Scream into The Void
There's something cathartic about firing off a moany tweet or a frustrated status update, but who wants to be that person? The Void is a nocial media tool that spares your dignity while providing that lovely feeling of release. Before long your post will literally fade away without contributing to the net negativity of the universe.

I came up with this as a way to blow off steam, make sweary posts and comment on strangers in ways that I would be embarrassed to have stand on any of my actual accounts. Make your post, hit enter, and it is added to top of the wall'o'text. Over the coming hours and days it is pushed down and faded out as others vent their own frustrations. There is no caching whatsoever, while this was tempting in many ways I really wanted this to be impermanent, it's not just an anonymous rant-blog, it will never add more than 2KB of grumpiness to the world. It's bookmarked on my homescreen and I think my FB friends appreciate it, hope you find it useful!

Thanks for all visits, very exciting to see something I made getting used!
Thanks also to garius for some feedback on security and how to solve an issue I was having with doubles.

This is great, but I found a bug: long strings with no spaces don't wrap.

Let me get right on that, I really appreciate it! Can you tell me where it's not wrapping, do you mean in the input box? I am seeing the output as fine on long strings, the lorem ipsum dump for example.

This was in the output. My test was HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH - though possibly with a longer number of Hs

Ah, I see how you mean, yeah a sufficiantly long groan won't break nicely, will look into it. Thanks again!
