You see, what the internet does that is completely unheard of in the entirety of human history is put you and me in connection with each other. More than that, but it connects every single human being to every other one, so long as they have a terminal through which they can access is. (Terminals which are becoming more prevalent even in the least developed parts of the world.)
Think of all the change that came about in the 20th century because of the increased ease of spreading messages. Equal rights for women and blacks. Now equal rights for gays. Because people can connect to other people, they do not feel alone. In fact, the lay-men feel more powerful than they ever have before.
Look at Anonymous. A group of (by definition) nobodies who get together to fight (and there is no doubt that they fight) for the beliefs they believe to be right. Beliefs such as freedom and truth. Beliefs that were previously set-down by the forefathers of the US and echoed by every half-decent rights-movement since then.
The internet connects people. How does this apply to FJ? Well, because people have been connected as though they were neighbors, nay, housemates. You and I are chatting as though over our garden fences. Because of that, the tides of change that affect a few of us affect all of us.
People have grown up and matured over time but remained with FJ. Their increased maturity has bled down to those beneath. They remember how things were and how it was like to be immature and are grateful of their maturity, hence they share it with their family; i.e. FJ.
FJ is a family. Affected by the change in the outside world but empathetic to each other. Ready to razz and forgive and aid and comfort in equal measure all under the FJ banner of good-will.
The internet is bringing about a change in the world through connection. Soon it may even change the way governments work, because what relies on connections more than democracy?

Yeah, I do like talking to my housemates over the fence.
but yeah. It'll be interesting to see where FJ goes in the future.
If we keep getting MORE mature, eventually we'll be a philosophical debate site...
But it is nice to know that we're no longer such faggots. I mean, we're still all faggots, but not as bad...
