You have to understand that the very natureComradeJoe wrote:
I know my opinion means close to nothing because i'm "the new guy", but I think you shouldn't be complaining about a few random guys who ask silly questions or express their beliefs that, in Japan, ninjas direct traffic or such, all the while packing hundreds of spelling mistakes in their 4 word posts. The simple fact that in my short stay here I haven't seen the kind of mess one would see on *gasp* gaming forums or, God forbid, manga/anime forums, stands as proof that this place is, I daresay, clean.
So an ignore button is going a little far in this case. You don't like me? Scroll past my reply when you see my name. B)
of this forum differs greatly from e.g. the
gaming forums. This site and the forums are
for the most parts dedicated to the language
and the culture. Eventhough we let loose and
have some funny and outlandish off-topic talk
from time to time, the overall atmosphere of
our forums is highly study oriented and
pedagogic because of our excellent professionals,
native helper(s?), and study eager users.
The fact that many gaming forums don't have
the same quality that this forum has, like you
said: they are like real life arcades where loud
kids run around screaming on coffeine high, is
no reason why we shouldn't maintain our
quality control and this thread even proves
that some people are willing set the bar even
higher. And yes, you haven't been here long
enough to see how many people constitutes
your "few random guys who ask silly question".
For the record, this is just how I perceive
this forum and these are only _my opinions_.
