Like the title says. I have only been a member for about a year now, and have loved it up to this point, but I have noticed more and more the elitist, or anime snob if you like to call it that, attitude is starting to rear it's ugly head more and more. One of the reasons I quit posting on ANN was due to this. So has it always been here and I just had my head bury in the sand, or is it simply growing due to CR growing itself?

Or am I simply taking things too personally?

I mean maybe I do, but in order to have a fun conversation (to me) you have to have some common ground and interests, otherwise it all just becomes a big poo-flinging mess.

I haven't noticed anything... but then again I don't really pay attention to those sort of things.

Eh, I always figured I was better than everyone so I never noticed.

I haven't seen more than a few jerks on Crunchyroll (a few of which didn't bother me much at all or I have learned to like them a little more) and only one of them was a snob and I think it might have just been a joke.

Yes. You are on an internet forum, that there should a red flag if you don't like dealing with elitists. They haven't been growing in size; you've just started to notice them more.

Elitists exist in all fandoms and they are rather easy to ignore or avoid.

Yes, you've allowed it to get under your skin.

I honestly haven´t seen that many elitists around here, I don´t even remember what was the last time I saw one. Still, in my opinion and from what I have seen recently, Crunchyroll is probably the place with less elitists around. Seriously this place is heaven when compared to other sites like My Anime List. I don´t visit ANN so I´m not sure if they have problems with elitists as well, but it can´t be as bad as MAL.

Also, jerks are bound to appear anywhere on the internet, it doesn´t matter if it is an anime site, a gaming site, a movie site, elitists will always appear. The only thing we can do is ignore them, they just want to feel better with themselves by bashing on other people´s tastes.

I sense a bit of Abstracting for Thread Importance, so I'm going to have to call Specifics, here:
Okay, what show of yours did everybody pick on....One Piece, was it?

Haven't noticed anything. I assume this perceived presence is actually only in the thread(s) for one show? -.-

The more you look for it you will find it.
The more you think about it, you will dig it up more then others do.

shiit.. well many leave and come back at some point,
So different times, different people, atleast CR got a good/healthy cycle of young users going some leave (personal exp) after a year or 2.

Some just find there isn't much more to "do" here (in terms of series or things they want to know) unless friends, groupes and so on.

Never noticed it. Then again, other forum sections (aside from General Discussion) are half dead.
I'm sure users here don't take things personally.
