Eh, Vampires and werewolves appeal as so-so for me, but started watching Dance in the Vampire Bund anyways.

Anybody also watching, or has finished watching this series yet?

I’ve seen it, it was alright. A painfully slow start, but once they FINALLY finish taking way too long setting up a 12 episode series, it gets better. I don’t care one way or the other for vampires, but it does a good job telling the story it’s trying to tell. I wouldn’t watch it a second time, but it’s worth seeing once.

Religion might be the single worst idea mankind ever came up with.

So sure, keep teaching it in schools so that they grow up to become corrupt politicians who destroy the world within 100 years.

Topic: Off-topic / Rl or online friends

It’s good to have a mix of both, but I prefer rl because there is simply more you can do with people when it’s rl.

All you can really do online is talk and play games.

Topic: Off-topic / First game ever played?

According to my mom, some NES game on my 1st birthday. She doesn’t remember the game.

First one that I remember playing was Mickey Mousecapade when I was like 5 or 6.

Topic: Off-topic / What crappy/not so crappy online multiplayers did you play when you were younger?

Dunno if neopets counts. I have a 12 year old account there that has been most inactive for the last 10 years.

Besides that, I started Runescape when I was 20. Played it off and on, and had the completionist cape 3 years ago, but then quit because I ran out of things to do and got bored.

Now I am considering playing it again and working back to the completionist cape.

The year it was made has never mattered to me. I don’t think animation style has mattered much either for the most part. I can’t remember the names, but I know I have watched some older anime that had terrible frame rates, and that really took me out of it.

It’s the same as I feel with games. How it looks makes almost no difference, it’s the voice acting and the story being told that matters to me.

Fanservice I can live with just about any degree of it. No fanservice is appropriate sometimes, and tons of it is appropriate at other times, as long as it fits the mood of the show. Girls Bravo had a suitable amount of it for the mood of the show, High School of the Dead was NOT appropriate for the mood of the show, and it took a little away from it.

Bright colors work fine if it’s an upbeat show, but it’s a more dramatic story, I don’t mind it having an art style like…Koi Kaze for example.

Topic: Kongregate / Are you kidding me, Kongregate?

Originally posted by Bluji:

Actually, it could work. “can’t post links or images until you meet x requirement”.

If it’s too easy a requirement it’s pointless.

If it’s too hard a requirement it punishes far more than it restricts.

“requirements” do not solve the greater problem, since they can always be worked around. The problem is that anyone can post any picture into any thread with no restrictions. It wouldn’t even matter if there was a near infinite amount of mods, because the picture would still be up for some length of time, and someone could see it.

level requirements mean nothing, I can be level 10 in like 5 minutes on an alt if I wanted.
time played doesnt matter, people can just stock up alts since they are so easy to make.
post count doesnt matter, can just spam any number of dead forums with filler posts that nobody will even see.

I’m maybe missing some things, but the point is the same. Any variation you want to use of requirements is either meaningless, or too strict to the legit people.

Spamming can be ignored, links can get ignored, but pictures you can’t ignore if you don’t turn away fast enough. It is definitely a problem that needs to be addressed quickly.

There is only way to prevent this from happening again, and that’s to universally disable putting pictures in your posts OR make it so that pictures automatically are collapsed unless you click a button to expand them(like spoiler buttons). No “can’t post until you meet x requirement” will work, and banning them won’t work.

It would be a good idea anyway because some people get fussy about too many pictures in threads as it is. I personally think pictures, if tasteful, enhance most threads, even if there are a lot of pictures in a post. By auto collapsing, everyone is happy(except the people that whine anyway, but those people don’t count).

Topic: Off-topic / when was the last time you've donated to charity

A couple times I gave some small amount to some things because it felt like “the right thing to do”.

I came to my senses when I realized how dishonest most charities are with how their funds are used, so I just don’t trust them.

I’ll give my time, but I won’t give my money.

Topic: Kongregate / STAFF, DO SOMETHING OR AT LEAST CLEARLY STATE THAT YOU DON'T CARE

I am constantly amazed at how many people think this is an actual problem.

Ever heard the saying you have to get to the root of the problem or nothing will change? The root of the problem here is that people like to have fun and messing with people is fun. Good luck figuring out a solution for that.

The only thing you said that has any merit is the silent mute. If the only person that knows someone got muted is the mod, then the offender may think everyone muted them and give up. Announcing this mute to the rest of the chat is dumb and completely counterintuitive. I have always thought all mutes should be silent, and they also should be a hell of a lot longer than 15 minutes. 15 minute mutes is pointless.

I can’t wait for Plastic Memories to air so I can get the full version of the PV song. The actually anime looks generic as hell. I have never seen Chobits, but I get similar vibe from it, and Chobits is apparently pretty bad. On the plus side, it’s an original anime, so it could be decent.

Chobits is forgettable, so it’s probably bad. I only remember the basic concept and the “big reveal”, kinda forget everything that happened in between there.

Just based on reading the summary of Plastic Memories, it seems like it might be similar to the setting of Chobits, but I am getting more of a Mahoromatic vibe from it.

No, because as much as I am anti-gay, there is no denying that some people just love the same gender as themselves, and you can’t stop that by making it illegal.

If you don’t like the word objective, then let’s just say that not a sane soul on this earth should believe it can be compared with pedophilia.

It encourages you to have a safe outlet for your somewhat immoral desires. Nobody is harmed by you getting off to animations. It should be legal everywhere.

Say you have someone who has a child fetish. You can claim they are a sad, pathetic, demented criminal all you want, but if they don’t have any kind of outlet for that fetish, then it just increases the chances they try something to a real child.

I think it’s healthy to fantasize, so long as it stays in your fantasies. If someone was gonna do something to a real child, I see no evidence to support that porn increased their odds of committing that crime.

What happens when they get bored of just looking at it? Why do you think child porn even exists? It’s the simple concept of business, if there is a demand then it will be supplied as long as it can be profitable in some way. Saying there is nothing wrong with looking at cartoons is a bit tricky because it can lead to the real thing and this should not be tolerated in any shape or form and saying it’s a “mental illness or fetish” is a bullshit excuse that is granting too many leniencies in todays world.

You know a man cut another guys head off, stabbed him numerous times, ate part of him, and put some of his body parts in his pockets on a greyhound bus? The best part is he didn’t even know the guy or have any motive to do such a thing, the man was sleeping across from him and he brutally murdered him and you know what his excuse was? He forgot to take his meds, but that doesn’t change the fact he brutally murdered somebody for no reason if a person is that fucked up they should not be granted leniency because the law is the law and there should not be an exception for something like this.

tl;dr: You give a man an inch and he will take a mile.

and if you give a man nothing, he will desire everything.

Either way it kinda sucks.

The point of fantasies is that you are removing yourself from reality. I am not buying that it increases the chances they commit an immoral real life act, that is an unfounded excuse that too many people make. I believe this excuse is because people are scared to see what’s under the bed. There are some really bad people out there with a ton of potential to cause big trouble for the rest of us, and we can’t just pretend they don’t exist or else we will be blindsided when they do these things.

You used murder as an example. In that example, the murderer should be executed or given life in prison for obvious reasons. Murder should never have leniency unless it was in self-defense. Murder is objectively wrong. NOTHING can be compared with murder. It is in a class of it’s own.

Pretending what doesn’t exist?

Honestly, I don’t know what you’re referring to.

Pedophillia.
