I'm sure I'm not the only one who finds the "You Can Count On Me" "Achievement" to be incredibly patronizing, if not outright insulting. You do not win business by giving out meaningless prizes for doing what, in principle, you should be doing anyway (paying for copyrighted works).

If you want to win business, do things that actually provide value for your customers (like providing uncensored feeds to suitably verified customers) rather than giving out meaningless tokens that do more to insult your customers than to provide value.

Can't you just tick the Achievement Privacy, and be done with it?

You can disable Notifications by going here, un-checkmarking both options for "Achievements" and clicking Save Changes.
https://www.crunchyroll.com/acct/?action=notifications

You can also make it hidden from everyone but yourself by going to the link below and placing a checkmark next to where it says "Make Achievements private".

I've already done that; this isn't a matter of not wanting to be bothered with it. I just think that the fact that they "award" it at all is insulting.

Sure, the award is repetitive and annoying, but insulting? Nah... just ignore it and move on. You're looking too much into it. Now if Crunchyroll awarded a "You're a jerk!" achievement (which I'm sure BasouKazuma would love to send my way) then I'd be a little upset about it. Well, no... actually, I'd laugh and then ignore it.

Eh, since the achievements are just repetitive garbage I just pay no mind. It's not even worth getting worked up over in the end.

Agreed, it's propaganda BS, and down right insulting. I don't need Crunchyroll to give me a lesson in ethics or morality.

Really? Just ignore it and move on. You seem as if you consider yourself a people with intelligence, how about using that intelligence to ignore formulating irrelevant connections between a silly reward and ethics or morality. The award has no value like you said, thus, why are you trying to give it value with this topic?

Ignore and move on. Spend your time worrying about things that matter...

It's more of a "thanks for being our customer!" than whatever you're interpreting it as.

Achievements are pointless, anyway. I don't pay attention to any of them.
