I understand your sarcasm but I will have to agree with you for the most part, not all groups have websites, some only have IRC and require authentication (fucking hate nickserv or whatever the fuck it is).
I don't mind IRC but it can be annoying even if you set up preform.
Also some series I only pick up because they are on TT. The last time I asked /a/ for advice was a long time ago and it ended up with me confused with what was sticking out of the loli's pants. Last season my 3s team was named fapping to boku no pico so I guess it was worth it.
