    Uhh... honestly haven't seen too much of that. Probably drop this topic.

    Well, it's kinda bad if they're the type to ship because it's yuri, but then again given how the series runs the ship teasing all over the place it can be frustrating. I guess it's still not a reason to go after people.

    Well, if you haven't noticed, I have a very low opinion of aggressive shippers especially when they overrun an entire show. It's a legitimate topic of course but it just dominates certain people's writing that you can no longer take it seriously. You'll have shows with so many themes to talk about but all people can care about is being salty over shipping (Read: True Tears). There was also some of that shit I've seen in Fate/Stay Night discussion, and well... I was just like You also get a ton of this with Key stuff, though fortunately Little Busters was mostly free of that kind of shit.

    Part of it has to do with people being unable to accept that you don't need to have major characters in a relationship every fucking show. Frankly the whole talk about people trying to marry them is pretty insulting-- I mean people get married because they love each other, not because for the fuck of it.

    /stares at divorce rates in this country. Never mind.

    Anyhow, i just click the report button at this rate without saying anything. It's impossible to discuss it with folks, so I'll just leave it at that.

    Anyhow, I'd like to thank you for discussing your view on the matter.

    The other thing is that I was actually communicating with Kaijo in the past, but I didn't know that he was no longer communicating with you guys. That's unfortunate really; though I suppose it can be hard at times online.

    I know there are anon subs, but I don't know about their quality either.

    Well, that sounds a bit better, I don't think that would be banned-- at most just moved. But I think the people in discussion were talking more about wanting to see characters they like so it's a bit out of place. I think the problem is sometimes the franchise tends to simultaneously go too much yet too little on these things.

    But I'll tell you why I don't think Fate screentime is mutually exclusive with others. The anime Shirobako has a gigantic cast, yet most of them are very distinct despite not getting much screentime. They have hopes and dreams that are easy to resonate with and it did it all within 24 episodes. The girl in my avatar for example, only had 2-3 episodes of real screentime with maybe one of them strictly devoted to her, yet it doesn't lessen the impact. It seems to be a quantity over quality issue. Basically a lot of the characters have presence without actually being there, and I think the Nanoha franchise could really pick up some of its cues. Another series that manages to do this and is probably more similar in genre is Mai-Hime; also handled it very well.

    And like I said, some people were Fate fans and thus couldn't agree with that point and were still banned, so there's no way to really know.

    Yea they didn't get outright bans, and I feel that was reasonable. It's very hard to be perma-banned from AS. And as for Kaijo, well, I did see his last post, and I think the tone wasn't really going to convince anyone of anything. Let's just say you really have to make concessions to really get things going.

    Well, here's the thing.

    We have had text in black and white prohibiting shipping talk-- and that's constantly enforced. The situation you described, I disagree that not being a Fate fan made you banned, however, even if that were true, it's not set as a rule, nor did the Nanoha forum have any special rules that are affixed to it, nor are any of the rules of the sort made so that's only speculation.

    Even as a Fate fan, I can see that the whole Nanofate focus of the story is not doing the franchise any favors. Vivid isn't doing me any favors reminding me of it. I'm sure a lot of you share this point, but just decided to pin it down on Fate.

    But what do you think? I felt your post was borderline flamebait but you can take my opinion however you wish. If it really wasn't, then just consider how your post can be perceived and you may have to deal with the consequences of the response.

    Rising, I was there too lol.

    This is a cached version of the post that's gone now:

    b) treat this shipping as "serious business" and report posts from opposite ships... repeatedly... hoping to get these other people in trouble and for their ship to somehow "prevail".
    c) flame and bait people in other obvious ways that have been going on, in many cases, for years. (And then, as above, trying to get the other side in trouble when they take the bait.)
    That was a central part of it! It was definitely against the rules. I hope that explains why I was thinking that.

    Also, you are wrong. There were huge Fate fans that were kicked out. What the people had in common that were kicked was because they couldn't have a civil conversation. The Nanoha subforum isn't special; people of all fandoms have similar issues, and yet you don't see mass evictions happening everywhere. Oreimo had people wishing terrible things on Kirino. So what was the difference? The people there took it way too far.

    But that's besides the point. My point is that if you know that a statement is going to lead to discussing banned topics, then don't do it. And there's a lot of passive aggressive stuff that's been going on for years, with people just posting potential flamebait that skirts the rules.

    I really hate to say this, but there were people in both sides that were too busy playing the victim; it really takes two to tangle and I think the moderation was right. Sorry.
