and again, who is Carp? is a website that functions as a landing pad for a particular type of internet nerd, those of us who catalog and remember everything we see, constantly looking for a new kind of discourse that can challenge our internet personas.

The creators of rdrama built a variety of discursive tricks into the basic configuration of the website.
