I haven't noticed any anime snobs on here. I've noticed plenty of other problems on here though. I've noticed anime haters on here... what the hell are they on this site for?!

I mean I've noticed people saying "xx anime is good" when they should know that all anime sucks.

Then there's those people who say "Anime bores me now" when they should just watch more anime.

Then there's those people who say "Kato best girl" when obviously Utaha is best girl.

But I mean other than that I haven't noticed an elitist presence.

And Ears being the best isn't me being elitist, I'm just speaking the truth.

^ ears/here's to your compelling post - for me, until I see a "no dogs allowed" post - I feel fairly safe across the board among the various topics. I accept that many, many people likely have more experience / exposure to quality anime, so I hope to learn from recommendations and so forth.

I don't think there is elitism per se, but there seems to be folks who see certain anime or entire genres as "problematic", who find any display of sexuality as "sexist", and who basically want to impose their values which are extreme even within the West on a product of an entirely different culture.

Never really noticed...and I honestly don't care what "elitist" think anyways.

No seriously, the above was the sound of me clapping, in real life, very very loudly (my hands still hurt from it).

At this point, you are probably wondering why...

It's because I've found another human being (If you are a bot, I will kill you) that loves Squid Girl at least as much as I do.

The bad news is that this always seems to have been a thing around here. The good news is that the game of elitism seems to be, on CR at least, more like baseball than football: one person up to bat at a time rather than a large group of players taking the field simultaneously. Someone may trash an entire studio's works with no rationale beyond the fact that they're supposedly obviously awful, or they may insist that dubs are sinful things that have no value, or they may pester people for committing the glaring sin of enjoying something they didn't, but they tend to evaporate from the scene as quickly as they came and induce little more harm than a temporary annoyance.

Unfortunately, some of them will stick around for the long term. The best course there is to simply ignore them.
