Consuming things aren't necessary be part of the economic scheme. But even in that consuming isn't just passive, for example when consuming services we consume all the aspect that particular service can give which can be active activities. When we use an imageboard we have access all the activities it offers which includes writing. Btw even reading isn't passive as it's decoding and interpreting strings of symbols (letters) which is an active process despite we get
during that and not really give
. Of course reading usually can't give the chance of feedback, reaction hence the reward of fame from others unlike writing.
Here we arrived to the fact that writing on imageboards can give positive (and negative to be honest) feedback, rendering the writing not just a l'art pour l'art act, and even fame. This fame can go to that certain thought written in that particular post which then could give birth to a meme. Other times this fame creates a persona (like Wojak or ferenc) which can get credit later on.
I did not wish to imply to fit the behaviour in question into an existing -ism but I was curious if you could come up with some catchy name.
