I doubt it, saying softsubs are 'ethically' better than hardsubs because they don't "deface" the video is just retarded. He's probably just making an arbitrary distinction between what's accepted (subtitles, karaoke, signs) and what pisses him off (TL notes).>>10085458
There was discussion about this last night, I think various reasons were: Lawrence is going around begging but he's bringing his woman around like they're strolling around town, which doesn't display an earnest attitude. Also, she might look like a whore or something, and the residents are very conservative about that. And having a good-looking woman also is also considered to mean that you're frittering away your money on her, so it's insulting to bring her around with you when you try to borrow it. Finally, the last guy is probably just a crazy asshole.
