That's all very insightful but you are only talking of the practical application of nihilism and using your own definiton of the word.
That's usually not allowed.
A nihilist rejects the concept of intrinsic, inerent, or immanent value.
None of you are really nihilists. You are like the gay Christian; everything in the Bible is brilliant and uplifting except for that part in which God says that it is detestable for men to have sexual relations. So long as you ignore that little detal, your identity is sound. (Yes, I have argued with this person before and had to give up because, like most of you, they were inserting their own sub-definitions in order to fit the concept more squarely onto themselves.)
Perhaps you (some of you) have achieved a state of nihilism at some time or another, but were just unable to or uninterested in maintaining that state, because you are right back to where you started, only with different values in mind.
That's not nihilism. I know it sounds tough and dangerous, but you should choose another word that actually describes what you do.
(The use of "you" in this case refers to the forum users broadly but if you feel you are an exception, then you probably are.)
