You have entered a strange social space in an advanced state of
disintegration, but one that nonetheless refuses to die. Some (like me)
cling to it because it's darkly amusing; others (again like me), because
it's an occasional source of insight or information; and others (like
Malecki & his fellow-travellers) because they're ravers who can survive
only in a toxic atmosphere (that they're largely responsible for
poisoning). It was supposed to have been euthanized a couple of months ago,
but it inexplicably lingers on, sustained by the consciously indecisive
Spoon collective. Welcome aboard.
