Hi Crunchyroll forum people.

I was just wondering: what's up with all the random threads? I mean, seriously. The kinds of questions being posted in the discussions right now just seem silly. I'm not going to name them off, because that wouldn't be nice--but can someone please tell me that I'm not alone in finding the subjects really weird and immature?
Are you guys really that bored?
Or are you all just kids or something?
Or strange lonely adults?
It's called google--it's easy and straightforward. Ask your special little questions there, I'm sure it will be edifying. lol

--Anyway. Why can't we all make a concerted effort to actually discuss things that are interesting? Why doesn't anyone want to talk about like...maybe what you thought the meaning of a certain anime was/you have a theory about your favorite manga or anime etc. etc. Like, productive conversation please. Not these idiotic personal questions. Please. Because I'd love to contribute to conversations. But I can literally name an innumerable amount of things that I'd rather do more than participate in a thread about if I fold my socks, or a thread about racism that could have easily just been asked to google instead, out of respect for others.

That's it. It seems like a lot of the threads lack respect for other people.

Like...can't we at least stay on the topic of this website? Must we get all creepily intimate with the questions? It's really strange and seems desperate and honestly makes me wonder why people do these things. Is it loneliness? What's going on people? Why don't you say what you want to say instead of making random threads you don't even care about? Just spit it out and talk to us instead of diverting the issue. Just saying <3

I'm a psychology major, so excuse me for being curious but...this seemed like a more interesting thread that actually tries to answer a real question about all of our interactions here on these forums. Because none of those threads about random stuff are productive at all. Why is it so hard to ask people to talk to you? Honesty is always better than subversion. Well, if that's even what you're after. I have no idea. And that's why I'm posting this thread.

peace, mVIII's~

Because sometimes silly is needed in order to have some fun.

And discussing only serious topics can be depressing and dismal.

We wouldn't want it to be completely dismal.

Tho I'd be fine with more serious threads tho not a complete remove of silly.

There's nothing silly about asking why black people say nigger. It's called go learn some black history. Or go ask google or your parents. Not the internet. It lacks common sense and empathy and honestly has no place on an anime forum. It's ignorant.

Same with the creepy topics of other threads. It seems weird, I'm sorry. At least make funny threads if you want to be silly.

I'm all for fun and silly.

I'm only talking about threads that are pointless and strange. I like silly threads. Those have plenty of purpose even if they're random--laughing is always a good objective

Different tastes.

I find weird questions quite interesting.

Tho I do agree there should be some more serious topics however these random questions are somewhat interesting to have people participate in and see their views on the subject.


Tho I'm sure you could easily take me for not knowing much considering my age on the forums but that is up to you.

You can just ignore those threads if you don't like it. It's general discussion and can be completely random. You can talk about anime and manga in their own section.

True enough. I'm reading Light in August by William Faulkner at the moment.

Suffice to say, it is quite...colorful with its use of language lol

Oh, I do, believe me. I don't participate here for that reason entirely. I would, if it wasn't so off-putting.

That's what I'm saying. It's alienating a lot more people than just me, I'd wager. Not that it matters, but I just wanted to ask why people make those threads. I want to understand so that I can have empathy for those that make them instead of just derision and confusion. You know what I mean?

Its because we want to see what the people of CR think of these random questions and its generally fun (Puns)

However most people will find us to be strange sure but really its up to you if you want to participate and see them.

I've made plenty of threads about weird questions and they've gotten lots of responses allowing me to see how everyone views them and how everyone is making that answer different or agreeing with one another.

As mentioned before these questions are insanely silly but they are intentionally silly.

I mean PV's threads are just weir- I mean amazing.

The only thing you can do really is either participate in our little silly questions or just ignore them I mean they cause no harm they sometimes bring some discussion value so really its all in good fun.

I should just EDIT my other posts but I'm lazy

Who knows. Maybe they're just curious about other people or just make it for fun.

And now here you are curious about them. Why so.

There's a forum specifically for anime/manga discussion if you want to share your thoughts on a particular series. I don't know the specific, correct reason why we like the silly but i bet there's a psychological reason behind it. Maybe our brains seek a little silly to escape from stress lol modern life is stressful. And there's definitely evolutionary psychological reasons behind why we like to talk about ourselves and find out about other people (gossip?) - it's about finding/flaunting yourself as the best possible mate Though that's not always at the forefront of our motives at todays time but maybe it's why our brains enjoy it and do it?
