>>13740256>What, am I supposed to reply to every thread regardless of whether I care or not?
This wasn't the point I was trying to make. I was trying to say there were threads that were good. ¯\(°_o)/¯
I've never advocated the position that people who don't know how to edit their hosts file are cancer.
Right now, yes, /a/ is a little lacking in unique views, but we're also being given a board where you can actually type out a long, well written, fully elaborated post without worrying about the topic you're replying to being gone, or the person you're replying to being gone by the time you get the post turned in. You can leave a thread for a few minutes and not have it vanish.
That's something of value as well.
As a sidepoint, the underage cancer mentioned is not the group that gives us "meaningfully written responses and impressions about it from a whole spectrum of views". That's why they're called the cancer.
If given reign, what you'll find in /a/ is "the assorted idiocy and circlejerking/ avoiding treading on anyone's toes of most other anime communities."
