Do you believe the MAL community is toxic?

I kind of do. I never heard of the word shit taste before coming there.

I dont even pay enough attention to the community there to know.

No I do not. Like on here, everyone is entitled to their own opinions, and everyone has one.

Does not mean you should say them.

I for one think it is rude to insult other's tastes in anime.

And why not, that is 'free speech', is it not? If you can't take criticism you shouldn't be online.

Honesty is different than diplomacy.

Am I not free to complain about this community for not abiding by the untold social rules of the real world? Because I believe I have the right.

What right do I have to abuse my freedom of speech and knowingly offend others?

Honesty is different than diplomacy. Just because it's not illegal, doesn't mean you should be free to do it. I for one think others have crappy taste, but I don't say anything, because it is rude and offensive. I can't spout my opinions, even online, unless I want others to look down on me for what I say. I reserve the right to judge, but it doesn't give me the right to knowingly offend someone else.



People are not always going to play by YOUR rules, play fair and nice, and use proper etiquette and discretion. The world is full of offensive people that aren't going to let you censor them. You can't police the world. Just avoid that place and stay off of there if it offends your sensibilities that much. But if you ask me you need some thicker skin. Good taste and consideration for others is very important, but If I let everyone who doesn't like what I like hurt me I'd likely be dead right now.

I agree. Everyone has different tastes. If you do come across somebody who has a different opinion than you do on something, just think "Does this person's opinion have any effect on the things I like?" and when you realize it doesn't move on.

I know that, you're already stating the obvious.You act as if I don't know it, and thus inform me, as if I were ignorant when I am not. I just state that I believe the community to be toxic based on my stay there. I'm not even attempting to police the world, I am merely asking for others opinions on the matter for the sake of discussion.

It's not like I am hurt or anything. Thank you for the consideration, but I was merely displeased and dismayed at the state of affairs and asked if this community felt similar.

Also, to reiterate my edited post, I don't believe I have the right to go and offend others. There's harassment laws out there, you could be fired on account of your racism, etc.

I love using that site, however I never do anything in the community. I do love using it to find voice actors and getting some other info. Very helpful.

I lurk around MAL sometimes. The maturity level of its users is quite entertaining. Which reminds me, it's time to check the Aldnoah Zero section to watch Inaho fanboys and (what's left of) Slaine fanboys rage hard.
