If I write rants, I'm usually able to control myself and not post them. However, a সাম্প্রতিক troll user pushed me off the deep end, and now I have to force someone to listen to this one.
I hate elitists.
This is obviously a general statement, but this is the জীবন্ত spot, so let's narrow it down.
I hate elitist জীবন্ত fans.
Since I've become a member of the জীবন্ত fanbase on Fanpop, I've come to realize these people are my least পছন্দ part of anything anime. Here are some examples of these people, in case আপনি don't know what I mean, and how to explain to them why their douchiness is extremely unfair.
"I've seen আরো জীবন্ত than you, so I'm আরো of a অনুরাগী than you."
Has it ever occured to আপনি that I may have started watching, say, a বছর ago, while you've practically been watching since আপনি were born?
"I've been watching জীবন্ত longer than you, therefore I appreciate it more."
Well, excuse me if it took me longer to get into fucking off on the internet. Pardon me for not having an otaku brother/sister. Sorry my parents thought জীবন্ত was too violent and wouldn't let me watch it as a kid. Just because I started watching it later doesn't mean I don't like it just as much as you.
"I watch জীবন্ত at a faster rate than you, therefore I'm the better fan."
আপনি probably memorize every line দ্বারা rote too. Maybe আপনি should try, I don't know, actually enjoying an জীবন্ত for once?
"I've watched আরো obscure জীবন্ত than আপনি have, so I have a better understanding of জীবন্ত in general than you."
No, আপনি do not understand জীবন্ত in general আরো than I, আপনি only understand those specific obscure জীবন্ত আরো than I. Because I've never seen them.
"I support the franchise দ্বারা buying all the DVD's. আপনি don't. What kind of অনুরাগী are you?"
Okay, under some conditions, I would agree with you. But have আপনি ever heard of circumstances, jerk? Some people can't afford anime; it's kind of *laughs* expensive. Oh, and is buying all of the DVD's really necessary?
Whenever I hear someone say one of these things, অথবা a variation of them, I just want to strangle myself. However, all that was only leading up to my LEAST পছন্দ category of জীবন্ত অনুরাগী elitists: Sub/dub elitists. Though I hate both equally, sub elitists are দ্বারা far আরো common, so I'm focusing my rage on them.
"Only people who watch জীবন্ত in sub are true জীবন্ত fans."
Ugh, nothing is আরো guaranteed to make me lose it. If আপনি don't like dubs, I honestly couldn't give a flying fuck, but the মিনিট আপনি talk down to other people just because they do, আপনি are way out of line. They aren't lesser জীবন্ত fans. They only prefer a different version of the same thing আপনি like. Seriously, আপনি don't have anything better to do than troll people because they don't share your preference? That is uncalled for. Your existance is uncalled for.
I could probably rant about this all day. I could probably think of a hundred আরো irritating elitist sayings; I could make a তালিকা of all the reasons why I think sub/dub elitists suck. However, to preserve the chance that someone might actually bother to read this, I have refrained from doing so. আপনি got the abridged version. Lucky you.
With that, I thank আপনি if আপনি did bother to read this; I really needed to vent, and it's not quite the same if nobody actually reads the rant.
And please, please...don't be an elitist *insert unfriendly word of your choice here*. আপনি really don't want to be the পরবর্তি reason someone writes a rage-induced rant. C8
