Well, it might start out as innocent comparisons, but people have different views and its just sooner or later, arguments start. Hence, that is why any poll that is started that compares dramas gets closed on addicts. I was browsing backlogs of the discussion forums and noticed it. So if you consider that you can call the mods at addicts hypocritical too
Heh, I knew someone was going to make this potential
stance, and the reason why it's not strong is because it talks about extreme
cases. Here's why.
As I stated earlier, innocent comparisons of the Japanese Hana Kimi show to other media can provide a healthy and interesting discussion. In the same vein, postings of magazine clips, merchandise, and side-media related to the Japanese Hana Kimi show does the same effect.
The argument people bring up though involve extreme
cases, i.e., the idea of when comparisons, left unregulated, can potentially
turn into tense arguments which can incite a flamewar. But there is an extreme case with postings of clips, merchandise, and side-media as well (same goes with soft subs). That extreme case is when pages are potentially
flooded simply on such items (which has happened a few times). The soft subs already took up two pages before I made a post.
In other words, to not permit one form of discussion because of the potential
of an extreme
case is not a justified reason. My argument still stands, and also demonstrates why the mods/admins aren't hypocritical at all on this. And I'm making a deal about this because I've seen some nasty stuff some people have said earlier in this thread to people who made such comparisons. That's just not right.
What a fun discussion.
