And you need to use that emoticon a lot more often.

Maybe... every time someone says something about "datte ba yo" or how cool romaji is?

1:50 : please answer please
1:50 : ........

You know you've been hanging around a forum too long when people start quoting you and agreeing :P

Maybe in theory. I think 俗語 is the word that people actually use.

Those that want anime translated are the worst. "You speak Japanese right?? Can you translate this for me??" "I thought you said you spoke Japanese" It wouldn't be so annoying if it wasn't on a weekly basis. It's soooo frustrating people!! I don't mind it if they have the patience to actually learn what i'm saying, but it's usually "I don't think so" "In [enter anime here] this person says this and the sub says this" :@

...I just know i'm gonna get shot for this
"Beckham has done it again at Old Trafford!!"

although i am an anime fan i totally agree (cause being a fan has nothing to do with being an idiot :P). not only does it make all anime/manga fans look like stupid 12yr olds without a life, but is also very selfish and annoying - one of those behaviours punishable by forum death :P (the same thing i mentioned more or less)

this forum wisely has a shoutbox and an offtopic forum :) helps redirect most of the pointless self-venting there.
