sweat like a river doesn't matter how big or small I am.

    its not really when you realize that Planet Fitness has more members than they do positions to work out at any given gym. They make money on people not being there, so something that literally scares you into not exercising for fear of doing it too much is perfect.

    The point is to socially ostracize those dudes at the gym in the really thin tank tops who are drinking from a gallon jug of water and high fiving each other while grunting as loud as possible

    what it really does is make loud noises whenever someone makes any sort of noise while exercising to let them know "HEY NO NOISES" (some of them are automatic the one at my gym had a person push a button when they heard a noise).

    They are real, and they do go off sometimes. I haven't heard it lately but yeah, if you're slamming weights or being a goose it goes off. I don't know if the person gets kicked out though. Seems like public humiliation is the solution.

    ehhhhhhhhhhhh

    there are some dumbbell exercises where once you get up in weight, the safest thing to do is drop them on the ground. something like dumbbell bench press where you use your legs to boost it up into position

    you'll probably be fine not doing those though for general/casual fitness, which is what PF is trying to court
