Do you think being on CR is like a game?

I really feel you. Some people just get off to being rude. There is nothing wrong with a little joking around, but a lot of sites (especially YouTube) take it way beyond reasonable bounds.

I think you take things far too seriously. You shouldn't dwell on the little things so much.

For me being on crunchyroll is a substitute for real life interaction right now (ya pathetic), not so much of a game but a place to talk about stuff we all have in common or make interenet friends .

I get what you mean about the flamers/trolls but you got to realize that the internet provides complete anonymity and allows for people to show who they really are without any repercussions. There is alot of people out there that are complete jackasses and the interent is the perfect home for them.

What are we to do? you cant that's the problem... the internet is its own beast and you cant change it without turning it into something completely different. Best advice I have to offer is to turn the other cheek and just flat out ignore it. Whats the saying? sticks and stones can break my bones but words will never hurt me! hahah wow corny but thats all I can think of

As long as there are no consequences, there will be no limit to what people say or do, because there are no repercussions to be afraid of. This is just one of the bittersweet qualities of the internet after all. It's easy to say anything you want behind a mask.

You have a bit of a problem with your entire argument in my opinion. You say people are just trying to be themselves and yet the people you are complaining about are just being themselves as well since they are free to do so without any major consequence as was stated above. You have to take the good with the bad but you have to remember, it is the internet. That works in your favor as well because you can easily ignore it. If you can't then perhaps you should seek some help because there is some issue there that needs to be dealt with. You can't do anything about what other people do on the internet for the most part so there is no reason to get stressed over it. There is also the option of just not being on the internet if you can't handle it either.

There is an entire section called "forum games" which would make being on this site a game.

Also this is practice.
Not a game.
Not a game.
Practice.

Thanks! How motivating! There is no help in this hell. So I guess this is it then. Internet is useless. Artistic people are not meant for these places afterall. Thank you for being so cool and understanding and sorry for being alive.


Calm down, you can't go around the internet expecting everyone chanting world peace and unity. If you haven't figured that out yet then I suggest you get off before you find something that really offends you. And this site is one of the least troll infested sites I've ever come across, and the trolls that are here are generally very vanilla when it comes to the stuff they say. Its all in good fun.

People annoy me. When trolls annoy me, I copy and paste what they say back to them rather than type up an unwritten, witty reply that they'll just ignore. It's either that or use the "Block" button. Get a mod.

Given your responses to people that are trying to give you the best advice possible for the situation you are referring to I kind of have to say you make yourself a giant target for trolls. People that whine and cry and have the "woe is me" mentality are just prime targets. You seriously need to rethink your priorities in life if the internet and people on it are causing you so many issues.
