Not even really Trump. I've seen this sort of logic applied to all parties. That said, I definitely see it of this, uh "banter" as OP put it, from Trump. But I assume that just goes with the territory of Trump's motto of "I don't give a fuck who I attack or how I do it" ideology.

There's a lot of people that don't care about the election on FJ. On FJ, he's just a meme. And really, the best of a terrible situation. All 3 aren't optimal candidates, Sanders couldn't pass anything if elected, and Clinton is a threat to security. I don't see Trump having a large effect either, but at least it's intimidating.

Anime is shit, and if you looked at half of the boards off front page you'd realize a fair portion of the site shares this sentiment, with some exception.

Dark Souls is good. That's like saying sugar isn't sweet. You can choose not to like it, but you can't say it's bad, or criticize it for a design choice that functions well that just isn't to your taste; that's like buying a racing game and complaining that it's too quick.

Of course it's not productive and thoughtful conversation, 25% of the front page in the last month has been some Korean dorito munching nardgarbler from a videogame, you were wrong to expect such a thing here in the first place. Go find a specialty forum for your topic, or get friends to discuss these choice topics with. You don't go South for the Summer.

I disagree. I have had a lot of intellectual debates with people on this site when we have different stances on an issue. I usually get engaged in at least one per week. For example, the last couple of days, I've been debating a few users about Islam on this thread: /channel/4chan/Anon+participates+in+class/TyhjLGl/143#143 , something you couldn't do on reddit where your opinon will be discarded. Anime has a lot of people on either side and I have seen people attempt to bash Trump (although, I think he's great). Darksouls people do get pretty pissy whenever anyone disses it, but half of it is just "git gud" jokes. I love the FJ community and how it is able to foster discussion. That's why I use this site over all others.

For the most part I agree. FJ doesn't have that either, and to an extent we too suffer from excessive dogpiling. Tumblr is excusable since it's a blog site, and blogs are made to be more private since it revolves around individuals with shared interests, rather than a community hub like a subreddit. 4chan/8chan was made for those who wish to express themselves in whatever way they wanted without fear of backlash to like-minded people.

With FunnyJunk, I agree with you for the most part: we aren't better with handling issues. In a number of aspects, they're 'better' than us when it comes down to it notice I never mentioned FJ specifically nor speculated if we were actually good at hosting productive talks. We aren't. . On the other hand I have to defend FunnyJunk to some degree since it was never meant to be a platform for serious debate: we're FunnyJunk, we are, in practice, supposed to post funny and junk. We don't have organized communities beyond what every other site has.

Reddit, however, is rather unique in comparison. For one thing, Reddit is generally every proud of its reputation as the 'smart' place to be. They laugh at the rest of us unironically, genuinely think they stand among the voices of logic and reason, whereas FJers know we ain't shit. another thing, Reddit is organized into thousands of different subreddits, but every newly created account is automatically subbed to a handful, some of which were made for serious discussion: r/news and r/worldnews come to mind. With every user subbed to these places at some point, they corral millions of people to participate in discussion. In practice, this would actually be a great place for thoughtful exchange, but the mods and admins have soiled it. They promote isolation and hivemind activity because they rarely give others a chance to speak out. Users have a chance to be deleted for repeat 'offenses' as minor as saying something rude, god forbid.

In summary, FJ and Reddit are very different situations. We aren't good at it, but we are better than we should be by rights. I think it's understandable that established opinion dominates over less popular ones, but Reddit should hold itself to higher standards in my opinion. They are more significant to the world at large than FJ will likely ever be, and they should capitalize on it. I'm really hoping this is coherent because I'm tired af.

"Anime" is too broad of a statement. Also, nobody even posts Seinfeld related content, so I'd say nobody cares anymore.

A lot of FunnyJunk users support Donald Trump? Unironically?

About half of the US does, so it shouldn't be that surprising. This is also one of few pro-Trump sites. The only other that comes to mind is 4chan, whilst tumblr, reddit, imgur, and facebook are all anti-Trump. I like him a lot and I honestly have yet to see someone bring up a negative of Trump that isn't easily rebutted, usually caused by a biased media. I don't know why people still think liking Trump is a joke.
#29 - anon (06/19/2016) [-]
The big negative that I have with Trump personally is his views on Net Neutrality. Everything else is fine.

#30 - thegamepixel (06/19/2016) [-]
Trump is against Net Neutrality only because of the fact that the FCC is allowed to regulate content. They said they won't, but they shouldn't be allowed to.

i'd say FJ's hard on for Trump is more because they like how he's not afraid to say what he thinks and is anti establishment. i'm sure most people who post positive posts about him don't agree with all of his policies.
i've always felt like the anime is trash meme never really got that much hate. in fact i always saw it get alot of love.
honestly i haven't seen people say alot of bad things about dark souls but that's probably because i tend to skip those posts because i haven't played the games and i don't understand the lore.
honestly i think there is an andundance of productive and thoughtful convsersation among FJ.
i always talk about FJ to my friends IRL and one of the things that i always talk about is how quick people on FJ are to call people out for shit, make sure people cite sources, and in general aren't as hivemindish as other sites.
just the other day i had a good conversation with a guy about gun control on here. and i've had a lot of good talks with people about religion, life, love, and all sorts of things.
but hey, i guess i should practice what i preach. maybe i'm just the outlier, the black sheep. but i like to think that i'm close to the average user on here.

not trying to start shit just giving my 2 cents

Based on the things I've seen him say vs the things I've seen you say, it seems like you shouldn't be pointing fingers.

No way man. Skyrim was a mainstream meme for over a whole year and it was mostly stupid AI and complaints about repetitive phrases. It eclipses Undertale.
