MAL scares me... Specially the forums, and their games forums is full of elitist and mean people. ;/
I use it to talk to a friend and for tracking anime.

I stay away from the forums and take reviews with a handful of salt, so I'd say it's a good site for keeping track of your anime.

Is it? There is a difference between hating something and not caring..

I use it to only keep track of the anime I've watched

I skimmed through the forums once or twice but it's ugly

A true otaku doesn't needs reviews nor anime advices to decide what to watch, MAL was made to keep track animes you watch. Nothing more nothing less...

Never bothered using the forums or paid attention to really any of it. Just recently started using it to track what I've watched.

I was banned from my very first website today.

I signed up for a MAL account yesterday (banned on my first day... so proud) and in a thread discussing beauty I said I didn't mind big women. Then I got jumped on by a group of anti-SJWs who berated me calling me retarded and a whale hunter. I looked at one of their profiles and in it the person wrote about themselves "I'm the nicest person alive" which I quoted and laughed at because he sure as hell wasn't acting like it. And boom. Banned. No warning or anything like that. When I asked the mod why I was banned he said I was "baiting" and "trolling" which... whatever... At least the others were banned as well. It's only a three day ban, but I'm kind of annoyed I was banned at all. I really didn't think I said anything that bad compared to what everyone else was saying about me.

MAL seems to have a lot of trolls who try to turn every thread into a discussion about the SJW movement and how terrible those people are without realizing they're doing the exact same shit that the SJWs themselves do. The irony. I'm not sure if I'll ever go back to that cesspool. There's just so much negativity there. There are a few good people, but their voices generally get drowned out by the countless idiots who infect that place. So if I had to be banned from somewhere I'm glad it was MAL.

What? Why do you need a website to keep track of anime?

Couldn't you just use queues, or if that was inadequate a spreadsheet?

Does nobody use spreadsheets?

I met a fair few friends there, and honestly? For all the idiocy, there is quite a few people who give BlueOni a run for her money. Also, the mods don't generally care about content and fire warning bans lackadaisically. Happens to me.

Yeah, I met a few cool people there. Honestly, it might just be a very vocal minority ruining the place for everyone else, but yeah, some of them are just beyond reason. At least the mod banned a few of the actual trolls along with me.

Slightly OT but thanks to those who mentioned Anime-planet. I just signed up and love the features and such. I've been on MAL for several years and just recently started using it regularly due to how often I've been watching anime.. But AP looks so much nicer.

I closed My anime List-- I felt I was not going on there enough so I keep a book, I just write down the anime I already watched

Only use it to keep track of my anime, mostly because i kinda like having lists over stuff like that. I could just use a book, sure, but my writing sucks, so no thanks.
