I mean the title says it all.

Every day on the front page where it shows general discussion forum topics there is always something new and strange. Religion, politics, things happening on the internet, ridiculously personal questions, philosophical questions, etc.

This is a site dedicated to Chinese cartoons, why this.

Oh, it's that thread we see every month or so.

It's what happens when a bunch of escapists with delusions about the reality gather and shallowly look for acknowledgment that they exist. In a sense it's similar to survivor bias, because even if most people on the site are normal, the crazy ones will post more.

Because of this phenomenon, most anime forums are cringe-inducing cancer.

We used to have a "Extended Discussion" forum but that was abolished

What do you expect from a diverse group of people who watch anime? We all have different interests and hobbies and sometimes want to share those, or we want to talk with others about what's going on in the World or in our lives. How is that so weird? It's not really any different than talking to someone about it in real life.

And also, it's Japanese animation, not 'Chinese cartoons'. Nice bait hook, but really quite stupid to do on this site.

What happened to you, GD? You used to be cool

I remember when I started getting more active on the forums, GD was a lot more fun for me personally. Then the Great Merging happened and the extended discussion graveyard was no more. After that, there was a massive influx of religious topics in the First Era, followed by gender topics in the Second Era, finally culminating in political topics in what I've now dubbed the Third Era.

It used to be almost exclusively "ridiculous personal questions" as you call them, but really it was just anything fun since the topics that perpetuate never-ending and unsolvable philosophical debates were carried on elsewhere until they fizzled out.

Recently I've avoided this section like the plague, but occasionally try to bump the fun topics that get drowned out to try to influnce the community in what small way I can.

I guess there are only so many things you can talk about that aren't anime.

The chit chat forum seems pretty cool. Some guy posted pics of his sex doll a while back.
